    I am proud. It was only seven hundred dollars but I am very proud. It was my money that I saved up myself long and hard! I had saved up about thirteen hundred dollars-enough to get the vehicle, pay for tax, title, and registration, get stickers, insurance, AAA roadside...

    That Time Again

    I bought my first car when I was just out of college. I bought a Mustang, and while I love the car I did not love the car buying experience. The whole high pressure thing, and wondering if I paid too much and all. It was not fun. But that was 10 years ago. The Mustang has...

    I have bought several new cars, but the current additions are the denali xl for the growing family and the new vw rabbit. That little VW is an amazing little car for the money. My wife has always hated vw's, but even she loves it. Heck, she is out in it right now.

    I Have Bought A Car

    I have bought a car a used valiant a while back  it cost me over $300  not counting the paint job.  It turned out to be leaking oil too much and there was no way to fix it.  So it sat idle in my Grandmothers yard   and their neighbors started stealing parts from it.

    I Love My Jeep

    I'm still paying on my Jeep, but I did get the car I wanted! I love jeeps, and it is a far cry better than driving the Camry I used to drive. I hate low cars because they are hard to get into when you have long legs. My dad wants me to sell her and get a 4 door car, with a...
