August 21, 2019 52 By Luis Garrison


hey welcome to after/drive live from
classic car club Manhattan we’ve been wanting to do this in front of a real
audience for a really long time we’re doing the $200,000 challenge with bring
a trailer actually here to bring a trailer challenge Mike and Zach and
classic car club we’re coming back after the thing stay with us after drive live
classic car club Manhattan that’s all you need to know hey welcome to Classic Car Club
Manhattan for our very very first after/drive live since we’ve been doing
the show we’ve always wanted to do one where we didn’t have a net and we could
fail and it would still be kind of fun so that’s what we’re doing today at
classic car club Manhattan Zach Mosley Michael Britten Ella from classic car
club Manhattan returning champions on the show you know it’s going to be
amazing we’re doing the $200,000 bring a trailer
challenge but the twist today is that we actually have bring a trailer in the
house Randy Randy Nonnberg from bring a trailer is with us today so yes applause you failed to mention not only live
broadcast but live audience we threw two things we’ve never done before into one
show right all right you also said that there’s no net and we might mess it up
but we’ve messed up all of them we’ve already and this is amazing yes we have
an audience we have a lot of amazing cars here today the the m3 Club is yeah
the e30 name by the way if we’re looking for audience participation there’s this
ether tm3 meetup group that doesn’t really have a name so give them a name
given the name we keep calling them ridiculous things well if you love ether
TM 3s they’re like a bunch of them here today and a lot of cars that were
purchased on bring a trailer a site that I’m gonna say I have wasted more work
hours on bring a trailer then I then whiskey and cigarettes combined I mean
really like seriously and Randy’s here Randy I’m serious I what’s the backstory
the origin story of bring a trailer yeah we turned bring a trailer on online in
2007 so it’s over ten years old and it started kind of slow it was just a blog
with finding interesting old cars there was me and my habit of finding things
for sale online that I couldn’t afford or couldn’t buy or you know there’s too
many out there so and there’s so many bad ones but we would find the cream of
the crop and list them on be 80 and send them out to you guys and many
many other on the daily BT email and that sort of
snowballed in 2008-2009 and then people said hey can I list my car on bring a
trailer and at that point we’re like oh that’s interesting maybe this can be
sort of its own marketplace so we still talked about cars listed
elsewhere but we started to let people this special cars like all the ones that
are here today in classic car club and that really ballooned and we had so many
of them but we also had a really rabid audience that wanted to comment on them
and talk about them and taught us a lot about how to you know share information
about these cars online in more than just a two-line Craigslist ad or
whatever right it’s much more thorough than that so a byproduct that came from
the really big audience that we grew was many people wanted each car and so
naturally a bidding model was the way to go for that so we launched bring a
trailer auctions in 2014 yes you did you saw that you know but you guys saw that
I am but yeah we bought a few cars on yeah yeah everybody here and many people
not Ian he’s gotten older we’ve all just gotten poor oh it’s amazing is I weird
are we talking about this before um you would never I think it’s because of you
guys like I think people would have bought cars or brought them in after the
25 year rule but I mean behind us is a an Alfa Romeos Zagato
with the SZ you know over the back there there’s another Lancia there there are
integrals everywhere there are all kinds of cars that are that came off 25 year
hiatus or whatever the the us rule went on to bring a trailer sold and now we’re
being driven and enjoyed and here they are so there’s a lot of right-hand drive
cars around America now yeah JDM cars you know stuff from Europe in the UK
that’s coming in but we brought a lot of exposure to that sort of thing we’re not
alone I mean that that’s kind of a movement in and of itself you had any
naghralla earlier I have an integral like we like
those cars is kind of a fliction but there’s a lot of what you see on b80 is
just really unusual and interesting and special cars and that’s what we’ve
always tried to curate it to include and it’s working really well for that yeah
and I think the amazing thing about it the community behind it and that you
know all the comments instead of being hidden behind you know emails on eBay or
whatever they’re out there in the public everyone’s kind of sharing their
knowledge so that when you buy a car you know exactly what you’re getting I’ve
had all the experts in the world are dialed in to tell you exactly what we
got for that car yeah and and the and the bidding the bidding is open to so
you really really get this participation it’s like nothing else
yeah it’s that the community is great and of course like the communities there
because all of us obsess over this stuff every single day and that’s why we
started this stupid show because we would just I mean we would do this
anyway so I’m trading with the camera yet but kind of our drinking game became
a show we hear that a lot exactly and and the thing that we we’ve
done a lot is that is the bring a trailer challenge and today it’s the two
hundred thousand dollar bring a trailer challenge Zach what are today’s rules
right so bring a trailer challenge again the
basic idea is pick a number we picked a nice round one today but
it’s usually something like one hundred and thirty seven thousand dollars
there’s some some random number and with that you have to sort out all of your
automotive proclivities so write whatever your life involves you have to
have a car does everything you want to do with a car so two hundred thousand
dollars it has to be cars that have actually sold and bring a trailer so it
was bit and not sold doesn’t count you can’t use that one right we want real
numbers yeah so yeah and for this one we did cars sold in the last three months
yeah three months so back to September 8th it really killed me because there
was a boat that I wanted there’s cars last year anyway I was looking through
it and like it has a lot of colors a lot of cars you guys sold him yeah it’s I
mean it took just an hour just hours with my computer with like the spinning
wheel going last night and I got up this morning it’s still going ice I blew it
up with tabs on my browser alright who’s going first it’s Mike cuz we a bike
always goes for I go first alright so again I gotta say that like
200,000 was it was a good healthy number which gave it a lot of choices it made
it really hard usually like those constrained one
$16,000 and I think I’m better on those I originally had a I had an account I
had like 17 cars I picked up like I do wanky dumb things you know and I thought
no no no I’m actually gonna like pick a fleet that is a reasonable fleet for me
to own and try to take care of all of my driving riding requirements yes so so
we’re starting with something that’s not a car that’s well it’s yellow said the
