I think for a lot of people it's been hard work and determination! For me it was a balancing act of full time+ weeks for the past 4 years, fitting in school full time credit load, and smart saving/investments. Bought an eclipse from a friend, fixed it up a bit and sold it for profit. Mostly just Work Work work and mixed in whenever possible!
Plus I was very very lucky to find the deal I got. 2011 with 13.5k, Rs package, plus every other option available and came with winter rims/tires (however I'm hoping to borrow an extra work vehicle most of the winter if I'm lucky) from dealer for 22K. Better deals to be found on here I'm sure. Working in sales probably comes to advantage with swindling and such. Happy to be a part of the forums and look forward to researching and learning more! Already looking around to start the modification process.

DePaul University starting September as a Transfer.

IT and finances at a medical practice. Saved some money for it and made my credit first priority. Decided to get one before I head off to school since I'll be working remotely. Figured my 22nd birthday would be as good as time as any.

Every time we drove by you or something we were always in my friend's F150, we never take the Camaro anywhere because of the back seat

We worked on my friend's motorcycle for hours in that parking lot too, and you never appeared lol.

I don't know, I have a number of friends who go to ASU Jonesboro and have heard enough horror stories about what they do to people's cars to think twice about leaving it in the dorm parking areas for more than a few hours
