so i ride dirtbikes alot and my friends are gettin pissed cause my celica sits in the garage while they are always driving, and taking me and my bike out to the track, so they want me to get a truck and start sharing the responsabilities, not to mention there trucks arent the greatest either. so i was thinking about getting a tacoma pre-runner or 4x4. now my problem is i owe $20,500 on my celica and i dont think i can get that much for it as a trade in. could i possibly get that much for it if i sell it my self? its a gt-s. ive got it lowered, rmm intake, 5zigen exhaust, trd ss, leather, sunroof, 6spd, 6 disk cd changer, abs, and lowjack. the car is in perfect condition, ive really taken care of it and it looks immaculate in and out, what do you guys think?
and dont be nice be honest, can i get $20,500 for it?

thanks

no. maybe if you got a wing and body kit and found a 15-17 yr old that is obsessed with FnF. The Anti-Rice has been trying to sell his car for $19000 and no takers, and you've seen how sweet lookin his car is.

Two things will get you that price. Amazing performance (race quality) or amazing (show quality) looks.

No you will not get even close to that. I know this is going to suck but if you were to trade in your car for the tuck expect to take at least a 3-4k hit on the trade in. who knows maybe even more. I think the most you could get for it would be around 18k. But that's just my opinion. I plan on trading in my celica for a GTS next summer and I know they will give me around $13k for it even though I still owe $18k for it. Then they will turn around and sell it for 16-17 used. They end up getting you in @ss TWICE!
but it's only money....

Are you kidding me?
Don't make your friends sell u r precious celi.
They don't understand how we performance car drivers feel. We can't rough handle these cars like a truck. I'm sure that's why u don't want to load up the dirt bikes in your celi when u go bike riding.

I treat my car well, I drive my other car when i have to park in rundown or packed parking lots. And I am a bit obessed as to who gets in my car. Others who don't have the cars we do don't understand the fuss we make but u got to put your foot down for how you feel.

Defiler has the right idea here. Wish I would've got to it first
.

Yeah, instead of gettin rid of the celi and taken a $3-4 knock at trade-in, buy a used pick-up for that much if all you're doin is hauls bikes and crap. A semiPOS truck won't dent the insurance too much AND you keep the car you love to drive.

Yeah...I gotta agree with everyone else here...

You are gonna be over on ur trade by about 4-5000 AT LEAST! Take that money that you were gonna be under by and get a beater...


Or...you were looking for a wash as the trade...and putting like 2-3k down...take the 2-3k that you were gonna put down and get a beater!!!

Get the beater truck. If you tell your insurance company that the beater is your daily driver and your Celica is a weekend car it might really help you out on insurance also. Just a thought.

What about getting a small trailer and a hidden hitch to put in the back of the celi?
Right there you can tow the bikes around and won't have to worry on paying insurance on a truck.

hey man well personally I think that your over your head when you bought your celica especially if your paying 20,500 off because when I bought mine I put down 17,000 so it wouldnt be that hard to pay off. But man giving up your Celica would be a tragic day.

He is in over his head because he didn't put down $17K? I mean come on, most people only put down about %15 if that. Not everyone has the resources to do that. I know I only put down $4K and I live at home with next to no expenses, but i only saved up for about 4 months.

Id get a beater. But I would never sell out my Celica just because my friends dont like taking me. Personally I say if they bitch too much and wont do it then theyre pretty ****ty friends (no offense man but Im just stating it like I feel here). My point is why get rid of a car you spent so much money on (even more so with the mods) so you can ride something thats not even worth a tenth of the Celica. Sorry but I say get the beater or find a different friend that can appreciate your car.
