Dude is just stopping by to buy oxys.
Or visit his mom
Why not both?
If this is Florida it’s definitely both.
Florida man here, can confirm most people in trailers own cars worth more than their trailers
Not everyone who knows you have a bugatti knows you live in a trailer, but everyone who knows you live in a trailer sees your bugatti. Bi-winning
Yeah and everyone who lives in a trailer beside you will want to steal your Bugatti. Winning!!
not even the dumbest of criminals would actually bother trying to steal a Bugatti though.
If I had the skill set to steal a car I'd be tempted to steal this one. Then I'd joyride the shit out of it at 175 mph for about three minutes before wrapping it and myself around a utility pole.
I don't have a fast driving skill set either.
joyriders would. enjoy your $1 million repair bill...
The term is “ghetto balling”
My ex's mother. My ex wouldn't buy from his mother, but his brothers and sisters would. She'd deal out of her singlewide, keeping the pills in flashlights. She'd simply hand the flashlight to someone who "needed" it.
this whole comment was a wild ride
I never thought about keeping pills in fleshlights...pretty clever. Hardly anyone would go looking there
I knew a guy years back who hid cocaine inside the Mont blanc pen he used everyday.
When your mom is also your dealer...
OR He invested in Bitcoin and made some unfortunate decisions
At least the car still has value.
if he has a 2 million dollar car and his mom lives there he has nothing figured out.
Maybe it’s a wonderful neighborhood and momma doesn’t want to leave all her friends. Son/daughter swings by to make plans to upgrade the whole neighborhood. In the evening everyone will be gathered for bbq to discuss the steps for the future of the trailer park.
I really like your thinking. It’s not even overly saccharine style wholesome, I could see this happening irl. Thanks for the nice feelings.
This is so specific there's no way that's what's going on, but it's so wholesome I chose to believe it anyway.
Some old people just don’t want to move away from old friends. I am from China. Many self made rich guys came from vey poor family in remote areas. When they made it and bought big houses in big cities like Shanghai, they aways wanted to move their parents to cities. Most of the parents simply couldn’t adapt to new neighborhoods and eventually went back. I do think a well off child doesn’t really need to give parents tones of money or buy fancy houses but do need to make them live comfortably.
We rent a 1.5-7 million dollar home in San Jose. 4300 a month. It’s gorgeous and has 5 bedrooms, 4 of which have walk-in closets. My master suite has two walk in closets...
We drop rent checks off at the owner’s residence... in a trailer park.
Some people like where they live. It isn’t necessarily an indicator of their success.
A trailer is small. A trailer can be reasonably comfortable. A trailer is easily cared for by one person. A trailer park also has few expectations, unlike the neighbors in fancy house land.
NEVER underestimate the freedom lack of expectations provides. It rules.
A trailer can be set upon wheels, and transported when one loses interest in his present environs.
Also, you can bug the fuck out when hurricanes pay a visit.
1.5-7 million dollar home
That is one volatile market
I would guess they meant 1.5-1.7 million.
my yearly rent is 100 less.
i mean I only get 1 room and not a mansion somewhere as nice as san jose. but the thought alone of paying your rent made it hard for me to breathe, that kind of outlay would just crush me.
Anyone with that level of wealth gets shit delivered by the case.
This dude getting some cheap ass OR visiting an old relative.
You look at that and see wealth, I look at that and think someone’s in a lot of debt.
If it was a Lambo? Sure. But a Veyron is an entirely different tier of expensive. It’s more like owning a private jet that happens to have 21” wheels.
Even beat to shit used (by Veyron standards) you’re probably looking at $800,000. Just insurance is a huge barrier to ownership.
Edit: “ not 0
Or it’s the oxy inventor stopping by to give thanks to their best customer
Worst pyramid scheme ever. "You keep selling that oxy and (points outside) one day you could have your very own Bugatti"
Bro, that's just an entrance to a cave. Biiiig cave.
You don't park to buy oxys. He's tappin' some trailer trash.
You do when the dealer is the homie. Or apparently with these comments, your mother...?
Or a russian mobster visiting his baba
San Jose, CA. That mobile home was $5M.
parking spot 500k
front bush all the dogs pee on 50k
People thinking you’re a junkie despite spending millions on maintaining your lifestyle?
all your neighbors are multi-millionaires too. only ones who are actual dealers are drug kingpins.
Safest neighbourhood around.
As a San Jose resident I can confirm. Currently living in a closet where the rent is 2000/mo
I live in san jose, can confirm
I live in san jose and am currently looking for a new place to rent.. Can 100% confirm
I visited San Jose a year or so ago. In an uber ask the driver what there is to do in San Jose.
"You could visit San Francisco."
The only thing she could think to do... was to leave. I'm not sure I can think of anything else I saw to do.
Watch the Sharks if you like hockey.
