OMGHi2U So Long, My Beloved Piggy...

Hi VICers,

My GF and I are still a bit depressed to announce that our beloved Piggy was sold at VIC last weekend...

Piggy was sold to a nice VIC member FIDS (Jim). At the same time we are glad that Piggy found a VERY nice warm home in local.
We also glad that Piggy goes to new home with all the toys and parts as complete.

My GF and I would love to thank FIDS family one more time for their true appreciation and their promise in taking care Piggy in future.
FIDS will introduce his STi with new name tag soon on the board.

Anyhow, I want to take this opportunity to thank Piggy and our VIC community.

We had joy and fun to mod Piggy from stock to the current clean tasteful stand.
Piggy and VIC brought us a lot of good friends and priceless memories for the last 3 years, especially for your support during the BBT meet, VIC cruise etc.
You guys/gals have created a very unique and warm community for all subie lovers.

I will never forget the last moment when Piggy finally lost in my sight on the drive way,
and we will miss Piggy in VIC! We will try to drop by BBT or VIC meets still to visit everyone and subies.

Here are some final pics of Piggy we took and we'd like to share

Oh well at least it went to a local nice guy like FIDS.

Going for the 2011STi? or Nissan GT-R.

I know what you are feeling. I spontaneously traded in my car over the weekend (no longer in a subie) and am still a bit shocked at me doing so. I just hope the next owner treats it well as it's sitting at a dealership right now. I am also feeling down cuz I think my spontaneous decision cost me some much needed $$$$ I could have used towards my new loan. My car was similar to yours in appearance but lacked the performance upgrades you did. I'll still continue to lurk on here since I like nasioc and vic.

Congrats on the sale link. The car was mint, and I'm sure it will be taken care of well by the new owner. It is cool to see it go to one of our own.

But now you have a great opportunity to start something new. That's always a nice feeling, to have the freedom and money to change things up.

cheers!

Did you read that the last owner was a VIC member, or was that a little difficult for you.

Reading > You. Facepalm.

On a brighter note, Link, stop leaving us hanging! Are you sticking in the Subie family or moving onto something else?!

Piggy (to be named within our family yet) has already had its first wash and wax (soon followed by a thunderstorm ) and my girls are starting to fall in love with her. My eldest daughter was teary eyed when our blue subie drove away (to Puff) but she is quickly falling in love with this one.

She can be driven as a mild mannered car but push the gas a bit more and the beast is unleashed! She is a exciting to drive and I'm chewing at the bit to log some good corners with her.

Her legacy will live on and be seen at local meets.

Thanks again Link.
