wow, folks are actually bidding on it?

(that said, it does seem to be one of the least bad SEMA 'rally' cars I've seen, but that's not saying much)

Private bidding..could be a trick. The owners best friend could be putting in straw bids to generate interest.

Very true. When someone doesn't want to pay $12k for Evan Moen's ITR, I don't see how someone would want to pay at least that for this car.

"Displayed at SEMA in 2005 and stored since"

Doesn't exactly match the history as described earlier in this thread

"raced X Games in 2006. It was extremely competitive in the street legal 2 wheel drive class while winning most every race. The car was so competitive that it was beating many of the 4 wheel drive cars. Pretty soon the rules were changed and the car was no longer allowed to compete. The car has been stored since that time and has less than 4,700 miles since purchased new in 2005."
???

Yeah a little difference..just a tad.

Well the ad says $70K spent on building it....





You could have a great time studying economics and looking at "race cars" as a subject.

Adding a VIN, since it's come up for sale again, and is still being misrepresented.

VIN. 1G8AY12P74Z201077
