Generally when we buy cars, we just buy one – maybe two. One day we think, “It’s time to sell my car,” and when we get rid of that one, we buy a new car.


But some people buy cars like the rest of us buy beers: “I’ll just get the one… Alright, maybe one more…” and before you know it you’re onto number six, and then you wake up the next morning in the middle of a forest, wearing a bear suit and covered in honey.
