$9K or best offer

^-- that's the sales ad getting posted a few places for friends first, then eventually the public.  Hoping I don't have to deal with that.  It's been 7 years exactly, and still love the car.  But I'm almost 54 and not getting younger, and there are other cars I'd like to own while healthy enough to enjoy them.  Really hoping for a Lotus this year.  I put $9K or best offer, anything over $8K wins the day.

Bump for a great vehicle caretaker.  Alex is still loving your old MR2.  You can find lots of nice shots of it at the Taboggo Cars N Coffee on FB in Cincy.

Tell her I'll throw in some die cut vinyl of her choosing.  And wear my stormtrooper costume for a photo, if that sways her opinion.

I took turns chasing and getting chased by one of those at Grattan once.  The owner described it as a go cart, just floor it and steer.  It made cool noised and looked like a lot of fun.  I was in a 92 Mustang.

I know I'll miss it.  I still remember an SCCA track day at Mid Ohio and the old-timer's working the event telling me I was required to let them drive it one session.

And sold! To the gentleman that flew in from Minnesota and I met at the airport with a full tank of gas. Good luck @ERS and I hope you have as much fun with it as I did for 7 years.
