Buy an older but clean Ford Ranger and drive it through high school. Tell your folks to put the car money and insurance toward your college tuition.
6 or 8 years down the road, buy an S550 and mod the living **** out of it.
Yup, I drove a old F150 in high school so I had college money. Now I'm in my mid 20's with two new cars and a house. Had a lot of fun in that old truck and the girls loved it!
My wife and I have clean driving records - we pay $160 a month on two new cars and my daily driver beater.
