There is no way for me to know who is following this post on the 2005 spyder or if I am talking to myself and nobody is interested in this topic. I guess the main satisfaction is to be able to tell buyers and sellers about their cars and having a handle on options, colors and other factors and knowing production information and sales trends. If anyone is like me with a low mileage original car, the chrome OBX optional shift knob is getting ready to go discontinued. Grey is already gone. This was a port installed option on the 2005. I bought one for my black 05 because it has all possible options and port options with the exception of the license plate frame which I cannot find. Very few cars had the license frame or shift knob option.

You must have come out of hibernation for the spring. The last red one I didn't have and looks to be a nice car. It has all the goodies except factory alarm.
I did it's a little over 50 degrees today .... started taking the spyder from Mocksville apart today .
It won't be getting fixed .

My mistake. That car moved from Az to Il from when it was for sale in January. Now for sale three months later again. Interesting story that I don't know.

It's too hot in Az. for a convertible so they thought they'd try Illinois .... home of the spyder ranch .

There are a lot of low mileage 2004-05 cars now for the spring and I am getting contacted by buyers looking for the right color and options. My advice continues to be pay a few thousand dollars more for the best possible, low mileage with limited slip car you can find in your color. 2005 first then 2004. If you buy the right car you can enjoy it for years and break even or make a few bucks. That is the goal as very few spyders will be holy grail cars like the 89 mile full option black car. If a PGP car every surfaces with 89 miles I will certainly outbid most of you for that car but unfortunately that car does not exist as I have the mileage on all of the PGP cars. If you are looking at a 2000-03 buy a low mileage knowing it will not be highly desirable with over 50k miles although it will still be a great car. Good luck and contact me anytime for information or advice.
