Shifting Gears / Keith Martin E-Types, E55s and XR-75s I recently spent two weeks streaking across Florida in a Mercedes E55 AMG, one of today's definitive high-performance full-size sedans. From its 469-horsepower supercharged V8 to its crisp-shifting, manually-controllable automatic transmission, the car is a finely-tuned machine that delights in gobbling up vast distances effortlessly. Aside from its expectedly pathetic navigation system, the E55 is so well set up that after a few minutes of familiarization, you feel as if you could be turning hot laps at the Niirburgring. A slightly less-sophisticated machine kept me occupied last weekend. I hauled our battleworn 1978 Honda XR-75 motorcycle out of winter storage, as it was time for yet another youngster to be initiated into the land of chokes, clutches, kick starters and throttles. Oregon's Mt. Hood National Forest is crisscrossed by thousands of one-lane dirt and gravel roads. Originally carved out by lumber companies for their log-laden trucks to use, they are now in generally poor repair and see little use. Which made them the perfect place for my 12-year-old daughter, Alexandra, to learn to ride. Having grown to the impressive height of 4'9-1/2" (the half is important when you're twelve) and weighing 70 pounds, she declared get the bike to fire. I met her plaintive, "Daddy, I'm tired of this, won't you start it for me?" request with a smile, and told her that if she just kept at it, the bike would eventually fire. It did, and from that moment on, it was her bike. She had brought it to life, and now she was going to learn to make it do what she wanted. Once it was burbling along, we moved to the mystifying combination of throttle, clutch, shifter and brakes. Having to coordinate all your appendages at once while rolling down the road is a challenging process. "Stall" is now a word that has a resonance for her. Easy Rider Oregon style. herself ready to learn to ride "the big bike." Although mechanically sound, the Honda proudly bears the scars inflicted by other kids who, while learning to ride, got brake and clutch confused, popped wheelies and usually ran directly into trees. Unlike every exotic car I have ever owned, the Honda started immediately, even after sitting for a year. While rummaging around for the chain lube, spare brake and clutch handles, and other various maintenance items, I thought about the E55. During the 1,500 miles I spent behind the wheel, it never crossed my mind to check the oil level; surely there was an electronic sensor that would let me know if something was amiss. As I adjusted the tension on the Honda's chain, I realized that the chances of my ever doing any maintenance on the E55 or similar modern cars were non-existent. A by-product of the stringent emissions requirements that new cars must meet is the complex, non-user-accessible systems that they require to work properly. Your mechanical responsibilities boil down to this: When the "attention required" light on the dashboard starts to flash, get the car to the dealer. THE OLD FASHIONED WAY Teaching Alex about the care and feeding of a 26-year-old motorcycle was a more complicated experience. New cycles for kids can be bought with electric starts, automatic chokes and clutchless shifting, and maybe in the end, that's a less user-cruel way to go about learning to ride. But as Alex has already demonstrated some mechanical interest and aptitude (she thought learning to drive and shift our VW Thing last summer was a terrific experience), I decided we'd go about Motorcycle 101 the old-fashioned way. The process started with an explanation of checking oil and gas levels and tire pressures. Then it was how to roll the bike while spraying lube on the chain. (Yes, she got the sticky, nasty stuff all over herself as well—isn't that a part of the process?) Looking to see if the chain was dragging on the guide was next, and making sure it was tensioned properly. And finally, given the 55-degree ambient temperature, setting the choke lever to the halfway position. This was followed by the 15-minute kick start process. She had to learn to feel just when the piston was at top dead center, and then how to flick the kick starter with maximum velocity (as opposed to maximum effort) to 12  than a century ago. But as there is gasoline in my veins, and perhaps a little in hers as well, I'm glad I've had the opportunity to help her discover the sometimes maddening, sometimes magical relationship between the skill of an operator and what a machine can deliver in return. I can think of worse things taking up space in the garage than an E55 for lazy cruising down the freeway at triple-digit speeds, and a couple of vintage dirt bikes as a reminder of what it's like to have to understand and truly control a machine to get it to do what you want. LITTLE CAT'S FEET HEADED HERE Soon, there will be a 1967 Jaguar E-type coupe in our driveway. Dave Stewart, a Portland SCMer who recently owned a 1934 MG-PA Airline coupe, is our partner in the car. We bought it from Andy Manganaro, another SCMer, who lives near Cincinnati, Ohio. My hunt for a good GTC/4 had bogged down: not one of the many cars offered had been driven on a regular basis. In the meantime, Manganaro sent a complete packet about his car, which highlighted its desirable attributes of having scored more than 99 points at a recent Jaguar concours, along with completing the New England 1000 without drama. Soon enough, we became owners, and I will share more details with you next month. In another change of plans, the Jaguar won't be sitting next to a blue 308 when it gets to Portland. For a variety of reasons, most centering around higher-than-expected renovation costs on what will be the new SCM offices, we decided not to consummate the deal on the Ferrari. Given an opportunity to rethink our needs, we've set our sights on a Boxster. This car is going to be a daily driver, and franldy, there's no better bargain today than this late-model Porsche. I'm told that a 2001 2.7-liter, non-S, in a good color (yes, blue would be best, but silver is awfully nice as well) with under 30,000 miles should be bought for around $25,000. If you've got an opinion on this, Boxster vs. 308, or, better yet, a Boxster in your inventory you'd like to send on its way to us, I can be reached at kmartin@sportscarmarket.com .• Sports Car Market But after a surprisingly few fits and starts, we were off on the fire road that rims by our cabin and leads to Trillium Lake. (My mount is a 1986 Yamaha 200-cc Big Wheel.) She practiced shifting up and down, then coming to a complete halt and starting again. As a father, you can imagine my sense of pride as I followed her, watching her gain confidence as she mastered her machine. Being a student of automotive history, I reflected on the coming generations of kids who will never experience the raw mechanical sensations that a simple piece of motorized equipment can provide. I'm not saying this is a terrible thing—after all, how many of us can shoe a horse or sow corn, skills that were critical less

Fax 503.253.2234, e-mail: youwrite@sportscarmarket.com I BOUGHT THAT EBAY ELAN Dear SCM: I bought the Lotus Elan profiled in the April issue on page 38, but the good news is that I didn't pay the $9,100 listed as the final price. I'm not just saying this to make myself feel better—it wasn't my eBay ID on the auction. I had e-mailed the owner (no, he was not "selling it for a friend," even though represented that way) several times during the auction. He realized that I was very interested in the car and I think he was shocked that I didn't bite, because he contacted me the night the auction ended, asking me if I was still interested. When I asked him about the person who had won the auction, he stated that the winner was "out of the country" and it would be "too much hassle to ship the car." Suspecting that the owner bid the car up himself (though I have no proof of this) from around $3,500 to just over $9,000, I told him I would think about it for a few days and call him I didn't call, on purpose, and he called me a few days later. I told him the price was too high and offered him a much lower amount. He said he would think about it, and a week later he called and said if I could pick it up by the end of the month I could have it for my offered price. So how much did I pay? Let's just say I was willing to spend more than $3,500, but certainly not $9,100. A friend of mine who has owned two Elans (his father owned a third) and I made the road trip to New York. The bottom line was that the seller had bought a Lamborghini Countach and needed the room in his airplane hangar. He also owned a Sunbeam Tiger, a Lotus Esprit and some sort of six-wheeled amphibious vehicle, in addition to an airplane. When we got there, we immediately felt that he could have done a better job describing the car, as he had photo albums show- 18  ing his body-off restoration of his other Lotus—he obviously knew what to look for. But we also felt that since Si s needing restoration don't pop up every day, it was worth the risk. So how accurate was his description? The body is fully intact and appears to be undamaged with the exception of a crack in the fiberglass at the trunk (which he told me about) and small chips out of the front driver wheel well lip (which he didn't tell me about). The paint is in bad shape, and hasn't been cared for in many years, but it hasn't been worn through the primer at any point. The car did roll freely and nothing appeared to be locked seats). The fuel tank is rusted and will need replacing. Can you get one like this for $25k? up. We could shift the transmission through all of the gears (of course the engine wasn't running). We have since taken the head off and my friend was quite surprised at how clean the engine was. There doesn't appear to be any excessive wear or damage, which leads us to believe the stated mileage is true. So, what is it going to cost me to restore this beast? I don't know yet, but I don't think it will be anywhere as near as high as the author of the article stated. Of course, I will be doing much of the work myself, with the help of some good friends. I will completely restore the rolling chassis myself, including sandblasting, painting, etc. I am considering having a friend who owns a paint shop repair and paint the body for me. (The only hesitation I have is that he will be doing it in his spare time, which may equate to years.) Carpet and door panels will have to be bought, though I already own two used seats I bought for $125 plus shipping. There is an instrument restoration shop in town (not cheap but very good). I have a full wood shop and will restore the dash myself and will probably make a new rim for the steering wheel. I will have the engine completely cleaned and any necessary machining done, and then I will do the rest of the overhaul myself. Lastly is the search for the many hard-to-find bits and pieces (cracked reflector lenses, door panels, etc.). The body is now off the frame, which appears to be in good shape. It is straight and doesn't appear to have any stress cracks (although we haven't fully cleaned it yet). Overall the car is very complete but many parts show their age. So now for the bad news. Yes, the car obviously needs to be bead blasted, primed and painted. The upholstery and carpet are shot from sitting outside for years. The seat frames are shot, with the lower frames completely rusted out. The iron support structure under the door sills is rusted (probably from the same water that sat in the car and rusted the SPORTS CAR MARKET EDITOR & PUBLISH!

tainly, I've had more than my own share of projects, and even owned a restoration shop in 1990-1992 (perfect timing, right?). What we are saying is that restoring a car always takes longer, and costs more, than you expect. Just like restoring a house, or sailboat, or getting a racehorse ready for a season. You are restoring your Elan for the pleasure the process will bring you, and we wish you many happy hours of fiberglass sanding—ED. I OWN AN ELAN TOO Dear SCM: I was very entertained by the article on the '64 Elan. All true and painfully so. In 1992 I bought a '71 Elan S4 Roadster with 35,000 miles from the original owner for $8,000. Although it had been in a garage for some time, at least it was complete, had papers, most of its paint, and no fiberglass modifications. In addition, it ran well despite oil consumption of a quart every 250 miles. This was one of four Lotuses I have owned, so I have tools, parts, manuals, a garage, and experience. It took me about four years to redo it, including a $3,500 engine rebuild of nine months that was no inconvenience because the $4,000 paint job took a year. Then on the first long drive when I switched on the lights, a paint-induced short in the trunk harness caused the entire non-fused original wiring harness to melt from dash to tail. That slowed me down for another six months or so, which was okay because I was looking for $4,000 worth of other little bits, like the pot-metal innards of the door handles. After getting it all running again, I took it to a garden party where the host's neighbor promptly backed her Ford van over the nose of the Elan. The crunch reverberated through the block and every guy at the party winced! Fortunately the painter still had some of the same blend and fixed it in a week. Anyway, the end result is a very quick car, delightful to drive, without reliable headlamps, and a soft top still waiting to be installed (since carrying it home from England in 1995). The electronic ignition causes the tach not to work, and the fix for that costs more than the ignition system! The headers block access to the starter and cause the clutch fluid to boil. The fix for that means the engine would have to come out for the fifth time. The doors don't fit... All told, I've spent over $25,000, plus countless hours of time to have a car worth (I hope—it's your number) $18,000. I've driven it almost 6,000 miles. Luckily, during this process there were both a '91 Elan and a '93 Caterham in the garage that were always running, and seven or eight other cars to drive too.—Mike Roeder, San Diego, CA RAQUEL'S RIDE Dear SCM: I was amazed when I read the Mecum auction report in your February 2004 issue, and saw our long lost, but never forgotten, Ferrari 275 GTS, SIN 07359 (sold at $124,950). To set the record straight, Raquel Welch did own this car as claimed, as it was registered to Patrick and Raquel Curtis, Curtis being her married name at the time. It has changed very little since we owned it. The color is original, and from the description, it looks like it could use some TLC. I purchased the car for $8,000 in Rome during the later part of 1968, and drove it while we were AMERICA by WI We decided to let the SCM Fiat ride out the winter in the garage, while using the down time last month to plot potential routes and accumulate volunteers. This is just a sampling of the e-mails and calls we've received from over 30 SCMers eager to enjoy the pleasures of fine vintage Italian motoring. Thanks to all of you, and our apologies that we cannot stain each and every one of your driveways. (And yes, the car should be starting off on its journey about the time you read this.) Further volunteers may contact me at copyed@sportscarmarket.corn.—Jeff Sabatini My collection now includes several British cars and a couple of Ferraris, but growing up in Pakistan in the late '60s and early '70s, we drove Fiat 600s, Fiat 850 Coupes, and 1100s, until the small cars from Japan came over. The 2100 was a "large" car and my uncle owned one. I would be willing to drive it on one of the legs and if Keith would like to sell it I would consider buying it. (I better have my head examined!)—Najeeb Khan, South Bend, IN I finally opened up the latest issue in my special reading room and saw the request for subscribers who might be silly enough to drive the blue beast westward. Well, I love to drive and could get that not-solittle gem to at least Des Moines, IA. I've got a couple of teenagers to pick from for company. My wife would be relieved with some peace and quiet for a couple of days.—Fred Panici, Chicago, IL I am certified crazy when it comes to cars, so of course I would June 2004  love to drive. If this charming little beater gets anywhere near Atlanta, I will take it somewhere for you. Pick a place, but not so far I can't get a bus or hitchhike back home in a day or so when it breaks down.— Bill Vatter, Atlanta, GA The first car I ever owned I bought in 1962. It was a 1958 Fiat 1100 four-door with four on the tree (it was a joint ownership proposition with my twin sister). The day I got it home, in an ominous omen, it broke in the garage. From that time on, until it was sold when we went to college in 1964, it constantly amazed us with the variety of items that could go wrong. I had to push start it to drive to my high school graduation. (Actually my sister and her friend pushed while I drove, as neither of them knew how to "pop the clutch.") In any event, I do have a soft spot (probably in my head) for Fiats and would be interested in participating in the America By Fiat.— Pete Marcus, Orlando, FL I've been a Fiat fan a long time; my sickness was confirmed when my Dad bought a new 131 Supermirafiori in 1978. I learned to drive in that car and have driven Fiats daily since. My garage currently houses a beautiful '64 1500 cabriolet (original paint), a '68 850 Spider and a Lancia Fulvia, all in great working condition. I would love to drive the 2100.—Stephan Protzen, Albuquerque, NM Why would I be willing to drive a 44-year-old Fiat from Chicago to St. Paul, MN? Well, I have never driven a Fiat. Reason enough.— George Arthur, President, Jaguar Club of Minnesota• 19 Splashg Adwdare-Thrinerenieldlog Good NO All this and a 275 GTS too. living there. Raquel was contracted by 20th Century Fox to star in the action adventure film Fathom, in the south of Spain. I negotiated with Fox to have them ship the car to Malaga for use in the film. The only slight damage the car received while we owned it was when Raquel tried to reverse turn in a very narrow street in Almeria, Spain, and hit the right front fender against a clay plumbing pipe. Nasty business, as I recall—I was sitting in the passenger seat!

In 1970, it was shipped to Beverly Hills, and we drove it there until it was sold to our friend, actor Sam Chew, for $12,000. Boy, did I think I made a great deal! As I recall, he drove it for several years, and sold it for a slight profit. Over the years, we have kicked each other, as we saw the Ferrari 275 GTS values double and triple again and again. I find it very interesting that Raquel's name is still attached to the car after all these years. I do have a photo of her with the Ferrari, and if the new owner is interested, I'll find it in a box somewhere and gladly send it to him. He might also want to pick up a video or DVD of Fathom, as the Ferrari is featured in several scenes. —Patrick Curtis, La Quinta, CA NOT A 924 TRACTOR Dear SCM: I love your maga- zine and look forward to every issue. But you slipped up with your report on the Porsche 924 sold at Kruse Ft. Lauderdale in the April issue (page 70). You refer to the "horrible tractor motor" in the 924, and while this is usually true, this car is listed as a 1987 924S. That means this car, in fact, has the cast-aluminum 2.5-liter engine found in all 944s. It also weighs less than a normal 944 and, as such, is quite a performance bargain for track days. I have a much-modified 944 Turbo, and while I quietly resent the fact that I have far more money in the car than it will ever return, I enjoy the ability to humble a great many "supercars." With some tweaks, the 944 Turbo is demonfast and one of the best handling cars on the road, plus it can be driven daily with two people and their luggage. If you are light with your right foot, it even gets good mileage. It is a pity that the market does not recognize it for the performance bargain it is.—Arnie Anderson, via e-mail You are right in both regards. The 924S has the lovely, Porschebuilt 944 engine and the 944 Turbo is a wonderful track car Sadly, there are not nearly enough buyers out there interested in racing 924 and 944 cars to make a dent in the used-car market for these models. But both in power and handling, these are world-class machines.— Jim Schrager A NICE APPRAISAL Dear SCM: I just got the April issue and 1 immediately turned to the article on how to become an appraiser. 1 don't think it could have been written any better. I have been a business appraiser for 10 years and thought the article covered the issues well and did not shy away from the accreditation question. Your magazine continues to impress me because it covers a broad spectrum of cars and related issues while professionally addressing tough questions. In our world of trying to be all things to all people, it is refreshing to see a publication that prints articles that comment on the pluses and minuses of a vehicle and also prints articles that express an experienced opinion on related issues. In the long run, a kid growing up in San Jose, CA. (I now live in New York.) I've had a Maserati Merak SS, Triumph TR4A, many MGBs, an XK15OS and currently a 1967 Alfa Duetto. But I never should have sold my 1964 E-type roadster. I miss it. I will own an E-type again; I'm sure of that. While material things are not that important at this point in my life, sitting in an E-type cockpit is the next best thing to heaven. Really!—Leon Todaro, via e-mail RAW DEAL Dear SCM: I noted that on page 46 of the April issue, our esteemed Editor took it upon himself to offer unsolicited legal advice by suggesting that one of our readers simply agree to a seller's unreasonable demands and then just do whatever he wants after acquiring the car. While that may be good enough to get the deal done, it could also leave the buyer liable for claims of breach of contract, misrepresentation and fraud, and the potential for punitive damages many times the value of the car. As entertaining as these comments are, I trust that our Editor doesn't think that I taught him that!—John Portland, OR Draneas, Misidentified and underappreciated. I believe that this will benefit the reader.—Bruce A. Johnson, ASA, via e-mail BUY THAT JAG Dear SCM: Concerning your next purchase, get an E-type Jaguar coupe for sure. Peter Egan recently commented on his coupe after a three-year restoration in the March 2004 issue of Road and Track. He wrote, "They are only manufactured objects, but their like will never be seen again. They do things for us that could only come from the good intentions of the people who designed and built them. They are repositories of accumulated wisdom and human brightness, from an especially nice era of design. If Sir William Lyons were still alive, I'd write him a letter and say, 'Nice work." I'm 50 years old and have just loved all kinds of cars since I was Perhaps, in the future, 1 should temper my opinions with the disclaimer, "Legal Analyst John Draneas had nothing to do with this statement!

