Automatic. =\

edit: At first I was going to post that you had to hold on the question because I didn't know what a tranny was, quick google gave me "transmission". So there you go.

Other specs I know by head: 4 Cylinders 137HP. Great great handling though. We just put new tires on it so I can't really have fun. I'll wait until they're a little more bald.

137hp will get you up and going pretty well. Sounds like a 4 car. I want to get a little 4 banger sometime, they are kind of fun to drive. I like driving my dad's subaru. It feels so wierd to me though. His powerband starts where mine ends. I will be pulling out of a road, and the rev hits like 4.5k and I am like WTF! I'm hardly touching hte throttle! Oh yeah, its the 4 cylinder... Cause when my truck hits 4.5k it has power, but the engine is roaring, and it is guzzling down gas.
Anyway, have fun with it! I know what you mean about your mom though... my mom is the same. She has to know everything about where I am going, it sucks...

Well, I can't really blame her, just looking out for me. Plus, she'll be paying for gas. So what am I complaining for?! I just wish my greencard was out so I could get an actual job. I haven't gotten one student to tutor for math yet.

My sister had to work 30k away from here,and there is ONE bus that comes at lunch time around here,she had to pay friends/family/relatives to get here there.

Think outside the box.

Default Re: Getting my mom's car tomorrow!!!!!

ive been trying to get hired by all the place near me for about 2 years, and so far, none of them called back.
I would take the bus, but i dont really like being late, and if i miss the bus then i will be late, and i will feel bad. My mom gets tired after work, my dad works for 12 hours a day, i only have one friend that has a car, and he is way to lazy.

I kind of have a job, though it pays under the table. I help my friend with his deliveries, but i only get paid in tips and about 18% of his paycheck. For the past 3 weeks, I have only been getting about $10 a day from tips. Kind of hard to save up for a car with this kind of pay, especially when i am trying to rebuild my computer again.
