    I had a job and saved my money for a year and a half... then my aunt/uncle matched me dollar for dollar and basically split the cost of my first car.
    Best deal ever!!!

    Actually I've realised it was after I turned 17, because I'd just graduated and I needed it to get to work

    I paid for 1/3 of it. The deal was, that my mom and grandparents would match every dollar I saved. I got a 1987 Suzuki Samurai. It was a piece of junk... six moths later, I sold it and got myself a 1980 Ford F-150 which I loved to death.

    Nice. That looks like a late model Mexican bug (fenders and painted bumpers give it away).

    I've got two 68s back home.

    My grandfather bought me a used car when I was 16 or 17. Of course, he owned 2 cars, a jeep, a boat, and frequently bought cars for my cousin and mother, so that kind of explains it...

    I didn't get my license until after I was 17, so my parents didn't buy me a car when I was 16. But they did buy my car when I was 18. The family car I had been driving broke down and I needed a car to get to college. They know this already, but I'm eternally grateful to my parents for buying me my car :D

    My parents didn't have that kind of money, nor did they think it was beneficial to just hand me things like that. My parents did pay for my post secondary education though and for that I am very grateful. I think that is more valuable than a car.

    Hah! I was lucky if they let me borrow their car. The first car I ever owned I bought myself, and I was in my 20s. I don't come from a wealthy family. Unlike my friends who got cars for graduation from high school, I got luggage.

    Why would they? In England you have to be 17 before you can legally drive a car. We didn't buy cars for our boys either because we were worried that they might be encouraged to drive stupidly and get involved in a nasty accident. We did however pay for them to have driving tuition from reputable driving schools rather than allow them to be taught by thier friends. We wanted to be sure they were taught to drive as safely as possible.

    True but then again the only reason I don't have a car is because I haven't gotten my license yet.

    No, I was allowed to use their car when they didn't need it. I bought my own car when I got my first job and paid for it myself.
