A Golden Age of Sports Cars A s we write this, we have just returned from the Detroit International Auto Show, and are preparing to make a quick turnaround and head to the four-auction carnival in Arizona. If one had to choose between the two places, certainly the baking heat of January in the Southwest would win over the blustery cold of the Midwest. However, the allure of a major auto show has nothing to do with its location, but everything to do with vision. For the first time in years, the array of production and concept cars displayed by the manufacturers in Detroit demonstrated a commitment to imagination and style. For too long, enthusiasts have had to watch as the vehicles dominating the displays and the showrooms have been either Honda Accord/ Ford Taurus "my vanilla is whiter than yours" variants, or Chevrolet Suburban/Ford Excursion offerings in the "mine is bigger than yours" vein. Hardly the stuff of gearheads' dreams. But there's been a shift. The new Mercedes Vision SLA is a striking, rule-breaking (when was the last time you saw exposed shock towers on a car?) compact sports car. Even if full of visual references to the SLR-Roadster show car, it shows that a car can be small of stature but large of impact. The Audi TT cabriolet on display at the show demonstrated that nearly every practical shortcoming a car may have can be overcome, if not overwhelmed, by superior styling. We've recently been driving a TT Coupe Quattro and came to the following conclusion: while the TT may have ergonomic problem areas and be hard to see out of, these difficulties are a direct result of the eye-catching styling, which causes us to not only overlook but embrace the shortcomings. Whereas we would bitterly condemn a Camry if it had such a small greenhouse, and complain to no end if our right leg rubbed constantly against its center console brace, we accept these difficulties with the TT as part of the compromise involved in bringing a truly dramatic shape to market. This is in the same vein that a Speedster enthusiast forgives the water dripping on his leg in exchange for the visual excitement of the cut-down windshield, or the Healey lover dismisses a superheated, shoe-melting floorboard and focuses instead on the glorious exhaust note. James Bond finally has a car worthy of his exploits in the new BMW Z8. In marked contrast to the cartoonish shape of the Z roadster and coupe, the Z8 has a mature, sexually alluring and definitive presence. It is immensely satisfying to see BMW enter, for the first time since the 507, the high-performance roadster arena. While a company with great technological prowess, BMW for too long has attempted to shape its high-end market image with a succession of complex, competent yet ultimately boring 7and 8-series saloons. The Honda S2000 is a nearly unbelievable car, from its 6  no-pretenses shape to its high-output engine. The push-starter button on the dash is a cute touch; too bad they couldn't have left it black and subtle, rather than splashy red and prominently labeled like a fixture from an early Batman TV show. Nonetheless, given that the two-seat sports car genre was essentially given up for dead less than a decade ago, it's extremely satisfying from an enthusiast's perspective to watch the manufacturers discover that, in fact, drivers like exhilarating cars that have tops that go down. The Chrysler PT Cruiser, in a completely different fashion, makes another enthusiast's statement. While the jury is still out as to whether the merger of Daimler-Benz and Chrysler will form a truly transcendent car company, the best hopes for the survival of the feisty spirit of the '90s Chrysler is in the continued creation of niche-defining affordable cars like the Cruiser. Looking at the Cruiser close up, it appears that an Alfa Giulietta or Porsche 911 engine could be easily strapped in its rear cargo area, with room next to it for a decent rollaway tool chest. That might make the Cruiser the perfect support car for a legion of SCCA racers—with plenty of room on the side of the Cruiser for all of those decals that racers need to have. Chrysler announced that its PT Cruiser will have a base price of just $16,000, including destination charges. I would venture to guess that when auto historians look back on the year 2000, it will stand as the beginning of a golden age of automobiles, much the way that 1964 and the introduction of the Mustang started an earlier revolution. We are in the midst of tremendous global affluence, prodigious leaps in technology and a market that is looking for cars to represent far more than convenient, anonymous appliances. This has led to brilliant designs with superb engineering and show-stopping visual appeal. It doesn't get much better than this. Mercedes Vision SLA show car We'll take one, please. Paddy and His Mini With BMW announcing the rebirth of the fabled Mini, we thought it appropriate to show the diminutive English car at a moment of glory. This painting by Nicholas Watts depicts a 1964 Mini Cooper S, driven by Paddy Hopkirk and with Henry Lidden navigating, slashing through the snow and ice during the 1964 Monte Carlo rally. After crossing the Alps Maritimes in France, the rally ended in Monaco. Hopkirk won both the Monte Carlo rally and the world championship of rallying that year. A limited number of prints from the original edition of 500 are available. Signed by driver Hopkirk and engine builder John Cooper, they measure 33 x 25 inches and are priced at $295.

Auction 101 Part 3 of an Insider's Look at an Auction 1 Selling Your Cars At Auction by "Fairly Honest" Bob LeFlufr ,,,, his month, we'll take a quick look at a few commonsense things you can do that will help you sell your car at an auction and avoid the despair of towing it back home unsold. RULE 1. CLEAN IT UP. Your pride and joy, no matter if it is a Ferrari SWB or a Humber Super Snipe, will sell for more money if it is clean, polished and running well. The buyer wants to feel as though the car he is purchasing has been loved. A car that is dirty, has a dead battery or has old gasoline in the tank giving off that wonderful varnish smell, does not inspire others to write large checks. Spend a few bucks, install a new battery, detail the car inside and out, and put ten gallons of the good stuff in the tank. Don't spend significant money improving your car, just make it look and run as well as it can. RULE 2. INFORMATION SELLS CARS. Give the Auction Company as much information about the car as you can. The most important stuff should be printed clearly on a data card and posted in the windshield. Spend time around the car on the auction field and talk to the folks who are interested. Remove the uncertainties about the car by describing its strengths and weaknesses in a straightforward manner. If you tell me it pops out of fourth gear now and then, I am more likely to believe you when you also say that it runs strong and doesn't burn much oil. RULE 3. SET A REASONABLE RESERVE. Many consignors put unrealistically high reserves on their cars, in an effort to control the selling process. This is a mistake. The auctioneer, seeing a $50,000 reserve on a $30,000 car, will do one of two things: Either he will give up, and move as quickly as he can to the next, more salable car, or he will run the bidding up past the "real money" hoping to hook someone at a higher figure. Sometimes that works, but most often you hear "Drive her off the block" as he's chanting at $45,000. You stand there trying to figure out why no one is encouraging you to accept this offer, and it's because there is no offer, just a chandelier with lips in the back of the room. Your reasonable reserve should be a figure that is less than full retail for your car, but more than a fire-sale price. RULE 4. SELL THE CAR. When the car is on the block, if you get a bid anywhere near the money you want for it, take the reserve off and sell it. It is normal for bidding to increase about 10% when the reserve is lifted in the average auction, so take advantage of the excitement it generates to lift your reserve early, rather than waiting until the last minute. Lifting your reserve when there is active bidding going may encourage other bidders to jump in. Remember, you brought the car to the auction to sell it. Settling for a little bit less than you originally wanted is probably a whole lot better than dragging the car home unsold. Besides, if the car sells, you'll have room in the garage to buy something else.• For people who care about their cars...

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 Should I Buy a Replica? Dear Mr. Kerb: For some crazy reason I want to buy an MG-TC. I have followed your work in SCM for many years now and I think that you are the man who can talk some sense into me or at least, get me through the purchase project with making the guys at Moss Motors rich.—J.S., via e-mail Dear Mr. S: In many ways, the TC is the ideal collector's sports car. It has wide brand name recognition (that means that you will have a good chance of selling it when you are tired of it), the parts availability is fantastic and though some jobs are better left to experts; you can repair the car yourself with simple (Whitworth) hand tools. There always seems to be a buyer for a TC even though modern cars have outpaced it to such a degree that the car is almost useless for anything beyond an occasional, short drive. I know that there are rabid enthusiasts with antique cars who drive over mountaintops and through deserts, I just don't think that any of us could picture ourselves doing it in a TC. So really, the easiest way to snatch you from the path of oncoming MG ownership is to ask you, "Do you plan to drive it?" and "How far?" If you want to really drive your TC, I recommend that you look at newer T-Series models like the TD and TF. Both have independent front suspension and rack and pinion steering, good things if you plan to steer and go straight at the appropriate times. But, before I send you off to buy a TF 1500, I also would like to know what it is that you find so appealing about the TC or T-Series cars in general. To many people, the TC is a type of car rather than a specific car. They have sweeping fenders, vestigial running boards, tall/ skinny wire wheels and a fold-down windscreen. To some buyers, these attributes could describe a Jaguar SS100, fourwheeled Morgan or Riley Imp to name a few other British sports cars with that "look." Some buyers are so nonspecific with their desire for "the look" that they end up buying an MG replica built on a VW chassis, a really silly idea. With a VW-based replica, all you've done is make a very uncomfortable car reliable. (Getting out of a real TC to beat-up the fuel pump with a rock is a good opportunity to stretch your legs.) In some small way, I can appreciate the: "pre-war car that we continued to build after the war" thing that the MG has and the 14  availability of parts is a real plus. However, it should be pointed out that in the last 10 to 15 years the parts availability for MGBs, Bugeyes and many other entry-level sports cars has increased to near T-Series levels. So, the choice is yours and remember, the more driving that you want to do, the less I recommend a TC. No matter which car you choose, stay away from the ones built on the VW-Beetle chassis. They're easy to spot because they all have hammer marks on the grille from some guy trying to pry-off the (fake) radiator cap. Dear Mr. Kerb: While at a Barrett-Jackson Auction I saw a 300SL "Gullwing" replica. It was painted silver with black interior and on the surface seemed quite authentic, right down to the door handles. It seems to me that even some car nuts would mistake this car for the real thing as even the engine looked correct. I know this isn't an investment vehicle and SCM doesn't think much of replicas but so many of them don't really look as perfect as this does. I believe that this car sold for $60,000. I wonder why I shouldn't buy a car like that and drive around with a low insurance premium and enjoy myself in a way I couldn't in a more expensive ($225,000) vehicle? —A.Z., Los Gatos, CA Dear Mr. Z: There are replicas that are fairly convincing even when viewed from a few feet away. The best that I have seen is the early Porsche Speedster replica by Intermeccanica. These cars were not only convincing but well built (a rare combination in a kit car). Quite a few early cars were fitted-out with Porsche gauges and other trim bits that to most observers make the car look even more like the genuine article. Still, I have seen several of these cars offered for sale in the $12,000 range and a few below the $10,000 figure, clearly less than they cost to buy and assemble. If I had to develop a ratio of assembly cost to resale value for a well done "rep," I'd guess it at somewhere in the 25-50% area (i.e., spend $40,000 to build one and get back $10-20,000 when you go to sell it). So, replicas are almost always "good buys" in terms of initial cost when they show up for resale. (By the way, SCM has no problem with replicas as affordable fantasy fulfillers. We just maintain that they are not good investments, and anyone who tells you they are has been smoking something stronger than Camels.) Since we've dispensed with the notion of a replica as a good investment, let's look at the other reasons you might want to own one. Replicas often address the inherent flaws of the original. This means a replica 300SL will actually have leg room, and an A/C system that keeps you cool when the doors are closed. Replicas, due to their modern technology, are also more reliable than the original, although the 300SL is not known to be a temperamental car. Since they are significantly less valuable than an original, replicas may get driven on the road more often. Most collectors don't drive their cars all that much and when they do, are mindful of the usage and mileage limits mandated by collector car insurance. The truth is that old cars are waxed as often as they are driven. The events like the California Mille provide an opportunity to exercise an old car but the total number of entrants worldwide compared to the likely number of collector cars extant should illustrate the fact that most old cars don't see much use—partly due to their value, partly due to their lack of reliability. !flower initial cost, guilt-free driveability and modern-day technology under a vintage skin is your aim, most of this discussion might point you in the direction of a replica. Just realize that you will spend half of your life explaining that you don't really have a 300SL to the unwashed, and the other half hanging your head in shame while owners of real 300SLs circle you at club meets and threaten to burn you and your fake at the stake. If you must have a replica, follow a few rules. Most hobbyists are bad mechanics and worse electricians. This means, if possible, buy a "factory built" replica. The builder knew (we hope) how to wire, plumb and align their product to a level of driveability that would keep them out of the courts and in good stead with their liability insurance carrier. And, do the research; find out what they cost initially to buy and assemble. If the company is still in business, find out if they print a detailed parts list. The last thing you want is to have a replica orphan where you can't even put your car on the road because some custom-made, critical part has failed. • Sports Car Market

You Write  We Read  All letters are subject to editing. Please address correspondence to SCM, 6833 SE Pine Ct., Portland, OR 97215. Fax 503/252-5854, e-mail: mail@sportscarmarket.com Dear SCM: I certainly enjoy SCM I find the articles timely and informative in a car-guy kind of way. I do, though, disagree with your description of XKD 501 (January 2000, page 70). No one can argue that its provenance is untouchable. It is your perception of its originality. It doesn't have its original body or engine or tires or paint, etc. How does this car merit such a lofty originality discussion? To the best of my knowledge there is only one D-type in existence that still has its original tires-paint-trim-tools-manual, etc. It is XKD 5471XK-SS 728 and it is sitting in my garage here in Indiana with 13,000 miles on it.—Gary Bartlett, via e-mail According to Terry Larson, keeper of the C- and D-type Registry, your XK-SS is undoubtedly the "most original, unmolested car of its type in the world." SCM also applauds your decision to refurbish your car only as much as necessary to make it roadworthy, and without disturbing its patina. Your participation in the Italian MM in the car last year was a terrific way to reintroduce today's enthusiast to your machine. As far as the originality of XKD 501, Larson believes that "a car does not achieve its final identity until it leaves the factory for the last time." It is true that XKD 501 was rolled at Snetterton in 1956, and damaged at the Niirburgring. Both times it was returned to the factory for repair. However, since it won at Le Mans in 1956, the car has been essentially untouched except for an engine swap with one of its sister team cars. Therefore, if we are discussing cars with a racing history, and their alterations since leaving the factory for the final time, XKD 501 stands as the most unaltered, most original car of this type.—ED. (Tom Young's review of the Sotheby's motorcycle sale [December 1999, page 38] brought this response. We have taken the liberty of interpolating Young's responses [in italics] to the letter below:) Dear SCM: I have had the good fortune of receiving your magazine for a year or two and enjoy it. While my deepest passions lie in two-wheeled vehicles, I do enjoy cars, too and own a few fun ones. I do, or have published a number of national magazines, includ- ing American Iron Magazine, Old Bike Journal, Indian Illustrated, Thunder Alley, Motorcycle Tour & Cruiser and various one-shots on Harley history. I was quite pleased to see the more active role in reporting the motorcycle scene but there are some errors that should be addressed. #262 - 1939 Indian Four (of course it is an inline four, that's why they were called Fours). $53,000 is not far from the market for a Bollenbach-restored 1+ condition Four. I disagree with Mr. Young's statement that the price is a 25% premium. I stand by my value statement. At least in the Northwest, superbly restored bikes can be found in the $35,000-40,000 range. While they may not have the value-added panache of a "Bollenbach" restoration, they can be equally as well done in nearly every respect.—T.Y. #246 - 1948 Indian Chief. Jim Crocker is from Alabama, not Texas as assumed by the "Tacky hand-tooling on saddle bags and seat trim could only have come from Texas" statement. I don't see any saddlebags in the photo. Also, $36,000 was outrageous for this bike. And I don't know where Mr. Young gets his work done, but I don't agree that "restoring one would cost more." No saddlebags, you're right. But we both missed the incorrect Mikuni carburetor and the 12-volt conversion. On the cost of restoration, it all depends on what you start with. If you show up with a pile of rusted bits and an Indian title, you'd best plan on emptying your bank account before you're done. I still believe that $36,000 was on the high side, but not outrageous.— TY #236 - 1953 Indian Chief. Based on the four-digit serial number there is no way to know this is a last-year 1953 model. My guess is it is a less-desirable 1952 sold in 1953. Also there is no shock absorber on the crank shaft. There is, however, a "Torque Evener" sprocket. As for this bike being "Absolutely perfect," come on, Indian never offered a seat like that in the 1950s, rather an unattractive bench seat. Also no chrome on the front fork legs. Despite the imperfections, this bike brought a resounding $53,000. Sometimes a mildly "personalized" bike will attract big bids from a "shiny bike" auction crowd. A similar example in the car market is the mildly customized MG-TD with the Triumph engine and Union Jack flag painted on the hood that Christie's seems to sell over and over again for big money. I used the phrase "shock absorber" rather than the functionally equivalent, but less informative "Torque Evener. "—T Y. #247 - 1977 Harley-Davidson Cafe Racer. In the condition shown and described, I'd say $8,000 is at the bottom of the value range, not merely "A rider. $8K seems high, but there was Harley fever in the house." Obviously Mr. Young was both immune and ignorant of the value of this stock XLCR, most of which were trashed long ago. Ten years ago, when the market was better than today, I sold two of these in nicer condition than this one for less than $7,000 each and was glad to get it. J. Wood & Co. sold a 1977 XLCR, #2 condition, for $6,600 last year—TV. I wonder what Young was smoking when he described the #238a - 1975 BMW R 90/S as "Original except modified with RAYJAY turbo charger. Fork brace, Krauser saddle bags, S& W shocks." How about those aftermarket Lester mag wheels? Or the much later BMW valve covers? Or the stainless steel brake lines? Or oversized oil sump? I stopped listing what was NOT stock on this bike due to space restrictions. I currently own three R 90/S's, (two '74s, one '75) two in stock, original condition, one restored.—T.Y. Buzz Kanter s 1947 Harley-Davidson. #261 - 1946 Indian Chief, sold for $26,000. Where can Mr. Young buy a perfect Chief for $20K? I'll take every one he can produce and feel like I had a great deal. At the J. Wood & Company Auction at Daytona Beach, March 8-11, 1999, a condition 2- 1948 Chief sold for $15,000. I recently bid to $15,000 on a #2 1946 Chief here in Portland, and lost it when it went for $17,000. However, as the Chief market continues to gather strength, I would agree that it will probably take at least $25,000 to find another like this.—T E 18  Also, why was there no bike coverage of the Louis Vuitton Classic? There were some outstanding machines there, including my 1947 Harley Knucklehead. We focused on the SCM-subscriber-owned cars that were there. A 1913 Pope owned by SCM-subscriber and Speedvision CEO Roger Werner was also on display.—ED. ■■■•■ Roger Werner's' 1913 Pope.

Dear SCM: Mr. Sheehan's column (December 1999, page 23) is erroneous and contains information which is either incorrect or simply untrue. The most important statement in his column which needs SCM's immediate attention is his paragraph on the grandfather clause as attached to the Show and Display (S&D) rule. The law states that cars which were brought in legally BEFORE (not AFTER) June 8, 1998 should apply. There are probably hundreds of owners whose vehicles will qualify and it is paramount that they know this and apply before February 14, 2000. The examples given by Mr. Sheehan for "...a model not already imported by the manufacturer." include the Ferrari 360 Modena. This is not correct. The Ferrari 360 Modena as manufactured for the rest of the world (ROW) can be imported under a separate final rule which allows full legalization. It is interesting to note that an XJ220 has been sold here in the states as "legal." I have been offered this car by two individuals in one day. Yet my investigation into this particular car shows questionable paperwork and according to the Feds there are no street-legal XJ220s. The EPA work performed on this car is nonexistent despite claims to the contrary by the sellers. Interesting, too, are the price jumps that are claimed in the column. My own daily contact with Europe, combined with recent trips there, shows me that prices have stabilized if not dropped slightly. Yes, the added costs can push the price up if the purchaser of the vehicle is left to fend for himself on issues of shipping, customs, EPA certification, etc. after the sale has been made. Already I have been quoted $25,000 US by one ICI for EPA work on the two Porsche 959s I am importing. This is ten times the amount I know it will take to do the work through another ICI. Let the buyer beware. Finally, as to thanking Mr. Gates for all of this I would suggest you send a thank-you card to someone else with roots on the East Coast as I believe he wrote the $20K check to the lobbyist in Washington. And a special thanks to Representative Billy Tauzin of Louisiana for putting S&D in the 1998 Transportation Bill. —Bryan Milazzo, via e-mail Mike Sheehan replies: You raise some valid points. On importing a 360, yes, they can come in, but not under the exemption law. They still have to have US headlights and other items fitted for D.O.T compliance. As for prices jumping, I was in Europe in late November and prices had gone up, not down, by late December. If Mr. Milazzo knows of 959s that are getting cheaper by the day, my advice is that he buy a garage-full of them. Further, 1 would view as highly suspect any shop that quoted me just $2,500 for putting catalysts and a modern computer in a 959, and having the car tested for EPA compliance as well.—M.S.• February, 2000  • • • • • • • • • CLASSIC SHOWCASE Offering A Fine Selection Of Motor Driven Vehicles With over 25 Years experience with sports cars and classics, we offer excellence in knowledgeable buying-sellingrestoring & locating specific vehicles for you.

