My mother's burgundy Lumina.



Like the OP, that's not a pic of it, but it's the same model (I think).
At the time, I listened to a lot of Kiss, Metallica, and AFI. And Fozzy (Chris Jericho's band )

a 1993 Ford Ranger.


Mine was silver, more beat up than this one, and didn't have the extended cab, lol. One of the cylinders had very little compression, and 0-60 was something like 15-16 seconds.

The song was probably, if I remember right, either Happy by Pharrell Wiliams, or Counting Stars, by One Republic.

A '98 Chevrolet Cavalier. Though the image isn't of my exact car.



It was my sister's car when she was in High School, but we're 4 years apart so the year she left for college was the year I started high school. Plus she was going to school in Boston where a car was unnecessary for her so before I even had my license it essentially became mine. That is until I rear ended an SUV in traffic the summer after graduation and totaled it.

Probably listened to The Mad Caddies album Quality Soft Core the most then. Didn't have a CD changer so I would usually just leave in a single CD and let it play through multiple times before swapping for a different one. But Quality Soft Core still brings back memories of High School every time I listen to it.

My car was a 1995 Pontiac Sunfire (Not my picture). My car had so many engine issues. I had to say goodbye half-way before graduating High School.



The popular songs I remember listening in my car was:

Chris Brown - "With You"
Rihanna - "Take a Bow"
Kayne West - "Good Life"

1997 Mercury Mystique, I hated that car had to put it in neutral and rev it at red lights to keep it from dying out on me. I don't remember the music I listened to was most whatever was on the radio so pop, country, or oldies. Terrible radio stations where I live no rock of metal.

You made it to the third year of college at the age of 16.....why do I find that hard to believe?


Driving age in my country is 17 (learner's permit actually) and my birthday is in October. Most of us here leave high school by the time we're 15 or 16.

No car yet, in senior online highschool. Starting college soon hopefully, so Ill need a car unless its totally online.
Im not one of those people who like to drive around a lot, point A to point B with detours in mind - along the safest route.
As for a car I would like? A soul. (Obviously, not likely.. however I don't feel safe travelling around in beaters the classics)
Overall NHTSA safety rating 5 stars - 2016 KIA SOUL Has a real nice sharp look too, love the style of the body.

As for the music Id listen to in it?
Electronic/EDM/Pandora
Or nightcore, thats always an option. https://youtu.be/EqV4LDamEdc?t=12m47s

Hopefully we will have self-driving cars soon, GTC announcements and advancements have me excited!
On that note, how expensive is an average fare in Uber?

I honestly have no interest in driving or even getting my permit/license. One of my friends lives two houses down and has no issues driving me to school and back.

Same here, many people are really exited to get their first car and permit/license... but im not feeling it either. The fact that America is based around each and every one of us having one of these upsets me a little bit, and that there are more idiots behind the wheel than you can imagine. I don't feel safe on the roads where I live, 40% of everyone driving is either way too old, intoxicated, or has their phone out.
Cop car passed me on the highway recently in my parents car and both cops driver/passenger had their phone out.
Good lord

I relate so much to not feeling safe on the roads... I don't even feel safe walking on the side of the road. A kid from my high school has tried to run me over numerous times. I also don't feel the need to drive because I will most likely always live in an area where I won't need to. My top college is Carnegie Mellon in Pittsburgh, and they have decent public transport. So yeah I can't stand feeling so pressured to drive it really bothers me. People tend to not understand that not all life forms revolve around "basic life essentials" (?) or whatever.

Senior Year was 1978-1979. I drove a Raleigh 10-speed, and I was heavily into (here's some irony) The Cars, when I wasn't wearing out my Ramones albums, my Mike Oldfield albums or my latest set of guitar strings.

Here's the weird part to all of that: when I wasn't acting like a late-70's teenager as above, I was probably practicing my oboe.

Yeah. Oboe. I also played a little Jazz Saxophone.

When I went to my 20th reunion, my wife asked some of my old acquaintances what I was like in high school. The number one response was, "He was kinda weird." I cannot imagine why.
