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.
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.
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
Well...I'm 19 and still don't have my own car...then again, I still have my permit. :lol: Scary Colorado winters... But, I can't really afford one right now anyway, so it's ok. I drive my parents van a lot.
Haven't got mine yet. I'm 20 and have had my licence around 1½ 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!
