Congrats in scoring the convertible, Alan!
But...too bad you did not offer your CHP for sale on the messageboard...or did I miss something?
Would have definately been interested...still some money burning in my pocket ;-)))
Good luck with the vert, glad to hear you made it home safely!
As the old saying goes, "A bird in the hand is worth more than two in the bush"
I didn't have the resources to just purchase the convertible. I have the money just not allocated for getting another car. I could have put the car out there and tried to squeeze another few thousand out of it but that could have taken days if not weeks with no guarantee that a sale would happen or I'd get much more, which leads to another favorite saying of mine, "Effort to gain", the gain may not have been worth the extra effort.
Any delay may have killed the other deal.
At the end of the day I am happy with the deal and I have a wad of cash leftover.
Great to hear you are happy with how things turned out for you, Alan!
Being happy/satisfied is priceless.
Guess you just wanted "a new toy" after these several years with you CHP and you like better that the vert still gets thumbs up but does not draw all that attention the CHP for sure did ("May I ask for a photo, Sir?!")
Have a safe ride and enjoy the wind in your hair!
