Ahhhhh scary! (JUST KIDDING!) Congrats 08v Junior!

Makes me think of when I first got my G1... the day I turned 16... this summer it will be 9 years... dang I am getting old

Maybe its not a bad thing that she learn to drive on your V. I firmly believe that people who learn to drive in a manual transmission vehicle are better drivers. Why? Because it makes you more in tune with the vehicle, and more involved in the driving process, as in you are concentrating on it more. As a result I think we get better drivers.

Congrats to your daughter! Getting the G1 was definitely an exciting day! My dad took me driving in the family minivan right after I got mine!

Nice! I hear ya about lots of room! I actually started driving when I was 13 or 14, but just on backroads around here lol. So when I turned 16 and got my G1, I drove home from the mto office and drove pretty much everywhere after that!

Its the beginners permit here in Ontario. You can only drive during daylight and with a fully licensed driver.

Drove up and down our country back road for half an hour today. She was mostly in third gear and did very well. Learned to reverse today too! Congrats!
Wife says she's clear to drive Mommy's Altima now lol
