The same vehicles we currently own. We are content with them and see no reason to change.

Whatever works D.

    Maybe her kids are teenagers and aren't included in financial business.

    Maybe her kids are grown, lazy folk.

    It's her money--not the kids.

    I just re-read your post--she could be a single parent looking out for her kids long range.

    She can do nice things for them and not tell them the source of the money.

    I Agree!- one never knows. Perhaps the kids are as dumb as they come.

      I never got around to having kids myself but my sister has kids four of them ranging from 22 years to 10 years old.  I like to be known as the good uncle so I would buy them nice things but try not to tell them were the money came from.-weshar75

        I haven't seen or spoken to my kid in about 4 years. She already managed to get herself cut out of her grandparents $800K will & they already spent her college fund touring Europe. Two years ago they wanted to buy her a new car. She couldn't even be bothered to reply to emails about it, so that didn't happen either. She hasn't even graduated HS yet.

        That's rough,  hope it all works out in the end Rexer90.
