The key is finding out what engine it has. For some reason the engine pic is from the black car next to it:

This time it has the right engine picture. No SC.

Also, instead of an auction it's a BIN or make offer. Might be a deal.

Hah....Apparently the picture of the Jag engine has been replaced with a picture of an R1..... and now it's back on Ebay..

I live pretty near to where they claim the car to be as I live in Pasadena, only a 20 min drive from La Crescenta. While I'd love to pursue for my self, now really isn't the time what with 2 sons in college and a 3rd to head off in 2 more years. While I'm not anywhere near an expert, I'd be glad to look the car over and give my rather inept appraisel as to the seller and car. Just send me a PM.

I should have rechecked on E-bay before I posted. We were getting ready to leave for dinner and din't post the offer to look before leaving. It has since sold again. You gotta wonder what the real story is here...

Should the car re-list yet again, my offer still stands.

Not a chance in hell that I'd hit the BIN with that description and number of pictures. It's like playing poker without looking at your cards and hoping for the best.

Well, here's the latest. A week ago I looked at it both for myself as well as another poster in S.B. The askng price was slightly high but took the car out of contention when I ran a spread sheet on it for known parts needing replacement. I did tell Greg it was a good one for him. Since then the seller e-mailed to say the car has sold, along with the Jag in the background, 10k for the both. Supposedly it was a couple of kids looking to buy the Jag but saw the Avanti sitting there as well and thought it was too cool to pass up. I hope they understand what they have, time will tell
