Addicted?

Does anyone know if 'car addiction' is an actual addiction? If so, I believe I have a closet car-addiction sufferer, and his name is Brandon. This man, who apparently has the self-control of a 5 year old boy in a candy or toy store, cannot say no to a good deal. So, we find ourselves having 4 cars here soon...assuming we can get the money to pay for his latest project: a 1950 Cadillac. She is *gorgeous* and like, the barn find of the century. I can't fail to mention that she's cheap (someone apparently doesn't know the value of this car) and we have to move fast! So yeah, we're liquidating our house, practically! The baby stuff is all going, we're trying to get rid of the Blazer...he even put his paintball gun up for sale which has, to my surprise, been the biggest hit on Craigslist of the million items we have on there! LOL, then there's the lady who offered me $20 for a bike that is worth about 10 times that :) That was funny. We're only asking $75 for a bike that's worth a pretty good amount of money, and she comes in with a $20 offer. I just giggled and told her no thanks, not being mean or anything but honestly, 20 bucks is a bit silly.

So yeah...we're going to meet the guy tonight, give him some money to hold the car for us. He's in a band and will be going on tour throughout August, so we kind of have to wait until the end of the month to get the car, but as long as we actually GET the car, I don't mind giving him some money up front, provided he practically signs his life away to us saying that he won't sell the car to anyone else. Oh yeah, and it gives us some time to get our stuff in order since we're in the process of refinancing. So, we'll see how that goes!
