"The car is fully restored and Rich has put about 30,000 miles on it (as of 2011).

Update from Rich! 1/10/15
well its still nice and comfortable in my garage and gets out on a regular basis 
i have over 40,000 miles on it now and still works great 
i took it to the Syracuse nationals for a few years and one year ended up with a  designers dozen pick out of approx 7000 cars that year 
i dont plan on selling it but you never know what might happen 
i do have an extra NOS material that will make an top for my car if i every have to do that 
it will go for sale if i sell my car
