One of my Pictures is Being Used on the VFRD Calendar!

I’m excited to see that another picture I took earlier this year is being used for a club calendar! Here is Paul’s 1997 Honda VFR750 as submitted:

VFR at the Peak in front of the falls

And how it will appear in the calendar:

I’m very pleased to have made the cut and to have a second picture published this year!

The Kind of Ad That Talks You Into Buying: 2001 Porsche Boxster

I’ve been contemplating a Boxster again, especially with the panic sales popping up left and right. But then an example like this comes along, and I’m really inspired. The kind of complete listing that convinces you this one has had the extra attention. A description that is obviously enthusiast written. Pictures that are good but not overdone. And the car is flawlessly detailed.

This is the quality of car I want for my next purchase. Dear Santa…

Up for auction is this piece of treasure I’ve kept hidden away in my air conditioned garage. It’s a 1993 Ducati 888 and it is in excellent showroom condition. Purchased new and used only occasionally but I made it a ritual to always keep it running and in tune. The mileage is correct and is at a super showroom low of 712 miles. If you see the bike you will understand.

1977 Lotus Esprit S1: Nice Mileage, For Sale in Portland

Only 56k miles on this very early Lotus Esprit. Looks like a really fun car!

1977 LOTUS Esprit S1 on Portland Craigslist:

1977 Lotus Esprit S1 For Sale1977 Lotus Esprit S1 For Sale Interior

quote from CL posting:

Custom Connelly Leather and wood interior. New tires. 24 mpg 140 MPH. Manheim Gold Book says $17,000 for excellent. $13,000 for good. $25,000 for show. I think this is close to excellent. More than $35,000 invested. 56,000 miles
I will sell it this weekend to the best offer over $10,000

I had to check Wikipedia on the S1 to know all the specs on this car. Under 2200 pounds, 140hp engine, and mid-engined. What other exotic could you buy for $10k with these kinds of credentials and pedigree?

Ed, is this the same twin cam that was fitted to your Jensen?
