Jan. 17 Weekly Open Thread
Apologies for the content blackout last week, everybody--I had a last-minute trip come up which disrupted my content schedule but that allowed me to come face-to-face with a ZL1 Camaro, a Yenko Chevelle, a couple of Ferrari Daytonas, and a Ferrari 275 GTB Spider. So that was fun.
We'll get back on track with Project AMC this week, but I wanted to give you a place for other, non-AMC-time-traveling conversation.
I do have a few notes on interesting things for sale:
- There is a 1986 Saab SPG for sale in Colorado; its owner reached out to me after reading my post fawning all over SPGs and it took me a week to finally decide that I can't swing a third lustable car in my fleet. It is located in Colorado, looks to be in excellent cosmetic and mechanical condition, and has 208K miles on it. It is listed for $2,500, which seems like a screaming deal. I'd like to see this one go to a good owner, so please drop me a line if you're interested and I'll connect you with the seller.
Bring a Trailer has something slightly less conventional but even cooler for sale--the entire Honda Proving Center complex in Bakersfield, Calif., is for sale. If you have the budget, you could own a 7.5-mile oval, a 4.5-mile winding road, and a variety of other test surfaces and off-road areas. I can't think of a better place for a Car Lust get-together.
