Shifting Gears / Keith Martin —Valencia, Spain 5 Andalusian Suite omewhere outside of Grenada, Spain, I watched from the passenger seat as Jean Sage ran the engine in his 250 SWB to 6,500 rpm. Accelerating up a short straight on a closed-road hillclimb, he cracked a perfect upshift into third before hitting the brakes, double-clutching back down into second, and pitching the car sideways through the next hairpin. Manager Editor Cindy Banzer and I were participating in the fourth edition of the Tour de Espaiia, a five-day event in the south of Spain that started in Grenada and ended in Valencia. The route book promised a nonstop program of circuit racing and hillclimbs, linked by highspeed transits. Sage was driving his dark blue SWB, S/N 2165 GT, that he has owned for 31 years. A renowned Ferrari historian and formidable vintage event driver, this was my first opportunity to spend time with him. In addition to comparing philosophies of collecting, I admired his mastery behind the wheel. The Tour de Espafia is an intense, difficult and sometimes dangerous event. One race was held at night on a Formula One circuit, with speeds exceeding 140 mph. (You'll find our photo essay on page 12.) It is put on by Patrick and Sylviane Peter, in conjunction with the Federacion Andaluza de Automovilismo of Spain and Carlos de Miguel Egea. As with any car event, the activities are really an excuse for those who share a passion to come together. From SCM'ers Dennis Varney and wife Kathy in their lightweight Alfa Sprint to good friend Chip Connor and co-driver Danny Sullivan in the ex-Denny Hulme Porsche IROC RSR, everyone shared common goals—to go as quickly as possible, while being mindful of safety issues, and to enjoy their cars as they pushed them to their limits. It's no secret that these European events are hard on cars: the C-type that was punched hard in both nose and tail, the 275 GTB that rolled and burned and the GTA From top: Jean Sage explains the first hillclimb to Editor Martin: SageS course notes.; the SWB heads out from Grenada; del Vecchio 's' Flaminia Zagato. whose front fender was wrapped nearly back past the front wheel well bore mute testimony to the intensity of the competition. Yet no one was injured, and cars, after all, are merely metal that can be reshaped, repeatedly if necessary, into their original configuration. Those who chose to compete at this level have made the conscious decision that the experiences they have racing at the edge are worth the accompanying risk of damage to their cars, themselves and to others. Through the five days, we all learned something about ourselves, our friends and our cars. We learned just how good these cars were when they were built, and just how hard they like to be run. We learned how to settle into a rhythm with our machines, as they performed their daily ballet that sometimes included two hillclimbs and two races on different circuits in a ten-hour period. 6  After Sage's car succumbed to a failed rear-axle bearing, I was graciously offered a ride in a brilliantly restored, chopped-tail 1964 Lancia Flaminia Zagato 2.8-liter 3C. Readers may recall that I briefly owned a similar car with a rounded tail, but sent it on to SCM'er Chet Andrews when its needs began to overwhelm me. This was an opportunity to get highly coveted seat time behind the wheel of a Flaminia Zagato in top condition, and I was not disappointed. Owned by Spaniard Jorge del Vecchio, the Lancia proved itself to be an extraordinarily competent, sophisticated, high-speed GT car. Nearly perfectly balanced with its rear-mounted transaxle, the car stayed exceptionally flat under all circumstances. This was in marked contrast to the extreme lean the hard-working Giulietta Sprints exhibited as we passed them on the track. Our only problem, a wire to the fuel pump that vibrated loose, was no surprise given the pounding these machines took on the hillclimb routes. SCM'er Dick DeLuna ground his GTA's drain plug completely off, depositing several liters of oil on the ground. We at SCM continue to maintain that these European touring events are the best possible way to learn about the DNA of your collector cars, and something about yourself as well. If you're interested in participating in these events and need a co-driver, drop me an e-mail at kmartin@sportscarmarket.com . My FIA license is up to date, my driving suit and helmet are packed and I'm always ready for another adventure. Suburbans & Fresh Meat We've added a new column this month that tracks the prices of "flavor of the month" sports cars. The media-generated buzz and the accompanying inflated asking prices surrounding new models ranging from the Mini Cooper S to the Ferrari Enzo can be fatiguing. The column, entitled "Fresh Meat," will report on verified sales of various new models of interest. You'll find it on page 55. We've added another car to the SCM stable, our first new car ever, a bright red '02 Suburban. The fiscal appeal of 0% interest for 60 months was irresistible. Out of loyalty, our first call was to my former employer, Ron Tonkin Chevrolet and Gran Turismo, but they had already sold out of their '02s. An Internet search brought us to Curt Warner Chevrolet in nearby Vancouver, Washington, where we were well taken care of by their competent and personable fleet manager, Darrell Creamer. If you're considering a new Chevrolet car or truck, contact him for a competitive quote at 800/543-4646, or darrellc @curtwarnerchevrolet.com . Mention that you're an SCM subscriber. He'll treat you right. Snow Goat A '69 Pontiac GTO coupe graces the cover this month, making tracks at the Italian ski resort, Cortina.

You Write, We Read All letters are subject to editing. Please address correspondence to SCM, PO Box 16130, Portland, OR 97292. Fax 503/253-2234, e-mail: copyed@sportscarmarket.com Dear SCM: My submission for the $100k Collection: 1990 Ferrari Testarossa, 1989 Avanti convertible, 1971 Ford Bronco with a 351c.i. engine.—Thierry Sagnier, Falls Church, VA Okay, that's. the first $50k. How are you going to spend the rest?—ED. Dear SCM: Having just bought my first Saab (a 1999 9-3 SE with only 15,000 miles), I read your Saab story with interest (November 2002, page 6). I can only hope that the engine of my Saab doesn't do an imitation of a Drakken supersonic fighter with a Sidewinder up its jet pipe. I thought I'd share my list of unloved but possibly fun oddballs that have either crossed or nearly crossed my threshold: Peugeot 405 Mi16, Alfa 164S, Lancia Scorpion, Triumph GT6, Triumph Stag, Jensen Interceptor coupe, TVR 2500M and 280i, and a MatraSimca Bagheera that looked great and had EPA/DOT releases. One of the things I have always liked about SCM is the fact that bottom feeders and Etceterini fans are just as welcome as those who are worrying about whether or not the Berlinetta Boxer market is making a comeback.—Rob Sass, St. Louis, MO Dear SCM: I am compelled after several months to disclose the destination of a 1958 Ferrari Ellena purchased at RM's Richard Freshman sale during the Ferrari Club of America's annual event held in Los Angeles (August 2002, page 54). I think the license plate says it all. Dear SCM: I was happy to see Sunbeam Tigers covered as your November "Affordable Classic." As the owner of a 1964 Tiger, I can live with the assigned SCM Investment Grade of "B." What I can't live with is the statement that: "Surprisingly, there isn't a huge difference between a real Tiger and a nicely executed fake." To be fair, the context of the statement was dealing with costs of Tigers, but it may be taken by some in the more literal way that it appeared, specifically that indeed there is little difference between real and fake Tigers. It's unfortunate that the simple addition of the words "in price" added after the word "difference" would have changed the whole meaning of the sentence and left it in the economic context.—Stephen Jones, Pullman, WA Your point is well taken and we agree completely—ED. Dear SCM: On page 46 of your August 2002 issue you describe the auction result of a 1960 Maserati 3500 GT coupe. The market comments state that "these are exotic handsome cars with adequate performance. But parts and service are very expensive..." I have no problem with the first part of this statement, but the second part continues to perpetuate the myth that these older Maseratis are expensive to service and that parts are expensive and hard to come by. Nothing is further from the truth. Indeed, as many know, I was the astute purchaser of this poor-quality automobile, and several other lots. Toasted ponies and rusty toads are my business, and this was a very good weekend. The Ellena was undoubtedly the worst car at the sale. Well, maybe tied with the Maserati Transporter, which I also bid on. My closing statement: "We need to sacrifice a few so the strong can survive."— Tom Shaughnessy, San Clemente, CA 10  I have a 1961 3500 GT as well as a 1963 Sebring I, and have yet to encounter a problem in keeping them on the road. Many components of these cars are of British origin (Girling brakes, Salisbury rear end, Borg & Beck clutch, etc.) and belts, hoses, gaskets, even front and rear windows are readily available. When properly tuned and with good oil and water circulation, the 3500 engine is robust and non-temperamental. Compare this to what it costs to maintain and service any Ferrari or Lamborghini. The reason for the decline in Maserati values has much to do with the difficulties experienced by owners of later cars (the Biturbo comes to mind) and lack of dealer support, but very little with the build quality, reliability and driving pleasure you can get from any of the 3,600 or so Maseratis that used the six-cylinder in-line engine.—Harry Garschagen, Orinda, CA Dear SCM: Your comment about the Ferrari 330 GT 2+2,5/N 8523, with independent rear suspension is correct (October 2002, page 30). Chassis number 9291 did have independent rear suspension. It was the only 330 built that way.—Hilary A. Raab, Crown Point, IN Dear SCM: Please let me join in expressing my sorrow at the untimely passing of Pat Braden. I knew Pat from the old days back in Michigan. He and I both lived in the Ann Arbor area, and we both admired and collected Italian cars, especially Abarths and Alfas. Small world: Pat and I both moved to California in the late 1970s, and continued our friendship. He was a nice person and a great historian, and I'll miss him. On another topic, but one dear to Pat, you guys at SCM are fond of exposing what you call "fakeydoos," and that's a great service to the collector community. But you really missed the boat, in a "reverse" sense regarding Lot #27 at the Christie's Pebble Beach Auction. The 1955 Alfa Romeo 1900C (October 2002, page 28) that sold for $35,250 and is listed as a Sprint is actually a genuine Super Sprint! Your description otherwise is very accurate, except for the comment about "single-carb models." This car is a "one-off' Ghia Special that has a twin—but the twin is the Ghia-bodied Jaguar XK 140 that used to belong to Blackhawk. This Alfa has been a regular at Concorso Italian° and was part of the Centerpiece Collection during the Alfa Romeo year and was featured on the "ramp" at two separate Concorsos. What's sad is that because this very special Alfa Romeo has only one carburetor (specially ordered that way by the original purchaser) some self-appointed "experts" keep claiming it is a Sprint, not a Super Sprint. Never mind that the serial numbers confirms it is a Super Sprint, never mind that all of its other equipment confirms that it is a Super Sprint, never mind that I called Fantasy Junction on four different occasions offering proof it was a Super Sprint and that Peter Marshall of the 1900 register and You Write, We Read continued on page 76 SPORTS CAR MARKET Editor & Publisher.

Mr. Wilson's Wild Ride W hat would it be like to own a really old car, something with wood-spoke wheels, brass radiator and trim, and bucket seats in diamond-tufted leather? The car I'd always wanted, a 1910 Hupmobile Model 20 roadster, is a sports car built when Americans first defined the concept: a car for two, with minimal creature comforts, designed to look and go fast. Just a few years later, the Mercer Raceabout and Stutz Bearcat were the Ferraris of their time. The Hupmobile was the MG-TC: durable and peppy, but also small and cheap. And like the TC, its lines and proportions were wonderfully, perfectly right. Well engineered, it was popular when new, and many survive. And they're affordable, costing about the same as an MGA or TR3 in similar condition. But I had always wondered, if I really had one in my garage, would it be any fun to own? Would it merely be a piece of sculpture, a conversation piece to show to guests, or could it actually be driven? Would it be trouble prone and hard to maintain? What about hidden expenses? Would I sit enthroned like Mr. Toad, with a viewpoint eight feet above the road, looking past glittering brass lamps and shimmering paintwork, hearing the slow, heavy pulse of the engine growling through gears and chains, moving unfamiliar levers and controls while sweeping majestically down the highway? Or would the ownership experience consist of sputtering to a standstill on crowded highways, futile efforts to stop when a traffic light turned red, breakage of irreplaceable parts—engine castings, say, or a crankshaft? Would it break my arm when I tried to crank start it? Would it perform like a golf cart, creeping along so slowly that sheer boredom would deter me from taking it out? In the spring of 2001 I bought one to find out for myself. I found it in a museum in north Georgia, a day's drive from me, on loan from a collector who had never registered it for the road. But he had long experience with old cars, so his description and pictures gave me confidence. I drove down with my race car trailer and paid the agreed price, $13k, for just what I expected: a sound, running car, ready to drive, with chipped paint, vinyl seats, and no top. An older restoration at market price. One pleasure I discovered immediately was how easy and satisfying it was to work on. It has no electrical system, no hydraulics, no water pump. Large simple parts are held together with nuts and bolts designed for removal by someone using nothing more than a crescent wrench. In just 50 words the owner's manual gives complete instructions for removing the engine. The way most things work is obvious at a glance: fuel runs downhill from the tank to the carburetor; exposed rods pull the rear brake shoes. Anyone baffled or intimidated by mechanical work on more modern cars would quickly feel confident with this one. And there's an active Hupmobile club, plus thousands of AACA (Antique Automobile Club of America) members, ready to give advice if you need it. I was mystified at first by the engine lubrication. There's a cast iron box filled with oil next to the cylinders, from which oil drips down copper tubes into the crankcase. As the throttle is opened, the flow increases. At full throttle, the manual says, 16 drops per minute should fall past each little window into the engine. But then where does it go? I got the answer on my first drive: it goes everywhere. The big flywheel flings oil from the front main bearing all over the engine compartment. More drools from the exposed valve stems. A fine oil mist exhales from the breather. Effective oil seals were unknown in 1910. Driving the car is more fun than I expected. Crank starting, though it takes a strong arm, produces immediate results nearly every time, and the engine settles into an easy idle. Getting underway is done normally, with very smooth clutch action. There are, of course, quirks. The accelerator is between the clutch and brake, and the shift lever has only two speeds (back for low, forward for high). It shudders and feels unhappy in reverse, which is engaged by moving the lever to the left. Low gear is low enough to climb any hill; high is so tall that the engine is safe from damage going flat out downhill. So the gap between them is enormous, low-gear redline being almost stalling speed in high. A clean double clutch, up or down, is difficult, but satisfying to get right. 14  "I'd like $100 and a tube of bug remover for my face. So this is fun? Well, yes. Going places with the Hupmobile is like using a sailboat instead of a motorboat—more complicated, but more rewarding. You have to plan ahead, and be involved. On level roads the Hupp cruises at 35 to 40 mph, which seems fast enough when you're taking the wind directly in the chest and face. Going straight was impossible when I first got it—the car leaped erratically like a kangaroo—but it settled down when I tightened the rear wheel spokes. With just 3/4 turn lock to lock, the steering is enjoyably direct and accurate at low speeds, but it takes a light touch to smooth out the bumpsteer on back roads. These are the only routes you can take with reasonable safety, because even slight upgrades slow the car considerably. If low gear is needed, the speed drops to some 10 mph. The braking action, by modern standards, is negligible. If the impracticalities of a car like my Hupmobile are obvious, consider these advantages. Maintenance is virtually nil. Early cars dragged from storage after most of a century often run fine with just an oil change and fresh gas. Compare this to the expensive and inevitable brake and electrical problems more modern cars have if they're not driven regularly. Built for punishing circumstances—unpaved roads as rough as creek beds, choking dust, poor-quality lubricants and fuel—they can be made quite reliable in today's conditions. Given that they ooze oil and water from every pore—I didn't mention the rusty water burped from the radiator on long hills—it's almost impossible to reconcile regular use with the dazzling cleanliness and polish of the brass cars you see in museums and at shows. But there are lots of these cars restored from good originals, as mine was, perhaps half a century ago, which now have the comfortable worn look of a favorite reading chair or baseball mitt. Get one to keep up at the lake, for driving to the store on a summer afternoon. You won't get there as fast as usual, but you'll get some fresh air, and arrive with a smile on your face.

