Farewell to the S2000

This morning I handed over all official documents, key and the vehicle to its new owner, a man who happens to be the branch manager of Nissan in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. He landed at Miri airport around 10:40am so we (myself and 4 other friends) greeted him there. My husband is currently overseas so he could not do the handover himself. If you see the car more often in the Land Below the Wind, don’t be surprised ya.

Attachment to material possessions is never a good thing, I know, but for now, allow me to express my Good-byes in the most unsentimental way possible. Although it is really no big deal, being a sentimental soul that I am, I wanted to cry. Hubby assures me that we still have a ‘backless’ car; the Ranger’s back portion is topless, he joked.

My farewell speech? Don’t worry, I won’t be dramatic.

“Farewell S2000, may you be safe and sound in the hands of your new owner. It had been quite a fun and magical experience riding in you, partly because the driver is the love of my life. Before, I had plans to change your registration number if we were to keep you, because in my humble opinion a lovely car like you deserves pretty and auspicious numbers to adorn you with. Then again, there is no need for that as you are not much of use to us anymore, thus my husband decides to let you go. Our car porch feels less cramped now, and we have a new muse. This post is dedicated to you. Thank you and good bye.”

Honda S2000 key

Started the engine of the S2000 for one last time this morning…

starting the engine of the S2000 one last time before handing it to the new owner

The new owner looks kind of young but from the copy of his identity card (which he handed to me along with other relevant documents), I noticed that he’s only 5 days older than my husband. My husband’s good friend Roger helped me to drive the car out of my house, to the airport and also briefly took the new owner for a ride. Prior to this, the new owner (Nicholas) had never seen or inspected the car in person. We have never met before, only talked on the phone but he trusts us very much that he settled full payment for the car one day before he arrived in Miri. Well, he made the right choice to trust his instincts on that matter as we are truly trustworthy people when it comes to making this kind of deal. Thank you so much for the trust you have given us, Nicholas. We won’t disappoint you.

Seen here Roger was about to take Nicholas for a short ride:

I know I should’ve cropped out my picture above and let him have all the glory, but I like to photo-bomb pictures, you know… Haha, sorry about that, Nicholas. Alright, here’s one with me cropped out of the way:

All the pictures in this post were taken using my camera, of course, you know what that means; I guess I have the right to photo-bomb them, haha. Thanks to Roger for helping me captured the two photos above. My endless gratitude to Roger, Elaine, Roger’s younger brother and Richard for accompanying me during the handover session.

Seen below, the car journeying out of my housing area, ready to meet its new owner at Miri airport:
