Thanks guys for your kind words.
The car is not officially up for sale yet. I had a little "oops" recently, so it is in the shop getting the front bumper replaced. No biggy, no frame damage.... didn't even damage the radiator for that matter. It ended up being a blessing in disguise because now the front bumper and paint will be brand new..... no more rock chips, new STI lip spoiler, etc. Good stuff.
Anyway... I love this car.... I wish I could afford to keep it, AND buy a newer nice car, but I can't do both. With that said.... I still LOVE driving it.. I just can't drive it to work daily, and I certainly can't take it on any more long road trips. If I can't sell it... I'll probably just buy a comfortable daily driver.... but it won't be a "nice" daily driver unless I sell the WRX.
If I'm going to sell the WRX, I'm not going half-assed... I'm going to get something AWESOME.... like a 2004-2006 Audi A8. Obviously I'll have to put a few more thousand dollars down on the Audi to get it... so I may wait for awhile to "officially" put it up for sale so I can get through all the expenses associated with Christmas. But.... if I get a decent offer... I'll sell it now.
Speaking of Christmas..... I'm heading to Florida on Monday to pick up my daughter's early christmas present. I'm going to drive it home. She's 16... this is her first car. She's HUGE into Japanes anime, Japanese culture, and love's vintage Japanese sports cars... especially tiny 2-seaters.
2 owners.... all documentation since new.. original window sticker... receipts for all oil changes and maintenance.... everything. The owner of this car is as neurotic as I am.. which is a good thing.
I cannot believe someone actually bothered to keep this type of car in this good of condition... It amazes me when I see it.... and my daughter loves it, which is always important.
Behold.... a 1985 (2nd year of production) Toyota MR2... 100% bone stock and unmolested. It is already bought and paid for and the title has been transferred. I just need to pick it up. It'll be in the driveway this time next week:
