    This is my 6,000th post.

    It's funny that when I was searching for a replacement car back in 2015 that I would wind up here. I think this forum might be more interesting than the car itself.

    Thanks everyone for this forum. Cheers!

    Congrats on your 6k milestone.

    And thanks for the chuckle:

    I think you might be right!

    I'm still watching for a Darin-priced Mirage. I said to Tim yesterday: I will probably get one next year. I'm not looking forward to another winter with the beater Metro. But I will tough it out one more time.

    And once you get one you'll want to protect it from winter road salt and drive a winter beater instead.

    At least you'd have a good backup car.

    Nooo!

    It's a slippery slope: You get a car you like, then you get another one just like it to use in the winter so you don't ruin the first one. And then...

    If I had gone for that $2000 rusty Mirage, I seriously would have had to get rid of one of my other cars.
