We all love your dream...start putting away in your 401K now..
You can get a 1999 Porsche 911 for around the cost of a Civic, do the work myself, assuming I don't run into the dreaded IMS failure and take out the engine it shouldn't be to bad to run. But yes, I do tend to have expensive taste. I also grew up making 5 an hour working for my dad in a manufacturing plant (he owned it) busting my ass so I tend to be... frugal. A lot of finance calculators will say I can afford around 50% to twice what I actually could bring myself to do when it comes to buying a house or car.

As for the 401k, i'm doing the max my company will match, and then more then that again personally.
