Getting on the road and ready to go!
The sum to spend is $25,000:
$17,000 – Used Car in Excellent Condition
$6,000 – Insurance for 1 Year as a New Driver
$2,000 – Gas Card
∴ With a bonus sum of $25,000 at the ready, I would get a used car that was in excellent condition, cover my insurance for a year, and get a hand dandy gas card to make the tootling around with my Family possible. Woot!
