View Full Version : Ladies and Gentlemen... Jason Marsh has left the building

As of June 1st I'm no longer an SC'er. I've sold my long time pride and joy red 93 SC this week. I got a little teary eyed driving it that last mile and thinking about all the good and bad times I had with it. Thinking about all the blood, sweat, and tears I poured into it, not to mention the thousands of manhours I put in too. As a daily driver my SC has seen tons of miles (170k) It's seen many, MANY mods over the years and that all has taken the ultimate toll on it's everyday driveability.

With my schedule being packed full running 2 businesses, doing my day job, teaching and training in Taekwondo, and trying to have some sort of a social life, I just dont have the time to constantly be working on a car that I can't even rely on to get me to the next state and back. It was getting to the point where I was fixing something literally EVERY WEEK! I will still pop in from time to time and I will still be happy to sell new headlights to anyone who wants to buy them from me.

I've made lots of cool friends here over the years and some people I've met here have gone on to become really good friends even after they lost interest in SC's and sold them. I'm sure I'll miss this place too much and have to return eventually, but for now I'm outta here. Wish me well, and good luck to you all. Here's one last shot of the bird, I pray she gets a good home with the new owner.

jason ,
i have enjoyed talking with you and hanging out on the internet the last several years
there's no doubt that you have the hot rod disease and will be packing a new ride soon
you've always been a good friend and willing to help out anyone with just about any problem they may have had
you will be missed, the sccoa light is going to be a little dimmer without you around
good luck with all your future endeavors
your friend ,chuck

I'm sure you told the new owner about SCCoA and that they are getting a hard to find limited production sport coupe. Hope to see your bird around here with a new owner, hopefully an enthusiast. I didn't realize you had so many miles on it, wow. My 90 has 182k and now blew the original head gaskets. Its been a good car, will be better when I fix it up. Best of luck to you. If I get that bike (GSX-R 1000) I'll have to get in touch with you about some of the internet clubs for them. Take care.

your friend,

Scott Long

Jason. I wish you well. Still would be great to meet you. You were great when we "talked" and I hope one day to at least say hi. Best of luck to you in whatever endeavors you undertake. Be well. My best to you and your family.

Just say it aint so, Jason, [but i know it is].

You & Dan were the first SC guys i met, and you have been a lot of help with my SCs, and remain a good bud. My bet is you'll be back in an SC sooner or later.

It's been fun having a good OKC core group, helping host the Nationals and all. OK SCers definitely will be diminished without your enthusiasm and natural leadership.

Will & Joey gone, now Jason, Dan's car up for sale; Steve not online much, might get kinda lonesome around here. :(

Lance, Steve, Dan, Chris Ray, let's go do Mid America Shelby Meet.

Kurt knows me too well. I will be back in an SC eventually, but it will not be a daily driver.

Thanks to all of you for the nice comments, I have enjoyed meeting lots of you in person and online and will still drop in on some events, especially those wild and crazy SW meets.

Also to the OKC guys, I'm not going anywhere so we can still get together. You all know I'm still the resident expert on SC's in Oklahoma :) In fact, Steve and I are meeting for Chinese food on Sunday, maybe you should all meet. Email me: [email protected]

Jason, you have been a great asset to the SC community and even though you won't be an owner, these birds will always be in your soul. Although we never met, I know from my dealings with you that you are a man of character. Best of luck in all your future endeavors and try to "stop by" the BBS's from time to time.

Godspeed......

We will all really miss you on this BBS. Darn, and I'm just about to get my SC back together too. I'll still probably be in need of some misc parts as I get my engine back from Bob Johnson in two weeks.

Well, I knew you were getting tired of fixing it all the time (aren't we all). You were one of the first guys I met on this board and helped me out a bunch with leads on things and such. I am sure we'll see you around. Have fun driving a reliable car.

We're going to miss ya, Jason. You're one of the most knowledgeable and helpful guys around. I'm sure most of us have benefited from your good advice and friendship. Glad we finally got to meet. Keep in touch.

Jason...
If I knew how i'd put a picture of a flag at half mast. I didn't really know you, but I've read enough of your posts to know that you are really one the "good guys" around here. Today is an unfortunate day for SC owners, except for the guy that bought your baby.

Maybe since your so busy making money you can get one of those SC mustangs coming out. Come around once in a while and rile up the new guys with the wealth of SC info and stories you have.

later,
Jim K
