I was at the local fast food place when an old couple (65-85?) asked me about my car. As we talked, the guy offered me 20g's. That was a more than fair offer, but I'm not selling.

I hopped on the freeway, and I get a thumbs up from a young passing motorist.

$20k!? You could have purchased another one with very low mileage. They're all over the place down here in Florida.. But, I can understand not wanting to sell what you have. I mean - you can't get much better than that.. Still, you could have bought another one in equal condition and did some crazy performance modifications.

Very cool to get those compliments, though. These cars are unique enough to attract that kind of attention - especially in black...

I think you guys are missing the point here.

HRS's car is already paid for. That, by itself, makes it a great car. :lildevil:

Second, HRS knows his car. Buying another used car to replace his current car is a crapshoot. Better to stay with what he already knows.

$20K may be a good down payment on a new STS, but then you still have another $30K in payments (see above) PLUS as nice as the 2005 STS maybe be, in my opinion it is never a good idea to buy the first year model of any new car line.

Finally, there is the pleasure of driving a car that still gets admiring looks.

Good for you HRS....

What are the chances that the guy had 20k on the spot ( or in a short period of time for that matter ) even if HRS would have said deal? Guy was more than likely talking out the side of his head...

I felt it was just a feeler and not a bonafide offer. Had he insisted on wanting to buy the car, I might have thought about it longer. ;)

It certainly made me put more pride into my ride.

And your right on with the points! :thumbsup:
