Indeed. You also can't really drive the special cars too much, because then they stop becoming very special.

My Dad thought buying a convertible was a really stupid idea, and buying a British convertible was even worse. It's probably just as well, there is no way I would have been able to keep one of those temperamental beasts running.
The 3rd car I owned was a turbo Wankel, it was an awesome car. It was so light that its 180ish HP felt like 300. Unfortunately, I traded it, in a moment of stupidity, so I only spent a few months with it. I'd love to have it today, it was a slick little beast.

I think I drank too much.
You did! Lots of cars bad?! How could you say that?
I'm having a lot of fun with this new hobby, but it does cost a lot more than head-fi/HiFi. Well, maybe not extreme nosebleed HiFi, but even then exotic cars have a higher upper limit. Right now I'm carefully choosing the cars based on rounding the collection, while not getting seriously hammered with depreciation. For the most part, I'm going to let someone else eat the worst of the expense, then we'll enjoy them when they're done. There are exceptions; first year 991 and first year 12C spider, but both of those are going to have such slow/low depreciation that it doesn't matter, they're the consensus best cars in their class and will be in high demand even after their product cycles have ended.
