    I got my first car!

    My parents bought me my first car and brought it home today! (I'm 16)
    It's a '97 Buick Century Custom with 36000 miles! It's a jasper green color and the paint is flawless. No scratches, dents, etc. The interior is also in extremely good condition.

    @papibe Thanks!

    @bucky Ball Yeah then there's that. But it gets 26+ mpg city, so it won't be too painful. Plus, i have been cutting grass for the past 3 years so i have money from that.

    Congrats, my first car was a 89 Nissan Sentra, with 90,000 miles and more rust then paint. Lasted me longer then I want to admit.

    Also please don't try to mod a Buick. LOL.
    Last night I lay in bed looking up at the stars in the sky and I thought to myself, where the heck is the ceiling.

    Re: I got my first car!

    Oh damn, 16 years. I'm 21, I got my drivers license when I was 19 (you can start learning to drive when you're 18 in Belgium). But I still don't have my own car.

    It's a tradition that you only buy a car when you begin to work. And since I'm still studying, I have to do everything with train, bus and bicycle.

    I always wondered those differences in age. You know Belgium is a beer country, we have more than 100 breweries (for such a small country, 300 times smaller than the USA) and a whole bunch of types of beer. So in Belgium, it's normal that you taste your first beer when you're between 10 and 12. And it's completely normal to order a beer in a pub when you're 16.

    My current favourite beers are Omer and hommelbier. But at home, we always have Duvel, Hapkin, Westmalle, Leffe, Brigand and Jupiler in our basement.

    Anyway, good luck with your car.

    It is absolutely insane that a car made in 97 has only 36000 miles on it.. congrats and enjoy
