MT My Green Ferrari SCMsubscriber Harry Hart, of Belmont, California, called to discuss his automotive dilemma. "I've got a Mondial Cab with 48,000 miles and a recent service, an Apollo GT, an Aston DB2/4 Mk III notchback, and I just bought an XK8 convertible. They won't all fit in my garage, so something's got to go." It's a 1984 Ferrari Mondial Cabriolet, in the distinctive color of light metallic green, with a tan leather interior. A birthday present, sort of, it came into my life this past December 22, the day I was celebrating (or ruing) the beginning of my 51st year. he car hauler should be pulling up any day now, delivering the newest addition to the Martin-Banzer menagerie. Or is that collection? 330 had some chance of holding its value." Serio was more encouraging. "It's a great color, one of my favorites. And so long as you don't have to spend more than about $5 on it for service, you're okay on price." Sheehan was typically blunt. "Great job. You bought a nearly sale-proof car in a totally sale-proof color. Would you like to buy a few carbureted 400 automatics from me as well?" Following our time-honored tradition of self-inflicted collector car idiocy, we've skipped having the car inspected ("It's a late-model Ferrari, what could it need?"). A cashier's check has been fired off to Martin Swig, who has agreed to confirm that the Mondial has four wheels and two seats before paying for it. When we return home from January's five-auction Arizona fireworks, the Mondial should be in our driveway. And another adventure begins. He valued each of the three older cars in the $35,000 range, and wondered which to sell. Through the magic of the Internet, a few minutes later I had images of his collection. The Mondial was stunning in its light, exotic color. When I was a sales manager at Ron Tonkin Gran Turismo, we had a similarly colored used 308 GTS QV on offer. Unfortunately, it had a red interior and red carpets, leading us to refer to it as "The Christmas Special." Fortunately, this was in 1989, and we sold it within a week for somewhere north of $60,000. I sent the following e-mail: "Harry, it's my birthday and Cindy says I can buy a car for $25,000. I'll pay that much for any of your three cars, you make the choice." His response was quick. "Tell Cindy that, since it's your birthday, she should give you another $6,000 and you can have the Mondial for $31,000." "Cindy says! can have another $3,000, making this a $28,000 present, and she's looking forward to driving the Mondial." A few more rounds of good-natured negotiations ensued, and the Ferrari was soon mine. Once again, I am fortunate to have in Ms. Banzer a partner who aids and abets the four-wheeled fantasies of an otherwise grown man. That night, after a couple of glasses of good Oregon Pinot Noir, Ms. Banzer and I settled down for a serious discussion of this acquisition. "I read somewhere that Ferraris have always been good investments," I began. "Yes, especially compared to your shares of webvan and eToys," she replied. "And I don't think we lost more than $10,000 on the 330 America." I immediately sent e-mails to SCM Ferrari gu -  Kill It, Keep It or Sell It? Our 1978 Euro-spec, manual four-speed Mercedes 280 saloon— the subject of our "Kill It or Keep It" saga (December 2000, page 22)—is moving on. As neither RM, Christie's, nor Bonhams seems to want it as a centerpiece for their Monterey auctions, it will be sold on-line, at no reserve, beginning February 15th. Please see the listing and attractive, representative photo in this month's Showcase Gallery for details (page 77). On the Cover For reasons nearly inexplicable, but to be elaborated on in a future issue, we are looking for a Peugeot 405 to serve as our SCM staff car. Should you have a decent one (nearly a contradiction in terms), contact me at kmartin@sportscarmarket.com . The 1972 Monaco Grand Prix was a bittersweet moment for BRM. Jean-Pierre Beltoise, driving a BRM P160 through a downpour, was victorious, but it was the last Formula One victory for British Racing Motors. "BRM—the Final Grand Prix Victory" by artist Nicholas Watts, depicts Beltoise leading Jackie Ickx in a Ferrari and SCM subscriber Brian Redman in a McLaren, as they hurtle downhill from Casino Square to Mirabeau. Watts was born in London after WWII. A self-taught painter, he has concentrated on racing because of his consuming interest in the sport. He has also published The Motor Racing Art ofNicholas Watts, a compilation of his works. A farewell drive in the Mond ial for Harry and Anita Hart.  rus Randy Simon, Steve Serio and Mike Sheehan, informing them of my purchase. Simon's response was first. "Ho ho! And you thought the bills on the 330 were bad. Wait till you have to change the belts, or lube the power windows, or replace the fuse box.

Fax 503/253-2234, e-mail: mail@sportscarmarlcet.com Dear SCM: Another nice piece by Steve Serio on the Anniversary Countach (January 2002, page 25). A few comments, if! may: In the past, I have written to SCMto share with you that the production figure you state for the Anniversary Countach is wrong. As an owner of this car, the most flamboyant of all supercars (actually, the very best and most reliable driving version of the Countach), I only wish just 68 had been built as your magazine continues to erroneously state. However, the reality is that at least (with an emphasis on "at least") 657 examples of Lamborghini's Anniversary Countach were completed at the Sant' Agata plant, with the very last one bearing chassis number 12085 and currently a resident of the factory's museum. With the Lamborghini factory, all production numbers can safely be assumed to be conservative estimates. There was always a possibility of manufacturing one more car for the 17-year-old nephew of the ruler of some farflung country, especially when the production order was accompanied by a pre-paid cash payment in full. It was, in fact, known to happen on occasion. If you wish to get technical numbers, I can tell you that approximately 193 of the total 657 (plus) production were of the fuel-injected variety. Of these, the US distributor was allocated 158 cars, with the balance of 35 destined for Canada. Some of these Canadian cars are known to have been sold new in the States. Hope this clarifies the numbers situation on the Anniversario.—Joe Sackey, Laguna Niguel, CA Joe, thanks for the information. We'll update our Price Guide.—ED. Dear SCM: After reading Steve Serio's Etceterini Mini-Profile on the 1989 Lamborghini Anniversary Countach (January 2002, page 25), I thought I would comment on my own 1987, which is essentially the same but without the added visual appendages. My Countach has been driven very little over the past 12 years (about 900 km), even though it had an original total of 17,000 km when I got it a year and a half ago. Mr. Serio was correct in saying that a complete tune-up was necessary on any low-mileage exotic that hasn't been driven in many years. Since 1989 much had been neglected. I ended up replacing (or rebuilding) all the seals/gaskets (engine, transmission, differential, driveshaft tube, CV axles); all rubber parts -4- PRECIOUS METALS TRANSPORTATION OF FINE AUTOMOBILES • SPECIALIZING IN DOOR-TO-DOOR PERSONALIZED SERVICE • STATE- OF- THE- ART, FULLY- ENCLOSED 6 - CAR TRANSPORTER • EAST COAST, SOUTHEAST, MIDWEST & "SNOWBIRDS" • Au MAJOR NATIONAL COLLECTOR AUTOMOBILE EVENTS CALL: 1-888-PRECIOUS!

The true nature of these repairs is not realized until you consider the labor (at $90 per hour) on these many seals and gaskets, which required pulling the engine/transaxle. Also, I was advised to have the clutch replaced while the engine is out, since labor on clutch replacements runs over $3,600 (not to mention another $4,500 for the clutch assembly). The difference between a well-maintained and driven Lamborghini, regardless of model or year, and one that has sat year after year, goes well beyond absurdly expensive restoration work. It takes a good chunk of time out of the fun car months, months you don't get back. Because any Countach is considered an old car by all Lamborghini service departments, parts are difficult to locate at times. And as if to add insult to injury, there is no guarantee that even a fully authorized Lamborghini dealer can perform the quality of work that is required (extensive hands-on experience). I was rudely awakened to this fact only after taking my car to a Lamborghini/Ferrari spe- Continued on page 11

Continued from page 9 cialist who informed me that work done by a previous firm near Chicago had actually damaged the Ansa sports exhaust system they had installed. The same firm cracked my windshield while detailing it. When it comes to a car with no major miles on it, or one that has been stored for a decade, no matter how good the car looks, it's Buyer Beware. Next to being totaled-out, I can't think of a more vivid cue warning you to stay away from such a car, or to at least approach with wallet extended and Visa Platinum at the ready!—Thomas Mauston, WI Bush, Dear SCM: Let me get this straight. Keith bought a "pumpkin yellow, whoopee-cushion exhaust Elan"? That was the description he used for the 1991 Elan I purchased, published in the August, 1999, issue (page 32). If you compare this car to my 1998 V8 Lotus Esprit, it doesn't rate, with its inferior speed and looks. If you compare this car to the MGs I grew up driving, it's the Cadillac of small English sports cars. The two best things about the car? 1) The suspension allows you to take back-road curves at some very high speeds. It really hugs the road. 2) With the top down it looks good from the front and the back (not the sides, though), and it makes a good drop-top English sports car. Why Lotus put the Isuzu engine in that car, I don't know, especially with all their engine experience and success with the Esprit turbo engines. Even so, I like the car, although I would sell it for the right money. My car has 44,000 miles. A speed shifting thud will cost me a bit to replace the third-gear synchromesh. I have also had to replace the shift cables, which is a problem for this car.

