What do you think fellows?

Dippy
Yes it will be a dream come true.
  1. If you are in pink of your health.
  2. If you have a great job that gives you freedom and peace of mind.
  3. If you have a family that supports and understands you.
  4. If you live in a place where you can go for a drive without swearing twice per minute.
  5. If......
You see, there are a lot of "ifs" associated with a dream life. Till all those are met, it will remain what it is; a dream. If you are driving and your mind is still stuck in the office or at the doctor's office, I feel, you wont be able to enjoy your car/drive even if it is a Dodge Viper being driven through Alpine roads.

OT: I know I dug up a half-decade-old thread, but I think the question Dippy asked is still relevant.

"NO" Life is not at all about money, car/s or any possession or display of wealth. There is much more and worthwhile to life.

the question arises because you already have a passion for cars.

i can frame it as "you have a passion for food, booze and women, and big time money at the same time" is that a dream life?

why not

Buy decent car (long-termer), invest money, leave job, hit the road!
