    Not me! I sold my 97 GH to a fellow I meet on another forum. The only problem was ,he lived 1200 miles away. He insisted that he wanted it. So, he and his partner drove from Minnesota to my house in Delaware. He said that he couldn't find another mower like I was selling anywhere else. Thats got to make for a long weekend!

    This is kind of funny to me because I am selling one of my cars to a guy from Minnesota. He and his brother are driving to Texas to pick it up right now. The funny thing is it is not a rare car or anything, its just a '97 eclipse gst. I guess they don't have much around them.

    To save how much is worth 1-2-3 days of travel. Got to cost $ for food, lodging, and especially gas.
