Wondering if I should sell 2008 G8 GT

I know posting with such a title on this forum probably appears reckless. We are on this forum because we all love our G8s. Without going into a very long story, and therefore to continue without all the context, let me just put it out there. I have a 2008 G8 GT with less than 9,000 miles. It has been in a garage most of its life and that is very sad except it just means it has not been exposed to elements. It has just gotten to the point that it is sad to see it go without being enjoyed and used as it was intended. I have kept up hope that someday I will get to use it more and while that may happen, I just wonder if maybe I should let it go instead. So I have not yet started looking into value or anything and that's when I remembered this forum. I figured it would be a good idea to see what the people who really appreciate these cars have to say and how they might help me get an idea of value. I am not listing anything for sale here, just looking for any feedback so I can become better educated and figure out what to do. I can provide more details, but I figured the year and low mileage says more than anything. It is completely stock.

Thank you in advance. I hope this is the appropriate place to post this on the site.

if you have not driven it for the past 9 years what are the chances you will start driving it ? I say sell it and give someone a chance to enjoy it . I am sure you can still sell for around $25 k

I thought I was bad with only 33K on mine.

Yeah, doesn't seem like he's gonna drive it. So instead of turning it into a lawn ornament, sell it.

If you are already asking peoples opinions it seems like you decided to sell, and maybe want people to tell you to keep it.

I say sell it, let someone else enjoy it.

Knowing the color and a few more facts is crucial in order to make an accurate vehicle value assessment. Having said that, it appears the decision has been made to sell the vehicle, but am unsure what a car with the current mileage is worth given so many variables.
