Where Do We Go From Here? s hobbies go, buying, restoring and driving old cars is a harmless—though often expensive—indulgence, far removed from the worlds of global politics and terrorist plots." That was the lead sentence for an article I wrote last month for New York Times, exploring the reactions of the collector car community to the terrorist attacks on America. As our October issue went to press, television screens were filled with horrific images of death and destruction. This month, headlines scream, "US Strikes Back: Cruise Missiles Launched." Will this dark chaos ever end? In this electronic age, we are subjected to a continuous barrage of information. Global events, over which we have no control, permeate our lives. In communications with subscribers all over the world since September 11, including Sam Mann in New Jersey, Giuseppe Tomasetti in Milan, Raymond Milo in Los Angeles, Chip Connor in Hong Kong and Donald Osborne in Manhattan, a common thread has emerged. Our world has changed forever. Osborne, who watched the first World Trade Center tower collapse while standing outside his office in lower Manhattan, said, "We don't On October 27 and 28, the eBay Motors Pacific Coast Classic, presented by Kruse, is proceeding as scheduled. The SCM tour to the Goodwood Revival, which began on September 12, was held, although in an abbreviated format. On the morning of September 11, Ms. Banzer and I, laden with colorful hats, bags and other souvenirs for the tour participants we were to meet in London, were about to go to the Portland Airport. A call from a concerned friend alerted us to the unfolding horror in New York City, at the Pentagon and in Pennsylvania. A day meant to be spent traveling became a day of watching televised images of terrifying explosions and collapsing buildings, over and over again. Fourteen members of the SCM group were already in England, and tour organizer Steve Austin (also stranded in Oregon, and along with us never able to catch a plane to join the group) worked the phones, faxes and e-mails for ten days to make sure that the event continued and those attempting to travel were kept informed of the everchanging situation. The show will go on, but will it be the same? know what a normal life is anymore. So we have to keep doing the things we used to do, and see which ones now feel right." As with our lives, the attacks have had their effect on our hobby. RM's sale at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in Manhattan, scheduled for September 22, was canceled. Aside from the logistical impossibilities of transporting 50 classic cars into Manhattan so soon after the massive destruction, RM's CEO David Gooding said, "Some clients told us it just didn't seem right to be bidding on million-dollar cars so near to where so many thousands had so recently died." The premier cars from the WaldorfAstoria auction have been added to RM's January 18 sale in Phoenix. Bonhams & Brooks reluctantly canceled their sale scheduled for October 12 in Hershey, Pennsylvania, citing reduced airline schedules and anticipated customs delays. Brooks added that the Hershey sale will return next year, along with a new auction to be held in the Northeast during the first quarter of 2002. The inaugural Hershey Auction, presented by Don Williams, Richie Clyne and the Blackhawk collection, also scheduled for October 12, was continuing as planned. A US-based company, they faced fewer logistical challenges than the English-based Bonhams & Brooks. According to Rob Williams, general manager of the Blackhawk Collection, "We have to continue, like the President says." None of us can foresee what the future will hold. Metal detectors at the entrance to the Pebble Beach Concours? Searches of every car entering the green at Concorso Italiano? Security guards posted around the perimeter of Barrett-Jackson? Will we ever again be able to congregate in large numbers without casting a nervous eye around us? Life goes on, and just as with other hobbies, the collector car world will resume its car shows, concours, auctions, swap meets, tours and monthly meetings. Through these activities, in whatever altered form they take, the new daily rhythm of our lives will emerge. It is only through this resumption of normalcy that we will reclaim the simple joys and comforts of everyday life, so long taken for granted, and, seemingly, at the moment, so distant. On the Cover It's Jean Alesi in his 1993 Ferrari F93A Formula One monoposto streaking across this month's cover. Artist Charles Maher calls this painting, titled "Ferrari Fl (Alesi)," a celebration of color and motion and speed. Maher grew up in Florida and received a degree in fine art from the University of Notre Dame in 1968. An independent artist since 1988, he travels to a dozen art shows per year, including those at Amelia Island, Meadow Brook and Pebble Beach. Last year, he created the posters for the Meadow Brook historic races and the Woodward Dream Cruise. The original painting of "Ferrari Fl (Alesi)" has been sold. An edition of 50 signed and numbered prints, created using the Giclee process on canvas, are available at $450 unframed, and $650 framed in wood and with a linen liner. Maher lives in Bloomfield Hills, near Detroit. He may be contacted at 248/851-7560 or via e-mail at cjmaher@mediaone.net .• Sports Car Market

You Write We Read All letters are subject to editing. Please address correspondence to SCM, PO Box 16130, Portland, OR 97292. Fax 503/253-2234, e-mail: mail@sportscarmarket.com Dear SCM: The Monterey Week, as it has now become, is a highlight of the international classic car year. Along with the meetings at Goodwood, the Tour Auto Tour de France, the Liege-RomeLiege rally, etc., Monterey is the place to be in August. I've been fortunate enough to have attended a number of these extravaganzas in the past and, this year at the ever-vivacious Concorso Italiano at Quail Lodge, I managed to drag myself away from admiring all the gorgeous bodywork strolling about amid all the old Italian iron— clearly double-bubble takes on an entirely different meaning in California—and sat down with the audience to watch editor Martin "walk the talk" on the central podium. Having been in the "hot seat" of our little magazine over here in the Old Country for about five years, I'm immensely impressed with his amusing, insightful and authoritative knowledge—lucky fellow clearly never has to deal with the likes of the Rochdale or Alle- gro nutters (nutter: an English euphemism for enthusiast). later conversation with the driver confirmed his aural sensitivity; she'd converted to dual Webers as he'd correctly surmised. ED. admiring a Fiat Abarth. I sat in the sun and joined in the rapt attention and laughter as Martin alternatively described the cars in detail and gently teased the entrants. One very attractive woman drove her Giulietta Spider Normale onto the ramp and Martin got into an intricate discussion about her induction system. I don't know whether he was flirting or showing off, but it was impressive stuff. A I must admit the rows and rows of perfect and very brightly painted Ferraris, Lamborghinis and Panteras are a bit hard to swallow at the Concorso Italian°. But that's the Brits for you: we are generally too poor to have cars in such immaculate condition and those who can, like their cars scruffy and well-used—good old inverse snobbery. This, of course, means we snipe and bitch about all your "trailer queens." In all honesty, we're just envious your weather is so good (in California, anyway) and your cars don't rust or get covered in mildew after a month in a damp garage. Amid all the glittering and rather obvious machines at the Concorso Italiano, a few gems shone through, including a number of interesting Abarths and Lancia Fulvia HFs. Like editor Martin, my motoring background includes Lancias and Alfas, although I have an all-consuming Porsche 356 passion. My car of Comments With Your Renewals Mini-Profiles on cars in the "lower end" (the real drivers) are always nice. But really, your magazine is the best I get out of far too many.

Love the comments on the auctioned cars.—Peter Troost, Troost Monument Co., Oak Brook, IL Please consider covering a "Car of the Month."—B. Hill Douglas, Victoria, Australia Have an index of sales by car as opposed to by auction. That way it's easier to assess recent sales of a model a reader maybe considering.— Harinda De Silva, Palos Verdes Estates, CA. Well have the ability to sort that way in our on-line auction archives.–ED. List regional car shows, meets and similar events.—Edward Collins, Springfield, MA Add a calendar for concours events—major ones, nationwide.— Doug Joseph, Sherman Oaks, CA You are doing a great job! Javier G Vasquez, Carolina, Puerto Rico Do not waste our time on hot rods and motorcycles. Remember what format got you where you are now.— Nicols Petroff, Vermilion, OH Routine articles on maintaining and restoring vintage cars.—W David Hughes, Bixby, OK I own a '67 MGB and have owned Japanese two-seaters. Let's put it to rest, please, they all have souls.— Brian McAdams, Lake Oswego, OR — A great read whether you are a "high-roller" or a "bottom-feeder" (me) in the classic car market. Losing the motorcycles and adding more British is on my wish list — Kevin Cobley, Mount Vernon, WA I am sure you will find a way without me, but I own a '70 RS Z/28 and '70 RS SS 396. I never hear about these cars. Value? Thank you.— Michael Joslyn, Edwardsville, IL How about a secret handshake for subscribers/auction writers, so nothing but nice things will be said about our cars?!— James Sells, Silverdale, WA. Maybe a decoder ring as well, and a special beanie–ED. Keep the humor and don't let the whiners dampen the editorial bite. My favorite monthly read.— David W. J. McGirr, Greenwich, CT I love SCM. For a younger enthusiast who aspires to be a collector, this is a great informational and educational publication.—Jason D. Smith, Cedar Rapids, IA Just about right! — Jim Frisby, Bremerton, WA SCMis great! I can't wait to read it every month! —Chris Marchack, Pasadena, CA All of the columns are great, as are the auction comments.—Chris Rounding, Maple Ridge, Canada You're already perfect. Don't listen to the subscribers who complain about the cover art, it's always terrific!—Alex Giacobetti, Philadelphia, PA Back off on your cute sarcastic remarks. They may offend some readers who might be the owners of that car. Give more info/buying tips on $30k-$70k cars.—Anil Chabra, Shreveport, LA Congratulations on a unique and wondrous publication. It revitalizes the passion I had for sports cars in the '50s and '60s.—Don Edwards, Beavercreek, OH Do profiles on affordable classics. More on Corvettes. Otherwise excellent. My favorite magazine.—Ray Wojszynski, Jr., Pittsburgh, PA If you would just be a little more frank in your commentaries (kidding!).— IL Patrick Bowling, Chicago, Eliminate the stupid Mystery David Hans, Barrington, IL I've thought about this and have come to the conclusion that your magazine is about as good as it gets. Just keep the delicate balance going and don't lose sight of your objectives.

BIKE BUYS 1967 BSA 441 Victor W hen you ride a 441 Victor single, it feels like each explosion in the combustion chamber sends the bike twenty feet down the road. It's a big thumper, pure and simple. Like many British twowheeled machines of this era, the 441 Victor's rugged good looks ooze character in a bulldog fashion. This simple motorcycle has one large cylinder, one Amal carburetor, and starts by kick only. Its gas tank is a beautiful piece of polished aluminum, often accented with a panel of yellow paint. The exhaust pipe is mounted high on the right side, giving the motorcycle increased ground clearance and a sporty look. This scrambler style was popular during the power-to-weight ratio. The factory claimed 29 horsepower. A Triumph 500 twin offered more performance but cost an additional $150 and weighed more. A compression release on the left handlebar lifted the exhaust valve to facilitate starting. Mastering the right combination of choke, throttle opening and kick technique, especially on cold mornings, could be an exhausting task. No-frills BSA thumper late '60s and made the bike suitable for dirt roads and cow trails. B44 was BSA's official model name for the 441. The Victor in the name commemorated rider Jeff Smith's victory in the 500-cc class of the motocross world championship in 1964 and '65. An affordable workhorse, the 441 was light, with a decent Models up to 1967 came with a round finned cylinder. Then the cooling fins were increased in size, creating what are called "square-barrel" engines due to their shape. Watch for oil leaks from the chain case, primary cover, cylinder head and countershaft seal. The Amal concentric carburetor was cursed by many riders for its inherent unreliability. Have a set of Whitworth wrenches handy as they're a requirement for working on this BSA. The successor to the 441 Victor—the 500-cc B50—came along in 1971, but BSA's glory days were winding down as Japanese domination of the market grew, and the brand became extinct in 1973. The 441 Victor is not widely collected today, and beaters are available for $1,000. As with so many bikes, buying a restored one is cheaper than fixing one yourself. Further, it costs little more to restore a Triumph Bonneville twin, which is worth far more when finished.

