I didn't even have my own car till I was 18. My parents had 3 vehicles though so I had the honor of driving their 90' Ford conversion van. My dad tried to sell it to me several times, to all of which I replied "No". Saved up and got myself a decent car while several of my friends kept buying beaters which would die after a year or less.

A little late to the party but I'm not surprised that this thread exists. A forum works much the same way as another institution that is sadly going into decline: your local public library. Many of the youngest generation simply have no clue how it works.

You do NOT bug your librarian for the location of the ancient Phoenician city referenced on page 2 of the World Encyclopedia in the Geography section -- that's called being a useless bitch. I would find it understandable if you can't find the World Encyclopedia; as a one-time library volunteer I have no issue showing people where the book is if they can't find it.

On a forum, the book you're looking for is called a thread. If can't find a particular thread, I personally have no issue directing newbies to threads. Mazdaspeedmyk is an angel for compiling his FAQ post and handing it to everyone like a list of "must-reads". But if anyone actually asks me for that Phoenician city I will be really, really disappointed.


Edit: Purchasing-wise, I bought my car in full. I did need some help to soften the blow but the large majority came from my checkbook. I figured I'd rather owe my parents than an external lienholder.

im late too, but I'm 18 and pay for everything but my phone bill and the first phone on it..... car payments come out of my pocket, as do the insurance and gas and mods/repairs. My mom did my down payment when I first got my car and finances me if i have a really expensive repair (like when I did all my shocks and control arms and two bent wheels) but I still have to pay for them! just in monthly payments of at least $100.

Having a job and not wasting money on useless things/being smart with it goes a long way.

If you're 18 and your parents are paying for your housing and food and all that, there's not much reason why you can't help your single mom out by getting a job and paying for your shit. Just my 2 cents. I try not to be the entitled brat that seems to be the common creature in my area. (and the internets)
