This blog is rather quickly turning into my own rather aimless ramble about cars and food. I’m fine with that. I have other interests, but these are the things I choose to write about on the Internet.
I think my earlier exuberance over a fortune cookie was a bit misguided. I was reading a lot about Ferrari cars at the time and I still think it could be an interesting experience to own one. However, I’m a bit discouraged by the level of care required to keep one on the road. The models I might actually be able to afford from the 70’s and 80’s are not particularly durable nor are they “gas it and go” appliances. I need to face the fact that I’m not a particularly motivated to spend a lot of time turning wrenches. So, Ferrari might not be the best fit and I should probably dip my toe into the car hobby rather than jump into the deep end. For the time being, Porsche and Alfa Romeo are looking a bit better to me again. Granted, some of these models require some real upkeep, but the costs are lower. A major screw up on my part would also be easier to recover from with a generally cheaper car. A Porsche 944 could serve as a new set of car enthusiast training wheels.
I’m always keeping my eye out for a car that speaks to me. I need a new way to get to all these restaurants.
