I like vehicles that are very good at their intended purpose. The 392 fits right in! Not always practical but all fun in their own way.
I've purchased cars all three ways - lease, finance and cash. You are correct about depreciation costing less when you buy outright but my experience has been that doing so also makes it more likely I trade in earlier (which is also costly - not just money wise but also wife credits wise). You can pay off a loan or lease but that extra hurdle often makes me keep the car a little longer. YMMV of course.Cars are generally a depreciating asset. Being smart about resale values goes a very long way though. I always tell my wife “the cost is not the price of the car. It’s how much it depreciates while you own it.” I’ve had some very nice cars that all “cost” less than my wife’s kid hauler SUVs. That logic falls apart a little if you finance though. Unless you get a very good rate. The beauty of Wranglers of all types is the depreciation is very low.
Totally agree...If I don't use my money to buy fun cars, my wife will just waste it on the house and yard!Great photos! I love cars. Most people believe cars are a bad investment. From a financial perspective, they generally are, but from a happiness perspective, they are some of the best investments money can buy.
It’s one reason I work hard. I would like to have at least 6-7 vehicles at any given time in the future. So many cool and different types. Thanks again for sharing everyone.
Nah not being a pest, all good! Yes it is, and yes they are. If you make it down there hit up Boondocks or Fat Daddyz for lunch or a post ride beverage. Both are fun places to stop.Gotcha, thanks for the info. Where are the cliffs? Is that a park of some sort, and are people still allowed to run SxS's there? Sorry for being a pest, I'm still pretty new to the area so I have no clue where anything is.
Awesome, thank you sir! And thanks for the suggestions & the link!
