Rolls-Royce Motor Cars embarks on a second century of innovation while celebrating the many achievements of its first. Commemorating the 100-year anniversary is an experimental motor car designed to combine the marque's wonderful heritage with a cutting-edge 21st-century character. 100EX captures the essence of Rolls-Royce tradition, while speaking volumes about tomorrow's technology. The spirit embraced during the 1930s—the glory days of top-down motoring—is interpreted through modern design and engineering that preserves the aura of the greatest cars of eras past. While 100EX is a true one-off Experimental Car that will never be seen in a showroom, should a series production convertible be introduced, surely it will owe much to this very special motor car.

Shifting Gears , Keith Martin  Ferraris as Everyday People I A couple of years later, at my first Mille Miglia, a 250 TdF caught my eye. It was bright red with a yellow and blue stripe, parked after the event at the Master's Hotel in Brescia. Covered with mud, bugs and road grime, it sat with its windows down. When I peeked inside I saw it was littered with food wrappers, empty pop cans, coffee cups, and—this being Europe—cigarette butts. It had done its job, transporting its pilot and co-pilot through the 1,000mile rally, and looked the part. DRIVE ME, PLEASE in the back without needing chiropractic treatment afterwards. What I miss most about the 330, which has since gone on to a subscriber in the Midwest, is the way it commanded the road. No, it wasn't the fastest car out there, and certainly not the best braking or handling. But it made a nerve-tingling sound through its four-tipped exhaust, and could cruise effortlessly at 100 mph, moving through a crowded freeway like a cutter through a regatta of sailboats. It was a regal, high-performance machine in 1962, and more than 40 years later, it still carried itself like one. Ferrari 2+2s of any flavor are surprisingly large cars, especially for those used to the tight-fitting 308 series. Real people can actually fit into the rear seats, and the trunks do what trunks are supposed to do: hold stuff. Making runs to Costco for supersized packs of barbecue supplies was one of the 330's regular assignments, and we discovered that a used push lawn mower picked up at a garage sale fit too, once we tied the trunk lid down. On more than one occasion we went with another couple to the opera, and our friends—actual, fully grown humans with normal-sized legs—could ride KERMIT AND THE CHEESE WEDGE Our 308 GT4, burgundy with boxer black, offered a lesson in rapid acceleration, excellent seating position, and forgettable cheese wedge styling. At the same time, the rear seats (read that as "extended luggage area") were a perfect place to stash a couple of sleeping bags, a camping tent and a Coleman cooler. The little Dino was an arresting site in National Park campgrounds surrounded by Class A motorhomes and Suburbans with rooftop carriers. Then there was our red/black 308 GTSi that taught me about the ambient 100-degree temperature in the trunk of all 308s. Trying to bring home an ice-cream birthday cake by storing it there was a bad idea. 12  I liked these Ferraris that were being used as cars, and I've always treated our Ferraris in similar fashion. Take my first V12, a 1962 330 America that we pulled from a barn in Montana. It ran well enough, so we only had to spend $20,000 on simple things like a brake job, valve adjustment and some interior work. ("How did you get so much done for so little?" Ferrari owners usually ask.) In the parking lot, a fellow in blue jeans and a plaid Pendleton shirt was loading a half-dozen eight-foot 2x4s into his red 308 GTS. One end went down into the footwell, the other rested on the panel behind the built-in rollbar. It worked just fine. remember the first time I saw a Ferrari being used to haul lumber. It was in the late '80s and I was in the midst of rebuilding my front porch. I'd driven my 1983 Jeep Grand Wagoneer to the local lumberyard for a couple of sheets of plywood. Our most recent Ferrari was a light metallic green 308 Mondial QV. While it didn't have the visual or physical presence of the 330, it was still a Ferrari, with the whir of the cambelts making exactly the right noise as you ran through the gears. We would fire up the Ferrari, and while its engine warmed, wipe the film from the salt air off the windshield. Using only first gear, we crawled at the official 15-mph speed through the village, headed towards Highway 101. As we covered the two miles to the highway, the car's idle went from lumpy to smooth, and as the gearbox oil began to circulate, thoughts of shifting from first to second changed from a hopeless fantasy to a stiff but possible reality. One of my favorite memories revolves around our beach house in Neskowin, OR, and using the Mondial to get a morning coffee and paper. The nearest place for both was about ten miles away, in Cloverdale. From behind the wheel, you didn't see the odd color of the car (which gave it its nickname, "Kermit") or its butt-heavy appearance. Instead, through the windshield and over the sharply raked nose, you saw the asphalt being devoured by a sports car pushed by an all-aluminum, four-cam V8. By the time we hit the highway, the water temperature would be (80 degrees), and we would quickly run to redline in first, second and third on the gently curving, uphill, right-hand turn that takes you north. Like a racehorse being let out for exercise, the Mondial knew it had ten miles of interesting road ahead, and that it would be asked to stretch its muscles just a bit. If you take a slight detour through Pacific City, you come across a rarely used two-lane road that's a slightly longer but vastly more interesting route. It's all third and fourth gear, between 90 and 110 mph, with car and driver both grinning widely. A 330 Ferrari that really hauls. Half an hour later, we would be back at the beach house, happy after our little jaunt. While the rest of the world thought we had just gone out for coffee, the Ferrari and I knew we had just had another adventure. DRIVE FIRST, COLLECT SECOND But regardless of value, what all Ferraris have in common is that they like to be driven. The farther you push them, the happier they—and you—will be. If you're lucky enough to be a Ferrari owner, my charge to you is to find ways to use your car, as often as possible and in as many different ways as you can. This issue is dedicated to Ferraris, and includes commentary about cars from inexpensive 328s to million-dollar Formula One racers. Each model has its strengths and weaknesses, and each has its group of supporters and detractors. While the Monterey weekend will be full of Ferraris being celebrated as collectibles, recall that they all started out as just cars of one sort of another, each serving a different segment of the enthusiast community. Treat your Ferrari like a car, and it will treat you like Nuvolari. That's not a bad exchange.• Sports Car Market The drive home was more relaxed. There are no cupholders in the Mondial, and when you're shifting, steering and braking with a 20-ounce container of piping hot liquid between your legs, you tend to exercise a little caution.

It got me to thinking and I looked through my auction catalogs from years ago (I have about 800-plus in my collection) and I found some incorrect data in your Tucker sales list. It was S/N 1045, not 1036 that was offered at Meadow Brook in '98, unsold at $280,000. Other sales not included in your database: •S/N 1045 in unrestored condition from a Sarasota, FL, museum with only 3/10 of a mile was offered by Gary Bennett's Auction Company in '90, not sold at $700,000. (Same car as above, but was originally gray, not dark blue.) •S/N 1036 in unrestored condition was a no-sale at Gary Bennett's auction in '91 for $450,000. • S/N 1038 was sold at a G. Potter King sale in Atlantic City '89 for $155,000. •S/N 1036 was offered at Barrett-Jackson's '94 sale, and sold at $330,000. •S/N 1045 sold at Barrett-Jackson in 2000 for $380,000. •S/N 1029 sold at "The Auction" in Las Vegas in '94 for $255,000. •S/N 1045 (freshly restored) was offered at "The Auction" in '91 and sold for $475,000. •S/N 1029 was offered at Kruse Auburn in '94, but not sold at $280,000. •S/N1 1000 (Tin Goose) and S/N 1002 were offered at Kruse Auburn in '95; 1000 was not sold at $400,000 and 1002 sold for $200,000. These are just a few that I found quickly. I hope this is helpful to those interested in past Tucker sales.—Eric Balazs, Toledo, OH PENNIES ON THE PORSCHE DOLLAR Dear SCM: As a 914 nut who has been following 914 pricing for the last 10 years, your profile of the hot-rod 914-6 in the July issue could not have been more right on. 18  Tucker #1043 sold for $495,000. I've known many 914 owners, past and present, who have been involved with hot rod 914-6s, and as you say, pricing is based mainly on the quality of the conversion and combination of options. Your negative rate of return of 30 cents on the dollar is very accurate for conversions, as I had the opportunity to experience first-hand, with my first 914 "investment." Even high quality, tube-chassis racers with well-known engine builders' powerplants have a hard time exceeding $40,000-$50,000 with a motivated buyer. The auction example was fully, yet fairly priced, and backed up with accurate information. I do believe the $100k spent is not grossly exaggerated, as anyone buying custom race parts with the Porsche label knows quality costs. I currently run a fully modified, GT4R-class, 2.8-liter 914-6 with a Fabcar tube chassis and fiberglass body kit in PCA Drivers Education. My daily drivers are a 1974 3.2-liter 914-6GT, a 1988 911 cab, and a 2004 GT3. 1 feel blessed every time the garage door slowly rises and my eyes make contact with my four Porsches (always a two-syllable word). Sometimes when I'm reading SCM, I laugh so hard I could cry and my wife wonders what could be so funny in a magazine about collector cars. Keep up the great evaluation and commentary.— Cliff Horn, Barrington, IL VERY LUCKY Dear SCM: I was one of the misguided souls (or was I the only one?) to contact Editor Martin after his first column about the Saab, and actually stopped by the SCM offices to look at the old girl. Fortunately for me, I think, it did not start. I say "fortunately," because I have always been attracted to different oddball cars of this nature and have sampled both their charms and temperament. (Citroen Ami 6 wagon, anyone?) Though I passed on the Saab, after several months of looking for a per- fectly reasonable way to waste money on an old relic, an attack of semi-rationality led to the purchase of a '72 BMW 2002 that I now use when my thirst for vintage motoring needs to be quenched. Don't get me wrong, I find the idea of a classic car that actually starts and stops and does not overheat in traffic while providing daily driver services disgusting. How can one go about his business without a large pool of oil, stuck brakes and dead batteries? I applaud your willingness to sacrifice good money keeping the two-stroke Saab in motion. Good luck, and I hope you continue to enjoy it, and don't try to find how strong the roof really is.—Ron Levy, Portland, OR Lucky now has a rebuilt clutch slave cylinder, and is ready to rumble. Or rattle. Or both. At the last SCM staff meeting, I asked who wanted to drive the car to Monterey. Suddenly, everyone had to leave for an urgent errand—ED. MINI CON Dear SCM: In putting my '66 Riley Elf Mini drophead on the market, I ran across a scam new to me and my friends, and thought you might be interested in hearing about it. My Internet listing elicited an e-mail from a Dublin "buyer of cars and electrical electronics for European customers" who had a client ready to buy it. A subsequent e-mail said payment and shipping arrangements were being made, but the buyers were not very curious about the car's condition, and ignored my offer of an inspection report.

 my selling price from an "earlier offer that did not work out, and that I could refund the balance," the red flags started waving. (A professional magician by trade, I've had plenty of experience in deception.) A call to my Mini-expert friend and MiniMania owner Don Racine confirmed my suspicions: This was definitely a scam that's been going around. They send you the check for too much, you send them the difference, and then it turns out the cashier's check is a fake to begin with. Since then I've received two other similar offers from "agents for motivated buyers." Seller beware!—Dick Newton, San Rafael, CA A HAPPY NEW YORK KHAMSIN Dear SCM: Poor Jim Schrager! He can't get his Maserati Ghibli engine to work in South Bend. One might sense that you would run into this problem before plopping down the dough for an old Trident. There's no problem finding mechanics here in the Big City, though. Still, I passed on a Ghibli. Yes, it's a showstopper, and will match a Ferrari 275 GTB4 or Lamborghini 400 UT 2+2 around the track. But underneath it's yesterday's car, so I went with the Khamsin I think Gandini (of Miura and Countach fame) made it even better looking than the Ghibli. Plus, the Khamsin has fully independent suspension and plenty of room inside. Forget the Ghibli oversteer; the Ithamsin sticks to the road and handles the twisties as good as my WRX. Those maligned Citroen hydraulics are very reliable and are the cheapest part of the car to maintain. They certainly make the car both unique and a ton of fun to drive. Oh yeah, there are four Citroen gurus east of the Mississippi. Where is South Bend, anyway?—Jordan Glaser, Brooklyn, NY AN UNHAPPY INDIANA MASER Dear SCM: I just finished reading Jim Schrager's article regarding his dissatisfaction with the Maserati Ghibli (Porsche Gesprach, July 2004). I read the article with great enthusiasm since I consider myself a Maserati en- September 2004  thusiast and I currently own a '68 and '69 Ghibli, a '70 Indy, and a '74 Bora. I must say I am not very knowledgeable about Porsches (other than knowing what the various models look like), but I would tend to differ with some of Mr. Schrager's conclusions and comments about the Ghibli. The two main conclusions that I gleaned from the article were that a poorly running Ghibli is not as desirable as a nicely-running 911 and that Mr. Schrager likes Porsches—a lot. It seems that Mr. Schrager fell into the trap that many vintage car room in the Ghibli than in a 911 based on my memories of driving a 911. The Ghibli's high dash, low roofline, and low seating position are things that I find desirable. When tuned properly, the Ghibli performance certainly feels comparable to my C5 Corvette. Obviously the handling and acceleration is not the same, but for a car that is more than 30 years older, it is certainly respectable. And the sound of the four-cam Maser V8 is hard to beat. Regardless of opinion, I'm not so sure these cars should even be compared. Aside from You Write We Read failure to recognize or price the rarest, most desirable variant of the species, the 2002 turbo. Just 1,672 examples were built from July 1973 through July 1975, and while this run is a large number by, say, Ferrari standards, it certainly makes it exclusive in terms of "Neu Klasse" production. One assumes that hard driving, the propensity of the early turbos to self-destruct, and the dreaded tin worm have lessened the number of existing examples substantially. While I've never seen one at auction, cars do change hands on eBay and privately in the $17,500-$25,000 range, which clearly differentiates them from run-of-the-mill 2002s. As long as the basic model is worthy of listing and collecting, why not recognize this special version as well?—Larry Schwarz, Doylestown, PA Larry, well add them to the next Price Guide. However, as they were never officially imported to the US, it's rare to find one here.—ED. INSURANCE ISSUES Maserati Khamsin, the sucessor to the Ghibli. buyers fall into: not buying the best car you can find, choosing instead a "good deal" that may need some sorting. For Masers (as well as Ferraris, Lambos, etc.), just because one can purchase the car does not mean that one can keep it running and enjoy it. It goes without saying, but I say it anyway, "you get what you pay for" is something that should not be ignored when purchasing a vintage collector car. While I agree that good Maser mechanics are hard to find, they are out there. I do most of the work on my cars myself, and once you know where to get advice and parts, the cost to maintain good performance is not very high, and not particularly difficult. As for ride, comfort, interior room, and performance, I think I will have to agree to disagree. My wife and I drove our '69 Ghibli from Houston to Denver, then to Monterey for the festivities when Maserati was the featured marque in 2000. We found the car to have plenty of room, a comfortable ride and even adequate air conditioning (admittedly, as long as you're not in bumper-to-bumper traffic). To me, there is considerably more perhaps entry price, the similarities diminish rapidly. The Ghibli is a limited-production car (fewer than 1,200 built), front-engined, with a quad-cam V8 and four twin-choke Webers, and has quintessential Italian style. I don't see the 911 as an alternative. One of the best things about these old Masers is the fact that they were hand-built and well designed, particularly in their simplicity. These attributes make the cars comparatively easier to maintain than other Italian exotics of that era. Perhaps Mr. Schrager gave up too quickly, or perhaps he is too entrenched in the Stuttgart passion. (As I am with Modena.)—Dean Rietz, Houston, TX TURBO 02'S? Dear SCM: I love your magazine and read it cover to cover as soon as it arrives. Meanwhile, I have stacks of unread Car & Driver, Auto Week, Sports Illustrated, etc. sitting around collecting dust. However, I have a nit to pick with your price guide for German cars (July 2004). I collect BMW 2002s, and my issue is your Dear SCM: That was an interesting story outlining the steps Tom Radow went through to get an equitable settlement for his stolen Porsche 944 (Legal Files, July 2004). While it was helpful because it showed how he objectively established the value of his car and used this in his negotiations with his insurance company, the article contained a few flaws. Specifically, Mr. Radow referred to possibly sueing his insurance company over the disputed value. Sony, you cannot do that—by the terms of the insurance contract you must arbitrate the dispute. One can only sue one's insurance company for instances of breach of contract or bad faith, and dispute of value is neither. Also, the term "fair market value" is used, which may very well be a business term, but it is not an insurance term. The issue at hand is "actual cash value." Although it may function nearly the same, the terms are not the same, and it is the insurance concept that applies. The article was useful because it showed the need for an objective basis for arriving at the valuation of a vehicle. It follows then that a proper appraisal before the loss of the car may very well be appropriate. I think one should also gather 19

You Write We Read from his experience that shopping insurance companies for issues other than mere price of insurance is in order, as different insurance companies have deserved reputations for their claims handling practices, which often conflict with the image their slick advertising campaigns put forth. Here's a tip from one with over 25 years in the insurance claims field: With good documentation, the policyholder almost always wins at arbitration. That's why your insurance company doesn't go out of its way to remind you that you can arbitrate if you don't like its valuation.—George E. Giese, Portland, OR John Draneas responds: You are correct that one's insurance policy may well require arbitration of claims, and should be reviewed before filing a lawsuit. But there is no impediment to an arbitration or lawsuit, as the policy requires, based on a disagreement as to value. The insurance company's failure to pay the actual cash value is a breach of contract, and gives rise to the claim. And I couldn't agree more about documentation. Thanks, George, for comments from a professional.

Even so, I really believed the 928 was being defamed. Well, last week a '79 SC Targa was left on my porch, and subsequently purchased at a price I couldn't refuse. After 10 years of doing without, now there's another 911 in the barn and the thrill is back. I guess I'd just forgotten how much pure fun they are, and I'm glad I didn't mail that letter.

Dear SCM: In your review of the McCormick Palm Springs Auction (July 2004), you state that Lot #174, ostensibly a 1965 Shelby 427 Cobra roadster, S/N CSX 4020, was "one of 348 built during 1965-67." Unfortunately, this is what the heavy promotion of replicas by the original manufac- of establishing values after a loss. I am in the insurance business, and have had several experiences over the years with the 20 or so cars in my stable. S/N 4020. Built in the '90s, titled as a '65? turer gets you. (Though "replica" here is used in the truest sense of the word.) Any "Cobra" with a VIN that doesn't begin with CSX 2 or CSX 3 is not an original. The CSX 4000 series cars are very close, but they have no affiliation with the British firm of AC Cars, which constructed the originals, and they are not 1965 Cobras. As the first of the 4000 series was built some 30 years later, how could they be? Thinking it was an original, your auction reporter didn't check to see if the car had fiberglass or alloy bodywork. Either way, I'd wager that the bid of $87,000 was a lot closer to market than he realized.—Ned Scudder, La Jolla, CA GOOD ADVICE ON BAD FAITH Dear SCM: Thank you for publishing the article on the woes I believe one of the most important lessons to be learned is try to establish the value before the loss rather than after. Make sure the insurance agent or representative is made aware of what has been done to the vehicle to enhance the value. They may seem at times not to care, but to have it on record can only help your case at time of loss. By far the best advice one can offer is to purchase insurance from the right company on the right type of policy. Several companies, including all specialty collectors insurance, offer a valued or agreed value policy. A very interesting source can be found at www.badfaithinsurance. org, maintained by FBIC, a consumer advocacy group. They publish a list of insurance companies ranked by their bad faith charges. The company listed as number one on the "good" side is Chubb, who I know has a valued policy, and in my experience is the most standup company in the business when it comes to handling claims in a fair manner.—Jim Peterson, San Francisco, CA. 104 67 81 94 143 23 9, 17 7 75 32,76 95 127 120 51 104 145 109 124 27, 29 103 138 4 Eurocoachworks  Exotic Car Transport  112 84 Fairfield Concours d'Elegance  105 Fantasy Junction  Featherman & Co  Ferrari Book  71 69 FerrariBuy.com  FerrariPortal.com  Ferraris-Online  Fourintune Garage Inc  GermanCarPortal.com  Glenmoor Gathering  Gooding & Company  Grand Touring Cars Inc.  Gregor Fisken  Griot's Garage  Grundy Insurance  Guild of Auto Restorers  Hagerty  Hamman Classic Cars  The Healey Werks  Heritage Classics  Hershey Auction  142 141 139 144 125 144 139 112 2 47 89 35 100 115 148 39 31 80 113 Homeless Carriage  Hyman Ltd  Intercity Lines  Italian Concours d'Elegance JC Taylor   JJ Best Banc & Co  JR Rouse  Kirkland Concours d'Elegance Lamborghini of San Francisco  Maranello Auto Sales  Maybach  Meadow Brook Concours  Mecum Auctions  Meguiar's  Mercedes  Morgan West  Morris & Welford  Muncie Imports & Classics  Niello Concours at Serrano  Northshore  Palm Springs Auctions, Inc.  Parish Heacock  Passport Transport  144 121 37 43 65 99 85 133 91 86 131 13,87 21 73 101 41 96 119 143 123 101 79 Pebble Beach Charity Raffle Premier Financial  Putnam Leasing   Raymond Milo/BBone  Re-Originals  RM Auctions  Rolls-Royce  Ron Tonkin GranTurismo  RPM Auto Books  Russo and Steele  53 SCM Insider's Seminar  Silver Auctions  Steve Austin's Automobilia  Steve Austin's Great Vacations  Swissol International  Symbolic Motor Cars  Tarleton Bull  Vintage Motors of Sarasota  Vintage Racing Services  Vintage Rallies  Woodside Credit  Zoo Speed  Zytnol  111 147 15 137 93 62 10,11 59 138 107 83 135 142 116 57 3 98 128 97 122 25 97 117 Sports Car Market

Sharp observation 1: "Looks like a Studebaker from the rear." (This in South Bend, Indiana, former home of Studebaker.) Sharp observation 2: "Dad, it looks like some steam is coming out of the front." Repairs: Installed fuel-pump toggle switch. Pads purchased: Fire extinguisher, toggle switch. Discoveries: Perhaps we ought to fix the ill-fitting radiator cap? Running tab: $19.95 for fire extinguisher, $11 for switch. $2,571.47 total since purchase. Cost per mile so far: $2.49 (over 1,031 total miles). Moving on: Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota, beckons, but first a little maintenance and repairs. T he Fiat actually looks good from about 20 feet or so. I was briefed on a number of issues with it, the most notable being that each time the car was used, the hood had to be opened and the wire to the fuel pump connected or disconnected. I had a switch installed inside to turn it off/on, and I also put a fire extinguisher inside the car. Unfortunately, a significant part of the time I had the car it rained, so I kept the car indoors. When I did get it out, it ran very well and the engine sounded great. The Fiat brought back many old memories and when parked next to my Fiat 500 and Fiat 600 it looked huge. I wish cars still had quarter windows and simple engine bays like the Fiat. 1 drove it around 140 miles, with about 120 of those on the trip to Chicago. My 13-year-old daughter Sarah, decided to go with me, so I had her ride in the back seat because of the absence of seat belts. This was also the first time she was introduced to the concept of 4 x 40 air conditioning. (All four windows down at 40 mph.) Of course, I selected the warmest day we've had this summer (about 87 degrees) to drive into the city—and in the late afternoon during rush hour. (What was I thinking? Or was I thinking at all?) The car did okay though, and we stopped twice to make sure all was well. Unfortunately, around Chicago's Circle Exchange (1-94/1-290), traffic was backed up and the temp gauge started moving towards the red. A little steam made it necessary to pull off on the Canal Street exit. (Ironically enough, within walking distance of managing editor Jeff Sabatini 's apartment—ED.) pride of ownership ... We stopped at a gas station to let the car cool down, added some coolant (which reminded me of trips with my dad in his Fiat 600, which, no matter where we were going, always seemed to be about looking for sources of water), and then resumed the journey. We were within 20 miles of our destination and traffic had started to clear, but by the time we got there the car was steaming and had coolant coming out onto the driveway.—Najeeb Khan I first saw the Fiat in my dad's airplane hanger and he asked me to dust it off so he could take some pictures. When my Dad asked me to drive it with him to Chicago, I was really excited but kind of confused, because he always flies everywhere, and we had just flown to Chicago the weekend before. Maybe driving the FIAT would be like flying. I loved the Fiat at first sight, especially the color, because light blue is one of my favorites. It turned heads pretty much everywhere we went. It gives a very smooth ride and the seats were surprisingly comfortable for an old car. On the way to Chicago everyone passed us mostly waving or smiling or giving us the "thumbs-up." It was quite an adventure.—Sarah Khan Since we've now covered over 1,000 miles since purchase, its clearly time, if not past time, for a major service. After all, who has ever seen a FIAT go any further without some sort of maintenance. At the top of our list is to fix the windshield gasket, plus find the a radiator cap and duplicate keys.

