This legislation was offered with support from the classic car community. It merely instructs the Dept. of Interior to make the register an official record, thus preserving it.
PS: Government already governs your classic car by issuing license plates and requiring you have insurance.

Comment on Future classic: Honda S2000 by John Mayohttps://news.classiccars.com/future-classic-honda-s2000/#comment-4376 Fri, 23 Sep 2016 05:06:33 +0000 https://news.classiccars.com/?p=33621#comment-4376 I have a 2001 S2000 with a salvage title, due to the theft of seats, radio and a ruined top, followed by the theft of the exhaust system and tires. The insurance company settled with the previous owner, but the parts were replaced. The car was not joy ridden, and all replacement parts are factory original (used in some cases).
That said, the car is simply awesome. It’s light, lithe, strong, revs to the moon, and accelerates like hell above about 6000 rpm. I simply love the car. I also have a 2002 Camaro SS which I will be selling so I can buy another S2000. I have owned Corvettes, Camaros, and other sports cars, but the S2000 is my all time favorite. I love my S2000.

There is ~6000 miles on the complete restoration. I’ve been told by the appraiser that it is Barrett Jackson worthy. Only thing is I love it too much and don’t know if I could sell it.

Comment on Ferrari 275 GTB/C alloy racer sold by RK Motors for $10.3 million by Jim Kaminskihttps://news.classiccars.com/ferrari-275-gtbc-alloy-racer-sold-rk-motors-10-3-million/#comment-4369 Wed, 21 Sep 2016 02:17:37 +0000 https://news.classiccars.com/?p=86007#comment-4369 Obviously “Spirit” does not know the world of Ferrari pricing, and probably hasn’t been to a vintage racing event. Maybe thats why “Spirit” hides behind a fake name?? When I saw the $10.3 mil price, I first thought the price was low. In the past year I have seen “on track” a $27,000,000 275 GTB Nart Spyder and at least six or seven 250 GTO’s at $45,000,000+ dicing hard on the track at Laguna Seca & Moroso. They don’t cost their market price to repair a major shunt, just a simple figure probably well under $500,000 at most. Most comp cars have had damages before when they were active in their early years! JIM KAMINSKI

Comment on Ferrari 275 GTB/C alloy racer sold by RK Motors for $10.3 million by Michael Stoopshttps://news.classiccars.com/ferrari-275-gtbc-alloy-racer-sold-rk-motors-10-3-million/#comment-4367 Tue, 20 Sep 2016 23:35:43 +0000 https://news.classiccars.com/?p=86007#comment-4367 Spirit, you don’t seem to know very much about the high end collector car world: many collectors buy these cars specifically because such vehicles automatically gain them entry into certain unique driving events and grand tours. It is quite common to see 250GTOs being driven hard, very hard, in historic races, and those are worth 5 times the price paid for this car. Old sporting cars such as Ferraris, Jaguars, Alfa Romeos, Siatas, Aston Martins, etc as well as the great grand touring machines like Roll Royces, Duesenbergs, Hispano Suizas, etc are very often used as they were intended. Quite frankly, there is no better way to enjoy these vehicles. And, perhaps surprisingly, participation in these events can often enhance the value of the car, rather than detract from it – which is why this car’s participation in such events is specifically mentioned in this release.

Comment on Poll Results: The Shelby No. 1 sold for $13.75 million at Monterey, do you think cars of such historical significance should be sold at auction or be housed in museums? by Spirithttps://news.classiccars.com/poll-results-shelby-no-1-sold-13-75-million-monterey-think-cars-historical-significance-sold-auction-housed-museums/#comment-4366 Tue, 20 Sep 2016 23:10:31 +0000 https://news.classiccars.com/?p=84601#comment-4366 Ever seen this car? It’s completely original, down to the narrow (correct) tires, ripped upholstery, nicked paint job et al.. I saw it at the SEMA show last,although I also saw it as Shelby’s show car at the New York Auto Show, probably in 1962. We won’t get a vote as to whether or when it (or any of the other really nice cars..) gets “collected” (ugh) or “housed in a museum”. We here in America will just have to get used to a fact: there won’t be a “next generation” of car guys n’ gals because they’ll never see theese cars on the roads, like a lot of us codgers did. Hell, my local college English prof drove a 289 Cobra in 1966. Think you’ll get much of thsat now Unlikely. And that’s why the “car hobby” will die. Too many “collectors”. Too many “museums”. Too few “Hey, did you see that?” moments on the highway…..
By the way,I said “We here in America..” because in Europe and England,people RACE cars liike this, hard. As hard or harder than in period.SOmetimes they get wrecked. So what? Fix ’em! And that’s what they do.

It makes sense that you would want to, especially since some car parts aren’t sold anymore. Even the ones that are sold are pretty expensive!

The glass is all intact, and I see no dents, only a couple dings on the back bumper. The owner would be interested in taking a best as-is offer, buyer come and get it Are there people interested?