Market Review Buyer's Guide Chassis number: 08005 The chassis underpinnings of the GTS are typical mid'60s road-going Ferrari, with independent front suspension by upper and lower A-arms, followed by a leaf-spring live rear axle. When Road & Track tested an example in September, 1966, the 3,345-pound Spyder reached 145 mph and covered a quarter mile in 15.7 seconds. Car and Driver did even better, with a 14-second sprint at the drag strip. Although clearly descended from racing Ferraris of the recent past, this product of Italy's most revered automaker was intended for fast long-distance, open-air motoring for two people and plenty of luggage. Although not the most flamboyant of Ferraris, there was no mistaking the classic egg-crate grille or the black prancing horse on the field of bright yellow. Although not the rarest of drop-top Ferraris, just 200 275 GTS Spyders were built between 1964 and 1966. ndependently, the names Ferrari and Pininfarina have a magic all their own. Put together, they signify a machine of rare transcendent beauty. This has never been more true than in the case of the Ferrari 275 GTS. Introduced at the Paris Salon in October, 1964, this lovely open Ferrari mated the marque's legendary 3286cc single-overhead camshaft V12 and five-speed transmission with a simple and elegant body from Pininfarina. Breathing through a triplet of twin-choke Webers, the lusty V12 made spectacular mechanical noises while churning out a healthy 260 bhp. I Years produced  Number produced  Original list price  SCM Price Guide  Rolling on its original center-lock alloy wheels and just as strikingly handsome as it was when first built in 1965, this marvelous example of a desirable Ferrari Spyder has received the best of care and shows just around 48,000 miles on the odometer.

Engine sound, exhaust note and a very smooth, proven transmission overcame the stylingflaws for me. The stated 260 horsepower is adequate, wind noise not egregious and the driving position, although not great, was certainly not uncomfortable. As an overall high-speed touring exotic, the 275 GTS has few peers from that time period. $14,500 1965-66 200 Aston Martin DB5 convertible, Jaguar XICE SI roadster, Mercedes-Benz 300SL This Ferrari 275 GTS Spyder sold for $147,700, including buyer 's premium, at the Bonhams & Brooks Quail Lodge sale, held August 18, 2001. If you would consider the 330 GTC as the best "bang for the buck" in a classic 12-cylinder Ferrari coupe, then the 275 GTS has to be the equivalent open can The 275 GTS isn't as expensive as its sexier siblings, (California Spyder, 330 GTS or Daytona Spyder) or as rare, but that shouldn't be the barometer for pleasure. The harshest criticism I can levy is that the 275 GTS suffers from looking like a big Fiat 1500. The plywoodesque veneer-finished dash leaves a little to be desired. (Leave the wood to the Jaguar guys.) But, perhaps the rather staid styling has kept the prices on earth, albeit the earth of Monte Carlo or the Hamptons. February, 2002  www.ferrariclubofamerica.org; www.FerrariOwnersClub.org When I gave this particular 275 a visual onceover in Monterey, it had straight and honest lines. The panel fit was excellent and much of the overall car looked and felt original and true. The chassis was unmarked and clean. However, if God is in the details, then this car is an agnostic. The consignee needed a lesson in vehicle auction preparation because "Buyers do care about details." The seats were dyed perhaps three too many times, the mechanical minutiae under the hood lacked respect (nice Pep Boys °Oilers and battery), and the cam covers were much too wet from leaking gaskets. All of this added up to a big warning shot about the last owner What else was overlooked or uncared for? It reeked a bit of the attitude of "Hell, Marge, I'll fix it myself with my new Craftsman toolset." Furthermore, I feel that red, this car 's colon is the least attractive hue on a 275. Assuming this car was a nice driving example, and that's something we won't know until the engine temperatures are up, the wind is tangling your hair and you watch the odometer roll a bit, $147,700 was all the money for this Spyder. If a host of mechanical needs become evident, and the bill is more than $5,000, then the amount paid should be considered full retail and then some.—Steve Serio (Historic data and photo courtesy of auction company)• 17

Sheehan Speaks by Michael Sheehan O Clone Wars f the 33 250 TRs originally built by Ferrari, there are at least 46 in existence today. As with Alfa Monzas, Bugatti Grand Prix cars and Jaguar types, this this TR population explosion is often the creative (and sometimes lucrative) end result of a single crashed or otherwise destroyed car becoming two or more recreated cars, each claiming remnants of the original. One example ofthis automotive cloning is 250 TR SN 0720TR, a version of which was offered at the recent Bonhams Auction at Gstaad. The original 250 TR S/N 0720TR, a standard left-hand drive, pontoon-fender car, sold new to Luigi Chinetti Motors and then to amateur racer Jim Johnston of Cincinnati, Ohio. It was raced by Johnson in 1958 and '59, and then sold to Dave Biggs of Clarksville, Missouri, who raced it in the early 1960s. In 1965 this Ferrari was virtually destroyed when lightening struck Biggs's barn, starting a fire that destroyed the building, an adjoining garage and workshop, and the other cars, including an Alfa 8C 2900, inside. Now the plot thickens. Some claim that Biggs decided to bulldoze the burned ruins, and buried the debris in a ravine, with the frame eventually ending up under the Forest Park Highway Others claim that the remnants of the frame, along with a front suspension, steering and a crankshaft of the Biggs 250 TR were dug up by SCM subscriber Henry Wessels on April 23 and 24, 1987, as he went about finding the proverbial tachometer needle from which the 8C 2900, S/N 412021, could be reborn. In any case, the Wessels-found Biggs frame and bits were sold to English collector Rodney Felton, who had a complete car recreated by Rod Jolley Coachwork in England. This 250 TR eventually went to Harald and Ingeborg Mergard, a German couple with a substantial Ferrari collection who also sponsor the Barchetta.cc Web site, a favorite of many Ferrari enthusiasts. For photos of the frame and parts, as recovered, and the Mergard's version of this saga, the reader is invited to visit www.barchetta.cc/All.Ferraris/250tr-0720tr/index.html. But our excitement is just beginning. A second chassis, allegedly also carrying S/N 0720TR, turned up in Italy in 1980. In 1981 the frame, now restored, was sold to Dutch collector Paul Schouwenburg, who spent the 1980s collecting an impressive array of original TR parts for this project. Dutch panel builder Alwin Hietbrink later built a duplicate pontoon-fender body. The car was completed CD OF SEATTLE 1999 355 F1 Berlinetta - Titanium on Black leather, 9k miles, Fl transmission, local car, fully serviced, eligible for FNA pre-owned warranty program. in early 1996 and in December of last year was offered at the Bonhams & Brooks Gstaad sale, carefully described as a "1958-type Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa Reproduction Incorporating Many Original Components, with Coachwork After Carrozzeria Scaglietti." As so often happens when big dollars and big egos are on the line, lawyers soon appeared and the Schouwenburg 250 TR was slammed with an injunction initiated by the Mergards, removed from the sale, and Bonhams was ordered to "render pages 124 through 129 of their catalog 'unreadable." Personally, I consider most pages of auction catalogs unreadable anyway. But now 0720TR, or the replica thereof, is embroiled in yet another exotic car court action, in which only the lawyers will be the victors. To add further excitement, there are rumors of a third "duplicato" existing in Italy, also carrying S/N 0720TR. A hearing on the Bonhams car is scheduled for the near future, so stay tuned for future developments. For more information about S/N 0720TR, see Cavallino magazine, #79 (February/March 1994) for Jerry McDermott's "The Phoenix Testa Rossa," a detailed and thorough history of the car until that time.• 1401 12th Avenue • Seattle, WA 98122 (206) 329-7070 For complete inventory, visit our website @ www.ferrariofseattle.corn 1999 355 F1 Spider - Two to choose from.

Etceterini & Friends Market Place 1969 Renault Alpine A110 + 1 • Chassis number: 30711 83382 resented at the Paris Auto Show in 1963, Jean Redele unveiled the Alpine A110 after his prior successes with the A106 and A108. The A110 was a true departure for the company as styling was largely revised and the Dieppe-based firm began building one oftheir more respected models that would remain in limited production for over a decade. 11) The A110 was equipped with various powerplants throughout its production. In the 15 years, only 7,812 examples were built, including the world famous Group Four Rally cars that won three world championships in the late 1960s, and in the early 1970s were defeated only by the mighty Lancia Stratos. The model presented here is one of the French-built Dieppe A110 1300-cc cars tuned with the larger intake, exhaust valves and twin valve springs. It features the gas-flowed stage 2 reworked cylinder heads producing an estimated 140 bhp. Braking is provided with the special mountain brake kit utilizing larger discs and calipers. Though this example is currently detuned for practical road use with a single carburetor, it still offers more than ample performance with a smoothness one might expect from a fully rebuilt specialty engine. In 1990, this Alpine was submitted for a noexpense-spared restoration by one of Europe's leading specialists, AMA of Holland. Work on the car included the fitment of a new chassis and body with later panel upgrades.

Additionally, the Alpine was so well painted that it became the poster car for Protech Paint Protection. This Renault Alpine is a unique and important collector car that can be enjoyed on a daily basis. This car sold for $30,800, including buyer's premium, at RM's Monterey auction, August 17, 2001. Jam intimately familiar with this Alpine, because it belonged to a colleague and a next-door neighbor It was a 1969 model of the 1300 Super variety, and was superbly restored in Holland I thought enough of the car (in spite of the missing Webers) to offer in June of this year $25k for it, cash on the hood, as we say. I was told that the selling price was $45k and not a penny less, which in my humble opinion was full retail on a very sunny day. The Alpine is not nearly so well known in the US as, say, a 911, or even an XK 120 or an MGA. The base of its popularity is Europe and Australia, perhaps made up ofthose who watched the cars race and rally in the late '60s and early '70s. As an aside, French auction house owner Herve Poulain was nearly unbeatable, in local but fierce competition, driving an Alpine in that period February, 2002  The Alpine was your "average" rear-engined car, with what was for its time an innovative double Y chassis and fiberglass monocoque body. It did not suffer from the usual ills of rear-engined cars, and was equally at home on dirt and ice (rallies) or on the pavement (road courses or just street). To me, the Alpine combined the best of all worlds. It was an okay street car; you could overcook the corner and catch the tail with relative ease, which you can 't do with a mid-engined car You could drift it like a front-engined car yet it had the traction of a rear-engined machine. Its fiberglass body had a pleasing shape, yet, without the help of a wind tunnel, was surprisingly aerodynamic, leading to a great top speed 1963-77 7,812 $160 $25 An auction is a very accurate measure of any car 's value, but only at that location and at that very instant. This car had a mediocre spot, early on the first night, at an otherwise very strong auction. Bidding is only a partially rational activity; it is also a very emotional event. This car had no "fire" on the block, of the type that can lead to high bids. Perhaps it would have done better at a Paris-based Poulain auction, where there would be more potential customers who knew what it was, and then again perhaps not. Perhaps it needed to be hand sold to a European Alpine enthusiast—we'll never know. That's part of the mystery of the marketplace for collectibles, whether art, sculpture or French sports cars. On the European continent, I would have expected this car to be worth around $35,000. With twin Webers reinstalled and proper global marketing, the car might bring as much as $45,000. Someone very smart or just lucky—or both—bought it for only $30,700. Congratulations to the buyer; not only well bought, but stolen. This is a superb, fun car May he or she enjoy it for a long, long time.— Raymond Milo (Historic data and photo courtesy of auction company.)• 19 • ±-i

Works driver Nero Taruffi recalls: "For the last two hours, we drove with a broken piston; the mechanics had taken the sparking plug out of the offending cylinder and we finished on seven, coming in second be- mouth-watering classic Alfa.

