Welcome! I joined the forum when I was about your age. For reference, I graduated high school in 2014. I've come a long way since first joining but there is certainly a lot to learn around here. Just read through everything and soon you'll be an ecomodding expert.

Definitely post of some pictures of your cobalt. You're lucky to have such a nice and relatively new car at your age. Sucks you live up North where they use all that road salt. I grew up in Cleveland and since moving, I definitely don't miss all the rotten cars. Be sure to be cognizant of the rust before you drill any holes in the body for any modifications.

Unsolicited life advice that I feel obligated to give:

Congrats on the internship at Ford. That's quite an accomplishment for someone in high school. If you're interested in college, make sure to go to school with a good FSAE program. Lots of schools have them these days but some are better than others. Beyond undergrad, I know Clemson also has a great graduate automotive engineering program.
