Default 993s FS in Texas

I know nothing about this guy, but just ran across this listing. He is close to my house, so I can check him out if anyone on RL is interested in one of his cars.

No affiliation...

That's Marc Wein of International Sports Cars. He has quite the collection, and has for quite some time. Some folks here have had dealings with him and might be able to provide some info. I'm pretty familiar with his selection of cars, as it has not changed much in the past 2 or so years.

I like the Zenith Blue one, but $77.5??? Makes RPM look positively "reasonable."

Sounds like there is a reason these cars have not sold in two years.

Asking price is $55,000 and $77,500 respectively. Still interested? If so contact me by email and we can discuss details.

This Marc Wein? He's been busy since he got out of prison.

This guy has been nagging a friend of mine about purchasing his C2S. Maybe if he sells enough cars he can pay off his $2M in restitution.

Gotta be proud-Texans don't do anything in a small way. Either prices on Porsches or dealing with the SEC.

Reminds me of a certain Lyle Lovett song (trivia, anyone?)
