Hey, Dirk, you want to go shooting with Joker and me?
I'm free next weekend, I'm taking my mom and dad out this weekend for Mother's Day to Wisconsin. I think you have my cell.
Financing...I have never done it. I pay always cash. They hate me too.
Same. I pay for cash for everything. On one hand it's bad because it basically means I have no credit score despite having a decent income but good because it means I won't buy stuff beyond my means.
I always push financing on my clients though. A 2% spiff from the bank adds up.
Because you bought a minivan from craigslist? lol
With the exception of my first nice car I've bought all my cars through craigslist too. And sold them there as well. If you're handy with cars and know what to look for when buying a car then it'll save you a ton of money versus the stealership.
I think buying new cars is foolish since it's not something that's going to ever appreciate, except for rare supercars and hypercars. I spend more on watches than cars because certain models go up. For example, a brand new Rolex or Patek from the AD is cheaper than a pre-owned/used one because of simple supply and demand. AD knows this and hate when people flip them but there's not much they can do about it.
