Perry Designs 550 For Sale

I never thought I would do this, but I am going to have to say goodbye to my Porsche 500 (replica).  Not a thing wrong with it except that I do not use it enough anymore and other "toys" have taken over my time and money.  I know that in the future, I will miss this car terribly, but it is time.  If anyone has any questions or needs any additional photos, please let me know and I will do what I can to help!
