    I have to agree with most of you, But I hope he doesn't take advantage of it and kill him or someone else. I had to work for everything I have and I am damn proud what I have been able to accomplish.

    good point .. most times you do something stupid is because someone tells you to do something and says if you dont your a 'wuss'...

    Good for him! It's nice to see his parents want him to be happy. I just hope they appreciate him while he's still alive.
    34 years ago when I was 16 and knew I was the best driver on the highway, I had a 72 Maverick Grabber with a 302 pushing a whopping 130HP that was fasssst for its day. Looking over in the passenger lane was a girl I went to school with driving her VW bug. Dawn Meyers was her name and I was showing off in my super fabulous fast ass ride then...bang!!!! Ran straight into the back of a van.
    Had a full week of driving in before that car was history.

    I will admit that I agree with 90% of you in your personal opinions. My whole things is, some of you act like these parents are just downright ignorant to the fact that they have no clue about the danger of handing their son a brand new 'maro.

    I don't know the kid, the family, his friends, none of that. Sometimes I ponder why these videos are even posted on here? A chance to pitch complaints about "when I was 16...."? Jealousy? A chance to complain? What?

    No. More like wisdom and being able to remember being 16 and the stupid chances we took. The friends that are no longer with us because of the chances they took. Coupled with the power of these cars. That's all.

    Maybe I'm just getting old and overly cautious

    I totally understand what you're saying but it sounds like everyone is telling each other what everyone already knows, feels, and has the same opinion on... I find it simply ridiculous, however slightly amusing, when these threads come along. In the end, nothing is accomplished amongst members on the board, really!

    I just hope the kid uses his head.

    I personally would not get my 15 year old a car like that. But to each their own.

    Gotta admit the prank was very nicely executed.

    And, I also realize that not everybody is born with the need for speed. I think most of us here were. I know none of my girlfriends in school or even some guy friends back in high school were.

    But, for those of us who are, the last thing we needed was a super fast first car. We may have wanted one more than anyone else, but, a little experience behind the wheel is always a good thing first

    Hey, when I started driving, The Dukes of Hazzard was my favorite show. Um... that's what I wanted to emulate and did. That pretty much says it all

    However, somehow... I've only had one accident and that was in my 30's and not my fault.

    Not everyone is so lucky
