January 1, 2014

I received a call from Ben (the guy I bought the car from) & he asked me if I'd sell the car back to him.

What? No way! It only has 1,921 miles

We talked a few times over the next few days & I decided it would be cool if he got the car back.

I'll be hanging on to it until Sept. 1st but it will be back home in the fall.

If anyone would have suggested that I'd be selling the car 5 days ago I'd have told them they were crazy.

Congrats Ben.

Jim

THIS IS SUCH A NICE CAR! I THINK THERE ARE MORE THAN ONE PERSON WHO HAS SOLD THERE GMMG CAR ONLY TO WISH THEY HAD IT BACK SOMETIME LATER.

Jim that is a very cool thing you did for him! :clap: I can only imagine he is just tickled to get it back. I'm sure you will fill that spot in the garage with something else this fall...... C7 Z06 perhaps??? ;)
