Thinking About Selling the Car
Well, I'm falling into the same trap I always do, but this time it's a little different. The car's great. It's fine. It works as perfectly as I could ever ask a 53yo car to. But I don't drive it enough. Part of the issue is that it's ridiculously hot here right now, which makes the car no fun to drive. It gets warm, but at least it seems that I've conquered the overheating issue. But it's just hot. Let's face it, I'm getting old, and vinyl seats and no AC isn't nearly as much fun as it sounded when I bought it. The problem I'm having is this; when I drive the car, I'm reminded of why I bought it. I REALLY love driving it "when the conditions are right". I don't like driving in the rain, or heat, or snow. I've found one of the most rust-free original Mustangs left, and I feel guilty doing anything that may cause rust. I know that's dumb, but it keeps me from enjoying the car. FWIW, this is my 43rd car, and my 20-something'th daily driver. (I've 42). I love cars, and always will, but I tend to get bored easily. So now I'm left with a decision. Do I hold onto it and put it away for a little bit to see if I fall in love with it again, or do I move it down the road? I kinda have the itch for a small boat right now. And I'd get a cheap pickup to tow it. My "daily" doesn't need to be super nice (or even reliable), because I have a company van, but it would be nice to have something a little more comfy (AC, cloth seats, etc), and that I don't care about parking it at the mall.
So, I'm not sure if I'm even asking for advice here. Eh, maybe I am. If nothing else, I hope I amused you with my nearly pointless ramblings.
