TR in my little town!

This evening I was scrolling through my local Craigslist as I usually do. After running through my normal searches I figured I'd search for Ferraris. Only 2 came up: 99 360 about 2:30 hours north from my house and a 86 testarosa. 1986 Ferrari Testarosa
Not only was it close but, its in my home town of Tumwater! What are the odds of that?! I'm contiplating contacting him and asking if he would let me come over and look just for fun.

Anyway, felt as though it was worth sharing.

It's always interesting when something like that pops up. Looks like a nice car, although he's asking top dollar IMHO for a TR.

Agreed. Seems to be at the highest point of high.

So which is it, 35000 miles or 52000 miles?


He must be one of those people who think single mirror TR's are going to be a highly sought after collector's item.


And F1 wheels?


I can tell a salesman sold him on how many ways this car was more special than your average TR.

I agree Brian, nothing really adds up.

Guys, just my opinion but I think this car is not too expensive. Asking price is in the ball park for a single Mirror car in good condition. May not sell at this price but many are asking in that price range for them. Some of the very nice exemple of TR are selling over $100K lately.

One 1987 with 5000 miles black/tan was asking $135K(160K at first) and sold for a tad Under that price.

Market is moving up a bit I guess.

When I priced it out I took in other factors like: Why does it give 2 different mileages, what are F1 wheels and in general why so little info? All these things bring up red flags. Let's say your looking at a 1 year old 458, it gives you the same info. Wouldn't you be a little skeptical? If i were buying it in the dark I sure wouldn't pay top dollar (or close enough) for what ends up to be a POC.

Some sellers are just not TEXT type persons and prefer to give minimum and let the real buyers ask for proper questions. A buyer should do his homework before buying.
Also a asking price is only a asking price. My TR was advertised at mid 60s by two consingment dealers and I paid very close to 50 from the owner.

Agreed. But IMO, it shows a lack of effort. Another 20 minutes typing doesn't hurt.

That's how I feel as well. At least post some decent pics taken with something besides a cell phone.
