My Stang is my toy, so I guess it replaces my 1976 offroad Jeep CJ-7. LOL at trading that in tho.:heha: I still have my 1998 Tacoma 4x4, can't see hauling home improvement supplies, SeaDoo gas, boat stuff, etc. in the Stang :shocked: . Although it would look pretty funny with an 18 foot pink pontoon boat behind it, huh?:eyebulge: And Hubby still has his 2005 VW Passat diesel. We still need to haul 4 passengers + luggage and get 41mpg sometimes too. :gringreen
But of the entire collection, guess which one I'm driving TODAY? :shiny:
Didn't trade in but kept the Hyundia sonata to drive back and forth to work since i drive 120 miles round trip. I could not see putting alot of miles on the stang like that.They would rack up real fast.
I had a 2000 PT Cruiser that was highly modified with over $16K of modifications. I had all sort of engine mods, including NOS that added up to about 260 HP. But alas, I got tired of no torque and four doors. The new Stang is not as pratical but way more fun to own.
Like a coupla others, I'm keeping my daily ride as a vehicle in reserve now. '95 Chevy C1500 1/2 ton shortbed, 4.3L V6 & 5-speed manual.....since it refuses to break down on me with 10 years and 150K miles miles of use & abuse. Resale value at this point is laughable......but way too great a vehicle to get rid of.
Plus I still need it to run over to my buddy's tomorrow night & borrow his ramps so I can do a little work under the 'Stang this weekend...
