Hi folks. Long time Mustang owner - first time poster. I've got a dilemma that probably most all of you have faced, and I need a voice of reason! I have used vintage Mustangs as my primary transportation for the better part of 20 years. But about 4 years ago, my 66 fastback was nearing completion; so I decided to semi-retire it. In doing, I purchased a brand new Ranger pickup as my daily ride. It will be paid off this august, and I have an unhealthy urge. I'm thinking of selling it, and using the funds to purchase another daily driver Mustang.
I've always been "the guy with the Mustang", but not for the last 4 years. I love my little truck, and the fact that it has no leaks or squeaks, cold ac, a CD player, and needs no maintenance - but man, I miss driving a Mustang every day! I feel like I'm wearing someone else's shoes when I'm in the truck.
I simply can't drive the fastback daily. It's restored past that point, and doesn't have ac to boot. I'd like to have a simple V8, 66 hardtop, that didn't have to be so concourse perfect. What makes me want to do this even more, is the fact that I'm self-employed. I don't have a commute at all. I may drive into Austin once a week to visit a client, and they generally ask me why I didn't come in the fastback.
How many of you would sell the truck? Am I being too impulsive by doing it; or not taking advantage of an ideal situation by not doing it? Your opinions are appreciated.
