I have a 1968 mustang fastback that my dad left to me before he died. I restored it to running condition and had the opportunity to enjoy it my senior year in high school. Ive been driving it for 3 years as my daily driver and I get many offers...and my friends always say that I shouldnt hold on to an old car like that , but i love it and its my first car....Is it weird that i wont sell it? The most ive been offered was $12,000

No its not. Your driving it and maintaining it your fine. If it sits outside and you let it rot to the ground and say one day Im going to fix it then yes.

Its your fathers old car. Im 28 now and I redid a 69 chevelle top to bottom when I was 16, took me 5 years. I had some hardship when I wanted to buy a house so I sold it. It was paid for and the memories I had with it could never be replaced. I choked up as I loaded it up getting trailered like 5 states away when the new owner picked it up.

Its not really the car. Its the memories that come or were made with the car is why people drive older stuff.

Now I have a couple cars that replaced that one, but its not the same as that one was. KEEP IT.

DON'T SELL IT! It's not like you're hoarding or something. If I had that mustang I be so happy, those are hard to get and you won't get it back, more so that it's from your Dad. Preserve it and love it, it is an extension of your Dad, and it is absolutely irreplaceable.

Unless you're really strapped for cash and you get a good offer, keep it. Sentiment means more than money; I know there are some things I'll do anything to keep.