Affordable Classic 1971-1975 Volkswagen Super Beetle Any Beetle of yore is more closely related to a lawn tractor than it is to the modern auto with which it shares a name and silhouette I t hardly seems believable that by 1971 the Volkswagen Beetle—the success story of the 1960s—was losing favor with the public. In earlier years the Beetle's quaint simplicity had been a plus, but those same qualities were beginning to seem as hopelessly outdated as the , car's underpinnings and mechanicals. F.., To complicate matters, after years of mostly ignoring VW's pest, domestic manufacturers started to fight back with new cars that were good enough to steal market share from the "people's car." Rather than totally redo the Beetle, VW introduced the Super Beetle, the first car to officially carry the "Beetle" moniker. Sold alongside the standard Beetle, the new Super Beetle coupe was a slightly larger package all around, including a three-inch longer wheelbase. To compensate for the Super's additional 155 pounds, engine output was increased to a blistering 60 horsepower, from the 1970 Beetle's 57. But manufacturing economies dictated that this engine also be used in the standard model in 1971, meaning the Super carried no power advantage. Changes for 1974 applied to all Beetles, and were mostly unique to the North American market, such as telescoping bumper supports, slightly beefier bumpers, and the infamous federally mandated seat belt interlock and bu77er system. the steak, though '75 did see fuel injection added to all Bugs, upping horsepower to 48. A generation later, time has healed all wounds in the Super versus torsion bar Beetle dispute. Indeed, any Beetle of yore is more closely related to a lawn tractor than it is to any of today's cars, including the one with which it shares a name and silhouette. The original Beetle remains a timeless classic, with Super Beetles lagging farther down the collectible food chain. But the Super Beetle is inexpensive to buy, drive, maintain, and restore. The standard Beetle sedan soldiered on in the U.S. through 1977, though as it turns out, the Super Beetle did get the last laugh, as all Beetle convertibles from 1973 on through the end in 1979 used the Super Beetle structure. The big technical news was a McPherson strut front suspension in lieu of horizontally stacked transverse torsion bars. Not only did this provide a smoother ride (albeit with an increased turning radius), but now the forward compartment could actually swallow more than a purse, as its volume almost doubled. Still, the only way you could put a set of golf clubs in the "trunk" was with a Sawzall. With competition from such automotive heavyweights as the Chevy Vega, Ford Pinto, and AMC Gremlin, even these slight improvements to the standard Beetle were enough to make the car a success. It sold in respectable enough quantities that changes for 1972 were minimal. Both Beetle models were given a new steering wheel, column-mounted light switch lever, inertia wheel three-point seat belts, a hinged rear parcel shelf, and a larger rear window. The adjustment in SAE horsepower ratings meant that last year's 1585-cc flat four now yielded an advertised 46 net horsepower, which must have made the ad agency's job a little tougher: "Now with 14 less horsepower than the year before" is not exactly a catchy slogan. For 1973, the two models began to diverge a bit more. The Super Beetle received a larger curved glass windshield, with a correspondingly shorter trunk lid, making it easier to distinguish between the two Bugs. With the added interior space came a new dashboard. 22  From day one, purists would have nothing to do with the Super Beetle, decrying the styling as bulbous and calling it "the pregnant Beetle," which later gave way to "the fish bowl" when the panoramic windshield debuted. In a manner that would have made the late, great Henry Ford proud, they insisted that a proper VW could only have a transverse front suspension. In 1975, this argument was rendered as dead as old Henry when an even greater blasphemy occurred: Volkswagen introduced its new watercooled, front-wheel-drive Rabbit, rendering all Beetles antiquities. Even worse, the recent Arab oil embargo had shown the public that the Beetle was less of an economy car than everyone had been led to believe. With Honda Civics then getting over 30 miles per gallon in the city cycle, the contemporary Beetle was hard pressed to get 25 mpg on the open road, or anywhere else. Americans were increasingly turning to more modern cars, rightly desiring better mileage and more room, and figuring crumple zones might not be bad things either. Volkswagen had made good use of limited edition color and trim specials in 1973 and 1974, with packages like Sports Bug, Sun Bug, and, of course, Love Bug. Following in these footsteps came 1975's "La Grande Bug," the new name for the final Super Beetle model. Yes, by now the sizzle was getting almost indistinguishable from Fewer "enthusiasts" purchased Supers when new, meaning most of these bigger Bugs were used like the appliances of their era—disposed of rather than repaired when in need of major work. Consequently, fewer have survived intact than standard Beetles, making them somewhat harder to find. The upside here is that the dune buggy/kit car/tuner crowd have had little interest in Supers (apart from their drivetrains) so few lost their sheetmetal virginity for cut-down fenders and zoomie exhaust pipes.

Legal Files / John Draneas Buying Yourself a Place in Line $20k for someone's place in line? Let's just hope the seller is legally able to transfer his place on "the list" long-awaited phone call came in the other day from my friends at Park Place, Ltd., a dealer in Seattle. After three years on the waiting list for a Lotus Elise, it was time to make option choices. I have a written agreement with the dealer stating that I am number 11 on its sales priority list, I get to purchase the car at MSRP, I can choose the options, and if I want to, I can sell these rights to buy the car and keep whatever money the buyer pays me. A Barring some unforeseen circumstance, this summer I expect to take delivery of my Arctic Silver Elise, equipped with both the sport and touring options, for a total price of $45,200. I'm an owner, not a speculator. Still, out of curiosity, I've been tracking the market for U.S.-bound Elises on the Internet for some time now. (What else do you do while waiting for a car you put a deposit on?) What I've seen makes me confident we can anticipate a lot of litigation over the initial sales of the Elise. FRESH MEAT As for any new "flavor-of-the-month" car that's in limited supply, the market for Elises is rife with speculators. But rather than going through the hassle of buying the cars to flip them, many of these people are simply selling their "rights to buy" on eBay. Presumably, these sellers have placed deposits on cars and have agreements with Lotus dealers. But as you might guess, this practice can be fraught with complications that sour a deal very quickly. The hands-down, top price I've seen paid for someone's place in line for an Elise was $20,007, through an eBay auction. The listing clearly stated that all that the buyer was getting was the seller 's right to buy the car when it arrived, but an astounding premium like this makes you wonder if the buyer is mistaken in thinking an engine and wheels are part of the deal. THANK YOU SIR, MAY I HAVE ANOTHER? If you decide to play this "order and flip" game with an Elise or any other flavor-ofthe-month car, there are a number of things to consider. First, what you are really buying in any of these "right to buy" deals is the seller's position in a contract. Your rights are only as good as the seller's legal rights, which are determined solely from his contract with the dealer. (Remember, dealers are independent operators and the Lotus factory has nothing 24  to do with any sales contract.) Furthermore, there is no such thing as a "standard contract" for waiting list sales. So it's crucial to find out exactly what the seller's legal rights are before you buy them. Be sure the price you are paying for the car is clearly spelled out. One thing to watch out for is ADP (Additional Dealer Profit). Not all dealers do it, but the only legal recourse you have to keep the dealer from tacking on something to the MSRP is a written contract. Depending on the agreement with the dealer, some sellers may not even be able to transfer their place on "the list." If it doesn't say you can do that in the contract, you may well be out of luck. Think about it: Why would a dealer want to transfer the right to buy if he didn't have to? If you were willing to pay a premium to buy the car, how hard do you think it would be for the dealer to find someone else willing to pay the same premium to him? Why should he let the seller pocket the extra cash? Then there's the issue of when you get your car. That, of course, depends on the delivery schedule between Lotus and the dealer, the seller's place in line, and the dealer's waiting list system. Comments on www.elisetalk.com indicate that one dealer's approach to allocating cars is that the first 10 he receives will be sold at a "market-will-bear" price, and the next 10 will go to the people on the waiting list who are willing to pay more than MSRR So if you're first on the list but want to buy at MSRP, you're really 21st. If Lotus is shipping cars to dealers at a rate of two or three per month, don't expect to see your Elise until 2005. Before you pay someone real money to take their place in line, find out exactly what their rights are by checking with the dealer. I'm afraid that many buyers will be unhappy to learn that the seller's rights weren't nearly as broad as first thought. ANOTHER CONTRACT If everything checks out, you should have a well-crafted, written contract drawn up that describes exactly what contractual tights you are to receive for your money, and provides for appropriate legal recourse if the promised rights don't materialize. This contract with the seller is in addition to the contract the seller has with the dealer If the seller's position is not transferable, it is possible to agree that the seller will take delivery and then resell the car to you, but this can become an even more complicated proposition. Whose money is going to buy the car from the dealer? If it's the seller's, what can he do if you don't follow through and buy the car from him? If you're putting up the cash, what assurance do you have that the seller actually buys the car? If you're not the original purchaser of the car, will it matter for warranty or financing purposes? All of these matters are difficult to cover adequately in a contract, and it really doesn't seem possible to do so without a good lawyer. This is not the place to skimp on legal advice. Of course, if you're the patient kind and don't need to be first on the block, you could simply wait until Elise mania has passed, and then get your car, at sticker or less, from the dealer of your choice.

Collecting Thoughts A Doppelganger Discredited world, relatively minor disputes over correct engine numbers and the use of NOS versus reproduction parts are common. W ith any collectible there is always an issue of authenticity, whether art, antiquities, baseball cards or automobiles. In the collector car Every once in a while, however, we come across a case of identity theft, in which a replica hijacks a genuine collector car's chassis number. I described the process in general terms in "The Fake and The Fall Guy" (SCM December 2003), but what follows is the outline of a real case, in which two cars have both claimed to be the same original Jaguar C-type. Each owner is maintaining his own conflicting version of the car's history—it will become clear which one I represent. The story begins in October 1952 at Jaguar's factory in Coventry, England. A "customer" (as opposed to factory team racing) C-type sports racing car, chassis number XKC 023, engine number E-1023-8, was shipped to Portland, OR, for delivery to its first owner, Joe Henderson. The car's subsequent racing career was confined to the West Coast, where its closest brush with fame came from its second owner, Jack Douglas. Douglas was a comedy writer for Bob Hope, among others, and he was friendly with Mitzi Gaynor, the star of South Pacific and other Hollywood films The photo of the two shown on this page was almost certainly taken before the sports car race at Torrey Pines, CA, on July 10, 1955. If so, Douglas' pudding basin helmet is significant, because he rolled XKC 023 in the race, and lived to tell the tale. Douglas had the car repaired, and sold it to another California racer named Ces Critchlow. After a few successful races, Critchlow rolled the C-type again, this time at the Paramount Ranch Races on November 18, 1956. Sometime after the crash, XKC 023 suffered the indignity of having its twice-damaged alloy body removed. It was replaced by an ill-fitting fiberglass Devin body at Horvath Motors in Once completely dismantled, XKC 023 was brought back to life. Costa Mesa, CA, where Critchlow worked. He was soon drafted into the U.S. Army, and the car spent two years in a corner of the workshop, with the remains of its original body sold off. The C-type soon slipped quietly into that murky state of unloved afterlife that often befalls retired racing cars. MISSING, PRESUMED LOST In most Jaguar circles, XKC 023 was a mystery car—or as they say in wartime "missing, presumed lost"—which explains why more than one car emerged that claimed its identity. But I won't waste space here recounting the story of the imposter that had only the original cylinder head, nor of the "XKC 023" built around certain parts from the original discarded body. Both of these were sold recently for replica prices, and are no longer pretenders to the crown. I will concentrate instead on another would-be XKC 023, which is currently owned by a German industrialist who maintains that his car is the real one. In the late 1980s, this car, then owned by the Italian Jaguar enthusiast and motoring artist Francesco Scianna, was entered in the 1988 Mille Miglia and some similar European events. The car indeed appeared to be XKC 023 at the time, with that number stamped on the chassis on top of the front shock absorber tower, and the chassis and engine numbers stamped on a chassis plate affixed to the car. The car even carried temporary FIA papers, which enabled Scianna to enter it in the events. The car carried the registration mark "TGH 210," suggesting that Scianna's C-type was British registered. Had anyone searched the U.K. registration records between 1988 and 2002, however, they would have found that no vehicle was so registered because that registration mark had officially lapsed from disuse in 1983, when computerization of the U.K.'s vehicle records was completed. Scianna sold the car some time after 1988, and its next owners were Italian, each of whom presumably believed it was authentic. After all, the car had the benefit of papers issued by the Italian organization ASI (Automotoclub Storico Italiano), and ran again in the 1994 Mille Miglia, all of which reinforced its apparent identity as a genuine C-type. Miti Gaynor and Jack Douglas al Torrey Pines. 26 The car was offered for sale as )(KC 023 at the Essen Classic Car Show in the mid-1990s, when a prospective buyer who was suspicious of its origins sent some photographs of the car, including a copy of its 1950s-style British logbook, to C- The C-type after being rolled in November 1956.

As the collector car movement had gathered momentum in the 1980s, a number of British companies began building C-type replicas. Some were very good, some only approximate. None, however, were more faithful to the original in the materials used and millimeter-perfect measurements than those manufactured by Jaye, who also traded in replacement parts for the original cars. He confirmed that the . car offered at Essen was  type expert Peter Jaye in England. ,. r one of his replicas and expressed his view that its logbook was false. An inspection of the C-type was then commissioned by an Italian dealer who had the car for sale. Lynx Engineering, another manufacturer of replicas that is well known in England for their work on original C- and D-types, reported that the chassis was in fact built by Peter Jaye, and the body by RS Panels. At this point, it became widely publicized that "TGH 210" was not the genuine XKC 023. -4:- with us, and were willing to confirm the history of the car. McEniry worked on the car during Critchlow's ownership, and recalled that they welded up the spider gears in the differential to give the car more bite out of the corners. In late 1997, Schierenbeck consented to a visit from Larson and he caught his first sight of the scattered parts comprising XKC 023. Recounting the discovery, Larson said: "We're not talking a few little bits, we're talking about everything you need about the car's early racing history. After all of this, one might expect the story to end here—but it doesn't. BOB'S VERY OWN "C-TYPE" Around the same time, a European dealer acquired the Jaye replica. This dealer, "Bob," was intent on selling the car, so in his version of the truth, the "second car" discovered in California and restored by Larson was dismissed as looking "like a replica." Early in 2001, a prospective buyer was found, a German. Revealed under the weld: Positive proof of identity THE REAL 023 COMES BACK TO LIFE Back in the United States, Terry Larson, the Arizona-based expert, restorer and dealer in C- and D-types, was researching his book, The C-type Register. For some years he had been trying to trace what happened to the real XKC 023. He had heard about "TGH 210" from Peter Jaye, among others, but hadn't found out what happened to the original car. At least not until he was contacted by Tom Groskritz, another Jaguar racer and authority on C- and D-types, who happened to have snapped a shot of Ces Critchlow surveying his damaged C-type after the crash at Paramount Ranch back in 1956. Groskritz put Larson in touch with a man named Frank Schierenbeck who claimed to have the real XKC 023. Larson spoke with him on the phone, and the history of the missing Ctype was revealed. Indeed the car had spent most of the late 1950s hidden under a tarpaulin, until Schierenbeck liberated it in 1962 for $1,000 in cash and an overhaul of a Ford pickup. Schierenbeck owned an import service shop in Santa Ana, CA, and was well known for his work on Jaguars. Briggs Cunningham was one of his customers. Schierenbeck kept the car for 35 years, initially registering it for road use and entering it in local sprints in Southern California, on one occasion achieving a recorded speed of 165 mph. At a later point )(KC 023 was dismantled, and Schierenbeck moved to Oroville, a rather remote part of Northern California. The disassembled car went with him, but he never got around to putting it back together and hardly anyone knew that he still had it. Except for Groslcritz. Fortunately, not just Groskritz, but Critchlow and a mechanic named Mike McEniry are still June 2004  to drive down the road." Moreover, he found the original identification "XKC 023" stamped on the front crossmember, one of two places where chassis numbers had been originally stamped by the factory. ONCE HIDDEN, NOW REVEALED There were many other important parts, even the original footwells, and the transmission tunnel with its original "Harduras" trim intact. All were original to the car, with the exception of the missing body (which was later acquired and reunited with the car). Larson bought everything, and rebuilt the car for his (and my) client, Christian Jenny. When rebuilding the differential, the spider gears were found to have been welded up, as recounted by McEniry. The discovery and restoration of XKC 023 was well publicized, with articles published in Auto Week in April 1999, in Jaguar Journal in May/June 1998, and elsewhere. As a result, a number of other people contacted Larson to provide more information and photographs On investigation Larson also noticed that one of the mounts for Critchlow's Devin body had been welded over the spot on the shock absorber tower where the original chassis number should be stamped. This had remained untouched for 40 years, so when they cut the weld and folded back the body mount, the process was meticulously recorded on film. What appeared was the number "XKC 023," as stamped by the factory, final proof indeed that this was the original chassis. Clearly, these were the parts of a complete car: the original chassis, the original engine block stamped E-1023-8, and the original gearbox and rear axle with the correct numbers. The German made contact with Christian Jenny, and asked his views about the situation. Not unnaturally, Jenny explained the provenance of his C-type. In various phone and e-mail communications, he provided evidence that he owned the genuine XKC 023, and warned the German in clear terms against buying the car. Nonetheless, the German did so in 2002, paying a reported €125,000 (roughly $125,000 at the time), a mere fraction of the value of a genuine C-type, which would normally have sold then for between $750,000 and $900,000. Once he had bought the Jaye replica, the German wasted little time in his efforts to establish its claim as the genuine XKC 023. He submitted an entry for the 2003 Milk Miglia, which, amazingly enough, was accepted. In March 2003 he applied to the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust in Coventry (JDHT) for a Heritage Certificate under chassis number XKC 023, which to their subsequent regret they issued. However the JDHT certificate was endorsed with the words: "Please note that we do not believe this car was ever registered in the U.K." The German then applied to the British registration authorities to have TGH 210 reactivated. The British system allows owners of vehicles whose numbers lapsed through disuse in 1983 to reclaim them, if they can provide documentary evidence to show a clear link between the car and the number being claimed. A new registration document for TGH 210 was issued to the German at a British address in May 2003, quoting chassis number XKC 023, engine number E1023, and a date of first registration of April 28, 1956. Clearly the documents that were submitted in support of the application had shown this information, though certainly the endorsement on the JDHT certificate about the car never having been registered in the U.K. should have precluded the reissue of the number. The next move was to apply for a FIVA Identity Card, to open the way for TGH 210 to participate in the major European road events. When the German submitted his application to the German FIVA authority, he submitted various documents to support his claim, including copies of the old British logbook that came with the car and the JDHT Heritage Certificate. But when submitted to FIVA, that certificate was missing its endorsement, which noted that 27

