Everyone will eventually go through a midlife crisis and everyone will have their own way of dealing with it. For a car enthusiast trying to reclaim their need for speed—cruising down streets with wind in their hair—then the obvious solution would be a high performance vehicle, obviously. As Porsches and Corvettes seem to be the typical choice for the macho man in the center of a midlife crisis, there are other vehicle options to satiate themselves.
Alternative vehicles for a midlife crisis can still include luxury cars that are still powerful enough that drive like the sports car of your dreams yet come at a price that won’t break the bank. Car like the Lotus Elise, BMW M5, and even a Mercedes E63 AMG Wagon are all good options for the man in crisis—these cars are just as practical as they are flashy.
Or rather than spend a large sum of money on a vehicle, opt for a vehicle that has a bit of nostalgia to them, maybe that’ll cure the crisis. Restoring a 1960’s Pickup could be just the pickup you need to get over this midlife hump. If you’re looking for a bit of everything than a Mustang from the early 70’s should hit the spot. Classic, yet powerful, older Mustangs only exemplifies that some things can still get better with age.
