Another Garage Queen.....

OK, which one of you owns this 1987 Queen? Pristine, less than 8000 miles, for a bargain $85,000. And to think my '87 sold new for $56,000. I imagine that there is a small....very very small....market of buyers for queens such as this, but not lurking on these forums.
I would be afraid to start or drive the thing. Probably leak like a sieve in short order, rubber hoses turn to dust, bearings seize up, stuff like that...assuming the fuel even makes it past the injectors. Wasn't much reference to how often she was exercised.
Keep it up, boost the value of our cars to the stratosphere.

Very nice. My queen is less pristine, 23,000 miles. I do have a friend who's '89 queen is practically a virgin with only 1,400 miles.

That's cool, we're all uniquely driven as to why we buy these cars. I was all of 34 years old when my car hit the sales lot back in '87, and had to wait another 16 years before I felt I could part with discretionary money just because I wanted to.

I would love the chance to compare mine against a queen; yours, or your friend's at only 1400 miles! Mine is in excellent condition with many times more miles on it, but over the years we tend to ignore the minor flaws. I would bet the queens are a real eye opener.

I always thought a garage queen was a closet cross dresser.

I think this " It only has XXX miles on it " Must be another one of those
my dick is bigger than your's thing.

Just take that bad boy out and "DRIVE IT LIKE YOU STOLE IT"

Amen, bro'!

Something I've always pondered and feel now compelled to ask: Is it true that protective bra's are mandatory on the queens, especially when she starts to sag some from the years...hmmm. My "driver" has a clear bra, let's her smooth skin and pirkey sensuous body parts show through.

The "Old Sled" has always gone bra less. They're way past sag and gone to drag,
even run over them every once in a while.

Very true Tug. Plus I admit I would love to bolt on some of the mods you have and more. But for now it is a weekend driver then right back in the garage. Hey I have put over 1,200 miles since I bought it. That was a good show, hope to see you around soon. The guy I was with who had the 993 turbo S also has that virgin '89 930.

Garage queen

Did that car come with 12 way heated seats in 87? They look like 964 seats
