Willy\'s money

Hey I'm new to the board and I noticed that bad ass truck that willyswanter is building.(it's obviously hard to miss)I got to searching about it to see it from the beginning and I noticed that this kid is only 21 years old and he has all this money to build this truck, a whole other trail rig, his own cnc mill!!!, and a huge house. Did he win the lotto or his daddy just rich as hell?? Not trying to start trouble just curious.

Re: Willy\'s money

Well appartently he is no different than us. He works fixing and selling houses and uses that money to support his habits. He spends money to do bad assed stuff while others have families or just like to eat. He also finds deals and he sells stuff he makes.
BTW Willy's are you going to fab up a new front bumper? Let me know if you want to get rid of the current one, or if you run across a 14 bolt.
Peace.

Re: Willy\'s money

I don't communicate with Jason outside of ORC but I think I've got a firm grasp as to how he can afford it. Jason is just as frugle (or shall I say prudent) as I am. We both watch our money like hawks. It's easy to save money when you know where it's going all the time. It's even easier when you care to do some research to get the best deal. I suspect he's also like me, he had the original money he invested into automobiles and tools when he was younger.

I live pretty comfortably on $9,000/year and that includes my house payment and some money going back into remodeling the house. It's pretty easy to live on that when you don't party or dine out all the time. I don't know how much money Jason goes through but I know he has better income than I do. He's into the old fart national past time of buying houses, fixing them up, and selling them for more. The only problem is that his money isn't stable. He also goes to school. So you can figure he doesn't have a lot of free time.

Re: Willy\'s money

I have a hunch Jason is a drug dealer... [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] J/K
It really is easy to save... Hell I had almost 24,000 before I bought my truck and I was 19.... not to brag just my 13 years of age to current savings and I dont have bills.

Re: Willy\'s money

Lol, uh, this is a funny thread...

Nope, I did not win the lotto.

Nope, my daddy is not rich as hell.

Nope, don't live in a huge house, I live in a very small house, under 900 square feet.

My job is being a student and buying older homes and remodeling them and selling them and/or leasing them. I make minimum wage at 40 hours per week... However, I do get a bonus quarterly which consists of 25% of total profit on house sales over that period of time.

How do I afford such things? Easy, I have no life... I don't go out to the movies, I don't go out to dinner, I don't buy nuttin! Except the occasional Burder King chicken ceaser salad... You would be amazed at how much money can be saved if you don't go out partying and such every weekend... Or go anywhere period!

Nope, no loans, except on houses, and hopefully soon a truck payment for a nice 94-98 dodge cummins 3500 dually... (dream for someday).

What can I say, I'm financially efficient... You know, if you skip eating every other day you can save like $100 a week?

Also, a question that came up on another forum, how can I afford to do a project like the 4 link and tube bed... Well, I can't, unless I accumulate parts slowly. I've been collecting parts for over a year for this and just recently got them all and started work.

Re: Willy\'s money

ice made some damn good money this year, I have a few hobbies, wich include the truck, hunting, snowboarding, hunting and girls that burns up alot of money, I wont say how much I make but it is decent but not so decent that I could just get everything all at ounce or even half as fast as jason does. but I guess if I had one hobby and didnt like drinkn beeer I could make more money go towards the truck.
