Shifting Gears by iieuu Martin Is That Your Car, Mr. Bond? T he array of cars being offered by RM's Monterey Sports Car Auction, Christie's at Pebble Beach and Brooks at Quail Lodge during the Monterey weekend is unprecedented in its scale, scope and quality. There will be over $50M in cars crossing the block during a three-day period, a tribute to the American economy which continues to grow, despite the recent bursting of the dot-corn, now dot-splat, bubble. As shown in this issue's Quarterly Price Guides, important, extremely limited-production cars continue to escalate dramatically in price. Ferrari SWBs bodied by Zagato (5 built), now trading in the $1.5-1.75M range, have more than doubled in the past twelve months, and Maserati 300S sports racers (28 built) at $1-1.5M have increased in value over 45%. „, For the first time in a decade, there is also noticeable activity in select serial production cars. Aston Martin DB4s, 5 and 6s are all hot commodities; your chances are small of finding one in exemplary condition at the lower end of our Price Guide figures. We've all thought that Astons have been seriously undervalued for some time, especially considering their blue-blood GT pedigree and limited production numbers. However, their reputation for being extraordinarily expensive to repair (although certainly not by Ferrari standards; I speak from experience), coupled with having the misfortune of being the poster child for the crash of '89-90 has held back their values. A fair number of DB4s, 5s and 6s were restored to over-the-top condition when their values warranted it; those are the cars that are being snapped up today. Even at $100,000, a top-rank 1965 DB5 Vantage Coupe is still a good deal compared to the cost of bringing one into fine it firsthand. The focused intensity of four days of classic car activity attracts enthusiasts, collectors and dealers from all parts of the world to southern California. There are worse ways to spend a weekend than basking in the L.A. sunshine, watching vintage Alfas and Mercedes roar off on the tour, hobnobbing at the Petersen with the usual gang, bidding on Road Runners and Ferraris, admiring automotive art, judging Porsche 959s at the concours and of course, finding a different out-of-the way French restaurant to dine at with friends each night. We'll be back next year, and invite you to join us. Size Matters We're celebrating the 12th annual Monterey issue of SCMwith our largest magazine ever, 104 pages chock full of auction reports, market analysis and wallet-tempting adverts. New this month is a Jaguarexclusive column, "Cat Trax," authored by English-car expert, and Publisher of British Car Magazine, Gary Anderson. Our increased size provides an opportunity for additional editorial coverage of cars of interest, and we thank you for your continued support. On the Cover With Maserati as the featured marque at Monterey this year, English artist Barry Rowe has captured a legendary moment of their Grand Prix history on our cover. "Fangio at Niirburgring 1957," depicts Juan Manuel Fangio in a Maserati 250F (S/N 2529), just after he passed Mike Hawthorn in a Lancia-Ferrari D50 (S/N 0009). Fangio, having set a lap record of 9:25.6 in qualifying, began the race with a light load of fuel. After establishing a 28-second lead, he pulled into the pits for a routine stop. In the words of Alan Aston Martins—finally making it b ack into the "flavor of the month" club. fettle. While you've missed your chance to steal one of these James Bondmobiles for half price, they are still reasonable purchases at current market values. It will cost you significantly more, for the same car, six months from now. The California Classic The 3rd Annual California Classic, presented by Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge, was a grand success. The brainchild of Andy Cohen and Jim Hull, it has grown in both quality and stature every year. It's only fitting that California, home to so much of America's car culture, should have an event that encompasses such a broad spectrum of collecting. During a four-day period, the events included the California Classic Rallye, the Cars & Stars Gala at the Petersen Museum, Christie's collector car auction at the museum, the California Classic Automotive Art Exhibit produced by Blackhawk Art and the Concours on Rodeo ("100 Years of the Automobile on the Street of Dreams"). Additionally, the Classic celebrated the opening of the Nethercutt Collection's new, worldclass facility. The best way to experience the Classic is to come to L.A. and enjoy Henry (Ferrari, The Grand Prix Cars), his crew "shambled through a disgracefully tardy 52 seconds to change the rear wheels and top off his fuel load." Fangio proceeded to repeatedly break the track record as he reeled in the Ferraris of Hawthorn and his teammate Peter Collins (S/N 0008). On the next-tolast lap, Fangio overtook both the Ferraris, finishing the race 3.6 seconds ahead of Hawthorne. 2529 went on to have an illustrious career, and is now owned by collector and enthusiast Hartmut Ibing of Dusseldorf, Germany. A similar 250F (2510/2518) with a far less impressive history sold at the BarrettJackson/Coys Monaco auction, covered in this issue, for $750,000. 2529 should bring at least $1.5M if it came to market. SCM'er Murray Smith has entered his 250F, S/N 2525, in this year's Monterey Historics. This is the fourth time Rowe's work has graced SCM's cover. A native of Coventry, he began painting full time after winning the prestigious Sotheby's award and, subsequently, was commissioned to create the 1998 and 1999 posters for the Pebble Beach Concours. "Fangio at Ntirburgring" will be featured on a commemorative poster for the Monterey 2000 weekend commissioned by Steve Austin's Automobilia. The artist will be at Concorso Italiano and Laguna Seca to sign copies of the poster, which are $20. The original painting is available. For information about this and other works by Rowe, contact Automobilia (800/ 452-8434,503/643-8080, fax 503/643-1302)(OR).• Sports Car Market

All at one time or another were "trippers": guys who deliver moonshine hidden in highly modified cars. The story opens as the youngest brother makes , just one more run. His first child is on the way and he has promised his wife that he will get a real job. A vindictive cop catches the youngest brother and before the night is over, both are dead. Flash forward eighteen years. The baby born to the tripper's widow is now grown up, as good a driver as his pa and (surprise) looks just like him. And there's more, but I'd hate to ruin the twists and turns that the plot takes. However, all of this leaves me wondering whether this is the kind of book that car enthusiasts will read? I suspect that car enthusiasts are the target because the readership among moonshiners and good ol' boys probably doesn't amount to much. A Journey Through the World of Motor Racing] 969-1972 Author: Michael Keyser Publisher: Bentley Publishers Phone: 800/423-4595 Size: 8Y2" x 11" hardcover. 310 pages. Price: $69.95 Rating: Race fans **** Casual enthusiasts ** Nisp. Zed TI Reprinted and updated from the original book published in the early '70s, Michael Keyser's photo essay takes us on a tour of the world of motor racing circa 1969-1972. Armed with his camera and an enviable pit-pass, Keyser took a remarkable group of photographs. They capture the flavor of an era that, as time marches on, is fast fading in enthusiast's memories. Now, a quarter of a century later, it's striking to look back at an era when most of the drivers were our contemporaries. This was the time when racing started to become big business and perhaps started being less fun for the participants. This was also the era when drivers like Jackie Stewart started pushing for safety regulations that wouldn't be in place in time to save several of the drivers in this book. Guys like Petersen, Rodriguez and Cevert look young and years short of their prime here, something that didn't strike me when I first picked up The Speed Merchants when I was fresh out of high school. A Journey Through the World of Motor Racing' 1969 1972 rchants Michael Keyser Many of us with a serious project in the garage are too busy for heavy reading and as lighter fare, Southern Runnin' isn't any more juvenile than Stroker Ace, which was a funny book as well as a stupid Burt Reynolds movie. Southern Runnin ' is a modern-day version of the kind of pulp fiction that used to be sold to adolescents and early teens way back in the 550s. Writers like Henry Gregor Felsen with his Hot Rod, Rag Top Boy, Crash Club and Street Rod pocketbooks could fill the hours (for slow readers) while they were waiting to save up enough paper-route money to buy their first car. If you have one of those adolescents in your house, Southern Runnin' just might be the way to wean them off of comic books and into slightly more serious literature. —Michael Duffey 1 2  Prince Borghese's Trail: 10,000 Miles Over Two Continents, Four Deserts, and the Roof of the World in the Peking to Paris Motor Challenge Author: Genevieve Obert Publisher: Council Oak Books Phone: Order direct from the author at 800/ 500-3428, or available at any bookstore.

This book covers the 1997 Peking to Paris Rally, in which SCM'ers Carl Schneider (1954 Packard Straight 8 con- Keyser was also a racer during the '70s, giving him both ac- cess to the pits and a unique perspective on his experiences as a privateer among not-so-privateers and flat-out professionals. Driving a Porsche 911 in the company of Ferrari 512s and Porsche 917s has never been described in print so well. Aside from his informed prose, Keyser turns a Freidmanesque eye toward the subject of cars, racetracks and the personalities behind the sport. His shots taken at Le Mans and the Targa Florio are the best I've seen; the color work particularly is worth the price of admission. Every bit as good as his new book A French Kiss With Death: Steve McQueen and the Making of Le Mans (reviewed in July 2000, page 28) The Speed Merchants is still, over twenty-five years after its birth, one of the best racing books extant.—MD. vertible) and David Cohen (1930 Stutz Lancefield coupe s/c) also participated. Obert and car owner and co-driver Linda Dodwell's mount for the event was a semiprepared 1968 Hillman Hunter. If that seems like an unlikely car for a 10,000-mile rally, whose course included dirt tracks through mountain passes, vague paths across deserts and fording rivers, consider that the entrant list included a 1967 Rolls-Royce Phantom V, a 1951 MG YB saloon, a 1955 Chevy Bel Air wagon, a 1964 Aston Martin DB5 and a 1965 Citroen 2CV. Obert is at her very best when describing the mechanical and cultural obstacles that had to be overcome during the event, from cars being nearly completely rebuilt overnight to the difficulty of finding a perfect martini in Pakistan. In a nearly exclusively male arena, Obert and her co-driver demonstrated grit and determination that ultimately led to a 32 overall finishing position out of the seventy-two cars entered in the competition section. The only danger in having your significant other peruse this book is that it might lead to her saying, "Dear, Jillie and I are taking the Bentley Continental R-type on a rally across the Himalayas. It's just $40,000 for the entry fee, plus flying the car to the starting point, and I'll be back in sixty days.

Fax 503/252-5854, e-mail: mail@sportscarmarket.com Dear SCM: I just looked at a very nice example of a 1957 Talbot Lago America with the BMW V8, ZF four-speed box, LHD; nicely restored with attention to original details. How do I determine what a fair price is? I'm considering it for vintage touring events.—Tony Singer, via e-mail Raymond Milo of BB One Ex- ports replies: A fair price is one at which, if your significant other decides that the bathroom must be redone now, you can bail out and recover your investment quickly enough to avoid hiring a divorce lawyer. The car in question is a fairly odd duck. The total production of Talbot Lago Americas was ten (starting with chassis #15055 and ending #14665). There was nothing revolutionary about the Talbot Lago America. It was an "old wine in new bottles" deal; an almost identical car to T14LS Lago Baby and Lago 2500S. What was different was the LHD steering (the first and only on a Talbot ever), and the BMW V8 with ZF gearbox. Talbot's premise was that Americans would buy anything that has V8 power. That was not the case, because the 120-hp engine in a 2,700-lb. car did not thrill anyone here. (Arcane French laws taxed the cars basically by the size of the bore, so Tony Lago persuaded the BMW people to reduce the bore from 75 mm to 72.5 mm. Translation: custom-made pistons if you ever need them.) The first America was shown to the press in September 1957 in Paris, and the first one here (a '58 model) probably arrived towards the end of 1958. Road & Track tested one, and published the results in the April 1959 issue. But back to the money. Since I do not know of any Americas for sale, here or abroad, I went through European auction records, and through the LVA's La Cote de l'Automobile de Collection, the only price guide that lists this model. In their 2000 edition, they list the America at FF320K to FF240K (if I can freely interpret their guide, it is for cars in 3+ to 2- condition). Since this is based on 1999 prices, I am using FF6.6 as a conversion to US dollars, or $48.5K-36K. It should be carefully noted that the price is for the cars sitting in Europe, with EEC papers, and all taxes paid. If you are selling an American-based car to Europe, the rule of thumb is to deduct 25% from the guide's price. There were no Lago Americas sold at European auctions in '99 or '98. A very similar car, Lago 2500S (more prized by the French because it is "all Talbot') sold on June 12, 1998 at La Rochelle for FF340K ($1=FF6.3; $54K). Same model sold in Toffen on November 29, 1997 for FF141K ($1=FF6; $23K), and lastly a fake "barchetta" Lago America (by Ladriere?) sold in Paris on July 10, 1997 for FF330K ($1=FF6; $55K). I hope that this will help you decide what the 'fair price" for the car is. Dear SCM: As both a vintage car and motorcycle lover (more accent on the latter) I enjoy the small, but significant addition of "Bike Buys" to SCM I do, however, want to note a few things that are misleading in your April Bike Buys on the Triumph TR6R (page 16). I understand that with the Bike Buys column, you don't have much space to chronicle a certain model machine, plus include the spec box—a challenge when dealing with a model built for eighteen years, in many iterations, like the single-carb 650 Triumph. 1.) TR6SR, not TR6R, was Triumph's official catalog name for the low-piped, single-carb roadster in 1965. 2.) What you've really tried to cover in this column are unit-construction TR6s, but you don't note that the roadster models were available from 1957 to 1962 in nonunit (separate gearbox) form. This is a critical distinction to anyone considering a Triumph twin for sale. The differences between unit and pre-unit certainly affect prices and values. Plus, there were other variants besides simply the C models— S, SR, SP and SCs in the unit era. Prior to that in the pre-unit (separate gearbox) era, the TR6/A was the low-piped roadster from 1957. That's an important thing for caroriented buyers to know. 3.) Colors and trim: The paint scheme noted in the spec chart only applies to the '65 model shown, but appears to represent the 196374 production run noted on the line above it. The novice is led to believe all TR6Rs are that color. Also, J.J.

