Have to agree with Jeff and Joules on the "buy it back" arrangement. A romantic ideal to be sure, but I've had only ONE CAR out of a whole lot that I panged for, longed for, hoped would "ONE DAY" be mine again... sigh.
I wouldn't have taken the others back at the time they came around.
I'd moved on; the car got worse, the memories got better. We were better off apart. So, I'd reconsider - and the analogy of that old girlfriend was just perfect Joules.
We've been down this "no export" rule before. Your call on that. If someone could handle the export legwork for you, would you pay a fee to have that done (provided you don't give up anything financially)? I'm not offering, just wondering if that would open up another option for you.
Best wishes no matter what. GREAT looking car.
