My Over $10,000.00 Purchase Essay, Research Paper
I have given some thought to a big purchase after I get out of college. It will probably be a new car. I have always loved Volkswagens , and I think I would like to purchase a New Beetle.
I own a 1961 VW Beetle, also known as a type 1. It is Cherry Red, and that is why I picked a New Beetle the same color. Through a lot of looking I have found a Cherry Red, 1998 VW New Beetle.
It has 3,923 miles, power windows, locks, brakes, and tilt steering wheel. It also includes a sports pack. Which is alloy rims, rapped in 15 inch Michelins and a chrome dress up kit for the engine and exterior along with wood dress for the interior. You gain some speed with some help from a racing series transmission, from Empi motor sports.
The price is $18,495, plus 6% sales tax. Taking the car to a total of $19,604. But, remember that in the state of PA it is illegal to drive without insurance on you automobile. So, I have added another $1,200 for a year of insurance. This car is rated as THE safest compact car on the road today. Provided by dual side airbags and passenger/drivers side airbags too. And with every car is a factory installed security system.
With the price of insurance, sales tax, plus the purchase price, the total is a whopping $20,804. How may he buy that you say? Well, my great grandmother (god rest her soul) has left me $25,000 to do what I may with.
I will only be spending a fraction of the money so, I have thought about installing a decal kit on the body along with a ground effects kit. This will take a little money. It racks up to $2,370.
I have even thought about sticking a nice stereo system in it so I can rock and drive. It will probably be a Rockford system with enough speakers and amps to lift me off the ground.
I think that I made a very good decision on the type of car I chose. Not only is it a very efficient car, but it is safe and secure too. With the decal kit and stereo I might even have a car that is worthy of a few bug jams or two. In all, I think I made a good investment. So if you decide to purchase a new car, always remember,
