Default Gettin rid of a few beaters...anyone got some spare cash?

Just kidding about the "beater" part...and the "cash" part too. Bank checks only. I get to stare at these all day (they are parked indoors on the other side of my office window, next to a Busch-series Cup car).

Man those have a sweet retro sort of look. I'll have to admit it on this one, I've never seen pictures or writeups on the Z8.
Seing how it is a "8" series does that mean its over 100k?

Edit: I looked Red = $119k

I just asked...both cars are already sold. Crazy.

These things look sick with the hardtops on too.

I've never been in them, I wish though. I've been here less than a year; I'm not buddy buddy with the owner yet.

A buddy had a black one when they first came out, he took me for a ride and it was not very fast. A Dinan chipped M Roadster is about as fast for 1/3 of the money.

I don't like the way they look too much - just saw one in person recently ... overpriced I guess but still quite unique.

i drove the BMW Z8 at Streets of Willows few years ago... it's a awesome car. it's a pig compare to Miata at ~3300 lbs but if you think about it it's got M5 power but with like 700 lbs less weight... it's pretty damn sweet. super classy car and it's very rare you don't see it hardly ever. great car IMO. new they were overpriced but if used one is a good deal... it's worth considering.
