24 September 2017: You can mark my magnificent Midnight Blue E.R.A. Cobra SOLD! It's gone to a new stable and a very lucky new owner in Naples, Florida. It took a while to sell, but patience has its rewards. I could not have ever expected to find a more perfect buyer. We hit it off right off the bat. I also want to thank Curt for his patience in guiding me through the entire process. Once again, all the best! Dan Van Zeilen

The terrific photography you see on this page was brought to you by Dan's good friend and photographer Jamie Montanus using a Nikon D800 DSLR digicam, and by his good friend Don Bugnacki using his trusty ol' Olympus D540Z digicam.
