Shifting Gears by Keith Martin Give That Car an "A" t SCM, we often describe cars as being "first tier" or "second tier" collectibles. These terms are used intuitively, rather than being based on any analytical system. While putting together this year's Pocket Price Guide, we were reviewing our five-star shortterm appreciation rating, and felt it left something to be desired. The short-term appreciation scale, which we created five years ago in our first Pocket Price Guide, awards one to five stars to each model, based on our appreciation prediction for the coming year. Five stars indicates we believe a model will appreciate much more than the market at large during the coming year, four stars somewhat less, three stars is given for a car that will increase in value along with the market at large, two stars for slightly less than market appreciation, and a single star for a model car we believe will lag significantly behind the market, and may actually go down in value. In practical use, the short-term appreciation rating has its limitations. It can be misleading about the overall position of a car in the hierarchy of collectibles. For instance, if we believe 300SL coupes to be fully priced at the moment, which we do, and unlikely to escalate dramatically in the next twelve months, we would assign them a three-star, or average, rating. But a Gullwing coupe will never be average. It will always be a highly sought-after collectible, one for which there will always be buyers if it is priced right. On the other hand, if we think Ferrari SWBs are going to accelerate dramatically in price during the next 12 months, which we do, and we give them a five-star rating, does that mean they are more collectible than a Gullwing? In the short term, perhaps. But over time, no. You see the dilemma. With a shortterm rating scale, the current position of the car in the market, vis a vis its expected price change in the next 12 months, becomes easily confused with its overall, long-term desirability. To address this issue, we have cre- ther, a coupe with the smaller V8 quickly gets pushed aside when a fastback from the same year, fitted with a 271-horsepower engine becomes available. The fastback 271-hp we would rank as a B. We would assign a D to the Mustang coupe if it had a six-cylinder engine, indicating that when so equipped, collectors would generally not seek this car out. And our F grade goes to hopeless models like the Alfa Romeo Alfetta sedans and the Maserati BiTurbos—cars that had inherent mechanical or construction flaws, and that lacked other redeeming virtues to make up for them. Please understand that these five tiers assume some degree of collectibility to begin with—you won't find Ford Mustang us or base Plymouth Volares in the Pocket Price Guide. Even a nasty, rubber-bumpered 1979 MG will still be more desirable, to an en', thusiast, than a perfect four-door Taurus. A strong word of caution here—don't confuse either the shortterm five-star appreciation rating, or the long-term A-F grade, with the inherent abilities of the underlying car. For instance, the Porsche 928 is a car with no appreciation potential, and with no meaningful future as a collectible. We give it one star for appreciation potential (the worst), and rank it as an F-grade collectible (also the worst). Yet the 928 is also universally regarded as one of the great grand touring cars of all time, with prodigious performance. But for a variety of reasons, it will never get into the collectible car Hall of Fame. Part of the delay in producing the 2002/03 Pocket Price Guide was related to implementing this system of long-term collectibilty. For the many of you who have been so anxiously waiting, I apologize. You will find your Pocket Price Guide included in the polybag with this month's issue. I hope you find it useful, and that the ancillary articles on collecting provide some insights. If you didn't participate in our renewal program that included a Pocket Price Guide, and wish to order one at this time, they are just $14.95 plus shipping. Call our subscriptions coordinator, Kristen Hall-Geisler, toll-free at 877/219-2605, extension 208, or e-mail service@ sportscarmarket.com . Gullwings will always be A-grade collectibles. ated a long-term rating system for collectible cars. For simplicity's sake, the SCM grading system has five tiers: A, B, C, D and F, with A being the highest. Here's how it works. A first-tier, A-grade collectible is a car like an Alfa 8C 2300 Monza, a Shelby Cobra 289 or a Porsche 550 Spyder. These cars, assuming they are in good condition, will always have a following and will always bring strong money when they are offered for sale. They embody the attributes of style, performance, historical significance, rarity and competition history that often typify firstrank collectibles. Think "blue-chip" stocks. A 1970 Porsche 911T would be considered a B-grade collectible. For a variety of reasons, including style, performance and historical significance, it will always be desirable, but not at the same level as, say, a 1967 911S, which we would rate an A. An example of a C-grade car would be a 1965 Mustang coupe with a 260-cubic-inch V8 and automatic transmission. It's an interesting car, and still handsome, but was built in such huge numbers that it will never command the undivided attention of the collector market. Fur- On the Cover Charles J. Maher saw this 1935 Auburn Boattail Speedster, back-lit by the late afternoon sun, at a car show in Michigan. He created the 16 x 24-inch painting eight years ago, using acrylic on Alucobond, which consists of layers of aluminum sandwiched between polyethylene. The Raggedy Andy doll by the front wheel belonged to his then threeyear-old nephew Travis, who is now 11 years old and racing go-karts. Maher grew up in Miami and learned to drive in his family's 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air. He went to work at Ford designing automobiles in 1968, and became an independent artist 20 years later. His paintings have appeared on the cover ofRoad&Track,AutoWeek, and the November '01 cover of SCM. Maher, who lives in the Detroit area, is a member of the Automotive Fine Art Society. His work has been shown at the Amelia Island and Pebble Beach concours. While this painting has been sold, if there is enough interest, Maher will consider a limited edition of prints.

L  Dear SCM: I am writing to clear up some inaccuracies in the February 2002 "Sheehan Speaks" ("Clone Wars," page 18). In the article, he mentions both Ferrari 250 TR, S/N 0720/TR, and Alfa 8C 2900, S/N 412021. Mr. Sheehan states that Wessels "...went about finding the You Write We Read All letters are subject to editing. Please address correspondence to SCM, PO Box 16130, Portland, OR 97292. Fax 503/253-2234, e-mail: mail@sportscarmarket.com proverbial tachometer needle from which the 8C 2900, S/N 412021, could be reborn." This implies that there was essentially nothing left of S/N 412021, a completely incorrect assumption. To find out the truth, one need only speak with either of David Biggs's three sons; Major Michael T. Lilley, the new owner of the property on which the cars were located; or Henry Wessels, a long-time Biggs family friend and the man who located and recovered three of the cars from the old Biggs farm. S/N 412021 as found after the fire... There is no secret, deep dark conspiracy here. You can't take the Chequered Flag if your car doesn't make the event!

In addition, there are detailed photos of the restoration that the former owner, Rodney Felton, performed on the car. For the record, this 2.9 Alfa can be touched, smelled and inspected by anyone who still doubts the efforts of Mr. Wessels and Mr. Felton.

What is a good, fresh re-spray and what is a bad fresh one? Cheers!—Thomas Hart, Raleigh, NC—Thomas, in general, a good fresh respray is one where the substrate is properly prepared, so the paint lays flat with no noticeable flaws, bubbles, runs or other imperfections. A poor one will bear evidence of shoddy prep work, with some or all of the above problems apparent. Blowing on a coat of paint is not so difficult.

