I don't think I have ever owned a grey/silver car. I am also not a big fan of pin-striping on my cars.

That said, anytime I see a nice, fancy pin-striping job it is usually black pin-striping on a grey/silver car

Nuts....

Just like my old 1987 420SEL...

That is - just as that car would have been in 1987. LOL

Damn... A time machine.
Red interior is a push for me, but.. what the hay. Awesome condition.

I love this comment:

Beautiful car and perfect color combo but you really canít expect people to bid on it if you only provide 360 pictures

What are you trying to hide?

I hope your son is OK with the results. Like a few of the comments said, I think this week's stock market/world turmoil is effecting a lot of potential bidders.

A lot of the auctions I have followed this week have been reserve not met

David's fine. We were communicating today as the auction closed. He's had a lot of fun buying, owning and selling that car. From the start, he hoped to break the 20K mark but really had zero expectations. Oh to be a 27 year old engineer at Apple making good money with zero debt.

I just noticed this. That car had option 425, the rear window wiper. That has to be a really uncommon option because I can't recall ever seeing a 911 with it until this one.

Or maybe I just don't notice details. Neat car, though.

yeah, I hear that

I read in the comments that BAT wants to do a follow up story on the purchase. That's cool too
