Default Job Recommendations

Im 15 years old, a sophomore in high school, and live in New York. I really need to start thinking about my future and career. There are just so many jobs out there, and I want your recommendations as to what I should do for the rest of my life.
I really want to be a police officer, but here in NY they get paid VERY poorly. Im a people person and am good with electronics. I work very well with computers and cell phones. Friends actually come to me for help.
Im also very good in the Car Audio field. Im decent at fabrication (basic fiber glassing and making wood panels). With actual training, I have no doubt that ill "master" it. I can also install pretty much any electrical car component (LEDs, switches, sound processor, carputer, headunit, amps, speakers, relays, etc) by using solder and heat shrink tubing. Youll see that in my build next year.
I enjoy Math and Physics. Im also creative and artistic. I dont mind doing a hands on job; i just dont want to do any manual labor.

Now, for some things im not to well at. I havent enjoyed any history classes. My yearly averages are usually about 85% though in history though. Im pretty quiet, but can get loud if I need to. I work at a summer camp in the summers, and my friends get surprised by how loud I get.

I want a good paying job because I dont want to worry about my bank account and want to do a big build (~$20,000) in a luxury car (lets say $50,000) by the time I'm 45 years old (I know there are many variables). I want to enjoy my job too. As for hours- I dont mind working 7 days a week.
What do you guys recommend for me?

By the time you're 45, you won't care about doing a big build anymore.

Edit: I'm not going to give recommendations because frankly that's something you need to come up with on your own.

You're 15. If your thinking about a career. Don't. Enjoy your youth. More than likely if you try to chose a career now you will just change once you get to college.

PS asking people on a forum to recommend a career not the best idea. We don't know you well enough to do correctly help you

Looks like Mr. Crews and Cascade haven't offered much help...

So, from the little bit you shared about yourself, I'd say look into an engineering school. You are good at math and seem to pick up on electronics quickly. Maybe look into becoming an Electrical Engineer! They get paid very well!

Yeah, that makes sense. I just want to have some sort of idea though.

You make a good point here, but thats why I wrote my interests, dislikes, strong points, and weak areas