The "sevencylinder" car covered 1,675 miles at an average speed of 69.84 mph. Though it ran at Spa as a Zagato Spider, the car was quickly rebodied with closed coupe bodywork for Luigi Scarfiotti, the father of Ferrari team driver Ludovicio Scarfiotti. In 1936, someone, probably Africo Serra, again rebodied the car as a roadster with more modern, enveloping lines. The car traded hands several times again before making its way to England in 1938. The car's history during the war years is unknown, and its next registration appears in 1946, to a Grace Gertrude Danels. In 1959, this Alfa was sold to Jack Hayward, who owned it for 42 years and began its full restoration. In the file accompanying the car, there is a letter dated March 9, 1959, from Frank Clissold Ltd. of Birmingham, detailing work done on the car: "...engine completely stripped, crank ground, new bearings fitted throughout, block bored, new pistons, rings, pins fitted, head stripped, valves ground in, supercharger stripped, new bearings and oil seals fitted and end float adjusted..." In the early '60s Hayward reported the renewed engine ran "sweetly," but it has not run since. With the chassis restored, Hayward decided to fit a replica Zagato body, but never completed it. This is one of the most important and clearest provenanced Scuderia Ferrari Alfa Romeos to have come onto the market in recent years. When completely restored to original form, 2111207 will once again be a truly lovely, significant, historic high-performance car of the utmost quality and value.

Spider Corsas were built to customer specification (presumably, Enzo Ferrari) and developed 165 hp at 5,400 rpm for the 1932 model cars, and the owner could select a 4.08:1 or 3.76: 1 final drive. Additionally, this car is one of the first of three 8C 2300 series, indicated by the second digit of the serial number Differences between the three series include the location of the oil tank and radiator shape. Though some body parts are included with the car, in practical terms, this is a chassis waiting for a body. Moreover, the fact that the car has not moved under its own power for more than 40 years means that, at a minimum, the chassis and drivetrain should be torn down and thoroughly inspected. The cost of this, as well as the cost of new bodywork and trim, represents a small percentage of the car's worth. This car's sale price of $1,530,720 suggests that the restored car could easily top $2,000,000 under spirited bidding. That would allow the new owner to spend about $500,000 before exceeding the car's probable market value. Clearly, this is a 1931-34 (Series 1,2,3) 24 (1st series) well-bought project and a solid investment. This car sold at the Bonhams & Brooks Silverstone auction, held August 25, 2001, for a price of $1,530,720, including buyer's premium.

It was born a race car, and no matter what body is ultimately fitted, the new owner will have a car with a provenance far superior to the chop-job 8C race cars built by enthusiasts who couldn't quite afford the real thing.—Pat Braden (Historic data and photo courtesy of auction company.)• Sports Car Market

Li 8 1970-75 Citroen SM nits day, the Citroen SM was a deserving member of the supercar ranks. Capable of 0 to 60 in 8.6 seconds, and with a top speed of 140 mph, the Citroen SM offered a unique blend of Gallic insouciance and Italian con brio. When introduced to the US in 1971, the SM was selected by Motor Trend as its car of the year. The name SM comes from the "systeme Maserati" under the hood. The all-alloy 2.7liter four-cam V6 is shared with the Maserati Merak and puts out 180 horsepower. A first drive in an SM is unlike any other automotive experience. First, there's the singlespoke steering wheel. Then the no-travel, mushroom brake button instead of a brake pedal. Add in self-centering steering at two turns lock- to-lock; four-wheel, independent, active, self-leveling hydro-pneumatic suspension; front-wheel drive; and, on European-spec cars, driving lights that swivel with the steering wheel. And that's just the French stuff—all the Italian goodies are under the hood. A road-going mix of pasta and croissant. With a sticker price of $12,000, the SM was not a car for the masses. In 1974, you could buy a new Corvette for less than $4,500 and a new Mercedes-Benz 450SL for under $10,300. The SM is a poor choice as a getaway car for convenience store heists. When first started, it takes about 30 seconds for the nose of the car to rise, camel-like, to normal ride height. The tail follows soon after. The hydropneumatic suspension, pressurized at 2,000 psi, responds to changes in vehicle weight, speed and road characteristics. It also powers the brakes, steering, lights and wipers. The steering has low-speed power assist with automatic self-centering. At highway speeds, the power assist disappears and the gocart quick steering can provide first-time drivers with some surprises; turn the wheel slightly on the freeway and you might end up shooting diagonally across four lanes of traffic. After 50 miles, driving the SM becomes a process of minor adjustments, as you gradually discard everything you've ever learned about how to steer and stop a motor car. The complexity of the SM has concerned many would-be owners, and with good reason. While the SM is a well-engineered car that rewards good care, a neglected SM is an expensive proposition to put right. With current market values so low, buying anything but the absolute best is fiscal idiocy. Annual servicing and regular oil changes will lead to long life. Most parts are available and a good support network exists in the US and Europe. Buying an SM in excellent condition, with paperwork supporting regular maintenance, can be a bargain that offers style and performance with a sassy French twist. All this costs $12,000 to $15,000 for a top-flight car.—Doug Breithaupt• Number produced  Original list price  Years produced  Tune-up/major service  Distributor cap  Chassis #  Engine #  Club  Web site  1970-75 12,920 $11,968 $500-$800 $129 Under hood, right side on front side member Left side engine crankcase SE Citroen SM Owner's Club, David Hayes, 7454 SW 48th Street, Miami, FL 33155; david@eko-ad.com Alternatives  BMW 3.0CS, Porsche 911SC, Alfa Romeo Montreal www.david-hayes.com/sm/ buying_an_sm.htm Upgrade Your Subscription to SCM GOLD Today! v Collector Car Database—unlimited, password-protected access to the Internet-based SCM archives, searchable by marque, year, serial number and price.

There Ain't No Bargains by Carl Bomstead otobili A Object: White Eagle Gas Globe—Lot #64 Auction: Bonhams, Olympia, London, December 3, 2001 Estimate: $290-$535 Sale Price: $1,168, including buyer's premium n automobilia sale in London would seem like the perfect place to snag an obscure American gas globe at a bargainbasement price. Bonhams, the new corporate identity of the merged firms Bonhams & Brooks and Phillips Auctioneers, conducted their annual Olympia sale in London on December 3. The sale of a hundred or so collector automobiles was preceded by a varied selection of 690 lots of automobilia, toys, models and artwork. The selling percentage was respectable, with 77% of the items changing hands. As has become expected with Bonhams, there was an interesting selection of automotive mascots, which included 12 examples crafted by Rene Lalique in the late 1920s and early '30s. Half of the pieces sold, with "Grenoille," a sitting frog mascot, selling at $19,189. This was the highest selling item in this section of the auction and sold for a touch above the high estimate. While not the most visually striking of the Lalique offerings, it is one of the rarest, with only a hundred or so examples known to exist. Several dozen examples of automobilia, along with some desirable vehicles, were offered from the estate of Paul Kunkel. A lifelong car Superb Collector Models of Market price for a blunt nose.

The globe was from the White Eagle Company that, from 1919 until 1935, operated gas stations in 11 Midwestern states. It then merged with Socony-Vacuum and later came under the Mobil banner. The vast majority of gas pump globes consist of two round lenses and a body that is either five or eight inches wide. Some earlier examples were molded one-piece glass and later versions were made out of plastic. The White Eagle globe, however, was a cast glass eagle that was about 18 inches in height.

