Default Should I hit it?

What do you guys and gals think? Should I hit it? Just sold my 1999, got a raise, am getting a mediocre bonus, and I miss my L67 (power-wise, but not the poor 20-23 mpg average freeway -rarely saw 26-27 mpg when extremely grannied).
Anyhow, I decided against the 2002 40th Anniv. GTP -they wanted $18,500 and KBB Dealer retail was only $15,xxx.

Here'* the deal. I saw it for sale about 1.5 months ago for the same price -I wonder if I'd be able to drive away for $4500'ish.

The link doesnt get me anywhere helpful to see the car. All i get is the main car soup page i guess. Maybe its just my crappy computer.

To get the link to work, click on the link the first time, then pick your home state. Click on the link a second time and the link should come up normally.

There'* a reason you sold the 99, school. There'* a reason you have a 94.

Save the money.

School is more important. You need the education to fund the cars for the rest of your life. Cars will always come and go.

But the education will last a lifetime...not just 10 years!

I guess it'* all in prospective and what you prioritize. Me...cars weren't it in college. Grades and paying for school (without financial aid) were key!

I never went to college, so I digress. The ultimate would be to just keep a car that'* paid for.