Comments  WITH YOUR RENEWALS L Here are some thoughts and observations from fellow subscribers. The magazine is often mangled in the postage system equipment. I subscribe to many magazines and yours is the only one with this problem. (Forbes packages theirs in a plastic envelope and it seems to protect it.) This is not a complaint, just a suggestion. Thanks.—Frank McEneany, Lafayette, CA I love your covers; poly bag the magazine so they don't get damaged by the post office!—Roger W. Risley, West Chester, PA. We've started polybagging with the last issue. The Post Office seems to be incapable of delivering SCM without mangling up to 1/3 of the issues. We are hoping that the additional cost, about $1,000 per issue, will be offset by the reduction in frustration on the part of our readers. During the next couple of months, we will continue to experiment with different types and weights of paper to find the printing "sweet spot" where the curves of quality and price cross. Thanks for your patience.—ED. I love "Legal Files" by Alex Levanthal. I guess that shows they are not all troublesome types. He's got a great common sense perspective.—Dan Fenley, Costa Mesa, CA to SCM and I always learn something when I read it, ready for three more years (renewal).—Mark Mitchell, Prosser, WA Keep the format as it is. There are plenty of magazines out there for American cars. Keep your focus on the marques you've chosen. You can tell I like it, I have renewed for three years.—Mark Dubovick, Apollo Beach, FL Just keep it up—it's great.—Harold Gendelman, Bengham Farms, MI More color images.—Nicholas Decherney, New York, NY Keith and Cindy, I always look forward Stop trying to kill the values on the 356 & 911s (early 911s), please. You are too low on both. Love the mag. Keep it up. —Sam Grasso, Santa Paula, CA Don't change a thing.—Chuck Olenyk, Rockford, MI Need more guides of what to look for/ avoid, when shopping for a classic SC. Keep the focus on sports cars.—Roger Ganser, Madison, WI Keep it the same with your "colorful" auction reports.—Guy Mace, Springfield, MA You have come a long way, keep going.—Ralph Twombly, Kingston, NH You're doing a very good job.—Jon Bernheimer, Annadale, VA I really enjoy this magazine, just make it bigger.—Ron Turner, Rochester, MI 20  More photos of Keith's dancing legs. —John Smallwood, Santa Fe, NM You guys are great! Keep up the liveliness of your writing. Thanks for not making me pay postage to re-subscribe. Yours was the only bill this month that I didn't have to put a stamp on.—Jon Rand, New York, NY Morgans are great cars—need more of them!—Harold Cox, West Linn, OR Why no comment on the red-hot Volare market? Now that Plymouth is a dead marque, they're sure to be a solid-gold investment.—Thomas A. Rounds, Palm Springs, CA I noticed that some of the cars from the Christie's Pebble Beach Auction were missing; I was interested in them and your comments on them. Apparently due to space limits, you need to add the number of cars reported. Perhaps more advice on how to inspect autos for damage and poorly done bodywork.—Cory Youngberg, Newport Beach, CA More articles about English sports cars.—David Bonnett, Las Vegas, NV More European. The cars are there and the buyers are here.—Don Sevart, Los Angeles, CA Please, more auction results and commentary. Where can I find a Fiat Jolly like the one in the last issue? I'm in love. What a classic.—David Thorbus, Minneapolis, MN impossible, as so few seem to succeed. For many of us, the Internet becomes the next stop. We also urge you to patronize your local bookstores.—ED. I really enjoy the info, on affordable/ overlooked collector cars. Personally, I'm more interested in collector cars that can be driven as opposed to garage queens. (My daily driver is an '87 911.)—Dennis Dodd, San Carlos, CA More color, articles on how to get good restoration, costs, etc.—Steve Newby, Gaithersburg, MD Edit the ads. Require VIN or SN in ads. Require dealer identity or "pp" (private party) in ads.—H. Allen Evens, Los Angeles, CA. We currently offer space for a VIN at no charge, but few sellers seem to take advantage of the opportunity. Your suggestion about dealer vs private party is a good one, although fundamentally it really shouldn't make any difference who is selling a car—ED. I especially love auction reports, it gives real-world estimates and is always witty. Expand it.—Dr. Castiello, Chevy Chase, MD Your magazine is superb, I would personally enjoy some in-depth coverage of interesting restoration projects done by owners or professional shops.—Steve Doyle, Baltimore, MD Great magazine—I have purchased and read every issue since No.1 at Automobilia in San Francisco. However, now that they have closed (Oct. 1999) I no longer can hang out there and get SCM So at long last I am becoming a subscriber. I guess that's not too bad, although I and countless others will miss Automobilia.—Skid Hall, Pacifica, CA. All of us will miss Automobilia. The economics of running a successful automotive-related bookstore must be nearly Double the size of the issue. Seriously, you're doing great! Keep up the good work.—Tony Cantafio, Vancouver, WA Increase percentage of articles devoted to American cars of 1950-70 vintage. —L.E. Franceschina, Beaver Falls, PA What about adding auto art? And please keep this a Euro-oriented mag. Thank you.—Ken Salvi, Roseville, CA I just wanted to let you know how much I look forward to receiving Sports Car Market each month. I always read it from cover to cover and enjoy each page. I have just one small suggestion: A bit more coverage relating to vintage race cars would be nice. Best wishes.—Bill McCann, Fair Oaks, CA. Need more Porsche. The artwork on the cover is worth the price (renewal).—Al Mohr, Carmel Valley, CA Seems like you're showing a little more respect for MGBs (especially the rubbernosers), thanks.—Larry Marshall, MN You can't make it better so why don't you make it more frequent.—Richard Landeira, Boulder, CO Don't change a thing.—Richard Wauwatosa, WI Keep it the way it is.—James Foulkes, Holiday, FL Send it twice a month.—Van Svenson, Cohoes, NY Don't change anything—that is what makes you unique, the way you are.— Marc Perlman, New Fairfield, CT I didn't know big old Cadillacs were sports cars (Dec. '99 issue), some obscure British car could have been featured, other than that, it's okay with me.—Brian Carter, Oregon, WI. While a Kustom Cadillac might not be our personal favorite as a collector car, we respect the passion that others have for them.

Market Review at Buyers Guide La rivista del velocissimo e del bellissimo ANONIMA lOMBAROA MONICA AUTOMOBIll Tip° ta MILANO NM. 1953 Alfa Romeo 1900 CS Farina Chassis number: CO 1534 Engine: 1844cc, 4 cylinder W Initially powered by a 1844cc, 90 hp twin overhead camshaft 4-cylinder engine and offering fine handling, the 4-door sedan quickly became popular with sporting drivers and racers. In 1951, Alfa introduced the short-wheelbase 1900 C chassis, which served as the basis for many special bodies by the major Italian body builders. The most popular series came from Touring, and the most sporting from Zagato. In 1953, the Super series was introduced with a larger engine. ith its unitary construction—the first on an Alfa Romeo—the 1900 was Alfa's first massproduced car, introduced in 1950. It was assembled on a new production line at Alfa's original Portello works that was funded in part by the Marshall Plan. Chassis 1534 (the bodybuilder's number) is one of 11 of the Corto-based Pininfarina fastback coupes known to exist. It has undergone a full ground-up restoration, and has been hardly used since. Consequently, it appears in excellent condition and features nonstandard Zagato seats trimmed in black leather (the original seats are available with the car, but in poor condition), a Nardi wood-trimmed steering wheel and Borrani wire wheels. This car would make a perfect entry for the retrospective Mille Miglia, the Tour de France, Carrera Panamericana, or any of the many other historic events for which it is eligible. This Alfa sold at the Coys of Kensington London Auction for $37,338 on May 10, 1999. The 1900 Corto (literally, "short," but called Sprint) chassis is especially significant because it was a favorite of Italian bodybuilders in the era that defined the shape of modern automobiles. Designs on Alfa's 2.5-meter chassis ranged from the understated elegance of Touring to the grotesque excesses of Ghia. As a result, the 1900 buyer has quite a variety of body styles from which to choose, including the other-worldly Bertone BAT trio. Pininfarina was one of the more conservative of the Italian stylists, and his cars are always in excellent taste. However, of all the This fastback coupe bears typical Pininfarina hallmarks that can also be seen in similar bodies on other Italian chassis of the era. One of the more conservative of the bodybuilders, Giovanbattista (Pinin) Farina gave this car an understated elegance of line, while the large fastback window suggests speed and potency. Years produced  Number produced  Original list price  SCM Price Guide   Tune-up/major service  Chassis #  Engine #  Club  Web site  Alternatives  body styles draped over the 1900 chassis, I think this Pininfarina fastback is one of the less successful. Compared to the similarly conservative 3- and 5-window Touring coupes, it's heavy amidships and awkward from behind. In this case, the short wheelbase February, 2000  does not serve well the overall design of the car Even on his own terms, this is not one of Pinin's best: if you're after a fastback design that suggests power, his 1953 Ferrari 342 coupe, with its gaping egg-crate grille, oozes it. 1951-53 (Sprint); 1954-58 (Super Sprint) The price of this fully-restored car is further evidence of its mid-range character A fastback Zagato body on the same chassis shows an almost-identical front end, but its more-aggressive design will bring double the price of this car The three BATs, unarguably the most expensive and flamboyant of all 1900s, were once offered at $9 million for the trio. Reading between the lines of the auctioneer's description, this appears to be a car prepared for the auctions and unused except to drive across the runways. It is presentable, but clearly not the best of the breed. Further, this is not a high-performance 1900. With an 1884cc engine, single downdraft carburetor and 4-speed column shift, it offers less punch than other 1900s. The TI version of 1952 produced 115 hp, as did the updated Super version, introduced in 1954. The 1954 Super Sprint added dual downdraft carburetors and a 5-speed gearbox to the larger engine. 949 (Sprint); 854 (Super Sprint) 3,240,000 Lire; $5,184 (1952) $35-42,500 approx. $100 Engine bulkhead Intake side of block 1900 Register, Mariners, Courtland Ave  , Esher, Surrey, England KT10 9HZ www.alfaromeo.com Maserati 3500 GT, Lancia B20 GT It is impressive that you can get such a nicely restored 1900 for so little. These cars were durable to a degree that shames modem Alfas. Many 1900 sedans spent long, productive lives as taxi cabs and patrol cars for the police. Their instrumentation is a joy and roadholding is beyond reproach for an early '50s chassis. Maintenance costs are low: points, plugs, condenser and valves you can adjust with just a big screwdriver In spite of the car's negatives, if there are no surprises lurking under the hood, the lucky buyer is likely to find that this Pininfarina fastback is the most satisfying car he's ever owned Indeed, it will probably whet his appetite for a 1900 CSS or even a 1900 Zagato.—Pat Braden.• 21

Quarterly La rivista del veloeissimo e del bellissimo 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, must be evaluated according to its own merits. Prices below assume cars with "no stories attached."

FERRAR,„ ir Chassis number: 0141/T he example shown here is a very rare "Export" model intended for racing in the GT and Sports classes. Chassis number 0141/T is unique, being the only 212 to have been built with a "Tuboscocca" type chassis, an early attempt by Ferrari to give threedimensional rigidity to the ladder-type chassis. Wheelbase for the Inter model was given as 2600 mm but that of 0141/T was given as 2250 mm, the same as the sister 166MMs. Most Inters weighed around 2,100 lb. but 0141/T is appreciably lighter. Power for the Export's twelve-cylinder, triple-carburetor engine was given as 185 hp by the factory. Several 212 Export models with even chassis numbers did well in competition, which no doubt helped road car sales. Chassis 0141/T was the only competition berlinetta to have an odd numbered chassis and it was bodied by Carrozzeria Touring with one of their aluminum bodies with a one-piece windshield. According to respected Ferrari historian Marcel Massini, this car was delivered new to Scuderia Ferrari with test plate "PROVA MO 36." Luigi Chinetti then sold it to a Frenchman, Pierre Boncompagni, a wealthy "gentleman" amateur driver who raced under the pseudonym, "Pagnibon." He did not race 0141/T until 1952. On March 30th he raced twice, being placed second in the 2/3-liter class in the second race. Just one week later, Pagnibon raced at Nimes, winning his race outright. On April 20th he took part in a hillclimb in Val de Cuech and then raced in the Spring Cup at Montlhery, winning both events. This would appear to be the sum total of 0141/1"s competition career, although there are some blanks, particularly between April 1952 and July 1, 1953 when 0141/ T was imported into Switzerland. Over the next nine years, 0141/T changed ownership between several Swiss owners before being bought by noted dealer in exotic cars, Rob de la Rive Box. By this time 0141/T had gained a later type 250 GT engine with internal number 0298D. In the late '60s, 0141/T was in a dealership in the Zurich area before being sold to another Swiss collector, Hans Matti. Matti sold the car to Corrado Cupellini of Bergamo, Italy who, a few months later sold the car to noted Ferrari collector Giulio Dubbini of Padova. Dubbini raced 0141/T in historic events in Italy enthusiastically until 1990 whereupon his collection passed to his son, Federico. In 1996 it was entered in such events as the Mille Miglia Retro, the Shell Historic Challenge at Spa-Francorchamps in Bel- Years produced  Number produced  Original list price  SCM Price Guide  Tune-up/major service  Distributor cap  Chassis #  Engine #  Web sites  gium, at the Ntirburgring and at the Tulle le Ferrari in Pista Mugello.

Ferrari 195 S, Maserati A6GCS Fen-ariOwnersClub.org www.maranello.com Market Review Buyer's Guide 1951 Ferrari 212 Export Berlinetta bodywork, it is certain to be a star wherever it appears. The car described here was a no sale at a reported high bid of $500,000 at the Christie 's Auction held August 29, 1999 at Pebble Beach in California. Though today overshadowed by the 250MM and other, later three-liter GT Ferraris, wins for the 212 in the Tour of Sicily, Coppa Inter Europa, the Tourist trophy and the Carrera Panamericana set the stage for a long, successful line of GT cars for the gentleman and serious racer alike. It can also be said that in many of those European races, the competition in the over two-liter GT class was light, probably increasing the salability of a new Ferrari as a winner to the wellheeled gentleman racer of the day. Today, the market for 212s is uneven, hampered by both the performance of a stock engine and the not-so-attractive appearance of some of the closed bodies, notably those by Ghia and some by Vignale. This car, 0141/T stands alone with its alloy Berlinetta bodywork by Touring (either the last or one of the last cars so fitted), braced chassis and the added performance of a threeliter engine. There are very few 212 Exports of any flavor and it is necessary to examine each car on a case-by-case basis to establish value. With later 250MMs pushing the very high six figures and the desirability of closed cars for (often wet) "events," this 212 is in a unique position to outpace most other 212 comers in the marketplace. Christie's estimate was $650-850,000; a figure that likely takes into account the 250MM market and the unusual combina- tion of attractive alloy bodywork and competition specification with an odd chassis number The high bid of $500K is likely very near the value of this car. With its interesting and unique specifications, we would expect it to bring at least $650K when presented to the right buyer—Michael Duffey• 25

 Ferrari Quarterly Price Guide *Ferrari 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.

Sheehan Speaks by Michael Sheehan Grand Touring Bargains rom 1947 to 1957 Ferrari evolved from a small race shop, producing only two cars, to a world-recognized highperformance company building 200 cars. However, its cars were still mostly custom-built and very expensive to produce. Ever the realist, Enzo Ferrari felt there was a market for a luxury Gran Turismo that could be built and sold in volume (by Ferrari standards, anyway) with standardized production features. The profits from this would go to support Ferrari's ever-increasing and ever-more expensive racing efforts. So, in 1957 the 250 PF coupe was born, beginning with S/N 0841 and ending in 1960 with S/N 2081. Just over 350 250 PF coupes were sold in just three years, a huge number for the small company. IF Proving that practicality has its market appeal, note that the 250 PF coupe was a much more popular car than its competition-oriented sibling, the 250 TDF, of which fewer than 100 were sold in essentially the same time period. When new, the 250 PF coupe and the 250 TDF were comparable in price, approximately $12,000 in America at Luigi Chinetti Motors. Today, of course, the 250 TDF is worth much more, with a Scaglietti-bodied 1958 TDF selling for $650,000 plus and the very limited production Zagato-bodied or 14-louvre 250 TDF competition cars selling for as much as $1.5 million. Meanwhile, a 250 PF coupe with the same chassis, brakes, suspension, engine and transmission, but with a less attractive Pininfarina-designed GT body sells for $35,000 to $85,000. Why the huge discrepancy in price? It's very simple. The TDF guarantees you entry into the Tour de France, the Shell Historic races, the Monterey Historics, or virtually any historical competition event on the planet. And if you are lucky enough to have one of the Zagato or 14-louvre TDFs, you are also welcome to grace the lawns of the Bagatelle and Pebble Beach. All of this conspires to drive TDF prices up. On the other hand, a 250 PF coupe will not get you an entry into the Mille Miglia, nor will it get you onto the lawn at Pebble Beach or the Bagatelle, and, with 350 cars built, they seem, at least in the world of pre-1960 Ferraris, almost ordinary. Strangely, the earlier 250 PF coupes, with their 16" wire wheels, skinny tires, drum brakes, recalcitrant transmission, single distributor and down-on-horsepower inside plug engines are the most valuable of the 250 PF coupes. They have a '50s mystique to them and fewer survive than of the later cars. A well-restored example will bring as much as $85,000 today, a number that is still less than the cost of restoring one. Shortly after S/N 1500 all 250 PF coupes were fitted with disc brakes for much-improved stopping, a more powerful and less smoky outside plug engine, a four speed with overdrive transmission and wider and stronger 15" wire wheels. A well-restored example will bring about $75,000 today, again, much less than the cost of a restoration. Both early- and late-model 250 PF coupes are wonderful Grand Touring cars, with a silky smooth V12 giving a top speed of 125 mph plus, pretty heady stuff for 1958. Combined with a reasonably quiet cockpit, comfortable seats and a smooth shifting trans- February, 2000 We would like to thank our many loyal customers who have now made us the largest independent Ferrari service and restoration facility in Los Angeles.

Unfortunately, the supply of unmolested 250 PF coupes dimin- ished greatly during the '80s, as they were often used as donor ram to rebuild or restore TTIFc or as the nnderninnincrc for the various TR re-creations that were created to allow poseurs to look rich while driving to the mall. Today, a good 250 PF coupe is the best buy available for the enthusiast who doesn't own shares in a dot-corn company, and who wants to go on the Colorado Grand, the California Mille and similar touring events for vintage cars. 250 PF coupe costs less than a TDF, but you can't enter the Mille Miglia. Find a car that was restored in the heady days of the late 1980s, when any early V12 Ferrari was worth over $250,000 and have it inspected by the mechanics of your choice. Step up and buy the best example you can find and enjoy the experience of being behind the wheel of a piece of history. Prices of 250 PF coupes have been creeping up of late, but you can still find one for less than half the cost of a full-bore restoration. It's is unlikely that they will go down in value in the foreseeable future. •

Etceterini & Friends Market Place 1951 Simca 8 Super Sport I • Chassis number: 912853 Engine: 1981cc, 4 cylinder :1•1 license in their factory at Nanterre which had previously produced the Donnet cars. For many years the fortunes of Simca were closely linked to those of the tuning wizard Amedee Gordini and many competition successes were achieved including class wins in the 1949-50 Alpine and Monte Carlo rallies in the hands of drivers such as Jean Behra and Johny Claes. S The Simca 8 Sports Coupe made its debut in 1949 and was shown at Earls Court in 1950 in convertible and fixed-head form; the latter had an aluminum body made under license from Pininfarina by Facel Metallon who later became known for their work with the Facel Vega car. It was a handsome car which attracted a great deal of attention. In this form it was fitted with a 1221cc Simca engine developing 50 hp with a quoted top speed of 85 mph. Years produced  Number produced  The car pictured here is the Super Sports version, sometimes known as the Mille Miglia. It uses the twin overhead cam twoliter Fiat-Simca engine which produces 110 hp and has a top speed of 125 mph. Coil- Tune-up/major service  Distributor cap  Chassis #  Engine #  Club  Web site  Alternatives  imca first appeared in 1934, making Fiat cars under Original list price ...