Legal Filles John Draneas Limited Editions, Unlimited Conflict For every ZR-1, Indy Pace Car or Cobra R out there, a hundred badge-and-tape specials are sitting in garages while their owners wait in vain for prices to go up T hink of all the "limited edition" models that have become available in recent years, cars like the Mini Cooper Works, the 007 James Bond Ford Thunderbird, the PT Dream Cruiser, and what seems like at least a dozen different special editions of the Miata. The list keeps getting longer every year, but you've got to wonder, are these cars really special or just a marketing come-on? Though our standard position is that "instant collectibles" are not good investments, the equation is actually a little more complicated. Undoubtedly, there are some limited-production cars that will at least carry a higher resale value than their unlimited-edition counterparts because of their rarity, packaging, or a combination of factors related to their special status. But of course, for every ZR-1, Indy Pace Car or Cobra R out there, a hundred badge-and-tape specials are sitting in garages while their owners wait in vain for prices to go up. Say that you decide to buy an "instant collectible" based on a representation by the manufacturer or dealer that turns out to be false. Do you have legal recourse? Let's take a look at a couple of case files and see what we can learn. QUICKENING THE PACE The dealer weed that the Indy Pace Car 'Stang was going to be a lucrative investment, and would appreciate just like the Corvette. Ford's plans were to build only 2,800 Mustang Indy Pace Cars—fewer than one per dealer— with production ending after the Indy 500. The dealer ended up selling him a new 1979 Mustang Indy Pace Car at MSRP, about $9,000. The plaintiff signed on the dotted line, took delivery and started cruising around looking for lots of thumbs ups and stares from gawkers. But instead he saw "quite a few" other guys doing the same thing—in the same model Indy Pace Car. He returned to the dealer and asked what was going on. The dealer fessed up that Ford had flooded the market with the Indy Pace Car Mustangs. It did not stop producing them after the Indy 500, and in fact, was still making the cars. The dealer even had another one to sell. Worse for the plaintiff, another local dealer had lowered its asking price to $7,400, and others Our first case deals with an "instant collectible" from 25 years ago. Our plaintiff visited his Ford dealer and inquired about purchasing a 1979 Ford Mustang Indy Pace Car. He told the dealer that he was impressed that the 1978 Corvette Indy Pace Car had doubled in value from $14,000 to $28,000 in just one year, and he wanted in on the action. 24  99■1 (), 1 cue  e Car around the country were selling the cars in the $5,000-$7,500 range. The plaintiff sued Ford and the dealer for violation of the Vermont consumer protection statute by misrepresenting the Indy Pace Car Mustang as a limited-edition car. The jury awarded the plaintiff compensatory and punitive damages of $40,000, which was more than triple the amount the plaintiff paid for the car. Not a bad deal. Even after the plaintiff's legal fees were paid, he undoubtedly came out further ahead than any other Mustang Indy Pace Car owner. NO FREEBIES, NO FAIR Our second case file involves the purchase of a 1998 Mercedes-Benz SLIC230. The plaintiff placed a $1,000 deposit against a $42,000 list price in 1996, with expected delivery in about 18 months. By being one of the first 7,000 SLK buyers, the plaintiff was slated to become an "SLK Charter Owner," and eligible to receive special promotional materials from Mercedes that included a personalized letter to the owner, four personalized CDs, a special key chain, a special photograph of an SLK prototype, and a family album of previous Mercedes automobiles. This promotional package was supposed to make the first 7,000 SLKs especially valuable to collectors. Alas, nothing seemed to go right with this deal. The dealer ordered the car as a stock order in its name—not as a special customer order—so Mercedes did not send any of the promotional materials with the car. Even worse, the dealer tried to cancel the order and refund the plaintiff's money, telling her that it wasn't getting any SLKs, when in fact it had already received four. After her attorney threatened a lawsuit, the dealer put her back on the waiting list, and ultimately delivered an SLK to her at list price, but she never got the promotional materials. So she filed suit, and Mercedes offered to settle the case by providing a full set of the promotional materials, together with a personalized letter to her, and an affidavit certifying the authenticity of the materials. The plaintiff initially accepted the settlement—until she saw that the CDs were scratched and the personalized letter had numerous typographical errors. The case went to court, where the ruling was in favor of Mercedes and its dealer. The plaintiff appealed and the appeals court sided with her, but sent the case back to the trial court for further deliberations. We don't know what ultimately happened, but for our purposes, it doesn't matter in the least. By now the cost of all the litigation— in both time and money—certainly made losers out of both sides. And something tells me that the woman wasn't too happy with her new car. STILL WANT TO GET ON THE LIST? So what can we learn here? First, any dealer or manufacturer that suggests to you that any particular model is going to be a great investment is clearly asking for legal trouble. But shouldn't we expect that dealers and manufacturers would also have learned from cases such as these? True, they're probably not going to be making big promises to anyone today. But if they do, make sure to keep some record of what is said and keep track of what production level is promised. Had Ford stuck to its original production plan with the Mustang Indy Pace Car, I don't think the plaintiff would have prevailed. Second, if you want to buy one of the latest and greatest "instant collectibles," make sure you have the right perspective. "Flavor of the month" production cars may sell at a premium when they first come out and demand outstrips supply, but supply always catches up and values plummet unless the numbers stay really small. That's why Ferrari limits production of its top models to "expected demand minus one." If you're going to try to make a profit, take it quickly, before the opportunity vanishes. The better view is that you should only buy cars that you love, because no matter what happens financially the fun factor will still be there as your "profit." If you're determined to view "limited edition" new cars as a way to fund your retirement, you'd better be socking a lot of money from your day job into your 401(k) plan as well.

Ask the Experts Monterey Weekend A Drag Racer's Guide To Monterey The nearest Krispy Kreme may be 90 miles away, but don't worry, you'll be rubbing shoulders with retired racers, TV stars and the folks that you made rich by purchasing clothes emblazoned with their names lina, I receive every motorsports and car publication known and, of course, yours is the only one I read. A fellow dragstrip owner and I wish to visit Monterey this year with our lovely wives. Is there any way you can advise us on what to see and what to pass on? D My buddy has a Ferrari 355 and I'm looking to purchase one of those red cars too. Of course, we want to see the races and the top events too. We already have rooms in Carmel and our travel plans are complete, so we just need a little guidance designed for a couple of rednecks. Thanks for your time and consideration. Steve Earwood, via e-mail Dave Kinney responds: Your e — - mail came just as I was completing work on my new book, The Elegant Chateau and Fine Wine Guide to NASCAR, so I have plenty of time to answer your question. In all seriousness, you are asking the question every wide-eyed kid ever asked himself when he or she first walked into a candy store: How much can I eat before I get a tummy ache? Whether you're a drag racer or an exFormula One racer, a first Monterey vacation should follow pretty much the same itinerary. And while you may find the variety and quality of fried foods in California pales in comparison to what you're used to back home (indeed, the nearest Krispy 'Creme is 90 miles away in San Jose), Carmel is one of the nicest resort areas in the country. Though you can easily spend your entire time on the Monterey peninsula up to your eyeballs in cars (the traffic gets pretty bad too, so be patient), a little sightseeing would not be a complete waste of time. This is one of the more beautiful places in the country, so at least pay attention on the drive out to the track. Which brings us to where you should start your fun: Laguna Seca. Everyone, race fan or not, should head to the Monterey Histories during the day, any day. I took my wife a few years 26  ear Experts: As owner of Rockingham Dragway in North Caro- Robert Talbot store in Carmel, or at the very least pick one up at Pebble. During the concours, you'll get a chance to rub shoulders with retired racers, TV stars and the folks that you made rich by purchasing clothes emblazoned with their names. Visit the artist's tent and buy something for the wall where the Mountain Dew clock now hangs, and soak in the need-to-do-it-at-leastonce-in-a-lifetime sights and smells. Headed for Laguna Seca, a quarter-mile at a time. back—no race fan she—and unexpectedly had to drag her away kicking and screaming when our prearranged dinner date was looming. The historic races are captivating in their diversity, with so many different types and eras of cars that you can't help but see or hear something that makes your spine tingle. If you want to be more selective about which races you catch, may I suggest the always-popular Trans-Am pony cars (you know, the Camaros and Mustangs) and for a bit more exotica, any of the Fl cars. And don't pass up the opportunity to walk through the paddock, where close-up inspection of the machinery and friendly conversation with their owners is often more exciting than the races themselves. Since you mentioned red cars, Concorso Italiano is another do-not-miss. One hint that I cannot stress too much is to get there early (like first thing when it opens on Friday at 9:00 a.m.) to avoid the crowds. Last year's change in venue had more than a few teething problems, and despite the organizers' assurances that things will be better this year, there's no harm in being among the first there. Not only will you avoid the crowds, but you'll also be ready to leave in time to eat a late lunch with your wives, who will likely have become good friends with all the nice shopkeepers in Carmel by then. The Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance is the must of all musts, but be sure to dress yourself up for it with a neck tie from the There are also a variety of events that are invitation only—and if anyone invites you, by all means go. Gordon McCall's Wednesday night "jet party" has been an invitation event for years, and now, with the addition of the Christie's auction this year, it will be bigger still. Speaking of auctions, this year there are more than ever before and they should offer something for everyone in Monterey. Kruse will be there for the first time in conjunction with Concorso. The RM sale is two nights, Friday and Saturday, and is largely a sports car event—I personally love the crowd and the auction action there. Across the street is the Russo and Steele sale, where muscle cars generally rule the day. Bonhams always has a few great surprises, and their sale of "goodies," the automobilia, can be a nice way to acquire a souvenir to bring home without taking out a home-equity loan. Gooding and Company is the new kid on the block (although managing director David Gooding hardly is), and will be the final event of the weekend. I'll be one of the dozens of folks there with sore feet and toothpicks holding my eyelids open. My advice for navigating all these auctions is to just pick two—even I wouldn't attempt to hit all of them. If you manage to attend Concorso Friday morning, spend a full day at the track on Saturday, stroll the green at Pebble on Sunday, and attend an auction or two over the weekend where you buy yourself a nice Ferrari for only a little too much money, you will arrive home exhausted and happy, counting the days until next year.* Sports Car Market Rockingham Dragway

5 W definition. At once Ferrari is the most well known name among the general public, and still among the most exclusive marque for collectors. The cars are valued both as art objects and performance machines. Some Ferraris are as cheap and problematic as any used car, while others are as worth sums beyond the wildest dreams of most. Like a lot of car enthusiasts, I've yet to own a Ferrari, although I've driven a few. Of course, like most of you, I've given quite a bit of thought about how I might conspire to buy one. Some of this longing to enter the fold is fueled by my own Italian name and ancestry. Without a doubt, part of it is that I've just bought into the hype. But even so, the beauty, the sounds, and the exclusivity of the Prancing Horse are real—and really exciting. Yes, other marques have similar appeal, and despite the cliché that nothing else drives (sounds, looks...) like a Ferrari, the point here is not that Ferraris A9ears ol FERRARI IN AMERICA hy is this little car manufacturer from a small town in northern Italy so important? Perhaps because Ferrari embodies so many different, complex, and sometimes conflicting facets of automotive interest without succumbing to any single are necessarily the "best" collector cal.. Certainly we're not blind to smoking V I 2s, the astronomical cost of routine maintenance, or some of the dated styling escapades of the 1 970s and 1980s. Like every other car manufacturer, Ferrari has had its share of hits and misses, trials and tribulations. In the end, if you go over the cars point by point, what makes Ferraris special isn't really that different from what makes any other collector car special. But there is a combination of elements—from the racing history to the legend of Enzo Ferrari himself, from the powerful engines to the collaboration with the best styling houses—that sets the marque apart. It's a self-conscious mystique, true, but it's undeniable that from the very first Ferraris of the late 1940s to the high-tech machines of today, inherent in every car from Maranello is a suggestion that it is striving to be more than it is, that the sum is greater than its parts. So when we sit behind the wheel of a Ferrari, we imagine that we become more than ourselves as well. We're no longer just drivers, we're Ferrari drivers. And in the end, perhaps that's a large part of what moves us to own and collect these cars, that they represent the physical manifestation of our own imagined best selves.—AffSabatini* 1954 Ferrari 250 Monza Sprder IN THIS SECTION: Luigi Chinetti, Jr.  A Life With Ferrari  U.S  Ferrari & Maserati Dealerships  Million Dollar Ferraris  Affordable Classic  Collecting Thoughts  34 34 38 40 42 Monterey Sales  Ferraris at the Rock  Ferraris in the Movies  Fresh Meat  Subscriber Picks  44 Neat Stuff  46 48 48 50 Ferrari Profile  Sheehan Speaks  Race Car Profile  Italian Car Price Guide  Photo: RA9 Auctions 52 54 56 58 60

Ferrari in America Life with Ferrari Luigi Chinetti, Jr.: A Life With Ferrari Enzo Ferrari had the guts to build his own cars, but he also had the ability to make a bunch of Modenese work together without killing each other Dave Brownell n his 62 years, Luigi Chinetti, Jr. has probably spent more time around more Ferraris than anyone else alive. He has both witnessed and contributed to the growth of the Ferrari marque, while occupying a unique vantage point. His father, Luigi Sr., was the first importer and dealer for Ferrari in the United States, operating out of several locations in New York City over the years and eventually moving his dealership to Greenwich, Connecticut. I His father spent his life in automobiles, first with Alfa Romeo, and then running the Paris Talbot-Lago dealership where he sold ravishing Figoni-Falaschi "teardrop" coupes before World War II. Beginning work at Chinetti Motors in 1956 at just 15, Luigi, Jr. got to know the cars, their characteristics, the customers, and even Enzo Ferrari himself. Following in his father's footsteps, he became a Ferrari racing driver, competing under Chinetti's own North American Racing Team banner in such diverse places as Daytona, Sebring, Bonneville and Le Mans. Luigi Jr. also designed Ferraris of his own, bringing about the beautiful 275 NART Spyders, as well as running a restoration business specializing in cars carrying the Prancing Horse badge. Today he is semi-retired and enjoys an enviable collection of vintage and competition Ferraris while serving as an active exhibitor and judge at Concours d'Elegance events here and in Europe. In my conversation with him, he shared his thoughts and expertise on the many facets of the Ferraris of yesterday, today and tomorrow. SCM: Let's begin with your father, Luigi Chinetti, Sr. He started his career as a race car driver, and he won Le Mans in 1949 in a Ferrari. LCJ: Yes, in fact, he not only won Le Mans, but also the Spa-Francorchamps 24 hours, the 12 hours of Paris, and many endurance races. He had won before at Le Mans in 1932 and 1934 driving an Alfa. Then he helped put Ferrari on the map. The 1949 Le Mans was actually the first 24-hour race after the war. Dad had a 212 built by Vignale, from scratch. They were all handbuilt cars. These guys were geniuses. They just built stuff. It was second nature to them. It is amazing how small Ferrari was then. They just worked at it, little by little, out of this workshop in a little building. Ferrari had a little office and in the winter—boy, they were 34  Luigi Chinetti, Jr cold. They had their coats on all day long, with scarves and gloves, nearly freezing. That's what it was like after World War II, but what an advantage. You had the engineer there, you had the body man there, and it was extraordinary. The drivers drove them on the street—the Grand Prix cars would be tested on the road. Only in Italy! Who proposed Ferrari go to the States? Your father or Enzo? I think my father proposed it. I was there but I don't really remember—it's the old "chicken or the egg" dilemma. Whether one guy said, "You build them and I'll sell them," or if the other said, "You sell them, I'll build them," what happened was Ferrari built 12 cars and then my father sold them and that got them going. It was really very simple. Ferrari started it all on a shoestring. He had his little bunch of engineers and they had this foundry, and they made everything in-house. It was Enzo Ferrari who had the guts to do it, to build his own cars. He had the guts to drive them forward. Later, he also had the ability to make 350 Modenese work together without killing each other. What was Enzo Ferrari like? I once bought a Lusso at the factory, brand new, silver with blue interior. I was putting air in the tires and he came out of his office and he said, "What pressure are you putting in?" I told him—I think it was around 34 or 36 pounds in Dunlop XPs—and he said, "You don't go that fast, kid!" And then he, himself, lowered the tire pressure! Naturally, I put the pressure up again later. Years later, when I won my class at Le Mans, I said to him, "Now can I put the pressure up?" And he just laughed. Mr. Ferrari was geat. Some people say he was an awful guy, but the people that got along with him did through mutual respect. John Surtees once said, "You might disagree with him, but you have to respect what he did." And when he gave you a race car, he tried to make it as good as he could. One Easter Sunday in the 1960s, I was driving by the factory and Ferrari was walking out and he said, "Come on in." He showed me the whole racing department—he must have spent an hour. He was wonderful. And also a very good and very fast driver. Today you couldn't get near the shop. No way. But I admire what Ferrari is doing today. They're using extraordinary technology and they have a big advantage. They've got the aero tunnel, they've got the foundry, and if somebody on the left wants something done on the right, the technician is just a half a mile away. McLaren has to go to Mercedes for the engine, Williams to BMW. But Ferrari—it's all right there. It's really the same advantage they've always had. They've got their test track right there. Of course, it was more interesting in the old days when they tested the cars in the mountains... So that was the key to Ferrari's racing success? Having everything under one roof? That and reliability. Look at all the Ferrari engines in race cars. You don't hear about having to replace them. Ever. I mean, I threw a rod in the 290 MM because it was really tired. But we fixed it. My M threw a rod at Bonneville, too, because it was really tired by the time we went out there. But a Daytona engine blow up? I don't think they ever did. People used to say the electrics in the cars were unreliable, but the cars were reliable if you didn't touch them. And they won so many endurance races as a result. Yeah, look at all the Le Mans Ferrari won. I mean, they won a hell of a lot there. them. Look how much Ford spent trying to beat Oh, they spent a fortune on it. That was a great era. When did the North American Racing Team begin? And where did the name come from? The name came from my dad driving on a narrow road and being blocked by a big moving van. He was stuck behind this North American Van Lines truck for miles, but he thought it would make a great name for a racing team based in America. So North American Racing Sports Car Market

Ferrari in America Life with Ferrari Team—NART—was created in 1958. Who were some of the drivers who raced for NART? Some great ones, about 120 drivers in all: The Rodriguez brothers, Dan Gurney, Phil Hill, Richie Ginther, John Surtees, Graham We paid Graham Hill eleven hundred bucks, plus expenses, for a race. As recently as the 1970s when we went to Monaco. When Brian Redman drove the 712 [at Watkins Glen in 1974], do you know how he got the ride? I went to see him and we had [Richard] Fritz go see David Hobbs, and whoever would do it for less got to drive! If one wanted eleven Pininfarina-designed Ferrari three-seater owned by Chinetti, at Bagatelle, Paris.

The eleven-hundred driver got it, and for that race it was Brian. When he broke a rear hub at 190 miles an hour down the straightaway, he said, "That was some ride." Totally unflappable! You drove for NART, too. When I went racing in '69 or '70 in my little 3-liter Ferrari, you were looking at 3-liter Porsches, 5-liter Porsches, 5-liter Ferraris. I was just a kid trying to figure out whether I was any good on the racetrack and everybody in those cars was a good driver: [Pedro] Rodriguez, [Jo] Siffert, [Jo] Bonnier, [Jean-Pierre] Jarier, [Jacky] Ickx, Sam Posey, George Follmer, Jackie Oliver. The grid in front of me looked like something out of Road & Track So if you passed anybody, you knew you'd passed somebody. It was a war then, with everybody driving flat-out. Like the time [Mario] Andretti was driving for the factory at Sebring, chasing the Porsche 908 of Peter Revson's, the last stint. Andretti was half out of the car in the pits for a driver change when [Mauro] Forghieri, the Ferrari team manager, shoved him back in the car and told him to get back out there. I don't even think he put on his seat belts, and went charging out in the night and caught Revson in the last 15 minutes. Where do you think the vintage Ferrari market is going? Well, there are fewer and fewer cars coming on the market. The big collectors will probably keep their cars and some have already willed them to foundations, so the cars are never going to come back on the market. The big collectors don't need to sell their cars and I don't think they're going to. Do major art collectors sell their paintings? Probably not. So unfortunately the population of Ferraris—if that's what you want to call it—is diminishing. That, in itself, will probably make some prices rise. People will start to think of Ferraris more as icons, mechanical art, or whatever you want to call it. What about some of the great Ferrari col- lectors.- Bob Lee, Tony Wang, Peter Sachs, Pierre Bardinon, Bruce McCaw? They don't just own Ferraris. They own sculptures, they have art, they have great taste, Sports Car Market

Ferrari in America Life with Ferrari and they love to acquire good things. I like to draw. I like to build stuff. I'd rather build than collect. I mean, would I like to keep the 250 LM and drive it? Yeah. Are they beautiful? Yeah. Would I like to have a Bugatti in the garage? Yeah. A Bugatti Atlantic coupe—you'd never get tired of looking at it. There's a lot of pride in ownership. You look at the cars and think, "Wow, somebody special made that car." But you do have a collection of vintage Ferraris. There's a 512M Le Mans, a 275 GTB alloy coupe, a 400 Superamerica, a 365 GTC4, a 312PB, a 196P, the Bardahl Special Indy car, the one-off Pininfarina three-seater with steering in the center, an interim Berlinetta that was seventh at Le Mans, a 275P Le Mans-winner, and a 250 LM. I'd like to put the Bardahl Special on my wall. In my house in Greenwich I had a little 1500 Formula One car in my dining room. I liked looking at it. What cars should we be looking for now? Chinetti's 275P under restoration in Italy. I like the GTC/4 because I can drive them, but hardly anybody else likes them. Maybe that's the kind of car collectors should look for, ones that are out of favor. And I would always advise an enthusiast to snap up any underpriced Dinos and Daytonas that they came across. The problem is we all thought this supply of cars would continue. We thought we'd always have these cars, and that they weren't worth a lot of money. I sold my last GTO for $12,000—now, they're worth $10 million. We thought the dream would continue—that we could drive these cars on the street and have a ball. With the older cars, that's all over now. When the old cars were new, they weren't thought of as collectibles. Bob Grossman and Charlie Hayes raced SWBs all year in the 1963 championship. Grossman would drive the car from Nyack, New York, to Thompson, Connecticut, change the plugs, race it, and drive it home. While the rest were putting their cars on trailers! Ferraris have attracted an interesting group of aficionados over the years. Oh, yes. The magazines have always shown elegant people with their Ferraris, like [Roberto] Rossellini. I remember when the opera singer Franco Corelli did an album cover with a Pininfarina convertible. I drove the car over to Sutton Place, which isn't an ugly location to begin with. This man shows up and he looks like an opera singer—tall, good looking, perfect. The Italians, when they dress up, they don't mess around. I still have the album. For these people, Ferraris were only part of the deal. And they weren't this thing that they have become today. All these people in their red hats—I don't want to run around in a red Ferrari hat! * Best Drivers! Best Service! Best Customers!

Ferrari in America Life with Ferrari Who were some of your customers, back when Chinetti Motors was operating so well? The first U.S. clients were the Collier brothers, then [Jim] Kimberly, George Rand, [Briggs] Cunningham. It took a little courage, but people still wanted to race right after the war. We had the neatest customers-and customers from hell, as well. But the good ones, not just ones with money, were interesting people: Miles Davis, Errol Gamer, Lee J. Cobb, Nelson Rockefeller. You know, objectively speaking, Chinetti Motors was actually a company that had no reason for existing. Selling Ferraris in America to people that didn't know how to drive them and with our speed limit? That's like selling ice in Alaska. Those cars weren't necessary, but people wanted them anyway. I've always wondered-when you were Chinetti's 275 LM (#5 1 49) was the first and is recognizable by its unique roofline. Shown here at Goodwood with Jackie Oliver at the wheel. selling Ferraris in New York, how could you adequately demonstrate them in the middle of Manhattan? We'd take clients up the West Side Highway and through some of the roads in Central Park. I got stopped for speeding a lot-my license was hanging in the balance for a while. It's been quite a journey, these 50-plus years. All these people and the cars-it was a romance. Dad loved the cars. He loved the cars and over here he's never been understood particularly well-except by the race drivers. In Europe, they loved him. The only people we ever got along with were the designers, race drivers, some nice customers, but the general population of the car people... People would ask, "Why would I want to buy a Ferrari?" My answer was always, "I don't know. Why do you? If you don't know, how can I help you?" Luigi, thank you for sharing some of your Ferrari experiences with Sports Car Market.

Ferrari in America Affordable Classic 1986-1989 Ferrari 328 GTB/GTS A used 328 can be affordable because the depreciation over a year or two may be small to non-existent for a moderate amount of driving by John Apen very man should have one before he dies." When I sold used Ferraris, this is what I used to say to close the deal. "You owe it to yourself to buy it, drive it and decide if it fits your lifestyle." Some people loved the experience so much they ended up with a Ferrari collection, while others decided it wasn't their cup of tea. No matter the ending, few regretted the journey. A REAL FERRARI AND A BETTER 308 Today, the 328 is one of the finest Ferraris you can buy for under $50,000. An evolution of the mid-'70s 308, most experts consider it to be the best driving, best built and most reliable of the line. Offered in both berlinetta coupe (GTB) and targa-top spyder (GTS) models, it's a great testimony to what can be achieved with 10 years of development. Ferrari's 3-liter V8 grew a bit for the 328, to 3185 cc thanks to an increase in bore and stroke. Fitted with different cams, an enhanced ignition system and better fuel injection, horsepower increased by about 10 percent, to 260 at 7,000 rpm. This gives the 328, at about 3,150 pounds, a power-to-weight ratio roughly equal to that of the Honda S2000. The 328 employs Ferrari's typical flat-plane crank design, its inherent exhaust scavenging abilities making the torque curve flat and broad, with a maximum of 214 lb-fl achieved at 5,500 rpm. Adding to the everyday driving enjoyment is the unique exhaust sound created by the racing crank, a delight to all enthusiasts. The transversely mounted mid-engine design offers great weight distribution and contributes to outstanding handling. Ferrari ditched the metric wheels from the 308, fitting larger 16-inch rubber at each corner, which also helped. Performance is up to the supercar standards of its day, with 0-60 mph times under six seconds. AFFORDABLE, REALLY Owning a 328 should not be an exercise in financial self-immolation. In fact, the round trip can easily cost less than you'll lose by driving a nice, new mid-priced car off a dealer's lot. As an SCMer you have probably already given much thought to the monster of depreciation. There's a good reason why every dealer in the world has banned that word from their premises, as it makes up the bulk of the total ownership cost of most cars. Purchase price, maintenance and operating expenses make up the rest of what the military would call the 40  "life-cycle cost." A used Ferrari can be affordable because the depreciation over a year or two is likely to be small to non-existent for a moderate amount of driving. To wit, the asking prices for both the GTB and GTS 328s have been steady for the past year, as measured by the Ferrari Market Letter. Some will grouse that the 328's production numbers don't bode well for long-term appreciation. True, Maranello did build over 7,400 328s—huge by Ferrari standards—but these numbers are still a drop in the bucket compared with many other collectible cars. And regardless, what we're looking to do here is break even on our driving pleasure, a not inconceivable goal in a 328. Just don't bet your first-born's college tuition on it. MANAGING MAINTENANCE Everyone knows that Italian exotics can break the bank, but the 328 offers an upside on maintenance costs. To paraphrase Ferrari expert Dick Fritz: They have 100 improvements, half for the driver and half for the mechanic. A reliable, modern singlebox electronic ignition system, combined with a real closed-loop Bosch electronic fuel-injection system without troublesome air pumps goes a long way towards improving reliability and tuning. Among other mechanic-friendly changes are cam seals carried in separate holders, and belt covers with clearance to pull the "big nose" water pump without breaking down the A/C system to get the belt cover off. The pump also was redesigned with more robust bearings than earlier versions. Within the engine, the valves are no longer hollow-stemmed, which had led to some exhaust valve breakage on high-mileage 308s. The gearboxes have larger bearings, lubricated by an internal oil pump, leading to less notchy shifting and decreased susceptibility to wear compared to the earlier splash-lubricated transmission. Many other small details were engineered into the 328, like stainless exhaust manifold nuts with a 12-mm hex instead of 13 mm, which improved accessibility and prevented nuts from rusting onto the studs. TURN YOUR OWN WRENCH As always, the key to a trouble-free car is to buy one with all the required service done. The rule is simple: "It's cheaper to purchase shop time from the previous owner than the shop." Even with all the upgrades to the 328, it is still an approximately 20-hour procedure to get to the rubber timing belts, water pump seal and belt tensioners. So pay a grand or two more for a car that has had major service done recently, by a competent shop and documented by a detailed repair order.

Yes, contrary to popular belief, it is possible to work on some Ferraris yourself. If you're less adept with a wrench, a good import shop should be able to handle many of your needs for less than a dealer might charge. Indeed, 328s are equipped with far less high-tech and costly electronics than 348s or TRs, so you can leave the laptop in the den where it belongs. The final consideration in the 328's affordability equation is operating cost. "If you have to ask, you can't afford it," is a common adage in discussing the fuel economy of exotics, a consideration that is rarely as important as the quality of the fitted luggage or adaptability of front/rear radar detectors. But being pragmatic in this column, and with gasoline still over $2 per gallon, we will ask anyway. The answer is not as bad as you might imagine, as you can actually get 20-25 mpg on the open road in a 328, and around town you're still going to do a lot better than most SUVs. Of course, you're not going to buy that first Ferrari because it's a gas-sipper. You're going to buy it because every enthusiast should own one, at least once.• Sports Car Market

Ferrari in America Collecting Thoughts Ferrari Ownership 101: Care And Feeding Of Your Ferrari V12 The car should run fine on 94-octane pump gas, but due to my obsessive/ compulsive disorder, I generally use 100-octane, low-lead, aviation grade by Alexander Leventhal E specially with Ferraris, a little extra thought can go a long ways in helping you enjoy your car. For instance, scraping the muffler in your '65 Mustang may mean a $200 visit to Midas, while doing the same in your 365 might mean raising the limit on your home equity loan. And always remember a primary rule of collector car ownership: The money you don't have to spend on your car is money you can spend on something else that is fin, too. Like, in the case of avoiding an engine rebuild, a wonderful $25,000 vacation in the South Seas. To help you along your way, here's a set of instructions I prepared for a fellow who bought my Ferrari 365 GT 2+2; it really applies to all SOHC V12s. I realize that SCM readers are a savvy bunch, and probably know most or all of this stuff already. Yet no matter how much we think we know about our cars, it's always a good idea to review some of the basics. Frankly, the way we get spoiled by our everyday modem machinery, it's easy to forget how to properly baby a vintage collectible. 1. COLD START • If your battery has been disconnected for storage, make sure the key is not in the ignition before you hook it up. Dinoplex-equipped cars in particular are sensitive to shock, and connecting the battery with the key on can fry them. The easiest way to prevent this is to just make sure the keys are in your pocket when you connect the battery. • After connecting the battery, turn the key to the on position. • Count to ten while the fuel pump builds pressure to the carburetors. • Pump the gas five times. • Turn the key to the start position until the engine fires. • Do not rev the engine until the oil pressure comes up. • If you cannot get the car started, do not attempt to jump-start it, as this will surely fry the ignition. 42  Low revs until the oil pressure is up. 2. WARM START • Turn the key to the on position. • Count to ten. • Do not pump the gas at all. • Turn the key to the start position. • If the engine does not fire in one to two seconds, crack the throttle open gradually until it does. 3. DRIVING OFF WHEN COLD • When the engine has been started cold, do not drive off until the oil pressure is finished building. • Drive off slowly, and do not exceed 2,500 rpm or 30 mph until the water temp gauge moves off the peg. (You may need to tap the gauge.) • It is probably a good idea to skip second gear at this point, and go directly from first to third, especially if any resistance is encountered when shifting. • Once the water temperature needle begins to move, it's okay to increase the revs, but not to more than 3,000. Keep it under 60 mph until the oil temperature moves up. (Again, you may need to tap it. Italian gauges are notorious for their lazy needles.) • Once the oil has warmed up, gradually increase revs and speed in proportion to the movement of the oil temp needle, but slowly and easily, so that when the car reaches operating temperature you are now (and only now) using all of the rev range and speed potential. • Once warm, do not hesitate to use wide open throttle and all of the rev range to redline, but do not snap or "slam" the throttle open, and never slip or drop the clutch. 4. DRIVING IN TRAFFIC OR HOT WEATHER • If properly tuned, the car will not overheat in traffic or hot weather. (Though you may.) • That said, the electric fans do draw 80 amps at idle, so if you're stuck in traffic for a prolonged period (say, stuck on 1-405 in L.A.) the battery could become drained. To prevent this, either hold the revs just off idle (approximately 1,500 rpm) so that the ammeter does not indicate a draw, or make sure that once the fans switch off (ammeter goes positive) that you run the engine sufficiently to recharge the battery. • For personal comfort, be sure to open the front vent windows and rear window, as well as side windows to allow flow-through ventilation. • Also, open the fresh air vent with the lever at the base of the windshield in the center. • Do not wear socks at any time of year... your feet will get hot! (So that explains at least one part of Ferrari-owner fashion, bare feet in penny loafers. Wonder if gold chains keep spark plugs from fouling.—ED.) Sports Car Market

Ferrari in America Collecting Thoughts 5. BONNET (HOOD) AND BOOT (TRUNK) OPERATION • To open the bonnet, pull the metal lever under the dash on the driver's left kick panel and prop the lid open with the spring-loaded rod. • Do not leave the hood open and unattended on a windy day, as it will come crashing down as the wind blows it forward, releasing the prop rod. • Do not allow the prop rod to spring back on its own, as this will tear the hood pad over time. Instead, guide it back. • To close the bonnet, set it down (do not slam it) and then "click" each rear corner latch individually. • To open the boot, pull the innermost lever in the rear of the driver's door jamb. (The outer lever is the fuel door.) • To close the boot, set the lid down (again, do not slam it) and then latch it shut by pushing on the chrome Ferrari script on the top of the deck lid. Remember, the boot lid is aluminum, so pressing elsewhere can dent it. 6. CARE AND FEEDING • The car should run fine on 94-octane pump gas. Due to my obsessive/compulsive disorder, I generally use 100-octane, low-lead, aviation grade fuel. • Condition the leather overnight every three months with Leatherique. Use Rejuvenator Oil on the leather, but clean with Pristine Clean the next day. • When in winter storage leave the Rejuvenator Oil on for the season. This is very important to preserve the original leather. • Wash the car by hand only. No car washes! Use Griot's Car Wash or Meguiar's Gold Class or equivalent. • Wax the car by hand only, at least twice a year. Use Griot's Best Of Show wax or the Meguiar's equivalent for best results. • Use only 100-percent cotton towels and rags with no labels or poly stitching. • Cover during the winter for the best protection, but never cover the car if it has not been freshly washed and thoroughly dried. Throwing a cover on a car that has road grit on it will simply scratch your paint. • Heated storage (in cold climates) during the winter seems to go a long way towards preventing problems in the spring. 7. DETAILS, DETAILS • Be very careful of the exhaust system on whoop-de-doos at speed and speed bumps or steep inclines. The exhaust hangs low, particularly in the center, and NOS parts run $6k, with repros (in stainless) at $3k. • While driving, always monitor the gauges, and pull over or stop the motor at the first abnormal reading. (This is your best hope against incurring a rebuild you can't afford.) • Watch it with the car's power, especially if driving in the wet. The engine "comes on the cam" very hard at about 4,500 rpm, almost like a turbocharged car. This can certainly break the back end free in lower gears or wet weather. (This is less of a problem in 3-liter cars.) • The best cornering technique with this fairly large, powerful car, is "slow in, fast out." I never trail brake this car. Instead, do all your braking in a straight line, turn in and let the car set, then, as you're approaching the apex, roll on the power, reaching wide-open throttle as you exit, and allowing the power to drift the car to the track out point. • Never rush the gearbox on up or down shifts. It is not a drag racer. • Likewise, take your time shifting and the car will live longer. (I have the $10k tramiy rebuild invoice to prove what happens if you play boy racer too often.) • Always match revs on downshifts before releasing the clutch, but no need to doubleclutch (except, perhaps, for fun) unless your (most-often second gear) synchros are worn. • Be careful not to break off the turn signal stalk when making three-point turns. It is very close to the wheel—and it is an $800 part. While this list seems long, nearly every one of the items on it is common sense. And for V12s, common sense equates to lowered maintenance costs and a happier ownership experience.* GRIKS 4111110P lR E RR AR 4Em ASERATIW OF SEATTLE A/ Barton/If Milano boy& sod 1!/2Eogiorerioo illtS,.

Ferrari in America SCM Picks Ferraris at the Rock ith the demise of the Louis Vuitton Classic, midtown Manhattan hasn't been the same. No Formula One racers thundering down Fifth Avenue. No milliondollar parties with Aretha Franklin performing. And what's worse for SCMers—no collector car auctions. For four days in May, Christie's and Ferrari of North America tried to partially remedy this drought. They brought a celebration of the 50th anniversary of the arrival of the marque in the U.S. to New York City, with a display of important Ferraris on the plaza in front of Christie's showroom at Rockefeller Plaza. W The cars ranged from the first customer car sold by Ferrari, a 1947 166SC roadster that will be sold by Christie's at its annual Monterey sale, to the latest 612 2+2 Scaglietti coupe. Also present were examples of Ferrari road and race cars, including a 1951 212 Export coupe, a '57 250 GT Tour de France, a '62 GTO, a '62 Superamerica, a 246 Dino coupe and spyder, an F50 and several others. New Maseratis were also on display, including the just-debuted MCI2 race car. Let's hope this isn't a one-time expo. Despite conventional wisdom, and no matter what The New York Times would have you believe, living in Manhattan and being a collector car aficionado are not mutually exclusive—Donald Osborne* Maserati Gran Sport and Maserati MC12.  1947 Ferrari 166 SC— The first customerdelivered Ferrari. 1962 250 GTO (front) owned by subscriber Bernard Carl and 1957 Ferrari TdF in front of the Today Show studio. 46  Sports Car Market

Ferrari in America At the Movies Ferraris and Films, Sometimes a Great Notion Whether window dressing or central casting, Ferraris have appeared in more than 65 films. Some of the movies are great, sometimes you'll be watching just for the car Ferraris have been movie magnets for 50 years, instant symbols of passion and "La Dolce Vita." They've captured the thrill of competitive racing in classics like Grand Prix, been used as the ultimate street racer in chase movies like The Cannonball Run, and served important roles in thrillers like GoldenEye.

BEATEN BY A COUNTRY MILLE The Racers (1955) *lir* The cheesy storyline about ambitious racer Kirk Douglas plays second fiddle to real action from the 1954 Mille Miglia.

