How about a nice bailout?

Currently driving a 25 year-old (1996, built in 1995) )Tacoma, and browsing online for a '96-'02 Tacoma, because holy balls they last forever and I know how to work on them.

New car? In my dreams. =\

They need to focus on accessories now, like cow pushers, heavy plating and gun turrets.

That's a lot of bottle caps.

Collapsing car sales will unnoticeable amongst the crashing real estate.

Mad Max didn't have to worry about a car note, and neither will we.

I need a new vehicle. I wonder if low key coughing will help me get a better deal or not.

Cars are terribly overpriced to begin with.

I guess this is a good time to be selling directly to customers, instead of them having to visit dealerships and endure the idiots that pass for salespeople.  And while you are at it, maybe make cars that don't require oil changes, frequent maintenance, etc.

/do not own a Tesla

Car makers are a liberal hoax trying to unseat President Trump

Will Covid kill a lot of Baby Boomer owners of classic 1970's era muscle cars?

Just curious although wouldn't mind picking one up for cheap.

How about not having median new car sales prices hovering around $37000 so people can actually, you know, AFFORD to buy cars.

I'd rather they experienced a slump. I could use a new car but I'm too cheap to buy one. This might bring about a lower price and 0% interest for 3 years.

I'd rather (if someone passed) I got a nice 1954 Kaiser Manhattan, supercharged.

On the one hand, people may not be eager to buy new cars if their income is not secure.  On the other hand, your car may be one of the safest coronavirus-free places to be.

Meanwhile, I'm in the market for a car, and now I may be able to get a better deal.

/silver lining?
