In Debt Up to My Eyeballs

So, re-reading the OP, I was not aware motor vehicles can be financed as long as a house. I know RV's, can, but never knew trucks or cars could be. I would agree, that's insane.

But, financing a new truck for a standard period of time, along the lines of 3-5 years is way different.

It would be great if everyone could afford to pay cash like the OP, but let's face it, the number of folks who can actually do that are way way small. I'll never begrudge someone from financing a "toy" or a new vehicle if that's what they choose to do with their money. If they feel comfortable doing it, like JAC1982 does than I pat them on the back.

Just because one finances something doesn't mean they are irresponsible.

A $60K Corvette is what Geezers drive around in while dreaming they are still capable of picking up the 18 yr old girls walking down the sidewalk. It sort of looks like a Corvette, but runs like a Chevette. A true Corvette is more like $150K.
What new Corvette costs $150K?

The very first 2019 Corvette ZR1 manufactured VIN 001 went for $925,000 at Barrett-Jackson auction.

Well you have to work at it a little. ZR1 Convertible, 3ZR, Sebring Package, and a few other trinkets. One thing about the Vette, they offer lotsa trinkets.

F350, diesel, 4X4, crew cab, long bed, dually are safe vehicles to use for grocery shopping and cruising. What is the value of ones' life?

I'm pretty sure that how anyone spends their money is no business of mine, nor is how I spend my money any of theirs.

As long as people are responsible enough to keep from being a burden to the taxpayers, then your statement is good. If those that pee away so much that they fall back on assistance, then they are minding my business.

If that's the case, grow a set and eat mans bread. Save the $1 a loaf and in about 65000 weeks you can buy a new terrible truck.


OK, I am cracking up!!!!

I LOVE "terrible trucks" - either diesel or something with a tuned exhaust. There's nothing you can't do with a truck (except park in certain parking ramps). We usually buy a 2-yr old model and let someone else take that depreciation whack - but I can't imagine not having one.

Regarding people buying trucks or anything else that's "above their means": there's always going to be those folks: nothing you say will change their minds. "Not my circus; not my monkeys"
