I would be absolutely terrified if someone drove that M1 without changing the tires. If it does have the original tires those things are going to be super fucking dangerous to drive on. If it is just a garage / display queen fine but if someone wants to actually drive it they really need to change those tires.

I was thinking the same thing when I read the ad. Having driven quite a few cars on VERY old tires, I can attest to the dangers of hardened tread and deteriorated sidewalls... On most cars, I'd just suggest that the new owner buy a second set of wheels and keep the original tire/wheel combo for display, BUT... how easy would it be to find a set of M1 wheels? (Although I'm sure one of you enterprising internet-searchers will find a set for sale...)

On a high(er) performance car this is increasingly true. Old tires helped kill Paul Walker. The idiot behind the wheel did not help either.

So a Ferrari Testarossa raped an Esprit Turbo and this was the result? Rare it may be but it is truly hideous.

FTFY!

i kind of like it, but probably only because it's rare and i've never seen it before.
show it to me 20 more times, and i'm sure it'll make me puke...

I dunno, it's sorta 80'stacular, hate the rear lights so far in the middle, but apart from that it looks like it belongs in an old cartoon, I think I like it.
