\1988 Pontiac Fiero GT


Fresh Find: Aug 13th, 2018 - End of Era Piece - Collection Grade Find, for the true Fiero Enthusiast.

1988 was the very last and very best year for the Pontiac Fiero as GM had refined the car over the years and saved the best improvements for the 1988 model year cars.

This is a 16,000 mile, one owner example in virtually as new condition throughout - in fact the underside is just as pristine as the top side. So if you were a Fiero Fan back in the 80s and missed out on getting your hands on one of these, this is likely your best, and last chance to buy a near new one... optioned right, in the best colour combo at a sensible price.

I must say that the early Fieros showed so much promise, but were overall such a disappointment, yet the much improved 1988 Fiero GT with V6 and 5 Speed Manual along with the, late to the table, factory suspension and braking enhancements ticked a lot of boxes for me back in the day.

Love What You Drive and finally get what you want for just $16,900. USD

\1988 Mazda RX-7


Fresh Find: Aug 13th, 2018 - Try and find a nicer example than this rare find for less.

Yes I know the 80s RX7 were not terribly fast and furious, but that said they were and are pretty decent sports cars when rationally compared against cars of that era. I was fortunate to own one of the first RX7s in North American way back in 1989 and although it's little rotary only put out 100hp at the time it was fabulous fun.

Motortrend reviewed the new RX7 back in 1986 (little changed in this 88 version) and they were clearly impressed too!

1988 Mazda RX7 - GXL (top for the line for the non-turbo rotary) - just 47k original miles and it looks near all original throughout. 147hp 13B Rotary with 5 Speed Manual Transmission.

Black on Grey Interior - the GLX had leather throughout and every option imaginable for a RX7 from this era.

Great looking with little to no evidence of wear or abuse... a rare find in an RX7!

Nice find at $10,995. USD

\1987 BMW 3 Series 325ic


Fresh Find: Aug 13th, 2018 - Simply a great BMW Cabriolet and a rare find in this condition some 31 years after leaving the factory in Bavaria.

Virtually an original Triple Black, E30 Cabriolet!

1987 BMW 325i Cabriolet - Powered by a sweet 170hp Inline Six with 5 Speed Manual.

Not a supercar by any means, and a bit more touring focused than pure sports car, but all in all a great Euro Tuned ride with a build quality that is hard to beat.

Certainly one of the nicest examples we have seen of late down at this fully depreciated price point.

This lived the southern life since new with just a few, clearly loving owners... look around this car as it is shocking fresh with little of the wear and tear you find on so many other examples from this era.

It won't last long once some other wise BMW enthusiast sets his eyes in it.

Value at $9,752.00 USD

1987 Porsche 928 S4 2dr Hatchback - Eastlake OH


Fresh Find: Aug 10th, 2018 - Oh 1987 was a great year for the 928 Porsche!

Rarely found ONE OWNER example.

Already known as a true Bahnburner the 928 in the late 70's early 80's was a must have for any stylish executive looking to travel at speed in comfort. In 1987 after some earlier degradation of 928s performance, brought on by federally mandated emission controls and the like, Porsche managed to engineer a refreshed 928 that ticked all of the right boxes.

1987 Porsche 928 S4 - factory blessed with the 5.0L 4 cam/32 valve V8 offering exactly what the doctor had ordered... 316hp. Porsche of course didn't stop there with the S4 as brakes, suspension and body were all breathed on as well.

Original Guards Red on Black Leather all looking darn good at 103k original miles. Pristine CarFax History with no accidents or damage noted.

Car comes with all keys, books with Service Stamps, tool kit, inflator and more. Reportedly all systems work as designed without surprises.

A fabulous top of the hill Porsche for $15,990. USD


1987 Porsche 928 S4 2dr Hatchback - Eastlake OH

1987 Porsche 928 S4 2dr Hatchback - Eastlake OH


Fresh Find: Aug 10th, 2018 - Oh an ownership worthy 60's era Porsche 912 had become a very tough find in today's marketplace.

These air cooled, four cylinder Porsches seem to speak to the next generation of automotive enthusiasts and hence are fast becoming market darlings.

