re: How do you pay for your cars? - PlanoPrivateer
Yes, if the reliability is there then carry on. My wife's car is a 2013 that we purchased in 2012. No problems except for a dead battery. We may hang on to it, her choice. That means that the money budgeted keeps growing allowing for a more expensive car (doubtful) or a bigger down payment. I...

re: I come in Peace! - PlanoPrivateer
I'm probably about your age. Good sportsmanship and respect are largely lost. I cringe when LSU fans predict big blow outs and say the other team has no chance. I have told my children that the only thing worse than a poor loser is a poor winner and I've seen plenty of both. You sir, are a gen...
