That engine bay looks like a 92000 mile engine bay... LOL.

Something isn't really adding up either. Cool story, but he has certainly got some other kind of income (trust fund perhaps) to maintain a lifestyle like that.

The gas alone for a 92,000 mile trip @ 10mpg is over $36,000.00. He had to eat, he had to sleep sometimes. He needed at least 1 set of tires maybe 3, etc. Not to mention he was paying a mortgage... and at least a $1500/month car payment.

He couldn't get a loan from a bank to fix the car, but now all of a sudden he has a new workshop in dallas and a couple of ducatis?


I'm not hating.. after all if he had taken off on a trip like that in a new 135 he might not have even made it out of Ohio without HPFP problem, but romantic as it is I don't think we're getting the full picture.

^^^ I agree. I assumed he had been living off of money he banked from selling his stuff and probably a mix of credit as well.

that is some crazy lifestyle, but i definitely agree on the whole weekend car thing. Spending so much money on a car and never enjoying it = waste; but then im a total hypocrit too, spend more time washing and detailing the car than i actually drive it

And we wonder why our banks in America wont lend money to people anymore??

"I have a few hundred grand against me, I don't like debt, but I'm used to it," Richard says.

Neat story, almost dream like. But the reality of it, if what most of he says is true, then this dude will be paying apartment rent for the next 10 years. I guess he can always live in the car since no one else will buy it haha.

I agree with the possible trust fund. I don't understand some peoples mentality of buying things you truly cant afford. But, I totally would have rode passenger!!

Cool story but I wonder what he did to finance it all. Article did say he sold a metal fabrication business prior to buying a house for his fiance. So i wonder what financial shape he was in at that point.

+1... as the one poster above mentioned.... all of this would have cost him well into $100k just for USING the car (and motels, etc), let alone the original price of the car.... something certainly doesn't add up...

Cool either way, but I'm betting he probably had a trust fund, etc hiding somewhere that helped fund this
