Yes, but it has wire wheels:D

 

Still think this is the ugliest lambo ever though.

Here's a historic racer for you... tongue.gif
http://www.auctionsamerica.com/events/feature-lots.cfm?SaleCode=FL14&ID=r0393&Order=runorder&feature=&collection=&grouping=&category=Cars

There's a surprising number of interesting cars in that list, including *3* Amphicars? A 365 GTB/4, a Bora, '48 Allard, a gorgeous XK140MC, Plymouth Superbird, the Devin, etc...

The Lambo SUV is ugly for a Lambo, but not that bad as an SUV. The Espada has NO redeeming values, except a beautiful engine... tongue.gif

4 seats and Naca ducts. Come on, for an estate car it's in a class of it's own.

 

That SUV has so many conflicting angles it looks like it's bent when you see one in the metal.

That A-H worth $58k, you think? Bidding stalled at 52k and that's the least they'll take. My lovely bidding assistant says "Yes!", but she's only 2. wink.gif

Sorry - I have no idea what it is worth - I just think they're purty..

The Espada definitely wasn't a looker near the end of its run, but I think some of the metal-bumper cars in a better color aren't too terrible.

 

 

I saw one in the swap meet section of Iola a few years back for $20K. Somebody was hitting that crack pipe far too hard if they thought their bucket of Italian rust would fetch that anywhere but RM.

I was only playing around, Emma is my bid-clicker and she gets really excited (I have to keep the bid window minimized or she'd be clicking, and bidding, on everything). biggrin.gif That was an excellent value on the A-H, so I had to bite on it, especially since it's already been modernized, which saves a lot of hassle. We can always paint it BRG later, if I want.

She won the Devin too, I'm really excited about that. It's been on my list for a while but I haven't been able to find one for sale at anything close to a sane price, they're kind of all over the place, values varying a lot based on racing histories and powertrains.

Batmobile, bought. haha

For 38k, why not? The 4-spd Muncie on the floor cinched it. There's at least $80k in work resto-modding it, and yet another case of someone lavishing much more love (and money) on a car than it will ever be worth.

Dear god, my mother had one of those way back in the day:D

 

Congrats on the Devin. That will be a wicked summer drive.

 

Confused on the Healey, did you or did you not win it?

 

While I'm thinking of it. Have you ever run across an Alfa Junior Zagato in your travels? Curious as to what they are fetching thesedays.

I really don't like what they did to the front or rear of that Impala at all. An original '59 looks much better. Flip it!

Yeah, I got the Healey the price was too good to pass up.

Sure do, I have a `73 1600 Jr Ziggy. They're not too to locate..





Yeah... I got another Cooper S, don't judge me. redface.gif At 10k it was a steal.

Noo! I've already decided we're going to convert it to an actual Batmobile rear. It'll look great.
