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.
Just thought I would give my fellow Ohio forum members some good news . On July 1 we will no longer have to carry a front plate on our cars ,I removed my front plate years ago when I added my turbo kit to increase air flow . Needless to say there are certain cities near me that I have avoided...
I was checking out SK tools website and noticed that everything was 30% off through June 23. I don't know if this is a good deal or how often they do it but I thought I'd pass it along.
I was eyeballing this set for $188. I believe it's on...
....to add to the collection.
My inventory is pretty much limited to Craftsman, Gearwrench and a few Harbor Freight ratchets.
There was a time, that I'd find myself in situations where my ratchets wouldn't tighten/loosen a nut because they had such a low tooth count that required more...
Normally I don't do stuff like this. But it struck me this morning as I was looking at my own Facebook feed. And it was the very first picture of him sleeping with his diecast of a Solstice. Back in 2016, a then teenager, took not just a liking to our cars, but completely fell in...
