First off, my condolences on the passing of your mother.
What to do when you’re underwater after it is “done?”
I think that depends less on the car in question, or any arcane appreciation depreciation curves, but more so on the person who is considering the question.
For me, I can only speak for myself…
Yes, it is entirely within the realms of possibility that I will be upside down on the beetle, at the very least. This is a factor of me being a total rube in buying them even after all of these years, or maybe just being a sucker for any intact autostick vw I find.
The truck? It’s a daily, and it is kind of too soon to tell.
Would I willingly sell either? Interestingly enough, this question has come to the forefront for me, because of recent financial setbacks for my family.
My answer is a surprising and resounding yes, however my wife knows me too well and told me not to sell either. She’s afraid I would pout and not be happy (true, too true indeed by far) but also resent what the monies would go for. That last is patently false.
