I don't do car payments anymore. Only did once, and the truck made a ton of money.
IMO For personal, they don't make sense.

I'm a contractor and out of my 5 vehicles, I drive my 87 Honda CRX the most. I paid $1200 for it almost three years ago.

No ride I own is worth more than $6000.

I payed cash for them all.

This is my sixth vehicle and the first one I've had a loan for. I don't want to do that again.

Same Here!

Hey-hi Jawa01,

We're in the same situation, except that our finances are much tighter. We have a plan which is our forward push.

It's hard not to 'jump', but my point is to not attempt it until we are more in line with reality--eh!?? Cause, you know, haven't planted that money tree yet; neighbors!?? lol!

We found an 88' Winnebago; 67k, parked in a garage for 10 years. The owners want 5,500. It's a great deal and a good start; but it's not a bus and it's not a Crown!

The real truth, we're just not ready. Besides, I don't want a problem, I want a home--eh? I, actually, want to save and plan for an adventure or what's the point??

When the time is right, the right bus will appear! Advise for us both
Plus, as I have so many grand (not quite grandioso) plans, that it will give us time to realize that my plans are best--teehee!

Hang in there,

Anndru & Chuck

The search continues. Anyone in the market for a Chrysler 300 let me know.

Any chance you have a pic with the hood up & the doors open??
