It is certainly bittersweet, but I enjoyed my time with the car althought the constant thumbs up and honking horns from admirers does get old after a while. Or when someone is trying to take a pic while doing 70 MPH on the highway wth their car creeping over to the Speedster. That said, I will enjoy parking in the garage when there is a foot of snow on the ground.
