Parking Lot Prima donna: 1985 Maserati Biturbo

I know that Italian week is was a long and glorious week of cars from the country that brought us the first newspapers, modern plumbing, aqueducts, Roman numerals, the centrifugal pump, the barometer, dentures, the hyper search engine (that helped google do the things it did to take over the world...errr..web), Nutella, the I need to go on?  Let's finish Italian week with one more piece of glorious thin ready to rust sheet metal and an engine that is ahead of Alec Baldwin in terms of the number of times per week that it blows up.  Find this 1985 Maserati Biturbo offered for $6,500 in Topeka, KS via craigslist.

  1. From the Craigslist post: “odometer: 000865“

    Well, for a Maserati Biturbo, 865 miles is pretty high mileage. I’m surprised it’s lasted that long.

  3. Parked in front of an Autozone, makes me worry a bit.
