I mean, the rest of that is pathetic, but I wouldn't place TOO much importance in what someone spends on a vehicle. Me, I just can't at all stand how fast they depreciate. I buy em a little better than that (in the $4,000 to 8,000 range) and just savor owning my truck outright, no strings on me, no bank looming like the sword of damocles.

he would NEVER consider buying a vehicle above $1500 at most, and try to talk them down to $1000. he had 60k in the bank that he never touched, even when his car broke down going back to his parents for the holidays. i wound up driving him around for holiday trips after that first year just so i would not have to deal with his bullshit about cars. Looking back, i honestly have no idea wtf was wrong with him.

That's pretty ridiculous. I can see some appeal in the "disposable vehicle" approach but not when you're inconveniencing yourself and others in the process. Especially not when there's decent machines just above that price range.
