There are certain vintage cars that are worth a lot of money, talking about $1 Million or more and they could lose a lot of value if they are driven. So there is always that issue.
That's a rich man's game though, not like MOST people could even buy a car like that now.
They are investments for them.
Or perhaps they are just conspicuous consumption -- a way to flaunt your wealth. In which case driving would be an even more effective way to flaunt your wealth -- "I can own this million dollar car, and I can drive it too, just because I am so rich. It doesn't matter to me if driving it causes it to lose its value".
People that actually have that kind of wealth, deposable wealth
aren't that careless.
They didn't get that wealthy by being stupid.
Most people you see that try and act like they have money
really don't.... All they have is a lot of debt....
And a lot of people that really do have it you would never know it.
I always felt if I somehow ever became rich, I wouldn’t really change much if anything about the clothes I wear, the car I drive, the way I act towards others, etc. Or the knives I carry. Then again, I’ve rarely ever cared what people think of me, and I certainly wouldn’t want to be known as ‘the rich guy’ and having leeches you don’t know and/or don’t even care about you coming out of the woodwork to be your “friends.” I’d rather nobody ever know but me and a few others who are on a need-to-know basis for legal reasons. Plus, people who show off by flaunting their apparent wealth are pathetically desperate for attention and achkowledgement.
Kind of back on topic, however someone enjoys their knives, as long as it’s not for criminal purposes, then more power to them. I have some knives that are used extensively, and some I never use. A couple for sentimental reasons. Mostly the ones I don’t use aren’t used because I like what I like, and the ones I don’t like as much are not used as much. Some other people don’t use their knife because they want it kept sharp for SD purposes. And that’s great, too. There are countless reasons that legitimate knife lovers buy and carry knives, and all are valid.
That said, I still won’t watch any more of the 5 million boring, overly-talkative knife unpackaging youtube videos anymore!
