traffic and criminal attorney
part-time chippendale's performer,tired of getting pawed at by all these women (i'm a person with feelings,ladies,not just a hunk of meat)

the post i quoted speaks to why i got this car recently,and my nsx 3 years ago.it took me a while to get both,but i wanted to do it while i'm young enough to enjoy it.i have a positive outlook,but if you wait too long,you might not get to do the things you want to do.i told my girlfriend these are not midlife crisis cars,she said i'm too old for a midlife crisis.
i'd been reading car mags since i was 10,and finally told myself this is like reading about travelling and never going anywhere.i had to save for a long time,then find a balance between being in shape for the future,and living my life now.for those of you who got these in your 20's and 30's,that's great.for those of us who had to wait,it's all the sweeter.

It is a good way to help out the wife if she is earning the daily bread, you are not alone doing this there are more and more men looking after the household shores while the wife earns the money.

27 yo here and I'm a CPA, although I just started working in due diligence for M&A. In my case, I've wanted an M3 IB coupe for a while and my finances are finally in a place where I can really enjoy the disposable income I have. Besides, why wait until your old to enjoy all the fruits of your labor?
