Shifting Gears / Keith Martin Sweet Fifteen ifteen years ago, in 1989, the first issue of Sports Car Market magazine rolled off the presses. Or more accurately, the eight pages of the Alfa Romeo Market Letter, as it was then called, spewed out ofa mimeograph machine. At the time, we thought we were launching a business. But we were really just starting another road trip, with the final destination still to be determined. F My fascination with sports cars started early. At the age of five, I clearly remember sitting in the back seat of my grandparents' cherished bumblebee yellow and black 1956 Mercury Montclair, looking out the window onto a rain-swept Bayshore Freeway. Suddenly a small white car, probably a TR3, came up beside us. Its top was down, and the driver drenched. I'll never forget the wide smile he had on his face. I watched him pull his cap down a little tighter, and accelerate away. I didn't know what a Triumph or even a sports car was. I just knew that the driver looked like he was having a hell of a good time, and I wanted a car like his when I grew up. And more or less, the day I turned 16, I got one. On December 22, 1966, I got my driver's license and bought my first car. I went directly from the DMV office near San Francisco's Golden Gate Park to a friend's house on 18th Avenue and Irving, where I purchased his already-decrepit 1960 Bugeye Sprite for $30. I couldn't afford the additional $10 for the factory hard top; I still regret not getting it. Soon, the Bugeye gave way to an MGA. When filling the crankcase with 90-weight gear oil no longer muffled the clattering connecting rods, I rebuilt the engine. Good friend Jay Minkler and I set out to drive to the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago, a long trip for two teenagers in a ten-year-old MG. A rod exploding through the side of the block outside Twin Falls, Idaho, changed our plans. I heard the thump underhood ("What was that?"), then we coasted silently to the side of the road. We gazed in amazement at a 5-inch hole in the block, underneath the SU carburetors. Sticking out was a piece of connecting rod. It didn't seem like a can of STP and a strip of duct tape would get us back on the road. We found a used engine in Salt Lake City and had it trucked to Twin Falls. The installed cost was $450. I had paid $250 for the whole car. The rear main-seal on the used engine was bad, causing us to lose a quart of oil every 50 miles. Then the water pump died, sending the fan through the radiator, just outside Roosevelt, Utah. When the generator pulley disintegrated as we passed through Kremmling, Colorado, our itinerary changed once again. While we didn't make it to Chicago, we were never discouraged.We were young, in a convertible English sports car, and far from home. We were participating in the ultimate fantasy of sports car fanatics, a Road Trip. The MG eventually got us back to S.F. A few weeks later I sold it and moved up to a 1963 Alfa Romeo corners of the globe to bring you incisive, first-hand reports on cars that cross the block. Our marque experts, including Jim Schrager (Porsche), Gary Anderson (English cars) and Mike Sheehan (Ferraris) share, in their monthly columns, their near-encyclopedic knowledge with SCM readers. With my wife and partner in SCM, Cindy Banzer, I'd like to thank each and every one of SCM's readers for your continued subscriptions, and for your pointed and thoughtful comments on how we can make SCM more relevant. We look forward to another 15 years of this publishing • road trip, bringing you straight talk about the market, the ~~condition of the cars we examine, and our thoughts on the ~~ Shuffling the Collection It's time to have something new in the garage, which means that something old has to go. Consequently, our 1963 Healey BJ7 is now available. It's an honest car, and completely sorted. We've priced it at $26,500/offer; there's an advert in this month's Showcase Gallery. And we're thinking that it's time to have another V12 Ferrari, which means our beloved 1984 Mondial Cabriolet, a solid, no-stories, originalpaint, 53,000-mile car, has to move on. We'd like to fill its slot with a 365 GTC/4. Steve Serio, Mike Sheehan and Jean Sage agree that the C/4 would be an ideal family car, providing prodigious performance along with a backseat for our daughter, Alexandra. We're asking $28,000/offer for the Mondial, and are open to trades up/ down/sideways, with the Healey possibly part of the mix. If you have any interest in the above, or a very nice C/4 to sell, contact me at lcmartin@sportscarmarekt.com , 503/261-0333. (OR) On the Cover "Yankee Clippers" is the title English artist Barry Rowe has given this painting of two Cobra Daytona coupes. They are shown competing in the 1965 Nurburgring 1000, with #54, CSX 2601, driven by Bob Bondurant and Jo Schlesser, finishing seventh overall. Number 55, CSX 2602, driven by Jack Sears and Frank Gardner, finished tenth. Rowe grew up in Coventry, England, home of Jaguar. He studied graphic design and became an advertising art director and then an artist. In 1994 his portrait of race driver Juan Manuel Fangio won the coveted Sotheby's Art Award. In the years that followed he has been invited to show his work in prestigious shows all over the world, winning numerous awards and securing many private commissions.

He lives in Devon, England, but often appears at the American Cavallino and Monterey events. He was a featured speaker on the SCM Goodwood Revival Tour last September, and his painting of a 250 GTO was the pictorial symbol of the tour.

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@sportscarmarketcom Dear SCM: I saw the AustinHealey BJ8 that sold at Christie's Pebble Beach sale for $62,275 (October 2002 SCM, page 28), and the restorer's work was superb—with one exception. I'm not sure what the buyer of this car will fmd, but I purchased a similarly restored BJ8 (by the same restorer) at Barrett-Jackson in January (April 2002 SCM, page 41) and found that the car had not been driven enough to sort it out. A short list of problems, all of which were uncovered in less than 20 miles of driving, includes: 1. Failed carburetor float. I took one off my unrestored BT7 and replaced it before I could move the car off the B-J lot! 2. Failed fittings on both the intake and outlet side of the fuel pump. I replaced these temporarily with fuel line hose and hose clamps. 3. Brakes that were not bled. 4. Missing retainer spring. The car popped out of first gear. 5. Over-heating. There would be a loss of coolant after a few miles. 6. Leaking overdrive. None of these are especially difficult to fix or unexpected in general, but are certainly irritating on this otherwise fine restoration. I surmise that it all resulted from last-minute pressure to get it fmished for Barrett-Jackson. I hope mine is a unique case.—Tom limes, Scottsdale, AZ Tom, I hope you have communicated with the restorer In my experience, he is a straight-up guy, and would be mortified to find out you had these problems. Please keep us in the loop.—ED. Dear SCM: Some months ago Keith Martin did an auction report on the XJ220 for Auto Week. In it he said the car (in general) was not worth that much since it had never been raced. Actually, the car was raced, and it makes for a funny story. To publicize the 220, Jag set up a series of races on ESPN, I think. As I recall, these were shown live on Friday nights. The funny thing was they were driven by a bunch of American stock car drivers who didn't know what the hell they were doing. The cars were constantly hitting guardrails, spinning off, and hitting each other. The series was canceled after two or three weeks.—Paul Ryan, via e - mail 10  The XJ220 will always have a place in the Hall of Superexotics. However, it will never rank with the best of the best, such as the Ferrari GTO, because it has never truly been tested on the track against its contemporaries. And consequently, it will never have the multiples ofvalue that competition success adds to a car—ED. Dear SCM: Keith Martin's evaluation of the new Acura NSX (December 2002, page 75) was way off base. If you want to talk about ugly styling that never really changes, try the 911. A week doesn't go by that some stranger asks me about my NSX. Here in Newport Beach, where Porsche Turbos and Ferrari Modenas are a dime a dozen, the NSX remains a rarity that turns heads wherever it goes. Bottom line: chicks dig it. As for prices plummeting, I have seen just the opposite. Topcondition cars from 1991 or '92 continue to be sold in the $35k to $45k range. Sure, you can find salvaged vehicles for $30k, but why would anyone buy one? Name any other 12-year-old car that has held its value as well as the NSX. Remember, the car new in 1991 was $50k. And while Ferrari and Porsche have brought comparable competitors to the market in the last couple of years, the NSX remains the driver's choice for everyday and track use. You cannot find a more reliable, sexier, better driving twoseater on the road today.—David Blackman, via e - mail Every car has its fans, and we appreciate your affection for the NSX We agree completely with your use of the term "reliable" as it refers to the NSX, might quibble a bit with better driving, and we're simply going to have to agree to disagree about sexier. And let's see how 911 owners feel about your characterization of their steeds as ugly—ED. Dear SCM: What ever happened to Satch Carlson? He was the best thing Auto Week ever had. Get him to write for SCM.—John McNulty, West IfInfield, NY We're in touch with Satch almost daily, as he helps us bring our "two-smoke" Saab 96 back to life. He's also trying to convince SCM to field an "Historic Rallye Team" for the winter events in the Pacific Northwest, such as the Thunderbird Rally in British Columbia. We would welcome his contributions to SCM; while he's extremely busy right now, you never know what will happen in the future.—ED. Dear SCM: Jim Schrager recently wrote an article on the 914/ 6 GT (July 2002, page 58). In the early '70s I worked for Al Holbert. At the end of the 914's life there was a vehicle made called the 914/ GT or the 914S. I believe the number of cars made was less then ten cars. I never saw one, but Al spoke as though it actually existed. I did, however, see pictures. As I remember, the car had a solid welded-on roof, no vinyl on the side roll bar and the 2.4 S motor. The only people I remember who allegedly got one in the US were Peter Gregg and maybe Richie Ginther.—Joseph M. Gilardi, via e - mail Dear SCM: Some time ago you critiqued a custom Cadillac named "Marilyn" and described it as an Eldorado convertible. You failed to notice that it lacked the trademark "panoramic" windshield. In reality, it was a cut Coupe DeVille that had been well documented in contemporary hot rod magazines. In the October 2002 issue, on page 49, you classify two customs as "resto rods." A rod is a vehicle originally built prior to 1949. A resto rod is one built to appear factory stock, but with updated internals. I won't be buying your effete, elitist magazine anymore; I will not be subsidizing your wine-tasting tours.

Ask The X-Perts A Rusty 356 Will Make You Hate All Porsches perts: What do you think about a 1961 Porsche 356B Cabriolet Super 90 with matching numbers and 1,000 miles on the engine? According to the seller, it has a rusted-out bottom, but it comes with all of the bottom pieces and a deal with some guy to install them and paint the thing for $4,000. The interior is supposedly fine. All of this for $22,000 firm.—H. G., via e D ear X - - mail Jim Schrager replies: I would be very careful of this car. Rusty 356s, when patched back together on a budget, are the best way I know of to end up with a sincere and genuine dislike of all things Porsche. This is particularly true of the high-horsepower S90 engine and the always-tricky-to-restore-properly Cabriolet body style. The great problem is that if you do the car wrong, nobody will want it when you are done and the value of the car could be $18,000 or less. If you do it right, you will be buried up to your ears. Pay now or pay more later. Most of us learn the hard way that the cheapest 356 when bought quickly becomes the most expensive to own. well, as represented. However, it took me about five minutes of driving before I could get the transmission to shift into whatever gear I wanted, and another five minutes before I could do it without any grinding. Just as I started driving, we came to an intersection with some cars stopped ahead, and the owner immediately started screaming about watching the brakes. When the pedal hit the floor I almost screamed, too. Good thing I know evasive maneuvers. The "rusty" bottom is actually rust everywhere. Almost all of the chrome is pitted. The glass is mostly poor The doors shut every fifth try and they're tough to open from the inside. The interior needs to be redone completely. However; the body, all things considered, is remarkably straight. Amazingly, the car actually rode and steered quite well. Buy a done car, leave the rust to the Romanians. H.G replies: Thanks for the warning. I drove the car and here's what I've learned. The current owner, who knows a lot about Porsches, bought the car for $22,000 and planned on restoring it. He spent $6,000 on floor pans and various other restoration parts, but hasn't done anything except take the interior apart. The engine was rebuilt 2,000 miles ago—it starts easily and runs very %gen Appniwi goieipa flg„§cole eKeton The restoration man he has lined up to replace the pans and paint the car, who quoted $4,000 to do the job, hasn't actually seen the car yet. My understanding is that his crew is composed of highly skilled Romanians. I respectfully passed. Jim Schrager replies: Such a familiar story. The seller will lose his shirt financially, as will every subsequent owner until this poor car finds a hobbyist who will repair it, in the process spending 2,000 or more hours to make this project into a semi-monstrosity worth about the same as it is today. I love the idea of a bunch of Romanians learning about the 500 most obvious mistakes to be made on a 356 Cab, I just wouldn't want them doing it on my Cabriolet.

1993 Moto Guzzi Daytona 1000 he Daytona, with its high-strung racebike nature and distinctive, bellowing exhaust, stands as a "take no prisoners" milestone for Moto Guzzi. It was the bike that could have pointed the way to a highperformance future for the marque, but instead remains only a symbol of what might have been. Guzzi enthusiasts can thank Philadelphia dentist Dr. John Wittner, also the winner of the 1984 AMA Endurance Championship on a Moto Guzzi, for the existence of the Daytona. In the late 1980s, following his successes, the factory invited "Dr. John" to Lake Como to prepare and name a road version of his racing bike. The end result, although delayed until 1993 by Guzzi's always-precarious finances, was remarkably faithful to Wittner's competition mount. The trademark 992-cc pushrod engine was fitted with four-valve heads, belt-driven overhead cams, fuel injection and electronic ignition. And even though the street bike was tuned down to 95 hp from the racer's 128, it could still reach 150 mph. T Dr. John's dream ride. For the most part, Wittner got the Daytona right. Brakes are powerful and handling predictable, though the transmission is typically notchy. The bike is relatively trouble-free, though timing belts have to be replaced regularly and the electricals are traditionally delicate—jumpstarts can destroy the engine-control computer. Keep a close eye on the unusual double Ujoint/shaft drive configuration. Catastrophic wheel lock-up can occur if this system fails; retrofit the available safety kit. Wittner ditched the classic Moto Guzzi double-loop "Lino Tonti" tube frame in favor of a lightweight backbone frame derived from racing practice. He specified Marzocchi forks up front and a Koni monoshock in the rear, with a linkage that counteracted the shaft-drive effect. The Daytona was intended to be an imagebuilder, leading to a new generation of sporting Guzzis. But the $14k sticker price scared off new buyers, while the radical styling alienated traditionalists. The riding position was off-putting, and at 451 pounds, the Daytona was porky. Ultimately, fewer than two hundred Daytonas were made, with just 102 for the US market. The following year, Guzzi shelved the new engine and produced a stripped-down version-called the 1100 Sport, with a variant of the old two-valve motor, which sold much better. The Daytona isn't a bike for the casual rider. But for the enthusiast who wants a Guzzi that attacks every stretch of two-lane road as if it were the corkscrew at Laguna Seca, the Daytona is the only choice.—Bengt Halvorson and Paul Duchene• Number produced  Engine  Years produced  Colors  Transmission  Weight  Price new  Value today  Cost of full service/tune  Engine #  1993 red approx. 170 992-cc, air-cooled V-twin five-speed 451 lbs. $13,995 $12,000 $400 Perfect Daytona 1000 owner  Ease of maintenance  Appreciation potential Fun to ride   Left side of crankcase, just below cylinder webbing Always carries the pink slip to the bike in his pocket, just in case you want to race.

