At What Price Do You Start Worrying About The Cost Of Gasoline?
#21
I'm of the mind that now that I have the car that I've dreamt of all my life, and have it in the shape that I've always wanted it, I'll drive it as often as I want regardless of the price of gas. If I have to give up something else, so be it. Driving on PA and West Virginia mountain roads is my idea of a vacation and my wife enjoys it as much as I do, following me in her Buick GS 455. Livin' the dream!

That also reminds me of last year when I pulled up to a storefront in the Mach 1 and a guy was walking towards the car with his girlfriend. She exclaimed, "Wow! Nice car!" I said thank you and her boyfriend said "I'll bet that's really bad on gas, huh?" I said, "Gas is $4.00 a gallon, wouldn't you pay $4.00 to drive this thing 8 miles".

His girlfriend blurted out, "I would!"

I smiled at him, rested my case and walked into the store.

$4. or $5 doesn't matter if these cars are a passion and you are passionate about them you pay the price because that's what money is for. When you die somebody else will be spending your money so why worry about saving it for them. They'll probably be driving your car too. Live for the Now.

If your hobby (OK, obsession) does not keep you poor, you don't like your hobby.
