Are there things that are financially attainable now that you felt were unattainable in your 20s?
I was looking back with some nostalgia on my days in my early 20s when I was really into high end audio gear. I had put together a decent system by buying used stuff. Much better than you could get at Best Buy but really entry level for "audiophile" gear. There was this set of speakers called the PSB Stratus Goldi that I was totally in love with. They still weren't really high end but out of my price range at $2500/pr (and FYI, speakers have really gotten expensive in the last 20 years, PSB's top end speaker is $7500 now). I just saw some on CL for like $500 and had the thought that i could just buy those to see what they sound like. It got me thinking that it's a little weird being in a place that I couldn't even really fathom as recently as 12-13 years ago.
Buying a 911 was a little like that but at the same time the car is >10yrs old and cost the same amount as every full size SUV you see families driving around in so it's doesn't feel like it was much of a reach.
