Wonder if it's the real deal?

j -- if you use your membership privs, go to the members only section, look it up in the registry, you'll find quite a bit of interesting history on that car :)
it's what I did, and yep, it looks legit

Yep this one has been for sale quite a few times. I'm one of those "1 of only 4 Dark Sage Rent-A-Racer's still in existence." I know who owns the other two :)

Nope, that would be the same one Ninja-Boy had,
this is a different one, pretty sure anyway...(registry says so)

** Edit confirmed **
that 4E (Ninjs/Bud/Basler) vin ended with 176240, so it's one later.

Bud's / Ninja Boys Hertz now belongs to Jonathon Powell to be on display at his new Mustang Museum of America once it opens. It's currently under construction with the main frame & roof being put together now. Here it is at the SVOCA Reunion in 2015.

No problem. Just to think Basler offered it to me for $7500 before he sold it to Ninja. I already had mine so I figured I didn't need two of them.


Here is one of the others in 4E. Mine and Kendal's are both consecutive VIN numbers and Unit Numbers.


That makes the 4 they are referencing in the ad.

Funny Ken. I was talking to John about buying it back then for that price too. I was in Detroit and ended up buying the 85.5 4E from my buddy Andy instead.

ok since we are on 4e cars whatever happened to the one that got shipped and the rear quarters got squished? ......was that also the one that was found in the horse trailer?

My memory is going to the darkside...... I remember bit of the stories but dont recall the whole thing

Rob, I never heard what happened to the one in the horse trailer, after it got squished.

His name escapes me at the moment but he still owns it and it has been repaired. We talk on FaceBook. I think he may still be serving overseas.

Yes it is the horse trailer car.