1111111111111r —Roccabianca, Italy ing my never-sufficient old car budget and figuring out when and how to get away from my international law practice—I received a storage bill for the world's most expensive partially restored Alfa Romeo Sprint. A lot of readers are under the mistaken impression that the SCM staff, with the obvious exception of editor Martin, are keen, disciplined, experienced warriors in the dog-eat-dog arena of old cars. Actually, we are dumber than a box of rocks. f guys are dumb, then car guys are dumber still, and hard-core gear heads are the dumbest, if not totally clueless. As I was getting organized for the 2002 European racing season—allocat- bought another. What I had wanted was a 1957 Alfa Sprint SV, the lightweight (plexiglass windows, alloy doors) race version of the street car that dominated its class for years. Instead, I bought the Sprint in question. Rule 1.' Stay focused on the car you want to buy. Do not buy a "substitute." There exist the "10 Golden Rules" for buying and restoring old cars. We all know these rules, and we all know that if even one comes into play, we should immediately walk away from the car. In the case of Alfa Romeo Sprint, chassis number 1060—built in November 1955, with 1956 Veloce engine number 008—I violated all 10 of them. This is a long and expensive story. In 1992, I had just sold a car, and since my wallet is incapable of holding money, I immediately  The $4,000 check was sent and the carcass was hauled to my friend's garage. He took a photo. I received it. Okay, okay, so I made a little $4,000 mistake, I thought. These things happen. The big rule in the old car world is Rule 5a: When you make a mistake in buying a car, stop right there, cut your loses, and get the hell out. The corollary is Rule 5b: If a restoration takes more than two years, stop and sell the project. However, not content to make a little mistake (see box of rocks above), I compounded violate Rule 5b (If it not done in two years, sell the car). Nonetheless, the "restoration" continued as my friend felt guilty about the uncompleted project. From Europe Notes Golden Rules of a Restoration by Giuseppe Tomasetti In 1999 I meet Wayne Obry, owner of Motion Products with John Kies and Bill Murphy, at the Mille Miglia. Wayne had restored a Ferrari 166 for a Wisconsin client. Though over-restored in the American way, the car ran flawlessly throughout the event, which is rather uncommon for Italian cars restored in the US. Ignoring Rule 5a (If you make a mistake, cut your losses and sell the car), I figured these were the guys who could save my Alfa. Of course, it never dawned on me that my investments were what needed saving, if not yours truly (see box of rocks above). Tom asetti's '55 Sprint (right) in the process of absorbing $40k. Yes, I bought the car from a friend. Rule 2: Do not buy a car from a friend He swore the car had raced at Sebring in 1959 and 1960, and promised to get the documentation. Rule 3: Never buy a car with reputed, but undocumented race history. In fact, the car had raced for the Texas Alfa Romeo Team (TART), had been SCCA regional class winner and had gone to the Nationals from 1961 to 1964. Not exactly Sebring. the error when my friend said he could restore it within a year or so for a total of $8,000. Hey, that's still cheaper than an SV, I rationalized, so I told him go ahead. Did! mention we live eight time zones apart? Rule 6: A restoration must be done within viewing distance. The next part is years long and tedious, but suffice it to say my friend signed up for welding lessons, I bought a couple of parts cars, and he cut them up to replace all the rustedout parts of the Sprint. Rule 7: Never ever, buy a rusty car So, the car ended up in their shop. Now for those of you who don't know anything about Motion Products in Neenah, Wisconsin, suffice it to say that they have a world-class restoration shop—maybe the best in the US. Plus, they are fun guys and real gear-head racers. Have I mentioned that at this point I was They went at the car in their usual professional way. They had to redo all the work done by my friend, who apparently did not do well in welding class or primer/wet-sanding 101. The Alfa was soon on its way to becoming the most perfect series one Sprint in the world, albeit still a mongrel mating a Normale (Solex-equipped) chassis with a Veloce engine. into the car for $17,250.60? Despite having now broken three rules, I was not about to stop (see box of rocks above). Rule 4: Do not buy a car sight unseen. Not only did I buy the car without a second opinion or inspection, not to mention a photo, but I also paid $4,000. For those of you not paying attention, in 1992 market prices were at rock bottom and a complete, restored Alfa Sprint SV could be had for less than $30,000. 14  Well, my friend kept giving positive reports, but he kept asking for parts from Italy, like headlights, a dash, wheels, a cylinder head, and other incredibly expensive odds and ends. Rule 8: Always buy a complete car; as the "little" bits and pieces cost more than gold. I kept sending checks. Rule 9:A restoration must be followed "hands on" on a regular basis— no viewy, no checky. So confident was I (again, see box of rocks above) that! actually submitted an application to the 1994 Monterey Historic Races. I was accepted, and ordered a set of Dunlop race tires. Three more years passed. I stopped sending checks, which is good, but continued to Well, $23,284.73 later, (the Ferrari SWB and Alfa Monza 2300 the Sprint was sitting next to should have been a clue to the quality, thoroughness and expense of Motion Products' work), I decided to put the Alfa in storage. Rule 10: Never have any work done without getting an estimate beforehand. I will stop my story here and ask you, the astute SCM reader who would never be found in this position, if there exists a Rule 11. I would like Rule 11 to provide a solution that restores fiscal sanity to my world, and delivers a restored car, on budget and on time, to my garage. The first reader to provide me with Rule 11 will get the opportunity to become the owner of the Alfa for $20,267.66, just onehalf of my total investment today, which totals $40,535.33. • Sports Car Market

Market Review &  Buyer's Guide 1961 Ferrari 250  Chassis number: 2549GT portant in racing, where it was said, "to finish first, you must first finish," it was reliable. That reliability carried over to 250 GTs that never saw the race track, creating confident and satisfied owners. By 1961 competition pressure had persuaded Ferrari to create high-performance versions of the 250 GT SWB Berlinetta. Known as the 168 Comp./61s and sometimes called "SEFAC hot rods," one steel-bodied car, built during the construction of many of the Comp./ I3 61s, was delivered with a comprehensive selection of Comp./61 performance features, making it a true factory hot rod: 2549GT. 2549GT was built to US specifications. In addition to the Tipo 168F engine, it was built with a cold air box, 40-mm Weber carbs, aluminum front and rear bulkheads, outside fuel filler, ribbed alloy case competition transmission, full Abarth competition exhaust system with SNAP exhaust extractor tips, 8 x 34(4.25:1) rear axle ratio, black-face competition instruments, a metal dashboard and single floor skins without insulation, all highly specific competition specification items. These features are documented in the Ferrari factory build sheets. Years produced  Number produced  Original list price  SCMPrice Guide  Chinetti sold 2549GT upon receipt to pioneer television entertainer and personality Dave Garroway, creator of the Today Show. He paid $17,900 for 2549GT, a premium of some 40% over the New York price of a standard 250 GT SWB Berlinetta. It was never raced, serving only as a road car for Garroway for a period of six years until sold through Atlanta Ferrari dealer Don Fong to Terry King in 1967. King used the car as a daily short-wheelbase chassis was born. Pininfarina was selected to dress the chassis and the result was the impressive 250 GT Berlinetta, commonly called the SWB or Short Wheelbase. approx. 90 steel-bodied cars, 75 alloy-bodied approx. $13,500 Steel versions: $750,000- Tune-up/major service  Distributor cap  $850,000; Alloy versions: $950,000$1,200,000; SEFAC hot rods: $1,500,000- $1,800,000 $2,000 $450 (two required) Chassis #  Left frame member by steering box Engine #  Web site  Alternative  Right rear above motor mount Club ..

This SWB is spectacularly presented in a rich dark French Blue with tan leather interior and chrome Bon -ani wire wheels. It of course retains all its important Comp./61 options. The engine benefited from improved porting and high-lift cams during its rebuild and now delivers more than the factoryrated 285 hp. Organically sensual, superbly restored and uniquely configured, 2549GT is unique among the very small club of Ferrari dual-purpose gran turismos. It has ample room for a week's necessities for two and is ready for the drive to Palm Beach where its performance will startle the competitors at Moroso and its appearance will awe the onlookers at the Cavallino Classic.

They have a handsome profile that draws attention even when surrounded by more exotic machinery. They are comfortable and can effortlessly handle the duties of a vintage tour They are also extremely potent and capable of running in the front of most vintage races. The SWB is a car you can take to any event and know you brought the right car Terry King, a ballroom dance instructor in Atlanta, Georgia, bought this particular car when he was in his early 20s and it was the love ofhis life. He drove it through college and as it became a little tatty, he started taking it apart for refurbishing. One thing led to another and the project became a fullblown restoration. As the paint was removed, a seriously distorted front fender—a remnant of a previous botched repair—proved to be afinancial hurdle that moved the restoration to the back burner Over the next 10 years, as his salary allowed, Terry col- 1959-62 lected parts and restored pieces in preparation of the eventual reassembly. Unfortunately, as the bodywork was finally being poformed, Terry succumbed to cancer and never got to see his beloved SWB in its finished state. The auction text does an excellent job of portraying the unique virtues of SWB S/N 2549GT but, at a price so close to the million-dollar mark, a very special car is expected. 2549GT is just a steel-bodied car without competition history. It was built at a time when special features were not uncommon and its performance is unproven. Its condition and pedigree brought a pricejust over the high end of the SCMprice guide, but $100,000 less than a more worn steel-bodied car with some competition history brought at the Bonhams Gstaad sale a month before. However this was a smart purchase. The car has been out of circulation for decades and was relatively unknown, so the exposure it will get in the next few years will embellish its provenance. Purchased by an SCM subscriber who uses his cars, we can expect to see the car at future historic events.

Russian Roulette, Ferrari Style have a client who has purchased many modern Ferraris over the phone with no inspection, including an F50, a pair of F40s, a 550 Maranello and numerous 360 coupes and Spyders. All of the cars arrived exactly as described, that is, "essentially a new car with no stories." Lulled into a sense of complacency by the ease of these transactions, he recently purchased an early V12 2+2, which was described as "restored to new-car standards with no stories." No pre-purchase inspection, no test drive, nothing. When the car arrived, it was beautiful in its fresh, high-dollar paint job, the redone chrome sparkled in the Southern California sunlight, and the immaculate Connolly leather interior looked as if it had never been sat in. The new owner drove the car around the block, commented on how "vintage" it felt (that being Ferrarese for clunky and heavy) and put it into his warehouse.

The estimate to repair the leaks was $300.

A few days later, after the many fuel leaks were repaired, it was back to FAI for a very short test drive. Within two city blocks the list grew to include an overdrive that didn't work (three yikes!); a rotten driveshaft rubber coupling; a differential that leaked and had that very expensive bucket-of-rocks death rattle (a $3,000 to $5,000 yikes); worn-out shocks ($1,500); and a thoroughly worn-out front suspension 1401 12th Avenue • Seattle, WA 98122 (206) 329-7070 For complete inventory, visit our website @ www.ferrariofseattle.corn 1999 355 Fl Spider - Two to choose from.

