Working 45 hrs/week in the summer, borrowing some cash from the parents, and falling into a deal at the right place at the right time.

Im not gonna front. My uncle gave me my car.

Things you should take note:
He lives in Atlanta I had to get it here
It was not in running condition
My mom constantly told me not to get it
It looked like this


As everyone else said work. I worked and saved. Dishwashing paid for most of my mods thus far. Thats straight BITCH work. But if your willing to do it good things happen.

Well, I'm 23 I've been working since I was 13 delivering papers, and some other odd jobs. My first real job was when I was 16 at a Shell gas station, pretty much all the money I made at the went toward college and a few pretty expensive bicycles. I then got sponsored and started getting paid to do shows and such, which had me saving up for a car. I'm not going to lie though, my parents did front me a bunch for my car, mostly because I got a deal that I couldn't pass up and at the time I didn't have all the cash for it. Basically now I work construction (not for long though), which pays for my car debt to my parents, and the bike shows take car of my modding bug for my car, and my bikes.

As far as insurance I pay a hair under $5000 a year for a 97 328is, a 92 525i, and a 90 Isuzu Pickiup. Yes, I pay my parents insurance, the money just gets taken off what I owe them.

It doesn't seem like I but i've had my car for only 10.5 months and I've already blown a few grand on it in just mods/maintenence. Ah well, it's beyond worth it.

Basically I'm at the point now where I gotta start saving up for a house though, and no, my car nor my bikes will be sold/parted out to afford the downpayment.

i am 19 and i started out with a 1980 244 volvo that was a year ago then i started saving i then bought my 1984 318i for 2800 and it was good for a couple months i then replaced water pump, alternator, fuel pump, radiator, rad hoses, i just rebuilt my engine that was 3,000 also i just replaced my full exhaust with after market muffler and now i am saving for my amp to do my back seat to sub conversion, my new seats in which i am hoping will look pretty sweet, new carpeting, new dash due to mine is cracked, and my body kit from fil and a new paint job which is going to cost me 2500. you know how i am going to pay for this by working my ass off at a call center. All my money goes into my car.

i work, but only work on weekends, i could have made a lot more money by getting a different job but i only started working last year and i was too serious with soccer, it took up at least 3 days of the week, plus school and the 2 days i worked, so i couldnt save much up, now that i dont play soccer anymore i can work and save up, but my parents wont let me, they insist i go to europe for a month. So all these stupid factors stop me from making money, also having a life, i spend too much money just on "living" clubs arent cheap, gas for when i drive, my cell phone, etc, things add up. I can sacrifice things so i can save up and buy a car i want but i dont need those kind of expenses at my age (18).

wish it was that easy, but like most people on this board my age(not all, i know some bought it and pay for everything, but some totally didnt) the car isnt mine, its my parents..so i dont really have a say on what goes and what doesnt, and lately my mom kills it to oakville everyday, the door panel is falling off from the inside, but i dont care anymore, she drives it, im not adding no$ to it..i want to save up for a nice jap car and just make it mine, treat her well.
