sell my 2012 GT and just keep my 1979 notch big block im building? or just keep both?

Like the title says Ive almost had my 2012 GT for 2 years now. It has 7800 miles on it and is always garaged and not driven in rain (unless i got caught in it). Its also parked thru winter months... I sold the race stars the stupid car wash in town sprayed acid on them so now it has the stock wheels on it.. resonators deleted and GT 500 axle back.. No other mods never tuned.. Ive always been into foxbody notchbacks and im in the middle of building my 79 full street strip with a big block.... I love this 12Gt but rarely use it between my other cars and once my 79 is done im sure ill drive it even less. My thought is sell it and just keep the 79 or just hold on to both and enjoy them...
Any thoughts?????

I love my 83, but if one had to go, it wouldn't be my 12. On the other hand, I don't have a big block. Unless your limited on space, I'd keep both.

NO i am keeping the 79 I miss the sound of a radical idle and the deep pounding in your chest from a big block and lets face it its 34 years old and clean foxs are getting hard to find! the new mustang with the 5.0 are all over the place and anyone can buy one... I like the 69-70 Mach 1's but i dont desire to own one..

I am not totally limited to space i have 5 garages and if I want the 79 indoors to work on it then another car has to go outside.... my only option would be to build another garage bay...

I would sell the 12. It's not like it's a collectable or anything. I drive my 11 less than your 12. Bought it brand new in Oct 2010 and it has under 7k. I think of selling mine sometimes also. Sounds like you are bored with it,amirite?

Yes in a way im bored of it! The main reason I bought it cause 2 years ago i didnt have much free time to build another mustang. So my wife convinced me into buying a new one and just enjoy it... I figured yea Ill do that plus the new 5.0 is really nice and pulls good. But im more of a old school person. When im at a show and a car rolls by sort of quiet or a slight whinning sound from a super charger or turbo I know there making good power but its not me... When a car rolls up and you hear it rummbling from around the corner and its barely ideling at like 1300 rpm and you feel the pounding in your chest... Thats what i go for...

Unless you bought the 12GT outright, why pay a note for something you barely even want to drive. Sounds to me you have more fun building your Foxbody than driving your 12GT. I say dump the 12GT and use the money for something else, like your restoration project. How about some progress pics of your FoxBody, so we can enjoy the journey with you

Yes I cant justify making the monthly payment on it when i barely drive it... The saved money would definately help out on the 79 project.

sounds like your minds made up. sell the 5.0 and fix the 79 up exactly how you want.