Ferrari Profile 1981 308 GTBi Chassis number: ZFFAA01A9B0037187 he advent of the new Pininfarinadesigned 308 GTB was hailed as one of the best Ferraris of modern times. And it is no wonder—following on the heels of the mechanically inspired but visually challenged 308 GT4, the new 308 was drop-dead gorgeous. As Sergio Pininfarina himself pointed out, "Every Ferrari car previously designed by us was a great success in the market." From a styling point of view, the 308 owes more to the legendary 246 Dino than to any previous road-going Ferrari. Perhaps equally important, the 308 GTB was the first non-12-cylinder road car to carry the Ferrari badge. T The car was quite sophisticated, particularly for the time, with a transverse-mounted all-alloy four-cam V8 engine, initially producing 205 hp— a remarkable figure. With four-wheel independent suspension and fourwheel disc brakes, the car was extremely well-balanced, and offered taut handling along with a compliant ride. Originally sold in 1982, this 308 was immediately treated to sympathetic ownership and care. Showing less than 15,000 miles on the odometer—believed to be correct from new—this original example is in excellent overall condition. It is complete with its original manuals, as well as with the original and correct Campagnolo alloy wheels. Years produced  This car sold at RM's Monterey auction, August 16, 2002, for $26,400, including buyer 's premium. Even the best manufacturers make mistakes. Porsche made a series of 911s with chain tensioner problems, Mercedes had the singlerow timing chain fiasco and Ferrari has the 1980-82 Ferrari 308s. 1980 marked the beginning ofsome rather draconian federal emissions regulations. Ferrari, recognizing its carbureted 308 engines would not meet the 1980 standards, set out to solve the problem. The result was the 308 GTBi and 308 GTSi. These new "i" cars became the second generation of 308 GTB/GTS cars. The i indicated the in- Number produced  Original list price  SCM Price Guide  Tune up/major service  Distributor cap  Chassis #  Engine #  Club  Web sites  Alternatives  Problem cars drank a quart of oil in less than 200 miles. To Ferrari's credit, they stood behind their mistake. Problem cars were treated to an engine transplant. Unfortunately many of the afflicted cars were never diagnosed as having a problem, and there was neither rhyme nor reason as to when the problem would surface. One car might have a problem from new, one at 20,000 miles, and many never developed a problem at all. The cars did not drip oil and did not smoke. Often owners never realized they had a problem until their car was years out of warranty. 1980-82 494 $50,625 $25,000-$30,000 $3,000 $387 Top frame rail, passenger side in engine compartment Top right side of engine, in the V Ferrari Club of America, P.O.

The i might also be seen as meaning "improved," as these cars benefited from a host of changes. A new interior appeared in the all-new 1980 308 with Michelin TRX tires, high-tech enamel paint, a lighter clutch and a longer shift lever phased in as the year progressed The changes were not free—I980 models cost 17% more than their 1979 counterparts. The carbureted 308s pumped out a reasonable 205 hp in US trim. The new i model was still rated at 205 hp but actually produced somewhere around a lackluster 180 hp. The new car was further demeaned by the loss of the Weber's crisp response and wonderful induction noise. The loss of power was a significant blow, but the real problem was far more sinister A design or manufacturing problem—one that was never identified—caused many i cars to develop serious oil consumption issues. 1982 Ferrari 308 GTBi Lot #269, S/N 38755 Condition: 2+ Many afflicted cars became hot potatoes, passing from owner to owner as soon as a problem was noticed. Dealers quickly awoke to the problems and became wary of offering used i models. Even a repaired car was suspicious as the replacement engine could be susceptible to the same problem. Bad examples exhibited some telltale signs (such as stained paint behind the license plate), but without performing an elaborate test the problem was—and still is—difficult to recognize. The car pictured here was a risky buy With only 15,000 miles, it could very easily harbor a bad engine or one that just hasn't gone bad yet. With no mention of a major service, chances are good a $3,000 service is due immediately, with the potential for more expensive fixes to follow soon thereafter That's also the upper mileage allowable for the TRX tires that are currently obtainable only through Coker Tires for around $1,000 a set. And for that amount, you get 20-year-old tire technology. On the other hand, if everything is good and performance is not an issue, $26,400 is on the money. Sharp, low-mileage 308s are becoming extinct. Finding another one with this low mileage and in this unabused condition would be difficult. Nonetheless, while the price is market-correct, I would hesitate to recommend this car; or a similar 308i, to a client. The downside of an i is an engine rebuild, and there is no upside. The next generation 308 Quattrovalvoles only cost a few thousand more and were virtually troublefree. Ifyou 're looking for a 308, my advice would be to find a good carbureted car or spend a little more for a QV—Steve Ahlgrim (Historical and descriptive information courtesy of RM Auctions)* Comparables Bonhams; Gstaad, Switzerland; December 18, 2001 Sold at $19,955 SCM ID# 24262 Barrett-Jackson; Scottsdale, Arizona; January 20, 2000 Sold at $28,090 SCM ID# 8904 Lot #1004, S/N ZFFAAOIAZA0033637 Condition: 3 1980 Ferrari 308 GTBi

Sheehan Speaks A $2,000 Hose Job ust as we get used to the toll taken by the passage of years, from carrying reading glasses to keeping a bottle of Advil by the bedside, owners of older Ferraris have grown accustomed to the idiosyncrasies and weaknesses of their cars. To these long-term owners, the Ferrari they have owned for many years is a great car, starts right up, and doesn't leak much oil. ji Chances are, however, that they have put fewer and fewer miles on their car as time has passed. Often when someone decides to part with a prized Ferrari, it may not have been started or driven for months or years. And just as likely, chances are the new owner, excited by his new toy, wants to start driving it as often as he can. And that's where the problems can start. Ferraris, like all cars, age. Anyone buying a 1972 Chevy Impala expects a worn suspension, soft shocks, minor engine leaks, a clunking differential, and air conditioning long overdue for a recharge. But for the $2,500 the car will cost, you've got pretty decent basic transportation that may go another 50,000 miles before it needs serious attention. Doesn't get around much anymore... parts); an abused first gear synchro ($4,500); an inoperable horn ($300); dragging front brakes ($1,000); a master cylinder that had lost one of its two circuits ($2,000); multiple engine leaks ($7,500); rusted-through header heat shields (included in the engine-out reseal); inoperative air conditioning ($1,000); warped door panels ($1,500) and a minor rip in the driver seat ($2,500—you have to do both seats so all the panels match). The initial estimate to do all the above was well over $20,000. And this was a very nice car. Then there was the "while you're at it" (and it's already apart) wish list, which included replacing the clutch, powder-coating the suspension, re-plating the calipers, a major service and a rebuild of the heating and cooling system. This easily adds another $10,000 to the repair estimate, and suddenly our straight, non-rusted, no-bad-stories, one-owner Dino seems like a potential parts car. Shiny paint, but what about the water pump? Someone buying a 1972 Dino will be spending well over $65,000, yet their "new/used" car will have the same inherent age-related problems as our hypothetical Chevy Impala does. But there's a major difference. For $250, you can probably buy the parts and magic "overhaul in a can" potions that will keep your Impala on the road nearly forever. The repairs to the Ferrari can cost enough to cause a quick trip to the home equity loan broker. Virtually every unrestored Ferrari over 20 years old needs a variety of simple maintenance activities performed, in addition to the typical tuneup, brake pad replacement and so on. Shock absorber seals, suspension bushings, brake hoses and water hoses are made of rubber or rubberrelated components, and rubber deteriorates with age. Water pumps tend to start leaking as well, and engines often need to be pulled and resealed to stop the inevitable oil leaks. Also, common sense and driver preservation dictate that safetyrelated items (such as deteriorated brake lines or frozen shocks or brake calipers) be repaired before the car is used. For instance, I recently sold a verified one-owner, red with tan, US model 246 GTS with only 38,750 original miles. This Dino had seen very little use during the past decade, had great panel fits and paint, and ran well. Upon detailed inspection, the list of needed repairs was long and included radiator and heater hoses that were as hard as hockey pucks. It would cost $2,000 to replace them as the radiator and the heaters are in the front and the engine in the rear, so the hoses run through the center of the car. Also needing work were flaccid front shocks ($1,000); a radiator long overdue for a recore ($800); radiator fans that desperately needed to be rebuilt ($600); a cracked headlight switch ($1,000 if you can find one, or have one built out of used 20 Fortunately, the buyer owned many other Ferraris and accepted that the majority of the problems were common to most 30-year-old Ferraris. After the usual negotiations a compromise was reached, an equitable split for repairs was made; a purchase agreement was signed and payment was made. The seller felt like he got a fair price given the things the car needed, and the buyer felt like the reduction he received allowed him to have some money to apply towards the repairs immediately necessary to get the car back on the road, and for it to perform reliably. All of the above simply reinforces why I am a relentless advocate of thorough pre-purchase inspections as a part of any used Ferrari acquisition. And the older the Ferrari, the greater the need for a complete going-over. None of the age-related problems above should be deal-killers, just realistic assessments of the condition of a car and the possible costs of getting it truly roadworthy. However, pre-purchase inspections may turn up real deal-killers, including major crash damage that has been repaired poorly, bent frames that have been repaired badly, or a sick engine that needs a mandatory rebuild. And unless you're buying something for parts, no old serial-production Ferrari with those kinds of issues is worth having. After an inspection, I usually recommend to the seller and the buyer that they reach a percentage split agreement on the estimated cost of repairs. Split agreements work well because the buyers aren't nearly as eager to have every aging part on the car replaced if they are paying part of the bill. I have found that the two key elements to a successful purchase are first, a pre-purchase inspection that tells you exactly what you are dealing with, and second, the understanding on the buyer's part that these are just used cars, and like all used cars, will have things that will need to be dealt with when they arrive in your garage. Expect your used Dino to act like a Lexus and you'll be disappointed. Expect it to need an infusion of love, affection and a few dollars to start behaving itself, and you'll be rewarded with a terrific ride.• Sports Car Market

English Car Profile 1966 Ford GT40 Mk I Chassis number: 1065 T he failed merger in 1963 between Ford and Ferrari and the subsequent return to competition motorsport at the highest level by the American company is motoring lore. After their rejection by Ferrari, Lee Iacocca and Leo Bebee formed Ford Advanced Vehicles and went shopping for a Le Mans winner. Following their visit to Eric Broadley's business in England, they knew they had the basis for a winning car for international longdistance road racing. The resultant car was unveiled in April 1964 and the inaugural race for a GT40 was at the Nurburgring 1000 Km in May of that year. Variants of the GT40 continued to race through the end of 1969 with wins at Le Mans, Sebring, Daytona, Monza and Spa, making the GT40 one of the most successful road/competition cars ever built. Homologation rules prompted a number of road-going GT4Os to be built, and S/N 1065 is such a version. Built to near the specifications of a racing model but detuned, it is fitted with a fully trimmed interior and is completely street-legal.  This GT40 was dispatched in December 1966 to the Ford Merchandising  Department in Dearborn, Michigan. Starting in 1967 it was used as part of a  promotional program to sell new Mk Is. The first owner was Charles Hill  from Dallas, who we believe acquired the car in late 1967. The next owner  was Andy Harmon from Mississippi, who reputedly only kept the car for a  few months in 1969, during which time he repainted the car dark blue with  yellow markings. In 1970 the car was sold to Nick Shrigley-Feigl, an English  collector who elected to paint the car purple with a white stripe,  In the early 1980s Shrigley-Feigl decided to have the car restored, and this  time he painted the car red with black and red trim. At the completion of this  work in 1982, the car still had covered only 2,035  miles. By 1984 the car passed to specialist car dealer, Years produced  William Loughran. In the mid-1980s the car went to Number produced  Richard Allen and in January 1989 the new owner Original list price  was Alan Baker. In 2000 this GT40 was sold back to   year included returning the car to its original color scheme of Azure Blue with black upholstery.  This car sold for $436,500, including buyer 's  premium, at Christie 's Pebble Beach auction, Au gust 18, 2002.  S - Ce Guide  Engine #  Club  -  Web site  Hungry to defeat Ferrari on the track, Ford pur- SCM Investment Grade  chased Lolds GT projectfrom Eric Broadley in 1963,  Alternative  giving them a ready-made, mid-engine GT car that already had a Ford pushrod  engine in the back A win at Le Mans required both speed and reliability, and  Ford knew horsepower wouldn't be a problem. However, they were ham-  strung by aerodynamic ideas that dated back to the days when 160 mph was  an impressive speed.  A study of the various body shapes and the myriad flaps, ducts and  spoilers that came and went on the Mk land later the Mk II demonstrates  how much the bodywork needed to change to make the cars remain earth-  bound at 200-mph on the Mulsanne straight.  Still, even in its earliest incarnation, never did a car with only one cam go  so much faster than multi-cam cars.

