What's love got to do with it?
I've been waiting to see some of the responses to this thread, and have ended up with the same nagging thought as sanctuarysam. That being said, here's my two cents:
Which vintage car would you rather own? A Mazda RX-7 or a Jaguar E-type? Having been there I can say that the Mazda is the far better car for 98% of my driving and proved to be quite nice in all aspects. But, then I'd just look at the Jag and remember the few times the SU carbs were tuned just right, of course forgetting about wipers that don't work in the rain, head lights that don't work nights, and a heater box that par-boils your foot until it rusts out. Depends on where you're at right now. Single/no obligations-Jag. Married/expected to actually be someplace on time-Mazda.
Boats, like sports cars, are not a necessity and so different ones make sense at different times. Some men actually carry this thinking into the realm of relations with the fairer sex, but I wouldn't go there myself.
