Sweet car!

I get compliments on my Fit all the time, so he's welcome to poke fun at it. Honestly, i was shocked that so many people notice it. Granted, it just came out, but still, i really didn't expect the response i get from it.

You're just trying to make up for the small, um, you know...

Lest you get my drift wrong, I suggest you not make any more threatening comments. Let's keep it friendly-like.

It's all my fault, really. I should have known better than to post something as inflammatory as a survey of CEO's driving habits. What was I thinking? *

So a BMW and McMansion is the same as charitable donations? Nice tin ear to sarcasm. :

Careful, Laurence. He knows where you live, and he is "powerful."

Re: LBYM CEO style

I know exactly what he is referring to, and he really shouldn't be implying it on a message board if it is true. Nonetheless, I have already gone to far in my posts, all the while Nords is trying to settle things down. Mea Culpa

Hey, I'm never going to make up for small member with a Honda!

Its a great car. It does redline at 9000, and I do that as often as I can. I only use the car for weekends and track days. The ride is too rough for most, but I really like it.

Yeah, I could easily see it as a weekend toy. Somehow I suspect my arthritis would be complaining after a half hour, though.

What's even funnier is when I tell people it's my car, then they stare at me, and then the car (I'm 6'6". 225lb) and the car isn't much bigger) Go figure, it is very comfortable for me?

Re: LBYM CEO style

A big friend of mine just bought the Chrysler roadster (twin of the Mercedes SLK?) and I was surprised he fit in it well. I guess it's because, like the Honda, they don't cram in that pretend back seat for insurance purposes.

Re: LBYM CEO style

Back on topic, at one point I was friends with the CEO/owner of a smallish company (100-200 people) and he drove what was then a top of the line Lexus because he had a long and tiresome commute. Otherwise his lifestyle was comfortable but not extravagant and he always planned for FIRE. He sold the company for about $10 mil in his early 50s and has been enjoying his retirement ever since. He does a lot of international travel, which is why I have mostly lost track of him.

I also know a guy who is not a CEO, but is very comfortable to the tune of millions of dollars a year. Something to do with bonds, I believe * He loves toys and would probably drive something expensive if he had his druthers, but instead he drives a Prius to placate his "environmentally aware" wife *