Ferrari in America Profile 1966 275 GTB/C Above 4,000 rpm you get the feeling that the GT13/C may really go after all, and at 5,000, the car tries to throw you out the back window by Thor Thorson DETAILS Year produced: 1966 Number produced: 12 Original list price: approx. $25,000 SCM Valuation: $1.25-51.4 million Cost per hour to race: $1,500 Distributor cap: good repop, $150 each (two required) ; original Bakelite, $800 each. Chassis #: stamped in left front crossmember Engine #: stomped on boss at right rear of block Club: Ferrari Club of America, P.O. Box 720597, Atlanta, GA 30358 Web site: www.ferrariclubofamerica.org Alternatives: Ford GT40, Ferrari 250 IA, Jaguar E-type lightweight SCM Investment Grade: A COMPS Chassis number: 09027 Engine number: 0014 models. T his immensely desirable and highly usable Ferrari 275 GTB/C is the third of only 12 such Berlinetta Competizione models produced by the world-famous Maranello factory, and is absolutely not to be confused with the normal, standard production GTB Here was a purebred endurance-racing competition car whose fundamental bodyshape and basic technical specification were almost the only characteristics it shared in common with the production model it represented on the great race circuits of the world. The car on offer here was signed off as complete on June 14, 1966, and the following day saw chassis 09027's sale formalized, its first owner being Ferrari's celebrated Belgian concessionaire Jacques Swaters, for use by his Ecurie Francorchamps team at Le Mans. The car was co-driven by the highly experienced northern French pairing of Pierre Noblet and Claude Dubois, finishing 10th overall that year. The Ferrari 275 GTB was, of course, the first production model from Maranello to combine their much-loved front-mounted V12, not only with a rear-mounted transaxle-type gearbox but also with all-independent suspension. The GTB/C featured a stiffer variation of the standard steel chassis frame, clothed in thin-gauge lightweight aluminum coachwork, with thinner windows, and an oil filler under a flap in the right front wing to supply the now dry-sump 275 LM-like VI2 engine. This particular example's Le Mans 24-hour race provenance makes it a very special Berlinetta Competizione indeed. Offered here in immaculate condition complete with registration documents, history file and invoices for work carried out, here is a beautiful and rare front-engined Ferrari to make all enthusiasts weak in the knees. The SCM analysis: This car sold for $1,080,061, including buyer 's premium, at Bonhams' Monaco auction, held on May 15, 2004. 54  The GTB/C is the ultimate 275 GTB, a true purpose-built race car that can ? really be compared to its production siblings. In many ways it can claim to be the rightful successor to Ferrari's 250 GTO. Indeed, the 275 GTB/C is faster and more technically advanced than the GTO. It is also rarer with only 12 produced versus 37 GTOs. Why then is a 275 GTB/C worth just a fraction of the GTO 's $7.5-$9 million value? Blame the FIA. In the early 1960s, the rules for homologation of production GT race cars clearly specified a minimum production of 100 cars. Ferrari got the GTO approved by promising to build 100, then very pub- 1966 Ferrari 275 GTB/C Lot #37, S/N 9063 Condition: 1 Sold at S1,100,000 RM; Amelia Island, FL; 3/10/2001 SCM ID# 27975 1965 Ferrari 275 GTB/C Speciale Lot #184, S/N 743761 Condition: 2+ Sold at $759,000 RM; Monterey, CA; 8/16/2002 SCM ID# 28852 licly spanked the FIA by fielding a wildly successful purebred racing car, with no intention of meeting the production requirements. And so, having been thoroughly burned, the FIA wasn't very inclined to be agreeable when it came time to produce a successor It simply refused to homologate the 250 LM (the intended successor) as a production GT car Ferrari was thus forced to produce a competition version of the 275 GTB in order to fight the production GT battles, and it really needed to look and feel enough like the street version to get it past the authorities. Typically for Ferrari, it took three attempts before they pulled it off Act 1: Ferrari built four pure racing cars, often referred to as the "GTO 65."

Ferrari in America Profile 250 LM engines and bodywork that sorta looked like a 275 GTB. But the FIA said, "Hope," and Ferrari threatened to abandon GT Championship racing. Close curtain. Act 2: Ferrari produced a series of 10 more-or-less production short-nose GTBs, but modified for competition use. They had aluminum bodywork, outside filler caps, and six carbs, but little more, and Ferrari decided they weren't fast enough for factory competition. Close curtain. Act 3: Finally, Ferrari built the 12-car run of the 275 GTB/ C. (The others were not given this moniker.) These were the last competition GT cars designed and built from the ground up by Forghieri and the racing department at Maranello. (Later Daytonas were production cars modified in Modena.) The FIA approved. Applause. Though they look a lot like a standard long-nose GTB (they're not identical) these are serious racing cars. The frame architecture is the same as production 275s but it's a special frame. The engine is a three-carburetor version of the 250 LM engine (the three carbs, rather than the expected six, were due to a clerical error in the F1A filing), with a 22-quart dry sump, turning out 280 hp at 7,500 rpm. Ferrari used electron castings (magnesium alloy) all over the dle the grip of the new M Section Dzinlops and often broke. Ironically, the two GTB/Cs sold for street use were given stronger alloy wheels. The interior of the car was complete and looks like that of the GTB/4 (though it much lighter) and the engine is docile enough to idle, so it easy to forget that this is a serious piece of kit. A GTB/C will easily walk away from street Daytonas or Boxers once you get it up on the cams. Oh, yeah, the cams. Dyke Ridgley wrote a piece in Cavallino where he described the performance thusly: "What are these cars like to drive? Up to 2,500 rpm it is buck, buck, cough, cough, spit, spit. Between 2,500 and 4,000 the engine is smooth but weak-kneed. Above 4,000 you get the feeling that the car may really go after all, and at 5,000, the GTB/C tries to throw you out the back window!" 10th overall for the Noblet/Dubois Ferrari 275 GTB/C at the 1966 24-Hours of Le Mans. place to save weight, including the transaxle case. The result is a car that weighs 500 pounds less than a steel-bodied 4-cam. The bodywork is nothing more than painted aluminum foil (half the thickness of production GTB aluminum bodywork) and dents if you look at it wrong. The GTB/C is also the last competition Ferrari to run wire wheels, specially built Borranis, and for good reason, as the wheels couldn't han- The problem is that your buddies down at the golf club are still going to think you've got a GTB, and one with lumpy bodywork to boot. That seems to be what keeps these at the lowest market price of any pure-racer Ferrari of the '60s. Of course, to look at it another way, it 's a great value. And while 275 GTB/Cs have been stuck in the million to million- and-a-half range for years, 1 have to think that the chances of the world waking up and giving these cars a much higher value is far more likely than their values going down. Which is to say, this purchase was a very safe investment in a very special car (Historical and descriptive information courtesy of the auction company)• September 2004  55

Ferrari in America Sheehan Speaks Top 10 Ferrari 12-Cylinders For The First-Time Buyer Testarossas are cheap and easy to find at nearly any auction and everyone will recognize you're driving a Ferrari. Just watch out for Fiero drivers stealing your badges for their fiberglass clones here never seems to be any shortage of would-be, first-time Ferrari buyers. And while I welcome their enthusiasm and interest, I'm amazed at how many of these guys (and yes, they are all men) are "ready to buy" but haven't done any homework. Most often, what I get is that they have gone so far as to decide that they want a "real" 12-cylinder Ferrari, as opposed to a V8-powered one. And then they ask me which one is best for them. T But they don't seem to understand that saying they don't want a 308 or a 360, and instead are looking for a 365 or a 550, is just the tip of the iceberg. There are 50 years of V12 Ferrari models, each with many different variations over their production runs. The cars sell in a price range spanning $20,000 to $10 million, meaning there's a V12 Ferrari for almost any budget. But if you haven't analyzed the basics, things like what are you really prepared to spend, your commitment to getting a pre- THE LIST What follows are my Top 10 choices for a first-time V12 Ferrari purchase listed in chronological order. I've kept the price tag under $200,000, meaning the buyer is going to be purchasing a productionbased car (rather than one that was coach-built). 1.1959 - 1962 250 Pininfarina coupe SCM Price Guide: $55,000—$90,000 SCM Investment Grade: B Pros: Cheap. Eligible for many vintage touring events. With only 353 built and fewer and fewer surviving on a monthly basis, there is an upside for future collectibility. The right one can be one of the true bargains in the Ferrari world. Also, trending up strongly in value the past year. Cons: The poster child for deferred maintenance, as values often don't support high restoration costs. 2. 1960 - 1963 250 GTE 2+2 SCM Price Guide: $35,000—$50,000 SCM Investment Grade: C Pros: The family Ferrari for those who must have an early Ferrari and need a back seat. Best looking of all the 2+2s. No stupid power 56  1959 Ferrari 250 GT PF coupe purchase inspection, the likely maintenance and service costs, and your intended use, there's no way to decide which V12 Ferrari is for you. windows or a/c to fail and repair, over and over again. Cons: No valve stem seals means permanent WWII destroyer-escort style smoke screen when going down the road. Usually runner-up in the poster child for deferred maintenance competition. If you buy a cheap one that "just needs a little work," be prepared to spend a lot of time a) parked by the side of the road waiting for a tow truck, or b) waiting in the mechanic's lounge for Visa to approve your latest repair bill. 3. 1966 - 1968 330 GTC/1968 1970 330 GTC - SCM Price Guide: $85,000—$145,000/$110,000—$145,000 SCM Investment Grade: B Pros: One of few older user-friendly Ferraris in this price range with real brakes, an independent suspension, lots of power and a five-speed transaxle. Some actual appreciation potential. My "best buy." Cons: Air conditioning is a cruel joke. Styling too restrained for those who need gold chains on each wrist as well as around the neck. 4.1968-1971 365 GT 2+2 SCM Price Guide: $50,000—$65,000 SCM Investment Grade: C Pros: A 2+2 Ferrari that is actually semi-user friendly. Like the 330 GTC, it has real brakes, an independent suspension, lots of power, a fivespeed trans that shifts well and power steering that works. Even looks like a Ferrari, though a big one. Cons: Beware both the dreaded deferred maintenance and worthless a/c. Rube Goldberg-esque self-leveling rear suspension should be ripped Sports Car Market

out and replaced God-fearing Konis. U.S.-spec models had two alternators (a plot by alternator shops that needed work?); go for a Euro-spec one. 5. 1968 1973 365 GTB/4 Daytona SCM Price Guide: $125,000 $145,000 - — looks in the classic front-engine Ferrari. Some appreciation potential. Cons: Need World Wrestling Federation forearms to drive at low speed and park. Latches on wind wings like to fall off in your hands. Unborn mouse fur on dash fades the instant sun touches it. 6. 1971-1972 365 GTC/4 SCM Price Guide: $55,000 SCM Investment Grade: B Pros: 350 horsepower and an exhaust shriek to die for. Phallic good — $75,000 SCM Investment Grade: C Pros: Four-cam engine with acres of torque, power steering that works, functional brakes and the best exhaust sound of any street Ferrari ever built, period. A user-friendly Ferrari that your wife could drive. Cons: Who said you want your wife to drive the car, anyway? She might never let you back behind the wheel! Have we mentioned deferred maintenance? Extra bonus for your mechanic: Sidedraft carbs mean carbs have to come off for valve adjustment. 7. 1976 - 1981 512 BB Boxer/1982 1984 512 BBi Boxer - SCM Price Guide: $55,000—$72,500/$60,000—$80,000 SCM Investment Grade: B Pros: True supercar performance in a very user-friendly package that will beat your neighbor's Daytona in every department except looks. Cons: Radiator hoses that pass through cockpit guarantee toasty interior. Handling at the limit can be "exciting." That '70s design has led prices to fall from $250,000 in 1990 to $55,000—$80,000 today, with no real prospect of them going up. 8. 1985-1991 Testarossa SCM Price Guide: $40,000 - 70,000 SCM Investment Grade: C Pros: Cheap, easy to find at nearly any auction, user-friendly, lots of performance. Everyone will recognize you're driving a Ferrari. Cons: Clutch and major service can easily cost half the purchase price of the car. Styling dated, unless Miami Vice is your favorite show. Watch out for Fiero drivers stealing your badges to put on their fiberglass clones. 9.1992-2003 456 CT SCM Price Guide: $75,000 — $95,000 SCM Investment Grade: C Pros: Modern supercar performance with a 5.5-liter V12. Very userfriendly cockpit, luxurious seating, great creature comforts, kid-friendly rear seats. Close to fully depreciated. Cons: Budget at least $5,000 per year in maintenance. A pre-purchase compression and leakdown test is mandatory. Repairing the automatic twiny is a $75,000, replace-as-a-unit-only deal. 10. 1996-2003 550 Maranello SCM Price Guide: $115,000—$165,000 SCM Investment Grade: B Pros: A modern Daytona, with the same long-hood good looks. Runs the quarter-mile in 12.6 seconds and has a top speed of 199 mph. Very user-friendly supercar. Early ones have already gone through most of initial depreciation. Cons: Later 575 model makes this one yesterday's news; no highfives at the country club for showing up in one. Typically high maintenance costs if everything goes your way, which it never will. Those are my ten. The right one for you will hinge on whether you want a modern car to use somewhat regularly, or if you're looking for something to use on the New England 1000 and other rallies a few times a year. Bottom line is that if you buy a good car, and treat it properly, it will be relatively reliable although it will never be cheap to run. On the other hand, nothing else sounds and drives like a Ferrari, and if you've never owned a Ferrari, having any good-running V12 will change your view of driving, forever.• September 2004 SWISSOL HIGH PERFORMANCE CAR CARE HAND MADE IN SWITZERLAND WWW.SWISSOL.COM s v,NYNAKERS SINCE.

Offered now for the first time ever on the open market, Ferrari Fit 2000 chassis 205 is a car of immense potential as a long term addition to any world class collection. No single car has probably contributed more to the Cavallino Rampante legend in recent decades. Few cars can claim to have won no less than four Grand Prix races, driven by arguably the greatest racing driver of all time. Even fewer can claim to have secured an F! World Championship title, especially such a landmark one. Add to these factors the factory support now available for private owners wishing to use modern day Fl Ferraris on the track, and the user-friendly nature of the F1/2000 model and the appeal is obvious. Racing cars don't get much more historic than this, perhaps the most important single car to have been sold by Ferrari in the past 20 years. The SCM analysis: This car sold for $1,689,992, including buyer's premium, at the Bonhams Monaco auction held on May 15, 2004. Let's be realistic: This car has ceased to be a race car Yes, its owner may go out and drive very, very fast, scaring the bejeebies out of himself and his loved ones. He may even drive it with other cars on the track, but he will never; ever race it. He is not worthy—even the back markers who drive Formula I cars for real are supermen who have earned the right to their rides through tremendous talent and effort. hen Jody Scheckter won the Formula 1 drivers' championship in 1979, few enthusiasts, and even fewer among the management at Fiat and Ferrari itself, could have suspected that it would be 21 long years before another driver would attain that elusive crown behind the wheel of a Formula 1 Ferrari. That driver was the now-legendary, six-times World Champion, Michael Schumacher. This is the car, chassis 205, in which he ultimately clinched that historic breakthrough. W 58  So don't think of this as a race car, per se; look at it instead as a fullfledged piece of sporting memorabilia, a record-breaking baseball, complete with bat, muscle, bone, and sinew (though emphatically not the vision, reaction time or experience) that made it a piece of history. This car is something you choose to own because you desire it and can afford it, not because you expect to drive it much. Don't get me wrong—it's a fully operational race car Though you won't find one on the showroom floor at your local Ferrari store, the factory can and does sell their old Fl cars, for about a million dollars each. They take out the telemetry, upload some "vanilla" software into the engine management system, drop the redline to make the engine live a bit longer and go to a generic suspension setup—then send them out the door Assuming Ferrari likes you well enough to sell you one of these cars in the first place, factory support is available through its Corsa Cliente service, which is based right across the street from the Fl facility. They're happy to send a crew of qualified mechanics to wherever you'd like, and will make a fuss over you and the car to make sure that everything works right. This is not cheap, but it is available, though from a logistics standpoint it works far better to run the car in Europe than elsewhere in the world. The first thing you've got to do if you want to drive the car is to get in it. Michael Schumacher is not a big man (5 foot, 7 inches, and all of 150 pounds) and they built the car to fit him like a thong. Ifyou 're a standardsized American male with a six-pack gut rather than abs, forget about it.

Ferrari in America Race Profile I know two people who own late-'90s Fl cars and they tell me that once you wedge yourself behind the wheel, these machines drive extremely well. These days, you don't win championships in cars that are hard to drive. Of course, there is no experience like driving an Fl car: The sound, the incredible horsepower; the ridiculous braking ability, and the sheer competence of the chassis combine into sensory overload of the best sort. No matter how good a racer you might be, at nine-tenths of your ability, the car is likely only at six-tenths—at best. Not that you'd want to drive it anywhere near that hard anyway, as the risks and costs associated with failure are simply too great. You don't want to be the guy who tears the cover off the home run record baseball. In Europe there is a well-established group that organizes regular events for these cars and does it up right when they do, but in the U.S. you'll be renting a track, assembling a crew, and going out on your own. The good news is that if you don't succumb to the red mist, not much on these cars seems to break and with limited use the costs of running aren't that bad. If you do have a faihtre, the solution is simple and always the same: Pack up the car and send it back to Italy. Aside from tires, brake pads, oil, and water, there's not much you can change on these things yourself By the way, make sure you know someone who speaks fluent Italian if you need help—English won't cut it. Regular readers know that I often look at the relative weightings of "weapons grade" values (i.e., go play with it and have fun) versus "collector grade" values (the investment qualities) in any particular car As you can see, this car goes so far in the direction ofcollector grade that even thinking ofowning it for its racing potential is delusional. As a collectible, the importance of its provenance is undeniable, and though the car isn't yet very old, Schumacher is still rewriting the record books. So, was this a rational purchase at nearly $1.7 million? Consider that Ferrari Testa Rossas and GTOs sell for six times that much, though these cars come from racing's "golden age" and are certainly more usable as well. Perhaps a more appropriate comparison might be something like Mark McGwire's then re- cord-setting 70th home run baseball, which sold for $3 million in 1999. By that standard, you'd have to call Schumie's Ferrari a bargain at twice the price. Even coming off McGwire's bat, a baseball doesn't go 200 miles per hour (Historical and descriptive information courtesy of the auction company)• America's Oldest Ferrari Dealership 03 NE 122nd, Portland, September 2004 59

English Profile 1953 Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk I This Aston seems to have been banged around more than Drea de Matteo's character on "The Sopranos" by Steve Serbo DETAILS Years produced: 1953-1955 Numbers produced: 565 Original list price: £1,850 (approx. S4,440) SCM Valuation: S30,000-S35,000 Tune-up/major service: 11,200-12,400 Distributor cap: $75 Chassis #: Top of upper right chassis rail in engine bay Engine #: Stamped on top right side of timing cover Club: Aston Martin Owners Club—Canada/ U.S.A., Attn: Susan Laskey, c/o Freeman & Co., 1301 Avenue of the Americas, 30th Floor, New York, NY 10019 Web site: www.amoc-na.org Alternatives: 1951-1954 Jaguar XKl 20 coupe, 1951-1958 Alfa Romeo 1900, 1951-1958 Lancia Aurelio coupe SCM Investment Grade: C COMPS Chassis number: LML537 Engine number: VB6E/50/I 272 T his competition-modified DB214 Mk I was supplied new to Lawrence & Hilton Ltd. of Blackpool, and spent much of its life in the Sussex area. A list of the car's competition successes is highlighted by class first places at the Curborough Sprint in 1992, 1993 and 1994, the Goodwood Sprint in 1994 and 1995, and the Wiscombe Hill Climb in 1994 and 1995, among other finishes that have made it one of the most successful DB2/4 Mk Is in recent history. Upon acquisition in 1991, a previous owner sent the car to Jack Moss at Four Ashes Garage for a complete engine overhaul, bodywork refurbishment and general mechanical and cosmetic detailing. The interior was also re-trimmed and fitted out with new carpets. Then in 1992, the car went to Nigel Dawes at Malvem to have the bonnet restored before returning to Four Ashes to have the rear axle and differential rebuilt. A high-backed competition driver's seat was fitted around 1994, together with full chassis-mounted competition harnesses for passenger and driver. At the same time the steering column was renewed and the brakes overhauled. Subsequent modifications have included a special ATL safety fuel cell fitted into the standard tank location and filled from the original filler. A master "off' switch and fire extinguishers have also been installed as part of the program of creating a practical, competition-ready car with much improved performance. The project was reported as having consumed a total of $45,000 by 1996. The car was purchased at a Sotheby's auction in May 1996 by a client in the U.S. At the time of purchase, the car's owner reported it as having a fully known ownership history, unusual for a car of this age. The car 64  has since returned to the U.K., after a period of gentle use abroad. When sold in 1996, the vehicle possessed extensive ownership, restoration and service histories, and it is hoped that these will be available at time of sale. Finished in red with black interior, the vehicle is presented in good condition in every respect. The SCM analysis: This car sold for $42,199 at Bonhams' Newport Pagnell auction held on May 8, 2004. Forget about this entirely forgettable Aston for a minute. 1 promise I'll come back to it. But first, a bit of perspective. 1954 Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk I Lot #228,5/N LM1779 Condition: 1 Sold at $50,025 Bonhams; Newport Pagnell, U.K. ; 5/11/2002 SCM ID# 28303 1957 Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk ll Lot #206, S/N AM300/1284 Condition: 2 Sold at $45,856 Bonhams; Newport Pognell, U.K 5/11/2002 SCM ID# 28306 Our collector car hobby has recently taken the kind of turn akin to Ben Stiller becoming a household name. It's a positive development if you like that kinda thing, but c 'noon, who'd have thunk it a few years ago? Back in the mid- '90s, $50,000 bought any number of different Grade A+ classic cars, and Ben Stiller was just the dorky, born-on-third-baseand-thought-he-hit-a-triple son of zany couple Jerry Stiller and Anne Meara. Stiller had been fighting acne and looking for his chops, and we car geeks were overjoyed that the collector car bubble had burst and great cars were becoming affordable again. Sports Car Market

Page 63

Jump ahead to today and guess what? Ben's face has cleared up, and all the cool cars are being snapped up by wealthy dudes approaching retirement age. Even lots of old cars that no one really cared about a decade ago are becoming quite sought after while Stiller now commands Sean Connery money. Collector car prices seem to either be solid or soaring and no, this is not a bubble this time, no speculative group of orthodontists spending your kids' braces payments. Case in point: I just drove to Cannel for the Speedster festival and saw a field of Porsches that stretched as far as the eye could see, but I never spied any "for sale" signs. Everyone I spoke with was looking to buy yet another car, and not one conversation I had with anyone out there went anything like, "I need to off my Carrera Speedster in a hurry because I need tuition for my kid's private kindergarten." More like, "I'm finally going to pop for my dream ride." What this means for fellow car dealers and brokers across the land is that there isn't much available for us to stock or for our customers to buy. People in the trade have waiting lists for great cars, and it is truly a seller's market right now. Whether a new collector or a seasoned veteran, we all possess a punch list of our dream cars. I've recently been well priced out of that Aurelia Spyder or Siata 208 I've always wanted, and likely you've recently seen a few on your list move out of reach too. Of course, what this means is that second- (or third- or fourth-) tier collectibles like Porsche 356Bs and 912s, non-matching number Corvettes, Ferrari 2+2s, Jaguar E-type Series II coupes, American cars that don't carry any "muscle" prefix, and countless other rides are now being loved like the Olson twins. To top it all off Ben Stiller is considered funny. How does that saying go? Oh yeah, "There's no accounting for taste." Okay, back to the curious Aston at hand, a car now benefiting from said phenomenon. Can't afford to buy a DB4 or DB5 (or can't find one)? Well, consider a DB6 or DB2/4 Mk I. Can' 'find that bargain pre-1959 Ferrari to use on the next Copperstate? (Of course you can 't.) How about this Aston instead? While a race-prepped Mk I was a tough sell a few years ago, today people are buying them up more often than not, it seems. Call it trickle-down economics. An Aston Mk I would not be my first choice for a race car; but this rig seems to have been bought right if that's what you fancy. Just keep in mind that the "gentle use" claim in the description is wishful thinking. You can be sure that this car has been banged around more than Drea de Matte° 's character on The Sopranos. Just look at what's already been fixed: Both the hood and steering column were subject to recent rebuilding. 1 would equate piloting a Mk I on a vintage racing circuit to driving a Land Rover Series I quickly: "It 's an adventure, Nigel." Still, I'd rather be clipping apexes behind the wheel of this car than sitting through a Ben Stiller movie.

