I couldn't agree more with that. Spending money you don't have is 
beyond stupid. But people do it all the time with SUVs and Pickup 
Trucks that get into those price ranges. Although most time it's 
usually a two-income household.

Now to play devils advocate, you'd be surprised just how many people 
can actually afford cars like this. How? They live in older, or rual 
houses that are already paid off. So with no monthly mortgage, that 
extra money goes for paying off expensive cars and trucks. Take a 
drive through the country by-ways and you'd be amazed just what you 
see. On Highway 13 in Mississippi I found some older house with a 
couple of lawn mowers rusting in the front yard, and a C5 Corvette 
parked under a tree, covered in dirt with tall grass growing up around 
it's flat tires. Kinda neat to see some future barn-find in the 
making. But the point is that people's ability to afford things can't 
always be based upon their income.
