Reminds me of my youth, when I was 16 I bought a like new a '69 Camaro from a neighbor that was getting a divorce. I had earned every penny that went into paying for it, and trust me, I truly appreciated what I had. I kept that car until my wife talked me into trading it for a car with automatic transmission, air, power windows, etc. I have regretted that sale since the day I did it.
Enjoy your ride, and give thanks daily for a step-dad and mother like you have!
