      I think we're overdue for a thread to post or discuss the wonderful oddities and tragedies from Bring A Trailer .

      I'm also watching the e34 since mine is pretty similar. (except stanced according to Ross) There seems to be a steady stream of M5s M6s and 928s there.

      I keep an eye on all the vintage 4x4 stuff with thoughts of buying something out west and driving it home over a vacation and selling it.

      I tossed a few bids at this one but it went over what I was willing to spend.

      I love BaT, I've bid on a few cars and always enjoy the discussions. I'm watching this 57 MG right now because it's a great little British classic that can make the owner eligible for certain vintage rallies.

      I tent to watch early 996's in general, but this example caught my eye since it's painted in Obin Red. I mean, Arena Red

      http://bringatrailer.com/listing/200...911-carrera-2/




      Nice original finish except for the rear bumper, IMS bearing replaced, and recently reupholstered seats, and enough mileage that the car should be leak free without being too high at 75k. Looks like a nice example of the 996, interested to see what the transaction price will be.

      Excellent idea for a thread. I'm not watching or bidding on anything, but I am curious to see what treasures TCL bags on BaT.

      I bought a vehicle on BaT before. It was a great transaction and BaT had little to know involvement apart from being the platform.

      Buyer called within minutes of winning and was easy to work with. Doubt they all go that way.

      The one thing I love about BaT is that the peanut gallery does a great job of going over cars w/ a fine tooth comb.

      I've thought about listing my 996 on BAT. It's currently the cheapest C4 cab on autotrader and I haven't gotten any bites, but 996's seem to do fairly well on BAT.

      If this is the same Jeep that I am thinking of, it is a basketcase with nice paint on it.

      Well if you need to make some room in the stable, I'm more than happy to car sit for you. I've been needing a new weekend car since I sold the E9. SS just doesn't cut it for weekend car duties.

      I am going to T Hill west with the SS on Saturday. You should grab a toy and join.

      It looks pretty nice but the description lays it on a little too thick. That rear brake line is tight (may just be the angle) and captain rattle can had a go at the chassis.

      No-can-do this weekend. But May 7 I'll be at Sonoma Raceway with TMR.

      Don't worry, we will find a weekend soon for you to drive my silver V8 around Orinda-grizzly peak while I swap into your SS.

      Obin red is actually Orient Red.

      There was some talk about it online awhile back. It supposedly had some body/floor rot that was covered up in the listing.

      Oops. Well, it's FritteRed now anyway. And either color is more interesting than silver or grey.
