Upgrading (I won the PCH lottery!)

So I am pretty excited about my upgrade. I have a 2005 AM TL, and I am upgrading to a 2010 Nissan GTR- premium Black on Black.

Many of you may be wondering how someone can just upgrade from a $20,000 to a $90,000... the answer is simple..... I'M RIIIICCCCHHHH B********CCCHHHHH.....
I won the lottery yesturday... I will not disclose how much I won, but lets say I am retireing early.... and buying an island.... (JK, I didn't win THAT much, but I am retiring).... unfortunatly, it's hard to find a new GTR around my area, and will probably need to go far to find the one I want, but I will post pics of the GTR as soon as I get it.....

I'm still keeping my TL just cuz I really really love that car..... see you guys later....

Retiring @ 21yrs old??

You still have a while to live (maybe) and might be jumping the gun....

Now that the market is back on it's upswing (slowly), might be worth it to look at some investments. Or think about a long Term Deposit.

But hey, it's your cash.... congrats....... If you feel like donating your TL anytime, I'll be willing to take it off your hands.

LOL. this is gonna be trouble..

You're gonna have "family" coming out of the woodwork now asking if you can 'help them out'....

I'm assuming by ignoring my comment about 'donating' your TL, you're trying to be nice instead of telling me to F-off!

LOL. yea. Everyone gets those envelopes.

Unless you have an old guy with a $hitload of balloons knocking on your door and a (not so) good looking chick behind him holding a cheque with your name on it, they're just trying to phish you.

For you I hope it's true.

However, with the info that you've said it sounds like a joke or something. I'll believe it when I see you sitting in that GT-R with loads of cash in your hands!

Giant check pics or it didn't happen

Oh, something tells me if you really did win, it will be gone before you know it if you are to "retire." Talk to a lawyer, have them set up a trust, and go from there.

PCH. This is a serious question: Is this the thing that comes in the mail, postage stamped "Third Class Bulk Mailing", stuffed with a bunch of coupons and the details of my winnings that need to be claimed immediately?

I wouldn't place that order for the GT-R just yet.
