Said goodbye to my RS today. New owner drove it away. Two RS's and 7 years of ownership, learnings and enjoyment. This one had only done 6200klms and had never been driven in the rain, ever. My wife and I enjoyed Sunny day drives around the winery regions in it here in Victoria. Didn't think it would be such an emotional experience for me. I must be getting too old, lol. I'll lurk around here annoy people still. I've gotten used to the place.

Sold my NB RS2 last July. I might not have done it but I got an amazing offer right at the height of the car price curve. It did take a while to get used to not having it around, but like you I wasn’t getting any younger and it took a lot of convincing to get me into the garage to work on it. And after lusting for that car all the way back to the earliest Mk IIs that never made it here, I just didn’t enjoy it as much as I might have hoped. Got a 2023 Mini Cooper S convertible last fall and it’s got all the fun that I never quite got out of the Focus. But I’ll be hanging around too - recall all the stuff we used to do waiting for our cars back in mid-2016. Now I might actually have some wisdom to offer a new kid once in a while.I have one of these on order, the GTS. I always had a dream to build a Cobra replica some day but that ship has sailed for various reasons mainly to do with getting older and previous injuries makes serious physical work on cars etc harder. I can still do it but I pay for it for weeks, sometimes months.
So this will be my last "fun car" I think while I can still get into something like this, lol. Something for my wife and I to enjoy together in our retirement.
Someone said to me once "do it now while you still feel like doing it" it's sage advice.
