  • 10 thousand a 06 chevy malbu my parent paid for it 16 years old
  • It cost £5 and was a 1959 Austin A30, I bought it myself at the age of 16. Together with my father we stripped the blown engine, had it re-bored and fitted new pistons etc. I learned to drive it in the driveway and passed my test a few weeks after I was 17. I sold it a few months later for £50 a bargain I think!
  • A 1964 Oldsmobile JetStar. My Grandfather, (the greatest man I have ever known), loaned me $350 to buy it. I paid back $300 and my parents paid the last $50 as a birthday present to me.
  • 1962 VW Bug, my Dad paid $60 for the thing. Wish I still had it!
  • $100(Australian)...it was a 24/80 Wolseley and I paid for it out of my wages from my apprenticeship of $25 per week before tax
  • It was a 95 Saturn. Cost me $4200 in 1999. I had it for nearly 2 years and never got one oil change on it. WOW.. i was dumb.
  • 93 (I think) Chevy Lumina. It's been sitting in our front yard for about 7 years, so the only cost is fixing it up. Which we have yet to do, and I don't have a way to pay for it myself. My parents tell me that I don't have to get a job. They think that I'll end up skipping out on college if I find a way to support myself. I can't honestly say that I won't. I don't particularly WANT to go to college, but neither of my parents did, and I don't want to end up like them, to be brutally honest. Still, I have my lapses in judgment on occasion. </off topic>
  • In 1974 I bought a Volkswagen Beetle(1963) with 180,000 miles on it. It was heavily laden with bondo and had no bumpers or running boards do to rust. It was $50. 6 months later I sold it to a friend who drove it back and forth to California from upstate new york 4 times.

  • About $12,000. And I'm buying it on my own, with no help at all. Before you lecture me on getting into debt at a young age (I'm 17), there's no need to worry. I've been raising, showing and selling cattle since I was about 7, and I have the means with which to pay for it.
  • My first car was a 96 Chevy Lumina. It was $3,900 before taxes and my mother put $1,000 down on it for me. I made every payment on the car until it blew a head gasket(???) it was too much to fix and I was going to be without a car for a few weeks so I told them to just keep it.

  • My first car is the Corolla Hatchback 2000. Costed $AU9000, my parents bought it for me and pay for the insurance and on road costs, while i take care of the petrol money. I think it's a fair deal since i'm 18 and living under the roof with a casual job.

  • My parents bought me my first car. I remember it like it was yesterday. We were driving home from my grandparent's house which was 40 minutes away from where we lived, and as normal I was staring out the window as we passed each little city on the expressway. Then all of a sudden I yelled to my dad, "Turn around, turn around!" My dad freaked and was like, "What?!?! What's wrong!?!?" I then told him, "There is my dream car! I want that car!". He didn't even get a glimpse of it and he knew I liked oldies, so he got off the next exit and made the u-turn. When we got to the lot it was a beautiful 1965 2-door white Chevy Impala. Oh Man! I loved that car! My dad fell in love with it too. So we all got off the car and looked around for the owner. The owner was selling it for $3500, but was willing to give it away for $2500 if we took it right there and then. So my dad pulled out his checkbook and wrote him a check for $2500. I felt so bad cause my dad said it was their savings, but I could tell that he wanted that car too. We got there around 5:30 and didn't leave till 9:00 with my new (but old) car in tow. It was a fixer-upper, but it was definitely worth it! Now you know a memorable moment in my life.

  • My first car was a dodge stealth 1995. I got it in 2000 for around 4000 dollar. Though my friend had a car dealership and help me get it for that good price. It was a nice car though, but risky for a new driver (Too fast).
