Cell phone camera shot to be stealthy is best.

This one just does not pass the smell test. Anyone with a real car would be very open to prove that its the real thing so that it brought the most money at auction. He is fighting it and that tells a lot...

waiting to find out how this turns out is almost as good a cliffhanger as waiting for the next season of 24.

Chris.
Talked to the fellow last night have an appointment at 7pm. Wanna come with me?

Really did not give me much to go on, just comments like.. "in 4 years it would be worth 4Xs what it is now." And no numbers either.
Have to catch up on the reading on this topic. And what I need to look for at numbers. Will bring camera too.

Tim,

I will send you a PM with my home and mobile # if you would like to talk with me about this car or what to look for. I am in the Central time zone and will be around this evening.

I don't want this guy to burn someone else with this phony.

24? This is more like watching the 60 Minutes crew getting ready to go in and expose a crook on camera!

Go Team!

Sometimes these things get to be like shooting fish in a barrel - like the thread last year with the guy who claimed to have the 'werks' rally car - and that takes a lot of the fun out of it.

Take a look at the VIN plates below. Top is the eBay RS, bottom is the Japan 406 RS plate and is identical to all early car plates. Forget about being able to read the numbers - this isn't even the correct plate. Note the 4 rows of boxes in which numbers can be stamped. The eBay plate has 3 rows of boxes!? The lower righthand box is always blank on all early cars. The eBay plate has something stamped in that box.

I guess I could go on and point out the differences in rivet size, but what's the point?
