Keep it until that mileage is 0..
My heart and Madam Santenay say keep it and there is a possibility we could use the car towards the second half of the year. My head says to save Madam Wendy being stuck with it and selling it to a dealer for next to nothing I should sell it to someone who would look after the car.
Thank you for all input, I will take your advice and keep it a bit longer.

I live in a picturesque island with a climate which permits me to drive it roof-down for most of the year and I want to sell it.

I have a depreciation-free, carefully-used classic car for high days and holidays and I want to sell it.

What you gonna do - invest in a new Kia Stinger and watch it fall out of bed over a couple of years?

I believe you may both be suffering from SAD. Get the roofs down & get some sunlight - that was rather bracing, yesterday...

I understand what you are saying. I don't want to sell it, it's because I am unable to drive it as much as I would like to and Madam Santenay having to sell it which would be a major problem for her. I would not be looking to replace the car, there is nothing to replace it with unless I won the lottery. Yes I am suffering from SAD, nothing that a month in the South of France wouldn't cure.

Hopefully September if I can get insurance.
I have got a couple of books with motorcycle rides so I am planning a few of those plus the Clun Run and the Mary Ann Evans day, so things to look forward too, just need the sun.

I feel a bit sun- (or wind-?) burned after the last couple of days!

Don't worry, with the new quarterly tax stuff, it won't be something you'll get used to