($2,500 to $4,000). In FAI's estimation, all of the above work was desperately needed, and the car was better off not being driven until these things were fixed. (Well, I suppose they could wait on the overdrive and he could buzz down the freeway in fourth.) The owner, of course, didn't have a clue how bad the car was until it was inspected. He had simply assumed that "all old Ferraris drove like that." If he had had the car evaluated before he bought it, he would have walked away. There are three lessons here. First of all, when buying an old Ferrari, be skeptical of anything a seller says that isn't backed up by independent verification. With this car, it appears that the "total restoration to new car standards" went only as far as the cosmetics. The visual presentation was stunning, but everything mechanical was apparently not overhauled, just cleaned and detailed. To me, this indicates a restoration done to a budget. When choices between mechanical functionality and visual beauty came up, the owner and restorer opted to put their limited resources towards the pretty things instead of the hidden, and perhaps more important, things. Second, although we at SCMoften preach about the fiscal propriety of buying a restored car ("buy the restoration, get the car for free"), in fact, there are some real advantages to having a car restored yourself. Most important, you get to make all the decisions about the type and quality of work done. Yes, it will cost more, yes, it will take longer, and yes, there will be numerous frustrations encountered. But in the end, you will know exactly what you have under the metal skin. Finally, old cars are old cars. Buying a new Ferrari, or even a 10- or 15-year-old one that has a perfect ownership history and service records, is really not very complicated. However, with a 40-year-old V12, chances are that at some point every single part on the car has worn out and been touched. From paint to wheel bearings to exhaust tips, they've all been serviced, repaired or replaced. And for many years, when these Ferraris had little real value, they rarely received the best of care. Consequently, you can't be too careful when you buy an old car, even if it is claimed to be "as new." In fact, it will never be "as new," at best it can only be completely restored. To what standard, and to what budget, are the questions you will have to try to find answers to. If you must buy cars over the phone without an inspection, for your own fiscal sanity, please stick to late-model cars that have never been touched. Buying vintage V12s without an inspection is like playing financial Russian Roulette with a bullet in every chamber of a Desert Eagle handgun.• www.sportscarmarketCOM Cruise by.

A 2+2 coupe version on a shorter wheelbase was launched in 1965. Though mechanically similar, the newcomer had all the visual presence its progenitor lacked and came with—initially—a 1261-cc engine producing 80 bhp. Tuned HF versions provided increased performance, and formed the basis of the works' highly successful rally program. Series II cars (1970-76) came with the 90-bhp version of the later 1298-cc engine and a five-speed gearbox. This right-hand drive, 1298-cc, one-owner example was in the vendor's late father's possession from new. Regularly maintained, this well-preserved and highly original car has covered circa 50,000 miles and is described as remaining in "good/very good" condition overall, with an "excellent" engine and chassis and "as-new" interior. This vehicle sold for $5,716, including buyer 's premium, at the Bonhams Olympia sale, held December 3, 2001. The price is indicative of the general market's estimation of this model of Lancia: a great car nobody (well, almost nobody) cares about. The Fulvia line was comprised of three models: the Berlina, a boxy fourdoor sedan; the factory-designed and built coupe, which is the subject of this profile; and the Sport, a Zagato-bodied coupe. In the Fulvia pecking order, the high-performance "HF" (hi-fl, yes, as in stereos) models with slightly more horsepower, alloy doors, hood and trunk lids and Plexiglas windows in 1.3-liter and 1.6-liter versions are the most desirable, followed by the Zagato-bodied "Sport" and finally the "basic" coupe. At home on road or track, the HF coupes and Zagato Sports Fulvias scored many successes in international competition, including numerous outright victories in championship rallies from 1965 to 1972, as well as class wins in distance races including Daytona, Sebring and the Targa Florio. Fulvias also exhibit the elegant engineering and cost-no-object design of all pre-Fiat Lancias, and are far more mechanically sophisticated than contemporary Alfa GTVs or MGB GTs. Fiat took over Lancia in 1969 and introduced a "Series II" Fulvia in 1970. While these Series II cars did reflect some of the bean-counting mentaW of the new management, their essential nature was not compromised The main additions to the Series II were a five-speed transmission, twin calipers on Number produced Years produced   Tune-up/major service  Distributor cap Price new   Chassis #  Engine #  Club  Web site  Alternatives  the front brakes, a new and improved handbrake system and a thermostatically controlled engine fan. The five-speed in the later cars is a mixed blessing. It does give quieter highway cruising but has a much less precise feel than the earlier four-speed and is more difficult to use in spirited driving 20 • When buying a Fulvia coupe, as with any Italian car of the '60s or '70s, check the condition of the sills and floors. Look for rust in the rear outriggers of the powertrain-supporting front subframe and in the two rearmost mounting boxes where the subfiame is attached to the body. In addition, cracking in the paint on the front fenders can indicate a nearterminal case of rust in the upper subfi-ame mountings, or flexing in the mounts from crash damage. Especially if the paint on a car you are considering is fresh, be sure to check these points.

Selling a Fulvia, or any Lancia for that matter; is challenging in today's marketplace. Auctions are not their natural home, especially for Fulvias, as the market for them is so thin. Lancia owners (along with Alfa and MG owners) have a reputation for being notoriously tight-fisted, and would often rather spend months scouring the classifieds looking for the deal of a lifetime on a rusty old beater than stepping up and paying a premium, in a public arena, for a top-flight car. (It should be noted that most hard-core Lancia enthusiasts have a barn full of these hopeless cases, all, of course, bought at a bargain price.) All of this is reflected in the price paid here for a solid condition #2 car in the UK, which remains one of the strongest markets for older Lancias. 1965-76 113,599 $3,520 (US, 1967), $4,950 (UK, 1973) $350-$400 $30 On bell housing above starter motor Hence, getting top dollar for a nicely done Fulvia HF or Sport requires finding an enthusiast who has outgrown the infantile notion of costeffective DIY projects, and is prepared to part with an extra $5,000 to $10,000 to have a car that is ready to go today. Most Lancias, with a few exceptions, such as the Aurelia B24 Spider America, Flaminia Zagato and Stratos, are not great (or even good) investments. However; as an affordable, uniquely conceived and enjoyable ride, the Fulvias are hard to beat.

From Grand Classics to Twin Stripes of Smoking Ruhhor 1957 Ford Intruder Custom Wagon Chassis number: A7LR108948 reated by Troy Trepanier, Intruder came out of the box in San Bernardino, California, with three miles showing on the odometer. Six days and 2,900 cross-country miles later, on the Hot Rod Power Tour, Intruder had performed flawlessly, and even returned 20 miles per gallon. The goal for Rad Rides, the builders of Intruder, was to set new standards in style and performance, as part of bringing the new generation of super rods to a higher level. By any standards, this mission was accomplished. As you would expect from a modern super rod, the sleek Intruder is stuffed with performance components, developed by Summit Racing. It is powered by a 351-c.i. Ford Racing engine with aluminum heads, a trick-flow fuel injection manifold and custom valve covers. A custom-mounted supercharger boosts output to 510 horsepower and 450 pounds of torque. A special Summit Racing bell housing links the engine to a Borg-Warner six-speed transmission and Centerforce clutch. Stopping power comes from Baer Racing, with 131/2-inch rotors and four-piston calipers up front, and 14-inch rotors with four-piston calipers at the rear. Finished in PPG's burnt orange and champagne, the creature comforts of Intruder's interior are first class, providing a high level of comfort for those long days of power hot-rod touring. Without question, this car is an uncompromising statement of the current state of the art in super rods.

The market for super rods is just beginning to develop, especially for cars with a connection to well-known builders such as Troy Trepanier, Pete Chapouris, Rob Ida, Roy Brizio and Boyd Coddington. Instead of building cars on spec, these builders have a line of customers waiting for their latest creations, regardless of what the price might be. And when you factor in the hours involved in the design and fabrication of a topflight super rod, even $130,000 starts sounding reasonable. A bonus of owning Intruder is that the car itself has a celebrity status. Being featured on countless magazine covers and participating in the Hot Rod Power Tour makes this 1957 Ford Del Rio wagon a car that will always be recognized. If there is a downside, it has to do with the changing tastes in the hot rod market. It's impossible to determine if, 10 years from now, Intruder will be seen as a timeless April, 2002  The more this car is used, the more risk there is of damaging the custom paint job and interior Trepanier 's drivetrains have a reputation for being bulletproof so the new owner won't have to worry about expensive rebuilds in the near future. A little advice to the new owner— if the car needs work of any kind, from touching up the paint to adjusting the suspension, ship it back to Rad Rods. This isn't exactly the kind of car you want to entrust to Billy's Velvet Hammer Collision Repair Did the buyer pay too much? Considering that the car was offered at no reserve with more than 3,000 buyers on hand to take a run at it, this has to be considered retail, but not crazy, money. In fact, as the pool of affluent baby boomers continues to grow, there may be money to be made on Intruder in the next couple ofyears. I believe that the muscle car and hot rod market is headed towards levels formerly reserved for foreign exotics and American classics. 1957 Well-done, attractive cars with no real history or expert-builder provenance are bringing $50,000 to $75,000. That makes the $130,000 paid here seem like a reasonable premium to get afresh-out-of-thebox, already-famous car by a premium constructor And we can expect to see the next super rod by Trepanier bring even more. Could the price be replicated in another year? If the market conditions stay the same and the interest in American cars continues, yes. Even today, if you can find another Trepanier car for sale, you can be sure that the seller is going to use Intruder as a benchmark for his asking price. Craig Jackson took a chance when he loaded his auction with highquality hot rods. But the sale of Intruder, Black Jack ($172,800) and Sniper ($162,000) vindicated Craig's decision, and indicates that we are watching a new and quickly rising market.—Steve Dorsey (Historic data and photo courtesy of auction company)• 21

MILANO  1966 Alfa Romeo 2600 Sprint The car is 95% complete, with all the difficult-to-get parts in place. Most of the rusty problem areas are readily apparent, as the car has been in this paint and in the California sun for some 17 years now. It is surprisingly straight. Due to floor and spare tire well rust, I recommend complete pan replacement and trunk floor replacement, not patching. The tire jack went through the passenger floor at one time due to improper jacking. There is bubbling under the paint. Alfa 2600s have a classic 2.6-liter, DOHC, alloy straight six-cylinder engine with a five-speed manual transmission. The engine alone is valued at $2,000 to $2,500. Other features include triple Solex Plili carbs and disc brakes all around. The Giugiaro design, executed by Bertone, is timeless and echoed in cars like the Iso Rivolta and Gordon-Keeble. This is the very car that at one time inspired the statement "If you simply must have a classic six-cylinder Alfa, this is probably the model to buy. Although the 2600 is the most bulletproof Alfa of all time, according to an Alfa engineer who knows such things, they never had the charm of smaller Alfas and were not successful in the US."

