Boy whatever happened to the days of basic transportation? When you could buy a new car and a new house, and not have to mortgage both? When you could buy a really cheap new car, that was cheap because it had nothing in it! Buyers are pretty spoiled today, with even the most basic car having power windows and steering, heating and air-conditioning, am/fm stereo, and even sat nav as an option because buyers expect it. So there really is no truly cheap new car anymore. I think the Yugo put the nail in the casket on that one, or maybe the Ford Fiesta. Of course, new cars have to meet so many standards today, and with the mandatory equipment and features, they would probably still be expensive even if they ripped out the luxuries. You really have to know how to simplify in life, because society won't do it for you, that's for sure. It'll drain you dry if you let it. :drunk:3-on-the-tree, NO power steering, brakes, windows, locks, etc, NO air conditioning, NO tinted glass. It only had a radio because my dad had the dealer put an AM/FM mono unit in it so mom would have something to listen to.