Ask Mr. Kerb by Michael Duffey Send your collector car questions to Mr Kerb, e-mail: copyed@sportscarmarket.com, or snailmail to Mr Kerb, PO. Box 16130, Portland, OR 97292. Will Parts Fall Off My Elite? Dear Mil Kerb: I have noticed that about once a year a first-generation (1958-63) Lotus Elite crosses the auction block. I think they are beautiful cars, and if the average figure of around $25,000-$35,000 is typical, I think I can afford one. My worry is that they are a typical Lotus. I remember my Elan- and Esprit-owning friends suffering breakdowns, .fires, poor quality components and indifferent dealers. Are Elites good cars? Can they be driven on the street? I ask this because I notice them at many historic races. What about parts and service?—T B., via e - mail Dear Mr. B: Being a mobile testbed for Colin Chapman's view of the state of the art in the late '50s, the Elite has more Lotusness than any car before it and even more than the Elan that came just afterward. What do I mean by Lotusness? It is a combination of clever use of parts borrowed from other cars, light weight and a maddening habit of parts failing because they were almost, but not quite, good enough to do the job. When new, the cars were thrust into a marketplace that had no idea of what special attention a fiberglass chassis or Coventry Climax engine might require. They were also on the market for a year and a half before a shop manual was printed. Predictably, the car and the manufacturer's reputation took a huge hit with the problems that some cars had when new. From simple things like fading paint to big problems like differentials coming loose from the chassis, they did little to bolster the car's image, especially given its premium price of $5,000. Still, the faithful persevered with the car and sorted out the teething pains. The unfaithful sold their Elites and told everyone who would listen why. The cars, when in the hands of proactive owners, seem to do fine. I bought one during the early '80s and drove it every day. They are pretty good vintage racers but I found my streetdriven car to be a comfortable, relaxed cruiser that had good performance for a 1220-cc car. Aside from the interior noise level, it was probably the best Lotus I have ever owned. After that gushing testimonial, let me point out that before I could drive it anywhere, I had to rebush a wobbly water pump and make sure everything was greased and all of the important bits tightened up—and this car had 24,000 miles from new! However, this was the kind of attention that my Sevens and my Europa required so I guess that, in my experience, the Elite is a typical Lotus. I also can't think of a car in the same price range that is as interesting or as pretty. Ownership will require desire, a checkbook and knowing a good mechanic. With those in- 16  gredients, I don't see how your experience would be any different from mine, provided that your car is a sound one. To make sure you get a good one, or can keep one you already own in top shape, do two things: 1) Join Club Elite, 6238 Ralston Ave., Richmond, CA 94805, www. c lub lotus . f9. co . uk/el ite/ and 2) buy at least one of Dennis Ortenburger's books (The Lotus Elite and Lotus Elite: Racing Car for the Road). The club will help you sort through the cars available, help find parts and even connect you with owners in your area. Dear Mr. Kerb: Given the passion that has been stirred up with comments about the "soullessness" of Japanese cars ("You Write, We Read," August 2001, page 14), what are your thoughts on the future collectibility of the 1993-95 Mazda RX-7? It was brought into the US in relatively low numbers and its numbers here are dwindling as they get wrecked, turned into parts cars, or raced in SCCA or NHRA events. These cars are heavily supported by afiermarket tuners and can be kept relatively stock in appearance while getting performance numbers that rival the horsepower output of a 550 Maranello or Porsche GT-2 911 Turbo. Would completely stock cars with no enhancement be more desirable than these enhanced cars, similar to other more mainstream collector cars?—E. W, Folsom, CA Dear Mr. W: When any production car reaches the status of collectible, the most desirable ones are almost always the bone-stock, nearnew-appearing examples. Think about it; given that we are talking about production cars—ones that were produced in the thousands (or tens of thousands)—not all will survive intact and most folks will want the nicest car possible. There are a few cars that qualify as desirable/collectible and need upgrades to be a more useful driver. Cooling and shifting mods on Panteras, or 1275-cc engines in early Sprites are good examples of upgrades that most buyers don't seem to mind. The RX-7 Turbos don't need updating to make them cool, shift, stop or go any better than they do right out of the box. In my opinion, the RX-7 and the Acura NSX are the pinnacle of Japanese road car technology for the US market, and you would think that those attributes alone would vault them into the collectible car ranks. But all the technology, performance and looks that the Japanese supercars possess just seem to make the Euro exotic crowd more resolute in the superiority of their car of choice. I remember a comment by a 328-owning enthusiast. He said, "An NSX will never be a 328." I replied, "You're right, a 328 will never have an alloy chassis and titanium connecting rods." He didn't get my point and it is likely that the marketplace won't either. This probably means that there will be a specific group of enthusiasts who find the looks and performance of the RX-7 Turbo desirable. They like it because it is a cheap supercar. And it's exactly that kind of thinking that is likely to keep the RX-7 cheap, no matter how well it performs. Think of it this way. Let's suppose that a bottle of Gallo Chardonnay (the Mazda) scores 100 points on the Wine Spectator charts, while a bottle of Far Niente (the 550 Maranello), at four times the price, only scores 88. Picture yourself at an Ii Fomaio restaurant, about to order your wine. Do you order the Gallo, explaining to everyone at the table that "it's really a great bargain," or do you order the Far Niente, and bask in the approval of your friends and the maitre d' (and the restaurant's accountants) for having the good taste to buy such a classy wine? The Gallo (Mazda) gets more points, but the Far Niente (Ferrari) will always be more desirable. Dear Mr. Kerb: I read all the letters from guys who have $25,000-$50,000 and wonder which V8 Ferrari to buy. I have less than $10k and want a sports car I have mechanical skills that I would call "medium," I prefer an open two-seater and I am not interested in performance—just open-air fun while on short drives, waiting for parts to fall off (This means that my personal taste runs in the direction of cars from Great Britain.) What are Mr Kerb's recommendations for guys like me looking for British fun at the very low end of the market?—K D., via e - mail Dear Mr. D: I have resided in the ghetto of the market for a good portion of my car-enthusiast life. Yes, I saw my way out of it once or twice but, for the most part, my budget (not my tastes) has gone in the direction of the cheap (bucket) seats. You might think that the funding-challenged are ignored by most of the car collecting planet, but if you thumb through the "parts for sale" sec- Continued on page 33 Sports Car Market

Collecting Thoughts Hooked by Monterey by Kathryn L. Schipper y husband, Steve, a true fanatic who can tell the difference between a Ferrari 308 and 328 at a distance of a quarter mile  (I measured once), dragged me to Monterey for the first time six years ago. I couldn't tell an Alfa Romeo from a Hyundai at point-blank range, but agreed to go because I thought I could spend the weekend shopping in Carmel. Within the first fifteen minutes of the Concorso Italiano, however, I was hooked. We've been back most years since then, and I look forward to it all year. If you go, here's what you'll see: Concorso Italian° Picture a basil green golf course, covered with tomato red sports cars, surrounded by billowing mozzarella white tents, like a giant caprese salad. Crowds of elegantly dressed Italian men and women clutching cell phones, glasses of wine and each other mingle with Germans and Americans. The air is filled with a heady mix of expensive perfume and cigar smoke. The scope of the event is huge. The Ferraris cover an entire fairway, with several large putting greens devoted just to various versions of 308s. The Lamborghini corral is easy to recognize by the dozens of Countaches and Diablos parked in spiral patterns on the grass. My favorite Lamborghini is the Miura, which came in a rainbow of colors with mix-and-match interiors. The Miuras also have a feature that can only be described as cute: a decorative black grille above and below the headlights that looks exactly like false eyelashes. Then there are the oddball cars like the Bizarrini, the Iso Grifo and the truly unfortunately named Iso Rivolta. These cars, mostly from the 1960s and early 1970s, are quite elegant in a sort of Kennedy-era James-Bond way. Laguna Seca Laguna Seca racetrack is a blast of heat, dust and blazing white light, punctuated by the howls of furiously circling racecars. A carnival atmosphere prevails, with lots of dogs, drippy ice cream cones and a midway-like island of vendor tents selling T-shirts, posters and memorabilia. The racing itself is nothing like NASCAR, which to me has all the entertainment value of watching laundry going around in a washing machine. The cars here actually change speed, November, 2001  ■111111111W direction and even elevation. Steve and I like to sit at the start/finish line, a vantage point that offers a lesson in the evolution of the automobile. As the oldest cars come lumbering out of the final turn and accelerate past the grandstand, you can often see drivers reaching outside the car's body to pull a lever to shift gears. Post-World War II racers careen out of the turn, their bodies tilted steeply from centrifugal force, then sway back into position, then seem to squat back on their haunches as the drivers shift them into higher and higher gears as they fly up the straightaway. The more modern open-wheel (Indy 500- or Formula 1-type cars) come around low and flat, and accelerate like rockets. The Auctions On Saturday night, after the races, you can go to a hotel in downtown Monterey to watch one of several auctions that take place over the weekend. Hundreds of people crowd into conference rooms to bid on everything from Avengers-era Jaguars to Gestapoera Mercedes to Pat Booneera Corvettes. All of the cars are actually driven into the conference room and up onto a ramp in front of the audience. After a while the smell of exhaust fumes begins to accumulate in the room, perhaps accounting for some of the more audacious bids. Pebble Beach Concours By contrast with Concorso, the atmosphere at Pebble Beach is far more formal. Visitors park on Seventeen Mile Drive and are taken by shuttle bus to Pebble Beach. A path through the pine woods leads down to the main courtyard for the Lodge. You know as soon as you arrive that you are in Robin Leach territory—the portable toilets flush and have running water, flattering lighting and dispensers of perfumed soap. The cars are displayed on the stunning 18th fairway. Banners flutter in the breeze, yachts rest at anchor in the distance and sea otters patrol near the shore. Almost all the cars are in a breathtaking state of gleaming perfection, as are many of the attendees. I clean up pretty well but I know I'll never achieve the inner serenity that comes from knowing your toenails have been done in exactly the same shade of purple as your handbag or your Avions-Voisin. There's a strong emphasis on big, gleaming, heavy cruisers like Packards and Duesenbergs. Families showing the cars often dress in luxurious period costumes from the 1920s and '30s to match their vehicles, and most bring elaborate picnic hampers. The rest of us tourists have to content ourselves with the fare offered at the concession tents, including two kinds of Champagne, sushi and chocolate-dipped strawberries. In the afternoon the cars are judged and awarded prizes, but I find this uninteresting because the vehicles are all so immaculate and historically significant that competition seems irrelevant. Furthermore, for some reason there are dozens of obscure categories like "Best pre1927 French car with between eight and twelve cylinders." Eventually it all gets to be too much and nothing sounds better than beer and hamburgers at the Hog's Breath Inn in Carmel. Concorso Italiano: an automotive caprese salad As I write this, I am sitting on the terrace of the Nepenthe restaurant in Big Sur, having breakfast before heading back to Seattle. My thoughts revolve around why we keep coming back to this event. I think it is because modern cars are too often designed by committees and focus groups. Manufacturers are so desperate not to offend that they fail to inspire. I come to Monterey to be inspired. I have to see the fascinating, bizarre and wonderful rolling sculptures and the equally fascinating, bizarre and wonderful people who care about them from time to time, just to be sure they still exist. M. Schipper 's first car was a 1977 Chevy Nova. With husband Steve, she now owns a 1997 BMW Z3, a 1992 Mazda 2600i pickup and a 1985 Toyota MR-2.• 17

- Th ANONIMA LOMBAROA FAHRICA AUTOMOBIll Tip() U  Market Review at Buyer's Guide MINI MILANO MM t) N' . 1965 Alfa Giulia Spider Veloce Chassis number: AR390615 Engine number: 21-02355 ntroduced in 1963, Alfa Romeo's Giulia was a much-appreciated improvement on the already superb Giulietta, which itself had been upgraded in 1959 to the 101 series. Comprising mostly detail improvements, the Giulia' s major change was the increase in the engine size to 1570 cc (nominally 1600 cc), accomplished by increases of5 mm in bore and 13 mm in stroke. The 21.7% increase in displacement, and particularly the longer stroke, gave the Giulia solid and relaxed performance that its Giulietta predecessor had lacked. In 1964, the high-performance Giulia Veloce was introduced to the US market. With dual twin-choke Weber carburetors, hotter camshafts and distributors with only mechanical advance, the Veloces delivered 129 hp at 6,500 rpm with great reliability and driveability. The Giulia's solid rear axle suspension gave a high level of handling and responsiveness, totally free of the peculiar, even evil, handling characteristics that plagued independent rear suspension cars of the period. The precisely controlled suspension responded instantly to drivers' inputs and did exactly what its driver expected. The Veloce was one of the period's most rewarding sports cars and a natural for SCCA road racing competition. Many Giulia Spider Veloces found their way directly from the showroom floor to the race track. In those days it was common, indeed, expected, for production class cars to be raced as they came from the showroom with little more in the way of preparation than removing some accoutrements like the spare tire and tool kit. This is one such production racer. It was the 1966 E-Production winner in the SCCA's Northwest Region, driven by Wayne Whittington, and has sat for 15 years before being discovered and lovingly recommissioned to completely origi-  nal condition.