The papers landed on the desk of Jim Whyman, secretary of the Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs, who was able to call on various experts to investigate the history of TGH 210. The key question was obvious: If the car was the genuine XKC 023, where had it been hiding for the previous thirty-odd years, before turning up in Italy? it was believed that the car had never been registered in the U.K. Remember the famous saying that there are no problems, only solutions? The solution to the troublesome endorsement was simple—it had been removed. In Scotland, according to the German's papers. After its inversion at Torrey Pines in July 1955, XKC 023 was said to have been shipped back to the U.K.—not, as would have been logical, for repair by Jaguar Cars Limited, but by its supposed new Scottish owner, John Scott Dykes. He is said to have repaired the damaged C-type in his repair shop in Kilmacolm, a small town in Renfrewshire, due west of Glasgow, and then to have registered the car for the public road. After a series of further Scottish owners, the car was supposedly acquired in 1969 by Francesco Scianna, then living in Newbury, Berkshire, England. As part of his research, Jim Whyman sent an e-mail to Scianna seeking confirmation of all this, but never received a reply. However, Scianna did write to the German maintaining his position that the car he had owned was the real XKC 023. A BADLY FORGED LOGBOOK The only supporting paperwork for this alleged Scottish history is a 1950s-style log book, which has been used by successive owners over the years in attempts to prove that the car is authentic. Peter Jaye saw a copy, as did Lynx, 28 Terry Larson, and a number of others. No one that we are aware of, except its various owners, has seen the original of this logbook, so a photocopy of it is pictured here. Jim Whyman conclusively proved that this logbook is a forgery. His research, with assistance from Jaguar's chassis book for 1955, showed that the car for which the logbook was originally issued was an XK140 fixed-head coupe, supplied new on April 28, 1955 to John Scott Dykes of Greystones, Kilmacolm, Scotland. The original logbook was issued by the County Council of Renfrewshire on the first registration of a new vehicle In its original form, the logbook would have identified the make, model, chassis and engine numbers, color and registration mark of that new vehicle, its first and subsequent owners, and their payments of the British road tax, recorded on each occasion by a circular date stamp. But this log-book appears to have been doctored, with the details of the original vehicle and its registration mark erased and the identity of XKC 023 and TGH 210 inserted by an inexpert hand.

TOWARDS RESOLUTION It's obvious that the German did not forge the British logbook—that was done many years ago, and he merely acquired the logbook along with the car. We might also hope that he would surrender the JDHT Heritage Certificate, and remove the improper "023" stampings from the chassis and engine, to prevent any future buyer from being deceived as to its provenance. So, where do we go from here? Christian Jenny, owner of "the real" XKC 023, has made a formal offer that the two cars claiming the same chassis number be examined at a neutral location by independent experts, to which we have not received a response. Of course, our hope is that this inspection would cause the German to stop claiming that his car is XK.0 023, and to surrender the logbook to the British registration authorities as and when they revoke the TGH 210 registration for his car.

SCM Picks Alcan Winter Rally F or sports car enthusiasts, the MiHe Miglia is the Holy Grail of events. For guys who think that 40 degrees below is balmy, and a four-wheel drift at 80 mph on a slick mountain road is just part of an everyday drive, the Alcan Winter Rally is where they'd like to be. Weather is your friend, and weather is your enemy on the Alcan. Two weeks before the 2004 Winter Rally, temperatures in the Yukon hit minus 54 degrees Fahrenheit, while Fairbanks, AK, hovered around minus 36. But by the time the Feb. 18 start date rolled around and 16 cars left suburban Seattle, WA, the jet stream had pushed into the northern reaches of British Columbia, driving the temperature up to 47 degrees in some areas. Bound for Anchorage, AK, the rally cars found themselves climbing out of minus 8 degree valleys onto hills that were nearly 40 degrees warmer. The effect was like walking into a ski lodge, as the windshield would fog, then ice over instantly. When that happens, you'd better be good at remembering where the road goes. For the 16 teams entered, that path would lead a snowy 5,000 miles north, taking them within 1,200 miles of the North Pole. The rally's route was divided into time-speed-distance sections of 10-30 miles, where drivers held exact speeds to arrive at checkpoints on time, and transits between the TSD stages, some as long as 500 miles. As if this wasn't enough, there were three ice races that counted in the final tally. Entries ranged from a late-1980s Mazda 323 GTX to new BMW X3s, and included nearly every model of Subaru, two Mitsubishi Lancer Evos, and a Florida-registered Audi S4 towing a two-wheeled trailer driven by the grandson of the Red Baron, Rene Baron von Richthofen. Fourteen of the 16 cars finished, though none without broken windshields. This was my fifth Arctic rally, though I hope it won't be my last. I'm already craving the intoxicating mixture of the loneliness of the open artic roads, the majesty of the scenery, the ruthlessness of the weather and terrain, and the camaraderie of the other similarly afflicted souls who participated.—Paul Duchene A special 20th-anniversary running offerly Hines'A/can 5000 for "vintage" vehicles and motorcycles will be held August 18-26, with a June 18 deadline for entries.

Powerful, limited-production GT's supplanted the great cars from Bentley, Rolls-Royce, Mercedes-Benz, and the grandes routieres of France, which had ruled European highways in the 1930s. GTs became the cars of choice for royalty, celebrities and successful industrialists. Combining powerful engines and competent chassis, they were equipped to the highest standards and trimmed with the finest materials. Ferrari's gran tursimo was the Superamerica, which later gave way to the 500 Superfast. T Featuring Pininfarina coachwork, the Superfast was equally impressive in style, speed and grace. Thin, almost delicate pillars set off a large and airy cockpit, while the steeply raked backlight blended smoothly into the gently sloping rear deck. A subtly truncated tail balances the traditional oval Ferrari air intake. Fine leather and wood trim coddle the driver, whose space is perfectly arranged for comfort and high-speed motoring. The 500 Superfast offered here is one of 12 second-series examples built. Fitted with many of the available options, this example has circular Carello lights, air conditioning, power windows, radio, and three-panel side vents. Its powerful engine and Marelli transistorized electrical system handle the powered options quite well. The car was originally ordered by Joseph Bettendorf of Miami, FL. Originally delivered in Azzurro Italver (silver-blue) with beige interior, S/N 8739 was repainted red during the 1970s. It shows a nice patina and honesty that comes with cars having few owners. It is ready to be driven or shown proudly at the most exclusive events. The SCM analysis: This car sold for $264,000 at RM's Phoenix auction, January 23, 2004. At RM Monterey in August 2003, we saw it bid to $270,000 without selling. Forgive me if you've heard this story before, but it's particularly applicable. A while back, a representative from Bell Helicopters was soliciting a wealthy Texan, hoping to sell him one of its helicopters. The salesman told him it would be the perfect solution to the long commute from his West Texas ranch to his Houston office, some 200 miles away. He said he'd take a look, and to bring the helicopter by the ranch. After inspecting the aircraft, the Texan told the salesman that they needed to go to Houston to further the discussion. As the 'copter whirled into the air, blowing 1967 Ferrari 500 Superfast Lot #151A, S/N 6041 Condition: 2 Sold at $297,000 RM Auctions ; Santo Monica, CA ; 5/25/2002 SCM ID #28491 1965 Ferrari 500 Superfast Lot #100, S/N 8083GT Condition: 1 Sold at $335,500 RM Auctions; Phoenix, AZ ; 1/18/2002 SCA1 ID #27052 clouds of dust and scaring the livestock, the Texan walked to his garage, hopped in his 500 Superfast and headed east. You might imagine the look on the salesman's face when he arrived in Houston and the Texan was already there to greet him. Indeed, the 500 Superfast was a special car for special people. Ferrari's equivalent of Bugatti's Royale, it was an ultra-high-end car, built in small numbers for an exclusive clientele. Prince Aga Kahn, Prince Bernard and Peter Sellers all bought new Superfasts, as did racers John von Neumann and Col. Ronnie Hoare. Peter Livanos, who would later own Aston Martin, was a Superfast owner, and the Shah of Iran was so impressed with his 500 Superfast that he bought a second one. At $29,500 (or $171,000 in 2002 dollars), nearly twice the cost of an alloy-bodied, six-carb 275 GTB, the Superfast was staggeringly expensive. Just 37 cars were produced, 25 series-one models and 12 seriestwos. There were only small differences between the two versions, with the latter cars featuring five-speed transmissions rather than overdrive

Page 35

four-speeds, and suspended rather than floor-mounted pedals. Cosmetically the cars are identical except for an eight-panel front fender vent on the SI and a more attractive three-panel vent on the SIL Both versions used an exclusive Lampredi-inspired "long block," with removable cylinder heads like the Columbo-designed engines. At a rated 400 horsepower the 500 Superfast has a full 120-hp advantage over its 275 GTB sibling. Perhaps more importantly, the 5-liter's 350 lb-ft of torque dwarfs the 188 lb-ft of the 3.3-liter The big engine 4s smooth and predictable, with wheel-lifting power limited by the smallish tire profile. The chassis, suited more to touring than competition use, is well engineered for its task. Top speed is claimed at 174 mph, though the Superfast is as comfortable in city driving as it is at speed. Many peg it as the best multi-use car of its time. So was this a fair price? The South Florida dealer/collector who purchased it was quite pleased and he probably knows more about 500 Superfast values than anyone. He has a second Superfast that he owned for years and recently sold another one in anticipation of this purchase. A collector of low-mileage, late-serial-number cars, this second-from-the-last Superfast, sold by just the second owner really hit the buyer's hot button. S/N 8739 was no stranger to its new owner as he has been chasing this particular car since 1973, when he saw it at the old Bob Cressman Ferrari dealership in Ft. Lauderdale. Henry Desormeau beat him to the billfold back in '73, paying $11,000 for the car but a second chance came with the Desormeau estate's consignment. Now the buyer proudly displays his trophy near his desk.—Steve Ahlgrim (Historical and descriptive information courtesy of the auction company)• America's Oldest Ferrari Dealership

Sheehan Speaks Americans And Their Ferraris At a time when a 250 TR cost $3,000, Kirk F. White forever altered the Ferrari market by asking, and getting, $10,000 for one rom the earliest days of production, Americans have been eager buyers of the cars from Maranello. But over the years the profile of the buyer of both new and used Ferraris has changed. While pre-owned Ferraris were once the province of engineers who enjoyed their mechanical complexity, today they tend to go to mature collectors who value having a vintage V12 in their garage. New Ferraris used to be bought by the ultra-wealthy, often for use as a "gentleman's" racer. Today, Modena 360 Spyders and F50s are more often outrageous statements of success than they are motorcars—a 550 Barchetta is likely to spend more time parked in front of the L.A. Four Seasons than it is on the Willow Springs track. F THE BEGINNINGS Let's take a quick trip back through time. From the '50s through the early '70s, Ferraris were the weapon of choice for wealthy American gentlemen racers (often wealthy auto dealers) including John von Neumann, Jim KIRK WHITE AND THE MODERN MARKET The Ferrari market as we now know it dates to the early 1970s and Kirk F. White. At a time when a 250 TR could be had for $3,000, Kirk amazed and forever altered the market by declaring it to be a "thoroughbred, important racing car that is a part of history," and then asking for—and getting—$10,000 for it, much to everyone's amazement. Thanks largely to the marketing skills of White, the prices of used V12 Ferraris, especially exotic ones, took off in 1969 and have climbed, stumbled, and climbed again, to the current day. Low production made F50s instant collectibles. Hall, Gaston Andre, Loyal Katskee, Jim Kimberly, Bob Said and Howard Hively, driving 500 TRCs, 500 Mondials and the like. In addition to these guys there were the hardcore racers, including Luigi Chinetti, Phil Hill, Masten Gregory, Denise McCluggage and George Arents in the much quicker 860 Monzas, 290 MMs and 250 TRs. And we can't forget the low-buck racers such as Dan Gurney, Carroll Shelby, Pete Lovely and Dan Collins, too poor to buy the latest Ferraris but still driving them based on talent. In the same period, a second group of very rich Americans, including Bob Wilkie and Jan de Vroom, bought top-end coachbuilt Ferraris such as 410 Superamericas, as exclusive road cars. The very rich were an important part of Ferrari's and Chinetti's (the official U.S. importer at the time) market in the '50s and '60s, and helped to build the Ferrari image. These were the cars the huddled masses would see occasionally outside Sardi's, driving on the streets of East Hampton, or cruising in Beverly Hills. FLAUNT YOUR FAME Even more conspicuous were the American movie stars and producers including William Holden, Peter Helm, Norma Shearer, Tim Considine, Steve McQueen, "Dino" Martin and Clint Eastwood, who bought the more sporting GT Ferraris in the '50s, '60s and '70s, including cars such as the long and short-wheelbase California Spyders. Not to be forgotten are the car-crazy guys such as actor James Coburn and producer John Calley, who bought many dozens of used-but-streetable 250 TdFs, 250 SWBs, 250 GTOs and 250 LMs in Europe and imported them to the U.S. for both fun and profit. You might call this phase, "famous cars for famous people." Many of these cars, once they became used, were sold into Southern California's booming aerospace industry, to engineers who were intrigued by their mechanical sophistication and pedigree. Even today, there are dozen of early Ferraris lurking in garages in Southern California, known only to a few die-hard trainspotters, that likely won't be sold until their owners pass on to that great concours in the sky. For a time, the rise in prices was meteoric. For instance, a 275 GTB/4 started at a modest $75,000 in late 1985, doubled to $150,000 in late 1986, re-doubled to $300,000 in late 1987, redoubled again to $600,000 in late 1988, and peaked at $1.2 million in late 1989. Prices crashed when the global economy suffered a recession from 1990 to 1995. The market began to recover in 1995, finding an all-new group of "high-tech" buyers, the generation that followed the baby boomers. They were most attracted to the latest high-tech street cars like the 355 Fl and 360 Modena. Today's used Ferrari market is very different from the new Ferrari market. The older-model Ferrari buyer is just that, an older buyer. Daytonas, 275 GTBs and Lussos are sold to collectors over 40 who want to add a vintage Ferrari to their collection to accent the 360 already in the garage, while first-time buyers under 40 go first for the 355 or 360. Boxers and Daytonas are vintage cars to them. WHO'S BUYING WHAT TODAY To appease wealthy new collectors, whom some might accuse of having more money than taste, in the last decade Ferrari has done very well creating limited production "instant collectibles" such as the F50 in 1995, with only 56 examples sold new into the U.S. market (as opposed to 210 U.S.-model F40s), or the 550 Barchetta. By limiting worldwide production of all Ferraris to just over 4,000 cars a year—well under demand—Ferrari has guaranteed brand exclusivity and high prices for its new product. A new factor in the rising prices of pre-1974 Ferraris has been the increased popularity of "casual touring" events, including the Colorado Grand, California Mille and the New England 1000. A decent '60s V12 will get you into nearly every one of them. For those who like concours, the Cavallino Classic, Concorso Italiano and similar events give you a place to put your manicured beauty on display. Having a car on the lawn makes you a part of the "insider's club" of participants, with your little name tag marking you as one of the elite, not just the hoi polloi who shelled out $100 to come and visually kick tires. In my opinion, there's a wider split today than ever before with Ferrari collectors, and that's a good thing. Those looking for the latest techno-bauble can go for the Enzo or the 360 F1, while aficionados who desire a piece of history in the garage can go SWB shopping. The Ferrari tent has certainly grown larger over the years, but there's still plenty of room for everyone underneath it.•

