I bought the car direct from Gene after talking with my boss (who was a VW dealer) and had it shipped to my home. I bought it in my name because the dealer wanted only to have his name on the car as a sponsor. I would love to know where its located and would love to buy it and return it back the way I raced it. If you do locate it please feel free to email me the information anytime."
