Shifting Gears by Imtut Martin Legends in Kentucky illf atching Formula One Champion Phil Hill tinker with the handbrake assembly on a 1929 Bentley three-liter open tourer was like being at a rehearsal in Manhattan while modern dance choreographer Martha Graham fine-tuned her ballets. Graham had an instinctive understanding of how to put a dance together for maximum artistic and intellectual effect. Hill, after a lifetime devoted to racing and restoring motorcars, can tell after a moment behind the wheel what a car needs to put it right. Bentley Motors Limited invited a group of journalists to Knoxville, Tennessee to drive their new four-door Arnage Red Label and two-door Continental R, along with four vintage Bentleys. The Bentley saga is an unusual one. After a brief and glorious history, which included five outright victories at Le Mans, they were taken over by Rolls-Royce in 1931. For the last seventy years, Bentleys, with the exception of the R- and S-type Continentals of the '50s, have been a slightly more powerful, but essentially rebadged version of a Rolls. Now, with their purchase by VW, the stage is set for Bentley to become a world-class, performance luxury car in its own right. No other marque has ever re-emerged from the obscurity of badge engineering. With the resources and corporate willpower of VW behind it, Bentley seems poised to set a precedent. While new cars are not the focus of SCM, we were pleasantly surprised by the competent road manners of the Bentley Arnage Red Label. Far more nimble than its 5,556-1b. bulk would suggest, the 400 horsepower and 619 lb-ft. of torque generated by the 6.75-liter V8 was enough to leave one good ol' boy, who challenged us in his two-tone (primer and Rustoleum) '57 Chevy, behind in a cloud of expensive, $209,000 Arnage dust. Rolls-Royce & Bentley Motor Cars President and CEO for the Americas, the young and enthusiastic Alasdair Stewart, is a man on a mission. His years at Toyota will serve him in good stead if he can bring a Japanese attention to detail and quality to a company that already excels in taste, performance and class. As for the vintage cars, only my long years as a dancer prepared me for the intricate foot and handwork necessary to drive a center-throttle, right-drive, outside hand-brake 1929 three-liter open tourer through the winding roads of the Great Smokey Mountains National Park. The additional Bentleys we sampled included a 1928 4.5-liter fitted with Le Mans replica coachwork, a 1927 Speed Six and a built-up 1926 "hot rod" bored out to seven liters with coachwork by Markham of Reading. Most satisfying was the Speed Six, which pulled like a locomotive in top gear, and cruised easily at 80 mph. The 4.5- and 6.5-liter cars were brought by Nic and Birte Moller, the 3- and 7liter by Dr. Paul and Barbara Sydlowski. The group included Automobile founder David E. Davis, Car and Driver Editor-at-Large Brock Yates, and AutoWeek Senior Contributing Editor Denise McCluggage, among others. At night, over brandy, Hill, Davis, Yates and McCluggage reminisced about their lives spent in automobiles. Much of the conversation revolved around the tragedies that took so many young drivers; for instance, Hill was making a driver change in the pits at Le Mans when Pierre Levegh's Mercedes hurtled disastrously into the stands, killing himself and more than eighty spectators. Hill and McCluggage recalled Lou Brero Sr.'s Chevroletpowered Maserati competing in Hawaii, and a broken halfshaft splitting the gas tank. "Poor Lou tried to put on the brakes, and the instant he did, the gasoline just blew up and covered everything in flames," recalled Hill. "He asked me for a cigarette," said McCluggage, "as they slid him, lungs already fatally charred, into the ambulance." She did as he wished. He died hours later. In the surreal auction arena, where vintage racing cars restored beyond perfection change hands for millions of dollars, it is easy to forget the sweat and blood expended by the drivers that piloted them to victory. Hill, McCluggage, Davis and Yates have observed and lived through many of these thrilling and sometimes nightmarish times. Would that they could find the time to collaborate on a memoir, sharing their thoughts from different perspectives, so that their memories are not lost to time. (Additional photos of the Bentley Grand Tour on page 83.) At the recently completed Louis Vuitton Concours in Manhattan's Rockefeller Center, I had the honor of serving as a judge, helping to select four cars for special awards given by primary sponsor Chrysler. A specially outfitted, one-off "Louis Vuitton Edition" PT was auctioned at the Saturday dinner for participants. It brought $110,000, the proceeds going to benefit charity. PT to Paris Ms. Banzer, daughter Alexandra and I will be in Paris next week, driving a PT Cruiser, but one without the Vuitton livery. We'll be visiting subscribers and vendors in France, while discovering just how well America's latest automotive homage to the past, the PT, plays out in the land of baguettes and Bordeaux. We see Peter Collins, Juan Manuel Fangio and Stirling Moss on this month's cover, creating a high-speed traffic jam through the Gasworks Hairpin on the opening lap of the 1957 Grand Prix de Monaco. Fangio, piloting #32, a six-cylinder Maserati 250F (SIN 2528) with a special lightweight chassis, went on to win the race. On the Cover All in a day's work for Phil Hill. At each stop, Hill would walk around the old Bentleys, finding a protruding fender bolt that was eating into tire tread, making suggestions about front steering caster, or suggesting improvements to pedal layout. His calm, thoughtful manner brought memories of a top-flight trainer examining a stable of racehorses, gently running his hand down their flanks, and finding those small things that might be done to allow them to perform better. The painting is by English artist Peter Hearsey, a six-year exhibitor with AFAS at Pebble Beach. Hearsey, after many years of working as an illustrator in London, moved to the Isle of Man where he has been painting now for over twenty years. In the UK, he is best-known as having produced the poster image for the Goodwood Festival of Speed since the event's inception in 1993. The original of "Fl Battle at Monaco" is available. It is 24 x 28 inches, oil on canvas. A limited number of prints, made by the Giglee process of continuous tone printing, may be commissioned in the future.

Overheard Brooks Auctions has merged with Bon hams to create the world's fourth largest auction house. The merger will create a multi-interest international auction company with 200 staff, combined sales of over $110M, and potential for continuing expansion. Bonhams focuses on antiques, furnishings, art and wine among other collectibles, which will complement Brooks' automotive offerings. Brooks and Bonhams have previously collaborated, along with the Doyle auction house of New York, on the web site a rectangular-cut fancy orangy-pink diamond of 9.18 cts. One faction of SCM followers has proposed a "diamond luxury tax" on vintage auto purchases, consisting of one carat per liter of engine of car purchased, for the significant other. For instance, one 250 SWB would trigger a luxury tax of 3 carats. Other factions, especially 427 Cobra owners, are not so enthused by the proposal.• 9 "Supergavel," www.supergavel.com The Mach 5 race car from the Speed Racer cartoon series was transported by Passport Transport for sale at Kruse Auburn; proceeds of the car went to the Children's Safety Network. VJohn Meldon, of J.J. Best & Co., collector-car financing, was searching for an excuse to justify purchasing a collectible car. He has decided that a recently-acquired '69 MB 600 Sedan will be a perfect company car for local transportation to shows. J.J. Best recently had exhibits at RM/Monterey, Hot August Nights/ Reno and Kruse/Auburn. Editor Martin will be the banquet speaker at the Oregon Region of the Porsche Club of America's annual Rain Bonnet gathering, on 11/03/00. He promised not to make any jokes about Wally Cleaver's 914/4, or refer to any of the rearengined models as "air-suckers."

From gentlemen's collector watches to rare pink diamonds, 86% of the 251 lots offered sold for a total of $4.3 million.

11111r Dear SCM: After reading the October 2000 issue, some comments on this and that: On Internet Auctions—from my experience, cars listed on sites such as eBay are fright pigs that the seller can't unload in person, or are vehicles with ridiculously high reserve prices, that again no knowledgeable person would pay, but in cyber land there seems to be access to many more fools than at a live auction. In regards to the report on the RM Monterey Auction, lot #442, a '55 300SL Gullwing, (October, 2000, page 52) sold at $319,000, the comments read "price that hasn't been seen in a decade." I beg to differ. The Gullwing at the '99 Auto Salon in New York sold for the exact same price (reviewed by Mr. Kinney). Maybe the writer meant this decade (2000 on?). Maybe the $300K mark is the market for exceptional 300SLs now, and not just part of the "I've Got More Money Than Brains" Monterey Syndrome? In regards to the Maserati 3500 profile (October 2000, page 57), please tell me which dealers you talked to that have a fully restored example such as this either in their inventory for $19K, or have recently sold one for this price. These are gorgeous, undervalued cars (in my opinion), and I would gladly pay $19,000 for one such as the example described, even with the disc wheels and fuel injection. Maybe that's what they would pay for the car, then sell for $28K.—Peter J. Bowman, via e-mail Thanks for the comments. $300K does seem to be the new benchmark for show-quality Gullwings. On the Maseratis, we inluded the dealer price input as a data point for just how soft the 3500 GT market it. If you had a good one, and needed to sell it in a hurry, those in the trade would be unlikely to pay more than $19,000 for it. —ED. Dear SCM: I see in the 750 cars (Alfa Romeo Quarterly Price Guide, August, 2000, page 26), an addition of 40% for '56-57 Veloces was made. Could you explain or tell the readers what is going on here? Also, I thought the 101 cars started in 1960. I'm aware of the 750 engine being in a 101 body during the 1959 production run.—Owen Hearty, Akron, OH There were just 18 Veloces produced in 1956, and 32 in 1957, as contrasted with 835 in 1958. This rarity, along with the pre-58 cars being eligible for the Mille Miglia, is responsible for the addition.—ED. Dear SCM: Your response to Charles 0. Smith's letter (Septem- 1 2  You Write We Read All letters are subject to editing. Please address correspondence to SCM, 6833 SE Pine Ct., Portland, OR 97215. Fax 503/252-5854, e-mail: mailfl ber 2000, page 12) regarding the proper nomenclature for E-type Jaguars assumed as correct Mr. Smith's assertion that Series III Etype Jaguars were never referred to in the US as "XKEs" because they did not use the venerable XK engine. While Mr. Smith apologizes for "splitting hairs over nomenclature," in fact, he is simply incorrect. As a review of the April 1971 issues of Motor, Motor Sport, Motor Trend, and Sports Car Graphic will clearly reveal, the Brits remained consistent in not referring either officially or in the popular press to any of the E-types as XKs. These same contemporary sources will show that the American motoring press was not nearly so fastidious and referred to all the E-types, including the Series III V12, as XKEs. I do note, however, that the British press could not decide whether it should be Series Three, Series III, or Series 3 and seemed to use all three variants. So much for fastidiousness. Over time, the American press seems to have adopted the British usage, referring more frequently to XKEs as E-types, while some of the British specialist car press seems to be increasingly comfortable in referring to E-Types as XKEs, perhaps as a concession to the continuing enthusiasm for the model in this country.—Gordon Louttit, Manhattan Beach, CA It's not unusual to find two or three different interpretations of model names, sometimes with different spellings, in a single source book. XKE or E-type. E-type or EType. 250 GTE or 250GTE. Jaguar roadster or OTS. The SCM Price Guide acts as our style sheet, and we try in our magazine to be consistent, using the nomenclature we have settled on in the Guide, as our reference.—ED. Dear SCM: You are doing a fine overall job. I enjoy the Auction Reports and the insight on how the car might be shabby even though it looks like a diamond. I would like to see articles on buying a 1957-66 Alfa Romeo in the $5,000-7,000 range. I would like the feature to cover pictures of where to look for rust, what to avoid and generally buying a $5,000 Alfa Romeo Giulietta or Giulia Spider.—An Alfa Romeo Enthusiast in Nevada We suggest not buying any Giulietta or Giulia in the $5,000 price range. You'll have to spend at least $10,000 to find a car that won't financially bleed you to death.—ED. Dear SCM: Can you please clarify the discrepancy that often exists between the prices of auto- mobiles listed in your SCM Quarterly Price Guide and those listed in the CPI value guide? I've read the criteria that's published for both and they appear similar. I also have noticed that there is mutual respect and support between Sports Car Market (SCM) and the Cars of Particular Interest (CPI) publications. I understand that you list prices for cars in #2 condition in your Price Guide. Is it fair to assume that your #2 condition is equivalent to the "Good" category in CPI? Let me illustrate the discrepancy with an automobile, the Ferrari 328 GTB. Your listing for this vehicle has been $35-40K, I believe constant over the last two years. CPI's category "good" listing is $41-52K (rounding the numbers to the nearest thousand). As you can see, the two ranges do not even overlap. The same applies to the GTS model, etc.—E A. Levendis, Boston, MA The CPI values, which we find highly accurate, represent the retail end of the market. The SCM numbers, which are for #2 cars, represent a buysell range. However, that said, we've received several comments on our 328 prices, and are revisiting the issue.—ED. Dear SCM: I don't need an advertisement. I'm returning the complimentary coupon you so nicely sent me. If my wife sees it, she'll ad- gsportscarmarket.com we met, I gave up my candy business and returned to my "day job" of psychiatry (yes, I know...) got married, and now have not only an amazing wife (who is a great driver) but also two wonderful kids, ages 3 and 5. Which means we are all ready to be back on the road—but we need something roomier than a 120. So send me a subscription to SCM (I filled out an on-line subscription) and wish me luck in finding the car that will get us back on the vintage circuit. Hmm. . . maybe a Mk2, or a 4-spot Moggie, or if I'm really lucky, a DB5. Well, probably not the Aston—psychiatry doesn't pay that well!—Harold Ginsberg, via e-mail Perhaps you could become an automotive psychiatrist, helping those buried in restoration projects find peace of mind.—ED. Dear SCM: I recently bought the 1946/47 Stanguellini coupe (Fiat chassis #508C 209 006, Fiat engine # 108C 209 354) with body Info requested on Stanguellini coupe. vertise all of my fright pigs for sale. Thanks anyway.—Name omitted to protect the innocent Dear SCM: I think you give short shrift to many collectible Mercedes models. You jump from the '70s 3.5 Cabriolets to the '8687 16-valve, without a pause. Somebody is totally asleep here! The Guide is quite inconsistent in that, for example, you list line after line of the BMW 3-series, which (in your parlance) are mostly just "used cars." But why the BMWs and not the Benzs? In my long experience, the M-Bs of the '70s and '80s are much higher on the "collectible" list than most of the "daily driver" Bimmers. —SCM survey reply We agree. We are considering eliminating the 3-series,etc. BMW listings to make room for a the beginning of a French car section. Readers thoughts on this?—ED. Dear SCM: You may remember me—my Dad and I drove our gray '53 Jaguar 120 in the '92 California Mille—and I'm happy to say that I'm back in the hobby. Since by Oficina Mott, first registered in Torino under plate #TO 94385 and then imported to Switzerland at the end of 1949, beginning of 1950, for a gentleman called Mr. Cattaneo living in Zurich, Switzerland. I would very much appreciate any kind of information about this car you or your readers can give me.—Claude E Sage, Genolier, Switzerland (fax 011 41 22 989 0660). Dear SCM: I've been a subscriber for a couple of years now, and I must say that your magazine fills a void that has existed with respect to the financial end of the interesting car hobby. As you have asked for input about its layout and content, my suggestion is to leave Sports Car Market exactly as it is. Sports Car Market has an individualistic character that separates it from the rest of the auto publications pack. I also enjoy the brief, subjective articles, and above all the accurate reporting of actual selling prices. To me, this is your most valuable feature in that it truly indicates what's going on in the collector car world.—W.V. Badurski, Shorewood, IL• Sports Car Market

