Someone please buy this:

I'll admit, the color is not my favorite. In fact, green is easily my least favorite E34 color (and yeah, mine was green). But whatever.

I'm newly obsessed with F355s, which of course coincides with a marked uptick in values - I need to time these things better.

I'm glad you posted this... I've been heavily obsessing over 2012ish Aston Martin V8 convertibles lately, but was embarrassed to post anything about it. I love the looks and the ability to get a real 6sp manual. I'm a solid year to 18 months away from being able to make the purchase, but it hasn't stopped me from daily searches. They seem to be at a good depreciation point where if you can get over the initial $ outlay they'd be a relatively inexpensive ownership experience for something that is pretty exotic. And did I mention I think they are absolutely beee u tif full.

This is the particular one that has me smitten at the moment:

I am also totally sold on the new v60 to replace the X5 around the same time period. I'm holding out hope the bring the t8 powertrain over, as it looks on paper to be the perfect hot wagon for my wife.

I went from having no plan for our future cars to having a very clear plan and no short term ability to execute

Pretty sweet. Not a fan of the dove gray, but the 6 speed is likely a huge improvement. As I say all the time though, these cars are too slow - Nick's yellow car is about perfect.

I predict $25k and I agree on power. Definitely not a bruiser but so engaging.

I remember getting around $18 for mine in 08 with about 76k on the clock.
