Serendipitous Car Show
We were headed to the beach and came upon a roadside show. What more is there to say.
In the Valley: Not Much
So this week there are few if any great deals. There are muscle cars, mustangs, a few hot rods, a massively overpriced TR-6, and a handful of beetles. I was tempted to put beaters that could be cool on here just for a change, but the real story is that pickings are slimmer than ever in the valley. So slim that I posted a 61 Dodge Seneca, just because it was the rarest thing I could find.
In the Valley: 52 Chevrolet 3100 (Truck Edition)
This absolutely beautiful 52 Chevy has had a body-off restoration and is certainly worth the price of admission. Have a look here.
Of course if that doesn’t quite do it for you there’s this 1966 6x6 Truck.
In the Valley: A cheap victory
This dirt cheap 69 Triumph Spitfire (see what I did there?) is available in the valley this week. Yes, it has a lot of miles on it, but on the other hand, imagine the amount of work it takes to put nearly 100k on a Triumph. Assuming that this has been rebuilt from the ground up not less than 3 times. Given that mileage this much be a practically new ride or one that has to be pushed down the road.
In the Valley: 1931 Ford Coupe
This great blacked-out hotrod looks fantastic and must be wonderful to drive. I’ve seen it around town, and it is immaculate.
In the Valley: 55 T-Bird
This week I decided to go with the classic American iron. Here’s a 1955 T-Bird. It’s hot, it’s for sale, and it’s less than Civic money. Although it is really hard not to post this glorious single cab vw, similar to the one my grandfather had, as the choice of the week. Unlike last week’s post, the pickings were slim this week (although that 9K Bugatti with no pic was interesting) as the we dropped briefly back into winter and the nice cars went away. Here’s to next week.
1923 Skoda P.A. - before they were a subsidiarty of VW, Skoda apparently made some police vehicles… which eventually fell into nefarious hands, naturally.
The Fastest Fiat You’ve Ever Seen
This Fiat is fast… makes me almost want to buy that local 600 and add a
big bike engine to it.

The Fiat X1/9 was never a very fast car, but that’s nothing that can’t be
solved by tearing out the old, smog-hamstrung Italian four and cramming a
Suzuki GSX-R 1000 engine in there instead. More

New Focus ST, nice
In the Valley: a 1968 Mercedes Benz Coupe
There are an array of really old cars on this week’s list, including: 1929 Studebaker Erskine, 1941 SuperDeluxe Ford Coupe, 1930 Sedan Delivery. There’s also a very cool 77 Datsun pickup and the requisite MG, a Spitfire, a Fiat 600, a ‘55 Chevy handman wagon more Beetles than you can shake a stick at,
I chose a 68 Benz coupe (probably a 280SE) as probably the best value and the most interesting car available in the valley. If you have the means, this is probably the coolest vehicle you can find. Happy hunting.