Participants will be part of an exclusive, intimate group that will participate in no-holds-barred discussions of the collector car market as well as hands-on examinations of cars that are going to be crossing the block. Seminars will be held from 10:00 AM to 12:00 noon, Thursday, Friday and Saturday mornings. Located on-site, a different guest speaker will be featured every day, each providing a professional perspective on collecting. After each discussion, there will be ample time for you to ask direct questions about the auction experience. We guarantee you'll get straight answers. How to decide how much to bid. When to walk away from a car. Spotting a great car. The secrets of buying and selling on the block. How to tell if you're being shilled. What to do if a car is horribly misrepresented. All this and more will be discussed in detail. The Field Walk Each day, after the seminar, you can join the well-known "Field Walk", when the group, escorted by Keith and other SCMexperts, will take a "hands-on" look at the cars you are interested in and evaluate them with you. Register Today Space is strictly limited and last year's event sold out quickly.

Ask Mr. Kerb by Michael Duffer Send your collector car questions to Mr. Kerb, e-mail: mrkerb@compuserve.com, or snailmail to Mr. Kerb, 6833 SE Pine Cr., Portland, OR 97215. Ferrari 365: A Truck Next To A Porsche 911 Dear Mr. Kerb: I am coming to you seeking spiritual advice. Yesterday I spent a few hours driving a Ferrari 365 GT 2+2. Metallic ice blue/blue leather, very nice shape, ran well, no smoke at start-up, good synchros, chrome Borrani alloys, new exhaust, no accidents. A decent example with a fair asking price of $38K. I drove my 911 when I went to see this car. The difference in the two cars blew me away. The Ferrari was like a truck compared to the 911. I'm not at all trying to bash Ferraris—hell, I want one! But my gad, the inputs were all so heavy on the Ferrari. The engine, while sounding like a symphony, was nowhere near as responsive as that of my 911. I drove the 365 for a long time, then very quickly engineered my getaway so I could get in my 911 while my senses were still fresh from the Ferrari. Even thought I drive a 911 virtually every day, I was shocked at how suddenly light and responsive the 911 felt compared to the 365. Am I jaded? How am I so clearly missing the Ferrari's charms? Did 1 just drive the wrong model? Other than the sound and the beauty, nothing seemed special about it.—R.B., via e-mail Dear Mr. B: So you are unhappy that Sophia Loren doesn't look like a German marathon runner? The 365 and the 911, as you now know, are very different machines. The Porsche is responsive to the point of twitchiness, with an engine that revs like it has no flywheel. The Ferrari is a long-legged GT car with ZF power steering that can carry four adults in speed and air-conditioned comfort. Though the 365 GT 2+2 is several steps above a Chevy Monte Carlo with Konis, compared to the 911 it is a large, ponderous car. Remember its nickname, "Queen Mother of Ferraris"? Given that, I have to ask, what did you expect? With 900 pounds more curb weight and a wheelbase 15" longer that the Porsche, the Ferrari does very well with what it's got. But it is not, nor does it pretend to be, a 911. I think that if you want a Ferrari that fits the mold of the Porsche 911, you need to look at the fast two-seaters. You might think that I am talking about a 246 or even a 308/328. However, I really think that if you want a car that feels vastly superior to what you 1 6  now have and that you will still find exciting 10,000 miles down the road, then you should try a Ferrari 348 or 355 on for size. Too expensive? Now you know why I point so many enthusiasts in the direction of Stuttgart when they want a fast, reliable and reasonably priced two-seat GT car. Dear Mr. Kerb: As a younger, twenty-something enthusiast, I wonder how the automobile will evolve in my lifetime. More specifically, I notice the electric cars like the GM EV1 and the gas/electric Honda Insight hybrid being offered, without much comment from the enthusiast community. What is Mr. Kerb's vision of the future?—M.S., Scranton, PA Dear Mr. S: My vision of the future was formed in the early '60s when my older brother and I found a box of old magazines. They were mostly issues of Popular Mechanics and they all dated from the mid'50s. Between the covers of those musty magazines were stories like: "How to make a motor scooter out of washing machine parts" or maybe "How to make your own Geiger counter." But the really interesting part to me were the watercolor renderings of the future of all things mechanical. Just about everything was nuclear powered and most of the cars looked like a Ghia Supersonic without wheels. They didn't need wheels because those were flying cars. While turning those waterstained pages, I learned exactly what things were going to be like in 1980, or at the latest, 1990. Now it is 2000 and cars still have wheels. Sure, there are tons of gadgets that the futurists of yore never envisioned (nobody behind the wheel of a flying car had a cell phone) but as it turns out, for me, the car of the future was never built. The reason we aren't flying through the air like Buck Rogers is that your average automobile manufacturer is better at adapting available technology than inventing it. (By the way, imagine the combination airbag/parachute combinations manufacturers will have to come up with to protect the idiots who now talk on cell phones while eating breakfast in their cars. Just wait until they start doing the same thing while flying over our rooftops.) Things like computers and high-impact plastics are examples of technology that has shaped today's cars but was originally designed for other applications. So this leads us to the technology in electric cars. While more sophisticated than a Chevy Vega converted to run on Dcell batteries, the recipe of a battery pack powering an AC or DC motor is still what most electric cars have under the hood. Most hybrid cars are just a simple way to extend the driving range by using an internal combustion engine to run the car part of the time and charge the batteries. The Honda Insight is a variation on this theme, being basically a combustionengined car that uses an electric motor to boost acceleration and improve gas mileage. Anyone who dreams of the entire motoring public going pure electric hasn't considered the need for very large vehicles like 18-wheel trucks; there will never be a practical way to electrify something that big. The only reason why we have electric cars built by major manufacturers today is the California "Zero Emission Vehicle" mandate that requires that 5% of all new vehicles sold in California by 2003 have no emissions. Other states are going in this direction. I think that electric cars make good politics for the average Joe and the average politician. Also, at first glance, they seem to be a pretty straightforward way to reduce pollution. But it's not that simple. Most above-average Joes (and probably zero politicians) know that 60% of the US power grid is via coal-burning powerplants. Proponents of electric cars claim that it is easier to control the emissions of a few hundred powerplants than millions of internal combustion engines. The current batch of EPA regulations are making coal plants retrofit their equipment with things like electrostatic precipitators to limit the amount of particulate matter that they spew forth. The problem is that these ever-tightening EPA standards will eventually make obsolete most coal-burning facilities. The need for new plants that might burn something more expensive than coal will increase energy costs, so when we check the score card of electric vehicles we find: I. They make zero emissions for you but not for someone downwind from the powerplant. 2. They use a fuel (electricity) that is already becoming more expensive, as the oil/coal required by powerplants increases in price. 3. The battery exchange/disposal issue might become a sticky and expensive issue if there are hundreds of thousands of electric cars running around. So what of the automotive future? First, realize that the invention of the automobile didn't cause mass horse extinction. There are probably as many horses around today as there were in 1890, except now they are used for sport and pleasure. So no matter what happens, there will be a place for internal-combustion propelled cars as we now know them. We may have to get a special permit to drive our gross-polluting MGBs out to an "old car range - where we get to rev them up and savor the carbon-monoxide aroma, much as today's trendy cigar aficionados lock themselves into little rooms and imitate WWII destroyers in "make smoke" mode. The cars of tomorrow, while not flying machines with Plexiglas bubbletops, will be lighter and more efficient, both with the energy they consume to operate and the energy it takes to build them. Electric cars will dominate the showrooms when they can be built at a profit and when they make more sense than what they are replacing. From an enthusiast's point of view, the chances are that as soon as the first mass-produced electric cars come out, some tuner like Saleen or Callaway will find a way to make them go faster and stop better. That's just human nature. The above doesn't take into account a new "alternative fuel" for internal-combustion motor cars. This would certainly extend the useful life of our engines but what that fuel might be, I can only guess. Wait, didn't I read an article in that old magazine called "Miracle carburetor runs on water instead of gasoline"? Dear Mr. Kerb: Okay, I have it narrowed down to three open-top cars: a Ferrari 308GTSi QV, Mondial 3.2 Cabriolet, and a Sports Car Market

Lamborghini Jalpa. I would like to spend less than $40K, leaving a bit left over for repairs and maintenance. These three Italian cars seem to excite me more than most others, but for different reasons. Having driven them all, the 308GTSi QV is very nice all around, but at 6' 4" tall, I fear that I am just fooling myself by saying "No problem. plenty of room." The Mondial would allow me to take my wife and three-year-old son along, but is it really a sports car? The Lamborghini Jalpa has room, looks good in a chunky/ funky kind of way and has exclusivity that appeals to me. An added plus is that Al Burtoni's shop is only about a six-iron shot from my home, should I need to limp over. My dilemma here has more to do with the fact the Jalpa appears to be a bit out of favor and unloved by the collector-car and enthusiast crowd. Could you please explain why? Is it really so bad a car that the SCM Pocket Price Guide gives it one star (woof woof). Should I care for any reason other than when I go to sell it I will have to clone myself? Longing for a prancing horse or raging bull has me feeling like moose and squirrel.-K.S., via e-mail Dear Mr. S: Moose and squirrel? Remember when Bullwinkle tried to pull a rabbit out of a hat and a lion's head came out? Does this mean that you should buy a Peugeot? Well, no. But about the candidates on your list. Right off the top, I can tell you that I hope you are looking at one of this trio as a fun car and not something to replace the family station wagon. All are good for a weekend blast, but anything resembling the dayto-day grind of traffic and commuting will likely make you wonder why you bought any one of them. That aside, I can narrow the list to two cars by eliminating the Mondial. Every example that I have seen has had more than its share of electrical gremlins. Besides, the operation of the soft-top mechanism is difficult enough to make me not want one of these cars. Maybe their owners always leave the top up or down, depending on their local climatic conditions. Why do people buy them? Probably, because at $30-35K, they are the cheapest Ferrari ragtop (not Targa top). Your next choice on the price list is the '59-62 PF Cabriolet S2, which will set you back another $100K or so, according to the SCM Price Guide, The QV is a perfectly fine car, especially if you compare it to the two-valve version that came before it. By late '84 the cars had Glasurit paint, 16" wheels and ran as well (or better) than any US Ferrari model since. Sure, the dye rubs off the driver's seat in 18,000 miles and the tread rubs off the tires by about the same time. But overall, a well-maintained QV is a good driver. The Jalpa is one of those cars that could have been better received if a few more people had driven one. With only 410 cars built during its eight-year production span, it is a fairly rare bird. Basically an evolution of the Urraco (and the Silhouette) the Jalpa is a pretty fast car. Its looks, like those of some other Lambos, aren't for everyone. At first glance, the Jalpa has edgy fit-and-finish; the cars seem more like prototypes than production cars. This impression fades when you drive one. The gearchange and the general workings in the cockpit feel much more sorted-out and direct than they do in a comparable Ferrari. So if you want a "driver's car," the Jalpa is it. If you want an exotic that is a "driver," buy the 308QV. If you want blown fuses and a sprained elbow from putting the top up, buy the Mondial.• Take a free test drive. eCarCentral.com Car Collecting for the 21st century BIKE BUYS 1967 BSA A65 Lightning he BSA Lightning was a flashy bike. With metallic red paint, chrome finish on the gas tank, chrome fenders, and gold lettering proc laiming "650 Lightning Power" on the side panels, it was a treat for the eye of any young impressionable male. Back in the '60s, this was the model writer Hunter S. Thompson rode (and reportedly totaled) while doing research for his book, Hell's Angels. The 650cc engine was fed by twin Amal carburetors, like the Triumph Bonneville. Acceleration was brisk to 60 mph. Above that, serious vibration cut into the fun quotient. Consequently, Lightnings are better suited to winding back roads than freeways. BSA Lightnings, raced extensively in the '60s, had a single unit gearbox and engine. They were more oil-tight than Triumphs and the engine design was cleaner, with no external pushrod tubes. 18  rev-counter, as the Brits would have it. Oddly shaped fiberglass side covers bulge out beneath the seat, detracting from the bike's appearance. A 12-volt battery is hidden behind the left panel, with an oi l tank and tool kit on the right side. The motor mounts require periodic tightening, as they loosen due to vibration. The plain bearing on the timing side of the engine wears rapidly. A roller bearing from SRM Engineering in England is a popular update. This bike, owned by Ken Davis fi -om new was restored in .92. The Lightning was fitted with drum brakes front and rear. In 1968, it got a twin-leading shoe, full-width front brake, which are sometimes retrofitted to earlier bikes. Stopping power is marginal at best, especially compared to current disc-braked bikes. An optimistic Smiths speedometer reads to 150 mph, although at anything near that speed, a rider looking down at it would see only a wildly shaking blur. It is flanked by a 10,000-rpm tachometer, or In the market, BSA 650s are overshadowed by Triumph twins, the marque favored by most collectors. The base of enthusiasts for BSA is small, and BSA twins sell for 25% less than equivalent Triumphs. Pre-1971 models are preferred to the less attractive later bikes where the frame serves as the oil reservoir. Other BSA 650 models included the Hornet (a scrambler with no muffler or lights), Firebird (street scrambler), Thunderbolt (single carburetor), and Spitfire (a racer with Amal GP carbs and higher compression). Aside from the rare Spitfire, the Lightning is the most desirable.—Bill Neill • Number produced  Engine  Original list price  $1,364 (1967) Value today (restored)  Frame #  Transmission  Weight (wet)  Engine #  Left side of crankcase below cylinder (matches frame #) Web site .. www.bsaoc.demon.co.uk Perfect Lightning owner ....

