    Default Pulled the trigger

    Finally bought a new truck. Said I’d never get black again but got a smokin’ deal on a new old stock ‘17. Told my wife for the savings I can get a lot of bikini car washes. One of us thought that was funny.

    Been saving for a while but ended up financing 100%. Payments chap my ass but with no plans to trade it in, cash is better off invested playing the compound interest game. Dave Ramsay wouldn’t approve but it’s a luxury I can afford. God has blessed me tremendously.

    Yeah they don’t exactly give em away...

    I buy roughly one new vehicle a year for my work fleet too, and cycle the old ones out. Just base model work vans or trucks, but some are 3/4 tons or diesels. Prices are ridiculous, but gotta have em. I just buy new. Time in the shop is a hassle and days/time lost.

    I bought my first truck new the year I joined the Army and the fact that I went 190,000 miles and only replaced batteries and brakes is what makes me want to always buy new. No one I know who decided to buy what they could pay cash for has been that lucky.

    Sorry it’s a Chevy so you won’t know what that’s like but it is good looking. Lol

    I plan to drive it til it's worthless, and I traded in my last Silverado with 220,000 miles and it still ran strong, so...

    We've got Chevys and Fords in our work fleet and they're honestly about the same. Although we've had a couple Chevys run past 200k and none of the Fords have made it that long.
