Bravo!

Think about this for a second. The Yugo. Back in the '80s, dealerships couldn't GIVE this car away. I specifically remember a Denver dealer doing a buy one-get one. Buy a car and get a Yugo FREE. Now one of these in decent shape can bring as much as 3-4 thou on ebay. It just goes to show that you never know what people will be willing to pay and for what. That said, I still wouldn't have bought/taken one back then, even knowing there would be a demand some 20 years later.

Keep the car or don't. Just don't expect it to be worth more than you can get for it this minute. Next year it'll probably be worth less, and the year after even less. If you want to sell, I'd do it now while there seems to be a decent market for clean SVTCs. Only go the 3.0L route if you're planning on keeping the car till the wheels fall off. Not worth it as an investment, only for the love of the ride.

Also, I'd like to know what people are voting for the second option?




You are the gheyness! Does CEG have to make EVERY decision for you? Grow a pair.

Mark




Show me WTF I told anyone to make a decision for me? I'm not asking for decision, I'm seeing how others feel as well. If that was supposed to be a joke, then how about you put a smilie at the end.




That's because I'm not in a smiling mood.

And you've had posts on here about which wheels you should get, what you should do with the Camaro, which guy you should date, etc...

Here's your smilie..

Posts like this come up all the time. If you don't like me asking for fellow CEG'ers advice then don't reply to the posts. Your mother should have taught you, "If you dont have anything nice to say, then dont say anything at all."

I pretty much tell everyone this who considers selling their Contique.

If you've ever thought of selling it. Do it and just get it over with.
How many times have you talked about selling it and then held onto it for a little longer, only to go back to thinking of selling again?
You've wasted a bunch of your own time IMO.
Sell it and stop the endless cycle.

And DEFINITELY don't hold onto a car just because you like the enthusiast's site. Also, don't sell a car just because you hate the enthusiast's site (I've seen this happen on the Cougar boards and it still makes me laugh my ass off at how pathetic that is).

Like stated before, a 3L Turbo is suprising and is amazing at the same time...
