What Brewer said.
BTW, your sports car was my boat back in my 30's. I made it a point to look for the right deal. That way when the boat turned from enthusiastic hobby to unneeded expense (after several years)... I was able to recover the cost of the purchase. That temporary hobby cost me up keep, insurance, and dock fees for several years. I do not regret it for a minute! But as they say: the best days of a boat owners life are the day they buy it and the day they sell it!
Another story. BIL's buddy (pushing 50) wanted an early 70's muscle car. He has had it for about 4 or 5 years and not it has run its course. He is unloading it. Hopefully he looked for the right deal so he can recoup his investment.
In the end this thing will runs its course... but that is ok and certainly not a reason to avoid buying it.... just take your time and look for the right deal!
