You should see some of my friends cars (no they are not new boats like this, but ones where the restoration costs alone were more than a new phantom)

Yeah someday but bugatti Veyron is a little too expensive right now, I pretty muched calculated what I could afford in terms of monthly payments at this time, anything around 4k is fine, a Veyron would probably be like 15k a month.

Whats wrong with being old and creepy? There are a tons of us here in LA

'Round here a good number of the REALLY loaded people drive Subaru wagons...100's of millions or billions of net worth.

However there is one 80 year old dude at our club that drives himself around in a brand-new Phantom...he is a baller...

I once read a book about spending and saving practices of the wealthy. They had surveyed a bunch of millionaires and billionaires, people like Warren Buffet. I forget the name of the book but I remember that they asked them what was the most they ever spent on a vehicle. For the vast majority of them, it was something like $35,000.

Then again, they probably ride to work in a chauffeured Town Car every day, but you see my point.

Morgans are like $150k new.

Depreciation is not bad and they import less than 100 per year.

Hell, I'm all for having fun and enjoying a car, identifying with a particular marque, etc. but to try to buy something just so you can get noticed and be perceived as someone with money - and to futher be afraid that a particular Rolls may not garner the proper attention because you'd actually be driving it instead of being driven in it is absolutely retarded.

I rememer asking my uncle to take one the cars from his collection for a day when I was in high school to "try to pick up chicks" - he said one of the best things ever - to seek out the attention of women based purely upon the perception of wealth, means there's little else you think you can offer them.

Wouldn't it be cheaper to just rent a rolls for the clubbing nights?

I always wanted to have an "Executive Associate/Assistant" like Kato on the Green Hornet! That would be cool...then you could be driven around in your Rolls!

I don't think I would call it "Largeness"...it would be the optimal way to operate. How better to increase you personal effectiveness! The concept of a Kato goes back forever.
