That’s because you can only drive an old Ford Festiva with stick shift for so long before it gives out. Thanks Obama, for the high gas prices!
No way I believe this.
Bet they do NOT!
We have another thing coming and buying a new car will not fit into their plans to survive.
Who are these people kidding?That would be the day I would buy a new vehicle of any type.
As far as I’m concerned NOW is Not the time to buy anything that expensive espechially on credit.
My vehicle is 7 years old and it’s going to have too last a while longer.
half of them also think sosh security is a good return on ‘investment’ ,the Easter Bunny is real,and
they’re going to win the lottery soon.
I’m tradin’ in my Highlander for this;
Watch, they are going to buy Trucks, SUVs, and Minivans again and not the green commie cars.
Congratulations on finally achieving your lifetime goal of finally owning a Cadillac!
It looks like a flying saucer landed on it! Bizarre, to say the least!
Real story is 86.8% Of Americans do not Plan To Buy Car Or Truck Soon, and I am one of them.
Too bad it has a reserve, it would have gone for really big money at the Barrett-Jackson auction last month.
Let’s see if their plans change after the incipient stock market crash.
Any time now, real soon, any second, probably next week....
No new car for me until I pay off my house(less than 4 yrs now). Here’s hoping my Toyota hangs in there just for several more years.
