Since my newest car is a 1960 I sometimes think it takes a special kind 
of idiot.  But once I find a car that suits me I never saw a reason to 
get rid of it and replace it with something that would suit me even less.

With both of my vehicles people keep telling me that they had one years 
ago and still regret selling it.  I decided that if I keep it I will 
never regret selling it.  Besides I think it is foolish to spend a lot 
of money on something that is worth less everyday.  Both my $1000 TR3 
and my $350 Land Rover still gets me where I want to go even after 
owning the TR3 for 28 years and the Land Rover for 36 years.  Of course 
I have had to put money into maintaining them but since I never plan to 
sell it is all just imaginary profit or loss anyway.  The important 
thing is the smile on my lips and the other idiots who own these cars 
that I have met and become friends with over the decades.
