• Hey Vince, I wish that you would stop telling people what a bargain these cars are. You are going to price me out of the market before I can snatch one up!

  • I am not doubting that these are great cars. However, it struck me as odd that they drew on engine-technology from Lotus (a company founded on chassis knowledge) and chassis-technology from GM (who surely are better known for their engines than their handling). It reminded me of that joke about heaven and hell:

    Heaven is where the police are British, the lovers French, the mechanics German, the chefs Italian, and it is all organized by the Swiss.

    Hell is where the police are German, the lovers Swiss, the mechanics French, the chefs British, and it is all organized by the Italians.

  • Don't forget the most interesting part of this engine (at least to me)—it was built by Mercury Marine.

    These are a bargain, but for $3 or 4k more, I've seen them frequently with half the miles.

  • One recently sold at the Barret-Jackson auction in Las Vegas. Original owner with 300 miles.AC and removable roof panels. Red. Recently serviced for road use. Sold for $38500.

    Cost at least $60,000 plus tax and maybe added dealer fees. Stored and insured for 34 years and sold for less than 60% of new cost. $60,000 invested in 1990 could easily be $200,000 plus now. All that to look at a car.