Alfa Romeo Profile 1947 6C 2500 Berlinetta Touring Sport At a hefty 3,000 pounds and with only 95 horsepower, the 6C 2500 Sport was far from an AA Fuel dragster by Ramond Milo DETAILS Years produced: 1938-1953 Number produced: 1,256 (6C 2500 Sport, including all body styles) Original list price: approx. $6,000 SCM Valuation: $40,000-$50,000 Tune-up/major service: $500 Distributor cap: $150 Chassis #: on left side of firewall, or on coachbuilt cars with modified firewoll on front crossmember Engine #: right side of block, below curbs towards front Club: Alfa Romeo Owners Club, 10 Raskin Rd., Morristown, NJ 07960 Web site www.arot-usa.org Alternatives: 1946-1952 Delahaye 135M, 1947-1954 Cisitalia 202, 1946-1950 Maserati A61500 SCM Investment Grade: C COMPS - Chassis number: 916.015 B y the later 1930s and during the early 1940s, thanks to the highprofile successes won in motor racing by its sports and Grand Prix cars, Alfa Romeo had earned a well-deserved reputation for producing outstanding road cars. The groundbreaking and innovative engineering of Vittorio Jano was responsible for one of the most outstanding designs of all time, the 6C 2500. This 6C 2500 with Berlinetta Touring Sport coachwork by Milanese coachbuilder Touring was made by Alfa Romeo in 1947, supplied new to Luigi Ledosti and Company, also of Milan, and first registered in the U.K. in September 1951. The coupe is claimed to be an original and unrestored example, hence its appearance, which was described by a previous owner as "used." Incredibly, the 13,889 kilometers displayed when consigned for this sale are believed to be the genuine total for this car from new. The current condition of the chassis, coupe bodywork, and red paintwork is reportedly very good. The interior is original and the 2,443-cc, six-cylinder engine and four-speed manual gearbox are in very good order. The SCM analysis: This car sold for $69,865 at the H&H Buxton auction held on April 7, 2004. Early in the '20s, automotive engineers became aware that the fourcylinder engine could never be fully dynamically balanced. (The same was true of eight-cylinder engines, which were really just two joined fours.) However, the inline six (and its derivative V12) were naturally balanced. The slightly higher cost of a six, as opposed to the four, was more than offset by its quicker revving and higher output. Thus many sports car manufacturers, including Alfa Romeo, favored sixes. Beginning in 1920, Alfa produced six-cylinder cars continuously through the end of 1953. The 6C 2300 engine was developed under the auspices of one of the great automotive engineers, Vittorio Jano, and powered Alfa to a string of international victories. In 1937, after Jano's departure, Bruno Trevisan took charge of the design and development of Alfa's six-cylinder cars and the 6C 2500 was the next logical step. By 1939, production was humming along. In typical Alfa fashion, the 6C was offered in a variety of body styles, 66  ranging from Jour-door sedans called "ministeriale" (these tend to be donor cars today), to the honest-to-goodness factory race cars. With some exceptions, all 6C 2500s shared the same chassis with various wheel bases ranging from 325 cm (about 128 inches) to the 270-cm (about 106 inches) Super Sport. Power ranged from a low of 90 hp at 4,200 rpm in the "coloniale" (to be used primarily in African colonies) to 110 hp at 4,800 rpms in the Super Sport. The difference between the engines was due to the usual factors. like camshafts, compression ratios and the number of carburetors. Standard Alfa construction practices continued: a four-speed gearbox (the top three gears were synchronized after World War II), large hydraulic brake drums, independent front and 1949 Alfa 6C 2500 SS Spider Lot #18, S/N 915810 Condition: 2 Sold at $129,375 RM; Monterey, CA; 8/16/2002 SCM ID# 28814 1948 Alfa 6C 2500 Freccia d'Oro Lot #703, S/N 916130 Condition: 4 Sold at $33,480 Barrett-Jackson; Scottsdale, AZ; 1/17/2002 SCM ID# 26943 rear suspension, 18-inch wheels, and right-hand drive. (Myth has it that this was done in imitation of the great touring and sports cars from Britain, including Jaguar and Bentley, but we would be interested in hearing other theories on this subject.) The sportier; two-door versions of the 6Cs rode on wire wheels, which for some strange reason always had hubcaps hiding them. The bread and butter of the 6C production range was the Sport model, with a 95-hp motor and a 300-cm (118-inch) wheelbase. It came with many different body styles, but the most frequent were factory built (as in the Freccia d 'Oro two-door coupe) and Berlinetta by Touring. Because of the rather generous wheelbase, the rear seats were even comfortable. Depending on the number of grappas consumed, a claimed top speed of 155 kph (96 mph) was obtainable. However, at a hefty 1,350 kg or Sports Car Market

thereabouts (roughly 3,000 pounds), the 6C 2500 Sport was far from a AA Fuel dragster I don't have any contemporary acceleration tests, but would guess that 0-60 mph was pushing 20 seconds. The late Pat Braden called the car a "sheep in wolf's clothing." According to various records, a total of 1,256 cars were produced. (This is a guesstimate—never take production figures from this era as absolute.) Excluding the pure race cars, the most interesting and valuable examples came from the last three years of production. These 109 examples built from 1951 to 1953 were fitted at the factory with the SS engine (triple carbs, 110 hp), and predominantly had interesting bodies by the finest coachbuilders. Some Alfisti consider these SS-engined cars a separate sub-series, with an appropriately much higher market price than plain vanilla examples. The most valuable of these are the Touringbodied cabriolets, which, when in perfect condition, can command upwards of $200,000. dreaded value tax. At almost 70 grand, I would say this car sold for fair money. It's a large, comfortable car that needs to be capital-D driven to achieve maximum performance—just sitting behind the steering wheel and adjusting the radio won't do it. If, for less than $50,000, the new owner can make the car presentable and reliable, he has a car that will be accepted into nearly any vintage event in the world. The late Tom Congleton had a magnificent 6C 2500 SS Berlinetta that he drove in the Copperstate 1000 and the California Mille numerous times, and it always attracted a great deal of attention. Tom Congleton with his 6C 2500 SS. Which brings us to chassis #916015. According to my records, this example was built as a 1948 model (finished in November 1947) and "officially" sold in the beginning of 1949.

III DHC, 1958-1962 Alfa Romeo 2000 Spider, 1960-1961 Porsche 3568 Cabriolet S(41 Investment Grade: B COMPS Chassis number: B24S-1195 A race-developed V6 engine, superlative handling and sensational Pinin Farina styling: These are the ingredients of a sports car classic and the Lancia Aurelia B24 has them all. The B24 represents the ultimate development of one of the most influential designs to emerge from post-World War II Italy. The Aurelia was launched at the 1950 Turin Motor Show, the first car ever to employ a V6 engine. The all-aluminum, 60-degree V6 of 1,754-cc displacement was designed during the war by Francesco de Virgilio. It used overhead valves operated via short pushrods instead of Lancia's traditional overhead camshafts. The Aurelia's body was of similarly advanced unitary-construction. The suspension retained Lancia's "sliding pillar" independent design in the front, as first used on the Lambda, but in the rear was fitted a novel semi-trailing-arm layout, another world first. The transmission was also unusual, with a two-piece prop-shaft and combined gearbox and rear transaxle, on which were mounted inboard brakes. The B10 saloon was joined in 1951 by the Pinin Farina-styled B20 Coupe, a fastback "2+2" with a shortened wheelbase. With its combination of sports car performance and sedan practicality, it can be said to have introduced the Gran Turismo concept to the world. The V6 was increased to 1,991 cc in 1951 and it was this unit that went unto the B20. Lighter and higher geared than the saloon, the coupe was good for a top speed of over 100 mph. Starting in 1953, the third-series (and all subsequent iterations) of B20s were powered by a 2,451-cc, I18-hp version of the pushrod V6. This unit was also adopted for 1954's B24 Spider, the first open Aurelia, which also featured a leaf-sprung De Dion rear axle. Capitalizing on the Spider's success, Lancia introduced a more practical B24 convertible in 1955, soon after production of the Spider had ceased. Again styled by Pinin Farina, the B24 Convertible looked superficially similar to its open sibling, but in fact was a total re-design that shared no panels with the predecessor. Offered fresh from a complete tune-up and check-over, this superb B24S Convertible was restored by and for noted Lancia collector Dr. Paul Guttman. The restoration, undertaken in the early 1990s, included an engine rebuild by recognized Lancia expert Steve Garland. Finished in maroon with tan leather interior, the car features Borrani chromed wire 68  wheels and comes with a rare, un-restored hardtop. The SCM analysis: This car sold for $92,000, including buyer 's premium, at the Bonhams & Butterfields auction held at the Museum of Transportation in Brookline, MA, on May 1, 2004. The price, though near the top of the SCM Price Guide range, represented a good buy of an important Lancia model. The B24 is the most highly valued of all post-war Lancias. Possessing advanced engineering, elegant style and superbly entertaining road characteristics, these are truly complete collector cars. The convertibles were built on the same 96.5-inch, short-wheelbase chassis as the Spider America (so named for its intended market) and used a slightly less powerful, 110-hp V6. Top speed was 107 mph. More civilized than the uncompromising Spider the convert- 1955 Lancia Aurelia B24 Spider America Lot #311, S/N B24 1008 Condition: 1Sold at $118,453 Bonhams; Monaco; 5/18/2002 SCM ID# 28391 1956 Lancia Aurelia B24 Convertible Lot #328,5/N 824S 1202 Condition: 1Sold at $83,100 Bonhams; Monaco; 5/18/2002 SCM ID# 28392 ible was also more successful, with 521 built through 1959, as opposed to 240 Spiders (about 20 of which, according to Lancia lore, are said to still be entombed in the hold of the Andrea Doria). While the rowdy, raw Spider prefers to be pushed, giving its best with high revs in a hustle along a twisting road, the convertible is a more sedate creature. Deeper doors in the convertible decrease the stiffness of the rockers, meaning the convertible has more shake than the sporty Spider On the other hand, the convertible's larger clutch, slightly larger brakes, and fourth-gear overdrive make for a more relaxing and user-friendly driver Some owners actually feel that the convertible, with top up, is quieter and feels more luxurious than even the B20 coupe, thanks in large part to the lack of the secondary echo that the coupe's roof creates. If you 're shopping for a B24, it 's worth knowing that most have already Sports Car Market

been restored When values soared in the 1980s, the majority were brought up to show condition. By now, it likely that these restorations will need some work, but given the values of open Aurelias, it is generally worth the expense involved to sort one properly, as the costs are likely recoverable over time. (The SCM Price Guide shows values of convertibles ranging from $75,000-$95,000, and Spiders anywhere between $95,000-$120,000.) It is hard, but not impossible, to find B24s in need of complete restoration. Though there are still a few original cars to be had, finding one whose owner is willing to sell at a sensible price might be more difficult. If you do find one with needs, better that they be of the mechanical rather than cosmetic variety. Unit-body construction makes Aurelia bodies expensive to repair and complex curves everywhere don't help. The cars feature double-skinned door sills with an integral jacking point which should be checked for integrity. The Aurelia V6 engine is quite robust and parts are readily available from a few reliable sources here in the US. and in Europe. As on all Italian cars of this period, it is important to check the state of the braking system, even on a restored car If the car has not been used regularly, the master cylinder (located underneath the car) and wheel brake cylinders can seize. Make sure that the brightwork is complete, as some trim pieces including the grille and door handles are all but impossible to replace. The good news is that if they are there, the chromed brass can be restored to like-new condition quite easily. Bumpers have been available on and offfor a number ofyears, and most, ff not all rubber parts are available. While the convertible carries an SCM Investment Grade of just "B" (the Spider America is an "A '), that rating is certainly arguable. Yes, the Spider is more sought after by some, but the sophisticated appeal of the convertible and its limited production numbers still quality it as a bluechip '50s ride. The Aurelia B24 feels much more modern on the road than many contemporaries, including the Alfa Romeo 2000 Spider or Aston Martin DB 2/4 Mk III. As such, Aurelia convertibles are perfect for longdistance rallies and tours and provide both high-speed cruising prowess and ample storage space. The car pictured here presented itself well when it crossed the block, with paintwork, interior and chrome trim finished to a high level. Its Borrani wire wheels are a desirable option, which can easily add over $5,000 to the value of the car The unrestored factory hardtop is also rare and valuable, worth an extra $2,500 or so. Even though few owners use their Aurelia convertibles as anything but fair-weather drivers, the hardtop does look good beside the car at a concours. A friend who owned a B24 convertible for many years swore that with the hardtop on it was one of the best GT cars he had ever driven. Assuming that the mechanicals of this car match the cosmetics, and with prices of B24 Spiders and convertibles both on the rise, I would call this handsome example "well bought."

German Profile 1988 Porsche 959 Porsche 959 values are suffering from a simple problem: The cars are just not old enough to ascend to that high platform of market adulation by Jim Schrager DETAILS Years produced: 1988-90; 1992-93 Number produced: approx. 208 Original list price: approx. $275,000 SCM Price Guide: 5150,000-$175,000 Tune-up/major service: $3,000 (at the factory) Distributor cap: included above Chassis #: on horizontal bulkhead under front lid, forward of fuel tank Engine #: on right side of vertical support for fan shroud Club: Porsche Club of America, P.O.

It was the first automotive production use of DuPont's Kevlar aramid fibers. The suspension has three ride height settings, as well as three dampening settings for the shocks. Its sophisticated antilock braking system is controlled by highspeed microprocessors augmented by run-flat Bridgestone tires. The 2,849-cc, twin sequential turbocharged and intercooled flat-six engine runs a maximum boost of one atmosphere and uses water cooling for the six individual cylinder heads. The result is a maximum horsepower of 450 at 6,500 rpm. This power is transmitted through an electronically controlled all-wheel-drive system. Top speed is 198 mph and 0-62 mph is achieved in 3.6 seconds. The list of the Porsche 959's specifications could go on and on. Suffice to say that it was a tour de force in any number of areas and was the first of a new breed of ultra-high-performance supercars. Some 200 "Komfort" models were built and allocated to preferred clients throughout the world. The example offered here is the first 959 delivered in Italy and is offered by its original owner. Finished in metallic gray with triple-grey leather interior, it is original throughout and in excellent condition. The car shows 59,500 km from new, has never had an accident, and the service book is stamped accordingly. It comes with its handbook, tools and a title from the principality of Monaco. Important automobiles to own, and even more satisfying to drive, 70  well maintained Porsche 959s rarely become available on the open market. There is perhaps no more revolutionary automobile in the latter half of the 20th century. As the original supercar, it represents a technical achievement that may never be surpassed. The SCM analysis: This ultimate modern Porsche sold for $204,097 at Bonhams' Monaco auction held May 15, 2004, against a pre-auction estimate of $195,000-$220,000. Bonhams; Monaco; 5/12/2001 SCA ID# 23566 1988 Porsche 959 Lot #721,5/N WP022295213900171 Condition: 1 Sold at $133,950 Bonhams & Brooks, Sussex, U.K.; 7/6/2001 SCM ID# 22986 Yes, that's a lot of money in absolute terms. But for a 959, it's just the going rate. And worse, 959 values been flat for the past decade, while other special Porsches—like the 904 and the 550 Spyder—have risen by at least 50 percent during the same period. If 959s are so darn wonderful, why aren't they appreciating too? Rarity certainly isn't the issue. While many iconic cars (think: Ferrari Daytonas, 356 Speedsters or 930 Turbos) were made in relatively large quantities that obviously create limits to their appreciation potential, the 959 was a legitimately limited-production model. Just over 200 copies were produced, a modest volume that bodes well for future appreciation. (By comparison, just over 100 904s were built, and about 140 550/550A Spyders left the factory.) One strike against the 959, especially compared to the 904s and the 550 Spyders, is its lack of competition heritage. While used in the occasional off-mad rally, the 959 was not used for circuit racing. But still, we're talking streetable supercars here, so this isn't the crux of the issue.

959 values are suffering from a simple problem: The cars are just not old enough yet. Part of what makes a vintage car into something special is the way our view of it changes with the passage of time. Certain vehicles speak for an entire generation, they mark important advances in automotive development, and they revamp our thinking about what can be achieved by four wheels and an engine. Although it always takes time to determine which cars will ascend to that high platform of market adulation, I think the 959 will, in fact, make it. What Jam less sure about is the timing of the market movement leading up to that ascension. When the 904 was in a similar situation back in the '70s, you could pick one up for about $10,000, but they were difficult to sell. Nobody really cared about them back then, as they were not yet old enough to become icons, and yet way too old to be useful on a racetrack. Plus, they were maintenance intensive. It wasn't until about 25 years after they were new that 904s hit the big time. Today they're worth $375,000-$500,000, and it's a seller 's market. 904s are rarely offered, and when they are they nearly always bring record prices. This simple law of supply and demand has not yet turned in the 959's favor Like the 904 back in the day, it's currently a buyer 's market for 959s, with an ample supply available. (Not only are the cars regularly available in Europe, but high-line brokers like Michael Sheehan are able to get you one quite easily. Plus, a firm in California is converting a batch to US.- legal specs.) What's different about the 959, however is that it still has not hit a rock-bottom depreciation point, like the 904 did—and this may never happen. Here's an interesting comparison to illustrate the point. In the early '70s, $10,000 bought you either a banged-up 904 or a brand new 9115. Today, the $200k you 'd pay for a 959 pays for two new 911s and a Boxster As you can see, today the market is wiser to the future potential of any supercar That why we're seeing these stagnant $200k prices, and as such, the 959 will likely never become the forgotten gem that the 904 was. Still, a 959 will always be a thoroughly desirable and exotic addition to any first-tier collection. I think there's money to be made on 959s, but like any stockbroker will tell you, it 's all in the timing. Will they start their climb this year or in a decade? That 's one 1 don't have the answer to.

