    • I can't quite believe that I'm typing it, but I've decided that my MC will be heading for sale shortly. We're looking at making some big changes to our lifestyle and it's going to involve giving up the dream of owning my pride and joy for the last ten years unfortunately. Gulp.

        Thats a shame Tony , I wish you luck in whatever you decide to do and hope if you do sell that you will stick around as your help and input on the forum over the years has been greatly appreciated

          Haha you’ve read my motivation with your ‘IF’ I sell. Such a hard decision. In fact the decision to sell the house has been much, much easier

            Tony, sad news "IF" you are going to sell your car to enable the big change of lifestyle to be undertaken. Hang on as long as you can before you sell it, unless you have to definitely go down that route to complete the future change. Only you will know if that has be the solution. However the number of people who have had an MC sold it and regretted it and then wanted another one (I did it ). I was lucky enough to get an identical car an the bottom of the market 9 years ago, but who knows what the future holds.

            I have the same sentiments as Dave, "IF" you do sell, that you will stick around as your input to the Forum cannot be underestimated. Also you have taken some great photos over the past few years. There should be one of them in next months BMWCC Straight Six magazine in the Z3 section.

            • Well, the sale of my MC has been agreed and a deposit received so I guess that signifies the end of an era for me, having owned one of the greatest BMWs ever made in my opinion. I have loved every minute of driving this special little car.

              Knowing that it's going to a forum member reduces the blow of having to sell (a little!), but Christ I'll miss this thing so much. I just need to focus on future plans now to make sure I've not sold it for no reason.

              I'll let the new owner share their news once the car has been collected.

                  I'm absolutely gutted mate, but needs must.

                  I've got the old MG Midget that my dad left me a few years ago which needs some love again, so that's something that'll help but it's no MC that's for sure . RWD at least but just lacking around 2000cc and the kudos of the Coupe, haha

                  I was hoping I'd make it to Silverstone in the MC for one last show with the forum but can't unfortunately. I'm sure I'll catch up with some of you guys again at shows in the future though and will be around on here also.

                    Must’ve been such a difficult decision but I’m sure you’re selling for the right reasons Tony. Hopefully you’ll stick around on the forum and maybe we’ll see you at a car meet in the future. Really hope it all works out for you

                    • Only you could make the decision to sell as only you know what the future requirements are for the family. Very sad not be seeing you with the MC again, but I also have a love for old MGs as I had 1966 and 1974 MGB GTs. The 1966 one I wish I still had, a Black/Black leather with chrome wires (I'm sure it was a factory special as the colour and chrome wires weren't options at that time). So I'll gladly come and see you at a MG stand sometime/somewhere, just let us know. Keep in touch with the Forum if you can.
                      Very best of luck in your future endeavours.