English Car Profile 1975 Jensen Interceptor Mark III Convertible At a time when a Corvette cost just $8,000, convertible Interceptors were $25,000. It's no wonder Jensen Motors Ltd. bit the dust DATA Years produced: 1974-1976 Number produced: 491 Original list price: $25,000 SCM Price Guide: $17,000 - $22,000 Tune-up/major service: $450 Distributor cap: $12 Chassis #: driver's side windshield pillar Engine #: driver's side under rear a/c compressor bracket Club: Jensen Owners Club, do Keith Andrews, 2 Westgate, Fullshaw Park, Wilmslow, Cheshire, 5K9 100, U.K. Web site: www.joc.org.uk Alternatives: 1975-1996 Jaguar XJS convertible, 1986-1993 Cadillac Allante, 1993 M-B 300CE convertible SCM Investment Grade: C COMPS Chassis number: 2311/1620 n 1931 brothers Alan and Richard Jensen opened a coachwork factory in West Bromwich, U.K., which supplied many British car manufacturers. Four years later, they built the first Jensen on a Wolseley Hornet chassis. Edsel Ford was enthused at the car and authorized the sale of a Ford V8 for fitting in the "White Lady," as the car was known. I Jensen would continue to use American powerplants on through the Interceptor of 1966. The cabriolet version on offer here was one of the few built, fitted with a 7.2-liter V8 Chrysler motor. Despite the extraordinary quality of these automobiles, Jensen went bankrupt in 1976. This is a 1975 Mark III model equipped with its original Chrysler engine and a high-performance, three-speed Torqueflite automatic transmission. Restoration was completed in December 2003. The car is presented in bright red with a Connolly Havana leather interior, Reuters power seats, an electric top and air conditioning. The odometer reads 36,153 miles. This rare and elegant cabriolet should be considered a masterpiece, with its original Italian Vignale coachwork, its simple American mechanicals, and a measure of British savoir faire. The SCM analysis: This car sold for $30,771, including buyer's premium, at the Artcurial Briest Poulain Le Fur auction held in Paris on February 15, 2004. There have been many attempts to combine straightforward and reliable U.S. drivetrains with stylish European coachwork. Shelby Cobras achieved iconic status, but Panteras, Tigers, Isos, Bizzarinis, and Griffiths didn't fare as well. While American iron indeed offers great power, massive blocks are also a heavy impediment to building a true sports car. Perhaps realizing this, Jensen set out to build the Interceptor as a high-speed touring GT. The Interceptor saloon, with its signature curved-glass hatchback, was referred to as a "gentleman's express" by journalists of the period. It was a separate model altogether from the convertible, and designed for the affluent businessman who desired comfortable and reliable transportation during the week, but one with enough clout (and cargo capacity) for weekend jaunts to his favorite country club. Any of the three series of closed Interceptors accomplished this well, but at a cost. In 1975 an Interceptor with a Chrysler 383-ci V8 cost $16,000. The SP (six pack), with its three two-barrel Holley carburetors mounted on a 440-ci V8, and the FF (Ferguson Formula), the first car with all-wheeldrive and anti-lock brakes, were even more expensive. Convertibles were built between 1974-1976 in Series III form only, and at $25,000 their price 1975 Jensen Interceptor convertible Lot #1017, S/N 23101414 Condition: 3Sold at $21,730 Barrett-Jackson; Scottsdale, AZ; 1/20/2000 SCM ID# 14680 1975 Jensen Interceptor convertible Lot #SP051, S/N 23111618 Condition: 3+ Sold at 525,961 RM; Toronto, ON; 4/16/1999 SCM ID# 5764 was even more absurdly high, at a time when a Corvette cost just $8,000. It's no wonder Jensen Motors Ltd. bit the dust in May 1976, Arab oil embargo or not. Convertibles were built in limited numbers, totaling only 507 of the 6,407 Interceptors built. Every convertible carried the Chrysler 440, producing 220 hp at 4,700 rpm. This made performance brisk for its day, with 0-60 mph taking 7.6 seconds and the quarter-mile going by in 15.8, nearly equal to that of BMW's 3.0CSi. Top speed was 126 mph, certainly suitable for effortless Continental touring duty. However; at 4,000 pounds, it's a good thing that four-wheel Girling disc brakes were standard. The Interceptor had an aesthetically pleasing and ergonomic dash layout, referred to as the "Qvale" wood dash, after Kjell Qvale, the company's major shareholder In late 1974 this design was abandoned

Page 39

for a layout with the gauges grouped into a central binnacle, like in our subject car; and subtle changes were made to the anodized pot-metal headlight doors. Owning and caring for a Jensen isn't difficult. As expected, the drivetrain is a fairly simple affair with most everything readily available at the neighborhood NAPA store—although probably not cross-listed as Jensen parts. More esoteric stuff essentially everything not manufactured by Chrysler, is available through two US. supply houses dedicated to the marque. Dings and dents, on the other hand, are difficult to correct since access to the inner side of the body panels is limited. Therefore body repairs on Jensens tend to be poorly done and usually just exacerbate the original problem. The original paint was a cellulose-based lacquer, and as such, any respray that was not taken down to bare metal will not bond properly. If you're looking for an Interceptor; be wary of sagging front suspensions. Vertical links are known to wear if maintenance intervals were ignored The same is true to a lesser extent for the rear leaf springs. Check for rust along the edges of the doors, wheel arches and hood hinges. If the car was ever improperly put on a lift, a sheet metal flange underneath can open up, exposing the door side-members to the elements. Take the time to check each of the rocker switches on the dash, pref: erably simultaneously while the car is at a warm idle. British cars have never been known for the quality of their electrics, and Interceptors are no exception. The addition of halogen headlights and aftermarket stereos can tax the otherwise satisfactory 60-amp alternator. When new, this hand-built car was assembled to a high standard and displayed quality workmanship, so don't be swayed by a seller who insists that defects are part of the "Interceptor mystique." According to the VIN prefix, the car pictured here was originally exported to North America. While it appears to be in average driving condition, it worth noting that a recent respray, in "resale red," was not only not a factory color but also may be hiding further issues, as there was some rust evident. We see few Jensens cross the block and fewer actually sell. A #3 condition 1975 convertible sold for $21,730 at Barrett-Jackson in January 2000 and, surprisingly, a 1974 #2 was a no-sale at $54,000 in Australia last year—all the money in the world for an Interceptor Convertible Jensens are handsome and don't share any of the quirkiness of the saloon's styling, so they demand an even higher premium than open cars of other some marques. (By comparison, a 1976 coupe is currently advertised in our local Portland, OR, newspaper for just $8,000.) With a dearth of comparables to adequately judge the market, let's just say this car was fully priced for condition, and while it offers some unique visual panache coupled with easy horsepower; it isn't a marque or model that destined to be at the top of anyone's flavor-of-the-month club list any time soon.—David Slama (Historical and descriptive information courtesy of the auction company)• J.C.

1954 1900 Sprint This 1900 has been to more European auctions than most SCMers. But this time around, the seller really timed it right Years produced: 1951-1954 Number produced: approx. 965 Original list price: 55,800 SCM Price Guide: $45,000-560,000 Tune up/major service: 5400 Distributor cap: 512.65 Chassis #: firewall, right-side vertical portion Engine #: right front just below cylinder head Club: Alfa Romeo 1900 Register, Mariners, Courtland Avenue, Esher, Surrey KT10 9HZ, United Kingdom Alternatives: 1951-1954 Jaguar XK120 FHC, 1951-1958 Lancia Aurelio, 19501953 Aston Martin DB2 SCM Investment Grade: B COMPS Chassis number: AR1900001822 T he 1900 debuted with mechanical specifications worthy of the marque's history. Fitted with a double-overhead-cam four-cylinder engine, it was a modern car that was easy to maintain. It was the first Alfa Romeo to have unibody construction, and the cooling system was one of the best of the era. Despite its rigid rear axle, it had an efficient and well-guided suspension with excellent road-holding in all circumstances. The 1900 C Sprint (for corto, or short) was built on a shortened chassis with a 2,500-mm wheelbase, and fitted with a 100-hp version of Alfa's 1975-cc four-cylinder and a five-speed gearbox. Most of the 1900 C Sprints were bodied by Touring, but some cabriolets and coupes would also come from other coachbuilders. The car presented here is Touring coupe #01822, painted in the emblematic color for post-war Alfa Romeos, dark Bordeaux. It is an ideal mount for all historic competitions, from the Mille Miglia to the Tour Auto and the Carrera Panamericana. The SCM analysis: This car sold for $79,554, including buyer 's premium, at the Artcurial Briest Poulain Le Fur auction held in Paris on February 15, 2004. It was sold previously at Bonhams' Monte Carlo auction on May 23, 2003, bringing $54,959, and at the 2000 Brooks Geneva sale, where it made $62,121. It was also profiled in the October 2003 issue. By now, most SCMers know the 1900 drill backwards and forwards. But in case you're new to the fold, the 1900 was the product of the postWorld War II reorganization of Europe, designed by a new generation of engineers and stylists that knew their efforts needed to succeed if Alfa Romeo was to appeal to a broader base than it had with the 6C. As such, the 1900 marked the beginning of the high-volume production era at the venerable marque. Many of the lessons Alfa would learn in producing this series would pave the way to the successful launch of the classic post-war Alfa, the Bertone-designed Giulietta Sprint of 1954. Initial 1900 production began in 1951 at the Portello factory in Milan and at first the car was built only as a sedan. In time, the short version of the chassis was developed to support more sporting versions of the 1900. The chassis was certainly stiff enough for such applications and the twin-cam engine offered high specific power output on the low-octane fuel available at the time. Series-one and series-two Sprints were 'five-window" coupes, while the series-three cars were "threewindows," with wider, window-less C-pillars that made the cars look 1953 Alfa Romeo 1900 (Sprint GT Lot #76, S/N AR1900001505 Condition: 1Sold at $75,000 Christie's ; Pebble Beach, CA; 8/18/2002 SCM ID# 29050 1956 Alfa Romeo 1900 SS Lot #23 Condition: 2 Sold at 541,213 Bonhoms; Derbyshire, UK; 12/4/2002 SCAI ID #29691 like big Giuliettas. While 1900s were indeed a significant step towards mass production for Alfa, all three series of Sprints were still "made-toorder" and there's not a lot of commonality among specifications for any of the cars. The car pictured here is equipped with a later 2000-cc head and induction system, which includes side-draft carburetors instead of the proper twin-choke Solex downdraft units. If you're counting rivets, this is a minus, but if you're in want of a driver, it 's quite nice. The car does not have bumpers, which could have been the way it was built, but not likely. If those are the negatives, the positives are in its appearance. Finished in an attractive combination of Bordeaux with natural color hides and contrasting dark beading, this should be a very easy car to live with—or at least admire in the garage. Ah yes, the garage. This car has been spending a lot of time there,

racking up only 82 kilometers of use since first spotted at that auction four years ago—a demonstration of one of the reasons SCM asks its analysts to record odometer readings. Frankly, whether the mileage on a collectible car is "authentic" is something we don't strive to prove. Rather the simple difference in readings between each time we see a car tells a tale of its own. The lack of use for this car is a shame, really, as 1900s were capable performers for the era, solid and dependable cars that ask little of their drivers. Many serve well for collectors who enjoy vintage tours, especially high-profile ones like the Mille Miglia Storica, for which this car is eligible. Further when properly set up (and it really takes an Italian speed shop to get the suspension right), they handle well even while their excessive body lean makes them look something like a Buick Roadmaster that's been put on the Atkins diet. Despite this usability, prices have been stagnant. Perhaps the previous owners were speculators who simply got tired of seeing no appreciation in their investment and dumped the car. Clearly, owner number three timed the market, or at least the one in Paris in February, correctly. In its recent auction appearances this 1900 has seen more of Europe than most Let's Go-toting backpackers, so the only thing we can safely discern from its auction record is that the auction companies pocketing the commissions are quite fond of the car As far as the market at large is concerned, before we judge this last nearly $80k sale to be signs of a new pricing trend, it's worth noting that adjusting for the French auction's 15-percent commission means the "huge profit" this last seller reaped is smaller than it initially appears, about five grand, give or take. Even so, it sure beats the nearly $10k loss the other owner took. That said, I'd still be willing to call this sale a positive trend for the wallflower 1900. This is a car that really deserves to "come into its own" and realize higher prices. If this car is truly as represented, with solid mechanicals (a question unto itself given the number of times it has changed hands), this may be all the money (plus about $20,000, according to the SCM Price Guide), but a not-unfair price for a car with this heritage. There are a number offar less attractive cars, built in far higher numbers, that sell for quite a bit more money. Further being a 1900 owner myself I guarantee that the more the new owner drives his car and the harder he pushes it, the more it will reward him.—Craig Morningstar (Historical and descriptive information courtesy of the auction company)• II 1 1.111"ti6,714 www.alfapartscatalog.com 4 17‘.■ ROBB REPORT CAR OF THE YEAR TEST CAR!

Ital Design's Giulio Alfieri, who had earlier designed the immortal 250F Maserati Fl car, designed the Bora. It had acceleration and handling of a high order and a slippery shape, resulting in a top speed of over 155 mph. In 1973 the Bora was updated with a 4.9-liter engine making 310 horsepower, as used previously in the Ghibli SS, and performance was further increased as well. The restored Bora featured here is finished in attractive fly yellow paintwork with black leather interior. The desirable optional air conditioning is fitted, along with all the attractive amenities one would expect from Maserati. The engine bay and chassis are both pleasing to the eye and testify to the car's overall care and maintenance. It is reported that the car handles and drives extremely well. While produced in relatively small numbers and considered highly sought-after, this fast and stylish sports car will make a wonderful addition to any collection. The SC M analysis: This car sold for $44,000, including buyer 's commission, at RM's Monterey auction, August 15-16, 2003. Led by such early examples as the Lamborghini Miura, the Ferrari 250LM, and even the diminutive Lotus Europa, the mid-engine exotic became the ultimate expression of the sports car Bred for absolute performance, these cars featured knife-edge handlingjust a small step away from a race car Engine placement required an unconventional body silhouette, which in turn allowed designers the freedom to be daring and innovative. The results are too severe for some enthusiasts' tastes, but there is little doubt the class contains some of the most breathtaking of all automotive designs. 44  aserati introduced the Bora in 1971, the successor to the front-engined Ghibli. A mid-engined car in the fashion of Ferrari's Boxer, the Bora used Maserati's familiar, reliable and powerful 4.7-liter, four-cam V8, mated to a ZF gear- The Bora, in addition to its good looks, is also a rewarding car to drive and far more usable than the average exotic. Unlike many of the first midengine cars that were compromised with small interiors, tiny trunks, and delicate construction, the Bora is a refined car that offers comfortable amenities with no sacrifice in performance. It 's solid, with a somewhat heavy feeling more akin to a grand tourer than a sports car Fitted with the 4.9-liter engine from the Ghibli SS, the Bora is certainly fast, with oodles of torque and a superb sound. Even with its linkage, the ZF transaxle shifts effortlessly, and raised the bar for mid-engine cars of its time. 1975 Maserati Bora Lot #214, S/N AM117890 Condition: 1 Sold at $43,621 Bonhams; Monaco; 5/12/2001 SCM ID# 23588 1974 Maserati Bars Lot #130, S/N AM1174905762 Condition: 3 Sold at $20,620 Kruse; Auburn, IN; 5/1/2003 SCM I D# 30990 A double-pane rear window helps insulate the engine noise from the passenger compartment, making conversation pleasant at most speeds and adding appreciably to the comfort level. The only glitch to the entire Bora experience is its high-pressure brake system. Yes, among the "attractive amenities" one could expect from Maserati at the time were a whole complement of hydraulically operated features sourced from Citroen. Maserati's parent at the time of the Bora 's birth was the French carmaker that had spent vast amounts of time and money developing high-pressure hydraulic systems for its passenger cars and felt Maserati would be the perfect place to showcase the designs. As such, the Bora is fitted with Citroen's braking system, which is awkward to learn and never instills complete confidence, as the brakes are sensitive to pressure rather than pedal travel. Less frustrating are the Bora 's hydraulically controlled seats, chairs Sports Car Market

The exquisitely detailed bumpers of the European Boras were replaced with moderately attractive stainless  bumpers  steel with Handsome seats and brilliant performance. more comfortable than those in most living rooms, with a look that straight out of Architectural Digest. They resemble one-piece lounge chairs with high, full-width backs, and leg supports that extend nearly to the calf Movement is actuated by hydraulic servos, but is limited to raising or lowering the driver 's seat or changing the rake. Rather than moving the seats forward or backward to achieve a comfortable position vis-à-vis the pedals, another hydraulic servo actually moves the pedals, shades of today's Ford Taurus. Hydraulics are also used to raise the headlamps, and while intimidating at first, the entire hydraulic system is straightforward and easily maintained by a competent mechanic. There are several differences from early to late Boras. One seemingly insignificant, yet important feature is the change from a rear-hinged hood to a fi-ont-hinged one on the later cars. The change was made after multiple latch failures sent hoods crashing into windshields. A vent was added in the fronthood of 1977 and later models to assist in engine cooling, although overheating is not a significant problem if the car 's cooling system is up to snuff Other changes through the years were mostly rubber outriders on the 1973-1974 US. models. Ugly rubberized monoliths were fitted on 1975, and 1977 and later models, enhancing the value of the earlier cars. (Strangely, there wasn't a 1976 Bora) Later cars lost the hubcaps in favor of logo-ed center caps and chrome lug nuts in an effort to modernize the look. This RM auction was heavy with Maseratis, featuring no fewer than 18, including some rare models from an important Mexican collection. As such, it drew a knowledgeable and enthusiastic Maserati contingent, and the result for this driver-condition Bora was on the higher retail side of the market, an example of the extra value that the right venue can add. Boras are undervalued (they peaked at over $125,000 in 1990) and Maseratis in general are on the move up. The re-introduction of the marque to the U.S. has raised speculation on older models, and cars you couldn't give away three years ago are now generating interest. This car was certainly not overpriced today, and if current trends continue, this might seem like a bargain in three years.—Steve Ahlgrim (Historical and descriptive information courtesy of the auction company)• 20-Year Picture $350,000 $300,000 $250,000 $200,000 $150,000 - $100,000 - $50,000 - MIME =Mk IM111//1111. ■■/%11111■411111111■=_ NMI 1! 1  1986 1988  1990 1992 1974 Maserati Born AII—M111=W:  rAIPPL/AaiZMII= _ —alEVA=101IIIMI RIOT ==== June 2004  '!_ 1994  — 1996 1976 Ferrari 512 BB 4410 4dir 1998 2000 — 1979 BMW MI 1 :141 6110:: Prices are for cars in excellent condition.

