I appreciate all of the positive words from everyone. I truly hope I can convince my wife to let me get a cheaper car to haul the kids around in, but I'm fighting an uphill battle with her. The last thing I want to do is sell my mustang.

Put it to her like that brother. Tell her it's the last thing u wanna do. Sometimes we give in. Sometimes we fight.

I'd really fight for my car. Myself, it'd be one situation where I'd put my foot down.

Your car will only raise in value especially if it becomes a weekend warrior. I hope you can use that as an argument and convince her to get a secondary vehicle. Is the mustang the only car between both of you? Also your car with its low mileage and special edition is worth in my area (Miami) probably is start at 14500. I see regular GTs with 45k selling for 12 so yours worth way more because of its mileage. This was just where I would start. Probably 15500 just to haggle. Again this is just my local!

Contrary to popular beliefs, if you take care of them they won't let you down and they get 30+ mpg. My wife's currently has 120k and I've had quite a few others over 100k with no other problems than breaks. And a cam pos sensor (10 min fix). A cheap neon se will run you about 2-3000 and is safe.

Well, it looks like I'm going to have to upgrade to a slightly larger car in about 9 months. I'm not going to rush in to a new purchase or to sell my Bullitt, but if the right offer comes my way I will have to let her go The family is growing by one.

I'll take it! I'd love to have another Bullitt

I was able to fudge my way with "mustang is a viable backup family car", albeit barely. Drives like a pregnant yak with 3 other ppl, but doggone it it's 'viable' lol

Car feelings aside, congrats on the new addition! May he/she be healthy, happy, and loved.

When my wife got pregnizzle I just got a beater Taurus. Congrats on the kid and the only thing I can say is that the car will sit a LOT when that kid is first born. You won't have much if any time to work on it so don't plan on any mods even if you have the funds. My Cobra became my getaway to just zone out and enjoy the ride when my girl was very little. Don't take that like I hate my family and had to get out, sometimes you just need a break lol.

I would NOT sell that Bullitt, not with those miles. If she isn't aware that you have a collector car that is only going to go UP in value (espeically being one that isn't green too) you need to get that through her head. In 10 years if you can keep the miles to 3k or less per year that car should be worth a good deal more than it is now. Hell I'm even thinking of getting a collector New Edge in the near future for this very reason, the window is closing to get a nice one. Keep yours.

I forgot to get a pic of the New Edge with TWO carseats in the back of it at work. 1 because I thought it would be good to post here, 2 because the moron didn't have the upper latch attached to the carseats. Any accident he's in they're going to go flying forwards and slam the kids' heads into the back of the front seats...

With that said it can be done just fine. Kids fit in these cars, hell the only reason I left the back seat in mine is so my little girl can go for rides. Just gotta find a booster that is old school enough to work without the LATCH system or swap my seat cushions onto an 02+ back seat frame...

Thank you! We are real excited to have our second child. But we really need a car that is going to give us more room and getting a second car isn't financially viable right now. I hate to do it, because I love my car. I've owned it since 2007, and I have slowly transformed it into something close to my dream Bullitt. I wish I had a rich relative that could buy it and hold it for me till I could buy it back

Thanks, I know I will probably never come across a nicer low mileage Bullitt if I do sell it, but we really need a larger car for our growing family. I hope to get into another mustang down the road. I know I'm going to be one of those guys that talks about that one car that he wished he didn't sell, my Bullitt will be that car

Hell if you do sell and you are near NJ let me know. I might be in the market for a mint new edge soon and it'd have to be a numbered car.

It's been great with my daughter so far, but a car seat won't fit behind me without me driving with my knees in my chest. As it is, you have to be pretty short to sit shotgun with my daughter behind the passenger seat.

An EVO is in the running, I have quite a few cars in mind, but I've got some time to find something perfect.

Thanks Slow4V, I feel the same way. Family first, I can always get another mustang. My Bullitt will be hard to let go of though.