Along with careful attention to airflow (and test driving by Ken Miles among others), this work turned the GT40 into a winner The sight of the 1-2-3 finish at Le Mans in 1966 is burned into the brains of many enthusiasts. That memory and the idea of owning a road car capable ofreaching 200 mph that is a close cousin to one of the era most successful endurance racers is an exciting combination. Such an ultra-emotional response brings out the checkbooks, as does the GT40 's beauty.

In my opinion, the return to originality was part of the value increase, but I also believe the buyers just weren't in the audience in 2001. The Christie 's Pebble Beach auction is the perfect place to sell an authentic, low-mileage, important car like this, but even Christie 's can't guarantee that the right motivated bidders will show up at every event.

The English Patient / Gary Anders's/4  Triumph or a Morgan? D ear Mr. Anderson: I am interested in a comparison between a TR3A and a Morgan Plus 4 (Triumph-engined) as far as fun, reliability and value are concerned. I understand the TR3A has brisker acceleration, but the Morgan has better looks. The market value of a nice Morgan is slightly higher than a similar TR3A. Is there a simple answer for this difference in price?—Jaime Kopstein, via e - mail Regarding performance, my references suggest a different conclusion than yours. When introduced, the Morgan Plus 4 claimed to do 0 to 60 in just over ten seconds and a top speed of 104 mph. By 1958, in a Plus 4 with the TR3 engine, Autocar managed 0 to 60 in less than ten seconds and a top speed comfortably over 100 mph. By contrast, the same magazine could manage only 11.5 seconds in the Triumph with the same engine, though top speed was about the same as in the Morgan. books have become standard reference works that give restorers, concours judges and interested owners the information they need to confirm the originality of their cars. According to these two books, both steel and aluminum were used in building the bodies of XK 120s, though the usage wasn't random. In contrast, while the taillights were generally chrome, there were exceptions that do seem to occur in an unpredictable pattern. 101= 00 vos 00.00 .000 .001%00 • 0.0•• ••••s •••1•00 .IA00  • so :ow" 0,00••• mire or .111.1.1WIP"Ww •••• 011•••••1 0••• •0000%000. "r"-Jag used both steel and aluniunini in the 120 series. Buy the best Triumph or Morgan you can afford. Nevertheless, these historical data are not really relevant today. The knowledge and components to produce much better performance are available from any race-experienced Triumph tuner, so you can make either car go significantly faster. Be aware, though, that it is possible to produce more power than the primitive chassis, suspension and brakes can handle. There isn't a significant difference in price. TR3s have been climbing recently, and we expect to see them bringing $25,000 and more soon. Morgans of all flavors, except for SS models, sell in the same price range. Interestingly, only 3,390 Plus 4s were made, compared to 58,236 TR3As, so you would think Morgans would be far more valuable. But they've never had as large a following as the TR3s, and hence their values have been static for a decade, and don't show any signs of movement. With performance and price dismissed as relevant factors in your purchase decision, which car should you buy? The cars have wildly different appearances; if one looks terrific to you and the other is rather ugly, your choice is made, isn't it? If the styling of both appeals equally, then try to get a drive in a decent example of each. Even though they are both classic British sports cars, the sliding-pillar front suspension of the Morgan has a decidedly different feel from the more contemporary Triumph. If, after a test drive, you still can't decide, then either buy the best car you can within your budget, or simply flip a coin. We suggest heads, Morgan, and tails, Triumph. Or vice versa. Dear Mr. Anderson: I've found a 1954 XK 120 M that has aluminum in the bonnet, doors and taillights. The rest is steel. 1 know an all-alloy car was built, but this one seems to have only some alloy in it. Also, all the pictures I can track down show the taillights as chrome. Do you know where I might find some information on the likelihood Jaguar mixed and matched aluminum with steel in their XK 120s?—Bob McLaurin, via e-mail To answer your questions, I turned to the Illustrated Jaguar Buyers Guide, by Michael Cook, and Original Jaguar XK, by Philip Porter. These January, 2003  Cook tells us that the XK 120 was introduced at the 1948 London Motor Show and that Sir William Lyons, managing director and de facto designer of the car, had intended it more as an attention-getter for his sedans, which used the same dual overhead-cam straight-six engine. He figured he'd build a few dozen hand-tooled versions each year, using aluminum for all panels since it was easy to form. When the public went crazy over the new car, he immediately arranged for tooling in steel, but produced 240 of the all-alloy cars while tooling for the steel cars was underway. Those all-alloy cars are in high demand today, bringing in excess of $100k when they come up for sale. Cook also notes that the front parking lights were chrome on the alloy cars, as well as the steel cars produced through mid-1951, when they were replaced by light nacelles faired-in to the front fenders. In his book, Porter confirms the use of alloy throughout the 240 prototypes, but tells us that when the steel-bodied cars were introduced, their bonnets, boot lids, and doors were made of aluminum, but the shrouds and fenders were stamped from sheet steel. This practice continued throughout production of the XK 120s, from 1949 through 1954. He further states that the rear stoplights were housed in a casting of what he calls "monkey-metal" and that these housings generally were chromeplated. However, he notes that there were some XK 120s made in 1951-52 with housings painted body color instead of being chromed. Unfortunately, production records don't indicate which specific cars got the body-colored versions, and Porter doesn't indicate that these exceptions were produced in sequence, so we can only assume that for a short period owners could specify body-colored taillight housings instead of chrome if they wished. This is one of those circumstances where the individual owner needs to rely on what he finds on his own car. If the taillights show evidence of having been chromed, then it can be assumed they were probably that way as original. However, if the housings don't have any chrome on them, and the car was manufactured in 1951 or 1952, then the restorer can put them back that way. However, if the taillights are not on the car, or the car was manufactured before 1951 or after 1952, then a restorer concerned about originality could confidently use chromed taillight housings. Yours, for example, should have chrome-plated taillight housings. In any event, unless you are planning to enter and score high at Jaguar concours, so long as your taillights are nicely done, it probably doesn't matter much which direction you go.

SCM Market Report y ou won't find a lot of surprises in this issue's market reports. Aside from the $152,000 LS6 Chevelle, and an $82,000 Edsel convertible, the cars our correspondents examined traded hands within an expected range. I believe you'll find the sheer variety of events covered to be impressive, from the RM auction in Michigan, to Mecum in Illinois, Kruse in Texas, Silver in Oregon, and McCormick in California. The collector car market in the US continues to be active. Nearly every weekend there is an auction somewhere, where buyers and sellers come together to determine the true value of these old cars. As this is our January issue, it's traditional to spend a moment pondering the next 12 months. Given the extraordinary number of noreserve cars to be offered by Barrett-Jackson in Scottsdale, a great success for their event is almost assured. And positive reports from the Valley of the Sun will help boost the confidence of buyers throughout the world. We expect B-J will rack up some record prices for muscle cars and hot rods, and we'll probably see some 100+ point restored E-types and Jag 120s break the $100,000 mark. Lesser cars will increase as well. It's about time that TR3s started to climb into the $20,000 range, and you can expect MGBs in very nice condition to start passing $15,000 with some regularity. First-generation Camaros have been skyrocketing, and they're not about to slow down. Coupes with V8s will bring $20,000 without surprising, and convertibles with desirable options such as RS/SS packages and 396-c.i. engines will hit $40,000. The Camaro surge is particularly interesting, as for many years Mustangs took top dollar in the pony car arena. This was one of the rare market segments in which a Ford would beat a Chevrolet in value on a regular basis. But over the past five years, Camaros have just keep climbing and climbing, while Mustangs, with the exception of Shelbys, have remained relatively quiet. SCM continues to counsel collectors to listen to their hearts and respect their wallets when buying a car. A great deal on a car you really don't like very much is no deal at all, no matter how cheap it is. We don't predict a return to the 1988-90 price explosion (our condolences to all the folks who have been hoarding Ferrari Boxers), just a steady climb for properly done cars. Buy thoughtfully and enjoy the ride.—ED. SCM 1-6 Scale Condition Rating 1: National concours standard/perfect. 2: Very good, club 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 CLASSIC CARS Riif Classic Cars Michigan Fall International Novi, Michigan November 15-17, 2002 Auctioneers: Rod Egan, Jim Ritchie Number of automotive lots: 370 Number of automotive lots sold: 231 Sale rate: 62.4% Sale total: $5,919,604 High: Lot #SP43, 1942 Packard 180 Darrin convertible, sold at $270,300, including buyer's premium Buyers premium on sold lots included: 10% on lots from the Kughn collection; 6% on all other lots Report by Phil Skinner Market opinions in italics R M seems to have a finger in nearly every pie, from operating a restoration shop to high-end auctions. Their RM Classic Car Productions Division operates two dealership-style showrooms—one in Toronto and the other in Ypsilanti, Michigan—and puts on several auctions each year that have a broad array of affordable cars, rather than the milliondollar lots we see at Amelia, Monterey and the Biltmore. They come to the Novi Expo Center, in Michigan, twice each year. This fall's event included a special offering from Richard and Linda Kughn's highly respected collection. They offered 72 (of their approximately 400) vehicles at no reserve, ranging from restored woody wagons to outstanding low-mileage classics. While few of these lots were concours-level, several all-time high prices were set. There were bargains as well, such as the collection of Tucker parts that included one chassis, two engines, tons (literally) of body and trim parts, along with the original blueprints for a proposed Tucker convertible. This entire lot was sold for $31,350. At the other end of the scale, top dollar figures were seen for an Edsel, of all things. A rare, authentic, well-preserved 1960 Ranger convertible brought $80,300. Outside of the Kughn Collection, the usual grab-bag assortment of sports, classic, muscle and special interest vehicles were available. Ferraris didn't fare well, with just one of the four offered trading hands (a 1991 Testarossa that brought $68,370). Only three of the eight Porsches offered went to new owners. On the organizational side, less than a month before this sale, RM announced the acquisition of Worldwide Auctioneers, a small company created by John Kruse and Rod Egan that was headquartered in Auburn, Indiana. Egan was named Chief Operating Officer for RM Classic Cars, while Kruse's position was expected to focus on sales and event coordination. Egan is 28  a bit droopy. Highly detailed. Body appears sound. Typical British-car oil seepage from engine. Nice overall. Cond: 3+. SOLD AT $49,820. Sold by RM in Monterey this year for $49,500.

Odo: 65,735 miles. Pitted chrome wires, poor repaint, many door and panel fit problems. Appears to have led a hard life. Cond: 4. NOT SOLD AT $6,000. While E-types are gaining in value, prices for restoration and parts are also increasing, and at a faster rate. Projects like this are not for amateurs, with hidden clean factory alloy wheels. Chips touched up on rear edge of sunroof and by hood-cowl mating surface. No rust. Wear on seats goes with the mileage. Cond: 3. NOT SOLD AT $18,500. Sold by Mecum in 2000 for $19,950. Appears to be a decent driver and well maintained. Bid was in line with the current market. These cars don't age well, with poor assembly quality, especially in their interiors. #SP04-2001 ASTON MARTIN DB7 VANTAGE Convertible. S/N SCFAB42341 K401703. Dark red metallic/brown leather. Sports Car Market Doors fit tight, hood in need of some minor work. Poor paint, with orange peel and other imperfections. Cond: 3-. NOT SOLD AT $32,500. The DB2/9 was a 2+2 version of the DB2, powered by the previously optional 125lip six-cylinder engine. Not ready for show, but still a lot of run left in this one. A fun driver, but not for any more money than was offered. #SP30-1958 AC ACE Roadster. S/N AEX456. Burgundy/gray leather. LHD. Odo: 27,500 miles. Chrome wire wheels. Right door the first RM employee who is an auctioneer, and he did a creditable job calling this event.

CALM A AECE iii merican Ilacing Ilstaryir 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 450S Moserati - Meadowdale 1959. The eemzupo ntret; 614 4.. IFS  z• 4' —41. 11 . 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. BEAT THE SEVEN-FIGURE EUROPEAN CARS FOR A FRACTION OF THE COST BB One Exports - Raymond Milo, le patron 8375 Hollywood Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90069 (323) 656-7483 - fax (323) 654-8788 e-mail: bbone8v@pacbell.net The car has a fully documented, very extensive racing history and an unbroken chain of known ownership. Echidnas have been written up in numerous period magazines (Sports Car Illustrated, Auto Week) 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.

Rumored rear-end accident, though no evidence seen. Possibly the last Edsel. Kughn car. Cond: 3. SOLD AT $80,300. One of just 76 produced, along with several excellent and hard-to-detect fakes. This real deal set a world record for any type of Edsel. It even needed some help—the new owner told us that it is now set for a frame-off restoration. #469-1964 CHEVROLET IMPALA SS Coupe. S/N 41447U146377. White/black vinyl. LHD. Odo: 99,100 miles. 283-c.i. V8, Powerglide, rare factory add-on six-position wheels, AM/FM radio. Mostly original with older partial restoration.

Not sold twice this year, first at $38k at RM's Freshman sale, then at $35k in Monterey. Lots of interest in this car with at least three bidders on it until the end. Dealers were the last ones standing. #SP13-1966 PONTIAC GTO Coupe. S/N 242176Z106137. White/black vinyl. LHD. Odo: 55,684 miles. Three deuces and a four-speed transmission, radio, heater.

Prices for loaded Skvliners have reached upwards of $50k in recent months, and over $100k for really spectacular examples. This was a real bargain—one of the few out of the Kughn collection. #668-1960 EDSEL RANGER Convertible. S/N 0U15Y702534. White/white vinyl. LHD. Odo: 8,030 miles. Optional 352/186 V8 and the equivalent of the Cruise-O-Matic. Lots of toys, heater, air conditioning, original chrome wheel covers, narrow whitewalls. Power brakes and steering. Right door had very obvious panel repairs, repaint was so fresh it was almost tacky. Cond: 3. NOT SOLD AT $15,000. Plenty of money was offered, or at least called on this car We seen convertible Malibus top $30k, so $15k isn't out of line for a coupe. Just not for this coupe. #SP31 -1965 CHEVROLET CORVETTE Convertible. S/N 194675S108004. Burgundy/ black vinyl. LHD. Odo: 63,470 miles. 327/375 V8, fuel injection, M-20 four-speed, knock-off chiding blackwalls and proper deletes.

