I had a car once that was so bad a highway patrolman gave me a ticket for being a hazard to the public! Oh the stories I could tell about that one like the time I got in and had 3" of snow in the back seat! Darn that was a cold ride home.

Im not very vain when it comes to automobiles, only a few things I care about. Its really positive if the thing is payed for, I like a roof, The motor needs to run and the wheels should turn if I put it in gear, its good if they also stop turning when I hit the brakes and heat is a good thing to have this time of year in Upstate NY. Other than that, My expectations are very low.

I have decided I will never ever pay a mortgage payment again on something I generally dont live in so the only new car I will own hence forth is one that fits in my pocket, a hot wheels toy. My current fleet of junkers total about 70 years of age between the three of them and my PU Truck has holes bigger than baseballs in it that Ive repaired with closed cell Spray Foam that seems to be holding up rather well.

How true that is ! I've seen houses cheaper than most new vehicles !

I've only ever had one new vehicle in my life . Would like to get my hands on a Jeep . Used , affordable and in good shape . I still have that brand new vehicle ,
A Siverado I bought ten years ago . It is getting tired but has been very good to me .

Those cars I posted are only a fantasy . If I had tons of money to burn , I would have something in my garage ! Route 36 , miles and miles of well maintained two lane , winding hills , just gets my juices flowing . Would love to cruise that in something sexy !

I'm guessing you're not buying a new hellcat charger?

Personally, I like a new car once in awhile... had intended to get one this fall, but going to hold off at least a year. Kind of nice not having mortgage size car payments. Although the wife is driving a new plug in hybrid that we got a smoking hot lease deal on.

Unfortunately New doesnt stay new in Upstate NY very long with rough roads, snow, salt, more salt all chucked together in a big ice/ mud ball for 5 months ruins stuff before the payments are even gone. I really dont have a garage to keep Cars in, just a barn that isnt that handy across the road.

Less than prosperous Times havent left extra car payments in our budget and home Renovations at the same time (99% DIY). Ive got to invest in our home at my age, besides vehicles have never returned me anything but the bare necessities of mobility and rusty parts.

My 2002 Dodge Dakota was so perty when I drove it off the lot brandy new. It wasnt a high end truck but expensive enough for me, it was shiny and didnt have a scratch on it, I kept it so nice! Within 4 years, I had been hit twice and smashed bad both times, after that, it never seemed new again even though the payments were still happening. I wasnt all that easy on it I bought a 4WD Truck to use it moving stuff, pulling a trailer, I didnt beat it but it got its share of dings cause I made it work. Its nasty smells like cigs, dirty filled with tools, parts and other detritus but it runs pretty fair so run it I will until it croaks. Its only got 125K on it, Im shooting for 165!
