The car was originaly purchased by an assistant school superintendent in Sacramento, CA. He had the car until the early 90's when a collector out of Texas bought it. He sold the car a few years later to a couple in New York who then sold the car to Gunnar Racing, who only owned it for a few months to make the Pixar movie car with.The car has 1 repaint and an original 112k miles. Since it spent the vast majority of it's life in the western US, it is virtually rust free and has not been restored. It runs and looks great, other than needing a repaint and a little re-chroming.
