Saying goodbye...

Well, I decided I needed something a little more practical than a 2 seat roadster that has less cargo room than my fourth generation Corvette so I traded in the Redline last week when I by chance came across a somewhat rare vehicle that I always wanted.

In the next couple of weeks after the holidays settle down I'll be putting up for sale some items I have from the Sky. I have a clean set of Moda MD5 wheels and 15,000 mile Kuhmo Ecstasa Platinum LX tires that are still like new, along with a pair of extra MD5 wheels still in the boxes as insurance against not being able to replace a damaged wheel in the future. I also have a set of brand new Helm shop manuals, still in the sealed box I'll be getting rid of as well.

I wanted to say thank you to all the great posters on here who provide great information on these vehicles, from maintenance and opinions to repairs and troubleshooting. You're truly a great resource.

As for the replacement vehicle, practical is in the eye of the beholder, as I ended up with much more vehicle but took about a 30% hit in fuel economy with the replacement, a 2007 Cadillac STS-V. 469 supercharged HP from a smaller version of the V8 Northstar engine, a six speed automatic transmission, and all the bells and whistles that Cadillac provides. She sure is a fun and comfortable car to drive.

Those STS-V's are pretty darn nice too though! Definitely a different beast.

Cheers!
