Swinglo Is Sans Lotus

Well, it's official. My car has officially been sold. Fitting that the orange car was sold on Halloween!

It's off to a great new owner who will treat her right. I believe he's registered on the forum as EZ PZ. The car will be going to Raleigh, NC where, like a dog on a farm, it can run freely year round!

DocJay and other Raleigh/NC peeps - take good care of him and the car and show him how to truly enjoy on twisties and spirited drives!

He's driving cross country to bring the car back. Safety and good luck!

I'll still be around. My plan is to refill the barn in late Spring after another round of Polar Vortex. Perhaps a KG or Ice White Exige.....hmmm.

Sorry that you're now without a car, but family comes first. It's not like you'd drive it during the winter anyways

Good to hear it's off to a good home. Kudos again for taking care of things for the family.

Good luck come spring. Remember there are lots of passenger seats open, including mine, come spring until you fill the garage again.

SwingLo,

Even if you are driving a Corolla now, please stay on the forum. You add a lot of humor.

Hey, it's not so bad. Most of us will be storing the cars in the next couple of weeks as you would have. Gotta take care of family first. Hopefully you will have a Lotus in the garage for next driving season.

I can put you in line for my Exige. You can be right in FRONT of Lowtush. It's about time for him to text me again asking if I want to let it go. He knows the answer.

Jeff ... Wishing you the best on both family and hopefully, a fun search for new toy to fill the garage.
