I'm still in highschool, drivin a 92 isuzu rodeo with about 121,000 miles on it.
My mom bought it for 1200 dollars, and she said she'll let me drive it until I buy and fix up my own car.
Said car is probably going to be a friend of a friend's 91 nissan 240sx, powered by an rb20det skyline engine.
It'll probably be in my back yard for a long time, before it sees more road time. Lots of problems to it that needs parts that I have to order from freaking japan. =/ (you try finding a store in florida that sells parts for a decade old skyline)

Well yeah, there's my current situation.

Also I hate the kids at my schol that roll up in hummer h2's (no joke) and brand new scion tC's, and beetles, and lexus', and etc. >_x

I am still in high school, and drive a '93 honda civic...my parents split the cost with me, cost us 1500. Bought it from a friend down the road. I cant say my car is one of the bad cars at the school, but there are some nice ones, like a highly modified '96 eclipse...not really any BMW's, Mercadee's or cars of that nature, mostly sports cars, or modified cars...i am in the process of putting the mods on my civic as well.

damn rich-ass, spoiled kids.

Whe I was in High School, I used to drive my dad's 2000 Mazda Protege or my Mom's 1999 Nissan Altima. But now that I graduated I got my brother's 1998 Ford Escort ZX2 (manual ) for free , it sucks but it's free.

My High School really isn't like the one illustrated in that article..
A few kids drive expensive cars like that, but most drive "budget" cars. And I live in a wealthy area.
My only assumption would be that the wealthy kids are all private schooled..

As for my cars..
First, I bought myself an 86 Merkur..
I can't keep up with the repair costs though, so I put it on the side of my garage, and my parents helped me take out a loan for a 99 miata.

I dont have a car yet, but my dad drove a '69 Mustang. He bought it for like half the price though from his friends dads shop. He now drives a Lexus SC430.

He says that if I keep up with my 4.0 GPA in all my honors classes, I get a new BMW/Mercedes/Acura thats under 40k. Or, I can get a used Supra or Corvette. Although hes still not sure yet. He thinks I would be a little dangerous with a vette.

I came from an area where a few kids drove new BMWs, Infinitis, and the like. I drove and still drive a 1985 Volvo 240 DL wagon.

I'm kinda driving a 1993 Eagle Talon ES. Bought it for 150, fixed her up, still needs a paint job. Shes my baby. I crashed it on christmas and screwed it up. snaped my rear axle (axel w/e). I was racing my friends lumina (haha) and under-estimated a very wide corner, got on some gravel, slid sidways for about 300 feet, slammed into a curb at 100+ no body damage except for the back left rim, maybe some body tweaking my speaker box was knocked out of place. But i fixed it. Still can't drive it, but its fixed! lmao




btw.....I'm back!

$400 82 dodge challenger (not Charger... it was the weird little rwd import that kinda looked like a 79 mustang)
i got to use my dad's 85 firebird for dates n stuff (i later bought it)

when she turned 16, a girl in my class got a new, bright red, quad 4 olds cutlass calais w/ the ground effects & stuff, and we all thought she was so lucky...
