    When I asked my father if I could learn to drive... he said.. "you learn to drive on a motorbike first son".
    he was right (as usual), one appreciates road conditions much more when learning to "drive" a motorbike.
    It was not until four years later that I took my driving test and my bike riding has held me in good stead since.
    Thanks trevskoda thanked for this post

    While i was learning to drive my dad saw a 15 year old car that he reckoned would be great for me - once i passed my test.
    After parting with a whole 15 we came away with a 998cc Morris Traveller !
    I really had the incentive to pass my test as quickly as I could then.

    In the meantime, mummy was driving 'my'car as the second car in the now 2 car family.

    After having my first test cancelled due to weather I then passed my test, which was eventful enough in itself.
    As it was, back in us old farts day, you were asked the questions after the practical - i ended up arguing with the examiner!!
    But, hugely surprised as I was, he still passed me.

    I duly caught the bus out to see my mum & let her know I had passed my test - and she was well chuffed.
    That was until i asked for the keys to 'my' car so that i could go and pick my wife up from her work !!!

    I didn't realise i was driving on my own until I came to a set of traffic lights about 5 miles into the journey - nobody to tell me what to do !!
    we decided to go out for a drive that night and she asked her mum if she would like to come with us - her only question was - did I have a licence to drive in the dark ???? lol
    That car took us everwhere and never missed a beat - obviously all parts came from the scrapyard too.
    Great days

    First car i bought when i passed my test (some time back 1985 ish) was a very second hand triumph herald 13/60 (1300 cc and a whole 60bhp) Giovanni Michelotti styling at it's finest

    Nigh on identical to this one in valencia blue but with GT6 wheels

    35346631980_49080b716b_b.jpg

    Drove the pants of it whilst keeping it on the road via bits from scrap yards etc ....learned early on that the hard to was only bolted on with 3 bolts across the rear panel and 3 at the front so was VERY easy to unbolt and remove for sunny days .


    Rather sadly ive still got it buried in the garage ...very unroadworthy BUT one day i'll have the time (Along with the 5 old landrovers etc etc etc )
