I'd buy it if I wasn't already thinking about selling some cars.

1974 Vespa 150 Super

Just like my first bike, and the price is way better than what I paid for my 59 150 gs.

I disagree. I much prefer the older body style (what!? No way!).


Also, Logan, I was mulling over that Honda for longer than I should have, haha.

Hmm, I wonder why the posting was flagged. I had seen it before, and stumbled across it today searching for something else.

I'd keep an eye out, as it might come up again. The posting seemed legit, and the car was pretty clean with a few minor character flaws. Cute little bugger...

wow, pretty cheap so far! Looks like she's in good shape, but I don't trust that paint, doesn't look original.

You no buy! 11 hours 58 mins in current traffic one way is too far for me to drive!

You buy Assorted hand tools. I already have Assorted hand tools. Certainly unsorted.

Ya... boxes and boxes of tools I have. A decent bandsaw and press, not so much.

And I did that trip in one day in a 46yr old truck with 4 wheel drum brakes with 1000 lbs of crap in it and towing a car trailer (with my Miata on it) with no trailer brakes. It's a cinch in your Audi... ;)

I think your continuous near death experience (also known as driving an International Travelall ;) ) sharpened your focus and made the passage of time irrelevant. I would require a rest stop of a few hours or days, possibly among the bars on the main square in Arcata.

I've been driving the Trav for 12 years now... I'm death-proof! And I had a rest stop about every 280 miles for gas.

LT1 swapped Volvo 740 wagon: http://sfbay.craigslist.org/eby/cto/4090739557.html

Someone buy it before I am overly tempted... It's not without issues though. The seller says it's burning oil and didn't pass smog. Suspected valve seals.

I'm tempted to buy something stupid like this for cheap so I can flog it around while selling the BMW to fund the GTO's needs. This probably isn't a good candidate since it needs work, but I've seen some other tempting cheap vehicles.
