Thanks for your comments Jerry. This whole deal got started because I wanted to do the "right thing". I was good either way since my intentions were to drive my car. I can only assume that the owner of the car in question is either out of the country
or just can't swing it right now with a bad economy or who knows?
I would certainly entertain buying his car as well if that could be worked out. My correct e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org
Once again thanks for the help and everyones time
