Good story - even as fiction....
Maybe I'll have to work on being in Leona Helsmsley's dog's will.... You could buy a lot of cars with $12 million...

I traded in my 2001 75th Anniversary Edition Pontiac Grand-Am GT for a 2002' Cadillac Seville STS before my son Brock, was born. I was happy about the trade as I got a much nicer car and it was more solid in the winter.

Just before our first son was born I moved off a territory job to a factory position and had to give up my company car.
I had a 1992 Suzuki GSX1100G...
And traded it for a silky smooth 1993 Buick LeSabre...
Dang...the Edmunds picture almost makes it look appealing...mine was tan...maybe it wasn't a bad trade...

Don't forget, that 'almost' is a BIG almost!

I had a really nice '95 300ZX that I gave up. I still regularly think about getting another.
I drove my wife's car for a while so she could get a safe four door (new BMW with a manual) for the baby. W quickly grew out of the BMW and when she was getting ready to have our second child, she got an Odyssey. So, I got a little vindication in the end.

it had a payload upgrade and i put bigger shocks and 31" tires on it. v8 4 speed manual. when i saw my daughter's head bouncing around with every bump in the road and after i lent it out and the next time i went drive it, a tire was flat, it had no gas, and there were week old smelly beer cans in the cab, i decided it was time for it to go. traded it for a more family friendly ' 89 taurus sho.
