    8 years 11 months ago...

    I bought my '04 V. I've had a V in my possession, in some way, ever since. No more.

    The '09 sold today. Contact was made through the forums. I'll wait to see if he announces the purchase...

    I assume that means you would pass on any invites to Monticello in the future.....

    Now what? Are you going to put all your $$ into your house?

    Nothing imminent planned. Getting work figured out. Maybe a cheap fun car for a year. Maybe another V2 down the road. Maybe another V1. Not sure at all.

    Good luck! Maybe an ATS-V or V3 in the future. I miss my V1. Terrible decision to sell it.

    I find myself searching for a V1 every now and then with the exact same mods as mine...if I found one I bet I'd buy it.

    Sorry to hear you've sold it Jim but at least you've had the pleasure for 8 years!

    (you'll be back)

    While the V2 is better in just about every way, the V2 gets a bit too refined. The V1 is more visceral. It is also more tossable on the track/autocross...

    I recall that you had made the same comment when you first bought your V2. I guess it never quite won you over. For me, the V1 was a great car and a loud announcement that GM could still make hotrods with metal bodies. The V2 was an exclamation point on that statement, along with "and we can make them as good as anybody."

    I don't miss my V1, but I have a mustang GT for when I want to get visceral (in a slower and poor handling sort of way).

    Either you'll be back, or you'll figure out how to get 500 rwhp on the Town Car.....
