The new vehicle thing is because there are a lot of stuff figure jobs now. I'm just outside of Nashville and even a medium size plant supervisor can make $150k here as a base.

Then you've got your 84 month people.

My 15 GT was 40k out the door TT&L can't wait till we pay that last payment. We are keeping that bastard until the doors fall off, then getting new doors. First and only new car I've ever purchased. It was fun being the only 15 GT at the car meets for a few months and having crowds gather to look at it. Yesterday I went to CVS and when I came out there where two more parked next to me. lol
I figure in 30 years it will be cool to say I have a fist year one owner car. Until then I'll just be another asshole in a cookie cutter car. But I'll be damned if I'm going to ever drop that much money on a car again.

That's pretty much me with my Camaro SS. Only difference is that I had the last one before the 19 facelift.

I guess I'm a glutton for punishment. I bought the first BMW X4 in Sacramento, then bought the '17 GT new, and have been daydreaming lately about what to replace them both with.

I will say that at this point leasing is starting to make a whole bunch more sense, if I can keep myself from modding the new rides. I have zero emotional attachment to either vehicle.

These new vehicle prices are insane, which I guess is a blessing in disguise cause that's probably what's keeping me from buying another. When I got my 15 denali, I worked them down to 38k but I at least felt like I got more sheet metal for my $.

I couldn't fathom the idea of getting a new, loaded out truck nowadays.

I wouldn't mind a new ranger but think a year or two from now the used ones wouldn't be bad.

^^ this

These days I'd rather drive a paid-for high mileage beater and spend that money on other things. I shelled out about $32k for a new F150 4x4 in 2004, and while that truck was very, very nice - that's the last time I'll ever do that

I bought another Ram as a beater, because I really liked my other one, wanted to keep it a while, and needed to stop driving it daily to keep the miles off. Maybe put more lift on it since I donít daily it anymore, etc.

The beater is working out so well, Iím really tempted to sell the 4x4. It just sits.
