So I was cruising along and I saw this gem parked on the side of the road. First you must understand that in my neck of the woods one never sees a pre 86 240, let alone a turbo. The pics don't do it justice, but it is a MINT with absolutely no rust 1983 Turbo, and only 76k miles! Perfect paint and perfect leather interior, and IIRC an M46. The owner was walking by as I was taking the pics and was quite surprised to be seeing double. It turns out he bought it brand new in '83, he put the car into storage in '84, and just took it back out a couple years ago. It was raining pretty hard so we didn't talk much, but tomorrow's gonna be nicer so I think ima go back and have a nice long chat with the gentleman.

Nice car and interesting story. When you see him again try to find out more background. Why did he buy it and then store it for so long? Why did he decide to get ot out again? Thanks.
