The rumor I heard was that he had the 959 in the country for a while, and
then he had to export it out (or destroy it) because Uncle Sam wouldn't
let him. I hear there are (were) two legal 959 in the States -- one was
imported as a racer (forgot which race); another was by, um, I think a
diplomat or a car manufacturer. In the latter case, the 959 was allowed to
stay in the States for 1 year (or was that 2?) and had to be exported or
destroyed afterward.
