Our thoughts are with you as you work through these difficult times

Not sure if you're a member over on ZHPMafia.com, but if you'd like, I can post a link to this thread over there in the classifieds for you. There's a pretty focused ZHP crowd there.... Yours sounds amazing and will certainly draw the attention it deserves

Also, seems like Bringatrailer.com might fetch a higher price than your asking price based on your low mileage and provenance? A 2005 ZHP coupe with 41K miles sold in August for $13,750

Hi Pete,

Thanks much for your valuable input. For sure, you can cross-post it over to the ZHP Mafia, someone there may be interested. Also, thanks for suggesting Bringatrailer, I never knew much about them, that sounds like a good resource also.

Your help is greatly appreciated !

Best regards,
Bob

Bringatrailer.com has a very broad following, and if you look at all the unique low mileage cars they auction, seems like your gem could fetch a great price. Type ZHP in the search box.... You can also set a reserve if you want and protect yourself

And I've posted your car in the classifieds at ZHPMafia.com here: http://www.zhpmafia.com/forums/showt...s-44K-mile-ZHP

GLWS!

Hi guys. I got up bright and early and installed the wheels and did some minor cleaning and the wife took some photos.

The AC is cold, the heat works, the clutch is great. The windows all work fine as does the sunroof. Car has new brakes and rotors and the brake fluid was flushed with Pentosin Brake fluid.
Car also comes with a new rear spoiler for the trunk. This one has new cooling hoses and thermostat, and the coolant was drained and refilled, the drain plug on the block was removed. I got a good taste of coolant when I did it. The wheels are in PERFECT condition. Terrific driving car. I hate to see Bob sell this one.

That would be pretty amazing. I wish I could do it, but I don’t have the money or the space to make sure it’s taken care of like it should be.

I met the new owner of Bobs car yesterday. Everyone will be happy to know , he seems like one of us. A very knowledgeable enthusiast who will take good care of it.

Best wishes to Bob and family. You’re in our hearts my friend.

Glad it sold (for Bob’s sake) and glad it got a good home. Hopefully Bob can grab another one one day. So sad!

Update 10/24/19

Hi everyone,

It`s been an exhausting month or so, between taking care of Nancy, and also relocating our residence, which was The Move From Hell. I was up packing until 1-2 am most nights for several weeks, and then experiencing a 2-day move. Not easy.
Nancy is still undergoing evaluation by the medical team, next week she`ll be having a surgical procedure to have an access port inserted near her collarbone to give easier access for the various treatments to follow. I will post more on that as things develop.

My sincerest thanks to all who offered their generous help and prayers, this really means a lot to us.

Best regards,

Bob
