    Re: What does everyone do for a living to afford their CTS?

    Well, I own an engineered equipment sales business that I started 20 years ago. And I have been truly blessed, with a daughter graduating in creative advertising from the U of Texas and then getting married, and a son graduating in mechanical engineering [with a full out of state scholarship to the U of Texas] and a son that's tried college and is getting ready to join the Navy. I drive about 35-40k miles/year in my job, and I bought the V because I love high performance cars. But I only paid $25k for it with 4k miles off of e-bay. It had a blown motor, but the remainder of the car is absolutely perfect-not even a parking lot ding. I would never have spent $51k plus on a car that I'll keep 4-5 years and put 200k miles on. My goal for the car is 400 rwhp, 30 mpg on the highway and using 87 octane. After the new motor is put in next week and I get a few miles on her, I'll chassis dyno to get a baseline, and start with the mods, with additional dynos as I progress. We'll see how close I can get. It's gonna be fun! But the best part is that I've been married to the same wonderful lady for 31 years-and she let me buy the V to fix up!!!

    Coreyn,
    No really not a tough crowd. Sometimes it can be fun reading some of the silliness that gets posted and we let them run rampant :madtalkin
    My only objections are when individuals use foul language or get nasty and tasteless toward other posts. When I see it happen I wait to see if it continues. If it does I move to other threads. At another Forum Site several complained to the Forum Administrator. They locked down the thread, booted the member from the forum.

    Personally, I think most of our members are really great people

    The insurance in NJ sucks because half the people can't drive or should not have their license! Hopefully this wont lead to a ....how much do you pay for your insurance forum. But if this helps i swapped my 2002 gmc envoy to the 2005 cts 3.6 and my insurance went up $ 600.00. I m 29 and my wife is 32 and she drives a 2002 nissan altima se.

    Re: What does everyone do for a living to afford their CTS?

    I'm sorry that you do not know the REAL reason the car insurance in NJ sucks! The answer is Christine Whitman, your former 2 term governor! When she was elected the 1st time, she immediately fired the person who was at the head of NJ Auto insurance regulation. In his place, she named a person who had just retired from the presidency of one of the largest auto insurance underwriters in the state. This the person she named to head up the auto insurance in the state. Within a few months, this person asked the state for an across the board auto insurance rate hike. Whitman granted it immediately, without further comment. Said person, remember he's FROM the insurance industry, was president of a huge insurance company and has PAY BACKS!! Within a few months he once again asked for a unilateral raise on car/truck & motorcycle insurance, and again, was granted. During the course of the next 3 years of her 1st term, he went back for raises EIGHT (8) times in total. Whitman granted each one.
    By the end of her 4th term, Jerseyans were squeezed to the bone, paying $2,000 a year to insure a 8 year old Caprice, without collision and with a high deductable ! An 8 year old Chevy and a 5 year old Ford would cost the average insurred $4,000 a year, and THAT'S if they had a great driving record and lived in a low crime area.

    She won a 2nd term as she campaigned on a platform of "Insurance Reform" ~ ever hopeful, the sukkas voted her in again!!
    Her plan for reform was this:
    Allowing you to buy LESS insurance than was allowed before. Therefore it cost you less! Big F'ing deal! She never cut fees 1 cent!!! So, now about 35% of the motorists are UNDER insured!
    Then, she was named by Bush, (only because she is a faaar right ultra conservative) to his adminestration. Guess what? Even Bush could not stand her & "relivied" her of her duties somewhere around his 2nd year in office. In NJ many of us say "A.B.C." Stands for ANYBODY BUT CHRISTIE !
    She's a mega billionaire, and thinks that everyone has her kinda of wealth and has hoards of friends who "need favors", and she's only too happy to oblige, using $30,000 a year income population to pay for those favors!

    ....and THAT'S the REAL reason yours & mine are so high! Now, we FINALLY have a great (incoming) Governor in Mr. Codey. Nobody owns him, and he 100% for the taxpayer!
