After much soul searching with this I have decided to part with Justin, for those that don't know him he is probably the rarest Viper in the world.

My intention is to ship him back to the USA and offer him through Chuck value is perhaps as much as 100K in US Dollars.

:censorted:

ETA

If you turn you post into an advert it will get removed.

Sorry to hear that Paul but if you do send it back don't forget to claim back the original import duty under the re export scheme

tough decision Paul, is Justin a Chrysler?

i just mention that as you may need to get a 'certificate of conformity' off Chrysler UK to clear US customs, crazy i know...

do you remember Phil Buffery (red/white Roe S/C UK press car, the viper that held the fastest towing record) he had that problem when he moved to Florida, his Chrysler GTS was stuck in customs for over a month while the correct paper work was sorted, and it ran up a big bill

Yeah, I'm sure VHR was hit with loads of extra costs when he took Blo3 Job to the US.

Actually there are no extra costs from importing your own car from the UK to the US despite the horror / scare stories you hear.

Obviously Paul's situation is different in that his car is not coming here to live with him but is being sold but I think the situation would be similar, wnhe the car is imported you have to complete a declaration.

The new owner would have to pay sales tax in their state but that's true for any vehicle purchase new or old.

Regarding costs, obviously as a non-runner my car went in a container and I used a company called Mellfields in Southampton and it cost about 1500 quid from Southampton to Norfolk, VA. Given where Chuck is to NY would probably be cheaper.

Then the fun bits start: over here they charge you about $300 to x-ray your container which is random i.e. sometimes they do sometimes they don't unluckily for me they did! You also get hit with unloading fees, warehouse fees, dock fees, cock fees (okay I made that one up) and anything else the agent thinks they can get away with charging you. In essence allow $1500 charges at the USA end and that should cover it especially as it's a US built car. One thing that would be good if you have it Paul would be the original title if the car was registered here in the USA, before it was given to JB.

As it would appear the dreaded C has now passed to my brain, reducing my time even further Justin will now be placed in the adverts next week I paid Steve over 50K for it but I need to shift it and move on with what little of my life I have left, but I am prepared to take 40K which is a huge opportunity to buy one of just 100 cars ever made and the most interesting Viper in the world at number 52 celebrating the win of the 52 race car.

I really need this car to stay in the UK and go to a good home of a club member who can only watch it go up in value, USA value already for a numbered car is 100K in US dollars.

Dear Paul - I can confidently say that Barry speaks for us all and if I had room in my garage for a third Viper I would snap the GTR up at that price.

Paul, so, so desperately sorry to hear that! Our heartfelt and sincere thoughts to you, Barbara and your daughter.

Mark and Katie

(p.s. I'll drop you a note on the car - I'm desperately trying to see if there is a way we can...).

Paul, it's difficult to know what to say that hasn't already been said above. It's not just words, but if there's anything that any of us can do then all you need to do is ask.

I'm sure Justin will go to a good home.

Matty.

This is not really an advert more like re-homing a faithful dog.
