Stay Off the Roads Part II

I took Zach to the DOL to get his learner’s permit today. His grades are where they need to be so he’s in driver’s ed this semester, and it’s time to teach him to drive. I think.

We went straight from the DOL to an empty parking lot so he could do 20 minutes of practice driving. I let him drive the half mile or so home, and I’m proud to report that I didn’t have to use the imaginary passenger side brake pedal once.

In honor of the occasion, I photoshopped Zach (badly) into his dream car, the fabulous electric Tesla Roadster (see Jay Leno’s Garage video).

Enjoy driver’s ed, Zach, and then your new freedom!

    I can understand why he’d want a Tesla. They’re too cool for school.

    Good luck, Zach!

    Ooh, the Tesla is a sweet piece of tech!

    I second the good luck-wishes, Zach!

    Yay Zach, and best of luck! And Jeri, the Photoshopping is better than I could do, so yay you, too!

    Fun. I’d like a spin in that car. :)

    Have you guys watched “Top Gear”? Very fun car show. It makes me laugh every time I see it.

    Hopefully, within a couple of weeks, Zach’s skill level will be such that he can drive any time we go somewhere as a family and he can start racking up hours toward that 50 required for his license.

    The photoshopping still has a halo from the cut and paste, not to mention the wrong lighting – there’s a way to get rid of that but I’m too lazy (and out of time) to look it up and fix it.

    I’d like a spin in that car too! On the Leno video it was super odd to watch him drive such a zippy but utterly silent car. I’ve never seen Top Gear – but another friend mentioned it a few months ago – I’ll have to take a look.

    Congrats Zach – and don’t get caught!
