Re: memories (Christian finally speaks up)
I had an IM (instant message) session with Christian about this
and apologized to him for teasing him about the car.
I think everyone knows I love the car, and I even praised him
as being "more anal than I am" the other day :)
But to get this straight, I'm not selling the CQ, though I thought
about it for a couple of days after seeing the post for Jeff
Donnely's "dragon wagon". And I see nothing wrong with getting
a fair price for the car if I do ever sell it - ask Derek Daily
what's a fair price for a CQ (he paid quite a bit for his).
I paid 9k for Christian's car. Since then I've repaired the heating
system ($150 in parts and hours in labor), installed a full Alpine
system with amp and CD changer, Infinity speakers all around,
replaced a bad knock sensor, installed new V rated rubber, purchased
a set of snows and rims, installed rear Scorpion exhaust, installed
euro lights and harness, new V belts, etc etc.
It's worth 12k, trust me.
I know I don't have to defend myself but I wanted to put to
rest the idea that we have to sell cars for what we paid for them.
Yes, it's great to cut qlisters a deal on a car, and in fact I'm
trying to talk Christian into a cherry 87 CGT (so my wife can get
a Passat...) and my asking price would reflect that he gave me a
reasonable price on the CQ.