Porsche Gesprach Jim Shrager Swap Meets in a Post-eBay World Consider how you're going to get stuff home before you go—you don't want to just throw an oily engine in the back of your Cayenne f you want to spend a fun Saturday morning fully immersed in the sights, sounds and smells of vintage Porsche, you can't go wrong with a good, old-fashioned swap meet. Further, I am happy to note that reports of the demise of swap meets are highly exaggerated. While it's true that eBay provides parts access 24/7, even that ultimate in convenience doesn't always provide the best deal—or the most enjoyable shopping experience. I I've just returned from the Stoddard swap meet in suburban Cleveland, Ohio, one of the largest Porsche events in the Midwest. This meet almost died two years ago, when the management changed format from a hard-core I'm sure there's a 356 lens in here somewhere. Porsche-only swap meet and impromptu car show, to a Porsche-Audi fun picnic. While everyone is supposed to love a picnic, that wasn't the case with Stoddard—nobody came. This year they went back to their roots and held a plain old Porsche swap meet and it worked just fine, with the aisles as jammed as any. With lots of cars and plenty of vendors, it made for an enjoyable Saturday morning that was well worth my drive across two states. RITES OF PASSAGE Attending Stoddard has long been a rite of passage for owners of vintage 356s and 911s. Some of the finest Porsches in the Midwest can be seen at this venue and I can attest that there were plenty of interesting cars this year. You can see Porsches that are old and driven, cars with original paint, and some in various states of disassembly—all useful if you're in the midst of a restoration project or trying to make up your mind what kind of Porsche you want to buy. Among the many 356s and 911s in the car display area, I also saw three remarkable 914s, one of which had a claimed 44k original miles and original paint. (It was for sale, asking for offers starting at $10,000.) There was a fantastic 1955 silver Speedster that had been driven from a thousand miles away, a lovely 356 SC sunroof coupe, a rare 1967 912 soft rear window Targa, and a host of newer cars. Even more Porsches could be seen in the parking lot—some quite wonderful and some just strange. Speaking of strange, I will never understand why some people try and sell parts at swap meets at full retail prices. Although it seems silly, some individuals and businesses drag their parts to swap meets as if they were at a retail storefront, which isn't the reason that enthusiasts come to these events. They expect "swap meet pricing." Although this retail valuation might be an effective strategy if a customer comes along who needs exactly what you have, it effectively stops the, "Gee, I never knew I needed one of those till I saw this one cheap," impulse. Most of the time, these retail-style sellers go home with most of what they brought—and how smart is that? And of course there are always the dreamers. One vendor at Stoddard had a very nice 1966 911 factory wood steering wheel, but with no price on it. (Don't you hate that?) When I inquired, he said a 356 wood wheel recently sold for $1,200, so this one must be worth about the same. 72  I didn't bother to tell him it was worth about 75 percent less than what he was asking—why spoil his fantasy? Needless to say, he went home with his precious wheel. BARGAIN HUNTING Not everyone is a reluctant seller. I've never left a Stoddard meet without a couple of great buys. This year I scored six 356C steel road wheels for $10 each (these are worth about $40 apiece as cores; I needed them for roll-around wheels on parts cars), three excellent-condition 914 Mahle alloys for $20 each (worth about $100 or so per wheel), and a brand new OEM European front turn signal box for a SWB 911 for the bargain price of $150 (list is about $500, but they have long been unobtainable). Now these deals don't jump out and hit you in the head—you have to hunt around and you have to know what you are looking at, but once you get into the swing of things, there is always much to be found. Most swap meets also have booths from regional book and toy vendors that can make this sort of collecting much easier, as when you pick up books and models at a swap meet, you don't have to pay the sometimes deal-killing shipping costs. Of course, the ability to look at anything you might buy in person, to touch it and see its condition up close, is the number one reason I like to shop at swap meets. As easy as eBay is and as many items I've bought through the Web site, purchasing some things can be difficult because until you see a part in your hand, you may not know exactly what you are getting. I recently bought a rare set of wood dash pieces for a 1966 911 on eBay for the apparent bargain price of $19.11, but when the pieces arrived, they were junk. I took a chance and lost, but if! had seen them at a swap meet, I would have just walked away. GET THEE TO A SWAP MEET The rules of the game at swap meets are simple. Get there early, say 7:30 a.m. or so. Go to buy or sell, but not both. If you do go with a friend, split up at first to cover the most ground, quickly, but make sure you both know what the other is looking for. Cell phones and walkie-talkies are a great way to stay in touch. And a few points to remember: 1) Bargains move fast. If you find something you really want, just buy it then. 2) Consider each engine a core unless you hear it run. 3) Consider each price a point from which to negotiate. 4) And consider how you're going to get stuff home before you go—you don't want to just throw an oily engine in the back of your Cayenne. Here are a few other meets I can recommend. One of the biggest and most lavish Porsche swap meets takes place each January in Anaheim, California, known as "Dunkel's." This one often attracts international visitors and famous Porsche fanatics such as Jerry Seinfeld. Hershey, Pennsylvania, hosts one of the largest all-Porsche swaps each April; Stoddard happens in June; a recent addition is the all Porsche auction and swap in Auburn, Indiana, in July; and Ski Roundtop hosts an event in September in New England. For even more events, check with your local Porsche club or just Google "Porsche swap meet."• Sports Car Market

Finished in anthracite metallic with charcoal leather interior, and equipped with dashboard-mounted GPS and almost every conceivable luxury feature available, it has covered just 13,395 miles from new and is presented in mint condition. The SCM analysis: This vehicle sold for $85,530, including buyer's premium, at Bonhams 'Geneva auction held on March 8, 2004. Few brands in recent automotive history have made their mark as quickly as Hummer Whether it's the real-thing HI or the Chevroletderived H2, just about anyone can summon a visual picture of one of these SUVs—a military Humvee on the nightly news or a perhaps soccer mom's H2 blocking your view of oncoming traffic. . just another 4x4, the Hummer is an all-terrain vehicle in a class of its own, as capable off the road as it is imposing on it. The Hummer owes its existence to the U.S. Army's requirement for a "go-anywhere" workhorse, and AM General was given the goahead for its production in 1985, since when more than 150,000 military examples have been delivered. In 1991, AM General made the decision to offer a civilian version, virtually indistinguishable from its military forebear. For those unfamiliar with how such a brutish shape has become as clearly ingrained in our collective memory banks as even the most beautiful of sports car designs, a bit of back story is necessary. AM General Corporation traces its roots to 1903 and the Overland Automotive Division of the Standard Wheel Company, which later became Willys-Overland, the builder of over 350,000 World War II-era Jeeps. The company had a series of name changes after the war, the result of various convoluted business dealings through the '50s and '60s. Then in 1970, American Motors Corporation purchased Willys, then called "Kaiser Jeep." A government contractor subsidiary was spun offfrom AMC 's new acquisition a year later; this was AM General, a builder of buses, dump 74  trucks, concrete transporters, and the well-known postal Jeeps. In 1979, the United States Department of Defense was looking to replace its venerable military Jeep with a vehicle designed to meet a new set of specifications. Always a lover ofjargon and the subsequent shortening of same, the military was asking for a "High Mobility Multi-Purpose Wheeled Vehicle" (HMMWV), which became popularly pronounced "Humvee." AM General won the bid and began building the vehicles in 1985; subsequent contracts have extended production to the present day. Just as the WWII Army Jeep had paved the way for the C1 series to be marketed to the public, in 1992 AM General capitalized on the Humvee's 1969 Mercedes-Benz Unimog Lot #549, S/N 404114055148 Condition: 2 Sold at 527,930 Silver; Fountain Hills, AZ ; 1/16/2004 5CM ID# 32148 1954 Dodge Power Wagon Lot #51, S/N 2232130718 Condition: 2 + Sold at S49,680 Barrett-Jackson ; Palm Beach, FL ; 3/19/2004 SCM ID# 32799 visibility during the Persian Gulf War by introducing a civilian version, dubbed "Hummer" It quickly became a favorite of the Hollywood set, with Arnold Schwarzenegger as its chief proponent. In 2000, AM General and GM began a joint development and marketing arrangement that led to the little-sister Hummer, last summer's flavor-of-the-month H2, and a rechristening of the original model as the "Hl." At introduction, the Hummer Hi was available as a two- or four-passenger hardtop, a four-passenger wagon, or with an open canvas top. MSRP was between $46,550 and $52,950. Options included air conditioning, central tire inflation system, run-flat tires, sliding rear window, 12,000-pound winch, brush and headlight guards, a deluxe interior package, trailer towing unit, and more. Pundits compared the pricing scheme to a no-bid military contract—Hummers have never been inexpensive. Sports Car Market

They were designed to be durable, not pretty. Inside a 1990s-vintage Hummer, fit and finish and quality of materials rival only those vehicles built under Eastern European Communist regimes; think gargantuan AWD Trabant "Spartan" would be an overly kind description, as barberchair vinyl was the order of the day. Instrumentation came from the "Hey let's stick another gauge here," school of design. In short, Hummer owners use the word "refined" mainly to describe a process done to crude oil. The Hummer pictured here is a 1999 model built in a wagon configuration, the most expensive of the civilian models. It would have sold new for $83,211, including a $790 destination charge, reflecting the inclusion of more standard equipment than the first civilian models. Indeed, the interior was treated to a running series of upgrades; however, the most significant did not happen until GM entered the picture in 2000. It bears mentioning that until very recently, going to GM for help with interiors can only mean that things must have been desperate indeed at AM General's design department. Though expensive and crudely appointed, Hummers are absolutely miraculous off the pavement, where the special talents called for in the original military specifications shine. With 16-inch ground clearance, flu-time four-wheel drive, fully independent suspension, the capability of fording water up to 30 inches deep and 60-percent slope-climbing ability, nothing compares. On-road, they drive better than you might imagine, but not nearly well enough that you'd want to drive one every day... unless you're somewhere like Iraq. Chief limitations are an interior noise level that is similar to being trapped in a Cuisinart chopping walnuts, and a top speed of about 90 mph. That said, while our subject Hummer 's under-14,000 miles are "low," finding relatively unused examples Stateside is easy enough, as these are usually an owner 's third, fourth or fifth vehicle. If you're considering adding this "real deal" SUV to your collection, know that maneuvering an HI to the coffee shop can become a major event in an urban setting. With its lane-filling stance—Hummers are 86.5 inches wide, compared to a late-model Chevrolet Suburban at "just" 78.9 inches—finding a parking space can pose a problem. Using one to run the kids to practice is not the province of the HI—that's why they sell the H2. Think HI if you own a cabin in a remote area, or want to get seriously into off-roading. Where owning a Hummer in the land of the Red, White and Blue can be a statement of patriotic pride, it no longer carries the cachet it did a decade ago. In Europe, however; Hummers are rare and viewed as either sheer lunacy or braggadocio on a grand scale. Having apart interest in an oil well is a good idea, with diesel prices on the Continent at well over $4 a gallon, and the HI only gets about 10-15 mpg—slightly better than the H2. Piloting an HI in Europe is something like the antithesis of driving a 2CV in the US., and that 's likely why this one made such big money. Used His are easy to find for well under $50,000 in the US., so this truck's new owner could have probablyflown here first class, checked into a Four Seasons for a week, found a nice example, and shipped it home for the same money he paid in Geneva. Instead he chose to pay the premium for on-site delivery and instant gratification.

Since this issue has a lot of space devoted to Ferrari, and since this magazine is about collecting and investing, that's not an illogical question. W First of all, focus your thoughts on pre1974 V12s. Sad to say for all you Magnum P.1. fans, there's nothing in the serial production mid-engined V8 family that shows the slightest signs of value perkiness. And Boxer and Testarossa owners shouldn't give up their monthly "Flat 12'ers Anonymous" meetings, where each reveals what six-figure amount he paid for his car, and contrasts it with the fivefigure value it has now. But for cars with two seats whose names start with numbers like 212, 250, 275, 330 and 365, the market has been and will continue to be buoyant. Why? First of all, all of these cars, the Inters, Lussos, Cal Spyders, GTBs, GTCs and the like were built in tiny numbers, from 40 for a first-series PF Cab to 350 for a Lusso. Second, they're old. More than 30 years have passed since the last 330 GTC left Maranello, and time has both diminished the number of survivors, as well as making their near-archaic mechanical specifications more appealing. So if you're looking for something with four wheels and a horse on the nose to park your money in, stay away from the V8 Ferraris, as well as recent ones of any displacement. Go for the gold or, in this case, the old. My prediction is that all of the cars above, at the end of this decade, will be worth at least 25%, and in most cases 50%, more than they are today. —ED., Ex-Schumie 2000 Ferrari Fl.

Fiberglass and Kevlar bodywork. Front section paint marked. #263 - Interior soiled. Original dual Webers and Ultraplat radio. Cond: 3. SOLD AT $89,308. Although unlikely to be all that quick, a buyer rightly paid the top estimate for this delightful period piece that is instantly Mille eligible. Although tacky and tawdry, attractively so. And how expensive can it be to maintain, being Fiat based I call this the buy of the auction. Driver's seat leather scuffed. Engine bay and luggage area presentation only fair. Cond: 2+. SOLD AT $205,730. Despite some serious U.S. interest during viewing, a Swiss bidder paid more than expected for this slightly scruffy, and relatively high miles, 959. (See profile this issue.) As modern Porsches do the AWD thing much better and simpler, the allure of this car, especially with its extraordinary maintenance costs, has started to fade. #220-1998 MERCEDES-BENZ CLK-LM COMPETITION coupe. S/N WDB298370 1Y000001. Silver/black. 5.0-liter V8, 6-sp sequential gearbox, molded carbon-composite chassis. 19,000 km on chassis, 1,000 km on Brooks Monaco. Mechanically refurbished since then. Old repaint still very good. Original interior good with squashy leather. Cond: 2+. SOLD AT $359,162. An Indian collector paid the minimum required to land this lovely early Ferrari.

NOT SOLD AT $951,352. Nobody here was prepared to spend the $1,190,000 minimum necessary (the going rate established by two previous Bonhams auctions) to land this Homestead and Laguna Seca winner Owning and campaigning one of these defines the words "deep pocket." ITALIAN #267-1948 CISITALIA 202 roadster. S/N 101. Eng. #012. Light green metallic/beige. Odo: 3,074 kilometers. 1100-cc Fiat 14, dual Webers.

To beat off a challenge from a determined German, who wanted this dropdead-gorgeous Spyder America for his wife, an American collector had to pay $47,500 over estimate. He clearly thought it was worth gold plaque. Mileage since restoration commissioned by seller. Panels, paint, brightwork, and interior still virtually perfect. Cond: 1. SOLD AT $50,600.

Arguably one of the finest in the world, and arguably one of the most expensive as well. #258 1959 FERRARI 250 GT SERIES - 2 coupe. S/N 1629GT. Eng. #1629GT. Navy blue/tan. Odo: 748 miles. 3-liter V12, 4-sp. 4wheel disc brakes. France-registered. Restored some years ago by Dutch specialist to a nonconcours, but very good, standard. Only minor cosmetic wear. Cond: 1. SOLD AT $146,865. Much more affordable than 250 GTO, such 250 Columbo-powered two-seater coupes are great lookers and, judging from a demo run around the famous street circuit during viewing, this example was fully working, too. Hence it brought just over mid-estimate. 1959 FIAT JOLLY beach car. S/N 572517. Eng. #624460. Cream, orange and black sidewinders/cream canvas, wickerwork. Odo: 43,535 kilometers. One owner.

As such, many players in the collector vehicle game would rate Coys' staging of what must have been an expensive sale during the bi-annual historic race weekend at Monaco an extremely brave, if not foolhardy move—especially considering that the London auctioneering dealers took on Bonhams with a head-to-head fixture on the same day, at the same time. C Although several cars were logged as being sold under the hammer, some over the telephones, the final results that appeared some weeks later on the Coys Web site were rather different. A total of $2.8m worth of cars were declared sold from the rostrum, but after some sales unwound and others were sold post-block, the final stats would appear to be 27 of 60 cars sold for a 45 percent sale rate, adding up to $2.1m. Unlike a couple of years ago when Coys held its sale in a convention center across town on the far side of the street circuit, Coys principals Douglas Jamieson and Chris Routledge set up their rostrum by the heliport this time, in the cavernous Espace Fontvieille.

Following the war the car was placed in storage for 30 years, to be found by Jack Tattersal of Burnley in 1971, who was to restore and enjoy the car for the next 21 years until it passed to only its 3 rd owner in 1992! Supplied with a copy of the old style buff log book, and FIVA papers this is a highly significant SS100. retail standard. Cond: 2+. SOLD AT $18,038. A middle-of-the-road result, and about right. I still think decent TR3s are on the cheap side, combining classic looks with decent performance.

Market Reports Coys, Monaco restored some time ago. U.S. campaigned by Mickey Graham and then Euro raced by German vendor. Cosmetics still good following more recent repainting to non-period-correct color scheme. Cond: 2+. SOLD AT $44,445. Nice example of one of most desirable and competitive of all Els with benefit of some period race history. Shame about the color!

Trouble is, more and more of today's movers and shakers want to be discreet when they and their Rolexes are in a hurry. FRENCH #448-1934 BUGATTI TYPE 57 COMPETITION roadster. S/N 57300. Light blue/brown. RHD. Odo: 66 miles. 1935 ParisNice and Alpine winner. Mileage since resto. Rebodied with current open torpedo 4-seater in aluminum during a post-2001 rebuild. Still repainted. Engine top end overhaul in 1988, to accommodate unleaded gas. Minor marks to paint; chrome good. Leather shows wear. Electric top working. Cond: 2+. SOLD AT $140,297. About right for a soft-top DB6 in this condition. Having lots of receipts is a good thing when buying a vintage Aston. #422-1968 ROVER P5 RALLY sedan. S/N 84300018A. White/black. Odo: 7,112 kilometers. 3.5-liter Rover V8. Long distance evented many times in recent years (London to Sydney, London to Cape Town, Inca Trail, Nile Winter Trail). Huge fuel tank, full cage, bull RHD. 8-liter Ntirburg motor. Period chassis claimed, fitted postwar with current open bodywork. Cycle mudguards. Evented in recent years. Cosmetically worn with paint flat and marked. Interior trim and dash only fair. Cond: 3+. NOT SOLD AT $121,297. Such one-offs are hard to price, even harder to sell. They're lots of fun for the money, but you're going to spend half your life explaining what it is to those who don't know. And those who do know, won't care. #415-1957 MERCEDES-BENZ 300SL roadster. S/N N/A. Strawberry Red Metallic/ tan. Odo: 60 miles. Mileage since 2-year-old resto by U.S. model specialist Thomas Taffet. 1 all mint and very glossy, including engine bay. Original, though renovated Ventoux body frame with closed top section by Gangloff also included. Matching chassis, engine, gearbox, and rear axle numbers claimed. Cond: 1. NOT SOLD AT $321,080. Despite front-of-rostrum position, this Bug simply looked too new to hook its next owner here. Maybe it should spend a few weeks in the shop of a U.K. specialist known for creating instant patina. #447-1962 FACEL VEGA II coupe. S/N HK 2A137. Maroon/Magnolia. 6.3-liter Chrysler V8, auto. Received $136,000 U.S. resto in 1990. Pebble Beach class winner, paint now only good with many marks. Brightwork bars, loads of rally goodies. Considering very hard life, surprisingly straight panels and clean paint. Interior strictly functional. Whole car too far gone to ever be returned to street spec. Cond: 3. SOLD AT $16,410. Such Marathon machines are really hard to sell, at any price. This one-off bravely offered without reserve here, made about the right money. A fantastic buy if you've got a reason to have one, and far cheaper than trying to build one yourself. #421-2002 BENTLEY CONTINENTAL T coupe. S/N CX01517. Yellow/black. Odo: 16,800 miles. Only very minor cosmetic wear to paint, alloys, and interior. Nay system, concert hall sound system. Cond: 1, NOT SOLD AT $208,108. Elton John also had a Conti in this easily marked color If you want to stand out and be noticed by the paparazzi, then this 90 of only 4 produced by factory in this hue.

Since then, progressively refurbed in UK. polish-marked. Interior still excellent. Cond: 2. SOLD AT $81,460. Just over low estimate for this former concours queen which, in closeup, had seen better days. Almost ready for the next external makeover Makes you wonder, if it had had better care, would the resto have lasted longer? GERMAN #456-1929 MERCEDES-BENZ SSKSTYLE roadster. S/N 40440. White/brown. Panels, paint, chrome, and leather all good with only minor wear. Cond: 2+. NOT SOLD AT $58,865. Curiously, run up past reserve, knocked down as sold, and not appearing as sold by the auction house.

White, blue panels/black. 300 hp claimed for dry-sump motor, ZF 5-speed box, 100liter tank, full cage. Euro-raced during past 5 years. Much event wear to panels and paint.

By the late 1980s in Swiss Obrist Collection. Later owned by F 1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone. Superbly restored at some time and still completely mint. Cond: 1-. SOLD AT $421,568. Such a historic Ferrari in such super condition has to be worth what was bid by an Italian present. One marque aficionado in town for the races reckoned this 275 GTB/4 warranted $440k to $450k. #429-1968 FERRARI 330 GTC coupe. S/N 11187. Rosso Corsa/black. Odo: 11,777 kilometers. 4.0-liter V12. Owned for the last 35 years by Italian fashion tycoon Ferragamo. Well restored at some time, clearly well maintained. Body, paint, and brightwork has only SOLD AT $14,360. Offer just met the minimum required Spot-on for this German GM special in only average cosmetic order Bitter has to go down in history as one of the dumbest names ever for a car #403-1985 PORSCHE 911 CARRERA flatnose conversion cabriolet. WP0222912FSIS0001. Pearlescent White/red. Odo: 9,362 miles. Mileage genuine. As parked up at Porsche U.K. for 10 years. 2 owners, the first a minor Saudi royal who funded a flatnose S/N and brightwork excellent. Leather and carpets like new. Cond: I. $128,831. The glossiness of the restoration boosted bidding to $12,000 above top estimate. Buyer thought it was worth it! A new current period record price for a 1900. They are comfortable for touring, but offer rather uninspired performance from the cast-iron block engine. #428A-1961 VESPA 400 coupe. S/N 30573. White/black. Odo: 199 kilometers. 393-cc, 12-hp. Likely to have done around 47,000 km. Fresh repaint, chrome, and retrim very minor marks. Leather, wood, and carpets all excellent. Cond: 1-. SOLD AT $91,925. Another very nice Ferrari, which, at the low end of estimate, was correctly valued GTCs have been stable in the $75,000–$120,000 range, depending on condition, for some time now #432-1969 ALFA ROMEO TYPE 33-3 GROUP 6 COMPETITION roadster. S/N 105 800 23. Red/black. RHD. Autodelta Team entry at Sebring, Targa Florio, and Le Mans. Totally authentic. Extremely dusty, exactly as last raced in 1970. All original, right down to job. Enlarged wheel arches, side strakes, nonfactory paint job. Paint and wheels very clean. Leather has some marks. Cond: 2+. SOLD AT $29,453. Over top estimate paid, though far too flashy for most 911 purists who want to avoid cameras and muggers. Perfect candidate for Pimp My Ride. Oh wait—it's already been pimped #445-1994 PORSCHE 962 COMPETITION coupe. Eng. #202. Red and white ADA-Nippon livery/black. 730-hp engine all unmarked. Engine and gearbox rebuilt 1,000 km ago. Cond: 1-. NOT SOLD AT $5,232. Nobody here appreciated that a trio of these Italian miniatures (actually assembled in a Piaggio factory in France) tackled the Monte in period, so this one would actually be eligible for Rallye Historique de Monte Carlo.

Amazing. Cond: 3-. NOT SOLD AT $630,270. Despite two auctioneers' telephones apparently being active, no live bids were spotted in hall.

Even though subjected to a chop-job early in life, the $220,000 minimum sought was on the high side.

