Bittersweet goodbye to a TRULY special car

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Inherited a 1995 540i M-sport from my dad. 59k miles, ALMOST cherry condition, but gotta say goodbye. Now, I'm selling it - already have a buyer, working out delivery/pickup details, but this is TRULY a special car and when it leaves, so goes a little bit of dad, a truly special man who I miss more than I can express. But I will use the proceeds well, and I know it is going to a good home.

Anyhow, don't know why I'm posting this. Maybe a little catharsis. To you young kids out there - enjoy the time you have with your father. Find some common ground and treasure every second of it. The years I wasted as a teen hating my father were just that - a waste. But maybe it helped me appreciate the good years all that much more. He died in a car accident.

Life it short, kids. drive safe unless you're on a track. in which case, drive it like you stole it.

Well said my friend. When I was a teen, I thought I was smarter than my father and couldn't wait to get away from him. Now that I'm a lot older, I wish I had spent the time to listen to him and learn the things he was trying to teach me. I'm sorry to hear about your father, but I'm here for you.

Good Luck with your sale and keep your chin up.

Regards
