I’m 16, and though I don’t have my license or anything yet, my dad decided since he didn’t have a reliable car to get to work anyway, he would go to a car auction and get me a car. He will be using it until I get my permit. The day I get it, the car is all mine [: I love it. It’s a 1995 Jeep Cherokee, with black front and rear bumpers (the rest is white), custom back lights, and through one of the bars of the front is a purple pinstripe heartbeat. 11 months ago

How I did it: i bought it from my great aunt after she bought hernephew's car. I got it from her for $200. Ipaid $150 and my dad paid $50 to it. It was so exciting when I bought it and it drives really good. It is a 20 year old car with a 2 year old A/C and four new tires but we have to put in $500 for new motor mounts and a gasket thingy. that's not including new shocks and anew paint job.

How I did it: I have wanted a car ever since I got my license, but i wasn't serious about saving for one until I started working full time 8 months ago. What helped is that everytime I cashed my check I made sure I saved at least $200. Every month I saved $1000 and presto! I got my 2008 Honda Civic EX for $11000. It's my first car and it was worth the wait!

This was more of a goal to get a second vehicle since my husband and I have been sharing what started out as his truck. Over the summer that was easy since we have a motorcycle, but being up North and winter approaching we needed SOMETHING, anything. I figured we’d find me something, but we ended up getting his co-worker’s little S10. Since it is two-wheel drive, and he is more accustomed to snow driving than I am coughcoughSoutherngirlcoughcough he will be taking that. It is way better on gas than our big Ford, so I wish it was four-wheel drive since my work requires me to drive A LOT. We hope to get something nicer in the summer. 17 months ago
