Oh b u l l s h i t you whiner. You're not walking or even riding a bike. If you want a better car, buy it yourself ya ungrateful p.o.s. Thing is, you can't afford one, so suck it up and at least learn to fix the damned thing. If your old man at least sees you trying to take care of it (I mean REALLY take care of it) he might change his mind, but as long as you don't so much as even wash it, clean the interior, check tire pressure and fluids often, do a tune-up or pay for the insurance, you don't deserve better.
