Wow, does that ever bring back some memories, all of them bad. I remember the Quattroportes of that era, I’ve been blocking this for decades. I turned 16 in 1985 and went car shopping for realsies the first time, and I remember seeing dozens of these dogs in the classifieds at the time for crazy low prices, $1,500 or Read more