Afellow Alfista called to tell me that the transport company had been searching high and low in attempts to locate a new windshield for the car I called the company and, without identifying myself asked i f they needed a windshield for a 2600. "Yeah," came the hopeful response, "do you know where we can find one?" I assured them I could, and found a used windshield locally, but it too was broken in transit. I then located what was probably the last new 2600 windshield in the world, at AFRA in Italy. Fortunately, the transportation company picked up all costs. Clearly, for even a semi-exotic, the windshield is often the most problematic part to replace. As soon as I got the car, Iliad the windshield installed and gave it a new 22  red paint job. For several years I tinkered with the car starting it regularly to keep things lubricated. I also bought a $750 "parts car" against the day I 'd be able to afford a complete restoration. The parts car was complete, but it wasn't running and had a badly dented rear fender It also had a wild, multi-colored paint job with "lace" patterns laid over green, red and yellow geometric shapes. Because I found this car in the San Francisco area, I presumed it had belonged at one time to a wealthy hippie. In 1998, when I finally realized that I 'd never get around to restoring the red car, I traded the pair of 2600s (even up) to a friend for a nice 1962-66 Alfetta Sport Sedan with an automatic transmis6,999 sion. The new owner followed up on the hunch that the parts car belonged to a wealthy hippie, and found that it had been registered to a "J. Lennon at Capitol Records." The parts car with the hippie paint job was ex-John Lennon. The value of the two 2600s suddenly reversed. After about a year of ownership, my friend ran out of garage space, so I agreed to store the cars for him until he found a buyer With the two 2600s sitting in my driveway, I repeatedly confronted the temptation to own them once more.  $8,500-$11,000 approx. $200 $50 $5,400 Engine bulkhead Intake side of block I finally decided that they represented a phase of my Alfa experience that I should not revisit. My friend's advertisement for the pair focused on the "ex-John Lennon 2600" and attracted an Alfa enthusiast in Wisconsin, who bought them. Since the deal did not involve me, I never asked the purchase price. The Wisconsin owner was intent on restoring the Lennon car, so there was now a real danger of my red 2600 becoming the "parts" car Fortunately, instead of being parted out, it was put up for sale on eBay to raise funds for the restoration of the Lennon car A noble motive, but $1,900 isn't going to get him very far When you consider some of the cars that have been wrecked, burned or even buried, and then brought back to respectability, the challenge Sports Car Market

of the car pictured here is relatively mild. On the other hand, the objects of most automotive archaeology are inherently valuable and justib, the money required for a proper restoration. The cost of renewing this car will far exceed its market value for the foreseeable future: only enthusiasts need apply. There's no doubt regarding the attractions of this model. The 2600 elegant Bertone body adds to the lure of Alfa's alloy, twin-cam, inline sbc. The Giulietta arms-akimbo posture does not apply to this ultimately comfortable tourer: the seating position is high and well-cushioned Though the transmission on this car has the same gear ratios as the Giulia box, the 2600:s 4.7:1 final axle ratio (compared to the 4.5 of the Giulia) makes first gear a real stump-puller You can easily get underway in second with the added torque and mechanical advantage of the 2600, and third through fifih gears are optimum for anything up to about 110 mph. A well turned-out 2600 Sprint is an all-day 90-mph cruiser that is easily the equal, in comfort and safety at high speeds, to nearly any GT car built in the same period The $1,900 paid here is slightly less than the value of this 2600s component parts. Moreover, it represents a very modest appreciation over the $1,500 1 spent for it some 17 years ago. From one perspective, the new owner is getting one of the real bargains in collectible cars. The fantasy of an inexpensive restoration looms large here, especially for those whose enthusiasm exceeds their means. The reality, however, is that anything less than a professional restoration will doom this car either to certain destruction or to still another restoration by some future, better-funded owner In its current state, this car is a still-unfulfilled promise. There's a larger issue, however, and that's the survival of an important Alfa model that deserves conservation. At, ownership of the car only saved it from destruction. As time passes, should the value of this car increase, the investment of a professional restoration would become more reasonable. But the break-even point between the cost of a restoration and the car market value is still probably at least a decade away.

Equipped with a four-cylinder engine, the 100 BN1 series cars featured a production run exceeding 10,000 units, while only about 4,500 of the later BN2 series cars were produced. Most enthusiasts do not differentiate the two series substantially, as the only noticeable variation on the BN2 was the adoption of a four-speed/overdrive gearbox in lieu of the three-speed/ overdrive on the earlier cars. Fitted with highly sporting coachwork, AustinHealeys were and still are extremely attractive. With their sleek folding windshields, these roadsters had the look of great touring cars, which consequently they were by almost every definition. Spartan interiors created a racy atmosphere in the cockpit and the engine, though a modest four-cylinder, provided ample power that few complained about. The big four gave the Austin-Healey 100/4 two-thirds more power than its MG-TD contemporary and 120% more torque, all in a streamlined, lower and better balanced package that weighed no more than the MG It is no surprise that production got underway quickly and ramped up to the rate of 100 cars per week, mostly for the important American market where they fit neatly into the price gap between Triumph's TR2 and the larger and more expensive XI( 120 and XK 140.

e  By Gary Anderson  ill e received several letters in response to our answer in the February issue to Fred Hammerle's question about early Jaguar XK 140s and whether there might be any surviving with an earlier serial number than his S-810440. Clark Wilson, a rocket scientist from Austin, Texas, informed us that he owns S810229. Ken Beck told us that he owns S810123 and knows of the existence of S810027. Tom Miller can beat that with his XIC 140— S810017—which he believes was the 14th built. If you're interested in getting more data on your XK, John Elmgreen wrote to say that he keeps records of all XKs worldwide. He recommends the Jag-Lovers Web site (www.jaglovers.org), which includes his XK-Lovers group (www.jag-lovers.org/xk-lovers/) . He is aware of several XI( 140s with serial numbers that place them in the first 20 built. However, John notes that since Fred's car is an "MC" model—a designation that means it was a Special Equipment car built with a C-type head—it would be more valuable than a standard XK 140. John would be happy to receive information from all owners of XK 120s, 140s and 150s, and is pleased to provide any information he can from the database he has created. He can be reached at elmgreen@compuserve.com . Dear Mr. Anderson: I would appreciate any comments you can offer in terms of the collectibility and current and future values of a TVR Griffith Series 200.—Richard Silver, Southboro, MA We need to make a distinction here, since TVR produced a "Griffith" model from 1991 to 1993, powered by a modified Rover V8 engine. For my money, this was one of the most attractive roadsters ever built, and offered supercar performance at very attractive prices. Unfortunately, it is one of many great cars that never made it to the United States. However, what Mr. Silver is referring to when he specifies the "Series 200" is a model built by TVR from 1963 to 1965 and powered by a Ford 289-c.i. V8 engine. To say that it wasn't as attractive as the Shelby Cobra that used the same powerplant is an understatement. However, being just as light as the Cobra, it was incredibly quick, though crudely built and prone to overheat. The story of the TVR company—the initials in the name are the consonants from the first name of founder Trevor Wilkinson, who April, 2002  built his first special in 1947 and his first TVR in 1954—is a fascinating one. Like so many small English car builders, the company had continuing fmancial troubles and didn't become a mature concern until the 1970s. Built, like all previous TVRs, in the seaside resort town of Blackpool, the '60s Griffith used standard TVR construction with a backbone-style welded tube chassis carrying a fiberglass body. Like all TVR models of the period, it was built in very small numbers. Including the betterdeveloped Griffith Series 400, which was produced in 1964 and 1965 and sported a distinctive cut-off tail, only about 300 Griffiths were built. Rarity and performance must count for something, overcoming poor build quality, quirky styling and challenging handling. Though you can't find the Griffith 200 listed in the North American value guides, Britain's Classic & Sports Car magazine indicates that an excellent example, if one can be found, is worth around $36,000. Club interest and an enthusiastic following in England suggest that the car should hold its value reasonably well. If you are thinking about buying one, be very sure about what you're getting, since many of the survivors have been pretty badly carved up by previous owners. This is definitely not a car to buy through the mail or the Internet. (Our thanks to Graham Robson, author of the definitive Collectors Guides to TVRs in two volumes, for this information.) Dear Mr. Anderson: I was at a local auction last week and a 1991 Jaguar XJ6 crossed the block It was light metallic burgundy with tan leather, 130,000 miles, straight, with one tooth broken out of the grille, but wouldn't start (a weak battery, we were told). It sold for just $3,750. Did I miss the deal of a lifetime or are the resale values of these cars just in the toilet?—B. R., Portland, OR In short, no and yes. You didn't miss the deal of a lifetime and the resale values of the pre-Ford Jaguars are in the toilet. However, if you liked the styling of this model, then it is worth your while to look for one in good Iatjc t Addressing the Mysteries of British Car Ownership Of Griffiths and Xls condition. It is true that Jaguar build quality had slipped seriously in the period leading up to the Ford acquisition. However, if you can find one that survived the 50,000 miles it took to sort these cars out, you can put your family into a graceful four-door luxury sedan with timeless styling for well under $10,000. Griffith 400 - similar to the 200 but with chopped tail. I strongly recommend the sedans built between 1987 and 1994. These can be distinguished by their headlights, missing the twin hooded headlights of the sedans that preceded them, a design feature that Jaguar returned to with the XJ8s. They were the last models to be built with the XK engine, the twin-overheadcam straight six-cylinder engine that was introduced in 1948 and continued to be used until the introduction of the new AJV8 engines in 1996. The interiors are rich with leather and wood, and performance is quite adequate to most demands. If the car didn't fall apart in the first 30,000 miles, then it should last until you're bored with it (the one that cleared the block in your local auction has probably fallen apart by now). The most common problems were with the hydraulic load levelers and thin brake discs prone to wobbly wear, both of which can be remedied with readily available aftermarket kits. Your best bet in finding a nice one is to contact your local Jaguar club. The Jaguar clubs allow all years of cars to enter concours—all you need to do is find a member who is ready to sell the one he has been showing with pride. If you do, you're likely to find one with all the trim pieces in place, the Connolly leather supple with applications of saddle soap, and the finish rich with expensive carnauba wax. We've all had to learn to live with the fact that the used-car guide lists these as worth no more than $10,000, and they are not likely to ever be collectible. They've just become classy rides for not very much money. Mr Anderson is publisher of British Car magazine. Please direct your English car questions to editorgary@aol.com; fax 650/ 949-9685.• 25

