That car needs a short pier and Tom Cruise.

Understeer: You will hit the wall with the front end.
Oversteer: You will hit the wall with the rear end.
Horsepower: How hard you will hit the wall.
Torque: How far you will move the wall.

I read somewhere that 90% of all 928's ever built are still out on the road.......the rest made it home under their own power. :mrgreen:

Heh. Nice.

Thinking I will go with the new Liquimoly stuff next oil change. I like the specific mention of "high shear stability." I think the UV thing is a little gimmicky though.

Well, it looks like my old ‘99 C4 aero is up for sale again, but this time the asking price has risen from $16,500 (last summer) to $19,999.

https://kansascity.craigslist.org/cto/d ... 84617.html

So, I guess a flipper bought it. As a data point, I paid $18,000 for it in 2013 and sold it 2 years, 15,000 miles and a hail damage claim (repaired) later for $15,750. Since I netted over $2,000 on the hail damage claim (thanks to my buddy at “The Dent Team”) and had minimal maintenance costs and sold it without trying, I felt pretty happy about the deal.

So this is the infamous car you were supposed to offer to a forum friend that you didn't...right?
