Sorry for the late reply, been in Florida for the past 3 weeks trying to make this deal go through and stayed with friends. Sort of pay it forward type deal.
No the seller paid off the loan with his own money and we finally got clear title. Car arrived via transport yesterday night and was so dirty from the trip that I washed it this morning even though I knew it would rain on me for a bit. It's safely tucked away beside my Vette in the garage and all is well since...... "I'm Back Home".
My payment was my son’s hug and kiss when he said, "I love you dad, thanks so much for everything", and repeated it twice this morning before he left for school. I didn't know what to say and just melted as he walked away since he was running late due to working late yesterday night.
I was actually suprised when my wife told me he was on his best behaviour while I was away. Just imagine huh?
The drama is over...............thank goodness.
