Default Trade or sell?

The deal is, if we get the 2000ssei we are talking about here:

http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...ic.php?t=95938

I will need to get rid of a car. I am thinking of getting rid of the 89. Should I try to sell it myself or trade it in? There is no rush on getting rid of it. It is just that there are too many in my drive and the wife wants her own car. The 95 is now the daughters and I have the truck.

Pictures of it are here:

It is in very good shape and I just did all 4 struts on it. If any doubt on the shape it is in you can ask Bill Wren.

What should I ask for it if I sell it?

Matt, it would be sad to see the 89 go down the road, however if it meens purchasing something newer, and something that you and Wendy like, then go for it.

Just looked at that 00 SSEi, that is a nice car, really is.

You won't get much for trade, and since it'* just a space issue, I'd say sell it yourself with patience. You'll get a much better price.

I am going to try to hold it for awhile. I have two kids getting their learners permits this summer. The wife says "too many cars", and " is it safe enough for 2 teens". I personally want to keep it in the garage under cover. The dispute continues.

We will find out on monday if we can get the 00

PS Wendy yelled at me to knock it off when I tested the SC. She wasn't expecting me to kick it down when we were going 25 mph. She was set back in her seat real quick.

LMAO.... Thats how we do it...

If your kids are going to be driving soon, I'd tell you to keep the Bonnie and possibly hand it off as a first car.... At the very least you will be able to feel safe knowing they are driving a large car... Hang on to it if you can..

(Keep in mind that Wendy urinated on my seat one night during WCBF and swore to never ride with me again.....this may make her anti-SSEi in the future)

Matt and LauraBullet were along for the ride. It was fun.
