 So my oldest DD will be 16 in January. She is going to be getting her license. She has had her permit for 6 months, has taken and passed driver's ed and is very responsible and respectful. This child never causes me a moment of worry or concern. As a reward for her good behaviour I bought her a car. My parents and other family members disagree with me on the type of car however I got a good deal and she wants it...what do you think?

This was my though as well...older cars were built like tanks so she isnt as likely to get hurt in an accident.

You do know that with her age and the fact that this is considered a muscle or a race  type car your insurance for her is going to be through the roof!

If she deserves it and she's responsible then what's the issue? Tell everyone else to shove it.

 I saw it and thought for sure she would hate it...as soon as I showed her the pictures her eyes lit up and she said " Yes Mom Yes please?!"
