The thread about having to explain/justify Ferrari ownership leads me to ask another slightly different question. There were some very thoughful responses offered in that thread and some defiant "I own a Ferrari because I work hard and deserve it" type statements as well. Both, in my opinion, viable answers. We do work hard and have every "right" to our toys. My question is really about the nature of that "right". When you reach a point that you can spend $100/200/300k on a car(s), strictly for your own driving pleasure, is there a sense about "appropriatness" that does or should come into play? I ask this question in all earnestness and hope the responses will come with care and respect also. For instance, I know people that will gather and hoard everything they can, you know, all for them, f*ck the rest. Then I also have friends who are generous to extreme, are always giving gifts and donations at every opportunity and while they might drive a nice car, it is certainly not expensive, and to them it would be more appropriate and, apparently, more satisfying than owning a $200k Ferrari. While I love cars and feel proud of my ownership, I also certainly feel the disparity of owning an expensive car when I drive by a homeless person (I have gotten some nice comments and thumbs up from homeless people working the meridians though!) or when I consider what that money could do for struggling low income families. Personally, I try hard to keep a balance by donating a percentage of my income, creating charity through my business and balancing personal pleasures with social needs and responsibilities. Just wondering what other owners feel about this and if it is an issue at all in your thinking and buying habits.
