I think it's a great place to learn a lot about a wide variety of interesting cars you don't already know. I've never been a buyer or seller (though I have bid on several occasions), but I enjoy the...

I'm impressed. This was a very clean car from a desirable model year, but I can't imagine brown on brown being anyone's dream color scheme. And I'm a daily coffee drinker in the PNW.

My 348 had sticky trim pieces like all of them have or will have. I removed the trim, cleaned off the goo with alcohol (there are many DIY threads about this), then resprayed them with a satin black...

"Much better" the way the 964, and 993 are compared to the earlier models. But people still gravitate to the earlier years for good reason. Same with Ferraris.

Steering on these is legendary. Very quick with incredible feedback. Lively is a good term. Very much a driver's car. Those accustomed to regular cars and power assist may find it darty or...

I remember in the early 00's when a couple of Bay Area lawyers spent about $70K on modding/track-prepping their SCs, and it turned into a multi-page full spread article in Excellence magazine. Then...

Huh? They had a Honda S2000 that was advertised as having a minor fender bender, but clean Carfax, including all repair invoices. I discovered and posted that there was a line item in one of the...

Too much emphasis on documentation. Compression gauge, paint meter, careful look and test drive will tell you everything you need to know. Assuming, you know what to look for.

Beautiful car, fair price. From what I can see, it needs a $7 ignition switch bezel (or paint it yourself with SEM trim paint), and a stock shifter knob.

That bezel is a pet peeve of mine on...

CA car is a benefit from the corrosion standpoint as already extensively discussed. Also good for keeping engines closer to stock if its newer than '75.

I'm shocked by the depth of Bondo used. I'd expect to see some chickenwire used as underlayment to hold it together.