SILVER COLLECTOR CAR AUCTIONS 1-800-255-4485 2020 N MONROE, SPOKANE, WA 99205 www.silverauctions.com 16  it doesn't include a key detail of originality for the '65 model year only—the pinstripe separating the gold and while panels was in light blue. When you say "fenders were painted," that wasn't the case on 1973-74 R models, which are encompassed in your spec chart. Ditto the mention of the parcel grid, which was deleted after 1968. Ditto the gearbox—a five-speed was optional in 1972 and standard on all US models in '73-74. 4.) I'm curious as to where you got your production number (8,000). I've got copies of factory dispatch records from Meriden as well as Johnson Motors, the Triumph Corp., and Motorcycle Industry Council import data from the 1960s. Your number is closer to 1968-69 TR6 production (when the factory's output had more than quadrupled) than 1965. 5.) Your horsepower listing of 58 is way, way off the mark. Triumph listed the street TR6's output as between 40 and 45 hp from 1963 to 1970. Even the Bonneville was only listed as having 52 hp. At the rear wheel these things probably had 40 hp, max. 6.) The value and appreciation figures do not reflect either what's advertised in today's market (various classifieds and auction listings) or what machines actually change hands for. Your $7K for a restored late '60s machine is more likely a 100-point Bonneville number, not a TR6. Indeed, TR6 owners can only pray that your prediction for up-to$10K appreciations comes true. Again, model distinctions are important here. Within the TR6 seg- ment, 100-point pre-unit machines (TR6/A and B) are bringing the biggest money today, followed by highpipe unit C-models and the few ultra-rare SCs. The roadster R models are the most common iteration and carry the lowest values, as you'll see if you study the action. By the way, from the mid-1960s on, all highpiped C-models were available with either street tires (Dunlop K70) or Trials Universals. Technically these weren't "knobbies." Most left dealerships, even in the Western states, shod with K70s. 7.) I agree with your Fun to Ride factor, but am confused on your rating of only 2 for Ease of Maintenance. Compared to what? I've got a Ducati Darmah in the garage and I owned a BMW RlOORS for ten years; both are more difficult to maintain, overall, than a TR6 or Bonnie (of which I've owned four). Yes, the Triumphs require more frequent maintenance, but they're easier to work on, overall. Yes, fastener tightening is a regular ritual. But I cuss every time I put a battery in the Beemer, or change the oil and  filter  in  in  the  Duck. —Lindsay Brooke, author, Triumph Motorcycles  America (Motorbooks Int'l, 1993) and Triumph Racing Motorcycles in America (Motorbooks, 1995), Plymouth, MI.• Errata Dean Kruse of Kruse International was the auctioneer of "The Auction" in Las Vegas (July 2000, page 42) not Andy Adcock as reported.

1 Legal Files Iplimmig Drive a Honda or a Bentley? by Alexander Leventhal H Nevertheless, it is the single most important step a purchaser can take to protect himself from an unscrupulous or unknowing seller who would sell him a shiny but shot example of whatever marque he was pursuing. Conversely, as the following case illustrates, it is also an important tool for protecting honest sellers, whether as a result of buyer's remorse or unexpected problems with the vehicle. I received a phone call from a real estate attorney in Florida who was looking for some (free) advice on how to best represent a friend of his who had recently sold an early '70s Bentley T-1 sedan to a local buyer. The buyer was now suing the seller as a result of problems with the car. The story, as related to me, was that the car was very nice cosmetically and mechanically, painted sky blue over a navy blue interior. The seller placed an ad locally, which read to the effect that there was a very nice Bentley for sale, needs nothing, showroom condition, etc. The ad was probably not 100% accurate from the standpoint of a critical enthusiast but it was not really any different from the hyperbole in any of the other ads in the local classifieds. aving a pre-purchase inspection done before purchasing a collectible car will not always protect a buyer from a vehicle that has latent defects, whether as a result of oversight or fraud. A younger man came to see the car, and made it clear to the owner that he meant to use it as a car, that is, for daily transportation. He could not afford to keep another regular car for every day, so the Bentley would be his sole means of transportation. The young man had never owned anything more exciting than a Honda Prelude before, and this was a gift to himself for completing his medical residency. He asked the seller if it was reliable, if it needed ANDY RHEAULT, 1928-2000 anything, and if it could it could be used in such a manner. The seller replied that in the twenty years he had owned it he had found it very reliable, that he was unaware of any major needs at the moment, and that he had always enjoyed driving it. The seller told the buyer that he was welcome to take the vehicle to the mechanic of his choice for an inspection before purchase. The purchaser, eager to buy his new couch on wheels, passed on this, and simply paid for the vehicle on the spot, went to the DMV the same day for tags, and took it home. Apparently, a month or so later the old Bentley left its young owner stranded on the side of the road and had to be towed to a mechanic. The mechanic diagnosed a bad fuel pump, and provided an estimate for its repair. He also told the doc that all of the brake lines needed to be replaced immediately, and that some investigation should be done into the alignment and suspension because the tires where wearing unevenly. Brake pads would be needed soon, and the play in the steering would need to be addressed if it got any worse. The mechanic also opined that, while all this was being done, it wouldn't be a bad idea to fit a new exhaust, address the rust that was starting to bubble up in the fenders, and repair a leaking heater radiator. The estimate for all of the required repairs approached the cost of a semester of medical school. The owner was aghast. Having never owned an old or collectible car before, he did not understand that there are always things that need to be done to an old car. Also, mechanics can always find ten things that a car of this vintage might need. The buyer came to the conclusion that the seller had knowingly sold him a worthless piece of crap through fraud, and that he needed to seek compensation and perhaps some vengeance. Bugatti collector and expert Andre E. (Andy) Rheault died suddenly on July 1 while in his workshop at home in Camden, Maine. 20  He was 72. Born in Westwood, Massachusetts on May 11, 1928, after graduation from Harvard in 1951 he had worked overseas for the US Department of State for many years. His interest in Bugattis developed in Saigon when he bought a Type 40 tourer. Soon after returning to the US, he and his family moved to Maine where Andy established a boat-building business in Rockport and acquired a Type 37 Bug. A Brescia model purchased from Australia followed and, most recently, a Type 22 eightvalve tourer which his research had revealed was the very first Bugatti imported to America. The restoration of the eight-valve was completed last year in time for it to be exhibited at the Meadow Brook Concours d'Elegance. My guess is that he came to this conclusion based on the fact that his Honda had never stranded him. Probably, not being a "car guy," he took the statement that the car "needed nothing" a little too literally. He retained counsel and filed a lawsuit against the seller, pressing causes of action for fraud and breach of contract. I was not much help to the Florida attorney, as all I could advise was to see if a reasonable settlement could be reached. If not, he would have to convince the judge, who might not be a car guy himself, that the seller was unaware of any latent defects in the vehicle and that the problems the buyer faced were not signs of a bad or defective vehicle, but were to be expected in any like vehicle of this vintage. I told him this would be a tough row to hoe. While there are several alternative defenses that I have omitted in the above paragraph, that's because I firmly believe that if you are getting sued over a $25,000 car, you have already lost. Your attorney fees if you go to court, win or lose, could easily amount to that much. Having a prospective purchaser get an inspection done on the vehicle in question can save the seller as much headache as the buyer. This is especially true when the buyer is not especially knowledgeable, and may be purchasing the car in a fit of fancy, without really understanding what he is getting into and what it takes to own and maintain a vintage car. The inspection will protect the seller from a lawsuit for having failed to disclose defects which were not readily apparent. Any honest seller has a lot to gain from having a purchaser receive this type of education. Alex Leventhal is a car collector and attorney in New York. His comments here are general in nature, and are not a substitute for a consultation with an attorney.• Internationally known and respected as a Bugatti historian of unsurpassed breadth and depth of knowledge, he published the authoritative American Bugatti Register and served several times as editor of the American Bugatti Club's magazine, Pur Sang, which was recognized as one of the best club magazines produced in the US. Andy recently provided SCM readers with insightful commentary about several Bugattis that had crossed the auction block (July 2000, page 18); SCM had looked forward to having him as a regular contributor to its Bugatti coverage. His knowledge of Bugattis is irreplaceable, and he will be missed by the entire collector car community.—Dave Brownell • Sports Car Market

The Wrenching TRUTH A look at repair and restoration shops recommended by SCM subscribers. Please send your suggestions for shops for us to consider to copyed@sportscarmarket.com , fax 503/252-5854. Coventry Restorations n northeastern Pennsylvania, where old cars rust away on snowy, salt-laden winter roads, Coventry Restorations tries to stem the tide of deterioration. As you might guess from the name, this shop started out specializing in British cars, but now takes on German cars and American muscle as well. I In the shop at the moment are a '65 Jaguar E-type, '57 AC Bristol, two Austin-Healey 3000s, a Bugeye Sprite, a '47 Cadillac convertible, two Shelby Mustangs ('67 and '68) and a '70 Plymouth Barracuda AAR (All American Racer). SCMsubscriber Dr. Michael Robinson, who lives nearby, recommended this shop. Coventry did the sheet metal and paint on his '66 Alfa GTV, while he took care of the mechanical work. "It's nice for the hobbyist because they'll work with you on the project, letting you do the work you want to, and they'll do the rest," he explained. Ross Piazza and Mark Costello are the majority partners. Jerry Hoeppner, who works part-time, is a minority partner. Hoeppner's specialty is operating their English wheel, a metal-working tool which he recently used to create a deck lid for an AC Bristol. Piazza was a psychologist before he began to restore cars as a business fifteen years ago. Costello was a carpenter before he joined Coventry seven years ago. With their own paint mixing system, Coventry can do everything in house, from metal fabrication and aluminum welding to mechanical and interior work. "To do a ground-up restoration, the car never has to leave our shop," Piazza said. They rely on an outside upholsterer, Joe Pace, to come over and install convertible tops, headliners, and leather seats. One of Coventry's customers is restoring a Bugeye Sprite, rather than just going out and buying a finished one. "He wants to do his own car for himself," Piazza said. And the Bugeye owner actually will work on the car during restoration. Many restoration shops keep customers away from the work area, but not Coventry. "We invite our customers to work along with us," Piazza said. "They get a better appreciation for what goes into the restoration." Which car is a good candidate to restore? Piazza's answer is the '65-67 Jaguar Series I E-type roadster. "You can get everything for the car," he said, "and parts aren't terribly expensive. The 22  by Bill Neill car will continue to appreciate. You can restore one for what one is worth." However, many other cars are not likely to return the cost of restoration. Piazza described the Mercedes 2805L as "a beautiful car, well made, great to drive, comfortable, and dependable." But to restore one would cost close to $50,000 and a restored 280SL is worth a little more than half that. Every restoration is different, and requires making decisions in progress. "The whole process is one of evaluation as you go along," Piazza said. During restoration, Coventry evaluates the cost of using reproduction parts versus the value of keeping original parts. Collector car restoration often takes longer than expected. For Coventry to restore a car to concours condition often requires 800 to 1,200 hours. "The most difficult thing we en- "It's up to us to accept cars for restoration that we know will not be a bad deal for everybody," Piazza said. They accept about one of four restoration project cars proposed to them. Owners of American muscle cars often want their restored car to be as original as possible, complete with factory flaws. "Shelby people want us to overspray everything like at the factory," Piazza said. "When you paint the body, they want to see overspray on the frame rails." "The distressing thing is they want you to do things in sort of a sloppy fashion," Piazza said, "the way it was done." For example, an engine bracket may have been painted at the factory by being dipped in a bucket of paint. Shelby owners want to see that drip mark. Coventry recently painted a 1967 427 Corvette. "Owners want the body to be lacquer," Piazza said. "No base coat, no clear coat." But shops don't use lacquer paint any more because of cleanair regulations. So Coventry painted the Corvette in single-stage polyurethane. "If you rub it, it comes off like lacquer," Piazza explained. They even dulled the paint in the Corvette's door jambs with Scotch-Brite to make it resemble unpolished lacquer. Ross, Jerry and Mark with A-H 3000, '57 AC Bristol and TR3 chassis.

Coventry gives the owner an estimate for the restoration, and works fifty hours at a time. At the end of that time, they review the finished work with the owner, receive payment, and get permission for the next fifty hours. Owners of European cars don't want factory flaws, just perfection. "The Mercedes and Jaguar people want everything done better than new," Piazza said. "We've done a Mercedes where the only piece of chrome we got a point off for was a piece from the factory." Coventry restored a '38 Jag- uar SS 100 that won first place in its class in JCNA's (Jaguar Clubs of North America) 1999 national championship. The job was made harder because a machinist who had owned the car removed some original parts and substituted his own hardware and bolts. To get the headlamps right, Coventry sent them to a pre-war Jaguar specialist in Johannesburg, South Africa, to have the proper gravel guards put on. "The Jag assembly had an extra rim with a gravel guard that matched the mesh of the grille," Piazza explained. "He did a good job on them. And he wasn't expensive, either." The SS 100 received a perfect score at two shows, and a 99.99 at a third because of a fingerprint on the convertible top window. The shop considered dusting that print to learn the identity of its owner, but they couldn't find their can of do-it-yourself detective fingerprint powder.• Sports Car Market

Market Review at Buyer's Guide La rivista del velocissimo e del bellissimo 1930 Alfa Romeo Chassis number: 0412061 Engine number: 0412294 IT empted to join Alfa Romeo from Fiat in 1923 by the opportunity to head his own department and a three-times salary increase, the brilliant Vittorio Jano became part of the racing department in Milan in the autumn of that year. His first major project was the six-cylinder P2 racing car, winner of the 1924 European Grand Prix at Lyon and A1ACR championship Grand Prix car of 1925. Jano had been brought on by Niccola Romeo with the understanding that he would develop a passenger car based on his race car. By the time of the Milan Salon in 1925, the new NR, or 6C 1500, was displayed in chassis form. ANONIMA LOMBARD FABORICA AOTOMORIII Tip° U  MILANO 11 4.) N? 1750 DHC Deliveries commenced in early 1927 and the car was enthusiastically received. In the following year, the original single-cam engine was joined by a twin-cam version which could be had normally aspirated or supercharged. In 1929, a 1752cc version of the engine appeared in single-cam, twin-cam and twin-cam supercharged stages of tune. This model, the 6C 1750, was a truly great car that was to dominate its class in competition from 1929 to 1931, and yet was also a most desirable road car. For 1929, the 6C 1750 was offered in various forms, including the long-wheelbase (10 ft. 2 in.) SOHC Turismo, a short-chassis (9 ft.) DOHC Sport and the short-chassis DOHC supercharged Super Sport. The chassis number of this car makes it a 1929 Turismo, of which 327 were produced. However, its engine comes from a 1930 Turismo. Finally, a DOHC head has been fitted: not a casual conversion, since the Turismo cast-in camdrive tower has a different spacing from the DOHC unit's alloy tower. Number produced  Years produced  This car is well known in British Alfa circles, having been in the David Black family since 1972. It carries drophead coupe coachwork by James Young of Bromley, Kent and offers 2+2 seating, wind-up windows, external pram hood irons and rear-mounted spare wheel. The car retains a delightful patina to the interior with original leather upholstery that reflects careful ownership, and wooden dash and door cappings representing the skills of the finest British craftsmen.

