Working is how I got my ride. Been working full time since I was 17 and saved most of the money.

This is my baby. 1997 Ford F-150 Lightning, the fastest stock truck that you can buy (381 HP stock). Plus I added the hood scoops for a turbo-charger and added another 44 HP. The next addition will be a nitrous kit. I can't wait.

why are you gonna turbo charge it if the lightning is already supercharged??? and those hood scoops wont do much unless youre going like 120mph, you'd probably get better airflow through the massive grill on those trucks, but no matter what, thats one tight ass truck...

and wait till next year till the dodge Ram SRT-10 comes out with the 8.3L viper engine :) gonna be pusshing 500hp :)

you made 20k in a year part time? are you a part time rocket scientist ;)

cause 20k saves in a year working partime is a bit much

Umm, not really...

I didn't spend the money on anything, I just saved it, and I worked full-time in the summer. :p

no rent? food? gas? insurance?

"LIVING AT HOME" allows one to save that money. All I can say is that it must be nice having ZERO financial responsibility to buy a car.

I'm not rich by far. Just have a decent paying job. finding a great rate on insurance helps alot. also, leasing helps big time. ;) if I hadn't have leased, my mthly payments would've been 2x what i'm paying now. waaaaaaay out of my budget

:o

here was my first ride....my grandma's car for grocery shop runs (Plymouth Sundance). mine was an '87 in sort of a bronze color, and had a huge dent in the roof that looked like 10 kids had sat on top of it. i swear it had less than 100hp, and would go 0-60 in 60 seconds with the AC on...:

next we have my current car (2001 Elantra GLS). same as this one, with sunroof and it's silver instead. oh and it's a 5psd:

and finally, the car i have been looking forward to for several years now (i think black, silver, or green will be my color choices) - the 2003-2004 RX-8:

I didn't have a digital camera around so I used a stock phote off of my fathers portfolio section on the Mercedes-Benz USA website. It's a 2002 SL500 Roadster convertible. It's my fathers but he lets me drive it whenever he doesn't need to use it.

2001 Hyundai Elantra GLS

Engine : 2.0 litre 140hp 4-Speed Automatic w/Overdrive

Looks identical to the one in the picture, no aftermarket accessories or modifications, though I am going to get a little tint added to the windows shortly and am considering a sunroof. But for now, just pure 24 / 33 MPG goodness. ;)

Honestly, it's a great car, serves me well, would highly suggest it to anyone looking for a reasonable ($12,499 - $13,999) car that isn't some little econobox.

My only advice is get the GLS, the GT just lacks the looks and is more expensive for very little extra.

PS: havyn, nice to see a fellow Elantra owner here! ;) Your's has the sunroof, Factory or Aftermarket?

I got rid of the supercharger because superchargers and NOS don't work too well together. Plus, I ran it on the DYNO before and after I put the turbocharger in and didn't lose any horsepower.

Lightnings have been around since before '97. A guy that lives down the road from me drives a '94 or '95 Lightning.
