Dylan Hall learned to drive in a 1971 Pontiac Firebird.
With help from family friend Kenny Moyer along with the use of Moyer's 1971 Pontiac Firebird the teenager soon mastered the floor-mounted gear selector lever of the automatic transmission and other driving skills.
From front to rear the gears are Park, Reverse, Neutral, Drive, Second, First.
Hall became enamored with the clean lines of the sporty Firebird and informed Moyer that he would like to buy the car when he was old enough to get a driver's license.
Moyer gave the teenager a bargain basement price for the car with no idea that he would follow through on the deal.
Hall saved the money he made working at a local car wash facility and any other odd jobs he could find in order to accumulate the required money to purchase the Pontiac.
“The day I got my driver's license I bought it,” Hall says. That would be May 2, 2009. At that time the odometer had registered 114,000 miles. Moyer honored the price that he had made years before for the car.
