Don't worry. I stayed at a Holiday Inn a few years ago, and read up on this yesterday. Here is my entire research training catalog:

It's not that the car isn't a nice car, it's just that the 3,400 mile thing is kind of the only real thing I could sort of believe on this. If the car was parked in a barn for 4 years, I'm still thinking unless stored properly, there'd likely be some really crappy problems with the car coming out of a barn, regardless. The owner pushes the originality part of it like no other car in the world had been stored away. I get that, he wants to sell it. But the real-world conditions have it leading some suspected sketchy past. Trust but verify. Again, not that important to me, but I wish there was a picture of the SPID so we can see exactly how it came out of the factory. I don't even know where they put them on the Elkys. Behind the seat somewhere?

Wellston, OK
A quick google search of the VIN comes up with a report that the vehicle was silver and gray....

Which may or may not be accurate

Not so much that, but if I bought it then found out it wasnt what it was represented as I would be pizzed. BAT could care less as long as they get paid.
