She's ok noone was hurt at all. Someone gave her the right of way to turn into their lane(made a left turn) and when she waved to thank the person for the kind deed she didn't notice the traffic was stopped and ran it into a Ford F150. Now she is without wheels till the insurance company gets it fixed and she comes up with the deductable. Oh yea, she's only 16 too. no ticket was written or any fines so she skirted loosing her license at such a young age

Damn plastic cars....

So...is she getting something better or worse?

My brother totalled his truck...he got a mustane.

My friends dad wrecked the back part of my truck...I got a Huffy...

the bad part is I just spent $850 to replace the front bumper cover and to paint the bumper cover a few months ago.

At least it's not "wrecked".

That's a newer version of the one a lady drove under the front end of my Ranger. Same color too.

She must have a good job! That's a nice car for such a young girl. Glad she's OK.

just a reminder that no-one is totally 'safe' and to drive defensively

If you bought your 16 year old a TA you need to do some serious head scratching. Glad she's OK.

A Firebird driven by a 16 year old? How much is that monthy insurance payment, and what's it going up too?
Link Posted: 9/10/2004 7:43:13 PM EST
Why does a 16y/o have a firebird?

Nothing personal, but shouldn't she have started off in something less flashy, less powerful, and a little more tank-like?

Glad no one was hurt
Link Posted: 9/10/2004 7:43:51 PM EST
Looks like somebody is spoilled rotten , what "normal" 16yoa female would have a car like that

Hell, at 16 youre just learning to drive & should expect accidents, that's why they need to own/drive semi clunker to keep our insurance costs down.
Link Posted: 9/10/2004 7:44:07 PM EST
might just be a 3.8 firebird.
Link Posted: 9/10/2004 7:45:35 PM EST
Glad she is okay but I have to agree with the Captin. 16 yearolds and sport cars don't mix.

damn the spelling nazis.

And it is just a firebird. 3.8 liter

Why would you give your 16 year old daughter a 300 hp car???

That is still too much for a 16 y/o.
Link Posted: 9/10/2004 7:49:13 PM EST
Dude thats a lot of car for a 16yo. Whats wrong with a Focus or something in that HP range? 16yos and 200+Hp = accidents and tickets.

I had a Z28 when I was 16. It was not good. Got a ticket the first day. Then an old lady turned onto a oneway street and ended that car. I ended up with a GrandAm and didnt get anymore tickets.
Link Posted: 9/10/2004 7:50:38 PM EST
Just what a 16 year old needs..... a V8, RWD, 300hp SPEED machine. Her insurance must be insane.
Link Posted: 9/10/2004 7:51:59 PM EST
Glad she's OK ............. I have a teenage driver too . Looks like about $3200 to me

Maybe more. Looks like that front wheel or suspension maybe bent. There is definitely a chip out of that wheel too. Just that wheel and new tire is going to be around $250-350.

no damage to the drivetrain at all, most of it is just the body. She drives good for her age. This is the only problem she has had, and not to have problems driving in this mad house of Atlanta is pretty good at any age.
Link Posted: 9/10/2004 7:56:59 PM EST
You gave your 16 year old a sports car?
Link Posted: 9/10/2004 7:57:50 PM EST
BTW, this thread is worthless without photos of the daughter.

Man, All I got when I was 16 was a 1981 Datsun King Cab truck. Wouldnt go over 75mph, must have had 50 hp...
Link Posted: 9/10/2004 8:01:33 PM EST
around here an accident and tickets are reasons for pulling a teenagers license.
And I don't think I should put a pic of my 16 year old
Link Posted: 9/10/2004 8:02:35 PM EST
I agree no PICs of minors. Will you buy me a firebird? I would really like one.

Here's what I was given at 15 to drive. We were lucky to drive at 15 instead of 16 now

The damn thing didn't even run when I got it and as you can see we did alot of body work.

I bought my own motorcycle at 16. My parents didnt give me a car.
Link Posted: 9/10/2004 8:15:41 PM EST
I agree she should earn her wheels but we only make her pay the insurance payments and now she will learn a big lesson on money and what it cost when you f*ck up.
Link Posted: 9/10/2004 8:19:13 PM EST
first driving lesson in my dads oldsmobile, this was taken in 80
Link Posted: 9/10/2004 8:34:56 PM EST
My parents gave me a V-8 powered car as my first car.
Too bad it was 318 attached to a 1964 Plymouth station wagon.

My friends used to make fun of me till one time when they saw me at the drive in movie.
I was on a date and had the car backed into the spot with the tailgate down with me and the date under the blankets in the back. Watching the movie Mother, Jugs & Speed .

Daddy can give his little princess anything he wants. It's not up to us to belitttle what little thinking he did.

Clearly both have learned lessons.

My boy in the AF didn't get a car until he bought one. Got the "Mommamobile" an 88 Chevy Caprice Wagon. It has served him well in the hurricanes. My 19 year-old thought he was going to inherit it. Already renamed it the "Shaggin Wagon" and still is walking. Finding out that Dad isn't buying or helping with insurances. Boy did he get surprised when he found out we weren't kidding..

The down side is one of his buddies is selling him a full size Dodge Van for $1.00. Taking it to his Auto class at the CC to be the guinea pig. Have a friend that will check out the brakes and suspension. Hmmm, a van for a dollar. I wonder what he will name this one.

I dont see much wrong with the car choice there, my first car was a 92 PI Crown Vic.

I think it's cool you bought your daughter a TA. If she's a good kid you give her what you can. IT'S YOUR PEROGATIVE!

The wreck sounds and looks minor. It's a bummer she hit a truck, looks like it went under his bumper to wrinkle the hood like that.

Glad she's ok!

Do I really need to answer this one? Imagine this scenario....

your precious 16 year old daughter
Focus vs. SUV

Need I say more?

Lot of fricking armchair parents who think they know how to raise somebody else's kid here on this site.

Sheesh.

Dude... wanna be my dad?

17 y/o, driving a 160hp '97 Taurus GL.

1 crash. Hit by Drunk. His insurance covered everything without giving me any shit.

A few weeks ago, the brakelines rotted the fuck out. That was "interesting", going down a twisty ass road, when all of a sudden "oh shit my brakes aren't working anywhere near as good as they should..." followed by a 3 point turn and "oh shit my brakes aren't working at all". Managed to get home with the E-brake surprisingly without incident.

teenagers and sports cars do not mix. I had an Acura Integra when I was 16, but it got wrecked. I was hit from behind at a stop light behind about 6 cars. The guy that hit me was a 16 year old dumbass. It was his SECOND wreck. That so far has been the only collision I've been involved in.

My whole life, I've only had 4 cylinder vehicles, until last year, I finally got a V6 and have the most power I've ever had in a vehicle. Sure, it's only up to about 200 at the crank, but it's still pretty quick. I may supercharge it next year and get it to about 280hp... but I'm a bit older (28) and can handle it. A teenager simply couldn't handle it.
