My brother loves his cars. And it has become a bit of a standing joke. You see he is a student who can barely afford to eat, yet he manages to keep upgrading his cars. How many financially poor students do you know who during their time at university (albeit through a 5 year course) has 2 cars at a point? Has car brand names such as Mercedes and BMW (and not very old models). The flat he lives in even has automotive lifts, which he claims is important because it means he can protect his cars.
So yes, no money for food, but lets splash out on a garage space because well, we have to protect the car!
