RE: Parents buying cars for son / daughter
I'm 16. I've known since before I knew anything about cars, in my heart, after riding in one that belonged to a relative, that my first car had to be a Benz. i waited, i was patient, I did my shopping, I convinced my dad it would last... and I am now the proud part-owner of a 1986 300SDL! My dad paid for it upfront, used of course, just a few weeks ago. I still have to pay him back, every penny... he's teaching me to be accountable for it. But he wanted me to use my savings (not enough to buy the car) to learn what it cost to RUN the car. He's buying my insurance, but I have to pay him back for the purchase later and I have to buy my own gas, oil, etc! I think it's a fair deal.
