Selling Up And Heading Off

Recommended Posts

As quite a lot of you are aware, I am heading off to America shortly, so it is time to sell up and move on. And as the removal men are showing up tomorrow, I thought I'd say my farewells now. I got my CTS 4 years ago and I have loved owning and driving the car. There have been a core group of very helpful people here and I have honestly learnt a lot and hopefully I have provided some helpful information to others as well.

I think the saddest thing of all is that because I will be living in Manhattan, I won't actually be buying a car once I get there, so I will most likely end up renting some classic Americana at weekends to go for drives etc.

Peace out!

Strangely enough, you hadn't been included in that list of helpful and friendly people I mentioned earlier :P You might be pleased to know you are king of the sarcasm list though ;)

Once I get my permanent place sorted, I have issued an open invitation to people who know me. Also a lot of people are already asking me to set up an export business feeding the UK with 2ZZ-GE parts as they are far more popular state side than in the UK!

I work in IT for a very large company in London and I will be doing something similar but with more emphasis on management and design rather than developing :)

But I did write the drag league table from scratch myself and I am the only one who knows how to update it, so as a parting present I might make a 13 second run up the strip ;) That'll give everyone something to chase! :D

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