From 1924 through 1932 the eagles appeared in three versions. The earliest, in use from 1924 on, had a blunt nose and very little detail. Another version, in use during the same period, had more detail, along with a pointed nose and a casting mark that ran around the throat. It is known as the cut-throat version. The third version, in use for only a couple of years, had a pointed nose and even more detail. Values in the US have been fairly consistent over the past few years. For the later two versions, $1,600 to $1,800 has been the retail number and the more common blunt nose version, which was auctioned by Bonhams, has been hovering around the $1,200 mark. With a reserve of just $290-$535, it appeared that some collector would get a very good deal and be able to double his money by sunup in America. Alas, this blunt nose globe brought $1,168, exactly in line with the retail market in the States. Between widely distributed auction catalogs, on-line listings, fax machines and e-mails, it is becoming increasingly difficult to steal interesting pieces of automobilia at rock-bottom prices. I suppose we'll all have to go back to stopping at roadside souvenir stands to paw through piles of dusty junk, looking for that elusive great find. Just like in the good old days.• Sports Car Market

BIKE BUYS 1973-75 Kawasaki Z1 900 I ntroduced in the fall of 1972, Kawasaki's 82hp, 903-cc Z1 forged an entirely new market segment. The bike offered what enthusiasts had been longing for: a big-displacement DOHC engine, electric start and a fivespeed gearbox. Its rakish profile exuded sex appeal, which went well with the raucous tenor roar from the four flared-tip chromed exhausts. The Z1 was, for a time, the fastest mass-production motorcycle in the world. Quarter-mile times in the low 12s and a top speed of 130 mph plus made the Z1, with its $1,900 sticker, the obvious bang-for-buck choice. And with some easy modifications, owners could make the bike even faster. While it was an instant sales the rear swing-arm bushings, which weren't firm enough and lasted only a short time (retrofit upgrades are available). The four slide-type Mikuni carbs required frequent synchronization, and throttle response was inconsistent. Also, some riders complain that the Z1 's range is too short: The 4.7-gallon fuel tank won't allow much more than 100 miles before refueling. Ease of maintenance and reliability are Z 1 strengths. Nearly all maintenance can be done without removing the engine. The engine, clutch and gearbox are well designed and problems are rare. Everyman's superbike. success with the horsepower segment of the motorcycle community, the Z1 was not a good choice for inexperienced riders. Its powerful engine was crammed into a barely adequate chassis that was described as "spaghetti-like" and "scary at the handling limits." Clever Z1 owners found a way to stiffen the frame with the judicious use of gussets and bracing. Other Z1 weaknesses included The Z1 's big-displacement engine was tuned to be robust at the low- and midrev ranges, so they aren't fussy about what gear you're using. The bike is at its best on a smooth, straight stretch of road. Zls have never been expensive or exclusive, but that's much of their appeal. Prices for well-kept examples are not likely to increase appreciably due to the sheer number produced, but they'll never go down in value either. When shopping for a Z1, carefully inspect the frame for dam- age and rust. Avoid any that appear tired or abused. High miles aren't a problem as long as the bike has been serviced consistently. Listen for crank knock with a stethoscope—an early sign of engine failure. Parts are easy to find and service is relatively inexpensive.

Ferraristi packed the Palace Hotel ballroom/salesroom and a TV link served the overflow bar area. However, all three big-money, early 1950s Ferraris failed to sell under Robert Brooks's hammer, although the 1954375 Mille Miglia Berlinetta Competizione auction star (which was fired up in the ballroom during viewing, and sounded truly magnificent) is expected to find anew home, post-block, in the $2m-$2.5m range, according to the auction company. It was therefore left to a clearly much eventenjoyed 1961 250 GT short-wheelbase with much period and retro history, some of it rather macabre and involving the death at its wheel of Swiss gentleman driver and first owner Walther Lambert, to become the top-priced seller at $1,008,088. A most authentic-looking GTO replica, which employed a 1962 250 GTE donor and was well executed by Favre in France, raised a better-than-expected $135,139. A pair of 1972 365 GTS/4A Daytona Spyders, both genuine Pininfarina-bodied open cars, attracted strong bidding, with a low mileage right-hand drive costing $424,985 and a concours-even-underneath left-hand drive $404,525. By contrast, and of the same vintage, a Stamm-converted Daytona was unsold, having been abandoned at $104,449, while MARKET REPORT Winter )ilmi  $57,710 was accepted for an Autokraft chop of a GTC/4. Interestingly, a great deal of "new money" was being bid in the room, with a young City of London bond dealer splashing out $397,706 on the ex-Luigi Innocenti/Mario del Monaco 1959 250 GT long-wheelbase California Spyder, which gathered rust in a Louisiana scrapyard for 15 years. It was rescued in 1987 when a five-year Terry Hoyle restoration began. "The buyers are getting younger," Bonhams European president Simon Kidston told SCM. "The new owner of the 250 GT SWB is in his mid-30s and will race it in 2002. One collector, who is building up a very important collection, bought five cars. The young London trader who bought the 250 GT California to great applause, on the other hand, was a newcomer. He and his friends spent most of the night following the auction celebrating in Gstaad before partying on in Monaco." The auctioneers had every reason to be bullish about their event. For in the jewelry section, two important diamond rings, unsold by other houses in London and St. Moritz at the same reserve, both found buyers in this sale at $353,591 and $135,169, respectively. While during the Ferrari-themed automobilia portion of the sale, the $52,839 invested in the wood rim from the Dino 246 GP car held by Mike Hawthorn, when the Englishman finished second at Casablanca to clinch the 1958 World Championship, has become the new world record for a steering wheel. Perhaps the most poignant sign of optimism in the face of so many gloomy indices in the financial markets of the real world was when the principal of a Swiss race team flew in not one Ferrari by helicopter, as last year, but two cars by helicopter for a frozen poolside drinks party. As if such ostentation was not enough, this major player went on to pay $247,667 for a 1966 275 GTB/6C aluminumbodied coupe in the auction.

Well presented with good detailing following latest Tony Merrick rebuild, prompted by shunt during 1998 demo run at Imola. Finned brake drums. Lots of retro event invites assured. Cond: 1-. NOT SOLD AT $860,169. With no estimate released, it was difficult to value this rarity with any accuracy. What was certain was that there was nobody here for it at anywhere near this presumably insufficient figure. #256 - 1954 FERRAR137511111LLE MIGLIA Competition Coupe. Body by Pininfarina. S/N 0416AM.

This was one dropdead gorgeous machine that barked into gloriously sonic life during viewing, but, suprisingly, failed to hook a buyer under gavel.

Evidence of masking. Grubby, dull Borranis. Silverstone scrutineering stickers. Cond: 3+. SOLD AT $1,008,088. Ifyou cannot afford a GTO, then a 250 GT SWB is the next best road/track Ferrari. This one was correctly valued by all 1973, sans engine. Current non-original unit fitted in Italy during its last restoration in 1980s. Paint good. Nardi wheel. Interior and engine bay clean. Highly polished Borranis. Rear fender beaten straightish. Cond: 2+. SOLD AT $51,253. Nice example of a classic V12 that rightly made mid-estimate money. With the original engine, might have brought another $10,000. #279 - petition Coupe. Body by Scaglietti. S/N 2443GT. Red/black. LHD. Odo: 98,452 miles. Georgia USA (1991) and UK, where it was last restored in 1999. Well repainted. Excellent chrome. Trim and carpets renewed, though woodrim varnish has worn away. Well detailed underhood. Cond: 1-.

Ex-Albert Obrist and Hans Thulin collections. Retrimmed in US pre-1988. Repainted and Borranis rechromed in Italy in 1994. Period Motorola radio, luggage straps on rear deck, front nudge bar and fender louvres all present. Headlamp covers crazed. Cond: 1-. NOT SOLD AT $319,492. Suprisingly, consideringfully charted history and fine condition, nobody was prepared to match the $337,924 required. (SAs are hugely attractive and competent cars, and until now, have had great success in the marketplace.—ED.) #264-1963 FERRARI 250 GTE 2+2 Coupe. Body by Pininfarina. S/N 4745. Black/red. LHD. Odo: 1,853 kms. Said to have been Swissbased from new. Paint, brightwork and engine bay are all fairly presentable. Rather obvious retrim. Dull wheels. Cond: 2. SOLD AT $53,299. Decent price forthcoming for what appeared to be a sound and working example of one of only 950 250 GTEs built. However, the silver car (Lot #273), forjust $6,000 more, was a better deal. #251-1965 FERRARI 275 GTS Roadster. Body by Pininfarina. S/N 07345. Yellow/black. LHD. Odo: 1,794 miles. Last restored by Crepaldi of Milan and only 1,000 miles since. Minor touched-in chips to otherwise excellent paint. Windshield surround trim detaching. Engine very clean. Cond: 2+. SOLD AT $152,189. Price was about right, especially in the desirable Giallo Fly. Asking prices in the US can reach $200k, but getting that much for one can be a struggle. #257-1965 FERRARI 275 GTB/6C Coupe. Body by Pininfarina. SiN 7269. Red/black. LHD. Odo: 86,205 miles. Uprated to long- February, 2002  Factory roll bar and external fuel filler. Arrived at auction via the US West Coast and, more recently, Holland. Sharp paint, brightwork and Borranis. Cracked original leather. Well presented engine bay. Sticking brakes declared. Cond: 2+. SOLD AT $247,667. The price was marketcorrect for this ultra-rare example of the most sought-after 275 GTB variant. This car will appreciate at thebrefront of the GTB line, due to its scarcity and competition potential. #253-1966 FERRARI 275 GTB/6C Coupe. Body by Pininfarina. SiN 08951. Red/black. LHD. Odo: 10,070 kms. First owned by Bill Harrah of Reno. Last fully restored in 1990s in Europe. Paint, brightwork, interior and engine bay are all without fault. Outer-laced GTB/Ctype Borranis. One headlamp fairing cracked. repainted with evidence of masking. Piece of headlamp sealing strip missing. Marked, dull Borranis. Period Pioneer radio. Cond: 2-. SOLD AT $25,658. Near mid-estimate valuation for this Ferrari in possibly the least popular color. (While the 330 GT may be a better car mechanically than the 250 GTE, its "whupped by an ugly stick" styling hurts it in the marketplace.—ED.) #276-1966 FERRARI 275 GTB/6C ALUMINUM Coupe. Body by Scaglietti. S/N 08067. Yellow/black. LHD. Odo: 63,000 miles. nose. Door handles, window and gutter chrome pitted. Rust-scabbed front quarter panel. Still original interior. Engine bay presentation only fair. Cond: 2-. SOLD AT $152,189. Fair enough price for a car with some interesting bits added on to it. Can the new ownerjust enjoy it or will he bury himself in yet another "make the shop rich" restoration? #252-1965 FERRARI 330 GT Mk I 2+2 Coupe. Body by Pininfarina. S/N 6771. Dark gray/black. LHD. Odo: 107,327 kms. Thickly 2001 Tour Auto exercised. Cond: I. SOLD AT $206,748. This car—thefifihfrom the last twocam built--achieved the minimum forecast. Worth $10,000 or so more, I thought, especially as it was fully fettled and ready to use. #275-1966 FERRARI 330 GTC Coupe. S/N 8811. Red/black. LHD. Odo: 41,781 kms. Optional A/C. Possibly first owned by singer Dean Martin. Very well presented paint, brightwork, interior and engine bay. Borranis and Nardi wheel. Car was only spoiled by the nasty speed mirror on the driver's door. Schibler maintained. Cond: 1-. SOLD AT $82,625. Nice example correctly valued. 330 GTCs, despite their bland styling, continue to hold their own in the marketplace. Most Ferrrari enthusiasts declare them lobe the best driving vintage V12. #278-1969 FERRARI 365 GTC Coupe. Body by Pininfarina. S/N 12325. Blue metallic/black. LHD. Odo: 83,936 miles. Threeowner car. Paint sound. Pitted rear chrome. Miniature cracks to original leather. Full service history since 1976. Cond: 2. SOLD AT $87,399. Just 150 of these larger-engine variants were built. This price, just $5k more than the 330 GTC, should be considered a bargain. #270-1972 FERRARI 365 GTS/4A DAYTONA Roadster. Body by Pininfarina. S/N 15535. Red/black. LHD. Odo: 26,043 kms.