Everything seemed to be in place. Cond: 1. NOT SOLD AT $73,500. Sharp car bumper to bumper; equipped with all the right parts, in- 32 adjustable steering wheel. Decent, cared-for condition. Chrome bright, aluminum trim a little milky, paint applied before much-needed body prep was finished. Fluffed up for auction, not for show. Cond: 3+. SOLD AT $8,586. There were several examples of this model at the sale, and they all seemed to do well. This one was pretty but not a top off-line peiformer—more of a Sunday driver Price was peifect for the car as presented on a 389 (just like the song), styled wheels, Redline tires. Anodized aluminum has turned a little milky and chrome polish needed, but the AM radio, heater and air conditioning all worked. Former California car. Cond: 3. NOT SOLD AT $19,000. Not sold at $18k at 2002 Spring Auburn sale. While a little puffy-looking compared to the lithe '64s and '65s, these are still true muscle cars. Let's hope the new rebadged Holden can continue the tradition. #SP42-1967 CHEVROLET CORVETTE Convertible. S/N 194677S 109175. Red with black stripes/black vinyl. LHD. Odo: 32,835 Sports Car Market

Market Reports - Novi, MI miles. According to documentation, this was a factory 427/435 car with three deuces and a fourspeed, but there were some questions as to whether the correct block was in the car. Original Rally wheels. Decent paint and appointments, but far from NCRS Top Flight quality. Cond: 3+. NOT SOLD AT $40,000. Several experts were looking this car over; when they bailed out the serious bidding stalled. No shortage of Sting Rays for sale, so it takes perfection to bring top dollar And let's clear up the block question, please. #SP59-1968 SHELBY GT500 KR Convert- ible. S/N 8T03R213313-04039. Black with white stripe/black vinyl. LHD. Odo: 72,856 miles. Top performer with the 428 SCJ V8 and Red with black stripes/black vinyl. LHD. Odo: 63,825 miles. LS6 option, with 454/450 V8, M20 close-ratio four-speed, styled steel wheels, cowl-induction hood, 8-track tape. Power steering and brakes. Sharp cosmetic presentation, though some trim items were a little weak. Cond: 2. NOT SOLD AT $45,000. Some questions about the authenticity of this car 's heritage clouded the bidding process. True LS6 convertibles are pulling well over $100k in today's market (seepage 43), but their originality needs to be fully documented. #438-1970 OLDSMOBILE CUTLASS 442 INDY PACE CAR Convertible. S/N 344670M294933. White/black vinyl. LHD. Odo: 81,300 miles. 455/365 V8 with "400" automatic. Restored by an enthusiast and presented be original. Paint starting to lose contact with body around fuel filler door, revealing gray primer. Scuffed sill plates. No reserve. Cond: 3. SOLD AT $21,200. One of 240 LT1s equipped with air conditioning. While the 350c.i. V8 is the hot ticket for 1972, this car wasn't very well presented. The dealer who bought this example can probably do wonders with a strong detail, and may capture another $6,000. #415-1981 FOFtD/GHIA POCKAR Sedan. S/N 1059. Light yellow and tan/brown velour. LHD. Rear-engined city car based on a Ford a four-speed. Shelby alloy wheels and Goodyear Eagle tires. Near-flawless restoration, very straight body. Only faults were minor scuff marks on the sill plate.

Orange with white stripes/white vinyl. LHD. Odo: 97,510 miles. SS package complete with 396/350 V8, by same. Authentic down to the decals and Goodyear Eagle GT tires mounted on styled steel wheels. Good overall appearance, but not quite perfect. Cond: 2-. SOLD AT $40,280. Not sold at $22k in the 1992 Fall Auburn auction. Seller was delighted with the sale, the way he was treated by the auction company, and the way the bidders responded to his car Reserve was lifted at $34k. #SP34-1970 PLYMOUTH 'CUDA Coupe. SN BS23R0236293. Plum Crazy/black vinyl. LHD. Odo: 2,095 miles. Great documentation, Fiesta platform. This "static display model" featured exterior pockets in doors that hold matching luggage. Body stress cracks reveal car's age. Possibly an inspiration for the Aspire. Cond: 3-. NOT SOLD AT $27,000. Last seen as part of the Ford collection offered by Christie 's in June 2002, where it sold for $5,875. If any cash was really offered this time around, it is hard to understand why the owner would pass. #615-2000 PLYMOUTH PROWLER WOODWARD EDITION Convertible. S/N 1P3EW65G4YV604128. Red and black/black Turbo-350 automatic, 3.5:1 Posi rear axle, air conditioning, styled steel wheels with F-41 suspension, but entry-level AM radio. Decent bodywork, except deck lid alignment and left door fit need minor adjustment. Cond: 2. SOLD AT $22,790. The 1970 Chevelle is the hottest collectible muscle car going today, and has affected others in the family. Bought by a dealer, this was a bargain and will probably be offered to a retail customer for around $30k. #SP33-1970 CHEVROLET CHEVELLE SS LS6 Convertible. S/N 136670K131326. 34  original 426/425 Hemi V8, four-barrel carb, automatic, Magnum 500 wheels, Goodyear Polyglas tires, shaker hood, bench seats. Minor chips on rear left quarter panel, but well-preserved overall. The right color and equipment. Cond: 2+. NOT SOLD AT $87,000. A true gem, and an icon for Mopar collectors. Fully restored examples can surpass $100k in today's market. Owner was wise to decline. #613-1972 CHEVROLET CORVETTE Coupe. SN 1Z37L2S516324. Red/two-tone red vinyl. LHD. Odo: 35,799 miles. LT1 350-c.i. V8, four-speed, T-tops, manual windows, inoperable air conditioning. Engine bay appeared to and red leather. LHD. Odo: 500 miles. Car was like new. Just as clean as the day it was delivered with no visible signs of wear or tear. No reserve. Cond: 1. SOLD AT $34,450. Price was close to current used-Prowler values, which is nearly 25% off MSRP—still a better ROI than the stock market.• British Drop-Tops '58 AC Ace, $49,820, RM (pg. 28) '58 Austin-Healey 100/6, $21,350, M (pg. 36) '50 Jaguar Mark V DHC, $57,664, E/K (pg. 44) Sports Car Market

Market Reports the American muscle cars, was quite good, and bidders responded. MECUM AUCTION, INC. Mecum Auctions Fall Premier Pheasant Run Resort, St. Charles, Illinois November 1-2, 2002 Auctioneers: Mark Delzell and Mike Hagerman Number of automotive lots offered: 369 Number of automotive lots sold: 165 W...#181.Sale rate: 44.7% Sale total: $2,749,500 High: Lot #296, 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle LS6 convertible, sold at $152,250, including buyer's premium Buyer's premium on sold lots included: up to $5,499-4300; $5,500 to $9,999=$500; $10,000 to $19,999=$600; $20,000 to $29,999–$850; $30,000 to $39,999=$1,250; $40,000 to $49,99941,750; $50,000 and up=4.5% Report by Dan Grunwald and Rick Novak Market opinions in italics A fter seven years of presenting auctions in Chicago, Dana Mecum really understands what kinds of cars his buyers are looking for. More troublesome has been finding the right venue, since leaving Arlington Park some years ago. Problem solved. The Pheasant Run Convention Center in St. Charles, Illinois, is a perfect place to hold a collector car auction. Warm, well ventilated and with plenty of seating and indoor display room (along with two large tents), the space allowed for the cars to be shown attractively. The full-color catalog, while not up to Christie's standards, was a huge step forward from last year's no-catalog event. The cars were run through at a steady rate, and the excitement stayed high from start to finish—no mean accomplishment in a two-day, nearly 400-car sale. Mecum assembled a diverse group of consignments, from exotics to muscle cars, and the wide appeal paid off to the tune of $2.7m. The American segment of the sale was by far the most exciting, with a 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle LS6 convertible bringing $152,250, proving that the $172,800 Barrett-Jackson got for one last January was no fluke. A nice 1957 Mercury Turnpike Cruiser convertible sold for $36,250, a terrible 1976 RollsRoyce (that was towed across the block) changed hands for $5,500, and a 122-mile 1987 Buick Grand National was hammered down for $21,350. A number of excellent NCRS Top Flight and Bloomington Gold-winning Corvettes also crossed the block and brought decent money. A 1965 L84 convertible earned an impressive $72,628. The quality of the automobiles, especially 36  left door and left quarter panel. New paint fair. Other than parking light bezels, chrome is as new. Left headlight looked ready to fall out. Seats recovered. Nice wheels, detailed undercarriage. Side curtains in trunk. Cond: 3-. SOLD AT $21,350. Sold for $20,520 at B-J's 2002 Scottsdale sale, then sold at Spring Auburn for $18,285. This is the highest price it has earned all year A nice-enough car that will drive at highway speeds all day long. Wonder why it keeps showing up at auction? #83-1960 AUSTIN MINI Coupe. S/N 8MK9094. Red with black top/red and black cloth. LHD. Odo: 21,524 miles. High-back rust and pitting on chrome. Bondo everywhere. Cracked rear window. Dirty interior. Headliner falling, cracked trim on sunroof. Wheel covers look as if they were installed with a ball peen hammer. Towed across the block. Scary. No reserve. Cond: 5-. SOLD AT $5,300. A great way to impress people, as long as they don't notice the three guys needed to push it anywhere. Keep it in your driveway and wash it on weekends; your neighbors will never know how bad it really is. GERMAN #357-1960 PORSCHE 356B Coupe. S/N 111199. Red/black leather. LHD. Odo: 25,845 miles. Stone guards, luggage rack. Restored, with no visible rust anywhere. Floor pans and panel gaps look good. Some pitting to chrome. New seats, rubber floor mats and tape deck. Clean underhood. Crankcase reportedly replaced. Sharp paint. Cond: 2. SOLD AT $20,850. Sold for $28,620 at Barrett-Jackson Mecum has expanded aggressively in the past two years, and there have been some teething problems as his organization struggled to keep up with its growth. The professionalism with which this sale was conducted shows just how well Mecum can do when they have the time to prepare properly for an event. Most auctions grow by word of mouth, and given the positive buzz from the audience, I expect this auction to be even larger and more successful next year.—D.G ENGLISH #293-1958 AUSTIN-HEALEY 100/6 Convertible. S/N BN6L1368. White/red vinyl. LHD. Odo: 41,329 miles. Poor fit at bottom of Mecum - Pheasant Run, IL AT $24,000. Being a slushbox, bid could have been accepted without regrets. This is no longer 1990, and there are plenty of restored and semirestored Sills to choose from. #34-1976 ROLLS-ROYCE SILVER SHADOW Sedan. S/N LRE23452. White/navy leather. LHD. Overspray on weather stripping, buckets with quilted red velour pattern out of place. Racing seat belts, new carpet, custom dash with full gauges. Floor pan repair evident. Supertrapp exhaust. Decent chrome. Aluminum valve cover and Weber carb. New wiring and Cooper trim. Cond: 3. SOLD AT $7,000. The new Mini hasn't caused prices of originals to increase much, but it has caused them to get more attention on the block. This was a hodgepodge car and sold for the right price. A true Cooper S can bring over $20,000. #295-1974 JAGUAR XICE SIII V12 Convertible. S/N VE1524044BW. Forest green/ green leather. LHD. Odo: 41,068 miles. Automatic. Chrome wire wheels. Sound panel fit and only minor paint chips on door edges. Presentable chrome. Headrest sags a little and the door panel shows some wear. Clean engine bay. Reportedly restored in 1995. Cond: 2. NOT SOLD this year, then not sold for $25,000 at Kruse 's Spring Auburn event. A clean, cared-for Porsche, but seller took a big hit on this one. It 's hard to buy at B-J and resell for a profit. #32-1973 VOLKSWAGEN THING Convertible. S/N 183421059. Cream with blue and green stripes. LHD. Odo: 38,515 miles. No significant rust. Tear in driver's seat, passenger's seat cracked. Some wires hanging down under dash on right side. Soft top in good condition, clean engine. Aftermarket chrome wheels are quite rusty. Cond: 3+. NOT SOLD AT $5,000. Kubelwagens have a strong following, and there are not a lot ofthem left. This one was fully priced, though, and should have been turned loose. Per- Sports Car Market

Engine bay fairly clean, undercarriage presentable. Crack in dash, headliner starting to pull loose. Armrests don't fit properly, sun visors sag. Cond: 3. SOLD AT $7,000. This 2.7liter model had a generally unloved look about it—even the wax applied for the sale wasn 't completely wiped off If it runs for a year without problems, a decent deal. #7-1978 PORSCHE 928S Coupe. S/N 9288101003. Silver/black leather and cloth. LHD. Odo: 63,568 miles. Paint chipped, scratched and scraped. One headlight is foggy. Wiper mark on windshield.

Reportedly had major service completed at 14,000 miles. Cond: 2+. NOT SOLD AT $26,000. Last year for the carbureted 308, which is said to be the most powerful of the 308s, although they have a tendency to foul plugs. All in all, a welltended-to original example, with all the paperwork to prove it. Fair bid. #196-1995 FERRARI 348 GTS Spyder. Body by Pininfarina. S/N 2FFRG43 A950099338. Yellow/black leather. LHD.

Interior fine, except for tears in the parking brake boot. Dirty engine looks used. Cast wheels scratched. No reserve. Cond: 2-. SOLD AT $18,600. A bargain if the mechanicals check out. If they don't, 308s can't be cheap enough. The carbureted cars like this are still far superior to the two-valve slowpokes that followed. #252-1979 FERRARI 308 GTS Spyder. Body by Pininfarina. SN F106A328931. Silver/red leather. LHD. Odo: 19,000 miles. Documented original mileage, and looks it. Only a hood. Headliner fabric is loose and wrinkled at the T-tops. The interior is dirty and needs cleaning and detailing. No reserve. Cond: 3-. SOLD AT $2,900. Just a used car, but apparently an honest one. I tend to be leery of turbo-equipped cars with 100,000 miles, but if the mechanicals holdup, this could be a fun driver Of course, it will never be worth a penny more.

