#AskLeo - What car would you want to buy with crypto?

Hi,

today, a more relaxed post, as life is already too serious. As we have now a nice bull run in the past months, and we have some car manufacturer offering cars that can be paid in crypto.

For the #AskLeo series, started by @acesontop, I would like to know what car would you buy with crypto, if you would buy one?

As in some previous posts, I wrote that I would keep my crypto and not spend it on something that loses its value.

But today it is a fun day, so I will go with the car of my choice:

At our wedding (which happens to be on the 19th of February), we rented an old Mustang from 1965 that was also a cabriolet. Yes, with the cabriolet in a freezing cabriolet, where the heat was not functioning.

That old car I would buy, that specific car. I had many cars in my 20 years of driving, some real bad, some of which I enjoyed driving, some real posh and some that looked poor.

When I started the university, I was the only one in my dorm owning a foreign car, there were two other with Dacia from the 1980, and I had an Audi from 1990 and this was in 2001. That Audi was bought with 120k km, and I've sold it with 497k km. Almost half of million km in 5 years. I love it, but I would not buy it back.

The most fun was a Z3. This car started my love for sports cabriolets. It was purely fun. Another fun car that surprised me was an Audi A8, the first of the series with 4.2l motor.

I had also smaller cars, like a Peugeot 206,207 a Chevy Spark (0.8l engine) and many others.

I was buying most from Germany, put them for sale and used them as daily drives till I've sold them. The Audi A8 was the fastest flip, the Z3 the longest. It was a good business flipping cars from 2001-2011. I've made more money than on my day job as an engineer. A flip could ensure me two months salary, which is insane.

Now back to my story, the only car I would buy would be that Mustang from 1965 that we rented for our wedding. This is it.

Don't get me wrong, I love the G-Wagon or the Wraith, but I would not buy them. And I would not buy a Tesla either. :)

So what would be your crypto car of choice?

Best car...rumours say that it can run with vodka.

Also I hope you meant the original one, not the Chevrolet Niva which is an ugly thing.

all Lambo membes need to be re-done with Tesla. Cryptospace owes that to Elon 😝

:)))

Tesla can't be tuned as a Lambo...and does not look so lit either :D

Is there a Lambo in space? A Tesla is!
And believe me, they can be tuned A LOT, even remotely. Even if it's not yours :p

:)

The tune yes, but only by Tesla, if you want to do something by yourself, you can forget the car. :)

Cooles Auto! Zum Glück gibts dafür das H-Kennzeichen, weil ansonsten würde es auf der Verbotsliste unserer Politiker stehen.

I would like some kind of old muscle car as well. Probably a Plymouth Barracuda or a Ford Galaxie. If I couldn't get one of those I would probably buy an Audi with my crypto, but I think @slobberchops already beat me to that in real life! Unless he was just pulling our leg!

I got a Ford in the end. Not as exciting but the Audi I had my eye on had no service history and @goblinknackers talked me out of it (he's into his luxury cars). It is almost brand new with only 1600 miles. Not exactly a crypto-car but maybe a 20% one.

WHAT! No way. Well, I hold Ford stock so I can't really complain to much I guess. That sounds really similar to my wife's Buick we bought. Very low miles and no previous issues.

The thing is I'm stuck inside and can't go out due to lockdown crap. Got the car Tuesday and it's had just one run out. I guess it is destined to have have low mileage!

You can't even go for a drive during lockdown? That is crazy.

We can..., but it's supposed to be for essentials. Taking a trip to the local Costa for a coffee is not exactly essential, but as Costa is open.. it seems a legitimate venue. Do you have Costa over there?

No, not that I know of. I am not a big coffee drinker anyway. I'd rather have tea! My state actually just opened up dining in person again. They are limited to 25% capacity and they have a 10 PM curfew though. It will be interesting to see how the Lenten fish fries handle all of this.

Mercedes S500 4 MATIC or and AUDI S8. I have one friend who has the S Klasse without the 4 MATIC option and the other has the S8. The Merc has more comfort, the Audi a bit sportier and an insane sound. Would only buy and hold them for a year or so as at this point they can't loose much value anymore.

I drive now a 4MATIC made in late 19 (not an S) and I like it. It is comfortable enough and spacious for it's class. The 4MATIC saved me a couple of times, especially with the big snow that was here a week ago. As I drive around 100k-120k km a year, I need a save and comfortable car and in the budget that I had from the company, this was the best deal.

The only car you're allowed to buy with crypto is the Lambo XD.

I would then buy the Countach as an old school car. :)

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Yes, is an iconic car, when I was kid i had a Micromachine's grey Countach, it was my favourite by far 😁

I was six when I got my first Countach and I loved it. Good memories :)
