I didn't catch anything today, but I have read about how much some of the cars go for at those auctions. Its amazing what some of the old American musclecars will go for if they are very rare editions in mint condition! Its insane!!
The prices hit $300,000 for some of the exotic European cars. Interesting looking at the people bidding, most look like regular kind of people but must have some serious cash to be collecting these cars.
Yeah, I was confused when I saw that it was on as I thought it was going to be on later in the month. I watched it until I realized it was last years show and I had already seen it. I wish SPEED had done a better job of telling viewers what they were watching. It was cool to see some of the 50's-60's era mussel cars again as well as the Austin Healey Mk3's and British cars of the same period. I bet this years show will be better yet!
:agree Rule of thumb, "Cars most valued are those that fifty year old geezers (like me) lusted over in high school." Have you noticed that the super cars of the thirties and fifties have fallen in price as that group dies off. Muscle cars are in a weird spot 'cuz there were so few great cars between '72 and the late eighties. That and the buldge in population means there's a lot of guys that would've like to have a Hemi Cuda convertable even if they graduated from HS in '85.
You're right DreamerDave, the muscle cars far and away went for the better prices. I was surprised at how low that one white MK II went for. It wasn't restored but it had been repainted and it went for something like $30,000. No steal to be sure, but those were almost hand built cars in their day.
Yeah that's it. It was not the 396/375 HP monster, but a milder 396/350 HP. It would still scoot! I had the side stripes but on right after this picture was taken, but didn't get anymore pictures of it after the stripe job. Too bad it looked nice. That year is still my favorite.
Well, it’s day 3 of stay home and hunker down. My employer directed us to work from home. Then one of our engineers tested positive and they are running around like their hair is on fire.
We go for a fast walk in the afternoon just to counter scurvy! It’s very strange
How is it for you?
I don't know what part of the continent you are located, but in Montreal things are getting serious. Only gas stations drugstores, grocery stores and of course the gov't liquor stores are open. As of Saturday night groceries are close on Sunday to give employees a rest. Travel between various...
Had a conversation with him and his wife about an hour ago at the end of our driveway. Two of the most loving and caring people you could ever meet. I still remember talking with him after the 2nd operation and him being somewhat disappointed with the progress at that time...
Nissan has filed a trademark with the Canadian government of what the new Z sports car logo is going to look like. The logo you see appeared on the NewNissanZ forum shortly after the filing.
Earlier this week they also filed trademarks for the same logo in New Zealand and Australia.
