From a girls POV it's my understanding having the windows up lessens the wind in hair factor... but then again I've only ever owned a Ranger so what do I know?? haha

Yet having the top down doesn't affect your hair in the slightest.....

Girls. I'll never get you. Well, except you, Marie, lol.

Hahaha.. I understand the logic but I work with a guy who's wive has that VW convertable... he says if the windows and back wall thing are up with the top down it doesn't affect your hair... but again... rangers don't come in convertible so what do I know... lol

i agree with just renting a car

and for the top thing, if you want the windows up, you should just get a sunroof. and if you are worried about your hair, then you should stay home :)

To all that Are wondering..... I traded the Red 2008 GT for the Ranger I was -$10,000 upside down.... This time (Yes 2 months later and 1-$400 payment I was only $5,000 upside down (4cyl. Ranger market is STRONG) So In two months I was +$5,000 from where I was. I had this planned from day one. I bought her the Red 2008 GT against her will (She wanted a White Vert) So I figured out a plan to get that car. I managed to pull it off perfectly.

Step One:
Traded 2008 Mustang GT Coupe for Ranger ($20,000 given, I owed $30,000)
Traded 2009 Ranger Sport For Mustang GT Vert ($14,900 given, I owed $19,900)
Mustang's Sticker MSRP - $38,895. I financed $35,000. I just saved $5,000

Understand? If not, I'm sorry, I'm into investments lately and I figured out a way to get the Ranger to use to get out of negative equity.

How long will WE keep this car? Probly a long time, I signed a legal agreement with my dad/investment partner that we would keep it for at least 2 years. If we default on this agreement I will have to pay my dad $10,000 to break contract. Yea sounds stupid, I know, but I signed one with my Ranger two years ago, for keeping my promise, I got $500 to invest through my dads investment company. Win=Win.

And thats why your single. She had them up because at 80-90 MPH it blows your hair into your face.... If I ever catch you beating on a woman. It won't be good.

Do I have a problem? YES

- It started with a series of bad car decisions 2 years ago. She has always asked for a White Convertible

Why Didn't I buy it 2 years ago? MONEY!

- Our income 2 years ago was EXACTLY 1/2 what it is now.

Am I in debt? NOPE!

-I owe on my house, 14 more payments on my truck, NO CREDIT CARDS OR OTHER LOANS, 72 Payments on the car.

-Debt to income ratio for me is less than %20 which is great.

Why would I sign that agreement?

-My dad is a money genius. He is old and wise, he has my best interest at heart. I trust him

Anywho Thanks Zach!

Damn there are a bunch of whiny little girls on this forum....

Who the fvck cares what him and his wife do? If they want a certain vehicle, and can afford it, more power to them. Most people question it because they are jealous...

Car looks sick man. I'm not a big fan of white or convertibles, but i'd still love to have that car. One day...

Oh yeah, and someone suggested heals and skirt pics....don't disappoint. LOL

i kind of understand your investing process... i kind of learn that sort of thing from my girlfriend who is getting into real estate and honestly now is the time to buy a house. with the market being so low you could seel the house in a few years and make money. kind of like what you did for the truck/cars
