    What is the deal with the '95 F355B that Park Place has? It has been sitting there for a long time, but I haven't personally gone to check it out. Sure, the price may be high for the mileage, but you would think that eventually SOMEONE would buy it!

    So, what's the problem? Does it have issues? Does anyone here have the inside scoop?

    Sorry, Dave, but I still like those '95s! :)

    I am assuming you're referring to the giallo 355? If so, I have looked at it and driven it. Cosmetically it is in fair shape, but unfortunately it has the "sticky" throttle syndrome, causing the car to lurch foward, especially in first gear. There were NO service records available which IMO, is a bad sign. BTW, vehicle is on consignment and the owner was a neighbor of a fellow Fchatter. They are asking way too much for that car.

    Thanks, Andrew. yeah, that's the one. No records is definitely a bad sign. did you ever try to contact the neighbor to find out about service? Any clue as to whether the 30k has been done? Thanks for your input.

    Dave, sent you an email.

    Apparently the owner moved back to his native country and enlisted another family member to consign the vehicle at Park Place. Unfortunately, the car is lacking ANY and ALL service records, so I'm not sure if ANY of the services have been completed. PP is going to have a difficult time asking that much coin for a car that is nearly 10 years old, notorious for a laundry list of problems, and with no records.

    Ouch, that's definitely going to be a tough sell. Thanks again for your input on it.

    I wonder how long they're going to let it sit, or if they just want to use it as window dressing to draw customers in...

    Hi guys,

    The 95 355 did recently sell to a local gentleman, the website has not been updated yet.

    Really? do you have any more details? I would love to know how much they were able to sell it for.

    Actually, come to think of it, I believe I saw the new owner driving it last week in Kirkland. My "spotting" is referenced in the spotter's thread.

    The 355 sold for $76,500 the original asking price was $83,950 then the owner lowered his net. The new owner traded a 92 NSX for the 355.

    Wow, that's a lot of money for this car. However, I hope it holds up well for the new owner, and that he finds many years of trouble-free enjoyement.

    $76.5k is what was listed on Park Place's website as the asking price. I somehow doubt the buyer paid that and didn't dicker on a car with NO records.
