Very very reluctant sale. I've owned this car for just under four years, have many tens of thousands of dollars of receipts to show and just got it right. I have been diagnosed recently with illness and a race car is a luxury. Well built, well maintained, reliable track car. Bargain at under $40k. All receipts as proof.
