Porsche has never been shy about celebrating or commemorating its achievements through special edition models of the 911. So, when they wanted to celebrate and honor the achievements of the Motorsport department, the choice was obvious and the Weissach Edition 911 was released in 1980. Based off of a standard 911SC Coupe, the Weissach Edition came in either a Black or Platinum Metallic exterior with Platinum painted Fuchs wheels all surrounding a Doric Gray leather interior contrasted by Burgundy carpeting. Each car would also come standard with a whale tail, but it is the interior especially that set these cars apart from others versions of the 911SC. The Weissach Edition featured here is located in Carlsbad, California and sits with 66,309 miles.

I’ve been on a bit of a van kick recently (forever?), and today we have a gorgeous VW that is, in fact, NOT a Westy, Transporter, or Vanagon at all. It’s one of VW’s commercial vehicles from Europe that has spent time as a fire van, but has covered just 13k miles in its 24-year life. Apparently the seller couldn’t register it in California due to the intense EPA rules, which is hugely disappointing as it means I can’t buy it. If you live in any other state, though, this van is impeccably clean, with the normally-dull firetruck’s paint still shining. The interior is an enticing proposition as well; while I’m usually musing about how I would discard the original equipment and turn a van into a camper, this one is all set to become whatever you want as it’s just extremely clean metal with some useful mounting points in the side. And, as always, I fricking love jump seats. This is a very cool and very unique VW van that has a Buy-It-Now lower than just about every nice US-market VW Van sale.
