Learned a long time ago, "Never say never"!! If the right car comes along things happen. Traded in my 5th on the Corvette Vert 4LT below, no regrets. I hope to add the 5th vert when it comes along!

The white 2SS/RS I'll have forever. Sentimental reasons or midlife crisis. Whatever. Just love that car and only have 2200 miles. My favorite garage queen!!

You get severely punished in this liberal bastion for buying a new car. I am fed up with getting my f$%#ing pocket picked. If you buy new tires for your SS in Taxachusetts, you will pay $113.00 in sales tax. We can get away with buying our tires in New Hampshire, but not our cars.
Joy!! Things I get to look forward to in the next few weeks when I buy my SS. Ugh I live here why?

Why are so many waiting until it's paid off to mod it? I understand if it's due to lack of funds because you have a car payment, but I wondered if there were other reasons.

I got mine in January. I have been modding it quite a bit. I think it will likely be sold at my estate sale.

My 11 year-old son has already put in a claim for mine, (I've had it less than a week). I'm not sure what the future holds but I have my doubts that V8 engines will still be in existance five years from now. More than likely, down the road, the Government will begin taxing the crap out of anyone that still owns a V8.

SUPRBAD will be given to my Daughter when she starts driving in 2015.

Then, I get a Corvette.

I'll keep mine forever. It's the first and prob only brand new car I've ever bought. It just isn't smart to buy a new car just to trade or sell at huge loss 4 or 5 years later.

My first Camaro was a '69 that I sold a few years back. Regretted it ever since. This one will go to my son in 2014 when he turns 16. At that time I will buy a convertible.(if not before)

The only reasons I would EVER sell my car:

financial hardship
serious medical situation

Short of that, I will never sell this car. I will be driving it when I'm way too old to be driving.

A lot of that reason is typically, the warranty is over by then. So, most mods are all Pay to Play - it's out of your wallet at that point - unless you got an extended warranty!

No, are you happy paying .5% more than us? Do you have the excise tax too? Keep feeding the loafers and I'll keep my Camaro.

Our excise tax for our SS's this year was $680.00. There were a lot of angry Bay Staters on this site last February.

I believe we do have an excise tax, or they will be putting it on us soon. And I'd pay 10% sales tax to buy my camaro (wouldn't if it was say a dvd though). I've been paying this 7% sales tax since as far back as I can remember (I'm 24) so paying it is no big whoop to me (though obviously I would like to pay 0% but that ain't going to happen). I know you guys just got the 6.5% so you might still hate paying it. State government has got to run somehow.

I just started thinking about trading mine for another Challenger. I'm disappointed by the Camaro gas mileage.

My friend, I have been paying it since it became law here in 1963. Yes I am that old. The state will always spend more than they take in. If they don't, the next year the budgets get cut. When I do not have enough money to run my household, I can not go to my employer and demand more money like the state can. I must use a novel approach called reduced spending. Are you a welfare recipient? I am not. With the $2,000.00 that the state took for sales tax on my SS, I could have bought some pretty neat options for my car. I am just the guy that works for the money, thats all. So you think that you should just absorb all of that highway robbery? I wish that you could move here and pay my taxes for me.

No I'm not on welfare, I actually have a paying job. I actually pay taxes in two place, though mostly pay in Conn (I work in Conn and live in RI). Technically the state can't spend more than it takes in since its a federal law that no state can be in the red. That is why so many states are having problems because the money they are taking in isn't like it was 10 years ago and therefore they have to cut state spending in order to balance the budget. Only the federal government can spend more than it takes in.

As for paying your taxes and mine, nah I'm all set with paying Conn taxes, and RI income taxes (not that much since its only on my bank accounts).

BTW I bought my Camaro in Mass, but I still had to pay the sales tax, forgot what that came up to so your not the only one.

Edit: Anyways clearly we are off topic, so I'll leave the conversation if you want for one more time in your court, but from here on out I'll try to be more on topic since this isn't the place to debate this.
