Well...I'm 19 and still don't have my own car...then again, I still have my permit. Scary Colorado winters... But, I can't really afford one right now anyway, so it's ok. I drive my parents van a lot.

I got mine when I was 16 as an early 17th birthday present, I share in with my twin though. It's a 1991 mitsabishi lancer called "the beast".

Haven't got mine yet. I'm 20 and have had my licence around 1 years now.

My parents offered to buy me a car soon after I got my licence but I refused. I really don't need to drive that much and even the distances are long in a small municipality (almost rural area) where I live I think I can live without a car at the moment. I tend to take a bus or borrow my dad's car if I the distance between my home and a place where I'm going is too long to cycle or walk.

Of course it'd be nice to have a car of my own but that would also mean a high traffic insurance and other fees. Since my regular "long distance" trips are that I meet my therapist twice a week in our neighbor town and have my riding lesson in that same town every other week I think I don't need a car for these trips. I'd be different if I worked there daily or something.

Of course it occasionally disturbes that I e.g. Can't just take a car and drive to meet my friends or relatives who live further away like I'd do if I had a car. But that's how things are now.

I was 16 and my father bought me a '57 DeSoto 4dr, white and blue, push button automatic (ugh). He paid $45.00 for it. Obviously I had no say in it. Every car since, I chose and paid for. I've had some pretty cool cars since then. A few of my favorites were a '67 XKE roadster, a Mitsubishi 3000 GT, a '61 Triumph TR3A, a '69 454 Corvette convertible, and a '28 Pontiac Landau Coupe, just to name a few.

Huh, I must be a weirdo. I got my first car when I was around 13 years old. That's when I started Drivers Ed. It was a 1988 Oldsmobile. I upgraded when I was 17 to a 1992 Oldsmobile, then when I was 18 and headed to college, a 1997 Chevy. They were all larger, 4-door sedans.
When I was 21 I purchased my first vehicle on my own - a 2001 F-150 and then bought a 2008 Subaru Outback when I was 22. Although in between the '97 Chevy and the 2001 F-150 I drove my husband's 2003 Hyundai Tiburon because he was deployed overseas with the military and it was GREAT on gas!

I started driving when I was 9 years old and my parents regularly upgraded me cars. I think I might have to break that habit now that I'm the one paying for it, though. Haha!

I'm only 18, and my dad will be getting me a vehicle soon. I had one of my own, but he blew the transmission out of it. Needless to say that is why he is getting me a

Well I don't actually have a car of my own, but I can use our F150 or the Focus if I ask, so basically when I got my license I guess.
