What percentage or proportion of your income could/should/would allocate to your car hobby. And I realize that this will differ for everyone. Someone making 50k in New York City, should not buy an expensive car, or a car period (although it is certainly doable, if you are frugal).

But for someone living in the midwest, and making a 50k salary. How much of it would you allocate towards a car.

I’m curious to what you guys think.
