Hammertime Updates

It is an interesting update to our Hammertime value guide this week with a mixed bag of results. On the low end relative to its condition was the stunning all-green 1979 Porsche 928, while a few 911s stuck to the middle ground. Trading hands too were two well bought big BMWs, but the two Audis struck fairly high numbers – especially the 1980 Diesel which had run up in price substantially and traded for what I believe it a high water mark for some time at $9,000.

Hammertime Updates

We have quite a lineup of heavy hitters for this edition of Hammertime Updates. There was the mighty Alpina B10 BiTurbo, which once again sold for a reported $55,000. A great 1971 280SL Rob wrote up hit close to $70,000, while the rally-bred Quattro cleared $40,000. Twin 80s 911 Targas (a Targa and a one-year-only SC Targa) hit $41,000 and $47,500 respectively. Despite that there were some deals to be had. The neat Laguna Seca Blue M3 seemed like a good deal at only $18,000, and the Rabbit Caddy didn’t strike $4,000 while the Audi A6 4.2 Quattro hit only $3,350. Finally, across the pond the clever sleeper Coupe Quattro sold at just over $8,000.

Which was the winner or surprise to you?

Hammertime Updates

We have an interesting lineup of Porsches, Audis and a sprinkling of Mercedes-Benz and BMW in the most recent additions to our value guide. Two turbocharged big Audis – the 1983 5000 Turbo and 1991 200 20V quattro Avant, traded for very reasonable sums. Then we had a brace of 944 Turbos; the low mileage ’89 hit over $33,000, while the no reserve ’86 and ’87s traded under $10,000. Popular was the 2003 BMW M5 Craig wrote up, a reasonable deal at $20,000, but the great value seemed to be both Mercedes-Benz models Craig and Andrew wrote up with the W126 and R129 (respectively) both around $7,000. Which was your favorite?

Hammertime Updates

We have a pretty odd assortment of updates to our Hammertime value guide this week. First was the stunning sale of the one-off E36 Canadian Edition Giallo M3 for $64,900 – a resounding answer to those who claim that the E36 isn’t particularly collectable. We also saw two reasonably priced Porsches in the 1980 911SC and 1976 912 come in under $30,000. The crazy Dali-inspired G500 Cabriolet hit double that at $62,100, while a few wagons saw value in the sub-$1,000 Audi 5000S Avant and the sub $7,000 Passat TDi Variant. Rounding things out was the ex-Playboy model but hacked up 1972 Mercedes-Benz 250C that ended at just over $9,000. What was the best deal?

Hammertime Updates

Well, if you’re a fan of Mercedes-Benz models, you’ll like this update of Hammertime. An overwhelming majority of what we saw sell in the past two weeks has been from the three-pointed star. Notable standouts were the well bought 190E 2.6 and high-mile 560SL, but probably the best performance deal has to be the sub-$12,000 C55 AMG. On the high end of the scale, we saw the outrageous Mosselman Twin Turbo 300CE AMG sell for its $26,500 asking price – a tidy profit considering it traded for less than half that in April. An E38 and E28, along with a crazy V10 TDi Touagreg and a super cheap Audi Cabriolet round out this update. Which was the best buy?
