Buy a car or a boat, but don’t buy a new one.
That’s what we did last year when we bought a $40,000, three-seat, 2.8-liter turbocharged Porsche 911 Turbo R. This year, we want to keep it simple, and the best way to do that is to go to Craigslist and look for a used, underpowered, or underpowered car.
The difference between the two is usually pretty obvious.
You can buy a used car on Craigslist for $2,500 or less, and you can rent a car for $10,000 or less.
But the more expensive cars usually come with an overpriced lease or a hefty price tag that you might not be able to afford.
This is why we’re starting with a small, inexpensive car.
What you’ll need and what you can expect: A Craigslist listing for a new car (with the car title and year)
