        I would buy and restore that, if I had the money. Old SLs are really high on my list these days.

          Talk about the find of the 21st century. That is truly epic and astonishing. I love those SL's and if I ever win the lotto jackpot with enough cash in the bank I would so buy one.

            And what the fuck is wrong with that? It's a god damn 300SL. In a barn. I don't care if it's pink, GIMMIE!

                  Yeah but by the books concourse restorations are always to the original spec, even if it's a color that is not as desirable. For my money though, blue looks the sex on almost any car way less plain than silver or red.

                    Yes, blue is underutilized.

                      And possibly a rare color for that model? Could bump the value up even more...

                        Not sure it is blue, could also be black & phone camera.

                        Then again...

                          I would have thought that after black and silver, blue was the most popular colour.



                          So pretty it hurts.

                                Knowing their trollness, they'll get me a 83 Civic that has been sitting in a garage since the early 90s.

                                  With any luck, it'll even be blue

                                    Just pray it is a low mileage rare JDM MUGEN MINE TYPE-R LIMITED BANZAI DORIFTO GODZILLA F-SPEC model and you could make a decent profit out of that.

                                    Around 300 USD, I guess.

                                        Oh yes, unmolested "classic ricer cars" are shooting up, see Golf 1 & 2 GTI for example.

                                        This one will shoot up like crazy too: http://www.nettiauto.com/opel/calibra/2577805
