Hey guys - it has been a while. I do this regretfully, but I have sold my spyder. I have had a spyder since early 2005. It is time that I get something a bit more practical. Something I can hold sales calls in, something I can take customers out to lunch in; things a loud and rattle-prone spyder just isn't good for. Rattles and being loud was always one of my favorite things that I loved about the car. Unfortunately I've been driving so much lately that I never had time to work on the car.

I sold the car to someone who is going to take excellent care of the car. I'm sure he's already on the board and is going to pick up where I left off on the car.

I've met many great people on the forums; some lifelong friends. I just wanted to say thank you for all of the knowlege that I've been able to soak up over the years. Take care.

Just because you sold the car doesn't mean you have to leave...if we have "pre" owners here, we can also have "post" owners too.

Let's not talk about what I purchased... okay fine, a Ford Focus. Great gas mileage and way easier to drive 300-400 miles a week in SoCal traffic. Don't hate me or clip any corners of of the man card, guys.

Not a problem...they were supposed to confiscate that from you upon closing the transaction for sale.:eek:

HONESTLY, nothing wrong with being economical in my book. I just sold the ex-wife's 93 corolla with 270K on the clock. That was my work car... how can you not love getting 40 miles per gallon and having 5 seats? I think i love MR2's so much because they rock so hard on efficiency and operating costs!!!

Yeah, being economical is huge here. But more importantly, I didn't have the ability to take calls or bring more than one person out to lunch. In my line of work, sales, that is a big no-no.
