I got my license 2 months after I turned 16. "My" first car, was given to me to use right after that, a 89 (I think) pontiac grand prix. The first car that was mine we bought a few months after we got married, so I was 20, and it was a 98 Dodge Stratus.
I actually haven't got my full license yet. I've taken and failed the test twice so far. For stupid little things as well. But this summer should be the summer I get it I won't have a car for years to come either.
