Well the opportunity came and went.
I go to work and I ask the guy what is going on with the car, let me take it for a ride etc....
And he says its gone. Apparently he went around to a few dealers and took the highest offer he could get for it asap. He ended up selling the car for the sub 8000 range, just because as he put it "it was time to go".
Oh well the search carries on.
Thanks for all the advice,
