My current car is a 1996 Chevy Caprice. Needless to say it qualifies for Cash for Clunkers. All my co-workers are coming up and asking me when I'm going to trade it in. This has become extremely annoying! I keep explaining that the car runs, it's paid for and the insurance is dirt cheap. I don't want another bill on my shoulder at the moment, even if it's one I can afford. I would rather pay down my credit card balances. And my co-workers should know better. Our parent company recently bought a company who's staff will be merged with ours this fall and some jobs (on both sides) will be eliminated. I don't want to be in the situation of buying a new car and then finding out I'm laid off a couple of month later. God can't people just mind their own business! If they want to buy a new car and theirs qualifies then go right ahead. I need to conduct my life the best way I see fit, and a new car right now doesn't fit in.
