Fun or Depressing Math

Recommended Posts

I decided to add up my TC's Hobby Bills. Its a good thing I enjoy driving the car. Financially, I could never recover what I've invested so far (and will probably continue to).

Of course, below does not account for the hours spent by myself in labor.

On the other side of the coin, that money could have bought a used car that would continue to go down in value......and still need those parts one by one.

I have a 96 Olds and a windshield wiper jet is 36 dollars. Or free at a junkyard. If and when I junk it, the trunk lock will be saved for the TC. wink.gif
