Somebody else's turn.

1983 Porsche 944 5-speed, $2011. Dark red with brown interior. Broken odometer reads 41435. Previous owner told me that was accurate, but no documentation to prove it either way. Solid car. To be honest, it photographs better than it looks up close.
Previous owner broke the timing belt. We pulled the head, replaced all 8 valves, surfaced the head (minimal cut), and put it back together with fresh gaskets and timing belts. Currently sitting on Star Specs, but at this price it would be on all season radials. Cash is king, but may trade for a sedan for winter use of similar or less value.

The pics pretty much tell the story: photobucket link

Also listed on RJ and CL if you'd prefer to contact me that way.

Rub some Vaseline into the dull black spokes of those wheels and you'll be shocked at how nice they turn out.

I still have this car. Open to offers. Trades still possible for cars under 150K miles. No need for bikes, boats, trucks or campers.

In reply to Spinout007:

Winona, MN (SE corner). Runs and drives fine. Drove it today. No major bouncing or banging. Shocks feel pretty squishy, but they still have shiny black paint on them. We autocrossed it a couple of times. Lots of body roll. If I had more time and space, I think it would be a fun track day car. We just had kid #4 though, so track days are years away for me.

Sold locally today. I have a bright red driver's door (shell only) and a bright red right headlight "skin" if anyone is in need. Erik
