    Vin# 10985 was on the Beverly Hills Car Club website for $14k, I managed to get them down to $13K. They were very good to deal with, as were my shipping company Extreme Global.

    Rather than go though the whole list of all the issues, I have put a video up here:

    As you can see she's going to be a huge project, but if Dave Stragand can build Project Vixen out of all those parts, I think I can get 10985 looking fairly decent with enough time and money!
    ... and just over two years later ... nice article, Peter. Keep up the good work.

    I'm a big fan of Peter's....I remember when he first posted this and I could see how committed he is. He's clearly a determined guy...very inspiring.

    The car doesn't run & drive yet, but he's totally living the dream....I love it!
    VIN 4728 is on standby to have its new exhaust installed, and has lost priority to a kitchen/living room renovation & 60-80 hour work weeks.

    I don't think they are shady at all. They photograph everything and make basic factual statements (and spare us the usual page long description of JZD and DMCL that other sellers think potential buyers need to know). I note that this particular ad even omits their usual "mechanically sound".

    And according to buyers of their fine automobiles they will answer questions and take additional photos as necessary.

    Sure their prices are high for what's on offer, but they are not forcing anyone to buy them, and they are negotiable, presumably moreso after the car has sat for a while. Even that car with effectively no frame and the four wheels pointed in different directions has sold recently.

    But as with any used (or new) car purchase - buyer beware. Do your research and take a test drive if possible.

    No-one is to stone anyone, even, and I want to make this absolutely clear, even if they do say "carburetor"

    SOAB.

    That was supposed to be in the BHcC thread. How did that happen ?!

    Thanks for pointing it out. I was wondering what happened to my post.
