Anxiously waiting to see where this one goes...……….
There is more than a fair amount of jealousy here as well....
The, ".....why couldn't this happen to me" crowd... So they're hoping its a BS story...

In my case, such stories, when real, come under the heading of, "....sh*t that will never happen to Frank"

Well - it MIGHT not exist at all, or it MIGHT be a 63 that is 1/1024th Z06...

Like some Presidential candidates are native-American...

We may never know....

I managed to get in touch with her by PM. Good thing, too, as she didn’t know the braking system was dangerous when used on the street. I went right over and helped her nephew, Zoroaster, take it off and put on some nice, safe discs. Also got that fiberglass tank out of there, so the ethanol wouldn’t eat it and cause a fire. She managed to dump that crap off at the landfill. Wheeeewww

Finding an unrestored tanker would be pretty cool. The posts that follow can be pretty informative. This post above scares the **** out of me.

Not sure exactly where in IL you are, but I’m in the near west suburbs of Chicago. I’m not a Z06 or tanker expert, but I do have quite a bit of experience with 63s and 67s. Would be very willing to put eyes on it and help assess what you have, perhaps provide some insight on how to proceed. No ulterior motives from me, my plate is full and I have no interest in buying any more at this point.

Oh, I wouldn’t be so sure.

Chances are she is so busy with her new “friends”, each thinking they are unique in their ability to charm her out of her ultra rare vehicle, completely unaware they are one of many who has made it to the next level of the exclusive charade, she has no time or desire to respond.
