[QUOTE=V6 stang;2103296]+1 live life while your young because after like 26 or 30 it's all over. That's the rule living by at age 21 lol. It's scary to think of.

I don't know about that. I had a blast in my 20's and 30's. I'm doing things now like traveling to places I never imagined while I was 20-30. I'm 51 now and have a 2014 Premium and having a great time with it. I feel like my life never ended at 30 but instead, started living a greater life.
When I was in my 20's, I would rather have lived on my own in a nice house than try to impress anyone with a new car. I loved the fact that I wasn't living at home with mommy and daddy.
I do have to add that when I was 23(already on my own), I purchased a 1986 GT but came to the realization that it wasn't worth going back to mom and dad's just so I could afford the car. Sad to say I got rid of it but never regretted my decision. The 2014 Premium is SO much better than the 86 GT.

I'm 22, I've previously owned a 2000 v6, and Currently own my 2002 GT. Both bought in cash that i saved through working a minimum wage job, 65 hours a week. I Went for 2 1/2 years through a culinary arts school and graduated earlier this year. And now hold a position as a Garde Manger cook in a fine dining restaurant within a Retirement community, and also work in a sports bar within the same building.

Working a minimum wage job, and being able to afford a mustang took a lot of personal sacrifice. I pretty much just went to work, came home, slept, and went back to work, for months on end to afford it. Never really spending more than a few bucks here and there for a movie or something. Now, hopefully with more money coming in, i'll put down a big down payment on a newer GT, or just save for a low mileage Termi.

I'm 19. Current Mustang I drive was a gift from my family. I'm very thankful. It wasn't just handed to me, but I didn't work countless double-shifts making $10/hr for 2 years straight for it either (although I worked part-time for the past 3 years).

My father reassures me that I've earned it, but I still consider the car my dad's (besides the fact that it is under his name/legally 'his'). But of course I have my own fun in it and have done my own personalizations to it.

Although I'm 29 and chose not to pursue that aspect of my life yet and rather focus on professional development, I definitely think that family life is extremely valuable and by no means not "fun". I'm turning 30 in two weeks and feel like I had a more exciting 20s than 99% of people that included working for 5 different companies/institutions, traveling to over a dozen countries both for business and pleasure, publishing papers and making a big impact in diagnosing cancer and developing medical instruments. Now is the time for another phase of my life, starting a new job and hopefully relatively soon getting married and having kids. Could not be more excited for it.

My dad says he sometimes sees that car in his dreams still.

Cool stories guys and thanks for sharing! This is stuff I like knowing about/hearing/reading, people coming from another country to live that "American Dream." Work hard to follow your dreams. I've come across people that take things for granted. We live in a country that's filled with so many possibilities, for one to ignore all of them? Stories like yours are inspiring.

Its just a joke about getting old. The point is you pretty much have to make a habit of having fun while you're young, or you will be like my dad and never have fun your entire life. Seriously, its not even a money issue for him at all, but im not here to brag about his income for him. I think he literally has just given up hope on having fun or something to some extent. I cant remember the last time he has done something outside of working, eating, sleeping, and getting ready for work. He had me too young and never got to mess around doing unnecessary things simply because he wanted to. Now by my logic, that means that I have to mess around twice as much as a normal person and pick up his slack in that area, right?

I've got fairly lenient professors/classes right now so I'm able to work more. May have to cut it down a little bit next semester.

Same thing here. When I wasn't in school, I was working and paying my own gas and insurance making $15/hr full-time. Only did that for three months, then decided school was a better option. It's nice not having to pay those for the time being, haha.

I also see many posts from our hero service people about buying new stangs. My son is a Coastie and he's usually broke.
[/QUOTE]

I'm a 20+ year military retiree, I'll share with you exactly who and how they get new cars.. it's the single guys/gals that live in the dorms/barracks (no rent, no spouse at home spending their money, 4 free hot meals a day) that get them. They're always better off when going on long deployments to sand land, collecting tax free income, hazardous duty pay, etc, all while being in a place where there really isn't anywhere to spend their money. So they sit there for about a year and come back with $20k+ sitting in their bank accounts blazing holes in their pockets.

I'm 23 and I'm a mechanical engineer. I work for an engineering firm and I'm currently contracted to a large oil and gas refining company. I purchased my '14 GT fully loaded (sans nav) a couple months ago. I put 1/4 down and financed the rest for 5 years with 2% interest. I actually bought the car because I knew if I let a couple grand go into my checking account unspoken for every month then I'd be spending it on worthless things. I'm still working on being responsible with my money, and it would have been so painful to put it ALL into savings (though a significant portion does get put there), so I figured if I was gonna spend it on something I enjoy then it might as well be something with equity. So I bought the Mustang. People look at me like I'm driving "daddy's car" all the time. Little do they know, lol.

I do want to say that while I did pay for the majority of my own school that money would have been considerably tighter while getting my degree if my parents did not help me with a supplemental school fund and they were kind enough to allow me to live with them through the duration. I could have done it solo, as can anyone, but I am so blessed that I had their support.

Similar story as mine. Engineering pays great at a young age, few jobs pay as well as engineering straight out of undergrad. I also feel like some people assume it's daddy's money, if they don't know what I do for a living. But as you pointed out, indirectly it is daddy's money in a way, because our parents helped us achieve what we did in countless ways, even aside from financial support.

Hey you should look into wise investing with your newfound money. Don't put it all into a savings account. The stock market has been good to me for the past 6 years. If you don't know much about investing, there might be night courses offered at your local community college.

Hey you should look into wise investing with your newfound money. Don't put it all into a savings account. The stock market has been good to me for the past 6 years. If you don't know much about investing, there might be night courses offered at your local community college.
This and 401k...

Borla touring, airraid Cai, Mac ceramic shorty headers, frrp x pipe, 2010 gt500 rims, 35 % tint and more to come..

I'm currently studying mechanical engineering, so this makes me feel good for my future, haha. I agree with you.

There will always be work for mechanical engineers. Oil and gas pays six figures straight out of the gate.
