I chickened out and took the Cayenne (I remembered the R8 has the wrong tires on it for that sort of thing), but it did a good job. It really is a great bad weather car.
Kind of going back to the cheap exotic car thing I mentioned earlier, can you really buy a complete Ferrari for less than a used Fiesta? Yes, yes you can! Look and behold the, umm... magnificence. The great 1975 Ferrari
Dino 308 GT4, for $12,000 (includes freight).
Does it run? Yes, yes it does. It doesn't drive
, mind you, the gearbox is ruined, but the engine does run. The most important thing is that it's 100% complete and the interior isn't horribly mangled. We can fix all that's wrong and make it better than ever (for far more than the thing is worth) and that's what we're going to do. I'm sure the garage will love it (and by "love it" I mean hate it), what a wonderful surprise for them.
