    This is interesting. There's tons of similar programs already out there, but this is the shortest one that I'm aware of. The pricetag is also on the low end. I guess their business strategy is to get those who want a fast and relatively cheap doctorate.

    Or, for exactly the same money, you could get a brand-new Mazda MX-5 Miata - a fast and relatively cheap car.

    Or a pre-owned Civic in good condition and 300 bottles of Hennessy V.S.O.P.

    Sure, but done right, an education appreciates, not depreciates.

    Yes - done right. Possibly. Sometimes cars appreciate, too. Takes a while, though. Wouldn't mind having my Dad's 41 Plymouth. Would be worth a whole lot more than he paid. Worth more than my dream, a '49 through '54 Triumph Renown. Classy car. Pic here: https://www.bonhams.com/auctions/15347/lot/628/
    Cheap - but not fast. Listed as "one of the 20 slowest cars of all time." 110 cu. in. of single-carb fury. No wonder! what is strange is that the same engine also powered the smallest Jaguar of that year - different carb. (Solex vs. S.U.)

    "Will my fast, cheap doctorate impress my fast, cheap boss -- or get me a fast, cheap girlfriend?" Well no, probably not - but the right car might... you never know. Or the right doctorate... possibly.

    While we're on cars, why do the bad guys' cars go for so much more than those of the good guys? At one auction, an ex-King George VI Lanchester went for 60,000 pounds. A car once owned by Adolf Hitler - millions! A 1940 Cadillac is usually expensive. But one that was ex-Al Capone? Wow!!

    We now interrupt this car thread to bring you our regular programming...

    Oh, I doubt that. Right out of the gate, that is. I suspect every single one of those appreciating classics depreciated first, only to bounce back later because of collectors.

    Right. That's always the way. It's a bit like earning a doctorate, though; patience (to earn the Doc.) pays off, but the car takes even longer before you get a return .... much longer, usually. I was bored with the fast/cheap doctorate discussion - so I switched to cars etc. You can have the thread back, now - totally - if you like. Just wanted an excuse to show the Triumph pic. Done here. :)

    I always thought Triumphs were cool. But they were always maintenance hogs. The TR-7 (the "flying wedge") was my favorite back in the day. But by the time I could afford one, they were long gone.

    As for the doctorate, YMMV. I earned it all back in the second year after graduation, so it was okay by me.

    That's terrific. I wonder how many can say that.
