I really enjoy making these so I decided to come up with a more complex scenario.

In a nutshell, this.

Here it is: You are a wealthy man of the world and money is no object. However, money has not bought good parenting in your case. Your impotent little brat of a son has already crashed his first two cars: all brand new BMW M cars. You have always given him exactly what he wanted and more, but it is time to crack down. You have secured a job for him that requires a commute, so it is time to get him some wheels again.

Here’s the thing. This car has to teach him a lesson.

What I chose was a cheap small truck. In this case, a 1999 Ford Ranger that looks pretty good for 250,000 miles. This is not a cool car. This is not a fast car. This is a practical car. And with that many miles things will break, and he will have to fix them himself.

What would you do? The one weakness with my plan is this son is clearly a terrible driver and the Ranger is not known for its safety features. The manual might teach him a little about the art though.

Oh and you can use any online website you like for listings.