Stunning in silver with blacktop, this automobile contains modem engineering advances including fuel injection, and a manual transmission. Keeping tradition alive with the Beetle's endearing looks, the interior is kept simple with a large round speedometer directly above the steering column. The dash is nicely decorated with a strip ofwood laminate featuring a clock and tern- E xhibited here is the most complete and original, last ofits kind, 1979 convertible Volkswagen Beetle, with a mere 46 miles perature controls. A Blaupunkt AM/FM cassette deck sits center dash, while black vinyl seats and a white ceiling inlay keep passengers content. The new owner will have an opportunity to drive a brand-new, 23year-old classic. This car soldfor $21,450, including buyer's premium, at RM's Arizona Biltmore sale, held January 18, 2002. The 1979 VW Super Beetle convertible rode the crest of the 1970s "instant collectible" convertible craze. Worried that upcoming government safety regulations would outlaw convertibles, GM started the movement by marketing the 1976 Cadillac Eldorado as the "last American-made convertible." GM advised consumers to buy at least two of them, flatly telling television viewers to "visit your Cadillac dealer and buy a pair so you can enjoy one for now, and put away one to enjoy later:" Original list price  Years produced  Production  Tune-up/major service  Distributor cap  Chassis #  Dealers and individuals alike were asking twice the sticker price of $11,049 within a year of the end ofproduction. That market eventually collapsed and, according to the CPI Value Guide, an excellent '76 Eldorado is now worth $15,950. The other two major "buy it and don't drive it" collectible-when-new convertibles of that era were the 1978 Chevrolet Corvette Indy Pace Car edition and (ta-da) the 1979 VW convertible. Volkswagen announced that the 1979 model would be the last. Engine #  Club  Web site  On dashboard, visible from the bottom center of the windshield.

In fact, all three ofthe convertibles above arefound today in one ofthree conditions: virgins that haven't been started since dealer delivery; cars with Alternatives. 1982-93 Alfa Romeo 2000 Spider, 1974-79 MGB, Porsche 914 very low mileage (15k or less); or examples that have been used and abused, thrashed and trashed, then put away wet (f/put away at all). Realistically, hardly a month passes without a'79 VW convertible being advertised in Hemmings that couldn't be substituted for the one offered at this auction. Some are even offered by the original dealer still on the Manufacturer 's Statement of Origin instead of a title. In this case, just because the car is still new after 23 years doesn't make it exceptionally rare. On top of that, unless you plan to use one for sculpture, undriven cars aren't much fun. Inactivity is one of the worst things that can happen to a vehicle. Seals go dry, corrosion forms in brake systems and engine cylinders, and tires tend to lose their integrity. Cars like this need a thorough mechanical inspection before being put back on the road Finally, if this VW is turned into even a lightly used collector car, the "brand new" aura is gone, along with much of its inherent value. If you have a hankering for one of these that is brand-spanking new, because it brings back fond memories of the Disco Decade, the price paid here isn't too far north of the going rate. While it's over-the-top as far as all established price guides are concerned, they don't take into account the premium that an as-new" car will bring. 1971-79 10,681 (US sales) $6,800 $120 $7 Don tfeel bad ifyou missed this 46-mile Beetle.

Why Did You Sell Your SC? D ear Mr. Schrager: I saw your advertisement offering a 1983 Porsche 91ISC Cabriolet with 37,000 original miles for sale. Did you get the $22,000 you were asking? This price seems high to me. And why did you sell it—after all, you are generally high on SCs.—M. H., New Bergen, NJ Dear M. H.: I had mixed feelings about selling our Sc Cabriolet as it was in great shape with completely original silver paint, an excellent burgundy full leather interior, and even the original top with a clear back window. With just 37,000 original miles, it had all the necessary updates and was complete with tool kit, owner's manual, original touch-up paint, correct Blaupunkt stereo and so on. I bought it from an estate, and the previous owner hadn't driven it much or done much maintenance. The executor was afraid of the car, as it had a glowing brake warning light and the temperature gauge ran hot on our short test drive. He understandably wanted out. I drove it home, worried about the chain tensioners. Since the car was almost 20 years old, it was time to see what things looked like inside the cam chain housings. Not wanting to alter the stock appearance of the engine, we used the latest Turbo tensioners rather than the Carrera pressurefed units. We also wanted to install tensioner guards, Ultimately, I sold it because although it was a joy to behold, I rarely drove it. It sat in my warehouse while I ignored it and selected one of our early 911s to drive and fiddle with. There was nothing wrong with this 911S. It's just that, given my preference, I found myself enjoying the light weight, tossability and fussiness of an older 911 rather than the no-nonsense, even-keeled, almost too-perfect nature of the Sc. The Sc is an all-grown-up 911 with little of the vintage feel of the early cars. It didn't need me the way our older cars do. Perhaps that is part of the attraction I feel for some of the more difficult mounts in our stable. A dealer offered me $20,000 for the car, but I had a bit more than that in it. The 1983 SC Cab is rather rare, with just 4,187 produced in about a six-month period. Of course, the 1984-89 Carrera Cabs are nearly identical, so for the non-fanatic, there isn't much to distinguish the SCs. Still, for the low miles and original condition, at $22,000 I figured the car would go away in a hurry. I immediately got calls but, surprisingly, not from collectors. Not fussy enough to be fun. which are small discs bolted on the tensioner shafts to prevent a complete collapse. However, the cam chains had not stretched enough to allow room on the tensioner shaft for the guards to fit, so we were unable to add them. If anyone needed proof of the low miles, I guess that was it. The brake warning light was solved by changing a sensor. A new oil temperature sensor fixed the apparent overheating for the most part. However, on certain hot days, the gauge would move almost three-quarters of the way toward the red zone. Although it didn't go into the red portion of the gauge, I wasn't thrilled with anything past half-way. My guess was that the remote oil cooler in the front fender wasn't getting oil flow. To test this, I touched the exposed oil lines inside the passenger fender once the engine was warm. Since these were hot, the thermostat was working. A bad gauge? I stuck in a new one and it didn't make a difference. Was the crankcase thermostat improperly closing off flow to the main oil cooler? The thermostat in a 911 is bathed in oil and rarely fails. Even so, we replaced it. Still no difference. Finally we looked carefully at the metal oil lines running alongside the passenger side rocker panel. One of them was slightly crushed, reducing flow. Once we replaced that, all was well. Having an original-paint Porsche reminds you of how beautifully finished these cars were when new. With a coat of wax, the gorgeous silver metallic finish looked just like the paint on a new 996. April, 2002  Rather, I heard from people looking for good used Porsches. They mostly didn't care or weren't aware of the rarity. The first guy who saw it bought it and drove it home at full asking price, but not as a collectible. Instead, he was using it as a transition car. He had plans to move up to an even newer 993 Cab within a year or two. This car sold on condition alone, which is generally the case with SCs. While that surprised me, it also reinforced the notion that cars with high production figures (over 65,000 all told for the SCs) rarely increase in value as they age. They should be bought as driving experiences, not as future investments.

'29 Rolls-Royce Phantom I Henley Roadster, $264,000, RM L ast month it was the first of the Arizona auctions—Silver and eBay/Kruse—that filled our pages. They had a combined total of $7,360,090 in sales, with 450 cars changing hands. This issue we get into the heavyweights. RM had a successful day, racking up $11.7m by selling just 71 cars, a nice haul for an afternoon's work in any business, and an increase of $2m from their 2001 totals. Remarkably, at the same time that RM was playing to a packed house at the Biltmore, just twenty minutes away Barrett-Jackson was putting on a four-day automotive love fest that put the original Woodstock to shame. Craig and his gang sold 645 cars for a total of $26.9m. B-J had over 3,000 registered bidders, and more than 100,000 in total attendance. Going into this January's events, the tragic events of last September, along with the collapse of the stock market, weighed heavily on everyone's minds. Collector cars aren't, after all, exactly necessities like milk, bread and the mortgage payment. Would sellers decide this was a time to be conservative, and put off buying that 1965 Mustang convertible for another year? Would Cobras and 300SLs languish on the block? The results are clear. In a time of financial uncertainty, collectors have decided vintage cars provide a safe haven for their funds. The economy at large may be in a mini-recession, but the car market appears stronger than ever.—ED. (Due to space limitations, our review of the Russo and Steele auction will appear next month.)

