    Nope. I bought it and I don't really feel like sharing what I paid any more than what I have said already. But it was offered for sale at RM a few years ago and didn't meet the reserve so I'll share a link to that. It's in the same condition (well, they're doing a full service now as part of the sale) and the mileage is still the same.

    They only exist in Asia now, where they are quite popular.

    I would like to play super sleuth. If this is the BBi I think it is, and I would bet the farm that it is, I have seen this car on many occasions. Kurt truly did a bang up job on the restoration. He should be proud of his work. The past owner is an auto enthusiast. If anyone is curious about this BBi, go to Driving Emotions or just search the dupont Registry and you can see a full photo gallery. Congratulations Sherpa23 you got a great BBi, enjoy.

    It’s one of the best BBIs extant. Great color and interior.

    Wow, as I said in another thread.

    Black is the correct color for a Boxer!

    Black is awesome on a Boxer though there is no incorrect color!

    I agree with that. When you see some of the blues or the metallic burgundy of Peter's in Denmark, you see that different colors work on the Boxer incredibly well.

    I seriously considered a white one at one point and there was something interesting about a white boxer, even though white is not typically one of my preferred colors.

    Thanks, Pete. I figure if a Boxer is good enough for you for 20 years and two coasts, it's about time I pull the trigger on one and add it to my modest stable. :)

    FWIW, I looked at a ton of them and PPI'd a a few before striking gold with this one (including one at a very highly rated official Ferrari dealership). Just like Daytonas, it's hard to find a really nice, really well cared for Boxer these days. They're getting older and they're very engineered cars. There's a lot to keep up on. Many people don't. Finding a good Boxer today is harder than many think.

    agreed.
    its tough to find a well sorted boxer.

    a boxer is a super special car, but most do not realize it.
    its like having an original road going gt40 - it is set up like a race car, and did some track time in anger.

    you are a new member here and before you tell here something about a dead forum you better would introduce yourself here a little and fill out your profile. I think you will nowhere find a forum with so many technicians who help you here for free than at this forum here. you may read a little about all the problems the cars have

    I get what the new guy is saying, sites like this are for enthusiasts. Guys with mega collections don’t generally participate on enthusiast sites. You will see a lessening of forum traffic as a model goes from being “a cool older car” to “truly collectible” and enthusiasts get priced out.

    The wheels, wood steering wheel and body color rear clam shell covers may have scared a few people away. With Buyers premium, $250K?

    Do yourself a favor call Grundy, LOL.

    I left Hagerty after they raised their rates on me almost 100% several years back. I was with them for over 15 years with no claims. They gave no explanation.
