    I made the mistake of not saving up for a car until now....I just started saving up..dont have a job yet so its slow money. I am getting a job over the summer and hopefully by then ill be at least 1/2 of the way there. I have only $230 in the 'car' fund. Probably wont end up getting my liscence for another year anyway, not sure what the rules are about how soon after your permit can you get a liscence, and its different everywhere basically. Basicaly i want a 2 door hatchback as a first car. Any VW golf or GTI, or maybe a used Ford Focus hatchback, or civic hatchback is fine by me.

  9. Congrats! Just make sure that you're not another teenage statistic. When you're driving, remember that tickets and accidents cost you lots of money. If you want those Stingrays, drive smart and you shouldn't have too much to worry about. Keep it safe.

  10. Yeah i got my liscence about 5 months ago, and I have found to be a heck of a lot more careful on slippery conditions (ice, snow, water-just in case you never go outside ;) )
  11. yeah the last time it rained i figured out why they say to turn into the skid and not away...lol.

  14. man, there are plenty of kick ass cars in the US, we aren't all soccer moms (for yall in the AU, soccer moms are basically bitches turned super protective mothers that will stop at no end to cause the destruction of you if you hurt their 'baby', thus their forcing their children to play soccer because it is soo safe....bunch of pussies) anyways, i mean we got great cars like ...uhhh...BMW convertible..uhh...oh yeah old Mustangs are the pimp....ok maybe you're right
  15. Don't worry - soccer mums are making an invasion over here too... :rollno:
