Well we bit the bullett and found my daughter a car. She is turning 16 this weekend and will take her road test Nov 5th. We got this car, ford Escort Sport from a friend of mine who works at an Auto parts yard, they rebuilt the motor in this about 4 months ago and they have been trying to sell it, they knocked thr price down to sell it to us, so we are very happy with it. Mariah is just in love. Its her CAR! Shes all over it, sitting in it, making sure that its clean.....just really totally in love right now. Lets just say thats a pretty sweet "SWEET 16 birthday gift"
