Sorry, but we will not be re-negotiating. 1.2 billion will be fine If they balk once it is 1.5bil

We just did something similar. We sold our '99 Tahoe, '96 Impala SS, and '00 Voyager minivan. Replaced them with an '07 Avalanche (mine) and an '06 Infiniti M35 (hers). Have you thought about an SUV? While I'm very happy with my Avalanche, that '99 Tahoe was a good truck - I only sold it because the wife didn't like it (too dirty/stained). But it was paid for...

Good luck Bert.

The Envoy has been my tow vehicle since I bought the boat. It does fine, but is creeping up on 100kmiles. The truck will pull the boat fine, but there are not enough seats for my whole family, and it could use a freshenup of paint, belts, and gaskets. The Cadi gets about 26-28 mpg and I am always out taking pictures, getting signatures, and running general office errands. Note the GMC has some sentimental value because it was my grandfather's.

Here are what I consider to be my options.

A) Sell the Cadi, the Envoy, and the GMC. Buy a new to me 04-08 pickup with 4 doors.

B) Sell the Envoy, Keep the Cadi as a daily driver, and keep the GMC as a tow and trash vehicle (freshen the paint and engine)

C) Keep the Cadi, sell the truck and the Envoy, buy an older 2000- 2004 newer to me p/u with four doors.

4) turn the van into a tow vehicle and see how quickly I can blow the motor(kidding)
Sell them all but the caddy! While you're at it, sell the damn boat too! Tell Leah you'll buy her a sports car in 4-5 years, like maybe a BMW convertable or something like that. BUT, and this is a big BUT, she HAS to let you buy a newer model 4-door V8 truck AND the X2 that Erks got! Damnit man, how much do tags cost you every year for all them damn cars? And What about insurance too? You get rid of all the babbage, you can afford the new boat!

We discussed the newer SUV as an option. A truck is a must have though unless I buy a utility trailer. We have no trash/ yard debris pick-up unless you pay like 50 bucks a month, even then it has to fit in the can w/ the lid closed. I am a fan of paid for vehicles
