Like stocks, shares and barrow bonds. It’s an asset on a balance sheet.

If I had a windfall and put a $500k bid in for it, I’d get it recommissioned and bloody drive the thing. It’s still on 40yr old as delivered slicks :dope:

Reminds of a good friend of mine who has an Anniversary edition red Lamborghini Countach (looks like a spaceship this car as for the soundtrack its something else with Larinis), bought it well over a decade ago and credit to him as he drives it a lot , stone chips, windscreen chips , he paints the front every 2 or 3 years and has clocked some decent Km in it (not a daily).

The Countach is my windfall car. Hopefully one day... :hope:
