Should I Keep My Car?

Asked by Max Nov 15, 2017 at 02:51 AM about the 1976 Ford Torino

Question type: Car Selling & Trading In

Been looking at getting a winter vehicle, powerstroke specifically, but my
main question is it worth it to keep my classic car? I know the prices for
classics go up, but how much?? It's all original and basically mint cuz it was
garaged it's whole life - 100K Miles and everything that's not original I have
the original parts for, such as hub caps and wheels. Original paint ect interior
is more then less flawless too, I'm only 16 and don't have much cash -so
would possibly trade unless it's the wrong move. thanks for you're time, Max

It is a 4 door and a 76 so probably not going to have much collector value. So you are 16, don't have much cash and thinking about getting a Powerstroke. That would likely be a big mistake. Diesels are very expensive to repair and maintain. I would rethink getting a diesel.

I would definitely keep it, drive it, and enjoy it. Modern vehicles like yours are not likely to achieve collector values in our lifetimes, if ever. So feel free to rack up the miles and have a good time! If it's not giving you any trouble, why trade it for something that will give you a headache and a payment?
