Comment on Garage-found Mercedes 190SL going to auction in UK by Spirithttps://news.classiccars.com/garage-found-mercedes-190sl-going-auction-uk/#comment-5423 Sat, 24 Jun 2017 05:31:59 +0000 https://news.classiccars.com/?p=107462#comment-5423 This is funny: a laughably-bad car in its day, considered an overpriced Karmann-Ghia, is now a “valued” sports car. This car was the Mazda Miata of its day except it cost as much as a Corvette when new. They’re terrible cars: underpowered, rubbery handling…I wish the new owner the best of luck, but they’d be better off with an MG-A.

He has good taste in car’s and has a nice collection of cars. I hope he keeps the Chevelle that has been in his family. He also has some very good Points when looking for a Classic car.

Comment on Pick of the Day: 1978 Porsche 928 by Fcmhttps://news.classiccars.com/pick-day-1978-porsche-928/#comment-5417 Fri, 23 Jun 2017 02:19:26 +0000 https://news.classiccars.com/?p=105707#comment-5417 My ’85 928 S has the 32 valve engine and keeps up with the 2015 Cayman S in town. Nothing really compares to the acceleration, high speed stability, comfort, cornering, road handling, continent eating speed, or balance of the 928. Aluminum body and engine, transaxle, leather awesome Porschhe V8 sound. The greatest GT car of the millennium.

Comment on Pick of the Day: 1965 Studebaker Commander Wagonaire by Lynn McAteehttps://news.classiccars.com/pick-day-1965-studebaker-commander-wagonaire/#comment-5415 Thu, 22 Jun 2017 23:53:35 +0000 https://news.classiccars.com/?p=92352#comment-5415 A couple of things about the Studebakes. First, the 259/289 engines were discontinued in 1964, at which time assembly was moved to Hamilton Ontario Canada. I bought my 66 Wagonaire on March the 8th, 1966, the day that Stude ceased building any automotive vehicles. In 66 there were only 540 wagons built for US sales, and about 200 were sold as “Knockdowns”, most going to Australia and sold with righthand drive. 1965/66 cars were equipped with GM McKission 283 industrial small block V8 engines which are about 80 lbs hevier than the standard block, The 6cyl engines used the GM 230 and 235 OHV industrial engines. Something that is not well known is that a very small number of 66 Wagonairs were built with solid or non sliding roofs because of leakage problems with the 1963 thru 1966 wagons.
The price quoted for this 65 is pretty far above what Blue Book and other collector price guides quote for the 63-66 wagons. #1 condition, (as new) is between 13-14 thousand, That would be totally restored.
Good luck on your sale.

Comment on What to do about the General Lee? by Dawson McCarthyhttps://news.classiccars.com/general-lee/#comment-5410 Tue, 20 Jun 2017 16:53:55 +0000 https://news.classiccars.com/?p=41350#comment-5410 The car does not resemble racism, or anything of the sort. The car was meant to show people to take pride in their upbringings. For those of you who want to remove the flag are purely idiotical, in the sense that you want to wipe a piece of history out of the books. That flag represents a huge step in our struggle of coming together as a country. I live in Wisconsin, and am very much against racism, but for those of you who don’t remember. Slavery was legal at the time of the Civil War. The Emancipation Proclamation did not free the slaves in the Northern states at the time, but only the slaves liberated in the South. Just a little history lesson for ya from a 16 year old.

Comment on Pick of the Week: 1958 Chevrolet Impala hardtop by Lawrence T Trautmanhttps://news.classiccars.com/pick-week-1958-chevrolet-impala-hardtop/#comment-5404 Mon, 19 Jun 2017 23:37:39 +0000 https://news.classiccars.com/?p=38390#comment-5404 I had two black ’58 Impalas, both with black, turquoise and grey interior, so that should tell you something. The (ex)-wife wrecked the first one, and I had to sell the second in Virginia in 1989 for financial reasons. Now I have the money, and wish I had kept it. I saved my 1979 Trans Am instead. :-(
