If you’re regularly on this page, looking at old car photos, it wouldn’t surprise me at all if your first “drive” was on one of these Drive-Mobile Drive Yourself Road Test arcade games, built by International Mutoscope of New York. Some didn’t have the seating area, but rather you stood in front of the machine like most other arcade games. This one was seen a few summers ago at the Buffalo Transportation Pierce-Arrow Museum in Buffalo. It came from the Crystal Beach Amusement Park in Canada, and I know that personally I put quite a few coins into this one's slot. If you’re interested, as this is written there’s one just like it for sale on eBay with a buy-it-now price of US $4,395. Let me know when you take delivery and I’ll be right over.
