It’s a big boy. 5.44 meters long with the long bed. Oh, we talk about 10t€ now. I think it is pretty cheap for an good but older restauration, which is driveable and nothing to work on it by now. They will fix the breaks up, i have to do the technical inspection which you need here in Germany, but i think that’s no problem. The problem is, that we have no market for that car here in germany. If i buy it, i have to keep it. It’s nearly unpossible to sell. I don’t want to sell it by now, but when i keep it some years and i maybe need then the money or so, i can’t sell in time, also when it’s cheap. They try to sell about one year ago now, but there is nearly no interest in the german classic car scene… The second thing is, that i can’t drive it that way it is on longer distances, because it’s too slow for germany. If i want to go on longer distance driving without any risk here in germany, i must be able to do between 100 and 120 km/h. Otherwise it is really no fun… I think it would be only a “collectors buy” and it would be nice to have the big boy here, but it would be not very much driving fun the way it is… Sure, i could put an other differencial in, do an overhaul on the 308 and the hydramatic and build it in, but when i add that all, it comes too expensive for me…

I think, i have to sleep it over another time…
