When I first starting making some decent money, I wanted to buy an old sports car. It was more money than I knew I should be spending. It wasn't that the car was expensive, it was just an excessive thing to buy at the time. Ive never been much of a saver.
I had been single after my most substansial relationship for about 9 months. During that relationship I thought about engagement rings. I thought to myself "20K for a ring, Jesus, that is actually insane." I know other guys that have had the same thought. Buying this car made me realize why that was such a crazy thing to think.
1991 porsche 911 carrera 2, black and tan (black exterior, tan interior, oye I love). Stick. $22,500. I already had a car, I only needed one (with 4 actual seats as I am a Realtor). I was having a good year, but still knew I should save money. It wasnt about the money, now. I saw the car, and I knew I needed it. Pretty mindless. Knew that it didnt matter how much it cost, if I had the money, Id get it. I didnt care what was wrong with it. Didnt mind the high mileage, the odometer that was messed with, the torn leather on the stick, the light that was loose and falling out, the oil meter that was broken, and the variety of other issues the car had (it had a lot). I knew I loved it. I knew Id get it, and I knew Id fix it when it needed it. I knew I would keep it forever. When I paid the car off all at once, almost instantly I thought about how I couldnt do the same when it came to getting a ring for the girl I loved. I instantly thought it shouldnt be that hard for someone I love with all my heart. It confused me. In my head and heart. I truly felt that I loved her with all that I have to give...maybe thats not my whole heart. Maybe I cant do that for anyone. Maybe I can only do that for a thing. Black and tan.
