A Weekend Out0 Comment

Uncategorized | Mon, 07 Apr 2014 Posted by :

 

So part of my day job causes me to travel some. This weekend I needed to go to the Charlotte AutoFair to do some research for a possible 2015 event here at work. While there I figured let’s see what else I could find.  I knew there would be nice Vintage auto, this being an AACA event. There of course were hundreds of Mustang and Ford venders, great for you Factory Five guys. GM had a great presence. There were a surprising number of VW vendors however. pans , motors, transmissions, cars, titles. Then among the rows and rows of cars (The pedometer recorded 16 miles on Friday) were a nice selection of kit cars. A few Dune Buggies, Superlite Cars was there with a massive display of SL-Cs, a few Cobra guys, and an interesting Sebring 3000. The Sebring had more gauges under the hood than the last cockpit is was in. They Must do Something, but the price wasn’t bad, provided it didn’t need a complete rebuild. I am posting this here jst to remind Priceofhistoys readers that our kits can be found everywhere, and when looking in the unexpected cases (ie AACA swap meets) a few good deals might be had.

Hey Everyone,

Be sure to check out our eBay store at http://stores.ebay.com/kitcarguy . I am going through my collection and weeding out things I no longer need to make room for stuff I want. I have reproduction fiberfab emblems, bradley emblems, kit car magazines and more. Anything you purchase also helps keep the website up and running. If you see anything you like purchase it. If you are looking for something send me a message and I will see if I have it.

Thanks
Donnie

Todays’s “Everything that is wrong with kit car sellers” Post3 Comment

Uncategorized | Sun, 23 Feb 2014 Posted by :

So you ever browse listings to find things that you just cant help but wonder what the seller is thinking? I was doing just that today and came up with a list of some of my favorites. Sorry if any of you sellers read this website, but these are all worth taking the time to call you out on .

Fiberfab Banshee Body http://newyork.craigslist.org/mnh/cto/4336266460.html

This seller seems to think his/her banshee body and nose is worth $4500 . They are so convinced they did not even upload a photo  and have made the price FIRM! “RARE” kit car tax at its finest. back in 2008 we posted one that was going for $1000 OBO.

Fiberfab Valkyrie http://springfield.craigslist.org/cto/4303989423.html

Upside is it does have a chevy 327, downside is …well everything else. Ok I get it. its a good starting point. But thats about all. At $5750 I can think of several other cars I would rather own.

Fiberfab Avenger http://dallas.craigslist.org/dal/cto/4340068383.html

If the 327 above does not tickle your fancy maybe you have $7850 laying around and you would like Vtec power instead. There is still a lot of work that needs to be done on this one, and just a quick read through and its apparent this seller thinks he will get back out what he put into it. Good luck with that one.

Let us know if you have seen any cars out there that have really inflated prices. We would love to post them.

Hey Everyone,

After giving it some careful thought I have decided we need to bring on a few more content writers to the website. Paul and myself can only do so much. Here is a basic rundown of what I am looking for.

  • Must have a passion for kit cars.
  • Have 2-3 hours per month to upload photos, and post new content, items you find for sale, etc.
  • Be able to present both the good and bad of a particular car. We do not sugar coat things here. If we think it stinks, the price is two high, etc we say it.
  • Experience with wordpress is helpful, but not needed.
  • Most important is to have a vast knowledge of kit cars.

In addition new categories will be added to make the website a bit more diverse. Coverage from local florida cars shows, events, and more will be coming in the near future as well as a new look . If you feel you would make a great part of the team feel free to use the contact form and email me with your relative experience.

This is not a paid gig.

Thanks

I want to apologize for the lack of updates recently.  I closed my race track at the end of the year and became the GM of another on Jan 1. Its been a busy few weeks for me but im at the home stretch.

Also what else would you guys and girls like to see on price of his toys? I have some idea moving into 2014 I would like to try out but I want to hear from you. Let me know what you would like to see more of, less of, or new with the website.

 

Thank you and I hope you all had a great holiday and new year.

Lotus M250………..So they say HAHA1 Comment

Uncategorized | Fri, 08 Nov 2013 Posted by :

eBay is full of interesting stuff. Check this one out. The seller calls this one a Lotus M250 inspired Concept Supercar Prototype, But really it is trying to look like a Porsche CGT. Not very hard but trying. Appears to be on a Fiero Chassis. I cant see anything the car offers that remotely resembles the Lotus. Can anyone else? There is a reserve on this one that has not been met. I would be curious to see what some sucker pays for it. http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?icep_ff3=2&pub=5575009554&toolid=10001&campid=5337106048&customid=&icep_item=151156877626&ipn=psmain&icep_vectorid=229466&kwid=902099&mtid=824&kw=lg

OMG it’s SOOOOO UGLY!0 Comment

Ugly! I guess that is just one of the many words that can describe this COUGH Aventador COUGH Replica. It is currently at $40k with the reserve not met. I would post photos but they are watermarked with the company name and phone number and I would rather not give them any advertising for this monstrosity. Just click the link and see how bad it really is !

What happened to it? Mystery Reverse Trike2 Comment

Uncategorized, What is it? | Wed, 16 Oct 2013 Posted by :

Years ago while browsing ebay this interesting trike was for sale complete with the molds. I thought the design was very good, but obviously dated.  The trike appeared to be complete and “ready” to run, but I cannot recall the specifics of the auction, just that I saved the photos.

Years later I cant find any info on where it went, who originally build it, and what is going on with it today. Do any of you recall this one for sale or maybe have seen it ? Let me know if you have any info.