Designed by Hans Trippel and built in Germany, the Amphicar was a recreational vehicle aimed squarely at the American leisure market. It was a concept devoid of utility.., unless its owner lived on an island in an extremely calm lake. But the cars were undeniably fun and brought a swarm of onlookers each time they splashed into the water. This highly original, impressively equipped, and seaworthy Amphicar delivers more smiles-per-dollar than any other car offered in Arizona this weekend. Even among the contenders, which of them can be driven into Lake Meade for a Sunday fishing trip? The SCM analysts. : This car sold for $29,700 at the RM Phoenix auction, January 23, 2004. Let's take a little trip back in time. It was a cold but bright November day in 1964, the Friday after Thanksgiving. I was 17. A few miles west of Dundee, Ilinois, the remaining snow from a few days prior crunched under the tires of a strange looking car that pulled up our gravel driveway and parked next to my TR3. I didn 't recognize the man that knocked on our breezeway door asking for my father but I invited him in and yelled for dad. Then we all walked outside to see the Amphicar You see, my dad managed an amusement park called "Santa's Village," and thought this amphibious vehicle might have a place in the park. The salesman asked if we could go for a "swim" in the pond behind our house. But dad figured we'd get stuck in the mud upon beaching this weird thing, so it was decided that the best place to demonstrate the water prowess of the car was the nearby boat ramp on the Fox River The Amphi car representative offered to let me drive while he did his best to close the deal. After assuring him I was adept at driving a stick, we headed off to the boat ramp. All three of us were pretty big and the pig-slow car struggled to 60 mph down Huntley Blacktop toward town. As we pulled into the parking area adjacent to the launching ramp, the guy asked me to stop so we could close the auxiliary door latches. We did, and making sure the windows were all the way up, engaged the twin propellers and headed for the water As we plunged down the ramp and into the calm of the Fox, I'd guess we were doing about 20 mph—too fast, as the little red car's momentum was enough to bring a huge wave of water up over the front end and convertible top. "Jesus, Craig," my normally calm father yelled. "He didn't say it was an effing submarine!" This was the first time in my life that I would hear my father use this expletive, but it would not be the last. We cruised around in the riverslowly—then back up the ramp. As it turned out, the salesman knocked one out of the park that afternoon. My dad placed an order for 21 cars, and Santa's Village became an Amphicar dealer This idea was that the cars would become the newest attraction at one of 1964 Amphicar 770 Lot #132,5/N 100184 Condition: 1 Sold at $26,460 Russo and Steele; Monterey, CA ; 8/16/2003 SCM ID #32628 1963 Amphicar Lot #52, S/N 103895 Condition: 3Sold at $25,300 Bonhams; Norburgring, Germany; 8/9/2003 SCM ID #32221 America 's first multi-location theme parks. (Santa 's Village was a precursor, of sorts, to Six Flags or even Disney's theme park operations.) The Amphicars turned out to be a rather short-lived endeavor as they were just not up to the constant abuse of teenage operators. Many ended up sitting out behind the maintenance building, serving as the parts supply for the surviving fleet. Fortunately, in a worst-case scenario the water they were traversing was only deep enough to get people a little wet. In researching this profile I was amazed to find that a number of former Santa's Village cars are among the some 700 Amphicars still swimming around North America. The Amphicar is one of a long list of amphibious cars developed since the dawn of the motorcar era, by the likes of Porsche, Ford, Voisin, DAF, and many more-obscure builders. (The list continues to grow longer: Rinspeed showed a new amphibious car at the 2004 Geneva Motor Show) One of the most prolific designers of amphibious vehicles was Hans Trippel (1908-2001). His first amphibious vehicle was based on a DKW chassis and demonstrated in 1934. Two years later, the Wehrmacht awarded Trippel an order for 800 amphibious vehicles, but the 15,000 smaller, lighter Porsche-designed VW Schwimmwagens overshadowed that produc

tion run. Trippel was soon sent to take over a factory in Molsheim, France (belonging to Ettore Bugatti, of all people), in order to increase production. This plant eventually became a primary supplier of torpedoes for Germany, which enraged the French and led to Trippel 's imprisonment from the end of World War II until 1949. Trippel went on to develop a number of other amphibious vehicles for both civilian and military use. The Amphicar was a truly international product, assembled in Germany by Deutsche Wagen & Machinen Fabrik, and powered by English Triumph Herald 1200 engines linked to proprietary Hermes transmissions. Amphicars had Italian Ceat tires and other components were produced by both English and Dutch suppliers. Amphicars were rather expensive when they were first imported to the U.S., with pricing in the same range as an Alfa Romeo or Porsche. They were quite slow, offering boat-like performance on land and car-like behavior in the water For a collector; the cars offer a lot of "look at me" potential, along with a number of neat features. There's not much else on the road that has bilge pumps, a separate forward/reverse transmission driving twin propellers, a hood mounted horn, a receptacle for aflag on the rear deck, and red and green navigation lights as well as a white taillight. What you can do to hop up a Triumph SpiOre you can also do to an Amphicar, though nothing you do will make performance this vehicle's forte. The car pictured here was represented as an original, unrestored car, with no rust or metal repair, which is as amazing as it is desirable. Should the new owner wish to restore the car, I'm told there is a good supply of NOS parts, and new production body panels and rubber sealing parts are available through Hugh's Imports in Santa Fe Springs, CA. As one restorer states on his Web site: "When you restore one of these, you want to make sure you have found all the holes in the body." The Amphi car has a fairly large fraternity of enthusiasts and an extensive support network. Many of the cars are in their second or third generations of family ownership as they get handed down to children— the target demographic at Santa's Village—who enjoy the ability to drive off into the sunset.., on a lake. While nearly $30k seems like pretty strong money, Amphicar club members will tell you that some pristine, modified examples have been bringing up to $50,000 in private sales. We've yet to see an Amphicar hit that kind of jackpot at a public auction, however I'll be the first to tell you that these vehicles don't make a lot of sense, but neither do the great majority of collector cars. So if something like this floats your boat, just remember to slow it down on the launch ramp.—Craig Morningstar (Historical and descriptive information courtesy of the auction company)• MOTORCAJUCOMPANY 8980 SANTA MONICA BOULEVARD, BEO+RLY HILLS, CALIFORNIA 90069 A PHONE: 310-657-962% &Flex: 310-657-9698 1947 Chrysler Town & Country Convertible, desert sand with matching two tone interior, very original car with light cosmetic restoration, 323 cu.in. straight eight cylinder 'spitfire' engine with fluid drive transmission, runs & drives very well. 584,500. 1950 Jaguar XK 120 OTS Roadster, black with parchment leather interior & black, glass windowed convertible top, very nicely restored matching numbers car, solid wheels & spots, full weather equipment, aesthetically stunning with performance to motch!! $59,500. 1960 Mercedes Beriz 300 SE Roadster, ivory with green leather interior & soft top, stunning fully restored car in exquisite condition throughout, handbook, truly breathtaking. $268,500. 1960 Chevrolet Corvette Roadster, signet red with white cloves end matching interior & white soft top, very clean good driving car, 283 cu engine, four speed manual transmission, two tops.

orsc e esprac  um c rager Targa Topics I heartily recommend lift-off-roof 911 Targas. They are a good value, and like 356 Cabriolets of a few decades ago, may someday be more valuable than Coupes their sunny day aspect. The SCM Price Guide says some of them are worth less than Coupes, some the same, some even more. In other models, like the Ferrari Dino 246, the open version is worth more, so why not here? Which do you prefer between the soft and hard rear window models? And by the way, since every 914 is a Targa why doesn't anyone call them that?—JJR, Memphis, TN  D True, some enthusiasts are down on ear Mr. Schrager: I've got some questions about Targas. I hear guys in the local club telling me to stay away from them, but I like oteren, i„,„4011:4 i' , 41p, ket for used glass rear windows because, short of a major collision, they almost never break. The other upside to the hard window is that it allowed for a lighter alloy frame for the folding top. Beltare of leaks with Taigas. Targas. To answer why, it's best to split the world into two segments, those who race and those who don't. For those who do, the answer is simple: Coupes are lighter and more rigid. For those who don't, the answer is more complex. Some find the lines of the Coupe, with its fixed roof and conventional rear window, more pleasing to look at. For others, Targas lose out on a couple of the important qualities that define the 911, like the solid, carved-from-a-single-billet-of-steel feel and all-weather operation. Many Targas tend to leak as they age, a problem exacerbated by the fact that some of the original front header seals are no longer available. These have been superseded with a seal that is too thick, causing the Targa top to sit high, which in turn creates both wind noise and leaks, traits unbecoming to any car, but especially a Porsche. Even so, Targas have always been in demand in the U.S., as for years, when there were no cabriolets offered, they were the 911 driver's only way to enjoy semi-topless motoring. But the reality of the Porsche market is that many owners use their cars on the track, if not in fender-to-fender racing then for autocrossing or lapping sessions. SCM prices most Targas equal to Coupes, with the exception of the high-dollar early 911S cars (1969-1973), where Coupes command a premium. Many S owners take their cars to the track, where a Targa simply isn't as fast. That most of the owners do not have the driving skill to tell the difference doesn't matter—they want to drive what the fast guys drive. PLASTIC VS. GLASS The "soft" versus "hard" rear window debate requires some explaining. The original Targa roof was built with a very heavy frame, necessary to beef up the structure of the open-air model. In the beginning (model year 1967), these cars had a "soft" rear window made of conventional clear plastic. But once in production, Porsche discovered that Targas still had too much chassis flex, so it developed a "hard" curved rear glass to stiffen the structure. In fact, the glass is so strong that there is little mar- 48  A 914 ROADSTER? Regarding the 914, they are officially "Roadsters" and were never called Targas by Porsche. The factory clearly wanted to keep its plebeian 914 distinct from the top-of-the-line 911 model of that name. However, a lift-off roof was considered so vital to sales in the early 1970s that the "Targa" body style was the only one offered for the 914. Targa 911s with lift-off roofs were made up through the Carrera 2 and When the hard rear window debuted in 1968 it was an extra-cost option, but by 1969, virtually all Targas had glass. Shunned for years, the soft rear window Targas are now enjoying a renaissance, partially because so few were made. We value soft rear window Targas higher than Coupes for this reason. Soft rear window Targa values are also being helped along by the increase in values of all early 911s. 4 models of 1994 (internally known as the "964" from 1990). In 1995, the lift-off roof models disappeared with the 993 series. Porsche did reintroduce a Targa in 1996, with a giant sliding glass roof, and no removable panel. To my mind, it should have been called something else, like "Panorama," after the show car that introduced this design idea. I heartily recommend lift-off-roof Targas. They are a good value, and like 356 Cabriolets of a few decades ago, Targas may someday be more valuable than Coupes. SHOPPING LIST A "Targa," but not officially. If you're shopping for a Targa, look for rust on the tops of the rear fenders, just below where the Targa bar cover rests. Interiors get extra wear and tear in these cars, especially if the top leaks, so spend extra time looking at the carpet and fabrics. When you go for a test drive, drive the car with the top on! Drive over some rough roads and see what noises develop. Inspect the top carefully to see if it needs recovering, about $600 plus another $100 if the headliner needs to be renewed. The seals around the edges can be a few hundred dollars each, so inspect them with care. If the Targa top rattles, it is often an easy remedy. The top's outer frame is made of a set of complex alloy castings, with the folding fabric held to the frame fore and aft with a series of eight metal clips. Over the years, these clips expand just a bit, allowing the top to rattle. A set of the latest-style clips runs about $175, and can usually solve the problem. While it's true that Targas require more care than Coupes, on those glorious summer days, it's all worth it.• Sports Car Morket

American Car Profile 1938 Lincoln Zephyr Street Rod The ringmen worked this sale hard, and at its dramatic conclusion the owners were high-fiving as though they'd just won the lottery DATA Years produced: 1936-1942 Number produced: 2,600 coupes in 1938 Original list price: $1,295 SCM Valuation: S35,000-S45,000 (stock 1938 coupe) Tune-up/major service: approx.

The car comes equipped with air-ride TCI suspension, rack-and-pinion steering, air conditioning, C-4 automatic transmission, and an imported leather interior. It features a custom-built Lincoln V12 engine by Dave Tatom using rare "one-of-a-kind" speed equipment. The SCM analysis: This car sold for $432,000 at Barrett-Jackson's Scottsdale auction, held on Jan. 22-25, 2004, and was the top sale of the event. T he car on offer here is one of the most famous street rods ever created. This custom, all-steel Lincoln Zephyr three-window coupe was nationally selected by Goodguys and judged winner of "America's Most Beautiful" Street Rod award. Inspired by Terry Cook's chopped and radically lowered Lincoln Zephyr custom coupe, known as "Scrape," Mike Shiflett of Otis Orchard, WA, began looking for an example that he could build into a street rod. Shiflett found this '38 coupe in stock condition, drove it for six months, then took it apart and began working with Tim Stromberger of nm's Hot Rods in Spokane Valley, WA, to rebuild the car into a custom. They picked a great place to start. Zephyr coupes are the zenith of art-deco styling. Considered attractive by rodders and restorers alike, the '38 is one of the nicest because of its smartly vee-ed grille. Riding on a stylishly long 125-inch wheelbase, with allowing roofline and handsome pontoon fenders, and packing a single-carbureted, 267-cid flathead V12, Zephyrs are semi-classics. They looked great the way they were, and as such, were never really hot-rodded in period. Perhaps one reason was the anemic stock engine, really aflathead Ford V8 with four extra cylinders. It often suffered from overheating and fuel starvation, and in the rare instances where a Zephyr was redone, the V12 was usually dumped in favor of a hot-rodded Ford or Mercutyflathead, or even more popularly, a Cadillac or Oldsmobile overhead-valve V8. But in this car, the Lincoln engine is the piece de resistance. Instead of a ubiquitous 350-ci Chevy, it carries a real Zephyr V12, albeit one that was hot-rodded, by Dave Tatom of Mt. Vernon, WA. He installed a custommade, highly polished three-carburetor intake with triple Holley 92-series carbs, along with a set of polished, finned high-compression heads. A custom set of exhaust headers dumping into a pair of glasspack mufflers rumbles with a nasty little rap when the engine is revved. The born-again engine makes a dyno-proven 178 hp (vs. a rated 110 hp stock). Altogether an impressive feat, considering that back in the late 1940s, about the only speed equipment available for these engines was a now-rare dual intake manifold (both Edelbrock and Edmunds made one) or an Iskenderian 3/4-race camshaft. The car debuted at the 2001 Spokane Auto, Boat and Speed Show, and was seen again at the Oakland Rod, Custom and Motorcycle Show. It won awards at both venues. 1 saw it at Oakland in 2002 and was impressed with the way the original car's already great 1957 Chevrolet CheZoom Lot #268, S/N VC575300329 Condition: 1 Sold at $183,600 Barrett-Jackson; Los Angeles, CA; 6/16/2002 SCM ID: 28550 1932 Ford Custom Lot #436, S/N 32 Condition: 1 Sold at $264,000 RM Auctions ; Monterey, CA ; 8/18/2000 SCM ID: 10276 proportions had been improved on. Build quality was excellent and the car was imaginative and truly unique; retaining the original Lincoln V12 was a distinctive plus. As noted in the auction catalog, the Zephyr went on to win the Goodguys Rod & Custom Association "America's Most Beautiful Street Rod" award at the 16th West Coast Nationals in Pleasanton, CA, in 2002. Shiflett showed the car a few more times, then sold it to Rick Cooper (Coronado Classics) and Dennis LeKander (Idaho Auto Company). Initially, Shiflett had planned to have them take the car to Barrett-Jackson on his behalf and sell it on commission. He changed his mind, apparently because he was apprehensive about a no-reserve offering. "We thought the workmanship was excellent, and we felt fortunate to be able to get this can" LeKander told me. Spreading their risk, the buyers offered shares to a consortium of four friends, and, as part of a comprehensive plan to publicize the sale,

displayed the Zephyr again, at a November 2003 Goodguys event in Arizona. After considerable promotion by the buyers and Barrett-Jackson, the custom Zephyr was offered in prime time on the Speed Channel, where it sold for an astonishing $432,000—the highest known price ever paid for a street rod or custom car The ringmen worked this sale hard, and at its dramatic conclusion, several of the owners were seen high-flying on the platform as though they just won the lottery. And perhaps they did. The closest comparable to this car is arguably its inspiration, Scrape, which was purchased by the Petersen Automotive Museum for $275,000 at the 2000 RM Auction in Monterey, CA. At the time, we reasoned that Scrape had benefited from extensive publicity, that it was one of the definitive custom cars of the 1990s, and that it would make a unique, attentiongetting display for the Petersen. Another similar custom was "Sniper" a Viper VI 0-powered '54 Plymouth created by Troy Trepanier for George Poteet, which sold for $162,000 two years ago. That car also won the Goodguys National title. Poteet undoubtedly spent a great deal more than that to have the car built, though he wasn't disappointed "When was the last time anybody got that much money for a '54 Plymouth?" he joked after the sale. True, when extensively customized cars like this one are sold, especially if they are only a few years old, it uncommon for builders to receive sums equal to or even close to the construction cost. We estimate the cost to build the Shiflett Zephyr in the $200,000-plus range. The own- ers thought the car might sell for more than $300k, but were surprised (and delighted) to see it go so high. The promotion and television influence was certainly a huge factor in the price, but many high-roller collectors I've talked with felt this custom Zephyr was actually worth the money, including one bidder who dropped out at $395,000. Remember several others chased the buyer right up the scale. Still, this price is an abnormally high figure. While this Zephyr did win a few significant show titles, it did not win the Detroit Autorama Riddler Award, generally considered the most significant prize in hot rodding. Billing as "one of the most famous street rods ever created" is hyperbole of the first order: The car does represent a fine Pacific Northwest effort, and while its builders are certainly talented, they are not as well known as customizers like Chip Foose, Steve Moal, Boyd Coddington or Troy Trepanier So if I were you, I wouldn't be planning on searching out a Lincoln Zephyr to customize and expecting to rake in a multiple six-figure sum. This result is one that won't soon be repeated.—Ken Gross (Historical information courtesy of the auction company, Goodguys Rod & Custom Association, and the Lincoln-Zephyr Owners' Club, along with references from the author's collection of books and magazines, with thanks to Rick Cooper and Dennis LeKander)• 1145 Park Avenue Emeryville, California USA 94608 Phone: (510) 653-7555 • Fax: (510) 653-9754 www.fantasyjunction.com Towatsteati at (Ward eatetea, dew& awe de94 fterjaroteutee eau 1965 Alfa Romeo GTA 1600 Stradale. s/n 613825.

