Dad took me out for stick shift practice in a 1969 Ford F150. We ran out of gas during driving practice. That day, I learned:

- Check your fuel gauge before leaving

- How to find the nearest station (before smart phones)

- how to beg a gas can from a station

- how to prime a carburetor with gas

- how to not get a big gas can b/c its heavy

So, driving practice that day was more than just wheel time.