The $60,000 being sought was over-ambitious to begin with. In Europe, a targa-top Ferrari in this condition would do well to attract more than $40,000.

NOT SOLD AT $104,449. However well chopped, it did not impress the Gstaad set and the $120,000 required was unobtainable. (While chopped Daytonas may be huge bargains in terms of appearance value per dollar they are a hard sell to a sophisticated audience.—ED.) #284-1972 FERRARI 365 GTC/4 Coupe. Body by Pininfarina.

There was something for every taste; a restored Corvair rampside pickup went home with a new owner for $9,450. The auction grounds were crowded, with Saturday's attendance announced at 11,600. The ongoing success of McCormick's auctions can be attributed to a simple, consistent formula. Gene Ratcliffe (the main auctioneer) and Keith McCormick have been a team for 15 years, beginning in 1986 with a 190-car auction that brought in $650,000. McCormick has carefully grown his business, with his February, 2001, sale reaching a $2.8m total. They work each car hard without being overly aggressive. McCormick's post-block team is very efficient at getting additional deals done, as well. The totals for this sale were, not surprisingly, down from last February's impressive figure. September 11, anthrax-laced letters, tails falling off commercial airplanes, arising unemployment rate, war in Afghanistan, a slowdown in the real estate market and the faltering stock market don't combine to create the most appealing climate to buy a collector car. Further, new cars being available at zero percent interest can put a damper on the sales of threeto five-year-old used cars—one of the staples of McCormick's auctions—as Palm Desert condo-owners clean out their garages. On the other hand, there weren't any consignors trying to dump their cars. The primary attitude of buyers and sellers both was that of waiting to see what the next few months would bring. In the meantime, 189 cars went home with new owners, and over $2.3m changed hands—not bad for a weekend's work.—CB. ENGLISH CARS #129-1971 JAGUAR XKE S111 Convertible. SN N/A. Red/black. LHD.

SCM MARKET REPORT: EBAY1KRUSE BRANSON MO • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • Market Reports coming in March eBay/Kruse Scottsdale, AZ Silver Auctions Fountain Hills, AZ Bonhams Olympia, UK Christie's London, UK service in Springfield, Missouri. It bills itself as the "live music capital of America," and millions of visitors arrive each year by car, motorhome or, most likely, motorcoach (what used to be called a bus). They come for the scenery, the shopping and the shows. The Fall 2001 Branson auction, held October 19th to 21st, was the 19th year for this event. Organizers Jim and Kathy Cox held this fall's event at the Mel Tillis Theater. With good lighting and comfortable seating, the theater provided a venue quite different from the normal tent and folding chairs operation. All told, the location was a winner, with ample parking and plenty of viewing room for the cars. Cars on offer covered all sides of the market. Ninety Chevrolets found their way to the sale, including a 1959 El Camino with many luxury and convenience modifications that made a healthy $14,070. Every one of the Ferraris offered sold, as the only example consigned, a 1976 308 GT4, found a new home for $18,113. Sixteen of the 18 Jaguars on offer sold, most of them late-model used cars rather than classics. A very nicely restored 1958 Morris Minor went away at $11,025. Each of the three Rolls-Royces sold, including a 1975 Corniche with plenty of high-profile miles left in it for $30,450. The Branson sale is a biannual event, held each spring and fall. It's not the easiest event to get to if your home base is on the Left or the Right Coast, but the rewards of finding a sale with a good mix of quality cars and reasonable sellers might just make up for the distance trayeled.—D.K.

SCM MARKET REPORT: SILVER AUCTIONS PORTLAND OR Portland event, there were actually two more cars sold in September (48 vs. 46). What hurt the overall total was low attendance, which translated into a lack of bidders to contest the noreserve cars. The buyers in attendance had plenty of deals to choose from. A Ferrari 308 GT4 2+2 sold for less than $10k and was quickly resold for just a little more to an SCM subscriber. Our editor waltzed off with a slightly shabby Lotus Elan for $12,650, which he drove home from the auction. Reportedly, Ms. Banzer responded to the banana-colored car by asking, "What's that Geo Metro convertible doing in the driveway?" A handsome 1966 Corvair sold for $6,136. However, the marquee cars like the 1963 Plymouth Savoy Stage II Max Wedge coupe and the 1994 Dodge Viper RT-10 both failed to gain sufficient bids to meet their reserves. Like most local auctions, consignments ranged from late-model Porsches and Jaguars to classic muscle, with a few vintage sports cars and oddballs rounding things out. Bidders ranged from serious collectors to folks just looking for a good buy on a daily driver. Mitch Silver has been conducting auctions for a longtime, through good times and bad. In his opinion, "This is just a temporary slowdown while everyone tries to figure out where things are headed."—B.R. ENGLISH CARS #47 1954 MG TF 1500 Roadster. S/N N/A. White/burgundy. LHD.

mil  SCM MARKET REPORT: MECUM AUCTIONS, CHICAGO, IL The auction was held in a large building where the cars were driven across the block, accompanied by a tent where premium cars were showcased. There were a few glitches, mostly due to too many cars to sell and too little space to hold everything. Also, the outside lighting didn't work on Friday night and many cars were still arriving at 5 p.m., when it was already too dark to view them prior to sale time. Mecum had planned for that; the generators were there and the lights erected, but they just didn't all work. Chalk it up to auction gremlins. event, the Mecum crew worked hard, and with enthusiasm not only while cars were crossing the block, but putting together several significant deals post-gavel as well. The weather couldn't have been better and the crowd was sizable. The Pheasant Run Lodge and "across the lot" motel accommodations were convenient for out of town buyers. Is the economy stagnant? You wouldn't know it from this crowd. Many of the buyers seemed to be hobbyists who do some or all of the work on their cars themselves, so something that needed a little attention didn't scare them off. The reserves on some of the premium cars seemed optimistic, but that's nearly always the case at an auction. Sellers who know they've got a great piece will rarely risk it at no reserve. However, when a decent car crossed the block at no reserve, or when the auctioneer announced that the reserve had been exceeded, you could feel the crowd come alive. There were serious bidders in the house; they just needed the right car to bid on.—D.G ENGLISH CARS #318-1959 ARNOLT-BRISTOL BOLIDE Roadster. S/N 404X3100. Red/gray leather. LHD. Odo: 5,488 miles.

The Monthly Digest of Magnificent Motor Cars MIISH AC • Aston Martin • Austin-Healey • Bentley • Rolls-Royce • Jaguar • Lotus • MG • Triumph 1951 MG-TD Roadster Z 7 Chassis number: 9698 IN orld War II saw the start of many romances and among them was the affair between America and Abingdon, where MGs were made. Americans met the MG, fell in love, and pretty soon Abingdon couldn't keep up with the demand. Like many a love affair, the Smitten One did not notice his Beloved One's shortcomings. The MG-TC was slow, uncomfortable, and came only with right-hand drive. On the other hand, it had classic looks and was enormous fun on the road. The secret was a vintage chassis (whippy frame, beam front axle) and a responsive little engine (the 54-bhp, 1250-cc XPAG). A driver had to pay attention to get the best from it, and if a car asks you to concentrate, before long you either love it or hate it. Nobody who has ever driven a classic MG has hated it. You drive one and not a day will go by except that a mature lady will come up and tell you that she did her courting in such a car. She will also smile wistfully. After MG established a bridgehead in America with the TC, it made the TD, which came with independent front suspension by coil springs and double wishbones. Allied to smaller and wider wheels, this made the TD more manageable, and it was in its element on a winding road. This very good example is finished in red with black interior and recent work includes new brakes and a thorough engine service that included a carburetor overhaul. It also had its electrics overhauled and anew distributor and coil fitted. This is a car for the person who likes the wind in their hair and the challenge of real driving. This car soldfor $10,350, including buyer 's premium, at Bonhams & Brooks in Cannel, August 18, 2001. A T-series MG is the one car that nearly every British enthusiast wants to own at least once in his lifttime. With the vertical radiator, separate sweeping fenders, cut-down doors, folding windshield and rear-mounted spare tires, they embody the charm and heritage of classic British motoring. The only decision is which of the series to buy The TCs had the classical lines of all prewar British roadsters, but sufferfrom a lack of power that makes them nearly unusable by all but true mas- Number produced  SCM Price Guide  Years produced  Tune-up/major service  Distributor cap  Price new  Chassis #  Engine #  Club ochists for distances longer than 50 miles.