I 1 •F' • I 1 I 1 I 1 • • uring the mid-1980s, Glenn Shaffer began a search for an Allard J2 with racing heritage. He found this car in Lima, Peru, suspecting it was the "missing" #2 Le Mans race car that had been driven by Peter Reece and Alfred Hitchings in 1951. The car on offer here has been subsequently confirmed and documented by Allard experts to be that car. When discovered, the Allard was complete and had the correct 1951 Cadillac OHV V8 engine, but the chassis was in need of a full restoration. The car included features not commonly found on other J2s, like a 55-gallon fuel cell, aluminum-reinforced body, and vented front fenders. After completing the restoration, Shaffer competed in some of the top vintage races in North America with the Allard, including the prestigious Monterey Historic Car Races at Laguna Seca, and was invited to the Pebble Beach Concours in 1994. Only 90 J2s were originally built and only a handful are "competition only" models. With a 390-ci, 300-plus-horsepower Cadillac V8, fed through a four-speed manual transmission, this J2 is brutally fast, a real favorite with race fans on the West Coast vintage circuit. The SCM analysis: This car sold for $324,000 at the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction held on Jan 22-25. Sydney Allard was a racer from the start, and though his company made mostly prosaic sedans, his heart was in the competition-oriented J series cars, the J2 and the J2X Their primary difference was that the X had the engine moved forward seven-and-a-half inches, leading to a revised front suspension. While this supposedly improved the handling, the biggest benefit for most vintage racers is that it also allows for a cockpit large enough to fit normal human beings without requiring amputation. Few "normal" racers are found in Allards, however, as these cars are the exclusive province of the real "he-men" of vintage racing. Those with any interest in a car's 'feminine" attributes—handling, steering precision, ride comfort, protection from the elements, etc.—should look elsewhere. 1E1 1 Offering nothing in the way of design subtlety, J2s are all about horsepower-to-weight. Allard used the biggest, baddest engines he could get his hands on, though in the beginning that wasn't much. Early J2s used an English Ford 3.6-liter flathead V8 (making maybe 100 hp), attached to a three-speed transmission—hardly the stuff of legend. Cadillac helped the cause when it introduced its 331-ci V8, the first of the "modern" postwar engines. Light, compact and powerful (all of 150 hp claimed), the Cadillac V8 was the hot ticket, but import restrictions made them difficult to get in England. (Most, if not all, US-export cars at this time were shipped without engines, which were supplied and installed by the importer.) The first few Caddy motors Allard laid his hands on were used in the factory racers, including the car pictured here.

The chassis is a strange combination of crude and sophisticated. The front suspension could be the prototype for Ford's Twin 1-Beam truck design, strong but with terrible geometry, a leftover from the marque's trial car origins. We once had a tech inspector at Monterey look at the front end of a J2X, take a deep breath and say, "Wow! Where's the 'crimes against nature' checkbox on this form?" On the other hand, the rear suspension is amazingly nice, a de Dion design using a Ford center and inboard drums. Supple is not a word you would use to describe an Allard. The ride is buckboard stiff, the cars push like crazy at the limit, and if the steering is the slightest bit worn or out of alignment they'll wander something awful. On the track you deal with this by driving like a real cowboy. Entering a corner, you try to get the car slowed down enough, then try to get the front to turn in. Once it does, you need to jump all over the 1111!11_11_Z.V.5151!-Ze6155.55.55116M011.1Z65.1.61569211 v4 ,

It makes for a crowd-pleasing show if you're brave enough to do it, and can be a lot offun. If you choose to do a vintage rally, the technique is a bit different—I'd call it "coping." I drove a 1,000mile event in a J2, spending hours wondering if that nice person in the car up ahead would like to trade out for a few miles... At one point, they closed down a section of the road for a speed run and! managed to go 108 mph. The engine was only turning about 3,100 rpms, but I just didn't dare go any fasten Trying to keep the Allard from wandering too much on the rutted highway was terrible. Restoring an Allard can be just as challenging as driving one. When our shop was going through a J2X, we found it had actual pieces of welding rod and splatter sticking to the joints in the frame. When we started to clean them up, the experts said "No! Don't do that! That 's how you know it's original!" Of course, the biggest part of the Allard persona is the conviction that too much horsepower is never enough, and modern vintage racing setups push this belief to the limits. When this J2 ran at Le Mans, it had a more or less stock 331 with a strict 4,000-rpm redline, driving through a Ford three-speed transmission. But a car like that wouldn't even keep up on apace lap at your typical vintage race. Today, most J2s (including this one) have the 390-ci Cadillac V8 from 1958-1959, which looks the same on the outside but makes well INN over 400 horsepower in racing trim. The transmission of choice is now a four-speed Borg Warner T-10, first built in 1957. (The three-speeds from the 1949-1952 period wouldn't stand a chance against the bigger engine.) While this setup may be far from original, Allards were certainly raced in this state in the late '50s, so who to complain? The SCM Price Guide lists J2Xs at $60-110k, which is probably too low and needs revising, as my polling of the Allard die-hards says they'd peg a car like this at $175,000-$200,000. Even so, there's still another degree of separation between that price and the $324k that bought this car I'll admit that I haven't got a clue as to why this car sold for so much money, and nor does anyone else that I've asked. All I can say is that that car was beautifully done, with Le Mans history, center-stage at Barrett-Jackson and televised on The Speed Channel.

This month's auction reports come from such disparate venues as tony Paris, where Dave Brownell had to keep his French-English dictionary at the ready, to sundrenched West Palm Beach, FL, with Dave Kinney reporting on Barrett-Jackson's attempt to build an eastern wing on their dynasty, and ending up in Puyallup, WA (not often referred to as the Paris of the Pacific Northwest), with Carl Bomstead writing about regular cars for regular folks, some even with mere four-digit prices. All these events have one thing in common—they are the arenas where car collectors gather to kick tires, buy and sell cars, trade opinions, and generally have a good time. Prices ranged from $1,100 for a homemade Yamaha trike at Silver to $852,500 for a 1957 Mercedes-Benz 540K at RM. In general, prices seemed stable, if not flat. Even the roaring value of the Euro wasn't enough to propel most of the values of the Christie's and Artcurial cars, with a couple of notable exceptions, through the roof. If I were to use one word to characterize the market, it would be thoughtful. There's a lot going on in the world these days, and collectors, while still buying and selling, are keeping one eye on the global newsfront, while with the other looking over a '67 Camaro.—ED.

Top sale for the weekend was a 1937 MercedesBenz 540K Cabriolet A that hammered at $852,750, including commission. A 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4, a very origi- R nal alloy car, sold for $682,000. All was not happy in Ferrari-land, however, as the feature and cover car, a 1972 Ferrari 312 PB, was a no sale at $1,600,000, reportedly just $50,000 short of its low estimate. Of the 11 Ferraris offered, nine did manage to find a new home including a slightly disheveled 1962 Ferrari 250 GTE with later-model mag wheels that went to a new owner at $37,400. Island and the auction event held on the grounds of the Ritz-Carlton, RM made a spectacular presentation. The varied selection included cars in all ranges of condition, something not always seen at catalog events, which meant there was something for a buyer of every budget here. In addition, the 3rd annual SCM Insider's Seminar at RM Amelia was a great success. RM's staff was extremely gracious in welcoming everyone, and provided us with everything we needed to have a good session. One enthusiastic attendee told me, "It's a real mark of the confidence that RM has in its consignments that they encourage these seminars. After all, a car is what it is, and the more that we can look at and talk about them, the more encouraged we are to bid on them." The concours on Sunday brought forth RM Auctions - Amelia Island, FL nothing short of an astonishing array of automobiles from all eras. This year's honoree, Bobby Unser, a well-spoken and charming racer, played host while many of his famous race cars were on display. In a relatively short time, Amelia Island has become one of the "can't miss" events on the automotive calendar. The sale and the concours make for a fun weekend no matter what your level of automotive interest. If you haven't been, you owe it to yourself to attend next year.—D.K.

Last year for Mark IX most developed of the big Jaguar sedans of the series, the new Mark X series went to a fully independent suspension, unit-body structure, and less appealing body style. Seller is an SCMer with full documentation of restoration and Heritage Certificate; says he uses the car regularly. Awareness of restoration costs and no-stories status might have pushed the price to the stratosphere. Probably a Mk IX world record, if anyone is keeping track. 1962 JAGUAR XICE roadster. SIN 875821. Carman red/black leather. Odo: 1,632 miles. Reported full restoration by marque specialist, 2003 JCNA National Champion, numerous concours awards and Heritage Certificate.

Engine and chassis well detailed and finished better than new. Cond: 1-. SOLD AT $90,200. It's not that unusual for high-quality full restorations on Series I roadsters, especially when backed up with appropriate awards and documents, to bring $90k-plus, as this one did. Mercedes fared well, with seven of eight offerings selling. Two open cars made strong-for-condition money, a 220S cabriolet at $36,300 and a 190SL roadster that sold for $44,000. The sole no-sale was a 1955 Mercedes 300SL alloy coupe, bid to $715,000, likely a victim of some unanswered questions about its competition history. One of the most intriguing cars was a 1934 Ford McQuay-Norris Streamliner, an unusual special bodied car originally built for an engine-rebuilding firm; it managed $90,000. A 1958 Cadillac Series 75 Fleetwood Limo, once owned by novelist Clyde Cussler, was a fan favorite. Despite some blue smoke coming out of the tailpipes, the car sold for $27,500, well over the unrealistically low 56  Door handle chrome pitted. Paint on wire wheels aging.

Funny how folks like these family Ferraris more then they admit—they are clean of line and offer some great fun for low dollars, relatively speaking. This would have been a $25,000 car five years ago; prices of all early V12s have been everso-slowly creeping up. #110-1967 MASERATI GHIBLI coupe. S/N 115114. Red/black. Odo: 46,405 miles. Extremely nice paint, shiny chrome but showing some signs of poor prep before plating, is dirty but appears largely correct. A ho-hum presentation, nothing brilliant to offset the ordinary. Cond: 3. SOLD AT $77,000. The 330 GTC was sold from 1966 through 1968, and it was replaced by the 365 GTC, a car never officially imported to the United States. The 330 is a very versatile and usable Ferrari—a true GT, a long-distance tourer Having no wire wheels is a minus for most, a/c a big plus. Prices have been from $75,000-$125,000 depending on condition, so I'd call this a small bargain ff nothing nasty happens in the next six months. #153-1967 FERRARI 275 GTB/4 alloy coupe.

(Congratulations, your car is now 37 years old and it hasn't burned to the ground yet!) Not a great buy, the challenge would be to find one that presents better at a lower price. #I32-1967 FERRARI 330 GTC coupe. S/N 8923. Silver blue/oxblood leather. Odo: 46,607 miles.

Market Reports  RM Auctions - Amelia Island, FL sold. Exceptional Dinos can get to $100k, but still nowhere near the $250k one brought in 1990. Handsome cars, not too much power, a little fragile, but a true classic. Odo: 7,091 miles. Alloy coupe. Chrome Borranis in good shape. Miles claimed original, plenty of info present to back it up. One dent and at least one ding in passenger fender, small scrape in passenger door. Overall, a few paint and corrosion issues in this thin-skinned wonder; tidy interior, very original and complete. Cond: 2-. SOLD AT $682,000. One of just 13 (or possibly 14) aluminum-bodied GTB/4s built. Well bought, although will not be cheap to make into a true first-rate example. My personal feeling is that this is a true automotive investment, both for the soul and for the purse. Expect to see the alloy cars back at over a million, and expect it soon.

Sabelt safety harness, cloth seats, red/black houndstooth. Lots of wear to steering wheel, minor chips to surprisingly good #145 - Cond: 4+. SOLD AT $42,000. Euro-spec car. I've seen quite a few of these recently, both at the auctions and on the dealers' showroom floors; it seems as if they are currently oozing out of owners' hands and looking for new homes. Happier examples are out there, and they do not seem to be much more expensive. It's important to find one that has actually been used by the last owner as opposed to a garage queen; you don't want to be the one who gets to replace all of the parts that go bad from sitting. #170 1973 FERRARI 365 GTS/4 DAY- TONA SPYDER. S/N 365GTB/417013. Sable brown/saddle leather. Odo: 2,832 miles. Factory Daytona Spyder. Interior appears original excepting radio. Paintwork shows some mottled areas.

Stone chips, some repaint evidence on nose mars otherwise acceptable paintwork. Black trim shows no signs of fade. Wear to leather commensurate to indicated miles, still looks quite good. Minor delamination #184 - tr. _. 401kmifitrti .kte. on windshield, not yet a problem. SOLD AT $33,000. Here is one I just can't understand. Most people prefer either the earlier cars with carbs or the later cars with four-valve motors. This car is a tweener, fuel-injected but with two valves. This was a very strong sales price, considering that at auction, the details are especially tough to ferret out. Lots of money in my book. #143-1990 LAMBORGHINI COUNTACH ANNIVERSARY coupe. S/N ZA9CAO5A3LLA12716. White/red, white piping. Odo: 9,438 miles. Looking surprisingly crisp for its age. Claimed one-owner car. Light wear to driver's seat, some of the white piping is discolored. Paintwork overspray on driver's-side duct, one or two chips in front coachwork. Shell, Heuer, Carello, Firestone graphics. Some issues about exact replica with same chassis number built by former owner (real one for show, fake one to race). Cond: 2. NOT SOLD AT $1,600,000. Car has been shopped around a lot, and, unfortunately, catalog didn't address well-known duplicate chassis issue. I have rarely seen a car spend as much time on the block as this one: Time for a sandwich, a drink, and perhaps a phone call before the next car rolled in. One can only assume that RM was very close to making a deal on the block. Next time it comes up I'll order in some Chinese. 1972 FERRARI 365 GTC/4 coupe. S/N 15257. Silver. Odo: 7,415 kilometers.

Plywood floors, seats from Pier One. Hand-painted graphics look good. Cond: 3-. SOLD AT $33,000. It was steel, then glass, now steel again, hardly what could reasonably carry the claim "original."

If you saw the photo in the catalog, you would be less than impressed; seeing the car in person, however, you would be left with a different impression. Very stylish with flowing lines, a logical choice when new in place of a Packard or Auburn. Not cheap, but well bought for a long-term hold. Rumble seat shows wear, interior wood excellent, aged gauges, dry rot in whitewall area of tires. Cond: 3-. SOLD AT $88,000. Despite the musings in the auction catalog that the car is ready for shows or touring duties, with the age of the restoration it time to take this good-looking roadster on the road for drives, not for trophies.

Said to have been the 1938 Paris Auto Salon show car Last reported at the RM NYC sale, 9/21/02, $187,000 high bid, no sale. 9 miles added since last viewing. A visually stunning car perhaps not to everyone's taste, however Those who know say that a Series 80 is a great driving car and as such was a good choice for a coachbuilt body. There are only a handful of cars in the world that sell in excess of a quarter of a million dollars, and few of them are Buicks.

White/yellow/black/ yellow/black/white vinyl. Odo: 53,853 miles. 352-ci V8, auto. Very much the older restoration, now shows some age and deterioration. Kelsey-Hayes wire wheels, some chrome is spotty. Very nice interior, clean underneath, show a driver and six passengers—it's that large. Value does not seem out of place here, however 1 could personally find another way to rid myself of 330 large. #137-1948 PACKARD EIGHT WOODY wagon. S/N 2392531831. Tan/wood/saddle vinyl, cloth. Odo: 17,228 miles. 327-ci V8. Some delaminating to wood, actual peeling in some areas. Good paint, chrome is complete but no longer bright as it should be. Some gaskets weak. Interior is quite nice, shows better than said to be strong runner. The kind you want to buy—ready to use but not show. Cost new $5,932. Cond: 3+. SOLD AT $33,000. Is this the beginning of the end for upward trends in Caribbean prices? I doubt it, as this car looks like it will be much more comfortable taking its owner out for a trip to the supermarket than a concours. A very good buy for someone who Sports Car Market

The Chrysler letter-series cars (1955 till 1965, letters B through L) are now sought-after collectibles in any year and any form.

I remember this car as the Bryant Heating & Cooling Systems car; it ran Indy four times 1958 through 1964, and its best finish was eighth in 1959 with Eddie Johnson behind the wheel. Price achieved seems quite fair Its still ready for the track and will give the new owner a Detroit-based publishing mogul and enthusiastic SCMer, a decent entry to track and concours events for many years to come. #114-1959 CADILLAC ELDORADO BIARRITZ convertible.

