Shifting Gears by  Kohl, Mart in Keith Shuffling the Deck t's a good thing we thrive on change. During the past two months, the Martin-Banzer garage has seen a lot of comings and goings. It all started back in June when our 39,000-mile 240Z went off to a subscriber in Lorton, Virginia. With a slot in the garage to fill, we were immediately on the hunt. On July 22, our newest find arrived, a 1963 Lancia Flaminia Zagato, equipped with a 2.8-liter, triple-carbureted V6 engine. But our joy was short-lived. Our trusty mechanic, Nasko, reported that it was rusty underneath. Not terminal, but not good either. We communicated this to the person we bought the car from, who expressed surprise and concern over the corrosion. Graciously, he sent a check for the estimated amount of the rust repair. While we were made whole financially, the emotional challenge of embarking on yet another project was daunting. The 330 America was still sitting in the garage, looking for ways to suck yet more money out of our bank account. The Lancia, as a replacement for the no-problems Z-car, was supposed to offer instant pleasure without complications (or at least with as few as you can expect when dealing with cranky old cars). Gary and Mitch to the Rescue But things were about to change. SCM auction analyst Gary Hoisington and I headed out to a Mitch Silver auction at the Portland Expo Center on Saturday, September 29. Gary had several cars consigned, and I wanted to take a look at a 308 GT4 (S/N 10264) that had sold for $10,920 at Hot August Nights and was going back across the block. At the auction, all of the usual suspects gathered around the tomato-red GT4, including SCM'er Bruce Russell of Vancouver, Washington. "Nice car; I'd pay $5,000 for it," Bruce proclaimed generously. The smog equipment on the car was intact, and it came with books and tools. However, its theft-recovery branded title wasn't encour- aging. Nor were the bits and pieces on the floorboards that looked like they might have once been attached to the steering column. Nonetheless, the smell of horse blood in the water caused all of us sharks to descend, ravenously waving bidding paddles. Deep in our hearts, we each knew that this GT4, alone among the many in the world, was the one that could be bought cheap, and would need absolutely no maintenance of any kind for the foreseeable future. In other words, the red mist of the auction hall had taken over. When the bidding crossed the $10,000 mark, I dropped out and started to walk towards the door, only to find my path blocked by a 1991 Lotus Elan convertible, Fly Yellow over gray. The car belonged to Park Place Motors of Seattle, and had not sold on the block. Bear in mind that a '91 Elan has never, ever been on my short. medium or even long list of cars. It was too new, had an Isuzu motor, and a dashboard that looked like it was sourced from a Chevy Cavalier. Nonetheless, I had come prepared to buy something, and since I couldn't have the Ferrari, I figured I might as well take something else home. After a little dickering with Park Place's Andy Meyer, and a commission to Mitch, for $12,600 I was an owner. New cars are pretty addictive. In the ten-mile drive home, I was surprised by how comfortable the car was and how well things like the heater, 6  defroster, door handles and speedometer worked. Old-car fanatics will understand what simple pleasures these are. And then I thought about the effort involved in rebuilding the undercarriage on the Lancia. And the engine work the Ferrari needed. I made my decision. Within two weeks, both the Lancia and the Ferrari were gone, the Lancia to an SCM subscriber in Irvine, California, and the Ferrari to an SCM'er in Roanoke, Indiana. Both cars were sold with all flaws I was aware of fully disclosed, so the new owners knew exactly what they were getting. Suddenly where there had been a pair of expensive, arduous projects filling the garage, there was nothing but a 1991 Lotus and Cindy's '78 Alfa Spider. Just out of habit, we're spending some money on the car by having Gerry Follett of Ron Tonkin Gran Turismo give the car a onceover. The resultant list was short, and the bill should not be outrageous. With the 330 gone, we are in need of a 2+2 for the Oregon winter. In keeping with our current "let's try newer" train of thought, Cindy, Alexandra and I are on the lookout for a Mondial Coupe Quattrovalvole. If you know of a decent one, e-mail me at kmartin@sportscarmarket.com , phone 503/261-0333. But please, no "only been under water for a little while," salvage-title specials or projects. I've had enough of those. Don't worry, we're not giving up on stupid old cars that break all the time. We and our wallet are just taking a little breather. More, More, More One yellow car replaces two red projects. Beginning with this issue, all of our auction reports will be completely in full color. This is not an inexpensive upgrade, but we are able to do this thanks to our continuing rise in new subscriptions, strong renewal rates from you, our loyal readers, and on-going support from our much-appreciated advertisers. We thank all of you. There's also a new column this month, "Neat Stuff." It will showcase products that might be of use to you, whether collecting, restoring or just keeping your car looking its best. We would prefer to feature items used and evaluated by SCM subscribers—if you are using a product or service you would like us to consider, please contact Brian Rabold, SCM's editorial manager, at copyed@sportscarmarket.com . On the Cover Artist Ken Eberts is becoming SCM's Mr. December. Last year at this time, we featured his painting of a Ferrari 250 GTE on the streets of Manhattan. This year, it's "A Spritely St. Nick" that illuminates our cover. The car is a 1961 Sprite owned by Ebert's wife, Liz, who participated in gymkhanas in similar cars in the '60s. Eberts was a designer for Ford Motor Company in the mid-1960s. After switching to painting full-time, he founded the Automotive Fine Arts Society in 1983 and served at its president. He has exhibited his work at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, Amelia Island Concours, Meadow Brook, and Newport Beach. Eberts created this painting for Road & Track to use as a Christmas card last year. This watercolor and gouache painting is still in the artist's possession. "It hangs in our house every Christmas," he said. Prints are not currently available; Eberts said if there was enough interest, he would consider commissioning a run. Contact him at P.O. Box 613, Temecula, CA 92593. • Sports Car Market

Fax 503/253-2234, e-mail: mail@sportscarmarket.com DearSCM: Mike Sheehan's article on affordable Ferraris in the October issue ("Sheehan Speaks," page 23) was excellent overall. Having owned both a 308 GT4 and currently a fivespeed 400i, here are three points I think will be helpful to prospective buyers: 1) Don't hold out for a red one as both of these models look far better in blue, burgundy and silver— these colors soften their angular shapes. Not everyone looks great in a Speedo and not every Ferrari looks great in red. 2) At 6'4" my choice of Ferraris is limited and, if you can live with a "2+1," the seat rails can be moved back two to three inches to comfortably accommodate drivers of about 6'4" in a GT4 and 6'6" in the 400i. 3)! agree finding a nice GT4 at $20k plus or minus is possible but sincerely question if finding a 400i with a five-speed in the low $20k range (that doesn't have significant mechanical or cosmetic needs) is realistic without the search consuming an inordinate amount of time and expenses.—George Lampus, Portland, OR Dear SCM: I just finished Mike Sheehan's "Valve Job Wars" (Sep- tember 2001, "Sheehan Speaks," page 24) and thought I would recommend a cheaper route for your 330 America, provided it still has good compression. I have a 330 GTC that could have been used for mosquito abatement when I bought it some 13 years ago. Spark plug fouling was also a constant problem. The compression was good, all cylinders within 10% of each other, so I decided to try changing the valve stem seals. This can be done with the heads on. The challenge is to keep the valves from falling into the cylinder when the retainers and springs are removed to get at the seals. Bring the cylinder you're working on to TDC on the compression stroke. Pressurize the cylinder with 100-psi air through the spark plug hole. This keeps the valves in place. Pull the keepers and springs and change out those crusty valve stem seals. Mine were rock hard. I used some modern Mercedes stem seals as they looked better than the aftermarket Ferrari seals I got through normal sources. The seal replacement cured the smoke and I have not had a sparkplug out in ten years. Also, I wanted to add that I too take the GTC on errands with my six-year-old son. Yes, even Home Depot with wood hanging out the door window.

I am a happy Ferrari owner. I have been a customer of Ferrari for more than 20 years. I willingly signed the repurchase agreement Mr. Leventhal is referring to upon the delivery of my new 550 Barchetta Pininfarina last May. In 1995 I was happy to agree to FNA's requirement that my F50 should be leased for the first two years, which prevented me from selling it since FNA (or their bank) held the title. I still have the F50 (with over 4,000 miles now) and I enjoy it more each time I drive it. Funny thing is that it is now worth nearly double what I paid for it six years ago—what other auto manufacturer can say that? I say that Ferrari's protection of its customers, at the expense of speculators, is not only working and is to be admired but should be imitated by many other companies. My point to Mr. Leventhal is that true Ferrari enthusiasts don't care about these contracts—they care about their cars. Fifteen years ago speculators were coming out of the woodwork buying and selling Ferraris—most notably, the F40. We all remember what happened there, but does Mr. Leventhal remember how FNA was the biggest victim of all? Thanks to trial lawyers' infamous "Deep Pockets Principle" FNA was named in lawsuits filed by F40 owners against the speculators—even though FNA had no involvement in the escalation of the F40 prices. I applaud FNA and Ferrari SpA for their efforts to keep the prices fair and the cars in the hands of enthusiasts and not speculators. An example of how well this is working is the 550 Barchetta Pininfarina. These cars began arriving in the US five or six months ago, yet none have been offered for sale in the regular Ferrari channels. This proves Ferrari's claim that speculators are being thwarted.

Shelton) are all top flight, caring, professional, ethical and fair. Sure, I've had problems, but they have always been resolved fairly. Can you say the same for the speculators? Are they going to tell the first-time Ferrari buyer that his new baby came from a dealer in Tunisia? That there is no warranty on the car because Ferrari SpA has already paid the foreign dealer for the warranty in advance? That the car will always sell for substantially less in the US than its US brother? That it may prove difficult to sell or trade the car in for a new US Ferrari in the future? How ethical are these speculators? Buying and owning a Ferrari is a special experience. Part of that is developing a relationship with your dealer. I have never experienced from any other marque anything close to the level of treatment, service and attention that Ferrari, FNA and Ferrari dealers lavish upon their customers. When it comes to customer service, attention and involvement, Ferrari is in a class by themselves. But one cannot expect this treatment without first developing the relationship. And you won't develop that relationship by buying and selling 360s at $150k over what you paid for the car. You develop a relationship by getting your name on your dealer's list and buying a used Ferrari from them in the meantime. Get to know them, do the events, service your car there, etc. And when you want to sell your car, offer it first on consignment or partnership to your Ferrari dealer. They will remember that the next time you want to order one. — Conrad, Ft.

BIKE BUYS 1978 MV Agusta 750 America 1950s. His mount is likely a 500-cc, four-cylinder MV Agusta motorcycle. These red-and-silver machines won a record 75 world championships between the 1950s and the '70s, piloted by riders whose names have become legendary, including Mike Hailwood and Giacomo Agostini. P icture English racer John Surtees, riding to another victory in the was very similar, but with a restyled fuel tank and paint scheme and a larger 832-cc engine. (Ferrari is said to have objected to the Boxer name, which was changed to Monza.) Each cylinder on the 750 America was fed by its own 26-mm Dell' Orto carburetor, and the four exhaust pipes terminated in a pair of mufflers on each side. Street bikes came with chrome exhaust pipes; flat black racing pipes could be ordered from tuner Arturo Magni. era, the 750 America does not take well to running errands in rush-hour traffic. It carries its weight high, leading to a top-heavy feel around town. But on the open road, few bikes from its era can keep up with it. Handling and braking are excellent, the suspension is firm and, for the very brave, top speed is around 140 mph. Here's your ride, Mr Surtees. Count Domenico Agusta's primary business was manufacturing helicopters. His motorcycles were known for their quality of construction. The Agusta's four-cylinder engine looks similar to that of the Gilera four-cylinder race bikes, with rough-finish sand-cast crankcases topped by cylinder heads with double overhead camshafts. In 1975, Cycle Test magazine called the engine "a masterpiece of precision castings, gears, needle bearings, ball bearings and all other things in the hard goods department." The throaty sound of the engine is as appealing as its looks. MV Agusta introduced the 750 America model in the early '70s.

