Ben is looking to buy a car, but as a graduating PhD student, he’s broke. A friend suggested he buy a used police car for $400-$1200. Is this wise? Tom and Ray are concerned that the engines might not be in the best shape, because police cars are running all the time. If Ben can afford to replace the engine, or has a friend who can look at the engine, he should be okay. The rest of the car is probably fine.
