A lot of people, buy a lot of things to increase their own perception of their "self worth" ..that includes cars, clothes, makeup, shoes, expensive
haircuts, plastic surgery..You name it..
If you are middle aged, and have a nice Sports car..It may just mean that you can finally afford the payments AND the insurance!
I can assure that my wife is not a teenaged boy, OR a middle aged man..
I showed her the pic of that Lotus provided by Optimus Fett..Her eyes got big and she grinned..
I just said to her, "maybe in the future"..LOL
BTW a "reliable car" could be considered an extension of the owner as well.
To me, it says "thifty, practical" and there is nothing wrong with that.