1968 Porsche 912 - Numbers Matching Example in it's factory original, highly desirable Irish Green with one known repaint some 5 years ago. The car was sourced from a long term 20+ year owner in the southern states that over the years had invested significant financial resources to make it nice.

The car shows impressively throughout with some flaws, but still very presentable... this is a 'driver' not a show car!

As stated earlier - repainted 5 years ago in it's original Irish Green, Interior was restored 2 years ago along with what is described as a full engine rebuild at that time. Documentation on this refreshing did not come with car, but the work done is evident.

The car fell into a period of non usage due to the owner's illness and sat in a carport during this period, hence some deterioration resulted. Once purchased the seller went through the fuel system, rebuilt the carbs and got the car running again. In addition the brakes had seized and new front calipers were sourced and installed to correct.

Paintwork and body look good and the car is solid, pans, floors etc. show no evidence of any significant corrosion, but the Rockers are rusted through and in need of replacements.

Good looking, strong running, well loved 60's 912s are difficult to find and always pricey... we think that this one may show some promise at a number a wee bit below the seller's current ask of $35,000. USD 



Fresh Find: July 13, 2018 - An original, clean climate, west coast beauty that found it's way east a few years back.

1986 Porsche Carrera Coupe - 126k original miles - 3.2L air cooled H6 with 5 Speed 915 Transmission.

Impressive throughout in gleaming Guards Red on Black Leather - Books and records are with the car! None cracked dash and the car is corrosion free.

Private seller offering a great looking, strong running 911 Coupe at just $36,500. USD



Fresh Find: July 13, 2018 - So you missed out back in the mid 60s on buying the Mustang that you had drooled over as a teen... well here is your second kick at the can.

1965 Ford Mustang Coupe... Dry Climate California Car (Black Plate) that remains ALL ORIGINAL with 95k carefully preserved miles.

Now this is not quite a sports car just yet as it was factory delivered with a base 6 cylinder engine and automatic transmission, which is still installed... but think of the possibilities that this original Mustang presents!

Two Owner, Garage Kept piece that is solid throughout and ready to be driven.

Now of course there a a few different directions you could take with this one... leave it stock and original and simply drive and enjoy just as the factory built her, amp it up by dropping in that 289/302 4V V8 along with an upgrade the wheels and tires or use this as a great base for that full resto mod Mustang you have always dreamed of. 

The directional choice is yours, but no matter which direction you decide to take, with an ask of $14,500. USD the value found in this Original Mustang is near impossible to match.



Fresh Find: July 13, 2018 - You'll have to agree with me when I say that Aston Martin just has a way with automotive design. Their cars are timeless, modern, yet classic, and nothing else in the market today looks like an Aston Martin.

Rare opportunity for the right buyer... 2006 Aston Martin DB9 Coupe - aggressively priced!

A two owner car with well documented service and in the hands of it's last owner for over 8 years. A dry climate piece all of it's life, so wear and tear is at a minimum even though it has 39k miles on the odometer. Yes a few more miles than some, but it's been maintained and look at the price.

This is a pristine history car with a clean title and clear CarFax with no indication of past damage or accidents!

Stunningly beautiful in Silver Metallic on Red Leather. 450hp V12 with Auto Transmission!

Opportunity knocks at $39,900. USD



Fresh Find: July 13, 2018 - Unique and lovely 993 Cabriolet...

This is not one of your often seen 'Plain Jane' Porsches as this was a special order by a clearly discerning buyer.

First year 993 - 1995  Porsche Carrera Cabriolet factory finished in Aventurine Green on Chestnut Brown Leather with matching soft top. You will note that Aventurine Green is one of those rare Porsche colours that I term chameleon tones as it's appearance changes dramatically dependent upon the light that it is exposed too. Sometimes green sometimes blue and even black and grey.

Just 54k original miles on this virtually original California find and just ONE OWNER from new!

Potent 272hp 3.6L H6 with 6 Speed Manual and RWD.

$45,000. USD is the ask and we think it's great value for anyone looking for an air cooled car that different than the rest... you'll never see another like this pass you on the road!



Fresh Find: July 13, 2018 - Another Unique Special Order Porsche, but this one is a 996 Coupe.

