      '88 Porsche 944 Turbo S

      "A/C" is listed - I assume it works. I also see some type of head unit.

      1991 Gulf Stream Toyota - $6000 (toronto )









      43k original KM. Clean. Non-smoker vehicle. No Leaks. Kept in covered parking. Winterized. Updated interior and more than $9k in updates. See details below!

      More than $9k in updates to this unit since my purchase in late August 2009. Many of these are major. Updates are listed below and records will be included with the sale, along with all Owner Manuals. I have put less than 3k miles on this unit since all these updates were completed. And unit has been in covered parking. They are like new!

      This "Winnie" has been pampered and kept in covered parking for the duration in which we have owned it, and prior according to the previous owner. It is a rare build from Gulf Stream motors. The interior is fresh and has been updated with old wallpaper taken down, cloth cover on the couch, floor tiles and stained kitchen table wood chairs. Many of the expensive mechanical and structural updates have been taken care of so you don't have to! Additionally, the unit has just been winterized, a new cab battery installed and added a new anode rod to the Hot Water Heater.

      This unit does not have a generator. The body is clean with no dents and no rust. There are a couple minor spots of rust on the wheel rims and decals are cracked. The paint is in good shape. The title is clear.

      Hmm. I need Level One Bullet Protection. And the V12 will get me away from the lightly armed terrorists or car jackers.

      It's only $7,749, so I have over $3k left over for the inevitable massive repair bills.

      I've purchased about 55 hours of time with a reasonably priced prostitute. I think I did the craigslist game wrong.
