Well there were few Asians in my community. I'd imagine in cities with a larger Asian population, based upon what I've read, that the social connections there tend to reinforce education as a priority. In rural life that was so, but heavily competed against by the preponderance of white Euro-Americans all around. Since the latter was diverse, then it tended to negate it. There's a strong sense of guilt and shame placed upon Asians by their parents for not improving their lot in the successive generation. I wouldn't consider that anything to do with a sports car, would you? It's not a luxury but a quintessential necessity.