I've been to San Jose and I actually love parts of it a lot. It's got good food, good drink, decent dancing. And a couple of cool museums. And good shows.
And it doesn't have the existential doom of SF. Nor does it have rents as crazy as SF.
Source: Used to live in SF
Difference between and sf rent and San Jose rent is like $500
San Jose is suburbia. It's a nice place to live - wide, clean streets with good quality houses but it's not an exciting bustling place to live compared to SF or Manhattan. It could be though, if the local government changed zoning rules to allow for higher density. There's enough wealth (and tax base) in the area to support a glittering metropolis.
How bad are we talking?
Well, at least that's some sick ROI.
Only if you sell it and move somewhere else entirely. The only people making real money are those with multiple properties.
Hah, my uncle lives in a mobile home like this in San Jose. He owns several homes in the bay and is doing quite well actually.
A friend purchased a new prefab in a nice community in SJ last year for about $340k. Interior is massive for what you expect. Yeah rent space and all that but you can do ok if only for the stigma of living in a trailer park.
Must be Trevor’s place
ROOOOOONNNN. WHERE THE FUCK ARE MY KEYS!
I DON’T CARE THAT YOUR WIFE LEFT YOU, FIND ME MY GOD DAMN KEYS
BRING ME MY COFFEE OR ILL CUT YOUR FUCKING ARM OFF
Now go. I need to meditate. Or masturbate. Or both.
All these GTA comments, here I was thinking Trailer Park Boys...
“16 years of positive thinking and education have manifested themselves into a Bugatti Veyron. Boo-gah-tiiiiiii.”
It's got too many doors to be the shitmobile.
Likely a replica built on a cheaper car frame.
I'd be lying if I didn't admit that's probably the best replica (in terms of the exterior) I've ever seen.
Cheap ignition key gives it away.
I'm surprised they didn't update that, even just a simple push button start without a security component would have sold it. It seems like they did everything else in the car. Very impressive still.
Not really. Not with this car at least. The Bugatti Veyron key is the exact same one they give you with a VW Jetta/Passat/GTI etc.
I took my passat alltrack key for a swim in the ocean a year ago and then I learnt that the circuitry is pretty impenetrable! It's a good keyfob.
Meanwhile my ex threw my Dodge keys in a river and in the 3 seconds before I pulled them out the lock and unlock buttons switched places.
Y’all got pranked by a fish yo
Yea, I once went swimming with the keyfob in my swim truck pocket. When I went back to the car I thought I'd have to call AAA but it still worked!
That's not too horrible
Especially considering that it's... finished. Completely. Even the interior.
Rather impressive all things considered.
Isn't the replica still expensive and out of the price range of most mobile home dwellers?
That's how he ended up in the mobile home.
Something tells me these replicas are a rich man's sport.
Rich Guy 1: Hey. What do you want to bet I can turn a Dodge Neon into a Ferrari Spider?
Rich Guy 2: That's nothing. Check out my Ford Mercury turned into a Bugatti.
It's like that guy who turned a Sega Master System into a steam punk phonograph.
Naw, not necessarily. Kit cars were pretty big in Socal and I knew people that would work on them for years. They weren't rich, they were a side project. Many of them looked horrible on the inside and we can't see the inside from this shot. You're really just talking about dropping a fiberglass frame on a cheap car. And often you can get a good deal on a kit body from someone else that never actually saw their kit car vision to completion. A $20K kit, once you lost all the hardware and fucked some parts up, and you're frustrated as all hell and realized you wasted 3 years of your life, well, you're willing to part with that body for a case of beer.
I turned my Lada into a Koenigsegg!
Maybe it was the first purchase after a lottery win.
So nothing figured out then?
Depends how big the lottery win was
I'd be buying a house before a Bugatti if I won the lottery. I mean granted the Bugatti dealership would be my 2nd stop, but still.
When I bought a house it took me 2 months before I could actuslly move in though, you can drive the car the same day
Your drive up in a Bugatti, that agent is going to work their ass off. Think about it.
I thought the same
It very well could be a friend who got rich. I grew up on the edge of suburbia middle-class and some of my friends were poor. Then in my early 20 I started dating a billionaire for a few years. I didn't have anything as nice as this, but my Jaguar looked out of place at some friend's houses.
Edit: I really hope most of these responses are jokes.
Like when Eminem is in town for his class reunion?
Where did you find this billionaire? Asking for a friend.......of a friends cousins ex sister-in-law.
Damn think you could give me some hints on how you did it? I'm trying to slide in Mackenzie's Dms and give her all the love and attention she needs in this trying time
I didn't know he had money until we were together for 2 months. Sorry. I don't know how to gold-dig properly.
How did you find out and what was your reaction?
