Well maintained and non bastelter Porsche 928 from 2 Hand with H-plates. Alternator, control unit, timing belt, battery, tires, steering gear (and more) was renewed. No maintenance jam!

What caught my eye about this ad wasn't the fact this is a '78, nor that it's done in a boring shade copper brown metallic...it was the location chosen for the shoot. 

Had this car been shot in car park, or someone's driveway, it wouldn't have helped it's disposition. Look, the color is beautiful in person I'm sure, but when you're trying to unload a car with this sort of hue, it really needs an ambiance...like this one.

I have to say, whoever took the photographs really nailed it when he or she parked it over these moss-bordered cobble stones. To me, this setting reminds me of the promotional videos made for the 928 in the early years...opulence, classical architecture, grand entrance, you get where I'm going. This was exactly the clientele Porsche had in mind when it made the 928...the captains of industry, lords, deities.

But this is a car magazine, not Architectural Digest, or Fine Art. So here's what this car has that slides a hand down the front of my jeans and gives me a warm squeeze. 

A Pascha interior, near perfect paint, everything seems to be as it was when it left the factory, a very low mileage at 188,000km. But there's one more thing that tips the scales over to its favor...

Respect. This car looks like it got loads of it. At nearly USD$19,000, this is where the price should be for a 928 of this vintage that has been properly maintained, well looked after...loved. I know there are cars like this one on these shores, but more often than not, they're none the worse for wear. 

And while being the richest country in the world, our published contemporaries shamefully cough out numbers that are roughly half of what this one is going for...half. 

One magazine pegs the value of this car in "average to good condition with no repairs needed" at a pathetic USD$8-15,000 range. Just where is this respect that proliferates other Western European countries to be found on our shores? I dunno, but flüssig, Jim Doerr at 928 Classics, Roger Tyson and an army of other enthusiasts are helping change that..
