Question What sacrifice will you have to make for a 2010?

Well... Today I have decided...
I am going for it....after all..
I want one, and I will have one.
The first day I heard that the camaro would return, I knew that I would have to have one. I have had 7 first gens, and 2 second gens, and 3 third gens, and 1 fourth gen. I will have a 5th gen too, but this time, when it comes out.
I had at first decided against the idea 1 year ago when I had originally decided that the new camaro would be another gas gussler. With the soring prices of gas going up, I decided to go diesel. But WTF?? Diesel right now is $4 a gallon and climbing... Don't get me wrong.. I love my Jetta TDI special ed. It gets a boasting 42 mpg avge in the city alone and up to 500 miles a tank. I sold my 68 camaro due to the fact that it costs way too much to drive (partially due to the 462 CI big block) even to drive one day to work.
So, I gave it the boot, and bought me a new harley and paid cash for it.
But, my roots as you can see are truely camaro.
I had my first camaro and the age of 16. It was a RS. I paid $400 for it, and to this day, I can not get "camaro" out of my system. I have tried obviously with no success. How many FBODY's have I had? Let's count em.
13! Wow! 13...Thats if I did not miss one.
I want the 5th gen. I have just shy of 11 months starting to day to plan for one. I have made it a goal for sometime next year around this same time next year to be drivin one.
Sacrifices:
To acheive this goal, I will
have to
1. Sell my 06 Jetta TDI and get my equity out of it (about 4k.)
The key hear is finding the right time to sell it being diesel is going up, not down.
2. I may have to sell my 07 aniversary HD sporster I paid cash for (about 9k there)
With that being said, that would give me about 13k in collateral, give or take.
The key being knowing when and when not to sale.
3. I will have to buy something to drive until next year, which cuts into my collateral.

So, what sacrifice if any will you guys have to make.
I make 30k a year, so no, I am not rich by any token of the word.

Saving every penny I can, and getting a second job to buy mine. It will all be worth it though!

Exactly.
Maybe we need to start a forum for setting a goal to make this new car for everyone that plans on getting one a reality not just a dream...People can help keep others stay n check just to make the goal. I said a prayer this morning to the Rock of Ages...
I know he heard me, the rest is up to me to make it reality.
It is my #1 goal as of this writing to get this car.

I'm selling my Cutlass, and I'm waiting a couple years before buying too. I may even wait until 2012, as I think 6 years is at least how long you should usually keep a car. By 2012 I'll have my Cobalt for 6 years, and I'll be 25 so I'll get my insurance discount. I hope to make about $50,000 a year by then. Luckily the higher cost of living and the higher wages that go with it actually make cars relatively cheaper in Southern California. I lead a pretty simple life and don't buy much nor eat out much. I have no credit card debt and a couple thousand in savings. My only debt is a very manageable car loan and decent student loans. I think I'll be able to afford it without any other extraordinary measures.

Trading in my 07 Eclipse. After all the aftermarket accessories and extremely low mileage, I should get upwards of 15k. I got some inheritance money that I already have saved. I will probably put 10k in addition to the trade in. That way I can make small payments and still have some money in the bank. Unless I decide to pay it all off at once.

Pay cash for it if you can....you'll be much better off in the long run!

I haven't made a car payment in 10 years plus...all of our cars have been paid in cash! Its the best feeling in the world to hold the pink slip in your hands, while it still smell new inside!

Yeah, my rebate check will most likely be added to my savings toward the Camaro.

But, like yourself, I've already chosen the 47" 1080p LCD I want. LOL

You ask HOW to pay cash in 11 months...Well it depends how patient you are! Because were in a time crunch makes it a little harder to save up that much...But a SMART man would wait 2 or 3 years after its release, and buy one used (TOP DOG) from someone whos over extended themself and get it for 5 to 10 k less than new!

My wife and i have lived by this princaple for a long time now...And I will say its very difficult to wait...but its WELL worth it in the end...Just one example and I'll get off my soap box!

I've wanted and H2 for years but they are WAY expensive new...so we waited and waited...and we saved and this year we started looking...with in a month or so i found an awesome deal, and since the money was in the bank we were able to snatch it up.

We baught a 2006 with 15k miles on it...FULLY LOAD and mean everything for 20k less than it cost new, just 18 months ago....thats a HUGH savings! I think I almost cried when I got to finally drive it!

Now i get to drive it everyday and never worry about a monthly payment...I get to spend my money on aftermarket stuff and fill the tank and not stress about it...BEST FEELING IN THE WORLD!!!!!

But can i wait for the new camaro...still remains to be seen...but Im working overtime, cutting back on things we don't need and hoping I have enough for my SS/Z28 when they come out

Well....if you want that TV, you already will be getting it at a much better price than a year ago today. Our $2,200 42 inch plasma flat panel 1080p was originally $2,900. The prices are falling on these like crazy. Many new companies are popping up making flat panel LCD's and Plasmas (LCD's are now becoming more popular due to the fact that you won't get screen burn in). Actually, you won't get screen burn in on a plasm if your input wattage on the tv itself is turned down. We had ours turned down quite a bit since we would get burn in from watching something for about 10 min. THAT was crazy!

But, LCD's are becoming more popular...you can also hook up the video game to it and not worry about that burn in. Plasmas, on the other hand, are MUCH MUCH MUCH better for sports and quick screen/color changing action. Read up on the differences before buying. Plasma prices dropped more than LCD's lately. You WILL find a tv that won't cost you an arm and a leg!!! Oh, and that tv we had? It's gone down $700 more dollars since we bought it..........freakin' crazy.

The one sacrifice being made here will be the SS giving up it's space in the garage for its little brother. And me finding a place to store it at a reasonable rate.

My current car is an '04 and is paid off. The new car bug is gnawing on me something fierce, but I'm doing everything I can to fend it off so I don't have a car note between now and when I can finally order my 5th gen.

I hear ya' on the sacrificing. At first, my thought was to just begin saving where I could, and try to keep my tax return money in the bank, but with a ten-month-old, a new (low-paying) job, and some plastic, I have to come to terms with selling my 4th Gen. I'm not happy about it because I have a lot of money and time invested in it, and have kept it as clean and good a condition as possible. I'm selling it to pay off my debt to just leave a small loan on my daily driver and crossing my fingers to promote in my new job. I hate to sell the car, but I really want the top dawg model (assuming there is going to be one) and have been planning on getting one in 2011. My wife hates that car anyways, and since the new one is going to be worlds better, I think I'll be happier with this car.
