Ha, correct on the 348tb and M3. The Porsche is a 1980 that I built with my son 15 years ago. It is backdated with 73 parts and does have RS decals so a clone in that aspect, but a super light and fun car. 911 is the most fun to drive the Ferrari is just a different animal all together. I am partial to European cars.

Amazing. I've been a Porsche fanatic since the early 80's, used to work for Porsche (along with a slew of other exotic car shops) and have loved the 911RS since then so it caught my eye.

I've only ever seen maybe 2 or 3 ever in real life. Saw one in a parking lot in about 1987 at a grocery store I worked on and one at an Auto show 2 years ago.

Yep, 911s are scary fun to drive. Loud, obnoxious and the toughest of all exotic cars to drive but so rewarding. It's the automobile version of a bumble bee - it shouldn't work because of the way it's designed but it does!

The 348 is probably much more tame and balanced to drive.

The fender flares on the M3 were ground breaking at the time when that car came out. The Audi Turbo Quattro GT and the M3 had them and I used to dream about making my VW Scirocco looked flared out like those cars.

I almost bought an Audi Quattro GT back in the late 80's but I was a little too young and too poor to afford the $20K price tag back in the day.

Gorgeous cars that flooded me with memories and sent me back in time when I saw your avatar. Glad you're enjoying them with your son.

BTW, that AF #15 CGC 7.5 in the last Heritage auction went for a steal @ $156K. Someone is going to be very happy with that win.

Gorgeous book but the chipping and spine wear probably kept the price down a little.

Thank you, I have owned several 911's over the years. When they were not so expensive I had 3 at one time, I turned 16 in 1990 so you can see my taste in cars sorta stuck in that era. Loved the Quattro as well myself and had looked for one until they got insanely priced.

There is a huge variation in prices for chipping on this book. it's possible its even more of a factor than page quality. i for one, would buy a lesser quality PQ than one with chipping. thoughts?

Agree.  Lesser PQ (other than brittle) over MC every time.  As harsh as they are on some defects, I think they aren’t harsh enough on MC.

I hear you.

Simply put, MC = pieces missing from the book (regardless of how it occurred).
