    I think you mean the North American dual points R1 R2 set up, but maybe not...

    One is idle only, the other is for RPMS above idle???

    In any event, glad you got it sorted!
    Glad also you are feeling better...

    Mitchell,
    I feel absolutely terrible that you are having such a disastrous turn of events. Do you have someone that can put together a list and some photos of the cars you are contemplating selling. I know it's the last thing you would ever want to do so I believe you, and I'm sure you are serious about your condition. I'm not sure if I am in the position to purchase another car right now but I may be in the market for assemblies and parts for the 400 cars. I would love to have spares for the different systems on my car.
    If you can get someone to assist you with cataloging your inventory, and I know you have quite a collection of parts, it may make them more marketable. The more people that know what you have available , the more you would be able to realize from selling them.
    I wish you were doing better. I have considered you a good friend since meeting you and I hope you can still turn this around.
    My most sincere regards,
    David

    Good day Mitchell,

    That is absolutely horrible news! I am very sad to hear this!

    As for selling... Dave has an excellent suggestion. You need to find someone you can take inventory, catalog it, take a bunch of excellent high res pics, and compose a series of ads and/or document all that you have. Otherwise you will be fielding a large number of calls, e-mails, etc all requesting the same info...and the result will simply absorb a lot of your time. Also, you will need to determine how you wish to sell the items... piece-meal, lot-sale, via a broker, etc.

    In the past I created a website for a particular car I was selling. Within the site I detailed a complete history of the car, what was done to it, and include a lot of high res pics. The result was that the "tire kicker" calls and e-mails dropped dramatically and the remaining inquiries were by serious people... a few weeks later the car sold. Perhaps this may be an avenue you could pursue as well?

    Cheers,

    Sam

    I was afraid I would read this one day.

    There's also the crated art collection he purchased (from Chris Minnick's closed Houston shop)...

    Mitchell, you need to give SOMEONE your Power of Attorney, man...and what your wishes are, for your remaining worldy goods.

    You have my number, did they take your cell phone??

    This is the hardest thread to understand. Does anyone know where he is and if he's ok?

    Being in the UK I don't know Mitch personally but obviously some of you do and are hopefully aware of his family sitution. Is there anyone close to him who is looking after his interests, both health-wise (which is the main priority here) but also his assets and possessions?

    It would be truly awful if he was facing this all alone and it should be a concern to all of us that he's being cared for.

    Well, if you follow his garage thread (and yes we all got togther in Austin last year, at F1) the facts are all "out there"....

    The garage project stalled, he fired the architect (who apparently was also the General contractor, very odd, in my experience) and it sits without glass, in Lexington KY.

    His only living relative is his Mom, at 102 years old (maybe 103).

    In the TV interview he gave (great link, in here somewhere) he recaps his car collection, and he bought a huge stash of art here in Houston, I found, over $4k just to crate and ship (ironically it belonged to Chris Minninck, of the failed Vintage Motorcars, on Kempwood, who's technician totalled the clean 1992 F40, smashing it to hell, becoming the subject of a reality show, as Gas Monkey Garage *&(^*&^ ed it ALL up!!)

    So, with no heirs to leave the money to, his garage Mahal has always been a "go broke then croak" venture, to quote Mitchell himself.

    Now, I am not sure exactly, HOW he got from Lexington KY, up to this ambulatory facility in Columbus Ohio, where they mismanaged his care, apparently, and won't allow him concierge services ( or he cannot access the money to pay for it, maybe).

    IF I knew the address, my gf's son is there (and he's a white hat hacker, he would make them PAY, for mistreating our man!!), or at least take him fresh clothing and food, He was asking for WATER three days ago.

    Me and dstacy are sitting in Houston Texas (Dave was the the Broken Spoke in Austin, that night too!) and we both have his phone number. He is texting to Dave as I think his strength and lucidity comes and goes.

    That's the Cliff's notes......sadly due to the construction $$$$ over runs, mistakes in engineering, all the costs that have disappeared into his garage Mahal, it seems the "go broke, then croak" may get reversed........I am glad at least this bozo architect was fired.

    I have a branch office there, but he has not asked for assistance, from me....
    We are oobviously rooting for him, and would help any way we could, his treatment in the "my cancer" thread is terrible to read.....