I know you may think me crazy, but these First Year 996 cars are one of my personal favorites as the lines just work for me, where as the later facelift 996s aren't my thing.

1999 Porsche 911 Coupe - in hard to find Speed Yellow on Black Leather... factory optioned with Turbo Twist Rims, Seat in Full Leather with Crests, Supple Leather Package and Contrast Stitched in Yellow threat to match the exterior, along with Seat Belts in Yellow, with Trimmed Mats to match. Boy somebody really knew what they wanted and darn it all looks good. We sourced a 997 Coupe that matched this car's options, near to a tee, and it looked fabulous in the flesh!

Here we go again (sorry we seem stuck on Cali cars this week) another dry climate, California find. This one has just 57k original miles with Fresh Rotors & Pads, Recent Tires etc. Looks very well loved throughout!

Take a peek at the private seller's video (not the best video, but it shows the car well).

The ask is $22,000. USD - yes a little more than some early 996s, but this one looks worthy.



Fresh Find: July 13, 2018 - A true 'Keeper' right from the day it left the factory until the present time.

This is a very special find that is simply perfect for the collector or enthusiast that wants a piece that can be driven and enjoyed, but yet comes with fabulous potential for future capital appreciation.

Truly unique in today's marketplace as this is not a restored XKE, instead this is a car that has been loved and in fact used by it's past owners.

1971 Jaguar XK E-Type Coupe... no, not one of those high roof 2+2 Jags this is slinky low roof Coupe.

This 47 year old, dry climate find has been in the hands of it's last owner for the past 40 years after buying it way back in 1977 at 68k Miles - and he added just 20k miles to the odometer through his 40 year ownership period.

To my eyes this car has aged beautifully and it is patina rich, making it the real thing, not an over restored, unusable, garage queen.

Much more to learn on this find, but having personally owned and loved an E-Type way back in the day I find this one particularly intriguing.  The ask is $69,900. USD - call me now if you too have an interest in learning more.



Fresh Find: July 12, 2018 - The previously unattainable may now just be within range!

A very rare find that ticks a lot of my boxes and we think worthy of some serious thought by anyone looking to possess the very best of Air Cooled Porsche cars.


Shockingly pristine 1996 Porsche 993 Turbo... original and stock throughout, with none of the normally expected wear and tear you would see on others at the recorded 110k original miles. Clearly a car that has been garage kept, enjoyed often, but treated with the respect that such an exotic deserves. The mileage calculates out to just over 5k miles per year, so yes it was used, but no where near the daily driver range.

The car looks special and obviously the original owner spent large to get it just the way he wanted it, optioned to the max.

Fully dealer serviced from new with a $16k USD refresh including new Turbos 25k miles ago and a Major Service with Fresh Clutch and Tires just 1000 miles ago.

Original Paint... and it looks great in Arena Red Metallic!

Stunning, yet value priced example of a modern era collectable - yours today at $99,500. USD



Fresh Find: July 12, 2018 - Trust us... you are going to Love What You Drive!

One of the best all round Porsche bargains in the marketplace today. The sometimes forgotten, too often ignored, Porsche Boxster 'S'.

Sure, you have been focused on that 911 purchase, but you, like many, are finding that your budget just won't stretch enough to actual make that dream a reality. Look no further because the Boxster 'S' can possibly be the answer as it is truly a real Porsche and in fact near all 911 under the skin.

The Boxster S is a great Porsche and it out handles and out performance near all of the 80's Carreras and competes well against most 911s right up to the later 996 cars.

Today's find is a pristine 2002 Porsche Boxster S out of dry, sunny California with just 40k original, clean history miles from new. This is a private party sale so it is prime for you drive and fly home folks.. what a way to holiday! We know because we did it ourselves, flying into California and driving home to Toronto with our Porsche Boxster purchase... marvelous memories!

This is a real nice, low mileage, maintained example and as such real value at $12,000. USD



Fresh Find: July 12, 2018 - Please don't let this one slip away as finding another as nice will be harder than you may imagine.

If you have been chasing a 911 Coupe you'll know that the 964 era cars have become very desirable and hence finding a good one, at a sensible price point can be tough. Well today we have one that should speak to many of you.

