Thanks for asking - the entire Fossett Absolute Land Speed Record project (complete car, spares, tools, custom transporter, etc) is still for sale.

The August ad we ran in Autoweek along with other media mentions / word of mouth have all generated renewed interest. Since late summer we have been in discussions with at least three serious parties.

Hope this info helps!

- Stuart

The car is now displayed in the Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum in Denver. I don't know if it is on loan or if the car was donated to the museum.

Why did Craig Breedlove sell the car?
What changes did Steve Fossett do to the car after he purchased it?
How much did Steve invest in it and what is it worth now?

Of course - there was Craig Breedlove's interview article in the latest Hot Rod.  He had a few comments about the potential of the car.

Here is that article: http://www.hotrod.com/news/craig-breedlove-americas-600-mph-man/

I spoke to a person who knows and he said the car was donated to the Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum in Denver, it is NOT for sale and will never race again.
