I have been obsessed about cars since I was a kid. The only person in my family. They all think I'm crazy. I used to be able to quote every engine displacement, HP rating and ft lb for every car sold in the US when I was young in the sixties and seventies. I could even tell every American make, at night, based on their headlights, from a distance. Is that obsessed? Yup. Too old to do any of that now and I'm only 57. But still too old.
I have now finally reached an income and worth point where I could actually drop 135K on a car and I chose the MS to do it. It has been a dream of mine to own the "ultimate car", in my opinion, and now I do. So I am thrilled beyond belief.
It really is like being 18 again and I love it. All my friends think I am a freak. But they are also insanely jealous.
My other half tells me that. I'm the car buff and get asked what car this or that is if I don't yell it out. But I pale in comparison to you two. My obsession doesn't run nearly as deep. Well, until the MS. I never thought I would be in a position in life to own such a car! My "big deal" in the family is that I now own an American car. Our family had sworn off of them years ago after problems will multiple cars which culminated in a very bad experience with a Buick. But I remember being a teenager and taking my uncle's Camaro out and loving it. I dreamt that some day I would have a worthy car and now I do!
I was just posting in another thread and noticed my avatar said 1,999 posts. I just had to come and dedicate my 2,000th post to the camaraderie started here! Hopefully someday I get to meet some of you!
