20V tq as first car?

Amen on that!  My first car was a '80 prelude which was promptly totalled by
a "friend."  I guess kind of a mixed blessing as I then went to my 83 GTI
which I'd say helped me land squarely right here.

I wasn't the worst driver, but there where a couple of crumpled fenders and
bumpers in my history.  Never involved another car, and could always drive
away.  Who knows what would have happened with the equivalent of 20v back

IMHO, it's a stupid waste of a nice car.

A novice driver should learn how to drive in something that's safe,
but also something without too much power. It's very difficult to learn
how to drive well if you've got a really powerful car.

If I were of the age to have a 16-yr. old son/daughter learning how to
drive, he/she would get something more along the lines of a VW Passat
16v ('90-93),
Audi 100 quattro (C4 chassis), maybe an A3 chassis VW Golf 2.0. No Mercs
or BMWs
because RWD is much less forgiving in low-traction situations, no Volvos
they very rarely have manual transmissions.