rule should be vehicles vehicles yeah yeah you filled a tank we’ve sold an
airplane we motorcycle I didn’t know what you guys are gonna go there I stuck
to cars oh you don’t have to stick the card I
did so much math to try to make one purchase work but it didn’t but you had
like a tunnel boat racer in okay like we’re right on the Hudson River which I
thought would be a pretty rad commute my kidney belt on mr. Rosso engine put me
six grand over it’s not in the list yeah but but something cool is yeah and
that’s this right so I am a motorcycle rider I had that find one and I thought
I was like oh okay I’m gonna have to take like a classic bike or something
like that but I found a Holley treichel or a smiie right so it’s
actually a really great motorcycle it was cool that was on definitely you
definitely Rock Massapequa that this was a 15,750 pretty pricey but it’s a great
street bike I also like to ride on track so I kind of got both of those things
done in what we it’s pricey but it shows the genius and motorcycles because you
know we have two hundred thousand dollars buy the cars sword I wanted this
challenge and that thing is like the Ferrari laferrari of like motorcycles
and it’s 15 grand yeah you know it’s really amazing beautiful real good piece
of kit yeah so that one that one worked out well for me that was like my face
you know tricloid yeah yeah this is another testament to bring a trailer is
like some of the shots are so good they could be like art shots and a lot of
them is there they’re mostly from the people selling the the vehicle right
yeah we really help people with pro photography and that sort of you can do
is you can see it was baby to has taken care of yeah
I think I got a good one here look at that I mean it’s like brand-new yeah
look I’m like my trash bites on a Orleans dueling shot yawns yeah oh so
that’ll get me around town and will let me split through traffic Oh we’re live
so that handles a lot of my track work that okay weekend rides I got the two
wheels thing covered all in one vehicle so I was great about that all right
so number two the next thing I needed okay Dave Tina right so I need a good
sports car all right good quality sports car that I
could have for a while that I’ll be happy with because this is it right like
right you get to pick your fleet and that’s it there was always a five nine
nine on there there’s like a lot of things but I doubt the math and then I
found that one so jt4 classically great Porsche yeah
sort of all around her it’s kind of like a mini itty bitty supercar you could
drive every single day safety three suspension underneath 84 had the the
Carrera motor right so it was like they took the I mean they did exactly what we
had been waiting that for them to do right with the Cayman for years and
years and years exactly I mean and to and that is to do I mean sort of an
equivalent to a gt3 but but obviously different and and I really like cars
like this we have one it’s like Zach always says if the place goes on fire
that’s the car he’s actually gonna drive out of here with right you know I’m not
the sort of guy who needs a thousand horsepower I don’t need huge number it’s
not that that doesn’t have a lot of horsepower but I just think of it as a
really beautifully balanced car that you could drive quite sweetly and you could
grow into it and like I said you can drive it to work every day it’s it’s not
it doesn’t come with all the complications
well they of a supercar but it has supercar performance and the great thing
is it you know we have a lot of serious equipment around here and liked gt3
generally I would say it’s the best Road car I’ve ever driven but I’ve only been
all experience a full character of it for milliseconds at a time because it’s
so capable we don’t have the roads to drive it on those cannons are just a bit
more accessible still really fast but you know a car you can really dip into
and probably we say like you know you you learn the characteristic of a car
when you sort of get near its envelope and this is a car that in the right
location in the right setting you can maybe start to approach it it’s
yeah the envelopes oh hey we haven’t gone over dollars how much money be
spent so far so this so I’m doing this off of memory so I’m alright I actually
didn’t even draw my money I think tabulate yeah this is let’s say
good so you’re in the high 70s or 80s it was 84 grand okay there was there were
some cheaper ones yeah let this one yeah if you go into be 80 and you type gt4 I
mean it’s actually being a model that’s been a surprise for us because a lot of
people think oh the BT auction model is for sixties cars or 70s cars or whatever
but special editions limited editions enthusiasts stuff even up into present
day like very new stuff it works really well and this guy found a buyer and and
this transaction went well and it’s a cool car to have on BT I think well you
have a combination of like great classics modern stuff in driver cars
that’s sort of like the trifecta of of what we’re really into yeah it made it
really hard Ike I said I had thousands of tabs open but but this is a good one
this is I think eighty four thousand something I was spending just shy of two
hundred grand I think I’d like to hike 15 this is eighty five seven four seven
five hundred grand so yep so then I had to fill in the rest here okay that’s
right let’s see waving what’s next oh wait a
minute interior shots and then oh of course
a daily driver nosh yeah I you know I always first of all this car was I think
17 thousand years low miles that’s a lot of car for that amount of money right
how could you go wrong it looks like it was in really good condition good you
did you go out TJ Dixon or hi Nicole we’re cool
but you know it for me like they don’t really ever age just bit of a timeless
car just looks nice I thought you know me and the Misses will go to dinner we
go to Blue Hill we’ll look correct right you go there gorgeous I mean you know
I’ve never had to get any work done on one I’ve never worked on one I don’t
know anything about it but I know that it’s not you know one
thing we’ve never actually come to terms with in this game yeah is post sale
price we’ve never done that we’ve never come to that in real life
yeah right yeah that’s true this is the visit when we do this show is like oh
you can’t meet in real life we do this there’s a 95 17,500 miles
that’s a eighty nine eighty thousand miles yeah it’s a baby even if you just
like get rid of it when it breaks down you feel good all right good horsepower
than 17,000 miles you could drive it and just talk about ghost ride it was all
over look at the size of that turbo too like that this is um
its massive 6.75 I mean it’s English built so they’re always very pretty yeah
this is dr. Ryan what is it the red where they call the red label it’s the
red label red label yeah so it’s my daily driver but I also have a Cayman
which is also a daily driver so I’m doubled up I’m good okay don’t
work got the next let’s go Oh interior of course look at that yeah
gorgeous weathered British interior a little bit of cracking going on yeah
there was some cracking again it’s everything yeah a little crack it’s okay
this is a crack and that’s patina Tina I could not properly represent Classic
Car Club if I didn’t have a good solid classic of course I did it you know I
wanted to just I want to have something Italian