Ask Mr. Kerb by Michael Duffey Send your collector car questions to Mr Kerb, e-mail: copyed@sportscarmarket.com, or snailmail to Mr Kerb, PO. Box 16130, Portland, OR 97292. The Ins and Outs of Engine Swaps Dear Mr. Kerb: I sometimes see European cars with American V8s installed where a more exotic engine once lived. How big of a price reduction is appropriate for a car like that? Is it wise to restore one of these cars to the original engine?—J.B.W, via e - mail Dear Mr. W: Perhaps inspired by Shelby, Rivolta or even Briggs Cunningham, there is a fairly long tradition of engine swapping in which a Euro chassis gets a lump of domestic iron installed. Some examples? I have seen a Mopar-powered Boano, a 283 under the hood of a Ferrari 212 and a V8-powered Maserati A6G Zagato. Many of these conversions were done in the '60s when the value of the underlying car wasn't high enough to justify the cost of rebuilding the original powerplant. Today, most high-end GTs like the 212 or A6G have been converted back to their traditional drivetrains, but there remains a group of exotics that might never be returned to original. Take a car like a Maserati 3500 coupe, in running condition, with a Chevy 327 and a Muncie gearbox. This car is worth less than a stock car in the same condition, but if you had to buy and re-install the missing bits, you would easily exceed the value of a fully restored 3500. Let's say you found a Maserati 300S with a hi-pro Chevy V8 installed. To determine the value of the car, you would have to factor in the cost of the missing hard parts. An authentic 300S engine will probably cost you at least $150,000 (and then it won't match the chassis number). December, 2001  Another common swap victim was the Austin-Healey, often with a Ford or Chevy smallblock V8 replacing the original straight-six. Today, restoring an Austin-Chevy to stock condition wouldn't pencil out, even though Healey parts are cheap (at least compared to Maseratis and Ferraris). Healeys often lost a portion of their bodywork and interior sheet metal to fit the drivetrain. They got V8-friendly tires and 9-inch Ford rear axles. This makes the conversion back to stock complicated and expensive. Establishing value on a modified car, as you might guess, requires a car-by-car assessment. First we have to break down the cars into two classes. At the top are cars that are desirable whether they run or not. These include twoseat, front-engined Ferraris, desirable Maseratis like A6G Zagatos and Spiders, factory-built competition cars and other high-end, desirable, expensive GT cars. The second group of hybrids includes cars that have some collectible value, but would be far more saleable if they hadn't been bastardized. This would include cars like XK-type Jags, V12 Ferrari 2+2s, 308 series Ferraris, Healeys and front-engine serialproduction Maseratis like the 3500, Mistral and Sebring that no longer have their original powerplants. have little investment value in the long run. You might find a well-sorted, stock-appearing car that drives great; however, I've seen few of such swaps. Most were cars that suffered "SEDS" (Sudden Engine Death Syndrome) and had their exotic, multi-cammed and carbureted engines replaced with hulks of Detroit iron by owners of limited means. Group two cars need a liberal discount to be considered for purchase, and will Nearly every part on early cars is expensive so you will need to take inventory of what else has been changed. Have the gauges been or smoke its brakes on the drive home, you might want to make an offer somewhere between the price of a project car and a "driver." Your desire for a one-off hybrid may be driven by the price-to-performance ratio. After all, compared to a 289 Cobra at $125,000, a Healey with a built 289 will probably cost less than $20,000 and may offer nearly the same performance. But remember that a nice Tiger or Rivolta will probably cost about the same as a FrankenHealey, and the factorybuilt hot rods will need only a portion of the care and feeding of your average one-off. If you actually fmd a good group two "driver" that looks like it isn't going to catch fire Dear Mr. Kerb: Call me crazy, but I am attracted to the Mercedes 190SL. The prices swapped out? Is the back axle original? You might need brakes, wheels, an axle and even springs. Still, cars in this group are valuable in any condition. You can determine how much the cars are worth when they are correct, and what it will take to make them correct. Your negotiations will be based on those two numbers. My experience is that sellers will give you a discount for the replacement cost of the missing core parts. seem all over the map for these guys. I can guess that the cheap ones are fright pigs and the expensive ones are overpriced. Does this mean the correctly priced ones are somewhere in the middle? If I buy one, will the enthusiasm for the car die out before I have a chance to sell?—RD., via e - mail Dear Mr. D: I could take the bait and call you crazy, but ask anyone who has driven a good 190SL and you can see the appeal. At a time when Brit sports cars accelerated away from a stop with their unsynchronized first gear wailing like a siren, the 190's shift lever slipped into first without a crunch. When the Healey guys bounced and bottomed their rear suspension over the big bumps, the 190's IRS system soaked it up without a rattle. All of this sophistication came at a price, though, making the 190 heavy and not very powerful. I really can't tell you how it would do in a drag race against an MGA but the MG feels faster and it is a 1500/1600-cc car. But raw acceleration is not the point of the 190. It is an open two-seater from a company that doesn't specialize in such things. Competent engineering, but only four cylinders. Sprite that borrowed from the Morris parts bins, the SL used bits from the 180 sedan—a car more than a few yards up the technological road from the humble Morris Minor. Today, 190SLs have a vintage feel, with their drum brakes and almost-too-soft ride quality. But their visual appeal, as the costeffective little brother of the 300SL, along with their inherent build quality, keeps the buyers coming. If you buy a decent car, I don't think you'll get hurt at sell time. It's true that prices on these cars vary, which is fitting as condition is all over the map as well. An encouraging note is that I have actually seen 190SLs sell near the six-digit range, showing that there is a 15 The 190 is brimming with the fit, finish and technical features that are missing on most entry-level sports cars from other manufacturers. This is because this is an entry-level sports car from Mercedes-Benz and, just like the

Dear Mr. Kerb: Jam almost ready to take the plunge and get a race car I notice that Turners seem to be very competitive and their engines look just like the one in my old Sprite. How good are the cars, and are there different models to consider?—AB., via e - mail 1965 AH BJ-8 3000 Mk III, CA car. MGBs, restored, many in stock. Dear Mr. B: Small-bore classes in clubs that have a 1959 model year cut-off for eligibility are often populated by a group of BMCpowered Turners and Lotus Sevens. The Turners are cheaper than the Lotus (you can find race-ready cars for $20,000) and much more aerodynamic, too. So, in spite of being heavier, the Turner turns in better lap times on circuits where there is any kind of a straight. The ingredients that make the Turner a winner are its simple and strong tubular frame, lightweight (and simple to repair) fiberglass bodywork and the BMC "A" Series drivetrain. Generations of tuning have gone into the smallbore BMCs and it is possible to build an 85hp motor that will run all season with oil changes and valve adjusts. There are also closeratio gearboxes and limited-slip differentials available, two things that make any small-bore car easier to drive and a better performer. The Turner's simplicity makes the car appealing to both beginners interested in maximum seat time and seasoned enthusiasts who would rather drive and socialize than work on a broken car. The model you are most likely to see is the 950, with its Cobra-esque eggcrate grille and tail treatment similar to a Daimler Dart. After 1959, the bodywork was changed and fitted with a wider, flatter grille. This basic body lived on through several other models; the first were BMC-powered and later the English Ford Anglia and Cortina engines were fitted. This means that the newer cars are going to be quicker, but don't forget that the car, if legal in your local club, will be classed with cars of similar performance. As a beginner, it might be more comfortable to start with a 950. You can always sell it to another entry-level enthusiast when you decide to move up.

Kt ER Chassis number: 0148A errari S/N 0148A is part of a very aristocratic lineage of Ferraris, as it is equipped with the famous Lampredi V12, which would go on to contribute to Ferrari's first victories in Fl in its 375 Fl version. In the 340 version, the 4101-cc engine develops 260 hp at 6500 rpm. It was a legendary motor that was several steps above the standard 250 production unit and went on to spawn its elder siblings, the 375 MM and 410 Sport, of fearsome reputation for their power. This notoriety is reflected in both the type's rarity and also the famous owners that were destined to enjoy the 340 America series. F This car, bodied by Ghia, was first built for Michel Paul Cavalier, president of a large French industrial concern. The distinguished Monsieur Cavalier became one of Ferrari's first repeat customers—and thus a precious one—as well as a friend. While little is known about him, he became perhaps the only non-Italian member of the early Ferrari board, and it is believed that his industrial savvy was most useful as the factory's growth mushroomed amidst the hectic demands of competition and Maranello's engineering development. Cavalier owned several very special Ferraris through the years, cars that were tailor-made for him, and it is a measure of his lore in Ferrari history that these cars are now to be found in several of the finest collections. S/N 0148A remained in France after Cavalier sold it to a watch merchant, who in turn passed it on to Michael Dovaz. The latter has a rather infamous private museum in Nemours, France, where it stayed for a number of years before passing on to a Parisian doctor and then a Dutchman. The current owner bought this car and then subjected it to a frame-off restoration. This was undertaken in Italy by Zagato with the aid of Galbiati, who specializes in aluminum bodies a definite plus since S/N 0148A is believed to be the only alloy-bodied car in this small series. The engine, which was already in running order, was rebuilt by Michel Magnin.

