    Yes, Steve Earle's championship car, my car since 2003, the one Hot Wheels made more Ferrari models of than any other, and the car listed at Ferrari of Houston for $179,995 is available for quick trade or sale for significantly less.

    This is one of the last assets that Jennie and I own 50-50, we're motivated to sell it quickly after being listed at Ferrari of Houston for 6+ months. All trades and cash offers will be considered!

    My reputation with FerrariChat is worth far more than not providing more info on the car than required. Usually it is buyers beware the responsibility is on them to do a PPI and ask the right questions. Below is everything on the car and all little secrets!
    • The car has a title, I paid for all the title fees back in 2003, but I have never got the title in hand from Ferrari of Houston (back then Tony Nevotti was GM of Ferrari of Dallas). I bought from the widow of owner that bought from Steve Earle in 1999. Tony has tried for 16 years to get title from her unsuccessfully, supposedly power of attorney and title all hidden away in storage. You can speak with Tony directly about what can be done, I have considered bonded title, but trying to avoid that headache. I have all Bill of Sale and other paperwork from 2003.
    • The car is in great shape, I kept all maintenance up to date with Norwoods for the 16 years I owned. Ferrari of Houston went through the car this year and to get the car up to 100% their race standards recommended all of the following...
    -Replace/Rebuild front & rear suspension upper and lower control arm bushings and ball joints
    *** Front right lower control arm is cracked***
    -Replace/Rebuild front & rear shock absorbers, lower bushings, and spacers and pad on top of shock absorbers
    -Rebuild front & rear brake calipers
    -Replace front and rear wheel bearings
    -Replace damaged front brake ducting (Aftermarket alternative is an option) and refinish fiberglass ducting on front & rear brake disc assemblies
    -Replace wheel liners and lower gravel guards
    -Replace front & rear sway bar bushings and lubricate end links
    -Perform Four wheel alignment
    • I have all service records since I bought in 2003 from Norwoods. Records before that may be available from Ferrari of Houston. Some highlights...

    Congratulations on your divorce! If it isn’t already your life will improve, the sun will shine and birds will be singing. The car is just the spoils of war and you will replace it. The important thing is your happiness. No one should ever take that away from you again. Best of luck!
