      Im a cashier at a grocery store. Traded my stock vision Vs for some merc monoblocks, then traded those for these LM reps. saved for months to buy FKs, then a week after i got the Fks bought a $1000 DSLR and paid for next years school.
      When i was in NYC, i was eating at a restaurant with my friend when Bill Murray passed by, took a french fry from our basket, dipped it in ketchup, ate it and said:"No ones ever going to believe you" before walking out.

      That car is ILL dude. Also, I'm originally from the West Valley of AZ myself and I think back now how much money I could spend on my car if it wasn't just for the sheer expense of living in Cali.

      Im definitely in this category... I used to make a ton of money doing sales and then the economy tanked and routes were deleted and I happened to be one of those that lost the sales position, not my job, just sales position. I now about 15,000 a year less than I did when I was in sales, so I definitely consider myself on a budget. Have my own place but my partner lives with me now and deal with all my bills, 2 dogs, car payment and other expenses. With what little I have left I usually try to put aside to put towards the car. I have had my car for going on 4 years and this is where she sets today. I get compliments all the time on my car which makes me like it that much more! I love my car and dont think I wanna get rid of it anytime soon. Oh well, on to pics!!

      The day I brought her home




      The way she sets now

      Nope. He lives at home and commutes to college and he has a loan out on the car.
      I'm his twin brother.

      I was making $10 an hour and payed this sucker off 2 days shy of a year.
      I worked my ass off in high school. Now I'm a freshman at LSU.
      I had car payments, insurance, cell phone, gas, etc. Our parents didn't pay for anything.
      I'm on that minimum wage now...
