Keep the car or buy another truck?

Ok i have a dilemma, i love my car. But its not a truck. Before i got my 97 PSD i had a 03 7.3. Here lately, i've been on the fence about what to do, the 97 isn't going ANYWHERE, but i cannot make up my mind on keeping the car or getting a crew cab or x-cab. I just don't know... sometimes i wish i was one of those people who drove whatever and dint care, but i'm glad i'm not

What should i do???

Heres the car... 06 Mazdaspeed 6... 6-speed, turbo... troublemaker


1997 F-350 7.3/Auto, 1997 F-350 460/5spd, 1997 F-250 7.3/5spd, 2012 F-350 6.7/Auto

for me it is an easy decision. Truck, I am not a car person at all. I do like corvettes and old muscle cars but a truck is still what I would rather have...Just my 2cents

car or buy

If it was me, I'll just buy another truck and I'll upgrade the parts of my car too. You already said you love your car right? Are you going to let go of something you love to ride?

I say if you decide to keep the car you trade it in on a car with 8 cylinders, like a nice mustang.

I'd wait to see what the gas prices do. I'm in San Diego where diesel on average well over $4 a gallon. My daily at this point is a 03 Impala and it's not going anywhere, but neither is my truck til river time!!! I'd keep it just to save some bones IMHO...
