I bought a brand new Ford 150 for $32,000 (more than the price of my first house $24,000) and have to pay $530 a month for the next six years... I may not be able to work long enough to pay it off {8^).

Hello fellow Zionistas,

A little more than eight years ago we (My wife and I, and actually it was mostly my wife's idea) purchased an old 1979 Ford Pickup with a fairly new engine for $800.00. The pickup was used quite often, to get me to and from work, and for various and sundry hauling projects. Other than new tires, a new battery, a new fan belt, and changing the oil occasionally, absolutely nothing was done to the pickup--not even a tune-up <grin>. It was a lean mean hauling machine.

Well, the other day I traded it for an almost brand new EZ3-Trike (A 21 speed recumbent trike which can go faster than a mountain bike. My kids can't ride a regular bike so we were looking for various types of trikes that they could ride) worth $750.00. Which means that after using the pickup for more than eight years we sold it for only $50.00 less than we what we bought it for. How's that for thrift? Anyone else have similar "thrift" stories to tell?

"But where some say is the king of America? Iīll tell you Friend, he reigns above, and doth not make havoc of mankind like the royal brute of Great Britain. Yet that we may not appear to be defective even in earthly honors, let a day be solemnly set apart for proclaiming the charter; let it be brought forth placed on the divine law, the Word of God; let a crown be placed thereon, by which the world may know, that so far as we approve of monarchy, that in America the law is king. For as in absolute governments the king is law, so in free countries the law ought to be King; and there ought to be no other." (Thomas Paine, _Common Sense_)
