We had a 2008 and it only had the one booster. That central seat could slide forward independently, which was nice. The central seating location is much safer than any other position in the car. Our pediatrician even said it is better to be in that seat without a car eat than in the outboard seats with. The central booster is nice because it is less wide than the kind you toss on top of the seat. This allows you to install as many of the large child seats in the outer locations as you want.

I want that old car back enough that I'm really interested in this new one. The price is large though.

I have the same color scheme on my slightly smaller 2002 A4 Avant wagon. I would do a trade+cash for this S6 for sure. That way I can stop thinking about why my idle is too high, the CEL is on, the headlight levelling system is broken, the dual zone heater blows cool in one and hot in the other, the suspension bushings creak... Yeah, sign me up but I would prefer a manual transmission. Sometimes these pop up nearby. I'm glad this one is all the way on the other coast.

In Kirkland, WA, an eastern suburb of Seattle, there is a shop available. The location is good and getting better as the surrounding neighborhood gets upgraded. The seller claims it has been booked out at least two weeks and as far as two months for the past year. It's a turn-key business for $300,000. They seem to specialize in restorations and upkeep of older vehicles.
The advertisement:
Their website is sparse but these things sometimes work better in person:

I'm with you on this. I'm naked enough in my bib shorts and jersey. I suspect though that the type of person who goes on the naked ride isn't doing it for exercise. Target heart rate, cadence, wattage, distance, climbing elevation -- none of that matters. No, they are protesting the use of gasoline while wearing gigantic plastic hoops in their ears and genitalia.

Maybe that Opel wasn't dead enough yet. How about a 1934 chevrolet flatbed covered in dust? Claude can hook you up.

Opel GT anybody? The seller just put the engine in so the biggest problem with this car are the non-functioning turn signals. Pay no attention to the trailer it is sitting on. Do not question why the seller includes photos of other Opel GTs in his collage. It comes with another Opel GT front clip even. $2500.

Sure, it doesn't look like a Firebird. Under that sweet 1950 Willys skin is a front and rear end that came from a Firebird. You need $2000 and a lot of time.

Everyone loves a Baja. It's a 5-speed from 2003 and a steep $11400. Oh, right, No Subaru.

Our Suburban is a like a Tahoe but with more. It also includes a backup camera. I use this camera the same way I would the rear view mirror when moving backwards: A glance or two to ensure nothing is there as I back out of the garage. I then proceed to use the side mirrors, after they unfurl (the truck is too wide for the mirrors to make it into the garage), for the rest of the journey. Oh, it has those beeper things that warn you about shrubs and such. Those are sometimes useful but make a ruckus during normal parking activities so I am becoming numb to them.

That guy planning to start manufacturing MG Midgets again is clapping. (I Just made that up. It isn't happening.)
