    I’d like to say that with falls cooler temperatures people would come to their senses but probably not so I’ll guess high at 26k.

    Another very clean GP, but man... you can get a clean face-lifted R53 for a fraction of that and have lots of fun modding and driving without ever having a second thought about 'destroying a classic.' I couldn't bring myself to buy one when I went looking for my R53 for that very reason. I knew that I'd wanna mod it and it just wouldn't feel right. I get people wanting one. I've driven one. I just don't think I could do it (well... maybe if I had unlimited funds and another R53 in the garage to play with).

    FYI: I love my red space cloth seats. They clean up spectacularly, but a friend of mine in Texas had an upholstery shop swap the cloth in his GP seats with perforated grey leather, which looked beautiful and really dressed up the interior (Again... a stealthy, tasteful mod, but did he 'destroy a classic' by doing it?)

    $20,100 with 2 1/2 hours to go. This will go up if there are 2 or more who really want it. I think the trick to get crazy money is to take 20 pictures of a paint depth gauge all over the car. Subliminal "collector car" message.

    Looks like there are 3 bidders who want this GP. I think if it doesn't go higher it won't meet the reserve.

    Wow almost 27 grand for an original GP. I highly doubt any GP 2 or 3 will go for that used.
