Ever want a car so bad but are simply afraid to buy it because of what it is? For example, say you’ve always lusted after a Ferrari 308. Their performance by today’s standards is pretty dismal, in fact a new Toyota Camry will kick the shit out of it on any racetrack on the planet, but lets face it, a Ferrari is a Ferrari and that’s all there is to it. Price wise a new Camry (when maxed out) will run you around $32,000, about the same price as a used Ferrari 308. So… herein lies the dilemma. On the one hand, if you buy the Toyota you get a brand new car, with a full warranty and decent performance. However its styling is so bland that it will make you invisible the moment you set foot in it and you’ll feel like plain vanilla for as long as you own the car.
On the other, and for the same money, you get the same car that got Magnum P.I. laid on a daily basis, entrance into a very exclusive Italian club and repair costs that could possibly put you in the poor house if you get a bad one. So I ask you – is it worth the gamble?
