    In my case I think that's probably true. But that doesn't change the fact that the car market is not heading in the right direction for enthusiasts of any level.

    My desire to mod cars died about 5 years ago. Still have an eye for nicer cars but even that is sorta falling away. Next purchase will probably just be a boring nice SUV which makes me sad inside.
    A boring nice SUV is glorious. My days of turbo and exhaust swapping are behind me.

    WTF is this world coming to where @rage2 is talking about putting name down on Sienna's and shit.
    I hate driving it. I am enjoying it as a passenger. We’d like to upgrade if they ever made a PHEV one, and get the trim we wanted instead of what we settled for. Beggars can’t be choosers in this market.

    Wait times for Sienna AWD are 18-24 months lol. Who would’ve thought. Have to apply all the tricks to plan for next upgrade.

    I can relate to this. I lost the desire to make the car ride worse or make it less dependable for 'shits and giggles'.

    Hmm I just thought the opposite. Turned F&F on the other day... would still love an s14 someday to f around with. Obviously as a 3rd or 4th car that doesnt need to run

    My only concern with the car hobby falling away is noise. I can't torment people like that anymore.

    So you buy a car that is just loaded and done.

    I lost the desire too for a good 5 years

    The real great thing here is it's possible to own more than one car. Or even *gasp* more than two. Own something nice/luxurious/reliable, as well as an impractical moneypit. That's what I do.

    I don't want to know what mine would sell for, with only 104k on it.

    edit: *I don't want my wife to know*

    Drift tax is the real inflation. Change my mind.

    Every day that goes by, I feel a greater desire to get another S2k. Going to try and wait the market out a bit though.

    Amazing cars. I think they are so worth it. Would totally splurge on an AP2!