MG T's M by Bill Neill yth has it that GIs returning from Europe after WWII started America' s sports car craze. They brought back a spindly-wheeled open car powered by an engine that wouldn't even push a decent-sized lawn tractor today. But now, fifty years later, the MG-TC and the models that followed, the TD, TF and MGA, B and C have a huge following. Rob Medynski's shop in New Jersey, called MG T's, caters both to the T-series cars (1945-55) and the later cars as well. Medynski and his assistant, Pat Runo, take on any kind of work, from full restorations of T-series to fixing minor cooling problems on MGBs. Medynski's goal is to make these classic British machines function as daily drivers. "Changing the rear axle ratios of TDs and TFs from a stock 5.125 to 4.3 allows them to cruise at 75 to 85 mph," he commented. "The way the cars were originally geared, 55 to 60 mph was pushing it." Of course, bringing a TD to a quick stop from 85 mph can be a near out-ofbody experience. "Our work changes with the seasons," said Medynski. "Winter months are taken up with major restoration projects, including paint and body work. In the spring and summer, when people start driving their cars again, our days are filled with maintenance and repair jobs." "When we rebuild an engine, we'll put in a more modern cam and change the timing so that they have more torque," he said. "You want them to be driveable like a modern car." Attention is paid to the designed-in weak spots. For instance, '77-'80 MGBs are converted from electric fan cooling to mechanical operation. Medynski created a mechanical fan kit that attaches to the water pump and runs continuously, eliminating the need for troubleprone heat sensors that trigger the factory electric fan. The unreliable Lucas electronic ignition system on '75-'80 MGBs are often replaced with mechanical points and condensers, requiring a new distributor and coil. Cars with points run as well or better than they did with electronic ignition. "They seem to pass emissions easier than the way the factory sent them out," Medynski said. Medynski has even converted a few MGBs to 3.5-liter Rover V8 power—as the factory did for the English market. While he has adapted a couple of MG V8 conversions with automatic transmissions, "it was so much work that I don't think I'll do one of those again." 20  T models make up about half of MG T's work, with As and Bs filling splitting the other half. Austin-Healeys and Triumphs are fixed as time allows, but MGs come first at this shop. Medynski draws customers primarily from New Jersey/New York, but cars have come from as far off as Florida. Northeast cars are frequently rusty, and he is used to seeing MGBs with no floors or sills. Medynski cuts out the rusted areas and welds in new metal. Critical body repairs on Ttypes, such as around the doors, are made using lead. When necessary, bodies can be renewed completely, using new sheet metal and ash supports from Moss Motors. TDs are the most common of the T series cars he encounters. "People really love these cars," he commented. "We'll come across cars that stopped running thirty years ago, and the owners refused to sell them. They just sit in the garage, all covered up, slowly deteriorating." He has seen divorce cases where the most hotly contested item was custody of the family TD. restored T-types rarely reach the $30,000 mark, with most selling in the $20s. The A and B models are a bit easier, and less expensive, to restore than the T-type. Medynski inherited his obsession from his father, who also owned MGs. "I liked my Dad's cars, and could hardly wait to get one of my own," he said. "But right away I started having trouble with it, and decided right then to try to make it reliable." An unexpected side benefit of owning a car that is prone to coasting to a halt by the side of the road (if not properly set up), is all the new people you meet. "Every MG owner tells the same story. They break down, and people will stop, ask if they can help, and talk about how they had once owned an MG, and wished they still had it." Of course, they then drive off in their warm, comfortable (and running) modern cars. Medynski sold his 1930 M-type for $19,500 in 1999. It was one of the earliest sporting MGs and a predecessor to the T cars. He drove it to Vermont with his son, traveling 750 miles in three days at 60 to 65 mph. "It had no counterbalancers on the crank and no water pump," he recalled. "But we made it without problems." One of his customers has accumulated 385,000 miles on her MGB. To preserve your MG, maintain it properly. As soon as the car needs something, fix it right away. Then the small problems of MG ownership can be caught and repaired before they Pat Runo works on a factory MGB V8.

SCM subscriber Ralph Kamhi Perhaps one reason people put off restoring their MG T-type is that doing it right is expensive. "You can easily put $50,000 into a T-type," Medynski said. A restoration will require 500 to 750 hours of work, depending on the car. This means $20,000 in labor alone, with parts additional. In today's market, fully Frame-off restoration. The previous owner of this MGA got caught by his wife in flagrante delicto. She gave a new definition to the phrase "panel beating." become big ones. "Don't wait until the engine has no oil pressure to make a visit to your mechanic," he said. "By then, you've already passed the point of no return." "I work on everything like it's my own car," Medynski commented. "Somehow MGs have always been my passion. There's nothing better than seeing a restored TD going down the freeway at 60 mph, top down, on a sunny day, with the driver and passenger really enjoying their car." • Sports Car Market

_Ks Market Review at Buyer's Guide La rivista del velocissimo e del bellissimo ANONIMA LOMBAROA FABBRICA ALITOMOBIll Tip° Ls  MILANO /MI N? 1959 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint Zagato Chassis number: AR-10126*00082* ,T , he Giulietta Sprint Zagato echoes the severe tumblehome roofline of the fabulous Bertone BATs and the slanted tail of the same bodybuilder's Sprint Speciale. The BATs, however, were strictly styling exercises and the Sprint Speciales were too heavy to be race cars. It was Zagato that finally filled Alfa's need for an aerodynamic Giulietta coupe that would win races. Two series of the Sprint Zagato were produced between 1959 and 1961.The first series featured a smooth, flowing body that ended in a short, curved trunk. It was markedly different from the second series, which was redesigned to feature a longer but more abruptly-ending tail. Weighing in at slightly more than 1,700 pounds, both iterations of the SZ were excellent performers, given their 1300cc, 100-hp DOHC alloy engine. Sporting all of the best features of the Giulietta, including large, finned drum brakes and lightweight solid rear axle, the aluminumbodied SZ brought an impressive series of podium finishes to both factory teams and privateers. A photograph of the SZ described here, wearing Italian plates, was taken in England in the 1960s. Recent traceable history, however, dates back to 1978, when the car was found in storage south of Milan. At that time, it was missing both doors and its rear bodywork was slightly damaged. In that condition, the car was sold at the Imola autojumble to a Swiss dentist who restored and then campaigned it at club rallies and races. In 1994, the dentist sold the car to Italian auto broker Franco Manetti, who imported it to the US in 1999. The car comes with its original racing seats, rollbar, engine and transmission. Years produced  Number produced  Original list price  This car was sold for $49,500 at the RM Monterey Auction on August 19, 2000. The sale price of this car is double the low auction estimate and reflects both the good condition of the car and its essential desirability. Before the war, the combination of an Alfa Romeo chassis and a Zagato body set the standardfor high-performance, lightweight sport cars.

The Giulietta Sprint Zagato was the result. The original version, sometimes referred to as "the football," had a rounded-off tail that was symmetric with the car 's front bodywork. This was an era ofaerodynamic experimentation, however, and the second style ofZagato bodywork on the Giulietta followed the theories of the German aerodynamicist, Kamm: the "coda tronca" (truncated tail). Before Kamm, the laminar flow of air over a body was maintained as long as possible, resulting in an extended tail which tapers to almost a point. Kamm 's theory was that the extended tail simply prolonged aerodynamic drag, and it would be more efficient to end the laminar flow as early and abruptly as possible. The coda tronca design of the Giulietta Sprint Zagato was carried over to the Giulia TZ and TZ2 cars, as well as the later Type 33 racers. 1957-62 200 Engine bulkhead Intake side of block Lancia Appia Zagato, Simca Abarth Zagato, Fiat Monomille Zagato After the war, that relationship changed. While Alfa was busy assembling 6C 2500s from pre-war parts, Zagato was busy building Fiat Topolino bodies. The 1900 SSZ Alfa Zagato coupe was a consistent hillclimb winner in the mid- '50s, but it failed to rekindle the strong bond between the two firms that characterized the pre-war relationship. The potential big break for Zagato came when the Priolo brothers came to them and asked for a lightweight body on a recently wrecked Giulietta Sprint Veloce. The substantially lightened Zagato-bodied Giulietta proved a potent contender for the brothers, and it was not long before customers began to line up for duplicate lightweight Giulietta Zagatos. Alfa wouldn't supply the pan and driveline, so Zagato was reduced to buying new Giulietta Sprint Veloces at full price, then cutting the bodies off and fitting their own lightweight creations. In spite of the necessarily exorbitant cost, the Giulietta Zagato coupes continued to sell. Finally, the Zagato brothers made their point to Alfa management, and they were 22  Normal Giulietta Veloces need at least 3,000 rpm for getting underway from a stop. Because of its light weight, the Zagato version requires much less throttle. Though most of the Zagato Giuliettas have had a racing history, they are actually quite capable of every-day transport if the owner is so inclined. Unlike the later IRS Giulia TZ, very little fiddling with suspension settings is required to produce a very competitive car. And, since the driveline is virtually stock 101 Giulietta Veloce, replacement parts are not a real problem. In many ways, the Giulietta Sprint Veloce Zagato is the best of all possible worlds. This car was bid considerably over the auction estimate, which was too low to begin with. Pricing balances the car 's positive appeal against the fact that it was not completely original, though most of the pieces to make it so came with the car. The lack of pre-1978 history besides a photograph (how do they know it is the same car?) is troubling; one can even today order a replica SZ body from Galbiati's shop. At nearly $50,000, however, this was a fair enough deal for everyone involved Its hard to name another car that combines such performance, practicality, rarity and charm.—Pat Braden (Photo and data courtesy of the auction company)• Sports Car Market

Quarterly Price Guide La rivista del velocissimo e del bellissitno 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 e valuated according to its own merits. Prices below assume cars with "no stories attached."

