I may end up selling my Trackhawk.

It's been broken in correctly, had a 500-mile oil change, and has been treated nicely. Not even a 0-60 run yet, but a couple of 60-120s. Coming up on 1,700 miles.

Velvet Red, titanium colored wheels, and the tow/spare tire package, which brought the MSRP to $89,600.
Has a dash cover, seat covers, Husky floor mats, and rear vent visors.

If someone makes me a decent offer, I most likely would sell it at this point.

Too many vehicles to maintain is the main reason. And now that the weather allows using the Challenger, I prefer driving it. The little I drive in the first place.

Will I regret selling it when it gets cold and wet again? Maybe.
But then, I'm not so sure I'd want to subject it to salty roads, either. So far I haven't even driven it in rain.

Selling the 'Hawk would really be the smart thing to do, I think, and go back to driving the boring Ram 1500 when the weather's bad, or a Challenger's trunk isn't big enough.

Have an offer for 73K. Still not sure if I'll sell it or not.
Well, for 73K I won't.

just keep it! is it the smart thing to do NO but you also seem like you dont want to take the hit (dont blame you) so just keep it a little longer. you will notice the TH isn't on clearance sale anymore. used ones are holding value if not costing more. If no 2021s come out that will help you a lot. I know they been out since 2018 but not everyone knows what they are still more that figure it out and the less of them the more you will get back or not loose when you sale.
I want out of mine also I need bigger my damn arm hit the pillar and long ride starts to bother me. But Im to cheap to take the hit. its cheaper to keep her,lol plus its so fun to drive around town to and from store

You are making some good points there, ROCKET.

But, this morning I was trying to remember when I drove the Challenger last (which I like driving even more than the 'Hawk), wondering if I should put some Sta-Bil in it soon.
And the 'Hawk is now on a battery maintainer, since it's been so long that that battery was down to 12.5 Volts.

yes that would bother me also. Good luck with what ever you decide having a Challenger also would make it easier to let the TH go. That has to be way more fun to drive.

If it was the other way around, and I had started with a 'Hawk, I would've likely thought that it couldn't get any better.
As it is, I prefer a few things with the Challenger. Its lower weight being one of them.

If someone offered me 75K at this point, I'd most likely take it.
And then probably regret selling.

It's getting better. A "local" Porsche dealer is offering 77K. Or up to 79.9K if they get it on consignment.

You may have a good point there. The consignment deal may not pan out, but 77K is tempting,
Especially since I didn't have to pay 90K.

Looks like it'll go for 75K. Oh well.

Nope, after much hesitation on my part, now it's up to 76K...and will most likely get sold.

That's the bad part. I don't know if it's the best for me.

What I do know is that it's one more vehicle that's not being driven, which bugs me. And maybe since this has turned into oil change week (I'm halfway through filling the second 55-gallon drum this summer) it adds to the feeling.

Ironically, yesterday I noticed that the '14 Ram 1500 it would largely replace costs more in insurance ($40 vs. $48) than the 'Hawk. Ultra boring costs more than great fun, go figure.

As I'm digging out the title and other paperwork for this car, I noticed that enjoying it for 8-1/2 months and putting 1,805 miles on it has cost me 6K.
That's not too shabby, considering that it's not even a trade-in, but a straight sale. And they'll probably be out at least 1K for the 1,000-mile transport.

Okay, I can't do it. Sell, that is. This one will stay with me for a while longer.
The prospective buyer didn't like my decision, but I hope I will.

Glad to hear you're keeping it. I've had regrets about several fast cars I've sold over my lifetime.

My TH and three other pricey cars of mine rarely get driven. But I figure that once electrics and hybrids take over all new cars in the future, I'll be very glad I kept my low mile gasoline screamers.

Thanks, Black Track, that is a good point. Besides, we supposedly only live once.
I'll garage and cocoon the ultra boring Ram 1500 that it was supposed to sort of replace, and enjoy the 'Hawk.

If the 'Hawk ends up wrapped around a tree, or down a cliff, because of me driving too fast on wide tires in slush, so be it. Then I can retrieve the 1500. And I'd probably be driving slower by then anyway.
