    A few general comments about extensively modified cars.

    I watch a very successful Internet auction site daily, when dozens of cars are sold, or not sold (if they do not meet reserve).

    Very frequently cars with extensive modifications fail to sell because they did not meet their owner's reserve price.

    Buyers are wise to avoid those cars like the plague. First of all, one owner's modification is another's automotive atrocity. This is especially true with Exotic Supercars like ROlls ROyces, who are all essentially custom-made to their usually tasteless owner's (nouveaux riche) specs. Second, the modifications have most likely screwed up with the reliability of the car parts, and Third, if your state requires an inspection, usually engine modifications mess with it and you need to get certified again.

    On top of all that, used car prices reached a peak LONG AGO and have been FALLING since. Most of Tim's worthless 'finds' here seem to come from a different planet, their owners seem clueless to the above FACT.

      To my surprise, I see a Tassos comment with reasoned and well considered discussions....until the last sentence. Tim's finds are not "worthless" they are instead entertaining....which is a prime reason for TTAC's existence - entertaining its readers.

    I cannot wait until the all black wheel trend goes away. I have only ever seen one car that looked good with black wheels. ICK

  • Crtfour It's long before the first recall?
  • Oberkanone You get a workout driving an Opel GT compared to driving experience of today. No power steering, manual transmission, and just getting into and out of the car requires extreme physical flexibility. I favor the Saab Sonett III over the Opel GT. If I'm buying a tiny two seat 1972 odd car I'm going all in.

  • Lou_BC Not my problem. Buying anything on credit is a risk for buyer and seller.
  • Theflyersfan They could also haul dead, leaking cows. Before Top Gear, I'm sure none of us knew that. And at least one person was murdered in or around his car.