The star of the day was the ex-Jack Warner 1937 Mercedes-Benz 540K Special Roadster, a ravishing design made all the more dramatic by its livery of triple black. Restored by master Mercedes specialists Paul Russell and Co. from a very sound, unmolested, original car, it had changed hands only four times from new. From its first concours appearance in 1995 until now, it had been awarded first at Pebble Beach, first in class and Best of Show at Castle Hill, first in class and Best of Show at the Dallas Concours and won the same honors at Amelia Island. In 1998 it swept the field at the New Hampshire International Speedway concours by winning four awards, including the Judges' Trophy and Best Restored car. With superb credentials like this, big bids were expected, and they were realized with a final selling price of $3,630,000. The gorgeous M-B was sent off to a new garage, belonging to an SCM subscriber, in Washington state. Oddly enough, a number of seasoned collectors remarked later that they felt this car didn't sell at its top dollar, so if three-plus million dollars for a car can be considered a good buy, perhaps the new owner really did okay at this hefty figure. In the postwar area, a quartet of Chrysler Town & Countrys from the Lloyd Mayes collection had fans of the termite wagons at a fever pitch. A '48 convertible, '49 convertible, '47 sedan and a unique '46 roadster attracted strong bidding with a final tally of $541,200 for the four. The T&C sedan and the roadster carried high-bid honors in this group, with selling prices of $143,000 each. However, it was a 1961 Ferrari 250 GT short-wheelbase Berlinetta that drove off, with another SCM subscriber destined to be behind the wheel, as the highest-selling postwar car at $902,000, falling neatly between its low and high estimates of $800,000 and $1,000,000. A nice group of affordable sports cars crossed the block and sold at reasonable figures, including a 1954 MG-TF for $19,250, a '57 MGA for $16,500, a '65 Healey 3000 for $25,300, a '69 Moretti Tour du Monde coupe for $8,800 and, perhaps the deal of the day, a 95-point '54 Austin-Healey 100/4 for $19,800. As with the other January Arizona auctions, it certainly appeared that talk of recession, a lousy stock market or other indicators of economic uncertainty did not bother car collectors. They came, they bought and they went back home with some very nice vintage motorcars on January 19 at the Biltmore.—D.B. ENGLISH #101-1929 ROLLS-ROYCE PHANTOM I Henley Roadster. Body by Brewster.

For the past six years, I have had the opportunity to participate in the Speedvision this time, we've watched the auction and the economy have their ups and downs, have bought and sold a car or two, and learned at We've gotten used to excitement and strong prices during the broadcast. But the enthusiasm of the audience, and the amounts bid, were nearly otherwordly this year. (now Speed Channel) live broadcast of the auction. As a market observer, the benefit of being in the booth is that for two days, during prime time, my attention is focused solely on what is happening on the block. It was clear from our aerial perspective that the audience was made up of excited enthusiasts who were looking for automotive dreams to put on a trailer and take back home with them. There were no flinty-eyed dealers, seeking quick flip opportunities, in the prime time gang. Rather, the auctioneers got retail and above, time after time, from the crowd of car fanatic end users sitting in front of them. Especially in the $25,000 to $100,000 range, Barrett-Jackson stands alone as a place where buyers shop as if they were in a Rodeo Drive boutique, gladly paying a premium so they can tell their friends, "I bought my car at Barrett-Jackson." It's an enviable position for an auction company to be in, and Craig Jackson and his team deserve great credit for creating the credibility, and attracting the merchandise and the bidders, that makes it all possible.—ED.

* 0 o 1.1 t's basic economics. When demand exceeds supply, values increase; when demand overwhelms supply, related commodities will also reap the benefit of the inflationary pressure. If you attended any of the auctions in Arizona during the Barrett-Jackson weekend, you were a witness to these textbook economic principles in action. At the Barrett-Jackson auction alone there were more than 3,000 registered bidders who paid their $200 fee and had letters of credit on file; however, there were only 700 cars for them to bid on. The result was over-the-top numbers for the cars. The vendors of automotiverelated collectibles, whose displays were in and around the auction tent, were left to satisfy the needs and desires of those who were unsuccessful with their automotive bidding. I One vendor from Florida, who specialized in restored vintage gas pumps, stated that he sold 17 and had orders for several more. His prices would normally be described as aggressive, with several pumps priced well above $5,000, but during this desert weekend "normal" prices go out the window. There was a series of automobilia auctions prior to the vehicles at Barrett-Jackson and the items presented included restored gas pumps, CMA Superb Collector Models of /CMA Uncompromising Quality  Jaguar D-Type, LM '57 winner I Custom-built to order.

A Rambler dealership sign realized $2,420, including buyer's premium, and a '30s Reo Car and Truck sign brought $1,100. A large Ford oval porcelain and neon dealership sign brought a market-correct price of $2,750, but a GMC Trucks sign was the buy of the auction. The rectangular porcelain sign, which had two colors of neon and was in excellent condition, sold for $1,320, including premium. It is not uncommon for GMC signs to sell for upwards of $2,500, so a price a thousand dollars higher would not have been out of line. This just goes to show that even in the superheated atmosphere of the Barrett-Jackson weekend, if you keep your wits about you, there are bargains to be found.• Under the direction of Cave Creek Classics, Russo and Steele conducted an auction of 300 lots of varied automobilia during the Arizona weekend. In the past, Cave Creek's Ed Fallon and Al Kitchen have been responsible for the automobilia event at Barrett-Jackson, but this year moved to Russo and Steele's sale. Considering there were only a few months to put this event together, it would have to be considered a success, although attendance was on the light side. They presented a wide variety of items, with the majority selling for less than $500. As is the case at any auction, a few things slipped by and sold for prices that would have to be considered bargains. A Blaz-O-Jet Rocket trike was a steal at $240 and a 1940s Velo King trike, which pulled a few dollars more to sell at $300, was equally cheap.

A very unusual and rare Packard hood ornament was in the form of the traditional Packard Cormorant but had extended "feathers" that served as a radio antenna. It sold for $1,320, making this a good buy considering the rarity of the piece. Some bidders, especially those used to cataloged auctions, expressed concern that many pieces were offered without the slightest reference to proof of their authenticity or provenance. As is the case at any auction, it pays to do your homework and seek experienced advice before spending several thousand dollars on a piece. Discovering when you get home that your newly acquired Lalique mascot was really created two years ago in China can be a real bummer. ROL1 S-ROYCE 1!

  1992-97 Subaru SVX f striking design and technical sophistication were the prime factors in determining a car's collectibility, the Subaru SVX (199297) would certainly make the grade. I Introduced in 1991 as a Giugiarodesigned show car, it wowed the public and the motoring press with its trendsetting Italian design. The SVX was both praised and criticized for its originality, especially the odd two- Appearing in the US in 1991 as a 1992 model, the SVX was Subaru's flagship product, replacing the bizarre XT with its videogame inspired upholstery and dashboard. Sadly, the market niche Subaru had developed in the US for compact four-wheel drive cars and wagons was an odd fit with a highperformance GT car. Sales were leisurely at best. part side windows. The full-time all-wheel drive in most models presaged what has become commonplace in high-performance cars, but a full decade later. override. Combined with full-time allwheel drive and an abundance of luxurious comfort features, the car was a longdistance driver's delight. The engine produces more-than-sufficient punch at any speed, and when motoring aggressively, the third-to-fourth upshift occurs at an impressive 124 mph. For 1992, this was quite a package. Many discount the SVX as a boulevard cruiser or a poseur's sports car due to its mission. However, its considerable poise and balance on the road more than adequately live up to the old Jaguar motto of "Grace, Space, Pace." There are two potential trouble spots common to used SVXs. The transmission can suffer from heat-induced problems that can be an expensive fix ($1,800 to $4,200 depending on the shop and the problem). Symptoms include a delay while shifting, a thud when shifting to reverse, and the inability for fourth gear to engage. Wheel bearings also tend to fail prematurely, and this starts as a whine coming from the back of the car. Parts and labor amount to $230 per wheel. However, headaches other than these are few. Retail for a decent SVX LS-L is less than $7,000. Look for one that has already had the transmission replaced, and hopefully has less than 100,000 documented miles.

However, a well-kept example will provide thousands of miles of brisk, sophisticated motoring at a very reasonable price.—David Swig• The Best Just Got Better! Several models were offered over the course of the SVX's lifetime. Initially, there was an LS and an LS-L model. The LS-L, which sold for several thousand more than the base model, came with a "Touring Package" consisting of leather, more power options, a better stereo, and the like. The only models to stay away from are the 1994 L and LS models, and the 1995 L, as these were front-wheel drive only.

