It’s clinically proven that anyone can experience midlife crisis symptoms more than once since “midlife crisis” is defined as a “transition of identity and self-confidence that can occur in middle-aged individuals, typically 45–64 years old.”
Although I’ve possibly had the best summer of my life, I have to admit I miss my old pawn shop rescued e39. Remember that pile of junk I found on Craigslist for $500? Then by the grace of God, I brought the car back to life and drove it for over a year, creating more driving related memories with my girls that will last beyond my lifetime.
Well there you have it. A second (or 3rd) midlife crisis.
After about a year of driving our beloved Chevy Silverado, and our well appreciated Dodge minivan (that left my family of 6 and my mother in law stranded in Orlando last weekend), I find myself missing the driving experience I thoroughly enjoyed in the 540i in spite of the fact it was, after all, a 20 year old car.
You see, what makes my life a little difficult is, my buddy Stephan owns a newer model of the very same car, same color, same model (540i – e39 series) except his car is a showroom quality, 5.4L 6 speed road & track beast while mine was, at best salvage condition.
Never the less, I give praise to our Lord for blessing my family and I with such an amazing car, and look forward to one day owning another one, God willing.
I don’t know what I’m going to do about this itch I got, another bimmer is not even close to being an option in my life right now, unless I can one to flip? Then for sure Lizzy will let me get one… Forget the fun part, for PROFIT it is then! #MidlifeCrisis ;)
