        A extremely rare classic performance Avanti like this one does not come to market very often.
        Sure it does. In fact it comes to market about once a month .

          Just sent you an email about the car. Really would appreciate your personal evaluation from your visit viewing the car.

                Call me nuts, for this money the little things should have been taken care of.

                Look at the tach........it needs to be re-painted........black paint is flaked off........interior is far from mint........four speed is non stick shifter handle and the boot and rim.......this car should never demand pedigree prices........it is what it it......a Plane Jane that had it's engine swapped.........an attempted clone of the factory nine that Stude actually built.

                I was not impressed when I viewed this 'classic' up close and personal:-(

                  I would not trust the condition of the R3 engine either, based on personal experience.

                    I have personally seen, worked on and drove this car, although might not be totally a factory correct R3 clone it is a jamb up car. I had it up on my rack and the underneath is very nice, and the interior is in above average shape. The car drives correctly and is very fast and fun to drive. The car is a deal at the price even in this bad economy The reason it keeps coming up for auction is because of the economy not because of anything wrong with the car. I have met the owner several times and he is a very nice guy. What makes the guy an A-hole ? because he has listed the car several times?. I think maybe some one ought to look at who the A - hole is here, it is negative comments and bashing like this that drive many people away from our club

                      Ebay is a store. If you don't want to shop there, don't.
                      Pretty simple

                        You will see relisting all the time on E-Bay does that back them all A-Holes. Think not! Just means the right buyer and seller has not come together yet.

                            Why is this guy an A-hole? Maybe he's "puffed" his ad a bit as to condition, but the nuts and bolts description of the car and the photos are honest and accurate, aren't they? He's pretty clear that's it's a clone, or a re-engined car, whatever you want to call it.

                            Is he an A-hole because he thinks the car is worth more than you do?

                            I'm not in the market, but if I were, I'd make what I thought was a fair bid for it. If I bought it, fine, if not, the seller and I can both move on.

                            I've looked at many, many cars that I passed on because the owner thought more of them than I did, but that didn't make them A-holes.

                            And I once advertised a car a half-dozen times over several years until a buyer and I agreed on a price. Does that make me an A-hole?
