Possibly moving forward?

Alright guys, I'm about to be rid of most of my expenses since I will be joining the Coast Guard. I have a tax return of 3k depositing in my account soon, as well as a good bit of money saved up. I have a couple of ways I want to go with this since I'm young, single, and happy with life.

1) I could keep the stang and buy a Ninja 660R. I've always wanted a bike and finally will have more than enough money to buy an almost new one.

2) I keep the stang and just not do anything with money and just go into active duty and save up and either build the GT(the works) or sell it and buy a Cobra(under $20k).

3) I sell the stang and save up money for a bit and buy a Corvette Z06. I've been finding them around year 2005 with less than 75k miles going for roughly $19k. That's do-able and I love corvettes and have always wanted to transition into them eventually.


I'll have a 4-year enlistment, full time, with the Coast Guard. During which I'll simply have two bills: an $80 phone bill and a $121 student loans bill. So I'll be able to save up quite a lump, but if I buy the 'vette I'll get rid of the stang and not have a bike and I'll build the hell out of the LS6; I can get into the 600s easy N/A. If I buy the bike I'll garage the stang and build that up over time. If I don't do anything I'll save up money.. And probably buy a 'vette anyway.

I'm going in circles. D:

Option 2 all the way. And put the return to work on your loans.

And yeah, a Cobra does sound really nice. Seems like a good option.

I highly doubt if i got my hands on a nice cobra that I would trade it on a 'vette. If anything I'd put money aside and buy a 'vette as well.

Ultimately my short term goal is either to save altogether and keep my car, have a bike and my car(garage the car DD the bike), sell my car to get a cobra, or sell my car and get a 'vette.

From the sounds of it you may have to DD the Vette if you got one!.. I've driven Corvettes and they are AWSOME, fun, fast cars!.. But they have next to no room even compared to a Mustang!.. And climbing in and out of one becomes a pain in the A$$ after awhile!..
