wow. can't it just be the guy has more money and passion that you? these are passion purchases - looking at these like a bond or stock makes me think you are a speculator as opposed to an enthusiast? a primary residence fits your description exactly but are you going to tell a wealthy person they are foolish to pay 1500+ sqft for prime properties? platini you really sound bitter or maybe jealous. if God decides to take us all tomorrow I think dying with a ferrari at any price is better than dying without one. given your description one wld never buy a car, even at a "low" price. what cars have you owned that keep you from being a greater fool?
