there is now a new ram with updated features and a hemi engine that has more base horsepower. The dealership keeps telling me i ought to trade it in and my friends all think the new hemi is awesome, which it is, but they just keep pointing it out. my truck has almost 150,000 on it. ive got more money now and i could get the new one but....

I will NEVER replace this truck. Why? because of the sentimental value of it. The memories, the thrill of owning and upgrading it myself (to have as much or more horsepower than the new hemi), and to have something that you just know is yours and not just the new best thing is something that I think people don't really consider much these days. I will always have this truck because to lose it or get rid of it means to lose, literally, the parts of my life that have been devoted to paying for it and enjoying it.

the same applies here. I also have MANY transformers that my parents bought me when i was young. While they may be used and abused from play I look at them and its just so nice to have a cool transformer that has so many memories attached to it. no other transformer in the world can be the same, a new version would be an empty shell.

If your transformer is beat up or missing parts than get the parts! think of it as helping an old friend that's been with you since you were a kid get back up on his feet!

Just sayin....... haha

I love this! Great analogy and your 100% correct IMO.

Honestly, unless you're lucky, Scamper's gun will cost you more than it is worth. I pieced together a Metroplex a few years back. He was in great shape too. However, the investment felt like wasted effort and money once the reissue hit. I've since sold the vintage one and kept the Encore. I have no regrets whatsoever.
