I'm poor. Took me until 43 for my first and only so far. I've only had it a little more than a year. I was only dreaming of one when I was 16 like the OP.

Got my first C5 when I was 41. Got my first Corvette when I was 18 and have had Corvettes ever since.

46. Always were other priorities (Whole Family skis every weekend of the Winter and Son races). My younger brother died at 43. After that I said F-it, life's too short! Wife has been real good about it too!

My c5 at 45

But I had a GT390 fastback mustang at 17
A Camaro at 21
An 86 C4 at 30

Here in NZ, American cars cost way more

28, as others mentioned some things occured that make you relize life is short...

to the OP, congrats that is an accomplishment that many work for years and years to achieve. To do so by that age is really saying something!
