When our kids were old enough to drive I helped them learn to drive and then purchased an older running car for them to drive themselves. One that served two of them was an early seventies Buick Apollo. Basically the same thing as a Chevy Nova. Had a 265 v8 in it. They were responsible for keeping the car in good running order. Oil changes, tuneups, etc. This served several purposes. I didnít have to be a taxi service, they got a little independence and also the responsibility of driving and maintaining a vehicle. There were some bumps in the road, so to speak. A couple breakdowns, a couple minor accidents, one or two traffic violations but all in all a good experience for them.
