    I've had a German car: Opel Rallye. Only three main bearings (!) but it got me through grad school and the first few years at UF as a prof. Many long drives in it. Sold my Fiat 1500 Cabriolet (too finicky) to buy it.

    In 1985 I bought my only new car: VW Jetta, 5-speed, sunroof, alloy wheels. Nice driving car, but the sun roof leaked and it was noisy on the road.

    I have attended football games in Florida Field in 8 different decades and in a year and a half from now ( in 2020) I hope to extend that to 9 different decades! Saw my first game in the late 40’s versus Furman.

    Wow!!!! No offense to the prior posts but yours may be the most outstanding of this thread. Thank you for joining us and for sharing that achievement with us!

    And may I say, you are truly a grand old Gator! I hope you’ll take that in the spirit with which it is intended because I mean it as the most sincere compliment.

    I have tremendous respect and admiration for anyone with such dogged dedication to our beloved Gators football team. They’re sometimes so difficult to love. :rolleyes:

    So cool! Always wanted one of those!

    You need a plate for the front which reads: "Conserve Water - Drink Wine!"

    :D

    My buddy was playing drums in a band outside some frat house and I got drunk and urinated off the stage between sets.

    Yeah, but just based on versatility... I’d start with shrimp. I see a lot of potential there.

    Uh oh....*someone's* been looking at old tubs...bwaahahaa!

    You know that's not a bad price considering what that car will be worth one day in the not too distant future.

    I'm full up at this time though. In fact, have been thinking of cutting the 914 loose, just to reduce maintenance footprint.

    Did I tell you I also have 5 motorcycles? :emoji_confounded:

    Ha. I wish I was looking for something in that price range. I was actually looking for a 944 Turbo and that one popped up. A beautiful car though. If you decide to unload the 914 shoot me a Pm!

    I have gazed at the moons of Orion's Belt, witnessed the explosion of
    the Crab Nebula, crossed the ephemeral plain of the Milky Way Galaxy.

    But nothing compares to watching Larry Ochab in 79...………..
