Assuming this thread is legit, even though I grew up in the Motorcity, and cars were everything in my family (Dad worked in the auto industry), my parents still made me earn my car myself. I had to buy my first car myself, finance it myself, etc. That went for all my cars since.
I think it helped me appreciate my cars more than if they were just handed to me. That's how it'll be for my kids. If they want a car, they'll have to work for it. No hand-me-downs.
