A Trans Am is not an inexpensive car to own. Am I to assume he will need our
continued assistance to pay for Gas, Insurance, and repairs? Tell you what,
Maybe I'll send some money when everyone chips in and buys me a new Ferrari.
Until then, Stay in school, get a good job, and save your money. Just like
I have a better idea. Why don't you have your son donate every cent he gets
off the web to pay for my new 'dream mini-van'. I'm sure you'll appreciate the
story. You see, my daughter is fat and doesn't even like to get out of her
chair and is going for surgery to try and take care of it. I'm sure you know
the kind. So we needed to get her a minivan to make it easier for her to get
around to all of her dates with the doctors she loves to flirt with so much.
Problem is the insurance is a bit higher and the car payments are a little
much. What do ya say? Hey, in return I might let him touch my Trans Am...
I've thought about it, and I have *legitimate* reasons. Some people don't
wallow in self-pity and whine about what they don't have and will *never* need,
though. I don't have my Trans Am because I needed it. I have it because I had
a cheap daily driver that I took care of and because I saved. Even now, I have
the car (both of them, actually), but I still save for it. I still work my
butt off to own it, and everything else I have. I've never gotten a hand out.
Hell, I've never even gotten much of a hand-me-down. It isn't pride that I
have. It's self-respect that I've earned. When I drive my Trans Am, I'm
happier with it than anyone could ever be that did less to earn it. I'm sure
most regulars here would agree.
So? My dream car is a McLaren F1. I'll never have one... I could settle for
a Ferrari Daytona, but I don't think that will happen either. I'd even go so
low as a Lamborgini Miura, but alas...I settled for a '74 Trans Am. It's sad
really. *holds out hand with head held low in shame* Sorry...was holding the
wrong head. I'm sure that will come off of your shoe with a little work.
