Talk about anything that floats your boat (no pun intended). This is general talk about anything not related to boating/fishing.

Tractor. It will teach them driving and backing. Even backing up with a trailer. They can also help bring the groceries from the car to the house with a trailer.

Kia Soul, high crash rating, lots of room for a small car/box, not bad MPG and not too costly.
