My sister keeps getting new cars. This is not her idea, though she did want to trade the roll-over/don't stop Ford in. It is my brother-in-law's idea. He wants their cars to show how important they are, in case you don't know.
This week my sister lost her Suburban and her BMW. She got a Hummer instead. I don't know. Anyone out there who wouldn't like to be driving her car?
Her husband traded in his Mercedes and has ordered a Bentley. Apparently only 55 a year are sold, so he'll stick out as unusual. (Or maybe they only sell that money because that's how many people will spend the money for one.) The regional base cost for this car is $296,000. That's more than ten times what my original house cost. More than ten times what my most expensive car ever cost. Amazing.
