Got a new car

It's the same one as I had already, but they took 125,000 miles off it.  I'll need another car in 4 years.  Sigh.  The price was good.

Still sorta wish I got the '04 Crown Vic with 35,000 miles on it.  But I need more cargo space every other week, and 2 weeks a summer, and 4WD for the 5 times it snows.

Looking at carmax, I could get a used Lincoln Towncar for $12,000 or less.  And.  I can afford that.  Now.  After buying a used Durango.  I would eat up a good portion of my emergency cash fund, but not even close to all of it.  I could still buy a new roof after that.  2 used cars and a roof without going into debt.  I should feel blessed.  And I do feel so.  

But you know what is expensive?  F150s.  Couldn't afford one of those without financing.

Lot of Dodge RAM 1500's around (here) for sale. But $8k for one with 120k on the clock doesn't seem that great a deal.

Meh... depends. If it gets to 220k... Would I spend $1000 to go 12,500 miles? For me that is 7 months.
