Anyone looking to make a great buy on a new Nissan or Hyundai?

Depends on the car you are looking to purchase. Many new vehicles have rebates-these rebates take place of your negative equity on your present vehicle. Lease programs have also known to help out.When you lease--you turn the car in and the end. All your negative equity is absorbed throughout this term of your new vehicle and you get a fresh start for your next vehicle.

I have a 1967 Dodge Polara and a 1971 Pontiac Firebird, where can I find potential buyers?

You become what is called up-side down. You'll be better off trying to pay down the note, if you can, prior to trading. You loose leverage when you are upside down. You won't be getting the best deal. Independence is gained by being able to go in & pay cash. It takes a lot of discipline & doing with out when your friends are driving nic cars & your in a clunker. But its worth in the end. Save. Save. Save.

I want to lease a car but.?

Yes you are stuck. This is the result of too long financing period for the pay back. I always recommend no longer than 5 year and preferably 3-4 year loans on autos. I have heard of 7 year notes (they will get you in trouble). If you will drive the car for another year, you might be able to close up the gap some. Otherwise, you will suffer a $4000 + interest loss on the car you trade in if you can get financing for the other car plus the left over $4000. I would recommend that you tough it a little longer to get the principal down so that you can trade it in under more favorable conditions. I know that's not what you want to hear, but it make better financial sense.
