Thinking about selling my 633csi will I be sorry?

Frankly I have too many cars. 1983 500SL, 1988 Volvo 244, 1983 633CSI, 1984 Volvo 245 turbo wagon and a 1992 Volvo 745 turbo wagon.. The reality is that I don't drive it that often. I was a car I always wantd as a kid. One came up one day for a good deal and I bought it. I drove it last night just to drive it, the reality is that it does not really get enough use to justifly the insurance, upkeep and the space. I'm afraid if I sell it though, I might be sorry ten years from now.

I'd dump one of the Volvo's and keep the 633. IMO, Bimmers are way more fun to drive.

I agree... Dump the worse of the two wagons and keep the 633. BMW coupes are hot! I was looking for one but ended up with the 528.

I also agree.... Keep the 6er, and drop one of the Volvos.


The BMW is just that cool...

Just sell the 633 and one or two of the Volvos and buy 88 or 89 M6. The car I always wanted when I was younger.

I think you have wonderful taste in cars, and you know you and I have discussed Volvos at great length, so I know *WHY* you got each Volvo you own, and why they all are so good. You bought very wisely


So, I would try to keep all of them if I could. I lmnow that is hard and if you are single and dating it is harder!

But I would try and hang on to ALL of them, if you can keep a place to park all of them

Parking is not so much the issue, it's just keeping all of these cars, insurance etc. I really only drive one at a time. I love the the 633CSI, and I would not give it away, but I really hardly drive it. Not to mention, the wonderful women that I'm dating enjoys my 745 the most. I think that shows something great right there. Anyway, its hard to say what to do. The SL is not going anywhere, the bmw is a great car but it has the second to the most miles and it's my biggest money pit. I do love it though. I'm sitimentlily attached to the 88 244 as it was my first car. The 84 is a great car, but the 745 has the best seats, runs and drives great and it's red. I have never had a red car lol.

I envy most that girl you have. She sounded like a gem to me.

Have you asked her what her opinion is, about all of this, keeping in mind the final decision must be yours?

She said she loved the Sl and that I should keep that for my fun car and have the 745 for a daily driver and that I should sell the rest.

I see some logic to this, in that she only has one car, but Most of the cars she mentioned that I should see have senitmental value to me. Such as my 88 which was my first car.

In a way, I feel I could sell the BMW, as long as I get the right price, and then look for a better example of the same car.

Hmm it's hard to say. I have though of selling the BMW in the past, but when I get in it and drive it I love it.

I guess in all reality, it's not that bad. I have friends that are spending $350/month for one car note. At least all of my stuff is payed for, so maybe I don't have it too bad.

No you don't, at all!!!! The payment on the new Subaru is $907 per month, but at least it is zero percent, and only lasts for 2 years from last March.

And I don't have a girfriend either, not to mention one as nice as yours. LOL
Yet. ...(but that is being worked on...)

X2. You only have one Bimmer, and they do turn a corner like their hugging rails.....