Market Reports Bonhams & Butterfields, Brookline, MA IEB] Bonhams & Butterfields Brookline, MA May 1, 2004 Auctioneers:  Number of lots:  Number of lots sold:  Sales rate:  Sales total:  High sale.  Malcolm Barber, Toby Wilson 49 26 54% S1,834,337 Lot 341, 1950 Maserati A6G spider, sold at S588,000. Premium: 15% on first S100,000, 10% thereafter (included in prices of sold lots) Report by Dave Brownell Market opinions in italics or its third annual auction in conjunction with the Larz Anderson Museum of Transportation, Bonhams & Butterfields offered a diverse selection of cars ranging from majestic brass era marques to historic dry lakes roadsters. There are few more attractive settings for old-car auctions or events anywhere in the U.S. than the Anderson Museum grounds. Located in the leafy, affluent Boston suburb of Brookline, the museum is established in a carriage house that is all that remains of a magnificent home built at the turn of the 20th century. Done in a turreted Norman style and modeled after a French chateau, it is well worth a visit by any car collector. In addition to the 49 cars, B&B offered its traditionally large selection of automobilia, a group of vintage motorcycles, a Cretors popcorn wagon, vintage bicycles, nautical-related material, plus the remains F through before the cars. Despite Bonhams' automobilia specialist Toby Wilson's rapid selling style, this portion of the sale consumed over six hours and more than a few attendees departed before the cars began, an hour later than scheduled. The culprit here was really the nearly 200 pieces of Harley Café material, mainly consisting of gold records and framed photos of semi-famous people. (I was nearly in tears when I got outbid for the autographed Hulk Hogan photo.) When the cars finally appeared, the majority did find new garages. The pre-1915 results were mixed, with a rare 1913 Mercer roadster selling but three other brass cars staying put. The feature lot 1950 Maserati, very well done and good looking enough to make anyone want to own it, fell right within estimates at $588,000 with premium, the high sale of the day. Another attractive Italian car, a well-restored '56 Lancia Aurelia B24S convertible, brought a totally deserved $92,000 (see Profile, p. 68). A Full Classic '29 LaSalle phaeton for $51,750 seemed a particularly good buy among the pre-war domestics. New England has always been a tough sell for consignment car auctions. We Yankees are spoiled by a superabundance of desirable cars from all eras which we can buy and trade privately within a short drive or a phone call (or occasionally even find in barns). While the thinking has always been: "Who needs auctions?", Bonhams has successfully overcome this attitude with their past three sales at the Larz Anderson and deserves full credit for doing so. I look forward to next year's sale—hopefully all the Harley "memorabilia" will have long since been disposed of—D.B. of the memorabilia from New York's Harley-Davidson Café—the majority of which had already been auctioned at a West Coast sale. There was also a splendid collection of Lalique radiator mascots that was offered before the cars crossed the block. This amounted to over 500 lots to sit ENGLISH #658 - 1927 ROLLS-ROYCE PHAN- TOM 1 wagonette. S/N 82EF. Eng. #CX85. Black/red leather. RHD. Odo: 6,850 miles.

Traditionally, Mecum's Fall Classic at Pheasant Run Lodge in St. Charles, Illinois, has been a more impressive auction, but this sale has certainly raised the bar.—D. G. ENGLISH #A57-1964 MORRIS MINI COOPER S coupe. S/N KA254553146. Red/black. Odo: 87,413 miles. 1071-cc 14, twin SU carbs, 4-sp. The left door fits very wide at the bottom. Exterior chrome pitted; especially bad headlight trim. Top had been cut, with sliding sunroof *nstalled. No apparent serious rust but front Report by Daniel Grunwald Market opinions in italics A lthough Dana Mecum always manages to get some nice cars out to his spring sale at the Boone County Fairgrounds in Belvidere, IL, by last year, the venue was beginning to feel a little dated. An upgrade was needed—and what an upgrade we got. This year there were more large tents, including a sale tent with a raised auction platform and studio lighting, with large video screens on each side displaying live camera shots of the action. It may not have been Speed Channel, but it was the next best thing. The selection of quality American cars on display was as exceptional as the new facility. Indeed, the muscle car market was alive and well in Belvidere: A Z-16 1965 Malibu SS said to have been featured in some Chevrolet advertising sold for $262,500; a one-of-one 1968 Z-28 convertible said have been built for Chevrolet general manager Pete Estes bid to $1,000,000 without meeting the reserve; a '70 GTO Judge went for $180,000 and a '70 LS6 Chevelle convertible made $130,000. Yes, it's still possible to relive your teenage dreams—all you need is a pocketful, a very large pocketful, of money. The four-day sale over Memorial Day weekend saw some rain, but it could have been much worse. This part of Illinois had been under cloudy skies almost every day With muscle as Mecum's specialty, there were few foreign offerings to be found. An '86 Ferrari Testarossa sold for $43,575, a real-market price but one that is sure to cause apoplexy among prancing horse fans, especially as the prices of American mounts with lumps of iron under the hood continue to skyrocket. 106  for weeks, with some localized flooding not too far away. Friday was beautiful and 70 degrees, but by the time all the feature lots crossed the block on Saturday, things had gotten a little wet—not enough to dampen the bidding though. I deal.

Lots of stone chips on the hood and front paint and some on the windscreen as well. Right headlight trim is loose. Lots of surface scratching is visible on the chrome trim along with some pitting around the trunk. Some patina on the interior leather including a small tear on the right door panel. Interior wood is very good. Undercoated. Looks to have been cared for but not babied. Cond: 3. SOLD AT $9,900. Probably a daily driver for years, and the mileage backs that up. Maintenance records can make the difference between a fair price and too much. These cars are still dumpy looking, it will probably be another ten years before they start to look classic. So you 're buying one now just for the ride, not for the appreciation. floor was wet under the carpet. Both front seats have holes. Interior is generally scruffy with rust and scratches everywhere. Cond: 4. NOT SOLD AT $9,250. Not a happy little car-3 different brands of tires, and the trunk smells of gas despite new fuel lines on the two tanks. The clutch and the shifter move very stiffly and it really runs rough. The Cooper S is easy to fake and more research is needed on this one, especially with the missing engine plate. It looks to me like an eBay mistake that should have been unloaded here at the high bid. #B208-1974 MGB convertible. S/N GHN5UE346096G. Orange/black. Odo: 86,852 miles. 4-sp.

Don't know about timing belts. If the major service was kept up, this car was quite reasonably bought. The original invoice was $111,549, so most of the depreciation is already used up.

Market Reports Mecum Auctions, Belvidere, IL I've learned that whenever I suddenly think I'm the smartest guy in a crowded auction tent, it time to step outside and get some fresh air. #627 1999 FERRARI 355 Fl SPYDER - convertible. S/N ZFFXR48A7X0116235. Yellow/brown leather. Odo: 10,180 miles. 375hp V8, paddle shift. Tubi exhaust. Some dead bugs and stone chips on the front end around the grille. All else like new. Cond: 1-. SOLD AT $102,900. This was the last year of the excellent 355. Only a V8, but 4.6 seconds to maintenence, the cost of owning the car is approximately $2.59 per mile at this point. I think I would drive it a while longer too. AMERICAN #F34-1933 FORD SPEEDSTAR HOT ROD coupe. S/N 18142685. Purple/creme leather. Odo: 200 miles. 405-hp, 350-ci V8, auto. Good paint with great flames. Chrome coil-over front end. Rear-view monitor, a/c. 60 should impress anyone. The Fl-style paddle shill was a $9,500 option on this car Wonderful styling (should not be dated as quickly as the Testarossa) and yellow color make a statement that is hard to ignore. They've held their value fairly well after the 360 Modena introduction hit. Which means that Modenas will probably drop to $125k when their replacement arrives, and stick there for a few years. JAPANESE #F33-2001 TOYOTA MR2 SPYDER convertible. S/N JTDFR320610040468. Blue/red/ black cloth. 1.8-liter 14, 5-sp. Scratches and dings under the paint on the front. Gaps wide on front end. Special aero fenders. Bride seats. Carbon fiber everywhere on the interior. Cond: 2+. NOT SOLD AT $46,000. "2 Fast 2 Furious" movie car Full wide-body kit and turbo. Cond: 1. NOT SOLD AT $60,000. The Speedstar is one of my favorite body styles. This one was built professionally in the spring of 2002 and driven little. Won Coddington's Pro Pick in the fall of 2003 (without Coddington wheels). Certainly not an embarrasing offer, but owner wants $80k. 1950 MERCURY convertible. S/N 50LA39560M. Creme yellow butter/black/red leather. Odo: 89,352 miles. 255-ci V8, 2-bbl, 3-sp. Very nice restoration with some waviness on the window trim and a tiny paint chip on the nose. Some very slight orange peel. New #F27 - window frames. The only apparent flaw was a slight separation on the driver-side seat base trim. Cond: 1. NOT SOLD AT $75,000. A superb restoration with multiple high-level awards. 1995 AACA 1st, 1997 Meadow Brook Concours d 'Elegance, Olds national winner The bid may have been close, but not quite there today. #B277 1957 CHEVROLET CORVETTE - A true rolling billboard for go-fast product ads. The young people passed by the old cars and flocked like flies to this car Unfortunately they don't have the income to buy it yet. There must be a way to make lots of money with this car beyond the movie, but selling it at this auction wasn't one of them. 2001 ACURA NSX coupe. S/N JH4NA21691T000014. Silver/black leather. Odo: 16,117 miles. 6-sp. The rearview glass is bad. Front end and mirrors have a few paint chips. All else reflects the miles driven. Cond: 1 #Z100 - - . NOT SOLD AT $47,000.

Hard and old car that was driven behind a gravel truck once in its short life. Original sticker $88,845. nhout figuring for the taxes and the gas and . SOLD AT $76,125. Sold by the same consignor as the '53 Olds and the '51 Chevy in the sale. All were really fine cars and the bid prices reflected that. Strong price, but not undeserved. Those consignors who brought cars with needs and unrealistic reserves should sit up and take notice here. Very nice cars bring very nice prices. wiring, tinted glass, power everything.

Gold plating on the hood ornament is showing wear. All other chrome as well as the paint is high quality and as new. The gauges were slightly dusty inside except for the speedometer, which was very clean. The rest of the interior is new, as is the undercarriage. Some leaking is visible on the carburetor. Cond: 1-. NOT SOLD AT $0. A very well restored '50 Chevrolet convertible that is real-world drivable. Great colors. Listed in Mecum's post-sale data as a no show. Sometimes the data can be misleading. I did not see it cross the block but trust me, it was there. #F25-1953 OLDSMOBILE 98 CONVERTIBLE convertible. S/N 539B2664. Powder blue/dark blue leather. Odo: 80,054 miles. 393-ci V8, 4-bbl, auto.

Clean car with many little details that should have been attended to. With a no-sale at $120,000, it probably wouldn't have mattered.

This looks to be an amateur restoration with the emphasis placed on drivability. It still needs some decent detail work but it should make a good project car As this model continues to climb, another $5k can be spent here and the owner can still come out okay. #B287-1969 CHEVROLET CAMARO RS/SS coupe.

Market Reports Newport Pagnell, U.K. 83 1 Bonhams Aston Martin Motor Cars Newport Pagnell, U.K. May 8, 2004 Auctioneer:  Number of lots:  Number of lots sold:  Sales rate:  Sales total:  High sum:  U:_L __I_ lames Knight 32 21 66% $1,676,151 lot 217, 2002 Aston Martin Vanquish V12 coupe, sold at $261,545 Premium: 15% on the first $53,700, 10% thereafter (included in prices of sold lots) Report by Richard Hudson-Evans Market opinions in italics Aston at auction. It was the fourth time that the factory service bays were taken over by Bonhams to stage this all-Aston Martin auction, which as in previous years, was run in conjunction with London-based specialist dealer for the British marque, Nicholas Mee. Despite having to consign stock for a packed calendar of sales on both sides of the English Channel and the Atlantic, the U.K. Car Department and Mee managed to muster 32 cars. Apart from the usual trade suspects who inhabit auction salerooms in the hope of capturing bargains or sweeping up unsold leftovers, the retail faithful who had made pilgrimage to this fixture could be split into two distinct groups of consumers. The first were Aston Martin Owners Club members in the traditional uniform of double-breasted blazers and cloth caps, men who fondly remember the good old days when Astons used to beat all comers and not just win marque events. The second were the newmoney Aston buyers with their designer watches and partners, for whom 007 being issued one by Q impresses far more than the David Brown era of long, long ago... Salvador, who is he? The former would only be seen in V8s and earlier models; while only Virage, DB7 and 9, or Vanquish would make it on the latter's driveways. It was a James Bond fan with the minimum $261,545 required who landed the top-priced car in the sale, a dummy machine gun-equipped 2002 V12 Vanquish with only 380 miles of close-up work on the Die L ike its Geneva office's annual Gstaad auction for Ferraris, Newport Pagnell has become the annual one-stop shop for those attempting to sell or buy an 118 Another Day set. Stunning to look at... but would you dare use it? Among other noteworthy sellers, the 1995 DB7GT Factory Prototype 001 in gentleman racer trim of some ali-panels, a pair of high-back buckets and a full cage with side bars raised a mid-estimate $142,085. A 1988 V8 Zagato Volante with only 30 kilometers from new in all-black sold for a top forecast $126,157. A 1960 DB4 racer, last restored in 1998 by R.S. Williams, would cost you much more to re-create today than the $122,175 paid here. $98,283 could have bought you either a 1963 DB5, a 1992 restoration acquired by a Discovery Channel featured bidder, or a 1989 V8 Vantage Volante that last won at concours in 2001, while a more-than-expected $94,301 was needed to take home a 1986 V8 Vantage coupe with fewer than 28,000 miles. The sale also confirmed that there are still takers for resto projects, even partdone and incomplete ones. A 1960 DB4 Series 2 left-hooker pulled $60,364 and a 1965 DB5 with much missing was taken on for $48,915. Those in love continue to be blind.—R.H-E. ENGLISH S/N LML/50/26. Eng. #LB6V/50/221.

Market Reports Mid-America Auctions, Maplewood, MN they were able to attract, and the eager and qualified bidders that attended, the folks at Mid-America showed once again why they are the leading auction company when it comes to the two-wheeled market.—B.MC. MidAmerica Auctions Mid-America Auctions 16th Annual Motorcycle Auction & Swap Meet Maplewood, MN April 17, 2004 Auctioneers.  Number of lots:  Number of lots sold:  Sales rate-  Sale total.  High sale.  Paul Baer, Todd Fistner, Dave Talberg 137 109 79.6% S422,975 Lot 37, 1941 Indian Four, sold at S36,750 Premium: 5%; $125 minimum (included in prices of sold lots) :11k4 Report by B. Mitchell Carlson Market opinions in italics much to the delight of the auction company and a crowd of eager bidders and riders, the weather was sunny and temperatures were in the upper 60s'. The top sale of the day was a 1941 Indian Four with a rare dealer accessory "pipe organ" exhaust, which sold for just $36,750, the least expensive functional Indian Four to sell at auction this year. Other good deals at the sale included a 1952 BSA 34 Competition that sold for $9,135 and a 1974 Honda CB750K for $2,205. Japanese bikes are starting to attract more attention from collectors and values are increasing, yet the prices are still in a range where they're attractive to novice collectors and those on a budget. id-America's annual motorcycle auction in the upper Midwest is a spring ritual that coincides nicely with retrieving your bike from winter storage. One of three major motorcycle-only auctions the company holds each year (the others are in Las Vegas in January and Dallas in late fall), the spring event can be a risky one, as April in Minne-snow-ta can range from sunny and 70 degrees to blizzard conditions. But this year Ma Nature cooperated and, M than that of previous years at this venue (last year's event drew a record number of 185 bikes), the sales rate was good, with almost 80 percent of the bikes finding new homes. And while every auction company would like to have tons of lots consigned, it's making the sales that puts cash into the coffers. Through the right-priced consignments While the 137 lots consigned was lower 126  Lycett saddle. Some cracking of the foot peg rubber is the only flaw. Otherwise, absolutely perfect. Cond: 1. SOLD AT $9,135. When sold by Hugh Anderson at a Mid-America auction about 4 years ago, it traded for $6,800. Further proof that investing in things that can rust lately beats the tar out of stocks, bonds, and annuities. Even if it is not a steetable bike (or perhaps because of it), the value is still going to go nowhere but up. #049 1954 VELOCETTE KSS mo- torcycle. S/N RS 8231. Eng. #KSS 9245. Black/black vinyl. Odo: 332 miles. 350-cc single, 1-bbl, 4-sp. Created about 4 years ago by former motorcycle racer-turned-restorer Hugh Anderson of New Zealand by installing a sporting 1940 KSS series engine into a more nimble 1954 frame. Atypical of this restorer, it is in superb condition, with almost no signs performed over a decade ago; since then, rode hard and put away wet. Cond: 3-. SOLD AT $3,465. This second-year "bathtub" rear fender gives a good indication on why it didn't catch on. Hoping to attract scooter enthusiasts looking to go upmarket, the oddball style appealed to neither them nor the general motorcycling market, and was discontinued in short order Another example of rarity and desirability not being one and the same. As the reserve was at $2,500, this sold very well indeed for a scoot that is in need of some TLC. #032-1959 ARIEL SQUARE FOUR motorcycle. S/N GM 1209. Eng. #XJ 242. Black and chrome/black vinyl. Odo: 15,740 miles. 997-cc 4-cyl, 2x1-bbl, 4-sp. Aftermarket handlebars and stainless steel battery box. Mix of parts of various-vintage Square Fours (such as the oil tank and seat), but generally the Mk11 series. Chrome plating quality varies on a piece by piece basis, as does the paintwork quality.

Black & white/black vinyl, white piping. Odo: 4,836 miles. 350-cc 2-cyl, 1-bbl, 4-sp. Accessory tank-top rack. Older repaint nothing to brag about. Chrome plating ranges from average to acceptable. Grungy muffler, frame, and ciriveline overall had minimal cleaning and no detailing. Tank side rubber in very good condition. Restoration , of wear or usage. Superb paint, chromework (including the fishtail muffler), and frame tubing. Original Bakelite front fork adjustment knob is the exception, with some gouging and chalkiness. Aftermarket low handlebars. Cond: 1-. SOLD AT $6,195. The pre-war KSS series was Velocette's race bike for privateers, so most likely this was a replacement engine or from a damaged bike to create this modern hybrid.

Dry-rotted handlebar grips. Drivetrain cleaned but certainly not detailed. Title is for a 1959 Ariel Square Four, but not for any of the numbers embossed upon this bike, so legally sold only on a bill of sale. Cond: 3-. SOLD AT $7,035. The enthusiasts' support network is very good for Ariel, the Maserati of vintage motorcycles. Engine and _frame serial numbers can be verified through the London public library (where Ariel 's corporate records now reside). Once the bidding cleared the $6,500 reserve, two phone bidders duked it out to the end. The same estate Sports Car Market

Market Reports Mid-America Auctions, Maplewood, MN also offered a shabbier 1958 Mid series with fewer correct parts that sold for $6,720. Price of admission for Square Four ownership is becoming rather expensive. ITALIAN #19-1971 MOTO GUZZI V7 AMBASSADOR 750 motorcycle. Eng. #47564. White/black vinyl. Odo: 5,298 miles. 757-cc twin, 2x 1 -bbl, 4-sp. Aftermarket accessory fairing and original hard side bags. All original miles and condition. Gas tank paint blistered around the cap. Overall crazed from age, while remainder of paint is in good condition. Onset of light corrosion on the plated fairing and saddle the bidding very spirited. Once the reserve was lified at $3,800, the bidding went nuts until the last person standing was a phone bidder from California. JAPANESE #013-1974 HONDA CB750K motorcycle. S/N CB750-2328806. Maroon/black vinyl. Odo: 25,001 miles. 750-cc 4-cyl, 4x 1 -bbl, 5-sp. Vetter fairing. Accessory crash bars and mirrors. Restored inconsistently, on an as-needed basis. Aluminum lower front forks exceptionally clean but covered with grinding wheel marks. Superb detailing of almost all CB750 is starting to become a mainstream collectible bike. Bidding activity was rather heavy, with a phone bidder on top of the heap. Will not ever equal a Triumph in value, but poised to be right on their heels within a couple of years. In this cared-for condition, it was bought very well. AMERICAN #037-1941 INDIAN FOUR motorcycle. Eng. #DCH 539. White/tan leather. Odo: 663 miles. 77-ci 4-cyl, 1-bbl, 3-sp. Vintage dealeraccessory 4-tube "pipe organ" exhaust system and marbled handlebar grips. Indian 2-place Chum-Me seat with rear chrome grab irons, plus front and rear crash bars. Aftermarket spark plug wires and industrial-grade oil pressure gauge. Dull, almost matte paint finish on the bag racks helps prove that this has been a garage queen for quite some time. Undercarriage clean but not detailed. A little garage rash on the ends of the fairing. Minimal wear on the seat. Lack of wear on foot pegs helps prove the low-mileage claims. Cond: 3-. SOLD AT $5,145. While a Guzzi tends not to have the general appeal of a Harley or Triumph, the lack of miles made engine components, either highly polished or exceptionally clean. All 4 carbs recently rebuilt; smooth throttle action. Old repaint of gas tank and side panels showing a few nicks and chips but holds a good shine. Includes both aflermarket (mounted on bike) and original seat. Cond: 2. SOLD AT $2,205. One of the most significant motorcycles that ever came out of Japan, the tanks and fenders. Function-over-form electrical wiring that is a mish-mash of all types of electrical connectors used since 1941. Overall in need of a good weekend worth of detailing. Cond: 3-. SOLD AT $36,750.