FERRAR Chassis number: 0844 Engine number: 0844 (412 P3) i ii, he P3 was a logical and comprehensive evolution ofthe 1965 model P2, still a tubular frame but now, in P3 form, riveted- on alloy panels and the fiberglass undertray were both bonded to the chassis to increase torsional rigidity. An allnew, four-cam V-12 engine was developed for the P3, now fitted with Lucas mechanical fuel injection. This would be the first time that Weber carburetors were not fitted to a works Ferrari sports racing car. Twin ignition via two distributors and four coils rounded out the powerplant, which produced a claimed output of 420 horsepower at 8,200 rpm. The P3 was fitted with what is recognized as one of the most pure and beautiful bodies ever created for a competition Ferrari. Built by Brazilian Piero Drogo's Carrozzeria Sports Cars in Modena, it was much lower than a P2 at 37.4 inches high. Because of labor disputes in Italy, only three P3s were ever built, compared to five P2s built the previous year. 0844's first race outing was in the 1,000 Kilometer sports car race at Monza, where Mike Parkes was partnered with John Surtees. The pair led from start to finish in what was mostly a wet race. For the Spa-Francorchamps 1,000 Kilometer race, Parkes drove again, this time partnered with Ludovico Scarfiotti. During the race, Parkes set a lap record of 139 mph and despite facing a horde of Ford GT40s, 0844 trounced the opposition again. Le Mans 1966 was a battle of the titans. Ford entered no less than eight of the seven-liter GT40 MK Hs. For the first time, three P3s were to be run, two of which were officially NART entries, but for all intents and purposes they were managed by SEFAC Ferrari, the factory team. In the race, Maranello's squad of P3s paled with the industrial might of Detroit's eight seven-liter Fords, as did their four-liter engines, nearly half as big. 0844 was sold to Luigi Chinetti's North American Racing Team for 1967. The first race in 1967 for 0844 was Daytona; the new P4s dominated the race, placing first and second. The new P4 was still a four-liter car but now featured a threevalve cylinder head. This extra breathing helped the P4 to produce 450 hp, 30 more than the P3. The sometimes unreliable ZF transaxle was replaced with a Ferrari-built unit; other major changes were a shorter wheelbase and wider track. The last year's P3s were updated to the wheels and uprights of the P4, these converted cars are called "412P." 0844, driven by Pedro Rodriguez and Jean Guichet, completed Ferrari's domination in third place. In perhaps the most recognized triumph in Ferrari history, the three cars staged a formation finish which has been depicted in numerous paintings (see Dexter Brown's rendition on the cover of the October, 1998 SCM). Year produced  Number produced  Original list price  SCM Price Guide  Tune-up/major service  Distributor cap  Chassis #  Engine #  Web sites  Alternatives  At Monza the P4s triumphed again while 0844, shared by Jean Guichet and Pedro Rodriguez, charged hard from the start. In fact, Pedro eventually got the lead from Parkes' P4 thanks to the P3's better fuel mileage and his blinding pace until the Mexican, trying too hard, went off at the first chicane and damaged the radiator too seriously to continue. 0844 was now prepared for the return match at Le Mans. There, 26  she was race number 25 driven by Rodriguez and Giancarlo Baghetti. It was actually Rodriguez in 0844 who led the field from the start but the pace of the winning GT40 MK IV of Dan Gurney and A.J. Foyt simply left all others gasping in their wake. 0844, after showing signs of strain, was eventually retired in the eleventh hour with piston failure. For 1968 the new three-liter limit for sports cars made cars like 0844 obsolete. However, Can-Am racing was becoming very popular so Chinetti returned the car to the factory where the bodywork was cut down into Spyder configuration and the uprights were replaced with P4 units. Finished in late August, 0844 ran its first Can-Am race at Bridgehampton, driven by Scarfiotti into seventh place. Just one week later, the P3/4 appeared at Mosport where a bad start and a puncture ended Scarfiotti's run. Chinetti now realized that four liters of European V12 stood no chance against seven liters of American V8 and retired the Ferrari from active competition. Chinetti sold the car a few years later and it passed through several hands in the US before being purchased and restored to its original P3 Berlinetta configuration. 1966 3 N/A $4-7,000,000 $3-5,000 $462 for two Stamped on frame tube in engine bay Stamped on right side of engine near bellhousing Clubs ....

It is possible to buy a warehouse full ofrace cars that arefaster than this P3 and have change left over from your $5.6M Clearly, when a car sells for the price of twenty-five Lola T-70s, we must be dealing with something that combines rarity, performance and provenance in an extraordinary way. This P3 has it all. It's a Ferrari, it competed against the Fords in the most glorious moment of international sports car racing, and it's one ofjust three built. So what does this tell us about the market? Right now, the auction results ($1.32M for a Porsche 917, $4.4M for a Cobra Daytona) show that the courage and money is therefor no-stories, extremely exotic machinery. Ifthe economy continues to move smartly along, the price paid here will be repeatable and can be considered current market value.—Michael Duffey (Photo and data courtesy of the auction company)• Sports Car Market Market Review Buyer's Guide 1966 Ferrari 330 P3

The dollar amounts may be different, but the percentage of savings is the same. However, just as your repli-bag might be fine at a Saturday matinee of the San Jose Light Opera, you probably wouldn't want to try to flaunt it at opening night at the Met. Similarly, any number of vintage race organizations would probably love to have your rebodied 250 GTE on their starting grid but the chances of Steve Earle letting you run in the Historics are somewhere between zero and none. That said, for aficionados on a budget, a well-done replica allows them to own, use and enjoy a near duplicate of a 250 TR, TDF, SWB or GTO at a tiny fraction of the price of the real thing. There is a market in replicas; www.eCarCentral.com has a number of recent transactions in its database, and I track 167 different 250-based replicas in mine. For instance, at the December 1999 Brooks Europe Sheehan Speaks by Michael Sheehan Replicas 'It U sale in Gstaad, Switzerland, S/N 1067, born as a PF coupe, and now reborn as a pontoonfendered 250 TR by Giordanego, sold for $196,000 and S/N 3839, originally a250 GTE and now a 250 GTO created by Allegretti, sold for $155,000. In March of this year, S/N 1657, formerly a PF Coupe and now a 14-louver 250 TdF built by AutoSport in Modena, sold for $171,600 at the RM Auction at Amelia Island, Florida. Before spending $150K for a recreation, do your homework. Don't be in a hurry, and buy the best. The qual- ity of construction in these cars varies radically, from Datsun 240Zs with plastic body panels to all-Ferrari-sourced component tubeframed replicas that are very difficult to tell from the real thing. The less-expensive 250-series replicas (SWBs, TdFs and Cal Spyders) were generally built on a shortened 250 GTE chassis, with a mildly hot-rodded engine and a decent copy of the original bodywork. At a glance they look right, but all too often they were built to low-budget specs, so the engines are underpowered, the steering ratios are wrong, the shifter is in the wrong location, the rear leaf spring mounts protrude into the cockpit, moving the seating position too far forward and so on. They are anything but user-friendly to drive at speed, so stay clear unless you intend to limit your use to driving in smalltown "Italian Day" parades. Shortened and modified 250 PF coupe or 250 Lusso frames, which are very close in dimension to the more expensive car's chassis, are the foundation for the best of the 250 TDF, SWB or California Spyder replicas. The front crossmember, spring mounts, brakes and suspension were updated with 250 GTE components, and correct duplicates of the headers, exhaust, transmission cases and differentials were fitted. The result is a well-balanced car that is a pleasure to We make leasing as simple as turning the key.

drive, with a cockpit that is well laid out, and brakes, suspension and gear ratios that all work well together. Most were built in the late 1980s when values of the originals were soaring. They took a year to build and cost more than $250,000. They can be purchased today for about $150,000. As for 250 TRs and GT0s, the best replicas were constructed around new frames built from the correct-size small, light diameter tubing as used in the originals. The engines were lowered and moved back in the frame and rebuilt with the correct carburetors, cams and other internals, matching the authentic cars millimeter for millimeter. Aluminum ribbed gearbox castings and correct shifters were also fitted, and 250 GTE suspension components were fitted and modified in a near duplication of the parts fitted by the Ferrari factory decades earlier. Top-flight 250 GTOs and TR replicas are finished with flawless aluminum bodywork and are nearly perfect copies of the originals. When built in the late 1980s they cost well over $300,000. Today, they bring $150,000 to $200,000. This is a bargain compared to the $4M-8M an original will set you back, but of course, you're still behind the wheel of a replica, and don't have the "Eticket" ride necessary to gain en- trance to the most desirable vintage car races, rallies and concours. The highest-quality replicars were built by Joe Marchetti, Greg Jones, Fossil Motorsports and the Fine Car Store in the US, DK Engineering in England, and Giordanego in Italy. They all carry the original serial numbers from their respective donor cars and were not created to deceive unknowing buyers. Many are actively raced in events such as the Chicago Historic races or the Walter Mitty Challenge. Almost all have been modified with updated engines, brakes or suspension tweaks that make them much faster and safer than the originals, even when driven very aggressively. Many owners race, rally or run touring events with their 250 replicas several times a year, pleasing themselves, race fans and event organizers alike. They can offer great pleasure for the money. They may not be the real thing, but they are as close as most will ever get, at a tiny fraction of the cost. However, they're an investment in looks and performance, rather than a financial one that has any real possibility of a positive return. And when replica owners are asked, "Is it real?", they can take solace knowing that the owners of the real thing get asked the same question. They just have a different answer.• ALL CLASSIFIEDS INCLUDE INTERNET POSTING! Regular text classified only $15 per month.

• Etceterini & Friends Market Place 1971 OTAS Grand Prix Chassis number: 0047 A barth and Company, a name that was to become synonymous with highly tuned specialist cars based on Fiat mechanical components, opened for business in 1949, manufacturing high-performance mufflers. A year later, Carlo Abarth's genius for obtaining amazing horsepower from tiny engines became evident with his modi- fications on the then-new Fiat 600. Abarths earned class victories in the Mille Miglia, and in America they saw class wins at such events as Lime Rock, Sebring, Nassau and Daytona. Meanwhile, in a parallel development, the famous coachbuilder Francis Lombardi developed a handsome coupe body in very limited numbers. Carlo Abarth was quick to determine that the combination of the pretty Lombardi body and his amazingly potent engines would make an excellent combination. Abarth accordingly secured a number of bodies, with the resulting car being designated the OTAS Abarth Scorpione. With its Kamm tail, sloping hood and pop-up headlights, the Abarth Scorpione is an extremely unusual and distinctive car. The particular car featured here is chassis number 47. It is preserved in extremely original, low-mileage condition, having had just two California owners from new. The car pictured here sold, as Lot 401, at the RM Auction in Monterey, California on August 19, 2000 for $7,150. The description above from the RM Monterey catalog, of an OTAS Abarth Scorpione, is reasonably correct. However, the car that crossed the block was not a Scorpione, but rather an OTAS Grand Prix when marketed here or an OTAS GT elsewhere in the world. It was conceived by Francis Lombardi in 1967 as an alternative to Carlo Abarth's line. Unfortunately, Lombardi, who had a successful body repair business in Torino and fancied himself a "carrozziere," was certainly not an engineer. He took a standard Fiat 850 platform and slapped on it a heavy steel body of his design. The 820cc Fiat engine was left in its stock form, producing about 42 hp. Curiously, RM's description lists the horsepower as 85; 1 would like to know the miracle maker who tuned this engine! Years produced  Number produced  Original list price  SCM Price Guide  Tune up/major service  Chassis #  Engine #  Club  Lombardi 's progeny weighed about 2,000 pounds; its strongest selling point must have been a guarantee to the buyer that he could never get a speeding ticket while driving the Grand Prix. But that was just a minor point in OTAS Grand Prix Alternatives  operational, and the OTAS Grand Prix became one of its first victims. Since only a handful were made, and fewer imported, this was not a tragedy of Olympian proportions. Intake side of the block Fiat 850 Racer, Fiat Abarth TC, SAAB Sonett, a tricycle woes. The standard 850 radiator (marginally adequate at best) was left in its original position at the rear. Encapsulated by a new body which restricted the air flow, it produced a small geyser after a few minutes of running. Even Rich Motors of Pasadena, California, which specialized in strange Italian cars, had difficulty selling the Grand Prix. But that shortly became an academic question, as in 1968 the newly formed EPA was fully November, 2000  Gerald Rothman, Abarth Register, 54 School STreet Suite 102, Westbury, NY 11590-4469 John Rich of Rich Motors, the Abarth maven west of the Mississippi, liked the sleek and modern lines of the unfortunate OTAS Grand Prix. By now, DOT had joined EPA in creating importation hurdles. With Rich's matchmaking, Carlo Abarth undertook the task to make the car formerly known as the OTAS Grand Prix comply with government rules. This event has a great historical significance. It marks the first ever EPA and DOT conversion. While he was at it, Abarth punched the engine up to 903cc (52 hp!) and moved the radiator to the front where the air flow was better; or at least existed. The car was still slow, but at least it could be driven on the freeway without being a moving chicane. As is often the case, one thing led to another, and Abarth adapted the body design. By 1969, the Fiat Abarth Scorpione 1300 was born. From ten feet or so away, the new Abarth looked exactly like Lombardi 's stillborn effort, but in many respects it was a different car—fun to drive and relatively trouble free. The new engine, a tried and true Fiat 124 1280cc pushrod unit, produced a whopping 75 hp. The radiator remained in front. The body and support structures were made lighter; and the new Abarth weighed "only" 1,600 pounds. It also had slightly wider wheels and tires. While it was not a double-A fuel dragster in the acceleration department, and equally cursed in handling by the standard 850 suspension (a transverse leaf spring in front, puny brakes and such), it was cute and fun to drive. By 1970 the same model, with an "SS'' added (100 hp, twin Webers, disc brakes, and allAbarth suspension), was available for sale, and it was a real pocket rocket. . .but Jam getting away from Lot 401. 1969-1971 approx.100 $4,495 (1970) N/A $150 Engine bulkhead The car auctioned at Monterey was a very decent example. The original paint was heavily patinated (which means badly faded; pastel colors were prone to that), the panel ,fit was very good, the interior acceptable, and surprisingly there were no obvious signs of rust. In short, it was a nifty little private in the army of very rare and very insignificant automotive never-has-beens. Was it worth $7,150? Any day of the week. After all, you can proclaim that you own the very first model rejected by the EPA. The bragging rights alone are worth seven grand—Raymond D.

otobili The Spirit Of The Wind by Carl Bomstead Object: "Victoire" Mascot by Rene Lalique Auction: Brooks USA, Quail Lodge, Carmel, California Date: August 19, 2000 Pre-sale estimate: $20,000-25,000 Sale price: $25,300 (includes 15% buyers premium) n today's world it is hard to envision someone setting offon a vintage car tour with a $25,000 glass mascot proudly adorning the radiator oftheir vehicle. It would be gone by the first lunch stop. There was a time, however, when glass Lalique mascots cost as little as $5 and were extremely popular with owners of the impressive cars of the '20s and '30s. I Rene Lalique, in the early 1900s, had established a favorable reputation as a gifted jeweler and was experimenting with the sculpting of glass. He introduced his first car mascot— the dragonfly ("Petite Libellube")—in 1915 and went on to offer a total of twenty-seven different designs. The number is often thought to be higher, as many of the designs were offered in different colors and many ornamental pieces such as paperweights were adapted for use as mascots. The Lalique mascots were mass produced using machine molding but they were finished and polished by hand. Production ceased in the late '30s as they were expensive to produce and profit margins were low. Six of the mascots have been reintroduced and are offered through Lalique dealers. The simplest way of determining the difference is the signature. The current offerings are signed, in script, "Lalique France" while the original offerings are either signed "R. Lalique" or "Lalique France" is stamped into the piece. Throughout the past decade the market for Lalique mascots has been extremely volatile, with prices rising and falling as rapidly as a dot-corn stock. Today, mascots rarely see the radiator of a car and are displayed in the den or office. Discretionary income determines their desirability and currently the market is very strong. Brooks USA, at their August 19th auction at Quail Lodge, offered an impressive collection of two dozen Lalique mascots, with the 1928 design "Victoire" commanding a final $25,300 bid, including commission. Also known as "The Spirit of the Wind," it is the most popular of all the Lalique offerings with its open-mouthed head and stylized outswept hair. It was stated to be in unmolested condition which is significant, since they were vulnerable to chipping when the hood was raised on a vehicle. This, however, is not the most expensive Lalique mascot. The fox ("Le Renard") commands six figures as only five are known to exist. If the new owner of "Victoire" questioned his purchase, all he needed to do was stop by the Lalique dealer in Carmel, where another one was available for more than $30,000. • Don chip thc glass mascot when you lift the hood.

