As some of you know when I go silent for some time that's probably not a good thing
Of course my head is ever spinning with ideas so here we go for our topic of conversation...
Long story short, my 5thgen has been down another year (go figure right?) And I picked up a 4thgen wagon last Oct for 2g. Been great car this car, however the mod bug itches at me like crazy.
I listed it on our local forum for 3g because I had found a 4thgen GT manual wagon and I was chomping at the bit to buy it. Had finances aligned to buy it but had a gut feeling that I was rushing it. Sure enough, car turned out to be a lemon.
Today I was offered the full the 3g for my car so now here's where we are.
Sell my wagon for the 3g. Resort back to mobbing a family members car for a few months and use that 3g to pay towards my 5thgen and get it back on the road.
Sell the wagon, use the 3g to start getting my 5thgen back on the road but meanwhile find a 10-14outback for less than 15grand (anticipating payment ~275) or 08-12 Forester. Then still slowly work the GT back to glory.
Sell the wagon, use the 3g to get the 5thgen back on the road HOWEVER find a 5-8g vehicle. Which this time I'd find a Jeep Renegade, Chevy TrailBlazer, or Jeep Cherokee. Being to still use for my outdoor lifestyle but I could have a bit more fun with modding than an outback/fozzy that isn't already high mileage or beat up.
I call this one the "Grown-up..." Scenario.
Meaning don't sell the wagon. Wait things out at my new job to see how it goes, see if I bonus, take that money to put towards the 5thgen. Keeps me from any car payments and just continue to play the waiting game to fix my car.
Say **** it. Sell the wagon, sell my 5thgen. Buy a newer 4runner.
Regret it all within a few months and come crawling back to Subaru in a Fozzy, Crosstrek, WRX.
Who's already finished their pizza after reading my novel?
