A few years ago I sold my Ruby Red Redline to a guy in California. Shipped it out from Michigan in September. Started looking for a coupe but didnt find what I wanted. A few months later, I noticed my Sky for sale again. I called the owner and bought it back for the same price Id sold it to him for. Shipped it back to Michigan and kept it for a few more years, until I finally got my coupe.

UPDATE: There was a bit of a delay, but the car is coming home tomorrow.

The car is really messy in the interior, it's going to need the biggest clean I've given a car before!
Beyond that a few small annoyances and some things repaired terribly that I'll need to work on.

Mechanically it seemed sound.. gear box feels a bit loose.
Going in Saturday for a safety inspection and a coolant flush.

I'll post some pictures shortly.

Was at the mechanics getting a safety today and a coolant flush. Didn't make it home before the snow hit haha.

Now, onto some work in the garage until spring! Just needs some cosmetic upkeep overall to get it back up to my standards. I'm going to go pull out the seats now for my interior detail

Be safe in that snow.

Having six speeds in my opinion is over rated. Too much time spent changing gears. :-)

When your upshifts only take 120 milliseconds, its no time at all.

I only use 6th when I am cruising for an extended period of time to drop the engine into a nice easy rpm, save gas and reduce the exhaust noise.
I can break 100mph in third so when I am having fun on the road I like to be in a gear that is 500 rpms into my torque curve and out of lag.

Having a 6th gear is nice for the times when you want it. Otherwise just dont use it

Our 2-3 and 3-4 are so far apart it would be nice if they threw in a 6th gear and shortened up the distance over the 2-3-4 gears. Even if 5th was left as is and 2-3-4 were tightened up it would be better.