The AUCTION REPORT Autumn  the dreck and the occaisional jewel offered there. Sales of unrestored motorcars can be highly entertaining events, with no hype-laden catalogs to tote around, and auctioneers who wisely refrain from hyperbole as wheelbarrows full of rusted MGA parts are pushed across the block. collector car market is a multilayered affair, and this issue contains artifacts from every strata. Dave Brownell made his annual pilgrimage to Brooks Beaulieu in England, and reports on the dogs, ENGLISH CARS #234-1929 ROLLS-ROYCE PI ASCOT Phaeton. S/N 5364LR. 6-cyl. 7668cc. 65hp. Black/tan leather. Tan cloth top. LHD. Floor- CLASSIC CARS RM Classic Cars Meadow Brook Hall Rochester, MI August 5, 2000 In some ways, unrestored cars are the stuff of enthusiasts' dreams, each of us believing that we are the chosen one to return this Alfa, Maserati, Ferrari, Jaguar or Mercedes to its former glory. Rarely does anyone admit to actively seeking out a project car. But somehow at an auction, where the car is brought to you as if on a dessert tray, you are absolved from responsibility. "It was cheap, mostly complete, and when I'm done I'm sure to make a lot of money," mumbled the SCM subscriber as he explained the new acquisition to his significant other. I can't say enough about the pleasures of the Meadow Brook weekend, from the topflight RM auction, to the art show masterfully presented under the guidance of Ford CEO Jacques Nasser's wife Jennifer to the eclectic selection of cars at the concours. Unlike the hamster-in-a-tumbling-wheel experience of Monterey, the Meadow Brook atmosphere is almost relaxing, as well as entertaining. Auctioneer: Peter Bainbridge Number of automotive lots: 73 Number of automotive lots sold: 51 Sale rate: 70% Sale total: $6,529,242 High: Lot #241, 1933 Duesenberg Model SJ "Mudd Coupe" sold at $1,331,000 Buyer's premium on sold lots included: 10% illir Gary Hoisington, of Portland, Oregon joined the SCM team of reporters and provided a snapshot of Silver's Hot August Night auctions, where the headline car was not a Deuce Coupe or a Chevelle 454, but an unrestored 300SL roadster sold to benefit charity. Mitch Silver has carefully nurtured Hot August Nights over the past eleven years, in the most unlikely venue of Reno, Nevada, which is a far drive from anywhere. Nonetheless, the bidders and consignors continue to show up and enjoy gambling on the cars that cross the block, as well as at the nearby casinos. And Richard Hudson-Evans reports on Brooks' all Rolls-Royce sale, where if you value cars in terms of dollars spent for poundweight received, every car was a bargain.—KM. 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  Report by Keith Martin Market opinions in italics offering and the auction house even provided complimentary soda pop and bottled water to the audience (the words "free" and "Monterey Weekend" are never seen in the same sentence). By now, David Gooding is a familiar fixture standing behind the RM podium, but Meadow Brook was his first post-Christie's appearance. At first he appeared to be a stranger in a strange land, worrying that hordes of shouting, handkerchief-waving ringmen were going to descend upon his bidders and grind them into hamburger before his very eyes. But as each car crossed the block, and he set the tone for the event with his congenial but sophisticated manner, he became increasingly and visibly at ease. RM partners Mike Fairbairn and Rob Myers were in the background, working the phones as well as the audience to good effect. This was my second Meadow Brook sale, and it was vastly improved over the previous year. The cars were of a much higher caliber, and the offerings were more varied than in the past. All of the usual gang were there, with Mark Hyman bringing a well-turned out supercharged Kaiser-Darrin, and Peter Brotman of Pennsylvania Motor Sports contributing an unusually well-done 365 GT 2+2 to the mix (even the steely-eyed Tom Shaughnessy remarked on the overall pleasing presentation of the car). riting this after the chaos of Monterey, Meadow Brook seems like an oasis of calm. There is only one auction, it has a comprehensible seventy-three-car Some say it's impossible to sell big cars in the months that lead up to Monterey. With this $6.5M sale held just two weeks prior, and the Mudd Duesenberg bringing absolute top dollar at $1.3M, we would have to disagree.— K.M. shift 3-speed manual. Bench seat. Chrome wire wheels.

Very good fit and finish. Probably looks better than it did when it left the factory. Cond: 2+. NOT SOLD AT $31,900. No matter how special this car is, it's still a Nova when it goes down the road. And it's hard to get respect when you brag, "I just paid $50K for my new Nova." Bid was not insulting; car can probably bring a little more, but it will take a special buyer land, Oregon, said the higher-priced car brought "about $10,000 more than I expected." The featured car in the sale was a oneowner, very original 1958 Mercedes 300SL roadster, sold at no reserve for $123,760. Its deceased Seattle owner had donated it to the Sisters of Providence foundation. According to Mitch Silver, a local collector, an airline pilot in Reno, put in the winning bid. Saturday afternoon was prime time, and Silver had a thirty-three-car streak of cars that were sold then, including the Mercedes. The crowds were large, and bidding spirited. At Hot August Nights, Silver has clearly targeted its offerings to what their audience has come to Reno looking for. Plus, in a era of 15 and 17.5% commissions, the low 4% Silver buyer's premium seems almost like a gift.—Bill Neill ENGLISH CARS #285-1951 JAGUAR XK 120 Roadster. S/N 670783. 6-cyl. Red/black leather.

Once a Sunday-only event, it now takes in four days and has become a highlight of the summer auction circuit. There were fewer custom hot rods than in previous years, with a higher number of '50s and '60s stock or mild-custom cars instead. "The trend seems to be towards more driveable cars," said David Silver, Research Specialist at Silver Auctions. Muscle cars brought strong prices, bought mostly by end-users at prices higher than dealers were willing to pay.

Floor-shift 4-speed manual. Bucket devoted to clearing a vast and desirable collection of MG sales literature, much of which had been acquired by the consignor from the late MG expert and author F. Wilson McComb's superb collection. Prices went through the stratosphere for this paper, making sellers and auctioneers hopeful that the car sale would follow suit. The cars did quite all right, thanks to low reserves and skillful auctioneering. There were some rather nice consignments, like the 1929 Packard 640 roadster, the 20-25 Rolls Gurney Nutting sedanca and the S2 Bentley Continental Flying Spur, all of which sold for reasonable market levels. Then there were the lame, the halt and the hopeless, some of which really didn't even deserve catalog or tent space. The 1945 Hillman is the most blatant example, but the 1960 Mercedes cabriolet was the very embodiment of the term "fright pig." There were others of that caliber, too: the two Triumph 2000s, the Sunbeam Rapier and the NSU Prinz were all escapees from the crusher. But that's part of the fun of the Beaulieu sales: the original idea was to provide the punters with restoration projects and parts cars. It still does a good job at that, along with offering a selection of fair to very decent machinery, some of which is more appreciated in the home UK market than elsewhere. For instance, when was the last time you lusted after a Crossley Regis sports saloon? El seats. Steel wheels. Older restoration which still shows well. Correct color repaint, correct interior, Rally dash, good chrome. Good body with exception of sagging doors. Paint chip right rear quarter, trunk sill not repainted with rest of car. Cond: 2-. SOLD AT $10,816. Sale price was absolutely correct. These late Chal- 52  Brooks apparently did a good job in persuading owners to tag realistic reserves on the cars and as a result the sales percentage was up near 97%, the kind of numbers vintage auto auctioneers usually just dream about. The other fun aspect of the Beaulieu sale is the very strong possibility that a few bidders could go home with genuine bargains. And so they did, as you'll see in this report.—D.B.

Estimates November, 2000  Whilst a less-than-forecast $208,500 was accepted for what Brooks' auctioneers billed as "perhaps the most important Phantom I to be offered at auction in recent years," the 1926 40/50 hp Phantom I with torpedo-shaped tourer coachwork by Barker in question is well known in R-R circles as "The Silver Phantom of Hyderabad" for being formerly the property of the Prime Minister of Hyderabad— His Excellency the Nawab Wali-ud-Dowla. Much of the rest of the catalog was not so stunning—and yet, such is the popularity of this annual occasion with the R-R and Bentley faithful, most cars generated bids and many sold. Among them, a 1956 Bentley S I Continental drophead, which surprisingly raised a top estimate of $60,000, had been converted from a Park Ward-built saloon and was rather shabby.

Legal Files  Plastic Lawyer be charged to a credit card. With rising platinum card limits, they can cost $50,000 or more. But using a credit card to consummate a purchase may do more than just provide convenience. As you'll see below, it may also give you the protection of a "plastic lawyer" if your transaction goes bad. A gentleman in South Florida had just purchased a Mercedes 280SL from a well-known, if not exactly well-respected, exotic-car dealer. The dealer who sold him the car assured him that it had never been hit, had never had any rust, and that red/tan was its original color combination. The S by Alexander Leventhal ometimes the inexpensive automobiles offered at auctions are referred to as "Visa card cars," as they are inexpensive enough to dealer would not let him drive the car before purchasing it, claiming it could not be taken off the floor until it was sold. He declared that the car was flawless, and that his thirty years in the business were a testimony to his honesty. "At only $19,800, it seemed like such a great deal," remarked the buyer, "that I just pulled out my Visa card and bought the car." Driving his new acquisition, he noticed that it didn't track quite straight on the highway, and that as a result he brought it to his local mechanic for a wheel alignment. The mechanic could not get the car into alignment, and further inspection revealed that the unibody was severely bent as the result of a major past collision. By pulling up the carpets he found that, in fact, the car was originally blue, and that the representation of "no rust, ever" was an exaggeration as well. Simply put, the car was nowhere near what it had been represented to be. Exclusively 280SL's Low mileage and original cars are our specialty to buy or sell.

FINANCING • LEASING • TRANSPORTATION TONY LaBELLA CLASSIC CARS 2 Springdale • Cherry Hill, New Jersey (888) 840-1700 www.tonylabella.com 60 Here's where the plastic lawyer came in. I told him to call the dealer and ask him to unwind the deal and credit back the purchase price to the buyer's credit card. If he refuses, which is likely, I recommend that he call his credit card company, and tell them that he wants to protest the charge because the merchandise was fraudulently represented, and that this false representation was what led him to purchase the vehicle. I heard from the Floridian again a week later, and he was in much better spirits. When he explained the situation to his credit card company, they immediately removed the charge from his account, and pulled the sum from the dealer's account as well. They informed him that they would pursue the matter with the dealer on his behalf and free of charge until it was resolved. They assured him that they would try to get the dealer to take the car back (which he should now be likely to do, since the card issuer had pulled the full purchase amount out of the selling dealer's account) but that regardless of the outcome, he would never be expected to pay the charge. Interestingly, the customer representative at the credit card company said that she saw no reason why he couldn't use the car until the dispute was settled, so long as it he did not damage it any further. My advice, however, was to put the car in safe storage until everything is resolved. It's just Murphy's Law that the buyer would somehow create a situation where the seller could claim that the value of the car had been diminished, open- ing up an entirely new disputable situation. In my experience, the vast majority of car dealers are decent, honest people who work hard to make a living. However, if you're unlucky enough to get involved in a transaction with a careless or crooked seller, buying the car with a credit card can offer you a layer of very inexpensive protection. (However, buying a car from someone who won't let you have it taken to an independent third party for an inspection qualifies you as an immediate member of the idiot-of-the-month-club.) Most, if not all, credit cards offer just this type of purchase protection and dispute resolution; check with your issuing company to be sure. By using a credit card with this protection, enthusiasts can protect themselves from misrepresentation or other problems. Be aware, however, that when the credit card company completes its investigation, if it finds in the seller's favor, which it might, your account will be debited once again. Just using plastic is not an invitation to have a bad case of buyer's remorse. Often, the situations I am contacted about concern amounts where litigation against the seller cannot be cost-justified. Bringing a case to court over a $20,000 car can easily cost $20,000. So if a car you are looking at can be bought with the plastic in your pocket, doing so may give you an extra layer of protection if the deal goes bad.

