Try buying a car with cash.
An old farmer I know did, and the cops showed up a few minutes later. He had bought cars with cash for decades.
It is now illegal to use cash, or not finance large purchases.

Yeah, if that $10,000 had kept up with inflation, it would be $50,000 now. Or something like that...
Wait’ll $10,000 is your typical monthly rent. That’ll be fun. :-)

I still use cash for a lot. But I’m a stubborn SOB...

Care to expand on this interesting anecdote?
How the heck would the polices know about the transaction?

Farmers in the 70’s and 80’s would often carry 10-15 thousand on them in E.Tennessee.
You never knew when a deal would come along.
They also carried guns with narry a permit.
