I told my wife that I’m happy this car is not convenient to us because if it were I would seriously consider its purchase.

Good point! These engines also have more vacuum hoses than you can shake a stick at. Those can drive you nuts trying to find a leak.

Sadly no info in the EXIF to show what sort of camera took these fine photos. Still, feels very appropriate for the era of car. Now if you’ll excuse me I have some Whitesnake to listen to.

I think that the consideration that the DB7 hasn’t aged well should be taken in light of its comparison to contemporary analogs where it does seem somewhat dumpy and derivative. I still aver that time will be kind to the model, especially the more attractive drop top and opinions will mellow on it with time.

Hey, if you can find a way to monetize any sort of short-term fashion trend, I say take the shot. I kind of wish I had the foresight to get in on the bong bandwagon when they legalized pot here in California. Sadly I’m always a day late on such fads.

I think it really depends on how much loose change there is between the seat cushions and under the floor mats. That can really make or break a deal.

Yes about Touch of Grey. That’s while I conditioned the reference with ‘best known.’ I’ll bet few people these days even remember Touch of Grey, but can still hum the Truckin’ melody.

I’m going to have to say that, sketchy provenance or not, you’ll probably never lose money on this car.

You mean across Arizona in August with no A/C? Why do you hate me?

The thing is, I live in Southern California and the selection of cars out here is robust enough that I don’t need to seriously consider trekking to Texas to grab up a deal. Someone among us should buy that beauty, however.

Mine did. Actually, mine was a bit worse since the original beige driver’s seat had been replaced by an oak colored one some time before my purchase of the car.

The trick is to have the S-spec supercharger added at the same time. That requires a new clutch and flywheel anyway so you for about six-grand more than just the clutch you get both that new clutch and a ton more ponies. Win-win!

It depends on “how expired” the tags are. There’s a pretty good overview here.

I live in California and own seven registered cars, so I’m pretty well versed on the tagging, but I can see the confusion.

Wow, am I the only one who thinks this car is balls-out amazing?
