I'm happy to hear that! Glad you're keeping it. But if you find right buyer that'll take care of car, do what you feel is best.

I'll eventually sell car to a buyer already lined up (co-owner of shop that did my air suspension), but my story isn't finished quite yet. This is a slow build, I projected 10 years to finish. I'm approaching 6th year in Jan.

Thanks for kind words.
