Let's see...car...boat...car...boat...hmmm.

Each is going to take your time and attention and some money. The Mustang will need TLC and the boat is going to need care too.

You can use the car year round but the boat has to be winterized.

The boat allows you to get on the water but the car will get you to the water.

Now, think of this too. How are you going to get the pontoon boat to the water? Or launch it at a marina if stored there? Or pay for a wet slip?

And put the thought of partying on the water every weekend out of your mind...especially with alcohol. Still underage for a few years and you sure as he!! don't want to get busted on the water for DUI.

My answer would be to go for the car now and save for getting the boat later.

ADDED NOTE: jtexas, since he's in TN it would be okay for him to have th party barge since he's not in your state of mine!

MUSTANG!!! I had a 65 when I was 16. Loved it. Even though I am a girl everyone was jealous. Also, unless you are always on the water get a mustang. Later you can get a pontoon for chump change. Even get one cheap and restore it yourself. A mustang is worth mor anyway. Good luck. Keep safe.

I'd go with the boat.
You're young, and JUST learning to drive.
Most young people get in accidents, not always major ones..
..but you don't want to hurt a beautiful mustang, do you?
And like I said, you're young. Get a boat for partying! =D

You can always save up for the Mustang.

parts for the mustang will be more expensive,and harder to find or fabricate, but it'll get better gas mileage.

the barge will be so much more comfortable than that back seat.

I'm a big fan of 65 mustangs, but I'm leaning toward the barge.

Go for the Mustang!

Had one back in the 60's.

You can do the boating later, and it is fun too. Enjoy the car year round. save up for the boat for next summer!

Good Luck - Drive Safe!

1965 Mustang
The boat would only be fun when it is warm outside.
The car would be fun year-round.

You have a very hard choice but I have a 1996 mystic cobra that I bought in 1997 in now sits in the garage since I bought a 2008 22 foot Bentely pontoon boat. If you are considering a boat you would need something to pull it though. It is going to be hard later maybe to find a older car in the shape or for the price you are willing to pay for it. Therefore I have had a ton of fun in my mustang and now i have a ton of fun in my pontoon with family and friends. Get the car the pontoon will come later. Tough choice though very tough.
