Thank you Damon, one of the cars is located in Glasgow , KY.

Not sure if it's the same guy or not, but I went and looked at a turn key Mustang a guy from Glasgow was selling.
Checked it out and told him, "ok, if it runs within 3 tenths of a second of what you claim it does, I'll give you x amount for it"

A few days later he arranges  for his " driver" to meet me at Beech Bend on a Tuesday night test n tune.
The driver rolls the car off the trailer, but the car never fires up.
I was patient and the guy tried for an hour to start it, but no luck.

We headed back home.

Apparently, as I found out later, all this guy does is buy race cars from out of state and tries to sell them turn key first, or he might part them out.
I did not keep his phone number, but I kinda remember where his house is.

Talking with this guy, he sounds like a car salesman. very pushy.... certainly not interested.

Just an idea, but how about installing the new bullet in a Grumman food truck, it should fit a 31x14.5 tire and between rounds, a lil steak and lobster for sale... AKA the "fastest food truck on the planet" Razz

For you.... I'd say get a track car only it will be a whole lot easier on your life, insurance and pocket book..... You are to hard on shit to have something to go very far in and the street car will end up being wrecked or broken all the time. Not to mention the potential trouble with the law.

Race car for sure.  It won't continue to eat your lunch when you park it. Rolling Eyes

BTW, it doesn't need to be an exotic, parts eating sinkhole. A reliable race car will get you to the track more often for less money.

X2 don't worry about being the fastest..... Worry about having a good time and making it affordable so you aren't in the position of not having one again.
