I started working at the age of 14 so I could save for my first (Dream) car. My job was a caddie at the local country club which allowed my to work seven days a week if I wanted to. Of course I wanted to and I did so saving my money was not a problem since I was still living at home. I put many miles on my bike and all this taught me to obtain I car I wanted then I needed to work. So after two years and using some of my own money I had saved from other little jobs I finally had almost enough money to purchase the (New) 55 ford. My dad did help me some with insurance and plates but he taught me to save for the things I wanted. This is now the approach to many of my purchases to this date!
