porsche-911-america-roaster-10 1992 Porsche 911 America Roadster Factory Turbo Body (964 Model) Odometer: 144,800 miles Black Manual Transmission 6 cylinder Condition: Excellent Price: $69,900 US Dollars Click Here for Ad I saw one of these in dark blue sell less than a year ago for $79,000. The prices seem to have climbed to $100k since then. This one is discounted due to the higher miles. I still think its worth it due to the rarity of the America Roaster. Only 250 were made for the US markets from 1992 to 1993. Its a good looking car and should hold its value very well.

  1955 Powell Truck 6 cylinders Rear Wheel Drive Manual Transmission Blue Rebuilt Title Price $9,000 US dollars I dont think I have ever seen a Powell Truck or ever heard of one. Only 1 picture was given in the ad. This car was built by the Powell Manufacturing Company in Compton, California. PMC was widely known for motor scooters that were popular in the 1940s. Between September 1954 and March 1957 they manufactured Sport Wagons. They were built on modified Plymouth chassis. Overall PMC built approximately 1,200 pickup trucks total. Its always fun for me to do research on a car that may not be an appreciating classic but something that deserves to be recognized as automotive history. Click Here for Ad   In Motor Life magazine, Oct 1955 issue, the PMC truck was called “an obvious choice as one of the most interesting and unique automobiles in the U.S.” In the February 1956 issue of Motor Trend, magazine co-founder Walt Woron concluded his article: “The Powell Brothers, then, have succeeded in their purpose: to provide a vehicle that ‘… can’t be beat for general utility…[that makes] the perfect runabout or 2nd family car…'”

porsche-944-s2-1990-baltic-blue-4 1990 Porsche 944 S2 Rare Baltic Blue 4 Cylinder 3.0 Engine VIN: WP0AB2944LN450337 New Jersey License Plate Location: New York Price: $12,000 Click Here for Ad The Porsche 944S2 is worth mentioning. It is not a low production car by most Porsche production numbers. There were 3,650 made in 3 years for the US Markets, but only 449 delivered in 1990. Porsche 911 pricing has gone through the roof and are out of reach for many enthusiasts these days. I think people are starting to discover the Porsche 944 and 944 Turbo cars as well as the 928 models for their performance and value. They are a lot of bang for the buck. Porsche introduced these cars in 1989 and they made 208hp from a normally aspirated dual overhead cam 16 valve 3.0 Liter version of the 944 engine. It was the largest production 3.0 Liter 4 cylinder engine of its time.
