This weekend, I’m bringing you a series of posts about cars from 1988, which are now classified as antiques according to the Antique Automobile Club of America (AACA). Cars and Trucks from the 1988 model year are now 25 years old (just shoot me please…) and can now participate in AACA Shows and events, right next to the other antiques like Packard and Pierce Arrow. I am also performing an expirement this weekend, in which I am trying to produce content using an I-Pad, since my laptop burst into flames yesterday (and it ain’t easy trying to write on an I-Pad) so enjoy…
The Bentley Mark is assured at becoming a collectible when it ages, and while the 1988 model year Bentley is rather forgettable in the styling department (at least compared to the current models) this particular Bentley is a desirable Turbo R model.
The dealer listing this Bentley states that the mileage, which reads 30,878 is accurate, and that the service history of this car is up to date. This is a one owner car, has never been smoked in, and includes all the manuals. Graphite is not a color I would expect on a car like this, but what the hell do I know.
The starting bid is $16,000, with a Buy-it-Now pricetag of almost $24,000. Original list on this Bentley was approaching the $100,000 threshold, so this might be a great buy, or not. Tell me what you think of this car after taking a look at the listing here: 1988 Bentley Eight Turbo-R
