ok.I drive a 95 Firebird T/A and I love it. There is nothing wrong with getting a sports car at 16 if you are responsible like others have mentioned. The power and cool points you get are the ups, and the gas mileage and implacability are the downfalls. What you need to do is try out different cars and find out what you really want. I pay for all of my gas and half of my insurance and I am still able to buy computer parts and what not so don't be afraid to get something that costs a bit more. I'm happy to go on and blabber about my car because I do love it. The power is awesome, knowing I could do donuts if i wanted to burn my tires is an awesome thing. My first car was a 91 escort. It was a good car that took me from point a to point b, but if you are a car enthusiast like myself then chances are, like you said, you will want something more. IM me if you want to talk about it 1:1

Apparantly you haven't ridden or driven a muscle car enough or you simply believe the rumors of that. My car has excellent cornering and no body roll at all. You can whip out the back if you give it too much gas, but the car definatly handles well. (4 wheel disk brakes also makes for nice stopping power
Also, many of you have said that the camaro is not a muscle car....how do you figure that? The camaro, like the mustang is one of the most popular, affordable muscle cars, and a 350 packs a lot of punch.