Market Reports  Barrett-Jackson - West Palm Beach, FL d4?-NarA Barrett-Jackson West Palm Beach, Florida March 19-21, 2004 Auctioneers.  Number of lots-  Number of lots sold:  Sales rate:  Sale total:  High Sale:  Tom "Spanky" Assiter, Mark Gelman, Andy Adcock 338 3021 88% II.8 ninon Lot 394, 1956 Mercedes-Benz 300SL, sold at $302,400 Premium: 8% (included in prices of sold lots) Two of the GM collection pace cars were crowd pleasers: A 1986 Corvette that paced the Indianapolis 500 found a new home at $86,400 and a 1998 Corvette that served the same role sold for $97,200. These pace cars were the real thing—not to be confused with the serial-produced replicas GM is famous for. My favorite car at the sale was a 1950 Jaguar Mark V drophead coupe, which sold for $49,140. It's rare to see a Mark V at auction and the number of expertly restored Mark Vs that show little signs of use can be counted on one hand. Closing in on $50,000 is top money, but the purchaser, "America's Most Wanted" host John Walsh, made a savvy buy, both as a long-term hold as an immediate nifty piece. Craig Jackson's expansion into Palm Beach seems like a more logical step today than it did a year ago. With the power of television, the Barrett-Jackson name, and of course, the Barrett-Jackson team, it looks as if the 2005 event will become a cornerstone of the auction season.—D.K. Report by Dave Kinney Market opinion in italics y now we all know about BarrettJackson's astounding results in Scottsdale. So how's this for an encore: The West Palm Beach auction nearly doubled in size in only its second year, with 302 cars sold for $11.8 million, a result that would make any auction company, at any venue, happy. B The venue, the South Florida Expo Center, is inland from the Palm Beach you might be familiar with. There are no sounds of surf or oceanfront condos, and the fairgrounds here lie close to Florida's turnpike, good for easy in and out, but not so good for having restaurants and nightlife nearby. The weather was cooperative, well into the 80s in the daytime without a drop of rain in sight. Notable sales included a 1958 Plymouth Fury, the "star" of the movie "Christine." At $167,400 it's a pricey bit of movie history, and one of the rare times we've seen a "famous" car really bring the big bucks. If you watched the action live on the Speed Channel, with our Editor, along with Rick DeBruhl, Mike Joy and Alain DeCadenet offering commentary, you might have gained the impression that consignments consisted solely of oddball late-model General Motors vehicles—pace cars, support vehicles, and one-off design concepts and studies—all being disposed of en masse as GM pares down its collection in preparation for the opening of its Heritage Center this summer. That so many of them appeared on camera was either an accident of programming or a goodie tossed GM's way, but in reality the overall mix was a good blend of sports, exotic, special interest, classic and muscle cars. 70 ENGLISH #38-1950 JAGUAR MARK V DHC. S/N 647096. Black/red leather. Odo: 54,077 miles. A wonderful example of a car that rarely gets done to acceptable levels. Excellent paint and chrome, excepting one part of one landau iron. Very good panel fit; cloth top is dirty but will clean up. Excellent fit and finish to interior, and done well with proper style. Cond: 1-. SOLD AT $49,140. The purchaser; "America's Most Wanted" host John Walsh, is now the proud owner of one of the nicest Mark Vs I have ever seen. Perhaps $500 away from having all the little bits cleaned and straightened out, this is one handsome and impressive big kitty. Price was full market, but no question, in this case, a bargain. #352.1-1957 JAGUAR XK140 FHC. S/N S815710BW. Red/grey vinyl. Odo: 87,956 miles. Automatic. Nothing special, but an honest-appearing car with lots to like. Decent older paint, shows signs of aging, no need to repaint yet. Good quality chrome, no pitting Sports Car Market with plenty of scratches, outside mirror desilvering. Wood steering wheel, leather seats well patinated. Aluminum insert in console is well worn. Nothing close to exciting here. Cond: 4+. SOLD AT $48,600. Very surprising result. 1 would have pegged this no more than in the mid-$30s. With a still-ample supply of restored early E-types for not much more money, 1 hope the new owner either enjoys the patina of an honest used car, or decides he didn't mind paying a premium for a solid base for a complete restoration. #422 1965 AUSTIN HEALEY 3000 BJ8 - - roadster. S/N 65HBJ8L28404. Black/black vinyl. Odo: 83,865 miles. Paint is shiny and has good depth, however signs of poor prep and uneven application abound. Most chrome found. Chrome wires appear to be new. No help found with vinyl interior. Cond: 3. SOLD AT $21,330. Also ran as lot #41 and was declared sold at $35,100. 1 don't know the reason behind the rerun; let's just assume that it was a non-registered bidder Automatic transmission is unusual, no longer the big minus it once was because of changing tastes. Pricey at $35k, a great deal at $21k. 1963 JAGUAR XKE convertible. S/N 876843. Old English White/red leather. Odo: 48,609 miles. One-family owned from new. Claimed one repaint 10 years ago. Redline Michelin tires. The quality of the repaint ranges from good to fair, chrome is no better #9005 -

Paint to a fair standard, now shows some pops and surface rust by left rear window. Chrome is tired in areas, buffed through to base metal in some. Rubber gaskets have given thereafter Looks to have recently had some major money spent for a replacement interior; paintwork, however; is showing needs. Still well in excess of $10,000 needs to be spent, at which time it will be a decent $20,000 car Fair enough here if the new owner can keep it out of the shop. #66-1972 ROLLS-ROYCE SILVER SHADOW sedan. S/N LRA12360. Bright blue/black leather. Odo: 67,623 miles. Painted in 2003, all that's left to do is everything else. Much chrome is cloudy and scratched, most Market Reports up to snuff? Figure that for, say, $5,000. Guess what? You could have bought a really nice one for $25,000 or less. (Did I just save you the cost of a few years' subscription, or what?) I do admit, however; that it can be awfully hard to pass up any Roller at $ 12k, no matter how awful it is. Hope does spring eternal. #431-1975 ASTON MARTIN V8 coupe. S/N V811369LCA. Silver/red. Odo: 28,227 miles. Silver repaint is well done, not close to show condition but not hateful. Wheels show discoloration, brightwork holding up well. Dry gaskets on doors and windows. Faded leather still quite supple, needs some easy-to-add way in places, cracked in others. Leather has been recently replaced and shows well. Refinished wood. Cond: 3-.

A market price here, but this car, with all this documentation, and in this condition, will always be a good buy. #673-1968 SHELBY GT500 convertible. S/ N 8TO3S178859. Red/black vinyl. Odo: 43,281 miles. 4-sp, power steering and brakes. Lots of mismatched gaps and less-than-fair-quality paint. Plenty of easy-to-fix chrome problems including scratched and pitting mirrors and door handles. Dent on stainless surrounding windshield. Engine bay nicely detailed. Interior clean, wires to FM converter look like from Radio Shack. Cond: 3-. SOLD AT $78,300. A run through a Mustang supply catalog with a Visa card, and perhaps five hours worth of time to install the parts after they arrived, would dramatically improve the appearance of this Shelby. Anything the new owner does cosmetically will help on the value side, and there's definitely an upside here. #15-1968 FORD THUNDERBIRD sedan. S/N 8Y87N128777. Dark green/black vinyl.

SOLD AT $12,240. A strong price but not unreasonably high. This survivor shows well, even though it appears to have some freshening-up repaint work. I don't think a four-door Thunderbird is many folks idea of a dream-car collectible, but price when compared with Lincolns and Cadillacs of the era seems fair #661-1969 PONTIAC GTO convertible.

Excellent interior appears as new. Cond: 2-. SOLD AT $19,548. This car sold new for $4,350.71. With low miles and good options, the only thing holding this car back is its baby blue paint. This one moves directly into the "well bought" column. #383 1986 CHEVROLET CORVETTE - uninspired, seams are less than straight. Cond: 2-. SOLD AT $31,860. One day after the auction when I was looking the car over; the rubber rub strip on the rear bumper had fallen off and was partially dragging on the ground. Either this car escaped from the restoration shop a few hours before the auction, or! would question the quality over the long term. If the restoration holds up and the numbers match, a good buy was had. #384.1 - 1970 PLYMOUTH SUPERBIRD shows well with good seats and carpets added-on gauges. Good dash. No console power equipment or air conditioning. Older restoration, still standing proud. Cond: 2-. SOLD AT $32,540. No surprises here, sold right where you would have expected it to find a new owner With low options, its use is more limited than its luxury-equipped brethren. That said, it's more representative of most Boss 302s as more were built without options such as air conditioning and automatic transmission. 1970 AMC REBEL coupe. S/N A0M190Y228442.

SOLD AT $86,400. One of the three built for pace-car duties at the 1986 Indy 500, not a replica. Presented at the auction by General Motors—a pretty good authority to verfy its originality. About 5 or 6 times what you would pay for a replica pace car of a similar vintage, and this one was worth every penny. True history, not just a facsimile. #383.1 1998 CHEVROLET CORVETTE - Good chrome, but overall an uninspired exterior. Interior has dirty seats, dash has wear spots and some sort of mold-like substance on panels. Very weak carpets. Cond: 3 - good to poor. Original interior has wear to seats, perhaps would clean up with a few hours of work. Cond: 3. SOLD AT $110,700. My initial thought is that this car was too expensive for its condition. With Mopar cars in general, however the price seems to be a moving target that recently only moves in one direction—up. The presentation here was only mediocre. For this kind of money I would have expected a bit more shine and sizzle. But it really does seem like you can't go wrong on a factory-correct 'Bird these days. Wonder how often ED. thinks about the $23k he got for his Superbird back in 1987? . SOLD AT $19,980. One of the cars from the BarrettJackson Car Search program on the Speed Channel.

Exterior graphics and paint excellent, driver's seat shows quite a bit of wear in center (yellow) section. Cond: 2. SOLD AT $97,200. Don't make the mistake of adding purely for the celebrity value; the real value here is in the fact that it is an actual pace car and not a replica. Had it been a replica pacer in this condition, figure the value at a little bit more than a third of the bid price achieved #45.2 1999 OLDSMOBILE SILHOU- tinted glass.

Rupert Banner, newly-appointed head of Christie's Motor Cars division after the departure of Miles Morris and Malcolm Welford, was pacing the floor like an expectant father. The two cover lots didn't sell. The Type 55 Bugatti, the last example of 38 built, was a very legit machine with only some modifications to the doors, but died on the vine at $1,527,400 versus an estimate of $2.1-$2.8 million. The 1969 Porsche 917K, winner of the Sebring 12-hour race in 1971, looked ready for some serious historic racing work but bidding stopped at $1,654,770. Estimates ranged from a low of $2 million to a high of $2.3 million for this U.S.-sourced consignment–counting against it was that it was a shop-worn piece, having been offered around the market for quite some time without takers. Christie's - Paris, France should they have estimated the poor old thing at such unrealistic levels, $82k - $94k. #27-1939 BENTLEY 4 1/4 LITER DHC. SIN B160MR. Eng. #Y6BP. Black/blue leather. RHD. Odo: 62,245 miles. 4-sp. Vanvooren coachwork. Flawless restoration on a ravishingly beautiful car; simply gorgeous inside The belle of this particular ball wasn't French, Italian, or even German, but a magnificent example of the prewar Derby Bentley. This 1939 4-1/4-liter MR-series car carried an exquisitely designed Vanvooren drophead coupe body and was restored exactly right. If you wanted to add the best kind of Derby-built car to your Bentley portfolio this was the one to have. It soared to a new auction record for non-W.0.-era Bentleys by selling for $485,457, including premium. and out. Cond: 1. SOLD AT $485,458. World record for a Derby Bentley but i f a Derby car was ever worth the money, this was the car Exquisitely designed and executed; a delightful combination of Continental flair and superb British mechanicals. Simply the best. #12-1964 ASTON MARTIN DB5 coupe. S/N DB5/ 1469/ L. Eng. #400/1446. Light blue/grey leather. Wire wheels, period-correct 8-track player. Very good paint, doors and panels; badly detailed engine bay, incorrect Looking at sales, the numbers were just adequate, with half the cars finding new owners (after counting four post-block deals). But in terms of revenue Christie's did quite okay, as enough of the big-time consignments lived up to expectations and contributed the bulk of the $3 million-plus total, which includes its basic buyer's premium. The auctioning itself, in French, was fast and efficient. In fact, as the sale drew toward the end and bidding noticeably flagged, some of the cars were knocked down at nosale very quickly, without even the pretense of a chandelier bid to keep interest going. Christie's Motorcars next big effort on the continent will be a new auction venue at the venerable Le Mans 24-hour circuit during the historic races in July.—D.B. Retromobile's huge attendance gives Christie's the opportunity to expose the auction cars to a vast potential audience, but it's clear many of the visitors come simply to gawk. The auction itself attracted about 200 registered bidders plus a good bit of phone action on certain lots. The selection of cars was a bit of a mixed bag with no real centerpiece attraction or fresh private collection at its core. That, and what appeared to be some cars that had been accepted at unrealistic reserves, contributed to such middling results. A Christie's press release explained the low sales figures away as "selective buying," but it really went much deeper than that. American buyers were effectively out of contention due to the imbalance in the exchange rate (to buy E1.00 cost $1.27). Christie's aggressive buyer's premium combined with French taxes left dealers pretty well out in the cold—the total figure of 20.93% is much higher than most dealer markups on a given car. And while a good selection of Bugattis was expected to bring in the high rollers, four of the six Bugs on offer failed to find new garages. 80  ENGLISH #37-1933 SS 1 DHC. Cream/black/red leather.

Fright pig of the carburetors, rust in chassis. Car looked better than it actually was, according to Aston expert. Cond: 3+. SOLD AT $149,225. Sold for good money considering the defects.

Nor paint, a few chips; fair door fit, rust dimples beginning to show through rear fender beading. Cond: 3. SOLD AT $49,244. Seller did well here. Not nearly as sharp as it looked at first glance.

Lot 17, 1924 Hispano-Suiza Ha cabriolet, sold at $303,799 Premium: 15% on the first $76,000, 10% thereafter (included in prices of sold lots) Report by Dave Brownell Market opinions in italics T To start, the cars are previewed on a floor of the block-square Palais des Congres at Porte Maillot, at the end of the Avenue de la Grand Armee near the Bois de Boulogne. This is essentially a shopping center-cumperforming arts center that's also a convention center and a hotel. The Artcurial offices and galleries are located there and auction cars are shown in two areas near and in between shops, escalators and theatres, making the preview not unlike a car show in a shopping mall. he French are known for having a different approach and this holds true for Maitre Herve Poulain's vintage car auctions. As we noted last year in our introduction to Poulain's successful Rolf Meyer estate Mercedes Collection auction, most everything about the Artcurial sales is different from what U.S. buyers are accustomed to. With total sales just crossing 50% of the offerings and a gross of $2,127,568 for the night, Artcurial didn't do badly at all considering the auction received next to no publicity in the British motoring press and none whatsoever in America. Of course, with the value of the Euro against the dollar recently, the lack of American bidders is hardly surprising.—D.B. ENGLISH #14-1931 ROLLS-ROYCE PHANTOM I convertible. S/N S 107PR. Blue/alumimun/ maroon leather. Odo: 63,036 miles. 4-sp. Very well if a bit flashily restored from a very good original example. Hard to fault and High sale of the evening went to a 1924 Hispano-Suiza H6B convertible sedan with very attractive coachwork by Erdmatm and Rossi. Painted in a flamboyant combination of yellow and black, it was good for $303,154. Second place honors went to a 1963 Porsche 356 BT6 Carrera 2 that was knocked down for $249,121 after a long bidding contest. But the catalog cover car, a handsome 1921 Hispano H6B phaeton painted a conservative black didn't make the grade, despite a high bid of nearly $225,000. Christie's catalogs at its Retromobile auction, which are always bilingual. This auction was also created to take advantage of the crowds coming to Paris for Retromobile. It followed the Christie's auction by a day and packed in a good crowd.

James Young coachwork. Paint bordering on poor, generally tired exterior but with very good door and panel fit, fair plating, very good interior. Straight The selling venue is in an amphitheater in the Palais with comfortable seating and excellent views of the stage. The selling method, as with last year, consists of Poulain calling bids which are immediately echoed by his floor men, who are roaming the audience in search of active bidders. The bids are then called out back to the stage. This school of auctioning seems to work efficiently for Francophones but those lacking fluency in the language had better keep one eye on the board for their own currency quote while bidding. step further by writing the auction catalog entirely in French, with one or two short descriptions in English for certain cars they think might have appeal to the Yanks and "rozbifs", as the French sometimes call their neighbors across the Channel. This serves to make bidding and buying that much more difficult for the untutored, in contrast to 86 Artcurial carries their Gallic loyalty one old car that needs a shave and shampoo. Cond: 3.