Some repair visible to bottom of door and thick paint with some chipping. Glued-down carpetstore remnant on floor. Cond: 3. SOLD AT $11,100. Pushed across the block, but guaranteed to run. More unusual and crowd-pleasing than a Model A. It really steams owners of $100,000 classic cars when these cuties get all the attention at local shows. Strong money. #368-1947 WILLYS JEEP.

Market Reports lectors could probably tell me why this Jeep didn't sell for the $6,000 bid, but I really think it should have found a new home. Auctioneer said it would take $12,000 to do the job. #358-1948 CADILLAC SERIES 62 Cus- tom Convertible. S/N 486247889. Red/tan leather. LHD. Odo: 7,049 miles. Automatic, pi _ _.,... __ invoirk, " it • ...,, newer 500-c.i. V8 with all-new drivetrain. Tastefully built custom Cadillac. Most chrome is very good, with some slight pitting and one bad headlight bezel. Custom interior, dashboard in tan leather. Stunning paint with a few chips. Cond: 2. NOT SOLD AT $26,000. Another 2002 Spring Auburn vet (a $31,000 nosale). An eye-catching custom that isn't too far out for most. If it drives as good as it looks, it should be worth the bid. Of course, customs can be a hard sell unless they were made by a guy named Boyd. #370-1953 CHEVROLET CORVETTE REPLICA Convertible. S/N 4LSCOV 2161K000199. Red/white leather. LHD. Odo: 1,026 miles. Kit car built in 2001, powered by a 350-c.i. V8. Automatic, modern instrumentation. Wide whites are yellowing. Panels all fit well and paint has some buffing scratches, but car is still very presentable. Some dings and waves in door trim strips. Cond: 2+. SOLD AT $19,100. A good-looking kit car that almost assuredly drives better than the original. Still, carries about as much cachet as a Brick/in and costs close to twice as much. And where's the pride of ownership when you have a Tupperware special? #256-1957 PONTIAC STAR CHIEF CUSTOM BONNEVILLE Convertible. S/N N/A. White/red and white leather. LHD. Odo: 38,080 miles. Wonderbar radio. Power brakes, steering, seats, windows. Solid undercarriage, paint where. Kaiser taillights and Frenched headlights with Ford bezels. 1946 Lincoln door buttons. Perfect paint and chrome. Custom interior. Cond: 1-. NOT SOLD AT $35,000. Whether you like cars customized or stock, you have to admire the outstanding quality of work done to this Buick. Bid wasn't too low, but the owner felt the car was worth more. Of course, he spent a lot more than the bid to build it. #305-1957 FORD THUNDERBIRD Convertible. S/N D7FH38618. Red/white vinyl. LHD. Odo: 62,297 miles. 312-c.i. V8 with fourbarrel and automatic. Soft top only. Wide whites this continue to climb in price. Though expensive, this car still sold for less than the cost of the restoration. #271-1957 MERCURY TURNPIKE CRUISER Convertible. S/N 57LA32074M. Pale yellow/black and yellow leather. LHD. Odo: 2 miles. Push-button automatic, factory tach, memory power seat, power everything. Tinted glass in good condition, very good trim. Well restored. Paint on back of Continental kit doesn't match rest of car. Nice original-looking leather. No reserve. Cond: 2+. SOLD AT $36,250. 1 of 1,265. A very nice restoration on an unusual car Fairly bought and fairly sold. With a little bit of work, car could be a #1. #285-1957 BUICK CENTURY CUSTOM Coupe. S/N 6D1029618. Pearl orange/off-white leather. LHD. Odo: 27,316 miles. 2Y2 inches chopped from top, windshield laid back, rear glass raked forward. Smooth and shiny every- clean but not detailed. Faded carpets may be original. Seat covers showing some age. Fourinch scrape on windshield. Trunk fit off slightly, but looks to be fixable. Cond: 2-. SOLD AT $47,250. "Patina" is a better word than "flawed" for this car Nothing here is perfect, but everything is good. There are so many trailer queen Corvettes these days that we tend to overlook the nice drivers. Sale price is on the money. #247-1958 CHEVROLET CORVETTE Convertible. S/N N/A. Black/red. LHD. Odo: 1,693 miles. Non-original engine. Power top. Paint cracks on left door and fender. Left windshield trim peeling, front bumper pitted. New Mecum - Pheasant Run, IL interior, weather stripping and top. Wiper scrape on windshield. Undercarriage looks solid, clean engine compartment. Cond: 2. SOLD AT $37,250. A very nice, restored '58 with a nonoriginal engine that shows very well. Strong money, but if matching numbers aren? your priority, then you can have a good looking car while saving thousands.

Lots of chrome, some pitted and wavy. Tinted glass. Immaculate interior. Fuel injection in clean engine compartment. Top as tight as a drum. No reserve. Cond: 2. SOLD AT $60,610. Number 572 of 630 made. While a Bonnie will never bring the money that a Bel Air will, properly restored ones like 40  with full wheel covers. Frame-off restoration. Interior, chrome, glass and underhood all as new. Decent repaint. Some variation in the door gaps is the only weak spot. Cond: 1-. NOT SOLD AT $32,000. T-Birds aren't appreciating as fast as muscle cars. Could bring more next time, but probably not enough to merit paying more entry fees and transport unless the owner is trucking a load of other cars anyway. #324-1958 CHEVROLET CORVETTE Convertible. S/N J58S100339. Silver/red vinyl. LHD. Odo: 13,362 miles. 283/290 V8, fuel injection. Frame appears solid, undercarriage is A hot rod 'Vette. 350/350 modem fuel-injected V8, Muncie four-speed, front disc brakes. Boyd 17" wheels. Aluminum radiator with electric fans. Chambered exhaust. Some trim fit issues and some worn chrome around the windshield. Cond: 2+. SOLD AT $44,250. Custom 'Vettes are a hard sell. Rarely are they rodded, because they bring big money when properly restored. This one found a buyer who could appreciate the custom upgrades, though, and the price was in the realm of a well-restored original. #269-1963 FORD 300 R-CODE Coupe. S/N N/A. Orange/orange vinyl. LHD. Odo: 1,020 miles. 427/425 V8, dual four-barrels, fourspeed. Radio delete. Some pits and scratches in repaint. Good panel fit. Replated chrome, but several weak spots remain. Wiper scratches.

Sponsored by HAGER11! 48 0.....00000 Portland, Oregon November 2, 2002 Auctioneer: Mitch Silver Number of automotive lots: 90 Number of automotive lots sold: 36 Sale rate: 40% Sale total: $207,585 High: Lot #62, 1987 Porsche 911 Taiga, $19,425, including buyer's premium Buyer's premium on sold lots included: 5% Report by David Slama Market opinions in italics A t Hot August Nights, Mitch Silver hammered down more than $10m in sales, and 790 cars crossed the block. It was a little different in Portland, where just 90 lots were offered, and 36 sold. That's 68 fewer cars than were entered here in April 2002, and 25 fewer than at this same sale a year ago. The crowd wasn't particularly large or enthusiastic, and the Silver gang worked hard to sell the cars that they did. From my perspective, this sale wasn't a reflection of anything going on in the economy at large, it was just an off weekend, which happens to everyone now and then. Of the sold cars, 27 were American-built. They ranged in price from a meager $1,050 for a 1981 Cadillac Eldorado to $18,690 for a 1937 Chevrolet hot rod. The auction's top sale, however, was a 1987 Porsche 911 Targa, with a complete color change, that was bought for $19,425. The average sale price at the auction—$5,766— was still less than a nice Swiss watch. There were some good cars. A handsome 1983 Ferrari Mondial Cabriolet—without service records—stalled at $24,000, $5,000 short of reserve, and an apparently well-maintained 1980 Rolls-Royce Corniche attracted just $21,500, well below its $30,000 reserve. It was clear that bidders were interested mostly in highmileage, low-dollar domestics. Mitch Silver was particularly enthusiastic about a 1962 VW Beetle, recently aroused from a 14-year hibernation. He declared it "the most original Bug" he'd seen. Or at least, it was surely the most original 1962 Bug he had seen at this auction. It was complete with all its paperwork, period-correct AAA maps and Cousteau Society decals. But all the period regalia wasn't enough to push the bidding past $6,500, and the owner putt-putted home in his mobile piece of automobile memorabilia. This fall auction, like the Portland Silver auctions that have preceded it, demonstrated once again that Oregonians prefer Gore-Tex to Sports Car Market Silver - Portland, OR

or ick 7 Palm Springs, CA snowbirds haven't yet fmished their mass winter migration. With that in mind, it's no surprise that the sale total was nearly $500,000 less than February 2002. More telling, the gross bounced back from post-September 11 woes, matching November 2000's total: $2.8m. Palm Springs Exotic Car Auction Palm Springs, California November 23-24, 2002 Auctioneers: Gene Ratcliffe Number of automotive lots: 332 Number of automotive lots sold: 203 Sale rate: 61.1% Sale total: $2,807,858 High: Lot #272, 2000 Ferrari 456 GT coupe, sold at $120,750, including buyer's premium Buyer's premium on sold lots included: 5% Report by Chip Buldoni Market opinions in italics T here's a lot to be said for consistency. Keith McCormick and wife Desley started their biannual Palm Springs Exotic Car Auction in November 1985. It has survived the go-go '80s and the dot-corn '90s. While other bigger and flashier auction companies have come and gone, this past November's sale was McCormick's 33rd in the desert. Typically, the November auction is not quite as busy as the February sale, likely because the There were the usual garden-variety European sports cars on the grounds of the Palm Springs Convention Center. Six Ferraris—some with eight cylinders, some with 12, all built since 1977—were offered, and four changed hands. The selection was appetizingly broad, and included early American land yachts, like a 1955 Desoto Fireflite; '70s exotics, like a Lamborghini Urraco and a Maserati Ghibli coupe; and modern luxury cars, like a BMW M6 and a 2000 Rolls-Royce Silver Seraph. And in case you were wondering, the obligatory Excalibur showed up, selling post-block for $27,300. Highlights include a 1958 Edsel Bermuda station wagon that brought an earth-shattering $25,200. As if this were not enough, the buyer plans on entering it in Barrett-Jackson's sale this year, and turning a profit. A nearly new Ferrari 456 GT coupe topped all dollar-earners with a sale price of $120,750. Many of the buyers and sellers present at this sale were regulars at the annual BarrettJackson, Monterey and Auburn auctions. This says quite a bit about the level of professionalism throughout McCormick's operation.

Alfa Romeo Profile 1958 750 Giulietta Sprint Veloce Chassis number: 149306552 Engine number: 131530984 t only took delivery of a few Giulietta Sprints to their new owners in 1954 for word to spread that Alfa Romeo had built something exceptional. Alfa Romeo, caught by surprise, had to quickly figure out how to increase production in order to meet demand. Alfa's previous best-sellerhad been the 2600 Sprint, with 6,999 produced; by the time the 1300/1600 Sprint went out of production in 1964, more than 45,000 had been delivered. In 1956 they introduced a high-performance model, the Veloce. The list of modifications was lengthy and resulted in a more responsive and much faster car. A higher compression, hotter cams, an 8,000-rpm tachometer, twin Webers replacing the single Solex carburetors, tubular headers, and a finned castaluminum sump featuring a built-in oil cooler were included on the Veloce model, offered in Sprint and Spider bodies. The example shown here is from a prominent collection. It has benefited from no-expense-spared ownership, having recently been taken back down to its bare metal and repainted because of one single flaw. The front seats were recently redone in the correct blue-gray corduroy and leatherette combination. Originally delivered with the Veloce package, this car reportedly performs very well. In a further effort to bring the car to near-perfect condition, the clutch and throw-out bearing were replaced. As a testament to its pristine condition, this example recently won Best Alfa at a concours. This car sold at RM's Monterey auction, August 16, 2002, for $36,300, including buyer 's premium. I As with most successful designs, there is a legend about the birth of the Giulietta. In 1952 Alfa sold bonds to finance production of the new car To enhance the sale of the bonds, Alfa offered a lottery to the bondholders, promising a number of winners free Giulietta Berlina four-door coupes. Fourdoor cars are more complex to make and the Berlina was way behind schedule, so management went to Bertone, asking him to quickly knock off a bunch of two-door Sprints. According to the story, there were four cars ready after ten days, and the winners of the lottery were satisfied. I don't recall any of them complaining about getting a Sprint instead of a four-door Berlina.

Vis- By the end of 1956 a slightly more powerful version of the engine was offered, called the Veloce, with the usual hop-up bits (twin Webers, etc.). The European Sprints morphed into racing versions, first called SVZ (modified by Zagato) and eventually into the full-blown, purpose-built SZ. Period photographs often show a grid composed completely of Giulietta Sprint Veloces and their variants. But Americans, in love with wind-blown hair and tolerating pigeon droppings on their seats, continued to prefer the Spider Here in the States, the Sprint was a rare bird, and the Sprint Veloce even rarer 1956-59 approx. 1,100 approx. $3,800 $18,000-$22,500 $250 $50 On bulkhead On intake side of engine block Club ....

