What kind of car should I get?
first off, i didnt know you were aloud to drive @ 14 here in the US. i was always told 16 (w/ a permit)
Secondly, with what you have to spend, i'd get something that is a Manual. this way once you learn how to drive a manual, you can drive either transmission w/o the excuse of saying you dont know how.
but on what kind of car, is up to your preference. Me, personally, if i didnt dump a load of cash to buy my 2003 WRX, i might have looked for a 98-01 Impreza, so i could save up the money, and do a full STi swap (for a sleeper look)To Finish First,First You Must Finish
no we cant drive at 14. lol im getting one that i can fix up until im 16.
haha. that'd be sweet to drive at 14. and i would of been able to spend like 3 grand but my brother just got his car which was 4 grand. >_<. So I can only do 1500 now. but my bros is nice. and he did alot to it already. so yeah, like his runs and stuff hes 17, hes got like alot in it already. but like i want one that needs like some new parts and all. but i cant find any other good sites besides autotrader.
Well, it depends on your priorities. In my opinion, get a truck. I'm not sure where you are located, but an older truck with a V8 and some mudder tires is loads of fun. I'm talking 1960's and 1970's era Dodges and Fords.
eh, im not so sure about a truck although i was thinking on getting a truck. I mean it'd be cool, cause i'll sadly prolly be working with my step dad as a landscaper. haha. But they make food money actually. Yeah and i can go off roading with it, if i'd like. haha. but im located in PA. So i'll look at trucks tonight on autotrader.
ive been to PA before, and the towns ive been to, stuff are really spread out. (ive gone to Somerset country and around there) id think about getting something thats probably good on gas. perhaps an S10, or a Ranger if your still thinking of a truck.To Finish First,First You Must Finish
An old TVR S series thing. No idea if you would be able to find them in the US but fast simple and should be easy to work on.
EDIT: Just looked at your price limited, the cheapest s you'll find over here is about 4 grand sterling, so 8 us dollers and there rare over there, I think.
You really need to say what you like, trucks (evil things unless it has a v10), mustle car, sports car, sensible car...-----[imglink]http://i147.photobucket.com/albums/r289/pherelas/SigCustom.jpg[/imglink]. . . . . . Why is it always a wrong number, what if there in the wrong house? . . . . . . .

Yeah the exotics i've seen in real life would be, A Ferrari F40? (i forget what the numbers are. haha), Lotus Elise, Lambo Gallarado.
but thats all.
and i really would like to find a beat up muscle car or something i can turn into a ricer. rofl.
I've seen quite a few exotics living in Phoenix and going to Scottsdale. In fact, I've seen the only Mclaren registered in AZ. I've also seen Lambos, Ferraris, Rolls Royces, Bentleys (saw one a week ago), and quite a few Lotus Elises. Then you also have the typical MB SL55s over here. Makes you a little envious to drive over there lol.
And I wish I could find a TVR for 8K here. I have NEVER seen one of those in person and have seen very few pictures of them.
And how about a Jeep?
^^^im looking at trucks in a few minutes on autotrader, cause im probolly just gonna work with my step dad at first anyways when im able to drive. so why not get a truck? and ill save up for a everyday car while i work.
I want this eagle Talon so bad.
Hopefully that link works. lol.
link worked. and Y is it only $950? (didnt really look @ anything else 'cept the pic)To Finish First,First You Must Finish
in south dakota we can drive at 14.... im almost 16 and ive been driving for almost 1 1/2 years.... but we just havve time restriction until we turn 16.... like i cant drive b4 6 a.m. or after 10 p.m.
^^ your lucky. and CAPN WAKKA. Its a good project car, i mean i'll probolly just get a new hood like a tuner one anyway, then it needs a new bumper so i could save for a body kit, and not bother to get the stock one. know what i mean?
My opinion would be to ask your parents to put the money aside for you because you don't know what you mgiht want in the next two years and what ever you do want mgiht be cheaper when you want it leaving with more money to use on mods.
i guess its cuz my car really sticks out cuz its yellowTo Finish First,First You Must Finish
14 if you live far far away from the city, and one of the employees of a company where my dad was during a business trip said that in Arkansas, if you can drive a lawn mower,u can drive a car, all you have to do is drive in a circle and ur done. lol
