I traded a 2004 Ford F150 Lariat Supercrew. I did a bit of downsizing.

I traded in a 2000 BMW 3 series...Loved the car, but I make a good decision
Mine was an 01 Mustang GT vert
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:
2003 Nissan Murano. Good looking, horrible quality (fit-n-finish), worse gas mileage.

Though, I do miss the GPS
Still driving my 97 Chevy pickup 4 banger waiting for my 06 Mustang
dont laugh

mine was a 1989 ford escort pony...... yup the gt is a wee bit faster:laughlitt
my wife is driving my old '98 jeep cherokee. we got rid of her old civic
I was driving a 99 mustang. Was a great car!! I Love the new one and so does my wife!!:wavey
2002 Subaru Legacy GT... Great car, only complaint that it could not get out of its own way.
99 Ford Explorer Sport 4.0L V6 4x4 (for sale!!!). Great ride, but not fast enough for me.
2000 Yukon Denali … man, do I miss all that extra room.
I did a 180 - traded in my '97 Dodge Grand Caravan, a very reliable, but very uncool mode of transport. I could finally forget all about being practical!
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.
1970 Chev Impala 4bbl 350, edelbrock top end. Otherwise, original, 140k

she's now a lady of leisure.

it's cool when buying a sports car SAVES you gas $
Traded in my 1998 Jeep Wrangler. It has a 4" lift and 33" tires. BIG difference in cars.
I traded a 2001 Ford Explorer Sport Trac. It couldn't corner worth a crap :nogrinner

I am patiently waiting for an '06 Black GT. In the mean time, I am trying to sell my '03 Toyota Corolla S. Nice little car with decent gas mileage. Just not enough HP!!!:thumbsup

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... :)
