yea,thats exactly what im doin,but over 1/4 of mine was paid for when i totaled the other car and recieved the ins. I had completed my payments on my old sunfire,was rear ended,then bought this one with the money. But every single addon was paid for by me on both cars. The only vindication i got was watching my friend in the STi whoop the hell outta that db in the focus,even tho it was a family kill i loved every second
2003 Frost Silver ZX-III aka. Aries

This Lambo once tried to race me. Yea thats right, I said tried... Because he didn't know about my Turbonator.

When i turned 16 my dad gave me his car it was a very nice car c 32 amg benz. I loved that car to death. Although all the ppl at my school thought i was a rich spoiled brat. I never acted like one. I ended up crashing that car it was way too much power for a new inexperienced drive so i took the insurance money and bought something that was gonna let me live through highschool lol. Now that im in college i'll be buying something with more power because i'll be respecting the power.My theory is you just got what u can afford.I never put any1 down because of what they drive. the only time i say something is when someone puts me down other than that i never say anything and ppl who put stickers and weird ass crap on their car well i say stuff about them only because i feel bad for the car because its helpless because of its stupid owner. As far as mom and dad buying their kids cars they should also let the kid know not to act like a douche because they could have it hard like someone who has to work and go to school to keep their car

Buy-Sell-Trade Rating: (8) first car was an 81 honda accord (whopping 1.5k for it)...i drove the hell outta that thing until i rear ended someone (damn studded tires on dry pavement). buying your own car that you worked for makes you appreciate it that much more.
