mark99ant--Well, I have a very different opinion of that and told him my thoughts, which he proceeded to tell me I didn't know what I was talking about and that all the car salesmen had leases, which to him seemed to justify the thought.

rocker----one of my cars is a 13 year old toyota camry....it runs just as good as the day i bought it.....and it has been paid off for the last 10 years.....can you imagine how much money i would have spent leasing a camry for the last 13 years??? and the opportunity cost lost investing in the markets over that period of time, compounding along the way.....this is a no brainer, in my opinion....

since all the car salesmen had leases, it is easy to see why they continue to put on ties in the morning, slicker their hair and sell cars all day, sometimes at night, and on the weekends and i get the opportunity to retire early!!!!

they certainly don't make "cents" to me <grin>
