    I resemble this thread Gray hair, overweight, and listen to Rock music (none of that Top 40 stuff).

    Ride multiple motorcycles, commute everyday on a Ninja to work. Drive a new WRX with Stage 2, Nameless exhaust, and just installed Sparco seats. Stereo types are becoming less and less these days. My wife, a year older than me, loves driving the WRX after I made the mods to it. Have to hide the keys when I'm at work...

    I object...I am in my 40's and I get lots of kisses blown at me, smiles and waves in my WREX, especially from 19 year "boys"

    What's 40, after all? It's the new 20's...

    Age is crazily subjective. At my engineering school, where the average time to complete your degree was 5 years, those who had been there past 4 were inducted into the "Older Than Dirt Club", in my circle of friends. We were 22, but seemed like old guys, next to the freshmen. Now, 22-year-olds mostly look like middle-school kids, to me.

    ^ and that's the gospel. . .
    My wife still gets to drive the WRX... it's just because she brought up the "you're too old" when I told her that this is what I wanted. I'll NEVAR forgive that!

    Even those who drive these things regularly start to have age anxiety apparently......

    Maybe he wanted a ride? Either way you should have just slapped him right on his stupid throat, then say "you know why!"

    It's when Papa buys a teenager their fast car that spurs problems. I have an issue with people automatically assuming young adults are going to be hard on their cars and drive them like asshats. I find that when someone buys their own car and works for it, far less stupid decisions are made. The fact that you're steadily thinking about how you're gonna have to work for another 4 months to pay off the repair bill tends to scare off rash decisions. I agree that it's good to warn people without experience, but as a 16 year old who has done a ton of saving to buy his WRX, I can attest to being assaulted with "have fun crashing your ricer, you idiot teenager" comments that aren't encouraging at all.

    However, judging from a quick look at RySTi's profile and recent comments, your reply is completely justified. I just want to spread the knowledge that not all teenagers with sporty cars are idiots.

    I wouldn't say that all teenagers are idiots. But they do get the stigma because they really do not know any better. Teenagers are just plagued by inexperience because they are truly ignorant. It's no fault of their own. If they save up to buy their own car, that's great, but that doesn't make them great drivers. They may respect and maintain their car better than someone who was handed a car by their parents, but you can't coach experience.

    Fair enough! And I also agree with the lack of experience leading to trouble. It's the "let's max out your car on a public road" decisions that I see leading to accidents and deaths that all stem from someone being handed a car and having a lack of respect for it. At least in my experience with my high school. But everyone must make mistakes and learn from them in order to become wiser. Same thing goes for driving.

    Basically the only reason I went on that rant was because I am an ignorant teenager who is trying not to look ignorant. I'm at the Pontiac Fierro Ferrari replica stage in my years, I guess. I can try to cover up the fact that I'm a stupid teenager with a red F40 body kit, but underneath, I am still a daft, undeveloped 4 cylinder that couldn't beat a dead frog in a race.
