I pulled the trigger and let mine go this January along with the Sl500.
5 vehicles was creating storage problems and i got a bad case of lust for the AMG-GT-S which is now in the garage.
The temps are finally warm today so I might actually get to drive it a little.

Well, if we get close to that six figure I might consider letting the LBP go but until then NO!

To answer the original question, I'd think about $30K right now. $40K and it would be gone.

I had a 1972 MGB that I sold in 1976 and regretted it since. I had a 1952 MG-TD that I sold in 1983 when my parents sold their house and I lost my parking spot. Needless to say, I've regretted it since. With that in mind, it's hard for me to come up with a realistic number that would get me to sell either my S2000 or my current 1952 MG-TD.

I don't put many miles on my S2000, less than 1,000 per year and now after 16 years I only have 40,000 miles on it. It's in great condition and all stock (except for the radio) so I could probably get a good price for it, but I know if I sold it I'd regret it the rest of my life.

I do, but it is about 5x what the car is worth.

It is a strange thing, the S2000 has been my favorite car most of my life (I'm not quite vintage) and now that I have one & have modified it almost exactly to my tastes, I'm just at a point in my life where cars are not the end all be all they once were.

Especially as my preferences for the way of life I enjoy most revolve around living/working situations in which a car is not only not necessary but actively inconvenient.

The beauty of this thought is in its simplicity...

Since I've only put 1,997 miles on this most supreme "driver's" car, there is only one condition under which I would sell my Indy Yellow AP1: I had another S in the driveway or keys in hand after purchase of another S.

I LOVE to drive. This is the car, there is ONLY one other car: The first gen NSX...

Looks like we are about to have to let ours go. I just posted about it in the main forum. Just got the estimate from the perpetrator’s insurance...over $10k. So it’s likely to be totaled.

Thw he good news is my wife was completely safe. The SUV that hit her went on to hit a curb and flipped.
