The tale of one Porsche Turbo, and why the 930 is called the Widowmaker
This is a tale of one particular well travelled Porsche 930 Turbo, and touches on the love that some have for this version of the 911. For all of you that have owned, or driven a 930 Turbo, you will clearly relate to the parts of this article that relate to driving this car on slippery roads with sheer drops at their edges !!.
Ford Escort RS2000 sells for AU$168,000 (£97,875) as prices boom again in Europe.
Silverstone Auctions latest sale in Birmingham has yielded some amazing results, on the back of the recent 2017 Porsche Auction. Modern Classic Car prices are booming again in Britain and Europe. An Audi Quattro sold for AU$120,250 (£69,750), and many Escort RS Turbo's attracted great results, as 1980's and 1990's cars move into the lead.
Now even Modern Classics have joined the ranks of cars being rebuilt by the Factory

Perfectly in line with our predictions earlier this year (See our Blogs), Jaguar's XJS Convertible has now passed AU$100,000.

Mark Haybittle discusses the major movers in the Classic Car Industry over the past 12 months.
As we predicted, the older 1950's to 1970's Classics are starting to fall away as the New Kids on the Block emerge.
As the average age of the purchaser's becomes older, the older cars start to fall away, and are now being replaced with later cars, including Supercars, and so things are becoming really exciting now.

The HAGI Report shows us some interesting statistics
Whilst HAGI has reported a "cooling" in the United States, Europe and South Africa are picking up pace again..............
It's great to see some cooling of the market in the U.S.A, as it will avoid any type of bubble scenario.
Now that Restorations are a MASSIVE part of the Classic Car Industry, this Video shows us why.....
The Classic Car Restoration Business is growing at a very significant pace now, and this Video brings our attention to the fact that these cars are never going to be built again............unless we rebuild them. That is why they are worth so much, and rise in value every day !.
The next boom in European Classic Car prices is just trickling into life......
Are you going to miss out..............AGAIN ?.
If you missed out on the 2013-2015 European Classic Car Boom, or are currently missing out on the massive rises going on in Australia, you may have another chance. The U.K market is just starting to move again. This very low mileage Porsche 924 sold for £26,100 (AU$44,237) at last Saturday's Silverstone Auctions Porsche Sale 2017. Even more amazing was the sale of a LHD 914-6 (NOT a great car !) for £49,450 (AU$83,813).
Remember that European Classic's never drop in value, unlike the U.S. and Australian cars which are tied to local economies with non-global populations.
Was it $7,000,000, or $8,000,000 for the Jaguar D-Type at auction in Melbourne yesterday ?
With the rapid rise of the Classic Car Industry in full swing in Australia now, it is little wonder that we are now seeing some heavier cars coming through. This particular Jaguar D-Type did have some particularly good racing heritage, despite claiming the lives of two of it's drivers. Despite solid bids up to $5.5,000,000, the car was passed in at Motorclassica yesterday, although is expected to be sold for the full sum in the coming days.
Jaguar MKII 3.8 Manual with Overdrive's continue their rise well beyond $120,000
The wonderful Jaguar MKII's have continued to rise in value, now a long way up on the $25,000 that they were 2 years ago. These are the cars that everyone wanted at one stage, because they were driven by all the most noteworthy members of the Underwolrd around London, and so people felt like a legend when driving them. London's Underworld used them in getaways, as they were fast for their day.
