That's a lot of dough man. I know you're doing well making money in the oil field but don't you think you should save up some money? Just saying dude. I've seen this a lot in the oil field with hands and workers making a lot of money and just buying expensive cars and trucks.

Not criticizing as it is your choice in the end. Just speaking from experience.

Badass car.

This isn't a 2011 Silverado diesel, it's a 2000 Corvette. You don't need to be in oil and gas to afford it.

There's a multitude of reasons why I bought it now. Primarily, my expenses will never be lower. I don't have a mortgage, I don't have a family, I don't have another debt/payment in the world outside of living expenses (rent, insurance, phone, etc.) By the time I'm done paying for this car I'll be 25. I've wanted one since I was about 5 years old, and try squeezing it into the budget when you have a mortgage, a family, and kids.

That thing is sweet, and great for a young bachelor. Only potential issue I see is wintertime if you live up North, I had a friend with a hatch-back jeep that owned a whole other car for the bad weather.

It won't leave the garage or even be insured during the winter months. I still have my truck and will be using that as a daily driver, no way that car could or should handle Canadian winters.
