    Talking Something Good Happened Today.....

    I usually don't get excited about cages. Butt 287 HP and 274ftlb of the T- word......Retirement will have to wait for a little while.

    Magwa, you will never retire. You are a vehicle slut, and will never stop getting new toys.

    By the way, one yummy ride!

    Wanna race?



    Go soothingly through the grease mud, as there lurks the skid demon.

    new toy

    MAGWA,
    Congrats on your new toy and lots of luck to you.

    Also thanks for posting it. It makes me feel better knowing that I am not the only one who is out of control. God bless my wonderful wife for putting up with me.

    Alright here is my two cents on buying toys.
    I make some great cabbage being a fire/medic. I suffered a heart attack at 38 years old due to a blood disease. I'm still going strong and spending my cash and having fun. Why do I do this ?

    1) Because I can.
    2) There will not be social security when I retire.
    3) My current restoration (78rs) is cool. I've always wanted one.
    4) Life is way too short. I have a lot more rides I want to do.
    5) I haven't grown up yet. My toys are now larger and more expensive.
    6) I have seen too much death in my job. I do not want to end up like some of my patients.
    7) No kid's but, my wife is a hottie. I like to spend money on her. She deserves to be spoiled and pampered. Plus being married to me is a tough job for her.

    When the time comes for me to go for the final journey. I am hoping that I am on the toilet when the big one hits. Then I will fall off the toilet and get stuck in between the wall and the toilet. I want to be an absolute mess for the paramedic crew when they get on scene to work on me.
    I have decided to be buried at the local elementary school with my butt sticking up out of the ground. That way the kids will have a place to park their bicycle's without falling over.

    Life is way to short to be frugle with cash. If you have it, spend it. Don't save it to only be inherited.
    Get out and buy that new bike. The last one with the most toy's is the last one with the most toy's. As long as the one with the most toy's had fun in their life. That is what counts the most.


    Take Care

    Nope.

    [QUOTE=Visian]

    No race. My new ride wouldn't be up to the task. Nor would I.
    I spent all my testosterone on the purchase.

    And, anyway, I'm nursing two speeding tickets as it stands. Both in door slammers.

    Those cages "smoke". In a good way.

    You are dead on! I had a life changing event at 21 when my 19 year old brother was killed in a car accident. And I too have seen way too many people be frugal all their life, only to die in the mid 50's or early 60's. Sure, save a little for tomorrow, but have some fun TODAY too!!

    My Plan

    I'm spending my kids inheritance on Me and the Wife!!! My plan is to leave my two sons with the wisdom and work ethic to make their own $$$. If there is any money left when the wife and me are gone, they can have it and they can do what ever they want to with the toys.

    PS. If you don't have a Will...get one!!

    Out of control? Tina and I are enablers for each other. 7 vehicles for two people is probably working on out of control.

    Some bikes. Some with motors, some without.

    Just read in the Sunday paper in the auto section, that the new '05 Dodge Neon SVT-4, is the second fastest car in the entire Dodge line-up.

    0-60 in something like 5.8 seconds........

    The fastest being the Dodge Viper of course.
