    I have more respect for nature hippies who sell everything they have and live in a bird poop hut for the rest of their lives. And that is saying something.

    You guys are completely missing the point. The whole point is that he didn't CARE about the stuff, it's not important. IT'S JUST STUFF. This guy traded in a houseful of stuff for a lifetime of memories. I only wish I had the means to do the same.

    A lifetime of memories of using a car to try to obtain memories. Sign me up.....never. You do that and the memories you generate are because of the car, nothing to do with you. SCREAMS shallow.

    I have a houseful of stuff and I'll have a lifetime of memories. I agree that I think this guy sounds like a tool.

    Of course the people I am with are much more important than the stuff I do to me.

    Shallow is buying a house you don't want and filling it with crap that you don't need. This man EXPERIENCED something, and that has more value than any possession you can own.

    You guys even read the whole article or just look at the pictures?

    It is about someone throwing caution to the wind and doing what he wants. At his lowest he did what he wanted too, by traveling the country in a car that he sold everything for.

    At the end of the story, he set ups shop to do something he wants to do and finds the fresh start that he is looking for.

    I think he's stupid but I'm jealous.

    Should have bought a used 30K Vette and did the same thing.

    If he didn't care about stuff, why a Lamborghini? Why not a Ford Taurus? He did care about stuff. The stuff he wanted was a fancy car to make his dong bigger (in his head anyway).

    Did you read the article at all? The guy likes cars. The point is that he sold all the crap he didn't care about, and did something he wanted to do.

    I really think all of you guys should read some philosophy.

    I would rather buy a nice house and never have a mortgage than have a super awesome car.

    I got the point....

    Just found it to be kind of a dumb one. Be nice. But maybe not the most prudent thing to do.

    And if it's just "stuff" - why the 100k+ ride? (that's the dumb part)
