Casey James > I was talking to a very good friend of mine the other day and, in conversations about life and family etc, he proposed a scenario where he would understand me selling the Supra. I jumped out of my skeleton and had to quickly correct him on the subject matter. There are only two scenarios where the Supra would be sold: A) That I'm dead AF -- or -- B) That someone I know is dying and it's the only way to save a life. I then told him that I loved him to death, but bruhhhh...don't go to jail, because I'm not gonna sell that shit for bail money on account of your dumb-ass going to the big-house. In other words, DONT FUCK UP!
Those are my moral sensibilities (not to be applied onto others in that radical format), but it comes from a place of passion and pride. That passion and pride, however, is one we all here share. It's a sliding scale for everyone, but like JSS said...if you're not in "dire financial need"...and/or...if nobody is dying, then stick with it.
Like many others, my Supra has been on the shelf for 3-years now. Like Patrick94TT said, there have been months on end when I'm down-and-out and I can't even look at the car. Moments, when I'm not buying parts and nothing is moving. Moments when my builder has taken months-on-end to get anything done. Still water and depression.
But that's life man, career, cars...relationships, hell -- kids. Don't give up on the things and people you love. Don't give up on your passions no matter how dark it seems sometimes. That break-thru moment is right around the corner. If you fold, you'll never experience or even know how close you got. That's your personal stamp of authenticity. When you give that up, you're done in general -- pack it up and move into Century Village.
If that's not you, then fight thru that shit and get it done! That's the life example you set, that -- NO MATTER WHAT -- you get it done. Let that be your story...
