AMG 3.6L Motor

  Spotted in Seattle, Washington is an AMG 3.6L Motor for $2,100 USD.  The seller states this is a very rare and hard to find motor.  It is capable of 280hp and came from Japan with 77k miles on it.   This motor would be a good candidate for a w1246 E320 Coupe swap.   It comes with a very rare 3.6 intake tube  and for W124 with HFM EFI (93-95), comes with an already-chipped ECU for non-ASR cars by Speedtuning to take advantage of the higher HP 3.6L. What do you think of this motor?

Porsche 930 Turbo Slant Nose Fenders and Hood

  Spotted in New Hampshire is a set of Porsche 930 Turbo Slant Nose Fenders and Hood for $800 USD.  The seller states these were taken off of a 1976 Porsche 911 after a fire.  The hood and fenders are made of metal and will need to be sandblasted.   They are not bent or twisted in anyway. Does anyone want a slant nose conversion these days?

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?

1958 Messerschmitt KR200

  Spotted in New Rochelle, New York is a 1958 Messerschmitt KR200 Microcar for $40,000 USD.  The seller has restored this 3 wheel micocar.  These cars always put a smile on people’s faces.  This one has gone through a full restoration but was modified to remove the plastic bubble top to look like a KR 201 roadster.   The seller states that projects cost 25,000 USD making his price very reasonable.   It runs and drives in forward and reverse but the seller admits the car is not perfect and is being sold in as-is condition.   He is open to trades of other microcars like the BMW Isetta. What do you think?
