For the past decade I’ve driven my cars into the ground. Two of my last three cars were driven, quite literally, until the engines blew up and they had to be towed away.
The average age of my last three cars at the time I bought them has been 13.5 years old. Buying older cars and driving them into the ground has allowed us to get ahead financially. In fact, driving older POS vehicles for the past decade allowed us to buy a brand new car this week.
