Funny, isn't it, this consumerism and upgraditis which, thankfully, eludes me.
Been in the same house since 1984, (albeit with several major improvement projects), same car since 1994, my motorcycles are 13 and 12 years old, main speakers are 12 year old as is the Plasma TV, the rear speakers are 30 years old etc. etc.
I think that is quite unusual but, for me, if it does what I want it to do and it still works, why replace it?
Mind you I did enjoy driving my friend's recentish vintage Porsche 911 still worth about $60k today.
But I'll keep my MX5 Miata Type R, worth, oh, maybe $4000?
