What Did You Learn To Drive In?

Recommended Posts

Just saw a learner driver learning in a Yaris T-Sport from a proper driving instructor.

I remember I learned in a Metro GTi (driving instructor).

What did everyone else learn in and was it a family car or an instructors?

multiple vehicles:

1990 Plymouth Voyager (still have it!) Big box with a 3.0l V6 and a 3-speed slushbox. Proven to be a reliable old beast.

1989 Nissan Stanza (had a half dead engine and smoked like mad) I really loved this thing, despite its dull nature. The only time I didn't love it was when I had to change the sparkplugs (for some reason, Nissan decided the 2.0 4 in this thing needed 8 plugs)

1989 Mazda 323 (learned how to drive a manual in this) This thing was a wreck, and totally unfit for use on public roads (but I drove it anyway.) Suspension wasn't attached to the car at 2 corners, the brakes were iffy, and it leaked pretty every fluid except Oil. But, it had a 5speed, so my parents kept it until I could drive. Sold this one for 30USD
