I care for my car very much, and am extremely thankful for it. I'm not going to act like I don't speed, but I respect the power the car has. Never have I street raced or "tested the limits" - I'm not stupid.

Don't generalize all teenagers to be disrespectful and unthankful for what they're given, because many of us aren't.

Im 19 and I have a 1970 Camaro running a 600+ HP big block. My DD is a 93 Chevy with a late 80s Corvette motor so it's no slouch either. I consider myself to be a good driver, so far no wrecks or tickets. When i do get to driving my Camaro, you can bet I'm gonna be safe because 1) It's really nice and the last thing i want to do is hit someone and 2) There's no need to drive like an idiot. I notice a lot of the more sketchy drivers are the guys at my college with the late 90's early '00s Mustangs.
In my opinion, it's more the kid than the car as many people have already said.

Felt like sharing my input because of my age and the fact that I have a wicked Camaro.
my 1970 Camaro RS. Frame off restoration. 600 HP 454 Naturally Aspirated. GM Performance Heads, Comp Mechanical cam, Weiand Stealth Intake, Holley 750 Carb. Hooker and Flowmaster exhaust system. Victory Red paint, True Rally Sport.
