Haha, yeah, I just turned 40, my oldest turns 16 next week, and I still feel 18 too! I wonder if that feeling ever subsides.

Everyone is providing great feedback here.

I had a 1997 Honda Accord EX-L I purchased new way back when I was in school. I kept that car for years and could have given it to my oldest, but I sold it to my brother for $1 a few years ago for his oldest! If it wasn't sold to help him out, I'd be kicking myself now.

So we don't have a car ready to hand down at this point except perhaps my wife's Odyssey, which needs to be changed out, but I don't think that's a good vehicle for a teenager.

Right now we're leaning towards finding a used Civic or Accord. I really loved that old Accord I used to have.