Ask The X-Perts Alfa's Orphan V8 Supercar Dear X-perts: I am trying to determine the value of my 1971 Alfa Romeo Montreal, S/N 1425102. This particular car is the second production car built, and it has many unique features that are not shared with other Montreals. I have even located and corresponded with the owner of the third Montreal built, Maurzio Bedina, who informed me that his Alfa has none of the differences my car has. I belong to the Yahoo Montreal forum and posted an inquiry as to the whereabouts of the first Montreal produced. One response reported it was destroyed, but that is unconfirmed. Others in the forum suggested my car could be some sort of preproduction prototype from the description of differences that I listed. According to the Alfa Romeo Archives, Montreal 5102 was built on January 29, 1971, retained by Alfa Romeo for six years, then sold on May 13, 1977. I'm guessing this car was held for promotional purposes. Some unique exterior features are: • A redesigned front NACA hood scoop. It is longer and wider with different radii and is open to allow fresh air to pass through to the engine compartment. This scoop is not interchangeable with other hoods; also the hood itself is unique because of the different shape scoop. • The rear side cabin air intake vent cutouts are also unique in that they are longer and wider than standard production cars. The mesh screens behind them are steel instead of the usual plastic. • The mesh intake grilles just in front of the windshield wipers are stamped steel instead of the usual and unobtainable plastic ones. The rear valance just above the tailpipes has two neatly cut 11/2-inch square holes. I have not been able to determine why they are there. Some unique interior features are: • The door lock cover plate is stamped in steel in the same pattern and shape as the standard production plastic ones that are no longer available. They are fastened to the door panel by two studs and screws. • The roof panel just ahead of the pleated headliner is padded instead of hard molded plastic. • The rear seat is a split two-piece seat instead of the production one- piece. These are the noticeable differences I have been able to determine between my car and standard production cars. There may be more awaiting my discovery. This might be a special Montreal because it could be the earliest example, along with its uniqueness and the rarity of some of its components. Could you help me in assessing its correct value?—Peter Diamantes, Paramus, NJ Keith Martin replies: Peter, I have always enjoyed Montreals, and had one of the two I owned fitted with a handling kit built by guru David Rugh so I could use it on Alfa track days. They have a superb driving position, make a very satisfying sound from their short-stroke V8 and have excellently spaced gear ratios in their ZF gearbox. But they're just not worth very much. They were never officially imported into the US, and most of those that came in as gray-market cars have lived unhappy lives, going from one well-meaning but ill-informed shop to another, with the Spica injection never really properly set up. Further, many of the fussy trim bits are hard to source. And the final nail in the coffin is that the low market value of the cars simply doesn't support any kind of first-rate restoration. In the current market, very nice Montreals seem to change hands in the $15,000 to $18,000 range, but buyers can be very, very hard to find. So that brings us to your car. First of all, as you provide no indication of the condition of your car, we don't know whether you've got a restoration project in waiting or a concours example. But in either event, I'm afraid that in my opinion the unique features you mention don't add any significant value to the car. If this were a Ferrari Superamerica, with buyers who salivate over having a sideways-mounted ashtray or a "speciale" outside gas cap, perhaps your unique features would bring a premium. But this is a Montreal, so they don't. I would also suggest that without documentation to support your as16  Finding a buyer for a stock Montreal can be tough. sertions that these modifications were done by the factory, you've got a tough road ahead establishing provenance. I can't tell you how many Sprint Speciales I've seen with Bondo-buddy nose conversion jobs featuring covered headlights that were being offered as "factory customs." If your car is in nice #2 condition, above a daily driver but not a national concours contender, I would peg it at $16,000 to $20,000. Dear X-perts: I write to you seeking advice regarding my 1996 Porsche Targa. I purchased the car new. It now has 83,000 miles. I know the value has declined significantly due to the mileage. I am vacillating between selling the car for whatever it is worth and buying another 993 Targa with lower miles or keeping mine for the long haul. Any thoughts?—Douglas Freeman, Boston, MA Jim Schrager replies: I think you should shop around a bit and price what it will cost you to step into a lower-mile 993 Targa. There is a 24,000-mile example available in Indiana for about $46,000. Take a look at the difference in price between this one and yours and see what you think. It may be $15,000 or even more. _,,_, ." ._--•Th, o Trading into lower-mileage cars means enduring a price slide. again. 1 .... __ .. Then look at the maintenance history of your car. Has it been a good one? You may want to have a compression test and general review completed of your car's mechanical condition to see if any future repairs show up as needed. In general, the devil you know is better than the one you don't. Further, by buying a low-mileage car, you are simply setting yourself up to go through the depreciation process all over again. Isn't that sort of like leaning into a punch? If you like your current car, and it's in good condition, what's the harm in putting a few thousand more miles on it? You certainly won't hurt the value much.• Sports Car Market

Ferrari Profile H Chassis number: 104799 ifty years of racing, fifty years of winning, fifty years of hard work." With these words, Luca Montezemolo, head of Ferrari S.p.A., introduced the F50 at the Auto Museum in Geneva, Switzerland, in conjunction with the 63rd annual International Automobile Show, on March 6, 1995. F Using technology from Ferrari's Formula One V12, the new, normally aspirated 4.7-liter engine featured a crankcase made of nodular cast iron, Nikasil-coated liners and titanium connecting rods. Maximum power was 520 hp at 8,500 rpm. The engine itself was safe to over 10,000 rpm. The weight of the V12 was a mere 436 pounds. Top speed was given as being 202 mph and 0-60 could be covered in 3.7 seconds. The standing mile could be accomplished in 30.3 seconds. Some cornmentators described the F50 as a Ferrari Formula One machine with a second seat and a sports car body. The chassis was made entirely of aerospace carbon fiber and weighed a lithe 225 pounds. For the first time in a Ferrari road car, the engine/gearbox/ differential assembly acted as a load-bearing structure within the chassis. The instrument panel featured the rev-counter and the speedometer as well as gas, oil and water temperatures and oil pressure gauges—all controlled by microcomputer and displayed by LCD. The body of the F50 was developed in the wind tunnel. Subframes were bolted to the chassis to support the bodywork, which was made of carbon fiber/Kevlar and Nomex honeycomb materials. The F50 was available in just five colors: red, Barchetta Red, yellow, black and Nikburgring Gray. As a small publicity stunt, Ferrari announced that just 349 cars would be built—one less than the market demanded. The first ten cars went to Europe, while deliveries to the US started in July 1995. It was thought that only 50 cars would be sold to America. Years produced  Number produced  Original list price  SCM Price Guide  Tune-up/major service  Distributor cap  Chassis #  The price of the F50 was $475,000 plus taxes. This F50 has received the best of care, each service performed fully and on time. It runs flawlessly with no indication of mechanical wear. It has required some paint repairs for stone chips and other road rash. The interior, while no longer perfect, remains in excellent condition. This car sold for $528,000, including buyer 's premium, at RM's Monterey auction, held August 1610 17, 2002. Engine # Clubs   Web site  Alternatives  SCM Investment Grade The F50 was the evolution of the immensely popular F40. The F40 had demonstrated incredible performance, outrageous styling and everyday-driver reliability With more than 1,300 cars built, the F40 could boast proven salability with a broad base of parts and service support. The F50 proved itself a worthy successor; albeit with a softer edge. The relationship of the F40 to the F50 was a little like that of a chainsaw to a surgeon's scalpel. The brutal power of the F40 's turbocharged 478-hp, 3liter V8 was replaced with the linear power of a normally aspirated 520-hp 4.7-liter V12. Along with the power; refinement came by upgrading the F40 race car level of trim to accoutrements practically befitting a GT car The Lot #357, SN ZFFTA46B000103097 Condition: 1 1995 Ferrari F50 finished product was more potent and more practical than its predecessor but lost some of the edginess and excitement that defined the F40. The Louisiana-based seller of S/N 104799 was a veteran F50 owner and a very serious collector. His prior holdings included a million-dollar F50 GT and a red 1995 F50. This car shared a garage with the Holy Grail ofmany enthusiasts, a Cobra Daytona coupe. The sale ofS/N 104799 cleared a space for the next toy, the $6.5m Ferrari 330 TR/LM that he purchased at the RM auction on Saturday night. the bulkhead in the front compartment Front left side of block Ferrari Club of America, P.O.

Bugatti EB 110 Rather than hoarding his precious treasures in a private museum, the seller regularly exercises his stable. He has been seen driving his cars throughout the bayou country and drove this F50 daily, racking up more than 37,000 miles. RM and the vendor should be quite pleased with the auction result. While the car was unquestionably valuable, it could have been a most difficult sale. 40,000 miles is more than ten times the mileage on most F50s. While the mileage shouldn't affect the mechanical peiformance, it does muddy the perceived value ofthe can At the half-a-million mark buyers can be pretty fussy. A guy who can write a $500,000 check can probably just as easily write a $600,000 check. Given the option, many of the buyers would much rather pay top dollarfor a premium car than save a few bucks on a lesser example. Afresh-out-of-the-box F50 is likely a $650,000 car In May a much lower mileage F50 sold at a Monaco auction for $401,271, a very good buy.

(It appears the SCM Price Guide of $650,000 to $750,000 probably needs to be adjusted downward.) While some say that the car brought an above-market price, the buyer was able to score a relatively rare car with an unusual benefit. He might have bought the only F50 on the planet that can really be driven without hurting its value. It might cost $50,000 in resale value to put 10,000 miles on a 5,000-mile F50, but there may be no difference in the value between a 40,000-mile and a 50,000-mile F50.

Sheehan Speaks The Good and Bad of 456 GTs and 550 Maranellos T he Ferrari 456 GT was introduced to the US market in 1994 and touted as a born-again replacement for the 365 GTB/4 Daytona. According to Ferrari North America then-President Gian-Luigi Buitoni, "We have clients today who don't want to give up the performance of a Testarossa, but they must have more room." Hence, the token 2+2 seating. The reality is that the 456 GT, with its less-than-svelte styling and additional passenger capacity, was more accurately a replacement for the 365 GTC/4, the less-sporty sister of the Daytona. Fitted with a 48-valve, four-cam, 5.5-liter V12 that puts out 442 hp, the 456 offers staggering performance in the 2+2 class. The US version blasts through the quarter-mile in 13.4 seconds at 107.5 mph, and tops out at 186 mph. The user-friendly cockpit, luxurious seating, easily read gauges and six-speed shifter make driving a pleasure and, as a dad who knows, ten-year-old twins think the rear seats are great. Unfortunately, like every other Ferrari 2+2 ever built, the 456 GT and the later 456 M have not fared well in the marketplace, depreciating like stones. Priced at $245,000 out-the-door when new, a prudent buyer should be able to find a nice 1995 456 GT with well under 30,000 miles and with the 30,000-mile service completed for about $85,000. There were no 1996 models; add $5,000 plus a little per model year for a 1997 or 1998. While the asking prices for 1999-2002 456 Ms and GTAs run from $150,000 to $195,000, the real selling prices are in the $115,000 to $140,000 range. The 1995 456s should be considered nearly fully depreciated, and offer a lot of modern-day performance for a reasonable sum. The 550 Maranello was introduced in 1996 and truly was the replacement for the 365 GTB/4. Like the Daytona, the 550 Maranello is an aggressively styled car with its cut-off tail and long-nosed good looks. Fitted with a 5.5-liter, 48-valve V12 that pushes out 485 horsepower at 7,000 rpm, the 550 Maranello. the new Daytona? 550 has a top speed of 199 mph and will rip through the quarter-mile in 12.6 seconds. A total of 3,600 Maranellos were built for the world market during a model run from 1996 to 2002. Today a US-legal, European 1996 or 1997 550 Maranello is in the $115,000 to $125,000 range, while low-mileage 1997 or 1998 US cars are available in the $135,000 to $145,000 range. 1999-2002 models can be found for $160,000 to $185,000. Thinking of buying a 456 or a 550 in Europe or Japan and importing it into the US? The friendly price for a 1997 550 Maranello, with less than 15,000 miles, all services done, in good colors and with the more desirable options such as power Daytona-style seats, is about $90,000 in Europe.

