    This still isn't something I'd suggest for a person your age. No matter how you justify it, you're pretty much wasting money. But that's awesome.

    So many different situations out there...it can get tricky when people throw out generalizations. A good buddy of mine always had beautiful cars as a college student, and seemed to have the finest things. He'd let people believe that he worked for it all, but in reality he was a trust fund kid. He squandered money that could have set him up to retire at 40.

    Sometimes I think about what I could buy if I stopped saving for the future, and told my kids that they were footing their own undergrad bill. It's fun, but makes no sense to me.

    Its been my dream car for as long as I can remember. Got a promotion to sous chef at work and went for it. No regrets and definitely not a wast of money.

    I have an older friend -colleague who always drives a nice car. He would always tell me there are few pleasures a man has like getting into a nice car everyday.
    You know what I agree! You have to strike a balance, I don't believe in being broke to drive a fun car, but I also don't believe in hoarding money and not enjoying today. You can't take the money with you when you die.

    "Dream car" is a very loose term if you ask me. A WRX is a very attainable for just about anyone since it's a mass produced economy car. When I hear the words "dream car" followed by "WRX" or something similar and often question why. To me, that's not dreaming very big. As I've gotten older I've realized that if you're not striving to achieve the best you can, you're not trying hard enough. When I use that term, I think of some sort of car that will most likely be unatainable for me. But hey, that's just my personal opinion

    Agreed, but the WRX is still my dream car because I define "dream car" very practically as a vehicle that I can have the most fun with while it can accomplish everything that I need it to at the same time:
    * great safety ratings (kids)
    * versatile enough to be practical with kids (strollers, etc)
    * great reliability
    * fast
    * decent gas mileage
    * easy enough for the wife to drive also
    * tweakable
    * looks good
    * doesn't break my bank account (and my bank account would have to be something sustainable in a realistic world)
    * gets at least halfway decent gas mileage

    "Dream Car" is now a meaningless term to me:

    • They're just piles of steel and engineering. When I was 13 I lumped in all of this glamour and romance with it, but I've worked on too much production machinery, and seen too many "awesome cars!!11!!" become "OMGpiecesofcrap!!11!!" as time wears on, hype wears off, and people realize their deficiencies. It's just a car. Any "magic" that goes with it is a mental phenomenon. Any awesome-driving car you buy will, at some point, just be another rusted hulk. Impermanence wins.
    • There are 1- cars that I'd love to drive...and then there's 2- cars that I'd actually own. A lot have fallen out of #2 and just become #1 over the years.



    Geez, that comes across all grouchieclamf.
