I've driven my dad's Corvette (2003) 3 times to practice driving stick only after i repeatedly asked him multiple times until he gave in, he had to sit in the passenger seat though. They just don't want me to own anything that might be somewhat fast.

Hey man. If this helps I've got some advise that might help here. I know you've probably talked to your parents, and tried to convince them, but try this.

One night prepare them dinner or take them out and let them know before hand that there is an issue you want to discuss like adults.

Once there sit them down and respectively tell them that you are about to be an adult and should be given the right to make your own decisions. And that you promise to be safe and intelligent with how you drive, yet be slightly firm that they need to let you do this.

That would be my advise. Acting professional an responsible around your parents makes it hard for them to say no. If not, well hell. You tried.

There's my 2 cents. Hope this helps.

Re: I guess it is official

I think i'm going to try to wait 6 months until I turn 18, then try and try to use that, if that doesn't work then at that point its only a few months until i go to college so then i can get one then because i will be out of the house... I should probably wait until i find out where i'm going to college first anyway, i don't want to get one then have to sell it 6 months later (we have no room to store cars).

Soccer just wait until you're out on your own. Insurance for your area might be high if you're under 25 that might be the reason. $100 a month doesn't sound like much to you but think about this if you're insurance is $100 they might already be paying $300 or $200 a month already. So $1200 a year for you on top of maybe the $2000 a year they might already be paying. You can just sit down and talk it out with them or like I stated at the beginning and just wait.

Just a thought, maybe It's because they love you and could not stand the thought of you getting hurt in a fast car.

I think that everybody could benefit from taking a course like that. Knowledge on what to expect in extreme situations would result in fewer deaths.

My dad said he might be willing to sign me up for something like that, so that way i can learn to control a higher performance car... Nothing got implied about them letting me get the Mustang though, but it's worth a shot. And it would be nice to drive something like a Ferrari or Lambo or Z06.

my dad works for Hyundai and they let me take a 3.8 genesis coupe out to this track a few hours away and pretty much let me go balls out.. the good thing was this was a car that had been almost destroyed a few months before and the owner brought it back and got a new one lol so they keep it around to go have fun in and ish lol. I thought myself a lot in that car! ha

My father was the same when I was 17, but he eventually gave in and allowed me to get a 6er, after driving that for a few years he had no problems with me getting a GT, actually it's funny cuz he's hitting that mid life crisis stage, and whenever we drive in the stang and I get on it, all he says is ohhh I'm gonna get a 5.0 and blow your doors off. My girlfriend lives with me and my father and she's currently looking for an 07 6er, gonna be a real nice lookin driveway with a 02' GT, 07' 6er, and a 13' 5.0 .

Yes but it is RWD, younger people tend to not care about rain or snow and think they are invincible. I know I did haha rude awakening when that *** slides out and inexperienced drivers panic and BOOM!

Lmao I did that in my f150. I didn't panic tho I just sat there in tense in the seat like son of a bch I lost control lol.. No point in freaking out, it's not in your control at that point. Nothing you can do. Ran into a old fence just a few scratches from thorns and stuff

I went through different types of turns that i might encounter. I didn't just go straight then jerk to the side. Almost every road where i live is straight lines also, cause its suburbs/city.

Most parents that won't allow a child to get a performance car for safety reasons have never been a car enthusiast... or had a bad experience growing up... instead of saying no they need to take the time and learn about what it means to be a car person... what I've seen in my life time with this same situation caused street racing to die....

I'll try an keep this short (op I will be more than happy to speak to your parents in regards to your problem... I'm a parent and I plan on building both my girls mustang's from the ground up)

OK parents say no to v8
allows child to get v6
kid then drives v6 like it's a race car
Kid gets into trouble w the law and or wrecks....

Pre 2000 street racing depending on location was safe (as safe as racing can be given the imperfections of road ways ) I do not mean random street light races... I'm referring to planned races where many cars meet at a discreet location

After fast n the furious came out racing became a fad... kids started to take their mom's four door imports out to these races w no prior knowledge on how or what to do in a race and or Harry situation... causing mad destruction of property, lives, cars... by 2003 street racing was taken from a minor traffic violation to a felony... and when that did not solve the problem cities nation wide to drastic measures... street racing of the "good ol days" are now extinct... these dumb kids/parents ruined a great past time... my wife and I found each other through racing and I miss it so much.... here is how all this and your current situation could be prevented...

