Drive it till it drops ?
It was written by a person that I kinda know...a Joe something...anyway...
In this book the author discussed the merits of simply maintaining an older car vs. buying a new car. The costs of repair, fuel, depreciation etc were discussed. The author made a strong case that keeping a well maintained old car on the road made more financial sense than buying a new car every few years.
As I re-read the book, I had to wonder how the author would feel now. Cars have become much more expensive and complex. Yesterday's 500.00 transmission repair bill would now be 2500.00 etc.
From my vantage point, I see a lot of cars traded in that are in great shape. The owners simply tire of them or worry about impending doom.
I just wonder if that author's feelings have changed ove the last twenty years.
It was an interesting book.