The engine was a jewel, made completely of alloy, and with a pair of chaindriven overhead cams at a time when American manufacturers were trying to wean themselves from the Jurassic-era flathead. I don't think the word "ergonomics" existed at that time, but the car was a delight to drive. All the controls were easy to reach and labeled with symbols, rather than words, that described their function. The original gearbox was a work in progress, the early "tunnel-case" four-speed being replaced with afar superior "split-case" model sometime in 1958. While the electricals on the Normale models were troubleplagued Lucas, the Veloces had a more reliable Morelli system. Overall, the Sprint was a resounding success, and was embraced by Europe, where it was extensively raced. Americans, still discovering European sports cars, fell in love with the Giulietta Spider • • 1953 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint Lot #163, S/N AR149300777 Condition: 2+ I glanced at this particular car in Monterey, and was disturbed by one thing—the level of the restoration. It was a near-perfect car, but so nearperfect that running it on the California Mille could be a 1,000-mile exercise in rock-chip terror if the new owner is as compulsive as the old one must have been. Less disturbing, but incorrect was the five-speed gearbox, sourcedftom a later model. While this is aftequently seen upgrade, purists prefer these early Veloces with their archaic, but period-correct and now almost charming tunnel-case gearboxes. One would hope that the attention applied to the cos- metics was repeated with the car 's mechanicals, including often-overlooked items like the steering box and suspension bushings. Like so many fully restored cars we see, it sold well above the Price Guide, while at the same time probably below the amount involved in the restoration. No, I don 't think we are coming back to the market of '89. One swallow does not make a summer, and properly presented cars at Monterey often bring prices that drive statisticians crazy Sprint Veloces in #2 condition are still in the $20,000 range on a very good day. I hope the next time 1 see this Sprint Veloce, it 's on a mountain road, body heeled far over in the typical Sprint attitude, engine buzzing easily to 7,000 rpm and the new owner smiling grandly while collecting a few chips on the car All this Alfa really needs is a little patina, and a quick drive through the coast range would be a good start.—Raymond Milo (Historical and descriptive information provided by RM Auctions)* Comparables Bonhams & Brooks; Geneva, Switzerland; March 5, 2001 Sold at $11,956 SCM ID# 23957 eBay Motors; March 21, 2002 Sold at $16,500 1960 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint "Veloce" S/N 149321167 Mileage: 90,000

Etceterini and Friends Profile 1972 Lamborghini Miura SV Chassis number: 4818 Engine number:30734 R ock-and-roll star Rod Stewart was no stranger to the Lamborghini Miura, the world's first mid-engined supercar—he has owned both a Miura S and SV. When he ordered the right-hand drive SV shown here, he specified a bright yellow finish with dark blue leather upholstery. He also ordered air conditioning, which was relatively novel on a GT car, and a Philips radio/cassette with a recording function. Only 142 SVs were made, nine of which were righthand-drive. Stewart kept his until 1985. During that time it appears to have played a significant part in his lifestyle— when he sold it, there were marks from stiletto heels in the headliner. If this car could talk it might bring a blush to the cheeks of many a glamorous model and actress. When the second owner bought the car in 1985 it had 18,000 miles on the clock and he undertook a sympathetic restoration. The chassis and body were stripped and the coachwork repainted in the correct shade of yellow, with the cabin retrimmed in blue Connolly to match the original. Del Hopkins fitted new carburetors and the suspension was rebuilt. The engine was found to be in excellent condition so was serviced rather than opened. Being a late-production SV, it of course has the desirable split-sump lubrication. Since completion of this work, Rod Stewart's Miura SV has covered another 11,000 miles. It was featured in Classic Cars magazine in January 1995, where it was summed up as "an intrinsically special car to jump into and drive whenever you need to feel good about the world." S/N 4818 still has Rod Stewart's name in the logbook, plus the SV Owner's Handbook and a file of invoices. A copy of the Coltrin/Marchet Miura book is also included, signed by Ferruccio Lamborghini, for the vendor. This car sold for $122,460, including buyer 's premium, at the Bonhams Goodwood auction, September 6, 2002. Years produced  Number produced  Original list price  SCM Price Guide  Lamborghini's Chief Development Engineer, Bob Wallace, built the legendary one-off Miura iota in 1969 as an experimental project sanctioned by Chief Engineer Paolo Stanzini. Some of the technical knowledge gained in the project was employed for the Miura 's ultimate version, the Miura P400SV. The SK introduced at the Geneva Salon of 1971, came to symbolize the very best version of Lamborghini's famous Miura. Tune-up/major service  Distributor cap  Chassis #  Engine #  Club  Web site  Altematives  SCA/ Investment Grade  The SV (standing for Spinto Veloce, which literally translates to "tuned fast') featured a wider rear track, revised suspension geometry, a reinforced chassis, a split sump separating gearbox and engine oil (employed in the last 96 SVs built), hotter cam timing, bigger inlet valves and upgraded Weber carburetors making power and torque increases to 385 bhp and 289 pounds-feet, respectively. Cosmetically, the SV received wider 9-inch Campagnolo rear wheels, wider rear fenders, deletion of the grilled "eyelashes" around the headlights, new larger three-section Altissimo taillights and a revised front bumper with parking lamps. The SV 's improvements over previous Miuras led Bob Wallace to describe it as a "different car" by comparison in terms of handling and performance. This car's refurbishment by Del Hopkins is a huge plus, as he is one of a handful of Lamborghini specialists who really know these cars. 4818 is a split-sump car with factory-installed air conditioning—the ultimate specification for a Miura SV, and another point in the car 's fervor 4818's only visible exterior fault is the application of the rear SV badges a tad askew (to the left), courtesy perhaps of the time when the car was repainted. Correction involves welding up the holes drilled into the wrong place in the rear aluminum panel, and paintwork before the badges can be correctly repositioned. 1971-73 142 (5 additional SVs modified to SVJs) $23,000 $175,000-$275,000 $1,000 $250 Front compartment chassis fore of passenger side Between cylinder heads Lamborghini Owner's Club, P.O. Box 7214, St. Petersburg, FL 33734 www.lamborghiniregistry.com Ferrari Daytona, Saleen S7, Callaway Cl2 Corvette A Of greater concern is the status of this car 's engine. Wallace himself reminds us that these engines were good for about 30,000 miles, which is exactly how far this example has traveled If 4818's engine has not been opened yet, as the catalog infers, the new owner should expect a very expensive rebuild in the not-too-distant future. Miura SV values are substantially softer in Europe than in the US, perhaps due to the fact that they seem to come to the marketplace more often (three SVs have been sold by auction in Europe this year with another three advertised for sale). Also, the majority ofcars offered there are original, unrestored cars that are simply worth less. By way of example, 4818 brought close o $150,000 less than 5064, a fully restored SV sold by Christie's during Pebble Beach weekend this past August for $270,000, and its $122,460 all-in price should be considered a fantastic bargain for the attentive English car dealer who purchased it. No doubt this car will be on offer in the near future for significantly more than its sale price. With perhaps 100 examples ofroadworthy SVs and just a mere handful of truly well-restored cars in existence, SV values can only go upwards over time. In America a good SV was a $150,000 car five years ago, with a Ferrari Daytona in similar condition being the same price. Today very nice examples of an SV are more like $250,000, with Daytonas bringing only half that number in many cases.—Joe Sackey (Historical and descriptive information courtesy of Bonhams.)• 1972 Lamborghini Miura SV Comparables Lot #5I SN 5064 Condition: 1 Christie's; Pebble Beach, CA; August 18, 2002 Sold at $270,000 SCM ID# 29064 58  1973 Lamborghini Miura SV Lot #23, S/N 4820 Condition: 2+ Premier Resource; NY, NY; November 27, 1999 Sold at $144,500 SCM ID# 1668 Sports Car Market

German Car Profile 1965 Volkswagen 21-Window Deluxe Micro Bus Chassis number: 255115238 W hen the boxy Volkswagen Transporter arrived on American shores in 1949, its effect and influence was immediate. Using standard Beetle components, it was easy to maintain and was one of the best ways to move small groups of people. Dubbed the "Micro Bus," Volkswagen's unique Transporter survived through the decades and evolved into several different vehicles. Its combination of economy and practicality made it a hit with the flower-power generation of the 1960s. The rarest of the Micro Buses is the 21-Window WalkThrough, shown here. It was in many ways the Cadillac of VW buses, as it was adorned with lots of trim and amenities absent on other buses. The standard configuration provided a bench front seat, but the Walk-Through was fitted with two separate front seats so the passenger could walk to the back of the bus without exiting. This two-owner, California black-plate, 31,000-mile, rustfree Volkswagen received a no-expense-spared restoration by its previous owner. Single-stage urethane paint, completely redone brightwork, and new wide whitewalls help make this example a show winner. Running on a 12-volt electrical system and prepared for any adventure with its deluxe tool kit and spare tire, no detail was missed for either ease of operation or pleasure of ownership. Complete with its factory sliding sunroof and a fully restored custom luggage rack, this Micro Bus is fit for any locale, be it a concours field or an afternoon at the beach. Finished in two-tone turquoise with a light gray interior, it is attractively equipped with such deluxe features as a chrome ashtray, original Sapphire push-button AM radio, coat hooks, grab rails and jail bars on the rear windows. This VW bus sold for $38,500, including buyer 's premium, at RM's Monterey auction, August 17, 2002. Number produced  Original list price  Tune-up  Years produced  Although one of the slowest, most ill-handling vehicles imaginable, I must admit that I smile every time I see one of these at auction, or, far more rarely, going down the road. The shape has an innate, near-Bauhaus purity to it, and ifrestored to the same standard to which they were originally built—they have a level of fit and finish matched only by Mercedes—they are a visual delight. Driving one, however is a different matter altogether Wildly underpowered, and with positively terribring "high-speed" handling, it's hard to Distributor cap  Chassis #  Engine #  Club  the high-priced tin can here loses both virtues. This Deluxe Samba model has loads of expensive and hard-to-restore trim items, such as fulllength "deco" strips of alloy with rubber inserts, complex bumpers and 21 windows. And at nearly $40,000, it is now a relatively expensive toy. With its fully trimmed interior; I doubt anyone will be hauling anything in it except bags of receipts from its restoration.

The advent ofthe 42-hp 1500-cc engine in 1963—initially an option, but fitted in most buses that came to the US—raised the top speed to 65 mph. Travelling at that speed was so scary that the factory installed a governor on the carburetor in 1964. And this was before eager lawyers and the DOT were keeping carmakers on their toes. Despite their mechanical flaws, Micro Buses possessed two powerful virtues when new: they were cheap as dirt and could easily haul all manner of things. When I owned one, I would load my Penton 125-cc motocross bike into the back and head off to the track Strangely enough, 1965 Volkswagen 21-Window Bus Lot #107, S/N 255115238 (same bus) Condition: 2 Citroen 2CV, Mini Cooper, Ferrari GTO (all period icons) VVWCA, 647 Franklin Avenue, Council Bluffs, IA 51503 $15,000-$30,000 Tracking this particular vehicle through the SCM Gold database does provide some information of interest. Unsold at $29,000 at Barrett-Jackson's 2001 Petersen Museum auction in Los Angeles, it sold for $24,840 at the same venue the next year The purchaser was a savvy SCM subscriber with a reputation for turning out brilliantly done Jaguars. He worked his detailing magic on the Micro Bus, added a period luggage rack, and just two months later and 300 miles up the California coast, sold it for nearly $14,000 more. (Of course, his take was less once commissions are factored in, but nonetheless, I'm sure the seller is satisfied with the outcome.) I don't believe VW Micro Bus prices are on a significant upward trend Nicely done ones like this have been in the $30,000-$40,000 range for the past decade. The key here is the underlying model approx. 1.8 million approx. $1,800 $50 $7 1950-67 (21- or 23- window buses only, please) and the level of the restoration. Anything less than perfection, and the value plummets to the high teens. As with many iconic collectibles, these vehicles have risen above their intended purpose to be symbols of an era, reminders of a different time. Before we got day jobs, started wearing neckties and having families that rode around in Chrysler minivans, we wore bell-bottoms, listened to the Grateful Dead and went from concert to concert in VW Micro Buses. In a gangly sort of way, this Micro Bus takes us back to that era. This price, considering the venue, shouldn't be that surprising. After all, icons aren't cheap, especially in Monterey—Jim Schrager (Historical and descriptive information courtesy of RM Auctions.).

Porsche Gesprach / Jim Schrager Pay Me Now, I'll Finish It Later My car is a completely correct early S with stunning Aga Blue (medium dark blue/gray) paint and black interior It has a soft rear window and the ultra-rare factory Sport Seats. We have stripped this rust-free car to the tub and built it back up. The odometer shows 101,000 kilometers, or about 63,000 miles, and seems accurate. lam asking $45,000 for the car when it is done and the potential purchaser does not seem to have any problems with that price. D Here's the rub: the car requires finishing, including the interior; Targa roll bar, Targa top and rear Targa window. Winter is coming and I am running out of weather to work on the car here in Maine. Jam open to selling the car, at a discount, as is. I have offered this to the buyer, but he is not interested, as he very clearly wants the car done so that all he has to do is get in and turn the key. He has countered by offering to put up a refundable deposit, and to look at the car and make a final decision as soon as it is done. At the moment, I am leaning towards taking a deposit from him, to secure his first right of refusal. Do you think this is the best way to go?— FC, via e-mail Dear FC: Do not try to sell something you do not have. Taking a deposit on a car "to be finished" is just asking for trouble. My advice is to offer the car for sale to your buyer exactly as is, for his shop to finish. If he is not interested in that, then do not accept a deposit and do not give away any rights of first refusal. The worst thing that can happen is that you take a deposit, and your potential buyer suddenly becomes your Getting the Targa roof right can be difficult. boss, telling you what type of features he wants on the car even though he has no true ownership position. At the moment, this is still your car to finish as you want. If you give that away, your project will have suddenly gained a controlling partner, even though he really has nothing invested. Suppose you finish it to your standards, but not those of the buyer. If he doesn't like the interior, are you going to keep redoing it until he does? Plus, there is always the risk that you will run into some unforeseen issues as you finish the car. I suggest keeping your buyer informed about your progress, while at the same time continuing to offer the car in its "closer to being done every day" state. When your buyer finds out you are serious about first-come, first-served, he may become more motivated to close a deal with you. On the technical side, one of the big issues I foresee with your car is the Targa top. The early Targa tops for the soft rear-window cars are completely different from all the later tops. The soft rear-window tops are much heavier, as they are considered a structural member of the car. These earMr.Schrager:1 have what I think is an unusually attractive 1967 911S Targa that I am nearly done restoring.

can be tricky to get right, and there are just a handful of people in the country who can do one. Your buyer may know this, and given the price you are talking about, is probably wise to wait and make sure you restore the top properly. Getting it wrong or substituting a later, incorrect top will hurt the originality and value of your cat You have a highly desirable car in attractive colors, and it sounds as if you are doing a first-rate restoration. You should be able to sell it in the $45,000 range you indicate when it is finished without any great difficulty. If you need to bail before it is done, just be aware that you may have to accept a very steep discount, as most high-end buyers today are in search of immediate gratification. Also, most enthusiasts are aware of the horrors that can come with buying someone else's unfinished project, no matter how well-intentioned you might be. ("Gee, where did I put that coffee can full of interior fasteners?") All early S cars (1967-73) have been appreciating at the head of the market, as their responsive driving qualities are being discovered by collectors. They also represent an important and vibrant part of Porsche's history. So my advice is to stay the course, finish the car, and don't hand out any special rights along the way. CI.IISS■ON CON1 ROL Ic■ 74 Dear Mr. Schrager: I just read your October column, "Choosing Restored vs. Original" (page 59). I commend you for walking a very fine line when advising JA of Scottsdale. Making such a choice is very personal and, as you point out, depends on what the motivation is for having the car. I would only add that when purchasing an original car with patina to be sure that the ancillary items are complete and correct. By this I mean the tool kit and paperwork (owner 's manual, cover for same, service booklet, battery warranty and body care and radio material). Perhaps J am too sensitive to these items as it has taken me years to find them for our Speedster. Frequently they are not to be found at any price! On occasion, I have been taunted by people with multiples of items but have been told they are not for sale, even at an unreasonable price.— Orr Potebnya, via e-mail maswi sysTem Make sure the goodies are included with an original car. Dear Orr: Excellent points, all. Just look at the $3,000 someone was willing to spend on a 1949 Porsche sales brochure, described in this issue on page 68, as an example of how expensive it can be to make your car "completely original."

