2013 Dodge Viper GTS is my current DD. My 392 will probably give it a run for the money as far as fun to drive. Not sure I'll ever be able to get rid of either of them...
Your black GTS is freaking beautiful, and I love the V-plate! 😄

Great photos! I love cars. Most people believe cars are a bad investment. From a financial perspective, they generally are, but from a happiness perspective, they are some of the best investments money can buy.

It’s one reason I work hard. I would like to have at least 6-7 vehicles at any given time in the future. So many cool and different types. Thanks again for sharing everyone.

Cars are generally a depreciating asset. Being smart about resale values goes a very long way though. I always tell my wife “the cost is not the price of the car. It’s how much it depreciates while you own it.” I’ve had some very nice cars that all “cost” less than my wife’s kid hauler SUVs. That logic falls apart a little if you finance though. Unless you get a very good rate. The beauty of Wranglers of all types is the depreciation is very low.

I've purchased cars all three ways - lease, finance and cash. You are correct about depreciation costing less when you buy outright but my experience has been that doing so also makes it more likely I trade in earlier (which is also costly - not just money wise but also wife credits wise). You can pay off a loan or lease but that extra hurdle often makes me keep the car a little longer. YMMV of course.

Totally agree...If I don't use my money to buy fun cars, my wife will just waste it on the house and yard!

Gotcha, thanks for the info. Where are the cliffs? Is that a park of some sort, and are people still allowed to run SxS's there? Sorry for being a pest, I'm still pretty new to the area so I have no clue where anything is. 😕
Nah not being a pest, all good! Yes it is, and yes they are. If you make it down there hit up Boondocks or Fat Daddyz for lunch or a post ride beverage. Both are fun places to stop.
The Cliffs insane terrain

Escalade, Civic and RX350 … and no pics of any of them! —- edit: except a roof shot through the sunroof of the Caddy of a sunset as we left CO and headed back east after our last motorcycle and my bike trip. 😉