It won third place in the "Retired Race Car" class at  the Forest Grove, Oregon, Concours d'Elegance in July, 2000.  Stripping away the fluff of the auction description, this is a retired  race car that has had, according to the catalog, all its stock parts re-  November, 2001  related to its condition, provenance and rare period hardware from Alfa and Autodelta. You can either regard it as a starter kit for a 100point concours winner, or an untouched piece of automotive history. The healthy sale price of $23,100 (including buyer 's premium) at RM's Monterey auction on August 18, 2001, suggests that it crossed the block as a historic object. In the Giulietta and Giulia era, Don Black, parts manager for Alfa's distributor in the US, actively promoted amateur racing. He offered cash prizes to winning Alfa teams, and cooperated with Chiti and Autodelta to bring factory race cars and parts to the US. He even created a line of high-performance items (with part numbers ending in ZZ) that were exclusive to the distributorship. Many of the ZZ parts were never intended for anything but out-and-out competition on the track. Hopefully, the new owner will be able to find a copy of Black's Competition Advisory Service, a thick manual that gives ZZ parts specifications and detailed technical information about preparing Alfas for racing.

Instead, they seem to have been replaced by a bewildering array of faux-Speed Racer decals and badges, perhaps visual evidence of the seller 's unfulfilled race track fantasies. Fortunately, these are easily removed. The Giulia-series cars are the pinnacle of post-war Alfadom, unfettered by the Federal safety and emissions regulations that eventually degraded the marque from true dual-purpose sporters to quasi-luxury wannabes. There are more dramatic Giulias: the basic drivetrain also powers the TI Super sedan, the GTA and the Zagato-bodied TZ and TZ2 competition cars. None of these models, however are more satisfying overall than the Giulia Spider Veloce, which retained the delicious bodywork of the Giulietta Spiders but eliminated the poor driveability of the Giulietta Veloces. This particular car because of its provenance and unrestored status, deserves to be at the top of the SCM price guide, and should installed after an engine rebuild. Well-preserved, unrestored cars are prove a wise and satisfying investment.—Pat Braden the new darlings of the auctions and this car's desirability is directly  (Historic data and photo courtesy of auction company)• 19

   Quarterly Price Guide La rivista del veloeissimo e del bellissimo The Quarterly Price Guide reflects a retail buying and selling range for cars in very good to near excellent condition-significantly above a "daily driver" and one step below regional concours; a strong #2 on the accepted 1-5 scale, 1 being the best. These values are set by sales activity, primarily in the United States, as well as conversations with owners, dealers and collectors. As condition and history are the ultimate determinants of value, each car must be evaluated according to its own merits. Prices below assume cars with "no stories attached." Years  An automobile priced above our guide is not necessarily overpriced, nor is one priced below a bargain. * Indicates approximate production numbers. # Prod.  Model  22-25 RL Norm./Turismo 25-26 RL Sport/S.

   1958 Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta TdF Chassis number: 0911 GT Engine number: 0911 GT Alif wenty-six-year-old Luigi Tara- mazzo's first success with S/N 0911 GT (one of the most famous and successful ofal I Ferrari racing cars) came shortly after taking delivery in 1958. He brought it home second in class and sixth overall at the Coppa delia Consuma, behind the more experienced Eduardo Lualdi, also driving a 250 GT TdF. Three weeks later, he was the overall winner of the 1958 Mille Miglia, with co-driver Gerino Gerini. (The last true open-road Mille Miglia was held in 1957. The 1958 event was modeled after the Tour de France, with wheel-to-wheel competition on closed circuits.) The duo were consistent leaders from the event start and captured first place overall by 1 hour and 25 minutes, beating the team of Villotti/Zampiero, who were also driving a 250 GT. Tarama7zo continued his string of successes with 0911 GT following the Mille Miglia against intense competition in Italian national championship races. Taramazzo and 0911 GT captured the class win in the important Trentio-Bondone hill climb on July 13, where he finished seventh overall. Only a week later Taramazzo and 0911 GT won overall at the Garessio-San Bernardo. The prestigious and important Coppa Intereuropa, a one-hour timed event, was held at Monza on September 7, the weekend of the Italian GP. On the demanding 4.65-mile Grand Prix course in a race that drew the finest competitors in Italy, Tarama7zo brought 0911 GT home first overall and of course, first in GT class. With an average of 107.2 mph, he was only 13.8 mph off the GT-winning speed of Tony Brooks's Van Wall Grand Prix car. In the Fontedecimo-Giovi hill climb on September 28, Tarama7zo and 0911 captured second overall and first in GT. At the Coppa San Ambrocus at Monza, in another contest with his rival Lualdi, Tarama77o came home second overall and in GT. With this podium finish, he garnered enough points to be crowned the Italian National GT champion— Years produced  Number produced  Original list price  SCMPrice Guide  Distributor cap  Chassis #  Engine #  Club  Tune-up  Web site  Alternatives  This car sold for $ 1.265m, including commission, at the RM Monterey auction, held August 18, 2001. 14-louver comp. $1m-$1.5m; Zagato-bodied $1.5m-$1.75m $1,500 "Standard" TdF $700,000-$900,000; $500 for two Front frame tube Engine rear mount Ferrari Club of America, Box 720597, Atlanta, GA 30358; Ferrari Owner's Club, 8642 Cleta St., Downey, CA 90241 WWW.ferrariclubofamerica.org ; www.FerrariOwnersClub.org 250 SWB, 250 MM one of the most coveted titles in Europe—after a closely contested season. Taramazzo would race once more in 0911 GT before trading the car back to Ferrari. The list of subsequent owners of 0911 GT is extensive until it found a long-term home with author and Ferrari historian John Starkey in the UK in 1980. In brilliantly restored condition, and with an unmatched provenance, 0911 GT must be considered one of the most important vintage Ferraris extant. November, 2001  The 250 GT put Ferrari on the map as the best, fastest and most consistent of the GT racers of its day. Winning the grueling Tour de France in both 1956 and 1957 earned it the popular name of 250 "TdF. " In theory, the 250 TdF was available to anyone with the ability to write a check to the local Ferrari dealerfor $12,000. In fact, the very best cars, with the latest camshafts, pistons and lightweight parts were reserved for the best-known and most talented drivers. Even so, a "mildly tuned" 250 TdF was more than adequate to quickly run away from virtually any competitor of its time, including Corvettes, 300SLs and Jaguar XK 140s. This car had been crashed and repaired during its arduous competition life, and the shape of thefront body is certainly open to some questions as to how true it is to the original shape. Nonetheless, its eyeball appeal, superb provenance and ,first-rate presentation by the auction company helped propel the sale price past expectations. S/N 0911 GT, consigned by a longtime SCM subscriber, was well known to the dealer/broker crowd in attendance at the DoubleTree Hotel. They knew it had been bought just a year ago for less than $1 million. Its 30% jump in value brought a collective gaspfrom those same dealers and brokers, who thought the market for high-end Ferraris might be softening. 1956-59 77 $12,000 The turmoil in the global economy that resulted from the terrorist attacks on America has not be- gun to settle. Whether money will flow from stocks into cars, and whether high-end cars will suffer as those who play in that market turn their attention to other things, is yet to be determined. What is clear; however, is that whichever way the market goes, superb cars with documented histories, like this one, will always command a premium when put in front of the right audience.—Michael Sheehan (Historic data and photo courtesy of auction company)• 23

Sheehan Speaks by Michael Sheehan Which Ferrari for the Mille Miglia? DT he Mille Miglia is the ultimate vintage car event, arid a Ferrari is the ultimate car to drive in it. Which Ferrari to pilot, however, depends on your checkbook and tolerance for pain. First, ask yourself if you want to be dry, relatively warm and comfortable, or if you want to go fast, be wet, cold and dazzle the crowds. My "luxury" choice would be any of the 250 coupes or Berlinettas that qualify for acceptance. The best 250 TdF will cost over $1m today, and a properly sorted one (i.e., not Rodeo-Drive puffed but road-race ready) will offer prodigious power, light weight, nimble steering, adequate brakes and predictable handling wrapped in a package that represents landmark styling. A TdF is one of those friendly race cars that makes a bad driver look good. If your budget is a little more modest, for $150,000 a 250 Boano with period race history has nearly everything that the TdF does, except for the styling. Under the skin, a Boano and a TdF are really the same. And, with the magic of today's technology, a good mechanic can make a Boano go faster than its creators ever dreamed it could. By comparison, masochists can choose a very early 166, 195, 212 or 225 coupe, any of which will immerse the driver in total automotive agony. For starters, you get inadequate brakes, a recalcitrant and noisy gearbox, a weak differential and gearing best suited for a garden tractor. Add a hamster-sized powerplant, extraordinary oil consumption and seats crafted for a deformed Italian midget, and you've got the total picture. The primitive coupes do have a roof, windows that will keep out some rain, defrosters guaranteed to drive you mad and token wipers usable until moisture appears. Your car will always be surrounded by fawning Italians while you are stopped by the side of the road, hood-up, desperately trying to locate that strange whining or grinding sound or fmd the source of all the oil and water that is leaking onto the rich, Italian soil.

You'll find yourself in the rain, dripping wet, freezing and sloshing in a leaky but very expensive (and soon to be rusting) Italian bathtub, all while fighting off terminal exhaustion with fading headlights. The ultimate car for the MM is a 250 TR. Driving one requires only chutzpah and an unlimited checkbook. They are blindingly fast, so you can get through the rainstorm a little faster. And the heat coming off the engine will keep your toes warm even if your nose, cheeks and fingertips are freezing. I drove the MM in 250 TR SN 0732, white with a blue stripe. On a rare warm and sunny afternoon, the Italian crowds went mad at the sight of our pontoon-fendered Testarossa. In the towns, the teeming masses parted as if I were Caesar entering Rome, returning victorious from protecting the Empire. Hearing Italians of all ages shout, "bella macchina" as you speed by, engine shrieking at 8,000 rpm, is an experience that simply can't be replicated. Suddenly, you forget about all the discomforts and revel in the extraordinary experience of driving a legendary race car on the very roads it was born to compete on. •

Etceterini & Friends Market Place 1937 Bugatti Type 57S Atalante Coupe Chassis number: 57501 Engine number: S14 t was Jean Bugatti who had the strongest influence in the development of perhaps Bugatti's greatest ever road car, the Type 57S, which made its first appearance at the world's automobile salons in 1936. Although derived from the wellestablished Type 57, the Type 57S was a radically different car with refinements influenced by Jean. Only some 40 examples ofthe 57S were built and it was claimed to be the fastest production roadgoing sports car in 1936, comparable only to Alfa Romeo's immortal 8C 2900 model. I The significance of the Type 57S may best be judged by the fact that contemporary owners were to include Sir Malcolm Campbell, World Land Speed Record holder, and leading British racing drivers Lord Howe and Lord Ridley who were to choose this model as their favored personal transport. The competition version of the model even took outright victory in the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The Type 57S engine had a capacity of 3,257 cc, identical to the standard Type 57, but featured dry sump lubrication with a lightened crankshaft and high compression pistons. Finding the standard Stromberg carburetor inadequate for the new high-performance specification, Bugatti designed and built their own carburetor. The standard Type 57 featured a dry, single-plate clutch but for the 57S a dry, two-plate clutch was adopted. The Type 57S was perhaps most noted for its distinctive Vee radiator and low chassis design that enabled the car to have an exceptionally low hood line, giving the coachbuilder the opportunity to design sporting bodies that would be extremely low, aerodynamic and elegant. Most customers seem to have decided that Jean Bugatti's rakish Atalante coupe suited the 57S chassis best, and some 20 such cars were built. Number produced  Original list price  Years produced SCMPrice Guide  Chassis number 57501 was invoiced on February 4, 1937. It was to be fitted with a one-offAtalante coupe body by Gangloff of Colmar. Only two Atalantes were invoiced by the factory as chassis and this is one of them. The car's history continues Tune-up/major service  Distributor cap Chassis # Engine #  Club    Alternatives  one of the most original surviving examples. The car has never been restored, simply being maintained to a high standard all its life. The only minor alterations are thought to include the addition of the bumpers and modification to the lights and fuel filler cap, along with a repaint in the 1950s. The original coachbuilder, Gangloff, carried out all this work. 40 in total; 1936-38 20 Atalante coupes $5,500 N/A Plate on firewall Alfa Romeo 8C 2900, Delahaye 135M 142 Berkeley St., Boston, MA 02116 Talbot-Lago Gran Sport, into the 1950s when Fritz Schlumpf of the famous Bugatti-collecting Schlumpf brothers acquired it. This may be the only Bugatti ever to be pried from Schlumpf's clutches as he sold it to a French Canadian, Armand Morin, who was then working in Europe. Morin returned the car to the Bugatti factory in Molsheim for a complete overhaul before using it for a year or two as his everyday transport. By 1962 Morin had taken the car to Washington, D.C. After little further use, the car was laid up and its ownership and whereabouts became unknown for many years. Early in 1994, American Bugatti owner Sandy Greene returned home after a short visit to England and declared a Bugatti Brescia cylinder block in his luggage to US Customs at Boston. In the conversation that followed, the Customs officer mentioned that a man living down his street owned a Bugatti. It was Armand Morin and by pure chance the long-hidden 57S and its owner were reunited with the world of Bugatti collectors after more than 30 years. Having spent a major part of its life unused, this Type 57S is probably November, 2001 Stamped in crankcase American Bugatti Club, $2,000 $400 This car, a time capsule in every respect, is in excellent running condition and is a wellknown and documented car in Bugatti circles. This car sold for $1,707,300, including buyer 's premium, at the Bonhams & Brooks Quail Lodge sale, August 18, 2001. Finding a Bugatti—any Bugatti—that hasn't been messed with over the years is a rare experience. Finding one as untouched and original as this ravishing example is a near-impossibility. Go through a Bugatti Club register and you '11 see notations of engine swaps, body changes, driveline modifications and even transformations into different Types entirely. With Bugattis, this appears to be the rule rather than the exception, due to their racing background with the attendant damage and destruction of engines, World War II and subsequent parts scarcity, the performance upgrades former owners made to many of the cars and amateur coachwork replacing crashed or damaged original bodies. This car had the two elements necessary for the highest value to be realized: impeccable, proven originality coupled with a highly desirable model of the marque. How original was it? It even had its factorysupplied floor mats. All its paperwork from day one was in its file. If ever there was a Bugatti destined for a great collection, this was the car And that exactly where it went, joining a West Coast collection of grand marques like Mercedes, Alfa, Hispano and Ferrari. Was it a bargain? No. Was it an equitable purchase? Unquestionably—Dave Brownell (Historic data and photo courtesy of auction company)• 27

   Lanthorghini / Maserati / Efreferissi Quarterly Price Guide The Quarterly Price Guide reflects a retail buying and selling range for cars in very good to near excellent condition-significantly above a "daily driver" and one step below regional concours; a strong #2 on the accepted 1-5 scale, 1 being the best. These values are set by sales activity, primarily in the United States, as well as conversations with owners, dealers and collectors. As condition and history are the ultimate determinants of value, each car must be evaluated according to its own merits. Prices below assume cars with "no stories attached."

They built nearly 50,000 Bugeye Sprites and hundreds of thousands of MGBs, Spitfires, TR-6s, etc. This creates a nice supply of candidates for purchase and plenty of folks to supply parts to keep them running and looking sharp. Before choosing a car, it might be wise to consider spending less than your budget. The streets are littered with the tales of former enthusiasts who bought restored cars that still needed thousands more spent just to sort out a few things. Try also to avoid very cheap examples of higher end cars. Our esteemed editor could tell you stories about the affordable 330 America that ate his bank account. I recommend a car priced below $5,000.

The roll-up window models have a soft top that operates as well as any British car and, though the doors are a bit small, once you get inside they are more comfortable and roomy than an MGA. If you stick to the roll-up window models, you will get front disc brakes and a rib case gearbox. Further, the later models are often cheaper and they have exterior door handles, a good thing if you are tired of battling with side curtains. Your budget will get you a wide variety of "driver" 1100-cc or 1275-cc Spridgets for prices as low as $3,500. If you get a solid car to begin with, chances are you will only double your investment (i.e., have spent a total of $7,000) by the time you make a driver into a car that actually does drive. Your full $10,000 budget will also get you into a solid MOB. Our once-large US inventory of used MGBs (we were by far the largest market when they were new) was picked over in the 1980s and '90s by an aggressive export market, leaving behind the overpriced and the hopeless. The interest overseas has waned in the last year or so, perhaps making the really good ones more reasonable, while the hopeless cars remain hopeless. I have seen very nice Bs change hands for $12,000. But if you want to hold some money in reserve for the inevitable fixes, you will need some patience to wade through the candidates that are sub-$10,000 to see if any of them inspire purchase.

 Two copies of books, Speedway Auto Racer Company: Schylling Associates Phone: 800/541-2929 Web site: www.schylling.com Size: 141/2-inch diameter track Price: $40 Rating:Nostalgia-bent boy racers ***** Electronic-age kids ** For those who have grown tired of giving their children expensive electronic toys, consider the Speedway Auto Racer. Down to the packaging, this game looks as if it came directly from Grandma's attic—the Little Rascals might have used it in the parlor when it was too rainy for their soap box derby. No computer chips, no wires, no batteries. Just tin and imagination. The game consists of an oscillating race track attached to a central tower, five tin cars and a key. By winding the spring in the long-running motor, the 14 1/2-inch diameter racetrack tilts up and down, manipulating the tiny cars towards a finish unique to each race. Loading the spring past what common sense would dictate adds the element of unpredictability to the races, as cars jump their tracks, crash into each other and then often manage to right themselves for a photo finish. With no complicated parts and no flimsy construction materials, the toy should last a long time. The only real downside to the races is that all four cars on the track rarely move in the same direction at the same time. Some go in reverse while others can't get out of first gear. If you have big-money bets riding on the races, be sure to specify whether you are racing for the forward-most stopping point or the total number of laps achieved by your car. Although Internet-generation kids may head back to the Sims after a few races, in our office the game proved highly addictive to twenty-somethings and up. Like watching rain drops or a tennis match, the races are strangely hypnotic. Buy one, wind it up, then escape to a far-away racetrack with bouncing cars from long ago.

First Among Champions Author: David Venables Publisher: Haynes Phone: 805/498-6703 Size: /0 x 10 inches hardbound. 272 pages. Price: $59.95 Rating: Alfa enthusiasts ***** Casual enthusiasts *** FIRST AMONG CHAMPIONS OEM. copies to Ferrari 1947-1997 Editor: Antonio Ghini Publisher: Haynes Phone: 805/498-6703 Size: 11 x 11 inches hardbound. 408 pages. Price: $95 Rating: Tifosi who believe Ferrari invented the automobile *** Rest of the world ** In honor of its 50th anniversary in 1997, Ferrari commissioned Giorgio Nada to publish a retrospective of its cars and racing successes. A total of 1,000 English copies, and another thousand in Italian assured the collectibility of the 408-page book, which retailed for approximately $295—if you could find one. In 1998, Haynes released the book, minus slip cover, at a considerably reduced price. While the Haynes version certainly does not have the inherent value of the original book, it is a valuable addition to any Ferrari library. The book is divided into two parts. The first section details the design considerations that have contributed to the success of the company; the second is an exhaustive chronology of racing successes. This is a comprehensive view of the Alfa race cars, beginning with Alfa's inaugural year in 1910, and ending with an Alfa-labeled Ferrari engine powering the March 89CE that ran at Indy in 1990. The treatment of the Merosi and Jano cars is especially good: The 159 and its predecessor cars occupy 200 pages of this 272-page book. Appendices include briefportraits of important Alfa drivers, specifications of the most important Grand Prix cars, a list of principal victories from 1920 to 1951 and a bibliography. The title of this book depends on racing victories that go back more than 70 years, and is apt to stir some consternation from Ferrari enthusiasts. Alfa dominated European race courses from 1925 to 1934, and then the immediate post-war period until it withdrew from racing in 1951. The years since have not seen Alfa so dominant, but the halcyon years are still a source of pride (and a frequent, threadbare advertising theme). There is a vast library of books on Alfa, yet Venables has managed to squeeze another significant title onto the shelf. I rate this book with Borgeson's Alfa Tradition (for personalities) and Fusi's All the Cars (for specifications). The Tabucci catalog and Simon Moore's two great volumes complete a satisfying shelf of Alfa lore. Yet, in reading Venables, I'm left yearning for a thorough treatment of the technical details of the great Alfas, on the level of Pomeroy's The Grand Prix Car. Based on his present work, Venables could be just the author to write it.—Pat Braden The fact that this is an "official" factory publication means that it contains many rare photographs and illustrations. It also means dis-information in line with Enzo Ferrari's unique view of the world, which places him and his cars at its center. By glossing over engineering development outside of Ferrari, the "Concepts" section implies that many improvements in race car design, including aerodynamic aids, roll bars and even the over-square engine, are Ferrari innovations. A number of testimonials by drivers from Biondetti and Nuvolari to Alain Prost and Michael Schumacher enliven the text, which is further enhanced by fabulous phantomview drawings from Quattroruote magazine. The appendices provide a quick-look compendium of model specifications, production figures, personalities and racing successes. In all, this is a valuable book about an important automobile company. However, one often needs to read between the lines for a proper perspective: the appendix of Ferrari racing victories reveals that Ferrari has not won an international title since 1983.—Pat Braden• Sports Car Market

While in attendance at a Concours d'Elegance this June, I had occasion to see one of my staff members, Steve Kent, have an epiphany. It was very early, perhaps six-thirty in the morning and we had positioned our two cars, a Type 43 Bugatti and a 1959 Royal Tour Chrysler Imperial on the lawn at the Edsel Ford Estate in Detroit. Duties done, we went in search of coffee, which we found in one of the hospitality pavilions. While sitting quietly, enjoying the misty light of early morning, a magnificent wooden-bodied Hispano Suiza ghosted past the pavilion. Steve froze, cup half way to his ample Edwardian moustache, and his eyes locked on to the polished aluminium and varnished wood of the jewel-like automobile. Steve has always been a car enthusiast and is, in fact, a skilled racing driver as well as a gifted mechanic. He is the kind of staff member that the Guild is always in search of and is fortunate to have in embarrassing numbers. Steve: a devout autophile, but one whose experience up to that point had largely been with the throbbing cacophony of the American eight-cylinder racing engine. The Hispano, with its sibilant whisper, struck a chord within him that was previously unplucked. A look of pure wonder and an instant appreciation for the art of the car as well as the function seemed to overcome him. You will see Steve at many more concours events. Indeed, you will be seeing staff from the Guild at major events from Concours d'Elegance to the Woodward Hot Rod Cruise. That is because before they were craftsmen at the Guild, they were avid and unquenchable enthusiasts whose hearts and souls have long been captured by the siren call of the automobile. These are men with the same passions and interests as you, and to a man they have all dedicated themselves to the arts and disciplines involved in the restoration, customization or creation of the automobile. Wouldn't you rather have a man who has had an epiphany work on your car? As always, we look forward to hearing from you.