 To get your new purchase to the US and legalized will require trucking to the docks in Europe (about $300); a European shipping agent who can coordinate containerizing the car and do the necessary export paperwork (about $500); shipping to the US (about $1,500 to the East Coast or $2,000 to the West Coast); customs entry fee ($300); US customs duty (2.5%, or about $2,250); a customs bond to guarantee the EPA and DOT will indeed be done (about $3,000); a bond application fee (about $250); and trucking from the dock in the US to the conversion shop that will do the work (about $100 to $200). Then you've got the actual EPA and DOT conversion work (at least $12,500); the EPA and DOT warranty (at $350 each); and last but not least, the lab test processing fee ($900). The grand total ends up being about $22,300 to $22,900. As anyone who has gone through the process knows, there are always little surprises and added costs, including the trip to Europe to actually inspect the car before handing over your hard-earned $90,000. All-up cost is about $112,500 for a car that will have an "ask" price in the $125,000 range and an actual "sell" price of somewhat less. As a moneymaking proposition, the math doesn't work well for a 550 (and even less well for a 456, which explains why there are very few Euro 456s in the US). Bluntly, the only reason to buy a Euro model 550 today is to use the car on a high-speed drive-it-like-Enzo-intended European dream vacation before bringing it home to our land of grand highways and pathetic speed limits. This assumes, of course, that while in Europe your 550 isn't stolen while parked in a supposedly secure spot in front of a hotel or restaurant. As for the costs and pitfalls of ownership, the early 550s run much too much oil pressure and occasionally blow the oil filter apart, creating a major underhood mess. Should the oil filter start to leak as an inattentive owner cruises down the freeway, cheerfully chatting on his cell phone, a Ferrari dealer will be happy to install a new engine for a mere $75,000 or so. A rebuild will be in excess of $30,000 if you haven't managed to spin bearings or score the crank. Preventing the problem is as simple as removing a few spacers in the oil system, which involves an hour's labor, Presenting Ne  Apniwi &Lon fiede  and drops the oil pressure to real-world levels. The circlip holding reverse gear to the gear cluster sometimes fails on the earlier 550s, resulting in major transaxle repair bills. If your 550 (or 456) pops out of reverse, truck it to your friendly local Ferrari service center and have the transaxle pulled and the circlip and reverse gear replaced at a cost of about $3,500. Choose to drive the car with the transaxle making ominous sounds and the repair bill will quickly will increase to about $7,500, after the reverse gear has bounced around in the transaxle like a ball in a squash court for a while. As for factory recalls, the door windows sometimes don't seal well against the rear quarter windows. If you have a US car your authorized dealer should replace the electric window motors, door glass and seals—normally an $8,000 bill—at no cost. Be prepared, if necessary, to throw a temper tantrum to get the work covered under warranty. The earlier 550s also had a wheel recall, so make sure the car you are buying—be it a Euro or US car— has had the wheels replaced under recall notice. Clutches, traditionally a weak spot in Ferraris, or perhaps more realistically a weak spot with novice Ferrari drivers, don't seem to be a problem. It is not uncommon to do a compression and leakdown check on low-mileage 456 and 550 Ferraris and find major problems with poor ring seating and leaky valve seats. If the compression on a car you have inspected is weak, pass and keep looking. As for routine service, the cam and front seals tend to start leaking after about 10,000 miles, so most owners skip the 15,000-mile service and simply go straight to the 30,000-mile service, which includes cam seals, cam belts, valve adjustment and more at a cost of about $3,500. At about $85,000 for a very good '95 456 or $125,000 for a '96 550, we are talking just over 365 GTC/4 or 365 GTB/4 prices for much more modern and user-friendly cars. Yes, they are expensive to maintain, but as the saying goes: premium product, premium price. And, no offense to VW, don't you think you'll get more respect at the car wash when you pull up in your V12 456 Ferrari than in your new similarly priced VW W12 Phaeton, even if you start bragging that it's the "most expensive Volkswagen in the world?"• ilton DolLr Oar edlection Fine eilogopnotiDe cArtworkg 1938 eAllia Romeo 2900 eApproximatety 22" in length The Million Dollar Car Collection is a limited-edition series of collectible artworks reproducing ten of the most outstanding examples of fine automotive design.

English Car Profile 1963 Triumph TR4 Surrey Top Chassis number: CT20787L0 ther than the 1800/2000 roadsters, the TR2 was the first, true postwar Triumph sports car. It was superceded in 1955 by the TR3, which was simply an evolution of the TR2, with the most important additions being a horsepower increase to 90 bhp, a new grille, and front disc brakes—a first for an affordable sports car. 0 The arrival of the TR4 signaled the end of one era and the beginning of another. A completely new body featured wind-up windows, and while the purists howled, everyone else rejoiced. Another modern convenience was, for the first time, a proper trunk. Chassis and drivetrain were little changed, with the most important updates being a synchromesh first gear, and rackand-pinion steering. The cumulative effect of the changes was quite dramatic. Where the earlier cars had been drafty, wet and inconvenient, the TR4 was a car that could be used every day, and it seemed much more modern. The example offered here is believed to have been the New York show car. More importantly, this time-capsule car has completed only 9,834 miles from new, with the original red paint and matching leather remaining in excellent condition. The original Michelin X radials are still mounted to their wire wheels, and show almost no wear. The car is well equipped, with optional overdrive and a wooden dash. Certainly the most unique feature of this car is the Michelotti-designed surrey top. An optional feature, it consists of a rear-roof section incorporating the rear window that, while removable, is intended to remain in place. A removable targa panel—available in both soft and hard versions— installs between the rear section and the windshield. This remarkable surrey-top TR4 is equipped with both panels. Years produced  Number produced  Tune-up/major service  Distributor cap  Chassis #  Engine #  Clubs  This car was sold by RM in Monterey on August 16, 2002, for $26,400, including &Ter's premium. When appraising a collector car, a typical approach is to take as the benchmark the value of a good restored example, then add value for an above-average restoration, unusual features and Web site  Alternatives  SCM Investment Grade low mileage, and subtract value for non-original components and condition below the level of "good restored." If we were appraising this car, we'd start with a value of about $11,000, which is consistent across several price guides in addition to that of Sports Car Market. The surrey top (to call it a targa top is apocryphal, as Triumph introduced this type of top five years before Porsche) adds value, since it was relatively rare and sets the car apart from other TR4s one would see at a Triumphest or Vintage Triumph Register meet. Even adding a few thousand dollars for the feature (an option available on TR4s, 250s, and 6s) still puts us under $15,000.  Condition: 4  Lot #540, S/N CTC78215L  1967 Triumph TR4A  What really sets this car apart is its originality. Only a very few "time capsule" cars like this have turned up that, for one reason or another, were put into proper storage very early in their lifetime and left there without being tampered with until emerging into the present day in nearly new condition. SCM Price Guide .... $8,500-$12,000 (non-surrey top) Original list price  Of course, if the car is going to be driven more than a few miles from its home base, those museum piece Michelin tires will need to be replaced immediately. Radial tires deteriorate as rapidly when not used as when used, and these are old enough to be unsafe at any speed. It 's likely that most of the rubber seals will require replacement as well before the car can be driven any distance with confidence. 1961-64 40,253 (all models) $2,849 $250 $24.95 Top of left inner front fender well Step on left side of engine block Vintage Triumph Register, P.O.

This owner will have the experience of driving a car in good condition that hasn't been repaired or restored, so there won't be any booby-traps left by DPOs (the online list sobriquet for "dumb previous owner"). This car is about as close as one can get to the condition it might have been in when it first left the showroom— the goal of most hobby car restorers. Second, the proud new owner will gain the attention that an unusual unrestored original car, especially one with the rare surrey top, will attract at any Triumph club meet. Third, he is gaining some bragging rights that this car was originally the display car at a major auto show. For a dyed-in-thewool Triumph enthusiast, those benefits can easily double the value of a car of this price range. In any case, the new owner is still out less then $30,000 for a noteworthy Triumph that will deliver all the performance of an average anonymous Healey of the same price.—Gary Anderson• (Historical and descriptive information provided by RM Auctions.)

 The English Patient/Gary Anderson Pay More, Drive Less D ration. What kind of restoration will get me more of my money back in the end, when I sell it? I live close to one restorer who has an excellent reputation for "Pebble Beach" jobs. Also nearby is a body and paint shop that does high-end collision work, as well as restorations of Jaguars. The second shop does less complete jobs, but is considered very reputable by members of our local Jaguar club. I do not plan on working on it myself I am not interested in showing the car, just enjoying it. I would also consider selling it as is.—Paul Camusi, Los Gatos, CA Your letter indicates a state of collector car confusion that is not unusual. First of all, you say the car is in good shape for its age, but needs a total restoration. Total restoration means different things to different people, from a quickie respray to a fullblown rotisserie rebuilding of a car from the ground up. ear Mr. Anderson: I have a 1962 Jaguar XKE roadster for which I paid $25,000. It is in good shape for its age, but needs a total resto- Pay for what impresses the neighbors, not the concours judges. Second, you say you would also consider selling the car as is. To me, this indicates that you might not have the willingness to endure a twoyear restoration, and to write the tens of thousands of dollars in checks it will take to see it through. Frankly, if you're willing to consider selling it now, I suggest you do that, take the money, add a few thousand more, and buy a car that in its current condition meets your needs. But if you're going to proceed with a restoration, let's start by doing some arithmetic. You have $25,000 invested in the car. The Sports Car Market Price Guide lists 1962 XKE 3.8 convertibles in very good condition as trading between $35,000 and $50,000. We have seen a few Etypes in absolutely splendiferous condition selling at auction for more than $100,000 recently. However, $60,000 to $75,000 is much more typical for an excellent example, and most trade exactly in the Price Guide range. Based on those numbers, if you can get your car restored to an excellent driver standard for less than $25,000, giving you a $50,000 total investment, you should have a reasonable chance of getting your money out should you choose to sell it. On the other hand, if you figure that a 99.5-point car at a Jaguar Club meet is worth $100,000, then the most you have to spend on a restoration is $75,000. Now, even if you expect to get that much back, that's enough money to cause some financial heartburn for most of us if things don't go right—and they rarely go right during a concours restoration. Further, to establish the car's worth in the eyes of an auction buyer, you'd have to prove it could earn the concours points, which would mean prepping and trailering it to several shows over the course of a summer, before you even get to drive it. The minute you actually fire it up and take it out for a spin, you will start to devalue the car. I'd say your chances of getting your money back in the end are much better if you have it restored to good driving standards rather than concours standards. Also, be aware that the estimate you get for a good driver restoration is likely to be fairly accurate; the cost of a concours restoration, where every little bolt and widget must be exactly as original, can be a bottomless pit. what they may find when the paint is stripped off. However, they should be able to point out any obvious problems, such as the rusted-out metal under the gas tank in the boot or ill-fitted and badly repaired bonnet that are typical (and expensive) problems often encountered in restorations of E-types. The difference between a concours restoration and an enjoyable driver should be in the originality of the details, not in the quality of the work. Emphasize that you want the car to be mechanically reliable and safe when the restoration is finished, and you want it to look stunning to an average observer. You want good panel fit, a beautiful paint job, and a carefully installed interior. Even if you're opting for a non-concours job, you are still going to be putting a lot of money into this car, and when you're done you want it to be an eye-catcher. However, be sure to tell them that you're willing to accept good reproductions where original parts need to be replaced, and you don't care whether they use English or American nuts and bolts as long as the fastener is the right size for the application. In other words, you want to pay for those attributes that impress the neighbors, but aren't worried about the little details that get concours judges all worked up. Based on their written estimates after they've inspected the car, you can decide whether you want to go with the restoration specialist or the reputable restoration shop. However, even if you decide you don't want to have the car restored to concours standards, this doesn't tell you which restorer to use. Before making that decision, take the car to both the shops you mention and ask them to go over the car with you, and then prepare a detailed written estimate. Not having X-ray vision, they can't tell you December, 2002  Here's my final thought. While you're inspecting the car with the restorers, ask them what it would cost just to make the car safe and reliable, and as attractive as possible without doing a full restoration. If the car is running, you might be able to put it back on the road just by replacing the tires, battery and fluids, rebuilding the brakes and suspension, and doing a good tune-up on the engine. Reupholstering the seats, then doing a very good detailing job on the paint and remainder of the interior might be all the car needs to look presentable. You could get all of this done for less than a few thousand dollars, and be finished in a few weeks. That way, you can drive the car for a summer or two to find out if you really like it. Then you can decide whether you want to turn it over to a restorer to spend the time and money required for any full restoration, or maybe just put it up for auction instead. Of the three strategies, I'm betting the third is the most likely to give you more of your money back in the end. Mr Anderson is publisher of British Car magazine.