1991 Porsche Carrera '4' Coupe.. great look in Grand Prix White on Black Leather. 247hp 3.6L Air Cooled H6 with 5 Speed Manual & AWD. A revolutionary 911 when introduced back in the day and today it is a fabulous combination of classic styling with a much modernized chassis and power that the older 911s only wished they had.

This is a California Find that has spent near all of it's life in the sunny southern states, and it shows... super fresh throughout with little to no wear - wherever you peek. Car looks fabulous from any angle with a stunning exterior set off by a set of Cup Rims, a near wear free interior and an engine bay that is pristine.

This is a clean history 911 with an unblemished CarFax that documents the car's ownership history and mileage. In addition the car has much of it's service history intact and with the car.

Just 104k miles to date on this beauty with lots of recent work completed to keep it running strong.

Yes a 964 Coupe like this is a tough find, but that we have found it all you need to do is call to seize this all too rare opportunity... offered at $44,900. USD



Fresh Find: July 12, 2018 - Got to say I am a little smitten with this classic MG find!

Yes, there are lots of MGs to pick from when you start looking seriously, but this early MGB stands out from the crowd for me.

1966 MGB Roadster - a dry climate, California car that underwent a comprehensive restoration in 2012.

Beautifully finished in Soft Blue on Black Leather with matching blue piping

1.8 L 4 cylinder OHV engine, SU twin carbs.
4 speed gear with electric overdrive.

The car drives great and does not leak. The tires, soft top, seats, chrome, paint and engine are all in great condition. Also included is a knock off kit to remove the wheel knockoffs. Everything works on the car, lights, wipers, blinkers, backup lights, top, overdrive, gauges, etc.

The car is located in San Diego and we think a nice find for someone wanting to drive and enjoy their classic while they await future financial appreciation. 

Great fun for $14,000. USD




Fresh Find: July 9, 2018 - Direct from one Porsche lover to another!

1995 Acura GS 'R' - 1.8L VTEC Twin Cam provide 170hp and an 8200 rpm redline with 5 Speed Manual.

A truly rare fond this one because it is all stock and original! Better yet it is garaged, loved, dry climate California car.

Pristine and near factory fresh everywhere you look, totally belying it's 70k original miles... clearly a car well respected from birth.

Impressively kept example with a large packet of documentation and service history through the years.

Lots to love here at just $15,500. USD



Fresh Find: July 4th, 2018 - I have long been a fan of the Mazda Rotary cars... my admiration started way back in the day when my then brother in law took me a youthful teen out for a test drive of the then just introduced Mazda R100 in 1969. It took me some time to get my own Rotary, but I was one of the first to buy a new RX7 back in 1979 and I loved that thing.

Today we have what is becoming a very rare find: A near mint condition 1988 Mazda RX7 Convertible!

This is a mature one family owned all original piece that has been garage kept and properly maintained from day one. A dry climate California original that remains in near Factory Original condition throughout with 55k original miles.

1963 Chevrolet Corvette - Original Factory 327/4 Speed Car that underwent a comprehensive restoration many years ago and a car that has been coddled and garage kept ever since.

Of note is the fact that the original 327 Engine is no longer with the car as it was replaced with another 327 from the correct era, therefore this is not a Numbers Matching car.

Cosmetics are very impressive throughout with just enough patina to make you realize that this is real, nice and now 55 years of age.

A strong running example that has no known needs mechanically and capable of driving anywhere... not something you can say of many of these aging Vettes.

1963 Chevrolet Corvette

1963 Chevrolet Corvette


Fresh Find: July 02, 2018 - Opportunity knocks as we believe that the DeTomaso Pantera is a fabulous candidate for some hefty value appreciation in the years to come.

Although quite a good number of these were produced, many of these cars over the years got into the wrong hands and fell into a state of disrepair, hence good ones are become very rare... and here we have a good one.

Desirable 'Early Production' 1971 Pantera with the ting steel bumpers and 330hp V8 - reportedly 34k original miles and a dry climate California car from new. Originally delivered to San Diego California.

All build details backed up by the Marti Report that is present with the car. Virtually a stock example with some mild enhancements.

