He must be snaking his meals from McD's...I don't understand how he could throw down $1000/month.

Must be cheap rent, cheap utilities, cheap food, cheap insurance, cheap cell phone, no college...

That stuff doesn't pan out for me, which is why I'll be heading down a cheaper road to a fast car.

With my current salary, expenses, and investments, I will have $500-1000 left over for spending and saving for the Saab. This is all with my current jobs salary, no bonuses included. Also, I can do a lot of side jobs to make extra cash. I am glad my parents got my priorities straight when it came to buying parts for my car. Saving $1000/month is doable, as long as your disciplined.

There's a big difference between saving a $1,000 month and spending a 1,000 month.



Realistically, I COULD spend $1,000/mo on a car. But that just seems stupid to me at this point.


I really don't understand some of the people here who spend so much money pimping out older Saabs yet live at home (not referencing Scott, who doesn't live at home and is working two jobs).

Since when does living at home mean a bad thing? I live at home, and both of my older brothers are jealous of that. They wished they stayed longer. I live at home, and make more money than the average 20 year old, so I think I can afford to "pimp out an old car." I am using my income to set myself up to pay the down payment for a new house, retire, and pursue a hobby. How is that not understandable? I get the feeling my parents certainly do not want to be empty nester's either.

We could start another thread vs. cluttering this one.

But the day I am spending $1,000 a month on my car, and either:

a. living at home
b. renting


Will be a cold day in hell.

Obviously, their are exceptions, you need to take care of your parents, etc.

If you put away $1,000 bucks a month of a year and a half, you have a deposit on a house. That's how I bought mine at 24.

Anyways, I will be excited to see the car and go for a ride once you have it all sorted out!

Any reason you chose to do it to a 'vert vs a 3dr or 4dr.



Oh and for $599mo you could lease a Cayman S.
