So we all know a big part of Jimmy's character is him constantly begging M for a car. M says that he must earn his car himself.

 

Then it dawned on me, Tracey has an Issi. How does she have that? She doesn't work nor have a job (she is younger than Jimmy).

 

What's the story behind this?

Because she's spoiled. "Daddy's little princess", I'm sure you've heard of this before.

Not only that, but I can imagine it's cheaper to buy an Issi than a Beejay or whatever Jimmy's car was.

Even as a millionaire, Michael says "I don't have enough money to buy you a car"

 

Also, Tracey is a daddy's girl.

Tracy has an erotic webcam show, she earnt enough money to get herself a car.

Because she's spoiled. "Daddy's little princess", I'm sure you've heard of this before.

 

So I guess we can narrow down the possibilities to:

 

1) Michael bought her the car

2) She bought the car herself using money generated from webcam whoring

 

If it is the former, this is very bad parenting on Michael's part. Jimmy has to work and earn a car, but Tracey gets it handed to her? Parenting fail. 

 

If it is the latter, wouldn't Tracey be discovered? Wouldn't Amanda or Michael see the Issi in the driveway and say "hey Tracey where did you get the funds to buy that car?" and then Tracey and her webcam revenue would be exposed, which would f*ck things up for her.

 

Unless...M and Amanada are aware that Tracey is webcam whoring and are not doing anything about it. In which case it is another big parenting fail.

 

If anyone has any other ideas, share them here.

Not necessarily a parenting fail. If you have beaten the game or look through the house you will notice that Tracy was more of a school girl prior to the events of GTAV and it's even implied that she got accepted to college in one ending. In another ending, she is seen working on her laptop or talking on the phone about how she is more focused on school now instead of becoming "famous". Taking that into consideration she may have been given the car as a gift before she got out of control. Jimmy on the other hand, according to Michael, "has always had a sense of entitlement."  While Tracy is always out trying to find a way to become famous "Yacht party, Fame or Shame, etc.", Jimmy stays at home playing video games and smoking weed which pisses Michael off. Not to mention Jimmy steals the money from Michael while Tracy doesn't have a problem asking for it.

Jimmy is that son who no one ever wants to have, that's why Mike won't buy him a car.

Jimmy is probably the product of an affair Amanda had, there's more chance him being Dr. Friedlander's given the average pube per square inch on his head.

Like most people said in the first few posts. 

 

Twisters is right, an issi is proabably cheaper and all. I personally like tracey more than jimmy by the end of the game, but IMO Jimmy is more lazy than tracey, he only sits playing video games all time at the time of the storyline. Although he tries to lose weight when the main story has ended. He is still annoying as f*ck.

Michael wants Jimmy to lose weight by riding the bike, so Jimmy won't be getting a car any time soon! :p

Did everyone forget what happened in the mission "complications"? Michael did buy Jimmy a car but since Franklin stole it back and Michael assumed it was because of credit fraud. It's safe to say that Michael questioned Jimmy's judgement at that point. Either that or he didn't get a refund for that Beejay and he can't afford to buy another car.

Speaking of cars, isn't it a bit odd in "reuniting the family" Michael tells Jimmy he's broke and can't buy him a car despite the fact he's swimming in money?

I guess Michael probably doesn´t want to buy him another car because he screwed up with the first one by buying it from a scam artist(Simeon)who then stole it back.It´s also possible that he is punishing Jimmy by not getting him another car because Jimmy drugged him,stole his car and money and lost his boat,while Tracey is doing stuff that only affect her(shooting porn,going to reality shows...).Also,Jimmy sometimes takes Tracey´s Issi if it´s parked in the driveway,so there is no need for him to have his own car if both kids can share the same car.

This is very, very true for America in general...but I don't think it applies to this particular case. For reasons mentioned below

 

 

Did everyone forget what happened in the mission "complications"? Michael did buy Jimmy a car but since Franklin stole it back and Michael assumed it was because of credit fraud. It's safe to say that Michael questioned Jimmy's judgement at that point. Either that or he didn't get a refund for that Beejay and he can't afford to buy another car.

 

This is a good point I completely forgot about that. Maybe M was ready to get Jimmy a car, but Jimmy f*cked it up and lost his free-car privilege. So now, as discipline, M has proposed to Jimmy that if he wants his car he must earn it himself.

 

That seems fair enough. Both siblings had the same entitlement; a chance at a car, but Jimmy f--ed his up and Tracey didn't. Hence Jimmy must redeem himself the hard way, whereas Tracey can enjoy her car.

No, that's utter bullsh*t but, more importantly, these posts are completely unnecessary. I know a large part of the GTA fanbase think like this, but can we just stick to the topic at hand? It gets tiresome seeing this so often here and biting my tongue.

It's utter bullsh*t to folk who are uneducated on the issue. Also, I have no idea what you mean by "these posts" or "seeing this so often on here". I don't recall a lot of threads dealing with Jimmy's car situation.

 

But I'm not turning this thread into "talk about the social landscape of America". Which is why I briefly acknowledged fac316's post then went straight back into the Jimmy/Tracey car discussion.

 

If you feel that your feminist philosophy is not properly understood, kindly take that discussion into an external thread for it, or settle into PMs.

 

Jimmy doesn't go outside, why would he need a car?

 

This seems to be a recurring point in this thread, but I think people are missing something.

 

"You don't go to the beach, why do you need swimtrunks?" but it's actually "I don't go to the beach because I don't have any swimtrunks"

 

jimmy just sits on his ass all day.  he doesnt need a car.

 

It's not "Jimmy never goes outsde, why does he need a car?" it's "Jimmy doesn't go outside because he doesn't have a car"

 

I think Jimmy is constantly asking for a car because he has intention to do something with it.

Maybe the reason he sits on his ass all day is because he doesn't have the ability to transport himself at will, and can't be bothered to use the subway/bus.

 

People need to stop confusing "You don't need X because you never do Y" and understand that it could be "I never do Y because I do not have X, which is the means to do Y"

Because, in-lore, at the beginning of the game, Michael points out to Franklin  he can't pay back Madrazo out of his own pocket because he's 'in mortgage up to my eyeballs'. This implies their income is very fixed and the family spends roughly near to over what Michael earns/allows to be spent in a month. Plus, Tracey, despite being lacking in demur, does apply herself into doing things to become famous or make money. Jimmy sits around all day doing drugs, snacking, playing Righteous Slaughter or bumming off his buddies. I'd be disappointed in a son like that.

"These posts" = unsolicited remarks about how terrible women are casually dropped into threads about a f*cking unrelated video game. Not Jimmy's car situation. Clearly.

 

 

 

...Kindly take that discussion into an external thread for it, or settle into PMs.

 

 

This part is exactly my point. But kindly keeping that sh*t outta here needs to work both ways--nobody will have an excuse to derail threads* with their manhood-compromising, tumbler-miseducated, sjw PC feminism propaganda if others could refrain from making their totally nuanced and well-informed commentary on the systemic marginalization of males on a GTA forum in the first place. I know, it's a crazy suggestion me and my irrational manpussy are making, but it's worth a shot.

 

*oh lawd the irony of this post, rite?

Jimmy probably hasn't even done a driving test, the majority of his time is spent staring at a screen in a dark room.
