Low mileage is nice, but cars need to be driven and enjoyed. They're not living up to their potential just sitting in a showroom. My Z has 29,000 miles, I put about 10,000 on it. I know a lot of people with the same car in the same condition but unfortunately they've never bonded with theirs because they care too much about mileage, keeping it pristine, etc.

That TT is just begging for a new owner!

I'd do the same thing. The problem with iconic cars like that with low mileage is that people think they're worth more than they are and gouge the price accordingly. The real value is nowhere near $34k.

yeah, my point- what are your thoughts on 1997+ Mitsubishi 3000GTs VR4s?

Not a huge fan of them, and even less of a fan of the drivers. I've never met a friendly person that owns one. They've all got the ricer "I'm better than you" attitude. In that same class, I'd rather a 300ZX, WRX, or the old supra.

Like most Honda people- My city is invaded with them. 8/10 they try and race when I`m next to them or on a red light.

Same here. I live in a big city with three big colleges, so there's a ton of those Honda kids. Most of them try to race or show off. I don't drive my car much in the summer because of the heat, so whenever someone tries to take off from the lights I'll give them a little lead and then fly by on my motorcycle. It brings me joy thinking about how smug they must have felt when they were ahead and then the wave of disappointment as I passed them.
