Kid doesn't know how good he's got it; in my case, my folks wanted to give me a Ford Pinto, which I drove for exactly as long as it took (and no longer) for me to find the Saab that I wanted. (in that case, a '71 Sonett III). Kids will do dumb things in cars, it's unavoidable. If this car is available, *and* it was designed with safety as a primary goal (rather than as a secondary or lower goal), seems like the best car for him. I'd say it'd be the best car for him even if they didn't have an extra availalable, but I'd be accused of being a fanatic ;) Dave Hinz
