    Bittersweet. Congrats on the sale, and good luck with the new truck. I don't think it's possible to leave this site.

    Congrats Ray and glad to know you are sticking around. I like hearing there are buyers out there that want even though you had the fire and a date with a telephone pole.

    My G8 had a date with a small oak back in 2013. no structural damage but new front end.

    I've been on the site for quite a long time. I'm still modding my G8. I got some lowering springs via UPS yesterday.

    Hello Ray,

    Thanks for all your advice over the years. It was a pleasure meeting you at the “Gone” meeting at Cordova several years ago. Thanks for being a common-sense Moderator on this web site. I hope you can chime in from time-to-time, as this site has a lot of go information for the second and third owners of these G8’s.

    Cheers,

    Keith

    I'll stick around Norm.
    Great choice on the Canyon I think you will like it! I'm loving my 2017 Canyon All-Terrain I bought in June. It is killing me to decide what to do with my beloved G8. I'm getting ready to store it for the next 6 months as I currently have now 3 vehicles until I get rid of my old Ford in Spring.

    The buyer finally posted a photo of the car in his field on Facebook. His family owns a farm. The car still looks good.
    Thanks for all the kind words.
    Rest in Peace Charlie!