American Car Profile 1970 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 Rally Sport Chassis number: 124870N588002 ntroduced to compete against Ford's popular and youth-oriented Mustang in 1967, the Camaro' s brawny good looks and high-performance options resulted in an immediate sales success. Building on this, Chevrolet debuted a completely redesigned second breed ofCamaro on February 26, 1970, that was aimed to be "the Corvette for everyday use." I Supported by a new chassis, the Camaro was longer, lower and wider than its predecessor. An angular front end replaced the wellknown bumblebee nose, while leaner doors and a larger glass area complimented the fastback body. Those who opted for the Rally Sport package received a protruding blackout front grille with center bar, large parking lights and bumperettes. The Z128 option featured a rear spoiler and the 360-horsepower engine. An overwhelming success, the redesigned Camaro sold nearly 125,000 models during its first year of production. The Camaro became so popular that Road & Track magazine would later reflect upon it as the best-looking American car of the 1970s. As such, the automobile's styling and engineering remained virtually unchanged for more than a decade. This restored 1970 Camaro Z128 Rally Sport is finished in Daytona Yellow with a black interior and has 86,000 actual miles on the odometer. The LT1 350-c.i. V8 engine has been completely rebuilt without needing to increase its cylinder bore and is mechanically sound. The interior is cosmetically perfect, with only the clock not functioning. Making an appearance just after its restoration, in the December 1992 issue of Chevrolet and Corvette Buyers Guide, this Camaro is a National award winner, complete with the desirable Rally Sport and Z/28 package intact. This car sold with no reserve for $26,950, including buyer's premium, at RM's New York sale, September 21, 2002. The 19701/2 Camaro and Firebird (so called due to their late model-year introduction) ushered in the era ofthe bloated muscle car Following right on their heels a few months later was the super-sized 1971 Mustang, the second major increase in physical dimensions and weight to which the once-lithe pony had been subjected.

For  example, think of the lean, mean 1964-65 GTO Web site  incorporates some ofEurope 's best-known styling clichés (including Ferrari's egg-crate grille) or a somewhat ungainly Vega with a thyroid problem. While the 19701/2 models benefit from engines that were generally left alone to do their job, the other parts of the drivetrain, switchgear and general appointments were typical of GM's "the customer is the proving grounds" first-year build-quality technique of this era. Additionally, rust mites made short work of these bodies, starting behind all four wheel wells and progressing up to the windshield base and bottom of the back window, along with the lower two-thirds of the doors. Since this example is titled in New York, we hope that the restoration shop properly removed any corroded metal and professionally replaced it. The claim that the cylinder walls didn 't need to be rebored (not that a small-block Chevy has the closest of tolerances) indicates, for a car of this mileage, that regular mechanical maintenance must have been done religiously. The LT1 was the highest tuned small-block in 1970, and factory performance tweaks like solid lifters 2774 4 (Z/28s) often gained performance at the sacrifice of engine longevity. ,  $13,200 $2 :0 - $ 2 3  a 1970 73 32020 - As the values of second-generation Camaros On left side of dashboard, some gas money and a hankering for something ad of the defroster vents engine block, just below cylinder head fled, to barely surviving, to junkyard.

Affordable Classics 1968-69 Dodge Dart V eterans of the '60s remember the Dart for plenty of reasons, most of them related to its economy-car status. The 225-c.i. "slant six" motor, named for its pro- nounced lean to the port side of the car, was known as the motor that thrived on abuse—it never seemed to need any attention to keep it running. The slant-six Darts were practical cars owned by practical people and used as reliable, affordable transportation. The Dart jumped into the muscle car race in 1968 by offering a choice of seven engines: 170and 225-c.i. slant sixes, and 273, 340, 383 and 440 V8s. At the top of the food chain, HurstCampbell built 80 426 Hemi-powered Darts. As part of Dodge's "Scat Pack," the 1968 GT Sport model came with a 340-c.i. engine and twin bumblebee stripes at the rear. A 383 motor was optional, as was a Hurst four-speed or a Torqueflite automatic transmission (threeon-the-tree manual was standard). The GTS hood had twin "power bulges" with air vents, fake mag wheel covers, GTS emblems and body side racing stripes. 1969 brought a new bumblebee stripe (with GT Sport written on the rear flank), a blackedout front grille and rear body panel, and a larger torsion bar when the 383—now uprated to 330 horsepower from 325—was chosen. The librarian's muscle car A properly restored 340 Dart GT coupe will set you back $15,000 to $20,000. Add in a 383 and the cost can go up to $23,000. With a 440, a good and properly documented car will start north of $25,000. And you can more than double that with a factory-built Hemi. Rust is the number one enemy of Darts of all ages. Then there is originality. Hi-po Darts are easily faked, as a 440 or 426 slides into any V8 Dart chassis. Before buying at the top of the Dart gene pool, have the car checked out by a specialist, or at the very least get copies of the original build sheets. Parts, be they exterior trim to interior fittings, are relatively inexpensive, thanks to the huge build numbers for these cars.

Many of the photographs included are directly from the Henry Ford Museum, Chrysler Historical Collection and the Brooks Stevens Museum. In the chapter entitled "Mitchell-Ionia Corporation," Fetherston explains how the Ionia Body, manufactured by the Ypsilanti Furniture Company, was supplied for the majority of GM wood station wagons. After WWII, the firm was controlled by Bill Mitchell and renamed Ionia Corporation. They built complete bodies for Chevrolet, Buick, Pontiac and Dodge, as well as Ford until 1950. Of particular interest is the chapter devoted to the Chrysler Town & Country, as it details the 1941 "Barrel Back" model. The author explains that a small firm in Pennsylvania, Boyerton Body Company, presented a series of proposed drawings for woodys and named one of their proposed station wagon models "Town & Country." The firm was not awarded any work for their efforts, but Chrysler did proceed on their own with the station wagon and conveniently kept the Town & Country name. Chrysler brochures present the prewar Town & Country wagon in elegant country settings, which disproves statements by those opposed to granting Full Classic status to the T&C that the initial wood station wagon was intended as a commercial vehicle. This is a recommended book; however, my enthusiasm is tempered by the author's inclusion of numerous examples of modified woodys. For restorers and enthusiasts, pictures of originals are more useful.

This is an especially interesting portion of the book as it discusses each year separately, and concentrates only on 911s. A chapter on racing in America follows, as well as a chapter on rallying. Little space is spent on the somewhat mysterious 911R, of which just 24 were built, or the 911T/R and 911T/S, which were lightened 911T cars with special engines. New to this edition is a listing of every 1973 Carrera 9 11 Also, Fetherston devotes two chapters to woody toys and fantasy designs. I would have preferred more space given to significant elements of woody history, such as Packard woodys—here limited to just two paragraphs— and important vehicles like the Bohman & Schwarz 1939 Chrysler Imperial and 1947 Nash Ambassador.—Carl Bomstead January, 2003  RS sold, including chassis, engine and transmission numbers, options, color codes and the date of production. This is a tremendously handy record for anyone thinking of buying one of these significant cars, as you can immediately check the numbers on the car you are interested in against what is listed in the book. The RS 3.0 and RSR 3.0 cars also have appendices showing chassis numbers and racing histories. The extremely rare Carrera RS sales brochure is reproduced, as well as copies of the FIA homologation papers for the 1973 RS. There is a large selection of black-and-white photos and a handful of color shots. Some of the photos are reproduced with less than perfect quality, but overall there is a great deal of information here at a fair price. Anyone seriously interested in this period of Porsche racing history will find this book a worthy addition, especially this new, expanded fourth edition.—Jim Schrager Author:  Publisher:  Phone:  Web site:  Size:  ISBN:  Price:  Rating:  to BMW I Cars James Taylor Veloce Publishing +44 (0)1305 260068 wwwveloce.co.uk 1-901295-79-6 10x81/2 inches, hardbound, 192 pages $49.95 BMW buffs 1:rterirc Casual enthusiasts 1:ttf James Taylor covers the whole range of the Z cars from the Zentral Entwicklung (Development Center) of BMW Technilc. You will find familiar cars, like the Z3 and Z8, and less common ones as well, including the Z21 and the Z11. The book begins with a brief history of BMW and recounts its many corporate incarnations. BMW has been a maker of frumpy sedans, revolutionary motorcycles, highly efficient aircraft engines, tiny toy-like "bubble" cars, genuine sports cars and, of course, performance sedans of all types and sizes. Its sporting heritage began in the late 1930s with the striking 327/328 Cabriolets. Some believe that William Lyons of Jaguar took his inspiration from these cars. Compare the profile of a 1938 328 sports roadster with the Jag, and you will find the overall design, along with many details, including the cutdown doors and the rear wheel spats, are faithfully echoed in the XK 120. Well covered here are the three production Z cars, the Z1, Z3 and Z8, as well as a host of concept cars. Of special interest to American readers is the coverage given to the Z1, with its unusual doors that disappeared into the rocker sills. The rear bustle on the Z1 has reappeared on the rump of the latest 7 Series sedans. The Z3 is by far the volume leader among Z cars, with more than 200,000 produced and still counting. It is covered well, with many fine factory photos from the Spartanburg, South Carolina, plant. Also included are complete specifications and additional shots taken inside the US factory. The Z8 receives comprehensive coverage, including the obligatory design comparison to the 507. There is a brief chapter on what to look for when buying a used Z car, along with useful appendices containing numbers of the various models produced. There simply aren't many good books available about the history of the BMW marque. This book makes an excellent addition to any BMW enthusiast's I ibrary.—J.S. 67

otobili by Carl Bomstead The Paper Chase Object: 1949 Porsche Sales Catalog—Lot #68 Auction: Automobilia Auctions; Wethersfield, CT; October 26, 2002 Estimate: None given Sale Price: $3,025, including buyer S premium C ollectors are normally after two types of automotive literature: what they need and what they want. The literature they need generally falls into two categories. First, things like owner's and service manuals help them keep their cars on the road. Second, historical pieces that help determine the original accessories, colors and fabrics used can assure the authenticity of a restoration, while at the same time keeping overzealous concours judges from making unwarranted deductions. UL-APPRAISAL MONTHLY MYSTERY PHOTO Response Deadline January 25, 2003 ROLLS-ROYCE 14 BENTLEY no-reserve, no-nonsense events that are heavily slanted towards rare, highly sought-after automotive literature. This year's sale, which grossed $140,000 for automobilia alone, was no exception. A Ferrari 275 GTB owner's manual sold for $1,089, as did a very rare 1903 Packard sales catalog. The big excitement, however, was over a first-year Porsche brochure. When the "as new" two-color, single-fold four-page sales brochure for the 1949 Porsche crossed the block, it was immediately apparent that it was on the "need" list of several well-heeled and determined bidders. The spirited bidding, from both the floor and the phone, resulted in a very strong sale price of $3,025. The original Type 356 was designated a "VW Sports Car" and was introduced in May, 1948. It was a mid-engine two-seater with a tubular steel frame, and one of the four built currently resides in the Porsche Museum. The Porsche evolution was the Type 356/2, the subject of the brochure shown here, which came a year later and was built in Gmund, Austria. They first appeared at the Geneva auto show in March, 1949, but only 25 were built and they were only available with 1.1-liter engines. It was not until the spring of 1950 that German-made, steel-bodied 356s were offered and imported into the United States. Porsche brochure: one of many paper prizes. The information they want may be related to their next car purchase, or aimed at filling a hole in an ever-expanding collection of automotive "paper." At least an extensive car collection that exists only on paper can be kept in a filing cabinet. Automobilia Auctions' third annual post-Hershey auction offered plenty of both types of items this past November. Under the stewardship of Bentley enthusiast Jerry Lettieri and SCM's own David Brownell, Automobilia Auctions has established a strong reputation by conducting The brochure offered by Automobilia Auctions was Porsche's first sales item and featured the Coupe and Cabriolet. The original Salzburg, Austria, dealer's stamp was in place. The piece was offered by the person who originally obtained it from the dealer in Salzburg, and he also consigned the second and third Porsche-issued brochures from 1950-51 and 1952. Sold together as a two-item lot, the later pieces only realized a total of $495. Owning the first Porsche brochure obviously came at a substantial price. Was the piece worth three grand? To a Porsche historian or serious paper collector, absolutely. As the expression goes, if you don't like the price, find another one. In this case, there are only two or three more.

