Yesterday’s comments of note

A few of the comments that stood out to us yesterday:

One-Owner 2005 Aston Martin Vanquish S

“Best video on BAT.”

Euro 1993 Mercedes-Benz S600 Coupe

“Whoa, cool. Two things:

1) I know it’s a Euro-thing, but to see cloth seats in a car like this is about as unexpected an option as, say, a hand-stitched leather luggage set in a Hyundai Elantra.

2) I want to know more about that primitive text-only nav system! Without a map, how were directions displayed? Was it a voice guidance system?”

No Reserve: 1982 Porsche 911SC Targa

“Checking in to let potential bidders know I’ll be monitoring the site to field your questions and requests, and to offer the car for inspection in person or at any KC-metro shop you want to coordinate your own PPI through.

Thanks @Caymanorcarrera for the synopsis.

A little backstory on this car: I tried to buy it in 2004 but the stars didn’t align for me, I bought a BMW 325 and built it out for SpecE30 instead. The owner then was a long-time Porsche-file well-known in the local area and…”

We're Driving a Datsun 240Z Cross-Country to Road Atlanta For The Mitty!

“Good Morning BaT. Just read your story about the trip to Atlanta. So much better than turning on the news!

Unfortunately I just don’t have the time to do it this year and quite frankly I was not sure I wanted to drive my Z that far, even though I’m sure it would make it without any issues. Datsuns are so reliable as anyone who has owned one would attest. I just wanted…”

No Reserve: 1976 Fiat X1/9

“Beautiful! My first car was a 1974 X1/9 that I bought in 1981. Drove it for 4 years and about 30k miles and foolishly sold it to buy a rusty Alfetta GT. Mine was beige and I don’t think it was ever this clean. Drove it from Richmond, VA to Texas twice without a hitch. The timing belt always broke within a mile of home! The only upgrade I would consider would be to see if I could trade the big bumpers for the 1974 bumperettes.

The steering was so direct – you just pointed and went.