Lancia Lambda, Bugatti Type 40 Club  this snug vintage Alfa is described as being in good order throughout. This car sold for $106,650, including buyer 's premium, at the Books Auction in England, on April 27, 2000. The pedigree of this car, as outlined in the auctioneer's description, is one of the finest possible. However, the road-going versions of Jano's championship P2 had little more than overall specification in common with the P2. The 1750 series included single-cam engines powering sedans and even limousines. 24  Original list price . $3,000-3,500 (approximate) SCM Price Guide  This car is a collection of the less-sporting components in the line. Initially a long-wheelbase, single-cam model developing 46 hp, it is burdened with a heavy drophead body. At some point in its life, it has gained a twin-cam head that raised its output by about 4 hp. The top speed of this car in its original configuration was barely 65 mph, and the twin-cam head probably allows it to attain 70 on a good day. These pedestrian 1750s are profoundly shadowed by their superstar siblings, and have been largely ignored by collectors. In the 1960s, Castagna and James Young dropheads were regarded as cheap sources of spares for the supercharged Super Sport or Gran Sport models. The fact that any of these donor cars has survived intact is truly remarkable. Now, because they were never highly valued, these models are very rare indeed, and they can draw larger crowds than the supercharged Zagatos when they appear at shows. This car's worth—its survival, actually—is due entirely to its ownership by David Black, who appreciated and conserved it for decades. If the auctioneer 's description of original leather interior is correct, then this car is a veritable time capsule. That alone qualifies it as a collectible. What did David see in this car; to have cherished it so? Jano's hand. A finely crafted design that was decades ahead of its time. The 6C 1750 set standards for comfort, performance and handling that were not bettered until well after the 1929-1932 268 $50 (approximate) Bulkhead $50,000-60,000 $500 Intake side of engine, towards the front War The trade-offfor the Zagato's wind-in-the-hair sportiness was rollup windows and a degree of elegance shared with the likes of Hispano Suiza, some Isotta Fraschinis and a few Bugattis. This car embodies both the best and the worst of its breed. Its pedestrian performance is counterbalanced by pedigree. The price paid, well above SCM's guide, indicates that pedigree and provenance prevailed. —Pat Braden (Photo and description courtesy of auction company.)• Sports Car Market

FERRAR IT Chassis number: 0507 GT Engine number: 0507 GT his Ferrari is one of the diminishing number of highly original, and in many respects "unspoiled" historic cars. As such cars become increasingly rare, that very fact can surely only enhance their value. 0507, still with its original engine, and having been the last thirty-two years in a Dutch museum, is one of the most attractive 250 GT "Tour de France" Ferraris to appear on the auction arena. $753,000 bought the TdF pictured here at Brooks Europe's May 27th Monaco auction. The amount was on the high side, given the condition of this car But its no-surprises, no-excuses provenance and competition history, as detailed in Jess Pourret 's definitive 250 GT Competition book, The Ferrari Legend Since 1977, added significantly to this car 's appeal to serious collectors. The TdF was the first in a series of dual-purpose road/competition cars that evolved into the 250 Short Wheelbase Berlinetta (SWB) and finally the most highly valued dual-purpose Ferrari, the GTO. From 1955 to 1964, the 250 GT in its various guises was the car that spread the Ferrari name the world over Driven mostly by amateur owner/ drivers, the 3-liter Berlinettas won an astonishing number of races, including three consecutive World Championships. They also won nine consecutive victories in the grueling Tour de France multi-day speed and reliability contest. In 1958, George Arents drove 0773 to fourteen East Coast SCCA races, winning thirteen of them. In 1978, Bob Bodine drove 0677 (see SCM cover, July 2000) to the Atlanta Ferrari Club Meetingfrom Minnesota. And in 1994 I drove 0703, another 14-louver TdF, 2,600 miles from Atlanta to Laguna Seca, raced it and drove it home. Here is how the model evolved. The 3-liter competition cars on the Long Wheelbase (LWB) chassis are relatively rare, with ninety-two Berlinettas produced in five series as the design evolved _from 1955-1959. Almost all have survived, one literally brought backfrom the dead after being burned, stripped and buried. Under the name LWB Berlinetta, the first series of eight 3-liter cars were built in 1955 and early 1956, bodied primarily by Pinin Farina (PF), with aluminum coachwork Most of these looked similar to PF's striking 250 MM coupe. Scaglietti then produced the second series, nine cars with minor variations on the PF design. The TdF moniker arrived when the playboy Marquis de Portago, in the seventh Scaglietti-bodied car built, won the 1956 Tour de France race, besting Stirling Moss in a Gullwing. These nine cars still had a wrap-around rear window without the lou- Years produced  Number produced  Original list price  SCM Price Guide  Tune-up  Distributor caps  Chassis #  Engine #  Web site  Alternatives  1956 Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta "TdF" early roundtail-premium 14 louver $1M$ 1.5 ; Zagato-bodied $ 1.25-1 .5 M $1,500 2 @ $250 each Front frame tube Engine rear mount Club  Ferrari Club of America, Box 720597, Atlanta, GA 30358 Ferrari Owners Club, 8642 Cleta St. Downey, CA 90241 www.ferrariclubofamerica.org wwvv.FerrariOwnersClub.org 250 SWB, 250 MM vers on the sail panel that later came to characterize the TdF design. 0507 is the second car built in this series. The next nine Scaglietti cars, the third series, were quite different in appearance and are the first of what many consider the true TdF design, which is characterized by a non-wrap-around rear window and 14 lou- 30  vers in the sail panel for improved cabin ventilation. In late '57, the 14 louvers gave way to three large slots and the front was changed to attractive covered headlights on the next fifteen cars, the fourth series. The finalforty cars, the fifth series, had a single louver and the same covered-headlight front end, except for the final eight which were forced in 1959 by Italian law to have open (uncovered) headlights. Is 0507, pictured here, a remarkable original? Most of the body is original and it has the original engine. This is noteworthy but not unique. The 250 Berlinettas were almost all raced and a quick perusal ofperiod photos shows that many were involved in shunts, some completely destroying the body, most just resulting in a crooked "smile" from the front. As Jess Pourret says in his book, "it must be remembered that Scaglietti could make a complete body easier than repairing crushed aluminum, and at a low cost which today seems incredible." In late 1957, Scaglietti partially re-bodied 0507. The front end was redone with crisper front fender lines, a lower nose, a much smaller grille and covered lights. In 1964, it was, according to Pourret, again modified, front and rear this time in Switzerland. With the exception of the first (0503) of these second series TdFs, the remaining eight have most of their original bodywork. 1955-1959 84 $11,000 "Standard" TdF $600,000-800,000; The front modifications on 0507 are not considered by most observers to be one of the more successful Scaglietti re-designs. The less-thanattractive rear-end treatment, done for visual, not competition purposes in 1964, deserves no comment, only quick evisceration. Warren Fitzgerald, author of the famous Merritt and Fitzgerald book Ferrari: The Sports and GT Cars, spoke to the Ferrari Club Annual Meeting in 1971 about TdFs. His slide showed 0507 with its current paint scheme and body modifications and he described it as: "thoroughly bastardized and it 's a crying shame."

Sheehan Speaks by Michael Sheehan n the June issue ofSCMwe compared the cost of painting a Mercedes 450SL with a Ferrari 308 ("The $7,000 Paint Job," page 61). Here, we take a look at the work involved and the cost differences for crash repairs to a 360 Ferrari versus a Porsche 996. Let's assume both cars are near new, with non-metallic paint, and have had an accident that resulted in damage to the front bumper, right fender, nose panel, headlight area and inner structure. There is no damage to the hood on either car. The parts and labor hour quotes for a Porsche are standardized throughout the US and average $35 per hour. There are, however, no standardized flat-rate labor hour manuals for the Ferrari, and Ferrari specialist body shop rates nationwide varied from $35 to $85 an hour. In calls to authorized Ferrari dealers, parts prices also varied considerably from dealer to dealer, and most parts would have to be flown from Italy for time-sensitive repairs, adding to the cost. For the purposes of this article, I have averaged Ferrari body shop labor at $55 an hour, and taken the average of the parts prices I received. III To begin with, both the 360 and the 996 must be set up on a frame machine, measured for damages and then "pulled." They must be measured during the "pulls" to ensure the inner structure is stress relieved, square and back into place. This must be done before any parts are removed, because the car was crashed as a unit and must be pulled back into shape as a unit to "stress relieve" all attached body parts. The Porsche has a conventional steel unibody. Steel has a "memory" and the inner structure and sheet metal that make up the frame can be pulled as a unit, for a total frame "pull" time of 6.0 hours at $35 per hour or $210. The Ferrari has an aluminum body and an aluminum race-car-like box and ladder frame, requiring careful measurement and alignment during the pulls. The inner structure is made of different size frame rails and tubes that often must be pulled as separate items. Total frame "pull" time is 9.0 hours at $55 per hour or $495. With the frame pulled, we now remove parts for replacement. The Porsche is a precision-built, mass-production car designed to be assembled, and disassembled for later repairs, with relative ease. Replacement parts are interchangeable and the fit is near perfect. Labor time to remove and install (R&I) the front bumper-spoiler assembly is 3.8 hours; R&I the front fender, 3.5 hours; and the headlight assembly is 1.5 hours. To re-align the hood, latch and hinges is 1.5 hours. Total labor to R&I the Porsche sheet metal parts is 10.0 August, 2000  An $11,000 Ferrari Fender Bender hours at $35 per hour or $350. joins other sheet metal. The welds must be cut loose from the inner structure before the fender can be removed. The new fender is supplied slightly oversize and must be trimmed to fit into place, resulting in total fender R&I of 8.0 hours. Time to R&I the carbon fiber inner fender liner is 2.0 hours. The aluminum lower front nose panel between the hood and the front bumper assembly and its inner support Parts needed to repair the Porsche sheet metal include a new fender at $343.65; a new bumper-spoiler assembly at $1,245; a retainer strip at $24.36; front grille at $11.70; and headlight assembly at $916.65; the total for the Porsche parts is $2,541.36. The Ferrari is a hand-built car with most of the aluminum body panels welded in place. While the labor to R&I the bumper spoilerassembly is similar to the Porsche at 3.0 hours, the Ferrari front fender is bolted to the inner structure and also welded at the front and bottom seams where it lower nose panel is $428.56. Total for the Ferrari body parts is $5,927.23. On the Porsche, while the body parts are off, the damaged inner floor and spare-tire compartment must be replaced. The secondary frame and inner structure labor is 9.5 hours for a total of $332.50, while the new trunk floor part is $168.50. Modena 360: It all adds up to big bucks. panel, or apron, must be cut off, trimmed, custom fitted and welded into place at 6.0 hours. R&I the headlight assembly is 1.0 hour, while the brake ducting and air grille are 2.0 hours. R&I the carbon fiber front floor pan is 1.5 hours. To re-align the hood, latch and hinges is 1.5 hours. Total labor to R&I and overhaul the Ferrari body parts is 24.50 hours at an average rate of $55 for a total of $1,347.50. The new Ferrari bumper-spoiler assembly is $2,314; the brake duct, duct grille and seals total $231.29. The fender is $1,304.51 and the headlight assembly is $1,387.53. A new nose panel is $152.53 and the lower apron (under the nose panel) is $108.80. The carbon fiber Summarizing the Porsche 996 repair, we have the following: frame pull labor at $210 plus secondary inner frame labor, $332.50, for a total of $542.50. Frame and inner structure parts are $168.50. Body labor is $350 and parts are $2,541.36. Paint labor is $542.50 and paint materials are $350. Sales tax added an average of 8% (with substantial variations from state to state) at $244.78. The total repair estimate is $4,739.64. The labor for a near-identical crash to the labor-intensive and parts expensive Ferrari is substantially higher. Frame pull labor is $495 and secondary structure labor is $660, while sub-frame and inner structure parts added $1,078.95. Body labor is $1,347.50 while the lower volume and higher cost parts averaged $5,927.23. Paint labor charges are $997.50, and paint materials are $625. Add in sales tax (at 8%) for another $610.49 and the total repair estimate for our near-new Ferrari is $11,741.67. Further, while your 996 can be repaired in a matter of weeks, your 360 may be off the road for months while parts are sourced and flown in. There's no moral to this story, just a reaffirmation of what we already knew -Ferrari ownership is expensive. Just try to keep your 360 on the road, and your accountant and insurance agent will be much happier. • The Ferrari's aluminum inner secondary frame support structure, side cover panel and outer supports have absorbed most of the crash impact and must be replaced. The secondary frame labor is 12.0 hours for a total of $660, a new side panel is $476.97 and the new outer structure mounted below the fender is $418.95. Total for all new inner sub-frame structure parts is $1078.95. The paint quote for the Porsche comes from the labor rate manual with minimal variation from dealer to dealer, and averaged 15.5 hours at $35 an hour for a total of $542.50. There are no "book time" paint quote rates for the Ferrari and estimates varied from dealer to dealer with an average of 28.5 hours at $55 an hour for a total of $997.50. Paint materials for all cars are generally paid at a rate of about $22 per hour estimated. The Porsche paint materials were $350 (15.5 hours) while the Ferrari paint materials, on a longer time estimate of 28.5 hours, were $625. 31

