Comment on Pick of the Day: 1963 Studebaker Lark custom sedan by jj Campbell-Reidhttps://news.classiccars.com/pick-day-1963-studebaker-lark-custom-sedan/#comment-3792 Sun, 29 May 2016 08:56:09 +0000 https://news.classiccars.com/?p=64766#comment-3792 Yup…I had a 61 4 door Lark with quad headlights and the standard Stude 259 V8…I believe not too long after this yearage Studebaker in it,s infinite wisdom started to power up with Chev V8s … the full race kit Stude V8s with anti splash sump; high compression pistons and Paxton Supercharger would probably snot a modern Chev race motor to this day. My mate here in NZ had one and ran out of speedo reading at 230 mph !!…

Comment on Celebrity bump lacking in sale of Jerry Seinfeld Porsches, VWs by Norman Gaineshttps://news.classiccars.com/celebrity-bump-lacking-sale-jerry-seinfeld-porsches-vws/#comment-3791 Sat, 28 May 2016 21:13:41 +0000 https://news.classiccars.com/?p=69419#comment-3791 No, I disagree. Maybe the issue IS “Jerry Seinfeld” and this obvious show of his minimal “star power”,added to the fact that his “fans” ain’t got no money for ANY Porsche much less these ones. As for his cars being “the very best examples of that particular model”, interesting statement.Plese state your sources supporting this contention. “Jerry Seinfeld” isn’t a “brand”, as the millennials would have it, just as Steve McQueen, who was NOT the “King of Cool” when he was alive or any other time has become a merchandising venue, as is proved by the prices paid for any irrelevant item from his life. This isn’t true for “Jerry Seinfeld”. Facts show it to be so, including this sale.

The Elvis Presley Special was really great.

Comment on Pick of the Week: 1927 Willys-Overland Whippet 93A by Keith Salernohttps://news.classiccars.com/pick-week-1927-willys-overland-whippet-93a/#comment-3782 Fri, 27 May 2016 02:22:08 +0000 https://news.classiccars.com/?p=27240#comment-3782 I think that the car is way under priced! I have a ’27 Willys Overland Whippet model 96. It is an older restoration and I value the car at $12,500. I see that this is an older article and I’m sure some lucky guy/girl snatched it right up! That should have had a value of about $20k.

Comment on Pick of the Day: 1967 Chevrolet Camaro SS by Cayce Cashhttps://news.classiccars.com/pick-day-1967-chevrolet-camaro-ss/#comment-3774 Thu, 26 May 2016 18:13:17 +0000 https://news.classiccars.com/?p=74429#comment-3774 Beautiful Camaro! Camaro is the favorite Chevy of choice of mine. I have owned a ,69, ’83, and I now have a ’97 SS w/5,600 miles. Your ’67 would go great with my 30th anniversary edition, but I am almost 70 yrs old, have worked most of my life and don’t have a big chunk of money to purchase your little beauty. God bless. Cayce Cash, Alabama.

Red lights were added, as were the flag stanchions after it left FoMoCo service. Some of the “facts” are a little off. It was owned by FoMoCo,never assigned to the Secret Service, only borrowed by them when the President or First Lady was in NYC.

Comment on Rusted-out ‘barn-find’ Ferrari Dino breaks bank by Malcolm GRAHAMhttps://news.classiccars.com/rusted-barn-find-ferrari-dino-breaks-bank/#comment-3763 Mon, 23 May 2016 21:11:51 +0000 https://news.classiccars.com/?p=22531#comment-3763 Is it not the auctioneers job to get the best possible price for whatever it is they have on the block? The story is fascinating but, as Brian says, the reason the police were showing an interest in the car seems to have been skipped over and would probably have affected the sale price – you don’t lock a car up for forty years if you drove through a puddle and splashed a policeman’s trouser legs. On the other hand, rusted steel is art and this hulk would look superb as the centrepiece in a well lit room full of pristine examples – you’d have to clean up under it every day with a dust pan and brush as it gradually fell to bits.

Comment on Pick of the Day: 1958 Packard coupe by Ed Hornehttps://news.classiccars.com/pick-day-1958-packard-coupe/#comment-3762 Mon, 23 May 2016 17:01:22 +0000 https://news.classiccars.com/?p=58334#comment-3762 Packard took a lot of criticism about the styling of the 1957-58 models but if you look at some of the other cars styling in the same years they actually look as good or better than most of them. Examples some unusual styling were Edsel, Hudson, Nash, Desoto, Buick, Olds etc. Also Packard took a lot of heat for sharing a platform with Studebaker when practically all of the other car companies did the same thing at the time and still do, for example the Chevrolet and Pontiacs, Olds and Buick, Ford and Mercury, etc. Its just that a lot of people are afraid to try something different and unique and tend to be easily swayed by overly negative reviews in car magazines.
