    Default R8 G For sale in Queensland ?

    So, What happened to the R8G for sale in Queensland. I saw it on Saturday morning on the 'Cars For Sale' and when I went to show a mate of mine on Sunday, it was gone. Did the owner withdraw it?

    I'm assuming it sold in a day or two. Would I be right ??

    Some lucky person now has a project!

    Was it put forward as a project car? The only one that might possibly come up for sale in QLD is in quite reasonable condition, and I would expect the owner would be looking for mid $20's or more for his car. It could be a project living up in North Queensland owned by a non club member that I don't know about.

    The advertised car was Ash's R1135, so hardly a project car. I'm guessing that it was either snapped up very quickly, or Ash realised it was too good to sell. :-)

    If I recall, this same car was also put up on AF a year or so ago, and in the same mysterious circumstances, was suddenly withdrawn without notice.

    Ash's car was the one I was thinking about. Certainly not a project car. The reason for the question, as I did not see the ad.
    There may be an R8G in the country somewhere we don't know about, but I doubt it.

    Yep the car in question was my beloved. It was an extremely tough decision to make but sadly had to be done.
