It is ALMOST ALWAYS more economical to repair your old car than buy a much expensive "newer" one.

There was a good book called "Drive it forever" years ago. Author bought a junky old car for $285 and drove it for years for modest repairs & maitenence.


I found this book available at Amazon. Some of the comments indicated that the techniques for prolonging the life of the car are most applicable to cars built before 1985. Do you know if there's an updated version more applicable to newer cars? I'd like my car to last at least 10 years and would appreciate info like this.
