(actually, it’s his car so I’m not one to say he can’t) And it makes me sad, I just haven’t told him because I know he’s right and I don’t want to make him feel guilty. We are selling it to free up some cash as there are some things we’d like to do to our home. We’re going to keep our daily driver and maybe pick up something cheap so both of us can drive to work all year round. Its a car we drive in the late spring, all summer and early fall. It’s our third that we’ve had like this and sold and it’s going to be the hardest for me that we’ll sell. Which is strange… because our first was in our engagement photos and our second was in our wedding and I had no issues with those.
Anyway… DH seems okay about it and just wants the money at this point. Theres nothing he can really do with this car and he loves to tinker with stuff. This car has reached it’s potential for upgrades that we can afford.
Anyone else get sad about selling things? Please share… maybe it will make me feel better.

Awww I’m just gonna take a guess that this car is a Mustang? A summer car… Hell yes I understand how sad it is to sell a Mustang…
I got a new Mustang last year so I was selling my old one, which also happened to be my first car. It was really sad to never see it again! I was happy about the upgraded new car though, so that helped. But there’s something really sad about saying goodbye to your first car.

We are going through something similar too right now! Except it’s my car that is being sold. FI and I carpool to work and we use his car for pretty much everything. We put 22,000 miles on his car last year and under 7,000 on mine. We don’t drive mine, so it makes sense to sell it, but it makes me sad because I put so much effort into researching it and keeping it maintained when I bought it. We’re going to buy a convertible after we sell it because we figured that if we hardly drive our 2nd car anyway, it might as well be something more fun than a Mazda hatchback.

Pinkmoon: How’d you guess? Hahaha… yes you’re most definitely correct. And all the other cars we sold were mustangs too. Each one got succesively newer and better. Started with a 91, sold it for an 03, and sold that for this 06.
Aw… and your first car, too. I definitely understand. But I bet your new one is gorg and hopefully it helped get you through just like our new deck with help me get through it. Thanks 🙂
bleusteel: Oooh! That sounds lovely and fun. You’re going to have a great time with that convertible. And I think that’s a good plan since you don’t drive it much. Forgive me but…. yolo! haha

Looks like we’re being given a deposit this afternoon to hold the car.
Is it bad that I don’t want to be there when it goes?

I know exactly how you feel! My husband had a BEAUTIFUL sports car that I was completely obsessed with. He got it brand new for a great price and decided to sell it not even two years later because he could sell it privately and pocket around 10k on it. I pouted for like two weeks about him selling it!

orchidaloha: aw. At least he pocketed a nice chunk. But I would be the same way
