Shifting Gears / Keith Martin Quality Seat Time W e hadn't gotten more than 20 miles from our Portland, Oregon, home. Trapped by rush-hour traffic, the big Healey's temperature started to climb. The needle on the gauge quickly passed the 212-degree mark, and visions of warped heads and steaming radiators danced in my head. "Just drive on the shoulder, around the traffic," offered my copilot, Doug Hartman, who was looking forward to his first road trip in an English convertible. "What's worse—a ticket or a toasted engine?" We pulled to the side of the road, and for the next few miles cruised at 20 mph past stationary cars and SUVs. With the increased airflow, the temperature dropped and the engine bay no longer threatened to become a mobile geyser. Our goal was the less-than-teeming metropolis of Creswell (population 3,579), where we were to join another 30 Healeys as part of an SCM-sponsored caravan to Open Roads 2002, the celebration of the 50th anniversary of Austin-Healey, held at Stateline on the south shore of Lake Tahoe. Our ride was the newest addition to the SCM stable, an accidental purchase in the form of a red, with cream interior, 1963 Healey 3000 Mk II BJ7. A 20-year-old hobbyist restoration that had mellowed nicely, it had the appealing BJ7 combination of a Spartan dashboard and roll-up windows. This summer, we've made a commitment to have some quality seat time. So with a broad-tipped felt pen, we reserved space on the calendar for rallies and road trips. In May I joined SCM's European correspondent Joe Tomasetti to compete in the Modena Cento Ore Classic, a 100-hour event in northern Italy that incorporates hillclimbs and circuit racing. We'll have a full report in an upcoming issue, but suffice to say that having two pistons break in Tomasetti's Alfa GTA, leading to an overnight engine swap, provided some unscheduled excitement. In late May Ms. Banzer and I took our celery green, with peanut-butter interior, 1984 Ferrari Mondial Cabriolet on the Oregon Region Porsche Club's annual Half a Mille Miglia, a 500-mile run that passed through the picturesque vineyards surrounding Walla Walla, Washington. The most intense competition on this event came from seeing who could produce the most highly coveted bottle of cult wine each evening. Our box of Franzia Chillable Red didn't make much of an impression. A quick stop led to the following discovery: frayed wires to the dashboard overdrive switch. Luckily, a truck stop had a toggle switch that fit perfectly, for $4.95. (Imagine. You can't even put air in your Ferrari's tires for less than $5.) A pair of $2.95 fingernail clippers was pressed into service as a wire-stripper. After a ten-minute stop, we were back on the road. Half an hour later, the overdrive problem reappeared. We hadn't even gone the 90 miles to Creswell, and already it seemed we might have to abort. But this is a sports car story with a prince, and a happy ending. At the Healey party that evening, long-time SCM subscriber and good friend Bob Macherione examined the BJ7. Moving the shifter from left to right, he heard the overdrive solenoid click. His diagnosis: "You've got a bad overdrive switch on the tranny." It was now 10 p.m. "Do you tz, want to sleep tonight, or do you want to go to my shop in Eugene and help me put in a new one?" The next morning, the sight of 30 big Healeys, and one handsome Jensen-Healey, lined up for the 7 a.m. start was magnificent. Healey exhausts have a particular rasp that gives them a throaty sound unlike any other car, and to hear 30 of them idling in unison was a sports car symphony. Half an hour later, our Healey was in his service facility, The Sports Car Shop, and the center tunnel removed. The car appeared to cringe when it saw Macherione approaching, voltmeter in hand, as if the Spirit of Lucas that dwells within all English cars was terrified by this instrument of exorcism. The switch on the transmission, which keeps the car from engaging overdrive when in reverse, was indeed defective. Miracle of miracles, Macherione produced a new one from his parts inventory. Enjoying the magic of a functioning overdrive, we were soon back at our Creswell motel. The next few hours, as we traveled along Highway 97 en route to a rendezvous with another 20 Healeys coming from Washington, were glorious. Hartman and I were properly bundled up for top-down cruising at 60 mph in the brisk, earlymorning weather. With still-snow-clad mountain peaks as a backdrop, we talked about the things boys who have become 50-year-old men talk about. We solved most of the world's problems, mused about mortality, The 30-car group left the Whitman Hotel in Walla Walla at 9 a.m. Ms. Banzer and I lollygagged around, finally getting on the road an hour later. Being last, and far behind, provided an excuse to exercise the Mondial. The gently undulating roads offered no drama at 100 mph; at 110 mph, with the top down and the sunlight streaming in, Ms. Banzer remarked, "The wind is ruffling the pages of the Sunday New York Times, making it hard for me to read." Sparing her this hardship, back to 100 it was. The car behaved flawlessly (only one blown electrical circuit, which, for a Mondial, is hardly The Tomasetti/Martm GTA in the Cento Ore. worth mentioning) and we confess that, near the end, we put the top up and turned on the air conditioning, to cruise the last 75 miles in relative comfort. The caravan to the June Healey convention was our next adventure. With the temperature under control, the Healey decided to misbehave in another way. The overdrive began to engage and disengage at will, oblivious to our futile attempts to provide input. 6  s, and decided that we were having the best of all possible times as we motored on. at our Lake Tahoe destination, joining 1,200 other Healey enthusiasts and the 600 Healeys they brought to this half-century birthday celebration. With overdrive working flawlessly, we arrived On the Cover As 2003 is the 50th anniversary of Corvette, it seemed fitting to adorn our August cover with "Corvettes By the Sea," by Mark Davidson.

We have solved our "too little space for the whole Guide" problem by parsing it out over at least two issues. In this month, you'll find updated Ferrari, Etceterini, Alfa and Corvette prices. Next month, expect more.—ED. Dear SCM: One minor correction to your report on Lot #65, the 1965 Alvis TE-21 (S/N 27233), from the RM Amelia Island auction (June, page 30). The report indicates the body is by Graber. Actually, it's a Mulliner Park Ward body, (body number 9169). The first bodies of this type, on the TD21, were designed by Hermann Graber, but built by Park Ward, later Mulliner Park Ward. There were a number of one-off bodies on Alvis chassis built by Graber. Chassis 27233 isn't one of them. Incidentally, I keep a register of all Alvis cars. Yours for longer bonnets.—Wayne Brooks, via e-mail Dear SCM: Having been a sub- scriber for several years, I love reading articles about the enjoyment, fun and satisfaction your subscribers have had with their passion for cars and all that it entails. I'm not a gear head (everything is relative, right?), I simply have enjoyed cars since my youth and tend to be mechanically inclined. Starting a family over a decade ago put a new twist on time requirements and what was important in life. After children became a part of my life, I had a decision to make as to what to do once they were in bed. Watch bad TV or tinker with something in the garage. I found a very tired but original '74 MGB with 57,000 miles, wire wheels, overdrive and California heritage (no rust). I have been entertained with the labor-of-love August, 2002  stories, the "what was I thinking?" tales and the sage advice of Mr. Martin to buy from the dope who spent all the money and time building a beautiful car. Of course, I made the financially ridiculous decision to completely restore this car and went from a stripped shell to a nut-andbolt restoration over a seven year period. Remember, I have two kids, coach soccer and baseball, entertain, and thoroughly enjoy my family first. Last month, after prodding from family and friends, I entered the MGB in the All British Field Meet in my hometown of Vancouver, British Columbia. Needless to say, this was a humbling experience with over 500 cars entered and all cars judged and voted on by the entrants themselves. A quick call to my wife during the event was made to let her know there was more than one neat freak with an urge to restore a car out there. The day was fun and, while some entrants were maybe a little too in love with their piece of metal, it was a fabulous day. In the afternoon I went to the award presentations to see who would be rewarded for their efforts, quietly hoping for any form of recognition. To my surprise I was given first in class to a round of applause from several hundred people. To put this sense of accomplishment in perspective is difficult. Over the years I have been blessed with a great wife, two wonderful children and have been successful in team sports, adventure racing and won my fair share of athletic events. To be acknowledged by my peers gave me the same heart-pounding excitement. Was all the effort worth a $5 plaque? Absolutely.—Tracie McTavish, Vancouver, BC, Canada Dear SCM: On page 98 of the February 2002 issue, you called the 1983 Zimmer Golden Spirits "monuments to bad taste." This is an insult to people like me who have purchased these cars. We think they look good. They aren't just cars for Mary Kay wives. You shouldn't be so arrogant when you probably can't afford one anyway.—Ron List, Grove City, OH Thisjust goes to prove that beauty is indeed in the eye of the beholder But we wonder—just what are cars for Mary Kay wives? Clenet Series III Cabriolets, perhaps?—ED Dear SCM: Sports Car Market is a refreshing change from the usual mix of car mags, which continually offer less-than-inspiring reviews of the latest techno marvels from Japan/Germany as well as an overemphasis on SUVs. Maybe I've become bored with cars that are too perfect, too insulated, too lifeless. New cars take me where I need to go—classic cars take me where I want to be! A distinctive difference. I also enjoyed your work, Keith, on Martin Swig's "Backroad Adventures" shows last year. Too bad the funding went away. Is there any hope that this show will be back on? It was without a doubt the classiest auto-related show ever aired— at least I taped every episode!— Mark D. Bell, New Berlin, WI Alas, Swig is having great difficulty getting car companies, the logical sponsors of his series, to understand that cost-effective advertising directed to a highly concentrated group of likely buyers is something that they should consider It appears they've retreated to their past positions of sponsoring golf tournaments and horse shows. Strange, eh?—ED.

Ask The X-perts Don't Store That Corvette, DrivP It D ear X-perts: What 's your opinion of the 50th Anniversary Corvette as an investment? I'm considering a convertible and am told they may only build about 5,000. Is it fair to assume that these cars will be worth more in the near future, or further along down the road?—S.P., via e-mail Dave Kinney replies: Nearly every big auction I attend has a recent Corvette with no (or 10, or 150) miles in the line-up. Invariably, it is like new, garaged all its life, often a special edition (Collector, Pace Car, etc.), sometimes with all the plastic still on the seats, and often still on a manufacturer's statement of origin. Lots of potential bidders take a look, the consignor declares that it is "here to sell," and almost every time, the fmal bid falls far short of the original selling price. Sometimes the Corvette changes owners; most often it does not. The seller, unless he was able to buy the car new at somewhere around a 30% discount, generally takes a hit. In the best of cases, he gets his money back in less valuable 2002 dollars, and has spent many dollars storing, insuring and possibly maintaining the car. Serial-production cars are just that. They come off the line as if punched out by cookie cutters, one after the other, in huge numbers relative to the collector car field. After all, they only built 1,273 Ferrari Daytona coupes, and collectors view them as common. Contrast that with the 15,283 1978 Silver Anniversary 'Vettes, or the 6,759 1982 Collector Edition. Plus, from the buying side, why would you want a brandnew, in-the-wrapper 1998 (or 1997, or 1985) Corvette when, for just a few dollars more, you can have a brand-new, in-thewrapper 2002? The 2002 comes with a warranty. It can be financed at a bank or even by GMAC at favorable new-car rates. All the seals and rubber bits that dry out over time are fresh and new. The warranty book (okay, computer records) will forever list your name as the first owner. "Original owner" can legally be part of your sales pitch when you go to sell. All that being said, there are two really good reasons to buy the 50th Anniversary Edition 2003 Corvette. The first reason is to buy one early and cheap (at list or a little more) and sell it (very quickly) to someone who is under the misguided opinion that it will be worth more forever. The second reason to is to enjoy it. Drive it, take it to shows if you want, or let the miles Another year, another special edition. pour on. Will you lose money if you sell it in the first 20 years? Sure. But, if everything goes well, you will have had a really good time in the process, which is actually what you are paying for with the diminution in value of the car. And being behind the wheel is really the best part of what Corvette ownership is about. Send your collector car questions to the Xperts. E-mail: copyed@sportscarmarket.corn; snailmail: PO.

