A feeler

Not officially for sale, but yes, I am thinking about it. After over 3.5 years, may be time to let go of the croc.

Atlas gray/black leather, 24.3k miles, bose/heated seats.
Only one mod: HID's.

No track or accidents. Not even an auto-x (I know I'm lame, sadly auto-x'ed my zhp but didn't have time these last few years).

Only story ever is that driver's side window was broken and my detector/jacket/gps were stolen.

4 oil changes. New rear tires at around 18k miles.

I deem to be worth in the low to mid-30's.

That seems like a very solid price based on the asking prices I've seen for these cars, though of course I have no idea what the transaction prices actually were.

Good luck--I'd be intrigued if I didn't already have a mid engined Nazi slot car of my own.

I'd be very tempted if I didn't have an 8 year-old who so presumptuously wants somewhere to sit *in* the car.

Equ...

If, hypothetically, a guy showed up for a test drive with his right arm in a slight, would you let him take the car out?

I haven't made my mind up fully yet. I'd be very sad if it went and I ended up without a suitable replacement. Mentally go through the pros vs. cons of selling it weekly.

Just now, with clouds darkening the sky, the atlas gray looked so good, I wanted to come back and delete the post (if not the whole thread). And now it's too late.

Just a sling?? bummer

I broke my right wrist in 84, and when my doctor put the cast on, I convinced him to put the lid from a spray can upside down into the bottom of the cast. I then removed the shift knob and used the lid in the cast to move the shift lever.

That's awesome! Great planning!

Equ,

What's your logic for wanting to get rid of it? You seem to love that car.
