I sold two collector cars i owned and used the money for my 05.
I don't think there's a big advantage to have the cash on a purchase. As someone else mentioned the dealer usually gets a kickback if you finance so they would rather you finance.
I see all these car shows on cable. They are always dealing in green cash. Now why do you think they are doing that?? Non traceable for tax purposes perhaps. Otherwise whats the difference cash or check?
Sold my big house, paid off all my cars, furniture, cards, everything. It appears you have to have something financed to maintain a decent credit score, so I financed a portion of the R. This November, after a full year, that will change. Wonder what will go on the books next time?
