according to the text this car was in Australia now back in UK.... epic car in an epic colour combo. Looks original and unmolested.

Their blue chip stock list is rather impressive at the moment too...

Plenty of Carrera RS's on the market because of the astronomical prices they are getting. One sold on the weekend at Artcuriel's auction at the Le Mans Classic plus they achieved ridiculous prices for other 911s. Maxted-Page seem to add a new Carrera RS to the market each week. Bonhams are offering a unique 2.7 Carrera RS at Pebble, Meecum have two 2.7 Carrera RSs, Gooding have a 3.0 (which is what I prefer). 993 Carrera RS prices have gone completely bonkers overseas as have 911 Speedsters.

Just wait, what goes too far up always comes back down again. Bust follows Boom every time !

Lets hope so, although, I presume a bust will only come when the rest of the economy tanks as well...

But I'm trying to  restructure my investments to minimise the risk :-)

Plenty of people that held on to their money because of the GFC have started to hit the YOLO zone and are buying whatever toys they want. Collectors will pay whatever they want for collector cars because they aren't about driving the car. If you wanted to experience a 1973 2.7 RS as a drivers car, you'd buy one of the race prepared road cars that are always on the market for $60-100k or buy a Singer.