Described as being in good condition throughout and finished in gleaming black with green interior trim, this is an extremely rare car which exemplifies the art of the coachbuilder during the February, 2000  highly creative period of the early '50s and should be suitable for high-speed touring or as an asset to any collection. The car described here sold for $25,300 (at .6160 Pounds Sterling to $1.00) at the Coys of Kensington Auction held May 10, 1999 in London. The Simca 8 shares more than a little in common with the Cisitalia 202 Coupe. Both are based on the same Pininfarina design and both carry a tuned Fiat or Fiatlicensed 1100cc power unit. Easily one of the prettiest cars of its day, the Cisitalia and the Simca are still stylistic standouts but hamstrung by mediocre performance from their tiny engines. Even when the 1100 was enlarged to 1221cc in 1951, the performance wasn't anywhere near as dynamic as the appearance of the car. This Simca however, is fitted with a two-liter twin cam unit. The auction catalog is vague on the origins of this engine—is it from a later Fiat Spider? In any event, a two-liter engine just might make a real car out of a Simca 8. While essentially the same car as a Cisitalia, the collecting world has never gotten very excited about Simcas. A 1948-56 N/A N/A $1,000-1,500 $25 if Fiat engine Plate on firewall Cisitalia in driving condition should bring $35-60,000. The Simca 8 would be expected to fetch (in similar condition) much less. The added sizzle of the two-liter engine and European papers certainly increase the figure making the sale price of $25,300 a fair deal for all parties involved in the sale. —Michael Duffey• 29

Paddock Publisher: MBI Publishing Company, distributed by Classic Motorbooks Phone: 800/826-6600 Size: 101/2" x 10'A" hardcover. 176 pages. Price: $39.95 Rating: Corvette racing fans: Ifrth:r1r Casual enthusiast: was left to the efforts of privateers like Briggs Cunningham to fly the Chevy banner in the late '50s and early '60s; whatever help came from the factory was low-key and confidential. On the street, Chevys might have been contenders in the stoplight drag horsepower wars but the on-track perfor- It was mance of the Shelby Cobra showed that it would take more than a few well-heeled amateurs for the Corvette to win on the track. This set the stage for the development of a factory-backed project specifically built with its sights on the Cobra, the Corvette Grand Sport. The story of the design and development of the Grand Sport including chassis, engine and the drivers, is told here by Lowell C. Paddock with photos by Dave Friedman. Friedman's work is familiar to fans of his books on the Chaparral, Shelby Cobras and Ford GT40. As team photographer for the Shelby American Racing team in the '60s, Friedman was behind the scenes during this dynamic period. The rivalry between the Shelby Cobras and the Corvette Grand Sports was intense, and created several dramatic standoffs between the teams, all captured with Friedman's camera. The author interviewed all of the key players and through anecdotes augmented by Friedman's photos, tells the story of the handful of Grand Sports. This book covers how they were built, raced, sold-off and finally restored by their current owners. The Cars of BMC Author: Graham Robson Publisher: Motor Racing Publications, distributed by Classic Motorbooks Phone: 800/826-6600 Size: 81/4" x 103/4" soft bound. 302 pages. Price: $39.95 Rating: BMC Fans: **** Casual enthusiast: *1/2 The British Motors Corporation (BMC) conglomerate (an English General Motors— what a role model) came into being during the early '50s and the big players that came to the table for the initial merger were Austin and Morris. The other acquisitions and mergers that made up what we know as the BMC, including Jaguar (through British Motor Holdings) are all covered in Graham Robson's book, The Cars of BMC. BMC encompassed several brand names familiar to British car enthusiasts stateside: Austin, MG, AustinHealey, and Morris, as well as a few less familiar marques including Riley, Wolseley and Vanden Plas. This book is somewhere in between a catalog and a spotter's guide. All of the BMC marques are covered alphabetically. Within each marque's section are specification tables including production numbers and changes from a previous or similar model. Also included are production charts that show the "life" of each model and a very interesting section that outlines the development and fitment of BMC A-, B- and C-Series engines to various models from 1951 through 1968. February, 2000  Datsun Z: Fairlady to 280Z Author: Brian Long  Publisher: Veloce Publishing, distributed by Classic Motorbooks Phone: 800/826-6600 Size: 81/2" x 10" hardcover. 160 pages. Price: $39.95 Rating: Datsun sports car fans: le-thlrlIr Casual enthusiast: 71-11r Introduced at a time when safety and emissions legislation caused the extinction of several marques and neutered many of the survivors, the Z was one of the few affordable and appealing all-new cars of its day. Japan had produced sports cars in limited numbers and limited scope prior to the Z but it was the Z that put Datsun and perhaps even Japan on the enthusiast's radar screen. The genesis of the Z car, its connection to both the earlier Datsun roadsters and other models made between 1960-1978, makes for absorbing reading. To tell the story of the Z car, author Brian Long has collected an interesting group of period photos and has dovetailed them with his history of not only the Z but Datsun's history back to the '30s. This book can also function as a rudimentary purchase and restoration guide. All of the Z models are covered through the 280 model including Japanese-, US- and European-market models. Datsun's involvement with rallying and road racing are each given their own chapter and full specifications are provided including separate sections on engine specs and production numbers.

Datsun Sports Roadsters ( 1 500, 1600, a 2000) ,T he first reaction of many sports car enthusiasts when they saw the Datsun 1600 roadster in 1965 was that the Japanese had created a rather crude imitation of the already-dated MGB. They were wrong on three counts. The Datsun 1600 and its later companion, the Datsun 2000, were not copies of the MGB. Though not as attractive, they outperformed their counterparts in both quality and performance. And rather than being backward-looking automobiles, they actually were the first in the series of Japanese sports cars that each broke new ground in defining quality expectations for enthusiast cars. The 1600 and 2000 roadsters certainly had more than a passing resemblance to the MGB. Exterior styling cues, interior layout, suspension, and general engine characteristics on the 1600 were virtually identical to the MGB. Even the dual sidedraft carburetors were identical, with the Datsun carbs manufactured by Hitachi under license from SU. , engineered. In fact, the Datsun 1500 (also referred to as the SPL310 and called the Fairlady in Japan) was introduced at the New York Auto Show in January 1962, nine months before the MGB made its debut at the London Motor Show. Unless SU was slipping Datsun the plans for the MGB in its carburetor specs, the Japanese can't be charged with strict imitation. The 1500, of course, seems to have been little more than a trial balloon, with very few sold in the United States. It wasn't until three years later that the 1600 (coded SPL-311) was introduced and made But this was not a copy, at least not in the sense of having been reverse- Sports Car Market Pocket Price Guide Five-starappreciation predictions, vehicle evaluation forms, market commentary, plus new Corvette and American muscle car section.

Selling for twenty percent less than the MGB, the 1600 offered a completely-equipped car with superior fit-and-finish and vastly improved interior comfort. Yes, acceleration was down a little from the European cars, and road-testers wrote that the Japanese didn't have a clue about how to tune a sports car suspension. Nevertheless, the transmission was significantly easier to shift, and braking (with front discs replacing the drums on the 1500) was the best of any sports car tested at that time. They also commented that with the top up, "GT" should stand for "giraffe transport" referring to the ungainly look, but no one complained about a lack of head room, problems with visibility, or rain penetrating the weather seals. Bob Sharp Racing in Connecticut showed the car's true potential by tweaking the 1600 just a bit, and winning the SCCA FProduction national championship in 1967. As with so many other Japanese developments in the '60s and '70s, the Datsun engineers took all the lessons from this experience and created the Datsun 2000 (SRL-311) which was introduced in 1968. An overhead cam engine with a lengthened stroke provided 400 extra cubic centimeters and produced 135 bhp. The fivespeed transmission, not available on any other car at near the price, was standard as well, producing a top speed of 114 mph. Datsun 2000, not an MGB rip-off pick-up truck. The advantages then are still advantages now. A car in good restored condition can be driven winter and summer in comfort, and long highway trips are a pleasure. The performance differences also are the same now as then. When we autocrossed, if the Fiat club set the course, we could count on being beaten by the 124 Spiders because of their better handling on tight courses. But if the Corvette club set the course, we could count on bringing home trophies since the longer distances allowed us to beat the MGBs, Sunbeams, and Fiats, and we could still get around the corners faster than the 'Vettes. During the five years we owned the car, we had to replace the clutch twice (which requires pulling the engine) and the exhaust system once. Caution is the watchword in buying an unrestored car today. Many of these cars became "beaters" because they could be driven with little or no maintenance until everything died simultaneously. Aside from the normal stuff to look for in any '60s sports car, worn cam lobes are a weak spot because of the rocker arm design. Compared to MGs, or even Healeys, there weren't very many made, but enthusiasts maintain a surprisingly good supply of parts and a strong support network.—Gary Anderson • Years produced  Tune-up/major service  Distributor cap  Chassis #  Engine #  Club  Web site  Alternatives  Number sold in North America  1500 (3,148); 1600 (23,609); 2000 (15,718) Original list price  SCM Price Guide  1500 (1962-66); 1600 (1965-70); 2000 (1968-70) 1500 ($2,465); 1600 ($2,546); 2000 ($2,950) $4,000-6,500 $300 $45 Plate on firewall in engine compartment.

