Defenders in Manhattan

One of my clients just sent me pix of his Himalaya NAS90. He states it is driven frequently and more than his other cars.
He purchased a new California, and a 60th 911 in the same week as he received the Defender.

So I'm wondering whats the cost of garage space like this in Manhattan? He has 9 cars that he has told me about!

If the bonnet was matte instead of glossy it would actually work pretty well as a hood blackout for that lightbar.

And he's advertising for you with that vanity plate? Nice.

I was distracted by that 87 testarossa though.

Randy -


I'm geeking out. Again. Can you tell it's an '87 because of the non-ABS wheels and passenger rear view mirror? Or is there something else that distinguishes it??

Pretty much. The driver side mirror is mounted lower and on the door, not the A- pillar like 1986 and before, the wheels are the non ABS type and 16" (512TR went to 18" as you probably know). Now that I look at the wheels again, it looks life the standard 5 bolt Ferrari patten instead of the single racing bolt which would mean this is probably not an 87 but more like a 88 through 91.

More than that, and sometimes double the regular rate for exotics, and always more expensive for lifted vehicles. The garage across the street from Whole Foods in Tribeca was asking something like $1,300/month for regular cars, and maybe $2k+ for exotics.

$35 per sq'?

Even with the Kahn kit it looks like the wheels still stick out. Hasn't someone just made a conversion hub yet? those spacers are crazy.

Looks great i just have a thing about wheels sticking out.

Thats a nice garage Josh. I like 550 Spyders. I had one and sold it 5 years ago. I always felt like a gay guy driving around. Especially if you have a buddy with you. Nothing like sitting shoulder touching shoulder in a car thats as high as your thigh in traffic.
It was Boyd Cottingtons personal Porsche. He tricked out the motor and suspension. It was pretty much a street legal race car.
I bought it and he passed away 3 days later. It has become one of those cars I regret selling.

I sold it though as I felt it was really dangerous. Not because of the insane speed, but because of getting hit was always a fear. My 10 year old daughter and I were rear ended by a big buick. $18K to replace the rear end. No damage to the chassis or motor. All cosmetic. But I did have a sore neck. My daughter was shorter than the seat height so no injury to her. But if we were rear ended by an SUV it would have been fatal.

He lives in my neighborhood. $500-$600 per month plus luxury surcharge so probably about $800-$900 per month.

A small non-"luxury" car can park for about $350 in the neighborhood if you are lucky.

Did you pay him to advertise?!

The other way is the seatbelts...in mid 87, just like the wheels they switched to the mouse trap auto seatbelts that run up the a post....

My 86 that I sold last winter...single high mirror, knock off wheels, Fuchs racing exhaust...great fun...but now the lift is empty and there is no way the D90 will even get thru the door to get on the lift....

Sweet ride you got there.

And 86 was the only year that they had the high stop lamps on the engine cover. The 87 and forward had it at the end of the roof line.

Mark, let me preface this by assuring you that I'm not calling you a liar or anything like that. I have never owned a 550 or a Beck but ...........
I'm looking at these pics and wondering how this is a true 550 (not a Beck).
I've been in a few 550s and both (as well as none I have ever seen) have gaps that precise, nor do they have the "lip area" behind in the vent areas. The underside of the rear bonnet is not painted in any of the originals I've seen. Black usually covers fiberglass.


I'm more or less asking you to educate me on how this is a real 550 and not a Beck, not calling BS, I just want to be educated on what I'm missing (aside from the Porsche bits that can be bolted on a Beck).
Regardless, it's very clean.
