Lost it years ago. Every so often I get a quick urge to work on it and make some changes but that usually only lasts a few minutes or hours. Generally I could care less about my my car anymore.

Yeah, I had all sorts of plans for the Mustang that aren't really happening anymore since I have to drive all the way up to Cowichan Bay to work on it. And now since I bought the MS3 I lost interest even more.

I still love driving it though.

Yes and no... I've been spending 10-12 hours a week in the garage and basically making no progress whatsoever.

I lost it a long time ago but since I'm a poor bastard finances force me to do most of my own work. There are times (often) when it's nice to have a son who's a mechanic. After the money pits my 4runner and '91 Miata were and now that the Beetle is mostly done, I can take it easy for awhile.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it. I rarely work on my car anymore unless I'm doing maintenance issues - plugs, oil, air filter.

Thats why i gave up and bought new. Pay more monthly, and let the warranty do all of the work. Get rid of car before its over, and start again.

But yeah, same as said above... besides the basics, or the stuff i'm too cheap to have done, i do it myself.

lost it, sold the truck after too many hours in....

bigger things come up in life like buying a house or condo or working more for extra money, then blowing 500 bucks for a downpipe or a grand for a turbo

At the end of the day I want to drive something unique and stands out... so you either buy it that way, or do it yourself

he is probably reffering to high prices and low interest rates, which will cause problems for alot of people when they go to renew their mortgages in 5 years. interest rates have nowhere to go but up, which can and will effect house prices.

for many people it is worth the risk, but i agree with ryan, i dont think right now is the best time to buy. yes july was a record sales month, but that has alot to do with first time buyers being approved for some of the lowest interest rates ever, and focusing on monthly payments rather than long term costs (ie the costs associated with a 35 year vs 25 year). i think there is alot of potential for a bubble burst and housing price crash.

again, alot of people have weighed the options, and obviously feel that it is worth the risk, and that is completely their decision. im alot more on the bear side of financial risk, so as always, take opinions with a grain of salt.

Bubble burst? Highly doubt it. We live in the most desirable area in Canada. Victoria British Columbia is located in Canada's only sub tropical climate zone. As more and more people grow and retire, many see this area as becoming even more desirable.

Though I do agree what you posed as a risk, first time buyers not being able to renew their mortgage in 5 years will not cause a "Bubble Burst"

It was not just first time home buyers that contributed to such huge July sales figures.

None the less I think this topic deserves another thread

are you a realtor? because that is exactly what they are spouting, almost word for word. I have yet to understand how people can move here and pay high prices if they can't sell their houses elsewhere (in the states, alberta, ontario, etc)?

there will always be a debate about it, with bears and bulls quoting figures that support their viewpoint. as i said, take EVERY opinion with a grain of salt, good or bad.

So our more strict lending standards mean nothing?

I knew that statement went no where....


Why do I come to RS again?

Canada is not the US, I don't think we'll have any US-style crash. I'm very happy having just purchased now, while there was a price adjustment. We ARE in the most desirable area of the country and prices will begin creeping up again.

My mortgage + strata fee on my townhouse is less than rent on the condo I was renting. If things go wrong, I can always take a roomate.
