It's been very nice being part of the V family, but I made a decision. I am building a huge garage and by selling the V, I had the money to make it the way I wanted it. Looking at it in the garage all cleaned up and knowing it will have a new owner this week is a bittersweet moment. I got what I wanted for it, so no disappointment feeling like I gave it away. Maybe sometime in the future a V coupe or wagon will be in my future. Garagemahol first!

Good luck.

You chased alot of gremlins.. Hopefully we will have them all figured out one day.

I will say, that car is near perfect and the next owner will love it. I think the final shimmy that I had is due to wonderful Eagle F1s that I don't think are as perfect as they should be. Other than that, everything else was cured. I'm sad to see it go, but the garage is becoming something of beauty. The other cars with have a nice home, and one day another V will grace my world.

Isn't this like the "Gift of the Magi?"

Actually, you're the envy of all the rest of us with that Garagemahol. Good luck!

Thank you, when I finish it I'll upload a pic of it. 60x25 with 12 ft ceilings. Should be done at the end of May.

Thank you, 2 lifts are going in, 4 ft up around the bays will be aluminum diamond plate. The tons of die cast cars and memorabilia . Of course landscaping to minimize the impact of its size.

Thank you, I waited 10 years for this. Since there is a precedent for one more car in the house. Something will show up sometime in the future to take the v's place.

It looks really nice. I'm sure it can't wait to have another V grace the garage with its presence.

As soon as the bills are clear, I will be back in the Caddy crowd again. In the meantime the other cars are going to get some attention.

What's the other cars?

I have an 87 Monte SS that is completely redone making about 420 hp out of an injected 355. Lowered with Baer brakes and a ford 9" rear, I'm building my 91 Corvette. Right now it's a solid 450 hp, but it's going to be between 570 and 580 when done. I also have a 65 Malibu SS that will get some dignity this year. I started going through it and it should be on the road again in a few months. I beat around in an 08 Mini Cooper, that is like a go-cart that returns 30+ mpg while being throgged. As I move into the garage, I'm going to bring all three to the point that I have wanted to get them to. After the smoke clears, one more will join the fleet again.

Never enough room :) the vette, monte , and Malibu will be the residents. I can fit the Mini through the double doors on the workshop side of the garage , but that side is for the toolboxes and tractors, so the mini gets parked along side the wife's van in the 2 car garage on the house.

I figure after the lift goes in, I can squeak one more inside. I'll have a hard time explaining another after that.
