My first car was a 1986 Mercury Grand Marquis that was off-blue with a human sized rust circle on the hood. Thing went through so much oil an power steering fluid... Was like driving your living room couch. Eventually THAT one ended up dying on its own accord. No wreck needed. Though, I will say, I didn't care if I hit a few parking girters in that bucket. We called the car "Vern".



Next was a 1976 Chevy bonanza that was orange and white whose floorboard on the passenger side had completely rusted out the size of a welcome mat and you could see the road clearly passing under your feet as you drove... And to put a very large piece of rubber over it during the rain/snow or you'd get wet. And don't forget it was there or it'd eat your homework/bookbag. Seriously. About a CASE of oil a week. It was alright though, I bought it for $300 and I got a discount on oil bc I worked at the local farm store.

Your last sounds like one of my best friend's cars. His car literally lost pieces as he drove :lol: Any time I rode with him, I'd bring my own towel, otherwise I'd end up with seat stuffing all over me. Funny enough, his grandmother, the one who raised him a majority of his life, had bookoos of money, and I am sure she could have dropped 50 grand on a car easily, but she never did and he was just fine driving his hoopty. Even when his grandmother died and he moved in with his aunt and uncle, they drug that car across country for him. He now drives a 2004 Ferrari Spider that he paid for by his own hard work.......so, it worked out, I guess :lol:

Don't buy your niece a car. I had to work for mine and I treated it better and it meant more to me than my friends who were given cars. Everyone I know that got a brand new car for their 16th birthday either wrecked it doing something stupid, or didn't take care of it. Give her a little bit of money towards a car instead.

Dunwoody is in the Atlanta area, but it is its own city.

Ohhhhhh ok.
I go to the Atlanta area regularly for doctor appts. There are some very nice places and then there are ghetto places I would never want to be lol. i got lost once and it was pretty unnerving lol. Dunwoody is pretty nice. I haven't been in a while, but last I went it was a good place to be.
