What would be a good first car for a tall 16 year old
A full size car if your really tall, something domestic like say a Crown Victoria or even a full size pickup.
I'm 6'5 and I have always driven Celicas or Camrys.
Reelin you ever go noodlin'?
No. No cats that big in Vermont. I wouldn't dare do that anyhow. Would be afraid that I might pull back a stump. You never know what's in those holes. Do a lot of spear fishing for Pike at night in a small boat with spot lights. One of the guys brings a bow once in a while.
I'd agree with the full sized pick up. They have plenty of head room, you can get a V6 so the insurance company won't bang you too hard, and you can get some cool accessories to make it sporty. HTH. -Jim
A cheap Toyota that's not newish. Cheap/easy to fix, good MPG, etc.