Collecting / Bill Neill F The Six Corvettes You Should Own ifty years ago, the first Corvettes rolled off the assembly line. Underpowered, undersuspended and unloved in the marketplace, they appeared to be on a fast track to oblivion. But the General persevered, and the end result has been the most popular, longestlived and best-selling sports car of all time. SCMwent to a local Corvette fanatic, Larry Berentsen, and asked him to pick his six all-time favorites. As you might expect from someone who has owned, out of a total of 26 Corvettes, 211965-67 convertibles, his list is weighted heavily towards the tire-shredding big blocks of the '60s. Berentsen feels it is the unique combination of style and sheer horsepower that has made Corvettes so popular over the years, and has kept their values strong. 1953 Roadster most desirable engine is the fuel-injected 327, still rated at 360 horsepower. Knock-off aluminum wheels are sought after, although experts don't agree on whether or not they were actually a factory option in 1963. Price: $40,000 to $55,000. 1965 396 Convertible For the first time, Chevrolet stuffed a bigblock into the engine bay in 1965. The 396 was available in the Corvette during this year only, with the 427 replacing it in 1966. Prices for 396- and 427equipped cars are about the same, with the 396 being rarer, and the 427 offering more power. This is the first year for Corvette's four-wheel disc brakes. Price: $55,000 to $80,000. 1967 427 Convertible Eisenhower was president, and 300 1953 Corvettes made it to the showroom floor. All had six-cylinder engines mated to Powerglide automatic transmissions. All were Polo White with red interiors and black soft tops. Although less than thrilling to drive, they are rare and still popular, especially among older collectors for whom they bring back fond memories. The 1953s are rarely driven; they seem to perform best when sitting still, freshly waxed, basking in nostalgia. (That's about the way their owners seem to perform best as well.) Low serial numbers may add value—or at least some sellers think they do. Price: $80,000 to $125,000. 1962 Fuel-Injected Convertible This is the first year for the 327 engine, and the last year of the C 1 body style. The 360-hp fuelie motor was a real tire-smoker, especially when coupled to the manual four-speed. All '62s are open cars with a solid rear axle. Heaters became standard equipment in '62, and this is the last year of the power top. Price: $40,000 to $60,000. 1963 Fuel-Injected Coupe The only year that the Corvette's rear window was divided into two pieces, resulting in the "split-window" 'Vette. No four-wheel disc brakes or big blocks were available yet, but collectors just love the lines. The 18 The most valuable engine version is the 427-c.i./435horsepower option. Not surprisingly, the convertible is worth more than the coupe. The 36-gallon fuel tank (regular production option NO3) is a popular option for coupes, but not available on convert- ibles. Shoulder belts (A85) are desired by buyers, which is probably a good idea for a car with over 400 horsepower and little in the way of passenger safety features. Air conditioning is a real plus, but could not be combined with the 435-horsepower engine. Bolt-on cast aluminum wheels are a nice addition. The audible speed warning is actually considered desirable, and so is tinted glass. Price: $60,000 to $90,000. 1969 427 Convertible The second year of the C3 body style was 1969, by which time Chevrolet had fixed some of the teething problems that plagued the 1968, including reinforcing the area around the hood hinges to prevent cracks in the body. There were several 427 engines to choose from, of which the 435horsepower version is the most powerful. A really rare bird is the L-88 engine with its aluminum cylinder heads. Prices for '69 models are moving upward. An average coupe sells in the high teens, but a good '69 427 convertible is $40,000. A year ago it would have been hard to get $32,000 for the same car. Price: $28,000 to $45,000. Larry Berentsen has been a sales consultant at the Chevy Store in Portland for over a decade. He may be contacted at 503/256-0098.• Sports Car Market

Ferrari Profile 1989 328 GIS Chassis number: ZFFXA20AXKO081058 errari ' s line ofhighly successful V8-engined road cars began when the 308 GT4 of 1973 took over from the preceding 246 Dino V6. The newcomer's wedged-shaped styling, by Bertone, was not universally well received, but the performance of the 3-liter V8 certainly was. A new two-seater car using the same power unit, the 308 GTB, debuted at the Paris Salon in 1975. Built on a shorter wheelbase, the stunningly beautiful GTB marked a welcome return to Pininfarina styling. The 308 was superseded by the mechanically similar but larger-engined 328 in 1986. By increasing both bore and stroke, the engine's capacity was raised to 3186 cc, which, together with a higher compression ratio, lifted maximum power to 270 horsepower at 7,000 rpm. F Top speed was raised to 160 miles per hour with 0 to 60 mph covered in 5.5 seconds. The elegant simplicity of Pininfarina's original 308 had been updated by the addition of molded bumpers and an unobtrusive roof spoiler. Motor magazine observed: "In our book, this is still the most beautiful of all contemporary exotics—a gorgeous looking car." Possibly the lowest mileage 328 in the world, and one of the last built, the exceptional "time warp" example shown here has covered a mere 87 miles from new. Finished in Rosso Corsa with beige leather, the car comes with the original certificate of origin. FAF Motorcars, Inc., of Tucker, Georgia, supplied the car new to the current owner and it has never been registered. Both factory tool kits are in place and the unused owners' manuals are in their wallet. The overall appearance is as if the car were delivered just days ago. The 87 miles covered over the past 13 years have only been accumulated through routine start ups, done to avoid any ill effects from prolonged inactivity. Years produced  Number produced  Original list price  SCM Price Guide  Tune-up/major service Distributor cap  Chassis number  This car sold for $59,455, including buyer 's premium, at the Bonhams Geneva sale, held March 11, 2002. I was sales manager at FAF Motorcars in 1989, a wild time to be in the Ferrari business. Virtually any Ferrari was hot property and the 328 was no exception. There was a waiting list for new cars and people were buying used 328s for more than the list price of a new one. Many Ferrari dealerships were selling new cars at MSRP knowing that buyers were immediately reselling for a profit. To help combat this rampant speculation, FAF didn 't generally sell cars to people we didn't know well, and we tried to avoid selling any cars for export. However, a check of old records revealed that this car had been sold, by regular SCM contributor and FAF co-owner, John Apen, to a Swiss national with a textile business who also had a home in the Carolinas, thus getting around our export concerns. We never saw the buyer again so he probably returned to Switzerland with the car, and left it in storage for years. In my opinion the 328 is the best built, most reliable Ferrari ever Period. It is the product of a dozen years of 308 experience.

It featured simple Bosch fuel injection, a go/no-go electronic ignition system and an engine you serviced without removing from the car. Most important, it was the last Ferrari that could be repaired by a good import shop. The following generation of V8 Ferraris evolved into temples to high-tech gadgetry. When something goes wrong with one of these technological marvels, you have to truck your car to an authorized Ferrari dealer—they're the only place that has the computer necessary to fix your car. 1986-89 1; 6,068 $84,780 $37,500-$45,000 $3,000 $387.09 (two required) On plate on top of steering column, in driver's door jamb and on top right frame rail next to engine in engine compartment Top of block on passenger side Ferrari Club of America, P.O.

Rubber seals become hard, shock absorbers seize, brake calipers start to stick and tires get flat spots. On the other hand, it only takes a minimum amount of attention to keep things from going bad. If this car was started and moved as little as once a year it may be fine. Assuming there were no storage-related surprises (and perhaps pigs can fly as well), this car was very well bought. 1989 was the last year for the 328s and they've become the darling of 308/ 328 collectors. Examples with less than 10,000 miles will sell for over $60,000. 328s with fewer miles can approach $70,000. A Ferrari dealer recently paid $63,000 for a 1,000-mile example and still had to pay shipping and a broker 's commission before he could bring it home. And he expects to be able to resell for a profit. Here, the new owner's biggest problem may be figuring out what to do with his new toy. Does he keep it as the lowest mile example in existence or drive it? If he chooses the latter course of action, common sense dictates a complete $3,000 service before heading out onto the highway. If he does that, and then demonstrates the car 's solid condition by driving it for a few hundred miles, he may actually increase its value. Furthermore, he could probably enjoy his time-warp car to the tune of 9,000 miles (three years at the standard collector car usage rate of 3,000 miles per year), and then sell the car for what he paid for it, or more.Steve Ahlgrim Comparables Poulain Le Fur; Paris, France; December 10, 2001 Sold at $50,000 SCM ID# 24438 (Historic data and photo courtesy of auction company)• 1989 Ferrari 328 GTS eBay/Kruse; Auburn, Indiana; August 30, 2001 Sold at $54,590 SCM ID# 22831 Lot #3775, S/N ZFFXA20A9K0078877 Condition: 2

Sheehan Speaks / Michael Sheehan I Michelotto, Ferrari's Tuner ust as AMG is the factory "tuner" for Mercedes, the Kremer Bros. have long been the factory race arm for Porsche, and Jack Roush Racing is the official racing arm for Ford's NASCAR series, Michelotto is the race shop for the Ferrari factory GT and sports prototype racing efforts. Michelotto began as an authorized Ferrari dealer in Padova, a small town only 50 miles up the road from Venice. In the late 1970s Michelotto started building and race-preparing lightweight 308s for Ferrari France and multiple Italian privateers. While fewer than 20 of these lightweight 308 rally cars were built, they were very successful and hugely popular with rally fans who were thrilled to see Ferraris in competition. In the early '80s, Michelotto was asked by Ferrari to do the development work for the 288 GTO, and ultimately to build a series of ultra-sophisticated 288 GTO race cars called the 288 GTO Evoluziones. Only six Evoluziones were constructed, and they ended up in the hands of some of the world's most famous collectors, including the Sultan of Brunei. In the late '80s Ferrari retained Michelotto to develop the replacement for the 288 GTO, the F40. Ten working prototypes were built and used for many thousands of miles of road testing, performance and suspension evaluations. After the introduction of the F40, Ferrari reentered GT racing and had Michelotto build a series of 19 ultra-highperformance F40 LMs for America's IMSA and Europe's GTC series. Michelotto also built an additional seven F40 GTs for the Italian Supercar Championship and another seven F40 LM GTEs for the BPR GT series. In 1993 Ferrari made the decision to re-enter sports prototype racing with the 333 SP, the first Ferrari sports racer in almost 20 years. After the first cars were built, the construction and race support were en- F40 LM sold for $398,163 at Poulain Le Fur's 2000 Monaco auction. trusted to Michelotto. The result was great success, with Ferrari winning at the 24 Hours of Daytona, the 12 Hours of Sebring and at almost every other racetrack in the IMSA, World SportsCar and European ISRS series. The 333 SP was not only a successful race winner but also very user friendly, with over 40 cars built, some as recently as 2001, for race teams and for private collectors. Michelotto's most recent racer is the 360 GT, built for the ALMS, the FIA GT series events and the traditional endurance events such as Daytona, Sebring and Le Mans. In 2001, its first year of racing, the 360 GT won the FIA GT class championship. We make leasing as simple as turning the key.

RON TONKIN GRAN TURISMO ,4mer7da's oldest .7(Trari 'Dealership FERRARI Michelotto 308, worth as much as eight stock 308s. While the prices of used race cars usually plummet, Michelotto-built cars—due to the number of venues in which they continue to be competitive—are still highly valued. For instance, while a stock 308 is a "how many do you want for $25,000" car, a Michelotto 308 will cost between $150,000 to $200,000, and that's twice what it was worth four years ago. In America, a stock, no-bad-stories F40 will set you back around $300,000, while you'll need at least $400,000 to slide behind the wheel of a Michelotto F40 LM, GT or GTE. 333 SPs are still strong at $650,000 to $750,000, and don't seem to be depreciating like a normal used race car should. In fact, the winner of the 1998 Daytona 24 Hours and the 12 Hours of Sebring, S/N 19, sold for $1,000,000 two years ago and would still be worth the same today. It can be safely said that if you are a collector of any modern Ferrari GT or sports prototype race car, you are a Michelotto collector.

English Car Profile 1963 Morgan +4 SS Roadster Chassis number: 5305 T he Morgan Plus 4 Super Sports model was introduced late in 1961, offering arguably the best price-for-performance value available at that time. Its lightweight aluminum body provided crisp handling in a design reminiscent of the great fully fendered sports cars of the 1930s. Between 1961 and 1968 only 104 Triumph TR4A-engined aluminum-bodied Super Sports were produced. Of the 95 two-seat cars built for sports car competition in the United States and abroad, 50 carried the low-bodied roadster coachwork of this example. The example shown here—"Baby Doll V"—is famous in Morgan circles. It was ordered from the factory in the spring of 1962 by Lew Spencer, a well-known southern California SCCA member and local Morgan dealer. This car was to be his ultimate Morgan race car; a sleek low-body successor to Baby Doll IV, the car with which he won the 1962 SCCA C-production National Championship. Fortunately for his racing competitors, by the time Baby Doll V arrived, Spencer had sold the Morgan dealership to go to work for Carroll Shelby. After that Spencer could only campaign Baby Doll V on occasional outings in nearby SCCA National events. He was successful in the few events he was able to attend. Following Spencer's ownership, the car was retired and in 1965 became the property of Susan Stephens Flynn, an artist and racing program illustrator. She eventually sold it to Richard Freshman in 1989. Freshman had Fossil Motorsports and the original Baby Doll IV and V Race Team mechanic Pierre Brun restore and prepare the car for historic competitions. The 45 DCOE 9 twin Weber carburetor-equipped TR4A blueprinted engine has a ported and polished cylinder head and cc'ed combustion chambers. It was totally rebuilt with the inclusion of a brand-new billet steel crankshaft, new bearings, seals, aluminum high-compression pistons, rings, Carrillo steel rods and stainless steel valves. After Years produced  Number produced  Original list price  SCM Price Guide  the rebuild, the car was run in with approximately 150 miles of track testing. Mr. Freshman raced the car very successfully, fmishing first and third in the only two vintage historic races contested, the Chicago Historics of July 1993 and the HMSA Wine Country Classics in June 1994. This example is finished in Lew Spencer's signature Kingfisher Blue paint scheme, with Super Sports bucket seats. The lightweight aluminum body appears to be in excellent shape. "Baby Doll V" is still painted on the side. The amazing Morgan Baby Dolls are accomplished "giant killers" in historic circles, where they have regularly beaten small-block Corvettes, Porsches, Abarths, and Jaguar E-types, despite their smaller displacement engines. This classic time-honored piece of Morgan racing heritage, with less than 350 race and test miles on it since its total restoration, is currently fully sorted, raceready, and able to reward its new owner with many competitive vintage race outings or exhilarating touring miles.

