That is why so many states are having problems because the money they are taking in isn't like it was 10 years ago and therefore they have to cut state spending in order to balance the budget. Only the federal government can spend more than it takes in.

As for paying your taxes and mine, nah I'm all set with paying Conn taxes, and RI income taxes (not that much since its only on my bank accounts).

BTW I bought my Camaro in Mass, but I still had to pay the sales tax, forgot what that came up to so your not the only one.

Edit: Anyways clearly we are off topic, so I'll leave the conversation if you want for one more time in your court, but from here on out I'll try to be more on topic since this isn't the place to debate this.
If you live in Rhode Island and your car is registered in Rhode Island, YOU DID NOT PAY MASSACHUSETTS SALES TAX. This is paid at the Registry of Motor Vehicles when you register your car. You also did not pay excise tax here because it is only levied on cars registered in Massachusetts by the cities and towns. If you are registered here and live in Rhode Island you are breaking the law. You are also wrong about what you said about a federal law requiring the states to not be in the red with spending. Read your constitution, specifically the 10th ammendment. California sure seems to be going bankrupt from over spending according to the news. This post was about keeping our cars. all I did was respond, and give the reasons why I am choosing to keep mine. I will be paying minimal sales taxes from now on because I am keeping my SS and I will be buying used cars from now on as my winter machines. They will get me 1 more time though when I replace my current Harley. When that is done, no more brand new vehocles. I will let people like you pay for the freeloaders.

As long as my left leg (clutch) is strong enough, I'm keeping it! Then I pass it down to one of my sons and HE can drive me around in it!

I got mine in January. I have been modding it quite a bit. I think it will likely be sold at my estate sale.
For me, it just seems like a good time. No car payment anymore, and I'll probably be in the mood for a "refresh" of my current car. Performance or cosmetic mods would probably be nice.

Mine will be a keeper, I'm not one to buy every few years. I like, research, settle on a car and that's that!

Currently my only other "bought new" that was for myself is my 92 LX stang. Still got her, and plan on keeping her even after getting a 2SS (which will hopefully be very soon).

Like many above, once I know my kid will drive it with care (not at 16!) I'll hand it down more than likely, or tell him to get his own... haha.

You get severely punished in this liberal bastion for buying a new car. I am fed up with getting my f$%#ing pocket picked. If you buy new tires for your SS in Taxachusetts, you will pay $113.00 in sales tax. We can get away with buying our tires in New Hampshire, but not our cars.

In 5 years when it's paid off I will decide whether to keep it and mod the hell out of it, or sell it to buy a Z-28!

I am keepiing mine until my son is old enough to drive then it is all his, he is 11 now. I told him that when he gets the camaro I am getting a vette. He tells me "no you need to buy a Z28 first then get the vette". It took me a minute to realize he was setting up his next 2 cars at 11..... Little SOB......

Same story with me as well. My son is 11 now and will get this Camaro when he starts driving and I'll move onto the Z28(if avail.) or a Vette.

I've had my truck for 11 years since I bought it new. It's still in my drive way and gets driven all the time. In a few years when they pump out the 6th gen my Camaro will just get another stable mate.

For me, it's a lack of funds. I don't want to blow the warranty which may only add to my brokeness. The other problem is once I start modding... I won't want to stop
