    your 16 and your gonna get a 350z?
    lets put it this way…

    i drive a 98 honda prelude. i was added on insurance when i was 17 and for liability only, my parents insurance went up $600ish a year. for full coverage their insurance increased almost $1,000. On a 350z, at the age of 16, just know its probably going to be upwards of $800 a year on top of your parents existing insurance. (and that may be liability only)

    also, if your car is salvaged title, most car insurance companies wont do more than liability coverage. This means that in the event that you hit someone else, your insurance pays for the damage to the car you hit, but you pay for the damage you did to your own car because that isn’t covered for a salvaged.

    In CA, registering an auto with a salvaged title is a pain in the arss. You will need to have it weighed, smogged, inspected and the money it will cost will depend on the purpose of the salvaged title.

    Insurance on the vehicle if you go on your parents insurance will run you about $180-600 depending on your parents length of time with insurance and if they have home owners policy etc…

    What city are you in? If you are in the EAST BAY/Northern Cal. I can give you a few names to call.

    Very expensive for someone like you with no driving experience.