Interestingly enough, the selling price at Christie's was almost exactly mid-way between the $350k-$450k estimate. While very nicely restored, and looking very racy, $391k is all the money for a car that looks faster than it actually is. S/1V 0148A is not a race car It does have an evennumbered chassis, as do most of the early Ferrari race cars. But all Lampredi-engined V12s, as this one is, carry even chassis numbers, whether they were competition cars or boulevard cruisers. This is just another anomaly in the Ferrari chassis numbering sequence. Ferrari Club of America, Box 720597, Atlanta, GA 30358; Ferrari Owner's Club, 8642 Cleta St., Downey, CA 90241 vvww.ferrariclubofamerica.org ; www.FerrariOwnersClub.org Maserati A6G2000 Zagato coupe, Fiat 8V Zagato  The 340 was painted in a dark blue, while the interior has fully redone leather seats in a lighter shade of blue with matching carpets. All chrome elements have been impeccably renewed. The car has since taken part in the 1999 Mille Miglia, where it was driven by French connoisseur Marc Souvrain for its current owner. Historic Ferraris do not come with a much better pedigree than this, and S/N 0148A would make a great road/rally machine or a very prominent concours entry. This car soldfor $391,000, including buyer 's premium, at the Christie 's Pebble Beach sale, August 19, 2001. This 340 has been on the market for some time. Last year, the Parisian owner had been asking for about $600k On December 18, 2000, it was offered at the Poulain Le Fur auction in Paris, where it was supposedly bid 1 8  Driver's side, behind front crossmember, stamped on chassis Middle of block between cylinder heads $5,000 $800 The Ghia body, regarded as visually-challenged by some, has been improved (or is that customized?) by having its heavy-looking bumpers removed, one-inch wider Borrani wheels fitted at the rear a boy-racer quick-filler fuel cap added, lightweight competition seats installed and side and hood scoops added. Think 340 America modified to race in "The Fast and the Furious." The restoration of S/N 0148A was done to a visually stunning standard, although I could have done without the overly generous application of silver paint to its aluminum underhood mechanical components. Thanks to its alloy body, even chassis number (even i f not competition sourced) and its robust, torquey 340 engine, this car will provide its owner with more than adequate performance, decent comfort and entry into everythingfrom the Mille Miglia to the Tour de France and Monterey Historics. The previous owner paid about $400k for this car unrestored We can assume that the restoration cost another $200k, making the seller 's "investment" around $600k, coincidentally the same as the original asking price for the can As the new owner paid just $400k but got a restored car instead of a project, this car should be considered well bought.—Michael Sheehan (Historic data and photo courtesy of auction company.)• Sports Car Market arket Review Buyer's Guide 1951 Ferrari 340 America Berlinetta

Sheehan Speaks by Michael Sheehan 1:10 The Modenas Are Falling! araphrasing Oscar Hammerstein II from "Showboat," "Fish gotta swim, birds gotta fly, and I'm gonna watch new Ferraris depreciate till I die." One of the extraordinary things about the "instant collectible" market is its predictability. Over the past few decades, we have watched Plymouth Prowlers, Ferrari Testarossas, Dodge Vipers and 328s run up the slope of inflated values, then free-fall off the cliff towards "just a car" pricing. This month, we'lltake a brief look at the market conditions for "gold chain cars," specifically 360 Modena Spyders. Next month, we'll visit the world ofbluechip collectible Ferraris, where important cars continue to bring strong prices. Comparing a250 SWB or even a Daytona to a 360 Spyder is uninformative at best and ludicrous at worst. All serial-production Ferraris built after 1990 are still depreciating except for the limited-production F40 and F50, which have gone up in value. Consider that 16 years after 308 QV production stopped, they are now fully depreciated. Ferrari 328s have a little farther to fall, and 360 Spyders are going to be worth less every year until 2017 (roughly). By then, they will be as ancient as a current 308 and their performance will pale when compared to the latest, greatest iteration from Ferrari 16 years from now. The current slowdown of the economy has caused the pages of Ferrari Market Letter to be inundated with ads for latemodel Ferraris. This is an easily predicted market correction. When first introduced in April, MSRP for a new 360 Spyder was $180k. The first few out the door sold on the secondary market for $375k, a premium of almost $200k. Within a month, the richest and least patient kids on the block had one parked in their (probably marble-surfaced) driveway, so supply increased and prices went down to $350k. Now that several hundred have been delivered to the US, these cars have steadily dropped in price at a rate of about $20k a month, and are now down to about $260k. While this may be a substantial decline, it was to be expected as more cars came on the market. And, after all, it's still $80k over window sticker for what is just a used car. I wouldn't be surprised to see them trading at MSRP within three months. If you're trying to sell a contract on a yetto-be-delivered 360 for $100k over sticker, or expect to get your money back on a car you paid $300k for, I suggest you get in line behind the whiners who bought 3Com stock last year and are demanding that their brokers get them their purchase price back. From my perspective as a trader, I expect a continued, precipitous decline in the over-inflated prices of late-model Ferraris. After all, remember when 1989 328s were $125,000 cars and Testarossas from the same year were bringing $250,000 and more? At the same time, I find no lack of demand for unusual, rare older cars. Interest rates are low and, for those in segments of the economy relatively unaffected by the current events, now is a good time to buy. I'll discuss this in detail, with documented transactions, next month.• Your Best Way to Lease the Best • Custom-Tailored Leases • From 24 to 60 Months • Equity Transfers • Early-Termination Rebates • Business & Individual • Coast-to-Coast Service • Dealer Inquiries Welcome • Lease to Own PUTNAM FINE AUTOMOBILE LEASING NEW/PRE-OWNED/EXOTIC/COLLECTIBLES SINCE 1983 SOLE AUTHORIZED LEASINGAGENT FOR BARRETT-JACKSON & CAVALLINO CLASSIC Greenwich, CT 800.278.0071 Please Visit  PutnamLeasing.com  Scottsdale, AZ _} 888.995.5800

1-41 Chassis number: C80-1902 Engine number: 12547 IF resh thinking in road-car design and success in both racing and rallying are the hallmarks of Lancia, which has always been known for innovative and advanced designs. By the 1950s the company was fully involved in motorsport, with Lancia winning the great Targa Florio, the Carrera Panamericana, the Liege-RomeLiege and the Mille Miglia. The road cars were stylish, and in the case of the Appia, which was the mainstay of the company's fortunes, they were sensibly priced. The concept was correct from the start: a well-engineered 904-cc V4 engine that suited the punitive Italian vehicle tax system. With the Series II Appia, the engine volume increased to 1,090 cc and discerning buyers could even choose special bodied versions from the likes of Pininfarina, Zagato and Vignale. Among the options were the commercial variants, ranging from little pickups to vans such as this Series II Furgoncino. Made for zipping around narrow streets or crossing country roads, only about 2,850 were built between 1954 and 1959, and almost all were exclusively sold in their home country. This vanette was beautifully restored in Switzerland to a very high standard and is presented in complete and correct condition with two-tone gray paintwork. Virtually new and used sparingly since its ground-up restoration, it would be the perfect advertising or support vehicle for any business. While more modest than some of the mid-1950s race car transporters, it is absolutely charming and would be welcomed at period revival meetings. This Lancia Appia Furgoncino was offered at no reserve and was sold for $33,487, including buyer 's premium, at the Christie 's' Pebble Beach sale, August 19, 2001. Numbers produced  Original list price:  Years produced  Tune-up/major service  Distributor cap  Chassis #  Engine #  Club  In today's automotive history class, dear SCM readers, we will try to teach afew things that should be obvious to collectors, but sometimes get lost in the emotional mix that accompanies buying and selling. Lesson #1. You can find a vehicle that may be considered common and mundane, move it, and discover that even the most avid, rabid enthusiast in another corner of the globe may have never seen it. Our case study, this Lancia Appia Furgoncino, was the ambulance, shoe cobbler's truck or postal transport in Italy. While everybody who lived in Italy in the 1950s and '60s is as familiar with these things as Americans are with Chevy pickups, no one in Monterey, not even the most ardent Lancia fanatic, seemed to have ever seen one—let alone one that was beautifully restored Alternatives  Web site  ID plate in engine compartment Side of block Daly City, CA 94015-2125, 415/992-1486 www.lanciamotorclub.co.uk American Lancia Club, 496 El Dorado Drive, Morris Minor panel van, Austin Morris Countryman All this bidder interest translated into gasps of "It sold for how much?" Refer to the Fiat Jolly that Christie 's sold for $39,100 at Pebble Beach in 1999 (November 1999, page 31) for a similar response. Lesson #2. You can't always believe what sellers tell you. I purchased this Appia in Geneva to use as a Vespa-hauler for a scooter business. (As a sidebar, I found it on eBay and was the only bidder). I've decided that the Swiss don't measure things very well (except perhops cash), or at least the yodeler who owned this Lancia didn't. He guaranteed a Vespa would fit inside nicely. Well, maybe a disassembled one would The van arrived in Boston, promptlyfailed the Vespa fit test and was consigned to the Christie sale to find a new home. Lesson #3. Condition, condition and condition. The former owner of the Lancia spent more than $55,000 restoring it. Add in the cost of the van itself and the new owner (a long-time SCM subscriber; Midwest Ferrari dealer and great classic enthusiast) got the car for halfprice. Further, he didn't have to suffer through the agonies of a $2,450 (1956 Appia Sedan US POE) $350 $55 1954-59 2,850 restoration. As we've said many times before in SCM, the smartest way to buy something is to let someone else sweat the restoration. In conclusion, students of collecting, cute icon cars like the Fiat Jolly, Austin Mini Cooper, Nash Metropolitan, Morris Minor and Lancia Appia Vanettes will always attract disproportionate attention and interest at auc- Some 45 years after its original manufacturing, with most of its siblings now in a scrap yard in Bologna, this vehicle was one of the most talkedabout cars of the Monterey weekend It created a buzz that had affluent bidders clustering about the car and chattering about how good it would look parked in their pits at Goodwood or Laguna Seca. Compared to this Furgoncino, Daytonas were a dime a dozen, and 356s as common as VW Beetles. December, 2001 tion ([they are well-restored and beautifully presented Surrounded by muscle cars and racing Maseratis, the cute cars take on a unique appeal all their own. I'd argue that this vehicle was as popular among bidders as any Ferrari, Porsche or Bentley during the historic weekend This car is a perfect example of an area in which a "land" auction will always trump an on-line one. At a live auction, the auction company can bring together an interesting array of cars, hopefully fine-tuned to make each standout. With an on-line auction, you have to wade through a morass of thousands of listings to find what you want. Under the Christie 's tent, my Lancia van stood tall, and the bidding rose to a commensurate level.—Steve Serio (Historic data and photo courtesy of auction company.)• 21 Etceterini & Friends Market Place 1956 Lancia Appia Series II Vanette

411) A Chassis number: 64251 Engine number: 924866 lfa's 1934 6C model was conceived as a natural development of the successful 6C 1500 and 6C 1750 series, and set the pattern for post-war Alfas. With dual overhead camshafts and a 70 x 100-mm bore and stroke, Jano's final design of a production Alfa Romeo was robust: an engine with seven main bearings and a stiff, boxed-chassis frame. Though designed and built with costs in mind, it carried on the sporting traditions of the Milanese marque. The success of the 6C 2300 models was demonstrated in 1938 when Pintacuda and Giuseppe Farina fmished first and second in the Mine Miglia, just one leading example of many highly successful competition outings in the season. In 1939 the factory increased the cylin- 4 - der bore to 72 mm, creating the 2443-cc 6C 2500. With an improved cylinder head for better breathing and compression ratio increased from 6.75:1 to 7:1, output rose from 87 bhp to 95 bhp in the Sport version, with a single-throat Weber carburetor, and up to 105 bhp in the Super Sport version, which sported three Weber carburetors. In 1948 Alfa developed the 6C 2500 Competizione, of which only three were built. One of these cars had a more advanced chassis, developed and manufactured by Gilco Milano. Behind the company name of Gilco was the full name of Gilberto Colombo, who designed and manufactured racing Ferrari and Maserati chassis in the 1950s. In 1950 Alfetta gave the order for chassis 64251 to Gilco to build a special frame to accommodate the 6C running gear. Meanwhile, on the motor racing competition front, 1950 was an unforgettable season for the Alfa Romeo team, which entered the newly designed type 158 in 11 Grand Prix and won them all, Fangio winning six and Farina five. In 1951 Fangio went on to win the first of his five world championship titles. As a result of this achievement, at the end of the season Alfa Romeo had the Gilco Tubolare chassis rebodied by Ghia and, after displaying it at a concows in Milano, gifted it to Juan Manuel Fangio as a present in recognition of winning the world championship. At some later stage Fangio decided to sell the Years produced  Number produced  Original list price  SCM Price Guide  Tune-up/major service  Distributor cap  Chassis #  Engine #  Club  Alternatives  '2__ ANONIMA LOMBAROA FABBRICA AUTOMOBILI rip° U  Market Review at Buyer's Guide MILANO WWI N 1950 Alfa 6C 2500 Competizione wallet: Jano-derived, racing heritage, one-of-a-kind competition version, special tubular chassis, custom body, ex-Fangio and—here's the clincher—a real barn find. Worth $220,000 to $260,000, asserts the auction company (in spite of the fact that SCM's own Price Guide tops out around $175,000). Bidding stopped at $160,000 at Christie's Pebble Beach sale, August 19, 2001, and the car drove off a no-sale. Of all coach-built Alfa Romeos, the 6C2500 is the least sporting Alfa, even when dubbed "Competizione."

Years afterward it was discovered in an tmrestored condition in a collection of Ferraris. Between 1995 and 1997 the car underwent a very thorough restoration, taking some 5,800 hours, which was fully documented and photographed. It has since won many concours prizes, most recently winning its class at the famous Villa d'Este Concours this year against stiff competition, and taking second prize overall. This is an opportunity to acquire a magnificent and elegant sports car with a thoroughbred race car chassis, eligible for many of the international concours d'elegance and longdistance touring events around the world.

But 1 have looked in vain in Fusi, Tabucchi and Anselmi for a reference to a 6C 2500 engine number beginning with 924. The same goes for this car 's chassis number The "gift from Alfa" account is well known, but it was a 1900 coupe from the early 1950s that was Alfa's gift to Fangio, who has placed his signature on that car 's firewall. Finally, the mention ofColombo in relation to an Alfa suggests Gioacchino Colombo, who went on to do great things for Ferrari. The Colombo in this instance, however, is Gilberto, no relation to Gioacchino, and references to Gilberto's further successes with Ferrari and Maserati are, to say the least, sparse. Further, Gilco seems to have built frames only for the Ferrari 125, according to the official Ferrari 50th Anniversary book Hopefully, the claims ofex-Fangio and ex-Gilcofor this 6C are fully documented in the papers that accompany the car Suspicions aside, this is still an attractive 6C 2500. Its body is a refreshing departure ftom the frequently seen Pininfarina style, and hints at the tighter lines of the 1900 series that followed That it was a no-sale only underscores the fact that the 6C 2500 is a slow mover in more ways than one.—Pat Braden (Historic data and photo courtesy of auction company)• 25

A 1973-74 Volkswagen Type 181 Thing fter the success ofthe Volkswagen Beetle in the 1960s, VW resurrected the idea of an on- and offroad car, and called it the Type 181 "Thing." Inspired by the WWII Type 82 Ktibelwagen, the Thing was updated with the Beetle baseline engine and running gear, but with the beefier Transporter/Microbus suspension. Also along the lines of the Kiibelwagen was its Dumpsteresqueyet practical—styling. The simple doors and standard soft top could easily be removed, and the windshield folded flat. The rearengined, rear-wheel drive car was rugged, and well-suited for unimproved roads. Pumpkin Orange. fered in the US until 1973. Power was the standard Beetle 1584-cc air-cooled flat four-cylinder engine, with 46 chirping horsepower, coupled to a four-speed manual transmission. In its initial year in the US, exterior colors available were Blizzard White, Sunshine Yellow and In 1974, the Thing got a slight boost in power to 55 bhp (easily differentiated from the 46-bhp version by the side scoops instead of flush slotted vents in the rear quarter panels). The most desirable trim package was called the "Acapulco," and featured a bikini top and blue-and-white striped vinyl seats. The option list included a fiberglass hard top with solid door windows, luggage racks, air conditioning and a padded roll cage. Styling by Dumps ter First built in 1969, the Thing wasn't of- US sales were discontinued after 1974, while sales in Mexico continued until 1978. The Thing has a small but faithful legion of followers. Panels for the unibody seem to be the most difficult parts to track down, although rustkubels are rare. Poor insulation, which led to snow-country interior temperatures reminiscent of the Shackleton expedition's igloos, kept many of them off salty winter roads. A definitive plus for the vehicle is its extreme commonality of functional parts with pillIME( Mystery Photo ANSWERS  used in promoting the movie "Stroker Ace" with Burt Reynolds and Lonnie Anderson.

Harlan Sanders Signature Edition Eldorado. Flattened wheel arches help much needed the Beetle. It also shares with its air-cooled cousin reliability and ease of repair, part and parcel of being a stepchild of one of the bestselling cars ever built. In the Southwestern states, one can pretty much do an engine rebuild simply by walking along the side of any road for about 10 miles and gathering parts. The New Beetle craze only slightly affected Thing prices. Instead, interest in various oddball cars of the '70s (Gremlins, Pacers, etc.) has bolstered Thing pricing. Good Things can be had in the range of $2,600-$4,800. As a gauge of the lower end of the market, a nonrunning #4 1974 Thing with hard top (but no title) recently sold at a Midwest estate auction for $1,600. Pricing may move up somewhat in the foreseeable future, but not by much. Regardless, in an era of $25,000 Fiat Jollys, the Thing represents the best way to cruise the beach on a budget.—B.

Object: 1936 Vanderbilt Cup Poster by Peter Helk—Lot #456 Auction: Automobilia Auctions, Inc., Wethersfield, CT, Oct. 27, 2001 Estimate: $3,000-$4,000 Sale price: $4,620, including buyer's premium utomobilia Auctions, under the stewardship of SCM's Auction Editor David Brownell and Bentley enthusiast Jerry Lettieri, conducted their eighth annual no-reserve, no-nonsense event on October 27. The positive results underline that there is an unquenchable desire for quality automotive-related collectibles. When presented properly, the dollars will flow, regardless of which way the economy twists and turns. The majority of the 532 lots came from a single collection and included more than 100 pieces of very desirable automotive literature. A few pieces were from as early as 1910—a Lozier catalog brought $440 and a Pierce four-cylinder motorcycle catalog sold for $605. There were a number of sales brochures from the classic era, the highlight being a late 1920s Barker coachwork catalog that featured their body styles for 20 Rolls-Royce models. The very elaborate piece had gold stamped leather covers and more than doubled the high estimate of $850 by selling for $2,035. A single digit (#4) 1940 Connecticut motorcycle license plate sold for a very strong $1,265, especially when compared to the 1937 #9 motorcycle plate, also from Connecticut, that was offered last year and sold for $1,045. The bargain of the sale was an attractive 1936 BMW motorcycle poster that had a pre-sale estimate of $1,500-$2,000, but sold for just $750. The auction highlight was a large (42 x 29 inches) poster created by Peter Helk for the 1936 Vanderbilt Cup race, which was held at the newly completed Roosevelt Raceway on Long Island, October 12, 1936. This poster was signed by Helk. Race went broke, the poster lives on. Although the Vanderbilt Cup races hold a mythical place in American racing history, they were only conducted for two years. The design of the course did not lend itself to the high speeds that were necessary to attract paying crowds. In fact, the qualifying speeds were so slow that the first race, originally scheduled for 400 miles, was reduced to 300 miles so that the event would not take seven hours. Europeans dominated both races as American cars were designed for oval tracks and did not have the braking capabilities needed for European-style road courses. The financial projections were also unrealistic and, as a result, several of the principals in the Raceway—including Eddie Rickenbacker and George Vanderbilt—resigned. The track quickly fell into disrepair and was later developed as a shopping center. The George Vanderbilt Cup race had a short tenure but the gigantic trophy—recently offered on an Internet auction with a required opening bid of $250,000 (June 2001, "eWatch," page 76)—and the dramatic posters that Peter Helk created for the race continue to appeal to collectors of early racing memorabilia. Compared to the asking price for the Cup, $4,620 for the signed poster could be called a financially prudent investment. •

However, this issue really stretches our definition of collectible. While the Hershey Auction's Rennlimousine would fit nicely into any collection, the collection of dreck at the LeMay auction is truly repellent, even to us hopeless dreamers who view every parts car as a restoration-in-waiting. Nonetheless, all of these hopeless heaps elicited bids and have gone off to garages somewhere. The spirit of the new owners reflects an important part of the collector car market, those enthusiasts whose only chance at having the cars of their dreams is through sweatequity. We sometimes focus too much on the ultra-wealthy, who flip Ferrari 250 LMs to one another while orchestrating mergers and IPOs on their GSM-compatible cellphones. In fact, most of the collector car market is made of gearheads who have a project car sitting in their garage, taking up space that could really best be used by another refrigerator or new washer-dryer combo, according to more than a few long-suffering significant others. We therefore dedicate these auction reports to the hobbyist restorers and to their aspirations as they begin to resurrect these hulks. For them, the auctions ofjunky cars we relate here were an unmatched treasure trove of potential.—ED.

First, the legendary Hershey rainstorms never came—just a light shower one evening instead of the usual instant mudfields from seemingly perpetual cloudbursts. Second, the events of September 11th changed the soldout status of motels and hotels for miles around, and some rooms were empty for the first time in recent memory. Third, and of great importance to the collector car community, the one auction that was held was a very successful event. Don Williams commented, "Someone had to go first. It happened to be us. We thought about canceling, but going on with the auction made the kind of positive, back-to-normal statement that we felt was important." The Hershey Auction is a first for Don Williams and Richie Clyne. After years of holding an Expo sale at the Hershey Lodge, agreement has been reached with the Antique Automobile Club of America to hold an auction at Hershey under the umbrella of the AACA Museum. The no-reserve auction, limited to just 62 cars, was a success in every way. One could almost feel the collective sigh of relief throughout the room as the sale began. In a market looking for direction after the events of September 11th, this sale demonstrated that there were still buyers for merchandise at all price ranges, and that they were willing to pay retail and more for the right cars. Notable sales included a 1936 Mercedes 500K Cabriolet C that went for $253,000 and a fine Adler "Rennlimousine" coupe that sold for just $176,000, a fraction of its former asking price. Very good paint. Smokes like all Minervas are designed to do, with factory sleeve-valve motors. Cond: 3+. SOLD AT $86,900. Not a big audience for these cars in the US.

That's exactly $60 a car, or about what it costs to fill up a Suburban these days (if you don't have the optional oversize tank). Collection owner Harold LeMay was a fixture in the collector car market for 25 years. Before he passed away in November, 2000, he built up a collection of vehicles that's been called "one of the most significant examples of American car history," by Molly Carsten, the curator of the Museum of Transportation in St. Louis, Missouri. The LeMay collection is officially the world's largest private auto collection, according to the Guinness Book of Records, at 2,464 vehicles. However, LeMay had title to more than 6,000 vehicles at the time of his death. The 2,464 vehicles are just the ones of museum quality, according to grandson Eric LeMay. Sports Car Market was at this sale because we intend to follow the evolution and dispersal of the LeMay collection from start until finish. One purpose of this auction was to raise money for a museum the family is hoping to build, with the cooperation of the city of Tacoma. The other purpose was to allow collectors an opportunity to acquire project cars and trucks, or simply parts vehicles. If you wanted documentation for a project car, you had to work for it. "We told people, if you want a title, locate a VIN and we'll make you one," said Roger Frye, general manager for Silver Auctions. A crowd of about 40 people, including salvage yard owners as well as private parties, walked behind Mitch Silver through a yard not far from LeMay, Inc., the refuse company where Harold LeMay created his wealth.

