To all my friends here on the "Z"...

It is with sadness and mixed emotion that I made the decision to sell my
treasured baby (2009 with 6k miles) and noted that the first person to
look at the car gave me my price and immediately purchased it.

Due to health problems in the immediate family and my impending 2nd.
and permanent retirement, I must liquidate assets and address some
important financial issues. All those who are close to or have recently
retired know what I am talking about.

I wish to say that my experience here on the ForumZ has been positive and
have met some great and supportive people, which in itself is also something
that I will also truly miss. I hope to keep my Challenger Tips site up as long as
possible for I know that there are many folks who use and can appreciate the
wealth of collected information there for all to use.

Well, someone just got a helluva great Challenger. You my friend have been very instrumental in the development of this website with your robust Challenger tips throughout the past 6 years. I'm sorry to hear about you selling your car. You are doing what you need to do, plain and simple and I respect the hell out of you for it. May God Bless your Family. - TikiMan

Well Marv, all good things must come to an end. It did for me....twice! LOL!!! :D

But anyway, make sure you stick around on the forum. We love your posts of insightful articles and opinions just as much as your Challenger info.

I still say that you should put your name back in the running for M.O.T.M. !!! You truly deserve it my friend!!!! :smileup:

Wow, I didn't expect to see this. Marv, I know that you had to think long and hard about doing this and it was not done lightly. However, I also glad you were able to get what you wanted for your what I can no doubt believe was a top rate Challenger. Whoever got that Challenger definately got a PRIZE!

Hope to see you around here as much as you can. No value your posts and refer to the Challenger Tips at least once a week as well as refer members to them for problems. Take Care!

Marv, I really can't add much more that hasn't already been expressed. I didn't realize that you hosted the "tips" site, but it's a great resource and has been invaluable to me and scores of other Challenger owners, both here on the Z and other sites as well.

Best of luck to you, and I hope you continue to be a regular here on the Z. It because of members like you that I joined in the first place! :smileup:

Sorry to hear this Marv, you have been a great asset here and to the Challenger community in general. I hope that you do choose to stick around and add to the community as time permits. Perhaps things will change in the future and allow you to once again have a Challenger or some other dream car of your choice. Hang in there and best of luck to you and your family.

This is a sad post Marv!! I for one truly appreciate all you have contributed to the Z. You have been a wealth of information and were always a 'go to' guy for the technical side of things. I hope you can stop in every now & then to share your insight and humor!

we've never met Marv but I've always enjoyed your posts here and the Challenger Tips has been extremely helpful to say the least.

sorry to hear you had to sell your car, that's never an easy decision to make but family comes first.

hope you stick around the Z though, car or not, once you're part of this family, you are in for life.

Hate to hear that you had to sell your challenger, but I fully understand when life throws us a curve sometimes. I really hope you stay on the "Z" if for no other reason you can impart more of your wisdom and tips to help out some of us noobs. Good luck on your retirement.
