Ultimate Sleeper?

If your parents have money to buy you a near new mustang at 16, I almost guarantee you have a retirement fund started as well.

I put some gas in it, slept for two hours, set up the event under the cover of pre-dawn, went down the interstate for some Waffle House, shotgunned the tire pressures (never used the BFG Rival S on this car before), then drove.

I'll bet that you wish that you still had the ol' VW.

I 'do' miss that car

Gas was 29 cents a gallon. If a 'gas war' was going on, a gallon could be bought for 21 cents a gallon

I would never give a 16 year old a Mustang, Camaro, or hell even a V6 Accord. Older Silverado, Tahoe, etc. that's your best bet.

I would just save the money and enjoy it as it is. Nothing worse than having to call your parents to come tow you home from a Target parking lot because something you tried to do on a budget went wrong -_-
Yeah this has happened a few times........... Luckily i've never been stranded, but have to limp the car home lol

I'm 16. I figure, the New Edge's 3.8 isn't exactly the most powerful engine out there, so no harm really. I only wanted a Mustang in the first place because of the fact that I could get it in a manual and it looked cool.

I've, of course, grown to love Mustangs and their history.

I hear ya. I just personally would not allow my 16 year old to have a 300 hp car. A V6 Mustang is no slouch and can get away from you quick, especially in wet weather. I prefer a 7000 # tank of a truck or something safer.

Or you could teach your kid how to drive it, my dad drove a 99 328i with about 500 whp so I've been learning since I was 14. I got my 3.7 when i was 17 and haven't crashed and I never will because I won't allow the car to get away from me. Honestly it's a maturity thing, while I did some pretty immature in my teenage years, I feel that I'm a slightly better driver than your average teenager. I mean most kids these days can't even drive a stick but my point is that it doesn't matter what you get your kid even a truck can get away from him. It's best just to inform him and teach him the best you can.

All depends on the child. My daughter is 7 and she already shows an interest in what I'm doing when I'm pulling motors apart or when the car is up on ramps or even basic stuff. If she gets really into this sort of stuff, I'll buy a project car for her when she's 14 or 15 and build it with her so when she turns 17 she'll have something cool that she built. Something like a 4.0 S197 or a New Edge 3.8 would be perfect IMO.

Never say you won't let a car get away from you. Every now and then unpredictable things happen.

The best thing my dad ever did was teach me to race. I went to defensive driving classes. I went on to get my NHRA license (very easy). I also have an SCCA Competition License.

I can tell you that the track is fairly predictable. You never know what is on the street. There are pot holes, idiots, uneven surfaces, contamination, animals, etc (I did have a deer run across the drag strip in front of me one night - a true pucker moment on a drag bike).

Know your car. Understand the car. Most of all, respect the car. The car doesn't care if it kills you.

You are correct, every child is different. My oldest daughter scares me because she is overly cautious. She has her learner's permit, and needs more practice.

My youngest is 13 and drives extremely well. Of course this is done on private property with no traffic. She connects with the car though.

But really, who gives their kid a mustang for a first vehicle? Insurance is outrageous, increased risk of accident, etc.

I know I guess the point I was trying to make is that just because a driver is young doesn't mean the cat will get away from them. Hell the car can get away from experienced 20 year veterans.

Parents who can afford it. Can't say I'd do much different than them if I was loaded.

This ^^^^

Before i got any actual track experience i thought i could drive and looking back i was terrible. I did let the car get away from me a few times. Luckily never hit anything. But seriously, go autocross the car or do a track day. You will be amazed how much you learn.

I got my mustang when I was 17 and it was 100 for full coverage, I don't know if that's considered expensive insurance or not.

Depends on your deductible too. If you have a low deductible that is good, because my 2001 miata that i got for $4000 has full coverage, a $250 deductible and is $107 a month.

A friend of mine who works for Aston Martin, made the mistake of checking to see what insurance on a 1992 Miata would be over there.

For a 24 year old car that she could buy for 1000 pounds, it would cost her 2000 pounds per month to insure. No crashes or any sort of tickets, it was that high because she is under 26 years old.

See, i understand there's obviously an algorithm they use for that sort of thing, but have some common sense haha... you could replace the car twice over each month just paying for the insurance ... whose sole purpose is to fix and or replace the car? Makes no sense.

Medical and Liability is a factor as well.