ClPfsdiaMA A 1964-67 Jaguar XKE Series 1 4.2 Coupe t the Monterey auctions this year, roadster-bodied Series I Jaguar Etypes that were brilliantly restored were selling for $75,000 to $100,000. Yet at the same auction, a Series I E-type coupe in similar condition sold for less than $30,000. For the motoring enthusiast, as opposed to the investor, this anomaly is one of the great bargains in the marketplace. In 1961, when Sir William Lyons introduced the replacement for the long-in-thetooth XK 150, the E-type coupe was the car on the display stand. It was an instant sensation, recognized by the automotive press as an exceptionally pure form of automotive design. In addition to the graceful body style, the E-type coupe offered a comfortable, leathertrimmed interior, adequate luggage space accessible through a convenient rear hatch, and the ability to cruise all day on the new divided highways at speeds above 100 mph. The roadster was introduced later, with its drop-top coming at the expense of all-weather comfort and luggage space. The coupes, like the roadsters, offered four-wheel independent suspension under the monocoque body. The engine was easy to work on because the entire nose of the car tilted forward. The rear suspension was assembled in a single unit that could be removed to service the inboard disc brakes and other components. Most Jaguar aficionados believe that the Series I E-types are the quintessential version tor cars are rarely driven in bad weather, and seldom on long trips. Because of this, the driving enthusiast who really wants to use his car can come out on top. The coupe is really a better car in every way than the roadster, except that you'll have to use a blow dryer to muss your hair, and go to a tanning booth to singe your skin. The coupe's chassis is more taut, resulting in better handling, and no roadster soft top, no matter how well fit, will ever equal the weathertightness of a closed car. Spend less, get more. of this sleek sports car. Between 1961 and 1967, a number of improvements were made to the car without changing the elegant styling. In 1964 the original 3.8-liter engine was upgraded to 4.2 liters and the engine was modified to improve cooling. The flat floor and minimalist seats were changed to provide better interior comfort. The dash trim, originally pebbled aluminum that rapidly lost its new look, was replaced with vinyl. Sadly, in 1968 the covered headlamps and triple SU carbs were lost to zealous US regulators when the Series II E-type was introduced. So why today does the coupe sell at such a discount to the convertible? The answer is that most of us buy our hobby cars for sunny weekends, show fields, and short cruises. Our collec- Because of the low market value relative to the roadster, the E-type buyer should be especially careful to buy the very best example that can be found, with particular attention paid to body condition. The hood is especially vulnerable to damage, and expensive to get right if it needs repair. Mechanical problems are less critical, but if the clutch has to be replaced, the entire drivetrain has to be dropped to get to it. Overall, if you don't need a top that goes down, this coupe may be the best bargain in the sports car market.—Gary Anderson • Years produced  Number produced  SCM Price Guide  Tune-up  Distributor cap  Price new  Chassis #  Engine #  Club  Alternative  Web site  1964-67 7,770 $23,000430,000 $300 $45 ID plate on center of firewall $5,625 Jaguar Clubs of North America, c/o Nelson Rath, 1000 Glenbrook, Anchorage, KY 40223; 888/258-2524 www.JCNA.com Stamped on engine block above oil filter Porsche 356 SC coupe WORLDWIDE Collector Car Insurance Colonel Bally - First Generation 36  Sports Car Market

Little did we know as we basked in the Midwest sun that just two weeks later our world would be turned upside down by the terrorist attacks on our country. EBay / Kruse's Fall Auburn extravaganza is perhaps the quintessential "All-American" gathering of car enthusiasts. Families come from hundreds of miles around to kick tires, eat pizza and drink fresh-squeezed lemonade. Cindy taught Alexandra to drive a golf cart; I sampled a fried gator sandwich. We took all of these pleasures for granted as we watched nearly 1,400 cars cross the block. But now that Labor Day seems very far away, and shrouded in the mists of a less complicated era that we may never get to visit again. It's too early to tell the effects of the attacks on the financial or the emotional side of the collector car market. The Price Guides published in this issue reflect thoughts and opinions gathered after the Monterey weekend but before the September tragedies. Short term, we expect to see the velocity of the high end market slow significantly. No matter how wealthy one is, a million dollars is a million dollars, and spending that for a car at the moment might not seem prudent. On the other hand, we expect to see sales of cars under $50,000, especially American muscle, stay strong. Not only do these cars provide an affordable escape from a reality that none of us really understands as of yet, they also make a patriotic statement that seems appropriate in the current environment. The world at large, and our little segment of it, the collector car market, are entering uncharted waters. Let's all hope for the best.–ED. SCM 1-6 Scale Condition Rating 1: National concours standard/perfect. 2: Very good, club concours, some small flaws. 3: Average daily driver in decent condition. 4: Still a driver but with some apparent flaws. 5: A nasty beast that runs but has many problems. 6: A non-running car in wretched physical condition that is probably only good for parts. 38  CLASSIC CARS RM Auctions Meadow Brook Hall, Rochester, MI August 4, 2001 uctioneer: Peter Bainbridge Number of automotive lots: 64 Number of automotive lots sold: 33 Sale rate: 52% Sale total: $4,522,300 High: Lot #37, 1934 Duesenberg Model J Walker-LaGrande convertible, sold at $1,980,000 including buyer's premium Buyer's premium on sold lots included: 10% Report by Dave Brownell Location photos by Dennis Adler Market opinions in italics n previous outings at Meadow Brook Hall, RM Auctions had always enjoyed a very strong sales rate, even persevering through a vicious windstorm that nearly took down the auction tent two years ago. This year, however, it was the winds of economic uncertainty in the US that affected sales. It had also been feared that a boycott of the Meadow Brook Concours called for by a dissident group of former concours supporters and officials might hurt both concours and auction attendance but, happily, this was not the case as both events attracted healthy crowds. RM's overall sale rate squeaked past the 50% mark and, despite a higher-than-expected number of no-sales, the dollar volume remained robust thanks to most of the high-buck offerings selling for satisfying levels. The mood in the tent was no different from that of most RM events, so it's likely the sale rate was lower than expected due to some over-ambitious reserves. The cars available were a very good crosssection for most every automotive taste and pocketbook, including many US classics led by the ex-Bill Goodwin Walker-LaGrande J Duesenberg convertible. A familiar sight at Auburn-Cord-Duesenberg events for many years, this stunning drop-top was just beginning to show a bit of age on its restoration. That didn't prevent it from climbing to nearly two million bucks before the hammer fell, though. An excellent selection of seven Packards from the '20s and '30s were consigned, with four of the seven finding new owners. Cord, Chrysler, Mercedes-Benz, Pierce-Arrow, Lincoln and Stutz nameplates rounded out the classics along with another Duesie, this one a J Willoughby limousine in admirable original condition. RM is known for some great sports cars in their auction lineups, but this time there were fewer than usual with only a couple of Jags, an MGB, a Healey and a lone Ferrari to be had. Instead, American muscle and postwar Yankmobiles abounded, including big-block Chevys, Caddy convertibles, some all-steel Chryslers (and a half-timbered one), plus several Corvettes. The fact that the centerpiece cars sold for their expected high levels indicates that the old adage about never going wrong with the best still holds true among collector cars, as well as fine art and other desirables. Market weakness was most noticeable in the special interest sector where cars like a Fiat Jolly, Kaiser Virginian, '65 T-Bird convertible and Crosleybased Skorpion roadster failed to sell. As reported in the previous issue ofSCM, RM made a strong recovery at Monterey later in August by holding the most successful of the major auctions during Pebble Beach week, so any possible disappointment RM might have felt about the Meadow Brook results was probably quickly put behind them.—D.B.

It would have been quite a fair buy at somewhere between the low and high estimates of $15k-$25k This bid was just too low, especially given the condition of the car #25 1977 MGB Roadster.

A few parkinglot dings in side trim, otherwise the car looked - Catalog stated that more than $65,000 had been spent on restoration by XKs Unlimited, with only 600 miles since. Cond: 1. SOLD AT $55,000. XK 120/140 coupes are climbing steadily in value, as this car showed. Price was enormous, really, but reflective of the quality of the restoration.

Chrome wire wheels. Fresh repaint, factory hard top, mileage believed combo. Cond: 2+. NOT SOLD AT $155,000 Disc brakes and hard top should add at least five grand to the car 's value. High bid simply wasn't enough. Low estimate of $180,000 would have been more like it. #41-1968 MERCEDES-BENZ 600 LVVB Pullman Limousine. SN 10001612001024. Dark blue/maroon leather. LHD. Odo: 29,787 miles. Tired-looking car with lots of dings on . NOT SOLD AT $9,000. Rubber ducky nose and jacked-up ride height doesn't help market appeal.

AACA points in national Jaguar club competition. Still shows very well in all areas. Cond: 1-. NOT SOLD AT $69,000. A totally fair bid Great Etypes are $60k-$70k cars; it takes the fever of the auction arena to bring much more. The next bout of fever won't strike until January in Scottsdale, so this owner has a long wait, a long tow and another consignment fee ahead #39 - 1967 BENTLEY T TYPE Sedan. - S/N SBX2954. Green/gray leather. LHD. Odo: 2,933 miles. Very straight body, excellent door power steering and brakes, AM/FM radio, A/C, power windows. Superb, low mileage, original in all areas. Offered at no reserve. Cond: 1-. SOLD AT $15,950. It would have been grand larceny at the high estimate of $10,000.

A quite clean and correct-appearing SL with recently rebuilt short block. Desirable factory hard top included. Unexciting color 40  Custom wheels, expensive metallic paint job and custom leather interior sets this K-G apart from most, but it's still a Beetle underneath. No reserve. Cond: 2. SOLD AT $7,700. According to the catalog, the winning bid was the cost of the paint job alone. Customized cars are a tough sell—this car might have brought more if restored to pure stock condition.

Older repaint on a very original - Lovely example of the late '30s top-line Packards. Great door and panel fit, excellent interior, but red top boot looked incorrect. Cond: 1-. NOT SOLD AT $130,000. Perhaps 20 grand more would have been right. Estimates of $17 5k-$200k were pretty aggressive. #50 rack. Slightly mismatched wood on right rear quarter, but otherwise gorgeous timber throughout. Windsor chassis means it's no fireball through the gears, but for superb construction and sporty dignity it's hard to beat. Cond: 1 - . SOLD AT $86,900. T&Cs are wallet-busters to restore to #1. New owner was shrewd to buy a car with a two-year-old resto instead #31 - 1947 FORD SUPER DELUXE Convertible. SN 799A1679098. Black/red vinyl and tan cloth. LHD. Odo: 73,053 miles. manual tranny, excellent under hood as well as outside. Zora Arkus-Duntov autograph on dashboard. Cond: 1-. SOLD AT $49,000.

