Default My last day EVER with 06 xB!

Welp, today 5 June, 2018 was the end of my beloved xB ownership. I bought it in Honolulu back in Oct, 2005 and since then it's been a lot of places..shipped it on a boat to S. Korea and drove it only 15K from 06-11 before shipping it back to Honolulu for 2 years. I then shipped it to L.A. and drove to Vegas, lived there for 2 years before driving across country to Cape Canaveral and then finally here in the Sarasota, FL area. I didn't have to use it as a daily driver so it only had 79K. A guy flew down from N.Y. to pick it up and drive it back today. Best car I ever owned, so easy to get in and out of, plenty of pep whether in city or high-way. The snub-nose made it so easy to see and the high ride plus all the windows made it a cinch to park forwards/backwards. This car was still in great shape until I got to Florida in 2015. The brutal hot weather and animal impacts took it's toll. I could have driven it a couple more years but a salvage 17 Civic Si (in very good shape) fell into my lap and I pulled the trigger. Yep, I turned to the dark side. Goodbye ole' xB, you were the best that ever was!

Sad day. I am parting with my beloved 2011 xB soon too. Going down to a 1 car family and wife does not drive stick -
