Wow. Okay, it's great that you are weighing in but I think you've made some big generalizations here. You really believe that all men want is sex? I would beg to differ (and I am female). :) ~ Ed.

It's from the movie vaguely referenced in the story...Flyboys. The movie is alright; the actress is wow.

Hi Helena, sorry about that! It is our policy to do so. The credit at the bottom points to JD Hancock's Flickr page. Can you email the correct credit link to write@elephantjournal.com? I will definitely add it in.

Thanks,

Amen--technically, you are 100% correct, but I think we can agree it's rather old-fashioned conventional thinking. Assets that suck money and depreciate rapidly are assets, but not in the way a block of gold is, say.

This is under #4 among the Frugal Principles: not how cars are discussed as liabilities, not assets: "No debt unless it's for an Asset. An asset increases in value, like property long term. Or possibly, if you have the skill or the smarts, a business venture - assuming you can risk losing out. A car is not an asset. For me, shares, gold, and silver are risky. Also, buy your liabilities (car, computer etc) with cash only. Or interest free over years if you want, if it's an option and the payments fit your budget and are automatic. NOTE: Some credit cards offer benefits to use, and if you know you have the discipline to pay them early then that's fine, you get my drift anyway."

For those who've read Rich Dad, Poor Dad, you might join me in viewing a car as a rapidly depreciating (in most, not all cases) asset that we pour money into...kinda a liability. :)

Humph. I think I was remembering what Rich Dad, Poor Dad said. With thanks! It's a rapidly depreciating (in most, not all cases) asset that we pour money into...kinda a liability. :)

Alyssa Zulueta Gotta say, as a parent of 2 young kids with autism, a car is pretty much a necessity. Especially when we lived in Los Angeles, with its not-always-reliable public transportation. Dropping one off at speech therapy, taking the other to occupational therapy 6 miles away, then picking the first child up, driving back to pick up the second...it never would've worked.
I also contract out as a teacher and coach, which means clients in different cities. Again, really need a car to get to work on time.

Elephant Journal Oh, for sure--none of anything can apply to everyone. Love to you and yours. That said, if bikes and public transport were as strong as in, say, Stockholm, it might be easier--and cheaper. The lack of practical public transport in cities such as LA is part of the problem that this post addresses.

Bethany Ann Hagensen The car thing depends on where you live and how many others depend on you for transport. (ie, parents, people who are caretakers, etc) I never needed a car when I lived in a big city, but now I don't have full bus service so the car is essential.

Elephant Journal Amen--that's part of the point--in cities designed for humans, traffic is less of a problem. With fast and reliable and beautiful public transport and bike paths, folks are healthier and those needing cars (as I mention, car shares are amazing, say, in Denver) would have less traffic to contend with.

Elephant Journal We're talking about single ownership and driving of cars. More generally, what's vital is effective, affordable transportation. If there was amazing public transport and car share where you were, you could use cars and public transport and save time and money, both!
