Default Pick a dumb, yet feasible, automotive purchase

Say you were feeling stupid and decided to buy something, what would it be. I mean something you can afford, but do not need, and would have to be kinda dumb to buy.

For me it's this..i'm tempted to lowball this dude but I'm scared he'll accept, lol. I don't even really like street riding, so I can't explain why I want this thing.

What would yours be

Not a vehicle, but a Whipple supercharger for the Mustang, or a pontoon boat

You want that thing because it looks friggin cool. I don't ride anymore either, but I'd buy it just so I can stick it in my living room as art.

Cashing in a portion of my retirement to get a 56 BelAire convertible. Itís my dream car and at 45 years old with a 1 1/2 year old son Iím going to have to work until lunch on the day of my funeral, retirement is a pipe dream.
Or cash in some of my 401k and get a 65 Mustang convertible for my dad. He had one until the summer of 1970 when someone cut him off and put him through the windshield, one of those miracle cases where being ejected saved a life. Almost 50 years later and he still says had it not been totaled heíd still have it. He sacrificed a lot for me, itíd be nice to return the favor.

Probably the Supra that I have and if it weren’t for the right car, right friend, and right time I probably wouldn’t have done it.

If I really wanted to be foolish, I've always got the Lotus Evora S on my mind. Not crazy expensive for older models, supercar-ish looks, and a supercharged toyota engine. What could possibly go wrong!! There's also the evora 400, but for the prices those go for, there are many other cars I would foolishly purchase before getting one of those.

Tillers are baller for trolling, super popular up north, tons of room to fish without having a console on the boat.
