Finally....After Chasing It for 15 Years.....

Yesterday, I bought a 2021 Escalade.


This isn't a linkedin "humnblebrag" or any of that bullshit. Not even a brag, but I figure this community might have a few souls who I can share a little excitement with without getting roasted


I've always loved cars, its one of my things. I've owned many of them over the years, but the Everest of cars for me has always been the Escalade. I've had Tahoe's, Explorers, Trailblazers, Denali's, and last but not least Minivans (I'm have 4 kids). I've been close, but there has always been something holding me back from pulling the trigger. The 2021 model is freaking ridiculous, and while I know it won't last -- my smile yesterday was ear to ear.


So, I ask you WR, what is your "top of the mountain" purchase?

Hoping to purchase an older wake/surf boat by next summer. Will be my first boat and a huge bucket list item for me. Congrats on the purchase and keep up the stoke!Β

A private jet. Today id buy an Airbus A220, but the latest and greatest when I can finally afford it. . Plus, in my vision of a private jet, the vision isn’t complete if I don’t have the properties to go with it. . I have a dream of own palaces (literal palaces) that I build in all my favourite destinations around the world. And each of these palaces has a private airstrip. I can takeoff and land on my property, continent to continent, without anyone ever know if I was coming or going. . One day I’ll have both, and I won’t have one without the other.

This is so awesome to hear! Why work your ass off everyday, every year and never treat yo self?! Last year, we put in a luxury kitchen in our house. At the beginning of the year, I told my boss that I needed to sell β€œx” amount to buy my kitchen and he did everything in his power to keep me on track and motivated to make it happen.

yeah, the next mountain for me only comes with some sort of exit, large payoff. At that level, its more about what's in my "stable" than a single car.Β  But from an exotic standpoint I've always been a Ferrari guy.Β  Beauty on wheels.Β

Congrats! There’s nothing like smiling ear-to-ear when you walk out to your car every day. My Everest is hiring an interior decorator to come decorate my house. I hate decorating, but I have a beautiful home that I want to shine.

It’s pretty amazing. Drove 40 minutes home on the highway. No steering wheel needed. It’s got some work needed to improve its location coverage, but it will get there

Ah, when the dream becomes reality. I hope you grabbed that cold beer and drank it knowing you just ticked a box of that bucket list - all whilst not driving the car of course.

Congrats on the purchase! Good for you. Escalades are so rare in the EU, but they are awesome!Β 

I've been chasing after a house of my own complete with a nice garage/workshop for fixing up an old car of some sort. I bought the house about a year ago, and the garage was finished a couple of months ago. About a month ago I bought an old Japanese soon-to-be classic car - and I'm pretty happy with it. The next step would be an old air-cooled classic of some sort I think, maybe a Porsche πŸš€

For me I think it would have to be a Range Rover top of the line. Those things are like royal chariots. Congrats mate!

My first year after crushing it I went out and bought my wife a Tahoe which she always wanted. I know I could’ve been responsible but sometimes you have to celebrate the wins!

Congrats! What a tough question to answer, I'm more of a 'saver' but if I could, it would be a loaded M5. Have been a BMW guy since I was 16.

Hell yeah! Congrats. The new Escalade is sick.Β 

Mine would have to be the Benz AMG GTR / 911 Sport Classic with the ducktail / Ferrari 458. Hopefully one of these is only 2 years away πŸ˜‚
