Default Baby on way! Selling Turbo Car!

Well, I HAVE A BABY on the way!

I'm excited. Not much longer!

I posted up the Turbo car in our classifieds, and her Altima on CL to get her a SUV.
At the age of 35, I'm finally making my mom happy with her first grandchild. Painting the nursery, putting the bed together.
Trying to find a RUBBER Miata somewhere...... lol

Man, kids really do ruin lives.

Why are you getting the wife an suv? Her altima is a 4 door, perfectly capable of hauling 2 kids. But if you really think she needs to be able to haul an entire neighborhood full of kids, why not a mini van, they're much more practical, economical, and comfortable than an SUV.

^ That. My friend has a kid and hates her SUV, plus they are more prone to rollovers than any other vehicle. But if you HAVE to get an SUV...

I'm sure they would have been much better off without me.

Good news, there's still time to fix that.

Agreed. Seems my parents did just fine with four door cars. When I was kid my dad's DD for a number of years was an '85 GT Mustang.

But then again I'll probably buy a crew cab F150 as a DD next year to justify 10-12 times towing a year.

Ignore the above statement. Having kids is the best thing you'll ever experience in your entire life. Nothing compares to it, even remotely.

Congrats.

Yeah when I was a kid my dad always had a single cab truck and my mom would have an assortment of smallish (compacts by todays standards) like cutlass or grand am or cavalier, and now a cobalt. Was never a problem. We did have exploder for a short time instead of a truck. That sucked.

After my 3rd kid was born, I bought a second Miata. Why get rid of a car that you're not making payments on? I've never understood having children as an excuse for selling a Miata.

But whatever you decide to do, congratulations on the kiddo.

I'm with the minivan > SUV crowd. My mom has driven different minivans for the last 20 years or so. It is always annoying when we rent a car on vacation and get a explorer-sized SUV that fits HALF of the **** the minivan did.

THANKS everyone!
Well I'm selling more than just the Miata. I'm selling the 73 Stingray, my 750, and mabe even the 63 Conv. Falcon.

All the bills from finishing her Bach. are coming in, and I'm wanting to pay some off. I would also like to get rid of the Altima payment. And just pay cash for a Nice Tahoe etc.

If I do it this way I can drop $1000 a month in bills before the baby gets here.

After I finish school, I'll treat myself to something or several somethings. lol

Is this considered a SUV?
