picking a new car
I recently changed jobs. I am going from a 28Kish gross to mid 50's take home annually. I am going to wait a little while before I make in major purchases just to make sure the job works out and I don't stick myself with bills I can't afford should something happen. The oil field pays well but enough people want a job it don't take much of a screw up to forced to find another.
I am limited on my car choices since I live a rural area and have limited dealers close by. I don't want to drive 2-3 hours for warrenty work. The most I want to pay is low 30K's. I could get a stripped 2011 Mustang GT, loaded Mustang v6 (not a problem for me since they are about as quick as the previous gt), or a 370Z. I am as single as it gets so I am not worried about passenger space. I don't even have a passenger 98% of the time. The mustang is cheaper but I can also get a pretty good deal on the 370 because my buddy works at a dealer. I still have to look at insurance cost. I am over 25 with a spotless record and no claims. I the Z is going to be more just not sure how much. I like the extra space of the 'stang but every high school girl has one. The two cars should perform close enough that it won't really play a part in the decision making. I do need to test drive them both to see how they feel to me.
I know my friend that the dealer said that when the 350Z's were marked down to 20K as the 370's were coming out he would still get the 370. They are 10K better that the 350.
I will not by a Dodge or Government Motors. I liked the Camaro's till the bailouts
