Run the numbers and go with your gut. Classic's are hawt, but keep the Beast if you can. My dinged up two pennies.

if you haven't driven it in weeks then there must be something to it... do you not drive it so you don't have to clean it or just because you don't feel like it? if it's gotten to the point that you don't want to drive it because you don't want to keep cleaning it or don't want anything to scratch it or something then it's time to sell it. I'm sure you love it, but in your situation I'd probably sell it (providing you can get the right money for it). since you already have a daily driver a classic would be a ton of fun. and personally I think it adds extra cred as a MA to have a classic. even if you don't have a new one.

Yah, John set a goal of limiting the miles simply to keep it in good shape and prevent it from becoming a commuter car (it's understandably that special to him). So it would be a bittersweet moment to put the Beast into duty as a daily driver.

From the family point of view, the pickup and the classic would be tough/mildly dangerous in today's SUV world to tote kids around in...I know you're getting another car for the wife for that purpose, but in the event you need it for whatever reason she would be driving the other (pickup/mini) car, something at least for me I wouldn't be cool with. As small as the MINI is, they're a safe car that you don't have to worry about in terms of 95% of car accidents...just my .02...and oh yeah, the beast ownz.

after watching you drive the beast on the dragon. You would be a fool to get rid of it. You'll just end up buying an r56 or starting over on another r53

Naw man, keep the pepper white Beast. I've said it before, and I'll say it again: It's one of the hottest MINIs I've ever seen.

I don't think I will be selling it. As we all know, money talks. I've seen way less pimped MINIs selling for around 30K. I can't promise that if someone walked in with a bag full of money, I wouldn't have an R56 torn down to the ground real soon after but who knows.

I'd put The Beast on sale for some stupid figure that you'd have no problem selling it for and if it sells then you'll have no problem but if it doesn't, you still won't have a problem.