Dust under the recent respray, and an off-the-shelf interior kit that wasn't exactly to original specifications suggest a sell-it-quick restoration. The notes that the "electrics" had been overhauled and a new distributor and coil fitted probablyjust means that someone wrapped tape over a frayed wiring harness and did what had to be done to get the car to start.

The solid steel wheels that were standard on these cars don't seem quite right, but they're compensatedfor by separate headlamps in their own chromed cases. The IF had most of the same lines of the TD, but was as fast as the first MGAs. It lost the chrome headlamps, but most today have chrome wheels to provide a glint on sunny days. For any but the experienced hobbyist, though, the purchase of this Even worse, the incorrect dashboard is a clue that one or more forner owners believed that "a job worth doing right...will probably cost more than I want to pay" With the odometer showing a probably honest 76,737 miles, what the car should have received was aframe-up restoration with a full engine rebuild Instead the seller; who had probably gotten this little car in a package with some other cars he rea147wanted didn't want to spend any more than it would take to get this car sold Nevertheless, was it worth payingjust over ten grandfor the MG-7D? If the buyer went into this deal with his eyes open, the price is reasonable. Just so long as he isn't surprised when the car keeps conking out until he's exorcised all the demons that almost certainly will be lurking in the fuel and electrical system. Not to mention the problems of leaking shocks, loose steering, and weak brakes that are likely to need attention in the next year or so. And then there's the possibility ofrot in the wood-framed body.

By Gary Anderson  e  D earMr. Anderson: Ijusthadthe engine overhauled on my Austin-Healey 3000. Now when I drive it, the gauge only shows 15 psi oil pressure at idle and around 40 psi at speed. The mechanic says that's perfectly acceptable, but I'm concerned that they might not have done a goodjob.—J.D. Oznot, Princeton, N ew Jersey I would be concerned as well. Engine oil pressure standards are pretty close to the same for most six-cylinder British engines, including both Healeys and Jaguars. With standard 20W-50 oil in the engine, the gauge should be showing around 35 psi at idle and 60-65 at 3,000 rpm when the engine is first started cold. After the engine is warmed up, you should be getting 20-30 psi at idle and 50-60 psi at 3,000 rpm. Fourcylinder engines, such as Triumphs and MGs, will be a little higher. Ifyou're not seeing these figures, then there may be a problem with the engine or with the gauge. Since Smiths gauges are notoriously inaccurate, the first thing to do is check the oil pressure at the side galley of the engine using an external oil gauge. a catch tank that allows them to pressurize the engine and look for where the oil is getting by, whether it's going past an 0-ring or past the bearings. Either way, you'll need to attend to the problem to avoid ruining your engine. The shop that did the original work should be able to replace the 0-rings, have the machining redone to correct tolerances, or help defray the costs of having a competent shop fix the problem. Look for 50 psi of oil pressure in your Austin-Healey. If you get the same readings with an accurate external gauge, then I'm afraid you will need to find out where the problem is. According to David Nock, co-owner of British Car Specialists in Stockton, California, the pressure that is being measured is the force required to push oil past the bearings. If pressure is too low, then more oil is getting through than should be and the engine doesn't have enough protection. The problem could be as simple as having a bad oil pressure relief valve, or the wrong 0rings installed. It could also be a more serious problem ofpoor machining, since engine machining to the close tolerances required by British engines is becoming a lost art. To find out what your problem is, Nock says a good British car shop can check the oil pressure relief valve. If that's okay, the shop will pull the pan and install February, 2002  Dear Mr. Anderson: I read with interest SCM's description and comments on the Christie's Pebble Beach sale of Lot #55 (October 2001, page 36), the very early (S/N S-810589) Jaguar XK 140MC OTS. This was apparently an exquisitely restored example about which the reporter commented "...and one of the earliest XK 140MCs extant." I actually have an earlier 140MC roadster and have always wondered if very early cars command a premium over later production, assuming the conditions are comparable. According to the Jaguar archivists, my car, carrying chassis num- atient Addressing the Mysteries of British Car Ownership Pump Up The Pressure only a few small cosmetic differences between the early and late XK 140s, such as the width of the bootlid handle, and the contours ofthe armrest between the seats. Would you have 140 Registry or other reliable information to support that S-810440 might be the earliest surviving left-hand drive XK 140MC OTS? Additionally, in general, are the earliest cars more desirable and, by extension, of potentially higher value on an equivalent condition comparison basis?—Fred Hammerle, via e-mail Earlier models and variations are often considered more valuable than later ones if there were significant changes during production. For example, your XK 140 is considered to be worth less in the marketplace than a comparable XI( 120, and an early "flat-floor" Series I E-type has greater value than a later Series I in spite of the fact that in both cases, the later car is more practical. However, I don't believe that lower serial numbers will be worth more than later numbers in the same production run if there isn't anything significant to distinguish them from each other. Looking at Philip Porter's book Original Xl‘s , there actually were few running changes during production of the 140s, and none that look significant enough to influence valuation. Moving on to your first question, your best source of Jaguar production data will be the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust in Mahwah, New Jersey (Karen Miller, 800/452-4827). However, even they might not be able to tell you whether there are XK 140s with lower serial numbers than yours still in existence. According to Porter's book, the first lefthand drive XI( 140 OTS was serial number 810001, so yours would have been the 440th produced. It certainly could be the oldest now surviving. Whether or not that will make the car worth more, it certainly makes an interesting comment when describing your car.

GERMAN /km A n ELEGANZ UND WERTARBEIT Market Review riBuy -'s Guide 1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SE 3.5 Coupe Chassis number: 1102612001954 /11 he 280SE 3.5-liter cars were MercedesBenz's first V8-powered sports cars. A This 1971 example was delivered new with silver paintwork and has been repainted once during its present ownership. The owner has kept the car for six or seven years and the indicated mileage of 29,550 appears to be original. The car has automatic transmission with a floor-mounted automatic gear-selection lever, a factory sunroof and air conditioning. The interior and trunk are described as being in "mint" condition and the owner reports that the car handles and drives as new. Apparently much of its life was spent in Beverly Hills and it still has a Beverly Hills sticker on the windshield. More recently it has been kept in Santa Barbara. The car is offered with factory tools and manuals. These large and accommodating 3.5-liter Mercedes are ideal for carrying four adults and luggage on long-distance trips in absolute comfort. This car sold at a no-reserve price of $32,900, including buyer 's premium, at the Christie 's Pebble Beach sale on August 19, 2001. Despite the muddled last sentence in the first paragraph of the catalog description, we'll be glad to concede that these cars in both two-door coupe and convertible form are rare and desirable, which is the ideal combination for any collector car to possess. Mercedes-Benz authorities will gladly tell you that these cars are among the last of the "classic" Mercedes built. They possess superior over-theroad performance combined with supremely comfortable riding qualities, posh, understated interiors bristling with quality materials, impeccable workmanship and road manners belying their relatively large size and weight (3,641 pounds) Plus, they have the advantage of advanced-for-theperiod engineering in the Mercedes manner Even when relatively new, these cars brought a premium price simply as used cars and today even a top bid that breaks $30,000, as this one did, merely equals the approximate cost of a new C-Class Mercedes sedan. Despite carrying the three-pointed star, the new C is a car that offers far more plastic and vinyl than polished wood and leather So, really, which one would you rather have for that kind of money? combination of elegant styling coupled with effortless performance made them highly desirable and they were every bit as prestigious as their competitors. From the outset, the emphasis was on quality and the cars featured a new interior with more wood and leather upholstery as the standard. The 3.5-liter V8 engine was highly advanced, with electronic fuel injection and transistor ignition. It marked a turning point in Mercedes-Benz engine manufacturing. The high price that these cars retailed at reflected the quality and expense of their production and ensured their relative rarity. Even by Mercedes-Benz's efficient standards, output was limited, thereby enhancing the car's rarity and prestige.

One of the advantages of these models is their dual personality. While possessing dashing but dignified styling and elegant interiors that make them attractive and welcome additions to show and concours fields, they are equally at home in today's cut-and-thrust traffic thanks to their fourwheel disc brakes, automatic transmissions and superior acceleration from the double overhead-cam V8.

