Driver's seat looks pretty ragged for that mileage unless it was a large body beating on it! Nightfall blue and that brown interior are pretty unique.

Search on the VIN... This car was offered by some other auctions back in August/September 2017 in Houston. That should set off a host of giant red flags and alarms...

Sure sounds like a flood car. If you can place a bid and get it for 10k it would be a steal. It could make a very good track car. I am sure even with a salvage title it will go some where in the 20 to 25k area.

If anybody actually is interested, I'd be happy to look it over. Looks like it's about 30 miles from my house.

Looks like Phaphaphooey's car. He lives in Jackson TN and his Evora was that color and automatic.... Maybe I'm not remembering right.

Ironic that one of the things I use as an indicator of how well a car has been taken care of, the airbag cover on passenger side, looks fine!

Big gamble buying a flood car that may have had the wiring harness issue, I would think. You could be chasing electrical gremlins till the cows come home. And we all know what happens when you get gremlins wet..

It would be great to know if it was flooded or not. I saw some photos of this VIN online with a trashed rim. That is not nearly as bad as flood damage. What are the odds it was both the rim and flooded? If you really want to go look at it that would be awesome.
