First Test Drive

My family and I visited relatives in Fairfax,VA over this past Christmas weekend. My daughter and I snuck away for a few hours to the Tyson's Smart Center. We test drove a 2009 Cabriolet and had a blast! In spite of all the sort comings eluded to on this site we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I am currently configured for a 2009 Silver Brabus Cabriolet with EDD of 01/30/2009 - 04/30/2009. Wallace Rumarger - the sales rep at Tyson Smart Center was most helpful and allowed my daughter and I to take a very long test drive.
My delima remains that in the current economic environement can I justify spending $23,000 on a toy for "Dad". I'm used to making rational finantial decisions. Perhaps I'm going through a mid life crisis or something. The Smart is a "quirky" car and a blast to drive. However the dealership is 2hrs away (VA Beach) and perhaps is not the smartest purchase. But it was so fun to drive!
Any simular thoughts?
