thinking of selling am I crazy?

I have a 2002 zo6 bone stock with 19k. I now have a two year old son, hence I use my car less and less. I thought if I had a new camaro with at least a place to put him and the wife at the same time I could use it more. I have previously owned nothing but camaro's including a 69ss I sold to buy my first vette the zo6 I own now. I also know this is a bad time to be selling a vette or any car for that matter. I love the zo6 it is awesome , very scared of regreting a bad decision. Would love some input,thanks.

I don't think it's going to be too much fun putting anyone in the back seat, even a car seat for that matter.

Congratulations on being a father first, car enthusiast second. Fatherhood is the most rewarding and challenging thing you will EVER do in your lifetime.

Go with the Camaro and sell the Z06. Best decision you could make given what you've shared about your circumstances.

Your 2002 will be a classic very soon. The 2010 Camaro will not. Don't trade in the vette after you may (or already) have it paid off. Just go by a new car flat out and keep the vette.

I had an 04 z06 and that car was a beast and handled awesome. Go and drive the camaro first before you sell the vette because you may not like the way it performs, plus it sits completely different than the vette. The visibility isn't the same either.. There are a lot of different things between those 2 cars so be careful in your decision process.

The Z06 has no back seat...therefore you can barely use it..

Even though its a fast car, you need moar room.

If it were a C6 Z06 it would be a no brainer...but...I would struggle with the C5/Camaro as well...