SCM Market Report s there such a thing as prudent automotive investment? Or do we just casually tell fibs to one another about the projected future value of our cars as a way of excusing our latest four-wheeled indulgence? SCM has long maintained that cars, at best, are expensive instruments of investment if viewed in purely economic terms. After the initial purchase, a collector car requires a constant infusion of cash to maintain both its monetary and its pleasure-producing value. I When you buy shares of stock, you pay your commission going in, and pay it again going out. That's it for the cost of ownership. But with a car, part of the joy of ownership seems to be the nearly demented way we have to lavish money on it as soon as we purchase it. If you're like me, you plan on spending 10% of your initial purchase price just to "make things right" on the car you've just bought, even if it's already perfect. It may be something as simple as having the front end aligned and the tires balanced, or a more necessary expenditure such as having the carbs balanced or the overdrive redone. It's almost a rite of passage, as if the car isn't truly ours until we've begun to "personalize" it by taking hundred-dollar bills and throwing them at the paint, upholstery and mechanical components. No stock or bond can create chills the way the sound of your Ferrari Dino, GT350 or 930 Turbo will when you fire it up in the garage for the very first time. You may get a small dividend check as a reward for investing in a certain company's stock; the dividend you get from your cars gets delivered nearly every time you drive them. However, now more than ever, quality is everything. As, in the words of Senior Auction Analyst Dave Kinney, "the market continues to tread water," it is increasingly important to make sure the car you are buying is in the best condition possible or that the price you pay for cars with known problems is a fair one given their defects and needs. Barring a global financial crisis on all fronts, we don't foresee the prices of cars moving much in the immediate future. But buyers are becoming more selective, and will only pay strong money for cars that are in top condition. We define a car as a good investment when it holds its own in the market, delivers pride of ownership by making you feel good every time you look at it in the garage, and doesn't have unreasonable maintenance and repair costs. If your car meets these criteria, you're doing just fine.—ED. SCM 1-6 Scale Condition Rating 1: National concours standard/perfect. 2: Very good, dub concours, some small flaws. 3: Average daily driver in decent condition. 4: Still a driver but with some apparent flaws. 5: A nasty beast that runs but has many problems. 6:A non-running car in wretched physical condition that is probably only good for parts.

Market Reports seemed to be nothing radically wrong with it except for some rear body weakness. Someone bought the project for $28,750. Among the other Brits, a '55 Austin-Healey 100M had some money left in it at $28,175 and was a whole lot more road-ready than the Aston for nearly the same price. Bonhams Hershey, Pennsylvania October II, 2002 Auctioneer: Malcolm Barber Number of automotive lots: 30 Number of automotive lots sold: 18 Sale rate: 60% High: Lot #229, 1922 Wisconsin Special, sold al $125,700, including buyer's premium Sale total: $680,850 Buyer's premium on sold lots included: 15% on first $50,000, 10% thereafter Report by Dave Brownell Market opinions in italics A Hershey Golf Club. fter a one-year absence, Bonhams returned to the gargantuan Hershey swap meet and car show to conduct an auction on the grounds of the Leading off with more than 150 lots of automobilia, including numerous radiator mascots and British picnic sets (where do they all come from?), the auction proceeded to a group of well-restored vintage motorcycles from a single collection. A '47 Harley EL sold for $21,850, a '29 Harley DL for $14,950, a '28 four-cylinder Henderson for $23,000 and a to-die-for '55 Vincent Rapide Series D, superbly original in most areas, for $19,550, which was one of the real buys among the two-wheelers. The cars offered were a diverse group, reflecting the kind of selection you might find in the Hershey Car Corral rather than at some highroller sale. All eras were represented, from London-Brighton cars to borderline used cars. There were also full Classics, vintage sports cars and bread-and-butter special-interest cars within the means of nearly any collector. To add spice to the mix, a one-off 1922 Land Speed Record car was put up as well. The Land Speed car, the Wisconsin Special, appeared at the Brooks Quail Lodge auction several years ago where it failed to sell. This time, though, it found a new garage for $125,700, and had the distinction of bringing the highest money among the sold cars. A much younger Toyota 2000GT actually brought a higher bid without premium ($115,000 compared to $113,000 for the Wisconsin Special) but remained unsold at that figure. A great deal of pre-auction interest was shown in an unrestored Aston Martin DB2 drophead. It needed a full restoration, but there 28  Neither brass era cars in the sale made the grade with the 1904 Columbia, which looked all ready for the London-Brighton Run, stalling at $70,000 and the 1911 Benz 50hp Touring also stopping at the same figure. Three full Classics were on offer: a fine 1935 Packard V12 Convertible Victoria didn't get past $60,000, while an eye-catching 1929 Cord L-29 convertible changed owners after long bidding at $121,300. A '29 duPont Waterhouse sedan climbed to $101,500 before selling—a hefty price for a closed Classic of any make. The relentless rain that plagued the Hershey swap meet and car show may have actually benefited the Bonhams sale, as collectors who would have ordinarily been prowling the flea market area and car corral instead came to the auction tent to stay dry and perhaps do some unplanned bidding. In any case, a quite respectable 60% sale rate on such a widely diverse group of cars should have made Bonhamsand the 18 successful sellers—quite happy at the end of the day.—D.B.

For many years the same ballroom used for the auction was the site of an exposition sale held during the same time. It had long been the desire of the owners of "The Auction" in Las Vegas to turn the expo into an auction, and some think it took Bonhams's presentation of an auction nearby to finally get the AACA to allow Blackhawk to put on their event. Unlike most other American auctions, spectators are not allowed during the sale itself. Beforehand, free viewing is open to all, but during the auction the audience is restricted to bidders only, and one guest each. This significantly limits the size and concentrates the focus of the crowd. It's very much set up as a catalog sale without the catalog, and for the smaller scope of the sale (only 68 automotive lots were offered) and the generally high dollar offerings, it works. gine, four-speed gearbox, knock-offs.

These baselevel, few-option cars are where the real value is in Sting Rays. You get handsome looks, enough performance, and good driveability without paying an exorbitant premium for extra trinkets.• 30  Given last year's results of $5.1m and this year's take, the venue is clearly a good one. It really is a natural to have an auction in conjunction with what is billed as the world's largest car event, especially one held at what is traditionally one of the last "car weekends" of the season here on the East Coast. Notable cars included a 1958 MercedesBenz 300SL roadster in fair shape, which sold at $181,500 and an excellently restored 1933 Lincoln Panel Brougham Convertible Sedan that Hershey weather? The legendary rains were there again, but this time with a sense of humor. 2002 was one of the driest years ever in the Hershey area, so we all knew which weekend would be chosen for the heavens to open, and open they did with multiple inches of rain falling on both Thursday and Friday. One auction attendee commented that if a drought appears in 2003, scheduling a Hershey AACA event earlier in the year would certainly provide needed rains. At least nearly all the fields are paved now, so you no longer run quite the same risk of simply disappearing forever into a mudhole. A good fit is a good fit. Blackhawk's Hershey auction appears to be here to stay, and it feels comfortably at home after only its second year. Williams and Clyne find the cars that interest the crowd, and with a no-reserve sale, unrealistic sellers are not an issue. Hershey is a great show and this sale is a great auction. Just remember to pack a raincoat along with your checkbook for next year's event.—D.K. ENGLISH #47-1935 BENTLEY 3.5 LITRE ThreePosition Drophead Coupe. Body by Park Ward. S/N B150CR.

PIErce of merican Macin_q History-I -17 J  .• _  .. •••":. In 1957, three unknowns in Northern Minnesota decided to build a car that would challenge the best that both Europe and the US had to offer in two-seat racers: the Echidna. Though of modest means, they were wealthy in engineering skills, common sense and ingenuity. They built three racers that very often beat internationally famous stars driving the best that Italy and England had to offer, and kept the all-conquering Scarabs honest. The three drivers/builders/owners were true amateurs and entered a limited number of races, yet the number 64 driven by Bill Stayer won the 1958 B-modified National Championship. This is the car which is now offered for sale. Echidna leading Lloyd Ruby 's 4505 Maserati - Meadowdale 1959. TIP ECIIIDIVA 11V12-4 ..;,4, The Echidna was constructed using mostly Chevrolet off-the-shelf components, skillfully modified for their purpose. They produced an 1800lb car that developed over 350 HP at 6500 RPM. The engine started as a stock Corvette 283ci unit, which was enlarged to 339ci (5650cc) with Rochester fuel injection. The car still has a negligible cost of maintenance.

Echidnas have been written up in numerous period magazines (Sports Car Illustrated, AutoWeek) as well as current vintage publications (Vintage Motorsports). All three cars survive, all three have been period-correctly restored, and all three are actively campaigned. The example offered for sale was invited to race this August in the Monterey Historics at Laguna Seca and is in perfect race-ready condition.

Not cheap enough to throw in the well-bought column, but not a bad deal all the way around It's a great car for a driver and if you can live with the "let's go to the disco" colors, the new owner will be fine.

This would have been fully priced for a nice example. As it is, $60,000 is above the current market level for a 300 in this condition.

Someone liked this car a lot more than 1 did A nice example could have easily brought $25,000 to $50,000 more, but 300SL prices continue to surprise.

Paint, chrome and interior good, wood and tires better. Plenty of flaws, but a good driver. Cond: 4. SOLD AT $8,800. This body style is not my favorite—it's a little Benz built in a day when its utilitarian styling had been unchanged for years. That said, price paid has to be the top of the market.

So-so paint and chrome, tired interior. Black paint below the doors not a good sign. Lippman Collection. Cond: 3-. SOLD AT $19,800. The 2600 is an open-air tourer and should not be mistaken for a performance car They rusted badly, as well, so finding a complete, running one is becoming more difficult.

Later steering wheel, console and Mercedes mag wheels. Said to have been customized by AMG. Cond: 4. SOLD AT $31,350. A custom Benz. A scary Benz. Another example of a car that has most likely had thousands upon thousands of dollars in custom work thrown at it, yet sold for less than a decent car in stock condition might have brought. Taking notes? #46-1979 PORSCHE 928 Coupe. S/N 9289201390. Sable brown/saddle leather and conditioning, Sony AM/FM cassette. Borrani wire wheels. Not the best fit and finish, good paint, good chrome, gap problems abound. Cond: 3-. SOLD AT $60,500. A no-sale at $70,000 at RM's 2001 Amelia Island sale. While a cut coupe struggled to sell at $31,050 across town at the Bonham sale, this real Spyder brought the maximum amount expectedfor condition. A lot of car for the money. #49-1979 ALFA ROMEO VELOCE Spider. S/N AR115410005482. Black/saddle condition. Qualifies as a preservation car. Believed to have been driven less than 1,000 miles total Embodiment of "barn find." Cond: 6+. SOLD AT $104,500. One of the highlights of the sale, with lots and lots of pre-auction interest.

Market Reports added. Older restoration. Paint has needs, brass complete but is in need of some serious polishing. Plenty of patina, loads of room for restoration that should not be done again. Cond: 3-. SOLD AT $28,600. Pricing for brass era cars seems to be all over the place, with the large, big-name tourers fetching well over the expected bids, and the Fords and their low-priced competitors in the dirt. This Carter did well. #7-1914 FORD MODEL T Touring. S/N 32297722. Black/black leather. LHD. Twoowner car, restored in 1998. White rubber painted chassis and fenders. Good wheels, poor chrome. Restored in 1992. Seats seven. Cond: 4-. SOLD AT $12,650. This Ford drew interest because it's a woody, while the more valuable and nicer examples drew less interest. The fact that body styles can make a huge difference in values was nicely illustrated here, where less car brought essentially the same money. #39-1929 DUESENBERG J Berline. Body by Bohman & Schwartz. S/N 2143. Gold/tan cloth. LHD. Odo: 24,709 miles. First in Class, 1997 Pebble Beach, very well preserved since. Blackhawk - Hershey, PA lent throughout, with only slight age-related flaws since restoration. Cond: 2+. SOLD AT $104,500. Sold for well below the cost of a restoration, but not the flavor of the week in coachbuilding styles. A great buy for the long-term investor or museum; not much public interest. #15-1935 PACKARD 1207 Coupe. S/N 903766. Dark brown/brown cloth. LHD. Odo: 60,140 miles. 12-cylinder. The poster child for Firestone tires on blue wood spoke wheels. Looks like approximately 2,000 road miles on a former #1 car. Will detail to be better. Very good paint and brass. Complete. Cond: 2-. SOLD AT $12,650. Bought for well less than half the price of its recent restoration. Anyone interested in an "Adopt a Model T" club to find good homes for these out-of-favor cars? Cheap, and a bargain for all that brass. #30-1923 STUTZ BEARCAT Roadster. S/N 13439. Yellow and black/red leather. LHD. Odo: 59,768 miles. One-owner Virginia car for Some paint flaws only visible under fluorescent light. Excellent interior and chrome. Known ownership history. Cond: 2+. SOLD AT $343,750. This is a very nice car; rebodied, and with a good history. It is not a phaeton or roadster; and not the most beautiful of body styles. It is, however, a great buy on a very important car #60-1931 DUESENBERG J Disappearing Top Roadster. Body by Murphy. S/N 2414. Eng.# J395. Tan/brown leather. LHD. Odo: 44,255 miles. Paint, chrome, leather, wood are older restorations. All the usual things that can and do go wrong are present. Bad colors, chrome deteriorating, some chips and paint turning bad. A driver ready to tour. No national show-winning potential here. Cond: 4. SOLD AT $75,900. Sold on a bill of sale from the executor of an estate. Combined with all the visible problems present, should have provided for a bargain sale. No such luck This pretty and rare Packard found a new home at a full-market price, given its condition. #18-1938 LINCOLN ZEPHYR V12 Lim- ousine. S/N H64276. Dark blue/brown leather and cloth. LHD. Odo: 43,061 miles. Sliding 40 years. Dual rearmounted spares, large fitted trunk. Very good paint, fenders unmarked, one unfortunate rub spot on driver's door. Excellent brass. Chipped wheels are the only low point. Cond: 2-. SOLD AT $58,300. Only five 1923 Bearcats are believed to exist. A bargain at this bid, as replacing it will cost more or get you less. With the exception of the wheels, which are an easy fix, this Bearcat is ready for touring or shows. Well done. #56-1926 FORD WOODY Wagon. S/N 14408038. Black/black vinyl. LHD. All mechanical devices original, with electric starter added. A decent wood body—replicated using original Ford molds—on a vacuum-cleaner- 36 Fitted with a sterling silver vanity case, smoking set, hassocks, throw pillows, intercompartment telephone and assist loops. Restored by Fran Roxas. Meadow Brook, CCCA history. Excel- Absolutely all original, never touched. Miles are said to be from new, which is believable. Very nice throughout. Lots of pre-auction interest. Car came with usual "owner went to war, never returned" story. In this case, it is likely the truth. Cond: 2-. SOLD AT $36,300. Just about twice what the guide books say, and just about right. An example of what some call 'find another" pricing, as in "What's it worth? Find another!" You won't, so we'll call this market correct. Sports Car Market all holding up well. Some light scratches on trunk rack. No golf club door. Twice a member of the Imperial Palace Collection. Has appeared in many movies. Cond: I-. SOLD AT $737,000. Cars do not get much bigger, more handsome or more desirable than a Murphy-bodied Model J Disappearing Top roadster.

Burgundy, cane/ black leather, tan cloth. LHD. Odo: 725 miles glass division. division. Very good paint now shows some chips and one or two wavy areas. Rear compartment is largely original. Cond: 3+. SOLD AT $24,200. This rare body style (130 were built) is best described as a personal limousine, or what would be referred to as a "town sedan" today. Well bought for a Lincoln collector or museum; not too much interest among general collectors. #37-1941 BUICK SPECIAL Sedanette. S/N 14171941. Eng.# 44371251. Gold and brown/gray cloth. LHD.

Rare column-shift manual transmission. lection. Cond: 4+. SOLD AT $16,775. A perfect example of a car that some like more than others. The buyer, a savvy dealer/collector, might,* the dents, respray the body and detail the motor and trunk to within an inch of its life. Then it will look more "original" than now. #I2-1952 FORD CRESTLINE VICTORIA Coupe. S/N B20A137278. Light teaUgreen vinyl and cloth. LHD. Odo: 57,999 miles. National Senior first place winner.

Appears to have been sympathetically used and taken care of. Cond: 3+. SOLD AT $36,300. Another postwar car going at twice the upper end of the book values. Is the Hershey Auction the place to sell these cars or are the stars just aligned rightfor Sedanettes? My guess is the former over the latter #8-1949 CADILLAC SERIES 75 IMPERIAL Seven-Passenger Limousine. Body by Fleetwood. S/N 497506106. Black/tan broadcloth. LHD. Odo: 9,342 miles.

One of 595 seven-passenger limousines delivered in 1949. Not too much call for a 1949 Caddy limo, as collectors looking for one are few and far between.

SOLD AT $79,200. 1956 was the final year for the high-quality restoration. Excellent paint and chrome, some problems with driver's door fit. Original interior too nice to replace, but far from mint. Armrests are a different color than the seats. Cond: 3+. SOLD AT $23,100. Bought by a dealer and SCM reader for his customer—a made-toorder buy. About $1,000 worth of detail, fit and redye work will make this one stand up and show much better Dealer paid well above price guide values, so is it time for an update? #5-1953 FORD CRESTLINE VICTORIA Coupe.

The 1957 was the last of the two-seater 'Birds until the reintroduction of the 2001 model. Inca Gold, a rare color (i.e., nobody wanted it then), isn't a big help in selling now.

A very good restoration, but not a perfect one. Often when cars are restored, multiple problems show themselves within the first 1,000 miles. This car still needs some minor sorting.

All of these are very special cars which are distinguished by heir respective fine design, high engineering standards and superior workmanship." www.classiccarclub.org 4■K  Sports Car Market hen first conceived, RM's Waldorf-Astoria event was held during the same weekend as the Louis Vuitton Classic. The mix of a high-end concours and auction has proven successful at Meadow Brook, Monterey and Amelia; in 2000 it worked in New York City as well, as RM hammered sold $6.5m. However, the Vuitton concours has moved on (you'll have to ask organizer and SCM'er Murray Smith just exactly where it's going to land), and the events of September 11, 2001, also caused RM to lose some momentum. While $2m in sales is a respectable figure, you have to wonder just what it costs to put on an event in NYC. Further, one imagines the resources of RM are stretched by the efforts of holding Meadow Brook in early August, the flagship Monterey auction in August, and then a NYC event in late September. And I don't mean to sound like a broken record, but the continued economic uncertainty is clearly causing bidders to be a little slower in pulling bidding paddles out of their pockets. On the plus side, the Waldorf-Astoria ballroom setting was spectacular and the atmosphere and attendance was certainly up to par. The cars are on display for one day and that seems to work out fine; just get an early start if you want to look them all over. There was about a 50/50 mix of American and European offerings. Overall, quality was respectable with a few true gems, and reserves seemed reasonable. Top sales price went to the 1962 Ferrari 400 Superamerica, a decent older restoration selling at a market-correct $357,500. One of the few lots that sold for unusually strong money was a heavily patinated, documented 3,487-mile 1954 Jaguar XK 120SE roadster, which brought a whopping $82,500. One of the best buys of the auction, a 1939 Buick Roadmaster Convertible Sedan, while not a steal at $58,300, was bought for at least half the cost of its recent superb restoration.

Silver gray metallic/gray. Built by Dr. Clyde Kwok of Quebec, styled by Steven Lee. Cond: 3+. NOT SOLD AT $44,000. An oddball car (just 150 originally built) that some say drives like an XK 120.

Both doors R41 - New York, NY many rust-producing water traps in the Park Ward bodies, finding good examples today is a difficult task.

LHD. Odo: 3,487 miles. Original paint still shines, but is fair, most panels wavy, especially rocker panels. Recent repaint is okay. Average chrome, soft top looks good.

Silver - Reno, NV Silver's Hot August Nights auction should be considered the best indicator in the world for the value of street rods. It is helped by being part of an enormous street rod event, which includes a swap meet with several hundred vendors, performances by rock 'n' roll oldies acts such as Jan and Dean, and the opportunity to go cruising in wide-open spaces (read that as "lack of revenue-hungry, ticket-wielding state troopers"). During the event, Virginia Street, the main drag through downtown Reno, looks like it has been lifted directly from the set of "American Graffiti." Silver Auctions Reno, Nevada August 8-11, 2002 Auctioneers: Mitch Silver; Bob Graham, Steve Dorsey and Paul Baer Number of automotive lots: 790 Number of automotive lots sold: 441 Sale rate: 56% Sale total: $10,280,105 High: Lot #319, 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air convertible, sold at $107,100, including buyer's premium Buyer's premium included on sold lots: 5% Report by Terry Parkhurst Market opinions by Keith Martin in italics W hat Monterey represents to those who recall seeing Phil Hill in his prime, Hot August Nights represents to those who have fond memories of Don Garlits waiting for the lights at the drag strip to turn green. The world's largest hot rod show, Hot August Nights is held in the "biggest little city in the world," Reno, Nevada. The event, founded in 1986, celebrated "Sweet 16" this year, with a Silver auction having been a part of it for the last twelve. With more than $10m in sales, this was Mitch Silver's highest total yet, and one that several of the Monterey auction companies could look at with envy—especially when you compare the cost of hosting an event at Pebble Beach to putting one on in Reno. For the first time, Mitch held separate VIP auctions on Friday and Saturday evening for high-quality, high-dollar cars. He still ran his normal offerings during the day from Thursday to Sunday.

SOLD AT $34,650. Seats more people than an SUV, looks cooler than a minivan and Models Prints & Posters Books Automobilia & More Unlike last year, where most of the highdollar sales were hot rods, some of the largest this year were stock American iron. The highdollar sale was a 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air convertible, complete with 23 factory options, including Rochester fuel injection, which sold for $107,100. Two Hemi 'Cudas, one real and the other a nicely done clone, brought good money at $95,550 and $75,600 respectively. Judging by this sale, 1967-69 Camaros are also gaining in value, bringing from $23,100 for a 1967 coupe to $60,900 for a 1969 COPO Camaro. Silver has worked hard year in and year out since 1990, slowly building to the current level. Clearly, the straightforward way he runs his event has brought him a good reputation in the hot rod and muscle car community. Collectors vote with their consignments and their bids, and in both cases at Hot August Nights, they voted for the Silver Auction Company.—T.P. JAPANESE #745-1971 HONDA 600 Sedan. S/N N/A.

The 600 was the first car Honda sold in the US. When this little guy was rolled onto the block, Mitch Silver and others trundled out of it like clowns in an old circus skit. Best bet is to remove the engine and give the car to the kids for the soapbox derby. AMERICAN #95-1937 FORD T12 HOT ROD Pickup. S/N 18333360. Yellow with purple flames/ white. LHD.

With the help of their son, Brandon, Collector Cars International has become an efficient operation with consistently good sales results, a reasonable size and a pleasant venue. With the pending sale of the Mel Tillis Theater, the present location of the event, the Collector Cars International Branson auction is looking for a new home in this Ozarks vacation destination. Cox has a commitment to use the present location for next April's sale, but with the conversion of the property into church use, the press is going to come soon for a new home. Notable sales from this fall's event include a decent 1957 MGA convertible that went for $15,960, a 1932 Auburn 8-100A that brought $64,050, a 1967 big-block Corvette coupe that reached $33,075, and a tired 1969 Shelby GT 500 that earned $43,050. J Cox at times appeared flustered by some of the consignments that showed up for the sale. Cars that had been described to him as "original" somehow had morphed into "modified" or "hot rodded," thereby limiting their salability. Dealers who had promised one car had at times substituted another. "I think I might require detailed photos of each car before accepting it into the auction," remarked Cox about future sales. As the car auction market continues to mature, auction companies will no doubt require more accurate representation from consignors, and that will be to the benefit of everyone involved. The more assurance auction companies have about condition, the more they can properly promote what they are going to be offering, and the more satisfied bidders will be with what they have to choose from. The overall sale result, up slightly from last fall's successful $2.2m total, was especially impressive in a market at large that now appears to be just treading water.—D.K.

• 1971 Montreal Chassis number: AR 1426425 Engine number: AR 00564 01566 I nspired by an Alfa-based Bertone styling exercise, penned by Marcello Gandini, that had been exhibited at the 1967 Montreal Expo, the two-seater Montreal coupe debuted at the Geneva Salon in 1970. Unlike the Expo prototype that used Alfa's 1.6liter twin-cam four-cylinder engine, the production Montreal used a "civilized" 2593cc version of the 133 sports racer's four-cam V8. Air vents behind the doors suggested a mid-engined layout like the T33's, but as installed in the Montreal the dry-sumped engine was front-mounted and drove the rear wheels via a five-speed ZF gearbox. Detuned for road use, this superb, race-pedigreed power unit produced 200 hp at 6,500 rpm courtesy of electronic ignition and Spica mechanical fuel injection. The Montreal's running gear was sourced from the contemporary Giulia 1750 GTV, comprising independent front suspension and a live rear axle, plus disc brakes all around. Aided by its slippery, fastback body styling, the Montreal was good for a top speed of 137 mph and, in spite of a hefty price tag, proved very popular-3,925 examples found customers between 1970 and 1977. Left-hand drive like the majority of Montreals, this example has formed part of an important private collection for the past ten years and is presented in excellent condition. The car is finished in red with black interior, and is fitted with an Airco air conditioning system. This rarely seen and highly desirable Italian Grand Routier is offered with details of service history and previous owners. This car sold for $13,993, including buyer :s premium, at the Bonhams Goodwood Revival, held September 6, 2002. Montreal ownership is stressful, yet rewarding. When I bought my Montreal some 12 years ago. I found myself in that pre-Internet era surrounded by snake-oil prescribing Montreal doctors and greedy parts sellers. Years produced  Number produced  Original list price  SCM Price Guide  The advent of e-mail and the Internet, increasing the availability ofreliable information, has made Montreal ownership much less angst-ridden. Cures for the car's weaknesses and idiosyncrasies are becoming more well known: the engine water pump jackshaft bushing replacement, the weak forged alloy transmission shift forks and easily cracked steering box mountingflanges are afew of the more serious issues that can now be dealt with relatively easily Bruce Taylor, an enthusiastic Monti owner from Geneva, Switzerland, has created a comprehensive Montreal resource, the Montreal Homepage (www.alfamontreaLinfo). Bruce also started the Montreal Digest, an e-mail list, which can be joined by visiting groups.yahoo.com/group/ alfamontreal/join. Tune-up/major service  Distributor cap  Chassis #  Engine #  Club  Web site  Alternatives  SCM Investment Rating  The Montreal has an unusual mechanical specification and is visually exciting. It is an excellent grand touring coupe, with sufficient interior space for two adults and limited luggage. The steering, while heavy at low speeds, is light and accurate when motoring along. The soft suspension makes for a comfortable ride, however the body does experience the typical Alfa cornering roll (Portlander Dave Rugh and Harvey Bailey Engineering of England have sport suspensions for the Montreal). 1972 Alfa Romeo Montreal coupe Lot #139, SIN AR1426222 Condition: 2RM Auctions; Amelia Island, FL; March 9, 2002 AInt anla at 1 111111  If purchasing a Montreal, be sure that it has its original "turbina " style wheels as they are a unique size for this application. Larger wheels and tires are ill advised, as they will overstress the steering box and affect the handling adversely as well. Only buy complete cars; the trim bits are expensive and hard to find. Run fast from cars with visible rust and/or evidence of home-boy accident repairs. You're buying a car outside of the collector mainstream in the first place; don't make it worse by picking up a bad one. The driving posture is typical of Italian cars: arms outstretched to reach the wheel with knees bent outward andfeet offset from center. The clutch is heavy, and the ZF gearbox notchy. As with all Alfas, a proper warm-up of the engine and drivetrain is essential for long life. Be sure that your mechanic has an excellent understanding of Spica fuel injection; you don't want to finance his Montreal education. 1971-77 3,925 approx. $9,000 $14,000-$16,000 $1,500 $400 Bulkhead panel Left rear of crankcase Alfa Romeo Owners Club, c/o Shayno Geller, 10 Raskin Rd., Morristown, NJ 07960-2824 vvvvw.aroc-usa.org DeTomaso Pantera, Fiat Dino coupe This particular Montreal's sale price was right in line with the SCM Price Guide. For a similar car in the States, a similar sale price could be expected with motivated buyers present. Excellent Montreals typically sell with little advertising, most often by word-of-mouth through the local or national club. There are plenty of rats and fright pigs out there, lurking for unsuspecting, uninformed buyers. I wholeheartedly support SCM's assessment of the Montreal in the collector car world: it will languish near the bottom of the collector car mar- ket. Future substantial increases in market value are quite unlikely, as many collectors who remember the Montreal at its introduction have moved onto higher-tiered collectibles. Younger collectors may not be cognizant of Alfa Romeo and the Montreal, and may avoid it. This leaves a small pool of prospective owners, found mainly through the Alfa club. The clutch of 100 or so US Montrealisti form a small, tight-knit community. However all the problems are soon forgotten as 1 accelerate the car through its five gears while listening to the intoxicating growl of the engine and song of the exhaust. When the car is running right, the mechanical woes are left behind and the pleasures of being behind the wheel of an affordable exotic come to the fore.—Doug Zaitz• (Historical and descriptive information provided by Bonhams) Comparables Coys; London, England; March 1, 1998 CnIsi  t7 1972 Alfa Romeo Montreal coupe Lot #234, S/N AR1425460 Condition: 3

