I’ve flirted with the idea of buying a car before, but I think I’m ready to make it happen. Why?
- So Tom doesn’t have to drive me to golf
- So Tom doesn’t have to drive me to bowling
- So Tom doesn’t have to drive me to our parents house
- So Tom…
You get the point, I rely too much on others (mostly Tom). Last week I bike shared THREE MILES in 90 degree heat with my fucking GOLF CLUBS on my back so I could golf with Gourlay, Dale, and Vince. I just shouldn’t have to do that.
From what I understand, everyone thinks they know the best way to get a car. I listen to a sports podcast and they spent 15 minutes at the end of one episode talking strategy for buying a car at a dealership; “Never put any money down, say you have to think about it, threaten to leave!” Those are not my style.
Loyal readers, give me advice. I don’t need anything fast or flashy. What’s the best way to go about getting a car? New? Used? Give me a Honda Accord, give me a Nissan Altima, hell I’d even drive a Prius! Just give me a good car and the best way to buy it. I hope for responses from Bill, Matzah, Not Dave, Addasheee, but all are welcome.
P.S. I told my dad this week I was thinking of buying a car. His first question was “What are you going to get? Something fast?!” My dad has always driven unnecessarily expensive cars and I don’t know why. It must be a generational thing. I do not need a fast car.
