    I know, i know if you have to ask its too much, but......

    I recently totalled my 98' T/a that was putting down roughly 375 to the ground. I plan on getting a vette, but for now a bucket to get me from pt.A to pt.B. Im a 20 something college student going from waiting tables 25k-30k a year to a new commision based job hopefully making 50k-60k a year. What do you do and/or make annually to afford your vette plus mods? I'm curious what a comfortable salary I would have to earn to afford a vette.

    Thanks for any help

    115 wow, I always wondered if Id channel my inner Steve McQueen while doing 100+ and lets say ''try not to get caught" but then I remember Oh yeah, "I'm not on a hollywood set". But you do have that 1% urge

    As someone who took a 100% commission job right out of college, I can only say be wary.

    It would be very unfortunate if you got the car before you had a chance to see the kind of money you'll actually be making. That being said, you sure did make good money waiting tables, IMO.

    I had a few friends that right out of college they continued to wait tables. The reason was they could make more money waiting tables than if they got a 'real' job and started their career. Eventually they realized though they were making decent money now, the amount would never change in the future. Essentially making good money now while sacrificing future earnings. Also, you're not learning or developing any new skills while you work there either. But I digress.

    Good to know you have the restaurant job to fall back on in case the sales job doesn't work out for you.

    You can get a pretty nice Vette for $20k. Insurance rates aren't too bad on the car since only old people drive them.

    For 50K you can definitley afford a vette in the price range of $35k. You can even finder for a lot less than that on a Z06
