I got a car for my 16th birthday. It was a Pontiac Ventura. I would say get your brother a gift certificate for a place that he is interested in whether music, modding a car, movies, etc. That way he can pick out what he likes.

for when the bigger R/c'* are out of commission til i get the $200 or so to fix them

The camaro, STI, supra, and vette are most likely out of the question, though..discontinued last year or so

unless eBay..you can come across one

sometimes, radio shack has them on the shelves

imo, if he'* 16, he'd most likely like them alot

check them out, the starter kits for the evo series are now $50 if i remember right (G35/hummer/mitsu. evolution 8 MR/the other truck is a yellow F150 new style body)

the old ones were 50, but they discontinued them

That.. or some stuff for his car like wax, soaps, a nice bucket and sponge/cloth thing, rim shine/tire shine/all that stuff

at wally world they have car wash sets for like $15

maybe a gift certificate to camelot/fye/borders/another cd store?
tell him theres a set of wheels waiting for him in the gargage

If you decide to buy anything for the guitar, DONT GO TO DADDYS JUNKY MUSIC if you have one available!! BAD BAD BAD DADDYS!!!!!! Ive had nothing but problems with their gear, refunds, and staff.


Give him some cash, I knew I always liked it when I saw the GREEN

How about....

A set of cams for my car? I think he'd like that.


No, really. If you think the e-maxx things would be the ticket, go for it. Otherwise do as was said, cash cash cash.

If you can't be certain you're buying something he'll like, give him the option to get what he wants. That or a gift card to the dirty movie store

I find the best gift is something personal...base it off of his interests and wants, etc...for example, my bros 21st bday I got him a nice flask and had his nickname engraved on it. Personal and useful