Ask Mr. Kerb by Michael Duffey Send your collector car questions to Mr. Kerb, e-mail: mrkerb@compuserve.com, or snailmail to Mr Kerb, 6833 SE Pine Ct., Portland, OR 97215. A Baseball Card Is Worth More Than Your Car Dear Mr. Kerb: I have been hanging out at the local vintage races for about five years now. I have almost grown kids and spent most of my "good" years raising my family instead of participating in racing or any sport for that matter I read your reply to the reader with all of the questions about vintage Formula Ford racing (April 2000, page 14) and I still don't know i f I should take the plunge. What if I find a car, buy a trailer and tow rig, and it turns out I just don't like racing? Or even worse, I like it but turn out to be a slow driver?—RE, via e-mail Dear Mr. F: There is a solution. You can get experience on a racetrack before you buy a car or even a helmet by attending a driving school. There are one-day schools organized by various car clubs (like Porsche and BMW) but those require a sporty car and your own personal safety equipment. You don't mention if you already own anything suitable (no about to grind into submission. All of them survived the experience and by the end of day three, out on the track they looked and behaved like race drivers. It can cost a few thousand dollars to take the course but think of it this way—if you get "hooked" you will be confident and prepared. If it turns out that the reality of racing just doesn't work for you compared to your fantasies, well, you won't have to hold a garage sale to get rid of your barely used and expensive car, trailer, suit and helmet. As for the "quickness" question, I think that we all wish that we were better drivers and often think that some just have the gift or we lack the gift. Drivers can be taught and the ones that were taught when they were much younger seem like naturals to us. But really, if someone put you on a mini trail bike when you were five and go karts when you were eight (and you stuck with it) now you would probably be J.M. be busier watching your mirrors than the road ahead. Dear Mr. Kerb: I have been offered a mid- ' 8 Os MercedesBenz 300SL for a reasonable price. I looked in the Blue Book and couldfind a listing for the 380SL but not a 300SL. Somebody told me that it was a "gray market" car. The owner says that the car is legal and has a clear title. What is a gray market car? Are they worth less than the regular models? Should I buy it?—R. V, via e-mail Go to school before you buy the car sport utes or Fiat 600s), but if you want to give it a go in someone else's car you can attend one of the big professional schools like Jim Russell, Skip Barber, Bertil Roos, etc. You will have the benefit of their decades of experience teaching guys just like you. I have attended two schools over the last twenty years and I have seen guys show up who never drove a manual shift car, let alone a non-synchromesh gearbox like the one they were 34 Fangio IV. On the other hand, you most likely spent the last twenty years building a secure financial portfolio and creating a good life for your family. Being successful at your day job, and going racing in fun old cars on the weekends isn't really so bad, is it? You can increase your chances of not being last in the field by buying a car that is competitive in its class—if you try to race a Crosley Hot Shot in a field full of Alfa Giuliettas, you'll Dear Mr. V: Yes, a gray market car is worth less. The reasons become clear when you understand what the gray market was. The archetypal gray market car was the Mercedes 190E. I remember being offered nearly-new Euro-spec cars with roll-up windows and fabric interiors for $12,000 when a fully loaded US car was going for $22,000. Even though the European dealers weren't supposed to sell cars for export, they did. Dozens of conversion shops appeared and it seemed fairly easy to get one of those cars landed and converted for a total cost far below the MSRP of the US version. Since the cars were cheap, they were often purchased by check writers who had no need for financing and since they were very similar in appearance to the US cars, they could be insured as long as the insurance company didn't run a VIN check. For some reason, it just seems easier to get insurance on a car you already own outright than one that you are financing. As time went on, the conversion shops branched out to satisfy the demands of performance oriented buyers. This led to the importation of the Euro-only 500SL and 300SL. Compared to the sluggish and sometimes unreliable 380SL, the 500SL was special in both looks and performance and the 300 (though six-cylinder powered) had about sixty more horsepower than a US model, V8 powered 380SL. These cars were more expensive than cars like the 190E and the need for financing appeared. Since the cars were fmanced, they had to be insured. The gray market cars, like a 300 or 500SL are different in spec and appearance from the US SLs. This means that body repair, some interior parts, etc. will often be difficult for US shops to obtain and fit. There are also the non-US spec mechanicals and home-spun EPA/DOT work that, in the interest of profit, weren't always performed by the most talented or artistic mechanics. Being modified (and slipped into the country from a Euro dealer), the gray cars often had no warranty. This tenuous situation led to the bank's refusal to finance gray cars and insurance companies' refusal to insure them. To sell them, the gray market cars had to be significantly cheaper than the equivalent US model. Also, Euro models were often "down-market" with "tex" or fabric interiors, and lacked other convenience options that typically weigh down a US-model Benz. Should you buy it? You don't mention price, colors, originality, who did the conversion or mileage but I wouldn't run away from the 300SL if it is priced right. The powerplant is basically what you'll find under the hood of a 300E so the car is easily serviceable. If the car is clean, not painted tan or 7-Up bottle green and has reasonable mileage and service history, $10,000 sounds like a fair price. But make a quick call to your insurance agent to make sure they will cover the car. Dear Mt: Kerb: Jam looking to buy an '89 Volvo 240 four- Sports Car Market

door sedan. It 's in nice shape, with 110,000 miles. Power windows, power door locks, five-speed, heated seats, etc. The car passed a mechanic 's inspection. I was ready to hand the seller a check when I saw the car had a California salvage title. The seller says the car was hit in the right rear fender and repaired. Should I walk away or try to get a lower price? The asking price is $4,750. How much less is a car with a salvage title worth?—B.N., Portland, OR Dear Mr. N: The salvage title was invented to identify cars that were "totaled" by an insurance company and later rebuilt/repaired and put back on the road. The insurance company will only want to pay a certain percentage of a car's value when repairing a car as part of a damage claim. Fire damage, flood damage, theft recovery and vandalism are some examples of the kind of damage that can "total" a car. A salvage title is usually a scary proposition when it is for a late-model car. For instance, let's say you're BIKE 11 36  BUYS 1974 Triumph Trident T150V . isting Triumph 500cc vertical twin engine was a quick and easy way for Triumph to gain more punch in the horsepower competition of the late '60s. The Trident came with three Amal carburetors, three sets ofignition points, an oil cooler, and Smiths speedometer and tachometer. hree-cylinder motorcycle engines are rare compared to twins and fours. But adding a third cylinder to the ex- For a brief time, the Trident and its twin, the BSA Rocket 3, were on top of the heap, the fastest and quickest bikes around. But in 1969, Honda introduced its ground-breaking CB750, with four cylinders, electric start, front disc brake and five-speed transmission. It was years ahead of the Triumph in sophistication, and its equal in power. Triumph would never catch up, although a five-speed became optional in 1971 and '72, and standard in 1973. (The roman numeral V in the model number stands for five speeds.) First-generation Tridents were considered ugly, with squared-off "bread '74 Trident has a restyled gas tank. loaf' fuel tanks and quirky "raygun" mufflers. Dealers were offered a beauty kit in '69 and '70 to replace tanks and mufflers, making Tridents look more like the beloved Bonnevilles. American Craig Vetter designed the limitededition, 1973-only X75 Hurri- engines are complicated to work on, which keeps their prices down compared to twins. Today, you can replace the triple ignition points with a modern Rita or Boyer electronic ignition. The Trident was successful in racing, which increased its appeal looking at a new, $35,000, Volvo. To be considered totaled, the car would have to withstand about $30,000 in damage. Even at California's shop rate, that is a lot of damage. That new Volvo would probably not be repaired and make its trip to the last roundup, the salvage auction. There, junk yards bid for the hulk to pick its bones of salable bits. Now, by comparison, your 1989 240 is a car that can be totaled if it needs a new front bumper and some paint work. There are baseball cards worth more than an '89 240. If the car was totaled for non-structural damage, the car is probably okay. I checked around and a five-speed 240 has a retail value of $5,850. It sounds as if the car has already been discounted $1,000 or so. Remember, no matter what the price, when the time comes for you to sell the car, the same stain will exist on its history. You'll have to explain the title and I'm sure that some buyers will want to walk because the title says "salvage" and doesn't say, "totaled but it really wasn't too bad."• Ferrari Mini Profile continued from page 30. - as being the most desirable and valuable." Perhaps. But asking which series TdF is the most desirable is like asking which '95 French cabernet is the best. Many serious collectors would put the later, 14-louver cars at the top of the heap. Supposedly, the owner of a well-raced 14-louver TdF has turned down $2 million (SCM July 2000, page 6). Still others prefer any of the forty-five covered-headlight, 3- or 1- louver cars. From the point of verified sales, the highest recent price was for one of the three lightweight double-bubble Zagato TdFs, $1.7 millionfor 0665 (one of two built in the second series of TdFs). Any car that has been in a museum for thirty-two years, even if it 's a museum in a castle as 0507 was, is going to require serious mechanical work before the new owner blasts away at the next TdF or MM retrospective. Bottom line, 0507 has a well-known provenance, some competition history, and a cobbled-up, partially original body. It's a nice but not great TdF and Brooks revealed all the salient facts. But 0507 may need complete mechanical restoration. It definitely needs a new tail and maybe a nose before making its debut in proper Ferrari society. $100200,000 should get the job done. Thus, like most restoration projects, it was probably a bit overpriced. However, the new owner of 0507 is not a dot-com novice with stars in his eyes and stock options in his pockets. It was purchased by an East Coast SCM subscriber who has previously bought project cars and taken them to Class and Best of Show wins at Pebble Beach. He knew exactly what he was buying and paid exactly what he thought was a fair price for this particular piece of merchandise. As the prices of TdFs, SWBs and GTOs continue to rise, this car was simply the best unrestored example available on the day of sale, and the price redefines the current market. Upwards, again.—John Apen (Photo and description courtesy of auction company) • cane, a Trident with three pipes and mufflers swept to the right side of the bike, and a gas tank design that flowed visually into the side panels. Electric start came along in 1975 on the Trident T160, a new model with left-side gearshift, inclined engine, and rear disc brake. On the T160, the final year of the Trident, the factory fixed many of the quality-control flaws of the early bikes. Even so, Trident to buyers when new. However, most collectors today prefer '60s Triumph Bonneville twins to any of the three-cylinder Tridents. Reasonably priced, if properly maintained, a Trident will let you out-run a Bonnie while providing superb handling and a bit of exclusivity.—Bill Neill.

 F rom Mecum's muscle cars at St. Paul, Minnesota to the barn-find Maserati 5000 GT Brooks Europe hawked in Monaco, this issue of SCM truly takes you around the world. Our onsite reports from Christie's L.A., Barrett-Jackson/Coys Monaco, Poulain, Mecum and Brooks provide an intimate, first-hand look at the condition of what's crossing the block, what it's selling for and why. The focus of the collector car world was on Monaco in May, where Poulain, Brooks and Barrett-Jackson/Coys went at it on the same weekend. All emerged triumphant, with plenty of bidders for everyone. Personable Simon Kidston, assisting Malcolm Barber, put on the most bidder-friendly show of the weekend, and had the best, original kit on offer. Craig Jackson pulled a rabbit out of his hat by teaming up with Jeffrey Pattinson and Coys at the last moment, sold $5.6M worth of cars and wowed the European audiences with the size of the tent and the professionalism of the evening. AUCTIC)Nin EPORT1IIMMIM Rg 43 ROOKS Europe Brooks, Europe Fontvieille, Monaco May 27, 2000 Auctioneer: Malcolm Barber Number of automotive lots: 64 Number of automotive lots sold: 46 Sale rate: 72% Sale total: $6,264,783 High: Lot #187, 1965 Ferrari 275 GTB Speciale Competition Coupe sold for $837,312 Buyer's premium on sold lots included: 15% on the first $46,800, 10% thereafter through the tunnel, Simon Kidston's Genevabased Brooks Europe office enjoyed a good auction, achieving the best sale rate of the weekend, as well as some very strong prices for their clients and the market. 0 Brooks' $330,000 Maserati frightpig. The low-key Poulain event was especially entertaining as all of the non-French speaking bidders in the audience tried to figure out what they were bidding on, and how much they were spending. Next time around, a little English translation would be greatly appreciated by all. Even with over 150 cars covered in detail this issue, we still have literally hundreds more in the SCM files for this month that we don't have room to list. You'll be able to find all those cars, and additional auctions such as Brooks UK, Hendon, at our on-line repository of data, www.eCarCentral.com . Within the next few months, our goal is to examine, evaluate and photograph every car that crosses the block, at every significant auction in the world, on a regular basis. If you're a qualified appraiser or inspector of collectible automobiles, and would like to join the expanding team of SCM auction reporters and market analysts, e-mail me at kmartin@sportscarmarket.com .—K.M SCM 1-6 Scale Condition Rating 1: National concours standard/perfect. 2: Very good, club concours, some small flaws. 3: Average daily driver in decent condition. 4: Still a driver but with some apparent flaws. 5: A nasty beast that runs but has many problems. 6: A non-running car in wretched physical condition that is probably only good for parts. 38  Although the top-of-the-bill lot failed to change hands under the hammer, the 1953 Ferrari 375 Mille Miglia in Argentinean colors actually very nearly sold with three bidders in the room spotted and an underbidder appearing to be in the frame at $1,785,714. Four weekends later, however, the sports racer, last restored in 1998 by Rob Shanahan, was still very much for sale in the same auctioneer's tent at Goodwood, where it was available by private treaty. It was therefore left to two more very Grand Tourer Ferraris to head the results. A USentered and Patrick Ottis-refreshed 1965 275 GTB Speciale Competition, for which Swiss buyer Albert Obrist is said to have paid $2.9M in 1989, fetched $837,312. A 1956 250 GT with 1959 Tour de France form, which had resided in a Danish Castle collection for the last thirty-two years, brought $758,523. Even with a non-original engine, an exMatsuda Collection of Japan 1955 Porsche 550RS did well to raise $435,489 and much applause. However, by far the most extraordinary performance was that of an ex-Aga Khan, Frua-bodied 1962 Maserati 5000 GT restoration project. This car had been acquired by its vendor in very distressed, though original condition in an Egyptian government auction in Cairo. At the Brooks sale, it sold for a mindboggling $333,063. Despite the major presence of a combined Report by Richard Hudson-Evans Market opinions in italics ccupying their now-usual pitch within Prince Rainier's Car Collection building in the relatively new and now mellowed chunk of the Principality show by US masters Barrett-Jackson and Coys of Kensington just down the road at the Circus Espace on the same night, and Parisian Poulain mounting a warm-up fixture for the weekend on the previous evening, Brooks still prospered. For while the competition for bidders had trebled, far more potential buyers had come to town not only for these three auctions, but also for the glorious sights and sounds of a program of historic races on the Fl circuit, the weekend before the World Championship event.—R.H-E.

TZs have recoveredfrom their $125K days, but may never again see the $750K numbers of the '80s. This was a very good car #187-1965 FERRARI 275 GTB SPECIALE COMPETITION Coupe.

