    This is probably the most difficult post I have ever made on this beautiful site. Someone called and purchased the car over the phone this afternoon. I had talked with two other wonderful people that wanted to buy the car but circumstances prevented them from making an instant decision and sending funds. I fully understand this but realize that it was my obligation to sell the car to the first person who said "I will take it" and sends the money.

    I got to know in a brief time, the other two potential buyers and know that this post will cause some heartache which frankly causes me some pain. However, I know that money talks the loudest and I was fully transparent with all that were interested. I only wish that I had two more like this to sell to these two other fine people. Thank you all for being so supportive and especially to Croc for his continued support of us crazy se7en lovers!

    I rescind by statement about you being supportive! Well, maybe just a little . It really was agonizing in one instance because I was pulling for someone that is a regular on this site. Timing is not always in our favor for every endeavor. The recipient of the car is also a very experienced exotic car owner and knew exactly what he was looking for so that is a very good thing.

    When I was in the motor trade, I always said, "First one with the money wins." Also never took deposits. Bring all the money or i kept trying to sell it.

    Money. That's just the way it is.

    The buyer of the Stalker XL was exceptionally pleased when it arrived at his home in St. Paul, MN. He luckily had a few good days before Winter set in and went out for some fun blats. He commented to me that I hadn't warned him about the sweet sounds the side-pipe mufflers make on deceleration. He is used to high performance cars but commented to me that the brute power of the LS3/480 powerplant in an 1860 pound package was delightful. I am tickled that he is already enjoying the ride and looking forward to the Spring when he will be able to take that bad boy out and thoroughly run it through its paces. Se7ens rule!
