Here's the last picture I took of NoMercy on Saturday, as it's owner anyway.


I have sold the car to another member of the site. This decision was not an easy one, or a hasty one, just one I needed to make at some time soon to get some finances in order for the sake of my retirement and my daughter's college education. I was made a fair offer on the car and I have decided to take it. This will enable me to 1. Pay for my daughter's college for the next two years without going into hawk. 2. Not dip into my motorhome fund (and IRA's) which has been a 20 year dream of mine. Definately not an easy decision, but one made much easier due to WHO I am selling it to, and how easy he his to deal with regarding the transaction. A very few people know who the new owner is, and I will let him make the announcement when he wants, probably Friday when he picks up the car.
For the few of you that know, let the new owner make the annoucement. :)

And before anyone else says it, I know, I'm a dummy, but I feel like I'm doing the right thing.

I will continue to be active on the site and hope to see all of you just as much.

Joe

Joe, you made the right decision. One has to make the most prudent choices in life, and everyone has their idea of what priority's are important.

Good luck, and keep in touch!

Congrats Joe,

You can always build another vette. Maybe you will change your mind on the motor home or even try it first and then come back to a Z later. I would give mine up for the kids too! Best of luck and hope to meet you at the fest. Don

Joe, Your family is always more important than the Z. I would sell mine in a minute if I needed money for my children.

As I said Saturday, The Mod partys at your home were fantastic and I will miss the once a year gathering in Delran........ Best of Luck.......

Sometimes a guy has to do what he has to do. I've had the motorhome dream for sometime also. Can I ask what you've been looking at?

Damn...If i knew this car was up for sale, I would have paid damn near anything for it. Thats the sickest Vette ever. I fell in love with that ride the second I saw it on MTI's website a few years ago. Well, Good Move Joe makin the right decision and Good Luck to its new owner.
