    two cars to deal with, what to do keep limo or flip it??, muscle car up (mopar)

    most of you guys saw the pics of the 68 series 75 limo I bought 58,000 original miles super clean original paint
    I was real happy to get it, now out of the blue The car I have been pursuing for 5 years becomes available, sadly due to my friend passing away, so now I have to decide , keep the classic muscle car (that's easy!) and or sell limo, or keep it in storage, I just opened a bar/restaurant and my time has been limited to do anything
    but the charger r/t is already been started on, I may flip the limo to someone who wants an easy winter project
    both cars are low miles 56,000 on the charger

    Sorry to hear about your friend's passing but that charger looks cool!
    I would keep the limo but I'm too hard headed to drop a car project even when I have too many of them to focus.
    Just out of curiosity (and don't tell the wife I asked...she'll beat me) what would you need to get out of the limo if you do flip it?


    Also, how's the hand doing and the biz? I still need to make it down there!

    Tough decision. I'd keep them both for about a year to see which one you like better, which is easier to deal with throughout the year and which one grows on you.

    Tie the limo into the business and use it as a deduction/depreciation against you taxes.

    Throw some magnetic signs on it and offer it to "select" regular patrons for an evening with a driver. A guy in town just leaves it out by the road with signs on and commutes in it and writes off the upkeep, expenses, and depreciation.

    Sell limo
    Sell that tripple black
    buy R/t
    buy another Fleetwood
    invest in r/t

    Cash will be more available with both Cadillacs sold for a chunky profit.
    When will you find another R/T?

    Peace

    Noč

    Sounds like you already made your decision. Aleays frustrating when the car you've been wanting becomes available at an inopportune time.

    Hire a driver for the limo to drive the patrons home after they spent 100$ on drinks, trust me it will work.