Market Reports The average price of the cars sold was well under $10,000, so there was no mistaking the wet cold of Washington for the ranfled high-buck air of Arizona.—C.B. ENGLISH Silver Auctions Puyallup, Washington February 7-8, 2004 Auctioneers  Number of lots  Number of lots sold:  Sales rate:  ale TOME  High Sale:  Mitch Silver and Bob Graham 106 48 48% Nou,o/ Lot 10100, 1937 Chevrolet hardtop, sold at $46,725 Premium: 5% (included in prices of sold lots) Report by Carl Bomstead Market opinion in italics The cars consigned did not follow any particular pattern, though they were certainly eclectic, ranging from a brand-new Chevrolet SSR pickup to a Yamaha motorcycle that was converted to a three-wheeler with a tiller for steering and throttle. The SSR was a no-sale and the Yamaha went for just $1,100, which pretty well tells the story of the event, with the stuff that did sell being on the cheap side, and the expensive lots going home with their consignors. At 48%, the sale rate was lower than most Silver Auctions, though that was hardly the fault of Mitch and his color man, Ed Bishop, who worked the cars as hard as could be expected. Those in the auction tent were just not in a buying mood. Concern for future employment at Boeing may have had something to do with it, or perhaps the offerings just didn't mesh with their desires. Regardless, hands (and money) stayed in pockets and bidding numbers were well hidden. 92  he Corvette and High Performance Swap Meet, held at the Western Washington Fairgrounds about 30 miles south of Seattle, is the area's first event of the year. It gets car guys to thinking about the sunny days ahead when they can enjoy their collector cars. Of course, those sunny days are still some months off and the weather in early February is guaranteed not to cooperate. This year was no exception, with rain coming and going on Saturday and cold and overcast skies for the duration. But Mitch Silver and his stalwart crew pitched their tent anyway, and held their second auction of the year. T Paint poor with scratches and bubbles. Rearview mirror broken. Seats have minor wear.

Motobilia / Carl Bomstead Official Endorsement 520 lots were offered, ranging from automotive books and literature to vintage toys, gas and oil items, and automotive art utomobilia Auctions continued its series of semi-annual, straight-up, no-nonsense, no-reserve auctions with an event held on March 13. These happenings always feature a diverse array of interesting and desirable automotive collectibles and Automobilia Auctions is unique in continuing to offer automobilia in a live, stand-alone format, conducted in a traditional manner that encourages personal attendance. Both of its principals, Jerry Lettieri and SCM's own Dave Brownell, are well versed in the field and the offerings presented reflect that expertise. A If the duo has one shortcoming in its auctions, it is in the catalogs, which do not go into great detail and feature only black-and-white photo reproductions. Perhaps recognizing the need to improve on this issue, Automobilia Auctions has recently begun providing a flyer with the more desirable pieces presented in color photocopies. The catalogues do, however, provide estimated value ranges, which have proven to be reasonably accurate. The March affair presented 520 lots ranging from automotive books and literature to vintage toys, gas and oil items to automotive art, and numerous other items like porcelain signs, mascots, badges, and general automobilia. Auction:  Automobilia Auctions, Wethersfield, CT ; March 13, 2004 Highlight: Automobile Club of America Hotel Sign—Lot #087 Estimate: $1,500-$1,750 Sale Price: $2,420 including 10% buyer's premium WOMOBILE cieh OF AMERICA- and pricey. The price paid here was reasonable; by comparison, two plates sold at the Bonhams & Butterfields Quail Lodge auction held in August 2003 made $345 each. Two early Connecticut license plates show that plate collectors are bound to continue amazing us with the money they are willing to part with for rare pieces. A 1905 plate with number 871 sold for $2,530, not so surprising considering this was the first year the state issued porcelain plates. Prior to 1905, local governing bodies issued numbers and it was the motorist's responsibility to mount them on their vehicle. A leather plate from that earlier era sold for a surprising $3,630, a disparity that is difficult to explain. It was not difficult to find pieces of interest. Four Royal Doulton plates with different designs were offered, with three selling for $247 and the fourth for $274, including commissions. These are part of a series of eight different transfer print designs that were manufactured between 1903 OFFICIALLY APPOINTED HOTEL ^- and 1913. Collecting these can be a slippery slope, with the acquisition of one piece quickly leading to the need to find more, as the plates were offered in two sizes and the other pieces included beer stems, serving dishes, two sizes of dinner mugs, and flower vases, among others. The larger pieces are both elusive • C 871 1 00 Sports Car Market The most interesting porcelain sign in the auction was a 23- by 20-inch, five-color sign from the Automobile Club of America that announced an "Officially Appointed Hotel," with the group's distinctive logo in the center. During the 1920s, automobile clubs recommended restaurants, garages and hotels, and provided signs that acknowledged this endorsement, for a fee. ACA was one of the earliest automotive clubs in the country, founded in New York in June 1899, and the initiator of a meeting in 1902 that led to the formation of the AAA. The group continued on as a local New York organization until the 1960s. This colorful sign, in very tasty condition, sold for $2,420. The estimate was only $1,500-$1,750, which was light by at least a thousand, though 1 would still call it a fair deal even at three grand. To my eye, the buyer made an excellent purchase, proving once again that in any auction there are both "potatoes and tomatoes."•

Bike Buys / Paul Duchene 1927-1943 Indian Four Matching numbers add $10,000 to $15,000 to value, so watch out for re-stamping just like you would with a Corvette or 'Cuda T here's nothing nobler than a splendid mechanical vision that's a , commercial flop. Think -2 Tucker 48, Cord 812, and just about any Voisin. The Indian 3_ Four fits with this group and `...,--, proves that sometimes if you build it, they don 't come. But --:-.,history has its way of rewarding these efforts: Just try finding a complete Indian Four, even a basket case, for under $20,000. The Four was a prestige motorcycle, costing as much as a Buick when new. It was named for its inline four-cylinder engine, a descendent of the 1911 Henderson. By the mid-1920s, this design had evolved into the Ace Four, but when Ace liquidated, Indian bought the design and promptly installed the motor in its Scout frame for 1927. The DuPont family bought Indian in 1929, and like the ultra-high-end luxury cars of today, the paint options for the Four multiplied. More than 50 different colors were listed by the time the 1934 catalog appeared. The Depression was raging and bikes like the Four were a hard sell. Harley-Davidson had responded by developing its overhead-valve "Knucklehead" V-twin, an engine design that would form the basis for nearly every Harley since. Indian, however, decided to "improve" the Four by reversing the arrangement of its F-head engine, placing the exhaust valves over the inlets. This "upside-down" Four debuted in 1936, the same year as the Knucklehead Model E, but the new Four didn't fare as well, lasting only two years before Indian went back to a traditional valve layout. The Four didn't get the art-deco fenders that most people associate with the marque until 1940, the Perfect Indian Four Owner: Thinks Harley-Davidson missed a bet Fun to ride: Ease of maintenance: Appreciation: Years produced: 1927-1943 Number produced: approx. 5,000 Original list price: approx. $800 SEM Valuation: $40,000- Tune-up/major service: DIY for under $100 Engine: air-cooled, 1265-cc, inline four-cylinder Transmission: 3-speed Weight: 532 lbs.

Asking $1,250,000 for a 400-mile car. 1936 Indian "upside-down - Four same year a plunger rear suspension was introduced to help absorb whatever road shocks couldn't be handled by its huge sprung seat. V-twin Indian Chief fans wail that if only the company hadn't wasted resources on the Four, upside-down or right-side-up, perhaps Indian would have celebrated its centennial in 2001, two years ahead of Harley-Davidson. Indian built the Four until 1943, and 10 years later the long-struggling firm went out of business. Expect to pay $40,000-$50,000 for a nicely restored Four, with basket cases starting around $20,000. Matching numbers are a key issue in price, adding $10,000 to $15,000 to a nice example, so watch out for re-stamped numbers just like you would on a Corvette or 'Cuda. Beware of excessive chrome on 1930sera bikes, a common fault in restorations. Originally, these bikes tended to be tastefully enameled, rather than dipped. The 1938 model is particularly prized for its spectacular red and white gauges. Mechanical weak points include clutch slippage and transmission wear—like the original Mini, the Four's engine oil also lubricates the gearbox. If the chain breaks on a Four, it can bunch up and crack the crankcase, but fortunately these are now being recast. The Indian Four is also being "recreated" by Scottish entrepreneur Alan Forbes, as a new model called Dakota. One was refused entry to the Indian corral at Sturgis last summer—you'll never get invited to Pebble Beach with a reproduction Cord, either. There's no question that Fours are spectacular, even in their marketplace failure. Today they have become a bike connoisseur's collectible, and owning and riding one marks you as someone willing to step outside the Harley norm for something truly special.• 2003 MERCEDES-BENZ 555 AMG Fresh Meat 2003 FERRARI ENZO Real market prices for recent production cars of interest.

Glovebox Notes A brief look at cars of interest that have passed through the SCM stable. *1.1.*** is best 2004 BMW 330C1 SPORT 401011111%ft. Likes: Classic shape; sexy 18-inch alloys; velvety 225-horsepower straight-six; perfect driving position; great steering; straightforward gauges and controls; sturdy, simple appointments. Dislikes: Very firm ride turns punishing with poor surfaces, and small potholes can throw the car off course if hands aren't tight on the wheel; back seats cramped and oddly contoured. Fun to drive: *11** Fun to look at: Ilt** Price as tested: $44,345 Overall ownership experience: **•* Verdict: When the current 3-Series arrived in '99, some panned it as fat and soft. But equipped right, with the six-speed manual and the sport package, you have an entertaining touring coupe with sham reflexes. Just stay on smooth roads. You'll also want to avoid cross-shopping, as you can get more car for the money elsewhere. Of course, it won't be a BMW.—Bengt Halvorson 2004 MAZDA 3 4-DOOR S Just place this collar in a freezer or a cooler with ice for a few hours, and it'll keep you cool for up to two hours at those toasty summer events. Remains soft and flexible even after being in the freezer for hours, down to minus 50 degrees Fahrenheit. Checkerboard, racing-style pattern on one side, stars and stripes on the other. Can also be warmed in hot water or a microwave oven for heat therapy. Price: $9.99. Pegasus Auto Racing Supplies, 800.688.6946, www.pegasusautoracing.com . HERE TODAY, GONE TOMORROW , REMOVABLE PAINT lasovable PaR0 SOO Price as tested: $17,415 Likes: Stiff, sporty suspension; great shifter feel for a front-driver; rev-happy 160-hp motor still has good torque (150 lb-ft). Gripes: Lights on stereo that flash when adjusting controls; cabin illumination screams "econobox;" no limited-slip diff offered; ABS is extra-cost option Fun to drive: ***** Fun to look at: **** Overall ownership experience: ***** Verdict: The most car for the buck that Mazda sells—even counting the RX-8 and Mazda 6. It's also the most fun-to-drive small car, and with the sport package's 17-inch wheels every bit as enjoyable to pilot as a BMW 3Series—at less than half the price—with great handling, plenty of power, and steering feel to shame most other sport sedans. Of course, you won't get much respect from enthusiasts who live and die by rear-wheel drive. But who cares? As the saying goes, "Shut up and drive." —Jeff Sabatini* 102 800.345.1178, www.eastwood.com . B BLOWN Customizing could be less stressful with this new removable paint system. We haven't tried it yet—perhaps a beater project would be a good first test—but this temporary aerosol paint is said to be easily removable with a special aerosol solution. It could be a great way to test the look of permanent paint on rods and customs, or to spray on sponsor logos and car numbers. Clearcoat compatible and available in seven different colors— white, red, green, black, yellow, orange, and blue. Price: $13.99/aerosol can for paint, $9.99 for remover.

Comments With Your Renewals Every magazine has photos of cars on their covers (mostly in ugly perspective due to wide-angle lenses). I prefer the paintings on the cover. Think differently.—Paul Evans, Inglewood, CA. Paul, we are still wrestling with our cover presentation. Our "art" covers didn 't work particularly well on the newsstand, where we are trying to attract the attention of those who don't know us. But without question, some of our "photo" covers have been less than artistically satisfring, to put it mildly. For the next few months, anyway, we are going to stay with photos on the cover, but strive to find those that set us apart from the pack. Of course, it didn't help that SCM and Car and Driver had nearly identical photos of the new Cobra on our covers, provided by Ford Motor Company's PR depart- ment. I e-mailed good friend, E-type coupe owner and editor of Cdr.D, Csaba Csere, and told him that! was glad to see that SCM's budget for cover art had now reached parity with that of his big-time magazine.—ED. Hire Paul Duchene full-time. Keep up the great reporting ethics and sense of humor.—Mike Cottam, Portland, OR I've always been intrigued by the Alpine A110. I would enjoy reading about your opinion of the car.—Jim Morris, Hartland, WA Your Ferrari articles by Apen, Ahlgrim, etc. are on target. Get the 365GTC/ 4!—John Reed, Atlanta, GA enjoying Seti. I've finally got a good idea for improvement. A new profile of cars: "Look Rich for Cheap." You've After all these years of reading and said it before, now you can put all that knowledge about 1980s Lagondas, Silver Shadows, 400is, Jags, etc. to good use. These cars were so expensive 20 to 30 years ago. Now they are all around Camry prices. That's a pitch I can sell the wife.—Sanford Paul, Tustin, CA More entry-level cars, especially British. Some of the auction coverage/ features are a bit pricey for me, Ferraris, 300SLs, etc. Do another $100k dream garage!—Peter Olson, Renton, WA I enjoy your columns on your personal experiences with cars that strike your fancy—the good, the bad, and otherwise.—Paul Pizzo, Tampa, FL How could I not renew after reading Serio's profile of the Lotus Elan bought on eBay? Still have pains from laughing.—Paul Fierberg, Woodbury, CT I would like to see some feature or regular story about "correct" restorations, i.e., what adds/detracts from value, checklist by make/model.—Jos Stoop, Killingworth, CT This is my favorite car magazine. Your editorial wit makes it very special. Keep up the good work.—Paul Wartman, Brookfield, WI the SCM Pocket Price Guide in my purse—now that is a fan!—Janet Street, Tracyton, WA I love your publication, and I carry I appreciate your coverage of the Japanese segment.

counting your time and shoe leather expended in chasing all this stuff down. EBAY MOTORS #2467426739-1948 PACKAFtD WOODIE WAGON. First Bid: $100. Number of Bids: 26. SOLD AT: $6,103. Date Sold: 3/22/2004. The math is a little easi- buddy of mine recently bought a SCOT supercharger to go on his new Ardun engine. ltalmeccanica made these in Italy and they have been known to sell for as much as $6,500. This one had been listed on eBay for four days with a required opening bid of $1,250, when my friend contacted the seller directly and talked him into ending the auction early and selling the piece "offline" at a price that was less than the going rate. A While this was a good deal for my buddy, the transaction raises some issues. First off, there was no commission paid on this sale. Yes, eBay is a big company and in the greater scheme of things this lost fee is just a drop in the bucket. But eBay did its part to put buyer and seller together, and for that it should have been paid. We never begrudge someone making an honest buck here at SCM, and shorting eBay by taking transactions offline is something we don't condone. (Not to mention it's against the rules, and can get you kicked off the site.) The other issue here is that the seller left a lot of money on the table, a further reason to refrain from negotiating sales outside the auction site. In the four days the supercharger was listed, it did not receive any bids because the listing was badly written. It's absolutely critical that you make the description as complete and accurate as possible and put the auction in the correct category. This description said only that it was an Italmeccanica supercharger, and SCOT was not mentioned. Most hot rodders know the latter name but not the former. So when someone showed this desperate seller the money, he grabbed it and ran—to his own detriment. EBAY #2229856691—ROUTE 66 CALIFORNIA ROAD SIGN. First Bid: $29.99. Number of Bids: 28. SOLD AT: $7,877. Date Sold: 3/10/2004. The "Mother Road" touched nine states and was immortalized in our popular culture, both in song and by the popular TV program. For the most part, the road was gone by the mid-1970s, but pieces SUBSCRIPTION INFORMATION Sports Car Market magazine (ISSN #1527859X) is published monthly by Keith Martin Publications, PO Box 16130, Portland OR 97292.

This road sign (complete with cat's eyes) was "borrowed" in the early 1950s; the price paid illustrates just how desirable it is today. EBAY #3663932808—EARLY "TEXETTES" EMBROIDERED PATCH. First Bid: $45. Number of Bids: 3. SOLD AT: $78.77. Date Sold: 3/7/2004. Time was, you would pull into your local Texaco station and the "Texettes" would come running out to clean your windows. This patch was part of the Texette  R E uniform, not a lot of money for /4teler, an interesting and somewhat controversial, in today's politically correc world, piece of Texaco history. EBAY MOTORS #2466932859-1947 CHRYSLER TOWN & COUNTRY CONVERTIBLE. First Bid: $1,947. Number of er here. It still needs everything, but our buy-in is a little less and the restoration costs are not as high, with less brightwork to deal with. But since the Packard is worth less, the end result is ultimately about the same. Unless you do a lot of the expensive work yourself, you're better off finding one already done. EBAY #3667239200—VINTAGE TEXACO BLOTTER. First Bid: $2.50. Number of Bids: 12. SOLD AT: $69.83. Date Sold: 3/24/2004. In the 1920s, Texaco issued a series of 21 different blotters featuring automotive scenes and Texaco products. I had 15 of them and this one now makes 16. I got lucky on this one and only had to pay the going rate, but I was prepared to go higher. When you get close to completing a collection, it's justifiable to pay silly money for the final few pieces—or at least that's what I tell myself. Bids: 26. NOT SOLD AT: $22,500. Date Not Sold: 3/18/2004. Certifiable SCM Fright Pig condition. Let's do the math. Assume you could have gotten the car bought and delivered for 25 grand and it will be worth $100,000 after you finish the restoration. So, all you have to do is rebuild the engine, fix the other mechanicals, do the brakes, repair the holes in the trunk and floorboards, do any other bodywork needed, fix the wood, completely redo the interior, replace the brightwork, install a new top and pay for a respray and you're all set. (Oh, and buy new tires.) If you can do that for $75,000 then you are at break-even, provided you aren't EBAY #3181179283—MARX SUNNY SIDE SERVICE STATION. First Bid: $9.99. Number of Bids: 21. SOLD AT: $450. Date Sold: 3/17/2004. This nice toy service station was complete with the oil lubester and showed only mild wear from play. Condition is the thing with collectibles so this clean piece sold for twice the going rate, well worth it despite having a burned-out lamp in one gas pump globe.• POSTMASTER Send address changes to: Sports Car Market PO Box 16130, Portland OR 97292 CPC IPM Sales Agreement No. 1296205 114 Sports Car Market
