Another fun story Elon once told about this McLaren (that I might be misremembering slightly, so don't quote me): several weeks after this delivery he crashed it, walked away from the wreck, suddenly thought to himself "my god, I can just buy another one right now with no problem, holy shit I really AM unbelievably rich", and started laughing.

And a reminder that this was _before_ X.com became the enormously profitable Paypal, let alone all the money he's made from Tesla, SpaceX, SolarCity, etc. etc.
