Am I doing the right thing?

I am 53. I never considered myself a father before, I have wanted my kids gone for 15 years. They've been in online school for 11 years they're 17 and 18. I have never gotten them a learners permit, license or a car. I refuse to teach them to drive. My parents taught me when I was 16. I just don't believe I should have to do the same for my son and daughter. Since I don't like them at all and don't care for their safety and welbeing. In your opinion would it be ok if I bought them a $100 or $200 dollar used junky car that has problems on Craigslist so they constantly have to worry if they motor will go wrong while they're driving on the interstate(we live on an interstate) with other cars? I am not willing to get them anything safe. And if I got them $200 car I am not teaching them how to use it or get them a license or insurance, I do not care of they get hurt or fined, it is not my problem. Should I do that, since these spolied rotten entitled kids REFUSE to walk in the street behind cars with cars as there are no walk areas on the interstate/highway? What would you do? My other idea, which I have been really wanting to do, take my son and daughter somewhere an hour away to the city, and leave them with nothing.

Heh.. y'know my dear old dad told me when I was young if you want a car you can have one. Go out get a God d@#$ed job and buy one! And he said if you're living under my roof it's gonna be insured and you're going to pay for that too. So I bought a clunky old Corvair for $100 and worked as a dishwasher. Yeah I know I'm old school

These lazy brats refuse to get a job though. We live on an interstate/highway and the lazy brats refuse to walk with cars as they're no areas for walkers to walk. You have to use that to go into town it is the only way from where we live. I don't know what to do with them.

Wow do you really not like your son or daughter at all?

Yeah come to think of it a $100 or $200 clunker would probably suffice for short distances it did for me. They have online resources so I'm sure through YouTube videos they could figure out how to do repairs etc.
