Ok, I leave for basic training(Air Force) Dec. 8 and i wanted to order a 2SS Camaro before i leave so when i get back it'll be here waiting for me in my driveway.....when would you think it'll be the best time to order it i have the money to order it now but will barely meet the car note and insurance with my current job but i was plan on getting a little side job if i do decide on ordering it now. So what would you do if you were in my shoes?!
Not to be a harda**, but your not an Airman yet. The base monthly pay for an E1 with less than 4 month of active duty is $1,294.50, don't know what kind of contract that you may have with the Air Force, but let's say for argument sake that you come out of basic and are an E3, that is 1,649.00 per month before taxes and other BAQ, COMRATS, etc, if you rate the addtional income.
With a 4 year note and and only financing 31,500, say with around a 5% note, your at $720.00, without insurance, gas, etc. Go 54, 60, 72 months, and it will look better, the fact is that if your just joining the miltary and your a boot, you don't know where you will be stationed, or if you'll make it through to become an active duty service member.
If I were to join the military, I would save my money, ensure that I made it through your "basic training", figure out where your school and follow on duty station will be, and then make a choice.
Now with that said, if your parents are wealthy, or if you hit the lottery and wanted to join the service, buy what the hell you want, if your going to try and make your way in life, do it smart.