so Fulvia really beautiful I think this one was $30,000 I think I jumped on this
one but you know it’s forties got a cage in it it’s really simple stripped down
so a real analogue classic Italian maybe he knows this why haven’t these traded
or gone for as much as alpha didn’t do it on the show yet that’s a good
question this was a really good one most that you see out there brought in from
overseas and they’re a little scruffy and they haven’t really been gone
through there there aren’t very many in this sort of middle range with this one
that already we have what this sold this one went for thirty two thousand eight
45 right so that you couldn’t get a GTV for that you need a fairly nice GTV for
that but but this is different well that’s about on the highest end of
that I’ve seen on these I mean I’m pipes what I kept not find a worm for the
price that I remember because I remember these just always being in the teens and
yeah yeah like 30 35 40 plus yeah well for a good if you look at the detail
shots of this one I mean it’s go through this one you know all the cars realize
it’s all very widely dialed yes it seems to know the back story like I just
pulled this up I remember on well this one we talked about in the off in our
office we like a Karl go live anybody’s like or somebody’ll be writing it up and
Beezus to say like hey get a load of this is a special this one was one of
those that’s a good one it’s a good pick so that this car was in socal belong to
the right guy good spec and it got the bids as a
result right not at 15 K car so this is my classic car you know okay the one
that’ll sit in the garage I’ll alright with a diaper drive it on
Sunday so look the good interior I mean it’s nothing I almost almost put that
one on my list I thought this was gonna I thought I might have a duper this
could ended up here right I mean that car was here you guys would be psyched
right yeah I was just done with care whoever did it had really good taste
yeah that’s good aesthetic you know are you ready bird and I didn’t even want to
have like a Porsche I love Porsches but I but so even the GT for me was like
alright I have to kind of do this but it went to build 911 or anything so I
already complete with that one okay now there’s it all right front wheel drive
by the way remember her right before the front wheel nice nice and then there it
is racing Hey okay so I need this because I need thing I need a good truck
I need a truck to pull things on it I spent a lot of times at racetracks on
bikes and cars and stuff this was a challenge to me because
bring a trailer doesn’t have a lot of just brainy pickup trucks is what you
need obviously that’s not the thing right so I wanted to find something a
bit of torque a bit of poke put together well I don’t remember I spent on it it
wasn’t a lot it wasn’t a little he grabbed that maybe one hand something
like that but very agra procedural india and so you know i think that would do
the job and also again kind of like another daily driver right I have all
the English dependable cars did you notice have you had one of those before
we have 90 and give it under 90 and I drove they are like driving its
agricultural truck like right also I didn’t have a I didn’t have like one of
my Japanese right-hand drivers in here I had it’s like a thing for me this was
twenty four thousand five hundred yeah it’s the diesel though right yeah the
TDI nervous yeah it’s at you know it’s post 25 year with who honestly I mean I
love these but they’re not great to drive they’re just really not yeah but
remember it’s just to get me to a racetrack yeah I need to pull a trailer
there I mean I like I know what you’re gonna get I’m gonna get nasty that’s not
a fender fair there are agricultural trucks yeah right you know when you when
you’re driving arse around town you know you’re like it’s like driving a truck
but you do know like the minute you go off-road like it’s an atonement it’s at
least an SUV or a an off-road vehicle that’ll do that job really well so right
right right um okay so let’s keep moving is we’re gonna have to get through
alright there’s your TDI engine engine engine engine and rebel look at that and
oh wait alright I’m gonna stop doing it it’s the Chanel Oh Spinelli is exactly
right so this is my radical okay needed a good track our radicals are great I’ve
actually I’ve actually never had the privilege privilege of driving a radical
around racetrack oh yeah Phil who started the car club in London raced
them for 10 years in the European circuit okay and five times a week
he says radical and I’ve been out on track of them they look great fun and
important and they’ve been around for a bit so they’re getting exceptionally
well priced this was like eighteen or twenty thousand I think this one was
twenty three thousand dollars there twenty three
and no three partners 21,000 and three hours yeah yeah so what was it wait a
minute have it’s a whole lot like can you really been to the $3.00 you can bid
whatever dollar value you want so somebody you hate a bit of certain
increment over the last bid but if you want to end it in 999 that you can’t do
since you can’t do in a quarter so much you can do looking out under 21 and they
were doing the victory and someone came in so small easy not very heavy I could
pull it in my defender 110 in a trailer and get a good set up and you know also
bitchin track car pitch and risk so you roll in with the defender 110 pulling
this thing all right I mean I went on style actually drive it I went on style
points yeah totally all right there there was a cheaper one that was all
glammed up but I could put my classic car club be 80 and drive graphics all
over it are you already done paint it so I paid 3 grand sign up to play look at
that that’s that looks like my office I thanks fun yeah all right let’s let’s
move through this because we’re cuz you know you still have more know you have
more I’ve more I think I have you have look at all that I started with like 17
I had to like I just swing it right down all right wait a minute what else do you
have safety the real deal where’s your other thing that you have how much did I
spend there that seems like 200 I think I spent a hundred and ninety six
thousand and whatever three you had like a three thousand bucks left and that
will go on account that’s for the baby that’s really the first tenth of the
first service of the band first sparkplug I need to read there you go
yes black Don and surprisingly sensible you’re usually kind of the rails is some
really weird yes I know well this is what I’m stuck with it’s against real
life are you I usually rely on you guys go and so far off the rails that come in
yeah oh yeah that makes sense I wanted them stock with them for life I
wanted them to all be timeless so yeah all right who’s Zack you going second
sure let’s do it so so yeah give us the
backstory Oh automotive prakruti is I’ve got three young kids so I need something
to haul them around I don’t want a SUV so I always get these wagons there’s
always gonna be a wagon in the mix yeah we want a track car usually I go the
route of a track car I could drive to the track right a lot of modern sports
car my heart’s in the classics we gotta have a classic and then whatever else
fills in the gap so so first choice first choice oh wow yeah what are the
