Goodbye Celica? having trouble making a choice.

I spend too much money on my car and now im getting older and its time to get another car and leave the import world. I found a 75 vette with 15,000 stock miles on it in MINT condition.(btw the old guy selling it onyl wants 9 gz for it) what do you people say...goodbye celica and hello vette?

here is a pic of it.

all i would do to this is redo the inside..and make sure that the engine is reliable. I mean, its american and its a 75..VERY SIMPLE..any mechanic can work on these parts..and if something goes wrong..jstu gotta replace it..nothign tricky to it. So im thinking of getting this instead and just having a pimp ride. This way i can stop my addiction with ading stuff to my car and being broke..lol now i can focus putting my money into more important things. I am goign to be so sad to se it go..but i think im making the right decision.

I agree with spaztikid

keep both..

the celi would be a daily driver and the vette be a nice weekend car.. i mean it would have to be in pristine condtion at only 15,000 for such an old model.. well hopefully you keep both..

otherwise it all depends upon what your really after

i say get something else, you're going to mod anycar...and plus, if you're smart enough, you can keep yourself from modding it and know what's necessary.

Exactly.

I like the 'vette overall, even the stingrays.. but if it was me, I'd feel like going from a nice new modern car to a old 70's car would feel like I became a redneck running my noisy ass weight on wheels. I'd keep the Celica, the only 'vette worth a trade is the newer one's.

77 had all that emissions crap. It's cheaper to mod, but the celica is just amazing. I don't like the looks of the stingray. I'd keep the celica, even though rwd does rock.

that vette looks like it belongs in a museum thumbsdown

it might be an ok weekend car, that's about it... the road/engine noise would drive me insane, and the ride compared to a celi would suck ass...

it's def not a step-up, but if that's your dream to own a car like that...

Vetter > Celica. Parts are cheaper & it's already fast. It doesn't matter what car you get if you can't get it through your head to not go overboard w/the mods.
