My instructor had a yellow Ford Capri which I loved to drive. My Dad had something called Wolsey which I had to double de clutch, think that was the expression. I only ever want to drive automatics now! How about you?
I passed in an austin mini. I was also taught to double-de-clutch.
I now own my first automatic and I love it. Though I have found out that it the automatic gearbox needs an oil change, and they cost £160. Which is cheaper than a replacement gearbox at £4500, and that is a re-conditioned one...
Oh my - I cannot for the life of me remember what the instructors car was, but I had a mini at the time, then 2 weeks after passing test bought a 3 litre Capri. I then changed my car pretty much annually and nearly bought an American TransAm until I realised it wouldn't fit through the gateposts of drive lol.
A blue mini belonging to my driving instructor .... a few months later he was out in it with another learner driver when they were involved in a bad accident and it was written off (accident was not the fault of his learner driver by the way ... he was a good instructor!)
