Buy A Car Then Sell A Car

I was sent this funny poster by a friend. Sure it is funny but let’s take a different look at this by deleting the word “gun” and adding “car”. Now the whole story is easy to get and I am going to help you.

Every time I have bought a new used classic car I never for a minute thought about selling the current one. You see like most I wanted a collection of cars for years. Guns are easy to store and don’t take up much space. A 72 Roadunner next to the 69 Corvette, that is next to the 65 Mustang starts to become an issue. Nearly all of us do not have a Jay Leno garage that you can keep adding to when you find your dream AMC Pacer. Most of us have a standard two car garage and maybe a few outdoor spots.

So what is the solution to the problem? Your better half would say quit buying all these toys and begin collecting match books. You know it’s not the same and there is no substitute for a 70 Mach 1 in the garage. But, do you rent space? Beg a neighbor for there empty spot in the garage? Or should you just be happy with what you have and stop buying ” just one more”. The answers lie in your financial status and your willingness to let the next project slip by you even though it hurts so bad.

I can tell you I always want more cars and trucks. If the budget allows I want to keep adding to the collection, I know you cannot drive them all every day but the hobby is like high end art to us. I once sold my white Corvette to guy who could not wait to get it home and park it next to his white Harley. I understood more than his wife and remember thinking this guy is going to live his dream. Who would want to kill someone’s dream?

In closing, I implore you to live your car dreams. You get only one chance in life and there is no do over. This same phrase can be applied to all most everything but since we are talking classic cars here let’s keep it in the box. Balance your life and be sure you are a good person and all the good will find you.
