[DML] Re: Vin 805 engine (WAS: Legend Cars)

Darryl was correct...the engine and parts went to Toby, then
an offer was made to Toby by Chris N. for the engine remains.

With shipping issues, I am not sure if a final deal was worked
out or if the shipping issues put a halt on the engine deal.

I too was working on a possible deal for Darryl's parts and
the burned turbo engine (before Toby made the final deal) and
I do have some photos of the burned engine (that Darryl took),
so I will take a look through my archive to try to find them.

I do recall quite a bit of dry chemical fire extinguisher 
residue still on many areas of the engine block in my photos.
