CONGRATULATIONS! and Welcome from one of the Las Vegas Mob! If you own an SSR, you got a GREAT deal no matter what the dollars and cents are. There are a lot more benefits and blessings to owning one than you know . . . yet.

Welcome from central Texas:
I think you got a great price; several 1000 less than at least 3 have older ones brought in a recent high-end auctions. It has some miles on it already; however, you don't hear about mileage when you are watching a classic car restoration show on TV. They are not concerned about mileage; their rebuilding them anyway. I say, drive it and enjoy it…

Welcome from another of the SoCal Nuts. Sounds like a good deal to me, but that will be up to you to decide when you start driving it.

Nice

Welcome from VA, seems like a decent price, but you do still have to paint over that primer, are you painting it Blur? H

Welcome from one of the newly inducted Blues Brothers. That color of yours will make great racing stripes for mine someday.

I moved to Texas a few years ago from Lexinton, KY (actually Nicholasville and Georgetown). Really miss that part of the country. Still have a lot of friends in Lex, Louisville, and Cincy.
