I've decided to....

I have decided to pursue my dream and purchase a Shelby AC car. Something I have wanted since I was 18 years old and now that I can afford one,I have decided to get one. Now the decision is whether I should sell my new Escape 19' since I doubt I'll be using it as much as I like. Anybody else have competing interests like camping and boating or some other activity that competes with one another?

Well, I know it is hard to have a trailer/RV and see it sitting and not be using it. Neat car and wonderful that you are in a position to fulfill such a dream. I am curious as to why the car would take up a lot of time. Does that mean you'll be doing things like taking it to shows? We have a neighbor with a corvette that he did that with and he enjoyed doing it. I know absolutely nothing about this type of car. Now, if I were to get a car it would be something from the 40's and I would be towing a teardrop!

I see a fine tow vehicle there - why not combine interests!

Well congrat's on deciding to add a lil fun into your life with fufilling a long time dream!

As far as different interest competing with eachother, only time will tell. I suggest holding on to your Escape for this season and see what happens. I know when Rod and I sold our 35ft Class A (because of his health issues), the first nice weekend after we sold it we were both regretting it! Camped once that season in the back of my truck (family campout) and were miserable! Started looking for a smaller solution, ran across FiberglassRv.com and solution solved!

And now the Casita hasn't gotten used much the last few years due to his health issues worsening but that is exactly why I bought a molded fiberglass travel trailer. It can sit for long periods and not be effected! It's waiting for me to begin new adventures................. It's not that I haven't thought about downsizing from the Casita (actually the last few weeks) but know the Casita is still the perfect solution for me at this time. Give yourself some time to decide!

I guess that means that your plans to buy Travolta's 747 have fallen thru?

But it is nice to see a thread where if someone wanted to do something, a total turn in another direction, they would get support in doing that. Gosh, in one or two of the forums I go to, it would not go down like that. Now, if it is a joke, maybe the OP will get some good ideas to ponder.

We just visited the Shelby museum in Las Vegas. It's also where they create the Shelby cars. They no longer build cars but modify pre-titled. Carrol's original cobra is there along with the newest 1000 horsepower Mustang.

In my case, sleeping and staying awake.
