American culture is a car culture, but we've gotten to the point where too much of our income goes to pay for our four-wheeled friends. Not this hombre.
I've taken the bull by the horns and cut the automotive financier and the ASE certified mechanic out of my life. I paid cash for my old beater and keep it on the road, for the most part, with my own two hands. It's a lifestyle that most people don't go for, but in the long run, I come out the winner. And I did it without a bunch of fancy tools or a hydraulic lift. Hell, I don't even have a garage.
