I today's economy and gas prices I wouldn't recommend a V8 to ANYBODY. They're testosterone ridden engines that aren't needed.

Show them you are growing up by being aware of the daily costs of driving a V8 for both gas AND insurance. Look for something that is easier on your parents pocketbook.

they are worried bout you and the car i have to daughters myself and im a big motorhead have 2 ponys and a 69 rebel machine and even tho my daughters watch me go 190 in a 1/4 when it comes time to get them a ride im gonna be just like your parents worried i promise you no matter how good they are at driving a mustang will be the last car i buy them, sorry but a mustang was built as a muscle car not a sport car like some think they are. it is alot of power reguardless of age or experience i watch dragsters hit the wall in pony's at 150 plus mph and they been driving same car for years. its like anything else when ya get confortable it gets ya.

Depends on how good of a driver you are. Are you a responsible driver who will use good sense when driving and not try to lay a patch and drive the car at crazy speeds? That's what your parents are concerned about, at 16 your just getting into the world of driving and they probably don't see you as having the experience to handle a car with a fair bit of power. Even though you may be a very good driver and not abuse the cars power they being parents are going to be overly protective. I would look around for something else if you need your parents consent cause they don't sound like they will give it. Then when your old enough to buy a car without them get your dream car.

Well your insurance company isn't going to care how good of a driver you are.
Anyone at your age is going to pay a lot for insurance for a V8.
Look for a 4 or 6 cylinder car.

It is a lot of power for someone who is unexperienced. Also, it's RWD meaning it won't do well in poor weather. If a Mustang is really what you have your heart set on, look for a used one with a V-6. It's a little less power, so it would be easier to learn on.
