Chris,

Your words are true and correct. The problem is not philosophical, however. This problem we are discussing is emotional. People WANT these cars, nobody needs these cars. It's irrational and predictable: A guy wants a Porsche...he gets a Porsche, then he wants to fix it up and finds out the true cost when it's too late...he's sunk money into the inital purchase and can't give up, good money goes after bad. Then you see the add: "Decent Porsche, needs work. Good project car." What the guy is really selling is his dream. It is my worthless opinion that there are many, many more guys out there with too little money than thee are with too much. It's not so simple as deciding where to eat dinner. It's frustration, impatience and the good ole' American rat race. My project has taught me very painfully about patience and how utterly, absurdly materialistic I am and how utterly, absurdley materialistic we all are...Oops, are my 50 minutes up already, doctor?.
