I once leased a car with an oppressive payment because I am an imbecile. I was stuck with it for two years. It was not a great, fun, or particularly-interesting car. I bought a shitty old F250 as a project to occupy my time and keep my mind off of the payment on wheels sitting in my driveway.

Bonus! The F250 was such a hideous shit-show that it made the expensive lease payments seem worth it!