Mid-estimate performance and probably not expensive for pretty, pre-steroidal Lambo. An infinitely better car than the similarly-priced 250 speciale coupe, but will never have the magic of a prancing horse on the nose. A decent buy. #154-1968 FERRARI 206 GT DINO BERLINETTA Coupe. Body by Pininfarina. SN 206GT*00386. 6-cyl. Blood orange/black. LHD. Odo: 2,194 kms. Factory mag. Last Jackie Ickx for winning three GPs, and then owned by Nick Mason of Pink Floyd. Apparently still original, though with hood marked by brake fluid. Cond: 2. SOLD AT $99,848. Nice history with two famous owners on file and all original. Very good buy, I thought, and well worth mid-forecast money paid by British collector Daytonas continue to languish, with average cars in the $100K range and superb ones hitting $150K. #192-1974 LANCIA STRATOS Coupe. Body by Bertone. S/N 1571. Eng.# 829A.000. 12-cyl. Red/black. LHD. Odo: 946 kms. Chrome wires. An ex-Renzo Sinibaldi '66 race car. Other owners were Dr. Bailey of GA, Al Allin of TX and Swiss Ferrari collector Albert Obrist, who paid $2.9M, and then had no-expense restoration carried out by Brandoli and Fantuzzi, and 44  restored pre-1988 when purchased from Autoluce, who fitted new Ferrari-supplied engine.

In stunning original and still perfect condition-shame about the color! Cond: 1. SOLD AT $101,423.

Once heard, Scarab at full howl can never be forgotten! - peared to knock down a smaller percentage of the stock than Brooks Europe at their Monaco auction, half the lots changed hands, some apparently raising very strong money, while what was the final auction event of the trio on offer to consumers pulled in by far the most punters. Topping the results and selling for $916,190 was the 1959 Turin Show-exhibited and subsequently Angola GP-winning Ferrari 250 GT short-wheelbase "Competizione," which had been the recent subject of a mint restoration by UK specialists DK Engineering. Other big money movers were the ex-Hawthorn/Maglioli 1953 625 TF sports, the exBaron de Graffenried 1954 Maserati 250F single-seater and the ex-works 1936 Talbot Lago T150C sports, for which $746,777, $742,836 and $687,680 were forthcoming. The 1953 Brussels Show Ferrari 212 coupe, saved from a Cuban fate by a Milwaukee enthusiast in 1958, cost a new owner $313,395 and the 1931 Invicta 4.5-liter S Type low-chassis with fourseater Vanden Plas tourer body, so often enjoyed in public by British Member of Parliament and collector, the late Alan Clark, was declared sold for $289,757. Barrett-Jackson/Coys of Kensington Fontvieille, Monaco May 27, 2000 Cesaris drove this non-turbo Fl to capture pole position at Long Beach in its only GP, in US, where "De Crasheris" led for 14 laps and held second for 18 laps before crashing.

Factory mags. Only driven for 1,500 miles and claimed never to have been taken out in rain. Still like new. Cond: 1. SOLD AT $207,000. Top quality F40, and top money, which will probably not impress seller who is said to have had to invest several times list price to secure this F40 during the boom days. Unusual to find a Euro F40 garage queen. Hope they check the turbo seals. August, 2000  Jackson enlisted the services of London auctioneering dealers Coys of Kensington not only to boost entries, but also to provide them with the necessary infrastructure for staging a major sale a long way from Arizona. The US/Anglo team set up their shop down by the Heliport within the huge space normally occupied by the Monaco circus in a venue last employed for a collector car auction by Sotheby's at the peak of the 1987-89 boom. This, incidentally, was the last time a trio of auction houses held sales in the Principality during the same weekend. H It was Coys who staffed the rostrum with appily, in view of the low number of consignments that had been secured as catalog press day loomed for their first venture onto the Monte Carlo auction circuit, Barrett- Other stronger-than-forecast performances under the gavel were put up by a 1933 Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 Supercharged Zagato-bodied Gran Sport roadster, twenty-one years in one US owner's hands, for which $285,816 was paid and, despite having clearly been dormant for the past thirty years in the Walter Grell Collection in Switzerland, the time-warp 1967 Cooper-Maserati driven by Vic Elford at Monaco in 1969 to become the last Cooper ever to run in a GP, made $187,322. Coys brought many Grell cars to the party and all did well, among them another Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 thought to have been built in 1933 with US-inspired cabriolet body crafted in 1940 by Willy Bernath. Despite being scabby and in need of a makeover, it attracted $145,559. Other unspoiled, though faded originals, a 1949 Delahaye 135MS with cabrio coachwork by Chapron and a Mille Miglia Retro-eligible 1949 Osca MT4 with much period race provenance, pulled $121,800 and $128,223 respectively. Instead of taking on the rival Brooks event head-to-head and missing out on some of the potential bidders who might have still been up the road in the Rainier Museum, the US/Anglo auctioneers wisely delayed their start time so those auction junkies who wanted to take in both sales could do so. However, whether B-J, who were one of the major sponsors of the Monaco AC's historic racer weekend, and/or Coys will be back for more—either together or independently-remains to be seen.. .although if they don't put their towel down quickly to bag a pitch for next year, they may find that there is no room on the 45

For Christie's have been here before, while a Monaco sale could provide RM with a very high profile foothold into the Euro market. After a long and hot, though well-staged evening by B-J and Coys, your correspondent couldn't help wondering whether there would be room for any more auctions in Monaco? And if more houses do take to the field, will there be enough buyers and, perhaps more importantly, enough decent sale entries to go round? Stay tuned to SCM to find out.—R.H-E.

Still very good cosmetically and, from recent participation in Liege-Rome-Liege, working well. Cond: 1-. SOLD AT $183,381. On-the-button for more retro action and raising slightly more than recent 3.5-liter powered SS100s. These make perfect rally cars in the US—just beware of replacement engines from saloons. #48-1962 AC ACE BRISTOL Roadster. S/N BEX 446. Silver metallic/dark green leather. Original Gurney Weslake Ford engine changed for current Mathwall Engineering rebuilt F5000 Chevy during 1988 restoration in UK by Simon Hadfield. Regularly exercised, though not abused since. Cond: 2+. SOLD AT $91,977. Nice working condition, allegedly, and relatively easy to run. Strong money for F5000.

S/N 800 727. 6cyl. Faded blue, gold/marked blue, gold. Entered by Colin Crabbe's Antique Auto. private team and driven by Elford at Monaco 31 years ago—last Cooper to run in GP. In unrestored shabby state in colors of later owner after 30 years of gathering dust in Grell Collection. Cond: 3-. SOLD AT $187,322. Good history and offering enormous potential for historic GP racing, hence just over high estimate price paid. Guaranteed entry to nearly every event on the planet. It is cars like this that are driving the market forwards. #81-1968 MCLAREN MlOB F5000 Single-Seater. S/N 16. Blue. First raced in South Africa by former bike racer Paddy Driver. LHD. Odo: 3,815 kms. Bucket seats. Chrome wires. Aluminum body. Subjected to 2-year restoration only completed 1999 with photorecord. Freshly rebuilt engine, too, apparently. Cond: 1-. SOLD AT $77,793. Very high price, this, for Bristol-engined Ace, albeit original LHD car in very nice condition with overdrive and discs. While more nimble than their hairychested Cobra brethren, Aces still lag $50K behind in market value. #58-1967 COOPER-MASERATI T86 V12 Fl Single-Seater. S/N F1-2-67. 12-cyl. Cream, red stripe. Ex-factory team run Fl. cally, and very freshly prepared for historic racing by top firms Hall and Fowler and ADA Eng. Cond: 1. NOT SOLD AT $228,571. Nice history, lovely condition and bags of potential in retro 3-liter GP events were clearly not enough for this audience, none of whom were prepared to meet reserve, which had probably been set too high.

Rare opportunity to buy for mid-estimate price genuine and complete example of largest Bug produced (with exception, of course, of T46 Royale).

Rare and, being so very well preserved, offering unique buying opportunity. Cond: 2. SOLD AT $742,836. Considering desirability of 250F, maybe price paid for this one was not expensive.

Their sales continue to cater largely to their home market with catalogs largely in French and sales conducted in high-speed French with few allowances for non-French speakers from other countries—and that includes Germans and Italians as well as English-speakers. he Sotheby's logo has been appearing on the front of Poulain Le Fur catalogs for some months now. But apart from the solo attendance ofJames Morton from Sotheby's London Collectors In Monaco—or, to be absolutely accurate as the sale venue of the Monte Carlo Beach Hotel is situated a few yards outside the Principality—in France, Poulain conducted their sale, the first of three such auctions during this year's Historic Racing weekend, entirely in French via a crackly public-address system. Firstly, Poulain's in-house expert Marc Souvrain read out a happily brief catalog summary. (He could have just as well have been relating the evening's dinner menu for all the mostly non-French speaking audience would have known.) Then, Maitre Herve Poulain himself rattled away from the rostrum, snatching any bids that were going from floor, official telephones or wall, whilst a bid spotter rushed up and down the aisle in manic fashion trying to identify where the highest real bid was coming from. If the final offer met or exceeded reserve, a clerk with pad and pen was dispatched into the audience to try to locate the bidder, who was still unregistered at this point, and obtain their details in front of everyone else. Further compounding the confusion was a lack of a currency conversion board, so bidders had to both interpret the French numbers and then convert those numbers into their native currencies at a fairly rapid pace. On a very hot night in this long and narrow room beside the hotel's swimming pool, the French house did definitely secure buyers (one of whose representatives insisted that he bid and bought in US dollars!) for just ten cars. . . • • • • • • • • • and there were only twenty-two lots to start with. However, amongst the sellers were some very big money motor cars, so the sale total probably made stand-alone economic sense for the auctioneers. Fortunately for Poulain and their clients, the sun shone brightly and it did not rain during viewing as all the sale entries, which were displayed poolside or in the hotel's parking lot, were fully exposed to the elements. If the Paris house does set up their rostrum by the Med again next year, it is to be hoped that some concessions may be made to cater for the very international crowd, which would be so much better served by the sale being conducted in English. However, in this reporter's view, the Paris house did produce the most up-market of the three Monaco sales catalogs.—R.H-E. ENGLISH CARS #7-1927 BENTLEY 6.5 LITRE SPEED SIX Tourer.

August, 2000  lthough the sale rate at the Petersen sale was decent enough, overall this event won't rank among Christie's great successes. Aside from the over-the-top Healey at We were surprised that Christie's chose not to have Miles Morris or Malcolm Barber fulfill the role held by the row-departed David Gooding, filling in the details of the car on the block for the bidders and complementing the low-key style of Dermot Chichester. Each lot was presented without fanfare, without drama and essentially without excitement. While this was good for those in a buying mood, ultimately it worked to the detriment of the consignors. Christie's does a first-rate job in its catalog preparations, and promotes its auctions heavily. However, American audiences seem to want to be cajoled and encouraged beyond what an English-based auction house might consider proper. It was a major concession when Christie's began to drive cars across the block, American-style, at their American auctions some years back. (In Europe the bidders are satisfied to bid from slides of the lot.) A little flash and glitter, when dealing with flashy, glittering cars, might go a long way towards encouraging more bidders to put up more paddles, more frequently. $64,625, the original but slightly ropey Porsche 356C at $30,550 and the attractive but what'sin-the-rockers Alfa SS, most of the cars sold went away at a wholesale level.

A true Hemi-car that caused the most excitement in an otherwise unfocused auction arena. Both Rob Myers and Craig Jackson were all over this car at $20K. However, at $38K, with the work needed, this was a retail price. the street rod scene is definitely in vogue. Last year, Mecum Auctions teamed up with the MSRA and pitched a few tents on one side of the fairgrounds and tried hawking a few cars. It proved to be quite successful (actually better than this year), even with rain on Saturday. This year, Mecum made a few improvements to their facilities, namely a very efficient routing of cars to the auction block and vastly larger auction tent, even if it was on gravel. They also put their full effort in promoting the sale towards the street rod and muscle car market. This niche marketing is proving to work quite well with Mecum. Before the Saturday segment, Dana Mecum commented, "I'm seeing the same thing with street rods here as Corvettes at our Bloomington sale. For a typical, say, Chevy, you'd have to work your buyers pretty hard. When a street rod was on the block yesterday, buyers were popping up all over the tent actively bidding." What were they buying? Nice muscle cars and street rods.

Mitchell Carlson Market opinions in italics ow in its 27th year, the Minnesota Street Rod Association's (MSRA) "Back To The '50s" weekend has been well established amongst the street rod com- munity for decades as one of the venues to attend. Hershey is the only regularly scheduled annual automotive event that is larger. For three days, MSRA totally engulfs the Minnesota State Fairgrounds in St. Paul with over 9,000 vehicles manufactured before 1965, ofall types, on hand. It could best be described as a cross between Meadow Brook and Sturgis. Barrett-Jackson's exposition sales coordinator Ed Fallon regularly attends (and not just because he is originally from here), plus a host of the Scottsdale auction regulars were spotted on site. Now that there is a street rod class at Pebble Beach and that rodder SCM-subscriber Bruce Meyer was selected as last year's Meguiar's Collector Car Person of the Year, This sale left no doubt that the current auction buyers want cars in which they can turn the key and drive away with no work, problems, or stories. This is a marked change for the market in this region, which is noted for being, quite frankly, painfully cheap. At this auction bottom-feeder cars couldn't be given away, in one case literally. A number 5 condition 1946 Chevrolet canopy express "huckster" was towed across the block, and was promptly met by absolutely no bids. There was also a notable lack of foreign cars this year. One was left with the impression that any out-of-town consignors of those cars were kindly asked to ship their cars to Mecum/Elkhart Lake next month. Bidder and spectator attendance was strong throughout both days, only starting to fall off with the last fifteen or so vehicles. The sales rate was fairly consistent. Considering all of these factors, it is little wonder that the Back To The '50s event will be a highlight for the Mecum organization in the foreseeable future.—B.MC.

