OK I need some thoughts and help ..... Have an ABM SS paid for!

OK I need some thoughts and help .....

OK all of us with true Camaro blood want a ZL1
I own my 2010 ABM SS (no payments) and my mind thinks I would trade it for payments and a ZL1
The thing about my 2010 Camaro is I do not sweat parking it, driving it and using it as a daily!
My 02 Intimidator is another story never park it unwatched, do not drive it daily and so forth ...it's park and worry car if someone knows what it is (can't be replaced)

Would you drive a ZL1 or should I just be happy with my 26k mile never had an issue car?

I am wrestling with the thought of ordering or not .....

here is the Camaro Garage (notice the Dale Earnhardt Chevrolet badge)

So that means you'd have two cars to obsess about? What would you do for a DD?

I say resist the urge and keep what you got. I'm a fan of not having payments, sure you would love it because its new and the best but then you will just worry about when you gonna have it paid off and not enjoy it as much until you did and then a new model will be here and you'll be asking the same question lol

Keep the ABM. There will be more ZL-1's produced than there were ABM's so they'll be around for awhile. You hardly ever see an ABM on the market.

No payments are awesome. In a few years, something even better will be rolling down the assembly line again. Its not practical to keep upgrading to the next best thing unless you got the $$$.

i think i would have to have a second car that was a beater if i had a ZL1, only because i'd be worried about it all the time too. it's hard for me not to be worried about my SS now, and i think a pure increase in monetary value of an item increases that constant unnerved feeling.

so, to answer your question...just have 1 car that's hard to not worry about. remember, cars are for fun, and stressing about them is not fun

No payments hands down.

You already have two badass cars.

Then again, I don't know what your financials look like. With mine- I'd stick with what you've got now and enjoy. In a few more years maybe get another Camaro when it's redesigned, etc.

Keep the ABM at least until the next gen comes out and see what you have/want then.

Hmmm If you have money to burn I think the ZL1 is a great way to spend it. You will get to use it all the time! I can't imagine that being a bad thing. That said if your thinking it might financially burden you or your family then it's a clear no. But if you got bank then go for it. That's what the money is for! You only live once and life is short so have fun. Just don't put unneeded burden on your family. It's a color vs the most technologically advanced Camaro ever attempted.

We can upgrade what you have and deliver the same level of performance.. then you just have your current car to worry about and it would be a sleeper as well
