I'm 17 and i got my license last September (parents made me wait) Here in NY you drive when ur 16 with a lerners permit, and when i turned 17 they made a law about having to wait 6 months after getting ur permit to get your license (i squezzed out of that one)
Anyways i drive a '99 Saturn SC2 and Just to let everyone know, my parents make me pay for my car, i don't get a car for my birthday or whatever like some of you lucky people lol... i'm hoping to get a new car next year before i head off to college but i'll have to wait and see...
permit at 14? thats crazy.. but yea, i live in nj and i just turned 17 so i got my license.. i think its later in like nj ny around here b.c of all the cities.. also the reason insurance costs so much.. my sister, whos 18, and i share my moms old car which is a 93 mercury sable (transmission is shot, it takes awhile to get up to speed ) but at the end of the summer we're selling it and i have to get my own car.. i already started looking and for the longest time i wanted a toyota prius.. its a hybrid which is cool.. and then my mom is like ur not getting a new car cuz first, i just got my license and 2nd i have no money (also the reason i got a job) then my mom showed by the ford escape hybrid and i've been dying for the end of the summer so i could see what the price is and my mom was like u could probably ask ur grandma for a loan and then pay her back with interest so i thought i was set.. but then the other day i was like i cant wait to get that car and shes like, uh, ur not getting that car.. i still understand why all of a sudden i cant get.. whatever.. so i started looking at used cars and i found a 2001 civic for $4000.. it says everything works, but that seems kind of low for a fairly new car.. i dunno what im gonna get tho.. but it really bothers me that some parents buy their kids a new car.. like, dude, let them learn how to fend for themselves.. get a job, earn some money, and if u have to drive a crappy car, well at least it moves..
that was so long and unnecessary (cuz u just asked what kind of car we have or will have) but whatever lol
yea im in the same situation as cruisechic is...my parents are making me pay for my car and my insurance they might pay a little but ill hav to pay them back. Jus lik i am now with my permit--i hav to pay for the driving school and my insurance cuz they put me on their insurance-- but my dads looking for a camaro or trans am that needs some work cuz hes a mechanic so we can find one cheap and fix it up. IDK im hoping i get one but my one preference is convirtible but ill settle for a T-top. its hard to find cars that need work tho, lik a tranny or even a motor cuz a lot of ppl dont put them up for sale cuz they dont think people will buy them. So u really hav to look for that stuff. Hopefully ill get what i want or close to it and will still hav money for college and what not

Where do you guys get all of this money to buy these expensive cars? My parents don't even want me to have a car because they think I will wreck it. But if I want one I have to buy it myself and pay for the insurance. That means I got to get a job. So I get my permit in 2 months when I turn 15 1/2. Even if I don't have enough money to buy a car at least I will be able to fly because I am getting my pilot's license next year.
Yea, my parents told me i would wreck mine too so i couldnt get anything to nice....... i have a 2001 cougar. I got it when i turned 15 so i guess its good for now, all my friends like it so i guess its cool. i wanna land rover tho.
Here's a pic of the car my sister and I share...we love it! our parents got it for us, but i dont think they trust us that much yet...our 16th bday was at the end of march, so we've only had our licenses for a little bit...lol
