The car is one thing. Spending some time in civilisation is another. I'd like to wake up occasionally in a place where this isn't the lead story in the newspaper.

if you are going to keep a car over there you don't want it to be an OHOS, they require a great deal of maintenance and looking after.

Better to have a new car with warranty that won't(touching wood) breakdown every 10 minutes.......

As much as I like the initial idea, I liken it to owning a holiday house which compels you to visit the same location perhaps more than you would had you not had the investment there. You always seem to be able to hire amazing cars on your trips you post on here. At least this way you continue to have the choice and also don't need to invest the capital.

Surely there's a time in ones life where investing for the future should be wound back and the spending can begin.

The ones I know lust after them. Probably because they fail to think it through as usual.
