We did it! We did it!!
No not that! Get your mind out of the gutter. We paid of my van. Yes it is a 1999 Dodge Caravan with a few dents and a crack in the windshield, but it is all mine. Yay!!! Hello extra $336 a month, nice to meet you. You will be meeting my savings account. We still had another year on our contract but we got the money together and now have the title. I still need to go to the DMV and get it changed over but I have the title in my hands. I haven't had the title to a car since 1997. Yeah, you read right 14 years ago. I had by far my favorite car. A 1970 Chevrolet Nova, it was my baby and I loved it. I spent a lot of time and money on that car. I eventually gave it to my brother, because with a baby on the way I didn't have money to put into a car that needed a new engine. Not to mention it didn't always start when you wanted it to. It was temperamental like me. lol My husband has had the title to a car in his name about 3 years ago but the transmission went out so it was done for. Especially when it only Kelly Blue Booked for $300. But now I have a van that is paid for and works well. OK works well most of the time. Hey its 12 years old it won't be perfect but I don't expect it to. I know a few people who would run right out and trade it for a newer model but that makes no sense to me. Yes it would be newer and everything would work right, but then comes more payments. So now I plan to run this van or "coupie" as Iris used to call it until it dies. Of course my oldest want to do things like put in a dvd player and all this cool stuff. Not me it runs and stops that is all I need.
