Im 16 now and have to make the choice between bike or car. It would either be the 05 GH Dh-i or a 1969 Corvette. The Vette would need some restoring but when i finish it, it will be about the same price as the GT...im stuck

Whats more important. If you have a job that is like 20 miles away get the car and save up for the bike. If you can ride your new bike to the job get the bike. If you dont even have a job get the bike because gas is prices are going up.

Oh mygoodness.... decisions decisions. What if you got the Vette and then got a hardtail too? Might slow down restoration of the vette a bit but would allow you to do both. You could probably easily get a used hardtail/dh bike for under $1k that's setup pretty sweet and then get the car. That's what I'd do. :D

A Used hadtail which isn't crap would be good, that way incase you don't have a bike you can have one for the mean time and have a vette

with chicks you can atleast burn more engergy and you wouldn't need any vissual or videos. Also if the vette is a one in a 100 thing and if the GTi you can get any time i would get the vette.
And considering most people get new dh bikes every year or two he coudl always get another one after he got some cash. Whereas the Vette is a lot more rare and one of those things that you'd probably keep for a lot longer especially if its a Vette of that calibre. :D

redbull: who the fvck cares
redbull: you have a hand
redbull: use it!
My vote is find a decent older car (Nova or the like), you can haul more, parts and insurance will be cheaper and you won't be quite the cop magnet. Or don't get a car at all - mtbrs w/o cars are usually better riders...
Oh, and you're going to have to put a lot of $$ into the Vette to beat a 550hp civic (if those hp #'s aren't complete BS) anyway.

i'd probably get the bike. the car is going to cost you more in the long run

get a car later, they really suck up your cash (insurance, gas, repairs, general maintenance, etc....)

and yeah bikes cost $ too, but presumably less than the cost of maintaining a car

im a speed freak too and the civic numbers aren't made up, we tested it in auto shop. Im just thinking that the vette will be something i can have for the rest of my life and give to my kids depending on how it still runs as a bike will only last me a few years
