  1. You could always paint it pogferret purple! We'll have a paint party...everybody bring a brush and some beers .
  2. The publisher of Sports Car Market told me these kinds of cars are called "Fright Pigs" You could hardly go wrong with this from BavariaMtrWerks: 1984 528e...all in all a pretty car just needs interior, and tires, and they don't know what else... original motor gone comes w/ "Mercedes V-6" motor(not hooked up) tires(bald) dash is a little cracked(not hooked up) interior stripped transmission is on the back seat...loose parts in the trunk "the sunroof is gone and I don't have it" on ebay in Michigan, $400 starting bid, only 12 hours left, a seller needs money for college thing
  3. ...the 1970 NSU Ro 80 ...$12,500 of unforgettableness. Or Best Offer. Parts enough to build two(2) Wankel engines! Project Car. ( a steal on e-Bay in N. Carolina I think)
  4. 1970 DAF 33 (someone has this on ebaie)
  5. I know you were proud of the $299 car cover, but if'n you wanted to sell your 1969 Javelin, why didn't you show us a picture of it, FFS! 🙈🙈🙈🙈🙈 {# of bids for this $4,695 TARP: 0}
  6. Pew-Gee-Oughts are no longer available in the States. It looks inspired by the Volkswagen Rabbit. Well, it's not a PT Cruiser convertible, but it's a start!
  7. SUB-TITle: Worst Attempt To Fool People Into Thinking a Beach On the Detroit River, Michigan Is a Tropical Hawaiian Beach .........yes that's Detroit in the background. A one-off dream car/concept car promoting the 1967 Camaro called The Waikiki; with fake wood paneling, forced smiles and the smoggy haze of a grim northern town. Surf's not up yet -- but they got a hula-dancer goin'! Don't you wish you could be part of that scene? What say any of you? I think it's pretty boss myself...if only how it would piss-off Chevrolet fans if it showed up at a car show. To them it would be like a Corvette with a trailer hitch or Elvis in a kilt. Apparently it had Vauxhall Viva or Renault headlights and okra-colored shag carpeting. Curbside Classic did a story about the fotoshoot a few years ago.
  8. (Post No. 1 by Wilko220) I thought to reprise this great photo, numero uno on this thread. No idea what a Talbot Alpine is, but happy to learn what is dodgy about it. It does not look anything like the 1938 Talbot-Lago in the picture below. What happened? Good picture to assign captions to, tho: a. "The triumph of good marketing over bad engineering." b. "Ten men --- 5 escape hatches: every man for himself!" c. "None of us would be caught dead in this car, but you might!" I've been on here a few years, but never got around to this part of self-introducing yourself, for fear of being redundant.

  10. We should have heard back from someone by now if anyone bid on these fright pigs of the Pyrenees. I liked the two Panhard & Levassor sedans, the Autobiannchi, and the Stutz. All were beyond my ability to get. If all of us had chipped in to by the frumpy-looking red Miura, it would be cool to let one of the AS members who post on "Single & Sad" to troll it around behind their regular car on a trailer - park in various locations - and see if the girl situation improves: "Yeah........my old man stuffed this in his hanger and forgot, he did. Said she was runnin' fine, but carb No. 5 was acting up. Yeah, 20 years ago. Do you know anything about these cars, miss?" [fantasy conversation # 115] I tried to look at the site for results and found none.
  11. You could take it on those canals in the UK or Ireland and it would be a real speedboat by comparison.....if you could clear the bridges.
  12. 1984 Talbot VF ¨corrosion superficielle¨ https://thumbor.img.prod-indb.io/Qgkc4d07gYEuAyfh5gIWKQ0NNrI=/fit-in/400x400/2018/12/21/224003_474733184_ba720648cd477d81055c555a9d25889a

  14. There's a Packard straight-8 engine, 2 1940s Packard cars, a Renault 4CV, a Citroen 2CV, a Ford Consul Cortina 1200, and a Simca Coupe de Ville(foreground of above photo). They seem to all have their barn dust still on them except the ones that have been rained on for years. Fright pigs all of them, but I'm sure there's someone hankering after a Talbot Tagora or a Hotchkiss J.A.G Grégoire.
  15. The auction site has been updated with better descriptions of the cars. It turns out some are even French like Panhard & Levassor, Renault, Citroen, and Rolland Pillain. Yes, most of them are messed up, but only 19 shopping days left til they're all gone. If you feel like driving practically to Andorra to fetch a car. https://www.interencheres.com/vehicules/vente-de-voitures-de-collection-243124/ The weirdest thing I've noticed so far is that one of the Continental Mark IIs has the same estimated value as one of the Trabants, 100-200 euros.
