if he or any other famous, wealthy person were smart he'd spend very little money and buy cheap items anyway. wealthy people do little to make their mark outside of what makes them famous. why can't one build a nature park, open a homeless shelter, or start a cooperative farm? or buy a town run on natural energy with rules of kindness and respect? now that would be awesome. ellen gives away money on her show often, an act of kindness, however i am not sure if it comes out of pocket. also, how come ellen doesn't do lesbian topics?

And THAT'S why a guy like him will be successful. It's not what you make, it's what you keep.
Dude's my hero.

I had a 91 Honda Accord that finally stopped, after 510,000 miles. The original engine. It was the best car I've ever owned.

My !992 Subaru Legacy has 408,+++ miles and still running strong, my goal is to run it for 500,000 miles and take it to a Subaru dealer and ask them to use it for advertising purpose. Hope they might give me a good rebate on a new Subaru.

I buy almost everything except food and clothing from online auctions most people aren’t aware of the almost I unbelievable deals that they can get from online auction sites the site that has the best deals is http://saveblast.com

I checked with the BBB and was told that it is all legit. How they can sell gift cards, laptops, cameras, and all kinds of goodies that we all want for 50-90% off, I don’t know I do know that I bought my son an ipad there for less than $100 and my husband a $250 Low gift

cards for $48Why would I even think about shopping anyþlace else?

SO what; he sounds smart to me; a lot of people are always in debt, to pay off a vehicle, just to "keep up with the Joneses", so to speak. I drive a 21 year old Volvo Wagon. I have to maintain it, but I have a great, local Volvo mechanic who takes good car of the car, and it runs like a top. And my insurance is affordable, and I have no car payment. Plus, it has a ton of room in it; I can even sleep in the back if I put the rear seats down.

Nothing wrong with driving an old car! I drive a '02 Honda Civic handed down from my father-in-law who bought it new. I do my own maintenance so there's minimal maintenance costs, no depreciation, low insurance ($25/month from Insurance Panda) and registration costs, no car wash expenses (I park it outside when it's raining) and people think twice before trying to cut in front of me. It's a comfortable ride on the highway but is also nimble on dirt roads. I could easily afford a new car but then I'd have to fuss about dents, scratches, car washes and all those other costs. It's got a 3.1L V6 that achieves 30 mpg on the highway. As long as it continues to pass smog it's a keeper.

sexual sin and greed leads to Hell. Follow JESUS, not satan. Be sober, don't curse, smoke, gamble or lie, for you JESUS died. Be forgiven and baptized (share this with others)

He has the same car but also owns a private jet. Yeah, not impressed.

Suzie Orman only owns one pair of earring but has five houses. That's not being humble or frugal; it's picking priorities.

I can respect this wholeheartedly.


I bet that car reminds him every day of where his roots are and keeps him grounded in reality a bit more than other successful artists.

250,000 miles is just a baby. I have a 2005 Prius with going on 470,000 miles, and headed towards the 500,000 mile mark. My Toyota Prius has taken a beating, and keeps on going. Love the car and will keep it till it can't run anymore.

I can relate to Ludacris' love for his vehicle. My 96 Grand Am is turning 300,000 miles. She has hit two deer. Her only issue is on her door where a 90 yr. old man hit her. Once repaired, rust developed on that door. I named her Zip (she zips everywhere), Wort Hog (her ugly rust spots covered with epoxy), Deer Slayer (one nine point buck and later a doe)! Good for him keeping a great piece of machinery.

Ludacris,
You are my kind of guy. I own a 1991 Acura Legend LS and its still in mint condition. Not quite as many miles as yours (its my Sunday Car - 75,000 miles). I too will never get rid of my car.

This just goes to prove that in the end times men would call good evil, and evil good. Where else can a thug that spreads hate through what is called "music", become a millionaire, and then get accolades for being so "humble" for keeping a car with high mileage, while jet setting in a world of debauchery? Way to go leudacris, you are the epitome of what's wrong with this country. And BTW, keep your shirt on...no one wants to look at your abs that you get from the money and free time that comes from ill-gotten gain...