Etceterini and Friends Profile 1961 OSCA 1600 GT Coupe Chassis number: 0093 rothers Ernesto, Ettore and Bindo Maserati, the vagabonds of the exotic car world, had sold their family company in 1947 to the Orsi family. They then returned from Modena to their original manufacturing home in Bologna where they established the company first known as "OSCA Maserati," and subsequently just as "OSCA." B Under this acronym—today so familiar to aficionados of fine Italian high-performance cars— they produced an initial series of small 1100cc sports racing cars, but speedily developed a big 4.5-liter Formula 1 V 12 power unit that was intended to update existing Maserati 4CLT Grand Prix cars to compete in modern Formula 1 conditions. In 1952 they produced a Formula 2 singleseater racing car, driven by Louis Chiron and Eli Bayol, but it was their sports racing cars that truly excelled in every available capacity class from 750cc through 1100 to 1500 and 2-liter competition. Their greatest success came in 1954 when their Briggs Cunninghamentered MT4, co-driven by Stirling Moss and Bill Lloyd, actually won the Sebring 12 Hours outright. The OSCA Tipo 1600 GT model was introduced in 1960. Its wheelbase was 2250mm, front track was 1270mm and rear track was 1218mm. The engine was a four-cylinder unit with an 80mm bore and a 78rtun stroke, displacing 1568cc and quoted as producing 95 bhp in basic GT form. The GT Veloce model produced 125 bhp, and a GT Sport version produced 140 bhp. The OSCA 1600 GT was considered ultra-modern in period. This particular example features the legendary Zagato "Double Bubble" form of aerodynamic coachwork, which yielded practical headroom provided by separately domed roof "bubbles" while still achieving minimum aerodynamic cross-section. Years produced  S/N 0093 has spent several years as part of a major Midwest collection in company with many of the most iconic cars of American competition history. In this ownership it has benefited from what is described as a thorough restoration of its body and engine, and we are advised that it runs well. This car sold for $90,500, including buyer 's premium, at the Bonhams Quail Lodge sale, August 17, 2002. Original list price  SCM Price Guide  Tune up/major service  Distributor cap  Chassis #  Engine #  Club  Alternatives  SCM Investment Grade  By the time the 1600 GT was born, the Maserati brothers had ceded control of their company yet again, this time to Count Agzista of MV Agusta motorcycle fame. Has there ever been a family so good at mechanical innovation and so hopeless at business management? It appears that the idea behind this car was to make it a high-performance, road-going GT that would appeal to a large group of buyers. In fact, it was OSCA 's swan song. The 1600 GT had a typical OSCA chassis (ladder tube frame) and engine (four-cylinder twin-cam), but there were some innovations, like four-wheel Girling disc brakes and independent suspension all around. The engine was offered in four states of tune, starting with GT (single 36mm Weber carb, 95 hp @ 6,000 rpm) and ending with GTS (twin-plug head, twin 45mm Webers, 140 hp @ 7,200 rpm). Most ofthe cars had fourspeed gearboxes, but a five-speed box was homologated and used on competition cars. Three coachbuilders clothed the car: Zagato, Boneschi and Fissore. There is some controversy about the number of cars produced. The chassis numbers start with 001 and end with 00127, yet it appears, when factory records are consulted, that only 56 cars were made. have reason to believe there were more. For instance, while the factory records indicate that only two Boneschi-bodied cars were built, 1 have personally owned more than that number Number produced .... at least 56(32 by Zagato, 2 by Boneschi, and the rest by Fissore) $7,000 As an aside, the Boneschi cars are quite ugly and very modestly priced the Fissore cars are merely bland, but still value-challenged. The design that everyone wants is the Zagato, which came in three distinct configurations: smooth roofiine a la the Fiat Abarth Bialbero, classical Zagato double bubble, and a dramatic double bubble with air vents that end right above the rear window. Chassis number 0093 is of this last configuration. 1958-61 $65,000-$85,000 $500 $30 By right front suspension pick-up point On the block below carburetors Fiat OSCA Registry, 36 Maypole Dr., Chigwell, Essex, United Kingdom Fiat Abarth 1000 Bialbero, Porsche 356 S90 I am reasonably familiar with this car, as in the early '90s 1 sold a brand new five-speed gearbox to its owner The car was part of a significant collection, owned by a charming gentleman, and housed near Chicago. We spoke occasionally as 0093 underwent a nut-and-bolt restoration, and was fully sorted out to be driven. All the Zagato-bodied OSCAs came with Amadori magnesium alloy wheels, which are not onlyfragile but also irreplaceable. The owner was aware of that fact and had close copies made out of aluminum for everyday use. The engine (0090) was of the GTV type (single-plug, twin 42 or 45 Webers, 125 hp @ 7,000 rpm) and was professionally rebuilt and improved. A year or two ago, the car changed hands. The original Amadori wheels were not offered with the car at Bonhams, but the car looked as lovely as ever In my opinion these Zagato-bodied OSCAs should be worth more, as they are the only pure OSCA that can both be driven comfortably on the street and vintage raced as well. Alas, the market has spoken. This car is a great example and was bought for a very reasonable price.

German Car Profile 2001 Porsche Boxster S Chassis number: WP0CB298X1U662397 As described by the seller on eBay Motors: T his 2001 Porsche Boxster S is in great condition. It is Metallic Silver with black leather interior. It has AM/FM stereo, CD, cruise control, power windows, all available airbags, dual power seats, power mirrors, and wind screen. The engine is a six-cylinder S with a six-speed manual transmission. There is a remaining factory warranty. Chrome "turbo look" wheels are fitted and the tires are in excellent condition. The interior and exterior are in great shape, with less-thannormal wear. The car has 2,871 miles. This Boxster, item #I864044565, sold on eBay at no reserve for a price of $38,900, with 25 bids, on October 1, 2002. This price is so far below even the dealer wholesale market that in my view something may be amiss with this car or the sale. Alternatively, Boxsters may simply be very soft right now, due to a confluence of factors such as the economy, the nearing of winter, and an excessive supply of both new and used Boxsters. The fact that Porsche North Am erica sent out Boxster discount coupons to every PCA member makes clear the pliability in new Boxster prices. This weakness translates Into poor used-car prices as well. When Boxsters were new in 1997 and demand far exceeded supply, you could buy a new Boxster at list, drive it for a while, and sell it for about what you paid. The same was true for the Boxster S when introduced in 2000, but not for long. In today's market, Boxsters are valued as used cars. They are depreciating, in some cases rather rapidly, and miles hurt as they accumulate. Why are Boxsters depreciating so quickly? Over 120,000 Boxsters have been produced, and they are still cranking them out. From a corporate standpoint, it has been by far the most successful Porsche ever; because it has sold in vast volumes at big margins. As a new car the allure may be fading a bit. But as a collectible cat; they are nowhere. Due to the high unit volume, it will take a long time for these cars to become scarce, and until they do, they will continue a long slide downhill in value. Then there is the eBay effect. I have long been a proponent of buying and selling parts on eBay. There is nothing quite as much fun as flipping on the computer and having a Porsche swap meet up and running 24/7/365. Do people rip you off on eBay? Sure, some do. Can you get a screaming good deal? Yep, if you're lucky and clever Just as at any swap meet, there are good guys and bad guys. When it comes to like-new used exotic cars however; the formula changes a bit because of the presence of dealers in the buyer 's pool. They are always scouting for inventory, and their bids tend to keep the prices of late-model iron at or near wholesale. 2001 Porsche Boxster S Lot #1871756004, S/N WP0CB29891U660740 Condition: NR eBay Motors; November 8, 2002 Sold at $42,000 Comparables  Years produced  Number produced  Original list price  SCM Price Guide  Tune-up/major service  Distributor cap  1997-present 120,000 and counting $51,600 $40,000-$50,000 $600 $42 Chassis # ...On horizontal bulkhead under front hood Engine #  Club  Stamped into alloy engine block Porsche Club of America, Web site  5530 Edgemont Dr., Alexandria, VA 22310 www.pca.org Alternatives  SCM Investment Grade Mercedes SLK, BMW Z3, Nissan 350Z, Honda S2000 But is this car; with ultra low miles and at $38,900, representative of other used Boxster S cars on the market? I have scanned the national market and found the cheapest 2001 S to have an asking price of $46,995. The average price, among the eight cars I located, was about $48,500. The cheapest often 2000 Boxster S models I located was $42,500, and it had 18,000 miles. Why was this one about $10,000 cheaper than the average 2001 S? 1 don't know. Why didn't any dealers bid the car higher? For a Boxster S with these low miles to be worth this little raises redflags to me. Has the car been badly damaged? (The listing didn't mention damage, and the Catfax report was clean.) It is hard to understand why a dealer would sell a car for what appears to be far less than he could getfor it at wholesale. Are Boxster S models really sliding in value? Did this sale actually go through as it appears? We don't know. Normally in this case we would simply contact the buyer But since the seller selected a 'private sale," the identities of the bidders are kept secret. If this is a straight, no-stories car that really did sell, at first glance it appears that someone got a great deal on a Boxster S, and put it in their garage well below today's market value. Of course, with late-model cars today's price is surely higher than it will be tomorrow—Jim Schrager• 2001 Porsche Boxster Lot # 187 1826637, S/N WPOCA29811U621756 Condition: NR eBay Motors; November 9, 2002 Sold at $35,500

Porsche Gesprach / Jim Schrager 911 Turbos The Wastegate Opens L ike most enthusiasts, Porsche 9 I 1 Turbo owners can be rabid in their adulation of their cars. Given that my September article (page 59) about the Turbo I own painted the car as a complicated, difficult machine to live with, I braced myself for a flood of negative responses. Instead, I was pleasantly surprised by the rational, reasoned tone of most of the exchanges. Below is a sampling. Dear Mr. Schrager: I very much enjoyed your article on your 1976 930. I bought one a few months ago and your observations concur with mine. 1 had driven a 1985 Carrera almost dailyfor years. After buying a new BMW M5 as the family sedan, the idea of more horsepower in a 911 seemed desirable. So I reluctantly sold the Carrera, which 1 realize now was both extremely reliable and inexpensive to operate, and bought a 1976 Turbo with 35,000 miles and complete records. Like yours, it is silver with a black leather interior Right away I realized the gear ratios were awkward and that the brakes did not feel as strong as in the 911. The Carrera had usable torque from 2,200 rpm on up in second and third gears; the 930 never seems comfortable below 3,500 rpm in any gear At first, it wasn't that fun to drive and I really regretted selling the 911. Over the past few months I've become accustomed to the 930 and am just beginning to enjoy driving it. It does get to 100 mph quickly, and all that rubber hides the bit of understeer I had to work around in the 911. By the way, unlike the '85 Carrera, this car will never be a daily driver, as it is licensed and insured as an antique vehicle.—S.F., via e-mail My response: It is interesting to think of a Porsche Turbo as an antique vehicle, isn't it? When I drive our Turbo for several days in a row I get used to it and think, "Heck, this is kind of fun, I should drive this car more." Then I get into one of our early Porsches, say a 1971 911S, or my 356B Awkward gearshift, and everyone knows it. Super 90 roadster, or even a 1973 911T and realize how light and responsive those cars are in comparison to the Turbo. The Turbo just isn't that enjoyable to drive. It's easy to understand why we see so many lowmileage Turbos out there. S.E responds: I agree! I recently called the guy who bought my 1985 Carrera and asked him to sell it back to me. Dear Mr. Schrager: I have had a low-mileage (less than 30,000) 1977 Turbo for sale for many months and have had very few lookers. I would think my asking price of $23,000 is in the ballpark. Ifmy car isn ? worth the low end of your range, what is? And how can one be worth $35,000 to $45,000 as you mentioned in your article?—B.Z, via phone Antique Automobile Insurance Agency 1-888-ANTIQUE (1-888-268-4783) www.jctaylor.com December, 2002  61

Dear B.Z.: Don't feel too bad about taking awhile to sell your Turbo. They have long been in oversupply. I remember in the mid'80s, after none had been officially imported for several years, seeing mint 1979 US model Turbos sitting around unused, unloved and unsold for months, even years. It can take some time to sell any early Turbo, even a nice clean one with verified records and low miles. By "early Turbo" I mean cars with the original body style, built from 1976 to 1989. This includes the 1989 cars with five-speed transmissions, which bring a pretty good premium, and also cars between 1986 and 1988, after the Turbo was brought back into the United States. For a Turbo to bring more than the Price Guide's $25,000 it has to be a very special car, with low miles, original paint and excellent records. Best bet is to have a history of not being hot-rodded. It often seems that the greater the upgrades, the lower the desirability. Many upgrades, especially those with non-Porsche parts, may have the potential to hurt the reliability and durability of what is already a rather high-performance package. Remember, our Price Guide is for a #2 car, and a true #1 car can bring a substantial premium over the #2.

