Then that makes the decision even better. You now have ample free time and probably are already saving the equivalent of the cost of the car by not having a wife. Do it, and make a build thread.

^Yes.

Spending 65K on something that fun that also gets you laid is probably going to be the lesser financial hit relative to loosing your money in the next crash while also spending money chasing tail.

**** over-cautious BS. I got about the same return on my last projects parts as I did on the 401K I had at the same time.

OK, one more variable. I've been saving for 5 years for a boat, something in the range of 38-43 feet, flying bridge, flat panels, HVAC, etc. Sooo... what's going to get the most *****, the car or the boat with the bathtub in it? Can't have both and I can write the boat off as a second home.

Wait, you are looking at boats and worrying about a 65K car as a financial hit?

Boats and planes are the only things that cost more than cars without having a vagina.

If you like to light money on fire..then take that fire, and put it on your *********... buying a boat is the way to go.

If you like to drive cars and POSSIBLY see a return on the car.. the ultima.
