I still remember the first time I started shopping for a used car. Since I was more concerned about looking cool than how much money I spent, I focused on finding a bright red shiny car instead of checking out the engine. Although I was able to track down a pretty sweet looking convertible, the car only ran well for a few hundred miles. However, I was able to turn that bad investment into a lifestyle. After my car died, I learned more about cars, and now I like to teach other people how to get a great price on a decent ride.
