LOL, I, along with all Brits, 'pay' for the BBC with our license fees, but now it seems we in the UK are not allowed to see what the BBC is saying overseas. Companies owned by the people are funny.

Awesome.  Does it come with his puke soaked into the carpet?

Nice car but too slow.  I suppose the buyer could probably pull the original engine and put in a 5.0 Ford or something else that's good.
 
2014-05-06 07:17:20 AM
It is so choice.
 
2014-05-06 07:22:25 AM
Haha.. yes, no reserve, all us common folk have a shot at it.
 
2014-05-06 07:24:47 AM
Who ?

I assume they've gutted the entire interior due to it reeking of cigarettes and vomit

Was the second owner John Voight?

Thank God it's not as wrecked as he is.

Hmm, Dino's are pretty hot now, so it will probably not add that much to the hammer price.

I'm betting in the $300K range.
 
2014-05-06 07:31:53 AM
No sir, not bidding. I don't want to be chased down the street by every drug-sniffing dog in the city. No matter how long it's been since Keith had it, that car is permeated with drugs in places far from a detailer's access.

We're sorry but this site is not accessible from the UK as it is part of our international service and is not funded by the licence fee. It is run commercially by BBC Worldwide, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the BBC, the profits made from it go back to BBC programme-makers to help fund great new BBC programmes.

So the UK isn`t a nation?

"The first of whom," subby. Even Keef is a whom, not a which.
 
2014-05-06 07:41:40 AM
No reserve, eh?  I'll go $500, more than that and someone else can have it.

shiat, let your attention span wander for just a few months...

Remember when they were $30K for a driver with good mechanicals.

Blame people like Murdoch and the Daily Mail. The BBC isn't allowed by law to use licence fee money overseas so must use advertising but then isn't allowed to use advertising within the UK so they can't let us see those sites. Thanks to people like Rupert and the DM the BBC had to slash its UK websites a few years ago because it was "unfair competition". Before then the UK site would buy lots of content from the overseas site to show in the UK but now they don't do anywhere near as much.

/Uses ZenMate for Chrome.
//Can view site happily.

You know what this means don't you?  It means there is too many self indulgent weeners in this town with too much bloody money!

DNA-certified puke, so you know it's not just commoner vomit.

Cold_Sassy: Thank God it's not as wrecked as he is.


Yeah, that Keith Richards is a drug-addled wreck. I mean, all he's managed to accomplish is a 50-year music career that's earned him and his band mates billions of dollars.

/In case you don't know; it's Keith's band; Mick Jagger is just the lead singer.

If only I was making money instead of being a starving student back in the late 90's... the classic car market was pretty much bottomed out then and I recall seeing more than one 246 selling for under $25K on eBay. Not to mention Maserati Ghiblis, Iso Grifos, Jensens... Used to spend my slack time at the Computing Services help desk trolling eBay, dreaming, and kicking myself for going back to school.

That would be a cool car to tow behind the tour bus once owned by Willie Nelson.

mexican bathtub cheese: A Dino isn't really a Ferrari.

Yes it is; it was just the short-lived brand name for Ferraris with fewer than 12 cylinders, until Ferrari decided to just start calling them Ferraris again. The 308GT4 was branded Dino for half its life, Ferrari for the second half.

The Dino 246 isn't just a real Ferrari; it's one of the greatest Ferraris of all time. Speed isn't everything.

A version of TFA appeared on TopGear.com, which means Clarkson almost certainly wrote it. You're not that far off.

I can't afford this car, but I'd gladly settle for a Dino 308 if anyone has one they don't want.