Looks fabulous throughout and reportedly runs, drives like the true thoroughbred it was built to be.  

The Pantera still look great today now near 50 years after it was first introduced. A 70s Supercar that remains a visual standout on any road, fast and furious from birth!

We find the $75,000 USD ask for this one a real opportunity for the right buyer.



Fresh Find: June 30, 2018 - Velvet Red Rocket... hurry as it will not last long!

Very desirable and so very hard to find - 1989 Porsche 944 'S2' Coupe.

Wonderfully preserved, dry climate California find that has clearly been in the hands of loving & attentive owners.

124k original miles... may seem like a lot but given it is nearing 30 years of age that computes to just 4,000 miles per year.

Rare original Velvet Red on Beige Partial Leather all looking quite impressive for it's age.

This was optioned right from the factory with the all too rare 220 option code - Limited Slip Differential.

Service is up to date and wear and tear are at a minimum... buy now or it will be gone! A lot of Porsche for this money.

Offered at a very sensible $10,800. USD



Fresh Find: June 30, 2018 - I was just 14 years of age when I saw my first Mustang Fastback and like many a lad from back in the day that first peek has never left me. A memorable, mystical machine that calls out to me every time I see one.

No doubt that you, like me, never had the opportunity to own one back in the day... but now some 50+ years later we present you a fresh chance to right that wrong.

1965 Ford Mustang Fastback GT...  sure it's a GT Clone, but do you really care at this price, as it it simply ticks near every Mustang box that you have on your long list.

The car was the recipient of a very recent, full restoration (less than 500 miles) to what we sense is a darn high standard throughout. Yes some of you pure performance oriented buyers may want to take this just a little further, and up the power a wee bit more, but what a platform to start with if that is your desire!

289/225 hp Engine, 4 Speed Manual, Front Disc Brakes, Deluxe Pony Interior and stunning in Twilight Metallic.

Under 500 miles since the resto was completed and offered at $39,900. USD




Fresh Find: June 30, 2018 - Now that prices have soared you have pretty well missed out on buying that no longer affordable 70's BMW 2002 tii. You, like many of us have been lusting over a tii for decades, but the good ones have now climbed well out of range and it is time to put that dream to bed and move on.

Today we have a candidate worthy of your lust and it is priced right, not cheap, but still affordable!

A truly great example of one of the most desirable BMWs built in the modern era... 1999 E36 BMW M3 Coupe.

This is one of finest examples that we have seen in recent years, a dry climate, religiously maintained, wonderfully preserved original which presents in near showroom condition throughout.

Please look around the market and compare the available E36/M3 stock and tell me you have found one that is nicer than this under $20k USD.  

This model is highly regarded as one of the best handling BMWs ever built, fast, fun and very toss able.

Gorgeous in desirable Black on Black Leather, Fully Optioned and unruffled, with a pristine CarFax history. Some very mild modifications on this - just enough to bring out the full character of the car without ruining the fabulous product that BMW built.

Love What You Drive, value appreciation is already creeping in on this model and it has an upside over the longer term. Yours for $18,900. USD



Fresh Find: June 30, 2018 - Nice, very well respected 911 Targa ready for it's next lover.

Currently a Virginia car which lived in California until the mid 2000s, with records going back to 1988.

1986 Porsche Carrera Targa in lovely Iris Blue on Tan Leather. Car looks, and in fact is, amazingly well preserved with 118k miles recorded since new. A few very minor flaws noted by the seller, but nothing that should ever turn you away from a find like this.

Fresh Find: June 29, 2018 - You may be asking yourself... is this really a Sports Car? Well now some 61 years after this treasured piece left the factory I would suggest that it is now a true American Exotic with a sporting nature.

When you are considering an aging classic of this vintage you need to remember that you are not just buying a car you are buying it's provenance and it is provenance that sets this one apart from so many of the other old Thunderbirds out there.

1957 Ford Thunderbird - with factory Hard Top.

For those of you that are understandably unaware of Ken McBride (past owner & restorer of this Bird) and his prominence in the Auto Collecting world here are a few items to provide you with a little prospective.