He told me and flew me to what became our apartment the next day- for the weekend so I could work on Monday. I was pretty stunned and felt inadequate. I was super awkward around his friends and family when we went out to eat that night and I could barely talk. I didn't like it. Then over the next few days I felt lied to. That lasted a few weeks until I started to see why he did it that way.
That lasted a few weeks until I started to see why he did it that way.
Because if someone didn't actually like him and they knew, more people than you'd think, would pretend otherwise. I had to see it to believe it and I saw it. Over and over and over and over again. Almost as bad as a celebrity.
Can confirm. My aunt married her husband around 15 years ago now, who owns a company thats been in the forbes top US 100. He and his brother run the company and are billionaires, and both of them are royal jackasses most of the time. Everyone knows it, and even when theyre directly rude or downright mean to someone no one will stand up and say something. Everyone is too afraid of offending them, most likely because they dont want to ruin any future opportunities/ benefits that my uncle could make happen. He used to black out drunk and get extremely mean as well, which was the only time people felt they could stand up to him as he normally had no memory of it the next day.
Its not real respect theyre shown most of the time, its fear of what he could do, or fear of what people could miss out on by hurting their relationship with my uncle. Just having money and connections is enough for people to behave around you in a completely different manner than their usual self.
Maybe he actually replied to the rich Nigerian guy's email. Joke's on yall
I have so many regrets now
Once found myself passing through a not particularly nice trailer park in Florida where literally every car was at minimum a new Mercedes. My friends and I figured everyone there was a drug dealer, but hey who knows.
Its their "winter house ". I'm one of the very rare Florida natives and promise you, natives aren't that fucking retarded.
Is the winter house bit a tax thing? One of my college buddies in banking says he knew a guy who tried buying a home in Puerto Rico to dodge income tax, but found out you have to live there 51% of the year. So then he tried flying in and chartering a boat back to NY, just saying he telecommuted and used his flight manifests as proof.
As you can imagine, the IRS isn’t looking quite as hard at regular guys who may stretch a bit on what qualifies as a home office as they are people who make a million year and suddenly move to Puerto Rico while everything else indicates Manhattan.
We started wondering about some of the specifics though, like can you just move around a lot as long as PR is your primary residence and you spend more time there than anywhere else?
it's the 51% deal. I moved from California to Oregon at a point and one of my buddies is an attorney in Vancouver Washington, just across the river from Portland. I asked him about this since Washington state has no state income tax (Oregon does) and my next door neighbors had Washington plates and home all the time. He said a local attorney had just been busted on this, trying to say he lived in Washington and worked in Portland. They went into phone records and more to ascertain where he spent more time. Word was it was to make an example. IDK. But my neighbors turned out to have a business based in Washington and the husband spent more than 51% of the time there so they got away with it. I have other friends who did the Puerto Rico tax deal. The ones without kids loved it. The others with kids didn't last there and settled in Florida.
There is a beach front mobile home community on A1A (think million dollar estates, movie stars, professional sports stars, presidents (mar a lago is on A1A) etc.). Sometimes what you see is the last hold outs to generational development.
In England I remember gypsy caravans would make the news. Loads of gypsies would travel through the country and illegally set up on private paddocks and stuff. But the caravans were made up of bmws and luxury trailers.
We have those in the US, too. One of them is disguised as a city called Glendale in California.
That's what happens when you don't pay a resident tax, or housing. Your car and caravan are your house, so you can spend a bit more on your car than the average Joe with similar living wages.
He's just trying to get rid of his 5 star wanted level.
You can sleep in a car but you can't drive a house
Florida. There's no doubt about it.
As a native Floridan, confirmed. It's their "winter house "
Native Floridian as well and this just doesn’t make sense. Snowbirds don’t live in run down houses, especially if their whipping one of the most expensive cars on the planet. If they have a Mercedes or a Lexus it would be understandable, but not a fucking buggati. I legit have no idea what’s going on here.
I immediately thought Florida because I once visited great grandparents and their home looks exactly like this.
While traveling and passing through San Jose a few years ago, we stayed in an RV/Mobile home park. Many full time residents. Single wide, or RV park model trailers with BMWs, Audis, parked out front of said homes. Come Monday morning, all the residents come out of their mobile homes, dressed in suits, slacks, etc etc, get in their expensive cars and head to work.
It's expensive as fuck to just RENT in San Jose and your car is your status symbol, don'tcha know...
Plenty of people I know have those
The trailers not the car
Or maybe it's a kit car..
Kit car, fake image, or insurance settlement. My money is on fake image. The car is too wide for the driveway front driver side wheel is half way off the concrete.
This is what you call a trap house kids.
I believe this was proven to be a kit car.
He figured out drug sales.
Maybe the owner is still in the trunk
So he picked up a chick at a club and went to her place... mystery solved yw.
Holy fuck Julian is doing pretty good for himself
