1989 Lotus Esprit Turbo SE

  Spotted in New Jersey is a 1989 Lotus Esprit Turbo SE for $24,900 USD.   This is my favorite color combination of white with tan leather interior.  The seller states the car was just serviced and is a nice driver.  It has 44,000 original miles.   The driver seat is showing more wear and tear as expected.  The passenger seat looks like it had very little use.  Overall the interior looks good or its age.   The Peter Stevens body style produced from 1987 to 1993  seem to be creeping up in price these days.   Recently a red 1989 Turbo SE sold for $29,700 USD. What do you think of these 80’s super cars?

1974 Jensen Interceptor

Found in Los Feliz, California is a 1974 Jensen Interceptor for $13,000 USD. This car requires a new paint job but the seller states it only has 80,000 original miles. The car does not run due to a faulty wire harness. I was able to find a new wire hardness for sale for $575. Lets hope that is all it needs to be drivable.  The Jensen Interceptor is a Grand touring car which was hand-built at the Kelvin Way Factory in West Bromwich, near

Two Bentley Turbo R Cars
Spotted in Denver Colorado are Two Bentley Turbo R Cars for $8,500 USD. You are getting 2 cars that need a lot of attention. Both cars are complete and original with clean and clear titles. The Red Turbo R has 60,000 miles and still has a nice interior but the paint has faded over time. There are electrical gremlins preventing this car from starting. The black Turbo R has 85,700 original miles and also has a nice interior. The Paint is faded but in worse condition than the red one. There is diagnosis of this car and the seller has not even tried to start it. What a shame to see these cars in this shape. They are such amazing cars when running but its going to take a hardcore enthusiast to take this challenge on.  I am always in awe at how beautiful the interior coachwork is in British cars. What do you think of the price for both these cars? Post your comments!
