Should an 18 year old get a Pontiac g8 gt as first car?

I'm paying for it with my own money and paying for insurance and I'm planning on going to the BMW performance driving school. And I'm getting this car because it's what I want and I was fought to go after whatever I want and don't settle because then you become a bunch of punk ass winers who drives a Honda or Toyota and who settle for less. I'm determined I work 3 jobs every day for the last year to buy this car.

You can get whatever you want as a first car. My advice would be to get something you can afford without having to be a slave to the car. And working 3 jobs (although I call BS) is going to the extreme, its still your money. Think about this for a minute, if any little dent or dent drives you crazy what will happen when its something major? Like a dented front fender?

Way to much power for any 18 year old would ever need.

Personally, I'm not sure why you are asking the question unless you are looking for validation/justification (from complete strangers) or just being provocative. Seems to me you'll end up doing what you want, I did at your age.

I started driving at the time when the muscle cars of the 60's were becoming affordable for guys my age. I had quite a few friends with small and big block Chevys, Fords and Mopars who survived them without too many tickets or fender-benders. Some of them were just plain lucky. I can't say they were all that responsible at that age.

Just keep in mind that we live and die by the choices we make and the consequences they bring. Also, your choices affect not only you and your future, but those around you as well.

Try to make good decisions.

I just realized that the original post is nearly 3 years old. I wonder how the OP faired. Did he survive?

Hmmm ...

Thanks Mel.

I remember when I was that young and foolish, so I can't really fault the guy too much. I survived though and I'd like to think I've matured some along the way.

I'm not as smart as I used to think I was, nor am I as smart as I'd like to be, but I'm smarter than I used to be.

Mel, some day, when you have nothing better to do, ask Sal about a kid from England on the Cadillac forum a few years ago. Name of McCombie.
