Sorry that I have to do it. But my truck is costing me way to much every month so I have to trade it in. I am taking a $5000 hit on it. And sorry to say I am buying a Ford a 2005 thunderbird convertible I guess it will do for know until things get better. But I am sorry to see her go I am hoping to get one more ride out of her. Crying or Very sad

First off not trying to low ball u or anything, but a thundertird is a old person vehical. You should get a dodge. Fords suck but thats only my honest opinion. I wouldnt want u 2 regret it later because ur givin up a damn nice truck. No offense though.

I look at it this way I am only going to keep it for about a year till I get back on my feet and then buy another srt 10 these trucks are dropping in value so fast by next year I will be able to buy another one for probalbly $15,000. Take a look at the ones for sale at vtcoa.com they are selling for 17-19,000 they are loosing their value real fast nobody really wants them they are good for a weekend truck but for a daily driver the front end is very bad due to the wide tires. And yes ben I will be their this year as long as I can hang with you guys. And as for an old mans car I took it for a ride and it was faster then my daytona and it is so low to the ground that it handles like a sports car. But I will always be a mopar man first.

ever consider an 05+ mustang gt?

those are pretty affordable these days too. and muscular and sporty.

i dont know too many people with newer Tbirds but they really kicked off the retro inspiration

good luck with everything

Beleive me I will own a mopar again but at the moment this are really tough finaniaclly so I do what I have to do. It is a really tough desicion I have been thinking about this all winter. I should have kept my daytona I regret trading it in. I did so much work to that truck.

You have to do what is best for you at the time. Personally I kind of like the t birds. I think they did a nice retro job on them. As I remember you have a problem with the truck being a stick and using the clutch. I wish you the best of luck, I know this had to be a hard decision you have a beautiful truck.

I understand the financial bind, but what I don't understand is why you would let it force you to stray to the blue oval. There are plenty of economical MOPARS to shoose from, most of which would BEE cheaper to drive, maintain, and insure than a Thunderchicken???

Economical and Dodge do not go together. No offense, I like the look of alot of Dodge's, but brick's suck aerodynamically.

Our avenger gets 41 mpg and on the road the bee gets 21 so I personally don't think that's bad.
