      Man, this price really was mega for a 14K miles 91 BRG Miata - - $30,000!

      Seller purchased this in May for $22K and then cleaned it up and performed some updates before deciding that he had purchased too many cars. Bear in mind, he just sold his red 91 for $22K earlier in the week.

      Losing is just a winning streak in the wrong direction -David

      Looks like BaT launched some new tech in their model pages. You can now search by year, price, and date.

      This is definitely good news, though I can't say I mind getting a few extra notifications outside of what I'm really looking for (i.e., all Saabs rather than just a 9000 Turbo manual).

      Premium listings have extended duration. The 1913 Silver Ghost we sold ($650K) was a 14-day sale which felt a little too long - but the Bentley Continental Flying Spur I have up there now is running for 10 days which is a little better. Gives people room to breathe and dive in a little deeper to high-value cars.

      The highest I've seen is 21, which was the No Reserve Gullwing. Most premium stuff is between 10-14 days. It makes sense give some of the values. If you are dropping 500k on a car, you probably need time to move funds. And the big thing is inspections. A $500,000 purchase is worth a $800 plane ticket to fly an expert out to inspect the car. That's tough to do in 7 days.

      Can't imagine how much that paint job cost or what it did to the long term value of an already collectible car. Still, it looks amazing in white! Wonder what this will hammer at?

      Here's the Hollywood Sport Car Tiger:

      I grew up with one of these (a Mk1a). My dad used to brag about that Doane Spencer car all the time about how it was faster than a GT350 or a Corvette (not in stock form of course), but he liked to bend the truth. A lot of street Tigers have been, ahem, upgraded.

      He still owns his, bought new in Hawaii while he was in the Coast Guard station there. I have hard copies of like every STOA newsletter he used to get all through the 60's and 70's...

      Sheesh, maybe I should have done that with my 75k mile B5 that had the rear window frame and trunk smashed by a tree. If I had the skills I’d have madd a crew cab out if it.

      This car is really cool, and it even had manual side bolsters and a manual memory seat (there is a notch latch for memory). Not to mention the cool mechanical element to the 4WS. I am curious about the seatbelts because it says there is an open recall, and it has the original emergency stickers on the console. I thought these had the power belts- maybe these were retrofitted at some point.

      That Prelude is seriously cool and a nice trip down memory lane. Amazing how well the interior has held up. Love that equalizer.

      I was a poor kid who went to high school with a bunch of rich (to me) kids. There were a couple of these in our student parking lot and I was so jealous.
