The first new car I was able to buy after the IRS raked me over the coals post rock and roll days was one of these http://bringatrailer.com/listing/1984-dodge-charger/

But mine was black.

When ever torque steer is mentioned on this board, I think about driving this car

My sister had that car in Blue with the silver stripes ... that was a fun car ... I can't believe it had only 107 hp ... for some reason I thought it was more and had a turbo But then again at that time I was only 15 yrs old.

I think that is a typo. I thought it was 170hp, and it did have a turbo. they were pretty well known for their turbo failures

edit: yeah, that one doesn't have the turbo scoop (hump) on the hood either. 107 might be correct LOL

edit to edit, just checked wiki, 146 hp with the turbo

$59.XK with a few hours to go. I stand by my earlier appraisal. Beautiful 993.

Just look at the shifter area on this puppy http://bringatrailer.com/listing/199...-unimog-42720/

Have no need or use for this, but it would be cool to have parked in the yard

At this point, being already at $60, I am going to say closer to $70 with last minute bidding.

Edit: I am currently lusting after the banana yellow 04 6-spd Gallardo listing.

That gallardo jumped up quickly. For some reason I was thinking it would be cheaper
