Default Farewell to my Red Spyder

Long live my Silver Spyder! Had to change my avatar to reflect the fact that I no longer am the owner of Vin...2904, I will miss that car, but not too much

We did the SD drive a while back - I recognize the red spats on the side (or did you purchase the car recently and I drove with perhaps the old owner?)

Congrats on the ride, she's a beauty. Enjoy in good health!

Andrew! Parting is such sweet sorrow - - - - usually! LOL I know you had a few cross-country adventures in that car and encountered some obstacles (in the road) along the way. Lots of great stories behind that car that I'm sure you'll treasure, and perhaps a few you might want to forget. But when you have a fallback Spyder, LIFE IS GOOD

Hope your summer is going great!

Read the first sentence of his post. Or look at his avatar.

Or did this guy already have two? If so, I hate him.

Thanks everyone for the comments. Yes I had two, which is why I wasn't too unhappy parting with one.
I can attest to the wear and tear and the stories around vin #2904 - they were mostly posted here on the forum, it was a Made to Order Car and it's definitely seen the country and many states between NY and CA. I would buy my red Spyder back in a second, if I didn't already have one, but I'm looking forward to either a Ferrari or a SPEEDSTER. I'm hoping for Speedster to go with my Spyder. Please Porsche Gods!?

Riverside Porsche AKA Walter's happily bought my car, and I believe they are going to certify it and resell. Should be a steal imho.

Again, Thanks for the comments and I look forward to our next spyder get together. BTW, I'm moving to DT Riverside and I would love to have you guys over after a drive sometime.

PS the picture is from NOV 2015 when I first picked up my car from the old Manhattan Motorcars (before there was a Porsche Manhattan). I don't look like that anymore lol.

Best,
Andrew

LOL NO need for any Hating on a Porsche Forum. We are all too lucky and there is no need to be jealous.

just a love letter to my former Red Beauty conceived here on this forum with the help of the database and our conversations here.

Congrats and condolences Andrew. Be sure to let us know when the replacement shows up (hopefully a Speedster!)

(yes, I'm still a lurker...)

Best,

Would be a great combo. I pick up my 488 spider tomorrow, but I'm also praying to the Porsche gods for a Speedster.

I was dead set on picking up my 488 Spider this coming weekend, but then I checked my bank account and pushed the date back a few decades.

Since the out the door price on a 1/24 is under $200 I'm leaning this way...
