All I'm saying is that it must be nice to be 16 and be able to have all that. When I was 16 I had to work for anything I had. Hard to afford a 30k truck and go to high school don't you think? I'm not hating, just saying it must be nice.
So I'm cheap? I have a wife and step-daughter with a mortgage and 2 car payments. I have responsibilities that come first. Maybe one day the mods will come. But that's easy for some of you to say, 19 and 20 years old. Do you pay a mortgage and a truck payment or rent? If so then good for you, but that doesn't give you the right to disrespect me. I work hard for what I have and I'm damn proud to have what I do. I learned at an early age the value of a dollar unlike some of my friends that had new vehicles given to them and they didn't appreciate them so I just hope the OP does. And If by chance he did work for his on his own then my hats off to him as he does get it then. But I don't have to sit here and defend myself. Maybe I shouldn't get on this damn club, seems nobody has respect for one another, I get enough of that in the real world, don't need that shit on here.
If parents want to buy their kids a car it should be a beater. Make them pay insurance/gas and repairs. That will teach them the value of a new car.
I'm damn proud that I bought my first car by myself. Not one penny was given to me. It was an amazing feeling to earn that, and I learned a lot about the value of money and proper research. How many spoiled 16 year olds learn those lessons when their parents just hand a brand new car to 'em?
