Unhappy Short lived year with the M...

Had it exactly one year now. Got it all refreshed and was about ready to start cruising then tracking this late summer but Iím getting out of the game again to have the finances for our second and last child. Should be enough money so my wife and I can take ample time off right after delivery to enjoy family togetherness and insanity.

Iíve spent a lot of time in the enthusiast forums and this forum has the most mature, helpful, and intelligent members. I wish I could followed through with my plans but another child does sound like a more worth while thing. To the wife. Anyways. Iíve managed to collect csl headers, Dinan struts, and titan 7 ts5 wheels that will never get out on. Iíll post it in the correct section Monday when I get to the shop for pictures. Thanks for all your hospitality! Be back in 18 years.

Having been there, I suggest doing everything you can to keep it. Sell mods if needed but keep the car stashed. You'll regret it.

I tried selling the wife but she doesn’t bring as much money as the M. Her rasp is quite a bit more pronounced. And while her rear end is what got me hooked to begin with, the new csl bootlid just has “that” appeal.

I’m wanting to keep and and moving things around as much as I can. Tons of interest on those things I listed and they look like they will go fast. Life will be ok one way or another. Kinda want a manual slicktop anyway.

Take a bow, Sir.

Also, I hope you manage to keep the car. Best of luck to you no matter what happens.