The result was a car that was bumped all the way up to C-production and even with its four cylinders did quite well against the Porsches and Corvettes in the class. I bought my Datsun 2000 the year it was introduced, because it was the cheapest Cproduction car available, and because my wife said that in comparison, the MGB drove like a

A s we look back on the auctions of 1999, a few themes are recurrent. First, the new wealth continues to have a major impact on the high end of the market. Whether created by telecommunications, software or dot-com, CEOs and founders, typically in their mid-30s to mid-50s, continue to turn small bits of their stock fortunes into high-end collectible cars. However, rather than blindly buying anything red ending with a vowel, like the fabled lemming-like procession of orthodontists who mortgaged their houses to buy Boxers in 1989, these new collectors are as shrewd with their purchases as they were when developing their companies. While late-model Ferrari Testarossas and Boxers continue to decline in value (imagine spending more on a serial production Porsche Boxster S than a blazingly-quick, limited-production 365 BB), values of historically important Ferraris continue to soar. In the Price Guide this month, "stock" 250 GT Tour de Frances have gone up 16% in the past year, but Zagato-bodied TdFs have soared 56% (proven by the $1.7M Brooks got for one at Gstaad). In the non-dot-corn world, early, pre1974 Porsche 911s continue to gather strength. For the under-$25,000 collector, they represent a near-perfect blend of technical sophistication, reliability and performance. Unlike the situation with similarly-priced Maserati Ghibli coupes or Alfa 2600 Spiders, finding a competent mechanic and a ready supply of parts for a 911 is relatively simple. Lancias continue to be the dark horse of the Italian segment of the collectible world, with B24 Spyders and Convertibles finally showing strength. Even the B2OGT coupes, acknowledged as brilliant cars but with a small following, have started to move. We expect 2000 to bring more of the same, and will be there to report for you as the sales occur.—ED. 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.

The second Gstaad sale saw a lot of activity, with numerous bidders thronging the ballroom of the exclusive Swiss mountain resort's Palace Hotel, and as many again on the global telephone-bidding network. As with their first Gstaad auction last year, Brooks offered a hand-picked crosssection of mostly world-class cars and automobilia from the full span of Enzo Ferrari's career. Brooks' 1998 Gstaad sale grossed $4.66M, their 1999 Millennium sale nearly doubled this. 13 Once again, rare and important cars with good history made strong money, while daily drivers in slightly disheveled condition sold at market price or below.

However, the new owner not only has the most-unloved mid-engined Ferrari, he's got the slowest one as well. Price was surprisingly high, given that 3liter 308s can be found for just a little more. #415-1981 FERRARI 308 GTSI Coupe. Body by Pininfarina. S/N 039567. Odo: red cloth. RHD.

In fact, they were once bigger than Barrett-Jackson. In more recent years the auction has declined, but now that RM - owns it, they are breathing life back into the old girl at last. This year's event produced a disappointing overall sale rate of 24.3%, with Saturday being a strong day, and Friday and Sunday weak. What bodes well for the future is that there was a really fine selection of sports cars, and the crowd, especially on Saturday, was at least twice as large as it has been in the past. Some of the cars that caught my attention were the restored 1960 Jaguar XK 150S for $51,940, the 1959 Porsche 356A Convertible D roadster that was bid to $51,500, but not sold, and the red 1961 Ferrari 250 GT PF Cabriolet with black leather interior that went for $101,700. The line-up of English cars was especially extensive. I spoke with RM, and they confirmed that they are committed to the Newport auction for the long haul. Their plans for next year include more advance work, and a ramped-up national and local advertising schedule. There's no reason that Newport cannot once again attain its former prominence in the auction world— it has the location, the good weather and the wealthy demographics necessary for success. Now what it will take is the willpower on RM's part to go through the rebuilding process, which they say they have.—B.L. Sports Car Market ctireas ch

They called it a stunning restoration but it wasn't. Paint scrape forward of the driver's door, overspray in the wheel wells, disc wheels and spats, wide whitewalls. Sound, fairly correct but a lot of unsatisfying details to be remedied. Cond: 3+. SOLD AT $38,690. A good buy, but if you want to show the car, you've got a lot of work to do. If you just want a driver, you've bought one well. #628 -1953 MG-TD ROADSTER. S/N TD19720. Odo: 2,844. White/red vinyl/ black top. Older restoration to a daily- restored, appears correct and happy. A driver, but certainly a nice one. Good chrome, paint and interior. Cond: 3. SOLD AT $40,280. Fair money for everyone, I would say. It's not a Bloomington Gold cal; and it didn't fetch a telephone number for a price. Good stuff at market money. #507 -1958 FORD FAIRLANE 500 SICYLINER Retractable. SN G8LW112447. Odo: 59,950. Red, white/white vinyl, red chrome wire wheels, many concours wins to its credit. A very nice car with an attentive owner who uses the car a lot. Cricket bat on the spare tire is an amusing touch. Cond: 2+. NOT SOLD AT $23,000. The owner wanted $25,000, so the bid was close to enough, and in fact it could have been sold at that money. PA's are severely underpowered which limits their utility and their appeal, but it was certainly candy for the eyes. #437 -1948 MG-TC ROADSTER. S/N XPAG7311. Odo: 10,587. BRGreen/tan. A cloth. A lot of minor paint and chrome flaws. Interior was okay but not crisp. Cracked driver's side window. Basically sound, but not a diamond. Cond: 3. SOLD AT $14,840. Sold at the low end of the market.

Decent paint and chrome, original black plate California car. Owner wanted $14,000. Cond: 3. NOT SOLD AT $10,800. There was nothing about this car that justified any more money. Great TDs are $16,000 to $20,000 cars, and this one was well short of great. #429 -1956 AUSTIN-HEALEY 100/M. S/ N BN2123978. Odo: 1,480. Green, white/ black leather/black top. Correct factory beautifully restored car, correct except for the wood dash. A show winner and I wanted it. Cond: 2. SOLD AT $31,800. This was also a bargain, given the quality of the restoration. You could not restore the average TC to this level for what the car cost. #465 -1952 JAGUAR XK120 ROADSTER. S/N 671704. Odo: 0. Olde English A lovely but not popular color. 283, 4-barrel automatic.

Only 1,159 Ms ever built, making them a minor rarity. #655 -1957 MGA 1500 ROADSTER S/N BP150GB10117. Odo: 25,612. Blue/tan leather. Fully restored to a very good standard.

Not sold, although bid to the same level as a wellrestored Roadster in this sale. Restoring any MGA is a labor of love, not of good economics. Car was a credit to the owner who did it. What's it worth? Bid was probably enough for a coupe. #480 -1960 MGA TWIN-CAM ROADSTER. SIN YD31169. Odo: 23,275. Red/red well enough, but the cheapie interior kit and top, and the overall "flat" appearance hurt it. No pizzazz. Needed wire wheels and a bit more money spent on the interior to make it sing. Cond: 3. NOT SOLD AT $15,700. Not worth more, given its shortcomings. If you have a rusty MGA with wire wheels in your car port, and your Uncle has an upholstery shop, you might do well to contact the owner. #648 -1962 AUSTIN-HEALEY 3000 MK2 ROADSTER. S/N 4BT7L14390.

The higher-priced cars such as a 1958 300SL roadster, a 1937 Rolls-Royce Phantom III, 1954 Mercedes 300S cabriolet, a 1955 Gullwing and a 1936 Mercedes 500K cabriolet, all offered with reserve, failed to sell. Other highlights included an exceptional Ferrari 250GT SVVB which sold well at just over $800K. A lovely 1955 Bentley R-type Continental fastback with a 4.9 engine also changed hands as did a good cross-section of Jaguars, Astons, Bentleys, Ferraris and Porsches. Interesting etceterini such as a Kieft, Daimler Conquest, an Allard saloon that had been bricked up for a quarter century and a Kurds 500S that had recently been proving itself the scourge of English vintage race tracks, also went to new garages. In all, it appears Coys enjoyed a good sale thanks to an excellent selection, realistic estimates, some no-reserve cars and, like any interesting auction should have, some surprising bargains as well as a few "through the roof' bids to keep the crowd's full attention.—D.B.

Equipment: GM/Oldsmobile 455 CID V8 engine (all Toronados), engine number not accessible due to equipment; GM Turbo-Hydramatic automatic transmission; GM power steering; GM power brakes (vacuum assist on drums and discs); power windows; 6-way power seat; all seasons A/C and heating system; AM FM radio; cruise control system; tilt and telescope steering wheel; center console with lockable glove box. Condition: Using the traditional rating scale of 1 to 5 for vintage and/or collector cars (1, mint/show/perfect; 2, very good; 3, good; 4, fair; 5, poor/rough/basket case), this good physical survivor is in good #3 cosmetic condition, but #4 or worse mechanical condition with a "tweaked/bent" frame and some mechanical difficulties. The "GT" package is not reflected in the VIN; hence, this could be a factory application on a standard Toronado, or added by the selling dealer or a previous owner. Exterior: This Toronado is a good physical specimen with little rust and filler. Decent repaint; replaced vinyl top in close-to original color. Glass is in #2-#3 condition, #1 lenses; #1 bumpers and grille (possibly replaced but no records available); new tires, #2 wheels and #2 hubs. Interior: The seats and panels are done in white parchment vinyl with some of the original showing its age. Dash was redone, Mylar-covered items (plastic chrome that GM used then) show age and are not redeemable or replaceable. The lights work, signals work but they don't register on the dash, radio works, the cruise does not. The A/C does not blow cold. Dampness is apparent inside everywhere; assume that seals (most are unavailable) need to be replaced. Attractive overall, but #3 only, not for show. Trunk: It is mostly original, seals are mostly origi nal (some replaced) but should all be replaced again. Tools are in place, the tread on the spare shows asymmetrical wear much more than normal indicating frame/suspension problems. Engine compartment: Original and clean. Wiring original and okay. Cruise cable and controls not right. Cooling system looks redone. Lots of seep leaks under transmission box, etc., all oozing and tired. 1967 MASERATI MEXICO COUPE Light tarVblack leather. 41 - liter, new paint interior and chrome.

