Goodbye

Well we sold the Cruzer and are moving to OK and starting a horse ranch with our son.
We had a load of fun with the car and were sad to see it go.
To all of the friends we have made here over the years we bid a fond farewell.

Thanks for all your input over the last few years Gene. Good luck in your new venture. Just because you've got rid of the SL doesn't stop you from dropping in from time to time.

Sorry to see you go. But a horse ranch sounds like fun as well. OK is a nice state. Janie is living in Tulsa half time for work and loves it there.

Good luck in your new venture. With luck you'll make a healthy profit and buy yourself an SLK next time..

As the others said, drop in and say hi from time to time.

Cheers!

Good luck Gene! Seems like you were not in Arizona that long. The horse ranch sounds exciting.

We just don't fit in with the clubhouse and drinks crowd we need to be more active ----- now all we have to do is sell this place and its off to OK.
Have put substantial down on property and purchased two horse's one will show in the futurity next Dec in OK the other is a mare that will drop a foal in Mar or April.
All are Amercian Quarter Horse's and with names longer than mine but we call them Shady and Dirt Wave. We now belong to the AQHA and the ARHA(Amercian Reining Horse Asoc.).
Dirt Wave will be at a trainer west of OK City for the next 11 months learning how to perform in the proper manner -- this cost more than leasing an SL --- we are risking it all on this venture if it goes south we will end up in a double wide but on a beautiful piece of land.

What with you and your Quarter Horses and K......Y........... in New Zealand with her Show Ponies, we seem to be getting a lot of additional horsepower round here

I forgot to ask in my first reply, how's Jo? - I hope her hip has recovered - please pass on my best regards.

Whoa, Gene! Have I got the right car for you!

NOT for the Country Club

When I'm done with it, perhaps I can send it your way.
