No way unless they pay for it. My first car was an old trooper with a blown head gasket. My dad said. If you can fix it, its yours. So I wrenched it with my friend and a manual from checkers and got it running. 8 years later I was able to afford a subaru. If I would've asked for one in high school I think my dad would have taken me to rehab for drug use.
If a kid is going to kill himself in a WRX he can do it in a geo. Its more about the financial aspect for me. MTV has programmed kids into thinking they get a sports car at 16. Not true.
