Then just get your cousin with the middle life crisis to park his Bugatti in front of your business.
As a cork sniffer in our world, I think its fair to say that I do find it interesting how so many people can't fathom why someone would spend that on a car...when plenty of folks here buy the $4000 CS tele that 99% of people couldn't tell apart from a Squier.
At least girls like the Porsche.
My thinking would be that Bob is financially savvy. He might have several investments and maybe a side business that allow him to drive a car like that. This probably has little to do with how good of a plumber Bob is.
I'm kind of the opposite. I don't care about cars. I drive a beat up 16 year old Toyota. I am retired from the workforce and am self employed and have a sizable amount of investments. Many look at me driving up in my rust bucket and think I am barely scraping by. I'm thankful I don't have a Land Rover or BMW when the dog jumps in and is wet and muddy.
Bob is old school and still likes gas powered cars
*Stares* Isn't that a Tesla? Was this the crash where no one was in the driver's seat?
I had no idea you were a P-car guy (or at least aspirational) Just yesterday I entered the PCA raffle; prizes this go-round are Cayman GT4 and Cayman GTS.
I’m shopping 911s right now. I hope everyone doesn’t think worse of me when I buy one. Of course if I win the raffle I might not need the 911 for a while
Not my business.
I've loved Porsches since I were a lad. Unfortunately, I went straight from poor to driving the kids in a minivan.
There's always the lottery, but yeah, I like the 718's with the NA 4.0
1973 Porsche 911S for my Lotto win.
annnnddddd, you'll come over and take a look at my PTrap?
Great choice. I had a lot of seat time in one, lucky me back in 79-80. Value on those has gone parabolic in the last few years
Which leads to another thought: Perhaps Plumber Bob is a wise investor who picked up a 2010-12 Carrera S which has hit the bottom of its depreciation cycle and is now going up in value
If the issue is at your Cabin, I can always drive my 4 wheel drive 71 Bronco up with the parts needed to fix it. Haven't been up to Mono Hot Springs in a long time.
Bob is on the TDP
as he is driving.
Amazingly great response! Prepare yourself before you come though, it is a whole different landscape after last summer....
Vintage? Two words: Bad Boys
There are a lot of weird misconceptions and biases getting thrown around in this thread.
I drive a BMW. Bought it three years ago and it was three years old then. Immaculately well-maintained and very low miles when I bought it. Cost about 2/3 my wife's new-at-the-time Honda CR-V, yet folks at our church still felt the need to comment on my car.
There's not a lot to be known about a person's character from the car they drive.
The King of Cool driving his 911
Yeah, you and I are polar opposites. I earn the money so that I can pay someone to do things I don't want to do.
I derive no pleasure from the process, while I know a large number of people who take a great deal of well-earned pride in doing as you do.
Not me. All I get is frustrated, make the problem worse and then have to pay someone to fix my screw up.
Best for me to skip that middle step and just get to solving the problem.
I've learned I can do something badly in 12 hours what a pro can do well in one hour.
