Hi everyone

 

Currently I own a 1998 2.5 TD Limited Cherokee XJ. It's got 95k miles and I'll only be adding 1-2k every year (if that). My problem is do I continue to keep it in the hope it will be a future classic or release the funds now?

 

Looking on autotrader today there are 3 XJs ranging from £8,950, £5,500 and £3,500. Mines in excellent original condition and costs me roughly £500 per year to keep. So for example if it's worth £3,000 today and I keep it for 10 years at an approx. cost of £5,000 do you think it will be worth at least £8,000 ?

 

It's not just about making money, I absolutely love the car and enjoy driving it. However being our 3rd car my wife doesn't have the same enthusiasm so difficult to justify !

 

Any thoughts welcome

 

Thanks

It's not about the money! Keep it - you'll regret it if you don't.  I wish I'd kept mine, but limited storage room.

One life - live it.  One wife - livid!  No wife - love it!

What Jerry said.........keep it! It's already a classic but who cares how many pounds someone will offer you for it, I'd you still enjoy having it the that's worth £10 a week isn't it?