These are Caddy Fleetwoods in terms of coachwork and are recognized as full CCCA Classics. Cond: 2+. SOLD AT $26,400. An economical way to go on the classic caravans in comfort and style. Fair enough price. #56 - NJ! - Ar+ fir . taillamps from '40 Chevy, green leather looked a bit weird.

Slight pitting on some chrome, modern tape deck installed in dash, slushbox tranny. A generally clean and good-looking Caddy. Cond: 2-. SOLD AT $33,000. Scarce body style from war-shortened year Selling price was right, estimates of $45k-$60k were obviously optimistic. #30 - 1947 CHRYSLER TOWN & COUNTRY Sedan. S/N 71000774.

It's fun, it's all - Ameri- can. It's hot dogs and Pepsi and wine that comes in a box. And the more you think about it, the more you realize that that's a pretty good way to spend a Labor Day weekend.—D.K. ENGLISH CARS eBay/Kruse International Fall Auburn 2001 August 30-September 2, 2001 Auctioneers: Dean Kruse, Daniel Kruse, Mitchell Kruse, Rod Egan and Brent Earlywine ° Number of automotive lots: 1,368 — Number of automotive lots sold: 807 Sale rate: 59% Sale total: $26.5m High: Lot #1057, 1932 Duesenberg J Le Baron Dual Cowl Phaeton sold at $879,800, including buyer's premium Buyer's premium on sold lots included: 6% Report by Dave Kinney and Gary Hoisington Market opinions in italics by the above and Keith Martin Pr he Kruse hometown sale in Auburn, Indiana, is wrapped around the Auburn-CordDuesenberg festival held each year on Labor Day weekend. It's a huge event, and it seems to grow in scope and size with each passing year. With an economic impact measured by the local press in the multi-million-dollar range, this is an important event not only for the economy of Auburn, but also nearby Fort Wayne, Indiana, where the vast majority of hotel rooms and restaurants are located. Where some auctions thrive on the rare and the unusual, with rules and regulations for acceptance, Auburn is the ultimate "Run what ya brung" big show. Among the nearly 1,400 cars that crossed the block were Pebble-Beachlevel Packards, Cords (both full-sized and 8/10ths), rusty Ford Galaxies and appealing MGTFs. Wildly (and badly) customized Mustangs sat next to Maserati Meraks, and an aluminum-bodied Jeep designed to be dropped by air behind enemy lines in Viet Nam could have been yours as well. Among Ferraris, a nice 1960 250 PF coupe sold for $56,180, while another, lesser 1959 250 PF was passed over at $54,000. A lessthan-perfect 246 GT coupe brought $41,340 and a stunning 1989 328 GTS sold for $54,950. In all, 20 Ferraris were offered, with 11 changing hands. Among Porsches, 15 were offered, including a single 356, with eight selling. A questionable 1979 Euro 930 Turbo coupe brought $19,345 from a very brave buyer. What makes Auburn entertaining is the spice added by the unexpected gems that cross the block. Need an early '90s Caprice Classic 46  4-speed. Sunroof Mediocre respray, incorrect style leather. Dash wood incorrectly dyed a light color. New chrome and tires. Motor and transmission recently rebuilt. Lots of money spent, but on incorrect restoration. Cond: 3. SOLD AT $17,490. Fully priced. Incorrect restos present an interesting set of problems.

Owner was experiencing starting problems prior to driving on the block. Cond: 2. NOT SOLD AT $52,000. A fair offer for a well-done, but not entirely pofect XK 120. For the seller to get more, it will cost more—in repairs, in restoration, in travel and in fees for the next auction. Restorations that have started to go off are a tough sell. #667 - 1951 JAGUAR XI( 120 Fixed Head - Coupe. S/N 679096. Black/burgundy leather. LHD. Odo: 19,302 miles. Cosmetic restoration in 1993.

The problem is this car is very much like a 911SC, except the SC has a bigger motor; more horsepower and is rustproof Even though Carreras of '74'77 are rarer than SCs of '78-'83, it is still hard to pay more for less. #4147 good repaint.

Includes can't pinpoint a single reason why this sale struggled like it did, selling only 31% of the cars offered. Personally, I don't believe the uneasy economy is at fault, and it certainly wasn't for lack of attendees. This was the fourth time the event was held, with an even greater number of bidders and consignors than in the previous years. I destination and $800 interior accent package. Delivery miles only, a brand new car. A production car where supply has yet to catch up with demand. (When it does, how do you spell Prowler?) Cond: 1. NOT SOLD AT $58,000. Yours for almost a $20,000 spill over full retail. Is it worth four Kias to be the first on your block to own the latest retro/heritage design flavor of the month? Well, the part about having four less Kias to deal with has some merit. 60  In my opinion, "It's the cars, stupid." Frankly, the quality of the cars offered here wasn't up to the usual Mecum standard. In addition, while another Mecum event that was planned to be held the same weekend in Puyallup, Washington, ended up being cancelled, there is a growing feeling in collector car circles that perhaps Mecum, in trying to be the next Kruse International, is biting off more than it can handle as an organization. A look at the lots that sold reveals that nice cars in the $15k-$50k range are seeing the most action. But the nice cars were bogged down by a disproportionately large number ofAuction Frequent Flyers that had appeared at several auctions this season alone. The vast majority of them did touch-and-goes as they crossed the block at this sale, just as they have at previous sales. Note to the auction companies and consignors: Bidders can smell a stale car from three blocks away. In addition, several race cars were offered. Generally speaking, race cars just don't do well at auctions. That community tends to buy and sell within their own group, where condition, performance and provenance can be observed on the track before a purchase is consummated. Sports Car Market Report by B.

Cond: 1 - • • • • • • • • The race cars that tend to turn up at auctions are usually the outcasts and "red-headed stepchildren" that don't really fit in anywhere. Mecum is fully committed to this venue for next year. Dana Mecum is a seasoned veteran in this business and the growth of his organization is a testimony to his drive. I believe that once he gets a handle on managing his new auctions, and fine-tunes each, including upping the quality of consignments and being wary of auction-worn, over-reserved merchandise, this sale will do just fine.—B .

The Monthly Digest of Magnificent Motor Cars AC • Aston Martin • Austin-Healey • Bentley • Rolls-Royce • Jaguar • Lotus • MG • Triumph MIGLIS Chassis number: 1E11389 ntroduced in 1961, the E-type roadster proved an immediate success. A timeless design, it had been acclaimed as one of the prettiest sports cars ever built. Designed under the guidance of Sir William Lyons, the car was a longer and lower version of Jaguar's D-type, a car that is widely regarded as the best-looking race car of its time. Arguably the most well-recognized sports car of its era, the E-type had a perfect combination of curvaceous lines and high performance, and was priced economically at $5,595 to boot. These factors helped establish it as an instant hit and its popularity has only grown stronger as a collector car. The evolution of the E-type is well documented. The original 3.8liter model had a lack of footwell space, uncomfortable seats, massive brake fade and an engine prone to overheating. Later 4.2-liter Series I and Series II versions solved many of these problems, with bigger brakes, better cooling and an improved interior. One of the most important updates from a driveability point of view was a vastly-improved fullsynchromesh transmission, replacing the antiquated Moss "crash box" of the earlier cars. The example pictured here is the most desirable of all E-type configurations—a covered-headlight Series I car with the 4.2-liter engine. It has benefited from a comprehensive professional body-off restoration with exceptional underbody and engine bay detailing. The caliber of the restoration is attested to by a recent score of 99.9 in rigorous JCNA judging. The mechanical restoration was performed to factory specifications, with all major components replaced or rebuilt. Cosmetically, a full bare-metal strip and repaint was carried out to concours standards. All brightwork, rubbers, top and interior trim were replaced during the restoration. Finished in maroon with black interior, the results of the restoration effort are striking. This car sold at the RM Monterey auction on  August 18, 2001, for $115,500, including buyer 's premium. Years produced  When one British journalistflrst reviewed the new E-type madster he christened it "the best crumpetcatcher ever devised" Certainly the glorious and say lines of this Jaguar have attracted men and women alike ever since thefirst version was shown to the press in Geneva in 1961. Like the XK 120 that earlier hacl put an end to sports cars with square radiators and cycle fenders, the E-type revolutionized the way enthusiasts wauld think about the way a sports car should look Incidentally, these models are most often referred to by aficionados as "E-types, "following the usage of the European brochures that hearkened back to the racing C-types and D-types.

As to why this particular car sold for more than twice the Sports Car Market Price Guide range, we can only respond: How much is peifection worth? Even Jaguar Club judges could find only the most minor of flaws. Every single bolt, nut and screw is original or matched to original appearance and specifications. The restoration work was such that every seam and panel match is as nearly perfect as the best body and paint man could achieve. In one striking departure from originality, the exterior color of opalescent maroon has been matched to a black interior, when as original the interior would have been beige or dark maroon. Nevertheless, the maroon is a welcome change from the cliche red of many E-type restorations, and is quite pleasing combined with black trim. The bidders either didn't know or didn't care about this issue. All it took was two or three bidders who wanted the best Jaguar on the lot to blow the top off the RM estimate of $80,000-$90,000. The fact that two Series Is sold later in the evening for $75,000 and $93,000 suggests that the underbidders eventually found cars that were nearly as good to take home, and saved enough to pay for several New England 1000 entry fees as well. Further, it is the curse ofevery near-100-point car that to drive it is to sully its restoration, and hence its value. The owner ofthis $115,500 E-4,pe has more of a trophy than a car that can be used This RM trio ofE-type sales may be watershed prices for some time to come. As an aside, these prices provide enough room for most good restorers to make a little money off a project car, so we may see a few more project cars being restored to their former glory in the next couple ofyears—something that simply woudn 't happen when $50,000 was all you could expect for a perfect car—Gary Anderson (Historic data and photo courtesy of auction company) Mr Anderson is publisher of British Car magazine.• 65

PORSCHE * MERCEDES-BENZ * BMW UND ANDERE RMAN Chassis number: 911 360 0093 Engine number: 663 0112 W here two-seat GT cars are concerned, there can be little doubt that the Carrera RS of 1973 stands in good company. Porsche took over in sports car racing where Ferrari left off in the early 1970s. After winning the World Sportscar Championship in 1970, '71 and '72, the FIA swung from Sports-prototypes to more production-based machinery. To be homologated, each manufacturer was required to build at least 500 identical copies. To build the Carrera RS, Porsche took the 2.4-liter 911S and subjected it to a myriad of improvements. The steel bodyshell was lightened by using thinner-than-standard steel for many components. Lightweight glass was used in some cars. The RS Carrera's characteristic "ducktail" spoiler was added to keep the rear end planted at top speed, now some 150 mph. The basic 2.4 S engine was enlarged to 2.7 liters through increased bore and the mechanical fuel injection was recalibrated, but was otherwise just like the 2.4 S, using identical cases, cams, heads and crankshaft. Making its debut at the Paris Motor Show in 1972, the Carrera RS delighted the sales staff as customers found the car so appealing the entire 500-unit production run was sold out. Two additional runs were added plus a handful of race cars, bringing the total production to 1,580. Some 200 of these RSs were lightweights, but the vast majority, such as the example featured here, were equipped with full "touring" interiors and body fittings of the 911S models. These full touring cars were known officially as the RSL, with the L standing for luxury. This Carrera RS was delivered new in November 1972 to a bus driver in Geneva, Switzerland. This proud purchase was his only major possession and he drove it carefully for only 50,000 kilometers (about 31,000 miles) in the next 26 years. In the late '80s, he sold it to an Englishman. Engine #  The third and present owner bought the car in  1996 and commissioned famed Porsche racer Nick Faure to complete a full major service prior to shipping the car to the US. According to the owner. the current mileage of 83,000 tans (52,000 miles) is believed to be correct. The engine and transmission are original to this RS and the spare, tool kit, jack and compressor are provided. The car has Club  Web site  Alternatives  The auction company lists the production number; which is placed on the chassis before it is assigned a serial number; as being 103 2838. In the early days of the 911, the production number was the serial number Starting in 1968, though, the production number became a separate sequence, as serial numbers added codes indicating the car to be a T, E or S. this outcome unknown when the naked bodies were produced. The production number is completely hidden from view and requires removal of the lower knee pad on the passenger side of the cockpit for inspection. As Carrera RSs are easy to fake, inspecting this hidden number is one of the best ways to authenticate a car There is no published list of production numbers; however, the factory will verify individual production numbers for particular cars.

This well-kept Carrera RS sold for $69,300,including buyer 's premium, at RM's Monterey sale on August 18, 2001. Two years ago, this price would have seemed steep. Today, it represents a modest bargain for the buyer With its high degree of originality, this Porsche is a top contender to rise at or above the head of the market. 70  This RS, painted Light Yellow, which has quite a strong green tint to it, looks to be very original. Important touchstones are the full deco strips on the rocker panels and front and rear bumpers, original Recaro sport seats and correct 6-inch and 7x 15-inch Fuchs alloys, rather than the 7-inch and 8-inch sizes that, although wrong for this early RS, are often seen as replacements. The centers of the wheels on this car are bright anodized, which is correct even though the wheel centers were often painted to match the graphics. For any color other than Grand Prix White, the Carrera graphics were an option. Note that these side images are placed too low on this car 's body, indicating they were replaced. The Carrera RS has emerged as one of the most collectible street Porsches of all time. For an early 911 enthusiast, they represent the ulti- mate race-bred street car; in some ways the Ferrari SWB of the Porsche world. Especially for high-speed European vintage events, they are a reliable and adrenaline-filled way to race through the countryside—and perhaps end up with a podium finish as well. The price paid was fair in the current market and it would not seem out of line should this car get resold in the near future for more.—Jim Schrager (Historic data and photo courtesy of auction company.)• Sports Car Market zeod R‘traiteger R Market Review Buyer's Guide 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 Touring

by Jim Schrager A$62k911S rice guides for collectible automobiles are just what they say they are: guides. For shares of stock, you can read the newspaper's financial pages and see exactly how much shares identical to yours sold for the previous day; with cars, their condition and history are the prime determinants  beater could be worth $2,500, while a concours car might bring $40,000. There are no rusty shares of stock. Further compounding the difficulty with price guides is the ever-growing premium that true #1 cars will bring. The difference between a #1 car (perfect in every way) and a #2 car (a very nice car that is probably in better shape than 90% of the cars on the road) often exceeds 200%. For instance, there was recently an advert in SCM for a black/red 1973 911S sunroof coupe, with sports seats, that was described as being in top-flight concours condition. The asking price was $62,500. The current SCM Price Guide lists the same car, in #2 condition, as being worth $16,000-$21,000, plus $1,000 for the sunroof. Is this asking price crazy? No. While $62,500 certainly pushes the envelope of 911 values, it's reflective of the premium that superb early 911s are beginning to command, or at least that sellers hope they will command. This type of price differential between nice and great cars has long existed in the world of 356s. The 911S here, which I am familiar with, has had every nut and bolt, every square millimeter of steel, alloy, leather, plastic and rubber carefully refurbished or replaced. Let that sink in for a moment, then reflect on how hard it is to bring an old car to that level of perfection. Visualize making your trunk perfect, with every painted surface flawless, every inch of rubber molding perfect, the carpet or rubber mat as new, and so on. Imagine that a concours judge, wearing a white glove, will reach around behind the hinges, up underneath the lip of the body, back into spaces you can't even see. Think of the weeks you can spend making sure his glove won't find a stray piece of dirt in the trunk. That's just the trunk, perhaps the easiest part of the car to detail, considering its limited use and protection from the elements. The ultimate competition for a restored Porsche occurs at a "Porsche Parade," the national Porsche Club concours. At this event, cleanliness and correctness are now taken to insane levels. The competing cars, already in pristine condition, arrive on trailers at a preparation area. There they are detailed again, often for several days, as the judging approaches. At this year's Parade (held in Milwaukee, Wisconsin) there was a threat of rain, so serious contenders wrapped their cars in sealed plastic the night before. The cars were then unwrapped and recleaned for hours prior to the 7 a.m. starting time, driven about two November, 2001  miles to the event, and then frantically detailed again until the judging began at 9 a.m. At this year's Parade about 160 people entered cars, only a handful of which were pre-'74 911S sunroof coupes. Given that this is the largest Porsche concours in the country, the scarcity of these cars illus- of their value. For instance, if you had 20 ■11/11111111-1 1965 356 SC coupes lined up next to each other, a rusty trates how limited the market is. This particular '73 911S has not yet been seen at a Porsche Parade and, if properly presented, should be a candidate for a top award in the PCA Restoration Group and perhaps for the highly-coveted People's Choice or Judge's Choice award as well. There is a certain thrill to being the owner of a top-rate car when it comes to national competition for the first time. Having a 911S professionally built to the same level of excellence of the advertised car will cost more than its asking price. I'll spare you the details, but suffice it to say you could easily end up spending more than $100,000. On the other hand, it may take the seller a few months to find the one person who wants a concours 911S and is willing to pay I $62,500 for it. If there are no takers after six months or so, you might see the seller reconsidering his asking price. A complicating factor is that concours cars drop rapidly in value when they are driven. The new owner of the car will either decide to keep the car "wrapped in plastic" and bring it out just for special events or brave the fiscal torture that will come with each excursion as rock chips, oil leaks and mud puddles take their toll. You decide: Pay $100k to make it or $60k to enjoy it. So, the asking price is not unreasonable given what is involved in creating a true #1 car. But finding a buyer at this level will probably not be easy. It can be lonely waiting for the market to agree with you when you are acting as a pricing pioneer, attempting to take the market to prices it hasn't seen before.

r Prom Grand Classics to 2win 3tripes of -Smoking Rubber 1932 Cadillac V16 Madame X Sedan Chassis number: 1400056 he V16 Cadillac was introduced in 1930 during the depths of the Great Depression, and it was a technical success due to its sound design. Sales ofthe new Cadillac V16 were brisk and production had to be stepped up fourfold in the first year. The rarest ofthese V16 models was the Madame X, so named, so the story goes, by designer Harley Earl after watching a play starring Ruth Chatterton in Detroit's Fisher Theater. Ms. Chatterton played the role of Madame X and, after Earl met her backstage, he decided to pay tribute to her by naming the new car in her honor. The Cadillac Madame X models were all built on the 4100 series chassis. What made these cars stand apart from the others was their 18-inch sloped windshield, chrome reveals surrounding the window frames, slim door pillars, suicide doors, trim roof lines and stainless steel moldings in place of paint strips. On a limited number of very exclusive models, the stainless body trim was replaced with inlaid German silver. With the inspiration of Earl combined with Fleetwood coachwork and DuPont's newly developed paint colors, the results were stunning. T Even the engine compartments of the V16s were highly stylized. Owen Nacker's engine was designed to have no visible mechanical components, so all wiring was completely hidden from view and the overall appearance was finished in truly elegant fashion with a polished aluminum block. Naturally, only the very wealthy could afford to own a Madame X, as they cost at least $1,000 more than a comparable V16 and over $2,000 more than a V12. The smooth-running V16 was a very suitable engine, producing 165 bhp at 3,400 rpm and it could propel the car swiftly to 100 mph. This handsome Madame X was originally specially ordered in 1932 for R. S. McLaughlin, the President of General Motors Canada Ltd., and was assembled in Canada. It is one of just five Fleetwood Style 5131 V16 bodies produced and carries body tags 42001X, job 5131, body number 4. True to form, the stylish coachwork is accented with sterling silver belt moldings and fender beads, while the door handles are plated in 24-karat gold. The hood vents are not only chrome plated but engine-turned as well. The McLaughlin car is equally luxurious inside, with beige broadcloth upholstery inset with intricate needlepoint floral patterns in both the front and Number produced  Original list price  SCM Price Guide  Years produced  Tune-up/major service  Distributor cap  Chassis #  Club  E-mail  Alternatives  nearly twenty years ago. The body is straight and the body panels fit correctly, while the paintwork is extremely good. The interior is in excellent condition and appears as new. The engine and drivetrain are in restored condition and the car has been used sparingly since being rebuilt. This car sold for $116,000, including buyer 's premium, at Christie 's Pebble Beach sale held August 19, 2001. Among classic Cadillac enthusiasts, the 1932 cars—particularly the V12 and VI 6s—hold a special place thanks to their superb engineering and exceptional styling. Produced as the Great Depression sank toward its dismal depths, they were a spare-no-expense statement of optimism infused with impeccable quality and flawless workmanship. This car is a rarity among rarities thanks to its one-off features like the silver and gold trim and the exceptional interior touches. Of course, nothing less would be expected for one of the giants of General Motors: Colonel Sam McLaughlin was the founder, spark and spirit behind GM Canada, and was highly regarded on both sides of the border $5,945 N/A P.O. Box 1916, Lenoir, NC 28645; phone 828/757-9919, fax 828/757-0367 cadlasl@twave.net $500 each (two required) On frame near steering box Cadillac-LaSalle Club, Lincoln KB, Packard Twelve, Marmon Sixteen rear seat backs. The rear passenger compartment is separated from the front driver's by a dividing window for privacy when desired and twin occasional seats fold out when extra passenger space is needed. The front compartment is finished to typical Cadillac standards with Jaeger gauges with watch crystal dials, while a speedometer and chronometer are located in the rear compartment so one can keep a watchful eye on the chauffeur. Unique to the 1932 cars are the Pilot Ray fog lamps shaped to resemble the main headlights. This exceptional car has been well maintained since its restoration November, 2001  1932 5 $1,800 Prior to its appearance at Christie 's Pebble Beach sale, this car had been part of the wellrespected collections of Jerry Moore in Texas and Dr Joseph Murphy in Pennsylvania. The car had been prepped for auction to a very high standard and had obviously enjoyed excellent care and minimal use since its restoration in the early 1980s. Christie 's had estimated its sale price at between $100,000 and $150,000. 'Oust made low estimate at $100,000 without the buyer 's premium, and that was enough to get the job done. For the money, the new owner has a car that is unique both inside and out; however; this makes it all the more difficult to comment accurately on its value. So, let's theorize that if the car was a sound, unmolested example needing a full restoration, the purchase price plus professional restoration costs to bring it up to its current condition would quite likely exceed the price it fetched at Pebble. Under those circumstances, the car was very fairly bought and should prove to be a satisfring acquisition in both the short and long terms.—Dave Brownell (Historic data and photo courtesy of auction company)• 75

 Sotheby's Motorcycle Sale by Carl Bomstead Motob Object:  Auction: Sotheby's Motorcycles and Bicycles Auction, Chicago, September 15, 2001 Estimate: $1,000-$1,500 Sale price: $6,000, including buyer's premium otheby's motorcycle auction was scheduled to take place just four days after the terrorist attacks on the US. A spokesperson mentioned they had considered canceling the sale but many people had already arrived in Chicago and urged Sotheby's to continue with the event. There is no denying that having the auction so soon after the attacks affected sales. One consignor felt he had "been thrown under the bus" by Sotheby's decision to proceed with the auction. The overall sales rate fell from last year's 69% (69 of 99 motorcycle lots selling) to just 54% (59 out of 109 motorcycle lots changing hands). More telling, the overall total declined more than 50%—from $2,215,600 last year, to $1,023,750 this year—despite there being more bikes consigned. For Sale Aston Martin DBR-1/3 1958 Niirburgring Winner This is a highly detailed historically accurate 1:12th model! However, there were bright spots in this year's event. A 1914 Sears 9-hp, V-Twin, Dreadnaught (Lot #367), sold for $126,750 against an estimate of $110,000-$120,000, a surprisingly high price for a non-belt-drive bike. Unrestored, it still wore its original red and ivory paint, and sat on its original Sears and Roebuck tires. The other notable exception was Lot #350, a 1972 Ducati 750SS Imola, which sold for $121,250, in the middle of the estimate range. The extensive selection of motorcyclerelated memorabilia offered was put together by Leila Dunbar, Sotheby's Senior Vice President for collectibles. Leila previously worked with her father, Howard, at Dunbars Gallery and conducted numerous successful memorabilia auctions before being recruited by Sotheby's.