But Sotheby's went on with their Chicago sale as planned. "We believe we made the right decision to proceed with the sale," said Larry Sirolli, managing director of Sotheby's Chicago. "We were somewhat disappointed with the results in the end." All the correct hardware fitted, including speedometer and Smiths clock. Has won several concours from 1997-99. Cond: 1. SOLD AT $32,950.

Unrestored American bikes from the teens still in original condition bring top dollar. #300 1928 INDIAN FOUR Motorcycle. S/N DA 385. Red. Odo: 168 miles. 3-speed transmission. Gorgeous, top-flight restoration. - The company's third annual fall motorcycle and bicycle auction in Chicago was bolstered by the collection of Charlie Stahl (Harley Charlie), which included both memorabilia and actual motorcycles. It included more than 20 lots of signs, banners, clocks and parts from his dealership. (See Motobilia, November 2001, page 77.) The prices of the top ten motorcycle lots sold ranged from $126,750 to $26,625. Eight of these were domestic machines. Sirolli noted that classic American-made bikes tended to bring the highest prices, as they did last year. "European bikes are a little eccentric for most American collectors," he said. "Brands like Munch and MS are not everyday words for them." tank, early swingartn chassis. Looked good mechanically, not over-restored. Estimated at $7,500-$9,500. Cond: 2. SOLD AT $6,600. Still valued in their home country, Royal Enfields are unappreciated in the States. Although below the low estimate, this was really all the money. #372 - Motorcycle. S/N VM4084. Black. Odo: 2,750 miles. Nice looking and well restored to "rider" condition. Fitted with some components from high-performance Thruxton model, such as seat, gas tank and oil tank. Modem Japanese Milcuni carburetor. Cond: 2. SOLD AT $7,200. Owner apparently got tired of fooling with Walneck's Classic Cycle Trader magazine, found no takers for his Roadog, a 16-foot long, 3,280-pound monster hand-built in the 1960s, which did not meet its low estimate of $28,000. Sotheby's is undecided about the future of its annual motorcycle sale. If held, both Chicago and New York City are being considered as venues. SCM urges Sotheby's to give it another go, as it would have been impossible for any event to ring up sterling results on the September 15th weekend. Further, motorcycle enthusiasts of means deserve an event of this level, with its first-rate presentation, to buy and sell at the absolute top end of the market. Too often, motorcycles are presented as unwanted step-children at collector car auctions, and their prices suffer accordingly. Sotheby's has been the champion of the motorcycle collector/connoisseur, and we hope they continue.—Bill Neill Few ofthe high-dollar foreign-made lots sold, including a Brough SS100, Munch Mammut, and MV Agusta.

A few scratches on onhams & Brooks's annual auction at the Beaulieu Autojumble attracted the usual cross-section of the good, the bad and the restorable. This auction has always offered project cars rather than 100point investment-mobiles. So, if this report contains more than the usual share of fright pigs, don't be surprised. That's part of the fun of the Beaulieu Autojumble sale and has made for some bargains over the years. lit front brake.

Showed low mileage. Cond: 1-. SOLD AT $6,000. Price was a bargain, although this is a Sportster model no one really cares about. The auction also had its fair share ofrebodied and "cut 'n' shut" specials on various British chassis, along with some oddball delivery trucks and vans. There was a good selection of 3.4 and 3.8 Jaguar "Inspector Morse" saloons on offer, along with not one but two GordonKeeble coupes—English-built fiberglass GTs that used Chevy 327 V8 engines for the necessary poke. Blindingly fast, they're also very scarce even in their native country. Besides the Cord, the American car attracting the most attention was a well-restored 1959 Ford Skyliner. It brought a bit over $25,000 for top bid, and that would have to be considered quite a fair buy on either side of the big pond. Bonhams & Brooks managing director Malcolm Barber did his usual smooth, quick and professional calling of the auction. First he disposed of nearly 600 lots of automobilia before tackling the cars, nearly 80% of which were driven, trailered or dragged off to new garages by the end of the day.—D.B.

The SL Experience Editor: John Olson Publisher: John R. Olson, Inc. Phone: 612/377-0155 Size: 9 x 6 inches hardbound. 364 pages. Price: $65 Rating: SL enthusiasts AAAA Casual enthusiasts -`c .A Although not a technical reference guide, this book is a handy resource for anyone purchasing or who already owns any of the six generations of SLs. The book is an outgrowth and update of John Olson's previous effort, Collecting the MercedesBenz SL, written in 1990. Both cover Olson's view of what makes a car col- lectible, the factors that affect value and whether a car is a milestone or a millstone. The opinionated assessments make for interesting reading, whether you agree with them or not. There is a section on each generation of SL, beginning with the 1954 300SL and concluding with the SLK, introduced in 1997. A brief chapter covers the various horsepower ratings used throughout the years, although torque statistics, so important when considering the drivability of a car, are lacking. There are chapters devoted to factory colors and available options for each model. While hundreds of colors are listed, they are in numerical order, without any description of the differences between the various shades. For instance, how does one tell the difference between Red (No. 538), Mercedes Red (No. 526) and Fire Engine Red (No. 534), all available on the 300SL Roadsters? Another section covers things to do with your SL, including topics as diverse as packing your SL, vintage racing, entry in modern events such as the Carrera Panamericana, the Colorado Grand, and racing at Lime Rock and Laguna Seca. The final section covers art, models and the people "to know" in the SL world. The book has both vintage ads, which I always enjoy, and current advertising as well. Although I found the current ads a bit distracting, the SL enthusiast may find them of some value. Any Mercedes SL is an interesting car. This book will help you select the right model and determine how to best enjoy these high quality post-war roadsters.—Jim Schrager 54  Bugatti: Le Pur-Sang des Automobiles Author: Hugh Conway Publisher: Haynes Phone: 805/498-6703 Size: 8% x 11 inches hardbound. 432 pages. Price: $75 Rating: Bugatti owners Casual enthusiasts -A* -;:e.A This is the fifth edition of the standard work on Bugatti, covering all the Bugattis produced in Molsheim, France, between 1910 and 1956. Most readers will focus on the great Bugattis, from the four-cylinder Type 13 car of 1910 to the Type 57 passenger series that ended regular production in 1939. However, the postWWII Bugattis are also covered in detail, including the Type 101 passenger car and the Type 251 single-seat racer. Ettore Bugatti built a stunning variety of models, from the gigantic 12.8-liter Royale down to a child's electric Bugatti. In addition, he also designed boats, trains and even a steam engine. Bugatti preferred machine work to casting, and his engines are a series of geometric shapes, marked by sharp corners and highly finished surfaces. In this book, each model receives its own chapter, complete with technical analyses and contemporary driver reports. The original manuscript first appeared in 1963 as a collaboration between Hugh Conway and C.W.P. Hampton, the editor of the British Bugantics. It was a time when Bugatti parts were easily accessible, and many of the beautiful photographs of engines and assemblies in this book would be virtually impossible to obtain today. Over the previous four editions, the original manuscript has remained largely intact, but the book has gained more technical and historic detail through the addition of appendices. These include a list of model specifications, chassis and engine numbers, a record of racing successes, a biography of Bugatti, and several articles from Bugantics and the Bulletin of the Vintage Sports Car Club. Between the two world wars, Bugatti and Alfa Romeo were direct competitors. Today, Bugattis are so rare that they have become much less well known. This book is a valuable resource for any student of automotive history.—Pat Braden Mustang 5.0: Technical Reference at Performance Handbook Author: Al Kirschenbaum Publisher: Bentley Publishers Phone: 800/423-4595 Size: 8 x 10'/2 inches paperbound 442 pages. Price: $34.95 Rating: 'Stang people AA *A Casual enthusiasts A How time passes. It's hard to imagine; Mustangs built from 1979 to 1993 now have their own following, and some are even achieving collectible status. Unlike the recently deceased Camaro, which puffed out marshmallow-like in 1970Y2 and never regained its lithe shape, the Ford Mustang survived the debacle of the Mustang II to reemerge as a sporty car in 1979. The convertible, dis- continued in 1974, returned in 1983. Performance was revived when Ford installed a 210horsepower V8 in the 1985 Mustang. Slowly, the Mustang's performance image returned. There are hundreds of thousands of '80sera Mustangs still serving as daily drivers. While there were far too many built for them ever to be considered a first-tier collectible, some heavily optioned models, especially convertibles, are becoming hard to find. The book calls itself a guide to "researching, rebuilding, restoring and upgrading" Mustangs from 1979 to '93. This aptly describes its function. It even carries a Ford Racing part number. Kirschenbaum's book helps you decide how to select a model and determine what equipment is authentic to it. At 442 pages, this bulky paperback gives a detailed account of the changes made from one model year to another—engine, brakes, suspension and so on. Kirschenbaum has been an editor at Car Craft and Hot Rod magazines. His book is loaded with specifications and provides helpful advice about performance modifications. For example, only the 1986 5-liter Mustang received EA6E cylinder heads, with revised paths for the intake valve flow and repositioned spark plugs. If you install one of these heads on another 5-liter V8, or bolt a head from another V8 onto this engine block, valves and pistons may be exchanging expensive smooches. If you're serious about collecting, working on or modifying an '80s era Mustang, this is well worth the $35 cover price.—Bill Neill• Sports Car Market

From Grand Classics to Twin Stripes of Smoking Rubber 1953 Buick Roadmaster Estate Wagon uick marked their 50th anniversary in 1953. With V8 engines gaining popularity, it was quite natural that Buick would celebrate its golden anniversary by introducing a modem overhead-valve V8. Remarkably, in addition to the first Buick V8 engine and the first use of a 12-volt electrical system, the 1953 Buick Estate Wagon was the very last woody station wagon offered by an American automobile manufacturer. These factors, combined with Buick's beautiful styling, make this one ofthe most desirable and sought-after woody station wagons ever produced. In 1953, Buick offered two models of Estate Wagons: the Super and the Roadmaster. The two cars are easily distinguished from each other, as the Super has three portholes on each front fender while the Roadmaster has four portholes. The production numbers for the 1953 Buick Estate Wagons were only 1,830 Supers and a minuscule 670 Roadmasters. There are thought to be approximately 15 Roadmaster Estate Wagons left in the world today. The stunning example offered here was originally a California car that was put into storage in the 1970s, showing approximately 58,000 miles on the odometer. A meticulous, no-expense-spared restoration to the highest standards was just completed on the car. During this 2'/2year restoration virtually everything that could be done was attended to, including one of the most important aspects of a woody restoration—the wood! II Ron Heiden, one of America's foremost automotive woodworkers, carefully selected the very best pieces of white ash available "in the rough." Using the old original pieces of wood as patterns, he very carefully handcrafted each new piece of wood to create a fit and finish second to none. Once Mr. Heiden achieved a precision fit of the wood on the car, each piece was carefully removed for the very important varnishing process. The wood was then carefully refitted onto the car for the final finishing process. The engine, transmission and rear end were all completely rebuilt. Mark Stevens, one ofArizona's premier body and paint specialists, disassembled the car. He then carefully reworked each individual panel, as required, before applying five coats of black acrylic enamel. Mr. Stevens reassembled the car, keeping as close to factory specifications as possible. Striving for perfection, he logged more than five hundred hours in completing his portion of the restoration.

