Help AbeFroman/fanning find a new/used car
« on: July 06, 2012, 04:17:50 PM »
Welp, I should know what the insurance is going to give me tomorrow or Monday. I still have $4000 on my loan from my previous car. I'm sure whatever I get back will swallow that and then hopefully a little left over. I was really looking forward to having that paid off next June. What should I get? Where can I get good used cars?

You should get one of those motorized scooters with some really high handlebars and just ride around all over the place with a giant smile on your face

Look at salvage title cars. You can get really good deals on cars that have zero problems. I got one from an emaw at this place.

whatever the insurance company offers you, spit in their face and demand like $10k more.  they will give it to you, no problem.  if they don't want to do it right away (rare), start talking about lawyers and the dept of insurance.  that'll scare them straight and you'll have a check that same day.

You buy the Accord now, and you just wait and see.  The Accord has great resell, very reliable, and snazzier than most sensible sedans out there in the middle price range.  If things change, then you sell off the Accord (easy to do) and get that Odyssey.  Simple.

For a normal person, this sounds very sensible. However, we are talking about fanning. Probably should go ahead and buy one of these: http://www.autoblog.com/2010/11/12/londons-new-double-decker-bus-unveiled-w-video/

You know that "nazi" isn't some interchangable term like "jerk," right?

Yes, confirmed.

there's a better than 50% chance that fanning encountered the term nazi for the first time about two months ago.
