Hey guys, im sure alot of you remeber but its been a while since i've posted here and had my bird. But, i am in need of some moral advice from you guys as i dont know what to do.

The guy who bought my bird e-mailed me and offered the car back as he is selling it for something new. It is still in mint shape and only has 71,xxx miles on it now. I want the car back and money isnt the issue but as some of you remember i deliver pizza to help get through college. I use a beat '97 Buick Century so i can keep miles off my 5.9 Limited grand cherokee.

If i were to buy the T-bird back i would have to get rid of the Buick, and thats easy cause my sister wants it for some reason lol. The problem is, the bird will have to become what i use to deliver pizzas with....

Heres the dilemma, should i pick my old car up and beat it for work, or let it go??? I really want the car but i would rather beat it up and fix it later then let it go forever.....

What would u do????

if your sister will be nice to it get the bird for her and then trade her later. just make sure you are both clear on the terms. that way you won't be beating on it all around town, but it will still be waiting for you in a few years.

well, im assuming i can keep the bird nice and deliver with it at the same time. I have been delivering with the buick for 2 years now and nothing has deteriorated on it (except for the odometer). All i have been doing is maintaining it extra carefully and keeping it clean. If i can, (and i will) take care of the T-bird the same way it should be ok....

Consider this your only chance to get something back that you obviously like. These chances rarely happen. If this 'bird is a car that you would look back on when you get old and say "Man, I wish I'd never sold that car", then get it back. If not, then let her fly on.

Whoever else buys it is likely going to just treat it like a cheap 11yr old car and beat the piss out of it anyway. Perhaps use it to deliver pizza's. lol

Being as you actually care about it, I think it's better off if your the one racking up the miles on it...

Heck Yea, Buy it back. I would find some way to avoid having to use it to deliver pizza though. Like marvintpa suggested let your sister drive it until you can use it for something other than delivering pizza.

Or, if money's no object, like you say, pick yourself up an old Ford Escort, Second generation (1991-1996) or Third generation (1997-2002), and use that car to deliver pizza. They're a dime a dozen and would make a great beater for pizza deliveries. I use to have a '86 Escort they're actually kinda fun to drive. That way you could keep the T-Bird safe and keep the milage down.

Dude, you always say you miss your Bird and wish you could have it back. Buy it back no matter what. Here's an idea... sell the SUV, drive the buick for pizzas, and mod the Bird.

how about this? buy it back and on the days you work to deliver pizza you borrow the buick from your sister and she uses the bird that day. I think thats the best solution, assuming you trust her not to smash it up.

I want to keep both, but my father wont let me have any more then 2 vehicles while i am under his insurance. Im not sure why, but we have argued about this numerous times...

I would just go on my own insurance plan, but being a 20 year old male in NJ with a 5.9l Grand Cherokee, a 4.6l Thunderbird, and a Buick, i just dont think it would be the right move financially.

oh and btw, Jeep isnt goin anywhere :diablo: That thing is a monster and it would take alot of money to get that T-bird close to the power that thing has. Also, i need it for the beach. (thats why i got rid of the t-bird in the first place.:D )

My Dad first got married at 18 and his first wife (ex now) made him sell his 1967 Pontiac Tempest convertible to pay for there wedding. It was candy apple red with a white top and only 2000 made I think he said. But he loved that car sooooo much and he always tells me....NEVER let a woman talk you into selling your first love (car). At the time he sold it for $3000 but at the time it was a couple years old and ended up divorcing the b****! Keep the bird, be happy and drive what you like!:thumbsup:
