Just looks out of place.

The old one (as is in the BaT auction now) - Awesome. Perfect....
Kevin, ever see a black one in your area? I used to see it regularly in Monroe, Snohomish and Lake Stevens. Saw it at Bickford a couple of times too, I think it was sold there. I drove behind it once on Rt 2 in my S4. . .it was/is ridiculously wide

I used to see it every so often... Not so much anymore.

I think it was in the showroom at Bickford for a while (if it is the same one).

Interesting. I'll have to follow this one. Love the color.

No radio headunit is fitted, though the cars were equipped with speakers and radio wiring.
headunit weigh maybe 1 pound? seems a bit silly not to include since everything else is there

Holy sheet. With well over six days to go, it's already about to hit $110. I think $120 is too conservative.

While, on one hand, it's incredibly sad that this car has never been wrung out the way it was designed, it's also pretty amazing to come across a 100-mile example of a 1-in-125 car from 22 years ago. Anyone who could buy this car, most certainly has other cars that they might be more willing to actually drive.

Just saying, I wouldn't trade.
