    My wife knows my girlfriends are in the garage. Don't EVER add up the money. Just make you sick.

    I've got a T shirt from Blipshift that applies more to racing but goes:

    Race-Regret-Repair in a triangle. Unfortunately it's true!

    Saw this one on a fellow race car years ago: “Driver carries no cash-(anymore)”. How true...

    Right BrightonUK, but what your formula has overlooked is the cubic $ you would have spent on the Cat 620 keeping it happy!

    I am old enough (sadly) to say my track car experience has been very expensive, no matter what car I have. At one point I had a new '94 Miata and at the end of the experience I realized I could have had a new Porsche 911 for what I spent on it. Who cares, I loved every minute of researching, purchasing, and installing the various "improvements" to my car. An experience I have duplicated with every car since.

    As long as you are not taking food off the table, ignoring your 401K or your kids' college fund, who cares? Enjoy it while you can, tomorrow may be too late.

    If you only had a wife with a horse...

    She’ll never question the expenses of your mistress over those of her show horse habit

    I keep the receipts in a zippered binder hidden away in a dark corner. It’s now 2” thick and the zipper is getting quite strained.

    This thread reminds me of most of the expensive hobbies I have been involved in. There seems to be a standing mantra that most of us repeat to our wives periodically: "Honey, if I die, please don't sell the car (insert whatever item(s)) for what I told you I paid for it". Of course, over the years, her rejoinder has been: "If you die, I am going to sell that (name item) cheap".

    When it comes to the cost of all things automotive, honesty is overrated.
