Old listing, this car is probably already sold, makes good reading. An S2 with nice upgrades and reference info.

That use to be my car. I purchased it used in 1977. Painted it in 1980. Best paint job of any car I ever owned. Sold it to Tom in Canada. Car sold and I heard it went back to the UK but not entirely sure. I should have kept that one.

Not sure if that $48,000 is US or Canadian, if the latter that is only $36,000. The car is clearly worth that.

Funny how the Canadian currency has collapsed against the US $, in January 2013 the 2 currencies were at parity.

Canadian currency is strongly correlated to the price of oil. Now's your chance to buy interesting cars in Canada at a significant discount.
