  • I got my first brand new car the day I turned 16 yrs old. It was in my moms name though. I got my second new car in my name when I was 22 yrs old. I financed it through Ford Motor way back when.

  • I bought an engine for an old beater pickup truck my dad had when I was 17. I bought my first real car at 18, it was a Jeep Cherokee pickup truck and I LOVED it. Some moron crashed into me just two weeks after I bought it, so I had to go out and buy different truck. I didn't like it as well, but it was MINE!

  • My truck was bought by my Husband before We were even Married. I have never purchased a vehicle with money I made. I do co-own both my and my Husband's trucks, though..but I always have, even before my name went on the titles, since everything is Ours.

  • 19 years old. I bought it used. It was mine though. My parents bought my first car at 16 and I drove that for 3 years. At 26 years old, I officially bought my first new car with my husband.

  • My first car was my sweet sixteen birthday present. I kept it until I was 19 or 20. I sold it and bought a newer camaro. I saved from the time I started working until I bought my car. I searched six months for it. I only had to finance half of the purchase price. I had that car two years before somebody stole it from me UGH.
