Cool eBay find #159

I do love a fast Ford, and recently I’ve had a hankering for a mk1 Escort, but finished in the right way. This little RS2000 replica popped up on eBay a couple of days ago and as you can see from the bidding I’m not the only one who is a big fan of it. Bidding currently stands at over £20,000 with over 5 days to go. This replica looks like it was built from a nice car too as it doesn’t appear the mounts have been plated as is common with these. The Zetec engine fitted may not be to everyone’s taste but I think its a great choice and looks to suit the car well also. The five speed box and LSD should also provide some entertainment for whoever manages to buy it. I look forward to seeing how much this actually does make in the end though.

Auction Spot #60: 1967 Alfa Romeo 1750 GTV Competizione

Very few cars have the timeless prettiness of the Alfa Romeo 105, and it can be argued that brand specialist Alfaholics have improved upon the aesthetics of this car as well as the mechanicals. Continue reading “Auction Spot #60: 1967 Alfa Romeo 1750 GTV Competizione”

YouTube #11: LS3 V8 Defender

The Land Rover Defender is an icon in the car world, and they can be very effective at the job they were built to do. Sometimes though, people wish they were a bit faster and do something like the owner of this car has and put a big V8 in the place of the 2.2 diesel it came with. Not only does it make an awesome noise but it also looks pretty quick!

Cool eBay Find #156: 1972 Porsche 911 3.0 RS Homage

This super cool modified Porsche 911 3.0 RS homage has been on my watchlist from the moment it was listed, and I even had a little bid on it when it was much, much cheaper. Continue reading “Cool eBay Find #156: 1972 Porsche 911 3.0 RS Homage”

Cool eBay Find #148

A couple of years ago at a H&H auction on the 24th February at Donington Park there was a very modified Hillman Imp that I really loved and bid on but eventually lost out on (though I practically had it at a couple of points which was annoying). This one appears to be in pretty good condition and the description agrees with that, saying that the mechanicals are very solid but there is some tidying that could be done. The car has done very little mileage in recent decades and should be used more, perhaps while being modified at the same time, which would be great fun to my mind. It’s currently bid up to £2000 though the reserve isn’t met, you could create a real little pocket rocket out of this car.

Internet Find #69

The Porsche 944 Turbo is a favourite of mine, and I’ve posted a couple of them on this page. This one is black with a cream interior, which isn’t my favourite of all colour combinations (Guards Red with a black interior in case you were wondering), but it does look good here, even if the front seats do look a little tired.  Continue reading “Internet Find #69”
