there is a Rumor going around......

Post by Vandy9303 on 4/30/2012, 7:40 pm

that my shelby may be going up for sale soon, so i come to you guys for advice. should i keep her or let her go.

im having a hard time justifying having a car with that kind of payment/insurance bill that sits in the garage and we can not enjoy as a family. the wife and i are both wanting a travel trailer, and i dont think the hummer will do too well with it behind her.

she doesnt want me to sell but sees where i am coming from. as it is my k5 is for sale, the GTP is all but sold. my theory is sell the shelby pick up and early 2000s f250/350 7.3l that i can have paid off in a year or 2, then look into a replacement shelby, maybe a 13+. my fear is shes already talking about another kid. if that happens i doubt ill have the cash to drop down on another one. so should i keep what i have, work even more, drop a CHIT ton of money on her and pay her off in the next maybe 3 years, or cut my losses buy a big oil burning pig and hope i can pick on up on the back side.


problem is also with this is we REALLY enjoy taking her on trips, but again with the kid im not sure how often this is going to happen.


let the advice,input and flaming begin.


hey maybe i can just get a SGT

With what I'm looking at I could prob have it paid off in a year and a half. And could buy a mach or new edge cobra and still be a little less than what I owe now. That is a big push to keep the car. We love taking trips in it


And that's another thing. I was pushing for the car pre kid because I know how it goes once you have one.


Oh well time will tell

Keep it until your dead. You'll wind up living in a van by the beach with a pistol in your mouth every night wishing you had the guts to pull the trigger and end your miserable life since you no longer have a gt500. :)

Jus sayin. Lol

Oh I'm sure. I'm fighting back and forth on it. I love the car but I feel guilty about keeping it. I just don't want to end up like one of those guys driving a mini van talking about xxxxxx car I use to drive. Idk I've got a couple trucks lined up that I could get and keep the car. Atleast that way we could still do the family thing and keep the shelby

Sell the hummer and make her drive the truck?? Plus the diesel properly equipped will get much better mileage than the hummer.

Better yet go find an excursion with the power stroke, best of both worlds however decent one of those with under 100k mileage still pulls low 20's at auction.


Moral of the story here is don't sell the gt500

yep sell the hummer (vehicle type not mouth type) and have her drive the truck. i'm guessing you get what maybe 15mpg in the hummer. a few key mods and you'll get better than that in a crewcab f250 w/ the diesel

Look I got rid of my 08' Roush because it wasn't practical. Point is, if you have a family it will never be practical but that is what is fun about it. As soon as I could I got into another Roush and now I have my 2012. I am not letting it go for anything. As soon as you sell it you will be looking for something new. Just keep it.

hummer will hopefully be replaced by a 7.3L EX regaurdless.

i dont disagree that getting rid of the 500 would be a mistake. luckily the guy from work met me at the bank yesterday and wrote me a check for the K5. i was sad to see her go but with the money i got for it, i have found a 4 door f350 7.3L up in B.A. that ill be picking up this weekend if it doesnt sell between now and then (lets hope it doesnt). so that will take care of my issue for now. so the 500 will be staying where she is, and a new big ugly will be parked in the street to piss off the old hag across from me