This automobile was given the maximum attention to detail throughout its restoration with one specific goal in mind—to recreate the most beautiful and correct 1953 Buick Roadmaster Estate Wagon in existence. The result is simply stunning and it is difficult to find faults anywhere on the car. The standard of restoration is a credit to all those involved.

I owned an original, low-mileage 53 Buick (a Super sedan) at one time and, from my recollections of details on that can this woody was as right as any Buick to ever leave Flint—or the Ionia Body Company where the wagons were built. The senior series 53 Buicks were an attractive combination of old and new. The all-coil suspension and torque-tube drive harked back to the '30s and one tire-screeching, rocker-scraping ride through a few hard curves would quickly convince you that roadability was not one of their strong points. The new 188-bhp V8 engine, however, was of a superior design with its "nailhead" valve/combustion chamber arrangement, while the refined Dynaflow transmission made shifting utterly seamless. The updated styling, inspired by the XP-300 dream car, was just modern enough to attract new buyers while retaining Buick's traditional crowd of conservative loyalists. 1953 670 Stamped on left side of block Driver's door post approx. $250 $30 $3,254 Buick Club of America, P.O.

As gorgeous as this car was, though, did the new owner pay too much? In terms of what the restoration likely cost, probably not. In terms of market value, however; it has to be hoped that the reason it was bought for this figure was because that's simply what happened when two determined bidders were after the best example in the world, rather than the financial return. Does that make all the remaining '53 Roadmaster wagons worth $140,000-$160,000, or even close? Not a chance. First, to my knowledge, there are no other Roadmaster wagons restored to this level of perfection.

The Monthly Digest of Magnificent Motor Cars AC • Aston Martin • Austin-Healey • Bentley • Rolls-Royce • Jaguar • Lotus • MG • Triumph ENGLISH Chassis number: X-103 Registration: JB5568 T he "Missing Squire," S/N X-103, was the second of seven cars built by the fledgling Squire Car Manufacturing Company in 1935 and was purchased by one of the company founders, G.F.A. "Jock" Manby-Colegrave. While the other six ofthe original Squires were known, the whereabouts of X-103 haven't been so certain for the last 25 years. X-103 passed through a number of hands and after World War II, while owned by Basil Porter Putt, its Anzani R1 engine was replaced with a 1.5-liter Salmson. X-103 later joined several other Squires in the United States and was purchased by Robert Davis, a resident of Albuquerque, New Mexico, sometime in the 1950s. He used the car in local sports car rallies, as evidenced by dash plaques that are on the car, until mechanical difficulties resulted in the car being placed in a locked storage unit in the early 1970s with eventual plans to restore the Squire. The car described sold for $145,000, including buyer 's premium, at the Bonhams & Brooks Quail Lodge sale held August 18, 2001. The interest in the car, which led to a sale price $100,000 above the low estimate, can be attributed to a recent interest in "barn finds" and the historical significance of owning the "missing" Squire. Robert Davis, a bachelor; passed away in 2000 and left his estate to his brother 's three children. The heirs, although not "car people," were not anxious to dispose of the Squire until they knew more about the car; even though there were several offers. Through a convoluted turn of events, I was engaged to advise the family about X-103 and its future. to be the most attractive coachwork of the three Vanden Plas-bodied cars. It carries what many consider and around the car With a great deal of effort, X-103 was dragged—four flat tires don't roll—out of the dark garage for further inspection. However; even displayed in its worst state it was apparent why the Vanden Plas roadster has been called the most attractive British two-seater ever built. • Years produced  Number produced  Original list price  The dry climate of New Mexico had been kind to the Squire. There was no noticeable rot in the woodframe and the leather seats were still useable as patterns. A small section had been cut out of the right rear fender, but other than that, the body was solid. The Salmson replacement engine was intact, as was the original Wilson-E.N.V four-speed pre-select transmission. However; the chronograph, which had been ordered for racing activities by the first owner; was missing. Family documents indicated that Davis had removed the device when the car was first stored and it was in his home for safe keeping. Unfortunately, after his passing, the home was burglarized and it can only be assumed that the near-irreplaceable instrument was stolen and fenced for a few dollars. 1935-36 7 Tune-up/major service  Distributor cap  Chassis #  Engine #  Club  I met two of the family members and their spouses in Albuquerque in March of this year with ptans to examine and photograph the Squire and to determine the best method of disposing of the car. The storage facility was in a very secure location; the facility manager would not allow access to the garage until evidence was provided that they were in fact the proper heirs to the estate.

As evidence of Davis's plans to restore X103, a large wooden box containing components of an original-type Anzani R1 engine was in the storage unit. The engines that Squire used were purchased from Anzani with a Squire emblem cast into the intake manifold and breather cap. No mention of the Anzani name appeared. The original engines were also fitted with a David Brown Roots supercharger The fantasy offinding a pristine example of a rare vehicle that had not seen the light of day for a quarter of a century was quickly dashed as we rolled up the garage door It was readily apparent why the car had not been utilized.

.311 Zhe nc(1111 Zatient By Gary Anderson  Addressing the Mysteries of British Car Ownership A 20-Year-Old New Car has never been registered It may have been used as a display car and has only 420 kilometers (about 250 miles) on the odometer. Everything is original except the battery. It's in excellent condition and runs like new. How can I determine its value? Where would you recommend that I try to sell it to get the best value?— Dick Harling, via e D - mail This certainly is an unusual car. Only very seldom is an unused time-capsule car like this found. It will be of significant intellectual interest to Triumph enthusiasts. With its low mileage and exceptional originality, it definitely is worth some premium over a restored Spitfire of the same vintage. However, a car like this is a conundrum. What does a buyer do with it? If it isn't used, it will need to continue to be stored under museum conditions, but it isn't of sufficient historical interest for most museums to be willing to keep. Otherwise, it is going to need to be driven and maintained in order to keep from deteriorating, but every additional kilometer added to that odometer decreases the value of the car. So what is a buyer to do: pay the expenses to keep the car in storage or pay in depreciation by using the car as it was originally intended? To get an idea of value for insurance purposes, there are several reputable appraisers listed in our Resource Directory (pages 70-71) who can help you by providing a written appraisal for a reasonable fee. The ultimate value dilemma you face with this car is that it is a pristine example of a not-very-valuable car. By the end of their run, "bone-in-the-nose" Spitfires had lost much of their panache to US smog and safety regulations. Because the car is in a low-price category but has unusual attributes, you need to try a December, 2001  ear Mr. Anderson: I have a "brand-new" 1981 Triumph Spiffire that I would like to sell. By brand-new I mean that it was stored at a dealership after Triumph went out of business and "rifle-shot" marketing approach. I suggest the Internet and various Triumph clubs, where your chances are good of finding a Spitfire enthusiast who really wants this car and is able to pay a fair price for it. Dear Mt: Anderson: Jam trying to find information about the Austin Princess sedan. I have a 1946 model that needs restoring and am interested in its worth.—Bob Gray, via e - mail The quickest answer would be that this car isn't worth restoring. In fact, one could say the same thing about nearly any four-door British car made from 1946 to 1960. These sedans, or saloons to give them their proper British designation, are larger and more complicated than their coupe and roadster siblings and therefore more expensive to restore, and are almost all worth less than the sportier models. As a general rule of thumb, few postwar British sedans will be worth more than $15,000, even in firstclass condition. At first glance, the Austin Princess might seem to be an exception. First manufactured in 1947 (your title or information may be in error by at least one year) these cars were intended as was 16 feet long, and the limousine almost 18 feet long, with a glass divider between the seats. The six-cylinder Austin engine, originally designed for trucks, was refined to produce 130 horsepower. With this engine, period reports claimed a quarter-mile time of 21 seconds and a top speed of 86 mph (79 mph for the limousine). In our modern world, this won't be a very practical car. Like most sedans of the period, freeway driving is dangerous since it takes forever to get up to highway speed and once there the period steering and brakes make the car an almost uncontrollable juggernaut. Sedate motoring to the ice cream parlor and the occasional field meet is much more its speed. There are actually a surprising number of these cars still in existence. Austin continued to produce the Princess through 1959 and then the Vanden Plas company produced the limousine version for another nine years. Though the car was never actively marketed in the US, a large number seemed to have found their way here. Many are still in active use by limo services as wedding cars. Kip Motor Company of Dallas, Texas (972/ 243-0440, www.kipmotor.com), one of the best sources in the country for parts for unusual British cars, reports that they have over 100 customers for Princess parts in their database. Drive it and devalue a. chauffeur cars to drive a lord mayor or a small company managing director to official functions. England was enduring its worst period of postwar austerity when the car was first built, so the cars had to be made as cheaply as possible. Nevertheless, they were grandly scaled, with the limousines bodied by Vanden Plas. The basic saloon Unless this is the car that carried you and your mother home from the hospital when you were born, or there is some other strong family tie, we'd suggest you sell it to someone who has a more pressing need for it instead of restoring it. If you really like its lines, you should be able to find a restored one for a reasonable price. On the other hand, if you have nothing better to do with your evenings and weekends for the next decade, would like to restore it, and think that carving an 18-footlong car out of wood sounds like fun, Kip Motor should be able to help put you in touch with other owners and provide parts.

