You're right - we had sold our house - a pretty small semi in a working class village - and the money from practically any house in the UK gives you more of a head start over here. We'd budgeted for the Jazz, and my son paid for his own car (savings from grandparents over the years), but the MGF is our hobby.
I guess sometimes we forget how lucky we are....
