Sad Day... Civilier is Sold...
Sunday, December 07, 2008 2:44 PM
It was a sad day. I stood in my driveway and watched as the new owner of the Civilier drove away in the car that I, and many others, spent so much time working on. I know, there are plenty of people on this board now that don't even know this car. But this car, this board, and the great people I have met because of both have been such a big part of my life the past 8 years. I once again would like to thank everyone that had a hand (or two) in helping make this car what it was. More specifically, Todd Miller and Jeremy Harrington both did some wrenching with me at times. And thanks to Karo and Matt Teske who both helped me acquire parts and sponsors. Thanks to Jeff Bruce for spending his time cleaning the hell out of my car the day before the magazine photo shoot. All thanks to all those I can call my friends that have put up with me during the high times, but also the times I acted like a complete ass. And especially thanks to my wife, Christina, for putting up with this horrible addiction we all love so much.

Your car is legendary, I hope they realize what they bought! Beautiful shape too. Any reason why you got rid of it? Is your current DD in your profile, or is something new in the picture? Wow... I've been wrestling with the idea of getting rid of my Sunfire, which has been mine for 8 years as well & I seriously get emotional with the thought of saying good-bye. How hard was it?

Very nice car. An inspiration actually, it's everything I wish mine will be some day. I hope the new owner takes good care of it.

In all honesty... I was in tears cleaning it out in the garage yesterday. Kind of embarrassing, but true. It all just kind of hit me at once.

I'm a sap, I know.

I remember seeing it at the 04 Bash. I think you had not had the charge that long then. I think you had also just done the rear racing seats as well.

This Cavalier helped helped put J-bodys on the map, one of the first to get any real recognition. This car lead the way and helped shape the aftermarket, I hope it went to a good home.

Not soo sure about that. Not knocking anything he did with the car, but others put J's on the map before his.

Hate to hear it.
Another legend falls.
So what was the reasoning for you to sell it?
Your Civilier will always be emblazoned in you memories, for as long as you live. I'm sure they were good times, the notoriety of your work, and the joy of driving something that would be an inspiration to many of us that are J-body fans.
Good luck Ian.

I loved your car long before I had mine, it was just one of those cars you wanted yours to look like. Sad to see it go, but onto better things right?
Take care!

Loved it when I first saw and still do to this day. Congrats on building one of the most memorable cars on this site and J community.

To continue on what Darkstars said this car also proved you could cleanly mod with the said kit/spoiler/graphics trends at that time.

I recall a picture of this very car next to Gary Oxley's car. This car prevailed in that picture.

Very sad day indeed.....

You and that car have always been a HUGE inspiration. If I am ever in your area again I will give you a call. You are definitely one of the pioneer's of J-body modding...
