Buying *Another* Car? How do I Justify it? Loving Cars is Complicated.
In this episode, Graham does a terrible job of talking me out of buying another car.Faced with a Hot Rodded 1987 Civic Si, Marcus is working out the logic in buying yet another car. Fearful of the consequence of swelling the HT Garage and the inevitable spousal backlash, he's just a little gun-shy.But let's face it, this car is going to get bought by someone who doesn't need it. Might as well be Heeltoe!On a deeper level, though, what is compelling this conversation? Why do we love cars like this and what is collectible? Honestly, why are we so in love with culty cars?And when we find one we love, how do we justify it? Marcus can find just as much reason, or more, than anyone. But still, unless some kind of museum is in the works, why does 10th car really make sense?It's complicated, we guess.*PS Marcus says, sorry for my extra loud audio on this, we are getting our microphone chops sorted out. By ep 12 we should be in better shape!
