Of course, I fully agree.Far as the cost you refer to if I had the money, and I have had this question brought to me many times and my response is, People spend how much on a Corvette, Lincoln Navigator, BMW etc etc etc. I have no problem spending the money on such a great peice of machinery!!!
A lot of people ask me the same thing about the cost of my hobby of collecting military vehicles. I just respond with the answer that is a cheaper than the guys that buy the harley motorcycles. I can buy 5-6 army trucks for the price of one nice harley
