Default O.G(ee),,,,,it has finally happened!! Sold my 92

Well,, after all of these years, I have probably made the hardest decision that I have had to make in a long time. this past weekend, I FINALLY let my prized "baby" go to a new owner. I have had the car for about 8 years now, and the time to part has finally come. With me wanting something a little newer, as well as me losing patience for the pains of an aging car I finally decided to sell it. I have NOT picked up anything new, as of yet, and since money is limited and since I will have to RE-learn how to live with a car payment again, for the time being it probably WON'T be a Lexus. Tho I still have strong love for the brand, right now I will probably just get a lil something to get back and forth with, until I can better my transportation situation (get what I want..); but for the time being am car-less. Doesn't bother me much since I spend 90% of my time driving cross country as a trucker (hence the screen name). I will STILL be active here on the boards as a moderator, and will continue to help out/answer any questions that I can. Bottom line,,,,,yall ain't getting rid of me that easily.

These are officially the last shots of my car as it was being loaded by a friend for transport. Moment of silence please,,,,,,,(lol!!)

That is tough to say bye-bye. In good hands going to a friend who will carry on the duty.
Time for everything so we'll be keeping an eye out for your next find.

Come on, give us a hint at what you would like.

The guy climbing out the window is not the new owner, he is a friend who owns the pull truck, also a CL member here over in the SC forum. It was sold on Craigslist, and I wanted it out of town so I would never run into it and get sellers remorse. Reason for window climb is b/c you literally cant open the door when it is on the trailer. I honestly havent even started to car shop yet. Have always wanted an 05+ LS430UL, but my pockets aint supporting that just yet. Working on some other priorities.

Sorry that you sold your car. I hate that feeling.

Lol,,thanks guys. Yeah I hated to let her go but it was time since I wanted to move on. "The grill is aftermarket by Erebuni, the headlights are JDM 1 piece headlight(imported in), the eyelids are Junction Produce. Pretty hard to find and are kinda rare to find now. I have had mine since 06, when my car was still 2 tone, Had to have them imported in from Japan. You MAY find a pair floating about here in the forums from time to time, but they were not overly popular. Lots of peeps now just make a pair using vinyl overlay. Lots more budget minded that way. This pic is from back in 06, and marked my intro here to CL. Notice the stock grill and headlights are still in place.

Man I don't know. Mine is a total money pit and a headache in more ways than I anticipated. At this point in my life, I couldn't even imagine letting mine go. Even if I was offered more than I put into it.
