Sold my 67 garage queen for the jeep, good news is the jeep got a $20,000 down payment.
It never saw a garden hose or the rain while I owned it, and thats hard to do in the rainy state.
I think I see a 69 Camaro in my future.

No way, not even for 2 jeeps. Building this hotrod took years of hard work and is the true definition of blood, sweat, and tears. Built not bought!!

No 1/4 mile track runs yet. She spent the summer getting broke in and tuned on the street shaking windows and setting off car alarms. Lol

My most recent car was the Cadillac CTS-V. It doesn't look it but under the skin it is full modern musclecar. But when I bought the JLU I kept the CTS. Unfortunately with the pandemic having me work from home and almost never leave home, I don't get to do much driving of either car.

If I could I would find one of the CTS-V wagons. Those things are badass. As I said earlier in this thread, I also own a Chrysler 300 SRT-8. Looks pretty chill but all muscle car with about 425 hp. I love it

I too have a Mustang and my wife just got a JLU. I really like it and am considering a JT when the time comes. Although the wife says the Mustangs stays. I'm good with that.
We did the same. My wife ordered her third Mustang, a 2005 GT, and she’s loved it ever since. She’s had it more than fifteen years. It’s got 52,000 miles on it and still looks new. There’s no point in selling it, as it’s not worth anything — and it’s still fun on sunny days.

The 518hp, 6.2L V8 was only going to get me killed or thrown in jail for speeding tickets:

Much happier with the JL:

I didn't, but I'm kinda thinking of getting rid of it anyway simply because I don't drive it much.

Well the JL is really my first "nice" vehicle, I had a pos ford focus before. Ive always wanted a badass mustang, challenger or a Jeep. It came down to the JL, as with discount is was the same as a newer Jeep used, or this 2013 BOSS 302 in orange with under 30k km on it, super sexy car.

For the reasons everyone else has stated (I'd probably be in jail by now, winter is completely terrifying in a 5.0 mustang, etc.) wife talked me out of buying the Boss 302, and I'm honestly really happy with that decision. I can enjoy my hobby without legal ramifications. I will own a special edition 'stang or a scat pack challenger someday. Just needed to meet our needs first. The only problem is now she wants a Jeep too so that might be a while...

1996 Impala SS. Had fun for 24 years and put 75k miles on it. But after getting a 05 TJ, driving a car was just blah. Now I am putting a 5.7 SBC in a 2000 TJ and wife has a 2019 JLU. So over the car, it is in storage waiting for my son to get off his rear and get his license. LOL. Nope, don't miss it at all.

I actually sold my 2017 t/a 392 challenger earlier in the year to save up for the new bronco.

i got sick of all the delays and wasn’t thrilled with the amount of options that were tied to certain trims making it really hard to get something desirable for under 55k, so I said fuck it and bought a Jeep.

I still have this though so now it’s the best of both worlds...
