It's funny this should come up. I'm at a point in my life where I have money in the bank . I'm not rich , but we inherited some , sold some stocks etc. On top of that , kids are gone , and we both make decent money. Interest rates isn't anything to talk about these days , but then again , inflation is really low as well.. Summer cottage ? Nahhh.....?.I'm not interested in investing in stocks , so that is also out... I'm into old cars , so looked at getting a vintage vehicle. I know people that doubled their money in a few years , mainly Porsche owners......Space is a problem , I have too much already , and no decent storage available for a nice car. This thread made me realize that all though I'm a total guitar geek , have far to many , and love to tinker with them , I haven't even considered buying a vintage guitar ! I guess it's just been completely off my radar , that this could be a decent investment. Sure there is a risk involved , but that could be said about anything,....but do I really want to own one......hmmm ?