odds probably a bit obvious you know and I have on a pretty broad range of the
hot wagons and I will say that this one even though it’s now 14 15 years old is
no Sarah’s feeling 7 so it’s a yes 11 years old 11 years still my favorite
what he paid for that 55 or 6363 so naturally aspirated 6.3 liter motor you
know we I’ve driven all I’m currently driving a 5 Series to ensure Bo wagon
and amazingly I think I got better mileage and that thing when I had it I’m
not doing the 5 Series because we turbos are really just there to burn more fuel
and when you know when you’re when you’re cruising of the highway kind of
get away with it but in town it’s just a pig you know 7 seats as well you know so
now I do that I got the burbs on the horizon so I can throw a friend in the
back you know we can do all that cold up the whole foods in this that any gonna
dog yeah and it does you’re out of there it doesn’t you know we’re on the East
Coast I kind of thought I want all-wheel drive but you know what I grew up in
Maine driving the old Volvo it’s the right go tires so I’ll put some snow
tires in this and I’ll be good so yes and and the prices come down in these
recently you know this is there already 31,000 yeah yeah so they’ve been holding
in the 40s for a while yeah I just only discovered browsing through today that
they came down so that’s out a car for them I thought it was a good balance I
mean I had like Volvo wagons on like a v7 er that was like 9 grand
or like newer e63 that were like 50 or 60 and they monsters are perfect that
would be 96 k okay so the odds of a full replacement engine I mean what do you
think 40% yeah maybe I mean I always go on the
I haven’t owned one of these into that kind of miles we have had prior
generations like the natural aspirated 55 right and I like to say like Germans
make pretty strong mechanical is what goes wrong is the myriad of electronics
oh yeah you 55 the window is just started go up and down on their own and
all like a broken car for thousands of miles he’s got good mechanical sympathy
job I was built to get through LeMond in the city you know but but this um wait
wait a minute so this is after they corrected most of those crazy
electronics problems that they hadn’t the generation before that right so this
is so you’re alright see I’ve had a couple of them but I haven’t they have
all been pretty solid good yeah okay all right what do we get a sweet motor I
mean not that motor is this gonna go down in history yeah that’s true
best-sounding German bozo MT motors create such good
torque and power yeah good alright what’s next
Oh interior and tear shots are a little they’re boring inside but whatever oh
wait that’s right yeah we you’re backwards Zach alright ready are you
ready for the next think alike and we just know what we’re doing Randy that’s
left out everybody’s I mean so so like mike has said you know if we ever sell
our GT for I’ll probably want to keep it for myself you know because it is it is
a great car but in the in the but the Tudor grand budget taking seven or eight
e out for the big variety of sports cars big bite I had to have a bit more
reliable daily driver and we’ve had a couple came in s his and honestly
they’re really fence it gives it to you know even even 12 years on from when
they launched it there’s still really formula sports cars and you know maybe
exhaustion a little bit of tweaking and you can make them a lot more visceral
they often you know when you sent this over I the color
didn’t didn’t I you know I yeah I saw the color and I was like and then but
then I saw the stripe and I thought it was an r at first and I was like on crap
you got an R for $22,500 it’s not an R but it was twenty two five or you know I
mean yes yeah yeah so for a car that’s you know maybe sixty percent of a GT for
pretty awesome you know yeah mid twenty so now I got my kind of reliable fun go
to sports car to get out and drive around on the back roads and also track
day ready yeah could be about just wait I got something for that alright wait a
minute thinking so since we’re backwards just let me give them okay here we go
get ready picking this one yeah so this was a good GTV yeah so you know my
heart’s in the classic sister this all started I the interior I’ve always said
BMW 2002 ‘s but I’ll admit the G TVs we’ve had and it doesn’t make sense but
they feel sharper and handle better even though they have a live axle and like
it’s a bit more exotic and and really pretty that baritone a design body is
just fantastic I love all the quirks of them like the signal I do you know like
dip cigarette into it yeah the door handles here yeah they’ve got they’ve
got this great character everything you know little things like the cigarette
lighter is like this hole you put the cigarette in and push it and it dings
like a toaster when it’s done like just just quirky Italian stuff you know and I
love this color – um you know we kind of nonmetallic sand or whatever it is
what’s it do you know what this color is called I don’t
it may be listed in the if you are on there but on bring a trailer it’s this
one with these alcoholics wheels and this color scheme is just yeah we’ve
actually got a couple of them here today that people brought in so really really
fantastic but it’s nice because it’s like such a classic little coupe but
it’s also a great sports car just yeah and exciting car to drive and I do love
the kind of 2+2 I got young kids yeah they like to hump pop in the car with me
too so look at that shot that’s so dirty somewhere dirty even
okay yeah don’t do them pretty well so far okay how many did you get total do
you know Oh like a hero shot maybe more so yeah three more all right so ready
another hero shot and I think yeah all right now we’re going you know what yeah
because I got interested there’s a good show right it what do you think this is
yeah yeah good with this well first off is that engine in the
passenger compartment or is it right into the car I have to be okay wait a
minute looks like it’s in the rear you saw I keep going this is this is what I
had on yeah I did actually bid on this car was a deal I know we bought this car
I thought it was bidding on it and I got pulled into a cop and the phone started
ringing and like said Owen please you do any work we actually have like what’s
the deal with the the turbo to wait a min so so sorry we’re no five turbo to
write a homologation car why are they so cheap now because they were over I mean
I just saw there’s or there’s a good range if you go search RFID this one
this one was exhibit 57 well actually let me let me back this one was
inexpensive as these go we think that the guy got a deal that ended up going
to Europe a guy bought it and shipped it to Europe 57 5 1575 and people some
people are asked the same question they’re like wait that one’s old for 130
and that one so for 57 five what’s going on and there’s there’s actually sort of
a hierarchy there’s a lot of I can totally go deep on this I wasn’t nor
know like there are there are the actual
homologation cars which have an aluminum roof they’re called the a two to one
cars we’ve listed some of those those are the ones that go up to 100 accord
130,000 they had a different engine boost package they have some different
features throughout the car and then there are the standard turbo twos
there’s also a turbo one which is just called the turbo that now people call
