I think that was the Benz in Gran Turismo 3 or 4 that was a total fucking blast to drive around the Ring. I think it was one of the license tests that needed a full lap under whatever time.

The 2.3-16 was never as good as the E30 M3, but it was a cool car for sure. And, unless things have changed recently (I haven't RTFA yet), they haven't exploded in price nearly as much.

Drool. Few cars have such beautiful proportions from the side (minus the wing). It's the golden rectangle of cars. Another that comes to mind is the 458. Beautiful silhouette.

Yup. The GT car was the full DTM race car, but yeah, one of the most fun GT cars to drive.

If anyone is interesting in a 25-year rule 190E 2.5-16 (2.5, but *not* Evo), let me know. A friend is importing one from Japan. Dog leg and 80k KILOMETERS. He's not looking for much for it.

I'm personally trying to resist the JZX81, which is a Toyota product that's actually interesting. (A RWD sedan with a manual and the 1JZ GTE...)

There is a fraction of a snowball's chance in hell I may be interested in one of those if I knew more about it - especially the price.

Similar chance of interest, depending on the price. What kind of ballpark is he in?

No, didn't get a chance to. Was having too much fun drinking beer and eating sausage in Over the Rhine.

Cincinnati is a cool place, actually.


Here's one for FC:
