BTW that car was a Ford Escort 1600sport and it cost 1000 at the time, probably the equivalent to 7000 today. A far cry from the $100k being discussed here.
To be fair it's his parents' money; he shouldn't have to deal w/ a lesser car because some people on the internet told him so. But obviously he hasn't learned the value of money yet.
