At what age did you get your first car?

Did you buy it yourself, or did your parents get you one? I bought mine when I was 20--a used 1982 Toyota Corolla for which I paid $2k. I saved $1000 myself, and my grandma matched me in a loan. I loved that car.

  • I was 20 & my ex mother in law bought it for me out of the blue. I just had a baby & she wanted to help out. That was her contribution. Very sweet of her....

  • 19 and a family member sold my 1994 van to me for 300 bucks. I didn't have kids so a van was pointless. But it was mine and my dogs loved to ride in it.
