Yesterday I was in one of the local ford dealers looking at the new Fiesta and Focus. Thought i'd check those cars out as a good reliable daily. Very good on Petrol and both cars a re very smart looking units. Anyway I ran into someone I know, who couldn't decided between the GT and the Typhoon. He was just about to make his purchase. So this got me thinking on the way home about my aspirations to oneday own my own GT. Anyway, I had to speak to the bank this morning on a home loan matter and raised the question about an increase to cover the cost of a new GT. And it didn't seem to be a problem. She says it will have to be approved, but going by assests and your income, its going to no drama. So this had me thinking very hard. Should I or shouldn't I. Then this little voice in the back of my head said, rate rises, petrol rise, insurance's, running costs, mods and for the first time in my life, I actually said no to something that is very affordable. The opportunity is right for the taking, and I turned it down. I've never been too smart when it comes to money, but maybe now, its a good time for me to start
Weird how somethings work, but I think what I have at the moment, is more important that having something for the hell of it.
I've set my goals for a GT in 2 years. Don't want the P, because I don't want things like brembo's, and just getting into a GT would be a dream. I'm keeping my AU 3 XR6, cause its a great looking car and is reliable. Don't think I could part with it yet.
Anyway, just wanted to share my thoughts with people.
