so-called reality shows where there are guys building and rebuilding cars and selling them for outrageous money.
I really don't understand why someone wants a '63 Chevy Bel Air for tens of thousands. But then again, I suppose if I had one I would sell it to buy something a little more reliable.
I also see cars at auctions selling for enough money for a guy like me to retire on and wonder why. Then again, enter people like Jay Leno who likes machinery and collects cars. I suppose if that's your passion, then follow it.
Still, I ask myself what I would do with some kind of $80,000 hot rod. I couldn't really drive it to work and it would be a nuisance for me to keep in the garage.
I suppose I really don't have a whole lot of room to wonder, though because I do have a Miata I bought for $1200 sitting in the garage. I did put a few small things into it but no real money. I take it out in the summertime sometimes.
I guess stuff like that is about comfort zones. I sure would not want an expensive hot rod in the garage, but I'm comfortable with the Miata.
Then again, I wonder what I would have if I was really rich and I generally think it would be the same Miata except maybe I'd have it fixed up a little nicer.
I'd still drive a Tacoma, though. I like them and really would not care for a behemoth of a vehicle. A fairly small pickup is good enough for me.
Then maybe I really am rich because I seem to have just about everything I want.
