    This was my car and I did not appreciate the negative chatter from some"club" members. Just remember what goes around comes around.

    I was expecting some respect for the build, stock driver, well sorted. Instead it got almost instant bull poop nitpicking from people who ought to be promoting the marque. Obviously I would have liked a better price, given the treatment outsiders get from "club" members I'll not be surprised if nobody wants to join. rant over.

    Jeff,

    The online marketplace can be a rough circuit, fwiw the car looked a decent presentable mostly stock car, the market is down a bit , but think that was bellow what i would have guessed.

    Am sure the nee owner will be happy with the car and appreciate your work

    Why didn't you put a reserve on it? I would have put the transmission and rear end number up to appease the unknowing that believe Tigers can be numbers matching. Now a days it's evolved to a range of casting dates in range. I think that even N.M. has accepted in range "original motors."

    It's always the same people that start picking cars apart. It's not theirs so they feel they have a moral duty to inform the world what is wrong without knowing why others may want to buy the car or part.. Keep in mind that they have never seen the car but in their mind they know everything that is wrong with it. Those are the facts.

    Sometimes it's wise to remember that they booed Babe Ruth.
