    My first car was a 97' honda accord. I didn't own it, but that is that car my parents allowed me to borrow to drive back/forth to school. When I graduated from HS I bought a s10 blazer zr2, which is one of my favorite vehicles I ever owned. That thing could go anywhere. Unfortunately they don't make them anymore. It was a five speed and was really easy to learn how to drive a manual with that truck. It did start to fall apart after 80,000 miles though (it was a chevy and I beat the crap out of it). I would recommend a late 90's early 00's honda of some kind (not a fan of the civic, but loved the accord). Either that, if you can get your hands on a fairly treated 2.5rs (late 90's early 00) that would be a great car too. Good luck with your decision!

    True, there is definitely more potential to get into trouble with a RWD car, but that goes for many things in life. You need to have maturity and self-control and you'll be fine. Don't get things to safeguard yourself; YOU need to just be smart. To each their own, but if there is a RWD car you like, go for it. Just be safe. Miata's are very fun cars to drive, too; the stigma just sucks. But if you don't care, it will give you years of fun driving; those things are damn near bulletproof.

    My first 3 cars where old rally escorts. These where never what is known as an Escort here in the States. If interested they are easy to find on the interwebs. Anyways, I grew up in Germany and this was in the mid-late 70's. The first one lasted me a whopping 5 days and I hade it folded up, on it's roof, in the center of the country road at midnight in the Belgian Ardennes in the middle of winter to boot. The next cars lasted me quite a bit longer. All of them had small, 1600cc (about 75HP) engines with 1100cc rears. so they where not fast but could accelerate very well, up to some 80miles top speed. And I was 19 at the time, with very limited budget. Bottom line: there is a learning curve and NOBODY (I'm convinced) is BORN a perfect driver. I've done some stupid stuff, and I'm not even quite over it, might pull some stupid stunt again any day...
    WRX is NOT a beginners car, my modded one is really bad as far as not giving warning before it breaks loose, and when it does break loose it goes bye-bye like it was on grease. "Normal" cars squeal tires and start pushing while still under (almost) perfect control. That's where you learn counter steering, or to put in more steering, hit gas or brake, all depending on the driving characteristics of the particular car. A WRX is not at all out of the question, but I'd advise for to wait with that until a bit later. Trust me, whatever car you get, there will be some horse-play and it's cheaper with a cheaper (i.e. beater) car and easier to replace. For one thing you would not like to make payments for a car that no longer exists while you still need another ride.

    My brother's was a '72 skylark convertible. It was pretty nice when he got it, but he wrecked it a bit then got an Earl Scheib paint job (poop brown). I bought it from him years later but it was getting too rusty to deal with then (Cleveland winters). My dad had an 80's K-car skylark that I drove when I was 16 too (along with teh Estate Wagon with the 455 lol).

    Nothing against SK (StreetKing), nothing at all. He seems to be very reasonable and actually getting his brain around the ideas presented. He will be alright. And I for one have no problem if he would like to hang around.

    Those were nice. Like most earlier Hondas they suffered from what I feel was limited suspension travel and poor dampling choices, so they both wallowed and bottomed out -- combined with early Yokos that wasn't a good combo on uneven surfaces. The handling was otherwise indifferent, but hesitant enough to keep the car moving face first into whatever was unavoidable at the time (preferable to a spin). However the carbs were good, the switches all kept working, and they were before Hondas evolved the tendency to burn out dash lamps. I'd drive one.

    You might want to check out a Chevy Cavalier. I was informed by 2 males at a stop light that they are vastly superior to a WRX or any Jap crap.

    I feel that cars should be earned, always start with a cheap beater and work your way up. I went through 12 cars and 2 motorcycles before I got my WRX.

    First car was a 1990 VW Passat, $500 with a snapped timing belt and 16 crushed valves, invested $500 and upgraded after 4 months $2000 richer.
