Farewell to my SportX brothers...

Well today was something I had been dreading for a while now, the day when I would have to say good-bye to my Sportcross.

I loved going out and driving it every day, it never left me stranded, and never had a problem taking anything I threw its way (12+ bags of mulch, Christmas tree, various plants, assorted lengths of building supplies...)

I never tired of the looks I got, the various people exclaiming "I never knew they made a wagon", "What kind of car is that?", "Where did you find one?".

But, to make room for the new wagon (because what else can a SportX owner go to?) it had to go. On the plus side, its going to a co-worker who also has a V (6spd manual sedan) so I will get to see it from time to time, who knows, he may even let me drive it again!

Specs on the new wagon - 1 of 447, 2011 CTS-V, 351 miles (no, I'm not missing any digits), 556hp from a supercharged V8, Recaro seats.

Good luck to all my former sportcross brothers and be proud of what you have!

Congrats on the sale.
May your miles in the caddy be as comfortable and pain free.

Hey mkiiina, just noticed you are not too far away in Plano. I was wondering if your SportX still had Tonneau cover for the cargo area? If so, do you think the co-worker you sold it to would be interested in selling it?

It did have the cover. Not sure he'd be looking to sell it but I can ask and will let you know.

You'll always remember it with a positive outcome. Congrats on the v I've always had a soft spot for those.
