The article was going on about how "he can't imagine people not using the things they buy" etc. I was thinking "BUT HE DOESN'T ******* OWN THE CAR YET!!!" the whole time. Leaving your job and responsibilities behind to roam the earth in a pasta rocket is equally alien to my way of thinking.

Honestly, yeah. I kind of envy that guy. Thought about doing exactly this thing many times (except with a VW bus.)

If I'm ever diagnosed with something terminal, this is exactly what I am going to do.

I'd do a vette or Ultima GTR instead. It depends if I want AC or not. I would not expect a Lambo to make it home with its shitty reliability record.

I love is quote:
Quote:
All that driving does have a price and now the car has even less value. After all the hard driving and long miles, the timing chain stretched, crunching the valves and turning the car into an exotic and expensive paperweight. The car is now worth less than he owes on it and the bank refuses to grant him another loan.
1. What a raging piece of ****. Its 2010 and a $180k car can't last 100k miles?
2. why not take it to a machine shop and build the motor? My machinist recently charged $12k to rebuild an F360 with total melt-down
3. You don't need to finance another car, fucktard. But a $1500 car or hell, a $10k turbo Miata. You must finance an expensive car...MUST!!!

This guy did something pretty legit. He drove around for three years in a Lamborghini, ******* strippers, drinking and probably snorting a respectable amount of cocaine. Who doesn't want to do that? I mean, it sucks that he's painted himself into a financial corner, but if worst comes to worst, call the bank and tell 'em they can come get it. I'm sure his credit score is already beshitted.

The reason the timing belt took a **** is because they're supposed to be replaced after 60k miles. OF COURSE if you don't follow service recommendations, there will be a catastrophic failure. I wonder if he ever changed the oil.
