It's spring.

The Mclaren is on e-bay and after looking at GTO's I went another direction.

I could not have worse timing for buying cars.

Now that CGT's have increased - figured it's time to grab one before they skyrocket.

Congratulation and think you are right on the CGTs.

Make sure yours has new rubber. Makes a huge difference in the handling.

The 355s and 360s have increased as well. I've kept my 355 driven everyday and serviced inside/out. I've been given 3 consignment quotes of 72. I can sell it and make even for another model. now is certainly the time to buy/sell.

355 love

I made a photo album of the exterior/interior and of a normal drive that she takes.

I'm drinking champagne.

CGT is the way to go for sure!

Old enough to know better, young enough to do it anyway!

Thanks and will do.

After seeing the auction results of Amelia Island I think buyers have no limits.

Ferrari's and Porsches went off the charts - autos went on average 25% above the range.

You are correct - it's safe to say no one cares about clutch wear or engine out service.

Sid - should have bought one years ago assume your uncle still has his.

So who closed the thread?

Could car less what others think of this place that are not here on a regular basis.

However I do care that we are not allowed an open debate.

Doug- Very pretty and should really scream.

Jimmy- I have to admit, two car garages are better than a carport.

Doug, Garage looks terrific (he says with more than a bit of envy). Glad to see you still have the CGT.

CGT - is a lifer it's key to get a good one with miles otherwise it's a 50k refresh.

Wow, looks very Spanish.

On the CGT, I am still looking for the right car at the right price. Did buy a 997 GT3 RS earlier this year as a first step back into the world of Porsche.
