Trust me, you do not want black. You say you will clean it every day, but in reality, with a teenage schedule, it doesn't happen. If you don't clean it the exact right way, then you will get strange swirls and scratches and it looks horrible to you, even if others can't see the imperfections like you can. I own a black car, I gave up on keeping it spotless, it just doesn't happen. Go with white, I had a white truck and that looked near spotless unless you got reeeeeal close.

My options are between red or blue. Probably blue since red fades faster than any other color. But the red looks amazing, and I have yet to see a good rendering of blue. I'll keep that decision on hold, I have everything else figured.

My father bought a new 06 loaded Aveo LT for my sons High School graduation, he insures and pays for everything. Its insured with Allstate, and he has no tickets. In this area ins for young men is BAD.

For those of you "older" fellows that are complaining about the whole "mommy and Daddy" thing you should take a look at yourself, because the ones that are really acting like "kids" right now are you guys for complaining about stupid things that really aren't your bussiness.
Congrats! Its your personal business. Other people are just jealous.

Do great in college, get a great job, save $$$, buy a house with a garage, and you will have NO car payments, then you can save $$$ AND have a house and new car, not many people can do that.

Your right yeah im 16 to and my dad owned a 92 Z/28 and i fell in love with it and thought he was crazy for selling it (of course i only saw it in picture) my parents want me to buy a truck but instead i bought the 1999 red camaro rs i have now becuase i think they are unique and have the looks,curves, and power of a sports car even tho mines a v6 -_- and I hope my parents can understand the passion i have for this car, and the only way i can get this car is if i sell my camaro and my sandrail which combined will get my at 15,000 and if i want to get a base v6 for..lets say about 22K thats only 6,000 and i have a part time job so i might have 1k or 2k more, when my parents helped me with my camaro they gave me 3k, so lets say by march of 2009 i have 17000, they will only help me with 4k thats not being spoiled at all thats just 1k morehan they gave me for my 1999 camaro, and i really love my sandrail i ride almost every weekend with my buddies from high school, so selling it won't feel like im just getting rid of some useless crap i just have laying around.

I might just settle for Cyber Gray Metallic instead.
I drive a dark green car right now, and its bad enough. My old camaro was black and beautiful, when clean, which is rare if its a daily driver. Plus i live in indiana, lol, it snows. Cyber Gray Metallic it is most likely.
