^^ Wow, Blue '82. Certainly one of the best examples around.

My dad's 1994 GTS with 39K miles.

Color is Arrow blue; believed to be the only U.S. Spec arrow blue 928.

Thanks. Yes, at 3,600 original miles, it is quite pristine.

The GTS looks stunning as well.

The interesting part of the story is I'm an offshore powerboat racing fan and know Charlie McCarthy!

My 88 when I was bringing it home. Lousy pic. My Merc is behind. I think my 89 pictures are too big not uploading.

I raced in the inaugural Cannonball (finished 3rd) but not in a 928. They hadn't been produced yet. However, I've had at least 1 or 2 in the stable since they rolled off the assembly line. We imported this 1985 928S Euro 5M (330 hp and one of the most desirable 928s) and federalized it at our dealership. Of over 50 cars I've owned, it has been one of my all-time favorites. But alas, too many cars and not enough garage space, so my better half has decreed that it has to go. Send a PM if any interest.

Two of my ex's.

Fairly early '87 S4 (old enough to have the flip up spoiler).

The genius of the 928 starts with the rear suspension.

Arrow Blue is one special car! She is in great hands as well.

928s had the most pleasing interior in the business, and are still comfortable and stylish today.
