How can I convince my parents to start letting me buy cars from random people off Craigslist? What is the car you drive and all the ones you’ve owned?

I’m thinking of buying these two right here.

This one has a broken timing chain. But those are very easy to replace. I love the sporty trims and can’t beat the price!

Otherwise I really like classic cars and I’d like to get this one as well!

My parents just won’t let me shop on Craigslist. They have no interest in doing it themselves and they think its unsafe to do these things and that I might get scammed.

I really want to bring some excitement to my life though.

But my Dad told me to learn to appreciate what I have when I talked to him about it this morning.

I was just telling him about how I saw an add just posted there yesterday evening of an 03 Toyota Tacoma mint conditioned, garaged, low miles, runs and drives for only $1200 that somebody was selling.

But by the time I checked again for it this morning it was already sold! Its the same truck I already own aside from the fact that it was a four door automatic and the frame was far less rusted.

Even though that truck was better I still didn’t plan on getting rid of my own. I even told him that. Because I know he worked really hard on registering my car.

I had no intention of getting rid of a Birthday gift my Grandpa gave me. After all the truck was first driven by its original owner on my exact birthdate! The sentimental value is irreplaceable!

But the thing is I do appreciate what I have. Contrary to what my Dad says. I’m not some spoiled kid that wants luxury, I’m just someone that gets excited over good deals!

I am very greatful for the truck I own but I just want to be able to experience new things and enjoy them as well.

Is there anybody who can help me with my situation? I don’t own my own home yet because I’m only 19. They don’t want more cars in our driveway.
