Put that 10k down as a down payment, made monthly payments and paid off the car with the severance. I feel as if i got this car for free...
Only thing I paid for out of my pockets is the mods.. lol..
I feel lucky.
Dag you would waste all that money on a car.....I had friends circa 2008 who due to the economy were asked to delay their start after getting a firm job offer, and we're talking 140 starting salary, so they got 70 to not show up for a year. Most of those people saved every penny and tried to find other work to supplement....I can get the notion of a free car with say a great stock trade, or flipping a property, but not so much from wages. That's not free, that's hard-earned.
