    @9146max Of course you can. In any case I don't know how this "inspection" works with the site. Regarding sharing contact information, etc.
    So if you want to see the car in person,..... I do have to share info with you. And since I am not allowed to, if I do that, I will be suspended.
    Why don't we found out with the Pcarmarket Staff and get their advice regarding what to.
    Because the car is in Deal Tank I understand but in order to pay full price and or to make an offer you might want to see inspect and test the car. Lets see what they have to say for this particular situations.
    I will let you know and also you should contact them.

    Please pay attention that is particular one, was built on July 1991....

  • Principe (seller) 2 weeks, 1 dayago

    Good evening and thanks for watching this beautiful and if you allowed me to say, Very unique and hard to find well preserved, pampered and garage kept piece.
    Looking at the condition is very impressive but driving it and verifying that every other electronic power components and/or remote control mechanism work like it should by the time it left factory is more tan impressive. Looks like nobody even touch the spare tire, etc.
    I will be around anytime in order to respond to any questions you guys might have and or to
    face-time the car and or etc.
    Thanks again and please BID!
    Stay safe and Happy!!
