I ride the bus, then ill buy my own car, pay for gas, insurance, tickets, etc... That is torrey pines, kids from torrey pines are fags. I got in a fight with a kid from torrey pines at a football game last year. I get so pissed when i see kids my age driving bimmers and benzes. The most expensive (stock) car a kid has at my school is either a mazda6 or a GTI.

Damn, if I went to that high school, I would purposely buy a 1985 Ford POS and park that thing right next to all those BMWs and Caddies. Scare the shit out of those kids. Anyways I drove a 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee 5.2L V8 in High school. I still drive it today. She just hit 100,000 2 weeks ago and still has the juice to smoke a civic off the line. Love her and holding on to her while I buy a muscle car soon. I'll have to find a pic.

Technically I didn't go to HS, I was homeschooled, and technically I didn't have my license till June of this year (apparently that's what my dad thought would be the safest thing for me.. not a new BMW ..lol) but I was driving my mom's '03 Kia Sorento which is now mine for graduating with a high GPA!!

yeah..adding to what I said...at least some of the kids are not just getting these high-enders for nothing - theyre working and keeping their grades up for it, and I respect that. i wish my parents were like that...i feel kinda bad just getting a car for nothing from my dad...

Im in the process of high school and the cars that were originally bought for me is 1996 Saturn SC1, and a 1990 Chevrolet Beretta GTZ. The Saturn is long since gone and the Beretta, well, thats in my driveway!

And SJ, I don't think you got the car for nothing. From being on here for some 1500 posts, All I've been able to tell from you is that you're a smart kid, and mainly stick close ore on the honor role. No, if my calculations are correct, *pushes glasses up by the middle* then the square root of 4 is 3, and you stick on the honor role most of the time.

I'll be arriving at the High School in a week, but I know one kid who got a brand new Plymouth Prowler a year or two ago for his 16th birthday. Believe me, it's not uncommon where I live. (Northern suburbs of Chicago.) If you walk down the street in the ritzy town next to mine, you'll see maybe 3 BMW M3's driven by someone under 18. Money doesn't seem to be a problem to those people. As for me, it'll probably be my brother's '95 Accord or something similar. Although I wouldn't mind a used Eldorado.

Where are all the older folks in this thread? 1998 this and that....

Ok, here comes the sweet list of HS cars that I drove.

Learned how to drive in my parent's 1974 Ford Pinto Wagon complete with wood grain siding. Periodically I could drive their "new" 1980 Ford Fairmont station wagon (also with the wood grain - actually took this car on spring break to Florida- stylin') and finally with their late '70s Buick Skylark.

Then I bought my own cars

1972 Olds Delta 88 Royal - excellent car for parking
1975 Ford Granada
1972 VW Baja Superbeetle

after that I was out of HS and on to college where the list continues.