Originally produced and sold for racing purposes, the model's value won't be negatively affected by the modern modifications required to make one legal for vintage racing. The car 's provenance and racing history will contribute to its value, since that background is likely to affect its eligibility for the elite race events. With an unbroken history—its whereabouts and its condition continuously known by Morgan enthusiasts—Baby Doll V has a provenance of significant value. The fact that this car was developed for racing by two well-known specialists, Spencer and Freshman, may make it the best Morgan racer in the world. A buyer certainly should expect to pay more for this car than the $65,000 that the SCM Price Guide suggests is the value of an excellent but relatively anonymous example of the 104 Morgan +4 SS cars. 1961-68 104, 95 of which are A Add to that the emotional value a personal connection can invest in a car After the auction, Baby Doll V very quickly changed hands again. Its current custodian is a recognized Morgan specialist who literally grew up with this particular car, acquiring his love for the venerable breed by hanging around Lew Spencer 's shop in the early '60s, and even filming Baby Doll V in its maiden races. We can soon expect to see Baby Doll V once again on the front of the starting grid of West Coast sports car races, its pilot the same person who as a young man could only dream of driving this car on the race track.

The English Patient / Gary Anderson D DBS Astons and Ice Cream Cones ear Mr. Anderson: Couldyou comment on the Aston Martin DBS? In a recent book on the marque, Ever the Thoroughbred, the author suggests that the six-cylinder 1967-72 DBS is unjustifiably criticized as sluggish because its successor—the DBS V8—is perhaps overpowered. I bought my six-cylinder DBS because it was a reasonably priced entry point to the marque, and it has back seats for the kids. Aside from its potential appreciation in value, my main return on investment is the enjoyment I get when I drive on Sundays to get the proverbial ice cream cone. How do you rate the DBS against other Astons? Doyoufeel they are currently overlooked?—Joshua Mazer, via e-mail The DBS is certainly one of the least expensive ways of buying an Aston Martin. Unfortunately in the classic car marketplace, that simply means fewer people want it than other models. It isn't as if the car is currently undiscovered, like the work of an artist that hasn't yet been displayed in galleries. When David Brown introduced the DBS, one of the last models to be associated with his ownership of the company, it certainly departed in many ways from the lovely postwar cars that have become iconic of the marque. It was bigger, wider and heavier than previous Astons, and had few design cues to hint of its heritage. Unfortunately, the new V8 engine destined for this car was not yet available, so it was powered instead by the double overhead-cam straight-six engine shared with previous Astons. With its additional weight, it was slower off the mark and at top speed than the DB6 that preceded it, though it was no slouch. It could still manage 0 to 60 in 6.5 seconds and had a top speed of 140 miles per hour, which will allow you to hold your own with most performance cars of the present. As an owner, that engine is a good thing for you, as it is very reliable and easier to maintain than the V8 that replaced it. So there you are. You own a car that is a buyer's dream, since it offers you more than adequate performance to drive in today's traffic, and costs less than you'd have spent on any other Aston. Unfortunately, the car is a seller's nightmare, since in a down market it is more difficult to sell than any other Aston. In other words, like so many collector car bargains, the same things that made it affordable going in to the purchase will make it cheap when it comes time to sell. You can expect to get anywhere between $15,000 and $30,000, depending on condition, when you put it on the market. However, chances are your children don't care whether you have an S or a V8, and just think that riding in, and dripping a bit of ice cream onto the seats of, Daddy's cool British car is pretty neat. Plus, you'll soon be able to take them to the new James Bond movie and point out that, "007 is driving the same kind of car that we own." In my book, that all adds up to your having a car to keep and enjoy. Dear Mr. Anderson: lam considering restoring a 1952 Jowett Jupiter and am having trouble figuring out what these cars are worth. The one I'm looking at has spent its entire life in California, is completely intact but hasn 't run in 40 years. Even though it has been garaged and has no rust, it definitely needs a total restoration. My questions are: I) what is the typical range of prices for total restoration projects for Jupiters; 2) what is the typical range of value for restored Jupiter drivers; and 3) what is a concours gold Jupiter worth?— Scott Tisdale, via e-mail We went back to two recent British Car magazine issues for basic information on this interesting automobile.

"How do you restore an orphan car?" The answer to the first question also relates to the second. The Jupiter was built from 1950 to 1952 by the Jowett company, founded in 1904. Unlike the Morgan company, which brought in its engines from other companies, Jowett prided itself on its innovative engine design. Using technology developed in World War II, they produced a horizontally opposed four-cylinder engine made of aluminum castings but with cast-iron valve sleeves. The problem was that their engineering was too advanced for their production technology and the castings were quite crude. So the problem that dug them into their grave in the '50s will be your first problem to deal with. Unlike most sports car engines, which can be rebuilt by any reasonably competent machine shop, this one requires a specialist who is familiar with the engine. The only one we know of is Kip Motors in Dallas, Texas (972/243-0440, www.kip motor.com). Kip Lankenau, the proprietor, points out that the aluminum castings were poorly designed, with joints often at odd angles, making it difficult to maintain good seals between oil passages. In addition, Kip says, all tapped fastener holes need to be helicoiled so they can hold torque on the bolts. Rarity works against you, as well. Only 861 of the Jupiters were ever built, with fewer than half of them exported to the United States. By comparison, there were more than 200,000 Hillman Minxes sold in the United States, and they are considered rare cars. As you might expect, parts may not be available overnight from Moss Motors. That's the bad news. Fortunately, many of the basic parts were made by the standard manufacturers—Lucas, Girling, SU and so forth, and were used on a variety of British cars. All you have to know is which part from which manufacturer fits the Jupiter. The good news is that if you decide to restore this car, you won't be out in the wilderness all by yourself. Parts can be obtained, and expertise is available. Kip can even put you in touch with other Jupiter owners, though there isn't any formal club among the 80 to 100 other owners in the United States. Restoring an orphan can cost twice as much as buying one. What will it cost to restore the car and what will it be worth in the end? Kip always tells his customers to expect that any restoration of any classic car will cost about twice the value that the market places on a car. Since Kip tells us that a good driver Jowett Jupiter might sell for $20,000 to $25,000 and an excellent, carefully done restoration might be worth $35,000, you can get an idea of what a restoration might cost if you pay a reputable shop to do all the work—somewhere in the $40,000 to $70,000 range. Sobering numbers indeed. Assuming you do go ahead and see your way through the two years or so that a restoration might take, you can count on being the only Jowett Jupiter on the field at most British Car meets. If you just want a neat old car to drive, you'd be better off taking your checkbook to the next classic car auction, and you can be driving another marque almost immediately. For $20,000 there are any number of Morgans out there; for $50,000 and up you could have a near-perfect E-type or XK 120. But whether you decide to restore this Jupiter or just walk away, give Kip a call. He'll be glad to help out. Mr. Anderson is publisher of British Car magazine.

SCM Market Report ".521:19,521:1  The cycles of the economy are a given, and even have a sort of predictability. Stocks soar, stocks crash. Real estate takes off, real estate goes into the toilet. Art and jewelry are hot, art and jewelry go out of favor. I But the confluence of the financial scandals being played out at what should be the highest level of accountability, coupled with the new specter of global terrorism, is rewriting the rules on invesments of all kinds. In the past, even when the market was down, the companies whose shares were being traded had a base value. If they improved their profits, their stocks would rise. If they failed to do that, they would languish. But today, as Wall Street is rocked by daily revelations of outright deceit, no one is sure exactly what is going on. Imagine waking up to find out that your cherished Xerox or WorldCom or Global Crossing shares, in which your entire retirement funds were vested, have suddenly vaporized due to executive malfeasance? The question of terror compounds the issue. The rest of the world has been dealing with vicious attacks on innocent civilians for decades. America, newly targeted, is being whipsawed by "the threat of the day." Is it underwater saboteurs in our harbors? Suitcase bombs at the White House? Shipping containers with explosives inside? According to the daily papers, it's all of the above and more. And each threat causes the financial markets to shudder. We're not going to say that cars are "good" investments in this kind of climate, but we will say they are "safe." There will always be a buyer for a nicely done car at a reasonable price. And the condition of a car, unlike the financial condition of a large company, is something easily determined. So our counsel this August, especially for those attending auctions, is to give the stock market a rest for a few months. Put some assets into a money market fund, and take others and invest (dare we use that word?) some into properly and handsomely done cars. You'll enjoy driving them, and you may even make a little money when you go to sell.—ED. SCM 1-6 Scale Condition Rating 1: National concours standard/perfect. 2: Very good, dub 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.

In the 14 years SCM has been covering auctions, we've seen numerous companies dart in and out of the L.A./Newport market. Often, they come thinking that since L.A. is car crazy, all they will have to do is put up a tent, buy some advertisements in the local Auto Trader, and sit back and count their profits. I Not so. Enthusiasts in L.A. have many options when it comes to choosing where to spend their Friday nights and Saturday afternoons, so for a collector car auction to succeed it has to have both a decent environment and a tantalizing array of cars. Barrett-Jackson provided both. As its relationship with the Petersen Museum solidifies, you can almost feel the camaraderie between the Museum and auction company staff. At the auction, everyone was helpful; lines for bidder and consignor registration were short, and the cars were nicely displayed. Even more important, Craig Jackson's team got some very high-quality consignments, including a collection of top-line Ferraris. Those cars brought in the bidders, and the bidders spent freely. While Friday night got off to a slow start, by Saturday afternoon the auction arena was humming, as car after car was hammered sold for big money. The famous custom CheZoom sizzled at $183,600, the Lusso was a contemporary record-breaker at $209,520, and the Tucker took top honors of the day at $334,800. While overall sales were off slightly from last year ($3.2m compared to $3.4m), given the uncertain economic climate, this should be considered a successful auction. We know of several consignors who brought cars to this sale specifically because of its success last year; as the Barrett-Jackson sale becomes a fixture on the collector calendar, you can expect to see more buyers and sellers making the event a regular part of their circuit.—K. M. 32  Sporting the potent 100D2 Bristol engine. Very nice panel fit, decent chrome and interior. A lot of eyeball. No reserve. Cond: 2+. SOLD AT $68,000. ACs continue to be strong. They offer the rugged looks of the Cobra with a more manageable, but still peppy, engine. And they cost half as much. Fair price here. #105-1961 AUSTIN-HEALEY BUGEYE SPRITE Roadster. S/N 61AN5L41794. White/ red leather. LHD. Odo: 3,113 miles. Wire wheels, interior and whitewalls. Rusty spoke on left rear wheel. An older restoration that has since seen some use. Car could definitely use a good detailing. Cond: 3. SOLD AT $27,500. Well bought. Some time and a little money spent on appearance will bring the new owner a huge payback in value and visual enjoyment. A minor bargain here. #266-1958 AC ACE BRISTOL Roadster. S/N BEX468. Red/black. LHD. Odo: 233 miles. point restoration as the owner states. Cond: 2+ SOLD AT $87,480. This sale shows once again that buyers will step up for exceptional cars. As E-type prices increase, it starting to become possible for restorers to buy builders, restore them, then sell for a profit. Expect to see more restored cars in the future. #209-1986 JAGUAR XJS Coupe. S/N SAJNV5847GC1304. Steel blue/blue leather. LHD. Odo: 94,812 miles. Recent tuneup and transmission rebuild. New tires and air ENGLISH #322-1957 JAGUAR XK 140 MC Roadster. S/N 5815823. White/red leather. LHD. Odo: 17,598 miles. Miscellaneous paint chips. Dirty Barrett-Jackson, Los Angeles, CA conditioning. Cond: 3. SOLD AT $3,780. You don't have to get many miles out of this car for it to be a terrific deal. But when the first thing breaks, and the shop says it will be $1,500 to fix, will you have the courage to donate the car to a charity and walk away, or will you start spending? GERMAN #335-1959 PORSCHE 356A Convertible. S/N 152189. Silver/red. LHD. Odo: 31,907 miles. Idaho plate. Floor pan looks good. Underneath clean and undercoated. Shift-lever paint Simpson racing belts. "Bug Aye" license plate. Later disc brakes. Complete records. Straight enough in front, but lots o' Bondo in the rear. An older restoration that has been driven. Cond: 4-. SOLD AT $9,720. Prices on average and below Bugeyes have nearly doubled in the past two years. Given that a nastier car brought $18,150 at RM's Amelia sale in March 2002, this should be considered a good buy. But it still surprised me. #295-1966 JAGUAR XICE S14.2 Roadster. S/N 1E12354. Red/tan. LHD. Odo: 57,116 miles. Discolored rubber trim below gas filler. All chrome is as good as new. Orange peel below right bumper. Very well presented, but not a 100- chipped. Horn button cracked. Trim on left door loose. Overall, a nicely done restoration. Cond: 2. SOLD AT $38,610. Driven to the auction from Idaho by an SCM subscriber Less than half the price of the twin-grille roadster at this auction, but will provide much more than half as much fun. A reasonable way into the world of open 356s. #205-1960 PORSCHE 356B Coupe. SiN 108921. White/red vinyl and velour. LHD. Odo: 18,823 miles. Sunroof. Documented to be the first Super 90 made by Porsche. Originally a factory demonstrator assigned to Herr Kling. Sports Car Market

The more you look, the more you don't want to look. Cond: 4-. SOLD AT $16,740. A surprising price for this car with needs. Maybe L.A. is 356-crazy. #121-1965 MERCEDES-BENZ 230SL Convertible. S/N 11304210013094. Cream/brown vinyl. LHD. Odo: 53,309 kms. Mag wheels from Car looks as if Kling enjoyed using it. Cond: 3-. SOLD AT $10,800. A cheap enough price for a car with some interesting, although not particularly valuable, provenance. 356B coupes continue to be a very affordable way to experience an early Porsche. #227-1961 PORSCHE 550A BECK Spyder. S/N 116582. Silver/blue. LHD. Odo: 17,543 miles. Porsche Carrera engine, correct gauges. Good panel fit, paint. Supertrapp muffler. Oldstyle black-and-yellow California plate (expired September 1998). Nardi wood wheel taped. Minor chip on front of hood. A good-looking driver. No reserve. Cond: 2-. SOLD AT $25,920. A well-built Beck, and a cheap way to have a lot offun—but still a fake. #275-1962 PORSCHE SUPER 90 Convert- ible. S/N 89740. Black/black. LHD. Twin-grille roadster. Fully restored to a very high standard, a sedan. Dirty engine compartment. Chipped paint on door edges. License plate two years old, and the car looks like that was when it was last driven. Scratches on deck lid. Overall, appears to be a car that was neither abused nor pampered. Cond: 3-. SOLD AT $9,990. The stick shift is a plus in the 230SL, as the automatic—which wants to start in second gear— when combined with the 2.3-liter engine, doesn't provide much scoot in traffic. A nice 230 can bring up to $30,000; this car in this condition, was an excellent buy. #107-1965 VOLKSWAGEN 21-WINDOW Microbus. S/N 255115238. Two-tone green/light tan vinyl. L HD. Odo: 30,420 miles. Optional Market Reports Odo: 80,266 miles. Automatic. Rust-free southwestern car. Recent bare-metal repaint in original color. Cond: 3+. SOLD AT $18,090. A better car than Lot #121, which sold at $9,990, but not twice as good. This price was fair, however The other car was simply a bargain. ISRAELI #215-1963 SABRA Convertible. S/N 4703ST. Red/black vinyl. LHD. Odo: 39,083 miles. Ugly bumper guards, worn window trim. Rusty door hinges with attempted repair. Dirty gauges and speedometer needles. Rusty top frame.

