Completely agree! Or they buy it for the "look at me" factor. But are most of the younger ones on HERE like that? I have seen many young people create some amazing DIY's or post something helpful. Many of these younger people who are total Dbags and act like they have a super car are usually not on any forums cause they dont maintain their car. So why do older people treat younger ones like sh!it on the forums? The younger ones have to learn somehow. right?

omgeehh I'm a kid with a 9 year old car. Look at me. My parents bought my car that's why I'm irresponsible and ignorant. yeahhhh.

Agreed, cars aren't an investment. But I do gain joy from it.

These cars are no where near rare or in demand enough for you to turn a profit by fixing them up. Even if you get a source for very cheap parts and do all the work yourself, you would probably only break even. Not to mention all the time you put into it.

Oh, I also have style 42s...16" of bmw beauty...much nicer than those other wheels, don't you agree?

Don't worry...I take care of those with my same skin color...you're among friends (there are 3 of us with Fern Green)!
Pics? I love fern green

"A car" in general could be described as an investment, it is a way of transport to a job to make money. Now to be specific, a cheap, efficient Honda civic would be a better option for this over an older BMW.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but that's an expense, not an investment.

I've heard people call it both, I guess it just depends on your point of view.
