So you did eventually get a title and did you just sign over this clean US title to the buyer?
Is it uncouth to ask how much you got for it?
So much for what that one insurance company said about them not appreciating, they're definately a rare collectible.
I never received a title for the car - I ate the $1000+ that I paid Erik for a title - he screwed me. Maybe it is uncouth to ask, but I'll be uncouth and say - I sold the car for $10,000. I think Hagerty's Insurance was afraid since they probably have never heard of the car - they don't like to (or won't) insure kit cars, and maybe they thought I was trying to pull the wool over their eyes. If they'd have done the tiniest bit of research, they'd have known I wasn't, but they're probably too busy insuring Lambos to deal with piddly old me. Anyhow, I found a great rate through a local insurance company - they had no qualms insuring me after seeing the car and photographing it.
It is a different seller name, but I would NOT put it past Erik to do this type of thing. The body of the listing is written EXACTLY like it was for my auction, so I'd say yes, this is Erik, and yes, I'd steer clear of him.
