If you plan on buying a used car, DO IT NOW. . .greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
Flooded cars will be foisted off on customers all over the country by unscrupulous dealers, reported WRAL-TV (Raleigh) today. I remember this happening after Betsy, Camille, and other storms/floods. Since some of you have mentioned getting another car before rollover, you might want to do it now, rather than get stuck with a rustbucket a little later. The story hasn't been posted to the site yet; if it is, I'll add it below.

Why buy a car at all? Gas will be through the roof next year, if you can get it. people will be going bankrupt. cars will be cheap.
use the money to buy gold and preps now, and a couple of mountain bikes!
