O.K. all, thanks for the kind words and here is the story. I was indeed at Lime Rock over Labor Day weekend and placed a Bring a Trailer ad for the car shortly before that event. The response to that ad was "overwhelming" to say the least. By the time that weekend was finished and I was heading home on Labor Day Monday I had 4 people who I felt were truly very interested in the car (i.e. not just tire kickers). And then on Tuesday one of those four committed to wire transferring the funds for the full purchase amount. He is a purchaser from South America and it was to have been done on Wednesday but as of yet I have yet to see those funds hit my bank account. I have tried to be patient and trusting and have a good feeling as the purchaser has called me many times and is indeed a "car guy" and at this point it seems to be just a glitch in the funds transfer. But 3 other people have subsequently indicated that they also want the car (all domestic and 2 more or less relatively local to me) and are willing to get me funds promptly. So, I've been laying low on this forum in terms of specifically saying the car is sold, but needless to say between the 4 potential "buyers" I feel pretty confident that it is. I will keep everyone posted as to it's exact status as soon as I know more. Cheers, Craig

Car is now officially "sold" with payment received and will be heading off to South America in short order. Thanks to everyone who inquired and sorry that there are 3 or 4 very disappointed potential buyers.... Craig