the turbo one but this car with some miles and sort of a here in their
history and maybe not the greatest paperwork or whatever a turbo – like
that we actually just listed another one that’s sold in the same range and you
can get them in this 50s and 60s sort of rain but fur but to get one with really
good documentation restored engine or to get an actual homologation aluminum car
those ones go six figures all day yeah and and and you know for my liking and
this is kind of driven by the philosophy here oh you shot this car that looks
like a low carb but Cenac looks like yeah everyday before I get to work I
have you know 100 emails waiting I find my bat list I think you do the same
thing like that’s what I look at like autumn brushing my teeth I’d have first
one and I saw this like we all we have to own it it happens all the time like
every single day that’s like oh this would be cool for us that’d be cool and
they we don’t buy it or whatever and it goes but that will we miss that one like
we weren’t around for the last three minutes yeah that’s not what even like
the rest of the day I was been cooler yeah for my liking like I want to get
out and drive the cars you know sure I want something that’s worth what I’m
paying for it it’s gonna kind of hold this value but that’s not the driving
factor so like what if I can get a car get a bit more car for less money by
having one that doesn’t have a very perfect history I’m just gonna drive it
anyway so I’m pretty happy with that alright what’s next we got guys in the
room right so so of course you know with the e30 guys here today is another good
choice and and and I had to get a track car so this
if we get to you know it’s looking pretty purposeful in there yeah oh it is
purposeful ether dm3 track car we actually have one the fleet that’s
nowhere near there’s a chiller ours was a J stock class car which you know the
weight requirement is high enough that people even leave like leader and
they’re like yeah this this thing is another level this is like you know if
they had a so for DTM now yeah this is what someone built out
of this car and it was also around 30 grand 30 grand which these days after
our you know after drive on ye should buy an e30 and three like you know what
was that well this is five years ago now thirty thousand to fifty so I mean yeah
track car I mean the the track car liability is a little hard dirty lives
yeah yeah but they still these cars are excellent driving the track you know
when we when we first got ours you know we’re doing a lot of open track days
we’re doing more suspect me auto racing now but you go to open track day a Miata
and you’re killing it on the corners but you just get slaughtered on the
straightaways these cars are just quick enough that you can just keep up with
everything and we would we’d try this and and they’re they’re still nice and
balanced and you can really kind of get through the corners like you couldn’t
even something as small as in the auto so that’s gross factor
yeah really fantastic we got it we’re a desert car another here that’s nice
okay here we go ready what’s a couple more yeah and and so so I’m going well
yeah normally I get a track car I can drive to the track but that one
obviously is pretty stripped down so you gotta haul it okay there interesting
yeah alright so I like the little like punch-out labels I know I know this one
yeah oh look at that interior school is that what what’s is that the Laredo
interior what interior is that so it’s like stamped vinyl yeah look at the
alright so we know it’s a Chevy yeah see again honestly I don’t know it
means except I’ve had a couple seat ends we have one now
we always love our classic pickups and you know this is going to be something
that’s pulled out to drive the track car to the track not be driven all the time
happy to have a classic one I didn’t want to spend a lot of money I think
this is like I mean 17 you could daily that out where I live I love yeah
amazing when we were – we have one here a 66 with a Escalade drivetrain in it so
you know LS motor super solid nation yeah these things are pretty good now
probably a bit of a shame to hook a trailer to it but I’ll use my mechanic
great 14 think we’d be so happy to have a trailer connector honestly like I
enter the rail stuff these are these are pretty trucks yeah to leave okay weight
saving alright ready keep it moving keep moving
oh look at that there’s the hero eh alright okay ready what’s right so the
heck so I we haven’t gone through all that massive it but I know I was at 186
thousand dollars okay so we’ll talk about the price for this in a minute and
we’ll figure out economics but I want to have a project car you know I got all
these nice things going up so but I could work on you know so familiar motor
there we get BMW something right okay so what is it it’s ya know the tools no
another Bertoni had an influence on this tuna or is it uh it was um the guy isn’t
that you are oh yeah dude you are alright so anyways another
beautiful 2+2 coupe an automatic but a project you keep coming over here you
know wait a minute wait a minute we’ve never really done project cars Zack Zack
is no but it would sell for them look at this
yeah what’s happening here hey it’s a project yeah I mean hey have you seen my Springs on the dash so let me tell you
my plan okay go ahead and I forget what it oh I said no
exactly to pay for this I’ll tell you in a minute right that’s not name I I have a 68 BMW back
there with a ether tm3 motor and and I’ve always wanted to be one of
these with with a z4 M Coupe Drive okay like really just go at it you know full
tube chassis to get the sub frames from a z4 under just do everything like make
it a z4 with with it with a 3.0 body so you know if you’re gonna do that
yeah actually maybe that’s the thing now make it electric there you’ve got really
a kind of scrappy automatic that was cheap I mean these things can go up into
the 50s or 60s and this was usually yeah this you remember I $186,000 Emilie’s
well you got a dollar at borrow dollar from you I do the dog oh no did you go
over by thanks but one dollar $14,000 one yeah fourteen pass that one so I did
two hundred thousand one dollar so so he Laura’s okay well that’s nice
alright well here we go oh good like a car ooh yeah that’s a problem don’t
worry about it cuz that seems to work and everybody had a gripe about that but
he’s got something that he needs to dump fifty grand
alright is that is that literally your last garment yes good choices man good
choice tasteful very good choice alright
Randy’s up next let’s see Randy where are you no oh here we go here hold on oh
wait don’t do that one first we’re gonna do the new zero okay so with 200 grand I
was thinking you got to go for one big boy
car right yeah I could about 10 20 K cars and I was like that’s kind of my
style but I decided to go for a serious car okay so not the one on the left
right the one on the right so 67 gt500 Shelby Mustang dark blue four-speed like
the one you want it’s really unbelievable with the grille lights and
I mean 67 was kind of the last real Shelby here where he was involved
there’s a lot of story behind it great photographs um
a result that these days you know these ran way up and we’re totally
unattainable when and and pretty crazy and then there’s a K are versions and
