Commenter Of The Day: Economies Of Scale

When shopping for Christmas gifts there's been sort of a reminder of how life has changed now that I'm not a poor college student. For instance, I no longer pay close attention to how much the wrapping paper I buy is and factor it into how much I planned to spend on the gift. Actually, I'm buying wrapping paper now and not recycling it from old gifts or using copies of the Texas Travesty, so there's another change. What I'd spend on an entire gift for someone I may now spend on a stocking stuffer (although I still budget it all in my head). I think not using a Ferrari 599 GTO is a waste, although I'd still probably garage it when it snowed. Porsche9146 suggested something similar:

it's not a daily driver, it was never meant to be, the assumption that it's wrong to keep your car in a garage and hoon it once in a blue moon makes no sense to me. a 612 scagilietti could be daily driven reasonably (and should be), a 599 GTO should be savored.

And then Timbuktu adjusted it for the rest of us.

a Civic could be daily driven reasonably (and should be), an S2000 should be savored.

an S2000 could be daily driven reasonably (and should be), an NSX should be savored.

an NSX could be daily driven reasonably (and should be), an R8 should be savored.

an R8 could be daily driven reasonably (and should be), a 911 GT2 should be savored.

a 911 GT2 could be daily driven reasonably (and should be), a 430 Scuderia should be savored.

Pick your economic class.