Bizzarrini: The Genius Behind Ferrari's Success Authors: Jack Koobs de Hartog, Rodolphe de Biolley and Philippe Olczyk 8 x 8 inches. Hardbound, 230 pages Size:  Price:  Rating: Visit www.classicscars.corn tofind out i f they 'ye decided yet Bizzarrini fanatics *** Thoughtful enthusiasts * Giotto Bizzarrini was an Italian engineer associated with several famous constructors, including Ferrari, Lamborghini and Iso. He formed his own company in 1964 and produced an interesting series of production-engine hybrids, most notably the Strada, powered by Chevrolet, and the Europa, powered by Opel. He also created some prototype cars, including the AMX/3 for American Motors, which was cancelled but then introduced (unsuccessfully) as the Bizzarrini Sciabola. This book is chock full of delightful trivia, and it's obvious that the authors put a lot of energy into developing the manuscript. They provide a comprehensive listing of all Bizzarrini's projects, an annotated list of Bizzarrini serial numbers and complete race results for Bizzarrini cars. If you have a Bizzarrini question, it's probably answered in this book. For that reason alone, this is a musthave book for Bizzarrini owners. Why not a five-star rating then? Because the authors' enthusiasm has produced a flawed perspective of Bizzarrini's significance, as the subtitle of the book foretells. Certainly, Ferrari himself would have been enraged by the claim that Bizzarrini was "the genius behind Ferrari." Overstatements abound in the book: the 1960 Ferrari 250 listed under "Bizzarrini Chassis Numbers" was, according to the text "a old Boano that Enzo give to him as a daily driver (sic)." The authors also claim that Bizzarrini contributed to the development of the Giulietta chassis, but Satta does not consider him a contributor (Borgeson, The Alfa Romeo Tradition, p. 142). Such propaganda undercuts the credibility of the book, and even rabid Bizzarrini fans should take the book's assertions with a grain of salt. I presented these objections to the book's authors, but they denied any bias in the work and stood by its accuracy. This seems to be a work in progress, more nearly approaching a periodical than a finished book. One of the most curious omissions is April, 2002  that no price for the book is given. The authors invite comments from their readers, and supply a Web address (www.classicscars.com) where additions and corrections to the book can be posted. Thanks, but solid scholarship up front would be a better approach. The authors are not intentionally devious in their misrepresentations: this book is clearly a paean to a designer from a trio of real car enthusiasts. Bizzarrini was a perpetual bridesmaid; more than a hanger-on, but less than an under-appreciated genius. Trying to aggrandize him unreasonably only tarnishes his several real accomplishments.—Pat Braden Author:  Rating:  Size:  Fax:  Price:  Publisher: MBI Publishing Phone:  651/287-5001 81/4 x 91/2 inches. Paperback, 96 pages $14.95 Veteran Porsche fanatics ** Parents lookingfor gifts for their 14-year-old son ***** There have been more than 50 books written about the Porsche 911, each with a different focus depending upon the author and the intended audience. Porsche 911 from the Enthusiast Color Series appears to be more oriented towards the picture book gang than the fact-seeking fanatics. As a picture book, Porsche 911 succeeds admirably; as a source of reference for the 911 enthusiast, Patemie's Porsche 911 Patrick Paternie 651/287-5000 efforts have resulted in a mixed bag. This book is full of high-quality color photographs as well as some historic black-andwhite shots of Butzi Porsche and 911 prototypes. There are also some interesting glimpses into Porsche's past through a few archived ads. Each chapter discusses a particular decade of the 911's development, along with a dedicated chapter for the Turbo. The main text of the book, following a chronological order, snakes its way past lengthy captions and independent but related articles, in almost a magazine-like style. For me, the most useful section of the book explains the "not as random as I had once thought it was" rationale behind Porsche's model nomenclature, which is entitled "The Numbers Game." Patemie reveals his preference for the purity of the 911's initial design, reluctantly conceding the windfall of technological improvements over the past decades. This is especially evident in his summations within the chapter "The 1990s: Evolution or Revolution." There is a modestly sized appendix of specifications and performance numbers and a scant index, reinforcing the claim that this is a great picture book, rather than a source of technical information. While not a good first choice as a foundation of a Porsche library, the pictures and subject matter make this a book I would browse through with some frequency.— David Slama• Auction reports, Mini-Profiles and more!

BIKE BUYS 1975 Honda GL 1000 Gold Wing T he 1974 introduction of Honda's all-new, liquid-cooled touring model called the Gold Wing changed the bike world forever, and spawned a new market segment of super-sized touring bikes. More refined than a HarleyDavidson and less aggressive than a BMW sport tourer, this flagship model found its niche with older, more affluent American enthusiasts who welcomed a better interstate cruiser. The Gold Wing's 999-cc flatfour engine was smooth, refined and mounted low to give the 647-pound bike surprisingly good balance and decent handling. Its state of tune didn't require high revs to find the power band, but despite its docile demeanor, quarter-mile runs of under 13 seconds and nearly 105 mph were enough to give the 82-hp Heavy highway cruiser, built to last. 'Wing superbike status. Water cooling and a shaft-drive setup added to the refinement and durability. Gold Wings have few common flaws. Honda installed the integrated alternator-stator in a hardto-access place that required pulling out the engine, and the part doesn't usually last the bike's lifetime. The suspension is also weak. Two people alone can put the bike over its standard weight limit, be- fore considering the additional accessories that Gold Wings seem to attract. Aftermarket kits are available to add more capacity, comfort and stability. The five-gallon fuel tank (under the seat, while the "fake" tank houses electrics, storage and a tool kit) is small. The timing belts deserve regular attention; the interference engine will incur costly damage if the belt breaks. In general, Gold Wings are difficult to work on, but they rarely need major repairs. It's not unusual to see examples make it to 300,000 miles if properly maintained. A Gold Wing that "needs a little work" is usually no bargain. When looking at a vintage Gold Wing, proper maintenance records are a must, and have the bike checked out by a specialized Gold Wing mechanic. It's no surprise that Gold Wings are best enjoyed on the open road. Enthusiasts can cruise all day without encountering the rider fatigue that plagued other machines of the same era. Many touring clubs and organized events exist so that Gold Wing owners can ride with like souls. Early 'Wings aren't as corn- fort-focused as the later ones, but they are smooth, stable, and relatively easy to ride (though by no means a starter bike). At first, Honda resisted geegaws that the flourishing aftermarket provided, but after a few years they finally gave in with OEM fairings, side bags and other add-ons. The Gold Wing lives on today. And even though it has evolved into a luxurious, accessory-laden, long-distance luxury cruiser, it still evokes the allure of a non-punishing approach to the open road that was personified by the original '75 model.—Bengt Halvorson• Years produced  Colors  Transmission  Weight  Price new  Value today  1975-79 Number produced  Engine  Candy Red, Candy Blue 5,000 Cost of full service/tune  Engine #  999-cc, water-cooled inline four five-speed 647 lbs. $2,900 $3,500 $425 Perfect Goldwing owner:  Rating:  Fun to ride  Ease of maintenance  Appreciation potential  Stamped on top right side of crankcase Empty nester, bike enthusiast, road-food restaurant reviewer is best 1931 Cadillac V12 Series 370A Dual Cowl Phaeton Silver gray wilt. green wings and brown leather int.

Legal Files S Is Your Mechanic Insured? by Alexander Leventhal ervice and repair shops are not perfect, and sometimes make mistakes or have lapses in judgment that can damage a customer's vehicle. These errors can be as simple as a small scratch provided by the high-school dropout performing the "complimentary" car wash. They can also be as catastrophic as a trashed motor on your Daytona when a hapless mechanic puts a screwdriver into the bore via the spark plug hole to fmd TDC, and then turns the motor with the starter because cranking it by hand is too hard. Recently, I learned of two separate incidents in which cars were seriously damaged by mechanics, with very different outcomes. The first involved a Porsche 944 Turbo S, in the Ecurie Mary Kay colors of metallic pink burgundy complemented by a burgundy plaid interior. During the course of a routine engine rebuild, the mechanic dropped a bolt. He assumed it had fallen through to the garage floor and, finding a new bolt, proceeded with the engine reassembly. When the owner of the shop took the car on its first test drive after the full engine rebuild, he noticed that the car felt down on power, and that no boost was being registered on the turbo's gauge. A teardown revealed that the turbo's impeller was shredded, and that the culprit, a stray intake manifold bolt, was still sitting in the housing. This was bad news for the shop's owner, as he had to cough up $500 for a new turbo, plus the time to R&R it. He also had to hire a new mechanic. All things considered, though, the outcome for the owner of this pink Porsche was not a bad one: his car was tied up in the shop for an extra week or two, but other than that he was not damaged in any way. The same cannot be said for the owner of the Ferrari we will discuss next. I became aware of the plight of the buyer of this Ferrari 512 TR through the Internet mailing list www.ferrarilist.com . It seems that a gentleman bought a very nice, low-mileage red/tan 512 TR for well south of $100,000. He had an independent Ferrari shop perform a major service on it (timing belts, etc.) before it was shipped to his home. On his first drive, he heard some terrible noises emanating from Needless to say, the TR owner did not want to ship his vehicle back out of state to the mechanic who butchered it the first time, so he commissioned a dealer to do the work, and asked the independent shop, whose mechanic's error destroyed the engine, to pay for it. The independent shop refused, made it clear that they did not have any insurance coverage for such damages, and when pressed by the TR owner's legal counsel, declared bankruptcy rather than pay for the repairs. This was a very bad outcome for the TR owner, as the likelihood of his ever recovering his roughly $30k in damages is somewhere between slim and none. Be sure your shop has "oops" coverage. the engine compartment, like someone putting a coffee can full of bolts onto a paint mixing machine. A cursory inspection revealed that one of the cams was not turning, with the resultant unwanted valve-topiston interface that modern Ferrari owners fear so much. The repair estimate from his local Ferrari dealer was in the $30,000 range. cra-tsicshowcase co What is the moral of this story? Before you entrust a valuable vehicle to your mechanic, make sure he or she has an "errors and omissions" policy in place that will indemnify you should your vehicle be damaged due to the mechanic's negligence. If the mechanic has this type of an insurance policy, he will not be driven into bankruptcy if an error is made on your Ferrari or Bugatti, and you will not be left to bear the repair costs out of your own pocket, like the hapless TR owner was. If the mechanic does not have such a policy in force (and it is surprising how many don't), either seek another shop, or at least make sure that the shop in question is not likely to run from the debt that could be created from the worst-case scenario. For example, it is unlikely that an authorized Ferrari dealer that has been in business for decades would close up shop to avoid paying $30k for a TR motor, or for that matter, the $500 turbo impeller. A one-man independent shop, on the other hand, might indeed be able to make good on the impeller, but could run from the TR motor, as described above.