PORSCHE ik MERCEDES-BENZ -* BMW UND ANDERE c4PaA, tad 1Itrz6eer 11) R Chassis number: 47229 17465 orsche has built some wonderful cars in its half century as a manufacturer, creating a legacy revered by enthusiasts and an image that is instantly recognizable. Erwin Komenda's first 1948 Gmund coupe is clearly echoed in Porsches right up to today's Carreras and is still effective, efficient and attractive. Porsche's classic profile as a blend of style and substance highlight the marque's purity of design. Australian Jeff Dutton had well-established credentials as a Porschephile, not only owning barns full of them over the years but also crafting numerous unique creations, including a wide-bodied 356 Speedster and variants of the Turbo, RS and RSR models. Yet his desire to develop a unique Porsche-based automobile that would still be recognizable in the tradition of Komenda's immortal style convinced him to build this car as a Porsche project to end all Porsche projects. Starting with a mid-engined 914-6, Dutton added a race-prepped 3liter 279-hp RS-spec engine, breathing through a pair of three-barrel Webers, mated to a close-ratio Type 915 five-speed transmission. A set of full-trick 934 brakes provides retardation to offset the modified engine's urge. It was not easy to make a Komenda Porsche out of a boxy 914; however, Dutton's solution started with a worn-out 1955 356 Continental Coupe. Porsche purists might argue with the approach, but a quick tape measure survey demonstrated that the dimensions were compatible other than the wheelbase, which was 13.8 inches longer in the 914-6 chassis than the 356 body. While creating a mid-engined Porsche based on the classic Gmund form might seem extreme, it was an exercise with Stuttgart precedent in the 550A Le Mans coupe and the 904. The Continental's nose fit the 914-6 pan well, but from the doors back the project got interesting. Hot steel sheets were stretched over the space occupied by the three-liter six to form a gentle curve from the chopped roof, with its 10-inch high split windshield, to the tapered and flowing tail. The expanse of curved metal between the doors and rear wheel wells was broken up with inset louvered panels, a concept successfully translated from the RSK. The Silver Bullet is alive with details. Polished scoops replicate rear quarter windows; a polished aluminum engine cover conceals the 915 transaxle; the engine lies below another polished and louvered panel that takes the place of the rear window, accented by a rooftop cold-air intake periscope. This detail is seemingly drawn from the 1996 911 GT1 racer, but in fact was created for the Silver Bullet in 1992. The engine air intake periscope is mirrored by a roofmounted rear-view mirror and, even more imaginatively, a low mounted rear-view mirror looking through the passenger's door. This car stands as a work of art while working as a Porsche as well, an attribute not shared with many other customs. The Silver Bullet has completed several high-speed events in Australia and is presented in exceptional condition. In addition to high-speed road Number produced  Original list price  Year produced  Tune-up/major service  Distributor cap  Chassis #  Engine #  Club  Web site  Alternatives  60  Market Review Buyer's Guide 1955 Porsche 356 Silver Bullet Longtail Coupe events, its custom design and superb execution make it a welcome entrant at rod and custom shows, where it has garnered several awards in its native Australia. This car was bid to $55,000 and not sold at the RM Monterey sale held August 18, 2001. There are a band of 356 enthusiasts, known as the "Outlaws," who make interesting mild customs. Some of these cars have chopped roofs and fender flares. Others are based on stock bodies with 911 power plants, or more radically, custom four-cylinder 911-based engines. The Silver Bullet stands apart from these cars. While Porsche-based, it is no more a Porsche than the hot rod Scrape is a 1939 Lincoln. It has stunning looks and prodigious performance, but that can be said of a host of cars, including a brand-new 996. So what is the purpose of the Silver Bullet, and who is its prospective buyer? It stands as a tribute by Jeff Dutton to Porsche, and with its various visual allusions evokes memories of Porsche's many successes on the race track 1992 1 N/A $575 $20 Wherever the builder stuck it See above Porsche Club of America, 5530 Edgemont Dr., Alexandria, VA 22310 (entry for this car not guaranteed) www.pca.org 914-6 body with a 1955 356 engine and a roof scoop But as a one-off hybrid, it isn't eligible for any vintage event of note; to allow this car into the California Mille or the Colorado Grand, for instance, would be tantamount to insulting every authentic car entered At a concours, it would have to go into the homebuilt kit-car category, a class we are not likely to see in the near or far future at Pebble Beach, Meadow Brook or Amelia Island Further, the new owner will spend half his life explaining what the car is to curious onlookers. Chances are the Porsche guys won't care because it 's a bastard child, and the non-Porsche folks won't care because they won't understand the tribute aspect of the car This car has since popped up for sale with an asking price of $66,000, which is far below replacement cost. For an enthusiast lookingfor something unusual with great horsepower and extraordinary looks, it is a good buy. It will always be an automotive oddity, though, with an uncertain value in terms offuture collectibility.—Keith Martin (Historic data courtesy of auction company)• Sports Car Market

es Upgrades Can Be Downers A s enthusiasts, our urge to upgrade our cars is nearly irresistible. Perhaps it stems from hours spent poring over J.C. Whitney catalogs when we were supposed to be studying 12th grade biology. Or maybe it's just the American "make it faster" affliction manifesting itself in our German cars. Bolting parts onto a 356 that purport to make it a better car is pretty easy. But in my opinion, stock is best, and few of the upgrades come without significant problems attached. A common engine enhancement for 356s is the installation of a "big-bore kit." These piston sets, originally made by NPR (Nippon Piston Ring), are now available from other suppliers who have copied the Japanese kit. Popular when 356 values were low, these sets allowed you to save a few hundred bucks off the price of the original Mahle parts while adding about 150 cc of displacement, bringing the stock 1582 cc to between 1720 cc and 1780 cc. The oversized pistons can be a source of continuous trouble and even lead to engine failure. Some mechanics believe the larger displacement causes a second-order harmonic vibration that accelerates crankshaft destruction. The more immediate problem, though, stems from a lack of care in setting the compression ratio when installing non-original piston sets. The compression ratio is set in a 356 engine by adding thin shims between the bottom of the cylinders and the crankcase to adjust the distance between the top of the piston and the head. To properly accomplish this, the engine is test assembled out to the heads and the different heads, valve sizes, piston designs and camshafts, which means that no single carburetor type or size works for all. Porsche had three different carburetor set-ups and two different carb types (Zenith single-barrels and Solex twin-barrels) to cover the 356 line. When engines changed, so did the carbs. For example, a 1963 B Super has Zenith carbs and produces 75 hp; the 1964 C has Zenith carbs and produces 75 hp. The Zenith carbs, identical on the outside, are completely different on the inside for these two engines. Even the insides of the intake manifolds differ. The Porsche factory did their homework when they built these cars. If you buy Webers, plan on working hard to make them right. Many 356s are offered for sale with the phrase "upgraded to 12-volt system" in the advertisements. 356 owners with stock 6-volt systems often complain about dim headlights or a slow-turning starter. But consider that when new, 356s with their stock 6-volt systems earned a reputation for being true all-weather cars that were started and driven regularly in the snow as well as the heat of summer. So what's gone wrong over the years? The 6-volt systems work well when the fuse box and wire ends throughout the car are corrosion free, all the ground straps are making proper contact, the battery terminals are clean and the cables are tight. If you have a strong battery (I recommend an Optima leak-proof model, which fits perfectly with no alterations), a working generator and a correctly adjusted voltage regulator, six volts should be plenty. If all the preceding check out but your starter still cranks slowly, it's probably a bad bushing in the starter or an ignition switch that needs replacement. Best to stick with stock examples like this one. combustion chamber filled with fluid and carefully measured. Many 356 heads have been flycut to get the cylinder-to-head mating surfaces flat, adding to the difficulty of obtaining a factory compression setting. If the compression ratio is set wrong, the result is either a very quick car that blows itself to bits in short order, or a slug. Compression too low won't generate the power originally called for, and a too-high compression ratio will generate excess heat and loads beyond design tolerances. If a big-bore kit is installed by an expert, then this "upgrade" might perform as well as the original parts. But especially with too much compression, I've seen engines that ran hot, resulting in a broken crankshaft, which led to a rod poking out through the side of the block. It wasn't a pretty sight. Weber carbs are another popular addition. These are fine carbs (I know Alfa guys swear by them) and I have seen superb mechanics with lots of patience get the Webers set up so performance will just about equal the stock Zenith (used on Normal, Super and C engines) and Solex (Super-90 and SC engines) carbs. Armchair enthusiasts (and Weber-carb marketing gurus) claim you can buy a set of Webers pre-jetted for your 356, bolt them on and suddenly start smoking your rear tires at stoplight drags. But the reality is that 60, 75, 90 and 95-hp engines have December, 2001  I currently own four 356s, each of which are regularly started and driven in the winter. Their well-maintained 6-volt systems work just fine. Next month: tire and suspension upgrades.

The Appraiser's Corner Excerpts from Actual Appraisals by Steve Cram 1968 Chevrolet Camaro Coupe Odometer: 41,770 miles; 141,770 or more assumed by appraiser. Exterior color: Bright blue medium Interior color: Black vinyl and cloth to seats with original black rugs and headliner Equipment: Automatic transmission, power steerin g, A/C, aftermarket stereo, aftermarket mag wheels, aftermarket tires, console with dual-gate shift lever, dual exhaust s ystem. Updated with a 1977 350-ci Chevrolet engine. Condition: Using the traditional rating ng scale for vintage and/ or collector cars of 1 to 6 (1, mint/show/perfect/as-new, 2, ver y good; 3, good; 4, fair; 5, poor/rough; 6, parts car), this slightly modified survivor is in #3+ high good condition. Exterior: Good physical specimen with usual evidence of past skirmishes. Much done to bodywork prior to good paint job in bright blue, which replaced rather boring dark green. Paint high #3. Same for exterior chrome and brightwork; grille #2. Grommets/seals #3 (some replaced). Lenses/ glass high #3. Tires high #3, mags high #2. Interior: Seats tastefully redone to #2; rugs original #3; dash #3, headliner #4. A/C unit non-operative at this point. Aftermarket stereo installed without alterin g dashboard. Trunk Compartment: High #3 to all. Clean. Jack, spare and tools present. Engine Compartment: Clean #3 but not detailed for show. Cooling system in very good order; same for wiring. Undercarriage: High #3 everywhere. Exhaust/muffler #2, rear end, suspension, steering components #3. Mechanics: Starts quickly, warms up well and then performs and handles well—#3 up. Health y, smooth-running replacement 350-c.i. V8. History: Original build sheet not available. Car supposedly has had one-family ownership since new. Vehicle has been tastefully updated through the years. Seat upholstery has been redone nicely, though not to original specs. Aftermarket stereo carefully installed. Later mags and tires set the car off well. The 1968 Camaro was the second year of production for the new GM pony car first offered in 1967 as a counter to Ford's Mustang (albeit a tad late). A good, solid car that offered a dizz ying array of creature comforts to satisfy any taste and for reasonable bucks, too. This unit may have been a basic V8 coupe with Power glide on a 327. Fully documented Camaros are rare. Most have been modified to one extent or another. Fortunatel y, this car was not hacked up as many were. Good, tasteful semirestoration. With club support ver y high and abundant parts houses, many good miles lie ahead of this car. Value: $7,500. Note: decision of GM to kill the current Camaro will have no effect on the value of vinta ge examples, as the two models are completely different. SCM welcomes appraisals  other *praisers.

Restoration - Service Sales - Automobilia Memorabilia - Gift Shop # 43 www.guildclassiccars.com sv*'' VES sir CURD Hours: , * Mon - Fri: 9:30 -5:00 Sat: 9:30 - 3:00 The Guild of Automotive Restorers has become one of the largest and most successful restoration companies in North America and its success is directly tied to the enthusiasm of the old car hobbyists who are both our clients and our friends. We have worked hard not only to be successful but also to maintain honesty and integrity in our work and dealings, to be a refuge for skills that are too quickly being lost and to preserve our automotive history and heritage. Restoration is undoubtedly the most difficult discipline in the automotive industry. It encompasses every kind of job—from chassis to upholstery— and has to be done in higher detail and with more precision than usually required in any other field. Add to that problem a usual lack of good information and references and you can see why restoration requires artistry and craftsmanship, intelligence and ingenuity, reliability and great experience to accomplish properly. One of our proudest accomplishments at the Guild is the gathering together of a staff of expert professionals. Our good reputation as a restoration shop has had the added bonus of attracting top-level people, and it is these people who have accomplished the wonderful things that the Guild has done over the last few years. These people are the ones that work on every car that comes through the door. They have hundreds of years of combined experience and expertise and that is reflected in the awards that our clients receive at car shows and concours all over North America. The Guild has had the great fortune of restoring hundreds of cars ranging from the brass era to the age of muscle, and whether it is a Model T or a Ferrari, the same dedication and excitement is brought to each car. If you are looking for a shop to restore your automobile, and you want to rest assured that it is in the hands of the top people in the industry, you have to search no further. If you want it to be reliable and beautiful, and you want adequate postrestoration support and guarantees, you have to search no further. If you want your project done in-house, from chassis repair to final polish, instead of being spread to the four winds, you have to search no further. Give us a call; we look forward to hearing from you. David Grainger/Janice Stone, proprietors The Guild of Automotive Restorers P.O.

