• Wouldn't buy at half the price. That said, it's probably the nicest one I've ever seen.

    I always liked these, it's like a poor/drug addled man's Daytona.

  • what if was the version that came with this awesome oval steering wheel?

  • Okay, beautiful design, wonderful '70s period-piece design and engineering.

    Bumpers and headlights are the suxx. Plan on some shipping charges from the UK for the good stuff.

    It's fascinating as all hell, though, and I know guys who can build 5-liter-plus Rover motors ('infamous', my ass) that'd give an M5 fits.

  • This all brings to mind another question: the SD1 was always a little too gimmicky for me, attractive but not warm, an East Bloc supermodel who's only in it for the money.

    The earlier P6, on the other hand, has all the appropriate walnut-dash Olde Englishe the-worlde-endeth-in-1964-and-we-needeth-not-go-further warmth associated with a country where at that time people were still feeding coins into their gas heaters so they didn't freeze at night.

    So…are there any P6 3500s worth buying left in the US, and if so is it possible to keep one running? 'Cause a P6 with a 325HP 5.3-liter motor could be a hell of a ride.

  • There was a P5 for sale up here in Anchorage a few years back that I'm still kinda kicking myself for not jumping on top of. Just like the Saab 96 project that's listed for $1200 and change – but I feel as though I've got too many project going on right now as is. Sigh.

    • there's a P5 for sale 10 miles up the road from me at the moment – red – i should fire up the X-34 and go snap some photos
