I love you Brett but your pics are terrible. Here's a couple I have.





Obviously I've seen this car in person and it has the most flawless bodywork I've ever seen on a car outside of dedicated show cars. $10k is a steal for this car. Sorry to see you letting it go, but I understand completely.

Holy crap I wish I had $10K. I spotted a pic of your car on the internet back when I was in college, and I have always wanted to find a 262 to turn into your exact car!!! Sadly I do not earn enough, so don't have the $$$, and it literally breaks my heart. Good luck with this sale.

That's gotta be fixed; check the "orphans" thread on TBs for sale forum. They find quite a few 240s on various Graig's Lists. :)
