Seems to be SOP for everyone that sells their cars. The sell it, then talk about how much they miss it later...and some even end up wanting to buy it back and complain that the person they sold it to will sell it back for the same price he bought it for (read a thread about that today...found it hilarious)

This feeling is the #1 reason why mine will not be sold. The only way I will get rid of the car is if Ford denies my lease refi next week (which is something they have done to me in the past...****ers)...at which time I have no intensions of returning the car without a fight.

Re: My Former Ride

wow you leased your car I could never do that lol unless it was something I didnt plan to do anything to and wanted to boot after 3 years... what really sucks is if they sell it back to you for market value... which wont be much less than what they ran new back in 03 (with good deals of course)

With the topic: why did you sell it? If I had been looking when you were selling I probalby would be driving it right now

haha i read that thread too.

though if the guy i bought the cobra from wanted it back, id tell him 25k. just cause he was dumb enough to lowball himself doesnt mean im that dumb, i know what the car is worth and kbb value on it.

i think if you sell something fast and then go to something slow, you WILL regret it.

i regretted my switch from the GST to the GT, but im happy again now with the Cobra

I had to lease it to get into it. I had an 01 Explorer and a newly purchased home loan only 3 months old at the time...and the only way ford would give it to me was to lease it to me. I said "whatever, just give me the keys". The baloon payment at the end is only $16k and change...with a trade in book of roughly $24k the last I checked I think...I don't see the issue...specially since I haven't been late in the 3 years...

but, that is neither here nor there....

On topic, I just can't see myself giving the car up willingly like a lot have done already. I can see my grand kids getting this car 50 years from now. lol

Had other plans and the budget didnt work unless the Cobra pymt disappeared. But with work the way it is now....I have started the shopping process again

What pisses me off is if I had waited 2 months, I would have never sold it to start with.