Book Reviews Ratings: 1...V**.z:r is Best. Two copies of books, videos, CDs, etc. must The Official Inside Story of the McLaren F 1 Driving Ambition: Authors: Doug Nye, Ron Dennis, Gordon Murray Publisher: MBI Publishing, dist. by Classic Motorbooks Phone: 800/826-6600 Size: 12" x 12" hardcover. 272 pages. Price: $49.95 Rating: All enthusiasts: Supercars come and go. The flavor of the moment, be it Vector, Bugatti EB-110, Jaguar XJ 220 or even the street-legal Group B cars like the Ford RS200, are never seen by a good portion of the motoring public. Often, some aspects of their conception, real performance or financing are shrouded in mystery. Most of us felt differently when the McLaren F! road car was announced. Here was a real team with real resources giving it a go but clearly, the million-dollar price tag was going to keep it some distance from our driveways. Even though most of us will never drive or even sit in one of these cars, I'm sure a good number of people are interested in the materials, technology and performance of a car that costs as much as a really nice house. Driving Ambition opens with a page that gives the impression of a carbon fiber skin with a McLaren Fl chassis plate mounted on it. This sets the stage for both the quality of the book and the technology of its subject matter. The Fl isn't McLaren's first venture into street-legal race cars. Just prior to Bruce McLaren's death, they built two road-going M-6 Can-Am cars fitted with very attractive coupe bodywork. It is hard to say how much they learned from that effort, but it is clear from the text that the new car was going to embrace both performance and comfort, something the M-6 only got half right. The conception of the Fl project from drawings and mock-ups to a "runner" is a fantastic story. Anyone who has ever assembled anything on a scale large enough to sit in has a clue how much effort it takes to get the thing rolling. But here is an effort that went from a blank sheet of paper to a running at Le Mans with very few wrong turns. The ultra-qualified group of authors—designers Ron Dennis and Gordon Murray, joined by historian Doug Nye—tell the story with great detail and pride as they take us through the meetings, decision 62 be furnished for review.

These smaller vehicles are often credited with stopping BMW's slide into obscurity due to their financial woes. The 3 Series evolved from these initial offerings and with their introduction in 1975, the timing could not have been better. The oil crisis was taking its toll on sales of larger cars and BMW was one of the few companies that had a fuel-effi c ient, sporty vehicle—with some creature comforts—sitting in their dealers' showrooms. Taylor explains that modern BMWs have a factory code beginning with E that identifies the various de- James Taylor sign phases. The first 3 Series (1975-1982) was designated E21, the second (1983-91) E30, the third E36 and the fourth generation, beginning in 1997, E46. Each generation is described in exacting detail and would only be of interest if you were a devoted BMW historian or contemplating a purchase. The final chapter on its own, however, could make the $34.95 price of the book a bargain. It is titled "Buying a 3 Series BMW" and should be required reading prior to buying a used Bimmer. Taylor explains that even though the BMW name is synonymous with performance, glamour and luxury, not all 3 Series maintain these traits. They were, after all, entry-level vehicles. He goes on to state that even the current 3 Series cars are nowhere near as exciting as many imagine. Taylor points out areas of concern such as rust and weak water pumps on the E21s, door sag and electrical system problems on the E30s, and other areas, such as timing chain wear, to be aware of if contemplating a purchase. With brutal but refreshing honesty, the author states that proper service is an absolute requirement and that a well-worn 3 Series should not be considered a good buy. This information alone makes the book worthwhile for any BMW enthusiast. . .but for those less committed to the cars with the twin grilles, it is a tough read. —Carl Bomstead The Unfair Advantage Authors: Mark Donohue, Paul Van Valkenburgh Publisher: Bentley Publishers Phone: 800/423-4595 Size: 61/4" x 9 1/4" hardcover. 325 pages. Price: $ 49.95 (paperback $24.95) Rating: '60s and '70s race fans **** Casual enthusiasts Although he may be unknown to today's young batch of racing buffs, Mark Donohue was a Renaissance man among race drivers. His achievements spanned Trans-Am, CanAm, Indy cars and even Formula One. His driving talent was matched by his skills as a trained mechanical engineer. His most notable efforts came when teamed up with Roger Penske. The Sunoco colors of dark blue with yellow stripes were familiar livery for the Trans-Am Camaro, Lola CanAm cars and the unforgettable Ferrari 512M. Donohue and Penske were well known for their ability to take a factory's "customer car" like the Lola or Ferrari and tweak it just a little bit better than anyone else could. In Donohue's down-to-earth, direct manner he tells the story of his career through his work with the various cars he drove. From his club racing days with a solid-axle Corvette and Elva Formula Junior to his involvement with the awesome, worldbeating Porsche 917, Donohue's storytelling evokes a time when modestly funded (and talented) guys made good. The Unfair Advantage has been out of print since the mid'70s and second-hand copies have recently been offered at $100 and more. Here is your chance to take a fresh look at that era of professional racing. For me, it was an opportunity to re-read a book I forgot to keep when I first picked it up in 1975, and to relive a part of my sports car past.—MD. Sports Car Marke

ClPfsdglbx T Alfa Rome GTV-6 he Alfa Romeo GTV-6 was produced at a time when Alfa Romeo was hemorrhaging money. Yet, the engineers at Alfa managed to create one of the most sophisticated sports cars of its era. An all-alloy SOHC V6 engine driving a rear five-speed transaxle with deDion suspension is world-class engineering. This was also the last two-door sports coupe Alfa imported into the US before its retreat from the market in 1995. Alfa wanted its new car to be bug-free, so GTV-6s built in 1980 were used exclusively by the factory for testing. The model was finally considered ready for public sale in 1981, but fortune was not with the new Alfa. Porsche's 944 was The last two- introduced at the same time, and robbed Alfa of many sales in its inaugural year. Then, a clerical error caused virtually the entire 1982 US allotment to be silver with a blue interior. Mechanical problems included weak head gaskets and a hydraulic cam belt detensioner which, if it failed, could require a major engine overhaul. By 1985, the car's mechanical difficulties were behind it, and the GTV-6 underwent some desirable styling changes. These included a redesigned interior with new seats and a more attractive trim scheme for the exterior. The following year, however, Fiat bought Alfa and withdrew the coupe from the market in anticipation of the Milano sedan. The car's short market life, along with its technical problems, turned away many potential buyers. However, faithful Alfisti find a great deal to enjoy about the car. Its 2.5-liter, all-alloy V-6 engine gives ample power over a very broad range of engine speeds. No Alfa since the 6C 2500 is more comfortable, or more suited to long-distance travel. The car offers reclining seat backs, power windows and a reasonable air conditioning system. (Demonstrating a perhaps well-founded lack of confidence in the Italian power window motors, a manual crank was included in the glovebox.) Many models carried a manual sunroof, and several special editions were offered in an effort to inspire sales. GTV-6s are just now passing the nadir of their value, which will rise for low-mileage cars in excellent condition, as they become more rare. Special edition models, such as the November, 2000  Balocco or the Maratona (called the "Marijuana" by some Berkeley-area wags) bring only a small premium, since most of their uniqueness was either glued or screwed to the body. Shoppers should try to find a 1985 or '86 model. The health of the driveshaft is the first thing to check. A careful visual inspection will reveal the condition of its three rubber donuts (one inside the front bell housing). A vibration at idle, or at about 3,500 rpm, indicates that the driveshaft is not in balance. If the cam belt shows traces of oil, its detensioner is in immediate need of repair; more reliable non-hydraulic tensioners are available. By now, every GTV-6 has been fitted with an improved head gasket, but if the oil on the dipstick looks milky, get ready for a quick $750 interaction with the local ATM. Later improvements to the engine in the Milano and 164 sedans can be easily retrofitted to the GTV-6, and a GTV-6 equipped with a 3-liter engine from a Milano Verde is a joy to drive. Look for rust in the usual places, including the rockers and the wheel arches. Be sure all the switches work, as replacing them, or the motors they control, can be expensive. Since best-in-the-world GTV-6s are under $10,000, it doesn't make sense to buy one that has major needs—unless, like so many Alfisti, you are a do-it-yourselfer. Virtually every part necessary to restore a GTV-6 is available either new aftermarket or in good used condition. Any Alfa that has style and performance will eventually become collectible. The GTV6 is an inexpensive way to enjoy a future collectible with superb engineering, at a very reasonable price.—Pat Braden• Years produced  Number produced  Original list price  SCM Price Guide  Tune-up/major service  Distributor cap  Chassis #  Engine #  Club  Web site  door Alfa coupe Jur the US market.

The Monthly DiRest of Magnificent Motor Cars Market Review Buyer's Guide AC • Aston Martin • Austin-Healey • Bentley • Rolls-Royce • Jaguar • Lotus • MG • Triumph 1960 Austin-Healey 3000 2+2 Chassis number: HBT7L/1941 Engine number: 29DRU/H2003 I he Austin-Healey sports car range is synonymous with a particular era ofBritish sports car production, and is similar to Jaguar in many ways. Both companies built strong, reliable and affordable cars for the North American market, their strongest and safest market, and the cars evolved model by model over the years. The 100 series Healeys were successful, initially with four-cylinder, then six-cylinder, motors, but it is the 3000 model that most people remember as the definitive Healey. The first 3000 designated car was introduced in the spring of1959 and featured a six-cylinder 2912-cc motor with overhead valves and pushrods, that produced 124 bhp at 4,600 rpm with a top speed of 115 mph. The gearbox was four-speed with overdrive on third and fourth. The suspension consisted of front independent coil springs and a live axle with half-elliptic springs in the rear. Front disc brakes were introduced on the 3000. Two body styles were available, a two-seater (BN7) or a 2+2 (BT7). The 2+2 has been comprehensively and professionally restored to the highest of standards; virtually everything that could be done by way of restoration has been attended to. The chassis was stripped to bare metal and blasted before being resealed and painted, and the panelwork was similarly prepared before a high-quality urethane black paint job. All chrome work was either replated or newly replaced, while the interior was retrimmed with correct Connolly leather seats, new carpets, panel kit and new Everflex top and sidescreens. Both the style and finish has been done to correct factory colors and standards and with all correct detailing and appropriate decals and stickers. The car sits on sixty-spoke upgraded chrome/ stainless wheels and correct-size Michelin radial tires. Years produced  Mechanically the drivetrain has been completely rebuilt, as were the rear axle, brakes, suspension, and electrical system, all to the highest standards. The Healey is offered with a BMIHT certificate verifying that it was built on June 12, 1959, destined for Los Angeles, so it is entirely fitting that forty years later, almost to the day, the car is offered for sale in Los Angeles. This car sold at the Christie's Auction/Petersen Museum sale on June 17, 2000 for $64,625 including buyer 's premium. (The photo above is of a similar car, but a correct BT7. The photo used in the auction catalog, and in the August SCM, was incorrect, and of a later 3000 Mk II.  —ED.) When news of this sale went out over the Healey grapevine in late June, it was met with near disbelief Sure, factory-modified 100Ms had, a few times, cracked the $50,000 barrier, but never to anyone 's knowledge had a standard model Healey ever crossed the auction block for so much money. Adding to the astonishment, this wasn't a late convertible or even a two-seat tri-carb, generally considered second and third in desirability in the Healey market. This was a simple early 3000 (often but erroneously referred to as "Mark Is ') in the slightly dowdy 2+2 body style.

Nevertheless, the owner will have to struggle with screw-on side curtains and a detachable top that is about as weatherproofas an army pup tent. In addition, this car won't be challenging the Jaguars or Astons for speed in any touring caravan. On the other hand, Healeys are considerably cheaper to maintain than most high-end dream machines and a properly restored example, like this one, will be nearly bulletproofifthe owner just remembers to change the oil and lube all twenty-three grease fittings once a year However, we do not believe that this is the first robin ofa new spring in Healey prices. Even a nearly concours-quality BT7, as this one was, usually sells for around $25,000 and you will still be able to find another one tomorrow or next week at that price. Why this particular car sold for what it did says more about auctions and auction buyers than it does about trends in Healey prices. First, this was a primo car The restorer has been doing Healeys for owners and on spec for over ten years and his father, who does the bodywork, has been beating panels for a lifetime. He has a reputation for paying close attention to originality in his restorations, departing only where it may enhance the sale—such as by substituting chrome wheels for the original painted wires. The color choice of black, which shows off good bodywork, coupled with a rich red leather interior, certainly didn't hurt the car 's attractiveness. Second, Christie 's was playing to a well-heeled 1959-1961 10,825 $3,250 $16,000-24,000 $350 $25 www.healeyclub.org; www.Healey.org crowd at the Petersen benefit. These are people who don 'task the price when they are offered the very best of something they want. And third, at least one notable celebrity collector was actively bidding against a buyer who wanted to take a Healey home that night. Good car, good crowd, emotional buyer; it doesn 't get much better than that for a restorer He was probably just as surprised as anyone when the hammer fell.—Gary Anderson, Editor and Publisher, British Car Magazine.

