So I have the option to buy a 1972 type 2 vw bus in fantastic condition. Virtually rust free, new interior, 100k miles, and the engine runs great. Now I've always wanted to road trip with my buddies or my girlfriend across NE or across the country to California, and this could be the car to do it. The only problem is that it is $10k, and realistically not the most practical everyday car for me. Now, I am at boarding school and only need a car during the summer, which makes the van seem a bit more reasonable as I'd only really be using it in the summer.
So my question is ns, do I spend all my money on the van and road trip across the country, or spend maybe 2k on a more reliable, practical car, and still have money left over? Obviously I want the van, but am I making a mistake? Help me out
