While in SoCal a couple of weeks ago, I got to visit a private collection. The kicker? The guy who owns the collection actually drives the crap out of his beautiful collection. The owner has 3 mechanics working for him full-time. And they say money can't buy happiness . . .

And the guy posts a picture of one measly (gorgeous) 914. Ok, I'll bite. Where's the rest of the collection? :lol: The pink one is something I'd buy if I were filthy rich.