different stuff that would have blown the whole 200 k budget but this was 115
I think was it wonder 15 I honestly look at that car I for 150 yeah you thought
that was higher look I thought it was low I thought that’s I mean if you got
this budget and you get that car out of it with a few others I was like wow
that’s a good show I mean those lights on that card
I’m usually a 6566 guy but this will this I can go with right I mean very
cool and dark blue white yeah yeah so the photo game for people on bring a
trailer is pretty high look at these photos right that’s part of the reason
it sold it sold well like do you find that that makes a huge difference
photos make an amazing difference right I mean like that CS coupe that’s sort of
project even if they got that in a little better light and showed it a
little better and did some things that it could have gotten some more action
but people are learning that right I think you’re right well we offer
resources on the site it’s good that you said that and we also a lot of people
just don’t want to do it themselves so now we can refer you guys have resources
right but a lot of people don’t so they’re like hey ba T what do I do and
we can refer them with a local all across the country a local pro
photographer that’ll come in for a few bucks we’ll give them a suite of photos
which a couple hundred bucks that the bidding will outnumber that and make
that worthwhile trade so that’s great that’s something that we offer so anyway
that was the big you know that was the biggest car which I would love to have
in the garage well alright he’s due the next are in the dirt neck are in the
dirt so this car came through pop that up here we go
this outie a few more photos there you go so a new Quattro the legitimate rally
car that rallied in the day with the right people and stuff this came through
our site and I I was still amazed that this came through at the reserve that it
did and then sold this car sold for 60 grand Wow and a good street Quattro as
you guys know is now 30 40 50 grand right finding a real rallied out one
that isn’t just some guys backyard project that is something that actually
there’s pictures if you look through like this start rallying in 85 this
didn’t cry Poland did it this came before this was in the UK
UK and it was rallied in Europe and it was rallied in North America and it I
mean it was it was a very interesting car to go through the site I pressed the
watch button and I watched the whole seven days I I nearly had this one on my
list but right I was weighing that against the real five yeah so
interesting contrast with the American muscle car and then this crazy
you have soldiers 81 is that early yeah 81 representative of a really cool
moment in Motorsports ooh absolutely I mean Quattro you know all-wheel drive
the whole the whole outtie story about how this plays ah yeah and then the fact
that this one actually is part of that story yeah squeeze four-wheel drive I
had the little you know and that bigger than matchbox little bra go when I was a
kid that was exactly this with those lights so it’s kind of my thing
launch adults integral it also has rally licen it yeah and it’s New Yorkers yeah
there’s nothing more satisfying than an uber driver cut you off and you’re just
hitting them it’s good feeling so anyway this is a good one
since I picked the big car first and then this I’m already up to 175 K you’re
pretty quick I like your PIN I kind of win for big big cars that I really
wanted for some state though then I sneak a couple in here and then 25k you
see this car I listen I wanted to fit it in but I’d write the car 15 in it but
get to the get to the lead hero shot a bit no this was a euro-spec GTI that
came into the u.s. what we got sold on b80 what is it early 80 83 and 80 what’s
C I don’t know yeah my baby one of 80 euro more early so early
yeah where my mom at a three rabbits kid so I remember the back of that car like
it’s ingrained in my head yeah it’s just such a simple machine so
the euro is so trim the bumpers are trim it has mellower wheels it has the round
headlights in front the interior fabrics different the US one was cool let’s go
back to this is your fabric this is your assessments are always better this is
what I love I mean honestly we never got a little religion weird Germans no yeah
like that I mean we had the the plaid we never got that you know what else is
that we’re getting now that bring a trail always has my favorite things to
find is the American cars that the American market never got you know
Cosworth escorts yes I know starting to pop up yeah I think what’s really
special about cars like this that aren’t exceptionally valuable but they were
kept in such great condition like you don’t you see that a lot less and you
see expensive kind of color right yeah yeah the money is in there they’re all
beaten down when you take care these are also beaten up and I I love watching for
GTI 50 you $15,000 I mean this kind of lock is not but it is also a really
great one yeah and for that interior to be that nice it’s really kind of a new
selective time capsule five grand left and you have more than that left all
right let’s I’m gonna switch over right you can borrow my four cylinder sort of
fun around town I got the Shelby just awesome and I’ve got the race car which
will kind of uh-huh you didn’t do anything to exact you and I are on the
same way this you got the four-wheel drive I went with the four-wheel-drive
version same long bed same to Tony there you go this road here I shot on that one
in some ways I think this might be the blue with AC this one is another one
that went on the site and I was like why didn’t we grab that oh hey we’re going
so look at that there we go there we go yeah do that a few wheels – yes it’s
good this one was in the Midwest taking
photos in a cornfield but this like you say this is like a private guy that went
out and just parked it in his you know rural setting and took awesome photos
that made me want that truck like that blue white long bed 4×4
and package I’m Cheyenne I am in so those are my four pretty compact but I
got a truck good race car how much muscle car
I went over by like six grand I’m bringing trailer mother October you
brought the closest we’re going for closest you you got it closest but sorry
I had to get this truck we could we go two times I don’t want to get I don’t
want to give it away yeah alright okay alright here we go
put down the rules there always has to be a a long brown car from the late 70s
yeah well okay that’s good this is good alright so here’s here’s I’m gonna start
with something a little different I think now you know normally I give
myself unreasonable rules to follow yeah and so I started out no German cars
and and that was only because I would normally pick like three of them but so
I said that’s it no German cars I got about six minutes in and I went no
that’s not gonna work III tried to do something else I I started I was gonna
do all Ella swapped only LS motors I guess see that would work the problem is
I started spend the money too quick there’s a Wagoneer that sold for like 70
yesterday alright so I I went now alright so this this is a question that
I’ve always pondered and asked other people is that would you drive a car
that you really really really want and really liked and got a great price for
