Instagram Car spotter got me


I know not many on this forum use Instagram however I was alerted by someone who knew my car, on Saturday that a Instagram Content Provider named WilliamOliverCarSpotting had posted 10 photos and a little feature on the LeMans.

I have to say the LeMans has never before garnered any attention but this year its way over the top, Saturday morning I spent over an hour with three guys looking at the car resulting in an offer to buy it and a phone number...you  know the drill. This evening two guys in a pick up jumped out and were all over it, even women, one startled me and came right into the garage to compliment it. Here's a screen shot of the Instagram....it had over 300 likes Saturday afternoon. I hate to admit it coming from an up to last year confirmed dog dish hater, I think the doggies and colour coded wheels make all the difference. At least that's what William Oliver says.

Its a sharp dressed Lemans.  Sometimes simplicity of a dog dish says a lot.

It is an exceptionally nice and rare example Ray, so it's nice to see it getting it's due.

 Couldn't agree more.  I think these cars are coming into their own now.  They really do have great lines.  But, (IMO) with stock wheels & tires, the fender wells are just too large.  Fill the fenders with some bigger tires and suddenly they look like a muscle car, and the body lines make sense.  Glad the car is getting the attention it deserves. I expect it will get even more in the future.

 Yes it is. To be honest I like the 2.73 gear, the car has enough torque to overcome that gearing in city and stoplight driving but feels like unlimited top end on highway, plus it can go from below 60 mph to 83 mph in about 3 seconds making passing a breeze.

As per 273 gears behind a big block, I agree, in leau of an overdrive they work just fine.
