What did you give up for your SVT?

What did you sell, trade or otherwise give up to buy your SVT? I sold one of my Mustangs. It was tricked out but barely streetable. I was a little sad to see her go but I'm really happy with my SVT. Here's a couple of pics. Her name was Nicole - part of the team of Paris (my convertible) and Nicole. I named my SVT Lindsay - because I'm rehabbing after the loss of my Mustang.

Thats a sharp looking mustang you had there. But its a good thing you like the SVT so much. And what exactly do you mean by "barely streetable?"

I traded in a 03 ZX3 for my SVT. And was not at all sad to see it go, as soon as I got in the SVT, I had to have it...I origionally went just to look at it, because I saw it when I drove by the night before. I ended up test driving it, and 3 hours after I walked onto the lot, I drove it off the lot.

I kinda miss it.

Respect from from people that aren't into cars. I always get, "Eww a FOCUS!?" But who cares I LOVE my car and will probably never get rid of it. That and it was well worth getting out of driving my parents olds Silohette around.

'95 Acura Integra SE.

All the GSR parts without the GSR engine and tranny.

SVT was a big step up.

What did I give up to get an SVT?

The auto transmission and easy city driving
Space
A reliable worry free drive
The oohs and arrhs from non-driver “drivers”
All the plush creature comforts of a Jap. Drive

Or in other words….Mediocrity

But I LOVE IT!

2005 Dodge Ram 4x4 with off-road package. I love it and I don't want to lose it, but gas is killing me and it's nowhere near as fun...on pavement. I'll be buying an old Ranger or Toyota for dump runs, offroading, hunting, etc.
