This find isn’t a bargain and it isn’t another car you could just drive away after you’ve bought it, and it certainly isn’t a small project. This monster 1941 Cadillac Series 64 Fastback is just waiting to be made beautiful again, and you can see that this once was a truly lovely looking car. Personally I think 1941 brought many beautiful American cars and they drive in a lovely way too. You could either restore this car to stock, hot rod it, or rat rod it, though to me ratrodding this beauty would be a great waste. It’s £12,500 so it isn’t the cheapest American project you can find for sale, but just imagine completing it and driving it around.
I go to a lot of auctions, and I’m not unused to some cars going for extraordinary prices, but today at Anglia Car Auctions was a whole new level. The auction started off with a huge crowd (though not as many cars as usual) but that crowd didn’t last all the way through. Continue reading “Crazy prices at ACA”
The e24 generation 6-series is a fantastic looking car and is only going better as it ages. This one doesn’t look too tidy and it isn’t the cheapest car for sale at £12,500 but it does look to be a low mileage example at just under 75,000 miles, where most are over 100,000.

I haven’t watched a huge amount of ‘Harry’s Garage’ videos but I do like his presenting style, and will certainly be watching more. I love the Jaguar XJS (if you hadn’t already guessed), and this colour has got to be one of my favourites, especially on a Pre HE car, which, to me, just has a real style to it that becomes something different in later cars. This is a great video, and well worth a watch.
A Range Rover has got to be one of the most quintessentially British cars built, and especially in this shape. Continue reading “Internet Find #74”
Chitty Chitty Bang Bang has got to be one of the biggest automotive characters ever, and it was certainly my favourite (or one of) during my childhood. Continue reading “Internet Find #73”
There are a lot of Capris for sale at any time, though few look to be in as nice a condition as this one, and it’s harder to find a square headlight (mk2) model, though I prefer the mk3 myself. I love an X-Pack car, I just think they look so cool, even more so than the standard car. This is a 3.0S model so it’s top of the range too, and harder to find than a 2.8i. It’s currently bid up to £13,400 so it doesn’t look like a bad deal either.
