    I know that these things shouldn't matter when one sells their car, but when I was almost about to put mine up for sale, that last thought kind of came up a lot. Of all the shit my car puts me through (and still puts me through lol), I found ways around them or fixed them. Learned a lot on that thing. Makes me wonder what someone else would've done if they didn't like it as much as me.

    Oh well. At the end of the day, nothing's really ours forever; just to hang on to for a while.
    I've dabbled in the platform for years.. since 03.
    Be happy!

    Officially/unofficially I am/will be the new owner. I'm excited to get it from Phil.

    For me this will be a daily driver as I build/put the msp together and attempt to take off the daily use of my truck. I have something like 55k miles on my 2016 Silverado, which isn't BAD... but it's not good for me. the body is showing the signs of highway use which pisses me off.

    Anyways, as for plans- I don't particularly have any for now, just drive. But i'll stick with this thread for updates and maintenance logs and how-to's.

    Took the car to work yesterday and to an appointment on my lunch break to enjoy it one last time. Damian will surely enjoy this thing. To me, it has the perfect bolt on mods to make it an enjoyable daily without sacrificing too much comfort. Pretty proud of the car and of myself as it's definitely in way better shape than when I purchased it a few years ago. Yeah it's old and isn't perfect and consumes a bit of oil but it really has never left me stranded. To finalize it all, I leave Damian with a wishlist of items that I would've eventually gotten to, lol.

    • Proper care and maintenance
    • Paint wiper arms
    • Paint/wrap/whatever rear wing
    • Replace interior carpet
    • Source and replace rear hatch carpet
    • Maybe some new pedals?
    • MSP seats?


    Cleaned and dusted the car again when I got home and took some goodbye photos.

    Good pics Phil..

    the funny thing is- I have msp seats in my garage for my msp, which I don't plan to use. I want speed3 seats for it. haha. so we can check that off the list.

    no thanks. you already know my deal. too rusty for my tastes to work on and not modding it anymore than it already came. i dont have this sort of time or patience. I don't need 4 needy whips. these things aren't as easy to deal with as proteges lol. the goal is to create time for my msp needs, not make more work to cock block myself
