I sold 2216T ("Kermit") in 2010. I sold the car to a dealer and he subsequently sold it to a collector. I have no idea who now owns the car or where it is. I was sorry to see the car leave the vintage racing scene. It was extremely quick only the Porsche 911's (and not all of those) were faster. Unfortunately, the economics of retirement do not support racing.
