944 Turbo Sold at Barrett-Jackson Today

Anyone else heading out to Scottsdale this weekend for Barrett-Jackson?  I'm heading out Friday morning for the weekend.  They sold a 86 944 Turbo today..... it was a strange color combination of Crystal Green Metallic with a burgundy interior.  Only brought $12,100 at the hammer.  If it was solid mechanically, that was probably a good buy for someone.  $13,400 all in isn't bad.  The pictures look like it was really nice.

I was there last year and wish I could be this year too. I'll probably go to Chicago Mecum in October. Hope you have fun, and while you're there buy yourself something nice!  Grin

So I had a chance to look-over the turbo at Barrett Jackson.  It sold at the hammer for 11,100.  The paint on the hood was significantly oxidized and the headlights were stuck half up/down.  It had a door ding in the passenger rear.  The dash had the expected crack and the interior was a bit worn, but it was an interesting color combo and if it was mechanically sound, was probably a good buy.

Here are the two pics I took of the car when I saw it at the auction.  I was looking at pictures on my phone this morning and forgot I snapped these two.  Posting them just as a FYI.  I think this is a interesting color combination.  KB

Someone put the rear wiper on in the wrong position (like an SUV rather than a hatchback).

I noticed that too. I had to quickly look away before my OCD kicked in.  Cheesy

I was more freaked-out by the headlights being half way up/down..... lol.

Speaking of turbos, did you hear that Seinfeld bought a 20K mile turbo as well as a cab S2 recently?  I haven't seen anything about whether it was for pleasure, investing, or collecting.

Check out "Spike's Car Radio" podcast.  Spike used to be a writer for Seinfeld and he's the guy who had the "Car Matchmaker" show on Esquire network (RIP).

Anyway, he's done at least two episodes where they talk about Seinfeld buying 944s and Seinfeld calls in and relays his experience about them in the episode entitled "Earth, Wind, and Fire".