Market Reports Bonhams, Fontvielle, Monaco Bonhams Europe Prince Rainier Car Collection, Fontvielle, Monaco 010. May 18, 2002 Auctioneer: Malcolm Barber Number of automotive lots: 67 Number of automotive lots sold: 35 Sale rate: 52.3% Sale total: $2,888,555 High: Lot #357, 1995 Ferrari F50 Spyder, sold at $401,271, including buyer 's premium Buyer's premium on sold lots included: 15% on the first $45,000, 10% thereafter Report by Richard Hudson-Evans Market opinions in italics T he Geneva office of Bonhams returned to their regular Monaco venue of the Prince Rainier Car Collection, where they have staged annual rather than biannual events, for what was a better-attended sale than their rivals experienced the evening before on the other side of town. As with the Barrett-Jackson/Coys sale, though, many of the big-number motors failed to find buyers. Bonharns Europe's Simon Kidston gave SCM his overview: "On the whole, it went well with automobilia selling exceptionally well, although watches and cars were patchy. However, both 1955 and 1956 Lancia Aurelia B24s performed strongly, going to new owners in Holland and Germany. The top selling car in the sale, the first F50 to be produced in 1995, was bought by a US bidder and both the 2002 and 2001 550s also sold, to Swiss and German buyers, respectively. Indeed, most of the expensive sellers were Ferraris, many of them of relatively recent manufacture. The 1964 Favre-bodied GTO replica headed for Denmark and all three Dinos of 1971 to '73 went to new homes in France and the UK." The auctioneers are hopeful that the unsold 1969/70 Matra MS650 Le Mans Sports Prototype, though a very specialized car, will eventually become a post-block sale. It would be a most suitable bolide for September's Historic Le Mans meeting and would be eligible for the Tour Auto. It certainly worked well enough as the glorious V12 was fired up in the museum and was shatteringly evocative of the period. Bonhams engineer Chris Shenton only blipped it to 4,000 rpm. In anger, it should be good for 12,500 rpm! The other big bomber was the ex-George Constantine 1956 Watkins Glen GP-winning Jaguar D-type, which was only acquired by its current owner at the Christie's Pebble Beach auction in 2000 for $996,000. The car failed to sell here, in what has become the highest profile 38  European auction location, and may be more difficult than the Matra to place. The auction house insists that, for a privately campaigned D-type, it was correctly priced and, presumably at not much more than the $780,503 amount displayed on the electronic currency board when its sale was abandoned, it could be secured in a post-block sale. After all, it is an absolutely genuine D with no questions or missing years, which is more than can be said for many of the others. "Times have changed and the people who buy have become very picky," says Kidston. "Cars stand a better chance of selling if they're fresh to market—but they do need to be exactly the right model, and not almost the right model. Many buyers are now prepared to wait for the best, leaving some cars out in the wilderness."—R.H-E. ENGLISH #313-1961 JAGUAR Mk 11 3.8 Sedan. S/N P216150BW. Dark blue/burgundy. LHD.

Milky windshield corner. Cracked original leather. Chrome wires very rough. Cond: 3+. SOLD AT $123,503. Lots of bids for this. Being one of only 36 DB6 SWB rag tops, it is really a DB5 convertible and therefore priced accordingly.

Odo: 29,278 kms. Raced in Casablanca in 1956. Very scabby and dull exterior. Hardly any chrome left. Interior even more parently all perfect. Cond: 1. SOLD AT $35,376.

Contact Mandi, 800/968-4444, ext. 257 mandi@kruseinternational.com 42  fter their first and costly foray into Mediterranean-side auctioneering two years ago, Barrett-Jackson bravely came back to the Monaco Historic Race weekend for more. Or, as it turned out, for quite a lot less in terms of the takings. This auction was a repeat of their 2000 joint venture with the London house of Coys, which compiled the catalogue, provided most of the staff, and whose Principal Douglas Jamieson occupied pole position on the rostrum. The Anglo-US team went to bat first, too, opting to stage their show the day before their rivals Bonhams and employing the brand-new Grimaldi Conference Center venue on the more fashionable west side of the diminutive Mediterranean tax haven. However, as those Euro movers and shakers who are able to divert any spare funds they may still have away from equities or antiquities seem to be using them to fuel the current European real estate bonanza, there were many empty seats and few bidders in the room. Indeed, none of the top cars appeared to find new homes, with a trio of prewar Alfas, a brace of Bugs, a 1980 Le Mans NART Ferrari, even an ex-Sir Jack Brabham DB3S Aston, and both early Ferrari and Maserati lots, the latter with Evita provenance, all unsold. It was left, therefore, to the ex-BMC factory rally team Austin-Healey 3000 Mk I, which Stirling's sister Pat Moss drove to victory on the 1960 Liege-Rome-Liege, to generate some welcome applause and a new post-1987-90 boom record price of $157,708. Despite being in need of a back-to-aluminum paint job due to a rash of microblistering, an older restoration that had not wiped out all traces of this car's action-packed past was holding up well. The car's thick history file was a credit to vendor Peter Butt, in whose caring hands this, the most celebrated of all the Abingdon Healeys, had been entrusted for the last 30 years. Although, surprisingly in view of the sale location, there were no takers for a raft of early 1980s Grand Prix cars from the Kohler Fl Collection, there was much interest in taking on an Alfa GTA resto project. The originally Conrero- Sports Car Market

Cogs/Barrett-Jackson, Monaco crafted 1966 Alfa Romeo GTA "Competizione," which had been driven by Giunti at Mugello and had placed second in the San Martino Rally—but was in a most distressed state— raised $30,624. Only at an auction can the real value of something like this be determined. Among the road-going Ferraris, a 1964 275 GTS Spyder, first owned by US racer John von Neumann, was declared sold afterwards for $199,671. A 1962 former 250 GTE, now morphed into a superbly replicated 250 GT short-wheelbase coupe, did well under the hammer, costing the next owner $159,864. Both cars were absolutely mint in all departments. Hopefully, B-J and Coys will persevere with a fixture in Monaco, where every other year there is such a high-quality captive audience in town to see the historics racing round the streets. Both the timing and location of their auction were spot-on this year. The cars weren't bad either, with something on offer for all tastes and budgets. However, what is really needed to boost both sale total and hit rate is an increase in market confidence. While this will come about partly when the old-timer market is perceived to be a sound and fun place to invest, it will also only come about when more buyers can see each other bidding rather than having to compete with mystery players on sale-room telephones.— R.H-E.

Christie's, New York, NY CHRISTIE S Christie 's Rockefeller Center, New York, New York May 18, 2002 Auctioneer: Dermot Chichester Number of automotive lots: 47 Number of automotive lots sold: 25 Sale rate: 53.1% Sale total: $3,822,600 High: Lot #39, 1931 Isotta Fraschini Tipo 8B Viggo Jensen Cabriolet d'Orsay, sold for $1,382,500, including buyer's premium Buyer's premium on sold lots included: 17.5% on the first $100,000, 10% thereafter Report by Dave Kinney Photos by Donald Osborne Market opinions in italics hristie's inaugural automotive sale at Rockefeller Center can be looked at in two lights. The view the auction company would like you to see is one of a successful auction with $3,822,600 in sales, a 53% sale rate, and a nearly unbelievable amount of pre-auction publicity bringing attention to the streets of Manhattan that had nothing to do with the events of September 11. C The less flattering side of the story—something that must certainly weigh heavily on the minds of Christie's management—lies in the fact that had the top two lots gone unsold, an astounding $2,237,000 of the $3,822,600 total would have been lost. That would have left just the commission on $1,585,600 in table scraps to pay the bills. Rockefeller Center is the North American base of Christie's operations. In the past few years, the Christie's annual New York auction was held in Tarrytown, New York, not too far from Manhattan, but not exactly a short stroll from the main offices. Moving this event to Rockefeller Center, with all the cars available for public display, was a publicity success. NBC's Today Show, itself broadcast from the same area, did a live segment on the Thursday morning before the sale, thus bringing Christie's name and publicity for the event before tens of millions of viewers. On Friday, Celine Dion's live outdoor concert, also broadcast on Today, had the cars as a visual backdrop in many of the shots. The auction, held inside with the vehicles remaining outside in a rain storm, was conducted in an upstairs salesroom in Christie's offices. Attendance was good, with perhaps 300 to 400 bidders and viewers in the house. Plenty of activity was generated on the phone, as at least 15 auction house staffers kept the lines open to bidders unable to make it to the event in person. Interesting sales include two cars that were 3 sold to benefit charities. The late actor Dudley Moore's Bentley, a 1963 right-hand-drive S3 Continental bodied by James Young, was reported sold for $145,000 to a private US buyer. Prowler collector Michael Krehel paid $200,000 for the very last Prowler built, augmented with what must be every Prowler toy in the book (see Profile on page 75).

With the rostrum set up in the Works Service workshop and the sale lots occupying the service bays, upmarket catering could be partaken in a tent on the lawn outside the showroom. Current models led the top results. A 2000 Vantage Volante short-chassis—one of only eight supercharged "Special Editions" from the Special Projects Team—raised $369,025, and $238,235 was invested in a V12 Vanquish coupe with only 950 miles on the clock—a small premium over the list price of $232,000 to beat the waiting list. "It was the ultimate acid test of enthusiast demand that someone was prepared to pay that little extra to get one quickly," said Bonhams Director James Knight. This year's sale stats were boosted by all seven lots of 1952-63 vintage from the wellstocked motor house of Robert Leyba changing hands. The Chairman of the German section of AMOC, who has driven his DB4GT coast to coast in the US, was thinning his collection to focus more clearly on his competition cars, which include no less than three DB2 Factory Team cars—VMF 63, VMF 65 and XMC 76. All the Leyba cars in the sale had benefited from having been fettled in the Hamburg workshop of Heino Landsberg, with engineering input from Chris Woodgate. After a much higher proportion of cars sold versus last year's auction (which had a 50% sale rate), Knight told SCM, "We are delighted with the sale results and, once again, feel privileged to have been so generously hosted by Kingsley Riding-Felce and his team at Aston Martin Lagonda Works Service Department."

That old neighborhood garage-sale maxim was proven true by RM's auction of the Richard Freshman Collection. From the trash perspective, the Barker hangar in Santa Monica, where the sale was conducted, held few notable cars and a surplus of leftover parts and beaters both years and miles beyond fiscal fertility. For treasure hunters, the docket held Abarth and Siata instrument clusters, a Bugatti Type 57 starter and generator, and other parts you would be hard pressed to find elsewhere. If you had been looking for a Porsche 904-spec race engine or an Offy V16, the Freshman auction was the place to be. 0 AT $238,235. The buyer thought it worth paying $6,235 over the $232,000 list price to jump the current two-year waiting list for this brandnew car Seems reasonable enough, given the $125,000 premium Z8 owners were paying just 18 months ago.• August, 2002  Held in conjunction with the Ferrari Club of America's international meet, and only a few minutes away from the FCA's Century City location, the sale attracted both serious players and casual enthusiasts. Top sales included a 1967 Ferrari 500 Superfast that sold for $297,000, a 1983 Williams Formula 1 race car that brought $192,500, and a 1965 Porsche 356 GS/GT 2-liter four-cam coupe that went for $173,000. Aside from the cars, a Ferrari 275 GTB tool roll sold for $9,775, a Ferrari 250 GTE engine was bought for $26,450, and a 250 GT SWB engine achieved $51,750. Rumor has it that an SCM contributor, known by the cognoscenti as "the King of Toasted Ponies," went home with a trailer full of booty. Considering the sale was created to sell some of Freshman's collection, and wasn't a regular stop on RM's annual calendar, it can be called a reasonable success. More than 56% of the lots, and nearly all of Freshman's cars, sold for a total of $1.4m, not a bad take for an afternoon's worth of gavel-bashing.— Brian Rabold 53 Market Reports

Price Guide The 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 1-6 scale, 1 being the best. These values are set by sales activity, primarily in the United States, as well as conversations with owners, dealers and collectors. As condition and history are the ultimate determinants of value, each car must be evaluated according to its own merits. Prices below assume cars with "no stories attached." An automobile priced above our guide is not necessarily overpriced, nor is one priced below a bargain. * Indicates approximate production numbers.

