I've been reflecting today about the reason behind purchasing or justifying purchasing my Caterham. I had two reasons, the first being an absolutely horrendous work load causing me huge amounts of stress. I needed a peaceful break away from any communication and to feel like I was working for something.
Secondly, I was always planning on buying one with redundancy that never progressed. To be able to purchase an even better model, off my own back, was a real achievement.
Now that I have shared my reasons, I would be interested to see those of others. Owning a car like this is a real achievement, having a pure toy and being able to actually drive it to it's potential should be something to be proud of.
