Ok, Economics 102
1990 v8q, dkblue/grey - 125k - $1700 (w/taxes,title) - 3.5 years ago.
6 months afterward (not unexpected) - over $2000 in new parts,
my own labor of love.
Since then - over $1300 in new parts, again, my labor. Not
including tires and such.
Now - 170k - runs like a champ
Total cost of ownership : $5000
Per year : $1430
Per month : $120
Per Mile : $0.11
I don't figure that is too bad considering I love the car, which is in
good shape other than the A/C and paint job, and I could wreck it right
now and still be on top - or I could sell it and maby get back half of the
total I have in it - Not too bad - of course I haven't got to enjoy the
car as long as some of the other veterans, but I wasn't old enough to
drive in 1990 anyway!
