16 becomes 46 before you know it, so enjoy every mile! work hard and drive easy (safely and enjoyably) and whatever ride comes your way, make it your own.Darrell-Georgia

Being right on the other side of 21, I am already realizing that being young(er) were some of the best years of my life. I miss not having a job or responsibilities. But, I now have a large amount of expenses that I must keep up with... Corey Smith made a song called "Twenty-One" that pretty accurately asses the situation:

And here's another one for when you graduate from high school and college. Since it's relatively new and wasn't around during high school, I listened to the song going to and from my graduation...another accurate assessment:

I feel your pain brotha, 16 was tough because I always wanted something bigger and better but the wait was well worth it.
I far as not being able to get rid of your truck for sentimental reasons I still have my 90 grand prix that I got when I was 14 because I know that its in GREAT shape with low miles, I put my blood sweat and tears into it and won't be able to get anything worth while out of it. Plus I know then 5,10,20 years down the road I'll wish I still had my first car.
I know the wait will be hard but just think of it this way. If you save up and get something now, 5 years down the road when you're in college it will be old, and you'll be broke all over again. I'm glad that I didn't get my new truck when I was 16 because now that I'm 22 I have twice as many friends and there are twice as many girls to show it off for.
I hate this saying but it's true... Patients is a virtue!
