currently on the hunt for decent 964

I got pulled over once. I used to spend a lot of time crossing the state border a little ways from my house, and I was back there about a year ago. All the locals use one road to cross that leads to a gas station with cheaper gas than in-state, and as I was off the highway in this little town and the M needed some 91, I thought I'd do that like I used to. To get back in state, you have to make a left out of the station. I've done it a hundred times . It's tight, there's a lot of traffic, you have to wait for a hole. It can sometimes take so long that they painted LEFT and RIGHT arrows on the lot so that left-turning people wouldn't hold up those making a right. I found a spot and went -- with appropriate gusto, but nothing crazy, no drift or wheelspin (I think there may have been a little chirp). Ten seconds later, flashing red and blue behind me. I was like, WTF? I know I blinked, I always blink!
So here I am, pulled over on the main drag of this little town in a bright shiny Interlagos blue BMW. People stopped at the light are pointing and laughing. Turns out that they had put a 'no left turn' sign outside of the gas station and I had not even seen it thanks to the traffic and my having no expectation of such a thing being there. The officer told me that the sign was "back" which I didn't understand at the time, and I told him that I had made that left a hundred times but no longer live there and hadn't been around for a while. He asked if my record was clean, I said that it was. He gave me a warning and sent me on my way.
Frustrating. When I got home I googled and found that the sign had been put up becuase of the many accidents there -- true, I had seen several just while filling up over the years -- but that they had taken it down because the gas station owners complained so much about the lost business. Then they put it back up again. I can still see the people laughing at me.
Looks nice man, my uncle has the same but in black :) What year is that, 2010?
