One of my old bosses used to drive old beater-junks to work. When one would give it's last gasp, he'd call a guy he went to to school with that owned a local junk yard and tell him to bring him a 'new' car and haul off the old one. He'd leave the title and the keys on the front seat, and the guy would bring him a 'new' beater-junk with the keys and title on the front seat. After work my boss would drive his 'new' car to the junk yard and pay for it.....usually a couple hundred bucks. He'd get 4-5 years out of each one. When he was finished with one, and it was hauled back to the junk yard, went straight to the crusher.
