FS: FL - 1987 190e Racecar

I recently purchased a house and the project needs to go. Some of you may remember me from 190rev, if you frequent it.

For those that aren't familiar with the car, you can read up about it in the 190rev thread or it's main website. I know I'm not suppost to link to offsite locations, so msg me and I can send you the links.

There is ALOT included in this car. Parts cost alone, no labor or consumables equals close to $9k.

I am looking for $8,500 OBO. I have the title in hand and the chassis is clean as a wistle. No known accidents and no notable rust except for the common area of the door weep areas (open your door, look at the bottom of the door).

All resonable offers being considered.

Also willing to trade + cash for a good 4 or 6 cylinder truck.
