I'm 30, but I got my driver's license in spring this year. Why? Well, the fact is that I simply haven't seen the need for them. Truth be told, I went to the driving school already back in 2007 and finished it within 45 days. Then of course, when the time came to go to national exam center, I had lost the motivation again. And then 2 years later I finally got my green leaves or the beginner's license. Well, during the two years I had them, I barely drove at all. And once I had to replace them with the real license, again more than 6 months passed by before I eventually got just a a bit motivation to get it done.

Now I have had my license probably around 8 months. How much have I driven? Well...at least 1000 kilometers. Which, in any sense, is nothing at all. As I'm traveling now, just my minor bus rides within the past week have been more than that. But that's me. We're all different, we're all weird in our own ways. But one thing I know, once I buy myself a car, knowing how fast I lose motivation for things, I need to buy a car based on its potential resale value after couple of years. And the easiest way to do it, is by following Kelley Blue Book's projections. Just recently they announced their 2014 Best Resale Value Award Winners. And this year the winner of Best Resale Value Brand was Toyota and Best Resale Value Luxury Brand Lexus. I'm not sure what I think of these brands though, chances are, I'd be choosing something from the Top 10 list of individual models instead.

Here's the list for you as well:

  • Chevrolet Camaro
  • Jeep Wrangler
  • Chevrolet Corvette
  • Toyota FJ Cruiser
  • Chevrolet Silverado 1500
  • Toyota Tacoma
  • Dodge Challenger
  • Toyota Tundra
  • Honda CR-V
  • Toyota 4Runner
