To pretend your $15,0000 Mustang is the same as a $400,000 Lamborghini?

because sometimes depreciation takes to long.

My uncle had a brand new 1969 Mustang Mach I w/ Super Cobra Jet 428. When my cousin (his youngest son) was back in town from Michigan, and I was up from UCLA, Unc, had finally broken his muscle car in, and it was ready for some more serious driving.... So he gets home from his SF office, and after parking in the garage, he walks into the den (where cuz and I were sitting watching TV), w/ the biggest grin we'd ever seen on him. He stops w/ the den door still open, and while beaming w/ pride, in his best Clint Eastwood/Dirty Harry fashion, says "Ya'know, my car is fast; REAL FAST!...."

Well, the night before, cuz and I had been out in Unc's hot rod, and had found out for ourselves that it was, in fact, really fast. In fact, too fast for its own speedometer..... While seeing just how fast it was on a virtually vacant stretch of I-280 (which was under construction at the time), after pinning the speedo needle at its paltry 120mph top end, the needle stuck there. How the hell were we ever gonna explain that one? Well, after pulling off to the side of the road to discuss the situation, I came up w/ what I thought might be a brilliant plan..... get it up to ~120mph again, and feather the throttle and hope that the bump on the speedo's spindle reengages the detente on the needle's mounting hole....

Thankfully, after a couple of high speed attempts, the needle got its mojo back, and we were saved from having to fabricate a believable explanation for a broken speedo needle. I'm not sure if either of our hearts had fully recovered by the time Unc showed up in his den's doorway, but cuz and I were both like deer in headlights when Unc started talking about how fast his car was in that ominous tone. Not immediately sure whether we were safe, or had been busted...., until Unc reveled about how fast his pony car galloped from 50 to ~100. Cuz and I then pretended to appreciate that Unc was the person that first discovered how fast his car was......

and that's my fast-looking, metallic blue w/ black interior, Mustang flashback.....
triggered by an eerily similar looking implementation, 41 years its junior.

Buzz, good story (not unusual). And, the gearhead in me wants to know... you know, what happened to said vehicle?

Unc and cuz, and and even older bro cuz had too many nice/muscle cars to remember at this point, but that Mach I was definitely one of my faves (and I sure they'd kept that one, especially so). Pretty (99.44%) sure Unc's next ride was the Boss 302, circa 1972, that afterwards, we all wished Unc had just kept the Mach I.

The cars they had back then are collectively worth in the millions today. Total gearheads there, too. Cuz is still satisfying his muscle car Jones, while Unc fell victim to more sedate wheels at around age 80; though his last couple of cars were robust Caddy's from the 1990's. He drove until he passed away in 2000, in his early 90's.

Pretty much all their cars were swapped/traded locally in the San Mateo/Santa Clara Counties area, and it was kinda fun over the years to see their old cars being driven around town by their new owners. I love cars, but w/ so many friends and relatives diving head first into the fun stuff, I've never felt the need to torture myself w/ ownership.
