    It’d be worth it to purge the only “non-ford” from my driveway...

    I only gave 17,500 for my house. There's no frickin way, I'd pay 100k for a pickup. There's no way I'd pay half that for a new pickup either. Either I'm a cheap bastard or some people have too much money.

    Yep! My cousin got out of HVAC school, got a good paying job and did what most youngsters do when they get their first good paying job, he bought a brand new vehicle, that cost about 40k. He came by and gave me a ride and said "what do ya think"? I said "It's pretty nice! I'm not sure it's 2 of my houses nice, but it's nice nonetheless".

    I would guess your house appreciated . The vehicle depreciates way to fast.

    Yessir. I don't know how accurate it is, but I heard, years ago, that vehicles drop 20% value when you drive them off the lot.

    My house was priced way under what it was valued at when I bought it. So I was "ahead" from the get go. That said, property doesn't appreciate as much out here, as other areas. Farm ground goes through the roof, when crops are high, but residential property doesn't swing very much unless you sink a ton into it.

    I won't buy a new vehicle for one reason.
    I just saw on marketplace a 2008 Corvette for sale.
    $18,000.
    11 years old. That's not that old in my book. What did it cost new? I'm going to guess $45,000. Give or take.
    I remember when the longest loan you could get was 36 months. That's because vehicles depreciate out at 3 years. Still do. My dad would take out 24 mo loans because he traded every 2 years.
    Now you can get a loan for 8 years.
    Still depreciates out at 3 years. Ever heard of being upside down on your vehicle loan? That's why insurance companies offer gap insurance. Without it you're saddled with the unpaid balance of the loan if the vehicle is totaled before it's paid off.
    Think of this. The second you sign the loan papers and that new car is yours, you are now the proud owner of a used car. Before you drive it off the dealership lot, it's already lost money.
    That's why I only buy used vehicles. But only if I have to. In the last 10 years I think I've had 10 different vehicles. I only paid for 2. The others I did an even trade for. I traded a 1980 CJ5 for my wife's 2002 F150. Total dollars out of my pocket was $25.
    My neighbor came hone a few years ago with a new F150. Fortunatly it was an overnight test drive. He was excited about it. Until I rained on his parade. I asked him what the monthly payment was going to be. He said $800. I then asked him how long the loan was for. He said 8 years.
    8 YEARS!!! I pointed out that he was likely to pay more for this truck, over the life of the loan, than what his house was worth. They got the truck back the next day.

    It amazes me how fast people load up the miles on those new vehicles as well, which will help that depreciation even more. I just talked to a fella today, who has a 2014 Dodge 1 ton with a Cummins, and it already has 114k on it. 5 years. My pickup is 40 years old and has 320k on it, for perspective.

    800 bucks for a car payment is silly in my mind, unless you use it for a business to make money. My house payment was 181 bucks a month, on a 10 year note, and I paid it off in 5, and put a 5500 dollar roof on it in that time as well.

    I despise debt, so that has a bit to do with my method of thinking.

    Picked this up over the weekend, less than $2oo, 20" bar and a few chains. Need to do some cleaning and find a choke lever. Seemed to run okay after 3 pulls from cold. Maybe post some pictures when I get a closer look. Already have a 365sp and 562xp so not sure if I will keep it.

    That's what I'm talking about, except I want one with a bucket. Ladders and climbing suck.