but it was in a color that you didn’t want well I would you still drive it
everybody would it be a car that you would drive it and a lot of people say
no in this case I’m saying yes just because the the first gt3 that we got
right was the 996 – so this is a 996 – gt3 I kind of like the interior with the
yellow stitching at lepage seat belts are it’s got it right I’m not
sure I hope so no I’m not into that 375 horsepower 290
something pounds feet would you pay for it let me find out I
forgot this is this was a no guess cuz you know what it’s a ton of car but the
gt3 is easy yeah but I’m gonna say you got this for
good no no no seriously guess cuz honestly o58 that was aggressive you
can’t you gotta 467 507 a but seriously like stats I mean like a great car but
you know yeah but they got such a beef about the headlights who cares I don’t
care it’s it’s I’m gonna hellish in the driver’s seat
it’s alright matters drivers suit exactly had the true Metzger and and in
these I mean not that any gt3 czar for the faint of heart but these were the
most uncompromising ones like literally you’re picking out your driveway or
without a couple of wheels leaving it round right you know I remember I
remember the first time I saw one I was like the idiot there’s like I wonder how
stiff it is and what to push on it I almost like I’m gonna tender like in
metal versus suspension yeah crazy um they made not from that game that looks
like a more Spinelli car there you know what I’m gonna go to another I’m gonna
be yellow on that you know gt4 I was like that yeah but it was cool
yeah whatever alright second and I’m kind of going out of order just for your
guy’s sake let me see when we say that burned that burns 67 grand so you get
room you get some room what else alright well hey get get ready because I know
I’m a little bit typecast when it comes to 1970s pornographer cars yeah but the
72 Eldorado I did I didn’t have to put in the rules you follow your own rules
no really I don’t know what color green this is I
know you guys look at this look at that look at that 500 cubic inch v8 probably
the largest production of v8 ever made for cars look at that
actually I’ve never noticed that lion on these cars that the curved line which
ones renders really what fender into the door but yeah look at that it’s almost
it’s like they started eat the same volume sure this is well let me see it
steel I mean it’s a straight-up Eldorado is it I don’t think it’s got I don’t
think it’s it’s not a broom it’s not a what’s the other one that they did the
beer it’s yeah version whatever it is pretty I have to say it’s it’s pretty
cool yeah what year is it it’s a 72 72 guess how much all of this
car was all of it oh I mean just bring a trailer and get it out of here look at
that look at all that chrome $12,500 for all the car look at that do you like
ride with your enemies and the shotgun and some of that someone in the backseat
gives you a nice pic it’s a big car the backseat yes this is that car Wow
look at that you know what I love the old Cadillacs with the red light and the
white light on the door like it’s just you know you’re you’re in the back
you’re this is the best Spinelli car you’ve chosen I think I don’t think
there’s a better service right but it’s pretty incredible like you probably paid
$12,000 something to clean a car look like right yeah 550 pounds feet like 290
horsepower at the wheels to the front to the front wheels right exactly in the
car weighs a thousand pounds car weighs yeah eight thousand whatever pounds
exact commands to get Spinelli okay save another one for the end yeah this is the
mock MSV now you got to understand something about the mark that it has
well first of all this particular one has a couple of
accoutrement yeah that are not all of them had is there a polling well wait a
minute Jeep Grand Cherokee their lights look at Hank Jeep Cherokee taillights
let’s see for tech GM GM Vortech 454 powder okay Ford nine-inch rear dihedral
doors yeah yes but wait a minute this particular model also has this so it has
I think it is this the only car to go bring a trailer with a stripper pole I
think it is so I think it is ostrich Wow awesome good normally curate
the hell out so this was a gift thirty-five thousand dollars worth of
whatever this is twelve thousand pounds these things
worse ridiculous two hundred thousand dollars
I mean by the way I will drive anything for fun where you sit in front of the
front wheels there you go that bar much fun to drive like how far forward you
are yeah oh wait a minute like if you want to make a leg to pass the
intersection you’re going and in yes I’m Jack into I think you’re already one I
mean that and the Caddy next to each other on your garage in the garage right
look at the like a door is fully in front of the front front wheel whatever
like your neighbors have guests like who lives next door to you hey straight up
pornography I don’t know if I don’t and I didn’t of course I’m gonna tear out
the interior and the stripper pole will be you know obviously sure it’ll be
turned into a look at hug corrosive how much for but it’s yet kind of disgusted
different kind of gross from the back yeah alright so there’s that what your
is that this is a night wound or what is 97 I do so there’s where okay oh yeah
that’s that was maybe grand checking out my dad suburban ed that’s that’s so I’ve
done 48,000 filthy Al’s alright here we go we’re gonna now
here’s an all right there we going from here going
nowhere but up from here how much money of you how much was that alright so that
was thirty five hundred five grands wait we’re not gonna question thirty-five
grand is so good in Vegas with you oh all right here we go
this is cool so this one I’ve always I’ve always wanted one of these and this
is a first year 1971 Selleck St you know what was very cool Spinelli yeah yeah
you’re right you’re right in my wheelhouse with the 2+2 sport coupe you
know hey you guys did want something you know old and Japanese it’s got that like
it’s like a Japanese Montreal yes right it does it does have a lot of Gandini
kind of mantra of alpha male montreal it has a lot of everything going on like
knockoffs and locks a lot of things are happening you know it’s interesting cuz
because a lot of people say oh they ripped off the court the Mustang
especially with the fastback but I think you’re right there is a little bit of
Italian lawyer you know the same design came from Alfa in the first place yes
right so here we go it’s really cool yeah and look Triple A yes
I mean long with it to be honest like even in my with my bad taste I would get
rid of these spoke wheels but look at that interior it’s cool
you know it looks that looks just like GTV and so that’s cool all right we’d
like to stick up top there yeah that’s cool cool all right this was actually a
little bit high for a Celica was her Celica it was a lot it was all the money
for a silk I think it was 17 grand do you know where this one came from Randy
I had Florida plates on it it’s a US car though I think so I don’t know where the
guy found it but to find one in that shape with the side stripes and all the
stuff but it’s just yeah I mean the stripes I think it had been restored a
really cool different classic car 19200 $50 so this was a little bit unusual in
that shape right yeah bid it up I got 71 you’re pretty splashy good fake
