My youngest son came to live with me this past August and at the same time my oldest turned 18. There I was with an extra $1025 a month. Just before Christmas I bought jake a 95 Stang V-6 beater. I drove a little bit and it really was a POS but he so proud that his 1st car was the same as his dad's (me) a mustang. I hated that he was proud of a POS. So I picked him up after school in early Dec last year, which was unusal that I would pick him up. He thought he sas in some deep doo doo but couldn't figure out why. So he asked "dad, am I in trouble". At that point I had to yank his chain. I told him that we were going to see a child psych., where we actually were going was to the ford place to spen some of that $1025. When we pulled into the ford dealership he is really confused now.
I get the saleman to get me the keys to a (I think they called it a program car) It had 5k on it and waslisted for 24k. but was still on the roll as new. we get in and Jake says "Dad? what are you doing". I said "buying your graduation present. He said "but I don't graduate for 2 1/2 more years" I told him "well it will be nice and broken in for you.
Since the day we took it home all I have heard is non-stop car talk. million questions and most repeats about my first mustang, and whats and ovehead cam motor, etc, etc................... Of course with him having his learners permit there is a never ending list of errands that we have to run , EVERYDAY when I get home from work...........
Do you think he may just like cruising around..........lol
Now I'm not sure I want him to have it. It would kill me if he got hurt in that thing doing stupid stuff I've done when he was with me ie: street racing, doughnuts, burnouts and the list goes on........I am not so sure I'm as smart as I think I am......
