I personally think I got a great deal on that car


Just kidding, IF I had 4 million, it would not be spent on a car that someone else built. But I would have one #e!! of a shop in middle of nowhereville NC

REALLY!

But then I can't even grasp what people spend on their daily drivers. I had a BMW Z3 (As I remember that's what it was, a little sports car) in the shop once and the guys lease agreement was laying there on the seat like he was proud of it, $500 a month! FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS A MONTH for the "privilege" to drive this car? HUH? PLUS the insurance, I am sorry, I can't imagine the kind of money I would have to make to justify that kind of money for a car to drive, I don't care how "cool" the car is.

lease's are tax wright off's, if you have a business, ( which every one should) so is maintenence agreements, insurance, etc. too bad hobbies are considered a health benifit, which I think they are.

I understand that but it is STILL money that you aren't taking home. And I know a LOT of people who don't have a business and spend gobs on their daily drivers. The real funny ones are the ones who commute an hour and a half to get to work (no really, I have a guy I work with who does this) and his "new" car is now a couple years old and just about worn out, I don't get it, I just don't get it.

We are simply a wasteful society that doesn't appreciate what we have, we MUST HAVE more.

His living room may be bigger but yours is going to be better decorated.

Until just last month, my spouse commuted 100 miles one way to work.
Yep--she has in the last 8 years worn out a few cars.
She works for the state and it took over 5 years for her to get transfered to a facility much closer to home (now about 25 miles).

Me---about 30 miles to my office---when I go there. More often than not, my Monday am commute takes me to the airport--and Friday brings me back home.

I don't consider myself wasteful in this catagory at all.
I bougth my home out in the boonies for the size and price (needed to keep the teen girls separated in their own rooms) and a home in town was waaay out of my price range.

I drive older cars/trucks and supply her with a different low mile car every 3 years----over the last 12 months she has put over 50,000 on her Crown Vic.
With her working much closer to home now, I hope that will drop to around
25k a year--------NOT out of line for Texas residents.

I understand we all make our choices for our own reasons. All I know is this guy at work passes a LOT of body shops to get to this one!
