'61 Chevy. Stick shift and extra clutch pedal for teacher. I'd been driving an automatic since I was eight or nine, put seat up and looked through the wheel of a '50 Chevy.

Drivers ed taught me to use a stick shift and change a tire.

1979 Ford Fairmont provided to the high school by the only car dealer in the school district. I remember so many people complaining that they saw the driver ed teacher driving it over the summer that the dealer actually ran an ad in the paper explaining they ask him to drive it because it's better for it than sitting at the high school all summer. Dealer went out of business years ago.

1983 or 84 Plymouth Horizon hatchback. I think it was a 4 door. Automatic and as slow as a sloth, but then that makes sense. Drove it all over the north suburbs of Roseville, New Brighton, etc., back in the summer of 1985.

Two vehicles in the ski town I grew up in:

* 1984 Subaru wagon turbo 4wd :))) with manual transmission that mid-term got replaced
* 1986 Sentra base (like vinyl seats, no power steering, no radio, 4 speed manual). My drivers ed teacher left the factory plastic sleeve on seats, it was a bit miserable on hot days leg sticky to plastic bag.

Drivers ed instructor was incredible teacher. If it was snowing (school rarely cancelled) she'd take us into unplowed parking lots ask us to get car to 30 MPH and then she'd jerk the wheel and apply brake hard to get car into skid and expect us to recover. I learned sooooooo much from that lady about real world driving in New England.

She even taught us to drive a hairpin turn over the speed limit:

Good times.


Coolest because the engine wouldn't start... LOL



Well, it was cool at least while it ran. LOL

2001 Toyota echo sedan was what I did drivers ed in. My head was pushing on the roof and my foot would make contact with both the gas and brake pedals due to how close they were so I had to angle my foot to avoid clipping the brake. It had decent get up and go for the highway portion but the interior was not well suited for me due to me being tall.

For my Motorcycle class, I got to learn to ride on a 09 Honda Rebel 250 (CMX). Nice, easy to handle and very good looking as well.

Took it in 63 and do not remember what the car was. I do know it had 3 on the column, but that's about it.
