This reminds me of a guy that bought a '09 Evo X from my work for his son a few months back...




...his son is 16.

If I had a Evo at 16, I would be dead right now, I did enough dumb **** in my Oldsmobile.

Stupid parenting if you ask me. Youre 17 for gods sakes.


Youre dad should be more concerned about you boning girls, not what you do with your car in your free time.

Nothing useful to add.

Just gotta say, that after being pissed off nearly the whole day, this made me laugh.

Being 17: Free
Turbo kit for your 'gay car', to earn back some respect: $2000
Having your Dad pull the fuse, after he finds out: Priceless


P.S. Why is it I remember Terminator as being way cooler, then when I watch it, I have this knee-jerk of "oh, yeah, that was sooo cheesey..". But hey, it does have the Governator.

Your parents know you better than anyone on this forum. I'll even bet they care more about your well being than anyone on this forum. They're likely looking at your maturity and responsibility level now and deciding not to let you drive the car for a month. A hundred people on this forum might blindly disagree with their actions given your age alone, but that doesn't mean ****.

Be glad you're getting the car back in a month. If your dad stumbled upon this thread with pictures of everybody's wrecked Miatas, he might think twice.

Turboing Your Car Behind Dad's Back Cost You A Month Of Driving. If You Turn 18 And Are Still On The Dole - You Came Out Pretty Good. Don't Push It By Putting The Fuse Back In.

Everyone that knows me in real life knows i am the **** and that i **** tons of hoes and that my dick is huge and that i get swole in the gym and that i am a COCKY ************ and i get away with it. As long as people that know me IRL know this, I am content. I don't give a **** what anybody on this site says or thinks. I will be back with proof whenever i feel like maxing out again and it will probably be more than 465.

My dad took me autocrossing when I was 17, and bought me my first set of Hoosiers.

My dad bought an FD Rx7 in 2000 or 2001, and he told me I would never drive it alone. When I bought my car, it was still that way. Then I put the suspension and such on my car, and we started tracking it together, and he was a little more lenient.

Then I turbocharged it, and now it scares him. He recently traded the FD on an E46 M3, and he asked me if I wanted to trade keys with him to see how the M3 stacked up. (slow )

Smart move on the Dad's part.
While the kid is 17, everything he does the parents are liable for.

When my 16yr old sister let her 15yr old stoner friend borrow her '88 Sentra, the girl put 5 people in and tried to turn a residential street-corner at about 50mph and ploughed into a Nissan pickup. Nobody was seriously hurt except the driver who left the scene and walked home. That's right, SHE fled the scene of an accident she caused... since she was 15, unlicences, and unisnsured, there wasn't a single charge she could be hit with.

The girls parents took our insurance company to court and won big... then took my parents to civil court and won big (homeowners insurance covered it). Everything was my sisters fault cause she was older and gave the younger girl the car.

Anything your kid does until the day he/she turns 18 is your fault in civil court.

I look at this whole situation the same way I look at the guns in the home issue. Rather than keep the gun away from the kid until they're an adult, show him/her how to use it, get familiar with it, but most of all teach them to respect it and the damage it can do if mishandled.

So it should be the same for the fast Miata. Rather than pulling your fuse, maybe your dad could enroll you in a good defensive driving course, or take you racing. Pulling the fuse is a lot easier and less expensive, but not necessarily effective. I know I wouldn't have let it stop me if I was 17.
