My neighbor's new car: - Page 4

post #46 of 67
Well, that Porsche isn't even a Turbo or GT2. If he was so inclined to go the naturally aspirated route it should have been no less than a GT3. Small timer...

But in all seriousness how large is this guy's fleet?

Any insights / lessons into your last comment about young professionals from either yourself or your neighbour's experiences?

Only comment I would make is to not get very highly leveraged unless you are a risk taker and/or prepared to suffer the consequences if things go South.

on a side note whats up with all the criticising of the guys fleet.like the saying goes "DONT HATE.APPRECIATE"
the guy obviously knows what hes doing has great taste and hes mixing it up,at least hes not a douche like seinfeld who owns the same fucking cars (911 turbo) in what 14 different colors?
the man is obviously enjoying a lil bit of eveything each manufacturer has to offer.good for him.and those criticising get back in your Hondas or Camrys

Rule: Anyone who owns a 959, could never be considered a douche.

If I had cars like that I wouldn't just be parking them in my driveway (and I'd have a much nicer house!) I think he has great taste in wheels

Some spend it on cars, some on homes, some on both and many others on all sorts of things.

My neighbor calls me UTR ( Under the radar ) because I drive an old piece of shit.

But there are reasons why I do this.

I knew a man who was mega wealthy and drove new Ford LTDs.

What did he do with his money?

He endowed a very large number of scholarships at his alma mater.

And he was one heck of a guy. It gave him much more pleasure to see a kid who otherwise wouldn't have had a chance, become a Doctor or Lawyer. Different strokes for different folks.

Priorities change too, as you get older. At least IMO.

Duh, he does park a couple in the garage of course. But I can see why he doesn't want to be photographed nor have his garage or license plates photographed.

Neither would I, would you?

This is a very good too. I think it's called the Warren Buffett approach.

So I guess you'll photograph the Ferrari(s) when it's their turn outside. There is a Bentley too right?

What the hell are you talking about? We're poking fun at his fleet because that's what this thread started out as. Try again internet tough guy

Another internet tough guy. Bravo!!!

It's probably the high point of your day.

Can you read? Did you see where I was talking to him about business and workouts with Wells Fargo!

Did it ever occur to you that neither he nor I would want to be photographed with our cars ( though I did photograph myself in a friends Duesenberg ).

Be very careful!!!! I can track you down through your IPO and it's possible to secretly film your fleet of cars and your family. Don't jerk off though. That would be very messy to secretly film and post on the internet.

You've also ruined it for others. Yes, he really does have Ferraris and Bentleys. But I'm not going to post pictures of them ( though he had no problem with it, as long as the license plate was not shown and he was not photographed ).
