My first car was a 1936 Model Y Ford. My dad bought it for £10 and gave it to me on my 11th birthday in 1954.
I learnt how to drive in that car by using it all over our farm in Ireland. I did all my crashing into haystacks, hedges and ditches before I was allowed on the roads.
After some fifty years of driving in most countries of the world (HM Forces) I have never had an accident. (touches wood rapidly). Had I not had the opportunity to learn control on that farm, I am sure I would have caused mayhem on the local roads.
I sold the car in 1992 for £11
£1 profit after 38 years
