I'm sorry, but i could not just go by letting this go by unoticed.
The cars that most of you guys are talking about are nothing any parents would give to their 16 year-old children.
Supra?! ...did someone say that a MUSTANG would cost too much insurance?
and btw...a mustang is an American Muscle car (to whoever said that a mustang is a tuner, LOL!)
Oh, and I'm more of a chevy guy..mustangs are alright, but a 1999? I'm sure there are a few good ones out there...lol, and a LOT of other ones that ppl drive cuz it's got the "Mustang" name on it, and it's cheap...don't get me wrong, my buddy owns a roush stage 3, and i agree it's very nice, but it doesn't sound like you (or your parents) can't afford something crazy..and having a fast car is a HIGH risk of auto accident for teens(hence the insurance)...i'm sure your parents wouldn't like that at all
to give you some honest advice...you're only about to get your license and your parents aren't rich, i'd figure..Have you even ever driven a manual before? it's nothing u can't get used to, but most ppl don't even learn mt at all these days! it's nice to have a dream, and make it come true...but don't try to pimp out your mom's old car. spending more money than a car is worth is not a good idea. don't waste the time and energy trying to look cool and drive fast...we have all done this(and sometimes still do)...AND we have all had friends die in stupid street racing accidents (whether it's their fault or not, they die and injur other people)...
what I did when i was 16...get whatever your parents will give you...and if it breaks down, FIX IT!..if it's an old car, i'm sure a few small projects would be fun and more gratifying. and later, go through college and get a good job...and even then, you still may not be able to get that dream car...goto college and come out driving a sweet nismo 350Z like me (parents helped me with that cuz I got a full scholarship to my university)...you should be tricking out a newer gen car that actually has a lot of potential before you even begin making mods. I was supposed to be looking for some nice stuff to do to my dash, but I saw this...just sorry.
