You are going through a delayed mid life crisis.
Get a McLaren. That will solve everything.
$3,149 per month plus tax | 36 month closed-end lease | $19,999 down payment plus tax, title, license, registration, bank fee, first payment. | $28,828 total out of pocket cash or combination of cash and trade equity | Based on 2,500 miles per year ($2.75 excess mileage charge at lease end) | Based on Los Angeles County tax and license | On approved Tier 1 credit through McLaren Chase Auto | Offer expires November 30, 2022.
Oh shit. you missed the deal….

Agree with Coronita,
Buying a dream car is probably the best way to get over a mid life crisis.
But maybe something a little cheaper.
Me I want a new Tacoma (easy to please plus I don’t drive as much these days LOL).

I got this sticker for my rear window. Maybe I can make others smile, if not me.

A very nice sentiment.
The last bumper sticker I had on my car was as a teenager. I had “avoid hangovers stay drunk”. Yeah that was smart. Just an invitation to get pulled over.
In my thirties I bought the bumper sticker “Happiness is coming”. Never worked up the courage to put it on my car. It is probably still in the garage somewhere.

A less expensive option: rent your dream car for the weekend.
But if you ask me, that’s not what you dream is about.
I think you feel like you are losing control of your life. Your kids are leaving the nest and making decisions not involving you that you may not even like. Maybe your wife is making decisions without your input. And perhaps its slowly dawning on you that at this point your life’s trajectory is pretty well set. Sure you could move, buy a different car, etc but for the most part the amount of $$ you have to adjust course is fixed.
And perhaps your driving skills are starting to degrade just a bit.
Why do I say this? I’m pretty much in the same spot. Slowly it has been dawning on me that my choices are pretty limited. Even at work.
The ink isn’t dry yet, but the chapters of my life are at least penciled in at this point. I’m not sure how I feel about all of this. Not sure at all.
