Just Drive She Said

What should a teenager's first car be? Given the amount of tragic accidents on the roads, I'm beginning to wonder if we should delay them driving at all until they are at least 35 years of age. However sometimes we forget what it was like to be a teenager. Of course I remember because it was yesterday (stop it!!!) but I can recall me in my Ford Cortina with the passenger doors that didn't open and my girlfriend in the Hillman which had no floor in the back seat. We would drag each other off at the lights reaching break neck speeds of nearly 40 kms an hour. Crazy days. Cars were a statement then as they are now. They had an engine that was about as powerful as the lawn mower but what mattered was the stereo system. The most high tech it got was a bass button the made everything sound like Motorhead singing underwater. The Ace of Spades ... the phrmphh of splosshsh.

  1. If you let them leave the house before age 45, definately a Mazda Capella. He/She will have no cred whatsoever, and therefore be unable to fall in with any 'bad crowds'...until he/she finds other ways to curry favour, and I'm not talking about a nice lamb rogan josh.
