have you thought about a little pickup? get a four door model that you can carry your buddies in, gets decent mileage and it opens up more doors when you're looking for after school work?

deliveries and delivery jobs are great ways to make cash, network and you're not stuck shoving groceries in old lady mcgantries reusable shopping bag with the stains from the last box boy that stuck the mayo ontop of the eggs, and even though you didn't do it she'll treat you like you did, sure then you fire back " look bit*h that wasn't me...

oh excuse high school flash back, where was i?

It all depends on how much you want it. I wasn't born with a silver spoon in my mouth. My mother had hard times with my father leaving all the time. So to get my first car I took a part-time job my junior year and rode a bike 8 miles 5 days a week too and from my job to save for my car.
