Car Wars

I was in Atlanta for a conference this week and came across this from the Journal-Constitution on people keeping their cars longer, basically because of the economy and also cars seem to be built to last longer these days.

We have 2 vans, the first is a '98 Voyager that we bought in 2000; when we paid that off we bought a Grand Caravan that was a little higher end, which we're still making payments on. DW drives the Dodge, in case you couldn't guess. We bought them both "late model used." I need to baby the Voyager because it's probably going to have to last at least another 5 years. It' s bad on gas and we don't need 2 vans but what we don't need even more than that at this point is another car payment.
