Well, I have no regrets. Too many things going wrong with the GT, including getting rear ended by a work truck.

Ah, I find the Gladiator more enjoyable than any sports car I have had. All the family adventures will be forever in our children's memories. Can't put a price on that.

Lol. Nope. Dealer already had a buyer lined up for the car. Just cashed out and bought the gladiator for cash. Cheaper car insurance too!

@SWAJeep - No opinions on what you do with your money. I mean I have them but who cares what I think. Pic of your outgoing GT?

Probably the most appropriate picture. This when the top stuck in an intermediate position. Couldn’t drive over 25MPH so had to have it towed.

If you work in the auto industry this isn't something out of the ordinary.....I've see folks trade in their Rolls Royce on a mini, lambo's on a Toyota and the list goes on!

Congrats! Welcome to the CG Club. Enjoy it. I too traded in race cars for this. Mucho funo. As a matter of fact, just returned from a cruise around town with radio blaring. Yep. No regrets.

I went from a Nissan GT-R to the Gladiator (with a one-year break where I primarily drove a beat-up old Land Cruiser overseas) and it was a night-and-day difference. I didn't have any issues with the GT-R like it seems you had with your Merc, but the Gladiator is so much more useful, and I can still get my speed thrills on the motorcycle.
