I find this hilarious for some reason.

Cars are a horrible investment. In fact they are not an investment at all, just an expense...overhead.
There was a book written several years ago called, "The Millionaire Next Door". This book was an empirical study of the habits of the wealthy -- and note, there is a key distinction between people who are wealthy and people who just have high incomes. One of the points it made was that actual millionaires seldom drive very expensive cars. In fact, they seldom buy new cars of any kind as they prefer buying used cars that are 2-3 years old.
You don't want to know what it said about clothes.