1967 Giulia Sprint GT Veloce Chassis number: AR 243657 As described by the seller on eBay Motors: T A former California car, it is currently in Portland, Oregon. As the car is mechanically tip-top, the next step is paint. Known issues include rust at the right fender bottom (two very small bubbles), five body dings and a fixable crease in the rear bumper. Mechanically, the car has no problems and will require regular maintenance only. This second-owner car is a cherry and way neat. Treat yourself to a fine Italian car with a historic racing lineage. his rare Alfa is a complete car. All bits and pieces are intact. No alterations or modifications have been made, inside or out. It has been well kept and always garaged. It is in daily-driving condition, and is rarely driven except in dry weather. The car has an excellent interior with new rugs. Both front seats have been restored, not just recovered. All gauges are functional. Overall, the car is in very nice shape. Years produced  Number produced  Original list price  SCM Price Guide  Tune-up  Distributor cap  Original list price  Chassis #  Engine #  This car, item 1837631059 on eBay Motors, sold for $7,300. The sale received 32 bids from 15 individuals, and ended on June 27, 2002. A classically simple and durable design that can be maintained with easily available and inexpensive parts is an almost irresistible combination. And that describes the 1600-cc Alfa GTV There's a lot to like about the GTV. First, it is ultimately simple—it is one of the last of the Alfas that can be maintained with a standard set of hand tools. The alloy dual overhead-cam engine is a classic design, and the dual Weber carburetors make an impressive visual and performance statement. The fully synchronizedfive-speed gearbox was considered the benchmark of its time. And though Porsche enthusiasts sneered at Alfa's solid rear axle, it nevertheless provided more predictable and forgiving performance than the independent rear suspension of the German car In spite of its compact exterior dimensions, the interior of the GTV is surprisingly roomy and its front bucket seats provide excellent lateral support during heavy cornering. There are small rear seats, a feature that allowed the cars to run as sedans in the US, where the competition in the Trans-Am between GTVs and Pete Brock 's Datsun 510s was fierce. Virtually every Alfa advertisement mentions the marque 's racing history. In the case of the GTV, the link is not overblown, since the hugely successful GTA competition cars are based on this model. The GTV was introduced in 1966 as a slightly re- 1972 Alfa Romeo 2000 GTV Coupe Lot #61, SN 2437757 Condition: 3 Coys; Silverstone, England; July 24, 1998 Sold at $8,980 SCM ITV 14974 Comparables Club  Web site  Alternatives  SCM Investment Grade  1966-68 14,240 $5,550 $8,500-$ 12,000 $250 $50 $5,550 Engine bulkhead Passenger's side of engine near distributor AROC, 10 Raskin Road, Morristown, NJ 07960 www.aroc-usa.org Fiat 124 coupe, Datsun 240Z; Porsche 944; BMW 630, 633 vised version of the Sprint GT. The world had fallen in love with the hatchback styling of the Giulietta and Giulia 1600 Sprints, and initial reaction to the new notchback was lukewarm. Alfa came up with the competition GTA to promote the new body style. There is no doubt that the outstanding success of the GTA ensured the popularity of the GTV. The selling price of $7,300, slightly below SCM's Price Guide range of $8,500 to $12,000, probably reflects the fact that some repairs are still needed by this car including a paint job. Thirty-two bids are a lot, but the fact that the bidding competition failed to push the final price into SCM's price range is evidence of the essentially penurious nature of most Alfa owners. Bidding started at $100, and it took 13 more bids to break $2,000. A serious bidder entered at $5,250, and kept bidding to $7,200. With a minute left in the auction, the new owner entered his only bid. The action revealed a good e-bidding strategy: stay out until the last moment so as not to drive up the price needlessly, then just top the high bid. This presumes you know what you're willing to pay and have enough discipline not to "bid with your heart" as the auctioneers love to urge. However you have to wonder some when this GTV is described as "rare"—more than 14,000 were made—and its most appealing feature is that it is "complete." Admittedly, the car is going on 35 years of age, but there are plenty examples of this model still around. In any event, for the money, the new owner got a potentially trouble-free, supposedly two-owner car with only 100,000 claimed miles. The blown head gaskets that plagued later 1750 and 2000 Alfa models are almost unknown on the 1600-cc Giulia, and the car 's mostly California history has managed to stave off serious rust. The corrosion mentioned on this car is nominal and common. This was an era when rustproofing was in its infancy, but Alfa had not yet begun buying the rust-prone steel from Eastern European countries that led to tin-worm disaster with later models. Even if the new owner is confronted with an unexpected mechanical drama, a good used engine and transmission can be had for about $1,500, keeping the overall investment still within SCM's Price Guide range. If there are no mechanical surprises lurking, the rust is as minimal as described, and the car is in decent driving condition, this should be considered a fair deal for seller and buyer both.—Pat Braden (Historic data and photo courtesy of auction company.)• 1968 Alfa Romeo 1750 GTV Coupe Lot #707A, SN 50808 Condition: 4 Brooks Europe; London, England; December 1, 1998 Sold at $2,657 SCM ID# 3107

Etceterini and Friends Profile 1956 OSCA 1.5-Liter Tipo MT4 Chassis number: 1178 Engine number: 1533 his wonderfully useable, well-presented and historic product of the world-famous Maserati brothers' company "Officina Specializzata Costruzione Automobili," better known as "OSCA," was purchased new from the Bolognese factory in Italy by Kleenex millionaire James H. "Gentleman Jim" Kimberly, in 1956. At the Road America circuit in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin, that September, Kimberly and his brilliant codriver, none other than the great Carroll Shelby, drove this MT4 to first place in the Four-Hour enduro race for cars up to two liters in engine capacity. After Gentleman Jim's ownership, S/N 1178 passed on to further considerable success through the hands of such subsequent owners as Otto Linton and Harry Beck. Otto Linton, racing in partnership with co-drivers Beck and Hal Stetson, finished third in class in the World Championship-qualifying 1957 Sebring 12-Hours classic. T In 1958 the car raced in another Sebring 12-Hours endurance classic. This time 1178, driven by Stetson and Beck, actually won the 1500-cc sports-racing car class outright—defeating all the Porsche opposition. Later that summer, Harry Beck and new owner John Milos ran this car in the Marlboro 6-Hours race. The high-revving twin-overhead camshaft fourcylinder engine finished first, beating out a field of 26 cars that included Fred Windridge's rumbling '57 Chevrolet Corvette V8. 1178 was eventually acquired in 1985 after it underwent a thorough restoration. In the hands of the present owner, 1178 has been painstakingly maintained and race-prepared by KTR European Motorsports of Ayer, Massachusetts, and it has been used extensively and raced by the current vendor as a member of the VSCCA for the past 16 years. The details of work carried out over the years by KTR European Motorsports are documented at length in the extensive file preserved with the car. During the present ownership, every mechanical part of 1178 "has been brought up to snuff" The electrical parts, the generator and the starter have been rewound, the brakes improved, all of the pumps reconditioned, the transmissions improved by adjustment and the steering components disas- Number produced  Original list price  SCM Price Guide  Years produced  Tune-up/major service  Distributor cap  Chassis #  Engine #  Club  Alternatives  1948-56 72 him, but more so because it is part of the original package passed on with 1178 from Kimberly. Other parts offered here are similarly important. How would one replace an original-equipment OSCA distributor if one did not have a spare? The engine currently installed in the car is number 1533, which has benefited from a major overhaul by KTR involving installation of a new crankshaft and replacement of certain bearings. Since then, this engine has proved to be "virtually trouble free." This car sold for $266,500, including buyer premium, at the Bonhams auction in Brookline, Massachusetts, held May 4, 2002.

All of this has been done plus modifications required by the VSCCA (such as an external kill-switch on the starboard side) while maintaining the original parts where possible. An immensely attractive feature of 1178 is that a spare engine, transmission and other parts accompany this lot. During its racing career in its present ownership both engines and both transmissions have been employed. The present vendor has resisted offers made to him for the spare engine in the past, not only because of the convenience it represented to 1949 OSCA MT4 Lot #748, SN 1112 Condition: 1 Right front suspension at top shock mount Left side of block Cisitalia 202MM, Maserati A6GCS, Siata 208S, Fiat 8V A $200,000-$275,000 $5,000 N/A $9,000 In 1947 the Maserati brothers were finally contractuallyfree to leave the company that bore their names, which had been sold ten years earlier to industrialist Adolfo Orsi. They were eager to move on, as Adolfo 's son, Omen wanted the brothers to produce a touring car, which did not mesh with their passion for building racers. Wasting no time, the brothers moved to Bologna, and opened a small factory with an unassuming acronym (OSCA), which translated loosely to "the workshop specializing in construction ofautomobiles. ' Their very first effort was the MT4, which was powered by ajewel-like four-cylinder engine with a single cam. The minimalist cigar-shaped body had two small seats and easily removable cycle fenders, permitting it to race in both formula and sports car races. The design evolved to a twincam 1350-cc engine, and by 1954 they were building a quintessential Italian barchetta with a 1450-cc engine, usually fitted with an elegant Fratelli Morelli or Coli body. The surprisingly simple tube chassis (live axle in the rear, A-arms up front) was very rigid, and the MT4 handled like a dream.

It was always in contention, and often victorious. Edgar Frontiers of Chicago, quite a driver in his own right, imported MT4s to the States. McAfee, Cunningham, Lloyd and Kimberly, to name a few, scored from Pomona to Sebring with MT4s. Which brings us to S/N 1178. This MT4 is a very rare and delightful example. It was presented and sold with no stories. It is original, with a known and impressive provenance, and no one has claimed to have another chassis carrying the same number Looking at the car from a historical point of view, it is completely authentic. No one has tried to improve its beautiful Fratelli Morelli body. No one has made hurried paddock repairs after a shunt in practice. Its owners/drivers list reads like a Who's Who of North American racing. Gentleman Jim Kimberly was a giant on the North American racing scene, and was a class act to boot. True to his form, he ordered the car with an additional engine and gearbox. Carroll Shelby needs no introduction, and the other drivers were also well known and respected in their time. First in class at Sebring and first overall at the Marlboro enduro are not chopped liver This car is the total package. At this point a few words should be said about the consignor He should be lauded for not selling the engine and gearbox separately. More than likely, the makers of fakes would have paid a pretty penny for them; but the seller is also a class act, as much as Gentleman Jim was. During a recent trip to New York I had the pleasure and the privilege of meeting him. He is straightforward, very knowledgeable, urbane and charming. I congratulate the smart or lucky buyer Not only has he bought a piece of history, but the price is more than right. (One real M'T4 with much lesser history and without spares is currently on the market for more than $300k.)

