Probably not.  The car doesn't jive with my value system.  
Do I love beautiful sports cars?  Yes. Do I love going fast?  Yes.
Ok.  So what's the problem?
Do I love showing off?  Not really. Do I want people to assume I have a lot of $?  No.
Hmmmm....
Do I like driving just to drive aka "cruisin"?  Nope. Do I think that operating more than one veh…
