Thanks for the advice guys, I know things have changed over the years that's why I figured I should ask here. We just wanted to skip having the car under my ownership cause it's simply not worth the hassle. I'm not going to be actively pursuing a sale, but rather a facilitator when needed until he returns late next year. Duncan's suggestion is definitely useful, I don't want to deal with any legal repercussion for being a good friend, haha. I'll double check with authoritative source before I go ahead. Anyways, thanks again everyone, I have the car in my possession and it reminds me dearly how much I love driving manual.
