    Well she picked it up today, and oh no it's a Ford! :gasp: 2008 Focus less than 8,000 miles and every option but the sunroof! All in all a very nice vehicle, and a lot of car for the money,plus 35 mpg's. Don't judge her too harshly for not buying G.M., she's actually the smartest one out of the bunch so far!

    That's actually a really nice lloking car, I think that would be an awesome first car for any kid. My first car was a 92 Ford Festiva, which was like the Ford version of a Chevette. I hated that car but my dad wouldn't let me get a truck, because he was afraid I would spend all of my money on the truck. Boy how wrong was he? :lol:

    Yeah, she's very lucky, but I give her credit. She's 18 years old and enrolled in nursing school and working full time at a nursing home, until she can get into a local hospital and work at becoming an LPN and then hopefully RN, the only thing she asked of me was to co-sign her loan, so I'm pretty proud of her!:glasses:
    The other positive is now I can have my old Grand Prix back to use as a beater and save wear and tear on my truck!

    I heard with those new focuses parents can program speed limiters into em and all kinds of crazy stuff. I was doing some work at this guy's house and his teenage daughter got in her car and drove away. About a minute later he called her up and was like "WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING DRIVING 45 ON THIS ROAD" He had some kind of GPS tracking doodad where he could tell how fast she was going and where she was.
    I would've been grounded every day if my parents had that kind of technology.

    I look at it this way, all kids beat the snot out of their first car. So let her beat the ford to death and when she is responsible enough to own a chevy she will treat it with the respect it deserves.:lol:

    Thats a nice first car. Its very appropriate for a young driver, I like the color too!! I know she'll be responsible in it Adam....oh...what? Its too late? :lol:I once took the tags off of my Dads new 1981 Chevy Malibu and put them on my 1966 Falcon (my first car) and drove around a while. Luckily I got home before they did and Dad never found out....hmm...or did he?
