New power

Does it not bother anyone else for a kid to go buy a new car with over 300 hp and you have people building a car to get hp that takes them many years to do?would it hurt your pride to pull up next to some young punk in your muscle car and get smokes?just doesn't seem fair

You choose your way they choose theirs. It does suck; but if you were 16 and your mommy and daddy bought you a "fast" car you'd take it. I just hope that the kid in question isn't a huge d-bag.

Also, maybe the kid could afford it? I bought a 2004 where my friend has a 1996. Stock for stock it's faster (obvously) but he is building his. Just remember that you put, and probably still putting, a LOT of blood, sweat, and tears into making your car what you want it to be.

I wouldnt really call him a friend but kid I use to hang out with occasionally with other friends got a brand new 2010 gt from his dad whos a doctor and he never sees him just gets money from him. He trashed it from drinking and driving and got into drugs and all sorts of junk. It was a beauty of a stang and one night he left the windows down and it rained. Just countless things of bein spoiled and non appreciative.

Thought i'd chime in... I'm 18 and bought a 2001 Bullitt 3 days after my birthday in february. 270hp, 315lb of torque. I bought the car and all of the mods ($2600 in mods so far) with my own money.

To me it's an accomplishment to be able to work on cars and change brakes or change oil not to mention how much money you save doing it yourself

My dad not so much. He'll help me a little and show me stuff but My grandpa though has always taught me stuff and showed me. Like fishing, hunting and now cars. He just bought a 89 5.0. And now we sit there and talk about mustangs for hours. Talk about what we wanna do with our cars and just talk about everything.

My dad has helped me with most of the things I've done but it's not the same as restoring an entire car.

I would love that. My dad had a 67 a code 390 fb blue mustang 4 speed and traded it for a 69 428 cj Mach 1. He died when I was 13 so ill never have the experience of building a car or memories with cars with him. I'll just have to build my own cars and memories now :/

I'm building/ built 3 cars within the last 2 year's with my pops and he built a shop in his back yard so we no longer had to rent a space to build cars. To count we've built his 92 gt, 73 mach1, my 88 saleen clone droptop, his 67 fairlane gt(in progress),my 88 gt hatch ( in progress)and my old drag car together, would not trade that time for anything, ever !!!!!

hah, I wish it was still like that. I learned nothing from my father but how not to be a terrible person and abandon your kids, so I take every oppurtunity I have to try and pass on some of the things I've learned to my boys. I have two sons, one five years old and one 10 months old, the oldest helps me work on the mustang whenever I'm out working on it. The look on his face when I first let him handle the jack to lift and lower the mustang was priceless!

I am 21 as well and bought my 06GT when I was 20 only 8 months ago, with my own money of course, having a steady job while in college makes it possible. Most kids that live around me have their parents go buy them something new and run around like the d-bags they are. Does it bother me? no, because ever since I can remember I have been working in the machine shop we own, learning to weld now having it mastered (arc, mig, tig), rebuild motors for my karts and late models when we raced, and being able to complete just about any task someone throws at me in the shop. To me that means more than just buying a car that has all that HP and some punk kid driving it believing he's on top of the world.

Working on something and improving on it over time should mean more to anyone than just buying something already finished to an extent of course. But silverskoundrel has nailed it, times have changed, no one values the small things I learned to value when growing up.

Yea everyone is caught up in that routine thing.i am same way

---------- Post added at 09:10 AM ---------- Previous post was at 09:08 AM ----------

My complaint is you spend all the time sweat and bruises to build it and majority of the kids that drive stangs around here are spoiled little boys with mummy's money.just aggravating

I'm 16 and things with my dad are just kinda weird. Him and my grandpa bought me my car but I have to pay for gas and stuff. I just hope all you guys in here take time to do stuff with your kids. Cause that's what I missed and it sucks. Hell I taught myself how to shave cause my dad wasn't around lol. It might not seem like a lot but it is to your kids. I'm not trying to preach haha. I'm just saying

My first car was a 94 v6. the previous owner had blown the engine. my dad bought the car for 800 bucks and we drove to a garage to build a new engine from the block up every day after school for a few months until it was done. best feeling ever dad taught me to build my own engine and it was a great feeling the first time we started the engine. Then i worked my butt off for aftermarket parts for it. Even though it was a horribly slow car performance-wise, everyone at school loved it because i put time and work into it.

Like myself. My dad isn't interested in cars it seems. My uncle on the other hand owns his own body shop, manages another one, has loads of experience and IS interested in cars. He is the reason I will not buy a new car. Lol. I can keep my foxes in mint shape as long as he's around and I spend enough time learning what he knows. I love working on the foxes more than anything.
