    Cars. Love 'em. But we're cheap. I read all the mags, think about getting this or getting that, but at the end of the day we're car cheapies. We have friends with car payments that aren't far behind our mortgage. We're car cheapies. It we can't cash it out or get 0% we don't get it. We're normal folks, pretty good combined income, and we certainly aren't shy about $$$ elsewhere, but we just won't pull the trigger. I will say though that Terri has started eyeing a C-series Benz.

    2010 Subaru Forester.

    No I'm not a lesbian or grandparent from Vermont. Huge Subaru fan for ages now and always have at least one in the driveway. This one is still just getting broken in with 90,000km on it. Kids are out of car seats but we still have a Bullmastiff so the truck stays for now even though my wife thinks paid off means it's time for a new ride. Still want an STi but my insurance and potential speeding ticket costs have put that dream off for the time being.

    Can't find a shot of the truck so you get one of the dog that occupies the hatch.

    I know. About as likely as that hot 20 something yr old in a micro dress hitting on me in Vegas being a friendly woman looking for a hookup and not a hooker.

    there's so many cars around this place, it's been driving me nuts for a while.

    I don't know why 4 people need 7 vehicles most of which are never driven?

    they say they're going to sell some, but then they just sit there month after month.

    Great minds think alike!

    I'm (un)lucky enough to not yet be married or have kids, so with the extra savings I get to spend on what I want...

    My daily driver is a Porsche Macan, I have one BMW (got rid of the other two months ago), but still have my baby who is hibernating, awaiting springtime.

    I have a infiniti G sedan for my 140 round trip commute. We also have a Subaru Outback. Subaru drives pretty good.

    You're best bet is to do a swap a lease near the end of a term and then buy it off lease (worked for MB Finance back in the day) or buy it from someone you know leased it at end of term (check price tho bc most states require them to buy and then sell so double tax)

    I recently picked up a Ford Explorer Sport (traded a GMC Yukon SLT2), the wife drives a Jaguar XF (traded my BMW 335i for it :cry: - I loved that car!).

    2010 F150 FX4

    Dark gray with black leather. I just hit 60k miles and it is paid off. I will not get rid of that truck. I love it. Although some inconsiderate prick backed into my front bumper so it had to go into the shop tomorrow.

    So nice not having a car payment for the first time in a long time. Although when I had it at the shop the other day I walked the lot and found a 2016 that I really liked. I wouldn't trade my '10 in so this would be an outright buy but I'd prefer to not spend $65k on a truck.

    I'm a Ford guy. I've had a shit ton of Mustangs and I've got the itch again. I've been looking for an 03-04 Cobra. I may need to enlist Packer to help me out because I'm extremely picky and want one that has been babied.