It is very tired and should have much more pep. It needs a complete overhaul, although no serious "ticking” or "banging" apparent. There are no records to check on the transmission. At 127,000 miles, this type of transmission/transaxle would have to be overhauled (usually around 100,000) but there's no way to tell. History: This is the last year for the first generation front-wheel-{lrive Toronado. If it is a real "GT" it is a rare car as few have survived with a decent body like this one Some small rust areas will surely pop up during the prep for repaint but can easily be dealt with now Much confusion exists about the "GT" designation in 1970. GM had a terrible strike and lost $90 million so they did everything imaginable to get cars out. This car's VIN denotes that it's a standard model but the GT package could have been put on it by the factory or selling dealer.

From Grand Classics to Twin Stripes of Smoking Rubber 1955 Packard Caribbean Convertible Chassis number: 55881067 t is ironic that Packard should fail just as the company introduced what may be the most innovative and well-designed product line in the history of the company. The blame lay not with the product, but rather a series of management misadventures, including the ill-fated merger with Studebaker. The Caribbean featured a new, high output OHV V8 with dual 4 bbl carburetors which produced 275 bhp. A new push button Twin Ultramatic transmission was also debuted as was an innovative new torsion bar suspension featuring self-leveling, giving the 1955-56 Packards the best combination of handling and ride among fullsize American cars. 1 New styling was modem, fresh and attractive. The Caribbeans featured striking three-tone paint schemes with matching leather interiors and a lavish anodized dashboard design. This particular car has benefited from a full professional restoration. The paint, chrome and interior condition are excellent and the engine bay is well detailed. The car described here sold for well below its pre-auction estimate of $40,000-50,000, when it brought just $30,800 at the Rill Auction at Meadow Brook Hall in Rochester, MI. In SCM's report on the auction it was noted that this car carried the attractive option of Kelsey-Hayes wire wheels. We also called it "A decent restoration with less-than-perfect body panel fit" and pegged its overall condition a 2-. The 1955 series were the long-awaited "modern" Packards. Brilliantly restyled by Dick Teague and his design crew using Packard's 1951 body shell and a pin-money budget, the cars were, as noted in the RM catalog description, modern, fresh and attractive. They managed to look thoroughly up-to-date yet unmistakably Packard. Full credit to Packard, too, for their efforts in making the car utterly forwardlooking mechanically as well. But in their rush to present an "all new" car too little Years produced  Number produced  Original list price  SCM price Guide  Tune-up/major service  Distributor cap  Chassis #  Engine #  Club  Ph/fax  Alternatives  development went into these innovations. The first year V8 engines developed noisy hydraulic lifters and too soon these proud automobiles could be heard coming down the street sounding like a concert of castanets. The Dual Range Ultramatic was a great idea on paper but it became known for blowing seals and dumping fluid on highways, byways and driveways. The third February, 2000  leg of the innovation stool also was shaky in its execution—the cars could be seen driving along in a nose-down attitude like chrome-plated Bloodhounds or tail-down like a James Dean Mercury due to lousy electrical connections in the overly complex suspension system. This, needless to say, is not the way Mrs. Plushbottom expected her expensive new Packard to behave and the 1955 cars lost the company an immeasurable amount of good will among long-time marque loyalists. Inevitably, this was reflected in Packard's dismal 1956 sales and brought Packard to the brink of extinction.

Also, modern-day restorers have found a number of fixes for the cars over the past 40-plus years that should make such un-Packardlike behavior a thing of the past if the restoration has been done right. This car sold for a bit under the right kind of money considering its rarity (only 500 1955 Caribbeans were produced) and condition. With all of the recent work, it should be a pleasant car to drive to meets and also be a crowd-pleaser in the show itself The price likely represents just the cost of the car's restoration—these cars require acres of leather and buckets of plating material as well as the aforementioned 1955-56 776 $5,932 fob. Detroit N/A $250 $50 Cadillac Eldorado, Continental Mk. II mechanical attention. And a rusty body—for which they are also well known—can chew up money faster than a college tuition bill. This car and its 1956 brethren also represent the top of the range of the last of the "real" Packards, a marque which surely deserved a better fate than ending its days as a rebadged Studebaker.—Dave Brownell• 55

Legal Files I by Alexander Leventhal f you think your collector car is covered when you drive it on the race track, you'd better think again. When we last visited this issue (June 1999), we had no clear courtroom decision to use as a precedent. This is no longer the case. Judge J. Borenstein has recently handed down a decision on this very issue from his bench at the Middlesex Superior Court in Massachusetts in deciding the case of Metropolitan Property and Casualty Insurance Company versus Stevens. This case is not binding authority for other courts and it will surely be appealed. Nevertheless it is important to cover here, because Borenstein's decision is the only clear statement by a court on the law that applies to determining insurance coverage for club "track events." Therefore, it will certainly be viewed as persuasive authority by other courts and, more importantly, by insurance companies facing this issue and deciding whether to pay claims arising out of these events. The facts of this case were much like the facts of the case I covered last year. Defendant Stevens was involved in two separate accidents on two separate occasions while driving his Porsche 911 at Bridgehampton Speedway in New York. His 911 was street legal, but featured a racing seat, 5-point harnesses, and other performance and safety modifications. Both events were PCA (Porsche Club of America) "track events" which the club characterizes as "driving schools." No starting or finishing positions are tracked, instructors are provided (although they are not in all of the cars on the track at all times) and no lap times are recorded. Defendant Stevens was paid for his first claim, which he reported as having occurred on a "private way." When Plaintiff Metropolitan was investigating his second claim, they discovered that both accidents had occurred at Bridgehampton Speedway. They sued Stevens, seeking to recover the money that was paid to him on the first claim and seeking a declaratory judgement stating that they did not have to pay the second claim under the "racing exclusion." The defendant counterclaimed, seeking a judgement stating that the insurance company should be forced to pay his claim because he was involved in a "driving school," not a "race speed contest." Metropolitan argued that the car was driven at racing speeds on a race track, and that the vehicle was modified for racing. Stevens claimed the modifications were for "safety and aesthetics" and that he was participating in a non-race oriented driving school where lap times and positions were not recorded. February, 2000  Judge Borenstein took a very hard-line view of the case. He did not buy the argument that insurance coverage should apply because it was a driving school and not a race, nor that the vehicle's modifications were not for racing. He stated in his decision, "The purpose of the racing exclusion in the policy was to protect insurance companies from situations where an automobile is not usually found and which present additional hazards and increased risk of loss for which the insurance company did not contract. . . In the instant case there is not a genuine issue of material fact with respect to the issue of whether the defendant was racing on the dates in question. It is clear to the court that the Defendant Stevens was engaged in 'racing' regardless of the terms he uses to describe the events. The court finds as a matter of fact and concludes as a matter of law the following: Stevens spent a substantial amount of money to improve his vehicle for the purpose of racing, he was driving his vehicle on a known raceway, he was participating in driving 'events' sponsored by the Porsche Club of America, he was travelling at more than 70 mph during both accidents. . ." Therefore, his accidents occurred while racing and indemnification is specifically excluded under the race speed exclusion. Thusly, he ruled against Stevens. He was so confident in his opinion, in fact, that he made this ruling on a Motion for Summary Judgement, not even allowing the case to be heard at trial. Don't try to pass this off as a parking lot scrape. until an appeal is heard on this case, this is the only articulated case law on this issue, and it will be viewed as persuasive authority by courts and insurance companies alike. Therefore, the only safe course for the enthusiast right now, until an appeal is heard or conflicting case law is created, is to understand that the use of a vehicle on a race track in any "track event," including club "driving schools," will simply not be covered by a standard insurance policy. Personally, I feel that the Judge, clearly not a "car guy," did not fully understand the issues presented, and that he therefore could not properly distinguish between racing (not covered) and simply driving on a racetrack (arguably covered). Nevertheless, at least 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.• 57 )  On Track, No Coverage

The AC • Aston Martin • Austin-Healey • Bentley • Rolls-Royce • Jaguar • Lotus • MG • Triumph E lr‘GliSY Chassis number: 73CA-04 n 1966, a new form of racing started in the US and Canada. This was the famous Can-Am series, short for the CanadianAmerican Trophy. John Surtees won the first Can-Am title in a Lola T-70 in 1966 but after this, McLarens in the hands of Bruce McLaren himself and Denny Hulme, ruled the series. Like Lola, McLaren depended for financial survival on selling copies of its winning cars to private customers who would then go have fun in the series and if the leading cars broke, stand a chance of winning. 1 The M8D, which preceded the "E" was the factory car of 1970. Featuring a monocoque "tub" or chassis, these cars had independent suspension front and rear with twin wishbone setup and angled shock absorbers inside coil-springs. The rear suspension comprised the classic British single upper link with reversed bottom wishbones and coil-spring/shock absorber units. Massive magnesium alloy uprights connected the wishbones and mounted the ventilated disc brake/caliper assemblies. A big-block Chevrolet engine with Reynolds aluminum block (for lightness), a Hewland LG 600 five-speed gearbox and glass reinforced plastic bodywork completed the missile. It was during this period that the use of down-force was beginning to be appreciated and the M8 series was not alone in featuring a sharply raked nose and a large rear wing to hold the car to the ground. Although this particular M8 E/F does not have its original McLaren chassis tag, which likely ended up on some mechanic's tool box, it is a genuine McLaren with continuous ownership history from new. The car's identity is thus 73CA-04, the number stamped into the original SCCA 1973 logbook when the first owner, Pete Sherman passed technical inspection at the Mosport Can-Am race on June 19, 1973. After Mosport, Sherman ran four more  Years produced  Tune-up/major service  Distributor cap  Chassis #  Engine #  Club  Alternatives  Number produced ... approx. 12-15 (M8 E); 12-13 (M8 F) Original list price  SCM Price Guide  Metal plate on tub near steering rack Right front of original Chevy block on top McLaren Club, 11515 9th Ave. NE, Seattle, WA 98125; e-mail: mycolin@msn.com Shadow DN-2, Lola T-260 Can-Ams—Road Atlanta (14th), Mid Ohio (17th) and Road America (DNF), seemingly having "peaked early" with his Mosport result. In 1974, Jim Lockheart took over the M8 F and ran a half dozen SCCA Nationals and the 1974 Mid-Ohio Can-Am, according to the log book. By 1975, Larry Matteo bought the car and did four more nationals. The McLaren sat in Matteo's basement until purchased by Harley Cluxton in the late '70s via dealer Bill Kontes. (Billy Wonder remembers picking up the M8 F from Matteo and trucking it to Cluxton in Phoenix.) The McLaren then entered a period of California-based historic racing, ending-up with David Kopf, who sold it to the current owner. With a recent $40,000 overhaul of the tub, suspension and running gear, including a new Keith Black 58  aluminum 509 CID, fuel-injected motor, he qualified the M8 F on the pole at Road Atlanta (1:22.192) and finished 3rd overall at the 1977 Road America Can-Am Reunion while turning a new lap record time of 2:12.93, an average speed of 108.325 mph. This car sold for $192,500 when it crossed the block at the RM Monterey Auction on August 27-28, 1999. There is a funny truism about serious race machinery. If you want a car with glorious history you have to sacrifice a fair amount of originality. Any front-runner or works entry typically receives the latest modifications and any other massaging that will result in a podium finish. Not-so-well funded efforts usually can't afford the latest bits and have to make do with what they've got. They also can't afford a lot of spares, so they go more slowly and try to avoid crashing. That probably explains why this car has survived several seasons of racing; it was usually ten laps in arrears at the finish but a survivor nonetheless. A Can-Am car that was also a winner in 1973 was the Porsche 917/30. By the time 1973 rolled around, the CanAm series was in fact a Porsche 917/30 stranglehold. Team McLaren didn't field 1970-73 $20,000 (rolling chassis) N/A $500-2000 $20 (if fitted) a factory Can-Am effort after 1972 and didn't run a "works 'M8 of any flavor after 1970. Still if you wanted a new McLaren in 1973 and didn't want to get in line for the three used M20s that they sold that year an M8 E/F is what you got. The M8 series were good cars and were good enough to hold together even when they squeezed tons of horsepower out of their Chevies. Today in historic racing, few of the later M20s appear on the grid and even fewer Porsche 917s, hence the pole position for this M8 at the Can-Am reunion. A big block M8 with a more successful past and a few more spares (this car had only a spare set of wheels) is worth closer to $200K This car sold for an appropriate price given its history, specs and spares.—Michael Duffey• Sports Car Market 1972 McLaren M8 E/F Can-Am SV 7N Digest of Magnificent Motor Cars Market Review Buyer's Guide

