Mint and original Guards Red exterior nicely complimented by it’s perfect supple tan leather interior. Fully documented since new and a former one owner car until ’06. This car has just completed a thoroughly comprehensive, mechanical and aesthetic 928 rotisserie restoration and reconditioning over the last nine months. You are now looking at a true concours condition 928 GT on every level. Agonizing attention to detail was paid to every last item in bringing this GT to it’s original and unmolested condition. It should also be noted that this particular GT is the only U.S. GT to be ordered with a factory leather instrument pod housing and factory leather center console. This GT will easily win all local and regional concours events and compete evenly on a national level. No expense was spared in bringing this already rare masterpiece back to “as new” condition. The entire body is simply perfect with absolutely no flaws. No chips, dings or scratches anywhere. Everything about this car is like new condition. Mechanically, the car has just recieved the following items; complete timing belt/water pump service including all tensioners and pulleys and all associated items, pan gasket, valve cover gaskets, intake gaskets, both knock sensors, seals, powdercoating of the intake and valve covers, entire clutch assembly including the disc, pressure plate, throw out bearing, pilot bearing, guide tube, release arm, rotors, pads, tires, retro-fitting and reconditioning of the AC system both front and rear, correct Bilstein shocks, Bosch spark plugs and OEM plug wires just to mention a few. In addition, it should also be stated that the underside of this GT is just as nice as it’s topside. The entire car has been returned to it’s original, unused condition. It looks, runs and drives like a brand new 928 GT! Regardless of mileage, this is most likely the nicest and newest 1991 928 GT in the country.

I’m a big fan of the 928 anyway, but in this color, trim, and with the 5 speed, I think this looks like a great example. Current bid is just under $14k (no reserve auction) and 8 days to go. I’ll update after auction for the final sale price.

1988 BMW M3 w/ 38k Miles Back on eBay

I had originally posted this low miles e30 M3 on my other blog in August earlier this year. It’s back on eBay and has already exceeded the highest bid of $20,100 (no sale) from the last auction. Take a look at this 1988 BMW M3 for sale on eBayMotors:

In my previous post, I guessed that the winning bid would be around $25k. Considering brand new M cars are apparently immune to the sales slump, do you think this legendary M car will find a buyer this time?

2000 BMW e39 M5 For Sale with only 4k Miles!

Let me start by saying, I am not a fan of the most recent 5 series platform. The e60 is just plain ugly compared to the e39. I have no doubt the V10 featuring 500hp is nothing short of breathtaking, but when you’re prepared to put down nearly $90k for a brand new one, but not in love with the shape, what options are you left with? How about saving $40k and buying a nearly new M5 of the previous generation?

2000 BMW M5 For Sale on eBayMotors:

quote from seller’s listing:

The ultimate expression of the ultimate driving machine. There isn’t a magazine on the planet that didn’t fall head over heels when the E39 debuted in 1998. the combination of power, handling, comfort, braking and overall drivability led to review after review naming the M5 the best car in the world at any price and a modern classic. Finding examples with well over 100,000 miles is commonplace; finding one with 3,059 miles like this one is a lot tougher. Who would own such a machine and not use it? BMW themselves, that’s who—the car sat garaged in the Greer, SC facility and was used by executives who flew over from Germany. It’s one of the lowest mileage M5’s on the planet, it’s perfect and it’s ready to roll.

We aren’t kidding about the critical acclaim. Here’s a sampling of quotes:

The 2000 BMW M5 is the king of all performance sedans, a classic for the ages.

Edmunds.com

“The fastest production sedan on the planet.”

Road and Track, March 2000

“… The M5 is as close to faultless as any car I’ve driven. Set the bar as high as you like, this thing will clear it. Unbelievable!

Jeff Karr – Motor Trend

“… The best and most consistently enjoyable sport sedan the world has ever known.”

Motor Trend, March 2000

“On the track, the M5 is hunkered down and grips the asphalt with confidence and composure. The instant-on electronic throttle response and the precise manual gearbox will bring a smile to any driver.”

Road and Track, March 2000

“For people who love cars, the M5 is quite simply the most desirable sedan in the world at any price. What more can we say?”
Car and Driver, March 2000

“Without sounding like a broken record, this is the one car to beat, faster, sharper, not to mention safer, and more luxurious then anything on the market, the best sports sedan in the world then, the best sports sedan now, and maybe even forever.”
Motor Week

“The new BMW M5 is simply the best.”
European Car, June 2000

There are no blemishes anywhere on the exterior of the car, just as you’d expect a garaged 2,700 mile car to appear. Tire tread is better than 90% and the wheels are perfect. There are no needs, no problems and no shortcomings as you do a walk around. The car is perfect.

The same goes for the interior. The leather seats are immaculate with virtually no evidence of wear, and they’re the only parts that show any use at all. The stereo is loud and crisp, the multifunction display in the dash, the gauges, all lights and all switchgear work exactly as new.

