Really good point not to jump to conclusions. The seller of this 4k mile car comes off as 'salesman' rather than an innocent guy. Big difference between someone is asking what to do with an old barn find, and someone selling a low mileage car for a likely profit.

That Ferrari story is amazing, and makes you wonder what else is lurking in someone's garage out there . . .

Skeptics pounce and impugn the guy's integrity and story page after page. But the car was legit, and now will be a Bonham's cover car in AZ this winter. At $1M it was the steal of the year.
It's cheap and easy to critique from the keyboard, but every 'barn find' has hair on it, and if you don't actually expend some effort to see beyond it, you'll miss opportunities...
what to do with a 67' 330 GTS with low mileage -
Bryant N. - San Diego CA
1986 930 - Meteor Metallic/Black
1988 E30 M3 - Zinnoberrot/Tan
