Roofing shingles over shingles ?

What are the drawbacks to installing shingles over old shingles. We want new architectural shingles to cover the ugly shingles on our house. We can save a ton of money by not tearing off. The roof was replaced 7 years ago, at which time cedar shakes were removed and decking replaced. The front of the house has 3 tab shingles and the back architectural shingles. We can't figure that one either! What is the level of difficulty of installing new shingles over old shingles... How do you keep them straight..(use the old ones as a guide ?) And are we making a mistake by not spending the additional $2,000 to tear off.. Please help and thanks