Classt ihr Afforda 1965 Mustang Convertible Sally's was only one of the 680,000 Mustangs that were sold in 1964-65 as the car that Lee Iococca and his committee of eight designed wildly exceeded sales projections. ilson Pickett caught the mood of the nation when, in his blues song, Mustang Sally, he sang "I bought you a brand new Mustang 'bout nineteen sixty-five." The Mustang was introduced in March of 1964 and those built up to August of that year are often referred to as "641/2s" although that was not an official factory designation. Adding to the naming confusion, Mustangs built before August 17th, 1964, equipped with generators and a GEN warning light, are often referred to as "early '65s." Those built after August 17th, alternator-equipped and with an ALT warning light, are called "late '65s." Engines in the late '65s are more powerful; the 200 ci six-cylinder picked up nineteen horsepower (120 hp) and the 2-barrel and 4-barrel versions of the 289 cubic inch V8s were boosted to 200 and 225 horsepower. The tire-burner's delight was the high-performance K-code 289 ci, 271 hp engine, a $276 option, introduced in June of 1964 and only available with a four-speed manual transmission. The coveted "Pony" interior—indicated by a "B" on the body code stamping on the warranty plate—included embossed ponies on the seats and a five-instrument dash. Introduced in March of 1965, the codes and introduction dates are significant since there is a dramatic diminution in value if a Pony interior is a recent, aftermarket addition rather than original. The most desirable 1965 Mustang convertibles are the Indianapolis 500 Pace Cars used in the 1964 race. Two were used for the actual race and thirty-five others were given to race dignitaries. Painted Pace Car White, and equipped with a 260 cubic inch V8 and automatic transmission, they rarely come up for sale and don't fit the definition of affordable when they do. finding an original vehicle will be difficult since the numbers work against us. Only 5,300 of the 99,000 1965 convertibles were ordered with the Pony interior, only 7,200 of all the 681,000 Mustangs had the K-code engine and 15,000 had the GT Equipment Group. The subset containing all three options is rare indeed. However, a non-K-code, non-pony, rust-free convertible with a 260/289 and an extensive list of options, even if added aftermarket, will provide a ride with a lot of eye appeal, more than adequate performance for every day driving, acceptable appreciation and best of all, reliable transportation with a readily available parts supply. All Mustang parts have a date code that is either stamped or cast into the part and the date could be as much as thirty days prior to the actual build date. Make sure that the codes on the door and fender plates match. There are a host of Mustangs originally built as six-cylinder cars that now sport V8 engines. Shun them unless they are offered at a 50% discount from normal market. Check for rust and if you must have a six-cylinder, avoid the manual transmission unless you want to be on a first-name basis with the transmission shop.—Carl Bonistead• Years produced  "Ride, Sally ride." The ideal Mustang convertible, in terms of current market value, would have the K-code engine, air conditioning, Pony interior and the GT Equipment Group which consists of the Special Handling Package, rocker panel stripes, manual front disc brakes, grille-mounted fog lamps, chrome exhaust trumpets and GT emblems. (These options would have added about a thousand dollars to the $2,557 base price in 1965). Today, this car, in excellent condition, would be worth more than $30,000.

 L 1985 Porsche 944 Owners: Jeff & Trevor Clinard, Irvine, CA Purchase price and date: $9,000, November, 1999 Mileage since purchase: 3,866 Recent work: Cam belt and brake hoses $1,150; fuel tank leak $40; new battery $106; repair clutch slave $90 When we last appeared in "Our Cars" (November 1999, page 38) we were waxing enthusiastically about our '79 Alfetta Sport Sedan and our plans to restore it. Those plans were derailed by a burned valve. A week after we parked the Alfa, our dad made a remarkable discovery. . .a one-owner 1985 Porsche 944 with 8,674 miles on it, painted Kalahari Metallic ("silver gold") with black leather. Everything original, correct and likenew. Cosmoline still underneath. The car was owned from new by a Michigan cabinetmaker who stored it in his workshop with a cover over it, drove it only on clear summer days, and almost never got it wet. All our Alfa-restoration money (ten years of saving paid oft.) went into buying the 944 instead. We bought the car for $9,000, paid a friend $400 to trailer it from Chicago to California, paid $1,150 to replace the cam belt and fit laterstyle oil cooler seals, installed braided brake hoses and recharged the A/C (all preventive stuff, just to play it safe). Today the car has 12,540 miles on it. It's fantastic to drive, a brand-new 1985 944. We've had four problems: a leak in the fuel tank at the drain plug ($40), the car was stranded once with a leaking clutch slave ($90), we replaced the tired battery ($106), and the rear wiper pivot stripped (Dad fixed that by drilling a hole through the shaft and inserting a sawed-off nail. . all neatly hidden by the wiper arm base that folds over the shaft—cost zero). It's definitely the coolest car in the parking lot at University High School and it makes waiting to fix the Alfa much more bearable. 1965 Jaguar E-type OTS Owner: Csaba Csere, Ann Arbor, MI Purchase price and date: $26,000, September, 1996 Total original mileage: 46,500? Recent work: new windshield, dash top, steering column bushings, tires ered headlights, triple carbs, the 4.2liter engine and all-synchro gearbox. The car had enjoyed a pampered life, with original paint, perfect panel fits, and only the slightest surface rust despite a lifetime in the Midwest. After sixteen years of evaluating different new cars every day for Car and Driver magazine, with no expenses for gas, insurance, and repairs, I was overcome, four years ago, by the inexplicable compulsion to own a car of my own. I had longed for a Jaguar E-type since, as a teenager riding my bicycle in the mid-'60s, I spied one posing in a manicured yard in Shaker Heights, Ohio. After examining nine cars ad- vertised in Hemmings that intersected with my travels, I found a lovely car under my nose in Ann Arbor. It was a 1965 Series I OTS (Open Two-Seater in Jaguar parlance) with the small bumpers, coy- 70  Though the car was fundamentally sound, it was hardly detail perfect. The radiator expansion tank had pinhole leaks. The brake booster was on strike. And the grabby rear brakes promptly locked up solid. With the inboard discs on the E-type, this latter repair entailed dropping the rear subframe, which motivated a complete rebuild of the rear end. I did it myself over the course of nine months. Overall, the E-type has proven to be even more fun than I expected. With its less-than-concours bodywork, I drive it regularly on local errands and I'm always delighted by its excellent ride, rigid structure, and the incomparable view over its voluptuous hood. Though my Etype sees maybe 1,000 miles a year, I fully intend to keep it forever.

Once the valves were adjusted and carburetors synched by Gerry Follett, the car ran like the 300 bhp lead-sled that it is. However, for some reason the blowby increased to the point where the fumes were noticeable in the passenger compartment. We took the car to Brian Ross at AutoKrafty, and he ran tubes from the crankcase ventilation points at the front of the engine bay into gulp valves he installed on the exhaust system. "It's what they do on pro stock cars," he said. "Creates negative pressure in the crankcase which helps the rings work better, and puts all the smelly gunk behind you." The car now runs even better, and we're not going to worry about the oily mess we're depositing on the grille of the Lincoln Navigator sitting behind us at the stoplight. The chrome shop called today and said the rear bumper, after only nine months, had been straightened and rechromed and was ready to be picked up. Aside from a bunch of either mis-calibrated (engine and water temp) or non-working (gas) gauges, the only thing we're now trying to figure out is why, when the dipstick shows one quart low on oil, the oil pressure disappears under moderate braking or cornering. Sheehan murmured something about dropping the front lower pan and putting swinging gates on the sump section that surrounds the oil pickup, but I pretended not to hear him. The hot rod guy, Ferrari swinging-gate-sump-specialist-tobe, probably won't return my calls after reading this. 1973 Porsche 911S Owner: Scott Johnston, Bend, OR Purchase price and date: $15,000, August, 1998 Mileage since purchase: 6,000 Recent work: New bare-metal paint job, piston rings, rubber hub and a cylinder adjustment the engine and transmission to prevent soda from getting into any spots it shouldn't. My 1973 Porsche 911S was the subject of an "Our Cars" report in June of 1999. At that point I had owned the car about eight months, driven it about 4,000 miles and performed a bunch of deferred maintenance and was smitten with the car and its originality. It has performed flawlessly and been very rewarding to drive. The twenty-seven-year old silver paint was looking pretty shabby. Having an excellent painter in my employ at my restoration shop, I decided to do a quick freshen up. Soda blasting is my preferred method to strip a car back to bare metal without disturbing the original steel surface finish, so I removed While the engine was out, I decided to do a little detailing. This bit of cosmetic housekeeping led to a full top-end engine overhaul when I found a mouse nest built out of fiberglass house insulation sitting over the top of the left bank of cylinders. Visions of cooked rings and my compulsion propelled me deeper. What we found was no surprise; piston rings which had lost their temper, cylinders out of round, and a clutch disc's rubber hub that was breaking up. All this on an engine that had good compression, never smoked and hardly leaked a drop of oil. In retrospect I'm glad to have discovered all of these faults, but it has turned a two-week repaint into a three-month major job that has had to fit in between work on customers' cars. I should have it back on the road in July to enjoy the rest of the summer.• Sports Car Market

Future CLASSICS T 1997-1999 Porsche Boxster 2.5 he Porsche Boxster 2.5 (19971999) is a future classic. It was the first vehicle developed by a revamped Porsche manufacturing system capable of making low- volume yet profitable sports cars while retaining the performance and panache of a Porsche. The Boxster was no thinly veiled attempt to sell cars with a Stuttgart crest to those who couldn't afford the real thing, as the 914-4 and 924 so clearly were. As a used car, the original Boxster is quickly falling into the low- to mid-thirties, and as such, represents an excellent value against similar year 911 values that can be almost twice as much. The Boxster is a return to the traditional Porsche virtues of crisp handling packaged in small but not tiny dimensions; a wonderfully controlled ride that gives go-kart style agility without the pounding so typical of other "high performance" cars, and the structural soundness that has become an enduring trademark of the marque. Like the 356s and 911s, the Boxster causes necks to crane as you drive by. You end up wanting to go for a drive even if you have no place to go.

Sports Car Market On the specification sheet, the Boxster looks like a contemporary race car, with a sophisticated mid-engine layout and a sizable 2.5-liter, 6-cylinder powerplant that puts out more horsepower, at 204 hp, than the 3liter 911 SC (1978-1983).

Summary Like the earliest Speedsters, the first-generation Boxster will have a collectible appeal for the Porsche fanatic who wants the first, purest version of a particular Porsche model. The Boxster takes the best from the past and mates it with advanced production technology to create a fully modern car still completely in touch with the original virtues of both the 356 and 911 series. attempt to inject a bit of differentiation into the more costly 911. Both the original 911 (already a classic) and the Boxster offer styling that is innovative and breathtaking. At the original introduction of the 911 in 1963, the body lines were immediately recognized as unique, attractive and definitive. The same can be said about the lines of the Boxster. On the road, the 911 looked ahead of its time for at least a decade, and the 996 variant still turns heads today. The lines of the Boxster are aging well, unlike so many contemporary Japanese sports cars (think 300ZX). The Boxster had its share of early production woes, but these were relatively quickly sorted out. With fixes made, because of the modern manufacturing techniques, even the first cars are now perfectly usable, driveable machines. No collapsed chain-tensioners or elongating engine studs to worry about here. Prices are falling, making the original Boxster $10-20K cheaper than a new Boxster S. Don't go for a test drive unless you are serious. It's a car you won't want to step out of, and twenty years from now, it will definitely have a following.—Jim Schrager• vINTAGE A  - 41 ( 410ToRcPki Established 1979 9848 SOUTHWEST FREEWAY, HOUSTON, TX 77074 713-541-2281 • FAX 713-541-2286 1971 M kSERATI 61-11131.1 4.9 SYDER Reclitan leather. 1st 4.9 spyder made, 5-speed, wire wheels, factory A/C, completely restored 5 years ago.

Etceterini & Friends Maker Place 1961 Abarth Simca 1300 Si M Chassis number: 0054 ost people associate Abarth with Fiat, but a very successful liaison was also formed with Simca. The French company was partly owned by Fiat, and when they wanted to appeal to a younger market with a more sporting image, they turned to the Italian giant for help. Fiat in turn went to Abarth, who received sponsorship from the larger company. A deal was struck whereby Simca shipped floorpans of their 1000 Sabour to Abarth, who then cut 4" out of the chassis and built handsome lightweight aluminum bodies around them. The engine was an all-Abarth 1300cc four-cylinder twin-cam unit which produced up to 140 bhp and was mounted in the rear, while suspension was nearly stock Simca 1000, incorporating a transverse front leaf spring with telescopic dampers and upper wishbones and rear semi-trailing arms a la Porsche. With this car, Abarth won the World Championship for Makes in 1962. The racing version of the Abarth Simca was developed throughout the 1960s, and the winning design was found to be more than a match for its competitors. In two-liter, 202 bhp specification, the Simca Abarth was easily able to beat the Porsche 904 on the track and won the European Mountain Climb Challenge outright. This particular Abarth Simca is in gloriously original condition. As part of the important Grell collection, this car was effectively withdrawn straight from its contemporary racing career into the safe and secure environment of the museum. Finished in the attractive period lime green color scheme, this early car is a rare example of one of the most competitive sports racing cars of the 1960s. The car pictured sold for $45,578 at the Barrett-Jackson/Coys of Kensington Auction on May 27, 2000 in Monaco. Simca got its start in the '30s, building basic Fiats under license. By the late '50s, it was doing poorly with its bland (and not too reliable) sedans. It turned to Abarth to boost its image. In '61 Abarth took thefour-door Simca Mille (944cc), bored the engine to 1150cc and added the usual Abarth stuff to make it go. Unfortunately, visually the car made the Edsel look like a brilliant stylistic success. Undeterred, the new partners pressed on. In 1962 the Abarth Simca 1300 was born. It had a brand new all-Abarth engine (cast-iron block, twin-cam alloy head, three main crank, and twin 45 DCOE9 Webers). The claimed horsepower was 130 at 8,000 rpm. The Simca Sabour chassis (shortened by Abarth), its archaic transverse leaf spring front suspension retained, complemented a four-speed gearbox, four-wheel disc brakes, and an attractive alloy body. A twin-plug, twin-distributor head was offered as an option (although I've never seen one), as was a six-speed gearbox. Number produced  Years produced  Original list price  SCM Price Guide  Chassis #  It was an interesting but grossly overpriced car In rapid succession, the 1300 second series was introduced (chopped tail, fiberglass nose), then the 1600cc (five main bearings) and in '64 the twoliter 200 hp (with huge 58 mm Webers) was la August, 2000  Engine #  Club  Alternatives  Epitaph: In '67, the English Abarth distributor bought from the factory about forty engineless and partially finished cars. Finished with 124 Fiat push-rod engines, they languished unsold for years. Regardless of the powerplant, the cars were lousy sellers from day one. They were very expensive and undriveable on the street. The factory cars won everything in carefully selected events, but there was zero support for the privateers. Spares were hard to get and very expensive. This car chassis 130S*0054, was definitely an early car: roundtail, single-plug head and four-speed gearbox. Recent paint (yellow fading to lime at bottom) hid the horrors that lurked below. It was described as "in gloriously original condition "—translation: needs a complete (and expensive) redo. In addition to the work needed, I could not find the chassis number—which does not help. Since I could not get an answer regarding the existence of FIA paperwork, which is crucial for a European car for competition eligibility, I assume that (as with most Grell cars) there was none. (because of homologation requirements Abarth claimed 100 per year; the real number was fewer than 50 per year) $6,500-9,000 N/A Tune-up/major service  Unknown, but it is wise to be preapproved for a home equity loan. (or anywhere else you find it) Abarth Register USA, 1298 Birch St., Uniondale, NY 11553 Fiat Abarth 1000GT Bialbero piece de resistance. The primitive front suspension made the two-liter treacherous to drive, with the front end lifting at high speed. Chrysler bought Simca in 1965, which ended the noble experiment. On the right front inner fender, near the windshield On the block below carburetors (a la Alfa) Putting the value on an obscure car is an arcane art, about as accurate as reading tea leaves. These cars are seldom, if ever, on the open market. I know of one 1300 in the US, which is completely apart; the owner would sell it for $80K. (I call his price an exercise in the First Amendment.) I also know of two two-liter cars for sale in Europe: a "nice" French car for $80K, and a fully restored Italian car for $ 120K. Keep in mind that those are asking prices, and that "cash on the hood" works wonders everywhere, especially in Europe. It should be noted that both European cars have a six-speed gearbox. This is not a plus; the six-speed was the Achilles heel of the two-liter cars. Abarth Simcas are very rare (I prefer to call them obscure), and very difficult to sell at any reasonable price. Is the 1300 51 worth $45,578 plus VAT (or US duty plus shipping)? Most certainly; but only fyou absolutely, positively had to have it on that day. It was the only one on the market, and the two bidders might have been the only ones who cared. All things considered, this was a fair enough price for a car that will always attract some attention, 1962-1965 300+ even if it is just being trailered home from the Cento Ore de Modena with a broken gearbox.—Raymond D.