Here is an example of the considerable e-mail traffic the Turbo piece elicited: "I'm not quite sure what the Sports Car Market piece was all about, as I just drove my friend's 930, complete with a bigger turbo, hot cams, a B+B sport exhaust, a later five-speed gearbox and an enlarged intercooler I can tell you it was a very fast car" My response: My column was all about driving a stock 930. While I realize there are many modifications that can make the cars faster, these changes usually decrease reliability and durability. Further, most modifications ultimately hurt the value of collectible cars. Collectors tend to value stock cars, so a report on how a stock 930 actually drives was the focus of my column. The Guru Weighs In Bruce Anderson is perhaps the most widely known technical expert among Porsche Club members. He has been technical chairman of the Porsche Club of America, is currently the Technical Editor of Excellence magazine and has written the definitive book about all mechanical aspects of the 911, Porsche 911 Performance Handbook (which is on the "must have" reading list for Porsche enthusiasts). He wrote: Dear Jim: I was surprised to see a Turbo among the Porsches in your stable.. for all the reasons mentioned in your column. I always tell people who think they want a Turbo to drive one and see if they like it. They will either love it or hate it. 1 think people who love Turbos are a bit masochistic and enjoy scaring themselves to death. I used to have a whole bunch of customers who owned them, and they were always doing something to make them even less driveable so they could continue to scare themselves. The first Turbo I really liked was the 993, and I love the 996.—Bruce Anderson, via e-mail Porsches, like Ferraris, Astons and other exotics, come in many flavors, from easy-to-live-with and reliable to razor-edged performance models that will turn on you and take a bite at the least provocation. While the 930 is not a Porsche for the faint of heart, it stands as a rough-hewn way to go from point A to point B at a very rapid rate of speed. I'm not saying don't buy an early 911 Turbo, rather, I'm just saying be aware that you're getting a high degree of performance in a package that requires a great deal of skill on the part of the driver.• Next Month's Market Reports: RM Classic Cars - Novi, MI McCormick - Palm Springs, CA Mecum - Pheasant Run, IL Silver - Portland, OR Kruse - Dallas, TX You can't trust them with just anyone.

American Car Profile 1913 Mercer Type 35J Raceabout Chassis number: 1281 T he legendary T-head Mercer Raceabout was one of the most significant cars produced during the glorious Brass Age. The enthusiasm shared by those fortunate few owners and admirers who have experienced the thrill of a Raceabout has elevated these pioneering sports cars to mythical status. The 300-c.i. four-cylinder engine had massive 21/4-inch valves, high-lift cams, a high compression ratio, and generous and efficient intake/exhaust manifolding. This was mated to a beautifully engineered Brown & Lipe gearbox, with three speeds for 1911 and 1912, and four speeds for 1913 and 1914, with a multiple-disc clutch. The drive unit was set down in a frame to lower the center of gravity on the already low-slung chassis, which was clothed in long, swooping fenders, raked cowl and steering column, and twin rear spare tires. Is there a better example of form following function? The T-head Mercer Raceabout was the first mass-produced dual-purpose sports and racing car. Indeed, many Mercers were taken right off the showroom floor to a race track where, with their fenders, runningboards and lighting equipment quickly removed, they would frequently set lap records, defeating cars with much larger engines. As Mercer Chief Engineer Finley R. Porter recalled in an interview with pioneer collector Henry Austin Clark, Jr. in the 1950s, "We sold racing cars to the public." The best drivers always gravitate to the best cars and Mercer was no exception: Ralph DePalma, Spencer Wishart, Caleb Bragg, Eddie Pullen, Hughie Hughes and Barney Oldfield were a few of the stars of the era— not to mention the many private amateur sportsmen who were victorious behind the wheels of Mercers. If the phenomenal race record of the Mercer was not enough proof of its worth, consider the list of respected collectors who have chosen to own a 1-head Raceabout: Bill Harrah, Henry Austin Clark, Alec Ulmann, Sam Scher, Peter Helck, James Melton, Ralph Buckley, Ken Purdy, Herb Royston, Miles Collier, David Uihlein, Fred Hoch, ■ George Wingard, Phil Hill, Robert Petersen, Roger Ellis and Briggs Cunningham—many of them own- Original list price  ing more than one example.  Chassis number 1281 is one of the most original Mercer Raceabouts in existence. It is believed that this car was converted to electric lighting very early in its life and it is conceivable that the origi -  nal dealer could have done this. This car was pur-   Club  chased by Oliver Frederick (Fred) Hiscock of Alternatives  Southampton, Long Island in about 1919 from  - Years produced  Number produced  Tune up/major service  Distributor cap costChassis #  - This car sold for $865,500, including buyer's premium, at Christie 's Pebble Beach auction held August 18, 2002. Not only did it sell for $865,500, but it returned to the family from whom Bill Ruger had bought it in 1981, making a neat full circle on its history, albeit at a price. But that the way people feel about T-head Mercer Raceabouts. Back in April 1999 Christie 's auctioned another authentic 1913 Type 35J Raceabout for $926,500. It is now a centerpiece car in the Petersen Automotive Museum. Between these two auction sales, private transactions involving T-head Raceabouts have also climbed well past the half-million mark. The cars are so desirable and scarce that some collectors have ordered "new old" examples built from the ground up by Mercer specialists. approx. 250 dition of a period self starting 1913 14 T head Raceabout , 600  - - Cast in crankcase Horseless Carriage Club of America, 49239 Golden Oak Loop, Oakhurst, CA 93644; 888/832 2374, e mail: office@hcca.org  Lawrence Griffen of Northsea, Long Island. There were possibly two  prior owners at this stage and one of them had flipped the car over in an  accident. However, it is not believed that this Raceabout has any early  racing history.  In 1969 Fred Hiscock passed away and his son John inherited the car.  Sadly, he lost it in a divorce proceeding in 1981. The fortunate purchaser  was William B. Ruger, who leapt at the opportunity to acquire one of the  great original Raceabouts.  There are approximately 17 genuine 1-head Raceabouts in existence.  Chassis number 1281 must rank among the handful of truly great  Raceabouts with an almost completely known history from new.  Brooks; Quail Lodge, California; August Sold at $167,500 SCM ID# 18401 1912 Mercer Type 35J Raceabout Lot #421, S/N 3541393 Condition: 2 Stutz Bearcat — - Besides simply being a correct, unmolested with the exception of the adstarting system — N/A for his taste in collecting great cars. Bill Ruger Plate on firewall painted this car an incorrect color (it was originally yellow), but otherwise the car was restored exactly right. $400 had a well-known history and an owner known The way these cars perform is a large part of their allure. Although rated at just 30.5 hp by formula, it's reckoned the engine actually produced more like 100 ponies. Torque at the rear wheels make throwing a Raceabout into drifis as easy as a quick poke at the outside mounted throttle. The transmission is a revelation compared to the balky gearshifts of contemporary rivals. You can snap the gear lever up and down like a modern sports car, speed-shifting at will. Steering is direct and arrow-accurate. Worth the money? If any brass era car is, it's the T-head Mercer Raceabout. It tells you volumes about the esteem in which they're held by collectors when this car brought nearly five times the amount ofan equally authentic 1916 Stutz Bearcat at the RM Monterey auction the night before.—Dave Brownell• - (Historical and descriptive information provided by Christie k) Comparables 1913 Mercer Type 35J Raceabout Lot #48, SN 35-11285 Condition: 3 27, 1999  this car Christie's; Tarrytown, New York; April 23, 1999 Sold at $926,500 SCM BA 6920

The scrap value of its aluminum bumpers alone might be almost equal to the price of the whole car. Introduced in 1974, its Bertone styling was revolutionary at the time. Nowadays, however, people often mistake its straight lines, which taper to a point at the nose, for those of a Triumph TR7—not exactly a compliment. From 1974 to 1982, when they withdrew from the US market, these cars were imported by Fiat. From 1982 to 1990 they were imported by Bertone, and that coachbuilder's badge replaced the Fiat one on the nose. Early cars had a 1300cc, transversemounted, four-cylinder engine, a Weber carburetor and four speeds. A better choice is to buy any model built after 1979, as these cars are fitted with 1500cc, Bosch fuel injection and a five-speed gearbox. The bigger engine gives you all of 75 horsepower, but since the car only weighs 2,000 pounds, you don't need much. The cars aren't only cheap, they're fun to drive. The mid-engine placement provides exceptional handling. Throw the X1/9 into a turn and it remains flat and firmly planted. The low driving position makes you feel as though you are sitting on a motorized skateboard. Stop at a drive-through ATM and you might have to stand on the built-in Cheap entry into the Wedgie Club. roll bar to access the cash machine. With its stubby 86.7-inch wheelbase and stiff suspension, the ride is choppy and every bump is noticeable. At freeway speeds, your face is well protected from wind blast. The Targa design helps keep the chassis stiff and provides some rollover protection. The rugged black fiberglass top stows under the front hood. Removing and installing it is a simple 30-second chore. Brakes are discs on all four wheels. The X1 /9's chromed exterior door handles are the same as those found on Ferrari 308 GT4s, so you can tell friends, "My car shares some parts with a Ferrari." However, I suggest buying replacement door handles using a Fiat part number, rather than a Ferrari one. Drawbacks? Engine access is poor. Space inside the cockpit is limited at best. As SCM's Mr. Kerb remarked, the only cargo you can expect to carry are pizza boxes and flounders.

Those whose girth requires the purchase of two seats on Southwest Airlines should look elsewhere for a collector car. If you're considering an X1/9, watch out for rust in the body, which is usually very apparent. And don't buy one with any mechanical needs, as the cost of a major repair will exceed the value of the car. When you drive an X1/9, prepare to be the butt of all your car collector friends' jokes.

1955 Royal Enfield Bullet Q uite possibly the antithesis of its name, the Bullet was originally intended as a slowpoke but reliable commuter bike. Like the VW Beetle, it has seen a production run of more than 50 years and is still being produced elsewhere in the world (starting in England and shifting to India). And, like the old Beetle, it enjoys cult status. With a 350cc or 500cc four-stroke, singlecylinder engine (the 350 was much more popular), a four-speed gearbox and a chain drive, the Bullet developed a loyal following due to its adequate around-town performance, stylish appearance and low operating costs. Although the 350cc Bullet is good for nearly 70 mph, it vibrates uncomfortably at such speeds, and the swingarm rear suspension's bounciness can be disconcerting. The drum brakes are weak, but aftermarket disc brake kits are relatively inexpensive. Engine output can be boosted with intake and exhaust modifications. A Bullet owner should carry a tool bag and be ready for frequent minor repairs. Typical troubles with the Bullet involved the finicky Lucas electrics and magneto ignition, and leaky engine seals. The ignition can be retrofitted with the later, more reliable coil system, but regarding the oil leaks, one Bullet expert said, -they leak like a sieve, and there isn't a lot that can be done about it." iTsAPPR Nis NI MONTHLY MYSTERY PHOTO Response Deadline December 28, 2002 The VW Beetle of two-wheelers. Ease of maintenance is a strong point for the Bullet. Everything is accessible, and owners can easily perform routine work. A major service, which includes points, condensors, spark plug, filters and valve adjustment, costs less than $50 in parts and only requires an hour of labor. The basic design and production of the Bullets being built today is still the same as in 1955, though most of the changes the British company made on the bike up to 1970 have been incorporated, along with some additional tweaks. The newer bikes have proven more reliable because of advancements in manufacturing. In the US, the new Bullet starts at $3,495. Since the original '55 Bullet was a workhorse commuter, most saw hard use and were retired decades ago. Few are around today, and those with the original engine and original equipment are becoming somewhat collectible. 0 Our photo, your caption.

The offering at their Quail Lodge last August was no exception. For example, a Rene Lalique "Tete de Coq" with a high estimate of $8,500 reached a surprising $9,200.  Two R. Lalique eagle heads, "Tete d'Aigle," were also offered and one brought a market-correct $3,450 while the other, with some repairs, sold for $2,300—about right considering the damage. A showroom model of "Whisper," the Charles Sykes-designed mascot, fell in line, selling at $8,338. This was the first of the six that were copied from the smaller original in the collection of Lord Montagu. But other items outside the Bonhams mainstays didn't fare so well. Two Pebble Beach Road Race programs, one from 1957 and the other 1955, only mustered $207 for the pair.

