I'm a little late to this party, but an interesting thread none-the-less. I don't post much here, but do lurk and try to read what I find interesting.
I too am at the point in my life that I can write a check if I want too, but usually choose to finance. I make 10% on my money so it seems that a 4% car loan makes sense.
Over the years I've owned some fast and rare cars....a 70 Judge, an SD455 TA, a 79 4 speed TA, several Corvettes, yada yada. More recently I owned a 6 speed Scat Pack that I foolishly traded.....and regretted it immediately. I've wanted a Hellcat since they came out.
Tomorrow, I'm headed to the dealership to buy either a new Scat Pack or a used 2015 Hellcat. The Hellcat belongs to the General Manager, who has been a friend of mine for 20 years. It has 5000 miles on it and smells new. I can buy the Hellcat for about $5000 more than the cost of a comparatively equipped Scat Pack.
I think it's a pretty easy choice....
1. I'm going to buy 1 or the other. Life is short.
2. $5000 is a small price to pay for the Hellcat over the Scat Pack. I really want a Hellcat.
3. If he changes his mind about selling the HC, I think I'll order a new one. After all, none of us get out alive and money doesn't mean much when you're dead.
Unless the weather is really bad, tomorrow will be a gret day.
