WOW! You’re certainly the exception in this Forum, but that’s why it’s called PERSONAL finance, right!? I bought a 2010 Nissan 370z in 2012, paid cash, and have driven it for 72k miles. Great commuter car, 28 MPG but still a blast to drive!
Somewhere in the middle of my car buying, they started to retain a good deal of equity so that when I would trade them in I would only have to finance like $10-14k with the trade-in, It helps that I pay them off early and quickly. In my early years it wasn’t unusual to be upside-down on a loan and then roll that into the new loan… yes very crazy. Now it makes more sense than a lease, having the equity and all but of course it would make more sense it I just quit doing this. LOL. Yes the 370z is a blast to drive and very good on gas, comfortable and powerful.