By Gary Anderson  Zbe 1ngU1) 'Patient Is This The Ugliest Car? Eill eginning with this issue, Gary Anderson will expand the scope ofhis column (formerly Cat Trax) to include all British cars. Mr. Anderson is the publisher ofBritish Car Magazine, and owns an Austin-Healey 3000, a Jaguar Mk2, and an MGA. Please send your car questions to editorgary@aol.com ; fax 650/949-9685. Dear Mr. Anderson: I'd like to restore an MGA. I have my choice between a pretty nice 1500 (complete and not too rusty) and a pretty nasty 1600 Mk II (complete, but ugly). The 1600 Mk II has a more powerful engine and disc brakes, so will it be more valuable in the end? And is the performance difference between the two engines really noticeable?—B.B., Berkeley, CA An MGA is an excellent restoration project. The car is very attractive and usually pretty simple to restore, although getting the door gaps right can take a mixture of sweat, luck and magic. Nearly everything you will need is readily available. There is an active nationwide network of car clubs and specialists that will be ready to help with advice and support. The 1600 MkII is definitely the better of the two cars, offering 90 bhp to the 68 bhp of the 1500, which reduced 0-60 times from 14.5 seconds to 12.8 seconds. The front disc brakes were much better at stopping than the 1500's front drums, as well. However, about the only way you'd notice the difference is to pit the two against one another in a drag race— they are both so far outpaced by any CARSKATES MAKES A 2-CAR GARAGE INTO A 3-CAR GARAGE • Move cars, trucks, trailers in any direction • Makes storage easy • Fits all tire widths • Capacity 6,000 lbs, set of 4 • 8" x 16" x 1/4" steel platform • H.D. 3" casters • $145 set of 4 (s&h add') • 2 sets $135 each (s&h add') • Same day shipping P & 011 PRODUCTS 988 Gordon Lane, Birmingham, MI 48009 .1.1"s or Toll-Free Phone (888) 647-1879 • Fax (248) 356-1066 www.carskates.com November, 2000  fC•V average contemporary econobox that the difference hardly matters, except to another MGA fanatic. The market values of comparable versions of these two models are close enough that the real question for you is which of the ones that you're looking at is going to cost least and look best when finished. If by "ugly" you mean, "has more rust than metal underneath," then the answer is easy—the 1500 will put you on the road much more quickly and with just about as much fun. Dear Mr. Anderson: What is a Daimler Dart SP250? I'm offered one for $10,000, in decent enough shape. It runs and drives, but could really use a restoration. The seller says it has a Chrysler Hemi in it. Is this the correct engine, and what's this whole thing worth?— R.G., Medford, OR In years past, British Car Magazine periodically conducted a poll asking among other things, for the readers' opinions of best, worst, prettiest, and ugliest. Hands down, the Daimler SP250 (never called the Dart in the US—an Addressing the Mysteries of British Car Ownership argument with Dodge over naming rights, we understand) always won the vote for ugliest British car. This was probably due to the truly unfortunate styling of its front end. If you can imagine chroming a catfish, you'd have an idea of what it looked like. But underneath the fiberglass skin, the car had a truly wonderful V8 engine designed by Daimler, making it the fastest British sports car on the road when it was introduced in 1960. The British constabulary bought a number of them for use as pursuit cars when the new high-speed M roads opened about the same time. They could have been contenders, too, except that Daimler hit a bad patch and was bought out of receivership by Jaguar. Since Jaguar introduced the E-type in 1962, the SP250 had to take a fall. The engine survived a few more years in the Daimler sedan, but all that's left of the once-respectable marque is a piece of fluted chrome on the Jaguar Van den Plas. The 5P250 is a bit of a cult classic among British car enthusiasts and is most often found in vintage racing. Now, as to the modified car you've been offered. Forget about it. There is a place for Hemi engines, but it isn't in a nice car like the SP250. When you buy a car with a transplanted engine, you're buying every problem the previous owner couldn't solve, and if it needs restoration, there isn't a manual anywhere that's going to be of any help. If you do like the idiosyncratic look of the SP250, they can be found occasionally for under $20,000 in good condition, but do check under the hood to make sure it's got the right engine.• Yoseph ,C. 2 -roise AUTOMOBILE APPRAISAL SERVICES For The Northern California Area Post war European cars a specialty, also book collections.

PORSCHE * MERCEDES-BENZ * BMW UND ANDERE GERMAN C R gkag„, tad R/etraiideer Chassis number: 12 353 Engine number: 40 055 I his is an unusual example of a significant, yet somewhat mysterious early Porsche model, the enigmatic Type 540. It has taken decades for marque experts to unravel the numerous questions of the America Roadster, even including such basics as how it came about, who thought of it, and why its production was so brief. Suffice to point out here that the America Roadster—of which perhaps eleven survive—was the model that began to establish Porsche as a street-useable marque also capable of being raced effectively. It provided the initiative, later acted upon by Porsche's prime coachbuilder, Reutter, in creating the best-loved Porsche of the 1950s, the 356 Speedster. So why so much mystery about this model? Partly because the car was never cataloged. Since it was intended only for American export, the model was not promoted within Europe. In addition, since Heuer, the coachbuilder, lost money on each body built, the production run was cut short after just sixteen cars. In the midst of modestly growing sports car production, Ferry Porsche appreciated that a market existed for a raceworthy Porsche in the United States. In order to obtain light weight and allow for low-volume output without expensive production tooling, the body was aluminum. To save weight, cost and complexity, the doors were hollow, supporting side curtains instead of roll-up windows, and the simple dash panel featured an open glovebox. Although full-up weight was 1,580 lb., about 122 lb. was removable by unbolting the split windscreen and canvas top. Alloy bucket seats were available, as were a small plastic racing windscreen, leather hood straps and headlamp stoneguards. Power was ample, with 0 to 60 in about 9.3 seconds and a top speed of 110 mph. Year produced  While the first America Roadsters were fitted with single-grille engine covers, a second batch had twin-grille decklids as well as subtly flared fenders. A third version may have existed with a fixed windshield and partially enclosed rear-wheel arches. Chassis 12 353 is from the second production series, with a correct twin-grille decklid and flared fender openings. This example was imported by Max Hoffman in October 1952. Its first owner, Larry Kulok, entered the 1953 Sebring 12 hours race but was unable to start due to transmission failure. This chassis may have been one of two America Roadsters in the 1954 Sebring race which finished an  unimpressive 15th and 36th. Today's seller purchased the car from the fourth owner, who owned it for forty years beginning in 1959. The fourth owner indicated that the 42,000 miles recorded are probably genuine. The quick-fill fuel receptacle protruding through the hood panel is highly unusual, and this may be the only America Roadster so equipped. In the late '50s, the car's original color was changed from ivory with green leather to silver with red leatherette. All gauges and lights are 70  Number produced  Original list price  SCM Price Guide  Tune-up/major service  Distributor cap  Chassis 4  Engine #  Club  Market Review Buyer's Guide 1952 Porsche Type 540 America Roadster On horizontal bulkhead under front lid Between generator fan pulley and crankshaft pulley on aft-most edge of engine crankcase Web site  Alternatives  Jaguar XK 120; Ferrari 250 Porsche Club of America, 5530 Edgemont Drive, Alexandria, VA 22310 www.pca.org GT PF Cabriolet; Mercedes 220 S Cabriolet; early Corvette "C 1" working. The tires are slightly oversize at 5.25 x 16 rather than the stock 5.00 width. Attachments for the ultra-rare wheel turbo brake-cooling rings have been remade in the original style. The original side curtains, an early replacement top, a tool pouch that looks complete, and a period rollbar are all included. The only known mechanical modification from factory specification has been the fitting early in its career of shorter 3rd and 4th gears taken from Porsche 550 sports racing stock. With a pre-auction estimate of $300-400,000, this car was bid to $290,000 and declared unsold at the Brooks Quail Lodge Auction on August 19, 2000. The thoroughly unrestored condition, as well as the unusual nature of the America Roadster, make this a tricky car to sell. Unlike the Speedster or even the 550 Spyder, the America Roadster is not a Porsche icon. We don 't find hundreds ofphotos ofracing American Roadsters because they were not winners or even consistent contenders. They didn't have the mid-engine placement or lusty horsepower of the 550 4-cam race cars for serious events, or the accessible price and reliability of the 356 Speedster for amateur venues. Even the design of the America Roadster seems odd, with its radiused wheel openings, flowing fender lines fore and aft, cut-down doors and its split windscreen looking for all the world as though taken right off an XK 120 Jaguar. This example was old and tired, with deteriorated paint, poor panel fits and a grungy engine compartment. It needs a full restoration before it would be equal to several of the other America Roadsters being trailered around the show circuit. For example, at Meadow Brook in 1998, a positively stunning light metallic silver-green America Roadster was a blue-ribbon winner in 1952 16 $4,600 $175,000-300,000 $300 Unavailable the 356 open car class. That fully restored car was rumored to be available for $350,000 or so after the show. This car now sits on eBay, with a $325,000 opening bid and a reserve somewhere above the opening money. This is a very narrow market, so it is difficult to call. But in my opinion, the crowd at Brooks was correct to hold on to their paddles on this one.—Jim Schrager (Photo and data courtesy of the auction company)• Sports Car Market

New Motor, So What ear Mr. Schrager: How do I go about selling a 1976 914 2.0 liter with 19,900 miles that has been stored since 1980?—T.A., Oakland, CA This car may have the potential to bring top dollar, but not until it runs. Unless you are a pro, don't try to start the car after two decades of inactivity. Instead, find a Porsche specialist familiar with the 914. Most likely the brakes will need a thorough rebuild, as well as the seals and gaskets on the engine and transmission and, of course, a new fan belt. I'd think about new alternator bearings as well. While this is the way to get the most money, you may be in for some nasty surprises. Depending upon how carefully the car was stored, there may be rust on internal engine parts that will eventually mandate a rebuild. We just pulled a 914/ 6 out of a barn in Wisconsin and found evidence of a herd of mice in the interior, the air cleaner, the ventilation ducts, and the exhaust system. Luckily, the previous owner had completely filled the crankcase and heads with oil, which helped keep the engine internals from deteriorating. It seems to run well. Even so, we still have plenty to do to make this car fully functional. You will need to create a package on the car to send to purchasers out of your local area, including a stack of photos and a data sheet detailing the ownership history. Be prepared to defend and prove your lowmileage claim. The best way is by providing records from the day of sale onward. Try advertising in Panorama (the Porsche Club of America's monthly magazine), Hemmings, and right here in SCM. Also use your local Auto Trader just in case someone nearby is interested. EBay can have good results, but protect yourself with a fair reserve price. If you don't want to fool around with getting it running, be prepared to discount the price for all the unknowns. Dear Mt: Schrager: I was at a local auction last week and a 1972 911T Targa crossed the block—red over black vinyl, alloy wheels, 5-speed, no The Used 911 Story The buyer's guide that future Porsche 911 owners should never be without. All air-cooled models are discussed with pros/cons mentioned regarding each model. Author Peter Zimmermann taps into 30+ years of experience to bring you this little book, now in its 6th edition. Sports Car Market's Jim Schrager wrote: "This is the most useful, accurate and important single book published on buying a used 911. It is absolutely a must if you really want to know about these cars." Please mail $29.95 (check or money order made to Peter Zimmermann) to PO. Box 651, Newbury Park, CA 91320 for the cheapest Porsche insurance you'll ever buy! Credit card orders may be placed with www.BarnesandNoble.com November, 2000  visible rust. The paint was tired, the seats had a few tears repaired with adhesive tape and there was a cheapo domestic carpet. Any cracks in the dash may have been hidden by a $79 plastic dash cap. Okay, so far just a beater, but now it gets interesting. The car came with receipts for a complete rebuild at Motor Meister, totaling about $9,000, including engine and transmission, 2.4 S pistons, distributor, rejetted and rebuilt Solexes, the whole deal. There was no way to test-drive the car, but it sounded good when started. The car was sold at $6,100, including commission. Should ! have bought this car just to hot-rod around? Or to slap the drivetrain into another 911 with a restored body? Or, did 1 do the right thing by letting somebody else buy it and waiting for the right car without so many obvious needs to come along?—B. 1E, Portland, OR This is a perfectly useful early 911 Targa, and a decent buy if you are willing to do one of the following: 1. Leave it alone and enjoy it as is. 2. Do most of the work in repainting and refurbishing the car yourself. 3. Part it out. If you try to make this one into a beauty, you will be buried in a hurry. Figure at least $5,000 for a decent paint job and interior redo, and that's if the crummy paint isn't hiding anything underneath. And if the former owner let the exterior deteriorate, who knows what condition the suspension and brakes are in. As for putting the drivetrain in another car, yes, it would save money over rebuilding your original components. But that's only true if the hot-rod engine has been properly run-in and maintained. Given the overall condition of this car, I would have my doubts. So many early Porsches have had engine swaps that having an incorrect engine will only affect the value of the car if you want to hit the show circuit, something I wouldn't advise in this instance. A few notes on the rebuild specs: Although many people believe S pistons make a big difference, without S cams and S heads, the higher compression pistons don't add that much to the powerband. Solexes are not correct for a US-model 1972 911T, as it was originally fuel injected. Webers are the carburetors of choice for a hot-rod 911, as they provide a wide range of internal components to allow fine-tuning for almost any engine configuration. The same is not true of Solexes. Frankly, you might make a couple thousand dollars by dismantling the car, but think of the energy involved to take it apart, and to clean and ship the various subassemblies. Further, all the good stuff will go first (engine, transmission, wheels) and you'll be left with a stripped hulk to dispose of. This car clearly demonstrates that just pouring money into a 911, as with the $9,000 engine overhaul, is no guarantee you'll get it back out when you go to sell it. If you want a red Porsche that looks great from fifty feet away, and can resist the temptation to start improving it, then you missed a good buy. But if, as with many SCM readers, the initial purchase is just an excuse to start pouring money into a car, you're better off with a car in better condition. It's a lot more fun buying new floor mats and an upgraded stereo than trying to do a cosmetic restoration on a car with an unknown history.• 71

