Did you know Chrysler got bailed out before 2008? Lee I-dontknowhowtospell-cocca set it up.

so, do u mean let Jeep, Chrysler, Dodge and GM die too?

that surely would’ve created a depression right?

just curious
Why not? This isn't the Industrial Revolution and they are not the sole employers of persons despite their rhetoric to the contrary. Amidst this terrible virus that came from "somewhere" we proved that we don't need our cars as much as we have used them, especially, for work.

As for the other major discussion in this thread I present this truck. Which for the low low price of $319.95 has nearly the same GVWR as our Broncos. Are we a bunch of suckers?

My first Bronco, a 1970 cost $3600 OTD. It was nice but really plain. The newer vehicles are really better made. I'll take a 2022 Bronco loaded for $60K over a '70s cleaned up. I know the '22 will go down in value and the '70s go up. I don't care. I want new, nice, fast, comfortable. When the '22 is 6-7 years old I'll trade it for another new one.

If I could finance $45,000 worth of parts over 7 years I'd get a classic and do the work myself.

Nah... just make your own parts... I mean everyone here is an engineer, designer, metallurgist, machinist, welder, mechanic, electrician, plastics molder and glass maker... right?
You got one of those right 💋

Anti-Dave Ramsey advice:
#401k loan. Pay yourself back 4.5% over 4-5 years vs. a bank.
In no way do I advocate it or advise it.
your 4.5% interest to yourself statistically would be less than the gains if you left it.
But it worked for me positively once. Very much.
Just gotta pay attention and do it at the right time.
