Rare 914 items posted on ebay!

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1852492128

I e-mailed the seller and asked him what was rare about the car. He said it was because it was a 1975 and there aren't many on the road. Maybe it includes a lot of rare rust (see pictures)

Are cars must be worth a fortune of they are so rare!

I saw that ad. I was going to post something here but I've ragged on enough cars. At least he was pretty honest about how poor the car's condition is. Rare? Yup. Rust. Fine German rust....

Only rusting in the brain. Lotta sag in the body though. Guess I'll have to go thru a restoration soon - my pass window won't go to the top when I'm sitting

Sagging? Maybe you need Dave's "Big Butt" test!

Don't need Dave. I married a small one, but it got bigger and sat on me - now I sag.

One drum roll for the gentleman in the front row! Tonight's your night.
