Milage is a definate factor in resale value. However, what is of most signifigance is total miles, not miles driven per year.

In my opinion, life is too short to be worried about not driving a car you love because of possibly losing a few bucks here or there.

Just take good care of the car, keep records of your maintinence, and your resale will be just fine.

Who cares about resale value. I got my Little Missy because I wanted her not because I hope someone else will want her sometime down the road. Now if you don't want her anymore and want something else to fit a need in your life that is another story. Reguardless of the reason I would hate to see you go Skybaby.

I'll put mine up around Oct 15th. Just about the same time I close down the pool.

We can go through withdraws together until spring!

Why don't you send her to the beautiful Gulf Coast for the winter. I promise to drive her every day so that she does not feel neglected.:D

plus a beater is better in the snow... you don;t worry about some idiot running into you so much... KEEP YOUR SKY!!!!

How many years are you planing to keep the Sky Skybaby? You've had her for 3 or 4 months and you are going to stop using her because you have 10K on her?

So you are going to get like 3 or 4 months a year out of a car you love? That sux. Enjoy your Sky.
