    5.9 APR is DAMN GOOD. You need bullet credit for that, ESPECIALLY on a pre-owned.
    my first car at age 18 was a VW Golf with 60 hp. i think that building up your experience with cars less fast is a good way to go. a v8 f-body is a weapon.

    I totally agree with you there man, ive been driving for 3 years and im still learning. Im hoping to get an F-body this year or next.

    Ive went from a FWD Ford Taurus to a 4.3L RWD Xtreme. Its a different ballgame messing with a RWD truck because there is no weight in the back end to hold your wheels to the ground when you get on it hard. Its fun though, I love my little truck. No I havent gotten any tickets, ive been in 2 wrecks though, none of them my fault....dumbasses dont know how to drive w/o a cell phone in Pensacola. Its fun though.

    I think it's good to learn on a RWD. You don't have the false security of FWD, and won't expect RWD to react the same way and crash when you switch over.

    Look for a local credit union. When I say local, I mean very local.
    my current loan is from a credit union. and i would get rid of my current car. i would come out even if not ahead if i sold my car now. i've only had it for 6 months but i bought it knowing i wouldnt keep it long.

    How long have you been making payments on the loan you have now? Dealerships look for at least two years of car payments before they even consider offering you a loan. I got my mom to co-sign for me when I bought the car when I was 19. Lucky me.

    LOL.. I agree! Had 4 RWD cars... and still have 'em.

    When I was 16 I REALLY wanted a v-8 3rd gen car... and really coulddn't find one in my price range.. and now I'm glad... especially if I would have gotten an LS1 that I have now as a first car.. i KNOW I would have killed myself in HS with all the crap I did in my v-6!

    Did I mention that I didn't have a previous car loan. Don't finance through a dealership. They're looking for money on the backend based off of interest earned.

    Ya man...that really sucks...I know how you feel. I tried to finance a 04 Cobra here a while back...but they wanted over 10K down!!! Speaking from experience...don't fack up your credit now to have something you don't need. You say you're working min wage...which is going to really suck when making payments, paying insurance, paying gas, and fixing whatever goes wrong. I was stupid when I was younger and ran up a credit card with a 600 dollar limit...didn't pay on it for 7 months...Now I'm trying to buy a house...I'm a bartender and average about 18 bucks an hour. My lady makes around 16 a hour...her credit is nearly 700...mine is 517...we got pre approved for a 178K house...which out here in Oregon...won't buy a thing. The cheapest I've come across is 220K and it doesn't have a garage...and it's in the "hood"......Keep your credit good...wait it out...pay on your loan for a minimum of a year...but perferably as long as your deal is. Trust me...those SS aren't going to dissapear...
