Santana Moss gives advice on buying your first car

Santana Moss gives advice on buying your first car

Alfred Moris (#46, RB, Washington Redskins) still rocks his 1990 Mazda, named ‘Bentley,’ to and from Practice.  Unfortunately, Santana Moss has not had such luck luck with his first car purchase – a $500 piece of junk that broke down his senior year of college, with his pregnant girlfriend riding shotgun. 


While he couldn’t recall the number of times he had to call a friend with jumper cables to bail him out, he distinctly remembered the day it was time to give up on his first car.

“I remember my senior year of college when I was about to have my son, it broke down on me and my girl. That was a wrap. I was pushing it to the side of the road with my pregnant girlfriend in the car. A fan jumped out of his car to help me push my car. I went home and told my dad I wanted a new car.”

Even though he knew that he was about to be taken in the NFL Draft, Moss knew that he needed to get a new car ASAP.

“[My] dad said wait until you get drafted to get a car,” he told me. “But I said ‘dad I need to get something for now.’ I fixed the other car up and sold it and actually got some money off of it.”

Morale of the story—you get what you pay for.

“That’s why you don’t pay 500 bucks for a car.”
