How old were you when you got your first car?

I'm only 15... don't have one yet and probably won't have enough money for one for a few years still, but I was just wondering how old you all were when you got your first car/truck?

30 something. My Da bought me a small, used, car. I didn't have a driving license, and couldn't afford the tax and insurance - so it sat in the drive until he paid the nearly 1,000 for the insurance and I paid for 3 months road tax.

I passed my driving test 8 years ago today!!!

First car I bought and paid for myself, I was 19 and it was a 77 Triumph Spitfire. It was a really cool car.
I shared an old school bus yellow Ford F150 with my sisters when I was in high school. It was my parents truck though.

I was 17. My dad gave me his old truck. My dad still has it to loan out or to use if mine, or his car is in the shop. I love that truck. It was the reason I got to start riding horses. Since I could drive myself to the barn my mom bought me a riding lesson every week.

Help me horse forum! You're my only hope!

I bought myself my first car when I was 17. It was pretty cheap and all but it got me around.

I got my first car when I was 17 I think? Up until then I had to use my parents cars.
It was a 90 something neon. most of the interior was missing and it died in about two weeks.
The first car I bought myself was a Toyota camery with no muffler and about 350,000 miles on it. It's a beast and I got it for $500 :)
