    well i guess the point is that unless this guy is a complete fraud and the pics are of someone elses car, i will follow through with my purchase. you talked to the guy, it seems on the up and up and with his other sales and 100% feedback i feel pretty damn good about it and dont want to waste your time. like i said you were going to be closer and the time was today not saturday. kind of changes things, also i had another long convo with him on the phone which we talked all kinds of stuff. he even want me to email pics of the new rims when i put them on the car. hes putting a car cover in the trunk for me and if hes that good than hes that good if this is a bad deal.

    If you feel comfortable with him then you should be fine. Congrats. I love the color. I really liked the black one that is on there right now starting at 10.9, that car is slick. I think the black on black would be a killer in the summer heat though. Congrats again. Cant wait to see it after you put the rims on it.

    well matching numbers engine and tranny were just a bonus, however a manual tranny was a guaranteed item and a m21 close ratio manual was a big bonus.

    so there in lied my issues when looking.

    i have a list of items planned. some as small as an old school hurst white shift knob, to cut outs with electric baffles and so on.

    Sounds like you are already happy with it, glad you got it. Seemed like a good deal for all the work that was done and he has documentation/photos/receipts. Looks very nice from the photos and he did seem like a good person when I talked with him.
    Good luck with it.

    Sorry I dropped out of sight for a bit.
    Looks like you two guys have everything under control.
    Very nice car!
    What kind of shipping arrangements are you working on?
    Anything I can do to help, let me know.
    Good luck,

    RR

    consoles are for sissies that don't like girls sitting next to them :happy:

    j/k

    finding a unaltered NO CONSOLE car is better than having a console car that Bertha the Butt sat on when she was trying to sit next to her b/f ... :cool:

    as he stated in the description, it is a far rarer car WITHOUT the console ...

    oh yeah, my 70 does not have a console either, maybe I am biased ... :)

    congrats, there is no way you could build a car for the money you paid for that

    paint jobs alone are now $10k ...

    fucking hagerty just killed my app. apparently they dont want me to drive it to work but once a month not once a week. even though i only drive my car to work otherwise my wife a truck person requires the surburban and actually has only riden in my car once in 15 years.

    the fact that i have a full shop and machine shop for mods at work has nothing to do with driving it to work. i was was driving to a mod shop it is ok.

    guess ill add it to my progressive.