Get a new explorer base model have 6 years to pay it off. I work at a dealership and honestly if I needed a family car I wouldnt hesitate on a new explorer.. old ones are heeps. I mean you'd have 6 years to pay it off and have 9 months to save up and be tight about it.

If you can get 0% financing then new at 5-6 years is the way to go. I say get a SHO Taurus. Twin turbo, awd full size (unlike cramming the kids into an EVO) and loaded. Very HAWT.

Also... damn Cali is too far.

I would prefer a sporty wagon over an SUV. I still plan to replace the Bullitt with something fast, just with more room. I have been pricing out SHO's, but I'm leaning towards a high performance wagon like an Audi S6, V8 and AWD along with the utility of being a wagon. But I'm still researching all options, I don't want to rush into this.

I vote Evo 8/9. Those cars are just plain sexy and make decent power with a tune (relatively) my buddy has pulled a few GTOs with his.

I also needed a 4-door, RELIABLE car after we had my son. I, like you, wanted a fast and fun car to drive. I always liked WRXs and especially in 2011 when they went to their "wide body" STI look. Not only did they look awesome, but they are fast. Faster than I thought they would be. I am almost positive that my WRX would beat my fully bolted GT with 4.10s. It has plenty of room, fun to drive, and AWD for the PA winters (goes like hell in the snow once you get decent tires). All of that for easily under $30k.

EVOs are sweet especially if you want to make alot of power with them. But, if you want something less harsh for every day driving with a baby, I would say WRX. But I could be biased.

Although it may be to late now, if you dodge the bullet, go to the vet and get neutered. After all, it's a Bullit.

I'm probably a little biased too, I like the looks of a WRX/STI just not the interiors and general softness of them. But I also don't have any kids to worry about or anything like that so I can deal with the harshness

I say keep it and get a mid 2000s civic or something. Something good with gas, reliable, roomy and cheap... You do not want to get rid of that Bullitt.

I got a 2003 Mazda 6 for free from my Parents. 140k miles on it but runs like a top, has plenty of room, leather, sunroof etc... Its KBB is $2500 in the shape its in so maybe see if a relative is selling a known history beater?

The only problem buying a beater is: you don't want the car to break while carting around a newborn. I recently bought a 01 Corolla to drive to work everyday since I drive 55 miles one way to work. The car gets 35-40 mpg all day. Thats right, i bought a WRX to DD in place of my Stang, then bought the Corolla to DD in place of mu WRX haha so I now have 3 cars. Also, my sister-in-law owned it for 8 years and had no major issues and I only paid $1500 for it. Having said that, the car left me sit about a month ago. Coming home from work, a bearing in the trans decided to disintegrate. So there I sat in the heat for 2 hours until my buddy picked me up in his rollback. Now, if i had my son with me or worse, a newborn, i would have been more irritated. Luckily I found a trans a week later for $400 and my dad and I put it in the following weekend. It only took 4 hrs from start to finish. The car runs like a champ now. Moral of my crappy story, beware of buying a beater with a young child and be prepared to fix it if it breaks.

Ha, that's a cute little man there. I've got a 4 yr old little girl and probably will not have any more kids so no son for me... eh...

I drove a 2000 SVTC as a fun beater/child carrier for awhile and now I drive a very high mileage Mazda 6 as a beater. IMO a beater should be a car you drive in place of driving something nicer and keep said something nicer in reserve so you aren't car-less.

With that said I have 5 cars currently. The SVTC which is down for maintenance, that Mazda, my wifes CR-V, the 98 GT and a 2003 Expedition that we drive to dog shows with our Wolfhound and Ibizan Hound. Does that qualify me for redneck status? None of the cars are hidden by 4' tall grass or anything... lol.

Anyway on a serious note, I might be in the same boat here in soon. I just got my MRI results for me left knee today and the cartilage damage is worse in 2 yrs time. So I might have to bail on stick shifts altogether and get rid of my 98... Which sucks because the car I REALLY want to get back into is another low mileage clean 94/95 Cobra and those are all 5 spds. Or I'll just get an 04 Mach auto and be done with it. Blah...

For the OP selling the Bullitt I still say get a SHO.
