I own my car and I'm glad I finally do. I don't want a new car anytime soon and definitely don't want the payments.
actually my dad own it :D
Try and find something from the late sixties, or early seventies. Parts are easy to find and relatively cheap compared to a newer car. I own my El Camino!
The way the gas and bills cost, it owns me (well technically my parents who pay for it)
I have paid for beaters. They do the job, my wife has hinted that she wants a new car but when I ask what she's willing to give up to pay for it she seems a little more content with her ancient VW.
