Wonder how much for the wheels

Classicmotoringllc.com - my new brokerage and consulting business based out of a lavishly converted first floor bedroom in Allentown, PA. I am always looking for quality enthusiast cars to consign, research projects or consultation opportunities. Keep an eye on my page as you can see my blabberings about cars and other such junk in the blog section!
he's speaking "coddled by merely middle class parents who believed they were resourceful enough to avoid raising me with a false sense of security."
it's cool for facebook and stuff, but it's brutal for job interviews and relationships. it's like ebonics 2.0.

Personally, I like the car. It looks clean and well looked after. I would have killed to have a similar car (and hotties) in High School.
Fact is, the kid is/was in high school. What do you expect? Does he look like a douche? Well, yes but a lot of high-school aged kids are... and many of us that post here probably were too... and many still are, (myself included, at times).
So what if his parents got him a ride? if your dad offers you a brand new GTi youd say no? I don't think so. Everyone here hating on him is a savage piece of sh/t and is JULOUS
meanwhile when i was 16 i can say i got myself a free GTI, did lots of mods and paid up for them by selling ad space on a website i built during that time (i didnt intend for it to make $ but i kept getting offers)..accumulated no less than $37,000 in 2 years.
Dude looking at those pics in 10 years - "Man, I am so cool. I still got it. Why move out when I have a whole wing to myself at my parents?"
Chicks looking at those pics in 10 years - "What the **** were we doing hanging around with that little dousche? Oh yeah, his parents let him have parties in their house and bought us booze."
Expose your cracks and love will fill them.
All I know is, I would have loved to have that car in HS. Or even now!
Well off/affluent/rich DOES NOT automatically equal "spoiled". Stop judging so hard. Hating (for lack of a better term) on this kid doesn't make you any cooler.
If you were in high school and your dad/parents gave you a new car and a budget to make it awesome, would you turn it away and say "No dad, I'd rather have a 1991 toyota corolla"? No you wouldn't. You'd take the car and rock the hell out of it. Just because you are gifted something does not mean that you aren't able to treat it with respect and appreciate it.
Oh and for the "bought not built" derpbags - A professional shop like the one his car was taken to has the means and knowledge to do the work at a higher quality and precision than almost all of the DIYers on this site. I do all my own work (welding, painting, maintenance, fabrication, bodywork, interior) and have DIY'd just about everything on all my cars... and guess what? If I had the means I'd rather drop it off at the best shop I could find and have the work done there, probably faster and at a higher quality than I could do.
youre missing the original point, there is a 99% chance the kid is a spoiled brat - walks around acting like the baller he ISN'T on his dads coin and probably talks about swag entirely too often...
if that didnt get across, look at the suit he is wearing to what appears to a be a prom of sorts. now think back to high school dances and the douches that used to wear top hats and a cane to be little attention whores.
i think thats the gist of it.
Word. All my HS friends that were well off and had parents that bought them nice cars are doing well for themselves. Either on their own, or taking over the family business, but there's nothing wrong with providing nice things if you have the money to do so.
You're not hindering them. If anything, they will have more of a feel for nice things, how to treat them and have experienced the world more, giving them an edge in most certain situations where graces are called for.
I'm really just here for the pancakes.
I'm Sorry Hachi... I love you.
It all comes down to the person. I've known Dollar Menunaires-types spoiled rotten and "ballin outta control" in their used Infinity G35, and on the flipside actual millionaires who are just regular people, not out to flaunt their wealth or prove to the world how great they are.
Just because you are born into a certain circumstance does not dictate that you will be a certain type of person, right?
I think that if the person who was driving the car (I won't say own since the little **** doesn't own anything), was not such a tool in the pictures that it would not be such a bad scenario.
However putting a sticker/decal like that on your car automatically puts you in the reject pile.

Most of you are pissed cuz somebody like him f.u.c.ked all the girls you liked in HS. You are probably those guys that look at the guy in his luxury sports car and think "what a rich prick", while you rolling in your Camry S.
I don't care what the gifts do to him. Not my money nor my child.
As for me being spoiled rich kid or "barely middle class" I'll just LOL.
