I am not sure why but no matter how I rotate the picture it always posts sideways.

But yes she was a beauty. 28k all original RS in paint to sample summer yellow.

Summer Yellow?

First real RS I have seen in that color. Sweet.

Thanks for the shots

You have good taste she was an outstanding example. I wouldn't hesitate to own something like that myself.

The price appreciation over the last few years is a double edged sword. Sure its helped the value of my cars, well maybe not my 76 Caddy Eldo vert, but the 911's and the Alfa's for sure. On the down side its pushed too many cars out of the hobby pricing and into prices that make them difficult to own and enjoy. These real euro 964 RS's are prime examples. At $100k to $125k I would sell my lot and buy one to have here. At $300k plus its not happening.

I had my eye on one of the ex US 964 Cup cars (the white ones). I followed it through the owner for a number of years. Could have bought it for $100k give or take a few times in the 2000's but things like kids and a divorce stopped me. Now forghettaboutit.

I agree with you 100%. I passed on my friends 94 turbo S flachbau for $130k back 6 or 7 years ago now they are trading for $1.5mm. Although a red not as nice RS sold recently for around $135k IIRC.

The 76 caddy was a great car last of the 8.2 liters. My grandfather had one in a rust orange color. You floated above the road surface. Even they are bringing more than MSRP.

The RS is a unique car so many differences over the C2's. I have a friend who owns a couple of the US Cup Cars one has about 6k miles on it. That is another league to itself. Not that long ago I would spend a lot of time on the track with a couple now you don't see them anymore.

I wouldn't mind having the 3.8RS in speed yellow either. This would make a fun street car. I am still a sucker for the widebody cars.

The 924 carrera GT was a great example as well. I remember going up against one at the Glen back in the mid 80's very capable cars and the precursor to the 944.

I am still partial to the 74 3.0RS. I had a clone built on a 79 SC using all factory parts and max moritz built engine. Had the proper flairs, bumper, fuchs and everything. Still one of the best driver cars I have owned. Can't keep them all.

"Can't keep them all"

Well said... my past is littered with cars I would like to own now but a long since gone.

I am a sucker for the big Caddy, shades on top down, pick a land mark and guide it down the freeway. Let the sails fill, rig the spinnaker and let that yacht glide down the road.

I just love the clean lines and the classic shape of the standard body 964's. Now I have an 88 G body coupe I am planning on cutting up to make something to suit my tastes.

I was able to do some early morning driving over the holiday weekend. Nothing like the cool air, open roads, and the sound of the car...

Why are there only 2 pages for this forum and all of the old posts gone?

I figured we need to resurrect this since it has vanished.

Finally have a chance to drive my track car. It has been in hibernation for a year. Just widened the front track by 30mm using 993 longitudinals in the turbo mounting points. I expect the turn in to be much better.
