What if anything did you trade in?

Just wondering what anyone here traded in toward the purchase of their new Camaro?
When mine finally gets here I will be trading in a 2006 Mazdaspeed 6. Amazing thing is that even though the mazda is only a turbo 4 it gets about exactly the same mpg as that LS3 v-8. I only avg 21 between city and highway roadtrips.
I'm also looking to pickup an older 4x4 (s-10, sonoma) to commute to work. If I get a door ding in the employee parking lot in a 10yr old truck I won't be upset like a ding in my new IOM.

i traded in my 2006 Ford Explorer...got $15k towards my Camaro, enough for me!

i wanted a camaro so bad that i was willing to take a 9k loss from when i bought the explorer to when i traded it in (only about 18 months from when i got the explorer)

I traded in a 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP. the V6 with a super-charger. I lose some room but pick up some power, fair trade I think.

I sold my 2002 Monte Carlo SS. It was six years old and it only had 35k miles on it. It was Cherry. Paid in full. I should have just kept it. Great car.

I sold my 2001 Mustang GT with many many upgrades including my favorite- 3.73 gears and 100 HP Shot of Nitrous. The car dyno'd at 367 rwhp 462 rwtq on the juice. It was a great car, but the new 2SS is helping me get over the sale.

I've considered trading in my RX8 multiple times for a speed 6. Those are great cars.

I will more than likely be trading my 07 Mustang GT. What I have been offered is pretty much the same as what I owe. I'll be getting a 2LT RS. Yeah, yeah I know "not an SS". I wish I could get an SS, the insurance would be killer (I've got a lot of speeding tickets), and I just don't make enough to comfortably enjoy the SS. Congrats to all that can though!
