1989 Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.6

White190E1

I intended to keep my 190E forever. Unfortunately, the snow bank that I hit after spinning off of the I-95 this past winter had other ideas. I walked away from the accident unscathed but my Baby Benz ended up in a ditch to the side of the road, the right front wheel pointed inward at a disconcerting angle. The front suspension was ruined and the frame slightly bent, but the rest of the car looked fine. I waited nervously for a few days to learn of the car’s fate: ultimately, the insurance company refused to pay for the necessary repairs and the car was totaled. I came very close to buying the wreck back and having it rebuilt, such was the strength of my emotional connection to the car. But calm reason prevailed and I let it go.

Nearly every day since then I search the internet for another one just like it. Apart from the color, this car for sale in Maryland is almost identical to the one I lost, even down to the mileage and condition.

1987 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa on auction with 7,646 miles

This one primarily serves to satisfy my curiosity, though I hope it satisfies the curiosity of some of our readers as well. Here we have an ultra-low mileage triple Black 1987 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa, located in New Jersey, up for a reserve auction. The fact that it is even up for auction is what has attracted my curiosity. Since it’s a reserve auction we may not see it sell, but that’s fine; my interest is how high bidding will go. Why someone would put so few miles on what is a pretty standard 911, I have no idea, but here we are so we might as well check in on what presents as an almost new 3.2 Carrera Targa.

1984 Volkswagen Vanagon Westfalia

s-l1600 (1)
I’d imagine all Westy buyers imagine themselves picking up and traveling the world in their van, adventuring and accruing a healthy stash of stories. Most probably end up lucky to get the occasional overnight, lugging the pop top to sailing practice. The previous owners of this van have lived the dream, the first taking the van from Florida to Britain to New Zealand as he moved. The sellers then shipped it to Chile, where they drove it up the Pan American Highway to the northeastern US, where it currently resides. The seller is hoping for $12k but hasn’t seen any bids at the opening $8k. Perhaps it’s the conflicting info in the description versus the data frame; the difference between 100,000 miles and 1,000,000 seems worth clearing up.

Cay1

The Porsche Cayenne is always a sore subject when brought up. Often the primary transportation of upper-middle class housewives such as Carmela Soprano and alike, the Porsche purist cringes when one drives by. But in 2010, Porsche decided to add a little flair to it’s normally mundane and mall cruising SUV to honor their victories in the Transsyberian Rallies. What we got was a truly off-road capable vehicle. This 2010 Porsche Cayenne S Transsyberia located in Central Illinois can have you ready to tackle the woods in your Porsche — if you don’t mind the color orange.

Porsche 911 3.2 Carrera Coupe Roundup

Naturally we feature Porsche’s 3.2 Carrera pretty frequently on these pages as it tends to provide one of the best mixes of value, performance, and style within the 911 catalog. It so happens that at the moment there are a few examples that are all broadly similar so it seemed as good a time as any to feature them all at the same time. These examples don’t necessarily represent the best values on the 911 market as each is low mileage – though not ultra-low – but they all come in some of the less standard colors and show in very good condition, so while the prices may be higher there is promise to be found in each one. We will begin with the one that is the rarest color combination: a Moss Green Metallic 1986 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe, located in California, with Brown leather interior and 54,000 miles on it.
