    To trade or not to trade

    First of all let me say that I love my car. I have been toying with the idea of trading the 'bird in on a truck. I have had my car for almost 3 yrs. now and have had no problems out of it. It still runs and drives great but, I feel like it may be time to move on. My wife says I'm growing up.? Wadda ya think

    01 z-28

    its not about growing up. i think its about change.i have a 01 z-28. i got her 5 years ago when i was twenty seven. i had a 97 silverado before the z. my situation was i never had a sports car before. when i got the z iwas like wow! i still enjoy her but i got the truck bug biting me again. so i'm looking around for a used truck. there fun and handy to have. plus there are alot of custom options to add on. good luck with your decision!

    before you sell and end up regretting it, look into a used truck. I'm doing that at the moment to keep the miles off my car. buy one out right w/no lein holder and keep the TA. then you have the best of both words.

    chicks dig trucks. but sometimes i wish i had a SS or WS6. but i dont wish it when i want to go out rides quads. so there is alot of ups and downs. but if you find a fast 6.0 , you'll have the best of both worlds.

    97 GMC with 02 LS6 engine

    I bought a brand new 02 WS6 and sold it for a supercharged X-Terra for the wife. I regret it now and wish I would've kept it because it only had 12,000 miles on it. You might want to consider a truck and a car. The new LSX engines in the trucks put out awsome HP and with some mild mods can compete with most cars on the road. I wouldn't trade my truck for anything so I'm probably going to buy a Silverado SS or something of that stature and look for another low mileage WS6 unless GM comes out with something hot. Just my 2 cents.

    In order to get the truck I would have to get rid of the T/A. I can't afford both. I think I will hang on to my car, for now anyway. Besides in just 3 1/2 short years it'll be ALL MINE!

    Cool

    I have had three T/A's and a Vette. If you sell it , you'll want another in a couple of years. Keep the T/A, pay it off then buy the truck.

    2000 WS6

    I agree with everyone that says keep it. My wife and I both have vehicles (aka "beaters") to drive to work and let our WS6 and my 2500HD sit in the garage. I guess what I'm saying is if you can hold off on getting a truck until your car is paid for you'll appreciate it in the long run.