Market Reports Mid-America Auctions, Maplewood, MN fortunate aspects of an indoor auction is that the bikes weren't started, and I would've really loved to have heard 78 cubic inches of F-head Indian Four through 4 straight pipes. Not for the Harley-Davidson Credit customer; but for a biker with mechanical competence and good coordination for the hand-shift and foot-clutch, this would be a great road bike. While prices this year have seen some Fours exceed $50k, the selling price here is realistic for condition. #055-1942 HARLEY-DAVIDSON UL motorcycle. Eng. #42 UL 2216. Red/black leather. Odo: 166 miles. 80-ci V2 (bored out from original 74-ci), left-hand 4-sp shift. Accessory seat, mirrors, and lights. Good quality repaint within the past decade, but masked cially on the wheel spokes). New nylon speedometer cable. Cond: 3+. SOLD AT $11,550. Most folks usually associate the smaller WL or WLA (military contract) 45-ci bikes with 1942, due to the vast number of those built for lendlease and our own armed forces. However, the big flathead continued to be built for civilians for a while (and police forces during the war). A vintage full-size Flathead is a long way from today's Harley Tour-Glide, in both comfort and mechanical attentiveness. As such, prices are generally about 50% to 75% of a full-blown new Hog, so this UL comes in as a good buy. Especially true for this bike, since it is built to ride rather than be a garage ornament. #053-1948 INDIAN CHIEF motorcycle. Eng. #CDH 5337. Blue metallic/black leather. Odo: 29,265 miles. 74-ci V2, 1-bbl, 3-sp. Left-hand shift. Indian accessory saddle bags, pouch. Old repaint not expertly applied and starting to loose its sheen. Acceptable chrome, but not brilliant in luster. Some corrosion setting in on the wheel spokes. Roadmaster front fender missing the emblem. Generator and oil pressure lights missing from the center of fuel gauge. Generally could use a good detailing, but ready to take out and ride as is. Cond: 3-. SOLD AT $19,425. If this bike had a Chum-Me seat, a rear fender rack, and flex-pipe exhaust, it would be a dead ringer for the '48 Chief that my Dad used to own (hence my personal bias for Indians versus Hardly-A blesons). If I didn't already have an overflowing garage and several house projects to tap into my funds, I'd have been bidding in the thick of it, as $20k for a road-ready Indian Chief is better than money in the bank or any new Hog in the garage. As it was, when the bidding ended at $16k, the final bidder (who claimed to have once owned CDH 5337 30 years ago) raised his own bid to the reserve to get the bike. Indians will do that to you. #057 1950 HARLEY DAVIDSON 125 - - around the rear taillamp with cracking gaskets and faded lens. Paint on cylinder cases starting to peel off from the heat.

Glovebox Notes A brief look at cars of interest that have passed through the SCM stable. *Int** is best 2004 CHRYSLER CROSSFIRE COUPE compression and tinwork was straight. Cond: 4. SOLD AT $3,675. Harley :c first foray away from V-twins after WWII was copying the DKW 2-stroke one-lunger engine, converting it to SAE standards, and building it as the 1948 model 125—which became known as the Hummer Once the $1,900 reserve was met, the bidding kept going steadily upwards. As this represents the price of a fully restored Hummer, hope the winning phone bidder knew that it still had to be assembled. Evenfidly assembled and in overthe-top show condition, it is best served as a large garage ornament that you can park inside of a four-wheeled Hummer (H1 or H2). 1959 CUSHMAN motor scooter. Red/white vinyl. Single, 3-sp. Consignor claims that it was originally used by Phillips Petroleum Co. at one of their facilities in Idaho (hence the spark arrestor exhaust). No engine or frame serial number could be found anywhere on it (even by the local Cushman cognoscenti). Good repaint of frame and tinwork, but needs #132 - ridden minimally to qualify for vintage events. Non-Harley accessory rear fender rack and mirror. Impeccable paint application and chrome (even the flex pipes are in great shape). Very slight ripples on the right side of the fuel tank. Leather on the seat also rippling. In the course of sitting for a day, it generated the requisite two small oil drips. Cond: 1+. SOLD AT $15,750. The reliable Panhead engine (even if not quite to Evo engine standards), a sprung _frame that doesn't require a kidney belt for a ride across town, and an impeccable restoration with a proven track record all translate to a bike well bought—whether to be a show queen or actually to ride. #065 1977 HARLEY DAVIDSON XR 750 - - motorcycle. Eng. #1C1 0060H7. Orange and black tank; silver frame/black vinyl. 750-cc V2, 2xl-bbl, 4-sp. Set up for AMA "flat tracker" race specifications, and generally raced in the Midwest (initially by Randy Sexton). Rear brake only. Competition-ready with a freshly rebuilt engine. K&N air filters grungy. Now visually mangled when one of the unwashed masses at the auction didn't realize that Price as tested: $34,495 likes: Beautiful styling; classy interior, with simple, elegant switchgear and interior fitments; capable handling; powerful brakes. Gripes: Steering feels artificially heavy and lacks real feedback; ride is jarring on rough pavement; poor rearward visibility; built in egg-scrambler—flat-floor cargo area lacks tiedowns or nets and hot sun beams in. Fun to drive: **** Fun to look at: ***** Overall ownership experience: *** Verdid: The German-built Crossfire is a balanced sports car, more fun to drive than its close cousin, the outgoing Mercedes SLK320. Yet DCX is having a hard time moving the metal and is offering sweetheart leases. Perhaps the sorts of buyers who frequent Chrysler stores are looking for a cushy American cruiser—or most everyone who wants this sort of coupe parked a TT in the garage four years ago.—Bengt Halvorson 2004 BMW 645CI CONVERTIBLE more finish work to get it to gloss up. Spraycan restoration done to the engine. Loose fitting rear loop frame. Mish-mash of wiring. New generic rubber strips on the floorboards. Cond: 3+. SOLD AT $3,045. Cushmans have an extremely devout following in the Midwest, and there is very strong club support for all variants. This one is in that nether region of vehicles that are obviously done on the cheap: too much was spent on it to warrant buying and re-restoring correctly, and it's not worth what it cost to re-restore. In another decade when it falls apart the owner can start all over again. #063 1961 HARLEY DAVIDSON FLH - - motorcycle. Eng. #61 FLH 9123. Red, white stripes/black leather. Odo: 1,788 miles. 80ci V2, 1-bbl, 4-sp. AMCA Winners Circle award twice, scoring 99.5 and 95.5 points. Restored to the highest standards, and only September 2004 race bikes don't have kick stands and tried to handle it, neglecting to note that it was balanced on a servicing frame. The ensuing fall onto its right side only added to the mild race-worn patina. Cond: 3-. SOLD AT $16,380. Harley's race bikes were never issued titles, so good luck trying to put a license plate on it. However; as perhaps the only segment of racing in which the Milwaukee contingent has outclassed the Japanese (and the ONLY bright spot during the AMF years), this bike screams "Take me out to the historical races!" Don't worry about anything that seems non-stock, as there is no such thing as a truly stock ,67-series. Bought with confidence over the phone after the reserve of $15k went swiftly by.• Price as tested: $81,195 Likes: V8's performance and sound; firm but comfortable ride; amazing seats; excellent wind protection—top-down still tolerable at 70 mph; roomy trunk; parking assist helps prevent curb rash; almost hardtop-quiet with the top up. Gripes: Ridiculous back seats only make sense for mounting child seats; simplified iDrive still complicates routine tasks; dash on test car creaked loudly on rough roads; updated version of the Bangle Butt caps off 4,189 pounds of hulking weight. Fun to drive: **** Fun to look at: Irk* Overall ownership experience: **** Verdict: The SL-fighting 6-Series lacks the sex appeal and edgier manner of BMW's now-discontinued Z8 roadster, but it's a comfortable grand tourer. With such go-fast capability and hard-to-fluster handling, though, it's an exercise in discipline to slow down and cruise. While BMW will no doubt sell every one they can build, we wonder how long it will be before all the Bimmer die-hards are alienated by a line of cars that is growing bigger and more portly with every new model.—B.H.•

Motobilia 1 Carl Bomstead A Bumper Crop Of Badges A selection of early coachbuilder name badges made what can only be described as "aggressive money" acques Vaucher and his staff at the Fart et l'automobile gallery, located in East Hampton, New York, held their 12th successful catalog auction of automobilia on June 16. It's a rather anachronistic affair, with bids accepted by fax, phone or mail, and potential buyers contacted by telephone in the final hours of the sale to establish where the bidding is and determine a desire to continue. The process can stretch well into the late hours, as buyers are called back and given further opportunity to up their bids. The 373 lots appealed to a wide spectrum of collecting interests, and included car mascots, automotive art, vintage posters, authentic racing suits, and a wonderful collection of automotive coachbuilder badges. The vast majority of the pieces changed hands, as the sales rate was close to 80 percent. Apparently the old-fashioned, non-electronic means by which bids were solicited had no adverse effect on buyers, as prices were generally on the strong side of the ledger. At $9,775, a child's Shelby GT-R powered by a Briggs & Stratton gas engine sold for nearly the price of a new Korean subcompact. The kiddie-Shelby was built by Component Craft, #0002 of only three. While it was about ten years old, it was stated to be in excellent condition, and came complete with blue stripe, Plexiglas windshield, and "Mag" wheels. The pre-sale estimate was $6,000-$8,000 but when hammer finally fell the bidding had ended at nearly ten large. A strong price, but just imagine the look on your grandchild's face when the next birthday comes around. J Auction:  l'art et l'automobile Catalog Auction ; June 16, 2004 Highlight: Figoni Carrossier Badge—Lot 242 Estimate: 5450-5650 Sale Price: 51,150, including 15% buyer's premium A racing suit worn by Michael Schumacher when he won the 2002 San Marino Grand Prix had a pre-sale estimate of $12,000-$18,000, and sold for a respectable $13,225. The suit was complete with FIA and factory patches and the driver's name and event were noted in the waistband A few of the lesser priced but still interesting items included a Doble Steam Engine sales brochure that made a reasonable $253 and a copy of Juan Manuel Fangio's book, Fangio: My Racing Life. It was signed by Fangio and Dennis Hulme and sold for only $322. A selection of early coachbuilder name badges made what can only be described as "aggressive money," with several of the early American badges selling for downright astonishing sums. A rather simple brass Locke badge sold for $495, against an estimate of $150-$250. A very desirable Holbrook badge that carried the same pre-sale estimate went even higher at $575. Truly surprising was a Brunn badge that reached $690. Brunn was known for constructing a number of interesting bodies for both Lincoln and Packard, but today its reputation is far from that of the most famous European coachbuilders. the bargain at $748. Indeed, three name badges for the French carrossier Figoni created the most bidding excitement. One of the badges was red and dark blue enamel and dated from the late 1920s. The second was from the early '30s and noted the firm's address at "14. Rue Lemoine, Boulogne. Seine." The third was a pre-war badge that also carried the Falaschi name. All three were estimated to sell between $450-$600, but three strong-willed bidders pushed the final number to $1,150 for the first and third badges, leaving the second a relative Regardless of the venue, collectors seem to ferret out the items that they "need" for their collections, and l'art el l' automobile continues to provide fertile ground for feeding these needs. Making the process more user friendly can only help, and to that end l'art et l'automobile will be offering online bidding for its September 14 auction. While Neo-Luddites may chafe at the thought, it should be a nice improvement to bring this auction technologically into the 21st Century. After all, it's the things we're bidding on that are supposed to be the antiques.• 130  Sports Cor Market

Bike Buys Paul Duchene 1991-1994 Bimota Tesi 1D Bimota's most daring model was an uncompromising statement, with an aircraft-quality aluminum frame and a vividly painted, aerodynamic body that attracts attention even from non-bikers T he visceral thrill of that multicylinder song, the rushing wind, the taut mechanical reflexes and the beauty of Italian design are all part of what makes a Ferrari something special, a technological testament to life being about the quality of the journey above all else. Bimota occupies that same position in the two-wheeled world. The company was a skunk works from its creation in 1973 in the seaside town of Rimini, an area replete with talented design students, where test bikes are routinely ridden around the city. Co-founder Massimo Tamburini went on to greater fame as the designer of the Ducati 916 and MV Agusta F4, but he built his reputation by constructing frames for Yamaha and Aermacchi Harley-Davidson bikes that took several 250-cc and 350-cc world championships in the '70s and '80s. Bimota built about 12,500 bikes before it went bankrupt in 2001, though the firm is in the midst of a revival under new ownership. The motorcycles are uncompromising statements, with aircraft-quality aluminum frames and vividly painted, aerodynamic bodies that attract attention even from non-bikers. Over the years, Bimota has employed engines from all four major Japanese manufacturers, with the letters in the model name indicating the engine maker (HB is Honda; KB, Kawasaki; etc). For the record there are believed to be 304 Hondas; 1,116 Kawasakis; 5,183 Yarnahas; 2,946 Suzulcis; 2,154 Ducatis; 524 Rotax-powered Supermonos; and 315 V-Dues, Bimota's own, ill-fated 500-cc, two-stroke twin. Bimota always got more power from these transplanted engines than the original manufacturers, and top speeds of 160-170 mph are not uncommon for its bikes. On October 18, 1998 a modified Bimota SB6 was timed at 202.247 mph, at Maxton air base in North Carolina. This was the first recorded 200-mph speed for a normally aspirated motorcycle—and it happened in street trim on a 90-degree day. Any Bimota is a fine addition to an Italian sports car collection, but purists will seek out a Ducati-powered DB series. The DB I was made from 1985-1989, powered by a 750cc Pantah-derived motor, with 669 produced. The 900-cc DB2 used a 900 SS engine, with 665 built between 1993-1998. Bimota's most daring model was the hub-steering Tesi, the 132  ultimate in cutting-edge technology. It used an 851-cc Ducati motor (later stroked to 904-cc) with just 366 produced between 1991-1994. The Tesi (Italian for "thesis") was the brainchild of designer Federico Martini and two design students, Roberto Ugolini and Pierluigi Marconi. They replaced the conventional forks with a hydraulic hub steering system for the first bike, which debuted at the 1983 Milan show. But the Honda V4 motor they employed didn't work well and the project stalled for years, until Marconi became chief engineer in 1989 and fitted the Ducati engine. Hub steering has fascinated motorcycle designers for decades, as separating the steering, braking and suspension forces in the front wheel enables each to be better controlled. (Indeed, the 1920 Neracar employed such a system.) Other attempts to solve this dilemma have included BMW's Telelever system and designs by Foale, Hossack and Elf.

Road testers describe the Tesi as remarkably stable under extreme braking and cornering. The Tesi looks as though it has two sets of rear swing arms, with a monoshock at each end and a sophisticated system of rods steering the front wheel. Early Tesis had Marzocchi shocks, which were sensitive and difficult to adjust. Later models have Ohlins units which have proven much more successful. There were 127 Tesi 1Ds made in 1990-1991, 164 Tesi 1D SRs in 1991-1992, 50 Tesi ID ESs in 1993, and 25 Tesi ID EFs in 1994, at which point the company gave up on the bike, which had cost much of their resources. When shopping, look carefully for crash damage (especially to the front end) and make sure service records are current. Ducati dealers can handle much of the engine servicing, but it takes about nine hours to take one of the bikes apart, so any heavy maintenance is going to cost a bundle. Importer Moto Point (www.motopoint.com ) has Bimota spares and some new bikes including one Tesi ID SR, some DB4s, SB6Rs, and SB8Rs. Owner Bob Smith reports that Virginio Ferrari's 1987 world championship Bimota YB4R has been imported to the U.S., and Smith is also bringing in the SB8KRR with which Anthony Gobert won at Phillip Island in 2000. Other good resources for Bimota information can be found at www.bimota-central.com, which has Bimota news updates and lists bikes for sale, and at www.infoservizi.it/bimotaclubitalia/ home.htm, the Web site for the Bimota Club Italia. Bimota is selling a new hub-steering Tesi model, the 2D, which Superbike magazine recently tested and called "seriously quick and sorted." Powered by the air-cooled, 992-cc V-twin from Ducati's Multistrada, this cycle weighs only 339 pounds. But it costs a whopping $44,162, which makes the older models seem attractive at about half the price. Just don't expect to make any money soon, as these are bikes to enjoy first and foremost. They may appreciate someday in the future, but that's still a ways off. A Tesi will always be a blast to ride and a conversation piece in the finest Italian tradition, a bike worthy of parking next to your Ferrari.• Sports Car Market

Want to purchase by way of partial trade and cash. Price range $200,000 to $3,000,000. Trades can include classic or exotic automobiles, motor yachts, famous master artwork, or antique furniture. We would like to trade the down payment (minimum 20%) and pay conventionally the balance, or if desired by seller, pay seller on contract. • This method can help sell real estate inventory that has been sitting for an extended period. • This could also help sellers who have large capital gains concerns. With a large down payment in "trade" their taxable gain could diminish significantly. • Even if the seller doesn't want an exotic car or an expensive piece of furniture, these items can certainly be sold via consignment or outright sale HISTORICAL ANTIQUE MILLWORK The complete interior of Seattle's Austin Bell Building. A turn of the century building for which the downtown neighborhood "Belltown" was named.

eWatch he other day, while reading the Perfume Bottle Quarterly (don't ask), the magazine for the International Perfume Bottle Association, I came across the following: There are now an estimated 430,000 full-time eBay sellers, whose net revenues this year are expected to reach three billion dollars. eBay has achieved a 78-percent increase in revenues during the past two years. Last year 971 million items were listed for a potential audience of 94.9 million registered users, of which 41.2 million engaged in some activity during the year. T It's those kind of numbers that bring us such off-the-wall stuff as the 1945 Diamond T Woodie I saw listed recently with a "Buy it Now" price of $75,000. This was stated to be a prototype and the only one built, the recipient of a recently completed 30-year restoration. (And you thought your restoration took a long time!) Supposedly it had received the best interior and best pain (sic) award at the God's Country Auto Show which I am sure justified the seller's claim that it was worth between $120,000-$160,000. The seller also felt that since it had been offered to Jay Leno and he passed, by some twisted logic this was a plus. After 30 bids, the money reached just $30,375—not enough to sell. Here are a few more interesting things that the millions bought and sold during the past month: EBAY #6903945582-1931 MARX "CADALAC" COUPE. First Bid: $95. Number of Bids: 22. SOLD AT: $1,323.65. Date Sold: 6/13/2004. "Cadalac?" Marx intentionally misspelled the name of this toy to avoid any licensing problems with Cadillac. This example was said to be in nearly mint condition, and was sold in the original box. You can tell it was in un-played-with condition, as no tread wear shows on the tin wheels. The unique thing about this toy, above and beyond its condition, is that it came complete -,SUBSCRIPTION INFORMATION Sports Car Market magazine (ISSN #1527859X) is published monthly by Keith Martin Publications, PO Box 16130, Portland OR 97292.

One variation does not include the trunk and on many others it's missing due to rough play. It is rare for a desirable toy in this kind of condition to be offered, so the price paid here was most reasonable. EBAY  putting it on many collectors, "must have" list. The piece had a few paint touch-ups, the quality of which was difficult to gauge despite the seller's efforts to show closeup shots. This likely kept the price down, as these signs usually go for a few thousand more than what was realized here. EBAY #3727516186—AR- CHER GLASS HOOD ORNAMENT BY RENE LALIQUE. First Bid: $300. Number #3676838840—SINCLAIR AIRCRAFT PORCELAIN SIGN. First Bid: $100. Number of Bids: 33. SOLD AT: $7,544.44. Date Sold: 5/16/2004. This 48-inch sign is very rare and extremely desirable. A few years ago a handful of these were discovered in a deserted warehouse and they were quickly snapped up. The excellent condition of the one offered here is a major plus and the price paid, while not cheap, is in line with the previous sales. Any gas sign or oil can with an airplane rings the bell and the price marches up accordingly. EBAY #2252689138-1922 MICHELIN MAN TYRE MASCOT. First Bid: $1,000. Number of Bids: 25. NOT SOLD AT: $7,100. Date Not Sold: 6/27/2004. Biben- dum, as the Michelin Man is known, is one of the world's best-known trademarks and dates from 1894. He was born when Andre Michelin envisioned the silhouette of a man while looking at a stack of tires at the Lyon exhibition. Michelin used Bibendum for four mascots in the '20s, and the one offered here is the rarest and the most difficult to find in decent condition. While this example does show some wear, it is complete and unmolested. The few that I've seen sold have pushed five figures so the seller was correct in not letting this one go. EBAY NEWACADA. A •  *Ea _ gamy re . LOUIS MAPXECO.20OFIFTH AVE.NW YORK CITY #3679789308—KELLY TIRE PORCELAIN SIGN. First Bid: $9.99. Number of Bids: 23. SOLD AT: $3,650. Date Sold: 6/4/2004. This early advertising sign is very colorful and features the period Kelly girl, "Miss Lotta Miles," of Bids: 6. SOLD AT: $1,162.99. Date Sold: 6/9/2004. This is not the most desirable of R. Lalique mascots, but still, a decent example can bring $2,300, like the one that recently sold at Bonhams' Brookline auction. The problem here, as is always the case, was condition. There was a noticeable chip in the back of this example, and as a general rule any damage cuts the value in half. As we often say, before you step up it's necessary to inspect any and every piece carefully. 4•••• ---1-141 EBAY #2252044589—BUGATTI SIGN. First Bid: £450. Number of Bids: 25. SOLD AT: £15,100 (Approx. $27,600). Date Sold: 6/29/2004. The seller, in a brief description, stated that this sign once hung in the Bugatti showroom in Molsheim. Little else is mentioned other than that it is double-sided and it has been mounted in a glass case for preservation. The price paid is totally overthe-top unless, of course, .4141-U -64118 --tttkospotoo the provenance can be verified. If I were the buyer, I would be on a plane to the U.K. with funds in hand to inspect the sign prior to consummating the deal. If all checks out, the new owner has an amazing piece of Bugatti history that carries an equally amazing price tag.• POSTMASTER Send address changes to: Sports Car Market PO Box 16130, Portland OR 97292 CPC IPM Sales Agreement No. 1296205 111-11 Sports Car Market
