how much money do I have to pay for a down payment on a car that will make my co workers jealous of me? ?
some of my co workers already have cars but they are just basic everyday cars. i figured if they were gonna try and beat me at getting a car first then ill just 1 up them by getting an even sexier car than all of theirs that will make them go “omg i can’t believe he has a sexier car than me. waaaaaaaah”
your first car should be a gently used hoopty that runs well but might not look so hot or sexy. Once you hit age 25 and have a clean driving record, you can afford something nicer and the insurance will not kill you.
People will just think you’re stupid if you do that.
I used to work across the street from an apartment complex, in a run down neighborhood. Every morning, I saw someone pulling out of the garage area of the complex in a very expensive looking Mercedes, and I would think to myself “How stupid is THAT”.
