There is only one reason to change cars. It can no longer fulfill the mission.

Sometimes that is because the mission changes, sometimes it because the car was destroyed, sometimes the car has proven to be too unreliable.

I sold my Vibe GT because my wife needed a bigger car due to her job, and I needed an old truck to do odd jobs around town. When I left Texas and moved to Fargo, the old truck proved too unreliable for a daily commuter. (I walked to work in Texas)

Each time, the mission changed. Although it will probably hurt me to sell the old one ton diesel utility truck. It sure is handy.

Cheers
Qazulight (O course, the Mini Cooper is a blast to.drive)
