It was perfectly OK for my little brother to take the car without a license but I couldn't. My father told me I didn't have jewelry Balls said the queen, If I had them I'd be king. But that was 40 years ago. Things are different now. The guy can do whatever he wants to do, just think posting it on the internet isn't the smartest idea. This shit is forever. We were stupid but there was no proof back then that followed you.

^whippersnappers just don't know not to reveal how often, nor when exactly, they drove off from the driveway in the Volvo 245DL that eventually was bequeathed to them as DD.

1973 Ford LTD. It was freakin yellow. Didn't even have passenger side view mirrors - they weren't standard equipment yet.

My girls are adults now, they learned on my work trucks, driving crew-cab v8's in tree hugger cambridge gave them the confidence to drive anything anywhere

Hold your fire, yes they were mass permit holding drivers at the time

I just want my kid(s) to have experience, learn good driving habits early is the key imo

I wasn't firing at you. Your kid, your call. Just said I didn't think it was a good idea to post it on the net.

Not directed @ you, hold your fire was aimed at others that consider me a di*^ for breaking state laws

A logical leap is not one you are making here.

But you know that, and you are going to go ahead and do it anyways. I just hope no one gets hurt. Particularly innocent third parties and your son.

Let's pray for all the family's in KC and Des Moines they legally have 14 year olds driving

Yes I agree with you it's young to be driving and I could loose my shirt because of my liability (letting him drive with a out of state permit)

I appreciate everyone's comments and criticism

learners permit = learning to drive, parents in the car with him, he's not going on the autobahn or picking up hookers at midnight with a 1/5 of vodka in his lap (that's his uncle) he's taking his mom to the market and to the dry cleaners (think Sunday driver)

We called it "The Pickle Wagon". Pea soup green, had been thru a sand storm in Mojave and the paint was pitted/sanded. Wasn't anyone around in 1975 who knew how to paint a Swedish car, so IF I tried to wash it, there was green running down the driveway, and mom wouldn't let me use anything to dry it off.

Off topic

Did your family originally order the Antarctic Blue Super Sports Wagon with the CB radio and the Rally Fun Pack for its cross country trip?

Every time I hear metallic green anything I think of the Griswolds

My god, that movie was over 35 years ago

She beat the shit out of that car. About 3 years later she was ready to finance one and start building her credit....I said I only want you to remember one thing.

Driving around a dented car that you are making payments on really sucks. She took a lot better care of that one!
I got my license when I was 15 and 4 days old. No such thing as a learners permit back then, and you had to be 15 to drive. Few days of quick lessons, and I was unleashed on the world with a full license.

I had been riding motorcycles since I was 8, and tractors from about the same age. Had a gas powered go-kart prior to that. Drove cars on the farm since I was about 12, So I wasn't exactly new at handling vehicles with a clutch etc.

I just fear what will happen if a squirrel runs across the road in front of him, because he will surely chase it until he crashes into a tree.....

In NY, as long as you took drivers ed in school, you got your permit and could get your license at 16 and drive as long you had a licensed driver with you. Back then, there was no age restriction on said licensed driver so I could be with an older friend and it was OK. At 17 it was a full blown no restriction license.

Oh..it was the same here. I grew up on dirt bikes, go-karts, tractors at my Grandfather's place....hell he even made me drive the old "three on the tree" truck if we had to go somewhere and he had been partaking in a little too much of his favorite beverage!

Holy cow...same here. This one was Olive Green. I actually bought my first car...a 1981 Ford Mercury Capri that had a 302 in it. Dad caught me roasting tires in it one day...and took it away and put me in the LTD until I "learned my lesson".

Told me...you won't spin the tires in that one day when I was leaving. Being a little rebellious....I pulled out in the road (It was a desolate road in front of our house)...drove about 50ft forward while he was standing in the yard.

I then put it in reverse and floored it. When I got it going as fast as I could manage, I immediately slammed the car down into drive without pulling my foot off of the gas.

The car lurched to a halt...paused...then slightly chirped the tires as it started back forward.

Lost my license for about 2 weeks after that incident!

I asked my kids is it still a big thing to get a drivers license? I know I counted the days hours before I was legit

Most just say I'll take a Uber, I asked my kids about other teens wanting to drive they said it's more like half want it half don't care

Reasons? Lots of reasons but expense was #1 in my little survey



So last night I searched news articles about the decline of teens wanting to drive, that's what you do when your in the ER pissing out blood and a chatter box needle addict drag queen is sitting next to you, just acted busy on my phone not to communicate back

So I got some useless info to share with you all


Some info I found:
Only 22 percent of licensed drivers are less than 30
Only 75 percent of 19 year olds, and 49 percent of 17 year olds, have bothered to obtain a driver's license
