to buy or not to buy
 
I test drove a 2019 Bullitt the other day and all I have to say is Dam#! between the exhaust note, track mode, the shifting, rev matching, etc, the car is awesome.

If anyone hasn't, def drive one if you can.

My 01 is paid for but after driving it do I sell mine outright and trade in the 2018 Camry (daily driver) since i don't want 2 car payments. the 01 I drive 1-2x a week and it has 119k miles on it. suggestions anyone?

You want suggestions? Keep the Camry...It's a much better around town and errands car than any Bullitt could be. Boring? Yes. Reliable and economical? You betcha!

I agree.

Sell the Camry. Buy the 19

Keep the Camry and sell or trade the 01 on a new Bullitt.

Not sure how people are in LV, but here in Houston people have no respect for anyone's property. The thought of parking anything but my beater 03 camry in a parking lot to get groceries or run any kind of errand is nauseating. Been bumped 3 times by people with no insurance and no speaky de english. The 01 only comes out between 6 and 8 am on a Sunday morning then is safely back in the garage.

Did I mention there is bumper to bumper traffic here and driving a stick can be brutal sometimes, even for my 31 year old legs....

Maybe sell the 01 and the camry, by a cheaper cash beater to get around town and have the 19 as your car payment, safely tucked away in the garage?

My .02! Good luck!

I had my 01 at the gym back in 2010 and some JA door swiped the passenger side since it was windy. slight paint scrape and I was able to touch it up pretty good, but when I confronted the owner about it he said "I didn't realize I did that" and that was after i showed him a picture of his SUV next to mine. Point is, people have no respect out here either. I drive the B on the weekends or on Fridays to work. I don't leave it anywhere because of what I mentioned above. Thanks for your comments.

This seems to make the most sense. Sell the Camry (unless you are underwater on it) and use the proceeds and buy a cheap beater. At that point you can either keep or sell the 01 as suits your situation.

Camrys are great cars, but they are like a great fridge, they do their job day in and day out, but there's no emotional attachment. Maybe you can find an older Toyota or Honda that would do the job and allow your Bullit habit to be fed. Should be some nice rust free cars in your neck of the desert.

I can understand that, but it's not forever and if you want it, well, you only live once. :smile2:

It's the same way I think everywhere. I drive a beater everywhere as well and only take my prized vehicle out at certain times and certain days, then it's back in the garage as well. People have no respect for other's property.

Here's my .02, feel free to ignore it completely.

Sell Camry & buy cheep under 4k P.O.S beater to drive around town (think old corolla).

Then do all the mods you ever dreamed of to your 2001 Bullitt including super charger. (I assume its not already SC)

OR

Buy 2019


Nice Car, Let me know if you want to see your rims.
