Just curious what you guys do to afford to keep up with this hobby/sport. I mean its not cheap as we all know. Maintenance, repairs, upgrades and then fuel to get them there and back. I work for CSX Railroad and do pretty good, but my old lady is the bread winner doing computer software. I see so many guys with some really nice **** and I often wonder what they do for work. I mean I dont hurt for anything and life doesnt suck, but I was just curious what some of you guys did to afford your pile of parts.

For most its years of accumulating parts or making upgrades over time. For others its walking into a shop and putting a credit card on file and saying build it!!

Parts still gotta be bought or traded off. I know it takes time and or money. That's what I'm asking is what people actually do for work to buy the **** they have.

ive often wondered the same thing. Ive been pretty blessed to have what I have but a $40K weekend toy just doesnt fit in the budget anywhere. I do custom boat windows and my wife is a nurse. We bank a decent amount throughout the year but not enough to get into rockbouncing lol. Im just glad some people can afford it b/c i like watching the beat downs they put on them :****:

That has to pay good. He never has told me what it paid but he said he never worried about when the next pay day was.
