you'd be VERY VERY lucky to get it paid off, look for a loss... I would say keep yours and do stuff to it, and look at that model in the future once your wife is sterile, cant have kids, and you want a real baby

lol, david shutting up again :)

probably not on the loan unless you have crystal clear credit, in your case your parents... i doubt it though

it isn't a wise financial decision for you to make right now. i am the same way, or i was as you. you get it all in your head, you want it so bad, but it doesn't make sense financially, pay this one off, work on it, make it good. save your money.

send $1 to president bush for the afghanistan kids like he said on the news today. your situation isn't in the good for you. go get a body kit with the extra cash, make your car the best

if you want, i'll help you make it a targa tib like mine hehe :)

If you are that bent on getting a new Tib then wait til the 2003 hits the street.
There will be many improvements made including a design, a V6 and a 6spd tranny.

By the time this hits the streets you may be able to trade yours in.

Wait till the 2003 Tibby hits, then go shopping for 2001s. They'll be dying to get rid of them and they'll be offering HUGE rebates.

AND... start trying to sell yours now. You will get a thousand more outta it selling it to a bumb on the streets vs. trading it in. Have a friend, and if u don't have one, make one :) that can pound the dent out for ya and make it pretty again hehe.

Yeah, wait till they are on sale, look around, or, go get a $750 accent and do a quad throttle body set up (mwuahahaha)

The 2000-2001 model tibs aren't common, and dealers won't have much trouble getting rid of them once the 2003's hit. Don't forget, the V6's probably won't carry the same price... look for a fully loaded 2000, as they are the exact same as the 2001's (I think, except they don't make 2001's in white)... it'll be a lot cheaper too, I've seen a 2000, fully loaded go for around 16k (canadian, which is about 11-12k US)