A brief look at cars of interest that have passed through the SCM stable. *-cr-15- is best Glovebox Notes 2003 Volkswagen Passat W8 Price as tested: $38,450 Likes: Tight, solid construction; roomy and comfortable; excellent materials and design; uniquedesign W8 engine is extraordinarily smooth; powertrain is in its element at (illegal) triple-digit speeds; stealth factor—fast but not too flashy. Gripes: Costs $16,000 more than a standard Passat; W8 feels less gutsy than expected and doesn't have the low-end torque of other V8s; nose-heavy weight distribution takes some of the handling prowess away; blue-lit gauges and red-lit controls are distracting at night. Fun to drive: Fun to look at: 1 ,-A Overall ownership experience: tr** Verdict: Eight cylinders and all-wheel drive on a relatively small sedan should be a dream, but it's not worth the extra $16k over the base 180-hp turbo four. The W8 simply doesn't deliver on performance. Its torque curve and the five-speed automatic's tall ratios seem ideally suited for autobahn duty, not for the States. And luxury buyers expect special treatment. How are volume-oriented VW dealerships going to cater to $40,000 W8 customers, let alone the $75,000 Phaeton prospects?—Bengt Halvorson 2002 Mini Cooper S Price as tested: $21,000 Likes: Visually stunning, retro without being slavish about it. Room for four now-supersized Americans inside. Very clever dashboard. Gripes: Hopeless torque curve with no grunt down low—on both the standard and S models—makes getting off the line in the city a chore. Lower-back support in seats great for some, painful for others. Fun to drive: city**, otherwise TWC* Fun to look at: ***** Overall ownership experience: *tar* Verdict: BMW came so close to making this a perfect pocket rocket; it's a shame their engineers didn't give the engine more torque at low rpm. Otherwise, the car looks right, is priced right, and gets more smiles and thumbs-up than anything else in the same price range that we've driven in the past decade. Wait for the aftermarket torque kit, then buy one.—Keith Martin 75

Continued from page 10 should really include an inflation factor so that the reader can see whether these cars are just holding even with inflation, or are actually beating it. I checked with the Marshall & Swift Valuation Service Manual that publishes inflation indexes for both buildings and equipment. The average inflation factor for all types of equipment from 1982 to the present is 1.48, which would show these cars as being a good long-term investment.—Denis Neumann, Redwood Shores, CA Denis, while your methodology may be actuarially correct, we have found thatfew car collectors factor inflation into the value of their cars. We tend to remember what we paid for them, forget what we spent maintaining them, and view getting our original purchase price back as breaking even. We call it Old Car Math.—ED. Dear SCM: I picked up a copy of Sports Car Market and, after reading it, had a question. Where are the cars you can get for the prices you cite? I have a couple of automotive itches I've been trying to scratch for better than a year and a half and haven't been able to find them at such prices. Vehicle desirability being subjective, I don't claim to know what's hot, just what I want, and I would love to find a perfect 1966-67 fixed-head E-type for $27k. I've found cars in that price range, but none are in top condition. I also want a GT6 Mk I, and even knowing everyone thinks they're mutts, I would buy several if I could find perfect copies for $3,500. Sources I've used are Hemmings, the Internet, and national word of mouth via car friends.—Doug Gentner, via e-mail The values of both E-type coupes and GT6s have increased significantly in the past year which is reflected in our 2003 Price Guide.—ED. Dear SCM: By definition, your readers have, will have, or wish they had a collectible car. The information you provide is invaluable for the "will haves" and entertaining for the "wish they hads" but the "haves" are a bit short-changed. How about a column that provides guidance to those of us who try to maintain and drive these wonderful cars? 76  Professional tips on the many alternatives for servicing, storing and restoring our cars would be a nice addition to an already great publication.—Bob Schiff, Manhattan, NY This is a good suggestion. However the challenge comes in finding the right balance between general information (always check your antifreeze before putting your car away for the winter) that soon becomes superficial and boring, and the overly specific (when replacing the removable clip on the chain on an Alfa Romeo Giulietta, always stuff a rag into the timing chain covet: so that if the clip falls out, it doesn't disappear into the sump) which would be of interest only to a few. But we will keep examining this as a column topic.— ED. Dear SCM: Let me first begin by agreeing with you that a 928 is never likely to rise to "collectible" status. With that said, let me strongly disagree that it is an "F" car. By your own standards, an "F" car is one with no redeeming characteristics. 1 cannot fathom how you can apply that label to a 928. It was and continues to be hailed for its fine handling, great performance, comfort and ground-breaking style, and not by Porsche nuts alone. The 928 was internationally recognized as one of the premier sports cars of all time when introduced. It was chosen by Motor Trend as the best handling car in America for a number of years running, and still resides on their list of "greatest GT cars of all time." I seriously question your lack of bias and editorial credibility when you make strongly negative assertions that stand in the face of reason. I respectfully ask that you restate the tier rating for the Porsche 928. It will never be on the top 10 (or 100) of collectors lists, but it is entirely undeserving of a "no redeeming characteristics" moniker. A Porsche 928 is an engineering delight and a driver's dream, even if it does fail to ignite enthusiasts' passions. Certainly a "C" is more appropriate, as it was a very fine effort by Porsche. Labeling it as an "F" is an absolute joke, with the butt of that joke reading this letter right now.— Martin Minnich, via e-mail Martin, you have a valid point. In the 2003 Price Guide, we have assigned a "C" rating to both the 928S-4 and GT models, and a "D" to the 928 and 928S. I have an admiration for the mechanical capabilities of these cars; I think the previous "F" rating came as an overreaction to the constant we don't get no respect" bleatings of their owners. Sorry about that.—ED. Dear SCM: I was amused when I read your X-pert response to "M.K." in the September 2002 issue of SCM regarding the Porsche 912 (page 14). You guessed it, I own one—a 1969 model with sunroof. Monte Shelton appraised it at $10k shortly after I acquired the car almost three years ago, so it's no fright pig. It always amuses me that 912s are compared to 911s. These are two completely different cars. The 912, being the follow-on to the 356, is nimble, torquey, inexpensive to maintain, comfortable and reliable. I'm 6' 4" tall and 300 pounds, and recently, in complete comfort and with a big smile on my face, drove my 912 to San Francisco and back (via Highway 101, not 1-5). The 912 never was, isn't, and never will be a 911. It wasn't meant to be a 911. It was meant to be an affordable, reliable and fun car to drive. And it is. These comparisons are not much different from the newbie Harley rider who, while perched on his Big Twin in front of Starbucks, cigar in one hand and cell phone in the other, points and giggles at someone riding a Sportster, or those who "tsk, tsk" at the poor Bentley owner who couldn't "afford" a Rolls-Royce. I thought this was all about having fun driving our cars, not about displaying one's portfolio. Lastly, for those self-proclaimed authorities who claim the 912 is "just like an old Volkswagen," may I offer the fact that my wife's original 1965 Volkswagen bug, that she's owned since new, doesn't compare to the 912 in any way. Different animals. All kidding aside, my wife Diane and I both enjoy the magazine.—Paul Johnesse, via e-mail Dear SCM: I've been a supporter of yours over the years and have always enjoyed your style (when dealing with cars). We've spoken a few times over the years at Monterey, etc. I am a (new) subscriber to SCM and usually drop whatever I am doing at the time when a new issue becomes available. My question is, would it be possible for you to list in your auction reports whether a vehicle had a reserve attached when it went to the podium at auction? I am becoming more involved as a consignor and am curious as to whether quality reserve/no reserve vehicles tend to bring more at the hammer. I realize the obvious when consigning that it's a win/win for the auction house if! go no reserve, but is this the best approach when in search of top dollar at a high-end auction?—Eric Parsons, via e-mail Eric, when one of our analysts thinks the reserve status of a car has significance, he notes it in the outcome. As to reserve/no reserve status, without question a no-reserve car attracts a more interested audience when it crosses the block, as it will surely go home with someone new. I'm not convinced that a noreserve car actually brings more money, however. I think the actual amount a car sells for has to do with the way the car is presented, and the job the auction company has done in getting the right bidders to the event.—ED. Dear SCM: This is in regards to your September editorial and general comments in your magazine about the cost and reliability of collector cars. What I remember about cars built in the '50s and the following decades is how unreliable they were, both new and used. My first new car was a '64 Pontiac GTO. The brakes failed the very first day I owned it. The power steering never did work properly. The body creaked and groaned like an old house. Carburetors, points and plugs needed regular adjustment. When you compare those cars with how trouble-free cars are today, it's easy to see how younger collectors can have the mistaken idea that a completely restored car will give years of trouble-free service. The reality is that it will be no more trouble-free than when it was new, and that was nothing to brag about. My other comment is about the lad who wants to broker Ferraris (September 2002, page 14). The advice given reminds me of my father's statement about keeping livestock on his farm. "You raise cattle for show and hogs for profit!"—Denis Neumann, Redwood Shores, CA• Sports Car Market

by Carl Bomstead W hat makes a 1971 DeTomasoPantera worth almost $200k? Absolutely nothing that we can think of. Nobody else could either, as it didn't receive any bids. Stated to be the recipient of an extensive restoration, it was offered on eBay Motors with a $180,000 minimum bid. Seven days after it appeared, it was pulled due to an error—in the required starting bid, we assumed. But no, it reappeared with extensive commentary on the restoration. A full page was devoted to describing the respray the seller alleged cost him $32,000. According to the SCM Price Guide, what he has in paint is about what a decent example should bring. Point to remember when start ing a restoration: the money you put into a car has nothing to do with the money you will get out of it when you sell. Here's another one. An original 1965 Shelby Cobra 427, S/N CSX3173 in red, sold at auction in January 1987 for $250,000. The following year at Monterey, it sold for $235,000 and headed off to Japan where it was reportedly restored and resprayed back to its original silver livery. Offered on eBay Motors this past month, it could only generate $187,100 from 25 bids and was, of course, a no-sale. So far, this is not exactly a money-making proposition. Based on the description of the Cobra, it should be worth at least another $100k. Here's a case where a land auction may be the only place to get that kind of money. We suggest Monterey in 2003. A 1939 Cadillac V16 Series 60 limousine was offered on eBay Motors and was a no sale at $12,100, receiving 28 bids. Only 60 of these were manufactured and they are wonderful cars for CCCA tours, as you can take your family and friends, and even pick up a few hitchhikers without being crowded. In decent condition, $60,000 is not out of line. This one was described as a barn-fresh original car in solid condition. So why the low bids? It had one major, glaring need.. .its V16 engine was cracked in several places. The seller suggested finding a replacement V16, which is next to impossible, so the next best option would be to install a bigblock Chevy engine and drop the front end. You could have the only Cadillac limo hot rod at the next show-n-shine, but the Cadillac-LaSalle Club might question your membership application. This is another example of a collectible car that only has value when it has all its original parts. Take one of them away and you can cut the value by 75% or more. Gas and oil collectors, myself included, missed the boat on this one. A seldomseen 1920s Union Oil Company bench was offered on eBay and was a no-sale after only reaching $1,914.99 with 14 bids. This was well below the reserve and the market value. The bench consists of two seat-back porcelain signs that normally sell for about $2,000 as individual pieces, and a simulated wood bench made of porcelain. This is only the second one of these known in complete condition, and the seller was inundated with inquiries after the auction. I don't know the final selling price, but anything less than $4,000 was a bargain. EBay #733235673—MOHAWK OIL ONEQUART CAN. First bid: $9.99. Number of bids: 21. SOLD AT: $649. Date sold: 11/14/ 2002. The seller states that he found this very collectible one-quart oil can at a garage sale, filled with rusty nails. Chances are he paid about $5, so he made a handsome profit. The buyer did just fine as well, as these normally sell for about $1,000. The only one who didn't make out was the person who held the garage sale, but chances are that unless they read SCM, they'll still think they made the deal of life when they got the guy to buy the dumb old oil can for $5. Sometimes ignorance can be bliss. EBay Motors #1871247908-1977 AUSTIN MINI. First bid: $4,050. Number of bids: 13. SOLD AT: $6,200. Date sold: 11/4/2002. Excited SCM'er Graham Hazlette told us about this purchase he made, and spoke in glowing terms about the seller and his new toy. All the buzz about the new Mini Coopers has increased interest in the originals, and should keep their prices either firm or climbing. Cute car, smooth transaction, excellent value—Graham did just fine. EBay #732256703—GRETZ BEER CAN WITH ALFA ROMEO. First bid: $1. Number of bids: 23. SOLD AT: $977.01. Date sold: 11/11/ 2002. 1 can understand spending crazy money for an oil can with interesting graphics—I've done it myself on several occasions— but $1,000 for a beer can? Maybe it was the image of a Giulietta Spider on the can. Does this mean you can trade a dozen Gretz beer cans for the actual car? EBay #733202995-1925 FORTUNE CAR MASCOT. First bid: $500. Number of bids: 7. SOLD AT: $2,225. Date sold: 11/17/ 2002. There are car mascots, and then there are pieces of automotive art such as this. This example is in wonderful condition, has clear signatures of both the artist and the foundry, and has a documented history as being issued in the mid-1920s. Obviously, for the serious collector the pleasure of having it on the display shelf will outlast the pain of writing the check. EBay #1781510340-1930s ELECTRIC TOY CAR IN BOX. First bid: $49.99. Number of bids: 16. SOLD AT: $511. Date sold: 11/01/ 2002. This delightful toy dates from the '30s and is complete with a colorful box and stee fence. Called The Kokomo Electric Car, the box states that it cost $10—more west of the Mississippi—so it was expensive in its day. The box, in excellent condition, added at least 50% to the value of this unusual toy.• SUBSCRIPTION INFORMATION Sports Car Market magazine (ISSN #1527859X) is published monthly by Keith Martin Publications, PO Box 16130.
