might have to sell the stang

gas prices, repair costs, other economic binds...

all of which might force me to sell but i'd be parting out some of the things first. this is an idea of what i'll be selling off it IF IT HAPPENS

- 10th anniv wheels
- subs, box, amp (still trying to sell now....$500 anyone?)
- '99 cobra wheels (also still trying to sell)
- maybe the steeda shifter
- maybe the dvd head-unit
- the v6 bumper


if i got a replacement car it'd be like a integra gs-r or 240sx.

i don't wanna get rid of it, but at the same time it's causing me lots of grief with what it likes to do to me

That's unfortunate man but who knows, perhaps while not making payments you'll save up a down payment for something better.

I thought the same thing when I smashed mine, because my insurance doubled and I freaked out. But I love my car too much to get rid of it so I brought in more income to offset the bills, now I'm about to start modifying. As far as gas goes, here in Chicago gas is over $2.50/gal(premium) and V6's don't burn that much gas, so I manage to go for a week and I make circles around the city everyday. But sometimes, you gotta do what you gotta do. Hope everything works out for you

I pay almost that a month for my new Ram and it doesn't include insurance.

Add $217/mo for the stang and another $175/month for insurance for everything, damn cars cost money.
