But it's true.

I did two things yesterday that gave me an epiphany.

Boopie is turning 15 and is getting ready to start driving. So I stopped at a car dealership just to get an idea of how much a decent used car runs. I explained to the salesman that I really wasnít buying at this time, but I just wanted to get an idea of what Iím going to be looking at over the next year. There were some cars on the lot that had a good price on them and seemed to be in decent condition. After speaking with the salesman about the cars, I knew what I was going to need to be looking at when the time finally arrives.

Last night I caught the speeches from the three leading candidates for president; Obama, Clinton and McCain. I listened to them give basically the same message. It was during the last speech that I realized something.

I trust the used car salesman more than these three.

To save on insurance look to cars that old people normally drive.

Cars like the Focus, Escape and Rangers are all cars that teens drive and insurance is out of this world.

Cars that old people drive tend to be cheaper in insurance so could give you some leway in prices.

I drove a Pinto when I turned 16. But I don't wish that on anyone!

I agree. I think I trust a lot of salesmen more than I'd trust any politician.
