    I could so easily buy the parts I need to finish my autocross car.... but then I'd be paying off $2,000 worth of crap for a while >:|

    So tempting to just have everything now... must... resist...

    If you can't pay for it know and don't absolutely have to have it, wait.

    Buy it on credit and it will be worn out and you will still be paying for it.

    Credit card debt is a never ending vicious cycle. Be like the rest of us – buy it and then justify it by playing the Powerball, hey someone has to win right….;)

    My platinum card is the only thing I abuse more than my liver.

    Think of it as contributing to the economy!

    Credit Cards + 4WD vehicle = MASSIVE DEBT

    This is more revolutionary scientific formula than e=mc^2

    I really have nothing to add to this, i'm only quoting it to emphasise how true it really is.

    Credit is great!..UNTIL....its time to pay up!..

    Credit is how we can get what we want NOW!---BEFORE we die!...we can croak anytime,dont put off your dreams until your too old,sick,or DEAD to enjoy life!..

    Thats the "Master Card" slogan of life..Enjoy it NOW,before its too late....

    Just make sure you have a good job ,to pay off that 18% interest charge on top of the balance...maybe if your lucky you'll die after the stuff is worn out,you've had a blast,and before the bills come in the mail....:rolleyes:

    All I have to say is learn self control and this is not true in the least. I currently have three four wheel drive vehicles and have not incurred massive debt.

    Put the card down and slowly walk away from the table. Don't do it.

    I just paid off my CC dept and what a relief. It took 6 months and a lot of cash but the nightmare is over. I save up for what I want now and use the credit card to pay for it, then immediatly pay it off when it gets posted. No more worries about making a payment.

    Do what you want, but this is good advise.

    ****! I just opened my bill, and I've spent over 900 hundred dollars last month. I now have a total debt of $3900. I'm about ready to shed my card.

    I used my VISA ($250.00 limit) to buy my shotgun. Totally worth it.
