We're pushing 18 years without debt. Married 25 years Nov 4th. A big part of that was recycling cars that were damaged and written off by insurance companies. You would be amazed by amount of damage some cars incur and are totalled. My first rebuild was 1973, a 66 Chevy van that had 42 kmiles, bought for $300.

Over 4 decades I have rebuilt, or had rebuilt, over 150 cars. My Fiesta is the latest one. It had no broken glass, no air bags deployed and no significant suspension or structural damage. The only parts available were OEM. It took my buddies shop 6 months to fix the car.
