I hear ya. I am taking the TTC every day now just to save money to install my supercharger. I only drive once a week now, and I've been doing that since last october. Even though it doesn't seem like a lot of money, it sure adds up!!

Well I guess I was lucky. I was looking at a 94 Bmw (4 years ago) and just fell in love with them. I had to come up with some quick cash to buy one. Wanted to pay it cash, no since in buying a car on a loan when you store it in the winter. My $0.02. Any how, 3 of my buddy's and I scored a job last November with Public Works(Government) witch pays a little over $30 an hour. Well march came around and no money(All gone) and then at the end of march I got my pay $6200. Saved that then april came around saved that pay and May bought my Bimmer cash. Mind you it's only a 94 I could have gotten newer but cash and insurence would not permit. So end of may rolls around, contract ends, no more job and I've been un-employed since. So no mods, no fawk all done to my car. Can't afford it. With that job my buddies bought (Cash) a 97 Blazer, an 89 Supra Turbo (Now he has 2) and a 2003 Honda Civic. It was being in the right place at the right time for me. I used to be a waiter since I was 18 and a bus boy from 15-18 as a waiter it was roughly 16 an hour and all I did was drink my money away.....As for insurance I pay $1100 a year both sides, droping down to 1 side for winter storage and the toyota I pay $330 a year 1 side. I'm 25 clean as a whistle record and that's the cheapest I could find.

Hey man! thanks for the idea... how do you deal with the daily car startup or do you even start it up and run it for like 30 minutes ? I think if i start taking ttc again and drive onces a week i will save up tons for sure heheh.

I maybe turn on my car twice a week if that. I dont think it hurts the car too much, but if I let it sit for let's say a month, things MIGHT dry up in the engine or something.
To give you an idea of how much money I'm saving, I only fill up my car once every 2 weeks. Guess how nice that is