A very unusual Goodyear double-sided porcelain sign, in the shape of an airship, brought $1,725. However, similar signs have brought at least $1,000 more in Internet sales. With the piece shown here, Bonhams got what they expected, but it turned out to be about one-third of the actual market value. Lot #42, an unusual double-sided porcelain sign with English origins, advertised Mobiloil for all race engines. It realized $4,830, in the middle of the presale estimates of $4,500 to $5,500. However, we have recently been informed that the sign, one of three uncovered in the UK, was subsequently resold for $15,000. One of the others has had offers of $12,000, not quite enough for the seller. RECOMMENDED FOR Ali. RACE ENGINES VACUUM OIL CO , PANT LTD. Crowd wanted mascots, not signs.  Regardless of the estimates, if the right bidders had been in the room at Quail Lodge, the piece would have brought closer to market value. But those right bidders would include both Mobil Oil collectors, and also those who fancy signs with die-cut race cars (in this case, in the style of an ERA). The rare and colorful sign would have appeal to a couple of specialized collecting interests. But neither of those groups traditionally look to Bonhams for those kinds of pieces. Is there a lesson to be learned here? Maybe yes, and maybe no. On the one hand, every sale has its bargain-basement steals, and its over-market bonehead buys. No auction company—or private buyer or seller—gets it right all the time. On the other hand, if you're thinking about consigning a piece to an auction house, take a look at the types of pieces they sell and the types of collectors they attract. Just as sending your Duesenberg to RM to sell at Meadow Brook and your Maserati 300S to Christie's at Pebble makes sense, sending your Ferrari 250 TR to Silver's Hot August Nights and your Boyd Coddington roadster to Bonhams at Monterey is probably not the wisest move you could make. In an increasingly specialized market, getting top dollar for your piece means putting it in front of the right buyers with laser-like precision. •

You Write, We Read continued from page 10 Joost Gompels ofthe American 1900 Register both contacted FantasyJunction to confirm that they had examined the actual car and that it was indeed a Super Sprint. Fantasy Junction misrepresented this wonderful car for over a year! Through their ignorance, butperceived as "experts," they killed the market on this car. Obviously Christie's picked up their description, and your report did nothing to correct the mistake. place over the course of two days? Christie's, Bonhams and Russo and Steele all have sales that incorporate one evening. As a matter of fact, if you do the math based on your results, RM offered 183 cars for sale compared to Christie's 92, a net difference of one car, if you take into consideration the one-day versus two-day event. With RM selling 69%, Christie's selling 64.1%, Bonhams selling 46% and Russo and Steele selling 37%, RM's results "paying off in spades" could more accurately be seen as "they outpaced the nearest competition by 4.9%." RM's total amount for their sale was $20,030,755. Christie's totaled $10,003,880, almost exactly half the dollars for almost exactly half the number of cars. The eastern dealer got the buy of the auction: A genuine original time-warp Alfa Romeo 1900C Super Sprint at half price! How do I know all this? I bought this car in Europe from the chauffeur of the original owner, and imported it into the US. I owned it for about 10 or 12 years and showed it at Concorso Italiano, the original Santa Barbara Concours d'Elegance, and many other shows. We always drove it everywhere, and with its fivespeed column shift (only on a Super Sprint, never on a Sprint) it would run at 180 kph all day long. If I had had the money at that auction, I would have bought it back. It was the bargain of the sale!— Peter Zobian, Vintage Automobilia, Cambria, CA Peter thanks for the information. However I would argue that with the single-carb setup, the performance ofthe car would be more like that of a Sprint than a Super Sprint, making your clarification more an exercise in nomenclature than ofcapability Also, thefact that the car languished unsold at Fantasy Junction for over a year says something about the market for it, doesn't it? And 1 hardly think calling it a Sprint instead of a Super Sprint "killed its value." Some, like our Automobilia Editor Carl Bomstead, find its lines extremely attractive. Others, myself included, find the car visually challenged—ED. Dear SCM: I thoroughly enjoyed reading your Pebble Beach auction results and overviews. Is it not fair to mention, though, in comparing the four different auction houses doing business during that week, that the RM sale takes 76  I think all four of the auction houses should be commended for producing a combined $33 million in sales during an uncertain economy.—Gordon S. McCall, Monterey, CA Gordon, your math is correct. However, RM still deserves kudos for having the courage to put on a two-day auction, while the other organizations stopped at one. And by the way thanks again for a great party at the Monterey Jet Park this year—ED. Dear SCM: How disappointing to learn that Keith Martin thinks so little of the Porsche 924/ 944/968 (Auto Week, September 9, 2002). I am a big fan of these cars and take exception to many of his statements. I have owned my current 1992 968 Cabriolet for almost six years now and couldn't be happier with it. So let's touch on a few of these statements. He mentions respect at the Porsche club meetings and he couldn't be more wrong. First of all, the club is founded on respect, but let me share a story with you. I live in Connecticut and we have the third largest Porsche Club region in the country. A few years ago I entered my 968 in our annual people's choice concours and found my car up against brand new Boxsters in the "late-model Cabriolet" class. I didn't think I had a chance against these brand-new cars, which represent Porsche's latest thinking. But, as the show commenced I noticed a constant crowd around my car. My fellow Porsche owners were so impressed with my car and its beautiful engine compartment. If you've seen a 968 (and it sounds like you haven't) you know how nice a powerplant they built. I haven't seen a betterlooking one to date. As the day went on I continued to field questions and compliments and by the end of the day I had won my class and beaten the Boxsters. My car continues to be very popular among my fellow PCA members and at the many PCA events I attend. You mention "some immediate sales success" for the line. Recall that more than 100,000 944s were sold in eight years. Not bad for a "mistake." The revenues from these cars helped fuel Porsche's many endeavors throughout the '80s. My 968 is a fantastic car. It was hand-built at Stuttgart along with the 911 and 928. It has a six-speed transaxle, the VarioCam, 236 horsepower and 225 foot-pounds of torque that all combine to make it a joy to drive. Notice that the 924/ 944/968 rear transaxle design continues to be utilized in popular cars such as the C5 Corvette. And now even four-cylinder sports cars are making a return (Honda S2000). There are many positive things that came out of the 924/944/968 line and the cars continue to be popular. Visit any PCA event and you will see many 944s. As for the 968, we only have to look at the market to confirm what a great car it is. As more and more Boxsters hit the road, their values continue to depreciate. The 968s, on the other hand, continue to hold their values. A 968 was listed recently on eBay and was a no-sale at over $29k. Do you think we'll see '97 Boxsters sell at this price in 2005? I don't. I purchased my car almost six years ago and I could sell it today for more then I paid for it if I chose to. Whenever I drive my car I get many compliments from other drivers and fans and I think Martin went too far by calling it a "mistake." He should know what a mistake is; he drives an Isuzupowered Lotus. He should try out a 968 and attend a PCA event. We're proud members of PCA and proud of our cars and we get plenty of respect, just not from Martin.— Jeff Coe, Trumbull CT Jeff just a couple of clarifications here. First, 1 have seen a 968 Cabriolet. I'd rather have a Boxster anyday, as at least they don't look like poorly modified Mazda RX-7s. Second, I sold my Isuzu-powered Lotus and am now driving a chainsaw-powered Saab, a tractormotored Healey and a V8-powered Fiat Mondial.—ED. Errata The results of the Bonhams Quail Lodge sale contained in the October issue mistakenly counted the buyer's premium twice. Lot #303 and Lot #265 were also profiled in the November issue.

The November "Inside Line," page 8, neglected to acknowledge that Robert and Margie Petersen's awards were for the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. Lastly, in the November issue, page 49, a 1985 Porsche 944 was inadvertently placed in the "AirSuckers Scorecard."• Sports Car Market

iewatcn. 8.AN by Carl Bomstead he Enzo is the newest, most desirable offering from Ferrari. Only 399 are slated to be built, and all are supposedly presold to long-time Ferrari customers. Hence, it was a surprise to find one offered on eBay Motors. Seven bids were made, and the reserve of $1,200,000 (the list price is a mere $670,000) was met. The listing lasted less than a week and was pulled before the auction was scheduled to end. Why was the auction halted? While no one knows for sure, there was some speculation that Ferrari, with a policy of objecting to the resale of new models for a profit, threatened to cancel the order. Will the Enzo really bring a $500k premium when they wive? We'll know in a few months. A highly desirable Tokheim 36B restored gas pump was offered on eBay, with 19 bids pushing it to $2,849.67. The seller wouldn't let it go for that amount, and rightly so. Pumps painted in the soughtafter Mobil and Texaco brand colors have brought as much as $4,000. This pump was done in the Gulf colors of orange and blue, a less desirable combination, but should still be worth at least $3,000. T A colorful tin sign for Francisco Heaters, originating from the 1920s, was a no-sale even though 20 bids ran it to $2,119.54. I have followed automobilia for more than 20 years, and can still remember buying mine, which was found in a warehouse in Texas, for what seemed to be the huge amount of $600. Times have changed, detailed tin signs now bring much stronger money, and my significant other no longer makes snide comments about "that piece of tin you paid $600 for." The seller of the eBay sign should hold on for at least $2,500; for $3,000 I'd even consider selling him mine! With Cadillac's 100th anniversary nearly upon us, expect plenty of opportunities to go Cadillacing online. Last month a 1931 V16 Roadster, fresh from the restoration shop, failed to gamer any interest due to the $360,000 required opening bid. Considering that a convertible coupe sold for $275,000 at this year's RM Meadow Brook sale, the required opening bid should be viewed more as an owner's fantasy than a true market evaluation. A 1935 La Salle Convertible Coupe met the same fate by also asking a very aggressive $130,000 to get the bidding started; $40,000 would have been more like it, and I would suggest a reserve in the $60,000 to $70,000 range. A very desirable 1941 Series 62 Convertible received 13 bids and got to $43,200, but remained unsold. The prewar coffin-nose Cadillacs are desirable due to their driveability and performance. As a result, they are much in demand as tour cars. If as nice as described, expecting $50,000 to $70,000 as a final price wouldn't be out of line. Here are a few items that did go to new homes. EBay Motors #1865475269-1948 CADILLAC SERIES 62 CONVERTIBLE. First bid: $200. Number of bids: 43. SOLD AT: $32,000. Date sold: 10/08/2002. These finned convertibles are not as desirable as those of the prior year, as their styling is not as crisp and they don't qualify for CCCA activities. Based upon the description, the car was restored to high standards and has received limited use. Assuming no surprises materialize when the delivery truck arrives, this Cadillac was well bought, as I've seen similar cars change hands in the $35,000 to $45,000 range. 41i EBay #722444173-1937 PACKARD GREYHOUND HOOD ORNAMENT. First bid: $24.99. Number of bids: 9. SOLD AT: $152.59. Date sold: 10/15/2002. Greyhound hood ornaments are most commonly associated with Lincolns from the early '30s but those were of much higher quality than this worn example, which was "supposedly a 1937 Packard radiator cap," according to the seller. It is difficult for me to mention this poorly made mascot in the same sentence as the revered Packard name, but the stretch resulted in the seller getting about $100 more than the piece was worth. EBay Motors #1866214443 - 1962 BORGWARD COUPE. First bid: $5,601. Number of bids: 1. SOLD AT: $5,601. Date sold: 10/11/2002 This was the second time around for this German-made car, and it matched the high bid from the first, unsold, listing. The TS versions with the optional speed kit were rather sporty, but the pedestrian four-cylinder offered here took a pokey 20 seconds to do 0-60.

#694-1957 JAGUAR XK SS The body and engine numbers remained unchanged (H 2072 and E2082-9 respectively) The car was delivered by Jaguar Midwest Distributors Inc., Indianapolis, Indiana to Mr. James H. Grove of St Louis, MO during the latter part of July 1957. At the time of delivery, as documented from Jaguar Archives, the body was painted white with black leather upholstery and a black soft top. Grove first raced XK SS 719 in September of 1957. Early in 1958 he installed a Hi-Torque limited slip differential to improve handling and changed the rear end ratio to 3.92. His racing carrer with XK SS 719 was apparently quite successful as indicated in a letter to "Lofty" England, Jaguar Racing Director, January 21, 1959, in which he talks of winning a nice collection of silverware. In late January of 1959, Grove sold the car to his friend Jerry Hardesty also of St. Louis. Not too much is known of the history or use that Mr. Hardesty made of XK SS 719. He apparently overhauled the engine and painted the car black with red. In late 1963, Hardesty sold the car to Steven J. Earle of Los Angeles, California. It is not known whether he campaigned XK SS 719. On October 2, 1969, Earle sold the car to The Vintage Car Store, Inc., Nyack, NY, who subsequently resold it on December 13, 1969 to Robert D. N. Danny of Middlesex, England. The car was shipped back to England, by Mr. Danny, arriving there on February 19, 1970. XK SS 719 may have been raced during Danny's ownership, as we know that the engine was completely rebuilt by Mr. The XK SS was conceived as a "street car" to compete in production class racing. XK SS 719, the seventh in line, began life as a production D-Type, but before completion was selected for conversion to a special "road-going" model called the XK SS. XKD 572 was re-allocated to chassis number XK SS 719 — Hodge, an employee of Jaguar, in 1973. Sometime after 1973, probably in early 1975, Danny sold XK SS 719 to Clive Jarman of London. Beginning in May of 1976, Lynx Engineering, of Sussex undertook a complete restoration of the car for Mr. Jarman. The car was reupholstered in Connolly black leather and repainted in British racing green. The restoration was completed in July of 1977. Upon completion of restoration in July of 1977, Jarman sold XK SS 719 to Bob Bakers of Omaha, Nebraska. Baker immediately shipped the car to the United States and through correspondence we know it had arrived prior to August 31, 1977. Little else is known of Bakers use of the car. In June of 1982, Bakers sold XK SS 719 to William R Tracy of Alexandria, Virginia. Bill Tracy is a well-known Jaguar enthusiast, used XK SS 719 for personal pleasure and in car shows in and around the Washington D.C. area. On August 31, 1985, Tracy sold XK SS 719 to Norb F. Schaefer Jr. of Indianapolis, Indiana. Mr. Schaeffer, an attorney by profession, was an avid car collector with a particular passion for the Jaguar marque. He participated in a number of vintage race events on both the East and West Coast, campaigning his XK140 Coupe & E-Type roadster Jaguar's along with XK SS 719. Mr. Schaffer's fondness for XK SS 719 is evidenced by correspondence declining an offer of "a substantial amount of money". In June 1999, a complete restoration of XK SS 719 was started, with the engine work performed by noted specialists, Phil Reilly Restorations. The car was finally completed in December 2001. XK SS comes complete with all restoration documentation and correspondence dating back to 1957. This is truly one of the great sports cars of all-time. * * * SCHEDULE: #1-299Taday, • #300-599  • #600-899gatohit • #900-gundar
