Have you considered a GoFundMe to pave the road? I'll throw in some cash.

The right up on your journey home from NJ last year inspired me to do some longer distance travel in my Elise this past summer. I haven't gone cross country but maybe someday.

Glad you put some miles on it. Good luck with your sale

Lol at the go fund me!

This car makes me smile every time I see it, and more so when I drive it. My wife keeps telling me to keep it and just drive it down the fort road but I can't bring myself to do that. I'm going to be bummed to see it go, but I have to much love for it to beat it up.

I'll happily post specific photos if anyone wants to see anything.
