Ima4nic8or: The problem is that todays young folks are lazy-ass dead beats. Cars have always been quite expensive but when I was 16, in the early 80s, I managed to cover my own gas plus still have plenty of money left over to buy beer and go on dates, etc.. I did this amazing thing that apparently none of todays young folks have heard of. I went to work, about 10 hrs a day each Sat and Sun. I also didn't expect to drive the newest car. I had a well worn early 70s Pinto. I realize all the snowflakes today expect to have a brand new 25k car but I settled for less. The parents did help some by covering insurance and car repairs but to be honest I probably could have covered those too, even though I was only making $10/hr, if I did not spend so much on beer and pussy.
LoneWolf343: fusillade762: It's not just Florida. Most teens these days would prefer a smartphone over a car.Smartphones are considerably cheaper, for a start.