money you know that’s me all right so let’s go
go stealth again the Caddy the Mach and all right well this is some money for
more garage that’s good so a custom 30 foot garage bait is to put happy alright
I’m gonna go out of order because the let I want to end on on a car anymore
how many more just two more alright so here we go this is this is an obvious
one this is one where like this yeah I mean let’s face it like this is one of
those cars that we’ve always coveted that Europe got that we never got that
everyone all the you know European automotive journalists right talk about
as if it were you know the the best thing they’ve ever driven yeah it’s the
yeah yeah exactly is that like the Williams addition or set there no this
is this is a those are blue go blue if I have GT I think it’s a 1.9 no this is
the 1.9 so they came in a 1.6 in a 1.9 and the big argument with UK journalist
is the higher revving 1.6 better as the the longer stroke 1.9 better this is I
think better it’s a hundred and thirty horsepower compared to you know what is
it 115 I think we’re the 1.6 I love driving cars like that
I don’t not a lot of power short little wheel bases you can really many are
really fun you know this has that like the legend of this car in in Europe is
is giant and we’ve never is this like outside of our our world I think if we
got these in the US that people would not talk about GTI’s as much as they did
we got all the GTI run from Volkswagen but pujo never gave us these and in
Europe they talk about him right alongside I guess 16-valve GTI versus
this was like a one to one comparison these then had rally heritage and they
had even more going on so I love these and these are starting to come in the
25-year rule yeah these are coming around this one was actually from Canada
but you can bring it into the US yeah and it looks cool it looks well cared
for it’s got those pepper pop wheels look at they they broke out the armor oh
yeah it was a little armor all and the hearts been armored all
to hell him back but look at that yeah yeah like that’s cool
so what you weigh when you’re would this be was the 1990 1998 but look those
early 90 dashboards yeah very square and well 1990 is still three years away from
the 90s right so it’s like the nineties don’t really start to yeah this is still
like look at the car from the 80s but in the nineties updated for the 90s all
right okay one more stealth mode all right now
you’ve got that what’s that how much oh that was yeah that’s another one crap I
should have had this if that one is let me just how much did you spend overall
do you think that one was like 14 grand 100 and and 99 and like yeah this was
$14,000 which I think was all the money from one of these for one of the 205 now
I’m gonna do something that I think you guys might vomit last one I mean I think
vomit over I think if you feel like if you feel sick or lightheaded please you
might want to leave the room alright let’s do it it’s the most look consume
you can you pronounce it though games I don’t know how it’s okay it’s not
actually fuck enough votes you’ll agree it’s the so okay so this is a car that I
was gonna do true two truths and a lie the first the first fact is that it was
designed by an economist who just happens to be the world’s foremost
proponent of post-keynesian monetary policy the second fact is that it’s got
the same motor as the Shelby glhs okay as you know the the sort of the hot
hatchback that goes Omni right exactly Dominique sort of breathed on and
and made cool by Shelby how big is that engine 2.2 liters that could be a lie or
it could be the truth no the last thing is it actually out accelerated in its
day out accelerated the Porsche 959 Wow which one of those three things is the
lie the last one the last one it was all right so this yeah I was going to
believe a GT you concerning DCP gtp sorry seems like I should have one Shiro
I get the Mosley wait we’re actually really fast though right that was the
big deal yes around a road course yeah there it is it’s a water Mosler so
water motion not or actually let’s get to the really disgusting shot so how
much was it it was I believe it was fifty thousand dollars even you spend
the most money on I mean it looks like so many cool things but it doesn’t look
like any of those cool look at the door hey what is that it sort of looks like a
very key it’s like the pinewood derby car I made and lost yeah so here’s the
thing it was designed and literally worn Mosler wanted to start a car company he
was a hedge fund manager an economist a brilliant brilliant mind in the
economics world post-keynesian I mean honestly when it comes to post-keynesian
monetary policy I don’t know dick of the hop when it comes to car design he
didn’t know much this is the this is the thing I he designed it does it have a
back seat it does not have a back thing so but he’s really changing there you’d
like the windows one of one of those taillights off of we we no
honest tournament Oh gross see the center exit exhaust dolly an arrow shot
yeah is it it is he Russian nor Lee the body is made out of carbon Kevlar oh
really yes okay I thought he really liked it
was really a car that let me let me see if we have any more facts where corners
just go around corners now he offered a bounty of $25,000 saying that he could
beat any almost to anything around a racetrack so Car and Driver took him up
on it when driving with I don’t think him driver but I think somebody else
driving and so they brought out rubber Chetta from from car driver which is I
think sort of how you pronounce his name they they went out and they beat him the
Corvette beat him around the track did I think I trap he paid off the $25,000 but
what’s the top speed of something like that top speed was actually a hundred
and I think was a 155 miles an hour’s pretty fast
let’s see yeah I wanted one of these or this you just trip by it or what’s the
story so the thing is like I’m not yes it’s not like I’ve always wanted one
I’ve never had this on my wall was never like something I really wanted but I saw
it and it’s like one of those things we’re like it it gets it’s a little hook
in your head I’ve always wanted to see what this was like to drive what and and
fifty thousand dollars in our fake $200,000 universe just seemed like the
small price to pay to the body may be able to drive one this thing which has
been my dream for 25 years was that of a Pontiac Aztek funny way you look at you
get details and you can find equally horrible ones and equally like nursing
ones like like the like the aerodynamics that cut into the back and go through
the big open grille yeah like it’s got like a little bit of 2017 Ford GT in it
right and a bit of like Grand Cherokee like
it’s a yeah or ad-seg is probably but it was designed on a spreadsheet yeah by an
economist dis sign designed on a spreadsheet by an economist yeah um and
that’s it so who wins by the way we I was good I was over so I think I know
you guys all cheated I didn’t cheat you didn’t cheat I didn’t really keep cheese
even one dollar he’s we’re very like responsible for the
flop well I think we have to leave it to the audience yes that’s the most
important thing is that everybody else has to go and we did it from September
9th to just today the 9th yeah so go in there pick yours 200 grand