One of Ken's many toys goes on the block

This Thunderbird has been a prized possession all of it's life and now you have a chance to add it to your family's garage. No not a great sports car but truly a very special piece all the same.

Fresh Find: June 28, 2018 - A great example of one of the toughest finds in the Porsche marketplace today.. a project worthy 911.

Throughout the year I continually get calls from prospective clients looking for an Air Cooled - Fixer Upper and although we may see a few, more often than not they are disappointments, unworthy of the investment of time and money that would be required to bring them back to life. Corrosion is more often than not the main culprit as the skill set necessary most guys don't possess and cost of properly repairing a rusted late 70s/80s 911 in most cases simply does not make sense. Lots of backyard bashers try, but few succeed and their leftover non-restorable project cars litter many a garage across N.A.

This one we sense is different... 1980 Porsche 911 SC Targa. Numbers Matching find with lots of original paint remaining and recently sourced by the seller out of a long-term owners storage facility.

Looks to be impressively solid, top to bottom, with all of the original parts intact. The engine will turn over and in fact start up, but sputters out shortly thereafter. Overall the vehicle verges on operative, but needs attention. Targa Top is in good shape and some determined attention to the cosmetics we think will make this patina'd find presentable.

Go ahead and look around the market to see if you can do better at $22,500. USD



Fresh Find: June 28, 2018 - I must declare that I am unable to be fully rational when I find a worthy Lotus Europa as I lusted after these in my teen years and have yet to get them out of my psyche.

Oh so rare to find one like this... very desirable 1973 Europa S2 Twin Cam Special

The particular car has been the subject of an intensive ground up restoration at the hands of an experienced Lotus collector and it is now available, fully sorted and ready to be enjoyed... talk about 'Loving What You Drive'. 

Very few of these very special Lotus cars remain roadworthy and although 9300 Europas were produced and finding a ownership worthy example today, especially the S2 Twin Cam variant is more difficult than you may believe. There is no shortage of project Europas available, but I caution you as the cost and effort required to restore one of these will likely far exceed your budget by a wide margin.

Here is a great example of what I mean... try and bring this 74 Twin Cam back to the near new condition of this fresh 1973 - Click the LINK

1976 Porsche 912


Fresh Find: June 28, 2018 - Heads up you budget worn, classic focused, air cooled Porsche buyers. Just like the generations that came before you not everyone who wanted a 911 could afford one and for that very reason Porsche introduced the '912'... a true 911 sans the 6 cylinder and in it's place of the six Porsche placed a simpler, more economical 4 cylinder engine.

This is one of the now quite rare 1976 Porsche 912E's with the Fuel Injected 2.0L H4 and five speed manual transmission. Only 2100 of these one year only model were built to fill a gap in the Porsche lineup after the discontinuation of the 914 and before the introduction of the 924 cars.

This super nice California find has clearly been the recipient of much love and attention over the years and certainly lots of dollars invested more recently as it has had a complete engine tear down and rebuild just 5,000 miles ago.

Looks fabulous throughout in India Red on Biscuit Interior.

A very rare find and when all the attributes are considered we think it to be a hell of an opportunity @ $29,900. USD

Hurray as we can't find you another to replace this once it is gone!

Fresh Find: June 28, 2018 - Every once and awhile something trying unique and extra special comes along... this is one of those cars!

For me this is without a doubt one of favorite Porsche looks a fat fender'd 930 with a traditional nose and vented rear fenders. Yes the far more common Flachbau/Slantnose builds are nice, but for me dialing it all back minus the Nose makes the 911 just right.

This stunning find is a true 'Factory Special Wishes' piece documented by Porsche.

1986 Porsche 930 - 29k original miles from new and near flawless throughout.

Seller's Notes:

The previous owner kept the car garaged, and even had an enclosed trailer (painted in the same color of the car) that he used to transport the car to various Porsche Club shows, avoiding road use and wear.  This pampered use and care are very well reflected in the condition and very low mileage.

The car is fully stock without oil leaks and including all the factory paint markings made at the factory when built.  The anodized plating on the hardware is pristine and in new condition.  It is a very solid driving car and has that new-feel expected in a car like this. 

Paint to Sample Platinum Metallic on Beige and Wine Leather, all just as it left the factory.
