Default Do you have a number?

I got to thinking after reading the threads about S2k valuations is there a number that would get me to sell my S. I realize the talk of a 6 figure S is limited to the CR but say the regular s became a 100k car would I sell. I honestly don’t know I always said I wouldn’t because I couldn’t repeat the experience of being the only owner of the car and I knew the care I have given it over the last,wow, 16 years but it is a lot of money.
How about you all what price if any would it take for you to part with your S?

No price...I'm going to be buried in it. Well, maybe not, but the only way I'm selling is if I can no longer get in and out of it to drive.

I have a price for mine, and I have a tentative buyer as well. No rush to sell it though, and the buyer is well aware of that.

I should also say my nephew wants it, so TBD what I do.

Nope. While it has held it's value better than our other cars, it's still a 14 year old car with 106K on the odometer. It would not command the $ of the low mileage ones, so we will continue to enjoy it.

I feel no need to sell it. I use it every summer as my daily driver and I use it in the spring and fall as the weekend, good weather car. I think I'm around 53K on the odometer. Yeah, if the value went up enough that I could buy a new or nearly new Boxster, I might consider it. But the Boxster is a four cylinder now, so maybe not. As I get older there may come a time that I let it go and price won't be as important as who gets it.

I don't think I'd sell mine because it's too much fun to drive. Right now my 2007 needs a new top and rear tires but I've driven in twice in the last two months in Colorado. I found out that summer tires don't like frozen roads, hence the need for new rear tires. It's also the third one I bought, my favorite color they come in and the only one I bought used, out of three, since they were no longer in production when I bought this one. It's been fixed and painted after a hail storm in Colorado Springs.

I'll probably never be able to afford to replace it with something similar. Somebody would have to give me ridiculous money so I could buy something equal to or better.

Done. You all know which one of these two I kept.

I love that MG but never had one. It's my favorite color combo and the one I looked for in an SL550. Wound up with white and tan, close second.
Our S2000 is long gone as well.
