Bought and Paid For

July 04, 2009

Today I made the last payment on the 2001 Lexus LS 430 that is our primary car. Sometime next week I will call the Credit Union and start the process of getting the title sent to me. In the twenty-five years that I've been buying cars, this will be the first one I have owned outright.

Starting with a 1984 Pontiac Fiero, in February 1984, I have made payments on the following assortment of vehicles:

Along the way I've also had three two-wheeled vehicles:

Between the two of us, Sibylle and I now have a 1998 GMC Jimmy and a 2001 LS 430, both of which are paid for.

Time to start saving that monthly car payment for a rainy day.
