I am too, but not by choice.

I would, however, be thoughtful of planning for your future, as without children, you may not have someone to help with you as you age. So filling a driveway of a house that isn't even yours with expensive cars may not be the wisest economic decision unless you have a LOT of disposable income. Investment in real estate (your own, not someone else's) and sacking away as high of a percentage of your income before taxes as the gov't allows annually will pay out later in life.

And know that, as a car guy, this fact kinda sucks. But, that's the way it goes. Fortunately I can get "my fix" with cars and still earn a living. I could not imagine NOT having my career and my hobby being completely different. I certainly couldn't afford it.
