Crazy for thinking of selling my '68 and getting a 2010

This is my first post but I've been coming to this site for a while now. I have to agree with another member, GameOver620, for saying this site is like crack. I can't stop checking the site, looking for new updates and pictures.

The problem is that I've become so hooked on the 2010 that I am thinking of selling my '68. I've had the car since 1990, over half my life and have never thought of selling it until now.

I attached a picture of my car and can't believe I'm thinking of selling it but at the same time the new one is nice.

So am I crazy or not?

Just something to think about....fast forward 10 years....how much is each car worth at that time?

I've owned and sold a 1955 Chevy Bel Air, a 1956 Chevy 210 Wagon, and a 1956 Chevy Bel Air Wagon. For all three, I never lost a dime on them, including purchase price, upgrades, and maintenance, when I sold them. Old cars hold their value over time and are like a savings account you can actually enjoy while you have it.

With a 2010 Camaro, it's going to depreciate, a lot, for years until it starts to appreciate like your '68 is right now.

Garage the '68 and sell the Avalanche in the background instead.

I agree. Keep the '68. It will just keep going up in value now.

I also agree that this site really is like crack. And all the SEMA news isn't helping any.

Sell the Avalanche, hmm..... I hadn't thought of that one, not a bad idea. Best case would be to have a 2010 with the same color scheme sitting right next to my '68. That would be awesome. I have to start playing the lottery!!!

I've got a 68 and an 87 with a 2010 on the way. The 87 is the likely candidate to go unless I can talk my wife into having all three cars. I will NOT be selling my 68 any time soon. I would keep the 68 since it's been in the family for so long. It would be like selling a family member that you love and would miss (and regret selling!).

I would keep the 68 for sure. Hold out on the purchase of a new one till you can afford the downpayment.

I regretted selling my 87 IROC so much that I bought it back the first chance I got - that's the biggest reason I'm second guessing selling it now. I think I could stand it though if I really love the 2010 like I think I will. I know for sure I will not be selling the 68 as it's been in my family since 86.

Back in about '91 a buddy of mine had an IROC and wanted to trade. It was a nice car. That's my second favorite body style after the '67 - '69.

If you don't owe anything on it why sell it? I say keep it and order the 2010. Trust me; you'll regret it the minute the new owner drives off in it...

Yeah, I don't owe anything on the '68, but the issue is affording the payment on the 2010. I do think you guys are helping me to come to my senses though. I'll have the Avalanche paid off in 4 years, maybe hold off 'till then.
