BUT I found a good friend who agreed to help, and we had our first lesson today, driving around and around a high school parking lot. In some ways it felt familiar, and in some it felt like I was learning to drive all over again. I'm not a natural with mechanical stuff (to put it mildly), so I was nervous and a little tentative. Was worried I'd do something wrong and damage the car! But other than stalling it a few times while stopped on a slight incline as I tried to get it to go (I hear that's pretty typical), things started to click. I started to get the hang of letting off the clutch as I eased on the gas to make smoother transitions. I began to see how this could actually be FUN.
Recently Dad found and purchased the car he REALLY wanted but hadn't been able to find, a '60 "Squarebird". So awesome that it apparently can't be contained in a single photo. ;)
Hoping to do more than just sit in them the next time I visit Ohio. And I'll have fun fun fun till my Daddy takes the T-birds away!!!