From Grand Classics to Twin Stripes of Smoking Rubber 1939 Lincoln Zephyr Custom - "Scrape" Chassis number: JS23ROB212809 secrecy, before emerging as this stunning custom car. The frame and running gear are from a 1978 Chevy station wagon with a small block 350 Chevrolet V8 for power. The coupe body was removed from the Zephyr frame and channeled over the Chevy frame rails. Both were placed flat on the ground and welded together. The car was then built from the floor up with hydraulics controlling the ride height. Terry Cook has a passion for elegant automotive styling. His idols are the 1930's Italian coachbuilders Giuseppi Figoni (the designer) and Ovidio Falaschi (the financial backer) of the Paris-based Carrosserrie Automobile. His influences also include Jacques Saoutchik as well as American Gordon Buehrig and his unheralded clay modeler, Vince Gardner. Several early customizers from the Sacramento area in the 1940s also had a strong impact on Cook's future designs. All of the above had a strong influence on Cook's decisions regarding final design of "Scrape." In addition, the three who originally designed the Briggs-bodied Zephyr—John Tjaarda, Bob Gregorie and yes, Edsel Ford— deserve credit for providing a platform that lent itself to his design. Cook's design for the car started with a Zephyr ad from a 1939 Life Magazine. Up front, a '40-41 Zephyr nose section was grafted between the 1939 front fenders and the fenders were widened 2.5" per side. 1939 Ford headlights were frenched into the fenders and the pan was rolled under the grille. The long sweeping architecture of the rear roof is one of the vehicle's most attractive design elements. The rear window area was filled with sheet metal and Cook then drew the exact opening he envisioned, one-third the size of the original. The result is that "Scrape" has become a phenomenon in its own right, having appeared in numerous major auto shows, featured on the cover of five magazines, and has been displayed at the Louis Vuitton Concours in New York City. "Scrape" was offered by RM Auctions at their August 18 and 19th event in Monterey, California and sold for $275,000, which included the premium. S Year produced  Number produced  Tune-up/major service  Distributor cap  Chassis #  Engine #  Club  Customs and hot rods are often a hard sell. They are an expression of one person's opinion of automotive design and badly done ones provide Web site  Alternatives  insight as to why some people think plaid pants and a striped shirt make a good-looking ouYit. On the other hand, Terry Cook, the former Editor of Hod Rod and Car Craft Magazines, has a strong background in rodding design and knows what looks right and elegant. For instance, when the top on "Scrape" was being chopped, he drove to the shop to take a look and said, "Whack it down two more inches and call me in the morning." He was right—the lower top fits the flowing lines of the car perfectly. 76  crape" began in January of1993 when Terry Cook nearly complete 1939 Zephyr coupe in a barn in Farmington, Maine. It had been there for twenty-two years and was covered with pigeon droppings. Cook bought the car and delivered it to Rams Rod Shop where it spent 41/2 years and 4,500 hours, cloaked in total Cook found The underlying car, the Lincoln Zephyr, was often considered undesirable, its redeeming quality being as a source of parts for Continentals. It was conceived in 1932 as the Briggs Body Company was looking for a way to expand its business with Ford. Edsel Ford, on the other hand, was a victim of his father 's inflexibility and Lincoln, his only sanctuary, was under financial pressure. John Tjaarda, a Dutchman working for Briggs, presented his streamlined designs for a mid-priced car to Edsel Ford and with much secrecy the Zephyr moved forward. It was introduced, with favorable response, at the 1934 Chicago World's Fair. In the late 1930s the Zephyr evolved into a very attractive, streamlined vehicle, and in 1951 the Museum of Modern Art recognized the late '30s Zephyrs for their advanced automotive styling. 1998 1 Original list price  Purchased used for $3,300 SCM Price Guide  N/A $100 $10 Whatever DMV assigns it Chevrolet 350/ on the right head National Street Rod Association, 4030 Park Ave, Memphis TN 38111; www.nsra-usa.com Spend $300,000 building your own design Those who have restored a car from the ground up are quick to tell the tale of their trials and tribulations and most swear that they will never do it again. Building a car from scratch and incorporatingpersonal design ideas intensifies the project by at least a couple offrustration levels. There are a few significant customs and perhaps "Scrape" will become one of them. Only time will tell fthat occurs. In the meantime, it has completed the show and publication circuit and has "been there, done that." Is $275,000 an unrealistic number for this car? At shop rates of $60 per hour, plus parts, the car could not be duplicated for that amount. Perhaps even more important, the new owner, the Petersen Museum, has apiece of creative automotive art in its collection that has already basked in the national spotlight. While we may not be able to forecast how the automotive community will judge "Scrape" in fifty years, at this moment, it stands as the most recognizable, and arguably the most attractive, custom car ever built. —Carl Bomstead (Photo and data courtesy of the auction company) • Sports Car Market

.. 11 .0 .Velmilee SC/la AUCTION REPORT: BROOKS UK ROLLS-ROYCE Auction Reports continued from page 59 "The Silver Phantom" was landed and brought home by a British Motor Museum owner in 1966, since when very sympathetic restoration. Cond: 1-. SOLD AT $208,500. An absolutely stunning and genuine Indian Phantom with the correct body, although a Continental private collector got in for $16,500 less than the lower guide price. #535-1927 ROLLS-ROYCE 20-HP 4-door Tourer. Body by Regan. SIN GYK 28. Eng.# G1849. Blue/black. LHD. Odo: 73,542 miles. Painted wire wheels. Originally Barker limo Eng.# V7BK. Gray/blue, gray. RHD. Odo: 25,362 miles. Steel disc wheels. 1935 London Motor Show exhibit totally restored to high standard in 1999. Driver's seat marked by gear changing. Paint badly chipped on forward edge of fixed roof. Cond: 1-. SOLD AT $52,575. Shiny enough, but attention to some of the detailing needed and it only just scraped in above the reserve. #525-1936 ROLLS-ROYCE PHANTOM III Sports Sedan. Body by Thrupp & Maberly. S/N 3AZ26. Black, white/brown leather, beige cloth. RHD. Odo: 92,495 luns. RHD. Odo: 71,637 miles. Steel wheels. This was the sixth and final Wraith prototype, which saw RAF wartime service. Last bare-metal repainted and retrimmed in 1998 and clearly little used since. Nice engine bay presentation. Cond: 2+. SOLD AT $22,500. All very bright and shiny—as long as you could live with the light blue interior—but a factory prototype and therefore not expensive. #527-1952 ROLLS-ROYCE SILVER WRAITH Sedan. S/N WSG2. Blue, gray/brocade. RHD. Odo: 85,450 miles. Steel wheels. and only recently re-bodied. Nicely proportioned with handsome screen. Lovely nickel headlamps by CAV and Toby Mitchell "bullseye" sidelights. Cond: 2+. SOLD AT $44,850. With good earning potential as weddings cat; here was stylish and well executed, but practical to own open "Flying Lady" transport for four, which raised $2,850 over the auctioneers' most optimistic forecast. #528-1933 ROLLS-ROYCE 20/25 HP 4door Sedan. Body by Barker. S/N GEX 29. Eng.# K6E. Black over beige over black/brown. Steel wheels. Nice provenance, first owned by Earl of Carnarvon. Paint only just about OK. Very worn and torn chauffeur's seat with only fair cloth interior. In fact, about ready for a total makeover. Cond: 2-. NOT SOLD AT $36,000. Even with 7.3-litre V12 motor recently overhauled and good history, it didn't make it. The $42,000 minimum required was clearly too much for the largely private enthusiast audience. #531-1938 ROLLS-ROYCE 25/30 HP Sports Sedan. Body by Thrupp & Maberly. S/N GGR 58. Eng.# C22G. Black/gray. RHD. Odo: 87,427 miles. Steel wheels. Returned to On whitewalls, with lots of burl walnut, rear cocktail cabinet, picnic tables and very snazzy brocade trim. Steering wheel, knobs and gauges all in white. All rather faded, though seemingly sound and all working. Cond: 2-. SOLD AT $19,838. Lots of character and potential with slim screen pillars, long flowing wings, rear wheel spats and very interesting interior—and, as it turned out, great value too. #524-1953 ROLLS-ROYCE SILVER WRAITH Sedanca de Ville. Body by H.J. Mulliner. S/N WVH 95. Eng.# W94H. Black/ tan leather, fawn cloth. RHD. Odo: 79,427 RHD. Odo: 32 miles. Painted wire wheels. Paint cracking on rear mudguards. Much varnish missing. Stuffing trying to escape from driver's seat squab. Fitted with later coil ignition. Cond: 2-. SOLD AT $19,020. During inter-war years, this was the best-selling Roller model. Today, many struggle to find a friend. A Barker-bodied car like this has a better chance than most. This one had seen better days and was cheap enough. #542-1935 BENTLEY 3.5-LITRE Coupe de Ville. Body by Park Ward. S/N B135EJ. UK from US in early 1990s, when $72,000 was invested in restoration. Very good presentation, apart from some minor chips to engine's black enamel. Cond: 1-. SOLD AT $41,832. Lovely elegant motor car in great condition, which deservedly made top guide price. #538-1938 ROLLS-ROYCE WRAITH 4door Limousine. Body by Park Ward. S/N WXA-8.Eng.# W11109. Black, blue/light blue. miles. Steel wheels. Former diplomat's transport dating from final year of SWB Wraith production. Still unrestored and very largely original. Tatty front seats. Cond: 2-. SOLD AT $32,775. Characterful Wraith with two private owners from new. It had not been got at and yet was in generally sound nick—hence the result $2,775 over the top guide price. #522-1955 BENTLEY Si 4-door Sedan rolling chassis. S/N B420AN. Eng.# BA210. No exterior panels/no interior. RHD. Steel wheels. Former sedan, then hearse, and now November, 2000 81

eWatch ‘‘ r n September, there were ten bids on a Packard that ran the price up to $275,100 but that was not enough. Well, it was not exactly a Packard, it was the whole darn company-a new prototype 2000 V12 sedan with zero miles, a full-size styling model and the Packard name and trademark. Also included: the tooling for making the parts, engineering drawings, and a list of those wishing to place orders. Perhaps the lack of audited books and EPA emission approval held down the enthusiasm but owning the Packard Company would certainly give you some bragging rights at the next CCCA meet. I A Packard "vintage" clock that was brand new did not generate an opening bid of $50. Do people really think that they can pass off new stuff as old just by using some contradictory wording? You bet, they do and it's amazing how often it works. Another thing that did not get soldand it's just as well-was a group of 500 bug deflectors. It took an opening bid of $475 to own these plastic devices that would mount on the hood of your car. This would be a great swap meet business opportunity for dot-commers who lost it all on priceline.comwatch for them for the next time they get offered. What appeared to be a very nice Morgan Plus 4, that needed a little work, was worth more than the $10,300 that was offered. The Mog stayed put, as did a very well presented 1925 Delage Series 4 Skiff which by ar omstea could not get past $27,666.66. The set of photos that were presented were spectacular and should have helped sell the car, even though it is the younger brother of the Full Classic 8 Series. Here are a few of the things that did sell, and kept us entertained while watching the bidding. eBay #426914425 - UNION OIL COMPANY PINBACK "I'M FAST." First bid: $19.95. Number of bidders: 8. SOLD AT $261.50. Date sold: 9/12/2000. Mr. Speedy was the logo for a Union Oil advertising campaign in the '50s and they were trying to convey that they offered fast service. Anything with the Mr. Speedy logo is extremely popular with gas and oil collectors and the porcelain sign with his image will bring over $3,000. This little pinback was a touch over 2" in diameter, and even though the price seems steep, it could have brought more. It was listed under Standard Oil and had it been listed correctly under Union Oil, the fanatics that collect that brand would have bid it to close to $400. eBay #416453663 - ROLLS-ROYCE PII HOOD ORNAMENT. First bid: $100. Number of bidders: 16. SOLD AT $380. Date sold: 8/31/ 2000. Sometimes we find a bargain that is too good to be true and that is usually the caseit isn't true. Rolls-Royce mascots have been reproduced in prodigious quantities and require close inspection prior SCM Showcase Gallery to spending more than you would for a decorative doodad. Often the description will tell the tale. This piece was listed as silver plated, and the originals were produced in brass and chrome plated. Perhaps the seller was incorrect and the piece is real. If so, the buyer got a bargain as an authentic one should garner at least $700. If not, it's a nice conversation piece. eBay #403440855 - MAURICIO GUGELMIN AUTOGRAPHED PHOTOGRAPH. First bid: $4. Number of bidders: 1. SOLD AT $4. Date sold: 8/14/ 2000. If CART wants a pointer as to where some of the public relations problems exist with this series, they should Marvido Gawrirn I n , - take a look at this. An 8" x 9" autographed photograph of Pac West journeyman driver Mauricio Gugelmin, at speed, selling for less than a Big Mac with fries. Granted, Gugelmin does not have the fan support of a Michael Schumacher or Jeff Gordon, but at one time he was fairly popular. Clearly, his followers have drastically waned based on the lack of interest in his photo. eBay Motors #41925764 - 1971 ALFA ROMEO MONTREAL V8. Opening bid: $923.06. Number of bidders: 23. SOLD AT: $7,610. Date sold: 9/3/2000. This vehicle was stated to have been the seller's father's car since inventory, books and records. The price guides state that this is a vehicle that should sell in the $14,000-16,000 range but with one selling at Brooks Geneva in March for $6,845 and this one for $7,610-perhaps the guides are due for a second look. eBay #423296882 - 1950s HOT ROD CLUB JACKET. Opening bid: $9.89. Number of bidders: 32. SOLD AT $1,025. Date sold: 9/8/2000. Vintage Hot Rod jackets are hot. If you think this was a bunch to pay for one. . .wrong! Several others have recently sold in the $1,500 range so by that standard, this one was a bargain. And it's just the thing to wear to a reception at Bruce Meyer's garage or at the next Goodguys gathering. eBay Motors #429625172 - 1996 PORSCHE 911 CARRERA 993. Opening bid: $46,000. Number of bidders: 14. SOLD AT $58,000. Date sold: 9/15/2000. On the surface, this would • - ,airliMIIIMIM1111111111V. the early '80s.

His feedback rating is (-2) and on both of his previous transactions he failed to contact the seller and complete the purchase. Advice to the owner: don't release the title until cash is in hand.
