Old clunkers, in good shape.. Mine is an 88 Fs diesel Blazer, full of Bondo fof the rust Thei Princess drives a 93 Jeep Cherokee which is in very nice shape. I'd rather spend my money on the house and guns instead of cars that lose value daily. Ops

'94 Chevy S10 Blazer 4x4, 4dr with 98k on the odometer, I counted it as "older". I just spent all yesterday (holiday) figuring out wtf was up with the 4x4 system and why it didnt engage on my last trip to the range.

Did you ever consider some folks just LIKE a sports car or NEED an SUV?

My newest car is six years old. Daily drivers are a lousy place to put money. Now my mustang on the other hand....

86 Dodge Ram p/u with 144,000
87 Mitsu Montero 4x4
79 Jeep Wagoneer being rebuilt for when society collapses; I can roam the desert highways in search of the juice

The two daily drivers above cost me about 500.00 a year to run including registration and insurance. I would also drive them anywhere. The Montero has been all over the southwest; through snow, blazing desert, rain, small rivers, navigating through mtn trails, etc.

My wife drives a newer car.

i'd rather invest my money in houses, guns and the market.

Been saving 300-500 a month for the last 15 years.

I almost bought a Toyo Tacoma 4x4 recently. That'll probably be my next car.

'99 Honda CRV with 98,000 mi. bought used 3 years ago with 30,00 on it, and recently a '02 Jeep Liberty with 24,253 mi. to replace '96 Jeep Cherokee that had 150,000 miles and needed work, cost of which exceeded it's worth, got more for it on trade. I plan on keeping the Liberty until it too is worn out.... So far, I like the Liberty, much better ride than the older Cherokee....

Ya know, that attitude is getting really old. For many people their car is a toy, the same way that for many people a firearm does double duty as self-defense and a "toy".

There's also people out there that can easily afford to walk into a dealership and plop down their $80k on the barrel head and say "I'll take the red one". Is that me? no. Is that you? I have no idea. But remember that money is relative.

If we all went through life not owning a single nice thing, with everything just being utilitarian and a tool, life would be pretty goddamn boring.

Cars, no vehicles are my passion. I like a nice car or truck, and I don't mind spending my money on them. So maney cars, so little time!

Paid for ones.

If I can't pay for it one the one payment plan, it's not for me.

I buy new ones and then run them forever.
Both of them are old ones now.
In a couple of years I'll buy a new one. Maybe sell off both of the existing ones and just have one for awhile.

I love the late 80's, current car is a '88 Lincoln Town Car, last one was an '89 Cadillac Brougham and before that an '88 Chevy Celebrity. They all kinda look similar and are the same color, weird.
