My first car at 16 was an 84 Camaro Z28. The car was gorgeous. It was only 3 years old, low miles, had t tops. My parents bought it for me. I worked some part time but not enough to buy a car like that. On a side note, some people think that a kid should be made to work for and earn everything or they will grow up to be some self entitled deadbeat. Not true. I went on to earn a Masters degree and I work every week except the 3 weeks I get off for vacation every year. Some of my greatest teenage memories revolve around that Z28. I wish I still had it for that reason alone. To the OP, I say if you get one just be careful. I know it is hard at 16 to practice that R word "restraint," but you will have to in a car with nearly 400 HP or you will get either hurt or in trouble. If you get it, enjoy it and post some pics of it. Good Luck.
