I had some Chinese carry out earlier this week from Lim’s Palace in Clawson. The food was pretty bland and unsatisfying (dumplings were ok), but I received a great fortune in my cookie. It reads “Something on 4 wheels will soon be a fun investment for you!”. Well, that seems strangely specific and relevant to my interests. I guess the universe is telling me to abandon the motorcycle shopping. A four wheeled “investment” has to be a car, and not just any car. A car is typically a liability that depreciates over time, not an investment. Is some cosmic power really telling me to buy the Ferrari I’ve been fantasizing about? Appears so, does it not?
I’m not one to fight the universe, so I’m now officially going to embrace the search for something special. I’m in no rush to buy, but if a reasonable Ferrari 308 comes up for sale, maybe it is time to take the plunge. Of course, a vintage Alfa Romeo or late model Maserati Coupe could fit the bill as well. I’m not even sure I will fit in a Ferrari. I sat in a 308 GTS at the Auburn auction over a decade ago and recall it feeling very snug. It’s time to give it another try.
