Even though there was a movie made about his life and at least some of your friends are no doubt hooked on his invention you may still not know the name Mark Zuckerberg. Let’s make it clear for you, Mr. Zuckerberg is barely 30 years old, he founded Facebook and is worth an estimated 6.4 million dollars depending on how his stock is doing. But despite all of this success we were surprised to learn that this very wealthy young man is still oddly quite frugal when it comes to his spending. At the very least, we don’t see any Bugatti purchases in his future.
So how do we know that Mark Zuckerberg might still have some of his fortune left after Facebook becomes a “retro” function of human existence? No, we haven’t gotten a look at his personal finances or procured a crystal ball but rather we just took a long hard look at the driveway outside his somewhat humble Palo Alto, CA home. Now, no one might have ever looked at Matt’s house if he wasn’t so cheap that he insisted on getting married to his longtime girlfriend in his backyard just to save some money. Let’s hope that he at least sprung for a professional florist and didn’t make his girlfriend make her own bouquet.
Thanks to media attention surrounding the Facebook founder’s nuptials, many in the media noticed that this young couple only owns two vehicles and they are rather more sensible than you might expect. Now, these two vehicles would make excellent buys for any newly married young couple but with 6 billion in the bank you have to be quite frugal to still drive your current generation Honda Fit and last generation Acura TSX. Well, that is a rousing endorsement for Honda we suppose.
Now, to our best way of thinking both the Fit and TSX might seem hard to let go of even as a billionaire when they are equipped with their excellent manual transmissions. They offer up a zesty driving experience that we just so happen to love. Is Mr. Zuckerberg the same way or is he just too cheap to buy a nicer car? Let’s just hope that Matt isn’t too rich now to know how to use a clutch.
