..your first car?
Nope. I already had my 1st job by the time I got a drivers' license. My mom just co-signed as a guarantor of the lease, but I never missed a payment so she never had to pay a cent towards my car, fuel or repairs. This taught me to save for what I want, take care of my big ticket items & manage a (tiny) budget.

...clothes, accessories, etc, while in college?
First three years, yes. In my last year I was working (had a decent paid internship), so I started paying for my own little things and spoiling my family now & then. Felt good.

...your way through college?
        >loans, food cost, etc?
Yes, in a way. My parents are both academics & in South Africa that means their kids go to college for free. They'd only have to pay if I failed my classes, so I still had mad pressure to focus and set a good example for my younger bro & sis.

...anything I haven't mentioned? Geek
- They paid for my medical cover / bills until I finished college. I had 4 impacted wisdom teeth removed when I turned 19 & that bill was more than my first car. I am so grateful to them for this.
- Haha, it was very late in my life that my mom stopped paying for my haircare. I actually think I started paying for my own haircare when I discovered forums.
- Cellphone. I've had one since highschool, which they paid for. My dad still sends me minutes now & then to guilt trip me for not calling often enough. LOL

My parents paid for clothes, food, hair appointments, copays etc. until I began to work. After that all bets were off. My mom started wanting me to pay her and I was very resentful of that.
 
My parents did not attempt to pay for anything regarding driving or driving lessons. My 29th bday was Friday, and will be paying 100 dollars driving lessons.
I'm hoping I will be able to get my license soon. ;/

They paid for my car/medical insurance and graduation cruise. I was on scholarship and worked my way through college so I didn't need much else.

* My mother.
 
Essentially, my mother put me through college (5 years in an over-priced school in NYC).  She paid my living expenses, in addition to food and misc. expenses for 4 years.
 
She used to pay for my clothes and hair, but now I do that on my own.

My parents never paid for anything in my life.

They could really care less.

Now that they are both disabled, the feeling is very mutual.
