That's kinda disappointing. 
 

I sold it for less than Challenge money with the understanding that the new buyer was gonna try and bring it back to the Challenge. 
 

I don't see any changes whatsoever in those pics from when I sold it. It looks like it is completely unchanged, with a price tag that is 10X what I sold it for. 
 

Uggh.

I've been hoping this car would resurface, but not like this.

He says it has a Georgia title--are you sure you don't still own it? Sort of weird if he never transferred it after all these years.

Since this car's asking price is clearly in violation of SV's original sales agreement, I think determining if the title has not been flipped has become important.

Are the other Miata parts he is selling the spares lot that might have gone with the car?