German Car Profile 1963 Porsche 356 Carrera 2 GS/GT Coupe Chassis number: 122561 Engine number: 98016 orsche had great success racing 356 Carreras in many different venues. In 1961 at Sebring, Porsche had two class wins with the Carrera 2: the GT class with Ben Pon and Joe Buzzetta, and the Prototype class with Don Webster and Bruce Jennings. After Joe Buzzetta's win, he remarked of the Carrera: "If I had a choice of any one of the Porsches I'd raced to keep for a road car, it would be that one." The Carrera engine was by far the most technologically advanced powerplant produced by Porsche for the 356. As the Carrera engine not only added more power but was heavier as well, Porsche asked Reutter to build a series of lightweight bodies, which resulted in the GT designation. The extra power and tail-heavy weight distribution made this a demanding car to drive. The plain-bearing 2-liter engine would happily rev past 7,500 rpm, but Porsche warned customers against exceeding 6,500 for a long period due to excessive fuel consumption and engine wear. The stunning and rare example pictured here is finished in silver with lightweight blue competition seats, plexiglass windows and a factoryfitted roll bar. Weight-saving modifications of the GT body include aluminum hood, doors, deck lid and deletion of the radio and heater. With 44,000 miles from new, there are less than 500 miles since a complete rebuild. It is totally original except for the paint and some carpeting. This example's original type 587/2 160-bhp GT engine was replaced at the factory with a 587/3 904-spec engine in April 1964, as noted on the factory Kardex. This 180-bhp 904-spec power plant remains in the car today. It has recently had a tune-up by well-known four-cam expert Bill Doyle. All numbers match the Kardex for this Carrera, including the 904 engine upgrade. Years produced  Number produced  Original list price  SCM Price Guide  Richard Freshman purchased the completely original car in 1986. His goal was to preserve this exotic piece of Porsche history, and he worked with well-known 356 expert and historian Ron Roland to do so. This example is eligible for the popular Tour Auto Retrospective. Tune-up/major service  Distributor cap  4 down to what "Carrera 2 GS/GT "means in mechanical terms. Early Carrera engines were taken straight from the highly successful 550 and RS/RSK mid-engine Spyder cars and placed in standard 356 and 356A coupe (and Speedster) bodies starting in 1955. This was a highly sporting car for the street, with a roller bearing crankshaft, four cams driven by a nightmarishly complex set of bevel gears, and true racing power produced high in the rpm range. This same type of motor even powered Porsche's F] engines in the late '50s and early '60s. But the roller-bearing bottom end was not well suited for the street. You had to keep the rpms up or risk lugging the engine, which could cause the roller pins to wear very rapidly. Frequent rebuilds were the norm. Porsche answered this in 1958 with the first plain-bearing bottom endfor a four-cam engine, first in 1500- and 1600-cc sizes. In 1962 the first 2-liter Carrera engines were developed, hence the suffix "2." These Carrera 2 engines were by far the best of the lot, and were selected for the fearsome 904 race car, producing 130 DIN hp in GS trim, 160 hp for the GT version, and 180 hp in the 904 GTS. 1962-65 approx. 445 $9,095 $82,500-$100,000 $2,000 $500 Chassis # On horizontal bulkhead under front lid Engine #  Club  Web site  Alternative  In 1960, Uli Wieselmann wrote: "Already an enthusiast's carriage of the first magnitude, the Carrera will one day be found only in a few isolated examples in the hands of real connoisseurs. They'll care for it, polish it, and drive it amongst everyday cars secure in the knowledge that they possess a product of technical delicacy that's enveloped in romance. No matter how perfect, refrigerators and typewriters can never so aspire." This 356 sold for $173,250, including buyer's premium, at RM's Santa Monica sale on May 23, 2002. This price, $150,000 more than a decent 356 coupe is worth, was well above "typical" 356 Carrera 2 coupe prices as well. Nonetheless, it represents a fair market value on what is one of the rarest late 356 cars, the Carrera 2 GS/GT. The explanation of value comes SCM Investment Grade  On rear-most engine case 356 Registry, 27244 Ryan Road, Warren, MI 48092 www.356registry.org Alfa TZ-1, Ferrari 355 Challenge A Carrera road cars are called GS—for "Grand Sport"—and were meant to be the ultimate street car. The GT designation means the car has special lightweight body panels for racing purposes, as well as an engine in a higher state of tune. A copy of the factory build sheet (the Kardex) is a requirement when dealing with a 356 of this value. Also required is proof the engine is in good running order, as there are just a handful of mechanics in the world able to effectively rebuild afour-cam, and only then at significant expense. In some ways this is a 356 with all its innate simplicity removed, which now demands V12 Ferrari-levels of maintenance hassle and expense. But to a handful of Porsche purists, these four-cam cars are among the most interesting vehicles ever produced by the factory, drawing their engines and inspiration from the world-beating Spyders. As the price paid here indicates, there will always be a strong market for these exotic pieces of Porsche history—Jim Schrager (Historic data and photo courtesy of auction company.)• 1964 Porsche 356 Carrera 2 Coupe Comparables Lot #159, S/N 122561 Condition: 3 RM; Monterey, California; August 26, 1999  Sold at $88,000 SCM ID# 21829 RM; 1959 Porsche 356 GS/GT 1600S Lot #456, S/N 84949 Condition: 3 Monterey, California; August 26, 1999 Sold at $126,500 SCM ID# 11125

Porsche Gesprach / Jim Schrager Slow Cars and Fast Buyers earMr. Schrager: Lam interested in buying a 356 coupe and have been readingyour previous columns. I amjust beginning to learn about the cars. I spent a day last week test driving two 356B coupes—a 1600 Normal and a 1600 Super. I was shocked to walk away feeling like I drove two slightly different VW Beetles. Do they all feel this way? You write as ifthese are fun cars to drive, but the ones I tested were sloths. I was careful not to abuse these cars on the test drives and tried to shift them at about 3,500 rpm. What gives?—TJB, via phone D Dear TJB: First, you need to adjust your driving style. While I applaud your gentleness with other people's machinery, 356s produce power high in the rpm range. This, coupled with a rather long throw to the gas pedal, means you have to push a long way down and consciously drive in the higher rpm range to make them come alive. You simply can't drive a 356 like a Corvette. Drive the car easily while it is cold. Then, once it is into the running range, put the car through its paces. Stay away from the redline in first gear but, once into second, take it up to the redline, shift and do it again in third. You should get a good feel for the power this way. The tach is an especially important instrument in a 356. The green bands, which start at either 2,500 or 3,000 rpm and run to the redline, show you where the power is produced. If you push hard on the gas pedal prior to being in the green zone, don't expect much response from the engine. In addition to the driving style issues, there are many reasons why a particular 356 may seem slow. The accelerator linkage may be out of adjustment far enough so that the carbs are only partially opening. This will have a serious effect on horsepower. The car you are testing may also be way out of tune, have a worn distributor, incorrect carburetors, or be comprised of an eclectic and probably mismatched set of internal engine parts. There are many unsorted cars out there. web: www.pamotoncom SI 4 10 North 610.666.1966 CIN7 Circle Dr. Oaks, PA 19456 fax 610.666.9422 356 tach showing 2,500-5,500 green zone where power is produced. A good 356 will feel light and lively, and, most of all, fun to drive. The controls will be easy and direct, and once you realize the power resides above 3,000 rpm, you'll find the car great fun. Even a standard-issue 356 Normal should pull strongly all the way up to (and beyond) its 4,500 redline. This makes the car feel sporty and is one of the really endearing parts of the 356 package. Even better, if it is a properly rebuilt motor, it should run for years at high rpm with no ill effects. email: info©pamotor.com 1957 Austin-Healey 100/6 4,000 original miles, well restored, excellent throughout, Red/Black, exPres.

Dear Mr. Schrager: I enjoyed your comments in the June issue (page 53) regarding thefellow in the Midwest with a 1998911 Cariera 2Sfor sale. I have one of these wide-body Cars as well, but my story is a bit different than his. Instead of paying over $70k as he did, I bought mine very early in the game for $62k I read about the car in Christophorus (the Porschefactory publication) nearly six months before they were in the US. I think each dealer got one or two. Mine is black on black mint with no paint work and 7k miles. Tell me, how I am doing on value?— Ted Boon Chang, Laguna Nigue4 CA Dear Mr. Chang: The Carrera 2S ("C2S") is a normally aspirated 993 model 911 with Turbo bodywork. They arrived in the US in 1997 with absolutely no fanfare. You were wise to buy before they became one of the hyped "last of something" 911s, such as the 1979 Turbos, the 1989 Speedsters, the 1994 C2 Turbos, and so on. As time passed, the word spread that these were the "last of the aircooled cars" and Porsche began producing loads of them, mostly for the fad-obsessed US market. As demand for the C2S grew, dealers pushed prices up as high as $100,000 and Porsche fanatics fretted about the impending water-cooled 996 cars not being "real" Porsches. I would peg the value of your car in the $60,000 to $64,000 range, meaning that you are in good shape at the current time. By buying right, you have had the pleasure of owning a brand-new, highly desirable Porsche 911 and have suffered zero depreciation. However, your car will begin to depreciate gently with the passage of time and as miles accumulate. If you like the car, drive it and enjoy it and don't become preoccupied with value. Think of the amount it depreciates as a fair cost for the pleasure you get from driving it. On the other hand, if you simply want to get your money back, now would be a good time to sell, and you can join the "I got to drive a neat car for free" club. Most dealers didn't have a clue about the C2S when they began trickling onto lots in 1997. Surprisingly, this was true even in Porsche-crazed Southern California, where you bought your car.

American Car Profile 2002 Chrysler Prowler Chassis number: 1C3EW65G02V102034 I he Prowler, approved for concept in July 1992, was a showstopper in January 1993 when it made its debut at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. In September 1994, top management officially approved the Prowler for production and it was in 1997 that the first production version of the Prowler rolled off the line at Conner Avenue Assembly in Detroit. The Prowler salutes the great American hot rod tradition, but deliberately does so in a thoroughly contemporary manner. From the get-go, it was decided that the Prowler would be a rolling celebration of new technology and materials. Prowlers were sold as five distinct model years1997, 1999, 2000, 2001 and 2002 (there was no ,..1998 model year). Nearly 11,000 Prowlers have been built in its production history, in 12 exterior colors starting with purples  and ending with this final High Voltage Blue "Conner Avenue Edition."  Many Prowlers have been pinstriped by hand at the assembly plant  by Mr. Rudy Kutey, a well-known and highly regarded Detroit pinstriping  artist, nicknamed "Dr. Ru." The Prowler shown here, the very last Prowler  to roll off the assembly line, received special "Dr. Ru" detailing treatment  and the underside was signed by many of the men and women who work  at Conner Avenue Assembly.  This Prowler is fitted with a number of one-of-a-kind features. Its  paintwork has never appeared on another Prowler. A Mopar luggage  trailer, also painted High Voltage Blue, is included, as well as a Prowler  "time capsule" filled with period memorabilia. A special edition bright  dipped anodized aluminum frame creates a mirror-like show car under-  body appearance, and the body-color shifter bezel and hood badge are  also unique to the last Prowler.  Just as the first Prowler began its life at the most prestigious auto shows in the world, DaimlerChrysler Corporation and the Chrysler Brand felt it was fitting Years produced  Number p produced   to pay tribute to the model's end of production by Tune up/major service  auctioning off the last Prowler to benefit the Multiple Sclerosis Society. The money will be used to help end the effects of this devastating disease.  Original list price Distributor cap   This car sold for $200,000, including buyer 's  premium, at Christie 's sale held at Rockefeller Center in New York City, May 18, 2002.  Chassis #  Engine #  Club  Web site  Two hundred large for a Prowler? Can it be? Alternatives Are they all worth more now? Well, yes and no. Yes,  it can be, because it did happen. And no, they are not  all worth more now.  .... ,  museum, or to a top executive who was instrumental to the success ofthe car Chrysler made sure the world knew this was the last Prowler built, and that it was going to be available to the public. Setting it and its trailer apart are the unique color a "time capsule" of Prowler trash and trinkets, the signatures of the assembly team, and a bright, dipped frame. But $200,000 for a car that could be duplicated for less than one quarter of that price? I would guess that a large part of the price was due to the charitable tie-in, just as we saw a special "Louis Vuitton" edition PT Cruiser bring more than $100,000 when auctioned for a charitable cause two years ago. In both cases, the difference between the "true market value" of the car (you can rest assured that an appraisal by one of my steely-eyed compatriots has already been ordered up), and the amount paid, end up being a tax-deductible contribution, Hence both buyer and charity benefit. (2 264 are Chrysler badged) of the "KISS" Prowler for $140,400 in 2001 didn't $45,400 change things. Regular Prowlers have been in a $315 gentle downward slide for the past couple ofyears, 1997 2002 affected one bit by this sale, just as the purchase 10,746 - Plymouth/Chrysler Prowler Club; Prowler Owners Association  Driver's side of windshield $30,000 to $40,000 range, depending on miles Back of left cylinder head But aside from value, we should take a moment www.prowlerclub.com ; to commend Chrysler, and the now departed Plywww.prowleronline.com mouth, for creating the Prowler in the first place. It BMW Mini Cooper S, Lotus Elise, was a bold statement by a company that was truly PT Cruiser with 426 Hemi firing on all cylinders, translating concept cars to reality in record time, with a galvanized workforce The first and last of a series often command a premium, although not  always for the same reasons. The first Prowler available for sale to the  public, although not necessarily the first Prowler built, sold at a Kruse  International auction in August of 1997 for $141,000. Its high price was  due primarily to the "got to be first, don't care what it costs" guys duking  it out with their lines of credit. If offered again today, it is doubtful that car  would bring half that amount.  When the last of a car series turns up, the collector car world also takes  notice. Sometimes the last of a series will be given as a gift to a factory  1999 Plymouth Prowler KISS Custom Lot #270, S/N 1P3EW65G6XV500383 Condition: 1 from CEO to assembly-line worker all passionately committed to the Chrysler way of doing things. No other manufacturer in recent memory has had the courage to build such an audacious car and the automotive world is the richer for their efforts. Times are different now for Chrysler, and we can only hope that not too deep in the design studios, the replacement for the Prowler lurks, nearly ready to be unveiled. Another concept car coming to life would be exciting for the automotive community, and invigorating for the folks at Chrysler —Dave Kinney and Keith Martin (Historic data courtesy of auction company.)• Comparables Barrett-Jackson; Los Angeles, California; June 15, 2001 Sold at $140,400 SCM ID# 24355 James G Murphy; Kenmore, Washington; May 19, 2001 Sold at $49,875 SCM ID# 23624 Lot #19, S/N 1B3BR65E5PV200358 Condition: 1 2000 Plymouth Prowler $31 and prices are fairly predictable, staying in the and condition.