  English Car 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.

PORSCHE * MERCEDES-BENZ * BMW UND ANDERE GERMAN C R 1973 Porsche Carrera RS Chassis number: 9113601342 Engine: Flat six-cylinder, 2.7 liters Market Review Buyer's Guide ,T February, 2000  The Carrera 'RS' was available for sale only in Europe, and very few found their way to the US. Most RS's left the factory painted white; this car, however, was born a dramatic India Red. The car is also stated to have been fully restored to full 'lightweight' specs and to 'Pebble Beach' standards. It has several 'Best in Show' concours awards and has covered only 800 miles since restoration. This lovely 911 was declared not sold with a high bid of $43,000 at the Kensington Auto Classic Auction, May 28-29, 1999, in  Bridgehampton, NY. In my view, the seller he Carrera 'RS' was the first phase in Porsche's production car racing program, started in 1972. The 'RS' was based on the 911S, and one of the first concerns was to save weight. This was accomplished mainly by removing the rear seats, by making the body of thinner steel and by using fiberglass bumpers. Another concern was to improve aerodynamics and handling, and this is where the ducktail and front air dam played important roles. The engine, also from the 911S, was enlarged to produce 210 hp. Although the Carrera 'RS' was intended for racing, for which a production of only 500 was required for homologation, in fact over 1,000 were produced, with fifty being brought up to full competition specs with a 3-liter engine and called `RSR.' , Year produced Number produced  Original list price  SCM Price Guide  Tune-up/major service Distributor cap  Chassis #    Engine #  Club  Web site  when confronted with the task of moving the 500 copies needed to homologate the car for FIA racing. As a result, many Porsche executives took an RS as their company car and the sales staff worked hard converting 911S buyers into RS customers. These concerns were for naught, however as one week after the Paris Salon closed in October of 1972, the entire run of 500 cars had been sold. Second and third runs of 500 copies each were delivered along with a handful of RSR race cars. Production records show that chassis number 1342 was indeed originally painted India Red, the 911 equivalent of Signal Red, a bright, light, fire-engine red.

The RS was the first production street/race 911 widely available to the public. The factory sales department, which had difficulty selling twenty 911R models in 1968, feared the worst from the start, the full palette of nonmetallic colors were available to RS buyers. This car is an RS-L, conversion option M-472 which means it is trimmed as a standard 911S. But look closely at the photo and you will see missing front, side and rear deco strips. This gives the car a "lightweight" RSR look, but also relieves the owner of sourcing the dreadfully expensive side and rear decos, unique to the Carrera RS. Making a collector car look like something it isn't usually doesn't enhance the value. In thinking about value, we need to be certain this car has its correct engine, with Bosch mechanical fuel injection and a red fan shroud. Although these were strong, durable powerplants, stuff happens and original engines get lost. Assuming it has the correct engine and given a bit of patience by the seller, this early 911 hot rod should be worth $60,000 or so to the right buyer—Jim Schrager• 63

A Square Deal Dear Mr. Schrager: A friend just bought a striking 356 Road- ster and I wonder if he paid too much. The car is a Signal Red/ black 1961 356B. It is fantastic to look at, with sharp body lines, good gaps, and very high-gloss paint that seems nearly flawless. The car is tagged a Super-90 and the engine compartment gleams. The interior is leather—is that correct for this car? He says it is rust free and runs well, however, it was originally different colors and had a 60 hp engine when it was new. He bought it from an exotic car dealer out East who delivered it to Nevada within ten days of his original inquiry for $46,000, transport included. Was this a decent deal? —M.J.H., Reno, NV Dear M.J.H.: Your friend bought a great 356, the T-5 single grille Roadster built in 1960 and 1961. If this car is as good as it looks in the photos you sent, I'd say your friend got a square deal. Sure, I'd like it better if he paid less, but there are few shortcuts in buying a good 356. You either spend your time doing your own homework or pay a dealer to do it for you. Anyone who has spent months looking for a good Porsche at a below market price knows it isn't a trivial job. So just how wonderful is this one? While I am impressed with the crisp gaps on the doors, hood and engine cover, deviations from originality can be costly flaws. Generally engine swaps and color changes negatively affect the value. But in this case, I'd say we have an exception to that rule. Most people prefer the Super-90 with its 90 DIN horsepower to the 60 hp Normal. To make the swap without losing value, the S-90 engine must be legitimate and from the same production sequence as the chassis. The engine serial number tells us this is a 1961 S-90, appropriate for this 1961 Roadster. The car will be eligible for Don't even think a bout it without a copy of. The Used 911 Story, Buying a used 9'11? Porsche's own "Christophorous" magazine wrote: "It would be foolish to buy any pre-owned Porsche without this aid." "Sports Car Market" magazine'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." The Used 911 Story details what you need to know about all 911 models from 1965 to 1998. The author, Peter Zimmerman, has over 30 years of hands-on experience and presents a wealth of knowledge that can only come from actual exposure to 911s and their problems.

(356s with swapped engines are so common that PCA has an entire concours class where the factory build sheet, the Kardex, is not allowed.) A bright d shiny 356 with legit 1961 S-90 engine. Next, we have to ascertain if this engine is a real S-90, or just a 356 engine with an S-90 serial number. The 356 B/C engine blocks are built from three pieces, two halves split vertically and a rear "third piece" that covers the back of the two halves. The engine's serial number is located only on the third piece, so it is possible to bolt an S-90 third piece to any 912 or 356 B/C block. However, all three pieces get a mating number when assembled at the factory. The seller states that the case mating numbers for this engine are 743, which should be displayed on each piece. It takes a mirror to see these numbers for the main case halves located on the top of the engine block, between the fan shroud and the firewall. The third piece's mating number is on the top near the distributor. The final digit to check is the engine type designation, marked on the top of the right case half between the fan shroud and the generator support. The seller noted it is shown as 616/7, correct for a 1961 S-90. All this gives me comfort that this is a legitimate S-90. A color change can hurt the value, but in this case I would say it hasn't. This looks to be a job well done with no signs of the original color showing anywhere. Furthermore, Signal Red (a bright, light red) is both a proper 1961 color and a popular color today. While I might have preferred the original color of Aetna Blue (a light-medium blue-gray), a first-class change to Signal Red probably won't hurt things. The change to leather is almost always seen as an upgrade and does not hurt the value, even though virtually every Roadster produced had a vinyl interior. At $46,000 delivered, your friend paid all the money for this car. A painful lesson I have learned is that it is often far better to get a good car fully priced than an edgy car cheap that either requires a lot of time and effort to make right, or that is never right and remains a worry. Your friend should have a lot of fun with his new Roadster and, if he takes proper care of it, little trouble selling it for at or near what he paid when he is ready to move on.• Sports Car Market

February, 2000  Over three million bricks were ordered and their installation was completed in a remarkable two-month period. Initial time trials, held in late December 1909, proved the "Brickyard" capable of speed, as several world records were set. It would be another year and a half before the first Indianapolis 500 was held and Ray Harroun, in a Marmon, drove to a disputed victory. There is a committed following collecting Indy 500 memorabilia: pit passes, programs, photographs, uniforms and even the original bricks—about fifty dollars apiece—are a few of the cherished items. If you doubt their intensity, attend the Indy 500 Swap Meet held the Saturday prior to race day. Brooks, in their December London auction, offered over 700 lots of toys, models, automobilia, and Formula 1 memorabilia, with the piece de resistance being a large 45" x 84" lithograph poster of the 1914 Indianapolis 500 race. It was stated to be promoting the Calcium Light and Film Company display taking place at the race on May 30, 1914. An argument can be made that the poster is actually promoting a later film showing of the race since it depicts the actual race winner, fit DIANAMILIS. MAO, 1914 HELD If this is an early movie poster it was a bargain even though it sold for over four times Brooks' high estimate. If not, $11,000 and change is still a good buy for a spectacular piece of racing memorabilia that has it all—color, condition and subject matter.—Carl Bomstead• 75 Rene Thomas in his Delage #16, leading the field.
