Great news (for me because I hate car sales) - dude's funds cleared the bank this afternoon and he's got the transport guys coming ASAP. I'm rather happy that this guy was so chill - like, easiest process in the world.

Really? Was her sling in the calendar? Good for her. Very nice young lady.

Here is hoping her sling doesn't sell, so that we could ride again. Fun times.

Dude... no no.... not 'in the calendar' .... I'm in the calendar TWICE. yep - basically, I have a security detail now.

Heather, Super news. I'll pm you with all info later today and please do share.
Got your message! I've already told Jerry (buyer) to expect your info sent up with the Sling. Now look - Indiana hoarding all the orange ones :hilarious::hilarious::hilarious:

Yeah - hot d*mn, that Vitamin D got people callin' all day! It's almost amazing! You better believe I'm going to whore out said Viper. I'm going to park it right in the middle of all the Slingshots at Katie's - just so people will ask "whaaaa?"

Well - that's the thing. I did a "price is firm" so the buyer and I took care of payment outside of ebay. That said, we sold Rob's last Viper through bidding and yes - mucho rape on the % of the sales price... I think there was a cap, but still - not how I enjoy spending money.

* Note - I'd recommend not doing "price is firm" sales if I could redo it. Everyone "wants a deal" and people can't seem to handle the "don't call me with an offer" concept - they all made offers.

Ha! you want em?! You can have them! They're just cut poster board, but you can use it as a template if you wanna recreate it - I put them on in October and they've stayed perfect for what... 6 months? I'm impressed.

Aged grape liquid? Trust that I will not disappoint. No freakin' way.

Quite pleased with our agreement.

We can cover the finer details of brushing and flossing shark teeth over a glass of knock your socks off. Yummylicious aged grape liquid.

The funny thing is you can park a $100k Viper in the middle of Slingshots and people will think, "wannabe." You can park a $20k Slingshot in the middle of $100k cars at a car show (without entering the show and people say, "Man that's cool! What is that???"

:wacky:

(Accidentally found that out and was invited in just so people would stop blocking the parking lot area and attend the show of ~60 cars. Oops. Stayed 3 hours, as my date and I looked at the cars people followed us around asking Slingshot questions. That was 2015, but for the few times I've been out this year--nothing changed.)

Last year took the Slingshot to the South Bend car show in Mar and was the only none Camaro (all tricked out) in the room and I had more interest...used the Slingshot to promote the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation "Ride for Kids".

Quite true. I hang with a classic British car club. Most of the cars are beautiful, at least to me. Random folks ignore them, and stop to ask about my sling.

Harleys swarm near me from time to time. If I stop by, the Harleys become invisible. Everyone stops to talk to me.

Ferrari driving dude stop to say hi. Big thumbs up. His rims probably cost more than my ride. Slut, err woman of questionable morals who would give it up all day and all night to hang with money, in the passenger seat smiled, and smiled, and smiled at me.
