Hmm... Never stop at a used car dealer was created by martinss
I was going thru a local town recently and saw a 928S for sale in a used car lot, so of course I had to stop. An interesting car - a 1985 Euro. In fact it apparently was in Japan at one point. The thing that caught my eye was the odometer - 52,000 km! About 30,000 miles. It looks genuine as the trip meter is not at 000.

The car looks like it sat for a while and they've replaced relays and a window switch. The console side panels are dropped and the passenger footwell tray is in the hatch. And he wants way too much for it - but has had it for 3 months...

It is listed online: www.carpages.ca/used/1985/Porsche/928/Bolton/Ontario/961281

Gold with chocolate interior, with cloth inserts that are brown with pinstripes. Dash and pod with smallish cracks, but no distortion.

I was short of time, so didn't pop the hood, get the VIN, take it for a drive, etc. But doubtless I will if it stays there much longer...

Maybe James wants one like this for his collection that he plans to start in Canada :D

Those panels remained standard in Euros of that age unless they had an optional upgraded stereo - another 'mark' of authenticity.

But I agree, it'll be a hard sell.
