I saw a promo for a reality series I never watched where someone asked a parent (who was clearly vexed with their child's life choices):

- Don't you want your child to have a better life then you?
- (deadpan) - No, not really

SO you are fine :-)

A little bit of Apple Stock.

In retrospect, considering the last week's run up of TSLA stock, I should have just swapped Apple for Tesla!

Lou in SoCal | May 13, 2013

Mercedes CLS AMG and a couple Panerai's.

My Mother's future grave site.

I am kidding! She's going to be cremated.

A few stocks, I think. Nothing painful.

brycelisah | May 13, 2013

Sold 2006 M5 two weeks ago and bought tesla stock with it. Paid for all the options already including the performance + package! Picking it up this Sat!

Xerogas | May 13, 2013

Selling a 2012 Honda Insight, which should get me $18K closer to paying off the Tesla, but for the remainder I'm getting a 1.49% 6-year loan from Alliant Credit Union. That loan is so cheap that I know I can do better in the stock market (heck, even my local credit union will give me 2% CD for 5 years). Effectively I'm making money on the loan ;)

Oh yeah, and a bunch of ISRG stock that was up 600%

brycelisah | May 13, 2013


ISRG....nice sounds like you are an urologist doing some prostrate surgery or with your ID might be anesthesiologist using a lot of propofol without the sevo.

2003 BMW z4 and 2006 Honda Civic Hybrid and whatever my wife wants for the next couple of years

Xerogas | May 13, 2013

brycelisah, funny -- took me a minute to get it! "Xerogas" is my vanity plate for I bought my last tank of gas. Ever. Wednesday I pick up my Tesla.

As for propofol...nah I'm just a software engineer. Motley Fool helps me make investment decisions; had never heard of ISRG before they highlighted it a few years back.

George with SacEV | May 14, 2013

My first born. Oh, we don't have any kids and maybe that is why we can afford the Model S. we still have a 2011 Leaf on lease, but the Model S will replace that in ALL of our general driving. However we still have about 6 months to go on that lease.

Brian H | May 14, 2013

Leases can be sold. Google it.

Hours - a lot of them..

ZoomZoom | May 14, 2013

2007 Nissan Altima Hybrid - fully loaded. Been saving for years and was committed to buying the first EV I saw with enough room to comfortably carry two sets of golf clubs and hand carts. Lucky for me Tesla Model S came along. Will pick mine up at the factory this Sunday! Stopping by one of my favorite tracks (Callippe Preserve) on the way home...

kevonandmarion, so your getting her an MS as well... ?! :)

Volvo C30 1.6Diesel.

I think the P85 is a bit quicker of the line than the Volvo... Also a bit more spacious....

Wow i've never heard of a CLS65 AMG; could swear Mercedes never produced a CLS in the '65'
What year car was that?

rdalcanto | May 14, 2013

Selling my 2012 Porsche 911S :(

Dewittekoen | May 14, 2013

@sunkat; it's a typo, should be CLS AMG 63 -:)

hfcolvin | May 14, 2013

2006 Prius and a down payment on a vacation home somewhere. Sold future interest in Zipp 303 Firecrest bike wheels to pay for the service plan. Well, I may go ahead and get those anyway.

The new Plug In Prius will go when the Gen III comes out.

A considerable portion of my (and my wife's!) stock portfolio. Donated my 13 year-old Honda Civic (not worth too much).

NKYTA | May 14, 2013

1985 Corvette, some stock and still owe on my first car loan ever. But happily will be using some proceeds from selling a portion of my TSLA shares today at $96 to pay off pricincipal. Wish I would have gambled and got 3500 shares around $20/share like someone else on this forum!

Nothing. Keeping our 2006 RX400h (longest time I've ever had a car), but we might get rid of it soon... still debating. Also keeping our 2012 Odyssey Touring Elite, as we have 3 kids (2 of them still in car seats, although 1st kid LOVES the jump seats) and a grandma. Also keeping my 2006 Ducati S2R 1000 :D