I’m just saying, if my lotto ticked gets punched this week, I’d take this over the newest version. If I remain mortal without the winnings, I might still think a well looked after used e39 M5 might be in the cards considering they now hover in the low 20’s for asking price.

1988 BMW e28 M5 For Sale with only 41k Miles!

I saw this very low miles and original example on Roadfly today. Every time I see a really nice one, I envision how nice my e28 535i would be with a stick and nearly 300hp!

Take a look at this 1988 BMW M5 For Sale on Roadfly:

quote from seller’s listing:

VERY LOW MILES. Beautiful example of the Rare 1988 E28 M5. Only a small number were built and only a small number remain. You are not likely to find a better example of this M5. Excellent Condition. Original. Unmodified. Gloss Black. Excellent Interior. Factory BBS Wheels. Yokohama AVS tires. Custom M5 logo mats.

In the U.S., the e28 M5 really is more rare than the e30 M3. Can you imagine what a 44k mile e30 M3 would have for an asking?!

1999 Alpina B12 6.0 For Sale in Spain

The owner of this fine car contacted me about posting his car for sale, and though I usually focus on cars for sale available in the U.S., I would never say no to an Alpina! Check out his 1999 Alpina B12 for sale on his own micro-site:

quote from seller’s for sale website:

The B12 6.0 E-KAT is the fastest Alpina ever to be based on the BMW E38 7-series and also features the largest and most powerful engine in its history. In order to achieve the healthy 430hp (DIN), the 6.0 litres engine is fitted with light Mahle aluminum pistons, reworked camshafts, intakes and exhaust, BOSCH Motronic M5.2.1 fuel injection and various other features. Torque in this V12 engine rises to 600 Nm, 500 of which are available at only 1700 rpm.

Alpina Switch-TronicThe E-KAT part of the nomenclature represents the exhaust systems with steel catalyst that greatly lowers emissions without having a large impact on performance. All this power is sent to the wheels (wrapped in 245/40ZR20 tyres up front and 275/35ZR20 out back) through the only available gearbox, the Alpina Switch-Tronic unit developed in conjunction with ZF.

The BMW e38 really is a fine platform and I can only imagine what the Alpina version brings to the table. According to the Alpina Archive website entry on the B12, it’ll do a standing quarter mile faster than a Ferrari 355!

Good luck with the sale Simon!

1968 Porsche 912 For Sale in Bahama Yellow

The early Porsche 912 continues to look like one of the last remaining bargains in the classic Porsche market. While 911’s of the same vintage can frequently be seen in the high 20’s for clean garden varietals, and over $100k for the early S cars, the 912 continues to hover in the low 10’s depending on mileage and condition, yet shares many of the same charms that make the 911 a winner. Many owners would argue it’s at least 80% the same experience.

Check out this 1968 Porsche 912 For Sale on Pelican Parts Forums:

quote from seller’s listing:

1968 Porsche 912
Bahama Yellow
Engine # 4093391
VIN 12804570
Paint 6805 L
5 Speed
Rebuilt 1969 Motor w/under 2500 miles Dual Weber Carbs
Great Mechanical Condition
Good Cosmetic Condition with normal chips and some rust in floors and rockers (inner and outer) will eventually need repair.
Mostly original down to the Numbered 1 through 13 slats on the rear deck lid. Supporting Doc’s for majority of cars life. Extra parts, sales brochures, original touch-up paint (I dont think it’s useable)…

$7,900. No email lowball offers, no scammers, no tire kickers. Title on hand. Amco Rack not included.

I am interested in partial trade of a nice original PRE-69 Beetle or a well kept 914. Please don’t email me wanting to trade a civic with a wing on it…

You can find more photo’s at http://www.themotoringjournal.com/ Simply enter 912 in the search at the right side.

The owner of this car has dropped the price $1100 in less than a month’s time and would seem to indicate a motivated seller. While the motor isn’t the original, it is rebuilt. And this isn’t going to be a concours car anyway. His website has many articles on the model and the classified ad on Pelican Parts is refreshingly honest. Personally if I were buying, I’d keep it as is if the rust was liveable and drive the balls off it!

Are Those Old School Momo Wheels on this 2.3-16 on eBay?

Typically I prefer to post discovered examples for sale that are in better condition and/or lower miles. But as I scrolled through the pics, the wheels on this car jumped out at me. They look like either original Momo 5 star or perhaps even Fittipaldi rims. Take a look at this 1987 Mercedes 190 2.3-16 on eBayMotors:

quote from seller’s eBayMotors listing:

Please take a good look at the pictures, and then make a bid on this very special and rare car that is fun to drive and a pleasure to own. The amazing leather interior, front and rear bucket seats, 5 speed (dog leg) racing gearbox, stunning factory original ground effects kit. These cars don’t come up for sale very often so don’t miss this one.

As a young man in high school many moons ago, these were the rims to get. Can you help identify them?
