Thanks for the response to my sms, It\'s really appreciated. I would have loved to call but unfortunately, I wouldn\'t be allowed to do so due to the nature of my profession as I\'m serving in US army and I\'ve been currently deploy to Eastern Mediterranean off Syria\'s coastline on war front and calls are restricted at the moment, So calls are not allowed as security measures. This is why I had to sms you. How much are you willing to let it go?

I am buying this for my Son who just graduated from the University ,He studied Building Design & Architecture. I want it to be the perfect graduation gift for him and am making it a surprise package ,Does it have any history I should be aware of? and why are you selling if you don\'t mind my asking. I am already in talks with freighters that will handle the pickup and delivery . I will really appreciate if you can email more info about the car. Please i would appreciate if you could disclose the car sold to everyone that contacts or make inquiry about it.

Due to the nature of my profession, I am a very busy woman working all day, I don\'t have access to my Bank account online and also not with my credit card details here but i have my Bank account linked up with my PayPal account. Hence, Funds would be automatically deducted from my account for any transaction i made either by PayPal payment or Direct Deposit. It\'s safe, fast and secure and i will shoulder the expenses of PayPal charges so you can get your expected amount. Please get back to me with your details so i can make arrangement for the payment and proceed asap. You can easily visit www.paypal.com to get an account created if you don\'t have one. Less i forget, I would get in touch with my freight forwarding company who will be coming for the pickup. I wait to hear from you soonest.

Regards,
Sherry.
