You need to make up your mind -- are you using take home pay as your number, or are you using gross income? Which number did the Ramsey budget use?

But even then, the question is, can a person really save money by avoiding old cars and sticking with a monthly payment?
Transportation costs money. The simplest way to think about it is cost per mile.
