    For 450K, I'd want it to at least be Z8 based!

    Otherwise it would be like buying a beautiful Singer 911 that was based on a Boxster :-)

    I'm so glad to hear you got a nice number for your car as it was a well presented beauty. I was worried watching it set at 150K for days and days and then I missed the last few hours. A nice finish...
