By doing this, the ownership of a fine car becomes relatively inexpensive. Much less expensive, in terms of utility vs expense, than buying a lot of high end photographic equipment.

Total cost when new: >60k
My cost @83k miles with all details taken care of and a couple of upgrades: 18k.

Still purring along nicely at 120K miles.


An excellent choice which of course leaves you more disposable income vs buy a new 30K+ vehicle

Trying to see something new whither I'm visiting someplace new or a place that I've visited many a time before.