Aren't they the most popular sports car in America? More bang for the buck. — Walter Damus, Jr., Seattle, WA Keep it as is. When SCM, Autocar, R&T and Auto Week arrive on the same day, SCM is always read first. It really is number one! — Richard Lynch, San Pedro, CA More rally info, FAIA UK rallies and even Donald Sevart, Los Angeles, CA Articles relating to car collection, i.e., garage, storage buildings, must-have tools, maintenance, cosmetic tips, etc. Thanks for a great magazine.—Joseph Natole, M.D., Saginaw, MI US rallies. — It is perfect as is. Resist becoming another glossy ad-filled industry sycophant. Maintain your editorial integrity and unique point of view. Damon Katz, Chevy Chase, MD More pages, more color. — — Chris Solwar, New York, NY I read SCM cover to cover. If there is an article I'm not interested in, I don't read it. No complaints here. I like automobiles and SCM covers all the bases.—William Gruss, Lombard, IL I still enjoy seeing my car as your Ghibli "file photo" (March 2001, page 18). It still looks as good. Thanks.—Scott McGill, Tacoma, WA Stop putting the kiss of death on certain cars just because you don't like them. For every car, there is someone who likes it.—Mike Ciambatista, Syracuse, NY I really enjoy your magazine and can't think of much you could do to improve it.—Harvey Henderson, Honolulu, HI Focus most on pre-auctions. Also, more sports cars and vintage race cars. Not so much R-R, Model T and assorted garage queens.— Nels Leutwiler, Lake Bluff, IL I receive many auto magazines, but few do I read cover to cover as I do SCM It's not broke, so don't fix it. Thanks.—Neil Rabin, Metairie, LA Your magazine is probably hard to improve. Maybe cover an auction in Japan.—Marshall Bautz, Lexington, MA If there were any, we would.—ED. I really do like the motorcycles. Rubright, Boulder, CO Have each of my issues delivered by hand by Catherine Zeta-Jones!—Stuart M. Sobek, Fremont, CA I would like to see a series of articles on how to get started. What to buy and look for, and why. — Chris Romney, Bellevue, WA Please, no custom cars. Vintage rods are interesting, though. I really enjoy your publication. — Greg Davis, Westline, PA Don't do anything! You have a perfect balance. Your magazine is my Bible....along with Hemmings.—Jeremy Why, Sidney, BC, Canada 68  — Noah More articles on older Lambos, if possible. Also, coverage of the '69-'70 Mangusta would be nice. — Craig Holbcomb, Holbcomb Auto Sales & Services, Omaha, NE Keep telling funny Ferrari 330 stories relate! — — — I can Stephen Ramsden, Mercer Island WA Great stuff. I look forward to reading every month. I'm most interested in cars for under $50k. David Burns, Ottawa, ON, Canada It would be nice to see something like "A Year in the Life of...," especially auctioned cars after the sale. Keep up the great work!—Ruben Czerny, Seal Beach, CA Color photos on all auction vehicles. — Fred K., Satellite Beach, FL We're beginning that with this issue.—ED. Keep up the good work. Enjoyed meeting Ms. Banzer at Concorso Italiano in Pebble Beach.— Dick Vorisek, Morristown, NJ All Alfa Romeo (this to counter the next comment, which will probably be to drop Alfa Romeo). A monthly "Strengths and Weaknesses," one-page for each model, by an expert of that model.—Dave Hammond, Bloomfield Hills, MI Keep up the good work. — USA, Inc., Westbury NY Just keep it true and funny. Tanen, Santa Monica, CA Abarth Register Ned Stone — Perhaps some interviews with the collectors. Why they buy, what they buy, where they buy, who does their restoration work. Get out and talk to the buyers.—Christopher Turner, Norwalk, CT It is great now, but perhaps some reader reviews of rallies, etc. and more about authenticity. CA — Edwin Suhrbier, Indian Wells, More prewar American. We hear prices are falling as the younger generation buys "their" cars. Only auction results will tell the story.— John Boyle, Abilene, TX You don't need any advice from anybody.— Thomas A. Rounds, Palm Springs, CA I learn a lot from personal experiences— more, please. SCM is great, just more of the same great stuff for us auto addicts. This is our "Big Book." — Gordon Roth, Geneva, IL More American. Of my auto subscriptions (AutoWeek, Automobile, Car and Driver, Motor Trend and SCM), SCM is far and away the best of the bunch.—Douglas Robie, Underhill, VT Specifically, Corvettes.—John Grail, Madison, WI Great publication. My only suggestion would be less American cars. Are muscle cars even sports cars? Keep up the good work.—Edward H.

BEsTBANc & co AUTOMOBILE APPRAISAL A Behind-the-Scenes Look at a World-Class Auction Keith Martin, Cindy Banzer and the experts from the SCMstaff invite you to join them in three information-packed seminars, held right in the midst of the world's largest collector car auction, Barrett-Jackson. Participants will be part of an exclusive, intimate group that will participate in no-holds-barred discussions of the collector car market as well as hands-on examinations of cars that are going to be crossing the block. Seminars will be held from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon, Thursday, Friday and Saturday mornings. Sunday, SCManalysts will be available to examine cars and answer questions. Conveniently located on-site, a different car-collecting topic will be featured at each seminar. After each discussion, there will be ample time for you to ask direct questions about the auction experience. We guarantee you'll get straight answers. How to decide how much to bid. When to walk away from a car. The secrets of buying and selling on the block. How to tell when a car reaches its reserve. How to examine a car like a pro. All this and more will be discussed in detail. The Field Walk Each day, after the seminar, you can join the well-known "Field Walk," when the group, escorted by Keith and other SCM experts, will take a "hands-on" look at the cars you are interested in and evaluate them with you. Register Today Space is strictly limited and last year's event sold out quickly.

eWatch 8 r -r; by Carl Bomstead Hershey, Pennsylvania. Overall, participation was off only slightly. Those who attended were rewarded with glorious Pennsylvania sunshine, no mud and the opportunity to do business the old-fashioned way: by actually holding apiece in your hand or sitting in the car you were looking at and bargaining face-to-face with the seller. Primitive by cyber-standards, but still fun and a nice alternative to squinting at a monitor in the loneliness of your home office. Opening bids were hard to come by on eBay Motors last month; perhaps all the serious bidders were at Hershey and had left their laptops at home. A 1973 DeTomaso Pantera—painted a shade of orange that only a mother could love— was stated to have been appraised at $30,000 but failed to get started at $25,000. A 1974 Jensen-Healey fared similarly, failing to earn a desired opening bid of $6,000. A Resale Red 1977 Morgan Plus 8 was looking for an opening bid of $27,000, and that's nearly enough for two Morgans. A 1979 Jaguar XJS that once belonged to Karen Carpenter received six bids with the highest being $9,155; however, the seller was looking for $25,000. At least in this case, the seller could probably say with certainty that the car had never been eaten in. In the "things that can't be explained" department, a fakey-doo reproduction Mobile World's Fair license plate attachment received 12 bids on eBay and sold for $152.50 while a real example only received four bids and sold for $100 less! A very nice Texaco Aviation quart can, also on eBay, sold a few months ago for $300 and recently another, just as nice, sold at the "Buy it Now" price of $800. Go figure... A A 1972 Cadillac Eldorado convertible was offered on Yahoo!Auctions with a less-thaninspiring description. Dents and dings caused by owner negligence, the loss of precious internal fluids and the statement, "Frankly I don't care if it does not sell," are not the things that inspire the clicking of the bid button. The seller should be pleased, as the Caddy didn't sell. Eight bids pushed it to just $3,950, well below the reserve. He can keep abusing it a little longer while it continues to depreciate. ny concerns about the economy, travel and crowds did not deter the faithful from their annual pilgrimage to the world's largest swap meet in A 1975 75,000-mile Bricklin did sell on eBayMotors for $7,500 after six bids (I didn't know there were that many Bricklinites on the planet). Also selling was a Mercedes-Benz 230SL that had been highly customized, with a 5.7-liter small block V8 shoehomed under the hood, custom gauges installed and a long list of other personalized touches reflecting questionable taste. The seller claimed $60,000 "invested." However, the lone bidder took it home at the required opening of $11,000. eBay #1472490188—JAY LENO'S CELEBRITY-SIGNED 2001 HARLEYDAVIDSON. First bid: $20,000. Number of bids: 148. SOLD AT: $360,200. Date sold: 10/17/2001. Dozens of celebrities signed Leno's limited edition FXDL Dyna Low Rider and the proceeds from the sale of the Harley and matching Ford pickup will benefit the Twin final price has no relation- Tnwerg Fund Thp ship to actual value, but illustrates the generosity and concern that exists for the victims of the terrorist attacks on our country. eBay #1015497079-1948 SCHWINN WHIZZER MOTORBIKE. First bid: $1,000. Number of bids: 13. SOLD AT: $2,450.26. Date sold: 10/17/2001. Whizzer motorbikes were very popular in the 1940s and early '50s and today the price of a fully restored, heavily optioned example can exceed $5,000. The buyer of this one appears to have done well. When adjusted properly, with a slight decline, these things can go 40 mph. Combine the skinny tires and lack of brakes, and you've got an E-ticket ride ahead. eBayMotors #596635808 - 1994 FER- RARI 348 SPYDER. First bid: $5,000. Number of bids: 45. SOLD AT: $43,302.01. Date sold: 10/18/2001. A desirable 348 Ferrari with less than 5,000 miles at about half the going rate appears to be a great deal at first glance. However, the Ferrari sat partially submerged in Texas flood water for a few days. The seller stated that it did not reach the dash and wiring. The 348 has not been started since, which is a plus, but attractive German Grand Prix race car is the type of automotive art that resides in quantity at the Blackhawk Museum in California. There has been a resurgence of interest in early racing items. Most of the collectors appear to be well heeled, however, so be prepared to pay prices in this range, ifnot more, for desirable pieces like this.• Information is on the wa • the new owner is rolling the dice. If he can get the car up to snuff for $20k, he'll be ahead of the game. But if he has guessed wrong, 50 large in engine, transaxle, brake and cosmetic work could put him upside-down quickly. eBay #1012395934—WINGED WHEEL CAR MASCOT/TROPHY. First bid: $50. Number of bids:7. SOLD AT: $260. Date sold:10/7/2001. This hood ornament was awarded in 1933 by the Kirkburton Motor Car Club. The name of the recipient is engraved on the base and, considering the graphic appeal of the piece, it sold for well under the current market value. Why didn't I take my laptop to Hershey after all? eBay #1464201411 - 1910 AUTO RACE TROPHY. First bid: $100. Number of bids: 30. SOLD AT: $2,275. Date sold: 10/14/2001. This handsome 12-inch cup trophy, fully engraved with a detailed vintage auto race scene, was presented by the Automobile Club of Seattle as a first place award at The Meadows Race Track. The "big boys" in Seattle must have been out for a latte, as the new owner of this piece of Northwest racing history resides on the East Coast. eBay #1011870850—FIGURAL INKWELL-1920s RACE CAR.
