There are cars, and then there are cars. What I mean is, I could buy a second-hand, 2004 Toyota Echo, or I could buy a 1968 Ford Mustang GT Fastback.
Yeah, the Mustang will require more of an investment, and an ongoing one at that, but I know that it will be more enjoyable to drive and I’m certain I will get more attention while I’m driving it.
My *imaginary* Mustang will look as gorgeous today as it did over 40 years ago when it was first on the sales lot. I will put time and money into maintaining and keeping it beautiful, and it will only increase in value, while I reap the rewards.
It’s not just that the Mustang is better looking than the Echo (though looks are a big part of it); it’s about the sound that it makes, the speed at which it travels, the obvious workmanship that has gone into making such a beauty, and the fact that it still works like a charm over 40 years on; it’s a whole package.
It all comes down to quality.
