The adolescent years are full of all kinds of exciting milestones. Your first kiss, your first job, and, of course, getting your drivers permit and hitting the road.
What was your teenage dream car?
Jay Leno wished for a 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB4 as a kid and bought one as an adult.1 Justin Bieber didn't have to wait - he was zipping around in a Lamborghini at the age of sixteen. The perks of wealth!
We have a lot of customers who have weighed in on the issue, and we've gotten into more than a few animated discussions about whose teenage dream vehicle would have been more fun in which situation.
Iconic Movie Cars
Some say their choice was influenced by a popular movie of their youth. From the '55 Chevy Harrison Ford drove in American Graffiti, the 1970 Dodge Charger in The Fast and the Furious, to the '81 Porsche 928 in Risky Business. And who can forget the 1967 Shelby Mustang GT500 from Gone in Sixty Seconds?
Most Falconer teens didn’t get to pick what car they got to drive. And some youth didn't even get to drive Dad's old beater.
Did you picture ourselves a sleek Lamborghini? A lifted Chevy 4x4 all ready to tear it up off-road? A tricked-out muscle car? Come on in and give us your best argument, or write your thoughts in the comments below. We can't wait to hear what you have to say about it.
