    This story is getting more bizarre by the minute. According to this link, a Florida man (not the one that Lance bought the car from) is now claiming ownership of the #1 Cunningham Corvette and has a copy of a Florida title in his now deceased father's name. He claims that the car was stolen from his father 35 years ago and he now wants it back.

    Apparently he showed up in Carlisle and tried to recover the car, which might explain why it was suddenly moved to a "secure" location on Friday.

    Stay tuned, this may take a while to play out!

    That is interesting, indeed. Hopefully, Lance can give us "the rest of the story" once things calm down.

    Round 2 - An answering salvo from Lance and Richard Carr. Rather than risk misinterpreting what was said by whom, I'll post the link and you can read and interpret for yourself. This is the LINK.

    Let the lawyers commence!

    Interesting reading. Thank you for posting the link!

    I have no doubt lawyers got involved as soon as there was a question raised... and rightly so...

    something definitely strange wrt car was stolen, especially after checks that Lance asserts were done before his purchase, which I don't doubt all due diligence was taken

    Wouldn't you think that if the car was stolen from the guys Dad, that he would have reported it years ago.
    Then he applies for a title just recently but doesn't have the car. Good way to cover your bases but the timing seems a little off.

    I hope for Lance, the foundation and Mr Carr that this is cleared up as soon as possible.
