1959 Lincoln Mercury WagonRead more
My first driving experience was in a 1959
Lincoln Mercury Station Wagon. When I
was 13, my dad would send me to the store
to get milk and some cigars for him. Was
lucky no one caught me. But he knew I had
been around cars since I was 6 years old.
(We were a racing family from Michigan.
Around the tracks and pits all the time.)
And I used to pretend driving an old 1951
Hudson we had in our front yard, along
with a 1962 Hillman.
Took my first driving test in the ‘beast’. Got
a 100 % on both the written and the driving
tests (and in those days this included
parallel parking !). They even put a placque
on the DrivoTrainer for me.
A small side note…Got my first ticket the
same day I got my license. Pulled out of a
parking lot at dusk and as I did I turned on
my lights. Cop said I should have turned on
the lights sooner.
