Selling the car

Rate this Entry
So I have been kicking around the idea of selling my Talon and getting into something else. So, yes, in a way I have been thinking about becoming a sell out. I have not had a tag on the car in a long, long time and I drive it less and less (for maintenance purposes.) I do not really have enough invested in the car to have to part it out. I could sell it as is for a decent amount of money and it would be a great platform for someone to start from. It is, after all, a rare 1992 6/4 combo.

So I threw this idea at the wife. She actually told me not to sell it. She knows how much I love the car. I just think I could love something else just as much. Something I could get some use from. I think maybe if I put a tag back on the car, my thoughts might change, but I am not sure.

I am also considering selling off my Corvette instead. This would allow me to pay off a debt that I really want gone and the remainder of the money could be put into the Talon to make it road safe again. I have been driving the Corvette to work and stuff to save on the fuel of driving the truck. This is where the Talon would step in.

If I could sell the Corvette for the $12K it is worth, I would end up with about $2100 to play with. If I was going to "invest" this money in the Talon, I would put it toward the suspension, brakes (which I have 99% of, just need stainless lines for the rear,) air conditioning, and transmission work.

I could also take that $2100 and put it toward some other form of transportation. I need something cheap to drive me to work and it has to have A/C. The Corvette's does not work and I hate driving it in the heat.

So that is my situation for now. Just wanted to blog it.

    I was gonna say the same...Can't be the admin/president of a DSM club without having a DSM. Plus like you said, that money will help you get rid of a debt/some debts and still have money to get the DSM running and some tags. If you sell the DSM, you know deep down you would eventually get another one...LOL
