I do not speak for anyone else. If you agree with me, Fine, if you disagree with me, that's fine too, this is just my 2 cents worth.
I hear people every day, whining and crying about the price they have to pay to enjoy their cars. Most of the people that I know are into "Muscle Cars", yet I hear others complaining about the same thing, "The Price Of Gas".
Well Here's What I Think......
Yes the price that we are paying for gas is outrageous, infact, it is at an all time high in the US. Oil has topped $100 a barrel, which trickles down to the consumer. We are currently paying anywhere from $3.00 to $4.00 a gallon for regular unleaded gasoline.
This is what you chose!!
I am no economic genius, but haven't you been paying attention?
All my life, oil based products, not just gasoline, has been on a constant and steady uphill climb. Price and demand. And personally, I don't see it EVER going down, price or demand. So, what is it I'm trying to say here?
I chose to own a Muscle Car, I made the decision early on, that I wanted to have a hobby that was going to cost me money every time I wanted to participate.
As the old saying goes....."You Got To Pay To Play The Game"
I have talked to people that have put "MEGA BUCKS" into their cars, and now are refusing to take their car to a car show or cruise because "The Price Of Gas Is Too High".
BULL!!!!!!! I say, You Got To Pay To Play The Game.
You have to go to the shows and cruises, they are not going to come to you.
What good is that Classic Muscle Car, or any customized or modified car gonna be sitting in the garage? You were willing to spend all that money for a car, but now you're not willing to send a lil more to cruise, or show it off. Then I say, sell it! Cut your losses and get rid of it.
You Got To Pay To Play The Game.
If you think it's too expensive to do it today, surprize,
it isn't gonna be any cheaper to do it tomorrow.
Ok, I'll get off my soapbox now.
Just my 2 cents worth.
