Nice work Mike! The car turned out really nice! I wasn't sure you'd be able to part with it after doing all that work.

Bump for the weekend....tell your friends. Have had 1 full trade offer(LA, '71 Corvette red/red..yuck), 1 partial trade offer(2004 Harley on ebay for $12k + cash) and a guy in San Jose wants it but won't be able to come up for awhile. I keep getting booted/flagged from CL.... Las Vegas(2 times), Los Angeles(1 time), Portland(1 time). Kinda annoying, takes time to re-list.

I don't personally see an issue with you posting it in other cities, especially portland but most people think of the site as a local venue. I would assume thats why they are flagging you.

Yes, the craigslist ads when submitted have all the info entered including VIN and the statement that I do have the PHS documents. About as comprehensive an ad as I could provide short of explaining every step.

Passed the listing info and photos on to an executive here at Boeing who was looking for a '68-'69 Chevelle. Maybe he'll be happy to just own a beautiful A-body. I'll let you know if he has any interest.

Sorry, Mike, no joy. He has his heart set on a '68-'69 Chevelle. He did say that what you did was amazing work.
