They may look down on us a bit, but I think there's a touch of envy there, too. 
Being able to fix your own problems is a real income booster. Just think how 
much of their income some of those people must spend just getting other people 
to screw up their possessions.

2 years ago I spent the most I ever spent on a car, $4500. That was my "bran' 
new" '71 squareback. At the time it seemed like a fortune to me, but eventually 
I realized that in today's market that was a trivial amount for a beautiful 
condition, well running car.
