got up at 6:30 this morning and drove to JKF airport to pick up the buyer of my Sportline. I hope he posts with his impression.
He's driving it from NYC (Fort Lee, NJ actually) to Pittsburg, PA... a 6-8 hour drive. So sad to see her go, really. she's so beautiful and in a very good condition (40K miles).
The buyer had Benzel Busch inspect the car top to bottom. The technician who did the inspection called the head foreman to check out my Sportline since they know what it is and i think it's been years since they saw one in the condition she was in. They kept saying how great of a condition she was in and was very impressed.
It's so sad to see her go but she's going to a home that'll offer her better housing. I had fixed a few things and got her up to snuff but there's just no way i can keep her under the covers on the driveway. she really deserves to be in a garage.
So until i figure things out, it was a pleasure and an honor to be a participant of this (and other) boards.
I'll kick myself when the reality kicks in that I no longer have her.... just a matter of time... just a matter of time..
PS: I'm actually on the look out for another benz... when the transaction goes thru, posting the new one will be immediate!
