Hey Guys, I need you opinions on what to do. I'm 15 and unsure which path to go car wise. Do I get like a HQ one tonne and do it up for a first car, do I just save and get a modern car or something else (if other please post what).
Thanks, Tristan.

Get yourself a VT-VY Commodore and smash that to pop your cherry. Save your $$$ and go old school once you are off your P's and have a job to pour $$$ into it (trust me - they do cost money!)

First car? Get something safe. That definitely doesn't include a one-tonner. Reaper's advice is sound - all cars cost bux, and you will bend and break it as you learn. It will be cheaper and probably safer than just about any other option.

Thanks for replies guys I will probably end up getting the modern car and putting my spare money into a vintage car I've had my eye on for a while.

I agree with the reapenator, Get a modern car...

And also, This sounds like somthing an old codger would say, But if you have the choice between a car with airbags, ABS etc... Or one with a nice stereo, lowered and big wheels, go the safe one.. Airbags and ABS can't be added onto a car after it leaves the factory, but wheels, new springs and a stereo can...
