i think i am very close to convincing myself to keep the car for a while. i have it posted on another board(local) for trade and everyone wants to know my cash price and when i tell them, they get pissed and say that its not worth it. and they look to see what i paid for it. i think i'll just fix it up some more and go from there. got my new top(ez-on product) might wait till i get the car painted before i put it on, also got my tonneuo cover back, the guy did an awesome job. i'll take some pics of it before i install it also(after the paint job also)

Alas, one of my few local McLaren brethren is flying the coup. I hope that you find a good buyer. Good luck.


If I could only find a 1986 Coupe in good condition (that isn't priced so high that I'll have to take a second mortgage) you would gain a DFW McLaren brethren. I'm trying. The 1986 coupe on Hank's site sure is nice, but it has two things going against it for me. It's in New York (damn thats a long way), and it's $12,000. It is however exactly what I am looking for. Does anyone want to offer me some encouragement? My wife sure wont.



The part about the car being in New York isn't a big problem. I bought my car from a guy on Long Island, and shipping it here was painless and fast (once I decided not to go with a cut-rate shipper).

The $12k . . . well, that's another story.

cut-rate shipper hmm? any idea on shipping from canada to georgia or can you get me the shippers# thanks

Encouragement?
How's this:-

In life, we seldom regret what we did,
more often we regret what we didn't Cool

An excellent shipper is Dependable Auto Shippers. You can find them at:

www.dasautoshippers.com

For a thousand bucks, they picked up my car at a residence on Long Island and safely delivered it within three days to North Texas. Every part of the transaction was first-rate and professional.

Did you buy your car without ever seeing it in person? This is the part that scares me. I'll bookmark this shippers page, because I am sure I will need it at some point.

Yes. And yes, it was scary. Before doing so, however, I exchanged a BUNCH of e-mail with the seller and talked to him on the phone at length. We went over everything that he knew about the car, and he sent me a ton of photos to back up what he was saying. He was also forthright about the things that he did not know.

In the end, I trusted that he was giving me the honest scoop and I pulled the trigger on the deal. I scrutinized the car greatly upon its arrival, and was pleased to find that he had, in fact, been honest with me.
