HELL YES! As of March 2013 I'm the very proud free and clear owner of my 2002 Subaru Outback. I'm pretty excited because this month marks the last payment required on my loan that I used to buy this fabulous piece of automobile. It is also the first car I've ever purchased and owned my own. Before I purchased my Subaru back in 2006 I had operated a long line of hand me downs from my super awesome parents.

But no more, today I am the sole owner of a car! Now all I need to do is start saving some money so I can afford to repair all the cosmetic damage the poor girl has been through in the last several years.

How old were you when you bought your first car? Did you finance it or buy it for cash?

Tell me your story in the comments, I'd love to hear them!
