If I had to do everything over I'd have bought an old Mini or a Citroen 2CV or something more reasonable, that you can fully restore for $20k or $30k, or sometimes even less. You can buy a nice condition 2CV for $15k. The split-window looks awesome and about once every three months a delivery guy or plumber or something comes by and says "hey, you have the holy grail!!" But it doesn't do much good when it doesn't run and will take many tens of thousands of dollars and/or thousands of man hours to fix.
This isn’t a real proposal. If the owners wanted more games they would have put it in there proposal. And deferring salary with interest if there are no World Series is comical. That does nothing for the owners.
Im older than you, so 60 and 70s is right in my wheelhouse (no pun intended).
Every time, my financial situation improves, and I think about buying me something. Dang prices go up again, and I end up sticking the money into home remodeling.
I was laughing with the wife the other day, brought my house in 92, and spent more money remodeling it and adding on to it, then the purchase price.
That's way too depressing. First, it's almost all 1960s and 1970s muscle cars. I know, I own a '63 Vette, but I'm not a muscle car guy. Plus, about once every episode of Barrett Jackson they have a numbers-matching '63 split window that goes for $150k or more, and it just reminds me that I can't sell mine and I don't have the time or money to restore it.