Parents get involved w child and build/work on a desired car w child... learn how to respect cars for the amazing machines they are... if you put your blood sweat and tears into something 9x out of 10 you will not disrespect it.... both parties need to learn how to respect hp and tq... if not that's how accidents happen...

Make motorsports a family function and everyone wins...

Ending note to op if all else fails get a wrx... ungodly reliable, safe, sexy, ect... it has soul and can beat a ton of cars out there and if you can't beat it just tell them next race you get to choose location lol (find a trail big enough for a car in the woods and see who comes out unscaved lol)

Hey just thought I'd throw my .02 on the teenager vs parents on sports cars. Even tho I'm only 21 I do understand the parents point of view. What does every 16-18 year old highschool kid want? Fast cars and hot women. And how did we get those hot women? With our fast cars. Yes, I have been in sports cars all my life, but when I was in school, my dad said only way that was happening is if I pay for everything my self. And if he heard about me crashing while being stupid, he would take my license away. So I do understand both sides views.

---------- Post added at 06:46 PM ---------- Previous post was at 06:43 PM ----------

And yes, silver, I completely agree with you on street racing as does my dad, he was a freshman in hs when I was born and that's what he grew up doing, so we both agree with you on street racing and the fast n furious destroying it

You can be a dumb *** and get yourself killed JUST as easy in a v6 as a v8. Some kids with v6's think they have something to prove make up for not having a v8 and drive like an idiot.

I respect the power of my GT. it's not crazy but it still reminds me from time to time that it will kick my *** if I'm not careful

My dad was very reluctant to me getting a v8 because he knows what he did as a kid with 78 Mach 1 and a 69 z28. I can never really get it out of him, but I have heard him talk to old friends about racing trains and how they don't know how they made it.
I'll admit I've raced on public roads and even for money, but those couple of times it has been somewhere that I know that no one else will be and that I know the road well. I know it isn't smart, but he'll I'm young stupid and what is the point of having a fast car and not using it every once in awhile.
My friends say that I'm crazy because I'll take turns to the limit, but what they don't know is that before I do that I take the turn many times before and gradually increase the speed a couple mph each time until I reach the limit. It's great for impressing on a first date. I didn't do that one time and dam near killed myself. It taught a good lesson though.

After fast n the furious came out racing became a fad... kids started to take their mom's four door imports out to these races w no prior knowledge on how or what to do in a race and or Harry situation... causing mad destruction of property, lives, cars... by 2003 street racing was taken from a minor traffic violation to a felony... and when that did not solve the problem cities nation wide to drastic measures... street racing of the "good ol days" are now extinct... these dumb kids/parents ruined a great past time... my wife and I found each other through racing and I miss it so much.... here is how all this and your current situation could be prevented...

Parents get involved w child and build/work on a desired car w child... learn how to respect cars for the amazing machines they are... if you put your blood sweat and tears into something 9x out of 10 you will not disrespect it.... both parties need to learn how to respect hp and tq... if not that's how accidents happen...

Make motorsports a family function and everyone wins...

Ending note to op if all else fails get a wrx... ungodly reliable, safe, sexy, ect... it has soul and can beat a ton of cars out there and if you can't beat it just tell them next race you get to choose location lol (find a trail big enough for a car in the woods and see who comes out unscaved lol)
First and foremost, most parents know their kids better than anyone else!.. When my kids are older and go to get their first car, I will only let them get a "performance car" if they are truly ready for it!.. It has nothing to do with me being a car enthusiast or not!.. It completely depends on if they are mature enough to handle it or not!.. It doesn't matter if you "build the car" with your kids and try to teach them to respect it!.. If your kid don't have the maturity to handle a 1.8L FourBanger then they sure as hell don't have the maturity to handle a sportscar!.. It's just that simple!..

A teenager will love the sound it makes when you floor it a lot! I know I do.

I don't think it matters what car theyre in, every car is fast enough to kill someone. The day you loose respect for your car, no matter if it is an old Camry or a new Shelby you will die.

So very true, when my oldest daughter was 8 she was to big to sit on my lap and steer any more. I told her I guess It's time to learn to use the brakes and gas then. She drove me 12mi on her 8th birthday. My oldest son on other hand, never got to drive the lawn mower til he was 12+.