Lamborghini/Maserati/Etceterini Quarterly Price Guide The Quarterly Price Guide reflects a retail buying and selling range for cars in very good to near excellent condition-significantly above a "daily driver" and one step below regional concours; a strong #2 on the accepted 1-5 scale, 1 being the best. These values are set by sales activity, primarily in the United States, as well as conversations with owners, dealers and collectors. As condition and history are the ultimate determinants of value, each car must be evaluated according to its own merits. Prices below assume cars with "no stories attached." An automobile priced above our guide is not necessarily overpriced, nor is one priced below a bargain. * Indicates approximate production numbers.

The moriti,i, At • Aston Martin • Austin-Healey • Bentley • Rolls-Royce • Jaguar • Lotus • MG • Triumph r L 7 Chassis number: DBVC/3684/R Engine number: 400/3522 The stylish Volante convertible offered four-seat accommodation and was generously appointed with leather upholstery, deep-pile carpets, an aircraft-like instrument cluster and electrically operated soft top. After 37 Volante convertibles had been completed on the short-wheelbase chassis (from the DB5), the model pictured here adopted the longer chassis from the DB6 coupe in October 1966. A total of 1,575 DB6s were made between 1965 and 1970, with only 140 DB6 Volantes of this type being built. This manual-transmission DB6 Volante is finished in its original Celeste (light-blue) paint with blue Connolly leather interior and has the rare luxury of a rear parcel shelf beneath the tonneau cover. Owned for seventeen years by a well-known Aston Martin enthusiast, this car came into its present ownership in 1995 and benefits from ongoing restoration since then. The engine has had a recent rebuild and the seller claims that the car is in "very good" condition throughout. Presentation reflects life-long careful ownership and the car comes with service and maintenance history from 1995 to date. This car was sold at the Brooks UK Auction at Newport Pagnell on May 13, 2000 for $109,288. With the DB6, Aston Martin was nearing the end of the golden era that began in 1959 with victory at Le Mans and the World Sports Car Championship. When the race-winning Marek-designed Years produced  Tune-up/major service  Distributor cap  Chassis #  Engine #  Club  Web site  Alternatives  aluminum dohc engine was installed in the Touring of Milan-designed DB4 body in 1959, Aston had an immediate winner The DB6 is visually and mechanically similar to the DB4 and DB5. Aston had created the DB6 coupe by stretching the DB5 wheelbase by 3.75 inches, which allowed them to raise the roof line to increase rear-seat August, 2000  Though recognizably related to its Touring-styled DB4 ancestor, the wheelbase was now longer than before, resulting in an extensive re-style with more raked windscreen, raised roofline and reshaped rear quarter windows. Opening front quarter lights made a reappearance, but the major change was at the rear where a Kamm-style tail with spoiler improved the aerodynamics, greatly enhancing stability at high speeds. "The tail lip halves the aerodynamic lift around maximum speed and brings in its train greater headroom and more luggage space," revealed Motor magazine, concluding that the DB6 was one of the finest sports cars it had tested. The Tadek Marek-designed six-cylinder engine had been enlarged to 3,995cc for the preceding DB5, and remained unchanged. Power output on triple SU carburetors was 282 bhp, rising to 325 bhp in Vantage specification. A Borg-Warner automatic transmission was offered alongside the standard ZF five-speed gearbox, and for the first time there was optional power-assisted steering. Itir aunched in 1965, the DB6 replaced the DB5 and for the first time the title "Volante" was introduced to denote the convertible model of the Aston Martin motor cars, a tradition continuing to this day. 1968 Aston Martin DB6 Volante t f Magnif; rii1.

The first designs showed afi-ightening tendency to lift their tails at high speeds, so the squared-off Kamm tail, with a spoiler adapted from racing, was substituted for the small tail fins of the DB4 and DB5. The method of introduction of the DB6 Volante convertible was a bit curious. When the new DB6 coupe was introduced at Earls Court in October 1965, Aston also introduced a convertible called the "DB6 Volante." The Volante shared major styling cues of split bumpers and spoiler rear end with the DB6 coupe, but it was, in fact, built on the shorter DB5 chassis. Nevertheless, after only thirty-seven of the DB5/ DB6 hybrids had been built, they were dropped in favor of a convertible built on the DB6 chassis, though the Volante term was retained. As with the DB5, DB6s could be ordered with the standard engine with three SU HD8 carburetors, or the "Vantage" engine which used triple Weber 45DC0E9 carburetors. While road tests of the day suggested that the Vantage engine was well-suited for high-speed highway driving, they noted that SU-equipped Astons, such as this one sold by Brooks, would be much more practical in urban traffic. Though the DB6 was improved from the DB5 in many ways, it wasn't different enough. In 1970, almost unnoticed, Aston produced the last of the Mark II DB6s. The failed attempt to design a V8 engine to replace the aging straight six, coupled with a Draconian government currency devaluation, pushed Aston to the brink offinancial failure and David Brown gave up control of the company he had rescued in 1945. Under new managers, the elegant styling of the DB4 through 6 would be replaced by wider, heavier models most notable for their high prices. The company would not produce another convertible for eight years. As a good driving car in nice condition, the 1966-1969 $15,495 (coupe) $90,000-125,000 $600 $45 price ofthis car was in line with its value. Because of their rarity and spare good looks, DB4-6 convertibles are highly prized and only one of the short-chassis DB6 Volantes would have been worth more.—Gary Anderson, Editor and Publisher, British Car Magazine.

CA' BY GARY ANDLioul iir There's a Mouse in My Cat his new monthly column is written by Gary Anderson, publisher and editor of British Car Magazine and a Jaguar fan from the time he owned his first Jaguar, a red XK 120 fixed-head Dinky Toy, at the age of four. He is currently the proud owner of a 1964 Jaguar Mk 2 and claims the distinction of being the only journalist who has ever test-driven a C-type, D-type, and XK-SS back-to-back. He has also driven and enjoyed every model of Jaguar made from the XK 120 to the XKR. Dear Cat Trax: I 've got about $35,000 and want a vintage Jaguar. Jam choosing between an XK 120, 140, 150 or Series I or III E-type roadster I plan on going on a couple of vintage events a year and club picnics, etc. Which would you recommend and why?—Bill Onalaska, Syracuse, NY Dear Bill: If you're asking which model would give the best value within that budget, I'd recommend the Series III E-type. For that price, you should be able to find a nice driver that will be safe and reliable for club touring and stylish enough to show off to the neighbors. However, you'll have to be a pretty lucky shopper to find an equally good Series I Etype for that price. In any case, don't give the buyer the whole $35,000; keep back about $3,000 to fix the things the seller didn't tell you about or didn't know about himself. It's going to be tough to find even a decent club driver within your budget in the XK 120150 series. If you can stretch your budget just a little, then try on an XK 140 or 150 for size. I wouldn't recommend the XK 120 for your purposes because of its drum brakes and uncomfortable cockpit. If you do like the fit (the small cockpits and large, close steering wheels of these classic roadsters aren't to everyone's taste) there are some roadsters out there that weren't given the whole concours treatment and don't have matching numbers—or even the correct series engine, for that matter—but should give you a lot of enjoyment and a great feeling of driving style. Dear Cat Trax: There's a Series II Jag roadster for sale locally, with a hobbyist restoration, for $25,000. It seems straight enough, although the nose doesn't fit very well and the rockers seem kind of lumpy. The owner claims the car has never been hit and never been rusty. What's your opinion?—James Hunt, Reno, NV Dear James: To quote the immortal Del Shannon, "Run, run, run away" from this car. Even if the owner is telling the truth that he hasn't hit another car head-on, that wonderful big one-piece bonnet is a complicated piece of metal hung onto a sub-frame (called a "picture frame") by two small hinges, which in turn is hung onto the front frame extensions. To get a bonnet to fit well, it can't be bent at all, and all of the hinges, brackets, and frames must be in good order and precise alignment. If they're not, you could spend half the purchase price just getting that part of the car fixed. And if you're seeing hints that there is badly applied body filler, or worse, rust bubbles, under the rockers, you're looking at rust in the worst place, which could cost an equal amount of fix. Since this isn't a family heirloom, look for a better car. Even if it costs ten grand more, you'll still be saving money in the end.

It really awful—I've started buying thosefragrant trees you hang on your rear-view mirrors by the cartonload. Your suggestion?—Henry Westwind, Tampa, FL Dear Henry: Sounds like you've been getting your maintenance advice from Click and Clack. We talked to Mike Leicester at XKs Unlimited in San Luis Obispo, California. Mike says the most likely answer is that a rodent has crawled up into the damper bypass opening on the underside of the heater box and expired there. This opening is controlled with the fresh air lever on the dash board and is a tempting place for a rodent condo. Mike says they've found all sorts of wildlife up in the heater box on cars they've restored. It's not a big job to take off the heater box—just drain the water, disconnect the cables and hoses, and loosen a few bolts—and can be done in an hour or so. While you've got the heater box off, it might be a good idea to get the heater core checked out and refinish the box, before putting it back in. There is also an outside possibility something might have crawled up into the duct system through the heater vents under the dash, or if the demister hoses have come loose, something could have gotten in there, but the most likely entry point would be that heater box damper.

The car offered here was sold to Bob Hagestad of Denver who used it to take part in IMSA and Trans-Am races including: Road Atlanta Trans-Am, April 15, 1973, R. Hagestad/P. Tracey, 8th; Lime Rock Trans-Am, May 5, 1973, R. Hagestad/Bobby Allison, DNF; Watkins Glen Trans-Am, R, Hagestad, 7th. I The car was crashed in July 1973 during practice at Trois Rivieres. Although not extensive, damage repair was time consuming, so Hagestad bought another RSR from Peter Gregg. After repairs to 0782 were completed, Hagestad sold the car to Michael Callas of Houston. Callas later sold the car to George Valerio who drove the RSR home from Texas to California without problem. After this, 0782 was sold to Dan McLoughlin who kept the RSR awhile before selling it to the Matsuda collection in Japan where the car spent many years on display. Recently released from the collection, 911 360 0782 is one of the very few RSR 2.8 Carreras to have escaped the modifications made to keep these race cars competitive. Fast, light and nimble even by today's standards, the 1973 RSR Carrera ranks as one of Porsche's great competition cars. This immaculate race car sold for $171,600 at the RM Auction, Amelia Island, Florida, on March 11, 2000. A  look at this price helps explain the striking difference in value between race and street cars. Although appearing similar to a standard 1973 Carrera RS, don't be deceived. The RSR is a full race car, never meant to be driven on the street. Its twin-plug engine, while just slightly bigger in displacement than the stock RS, produces nearly 50% more horsepower. It does this by throwing longevity out the window. This engine was not intended to last more than a few races between rebuilds.

