There was a point in time I wanted a very particular vintage, fancy car. I’m not even sure why I wanted this car except that I just knew I would love riding in it, feeling the wind in my hair as I tooled along a deserted ocean road near a particular obscure beach.
It was just this image I had in my mind that had made me feel like I NEEDED this car.
Then, one day it occurred to me that I honestly did not want to truly OWN this car. I wanted to RIDE IN or DRIVE the car. In that one particular daydream, that one particular scene.
I didn’t want to own the car at all!
This came as a huge relief to me, because every time I thought about owning this car, I’d become almost dizzy with fear about how I would actually take care of and insure the thing once I came into possession of it.
I began to look online to see what my options were, and lo and behold – much to my delight, there are places where I can just RENT the car!
Seriously! For 24 blissful hours, the car would be mine to enjoy for less than a weekend at my favorite beach!
Think of the advantages. I can rent a fully restored classic dream car (think 1950’s or 60’s classics)– or a newer totally exotic dream car (like a gorgeous red 2015 Ferrari 458 Spider, or very hot, orange 2013 Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder LP570-4 Performante).
I wouldn’t have to worry about where I’m going to store the car once I’m done with my excursion. No worries about insurance, keeping it cleaned and detailed… none of the headaches that come with physically owning the car.
And then, when I want to check out a DIFFERENT car, I’m free to do so!
Now, some of us here on MyFavDeals.org are really into cars, and even THEY see the value in renting something when they have the urge to cruise around in something like that Lamborghini. Also, I know people who own really fancy cars – that’s their thing.
But for me, my entire desire to drive an exotic vehicle will be completely, 100% satisfied any time I want – and all it takes is a trip to a classic or exotic car rental place. Boom. My wish is granted.
And boy, what a lot of fun!! I’ll do it many times over, I’m sure. If this is something that sounds like fun to you – take a look at some of the places that rent awesome cars on your next vacation (or in your area, if you live near a place that rents – like this place that rents luxury cars in Las Vegas!). Drive on!
