Damned straight on that, plus having grandpa's alfalfa fields to slide around in sure helped also.

Most of the young people driving today grew up learning on front wheel drive and that's part of the problem. Just give me rear wheel drive and I'll take you most anywhere.

That was when driving was part of the school curriculum, at least in my era, and everybody took it. Nowadays it is pretty $$$ to take any drivers training and the least expensive driver training schools are a joke.

Most people don't even know to keep their hands off the top of the wheel so that if they have a frontal crash, they don't end up breaking their arm on their face when the airbag goes off. The good schools teach the 4 oclock, 8 oclock hand position, which is better for leverage anyway. Look around you when you drive and see all the people with their hand draped on the top of the wheel.

When I was learning to drive "air bag" was a derogatory name for the mother in law.

I have wondered when they stopped telling those learning how to drive what the lever on the left side of the steering column does....

I totally agree but unfortunately that is MOST people. I learned how to control oversteer skids on a frozen lake in Minnesota! Nothing to hit. Dad made sure I knew how to control the car. Later in life, I did a lot of autocrossing.

But sadly, most people are issued an operator's license not a driver's license.
