Default Passion for cars and having big time money..Ultimate combo for a great life?

Guys

Just some food for thought

Has it ever crossed your mind.. You have a passion for cars and big time money at the same time . Is that a dream life?

Could one ask for anything else


What do you think fellows?

Uh, good roads and good fuel to go with the dream-come-true cars would make the picture complete.

Wish life was this straightforward....... Look at the Ambanis. They have all the money in the world (And cars too!!) but the guys can't get enough of it!

You have to love your car to enjoy it. Whether its a zen or a ferrari, doesn't matter.

Thumbs up

I guess the only person who explained it better was Jesus >

surely money does move the world

but if i had that kind of money i would upgrade from m800 to accent or skoda octavia, have a good set of wheels, a goor deck and leather seats to go along. but would not liek to waste money on bigger car which does not give FE as all the money i would be left with would go in filling my car's belly everyday.

so for me my car would be enuf for me to drive me from home to work and long drives on sunday.

so u guys agree?

The worst is when people have money but a bad taste. It really drives me nuts!! And as said before, whtever car i have, i will be attached to it in a very special way. And as you guys will probably agree, its possible to have emotional attachment to a machine.

well
i agree with mohit...
i can happily say i am more fond of my zen and palio then my merc..
hell i would have gotten an 5 series for that kind of money but then i wont be emotionally attached to it...
i respect the merc and am beggining to like it slowly slowly but i prefer my palio and zen more ...
anyone have a problem with that ....
cheers

Hey,
Well,Money is definately a necessity where Honey is concerned.But as far as cars go,i feel good choice is what one needs.Infact i prefer spending on other needs than cars.
I dunt need a Ferrari or McLaren.Gimme an Evo or a Skyline anyday.
