My wife had to hold me down...literally. First, I jumped up out of my chair, then I reached for the wine bottle like a madman and took a good long pull. When I felt my blood pumping through me in huge spurts I decided to compose myself before I really lost control...not since acquiring our own early 928 did I get such a boner for an OB.
Look at this baby. It's nearly perfect considering its age and mileage. No sunroof, a 5-speed gearbox, and a lovely Pascha interior in with warm brown and beige pigments. I think, if the ad turns out to be honest and the car isn't a dolled-up wreck, that nearly twenty-six grand is a fair premium to pay for an example like this...the only thing stopping me from totally loving this car is that I'd have to commit driving on the right side of the road with the controls on the wrong side to enjoy it.highball!
