Owning a vehicle in Kenya and even any country means that the owner is rich or has alot of possesion. This is because a vehicle is something that is very expensive and a large percentage of people in the country do not own vehicles.
A good vehicle currently in Kenya is valued above one million kenyans shillings. Presidential vehicles and also famous rich politicians are always worth even above 5 million shillings.
A picture taken in 1967 surfaced online showing prices of vehicles at that year. The picture was taken infront of a motor yard selling vehicles listing the types of vehicles available by then.

This is because the kenyan economy was low compared to nowadays. This keeps increasing each and every year.
