Default Am I crazy??!!

So, I'm thinking about getting rid of the Mustang for potentially an Infiniti G35 or G37 sedan... Something a little more practical, but still a little fun to drive. This could also save me a couple hundred bucks a month. Am I crazy??

No, there has been a few members who traded their Stangs for other vehicles, only to be back a few years later.....go ahead and feed your crazy mind!

I've been thinking the same thing. I just paid off my 2010 and thinking about getting a Subaru WRX. I like the idea of all wheel drive. But it's hard to justify trading in a car with only 31000 miles when it's already had most of deprecation. Also wouldn't want to get into another car payment. On the other hand I'm planing on putting new tires on this week at a cost of $700-800. I think I can probably get about $18,000 to 20,000 on a trade and keep my payment about what it previously was. If I don't pull the trigger in the next few days and get the new tires then there wiould be no way I would trade the car in for at least another year or 2. The new Mustang hasn't really grown on me. Maybe if I see one in person it will, who knows.

Yes you are, go ahead and do it. Like Roy R said you'll be back.

I did the same same thing years ago; traded my 99 GT in for a Jaguar S type sedan in 03. Kept the Jag for two years and right back into another Mustang. I'll never do that again, to this day that 99 GT is the only car I've ever regretted selling.

Just curious, how would you save money? Would the Infinity be a used one?

If I needed the practicality I would go either 300 or Charger 2010+ with the hemi. Perhaps the focus ST or WRX could be on the list too since they are manuals are high on the fun factor. G35/37 are just glorified Altimas. Sure they are nice and practical but not much more fun than a Camry or accord.

We put 106,000 miles on a G 35x. Great car but totally different than my Bullitt. Reluctantly traded for a Jetta Sportwagon TDI so I could carry a string bass. This is also a great car but a totally different vehicle that we also use heavily.

Bottom line, the world of cars is more than Mustangs, but you can't "replace" a V8 rear wheel drive car that doesn't look like anything else on the road.

I'm just kinda kicking the pebble around. I'm not hurting for cash, just thinking more practical. And yes, the g35 or g37 would be used. I hate dodge, so chargers are out. Thought about the focus ST, but it's still a focus, I can't bring myself to get it. My wife had an 06 focus that was absolute garbage; died at 90k miles. But again, I haven't jumped off the ledge yet, and if it helps, my wife thinks I'm crazy too, haha.
