A very honest (cosmetically beat up) 142S Coupe coupe with original CA blue plates and a San Francisco parking permit from 1997 still affixed to the trunk. I just love these old clunkers that someone has obviously loved and invested at one point in time and has managed to survive all these years. Makes absolutely no finance sense to restore but I wish someone will buy it and care for it a bit longer.

“I wish someone will buy it and care for it a bit longer.”

Never fear, that is happening, though the patina is slowly vanishing.

Nice, while restoring things isn’t financially efficient, it is a whole lot of fun.

Painting is the best part.
