Perhaps the saddest day of my life; in the past couple years anyway.

    I'm pretty upset...going to be a HEAVY drinkin' night...

    I sold the Miata today...

    http://www.d-mphotos.com/images/93miata/mx5bye.wmv

    I simply 'had' to sell it...but it hurts - in that car I learned a couple things:

    1) It's possible for two adults to 'do-it' in a miata
    2) I learned to be faster by driving better, not by having more HP

    Any of y'all develop nearly creepy attachments to cars? Anyone esle become such a big puss when they sell said cars? :(

    I didn't 'sell' my car, my parents took it away. :cry: I got it for my 16th birthday then proceeded to skip school, a lot. 1969 Mustang Mach 351. Very cool and waaaayyyy too much car for a 16 year old. Got into my first accident the day I got it.

    I still have a hankering for a Mustang, but now I want a convertible. Makes sense in Chicago. :eek:

    I hope you left that detail out when describing the car to the new owner. :ssex:

    My first car was a 1979 Chevy 1/2 ton pickup, with a 350 V8 and a huge chrome Chevy bowtie. Somewhere along the way (I'm blaming my sister, since she was driving it at the time) the steering differential fell off the frame and the wheel froze. It would have cost me over $1000 to fix it, so I donated it to a local tech institute. I shed a couple of tears the night before I had to get rid of it.

    I've never had another car I was emotionally attached to.

    My condolences to you Darin. I had the same feeling whn I parted with my mustang, but it was getting too expensive to keep repairing. :(
