Ok guys, most of you have read my thread "well, it's either the tundra or the cobra jet" Thanks for all your responses. A lot of you have been advising me to sell the Tundra and keep the Torino. I am starting to wonder if you may be right. I need a vote from people who are more detached on this than I am.

Do I sell the Tundra and move the Torino to my garage in Michigan and wait for the market to rebound while it appreciates every year. This would require me to drive my older Chevy Lumina (with the factory HiPo engine) or do a cash for clunkers on the chevy and buy some squirell-mobile for a year.

or

Keep the auction going on the Torino and keep the Tundra.

I drive the tundra everyday. I drive the torino every month.
The torino appreciates. The Tundra depreciates.

I can buy a tundra at a later date for less money than I paid.
If I can ever find another original Torino Cobra it is going to cost me a lot more than what it brings.

I do need to sell one of them.
Practical daily driver or long term classic.
If it was you what would you do?
Simple vote for selling: Torino or Tundra

I will still have to make up my own mind of course but I value your opinions.

Sell the Tundra! Keep the Torino until the market comes back then sell if need be. See what kinda deal you can get by trading the clunker on a econobox. If a good deal doesn't present itself then just beat the piss outta the lumina for a while.

I'll be the one. Cash for clunkers on that lumina and keep the two. Now if one of those two have to go well no choice there get rid of the Ford. If you got your truck to use as a truck then the Ford goes. Apparently you're not worried about gas or mpg's with both of them. Why I say sell the Ford? I read your article which states you are going to still sell the Torino after the market comes back. So sell the Torino.

sell Tundra. well depending on the condition of the torino- frame and interior wise- the value of it well always be on the climbing status as time goes by while the tundra won't establish the status of being an investment until it is at least 30 years old.

Dump the Tundra...it can always be repleced when things improve. Buy an econbox for DD and just suffer the humiliation knowing that you can always wheel out the BIG DOG for a macho fix.

Hate to say it but sell the Tundra. If you sell the muscle car today you will regret it tomorrow. I have a '71 Vette, Nevada Silver color that I have kept thru thick and thin-the gas shortage of the '70's and other mild recessions. It is a T top and one of about 3500 T tops built that year. In time the economy will turn around in spite of what BO is doing to it now. You can get another truck.
Good luck!
