Both of them are right. I don't know where you live, your age, nor your economic status, but we live in a bad time now. Money earned is money saved. Personally, I don't know whether I have a job next week. Lucky for me, I don't have debt. Enjoy the time where you don't have debt and save money.
Also, RWD is the way to go. I'd grab an older Mustang, boost it to 400 hp and call it a day. Other than that, save your pennies.
