OK, I’m not going to start the hate fest about teaching values and not understanding the concept of of “earning things” that inevitably comes out of these posts, but I will say this: who in their right mind thinks it’s a good idea to give a kid with no driving experience a 425 horsepower muscle car? Do you think this is going to end any way other than badly? Because I sure don’t.
Shane’s mom and dad, if you’re reading this, please get in touch with a good driving school, like the one near Starke run by Ivor Wigham. If you can afford to drop $35k on your kid’s car, you can afford to spend a few grand more teaching your son how to drive it. I’ve seen one too many funerals for kids that thought they could handle their birthday present BMW, Mustang, Camaro, Corvette, or Porsche. Spare me another, OK?
