The story sounds to good to be true like some of the stories on Craigslist. I know she said it wasn't for sale but some scammers start out fishing for an unsuspecting buyer willing to send money on a hope and a prayer that they can score the Holy Grail.

Kind of looking that way. 3 posts in 1 hour and then nothing.....

Or maybe all the movement of the thread has her confused?

Krissi, Not to be someone trying to fill you with paranoia but there is good reason to be ultra particular about who you choose to work on your car. As you are already aware, you have an extremely rare car. There are a multitude of shops who would find nothing wrong with ďloosingĒ your original parts. A person who is not hands on and doesnít know these cars would be a huge mistake. Choosing a person to work on the car that isnít honest is even worse. I believe you would be well served to be present to chronicle and photograph everything. Last item, donít pay too much in advance. Keeping the money proportionate to the work is just good business.
My gut would be to pay attention to Nowhere Manís suggestions. Keith seems very knowledgeable.

Did anyone consider that Krissi may have gone to work this morning at her day job?

That's a possibility but I would be real wary of this one. It has all the signs of being sketchy. Read her profile.

I hope it's legit and I hope she documents the resto... what would be the point of a fake here on CF?

I'm hoping Kristie is the real deal, but, a historically around here a lack of pics suggests that there is nothing to take pics of...

We're conditioned here to have doubts about stories like these. I think we should wait to see what happens next keeping in mind we may have already scared her away. If the story is as stated she now may be worried about can she trust anybody with this car because of the potential value. Or it's not "real" and these old SOBs saw right through this.
Anxiously waiting to see where this one goes...……….
