Congratulations, and I'm sorry for your loss. Now you're stuck with a Corvette and G8 GXP, poor kid.

Congrats on the sale, the memories will live on. Every time you start missing the GTO you can take that awesome Vette for a cruise.

Good deal man! I know you're relieved it's a done deal and although you will probably miss it from time to time, it was probably time to move on.

Look at about 1:40 in.

Sweet! I didn't know he was recording too. Too bad his sound is messed up. Looks like the C6 Z06 that I put a hurting on shows up in the video too

Here's the same sequence from my car:


Unfortunately my crappy camera kept shutting off due to the shaking.

It did seem like the boot had shrunk but no, he is considering buying the shifter from me now and is supposed to let me know. After driving the car he noticed the sloppiness of the factory shifter as compared to his 1979 Trans Am.


I'll let you know if he doesn't get back to me shortly. $300 on the shifter but labor is cheap

Completely stock except for pedders bushings, pedders shocks struts and springs, $18k

The car was immaculate. Walking away from it last night I felt really bad as it seriously still looked brand new. I handed the new owner the window sticker, original GTO specific sales brochure, Clear vinyl Pontiac folder from Pontiac that they sent to me for storing receipts and what not....the whole "shebang", even the car cover that Sarge had graciously passed onto me as he wanted it.

If I remember correctly I was the longest standing GTO owner going back to my original 2004 bought in September 2004.

Oh and you think Vette owners are bad, check out the red Vette owners that try to be even flashier. You've really gotta watch out for them.

To be fair, it sounds like he moved on from his GTO 2.5 years ago.

*raises hand*

Don't see it going anywhere for a while.

Then again, if I could get $18k it might be gone tomorrow and replaced with a used Z06

Next up is a 1998 New Holland LX665 turbo skid-steer with foam filled tires at 15% tread. Unit has about 1800 hours on it and is in very good condition. It has a smooth ~66" bucket and a toothed ~72" bucket. It does have auxilary hydraulic connection points for powered attachments.

Along with that is a 14k tandem axle dovetail 7'x20' utility trailer with flip up spring assisted extra heavy duty ramps. This trailer is a 2008 or 2009 and is an absolute BEAST. You can haul anything on this trailer and it doesn't even flinch. It currently has a 9000 lb WARN winch mounted with a Optima backup battery and pigtail to run to the truck for even more power. This is about the largest bumper pull trailer you can buy but is the easiest pulling trailer I have ever pulled.

If you are interested in either one or both please come see me or give me a call.

I know man but "Atlanta end of an era???" Maybe "David end of an era." And yes those Red Vette owners can be known as voids surrounded by a sphincter muscle. I might be proving that with each key stroke..... Damn I'm leaving to go eat lunch!!

OK. Sounds like you need to pick up a lottery ticket on the way home. Your luck karma is up right now.

I think I might have you by just a few weeks, but regardless it was a fun ride......not sure anymore how much longer mine will be around either. Priorities evolve and change.

That's cool, Axel's one of the few radio DJs that I can actually stand. Not sure I'd care to meet him in person though.

Probably because not many people are on it yet. I dunno, at least it's easily accessible from the Google homepage.
