Hammertime Updates

We’ve got a few more additions to the Hammertime resource guide this week. A few are question marks – there was a surprising $10,000 sale of the 1988 Audi 90 quattro, for example, but it remains to be seen if that car will reappear if the bid was a fake. Also listed as sold but were re-listed shortly after the end of the auction were the super low mile Euro-spec ’91 M5 at $35,000 and the 1996 Volkswagen Passat TDi that reached $4,600. We’ll keep an eye out to see if these cars actually sell the second time around, as the M5 has been listed with a Buy It Now for just under what the bidding reached.

There were some other surprises, though. The ’89 944 Turbo sold for just over $12,000 in spite of the 283,000 miles, and on the other end of the spectrum I was really shocked to see the ’78 Dasher Wagon reach $5,600. That’s really strong money for a B1, which typically are ignored by the entire market. Also drawing solid money were the S54 M Coupe and ’89 560SEC, while someone thought the 5-speed E32 was worth $1,200. As always, the listings are hyperlinked to our articles.

Cash for Clunkers Weekend Reading

You may remember my “spirited” post over the Cash for Clunkers program a little while back.

Well as a follow up here is the official government list of  cars sent to their deaths through the program.

Of note are the 63 BMW 6 series cars, including 13 635csi models, a 850i, a M3, and a M5.

Mercedes suffered as well, can you imagine over 100 560SEC s crushed? That is literally tons of usable parts from one of the greatest Benz engines gone. Looks like 11 Merc V12 engines also have made their last trip. No wonder parts are so expensive. A pair of AMG cars, a C36 and a C43, were sent away too and gasp a 500E.

A number of high end Audi models also are on the list and a sprinkling of Porsches.

Most surprising, though not German, on the list is the 1997 Bentley (listed as a Rolls Royce) Continental R and great oogley moogley a Buick GNX, listed under ASC. If that was a true GNX it could have been rolled and burned and still probably brought more than the CFC allowance.

Post your thoughts or interesting finds after you peruse the list.
