Of course, then the frickin' car decides to break down in about four different ways at once...
My first major car crash stopped me from buying a Nikon D70 so that was a good thing in long term perspective. My second worst car accident made me skip the K-7 which was also the right thing to do as I realized with the K-5 later.

I should have used that for an excuse when I had to tell the missus when I "Accidentally" bought a $10,000 Leica Nocilux 50mm f/0.95 ASPH.
LMAO, that would be some accident

Price seems to keeps increasing on that so consider it an investment Digitalis (damn nice lens)

nice score on the 20 op, i was watching for one myself and bought a lentar 21 m42 lens as a stopgap (f3.8 )

My dog got sick and the vet's bills kept me from getting a chrome tricone Dobro. So now I don't have the guitar, and the dog died anyway. Bugger all. Oh, the topic is cars? Had truck repairs too, got the 4WD fixed so we can motor through the snow. That kept me from getting a new photo workstation computer. It's always just one damn thing after another, as the CEO of the Standard Oil Trust said after their monopoly was broken up by the USA Supreme Court a century ago.

See what happens when you let your noble passions overwhelm you? It's just your inner salamander, running amok. See Leviticus 20:10.