The condition of this car was superb, and especially attractive—and valuable—in that it was original rather than restored. From another perspective, look at all the very ordinary cookie-cutter new cars that sell in the $30,000 range, and then depreciate like stones sinking in a pond.

ast December we reviewed a variety of 356 engine modifications and upgrades. This month's topic is suspension options for your vintage four-cylinder Porsche. Wheels, tires and shocks are mostly bolt-on items and allow you to set your 356 up in a variety of configurations, from comfortable weekend cruiser to a tooth-rattling, autocross-spec buckboard. Each choice has its pluses and minuses; there is no free lunch when it comes to 356 handling upgrades. 356 suspension options are limited to ride-height adjustments and changes in torsion bars. While it is fine to lower your 356 a bit, overlowering induces excessive harshness for street use. Stay to within an inch or two of factory specs for street use. You can also install stiffer torsion bars, but avoid this unless you will be driving only on the track. Ride quality deteriorates quickly with thicker torsion bars. Installing Koni shock absorbers is a popular option. In the old days, this expensive shock (about $100 each) solved the fade problem that allowed a standard absorber to become soft when on the track or driven hard over difficult terrain. Armchair enthusiasts, upon driving their first Koni-equipped car, are often shocked to realize the price for this extra damping is a stiff ride. Although Konis are adjustable, they need to be partially removed to accomplish this. And even on the softest setting they can be quite harsh. In the old days of stock 41/2 x 15-inch wheels and 165/80/15 tires, Konis weren't so bad, as the high sidewall and small tread area L of the tires allowed for some of the compliance the Konis took away. But today, with 51/2-inch wide wheels and high-performance Z-rated 195/60/15 tires, be careful or you can quickly turn your 356 into a bone-jarring sled. I prefer the stock Boge shocks. At about $50 each, they deliver a supple ride around town and on the highway. Would I use them for racing? No, but who am I trying to impress here? My wife, so she will enjoy riding with me as much as I enjoy having her along. Other shock options are KYBs, at $25 each (firmer than Boges), or Bilsteins, at $75 apiece and similar in firmness to Konis. Wheels and tires work in close concert with the shocks and springs to deliver a compromise between reasonable street performance and go-cart style firmness. Let's start with wheels, where the choice is simple. Every 356A, B and C came with 41/2 x 15-inch wheels. Today, for drum-brake 356A/B cars, we have a choice of the original size, or the larger VW repro 51/2 x 15-inch (about $75 each). C/SC cars with disc brakes have a different bolt pattern and use the stock 41/2-inch wheel or the 1968 and later 912/911 51/2-inch wheel. But there are problems going to the 51/2-inch wheels. Repro VW wheels, available in chrome only, fit well but look wrong due to different vent panel and vent hole designs. There are no reproductions of 51/2-inch C/SC disc brake wheels, so you have to hunt the swap meets and salvage yards to find them. Both will rub a bit in front at full lock, but that's not a serious problem. February, 2002  The Nuts and Bolts of Tires and Shocks: Modifying Your 356 Rather than the nearly correct 165/80/15 Michelin XZX or Dunlop SP20 tires available today, I find a slightly smaller diameter modern tire to be a good compromise between road holding and ride comfort. My favorite is a 185/65/15 Pirelli P400. At about $50 each, these are comfortable tires with a rather low speed rating, which is still much faster than I drive. Other widely available sizes are 195/65/15, and 195/60/15, each requiring 51/2-inch wide wheels. Installing a set of Porsche 356C/SC disc brakes on a drum-braked 356 will hurt originality but is an acceptable upgrade. 356 front drum brakes have two hydraulic cylinders and therefore two leading shoes per wheel, and the swept area is very large for the weight of the car. The drums are a clever blend of alloy outers with deep cooling fins, and a pressed-in steel lining. Most do not realize that the drum brakes, when properly adjusted, stop the car on dry pavement just about as well as the discs. The discs do better when fade is an issue or when driving in wet conditions. Parts and labor on a disc brake conversion run $2,00043,000. The eternal dilemma: ride quality or performance? When built, 356s offered a state-of-theart combination of performance and roadability. Today, if you are willing to accept the design as originally conceived and executed, this humble swing-axle suspension can still deliver an astonishingly compliant ride, together with delightful handling on the street. Certainly more modern suspension designs can reach higher levels of ultimate adhesion on the track. But turning a 356 into a track competitor capable of banging wheels with the latest designs will eliminate the dual-purpose nature of the vehicle. My advice is to stick with stock, and enjoy the handling of your car the way that Ferdinand Porsche designed it to perform.

From Grand Classics to Twin Stripes of Smoking Rubber 1968 Chevrolet Corvette L88 Coupe Chassis number: 194378S426697 11111 he car that most Corvette collections consider the ultimate was never meant to be. In GM's master plan, the new body style introduced in 1968 was intended for 1967 production. Fortunately for Corvette fans everywhere, delays forced the continuation of the Sting Ray for one more year. Corvette designers were instructed to carry out a minor facelift for these interim '67 models. Fortunately, the engineers were not held back, and there were several changes to the engine lineup, including the legendary L71 435-hp, Tr-Power big block. Most performance buyers chose this option, assuming that it was the most powerful engine. What they didn't know was that Chevrolet had carefully hidden an even more potent option. In the catalog, the L88 engine was listed as a 430-hp option for $947.90, more than twice the price of the 435-hp L71 engine. What that money bought is equally impressive. The L88 engine featured aluminum intake heads, an 850 CFM dual-feed Holley carburetor, transistor ignition and 12:1 compression. In addition, the L88 package included an aluminum radiator, heavy duty brakes, suspension, and the Muncie M-22 "rock crusher" transmission. A special cowl induction hood was fitted. What was not included—or even available—was air conditioning or a radio. Although rated at 430 hp, the L88 is widely recognized as producing in excess of 500 hp—making a street L88 capable of 170 mph, right off the showroom floor. Intended to homologate the engine for racing, the L88 offering was kept quiet, with the factory and dealers actively discouraging orders by the public. Number produced  Original list price  SCM Price Guide  Although introduced in 1967, the thundering L88 continued to be available until 1969, making '68 and '69 L88s the most desirable of the next generation of Corvettes. With just 216 L88 models built over three years, it is also one of the rarest. The example pictured here is an authentic original 1968 L88—one of just 80 built. It is Years produced  Tune-up/major service  Distributor cap  Chassis #  Engine #  Club  Web site  Alternatives  well documented, including the original tank sticker, Protect-O-Plate, and shipping invoice. Sold new to George Montgomery, it was used as the pace car for the Donnington Motor Speedway in Minnesota. Finished in Le Mans Blue with a black interior, and except for a high quality repaint, this L88 is completely original—it has never required restoration. This exceptional condition is no doubt due to the car's remarkably low mileage—just 19,000. This car sold at the RM Monterey auction, on August 18, 2001, for $81,400, including buyer 's premium. The newly redesigned "Ma/co Shark" debuted in the fall of 1967 as a '68 model, replacing the '63-'67 Sting Ray. The sleek new style, with huge curves and a long snout, actually resembled a shark stalking its prey 60  There were just 80 1968 C-3 Corvettes built with the 560-horsepower RPO L88. That 's four times the number built in 1967, as the L88 option quickly became known as the one to get by serious race teams. In addition to racers, the occasional well-connected friend of a friend would get one through the normal "check the box" order form. Imagine showing up at your local Chevrolet dealer to take delivery of a brand new 1968 L88 427/430 bhp, which was actually rated at 560 brute horsepower A warning label on the console warned the owner of the danger of not using 103 rated octane fuel. There should have been one advising passengers of the possibility of gforce induced blackouts when full power was applied. I've always wondered what kind of mileage warranty was offered on the rear tires.

Prices for L88s range from $75,000 to over $500,000, with the $81,400 that this car made at the lower end of the scale. Why? First of all, a '67 L88, with its more attractive body style, will always command four to five times the amount of an equivalent '68 or '69. 1967-69 216 $75,000-$95,000 $300 $10 $5,610.90 Further; the car discussed here is a T-top, not the more sought-after convertible. And finally, it is the least desirable of the three years of production because of the horrendous build quality of the 1968 Corvettes. (Recall that Car and Driver sent its first 1968 test Corvette back to GM, refusing to evaluate it because of the large number of build problems .) Unfortunately, all-new Corvette models have never had a good reputation "out of the box." However, by now most of the original problems have long beenfaed, so to my mind, that makes this particular car a very good buy. Its what we call a DOHC example, not referring to the number of camshafts, but standing for Documented, Original, History and Condition. As with all collectible cars, the ones that have the most potential for appreciation are those that are original. With under 20,000 documented miles, this car will only become more valuable as the years roll by.—"Corvette Mike" Vietro (Historic data and photo courtesy of auction company)• Sports Car Market

The Tour Auto: More Than a Weekend Cruise am interested in participating in a future Tour Auto Event (a.k.a. Tour de France) in 2003. I currently have a 1971 Porsche 911S. In reviewing the eligible carsfor the event, I learned that my Porsche does not qualify due to its modified state (engine and body). The rules read: "Eligible models are those that entered in the event between 1951 anc11973. Some cars that enhanced the TdF may benefit from a dispensation, but only concerning the date of manufacture. Any alteration of bodywork or engine makes the car ineligible. The year featuring after the model is the first year of its participation in the event. The same type from another year is accepted" I do not wish to convert my car back to stock to make it eligible, so Jam considering acquiring a car that will qualib2. While there is a multitude of cars, few are of interest to me or within my financial reach (a 250 GTO or GT40 would be great!). Of those cars that qualib), a Porsche 356 Coupe, 911 or 914/6 are all of interest. Since I have had several Porsches over the years I would like to try something dijferent, though. One car that struck my interest is the Alfa Romeo GTV The 1969 GTV 1970 GTV and 1972 GTV all qualift. Based upon my research, all ofthese cars can be purchased rather inexpensively Is the Alfa Romeo GTV a good way to go, or should I stick with Porsche? If the Alfa is a good way to go, what should I look for in a car and what pitfalls should I be aware of?—Matthew Fenster, Farmington Hills, Michigan Keith Martin replies: Matthew, I'm not sure you know what you are getting yourself into here. The Tour Auto is a highly competitive event that spans five days, with nearly non-stop on-track racing, hill climbs and highspeed transits. There are two categories, competition (racing) and regularity (touring). There seem to be a few serious crashes every year, either on-track between participants, or off-track, when the generally crazy drivers of support vehicles run amok trying to keep up with the race car they are teamed with. The place to begin is by getting a current copy of the relevant FIA regulations (www.fia.com). At a high-line event like the Tour Auto, the regulations are enforced to an even higher degree than at the Monterey Historics. Further, just having an eligible car does not without some sort of period racing history are slim indeed. I worry that you reference GTVs as being "relatively inexpensive." Events like the Tour Auto are not for those with small budgets. Aside from the entry fee (approximately $4,500), you will have to ship your car to Europe (another $4,000 round-trip, even done $5,000 won't get your GTV into this position. cheaply by ganging it up with other cars in a container). Then add in shipping yourself and a co-driver to Paris—hopefully not in a container—along with several days lodging and food in Paris, where the event begins. If you want to have a support crew, which most cars have, there are the travel expenses for them, their tools and spare parts, plus costs of renting a support vehicle. You'll need an FIA historic license and an approved firesuit and helmet. Your car will have to be prepped to strict FIA specs if you wish to participate in the racing category rather than the touring category. As you can see, your $5,000 to $12,000 has already vaporized in entry fees and transportation costs, and you haven't even purchased a car yet. European events attract top-flight cars. ($5,000 to $12,000). Since the Tour Auto is held over five days and several hundred miles, I would like to acquire the best car that I can that will be the most trouble.free. 62  mean your car will be accepted. While a GTV may be eligible, in fact the organizers have so many GTAs and GTAtns to choose from that your chances of being accepted with a stock car Your best bet is to buy a car that has already run in the Tour Auto, and finished well. While not guaranteeing automatic acceptance in future events, it will enhance your chances. You do have a slight edge as an American, for Europeans like to have foreigners in their events. If you hire someone like Phil Hill or Michael Schumacher to be your co-driver, your chances of being accepted are even better. Oops, there goes even more money. Now, if you're still determined to go, Pat Braden has some thoughts on how to select an Alfa. Pat Braden replies: Matthew, unlike the "only real racers need apply" approach of our Sports Car Market

