Ok ladies....I have a situation I'd like to share with you and get your motherly opinions and advice on. Our youngest son is 19, he is the most responsible and trustworthy 19 year old that I have personally ever known, and has never given us any reason to doubt his word. For about a year now he has been obsessed with buying a Corvette. He knows he can't afford a brand new one and wants an '05. He works near full time hours and saves his money. Husband and I have been hoping that he would take at least a couple of years to save enough for the down payment but on Friday he announced to us that he now has enough money and is ready to start looking for one to buy. He will need one of us to co-sign the loan so essentially we are in control ultimately of whether or not he achieves this goal. He has his expenses all planned out so that he can afford both the car payment and full coverage insurance. Both husband and I feel that it seems unusual for a 19 year old to have a Corvette. It's not that we're afraid he's going to drive recklessly because that's not what he's about. We don't feel right telling him "no" just because we don't think a person his age should have such a car. It just doesn't seem right for some reason and I'd love to hear what others think!!
I guess maybe I'm looking for someone to tell me that it's ok? I dunno!
