Later I poked it into a money-market account with a brokerage house in order to make more interest. Since that time I've bought two new and one used vehicle by paying cash, haven't made a car-payment to a creditor in a decade, but I keep making that payment to myself!! Feels good, plus the money is there if a guy ever needed it for some real emergency. I become increasingly convinced that with the economy as uncertain as it seems to be at present, the only legitimate form of indebtedness, certainly in any sort of long-term sense, is one's home mortgage.....and even that can be shakey as we have seen lately, at least under some circumstances and/or in certain parts of the country.


You sir are a smart man. Thats exactly how it should be done....if you can.

The Tacos are good looking trucks, but the best looking Taco is one that is paid off ! Congrats ! In under a year, that's impressive.