Affordable Classics f you are looking for a practical roadster with style, fine handling, comfort, reliability and high build quality, the Mercedes-Benz 380SL is the answer. For less than $15,000, nothing touches it in terms of an overall package. The 380SL is part of the fourth generation of the Mercedes-Benz SLs. Designated the type R107 chassis, it began production in 1971 and was completely different from the 230, 250 and 280SLs (type R113) that it replaced. The 1981 380SL came to the US market with a 3.8-liter 155-horsepower, all-aluminum overhead V8 mated to a four-speed automatic transmission. Weighing in at 3,560 pounds, and with modest horsepower and spring rates chosen for comfort, it was a less-than-inspiring performer (0 to 60 in 11.5 seconds). Yet in the Mercedes tradition, it imparted a feeling of predictability, even when pushed to its limits. I With proper maintenance, these cars are extremely durable. Rust is seldom a problem on a 380SL, unless it results from shoddy accident repairs. If the tinworm does show up, it will generally be in the front fender area around the headlights and the rear quarter panels near the fender lip. Of course, cars with improper accident repairs should be avoided altogether. With 1981-83 380SL engines, determine whether the original, weak single-row cam chain has been replaced with the stronger double-row 1980-85 Mercedes-Benz 380SL Convertible option, making them more desirable. If more power is your game, consider the final version of the R107s, the 560SL (198689), which offered a 47% increase in power along with a refined suspension. However, these cars cost a few thousand more and 380SL devotees consider the 560SLs to be less well balanced than the smaller-engined cars. Cheap sophistication. chain. If not, the update to double-row, which must be done, will cost about $3,000. Also, MercedesBenz has a standing recall campaign for cracks in the front suspension's lower control arm mounting points. Any authorized dealer will be able to tell you if your car has been properly updated. While the mechanicals are robust, the interiors deteriorate with prolonged exposure to the sun. Many of the 380SLs we see at auction have cracked dash tops or cheapie dash covers, improperly reupholstered seats and faded gauges. Given the relatively low value of the 380SL, it doesn't make any sense to buy a car with these problems.

In late 1928, Bugatti penned the outline of an ultimate automobile: the fabulous Type 41 "Royale," with a 14.7-liter, 300-hp engine and a wheelbase that came close to 15 feet. The followon to this car was the 1929 supercharged 5.3-liter, single-overhead cam Type 46, with a wheelbase measuring nearly 12 feet. In 1930, a twin-cam version of this en- 15U GATTI TY 0 gine appeared as the Type 50. In spite of the fact that these two chassis were intended for luxurious passenger cars, some were fitted with lightweight bodies and raced with some success. The most unusual feature of these two models is the transmission being in unit with the rear differential. This layout, coupled with the nonremovable head on the engine, means that a valve job begins by dismounting the rear axle, followed by a disassembly of the entire drivetrain. This 144-page book begins with a nine-page introduction, which nicely places the types 46 and 50 Bugattis in the context of Ettore Bugatti's total contribution to automotive technology. But after this, things go downhill rapidly. The rest of the book consists of pictures, with an index of serial numbers appended. Considering the fact that author Barrie Price is the chairman of the Bugatti Trust (England) and a lifelong Bugatti enthusiast, one would hope for more than nine pages of insight into these remarkable machines. That is not to neglect the considerable work the photos and their captions represent: it's just that the reader doesn't feel like the author has really sat down to tell the story of these two remarkable models. The feeling of being short-changed is strengthened by the serial number list, which gives the original purchasers of the chassis, but none of the subsequent owners. Surely every owner of a Type 46 or 50 will own a copy of this book. Surely, also, every one of the owners will know more about the model than is revealed in Price's brief introductory remarks.—Pat Braden August, 2002  Phone:  Publisher:  Web site:  ISBN:  Size:  Author:  Rating:  Price:  Zora Arkus-Duntov: The Legend Behind Corvette Jerry Burton Bentley Publishers 800/423-4595 www.bentleypublishers.corn 0-8376-0858-9 81/2x11 inches, hardbound 428 pages $39.95 Corvette enthusiasts **A** Casual readers  1,r0r* Was Zora Arkus-Duntov the "father of the Corvette" or a shameless self-promoter? While you won't find a clear yes or no answer to that question in Zora Arkus-Duntov: The Legend Behind Corvette, you will discover a surprisingly reasoned examination of the man's career, without the surfeit of fluff and puff so prevalent in today's automotive press. Author Burton, who is the editorial director of Corvette Quarterly, illustrates the book with hundreds of unpublished photographs, many of which were supplied from Duntov's personal collection. It is evident that he conducted exhaustive interviews with people who were close to Duntov, but it would have been beneficial if he had noted the source of some of his statements. Several of the myths associated with Duntov are dispelled in Burton's book. For example, Duntov is often given credit for the development of the Ardun head, famous in the hot-rod world, but it was not truly functional until he sold the firm to C&T Automotive. It is a stretch to call him the "Father of the Corvette" since he was still attempting to gain employment at GM when the first Corvette was introduced, although his later accomplishments cannot be ignored. Duntov's significant accomplishments with fuel injection and the Corvette SS are touted in this book, but it is also mentioned that Robert Cumberford, a former member of the Corvette design staff and now automotive design editor at Automobile magazine, suggested the Corvette Museum contained "a touch more 'Father of the Corvette' veneration of Arkus-Duntov than is strictly justified by the facts." This well-written and researched book is a must for anyone interested in an in-depth look at one of the American car industry's charismatic, larger-than-life figures, whose name will be forever linked with America's most important, and some would say only, sports car.—Carl Bomstead The Best Just Got Better!

  Leasing an Exotic Own A Daytona for $1,000 a Month G oing to a collector car auction can be fraught with dangers, many of them unconnected to the sale itself. At the RM Amelia sale, our editor was approached by Mitch Katz of Premier Financial Services, a leasing company that specializes in exotics. His approach was direct. "How much are you paying to own that Mondial?" he asked. "About $500 a month on a six-year note," was Martin's reply. "When you're ready to step up and buy a real Ferrari instead of that valet's car you're driving, let me know," he said emphatically. "We can put you into a $125,000 Daytona for about $1,000 a month. That's only ten more subscriptions a month. Just step up and do it." elk01ffilltd111 I ii ii11111,1 1), 1j,1 4. Why would I enter into a long-term lease agreement if I'm not sure whether I want to keep the vehicle? And what happens at the end of the lease? Many lessees drive the car of their dreams for a year, only to discover the car is not what they expected. Or more often, they get "collector-itis" and decide they really want a 275 GTS instead of a Daytona. If a lessee wants to terminate the lease early, they can pay it off in a lump sum in a manner similar to a bank loan. Be aware that the vehicle may have depreciated more rapidly than the loan. At the end of the term, a lessee can pay the residual and keep the car, trade it in for cash, sell it privately or dispose of it in any other way they want to. For instance, the lessee can sell their leased Ferrari to a dealer at the end of the term. If he offers you $50,000 on the car and the residual value you have agreed on with your leasing company is $40,000, then the lessee hands over $40,000 to the lessor and keeps the rest. Conversely, if the dealer pays $40,000 for the car and the residual value is $50,000, the lessee is responsible for the $10,000 difference. The remaining amount can also be refinanced at the end of the term instead of paying for it outright. 5. Which cars qualify for collector car financing, and what's the down payment? Any vehicle that the leasing company is willing to loan money against is eligible. Premier Financial Services sets a minimum value of $25,000. The down payment could range from 10 to 40 percent, depending on the buyer's credit history, the buyer's income, and the vehicle. Lease payments can be half as much as purchase ones. Upon his return, our editor asked me to explore the topic a little further. I came to the conclusion that the ultimate reason to lease a collector car is that it allows you to keep your money working for you, without tying it up in either an outright purchase or in high monthly payments. There may be tax advantages as well. In a conversation with Katz, he mentioned the questions he is most commonly asked about leasing an exotic. 1. Why is leasing less expensive than purchasing? Since there is an agreed-upon residual value at the end of the term, and you are making payments based on the difference between the finance amount and the residual, the payments are less than if the car was financed, where you are making payments on the total amount of the purchase. With a collector car, the buyer agrees with the leasing company to pay a fixed dollar amount at the end of the term. A collector car lease is typically a hybrid product, combining a lease with a much larger balloon payment at the end. 2. What are the tax advantages of leasing a collector car? In most states, sales tax on a purchase is due and payable in advance. With a lease, the tax is based on the monthly payment amount. The lessee doesn't have to pay the tax in advance so they have use of their money over the period of the lease. If the car can be put under a business name, pre-tax dollars can be used to make the payment each month. 3. How could I use a collector car in my business? People use collector cars in varying capacities. A 300SL Gullwing can impress clients, or showcase an event a business puts on. Companies can also use head-turning vehicles to advertise their company. There's a reason so many exotic cars in vintage events have some sort of discreet advertising for their owner's (or lessee's) business on them. 80 6. Can I buy the car from an individual or a dealer? Yes, lessees can buy from anywhere in the country. A leasing company like Premier just puts the financing together that allows the deal to happen. 7. Who holds the title? As the titled owner, the leasing company holds the title. The buyer is the lessee and his or her name may appear on the title as lessee, depending on the state. If you're interested in driving an exotic car and want to tie up the minimum amount necessary in the car while owning it, then a leasing program should be one of the options you consider. Leasing works especially well when the car can be linked to a business, too.

Legal Files / Alex Leventhal What If We Give You a New Boxster S? pinion surveys show car dealers, lawyers, politicians and stockbrokers lumped together in the "don't let your daughter marry one of those" category. Admittedly, some of our colleagues in these professions haven't always performed in the most stellar manner. For instance, I once represented a car dealer who sold a Ford Tempo for three times book value, financed at 18% interest, to a retarded dwarf who could not drive. Literally. This is not a joke. And there was the dealer whose mechanics let a customer's car fall off a service lift and then told the customer, "It must have come in like that." You get the idea. O In fact, however, most dealers are fair. In today's world, where customer satisfaction is so important, they really don't have much of a choice. This month's story is one with a happy ending, a situation where a dealer went above and beyond what might reasonably be expected in order to do right by a customer. A friend called me to ask my opinion about a "make right" deal he was being offered by a Porsche dealer. He had purchased a new Porsche Boxster S from his local Porsche authorized dealer. After about 7,000 miles, the top was no longer functioning correctly, so he brought the vehicle in to the selling dealer to have it serviced under the factory warranty. The dealer did in fact fix the top during that visit, but not without scratching the roll hoops in the process. This did not thrill my friend, but when made aware of the problem, the dealer promised to buff out the scratches. During the next visit, an unsuccessful attempt was made to buff the scratches out of the roll hoops. The scratches were lessened but not removed. Worse, this time some deep scratches were put into the front bumper. The dealer certainly appeared to have some personnel problems he needed to address, and my friend was becoming furious. The dealer asked for one more chance to make the problem right. The car's owner was skeptical, but agreed. The dealer promised to respray the nose of the car to repair the scratched areas and to hit the roll hoops as well. The owner was concerned that the paintwork would detract from the resale value of the car, but the dealer guaranteed it would be undetectable. Though hard to believe, this is what happened next. While the car was at the body shop to be repaired, a truck backed into it, taking out a large portion of the rear of the Porsche. At this point, the Boxster was damaged front, rear and center, and the owner was fed up. He called the dealer looking for a solution. Gradually demolished by the service department. The owner of the dealership was mortified when he heard of the new damage. He wanted to make his customer happy, and he offered him a brand-new Boxster S for $12,000 plus the old, damaged Boxster in trade. No insurance claims, no waiting for repairs, a new car that day. My friend thought this sounded like a good deal, but wanted to know what his rights were under the law, and whether the dealer was treating him fairly. I told him I thought it sounded like a square deal. Legally, he was entitled to have the vehicle repaired to an as-new standard and to be compensated for the diminution in value the vehicle would suffer as a result of having been hit at all, courtesy of the dealer's insurance company (or his own company in the unlikely event that the dealer was uninsured or insolvent). That being said, convincing an insurance company or claims adjuster (or elderly judge who drives a Chrysler Cordoba) that Porschephiles are so picky that a car repaired to like-new condition still takes a hit in value is generally very difficult, and securing payment for the same is well nigh impossible without costly litigation. In reality, without a lot of luck or legal expense, the best my friend could hope for was simply to have the repairs done well. Given his recent track record with the dealer, that didn't seem like a sure thing. In that light, the offer of a brand-new car, comparably equipped, for his car and $12,000 sounded great. The disgruntled Porsche owner would have a no-stories car that would fare much better at resale time than his repaired Boxster. And his old Boxster was sure to have depreciated $12,000 in the 7,000 miles he drove it, even had it never been hit. So, the deal was a winner as long as he had the money (which he did). To get anything more would be unlikely, even if the legal fees exceeded the $12,000 the owner had to sink into the deal. After all, he was not legally entitled to a brand-new car, only to his car being repaired properly, and to some payment for its loss in value. I told him to take the deal, which he did. The dealership had made a very fair offer without first making feints or lowball offers. They didn't try to deny their responsibility for the damage. They should be commended for acting honorably to correct their admittedly grave errors. Now, if they can just get their service department to take care of the cars that come in instead of attacking their cosmetics with a proverbial sledgehammer, we'll have a situation where everyone is a winner.

