In the spirit of continuing to provide spirited off topic forums with high entertainment value, I have a question for you all...
Have you had encounters with the truly rich, and what do they drive?
This is an offshoot of the thread on Financial Wisdom for under 30's, since I took some heat for saying that "flash" should be avoided.
Over the years, having worked in the art field, I have been acquainted with a few very wealthy folks, and have noticed their cars. My sense is that Hollywood types do go for "flash" -- for example I saw Bruce Willis in Malibu not long ago in an outrageous Yellow Ferrari -- but that the truly rich avoid showy cars.
Here are some car memories I have:
Norman Lear, in the late 70's, drove to work in a 1963 VW beetle.
Eli Broad, in the early 80's drove a ten year old Mercedes 280 SE. Nothing fancy, but well taken care of.
A friend of mine was rear ended by Rupert
Your car sightings please...
