    Parent's and their Mid-Life crisises.

    Discussion started by ETHREADZNY - Aug 19, 2003

    My father has finally reached it, a little bit late age 55, but he did. anyway everyday consist of him looking through car magazines and boat magazines, looking to buy a sports boat, or a muscle car. within less then a year he has spent over 4 thousand dollars on a porject car. It is almost comical to hear my family argue about not letting my father order parts from jeg's parts. anyways who has witness their parts reach this crisis, and do you have any stories.

    It's funny someone started this thread, since I just found a post-it note which reads...
    M5
    Chip - $250
    Cam Sprocket - $160
    Susp - $1100-1500 + Labor
    Control Arm Bush - $50 each

    Very, very nice

    The only sign i got is that he decided, at the tender age of 59, to start a lecture campaign on how i shouldnt be in a steady relationship for so many years...tsk, tsk, tsk...His best friend bought a 320HP car..maybe they're cruising around in it outside of clubs or shit.

    Dad bought a motorcycle at 44, complete with shirts with skulls on them and appropiate leatherwear. Knowing dad's extremely decelerated rate of maturity though, he won't hit his real mid-life crisis until he's 80.

    My pop just bought a M5 (one of the nicest cars ever) ON CHROME! and goes to Vegas like 6 times a year, and numerous tropical destinations with the moms. Although when your rich as fuck is there such a thing as a midlife. Its life.

    my dad got it so fucking hard. he started traveling to italy and grease by himself. he bought a lotus in red, so classic. he also works on a tiger, which he races in newfoundland every year. last year he got in this crash, and now they show the race on one of those racing networks all the time. its sooo fucking funny.
