First Timer

I'm turning 16 Tuesday, May 11, same day I am going to the DMV to get my permit. I know I know, I have been hesitant to drive, thatís why I have pushed it back some. But today my dad took me out in his corolla, which I will get, and we went to a Blue Shield parking lot. I have to say, driving is so much easier than I thought it was and after today I am a lot more confident. It was pretty fun because I live up in the hills in Cali so this parking lot was built on a grade with a lot of interesting twisty turns. I'm very excited, my dad said I was really good at keeping aware, and that my turning and braking was very good. I also parallel parked the first time I had ever tried it.

The reason I am posting this here (which I know a lot of you are wondering) is because I have been saving money for a while to buy a Focus. But I just felt like sharing this happy news.

Hope to someday post with you veterans in my very own focus.

Best wishes, Adam.

Well word of advise...Do not get in any accidents in any car, or any tickets, cause insurance will rape you like michael Jackson does to his lil boys....I am in the process of getting insurance on a diff car and i got a quote of 6000 for 6 months...with 2 accidents at my fault, and 1 not my fault...
