1) I have a 4 yr. 2.9% loan on my new car.
a) I _could_ just put the cash into T-bills at 5%+
b) I could put it into Vanguard Index (which I already own)
c) I could put it into the Foolish Four at the start of the year.
[where did I get the cash -- by not stopping the
payroll deduction when my last car was paid off]

2) Is the Foolish Four investment a good idea IF I might need the money at the end of the four years?
a) With the change in the tax law re. Long Term Capital gains, do you still roll over every 12 mo. or do you not roll over until the 18 mo. is up?

3) I am retired (see signature) but so far am still in a positive cash flow situation, if this makes any difference in investment strategies.
