That'* what I'm thinking... your Mom must be REAL observant and have a nice working knowledge of cars! I don't think my Mom could even tell you what a burnout IS ... my dad puts gas in their cars and she just drives 'em.

Well she just likes to inspect the car [she thinks I may have been driving it]. Which.. I have, but I don't want to get caught, because i'm kinda 14. Just kinda though .

dude, that'* an easy way to get into some real trouble. you may want to cool it on the illegal runs, depending how far you're going. if you're not supposed to be driving the thing at all and you're driving aggressive enough to lay down a little rubber then she might notice after all. who knows? my advice would be to stop taking the car if you're not supposed to. i know it seems like you can't wait to drive the thing, and you love to take it out, but think about the consequences! it'* not worth it to be lying to your mom and sneaking behind her back to do something illegal, plus the fact that if you get caught by the law you'll have to wait even longer to get your real license. our culture is focused on instant gratification a little too much these days. seriously, and i don't mean this to be a lecture, wait to drive until you're legal, and don't spend all your part-time job money on all that stuff listed in your sig. believe me, it is not worth it. you will get out of high school and really really really wish you had some more money for college. i know because as my years of school go by my debt keeps getting larger and larger. take this for what you will, and good luck with school.

some advice--

a little trust goes a long way-- if your mom trusts you, she'll let you do more. So build the trust now, so when you ARE 16, you may be some slack on things like curfew-etc.

this is also true. sorry if we sound like a bunch of jerks, justin, but this stuff actually works. having a better relationship with your mom (trust, honesty, etc.) will do more for you in life than any car can. it'* almost along the lines of "money can't buy you happiness." having a bonneville is a pretty insignificant thing in proper perspective. yeah, we like our cars, but it'* just a car. it would be better to love the people in your life and walk everywhere than lie to your family and own a pontiac.

loL guys.. I know its wrong, I know I shouldn't be doing it, and I won't get caught. Local cops drive by me all the time. big news i've added you to MSN, i want to talk to you there.

My mom trusts me, I haven't had to lie about anything, yet. My mom is crazy though.. so I don't know either way once I get my license, I have a feeling i'll be sneaking around still. She lets me drive with her [that'* how I actually know how to drive]. But our deal is, we take my car and mine doesn't meet her "par" of running. She'* just crazy, that is the only way to sum up about my mom.

Yikes. That is a VERY dangerous attitude to have man, from one car lover to another. You will get caught eventually, regardless of whether any cop has decided to stop you yet. It only takes one.
