I must be sick.. I uttered the word SELL!
#1
I'm really considering a newer Mustang. I told the wife this and she actually agreed. Looks like her 73 might be up for sale. Of course this conversation was after a few beers this weekend. We'll see what happens this spring when it comes out of storage.

I won't tell you what to do but I have a feeling you might regret it after. Then again I just got mine 2 years ago after 36 years of waiting. And I do want other cars but I think I will add to the collection instead. I doubt I will ever sell this car.

Sorry, but I gotta hang with my esteemed colleagues here - keep it. The 'new' cars are nice enough, but they lack character - not to mention they're too damn complicated to work on anymore.

Like Eric said, "I doubt I'll ever sell mine." I've been waiting almost 30 years to get mine as well. Even though it came "some assembly required - battery not included," and is still more of a pile than an actual car, I dumped my cool little '95 Honda Civic hatchback soon after because it just isn't as sexy as a classic Mustang - running or not. Once I got the Rustang off the trailer, I looked over at my little Honda (that I resurrected from the dead a few years earlier) and decided it was time to go.

Ya know - if her car's in storage, then you might just leave it in storage and go get something newer anyway. Sounds like she's just wanting something newer and cool as a daily driver.

Good luck with your decision.

Eric

OMG! I'm gonna pretend like I never read this thread...



LOL! Seriously, it's your car but I hope you give it some serious thought before pulling the trigger...I've sold stuff before that I still regret!

I've gotta agree. I understand the comfort and drivability of a new one but try to keep yours. I'd sell the kids first. lol

Step away form the car,sir!!!! Don't do it !!
I had one of those cars that the minute I saw it leave I knew it was a mistake! That was in 1980 and I still think about it! Some cars just can not be replaced !!

Think LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG and carefully before you do it.
However, selling my Pro Street '64 GTO to buy my Mustang convertible was a VERY good decision. Big Grin

I own a brand new mustang and the '72.


The new car is nice, comfortable, gets good gas mileage, has A/C, heated seats, its real fast, and rides real smooth.

It also looks just like every other new mustang on the road,


Everytime I get gas in the '72 someone tells me how nice it is, or badass, or cool it is. EVERYTIME.


Keep the '73. Turn it into a daily driver, screw the storage.