with a 1600-cc engine and Weber carburetors. These cars have a more Spartan interior, giving the impression of lighter weight and slightly more room. A comfortable interior makes the '69 a good choice for long-distance events. editor, I'm going to assume you wish to participate in the regularity or touring section of the Tour Auto. Rollbars are not required, nor are firesuits. The cars have to be safely prepared for street-style driving. You participate in the hill climbs and the drive on the race tracks, but are competing against the clock, rather than each other. Few cars in the regularity section have support vehicles, as the cars are not nearly so stressed. Let me clarify the model designations and years of the Alfa GTV. The notch-back Giulia Sprint GT was first introduced in September, 1963, with a 1600-cc engine. It was succeeded in March, 1966, by the virtually identical Giulia Sprint GT Veloce, and then in 1967 (1969 in the US) by the 1750 GT Veloce, also available in 1971 with a 1750-cc engine. The early Sprints and GTs are more expensive now than the later cars, and the least expensive are the 1972-74 models, with 2000-cc engines. My personal choice for the regularity section of the Tour Auto would be a 1969 1750 with SPICA injection, assuming you are buying a car in the US, and want to stay as stock as possible. This recommendation is based on the power and reliability of the 1750 engine and the model's superb ergonomics. The later 2-liter engines are a little more potent than the 1750(150 SAE hp vs. 135 SAE hp), but the larger engines are also more prone to head-gasket failure. The When inspecting a car that will be eligible for this event, the first thing to determine is that the car is completely original, and especially that the engine has not been swapped out for a different series. Your best source of information about originality and proper serial numbers will be the out-of-print book by Luigi Fusi, Alfa Romeo, All The Cars From 1910. This book is not rare, and a brief tour of booksellers will reveal a copy. Alternately, the two-volume d' Amico/Tabucci Alfa Romeo Production Cars will give similar information. For a mechanical inspection, begin by wiping your finger inside the tailpipe. A dry, sooty Things get intense in European events. seats for the 1969 US-spec GTVs were unique, providing superb lateral support, and the dash layout is most attractive. A close runner-up would be an earlier GTV deposit is normal; an oily residue indicates excessive oil consumption. Check the dipstick and radiator filler cap for a malted-milk deposit that indicates emulsified oil and a blown head gasket: reject any car with this condition. Some oil leakage from the engine is normal, especially from around the camshaft cover. All older Alfas will have weak second gear synchronizers, but shifts should be otherwise effortless and quiet. Check for rust along the undersides of the rocker panels and at the attachment points for the trailing links. For cars of this age, some rust repair to the floor panels beneath the clutch and brake pedals is normal. In preparation for the race, be sure to renew the toothed belt that drives the fuel injection pump. Rocker panels on your '69 should be spotless. February, 2002  As you're no doubt aware, the GTV cars were the basis for some real race cars, from the dual-purpose GTA to the track-only GTAm. The production model provides good performance, acceptable reliability and a most enjoyable driving experience I think you'll find an Alfa a most agreeable choice for the event, and a favorite driver afterwards.* 63

eWatch y es, there are auction queens in cyberspace. Take the 1932 Ford roadster that first appeared at the RM Arizona Biltmore auction in January of last year and sold for what we then stated was a bar- gain, $22,900 (SCM, May, 2001, page 68). Six months later it brought $29,700 at the BarrettJackson Petersen sale—what we considered to illtrmuNTIONIP"-"` ing the mechanical features. It appeared as though the condition was superb, justifying the fully valued sales figure. If this seems like a lot for a sales brochure, wait until a 1934 by Carl Bomstead Packard V12 catalog shows up. It should bring tVill PP what thic 1111P re11i7ed ) a clipper ship at sea with the setting sun. It was used during the '30s and is considered by collectors to be one of the most desirable globes. A single lens recently sold for $6,000 so the final bid was off the mark by a few thousand dollars. A very tired 1972 Mercedes-Benz 450SL, listed on eBay Motors, received only two bids up to $4,005 and after reading the description it was not hard to see why. It needed a new interior, rust and body filler were present in the fenders and along list of electrical gremlins needed to be dealt with. It was stated that $12,000 had been spent on a respray a few years ago; however, even at 72 dpi the flaws were evident. Here are a few others sales we found amusing or amazing. EBay Motors #598291457 be retail (SCM, August, 2001, page 56). Seemingly unable to find a permanent home (is there something we don't know here?), it next appeared on eBay Motors in December, 2001, where it was a no sale, after 15 bids, at $23,100. Relisted, it garnered just nine bids, ending unsold at $23,111. This Rare license plates are continuing to bring phone number prices. A 1913 Idaho plate that appeared on eBay had 2,055 hits and 17 bids but failed to sell at $5,100. It was stated to be one of a handful in existence that still had original paint. Car collectors want vintage plates that are fully restored while plate collectors value original condition and are obviously willing to pay for it. Four very rough, early, undated Vermont porcelain plates did sell on eBay with 36 bids and isn't exactly what collectors mean when they refer to provenance. the spirited bidding ended at $9,900. A very desirable Tiwoser gas pump globe was offered on eBay and received 14 bids, but failed to sell when it topped out at $9,636.96. This was a complete globe with two lenses and it was stated to be in excellent condition. The seven-color, highly detailed globe pictures 74 - 1969 MARCOS GT. First bid: $10,000. Number of bids: 1. SOLD AT: $10,000. Date sold: 12/ 01/2001. These things are quick. Weighing less than 2,000 pounds and equipped with a V6 Ford engine, they were stated to do 0 to 60 in less than seven seconds. Seemed like a reasonable price for a rather obscure British mini sports car if it were not for the discrepancies in the description. The seller claimed that "the entire car has been restored" but then also went on to state that it needed paint and new carpet. The English language is a curious thing. EBay #1025534476 — GILMORE OIL MATCHBOOK. First bid: $9.99. Number of bids: 6. SOLD AT: $38.65. Date sold: 11/05/2001. This is a bunch of money for a matchbook, albeit from one of the more collectible oil companies. Before you spend $15 on a Gilmore matchbook and figure you can double your money, make sure it is the real deal. Hard to believe, but someone is actually reproducing these things. EBay #1039550879-1928 PACKARD SALES BROCHURE. First bid: $100. Number of bids: 15. SOLD AT: $1,569.44. Date sold: 12/06/2001. This is a won- derful, rare piece for the Packard DeLuxe 8 that includes nine color plates for the various models and a booklet describ- EBay #1045373835—HARBOR PETROLEUM PORCELAIN SIGN. First bid: $100. Number of bids: 24. SOLD AT: $7,100. Date sold: 12/14/2001. This sign has it all, and could have easily brought a few thousand more and not been out of line. It is about 42 x 42 inches and the die-cut oval with the seaplane adds to the desirability. Less than a week after buying this sign, the same person bought a rare Harbor Motor Oil quart oil can as a nice complement for $490, about twice what it was worth. However, he was still ahead at the end of the day. EBay #1042059766 — MONTAUT PRINT. First bid: $50. Number of bids: 9. SOLD AT: $1,075. Date sold: 12/11/2001. Ernst Montaut was a very prolific printmaker who passed away in 1910. The pochoir stencil process that he employed allowed for subtle gradations of color, so no two prints were identical. Most of his prints have been selling in the $300 to $500 range but this is one of the more noted, depicting the 1904 Vanderbilt Cup Race and a breathtaking (though fictional) near miss as a race car crossed the Long Island Railroad. EBay Motors #598735734-1953 CHEVROLET BELAIR POST ROLLING CHASSIS. First bid: $100. Number of bids: 5. SOLD AT: $400. Date sold: 12/09/2001. It's hard to pass up the skeleton of a future street rod at only $400, but what will happen next? In a couple of years, it may be at the Oakland Roadster Show, at the local junk yard or back on eBay. Most likely, though, it will sit exactly where it was dumped by the car hauler in the new owner's yard, serving as a symbol of what dreams may come. • Sports Car Market

I would like to trade the downpayment (minimum 20%) and pay conventionally the balance, or if desired by seller, pay seller on contract. This method can help sell real estate inventory that has been sitting for an extended period. This could also help sellers who have large capital gains concerns. With a large downpayment in "trade" their taxable gain could diminish significantly. Even if the seller doesn't want an exotic car or an expensive piece of furniture, these items can certainly be sold via consignment or outright sale. Normal commission protocol gladly honored.
