Why I Drive a 13 Year Old Car at Get Rich Slowly: I know this isn’t popular with the auto companies or the UAW, but this post is excellent financial advice for most of you. I drove a $500.00 car from 1988-1992. I drove a $1000 car from 1992-1997. I drove a $2000 car from 1997-2000. I drove a $12,000 car from 2000 until 2007 (That is the most expensive car I’ve ever owned. I bought it used and paid for it in less than 3 years.) And for the last year, I have been driving a 7 yo mini-van with 100K miles on it. Why? I don’t like to throw money away. Over the past 21 years, I have spent less than 20K on my personal transportation.
