Sold my...

Hey guys! With great thought and careful consideration I sold my S2000. Iíve had it since 2009 and loved every minute of it. Plus...working for Honda since 1974 my heart will always be with this amazing brand. But as with my 1975 Super Beetle which I sold after 14 years, it was time for a change. I picked up a brand new 2018 Mercedes-Benz SLC 300 in white...loaded with all of the extras. It doesnít drive the same but the mechanical hard top is something to be amazed with and it looks pretty cool too. The money I got for my S2000 helped with the transition to the MB. Who can say theyíve owned a Honda for ten years and made 10k...thanks Stewie. The good thing about this is I found a guy that is absolutely in love with the S2000 and wanted one when he turned 60. So, it made another persons dream come true. Love you guys and thanks for all of the amazing times and memories.

It's hard to let go. Hope the Benz treats you well and hope to still see you here!

What Cdn dollars did you end up getting Wayne. As I recall you were asking quite a bit.
I'm in Alberta and have been seeing the value increasing. Even saw one over $40K Cdn. which seems like a bit of a stretch.
I'm not thinking of selling out yet, but if it finances the next toy, who knows.

Hey Zig, I ended up dropping the price to 29K which I got. I was offered 15K off the Benz so I had to act fast.

Sounds reasonable and the quick turn over to get into the Benz makes sense. Enjoy the new ride.
How is the trunk space with the retractable hard top?

It’s actually not that bad. It cuts in half with the roof down but you could fit two carry on bags in there.
