LOL, I figured it would be MACs who would address Junker Airplanes, like a JU 52. There seems to be rise of old car enthusiast in the US. The neat thing is, the price slowly goes up, VS a new car where the price drops. The other aspect is cost of parts, they are available and not too expensive as compared to new cars. I saw a beautiful Corvair Monza convertible yesterday.
There is a extreme price rise over here. Just have been on one of the largest fairs/trade shows for oldtimers in Europe and the market has been constantly going up for years now.
The Porsche 964 RS is a good example, I know a case where someone sold his for around 40k euros a few years ago, and today they are going between 70k and 6 digits...
Same situation for alot of oldtimers with some prestige. And I don't think this price raise is gonna stop anytime soon.
You're right Hollis, it belongs in here. Hah. I recently put in a new alternator, front wheel bearings, rotors and brake pads...Have the head gasket, just need to get a torque wrench from my brother. Oddly enough, nearly any replacement part is available from a place in Kansas called Victoria British...
Didn't realise you had one of those - how come it hasn't rusted to bits up there in the woods?
Loved my Spit (another 1500 although without the silly export bumpers/fenders) - great fun to chuck around the country roads in Devon and Dorset, but a PITA to get any kit in. I chopped it in for Mk1 Golf GTi in the end.
