    Just got a call from my buddy, he told me my old big block 63 dart is for sale. I would have to sell my 66 belvedere sedan tho. What to do?

    the question should be, do you miss more than what you have now? its really up to you?

  5. I view the cars that I got rid of like women.

    If it was a rough ride-N.F.W.

    If it was a nice ride and easy on the wallet,I might go back.

    I keep the real goodies and run em hard.

    Usually if I get rid of them there was a reason and no need to go back.

    '63 Dart = ugly

    '66 Belvedere = cool looking

    Verdict..........keep the Belvedere.

  12. I agree with this in general

    "Usually if I get rid of them there was a reason and no need to go back."

    The lure of the "fond" memories of the old car may be out of proportion to what it really is. If you get it you will probably say "why did I do this?" after the honeymoon fades.

    In most cases the memories are better than reality.

    How 'bout you do whatever YOU want, and not what WE want. Just a thought.

    Treat the Dart like an old girlfriend,take a good look and think I had that before and moved on.

    Moved to Oklahoma from L.A. and did'nt want to make another trip. Thanks for the input
     
  19. I had a 66 El Camino i sold a few years ago that i would buy back in a heartbeat if i had the chance. Like most people are saying, its your own choice.
     
  20. This seems like a no brainer to me... If you ever caught yourself thinking "I wish I could buy my old Dart back..." then you wouldn't be asking us, you'ld be doing it. If you haven't thought it, then maybe you're hoping we'll talk you into it. Why?
     
  21. Have you ever said to yourself ?
    .. I wish I had never sold my (insert car)
    OR
    .. I wish I still had my (insert car)

    Usually said after seeing a pristine example of one
    when, in reality, yours was a piece of shit and that
    is why you sold it ..