A Hubley Indian-4 cast iron motorcycle toy— Lot #308—sold for $2,400 against an estimate of $1,200-$2,200.

Charlie Stahl was a Harley-Davidson dealer for many years. While he sold his franchise in the early 1980s, he continued to traffic in obsolete motorcycle parts. Charlie was known for his extensive personal collection of vintage motorcycles, displayed in a recreation of a 1940s showroom, which was complete with display cases full of early motorcycle collectibles. The eyeglasses display was estimated at $1,000-$1,500 but sold for four times that at $6,000. Considering the high-end demographics of current Harley riders, the glasses were probably purchased by a senior executive who trades his pinstripe suit for leathers on the weekend. His pals should look forward to a pair of cool glasses as a holiday present. • r... -  1"7-7-.71" -  ----- Advertise with Sports Car Market and reach the buyers. Call 503/261-0555 x202 .. 77

SCM MARKET REPORT: MECUM Rwu, AMERICA metallic/blue vinyl. Odo: 70,975 miles. Air conditioning. 4-speed. Restoration so fresh that the orange overspray from the engine on the exhaust manifolds hadn't burned off yet. Overall, properly done. Cond: 1. SOLD AT $62,250. Dana worked it for a long time, but once he convinced the consignor (via cell phone) to let it go, it proved a good payday for the auction company, seller and restoration firm. Everybody won on this one. #131 - - Fastback. S/N 67400F9A01800. Red with white striping/black vinyl. Odo: 16,873 miles. 2x4 barrel carbs. 4-speed. Newer radials and undercoated, but otherwise all original. Correct mileage. Minor orange peel in places (just like a Detroit car circa 1967). A few minor nicks in the door edges. Original owner was Bill Neale, one of 01' Shel's pals. Cond: 2+. SOLD AT $66,250. Low miles, superb condition, plus limited production once again equates to buyers not being afraid to open up the big checkbook No one goes home sore over this deal. #155 - 2 - 1969 CHEVROLET CAMARO door Hardtop. S/N 124379N623723. White/ dark blue vinyl. Odo: 407 miles. COPO with the L-72 drivetrain package. 427 c.i., 4-speed. Radio delete. Originally owned by Lamar Waldon race team, but very recently restored (it's still giving off paint fumes). Very minor body panel fit issues, but otherwise hard to fault. Cond: 1. SOLD AT $46,250. A similar car brought $63,600 at Kruse's Fall Auburn event one month later Either this car was a bargain or had sins lurking that the bidders saw and we didn't. #44-1969 CHEVROLET CORVETTE 2-door T-top Coupe. S/N 194379S733744. Medium blue metallic/blue vinyl and nylon. Odo: 67,308 miles. 4-speed, 427 c.i. Non-original intake manifold and distributor. Turbine hubcaps, radials. Corner of driver's headrest tearing. Miscellaneous small paint nicks. Good November, 2001  . NOT SOLD AT $13,000. Owner could've let it go without regrets, since fixes will cut deep into any future profits (or lack thereof). Pull it apart and redo it right to get any better money out of it. Auto, 350 c.i. Aftermarket center console pad, recent replacement windshield. Wiper "door" was always deployed in the up position. Rough idle, seemed to run rich. Paint job had marginal body prep poking out from underneath. Cond: 3 - #156-1971 CHEVROLET CORVETTE 2-door T-top Coupe. S/N 194371S113746. War Bonnet Yellow/tan vinyl. Odo: 7,333 miles. All original car (including paint). 454 c.i. LS-6 engine with M21 close-ratio 4-speed tranny. Even sports the original Wide Oval tires in good condition (although I'd not care to take a road trip on them). Traded out of original owner's estate recently. Cond: 2-. NOT SOLD AT $51,000. Good offer for a good—but not that good—car. Could've sold without regrets. The dealer who offered it got it from the original owner's son in trade 350 c.i. Cracks in rear bumper panel, especially on passenger side. Worn-out interior (door panel armrests cracked, several small tears in seats, dash pad cracked). Sits slightly high in the front. Outside alarm keyswitch. Estate sale. Cond: 4+. NOT SOLD AT $11,500. Reran Saturday to a no-sale at $12,250.Both bids were fair enough for a car with so many needs. And just who is holding out for more money here? Greedy heirs? #140 - 1991 PONTIAC GRAND PRIX NASCAR Race Car. S/N PE 4/91. Day-Glo red and blue/black racing seat. Road course dog-dish hubcaps, trim rings and radials. Fresh interior. Accessory chromed export brace and steering-column-mounted Sun tach. A couple of dings and nicks on each door.

Resale Red/tan vinyl and nylon. Odo: 57,215 miles. door and panel fit. Acceptable repaint. Cond: 3-. NOT SOLD AT $13,100.

S/N OF02G166727. Grabber Blue with black striping/black vinyl. Odo: 42,627 miles. Shaker hood scoop, 4-speed, 1967 SHELBY GT500 2 door LT-1 engine, 4-speed, air conditioning, trunk rack. Still missing the windshield base trim molding, bubbles in fiberglass. Generally driven hard and put away wet. Cond: 3-. SOLD AT $24,750. A rerun from the Mecum St. Paul sale. This time they dropped the reserve and got surprising money for this farfrom-concours example. #28 - 1975 CHEVROLET CORVETTE 2 - door Convertible. SN 1Z67J5S414794. Banana yellow/tan vinyl. Odo: 85,172 miles. Auto, for a new C5 convertible. We'll see this car again. #5 - 1972 CHEVROLET CORVETTE Con- vertible. S/N 1Z67L2S525867. Gold/brown vinyl interior. Black top. Odo: 58,221 miles. car for King Richard for two years, then for his team until 1997. Wears 1997 bodywork and paint scheme. Turn-key, ready-to-race condition, set up for Watkins Glen. Cond: 3+. NOT SOLD AT $55,000. Now starting to fall out of spec, it almost has to wait to become vintage race eligible to be worth any more. 81

eWatch W e ran across a few examples this month on eBay where the sellers must have flunked Basic Selling Skills 101. One guy was trying to sell a 1978 308 GTB with a required opening bid of $33,000. He claimed you would double your money by detailing the engine compartment. Question for seller: Why didn't you do it and get $66k for what is a $30k car on a good day? The best line, however, was that he did not want to be bothered by "petty questions." Result: no petty questions, no petty bids, no petty sale. Another seller offered a program from this year's Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance with a "Buy it Now" price of $150. His justification for the absurd number was "I was there and you were not!" and "I hung out with Jay Leno and you didn't!" As ex- N pected, no one cared. As also expected, no one bought. A 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4 on eBayMotors was pushed by four bids to $202,100, which was about $100,000 light, and it did not change hands. A 308 GTB—this seller would respond to "petty" questions—moved down the line at a reasonable $25,000 as 13 bids vied for the blue Ferrari. Another interesting piece that appeared while searching eBay under "Ferrari" was a California vanity license plate reading "FERRARI." It required an opening bid of $10,000 and it actually had two bids, but the seller was holding out for more than the final $10,100 offered! If—and that's a big if—the bids were legitimate, then you have to wonder what the seller was smoking to turn down the amount offered. A number of very collectible gas pump globes surfaced on eBay. They were first used as advertising on top of gas pumps in the early teens and continued in limited use into the 1960s. The early globes were one-piece glass and later versions consisted of a metal or glass frame with two glass inserts. The final versions were plastic. Globe values have escalated dramatically recently, as illustrated by the activity that a Gurney globe brought. The attractive globe, with seven colors and the image of a radio station, was used in D.G. Gurney's WNAX gas stations that operated in SI NC LAIR PENNSY MOTO LVAN/A R OIL r by Carl Bomstead single lens sold for $775 at auction, however the 24 bids that pushed this one to $5,100, still not enough for the seller, illustrates what has happened to prices in this narrow market. A TYDOL three-piece globe received 11 bids and sold for $610, a market-correct price, and 12 bids resulted in the sale of a fairly common Texaco globe at $504. High-end gas and oil collectibles continue to out-perform other collectibles. eBay #1187339897—SINCLAIR MOTOR OIL PORCELAIN SIGN. First bid: $1,000. Number of bids: 27. SOLD AT: $5,678.90. Date sold: 9/13/ 2001. The strong final bid is an example of what happens when rarity, condition and subject matter all come together. Sinclair, starting in the late '20s, used the image of a dinosaur as part of their slogan "Mellowed a Hundred Million Years." This sign is one of only a few known to feature Dino on his hind legs. Rare does not always equate to big bucks, but this time around it certainly did. eBay #1184320830—KELLY TIRE 42" PORCELAIN SIGN. First bid: $500. Number of bids: 17. SOLD AT: $11,255.65. Date sold: 9/03/2001. We have commented on a number of Kelly Tire items and were very attracted to this unique single-sided porcelain sign that features Miss Lotta Miles. Once again, there seems to be no end in sight for the pricing of quality signs. If only we'd bought a few more of these a couple of years ago instead of 5,000 shares of soontobegone.com. eBay #1627351647—ROUTE 66 SERVICE STATION. First bid: $34,000. Number of bids: 10. SOLD AT: $35,600. Date sold: 9/13/2001. The Mother Road yielded another landmark as Lucille Hamons's historic service station, inoperable and located in Hydro, Oklahoma, found a new owner. Legend has it that Hamons was a colorful, cantankerous sort who greeted motorists from the Northern Plains states. A few years ago a 1941 until her passing last year. Wonder if Martin Milner and George Maharis ever stopped by in their Corvette? eBay #1183651096—TEXACO MOTOR OIL FOR FORDS HALF-GALLON CAN. First bid: $7.77. Number of bids: 13. SOLD AT: $502.99. Date sold: 9/02/2001. Condition commands a premium and that is particularly apparent with can collectors. Unlike cars and signs, cans can't be restored, repainted or touched up.. .they are what they are. When they have survived the ravages of 70 years on the garage shelf and still look like they just came out of the original case, overthe-top sales prices are the result. This is especially true when they are from desirable and collectible brands such as Texaco. So, while selling for over twice what a lesser example would bring, this was not an unreasonable price to pay. eBayMotors #594979504-1986 SPICE GTP BODY. First bid: $2,601. Number of bids: 6. SOLD AT: $3,151. Date sold: 9/08/2001. Pontiac designed and powered several cars to compete in IMSA's GTP-Camel Light class. In 1986 owner Gordon Spice and his partner Ray Bellm co-drove the Entechsponsored Pontiac Fiero GTP to wins on both continents, including Silverstone and Charlotte. This is stated to be the original Kevlar body, designed by Pontiac and built by Spice Engineering, that is in need of a complete restoration. It sold for a tiny fraction of its original cost. Maybe the new owner will turn it upside down and make a sandbox out of it. eBayMotors #595003465—ALFA ROMEO 2000 SPIDER HARD TOP. First bid: $500. Number of bids: 12. SOLD AT: $1,920. Date sold: 9/09/2001. These tops, which fit both 2000 and 2600 Spiders, are hard to find. No one really uses one today, as most driving is done on sunny days. But they make the perfect finishing touch for a concoursbound car.•