We can  Alternatives  car, original paint is highly prized; for a race car, rarely expected. The original engine in a street car is required to obtain a top price; since race cars are often updated, even within a single season, it does not destroy the value if a race car has a non-original engine as long as it was correct for the car as last raced. Celebrity heritage helps a street car a bit; for a race car, it helps an enormous amount. Overall paint and interior detail matter plenty in a street car; for a race car, not nearly as much. In this RSR, we have the unusual combination of a concours restora- tion of an original race car that previously suffered both an engine explosion and collision damage. While it was raced in its day, it never brought home any real glory for its owners. So what to do with this car? As bought, it is over-restored for regular track work, but fine for  1973 55 $18,000 $175,000-300,000 $600 $250 On horizontal bulkhead under front lid, just aft of gas tank On vertical fan housing support, passenger side of engine Porsche Club of America, 5530 Edgemont Dr., Alexandria, VA 22310 www.pca.org Race-prepped Mercury Capri; BMW 3.0 CS "Batmobile"; Camaro, Firebird, Corvette Trans-Am race cars also see the original colors were Grand Prix White  with a black interior and Royal Blue graphics, and the factory options were a limited-slip differential and a large fuel cell. As a race car, its value is calculated in an almost entirely different manner than a street car. For a street car, accident damage hurts the value; for a race car some damage is a virtual certainty. For a street August, 2000  the occasional historic race. The 2.8 RSRs were near the end of the non-Turbo 911 race cars, so they are quite a bit easier to drive than the Turbo monsters that followed. But with 300 or so horsepower, don't think for a moment this car is tame. You can get an idea of the powerband and gearing by realizing that even with about 100 extra horsepower, the RSR is slower 0 to 60 than a touring RS (5.6 versus 5.5 seconds) but faster by 3 seconds in the 0 to 100 dash (12.0 versus 15.0). Those giant 9- and 11-inch wide tires are not there for looks, but rather as a requirement to translate all that horsepower into forward motion. The price paid was appropriately at the low range of the 2.8 RSR market, as cars that have been off the road for a long period of time often require mechanical work due to their inactivity. Once made track-ready, the value of this 2.8 RSR should move with those of the top-level group of Porsche race cars, which are today enjoying strong increases in value.—Jim Schrager (Photo and description courtesy of auction company)• 85 Market Review Buyer's Guide 1913 Porsche Carrera RSR 2.8

D A 914 With Six Appeal ear Mr. Schrager: Why all the fuss about 914/6s? I know they were produced in limited quantities, which should lead to increasing values over the years. Are they great cars to drive? I assume they have a special engine that really makes the car fly. Is it a car I should consider as a first Porsche?—P. A., San Diego, CA, via e-mail I do not recommend the 914/6 as a first Porsche. While Porsche tried to legitimize the 914 by inserting a genuine 911 engine, most buyers wanted the real thing (a 911) and balked at the high price of the 914/6 (less than $1,000 cheaper than the 911T, which had a bigger engine). In the end, the low volume created a car that needed further development in both the engine and suspension areas but never got it. For the last few decades, the 914/6 has been touted as the next great collectible Porsche. Since it hasn't happened yet, it's safe to say it probably won't. 914/6s reached into the teens fifteen years ago and haven't moved much since then. The reasons for this lack of appreciation have less to do with the humble beginnings of the 914/6 than the realities of the way they drive. The 914/6 has the lowest-horsepower 011 engine ever produced, the 1969 2.0 liter carbureted 911T with 110 hp (measured under the German DIN horsepower rating system). Even the original 1965 production engine managed 130 hp, and of course the later E and S models up to 190. Part of the problem was that the 1969 911T engine had a number 914/6: Limited production but limited appeal as well. tor to any number of 2.2, 2.4, 2.7 or even 3.0 911 motors. As you cruise the classifieds, you'll see plenty of these for sale. In fact, a small cottage industry has developed producing the requisite parts to fit a 911 motor in a The Used 911 Story The buyer's guide that future Porsche 911 owners should never be without. All air-cooled models are discussed with pros/cons mentioned regarding each model. Author Peter Zimmermann taps into 30+ years of experience to bring you this little book, now in its 6th edition. Sports Car Market's Jim Schrager wrote: "This is the most useful, accurate and important single book published on buying a used 911. It is absolutely a must if you really want to know about these cars." Please mail $29.95 (check or money order made to Peter Zimmermann) to PO.

The original 914-4 posted widely varying 0 to 60 times: 11.3; 12.7; 13.0; 13.9; for an average of approximately 12.7 seconds. The 914/6 was appreciably faster with a 9.3 average. However, the 914-4 2.0 of 1973 did the 0 to 60 dash in about 9.7 seconds, almost the same as the 914/6. Although a bit lighter than the similar year 911, the 914/6 simply doesn't have the sparkling acceleration most expect. To go faster, you can easily switch the mo- 914-4. But once you lose the originality of the car, you have little chance for investment value. You can also rebuild the stock 914/6 engine into something more powerful, but count on $6-7,000 for a thorough job. Another issue with any 914 is interior room. Most people make frequent use of the area behind the seats in the 911. In the 914, you have a spacious front cabin, but only the twin trunks for other luggage. And you'll have to leave the kids at home. The mid-engined 914 is a car well known for its superb handling in racing situations. fl But on the street, even reports in the rarely critical Porsche Club publication Panorama complained that the 914 ride was harsh and jarring in comparison to the 911. The small production volume, 3,351 cars, means there shouldn't be many 914/6 cars around. Yet there are always a handful for sale. Value in the Porsche world is more than just rarity. Unlike the 356 Carrera, 911 RS and 930 Turbo, the 914/6 never was anyone's idea of an ultimate car. For today's 914 buyers, the 914-4 2.0 gives about the same performance at about half the cost. In addition, the 914-4 is easier to maintain and easier to sell when you are ready to move up. While $15,000 buys a nice original 914/6, half that buys an excellent 914-4 2.0. On the other hand, if you have your heart set on the throaty wail of the legendary six-cylinder boxer, $15,000 will buy a very nice early 911. In addition to increased interior room, a more refined suspension, and better acceleration, the 911 should be a better investment as well.• INVESTMENTS Desirable European Classic Sports Cars P.O.A. $85,000 $9,500 $26,800 $19,500 $18,500 $18,800 $19,500 $9,500 Since 1989 • Buy/Sell/Restore 3303 E 42nd Ave, Denver, CO. 80216 USA Office/Fax 303.388.9788 • See photos on our website: www.classicinvest.com Sports Car Market

History: Production for 1969 first-generation Camaros would be the largest ever, from September 26, 1968 to February 26, 1970: a total of 243,085 units were produced. Chevrolet's Camaro was selected as the pace car for the Indy 500 and happily, Chevrolet produced 3,675 units to duplicate the original. This gave most dealers at least one car which usually was proudly displayed. Although a fair number of the Pace Car Replicas have survived, there is always a demand for them, and cars in this superb condition generally have no problem finding buyers.

From Grand Classics to Twin Stripes of Smoking Rubber 1957 Chevrolet Corvette Fl Roadster Chassis number: E57S105742 A merica was sadly without a true sports car until Chevrolet introduced the Corvette at the 1953 Motorama show and started production that year. The early Corvettes were lower and sportier than any other domestic car on the market but they lacked the innovative technology necessary to break open the market. Starting in 1955, Corvettes carried a V8 engine which improved their performance but their styling badly needed updating. In order for Chevy to combat the T-Bird and beat Ford in the sales wars, they needed to transform the Corvette into a serious sports car. In 1956 designer Harley Earl made a full-scale clay model of the new Corvette that was immediately approved by GM management. The distinctive coves were taken from a 1955 Motorama exercise called LaSalle II and became the trademark of the 'Vette through the '50s. Many greatly needed improvements were made such as a better fitting and optionally motorized convertible top. Chevy used real glass side windows and even offered a power window option. Believing that great looks are not everything, Chevrolet made vast improvements under the hood as well. For 1957, the engine was the hottest yet. It was bored out to 283 cubic inches with several horsepower options. The base engine, sporting a single-four barrel carburetor, had 220 horsepower. A two-four-barrel engine was available producing either 245 or 270 horsepower and finally the fuel-injected version made 250 or 283 horsepower. The 283-horsepower version introduced in May of 1957 made the 283 Corvette the first domestic production car with one horsepower per cubic inch displacement. The fuel-injected cars could also be ordered with a new four-speed transmission, like the car offered here, giving the last 1957 models an unprecedented level of straight-line performance. Additionally, Corvettes won the SCCA B Modified and B Production championships for 1957. Number produced  Original list price  Years produced  SCM Price Guide  This example appears to be very original in all respects. It is unrestored and almost all of the paintwork looks to be original. It has all correct numbers for a fuel-injection model and has the four-speed transmission. The engine bay is dry and clean and a new radiator has been fitted recently. The interior has an attractive period feel to it with the original Wonderbar radio and power windows fitted. The driver's seat squab is torn, but this should be a straightforward repair or Tune up/major service  Distributor cap  Chassis #  Engine #  Club  too nice to restore this Corvette as it would be a fine contender in any "survivor" field of entries. The car described here sold for a high bid of $58,750, including 17.5% buyer's premium, at the Christie 's Auction held April 27, 2000 in Tarrytown, New York (240 with fuel injection) $3,909 Right side of engine deck ahead of cylinder Web site  National Corvette Owners Association, 900 S. Washington St., 0-13, Falls Church, VA 22046 www.ncoa-vettes.com Alternatives  Kurtis 500M, Ford Thunderbird (2 x 4 bbl or supercharged) replacement. Apart from a few scratches in places and one or two incorrect screws, the car has an original feel and flavor. The recorded mileage shows 25,795. It comes with the original spare wheel, tools and trunk mat. The hard top fitted is a later accessory to this car. Overall it seems 92  Driver's door hinge The Corvette package was finally starting to look like a true enthusiast's car by the end of 1957. Asidefrom the 283-horsepower fuelinjected engine, it was possible to order your 'Vette with option package RP0684. This included stiffer springs all around, larger diameter front sway bar, stiffer shocks, quicker steering ratio and ventilated brakes fitted with the now famous "elephant ear" ducts. This probably had a big contribution to the 'Vette 's on-track success but not many buyers chose the high-performance options, possibly due to cost. Even in 1957, over 20% of the 'Vettes were still sold with the twospeed "Powerglide" transmission. (This is a little over twice the number of cars fitted with the superb and legendary T-10 four-speed gearbox.) The four-speed was made available in the late spring of '57 and began with (approximate) chassis number E57S103500. This late introduction and the continued popularity of automatics makes the four-speed the rarest transmission originallyfitted to a '57. This, combined with the fuel-injected engine, makes this a desirable car But more important than options (especially to the Corvette crowd) is originality. Without the original bill ofsale (what they sometimes call a "paperwork car"), it is difficult to assess whether all of the options came on a particular car, though it is possible to identify each piece as appropriate to a given year This car 's unrestored patina could reassure a buyer that he was getting what he was paying for With the increasing demand for "survivors" in Corvette circles, this car could have sold for 1953 to date (1957) 6,339 $38-55,000 $150-200 $18 as much as $10,000 more if offered to the right crowd. If this 25,000mile, red, fuel-injected Corvette is what it appears to be, it was very well bought.—Michael Duffey (Photo and data courtesy of auction company.)• Sports Car Market

This "Rustang" shows that as the value of top-flight cars increases, even scary builders like this are going up in value. If bought by a backyard do-it-yourselfer with time on his hands, this was a good deal. If it's going straight to a topflight restoration shop, a disaster #61-1968 CHEVROLET CORVAIR MONZA 2-door Hardtop. S/N 105378W113956. 6-cyl. Light yellow/black vinyl. LHD. Odo: 19,697 miles. Auto.

hy do some items on the Internet sell while others do not? In the case ofan antique Studebaker recently offered there was no question at all. Offered with a $3,500 reserve there was no year listed, no description, no photo, no bids and no sale. . .no wonder. We did miss our chance to own a couple of Indy cars that are too new for vintage racing and too old to be competitive. A 1993 Lola that was driven by Danny Sullivan for Gilles Racing did not receive the required opening bid of $100,000 even though it was in original Molson livery. A 1998 Infinity IRL car piloted by Roberto Guerreo did receive eight bids but $11,911 was not enough to have it parked in a new garage. A steering wheel used by Mika Hakkinen in his first Fl season with Lotus did not receive the required opening bid of $1,590 even though it was signed by Mika and his former teammate Mike Bartels. A new auction site, BigWigAuc- tions.com, has been offering a number of interesting vehicles but the required opening bids are every bit of full retail. For example, a very nice 1953 NashHealy roadster required $49,500 and a Jaguar 120SE $69,000. As a result the only items listed as sold were two watches and a string of pearls, the fourwheeled gems staying with their owners. Here are interesting items that have sold recently. eBay #356859170 - 1936 AARC ROAD RACE PROGRAM. First bid: $9.95. Number of bidders: 11. SOLD AT $137.50. Date sold: 6/17/2000. The Automobile Racing Club of America, founded November 1, 1933, was responsible for nurturing road racing in America throughout the depression years. World War II halted the club's activities however, the SCCA picked up the reins in 1948. The "Round The Alexandria Bay "Round The Ilinew" Road Race Alexandria Bay, N. Y. tl:CUST I. 1936 House" race, first held in 1936 on the streets of Alexandria, New York, became their premier event. Complete with a twenty-five cent admission ticket, this program was a piece of racing history at a bargain price. eBay #347734116 - '60s PORSCHE PORCELAIN SIGN. First bid: $100. Number of bidders: 11. SOLD AT $400. Date sold: 6/8/2000. Stated to be one of three signs that were sup- duced in 1976 with a V6 engine rated at 180 bhp. Production continued into 1979 and standard equipment included air, power windows and Blaupunkt tape deck. This example was stated to have fair paint, new tires, and a rebuilt brake system. Purchased at the lower end of the price range, it was a good buy if the new owner can live with the paint and not so good if he decided to opt for a $7,000 respray. eBay #348240797 - THE ACTION TWINS HOOD ORNAMENT. First bid: $9.95. Number of bidders: 26. SOLD AT $1,625. Date sold: 6/8/2000. Hood ornaments produced by the dollars for a three-foot porcelain Porsche sign seems more than reasonable and would sure look better on the garage wall than a bunch of garden tools. eBayMotors #335436444 - 1979 MASERATI MERAK/SS.

M Leckey (949) 6618333. (CA) (Aug) French and English were far superior in quality and detail to those offered in the United States. A few American offerings were, however, so unique that they deserve to be included in any serious collection. The Action Twins certainly falls into this category. The motion is caused by the wind turning the fan blade which results in the two figures bending up and down as if they were causing the fan to turn. They are rarely offered for public sale so it's difficult to say how much is too much. If you "need" one, and can't find one to steal AT $27. Date sold: 6/6/2000. Glamorizing the Nash-Kelvinator name was not a simple task but the powers that be at Nash realized that racing sold cars and could change their image. In collaboration with Donald Healey, a twoseater was designed to accept a soupedup Ambassador engine. Raced at Le Mans and the Mille Miglia with marginal success, the four-year production run ended in 1954. The brochure covered both the convertible and the Le Mans hardtop. However, it received minimal bidding activity considering the unique history of the car. Some largely unknown and disregarded cars, and their associated memorabilia, are destined to stay that way forever. eBay #345385212 - FRAMED FERRARI POSTER. First bid: $9.99. Number of bidders: 27. SOLD AT $610. Date sold: 6/5/2000. This large (42" x 30") poster was stated to be an original piece that Ferrari supplied to their authorized dealers. A colorful and impressive poster that was framed and ready to display, it sold for errari $1,000 less than an identical one offered a month earlier.