They should then ensure that the shops that employ these mechanics either have insurance policies that cover their errors and omissions, or are at least sufficiently capitalized and stable to "self insure" themselves against such damages and pay off on such claims. In that way, should an accident happen, at the most it will be inconvenient rather than emotionally and financially destructive.

elAiatch s by Carl Bomstead friend of mine found a rare Pathfinder Scout motor oil quart can on eBay that dated from the '30s and was pleased to acquire it with a winning bid of $688.98; he had been prepared to pay much more. A few days after the transaction concluded, the seller sent an e-mail explaining how he had come to acquire the oil can. It seems he had a buddy who was using it to store nails. When the last of the nails was used, the can was tossed in the trash. The seller had rescued it, thinking he might get $5 or $10 on eBay to split with his friend. Obviously, at this point everyone was a happy camper. A few days later the buyer received another e-mail stating that Mr. Nail Storage had found another can and wanted to know if the dumb SOB who bought the first one wanted another for the same price. My friend wrote back and stated, "This dumb SOB sure does!" He sold the extra can for $1,500 so at the end of the day, all the dumb SOBs involved ended up smiling. Three highly desired automotive posters were offered on eBay last month and failed to sell. A Mercedes-Benz 300SL poster that celebrated their 1952 victory at Berne required an opening bid of $950, but no one got the ball rolling. A large Porsche factory poster that featured a 356 had a "Buy it Now" price of $900 but could only reach $290.57 after 14 bids. A striking 1910 stone lithograph poster for Peugeot Cycles, featuring an airplane and a government official on a Peugeot bicycle, received 11 bids, but $1,425 was not enough for the seller to let it go. Considering highquality posters of that era with desirable graphics that are similar to this one have sold in the $3,000 to $4,000 range, I wouldn't have sold it either. A Conoco Motor Oil porcelain flange sign (they display perpendicular to the wall) was offered on eBay and made it to $9,250 with 25 bids, which was not quite enough in the seller's opinion. The very desirable sign had a little edge wear but the important image area, which displayed a Colonial Minuteman in full uniform, was pristine. The sign had been previously offered at another venue for $10,000 so the high bid was very close. My sources tell me that the evil practice of curbstoning has reached the Internet. On 74  high-end pieces it is becoming much more common for sellers to set high reserves and, if they are not met, to then contact the high bidder directly and make a private deal. This cheats eBay, Yahoo and the like out of their well-earned and extremely modest commissions. Real estate agents get a commission for their services when a deal gets done; auction companies, whether on land or electronic, deserve their small piece of the action as well if a piece changes hands. EBay #1063887939 - Rain Ihe ball Game seat check Ihr Motorist who 1911 WEED CHAIN POSTER. First bid: $1.00. Number of bids: 12. SOLD AT: $200.00. Date sold: 1/22/2002. This early poster has remarkable graphics portraying touring cars, a rained-out baseball game, and the improbable task of selling chains for all four tires for use in the rain. Unfortunately the poster has been glued to a piece - WEED CiJ on all Four of paneling and cut down, but for the money, it was still a well-bought piece of automotive history. EBay Motors #5987212228 - 1957 JAGUAR XK 140. First bid: $20,000. Number of bids: 31. SOLD AT: $48,300. Date sold: 12/09/2001. Sold by a well-known Omaha collector/dealer, this Jag was stated to be a Meadow Brook Concours award winner. Assuming no surprises, this was a wise purchase. While the price was at the high end of the scale, the new owner ended up with a desirable, high-point sports car sans the agony and expense of the restoration process. Unless you are a masochist or dealing with an extremely rare car, you generally come out ahead paying a little more and getting a done car, rather than buying a cheap piggy and throwing wads of $100 bills at it. EBay Motors #601018206-1955 CHRYSLER PRESTIGE STYLING BROCHURE. First bid: $45. Number of bids: 2. SOLD AT: $47. Date sold: 2/02/2002. I had to buy this for trading stock since a buddy of mine owns the Virgil Exner-designed Chrysler d' Elegance that is prominently featured in this brochure. He has some stuff I "need" so we'll see what happens. EBay #1062359522—PAIR OF AVIATION GASOLINE GLOBE LENSES. First bid: $200. Number of bids: 29. SOLD AT: $8,437. Date sold: 1/22/2002. To someone not into gas globes, this may seem like a bunch of money for a couple of pieces of glass, but the buyer did just fine. Anything with an early air- plane is very desirable to gas and oil collectors and, if so inclined, one lens can be sold for well over 1 V2 times what was paid here. EBay #1064910266-1920 ELEPHANT IN EGG AUTOMOTIVE MASCOT. First bid: $900. Number of bids: 5. SOLD AT: $3,900. Date sold: 1/27/2002. These were sold exclusively through a Paris Bugatti dealer, Robert Benoist, in the '20s and were titled Oeufd'Elephant. This is the larger of the two versions and was an extraordinary purchase considering another example sold at the Bonhams & Brooks Hershey 2000 sale for $8,625. With such a wide disparity in sales results, how is the real value determined? The best guess would put the price somewhere in the middle. EBay #1067140692-1952 PEBBLE BEACH ROAD RACE PROGRAM. First bid: $9.95. Number of bids: 13. SOLD AT: $510.09. Date sold: 1/23/2002. There are things in life and automobilia that can't be explained and this falls into that category. Why this program sold for 21/2 times the going rate is beyond explanation. They appear with enough frequency to not be considered rare. Obviously, someone had to have it now, was willing to pay whatever it took and was nudged along by the under bidder.• Sports Car Market ‘

This method can help sell real estate inventory that has been sitting for an extended period. This could also help sellers who have large capital gains concerns. With a large downpayment in "trade" their taxable gain could diminish significantly. Even if the seller doesn't want an exotic car or an expensive piece of furniture, these items can certainly be sold via consignment or outright sale. Normal commission protocol gladly honored.

ar] Gig by Bengt Halvorson Vintage Oil Mug OUDOO Jaguar XK Gear-Reduction Starter If the cranky old Lucas starter in your XI( series Jaguar is unreliable, or if rebuilds just don't seem to last, this modern gearreduction starter might be the answer to surer starts. The unit is smaller in size than the original, allowing easier installation, and it provides more torque with less power drain than the original starter, also at a lower price than an OE replacement. Fits manual-shift models only. Price: $239.95. XKs Unlimited, 800/4445247, www.xks.com. Stahlwille Torque Wrench Don't use a cheap, inconsistent torque wrench when replacing your expensive, hard-to-obtain parts. Unlike most other designs, this highly accurate torque wrench, specified by Porsche as a factory tool, has no internal spring and will not lose calibration over time. It accepts many different insert tools rather eel than just the ratchet, and is reversible for left-hand tightening. Torque range 5 to 35 ft-lbs. (6 to 50 Nm). Price: $275. Baum Tools, 800/848 6657, www.baumtools.com. - Porsche Factory Posters Liven up your office, shop, or home garage and show your motorsports allegiance with some of these Porsche Factory Posters. More than a dozen colorful posters commemorate Porsche victories in top international races, like the Ntirburgring, Le Mans, and many others.

Tweeks, 888/489 - 3357, www.madirect.com. Here's the perfect companion for the garage: a mug modeled after a vintage oil can. These big-grip 30-ounce ceramic mugs feature colorful graphics similar to those on the real vintage oil cans that have proven to be a hot commodity on eBay Motors. They're available in four different styles (Powerlube, Polly Penn, Mobiloil, and New Texaco). Price: $19.95 each. Griot's Garage, 800 www.griotsgarage.com . - - Tire Pressure Indicators Take away the fuss of checking your tire pressure with these inexpensive color-coded tire-pressure indicator caps. Green means that the tire is still at the proper pressure, while yellow indicates that it's slightly low and red screams that it's dangerously low. Just replace your normal tire caps with these, and then it's simply a matter of looking at the tire caps. Price: $14.95 for a set of four. A.J. Prindle, 866/774 www.ajprindle.com . - 8278, Un-Du Sticker and Decal Remover Heard lots of conflicting advice about how to cleanly remove those old stickers, and worried about ruining your finish? Just squeeze out some Un-Du fluid at one edge of the sticker, ii then pry off the sticker with the spatula-like tool provided while applying more fluid to the exposed portion of adhesive. Un-Du is safe for all finished automotive surfaces, plastics, chrome and glass, and the product is also effective in removing tar and tree sap. Price: $17.95 for two four-ounce bottles.

The unit is pressure tested to 200 psi, and fits most light truck and RV applications. A smaller model is also available for compact vehicles. Price: $284.
