no way am I dropping $30K or more
FWIW, the new base model lowered the price, and with federal $7500 credit and $2000 more here in MD, the base retail price is just $20,250.
And that's before wheeling and dealing.
Not bad - it's cheaper than a Prius or Civic hybrid now.

I will take 25. I should be good for 2, assuming I can count whatever my son ends up getting (since we likely will help, and he is part of the fleet now!). and I highly doubt I keep what I have now when that happens.

just heard from my BIL that his S2000 is going to be available in a couple months. Whatever the first year was (he got one of the very fist in the country). If you want one, this is it. Low miles, babied, never seen rain. Like new, completely stock.
I will pass, for a few reasons ($$ of course, and frankly it is a bit tight for me!). Mostly $$.
Not sure yet what he is getting instead (he has been fixated on Porsche turbos and Cobra kit cars recently). I asked if he bought something at B-J (he was just there for the auction) and he said sort of, not exactly.
turns out, he bought a superformance mkIII cobra. already built, with only 540 miles on it. Can't wait to hustle a drive of that!

I've updated my master tracking document to include the guesses from each of us.
12/17/12 mark156 2013 Honda CR-V EXL w/ nav
12/23/12 anon 2013 Honda Accord
01/08/13 breld 2011 BMW 335xi
01/11/13 steine13 2013 Chevrolet Cruze LT (lease)
01/15/13 breld 2010 BMW 328xi wagon
01/18/13 qbrozen 2013 Nissan Leaf (lease)
01/19/13 anon 2013 Toyota Sienna (lease)
Ateixeira 40 (or so)
Also, had a long talk with the wife today about her new job opportunity. She's not keen on having more cars than drivers (right now we're balanced at 3 of each), so it seems that a low cost lease is out.
But, depending on how much she drives and the costs and reimbursements associated with it, I suppose we could revisit the issue!

You can take off the or so part, I say 40.
If we are at 38 I could buy the last 2 cars myself. What a great excuse to buy cars!

#29513 of 32402 Punches & Predictions
Jan 23, 2013 (6:45 pm)
I think we should have a list of calendar year 2012 Punches separate from the calendar year 2013 punches. 3/22/12 I leased a 2011 BMW 328xi.
My prediction is 38 for the year