by Carl Bomstead tobili Get With the Program Pebble Beach Collectibles T he third week of August brings tens ofthousands of automotive enthusiasts to the Monterey Peninsula in California. There they can revel in a cornucopia ofvintage automotive events, including four auctions, a weekend ofvintage races at Laguna Seca, Concorso Italiano and the world's premier concours, often referred to simply as Pebble. If you're not up to spending a few million dollars for a 250 Testa Rossa, there are still plenty of ways to lighten your pocketbook and take home some memorabilia. Programs, posters and badges are three of my favorites. But first, a bit of background. The inaugural Pebble Beach Road Race was held on November 5, 1950, and followed a 1.8-mile course near the current polo field and golf course driving range. The first program (expect to pay at least $300 if you can find one) admonishes the crowd to "stay as far from the road as possible" and further states, "do not cross the road at any time." Four races are listed in the program, with the fourth, "The Pebble Beach Cup," open to the first four finishers from the previous three races. MG-TD and TCs were prevalent in the smaller-displacement classes, but an XK 120 from the unlimited class was the overall winner. The program also lists, on less than a page, the 31 entries for the initial Concours d'Elegance. The majority of entrants were from the local area and had participated in the road race. The other cars, with few exceptions, were fresh from the showroom or only a few years old. Best of Show went to Sterling Edwards (one of the organizers of the event) and his Edwards Sports Car, his own creation with Ford Ardun heads. Edwards also next day. The road race and Concours contin THE FIRST ANNUAL Del Monte Properties halted racing on their holdings and even came close to canceling the Concours altogether. Programs from the first seven years provide a rich and interesting history of racing through one of the most picturesque areas in the world. The drivers listed include the likes of Phil Hill, Carroll Shelby, Richie Ginther and Pete Lovely. The advertisements are a time capsule, with list prices for exotic sports cars that make you ask, "What if we'd bought one and held on to it?" Until recently, programs for the first seven years were difficult to find; however, the Internet has opened a whole new marketplace. One appears in an on-line auction almost monthly, with pricing as inconsistent as a politician's promise. A realistic price for all but the 1950 program is in the $100 to $150 range. Every now and then one will fall through the cracks and sell for much less, or go over the top as one did in a January eBay auction, when a 1952 program brought $510. wteie:44; PEBBLE BEACH PEBBLE BEACH, CALIFORNIA NOVEMBER 5th, 1950 Posters were produced for the road race during the first eight years, with minor mention of the Concours. Beginning in 1958, a separate poster was offered for the Concours d'Elegance, a practice that has continued to the current day. The original artwork for the recent posters has sold in the $20,000 range. The early posters are almost impossible to find, but they have been reproduced. Prior to spending the price of a weekend at The Lodge for one, make sure you know what you are buying. As an oddball trinket, one of the unique collectibles from Pebble Beach is the homeowner shield that allows admittance onto the Del Monte properties. 17-Mile Drive is a well-known tourist attraction and a $7 fee is charged to those who want to gawk at the multi-million-dollar homes and fantasize about playing on the famed Pebble Beach golf course. The owners' shields are attached to the grilles of the residents' cars and are updated annually. Shields from the '80s, which are fairly common, sell in the $5 to $10 range. Those from the '50s and earlier are nearly impossible to find. The earliest known is from 1930, and if you "needed it" as the finishing touch for your 745 Packard as it rolled onto the 18th fairway at Pebble, would $500 be too much to pay? Probably not. won the 1500-cc to 3000-cc class the ued to be held at Pebble Beach for six more years. The event was moved to May in 1951 and April thereafter. The Concours was moved to its present site, on the famed 18th fairway, in 1952, but play on the course was not interrupted as it is now. Increased speeds led to increasing dangers. In 1956 Ernie McAfee, driving a Ferrari 121 LM, missed a shift and lost control of his car. He slid several hundred feet, crashed into a tree, and was killed instantly. Cars were moving faster than 100 miles per hour on several portions of the course and the Porsche 550 Spyders and Ferrari 750 Monzas were simply too much car for the narrow, tree-lined streets. 82 cots. His prices are aggressive—Petite priced at $5,000 and Vitesse (speed) a and always seems to do very well. Vintage collectibles from Pebble Beach are becoming increasingly popular and the prices are escalating proportionally. However, given the array of personalities and famous cars, opportunities to create "instant memorabilia" abound. A few years ago, I was able to snap a photo of Phil Hill and Carroll Shelby chatting next to the 1953 Ferrari 375 MM Vignale Spyder that Hill drove in the Carrera Panamericana race. A year later, I was able to get them both to autograph the photo; I wouldn't trade it for all the tacky car shirts in Cannel. However, if you offered me a 1949 Del Monte badge, we'd have to talk.• With the streets of the quaint town of Carmel crowded with automotive enthusiasts, it is not surprising that the merchants cater to their audience.

Bike Buys / Bengt Halvorson T 1991 Ducati 900 Supersport he 1980s were a tough time for Ducati. The quality of their products waned, and significant racing victories were few and far between. Enter the 900 Supersport. Introduced in 1990 as an affordable ($7,900) sport bike model for the US market, it offered more than adequate performance and exceptional handling. Riding on the coattails of the much more expensive, race-proven 851 superbike ($12,500) and the Paso 906 sport tourer ($7,800), the 900 took advantage of "parts-bin technology" to get an attractive performance package at a reasonable price. The crankcase and various other performance goodies came straight from its more exotic stablemates. The combination worked. SCM's bike expert, Tom Young, opines: "At that time, Ducati was just starting to get back on their feet, and they got the formula right from the start. The Supersport was reliable, looked good, performed well and was affordable." Despite its comparatively plebian two-valve heads, the vertical V-twin, with its front cylinder canted characteristically toward the front wheel, made an impressive 73 horsepower and would rev painlessly to 10,000 rpm.

Its narrow body allows the rider a tighter posture and good aerodynamics (enabling a top speed of over 130 miles per hour), plus more lean into corners. Big Brembo four-piston disc brakes provide plenty of stopping power even by today's standards. Just a few hundred of these first Supersports were sold in the US. Consequently, only a decade from new it's hard to fmd bone-stock examples that haven't been modified, abused or neglected. Used Supersports are holding their value well, according to Ian Falloon, an expert on Ducatis. With the prices of some new Ducatis eclipsing $10,000, the Supersport at half that amount is an inexpensive way to experience the distinctive Italianate character that has made Ducati such a strong brand today.• Years produced  Colors  Ducati's two-valve desmodromic valvetrain was, by this late stage in its development, relatively trouble-free—at least by Italian motorcycle standards.

The Grand Prix of Gibraltar Both lifelong racing enthusiasts and those who've only watched a bit of weekend racing coverage will be laughing out loud when they hear this classic Peter Ustinov spoken-word recording lampooning the 1960s Grand Prix scene.

Shop Manual Reprints Price as tested: $135,000 Likes: Perhaps the most beautiful shape since the Ferrari Lusso; consistent styling cues in and out; powerful V8 engine makes a great sound; a glorious car that has retro themes but isn't a slave to the past. Gripes: Too expensive, and shares mechanical components with the 7 Series; no oohs and aahs when you open the hood. Fun to drive: **-*** Fun to look at: ***** Would I buy one?: IWC* Verdict: The Z8 suffers because it stands alone in the BMW lineup. With Mercedes, there is a long-running SL lineage for each new version. For BMW, there is no high-end two seat roadster unless you go back to the 507, which is really a stretch. However, this is the best $75,000 car in the world, and prices of used ones will be there by this time next year.—K. Glovebox Notes A brief look at cars of interest that have passed through the SCM stable **1  is best Reviewed by Keith Martin and Bengt Halvorson 2002 Ford Thunderbird Price as tested: $37,240 Likes: Unmistakable American V8 character; sharp exterior design draws crowds; looks so retro-dreamy that it might even be allowed in your local cruise-in. Gripes: Unnecessarily cramped, plasticky interior; sluggish slushbox is far from sporty and doesn't allow easy manual control; excessive cowl shake betrays sportscar pretenses. Fun to drive: ** Fun to look at: ***** Would I buy one?: ** Verdict: Ford played the retro card a little too much on this one. Nevertheless, eager buyers are lining up to pay dealers' inflated prices to own the first in their neighborhood. For only $6,000 more you can get a Boxster. Need we say more?—B.H. 2002 BMW Z6

eWatch A sign of Internet auctions coming of age is the appearance of chandelier bidding. I've seen several instances now of a situation where the same seller and same underbidder keep reappearing— with a high bid just one increment away from the reserve. What a coincidence. The tactic is the same one used in a live auction—have the shill push the bidding to one bid below the reserve and wait for the next bid to push it over the top. There's a simple way to protect yourself here—set your own personal limit, and just don't go higher than you want to. A red 1987 Ferrari Mondial Cab 3.2, offered on eBay Motors, was reported sold cheaply for $26,200 after 24 bids, but Mondial owners needn't get too worked up. The description revealed the car had been damaged and is now forever cursed with a salvage title, which isn't the type of provenance prancing pony buyers look for. Alfa Montreal sellers continue to inflict carnage upon themselves in the marketplace. As pointed out by SCM'er Daniel Spector, three were recently offered on eBay Motors and all failed to meet the sellers' expectations. A decent red 1975 example received 48 bids, but $15,200 was a bit light in the seller's opinion. We think that was all the money, and the seller is probably already wishing he had taken the offer. Another Montreal, in yellow, needing a lot of help, could not get past $4,300. A third, with the engine in a box, was pushed to $6,550 by 22 bids. EBAY #2104718063—FLYING A PORCELAIN RESTROOM KEY SIGN. First bid: $100. Number of bids: 20. SOLD AT: $711.51. Date sold: 5/17/ 2002. Restroom signs have always been hot property, but this one is hard to explain. This rather small sign, identified as Flying A only by the colors, sold at an auction last year for about $275 and I passed on it at a swap meet a month ago at $500. PLEASE OBTAIN KEY IN STATION OFFICE So what is it really worth? On this particular day it was worth $711, but there is no guarantee the next one that shows up will bring this kind of money. EBAY MOTORS #1833286679-2002 BMW MINI COOPER S. First bid: $14,000. Number of bids: 22. SOLD AT: $29,200. Date sold: 6/02/2002. The final hammer price of this Mini—which can do 0 to 60 in 6.7 seconds— tive effect on the value of the authentic ones. This flies in the face of what occurs with virtually every other reproduction, as genuine supercharged examples are now pushing $300,000 and those with normal carburetors are well over $150,000. This fakey-doo was produced in 1997 with a Chevy 350-c.i. V8 and automatic transmission, and has less than 10,000 miles on the clock. It was well presented with more than 30 photographs. These repops tend to sell in the $25,000 range, so this was a good buy, but the over-riding question is what do you do with it after a few SUBSCRIPTION INFORMATION Sports Car Market magazine (ISSN #1527859X) is published monthly by Keith Martin Publications, PO Box 16130, Portland OR 97292.

Does this mean Mini owners have fallen into the same hole as those who bought the first new Thunderbirds, Vipers and Prowlers? Based on a few other sales on eBay Motors, it looks like EBAY #2111806994—ORIGINAL TUCKER SHOWROOM BANNER. First bid: $50. Number of bids: 8. SOLD AT: $449. Date sold: 6/17/2002. Tucker automobiles rarely change hands, but when they do they push the $300,000 mark. It would stand to reason that the associated memorabilia would also sell at a premium. That, they are able to show a little more financial restraint. Another S, with ten bids, sold for $25,300 which is only slightly over MSRP; a Premium edition, without the supercharger, changed hands at $22,000, receiving seven bids, which was right on the original sticker price. The $29,200 paid for this example has to be attributed to the yellow livery, which is a very limited offering. EBAY MOTORS #1835170112-1935 AUBURN REPLICA BOATTAIL SPEEDSTER. First bid. $500. Number of bids: 20. SOLD AT: $21,300. Date sold: 6/17/2002. Auburn Boattail replicas have not had a nega- however, is not the case. Tucker radios—you had to buy one when you placed an order for a car—are relatively common and don't bring much money. Brochures are not very interesting and the ashtrays, with a model Tucker covering the cigarette case, are less than $1,500. This banner is rare, considering the limited number of dealers and the time that has transpired since their demise. Taking this into account, the selling price is very reasonable and the buyer has an unusual treasure from a historic American automobile manufacturer. He also has a great conversation piece to hang in his garage. EBAY#2110250960-1925 DOBLE STEAM CAR BROCHURE. First bid: $5. Number of bids: 15. SOLD AT: $473.34. Date sold: 6/14/2002. Abner Doble built a very sophisticated steam car; however, his com- pany was unable to survive the early effects of the Depression. The Series E, built between 1923 and 1931, was priced from $8,800 to $11,200 and was bodied by Murphy. It is estimated that only 45 cars were built and the last one we are aware of selling was at a figure close to half a million dollars. The price of this brochure was not commensurate with the value of the vehicle but, as is often the case with very limited-production vehicles, the market for their brochures comes from literature collectors and the price for this black-and-white piece was about what should be expected. EBAY#2104498809—NEAR-MINT MAGNOLIA PORCELAIN SIGN. First bid: $3.76. Number of bids: 19. SOLD AT: $2,000. Date sold: 5/27/2002. Magnolia Petroleum was based in Dallas and purchased by Mobil in 1925. The brand disappeared in 1934 so this sign is at least 68 years old. The on-line description of this particular item was overly enthusiastic as far as the rarity of the sign, but it is still very desirable. Since the sign was stated to be in excellent condition, it sold for reasonable money.• .  POSTMASTER Send address changes to: Sports Car Market PO Box 16130, Portland OR 97292 CPC IPM Sales Agreement No. 1296205 Sports Car Market .  . -
