seriously, how does one do this?

i’m currently going through another “i can’t stop spazzing about convertibles” phase. it’s really bad, i tell you! at the moment i am in the process of figuring out how i can seriously afford one without dying from starvation and poverty for the rest of my life, and it’s harder than i thought. last night i was up late juggling numbers and writing up a budget – this was also a lot harder than i had anticipated and resulted in me having far too many wines! how does one decide they are ready to take the leap from having one car to more than one? is it when you realise you can’t keep doing the things you want to your car and still drive it on a daily basis? whatever it is, i just feel like my time is coming and that i need to plan for it.

my heart is absolutely set on getting an s2000, however from somewhere in the back of my head i can hear a voice shouting ‘but you could get an mx-5 for half the price and make it look cool for way cheaper!’ i’m pretty sure the internet knows about this internal argument going on inside my brain, i honestly swear every website in the world is posting up new super rad convertibles 100x more than usual just to f*ck with me.

  3. I've been looking through your whole blog and I must say, seeing your mx-5 transform is such an inspiration plus your old BB was sick XD. I just had to comment on this post though cause I totally feel how you felt when you wrote this. I'm an enthusiast myself, but far from the great level of knowledge you're in. I just got a ride last year and I'm 21 lol but sadly i can't stick with it long enough to experiment with my first build. Will be moving state side soon and the first thing on my mind was copping a new ride that I actually wanted, budget wise had to change so many decisions, but I'm hoping to not have to change it again lol. I'll ride the bus for as long as I can till I could afford her (*DC-5). Thanks for sharing such an awesome view! You're an inspiration to many of us Females who appreciates the scene. =D

  4. Hey Nix, thanks so much for your comment and sorry it has taken me so long to reply! It is definitely hard at a young age (and not having uber-rich mummy and daddy haha) to own and build your own ride but I really believe that where there is a will, there is a way! I don't earn very much and I'm only 22 as well but I'm slowly realising that it's just not all about money. My project is low budget and to others it's not perfect but to me, it's the most perfect car in the world and that's all that matters! Buying little things for it and saving a little bit each month makes it that much more exciting when I get to see progress on the car. It might take a couple of years to finish to the standard I want but it'll be worth the wait for sure. I really hope you hang in there and one day get your dream car and make her beautiful!!! Good luck :)
