600 Mini's are to be assembled in one place, as a Guiness World Record is attempted.
On the 3rd of August, 2019, event organiser Brian Sankey hopes to have 600 Mini's collected together, to spell "Mini 60".
The Japanese sports car comes of age.
Fortunately we stocked up on plenty of MR2's 20 months ago, and so now we are sitting back as they boom in value. Despite the fact that the earlier AW11 has seen an en even greater rise, the later, more curvacious SW20 is picking up pace fast now. The time to buy was of course, 20 months ago !. Call us if you want to benefit from the Classic Car Industry, as it continues it's endless rise due to no more of these cars being made !. The car shown does have very high kms and many modifications, and so one can imagine what our very low km original cars are worth.
The Sydney Morning Herald has reported the fastest monthly drop since December, 2008
As we have predicted with such accuracy so many times (July the 15th, 2016, in 2017, July the 23rd, 2018 and November the 27th), property is about to fall rapidly, when all of the contributing factors that we previously mentioned in the previous news items, all combine. Fortunately, all of our work with Classic and Modern Classic Cars is also coming true !...........up, up and even further up.
Group B Rallying ended in 1986, and with it the chance to ever see the replacement for the awesome Quattro.
Group B Rallying was the fastest and most exciting era of Rallying of all time, up until recent times. It has taken 32 years to get close to replicating what was the ultimate form of motorsport between 1984 and 1986. If the new, enhanced rules for Group S had been allowed to run in 1987, we would have seen this lighter, shorter and faster car with a mid-engined layout, which would have broken the mould for Audi.
This is one special Lotus Cortina, having been driven by Jim Clark, Graham Hill, Jackie Ickx,and Sir John Whitmore
The car is also one of just three Group 5 works cars built by Lotus for the 1966 Saloon Car Championship, and carries the now legendary registration of PHK 614D
Our predictions from July the 15th, 2016, again in 2017 and once again on July the 23rd of 2018 have now come true.
In tonight's ABC 7.30 report, yet another part of our overall predictions (see our News Items on those dates) regarding the future of the Australian housing market has come to fruition. In this report, it is confirmed that 1.2 Million Interest Only loans are due to rollover into Interest and Principle exactly when we said that they would, in the months of October and November, 2018. Many will not be able to pay the increased Mortgage payments.
Classic Cars are the ONLY solid investment left !
From early soft-window Targa 911's through to GT3's...........
This Collection has something for almost every Porsche enthusiast.
As Range Rover Classic 2 doors continue to explode in price, here is a fantastic 1977 restoration for AU$220,000
Yes, as we all know Range Rover 2 doors are just going up every day, which is why we have so many of them. Now even the post 1976 examples are fetching great money.
Jaguar have a look at Rallying, with an F-Type !
This event appears only to have been for a bit of fun, or was it ?
$39,500 is the price for this great MKIII Supra.
Following in the footsteps of, and now joining the JZA80 Toyota Supra, is the less well known MA71, which was also a great car. Several of these great cars have sold amonst Collectors over the past 5 weeks for rapidly rising amounts.
Whilst select Japanese Classic Cars have become part of the mainstream boom in prices, it is still the "special" ones that receive all the attention.
The legendary Land Rover Series 1 just keeps on giving !.
This one is a very early (1949) "Lights behind the grille" Land Rover 80'', and has been fully restored. That said, it still surpasses the £50 and 60,000 ($92,000-$111,000) that we have seen previously.
The latest article in Money Magazine has hit the shelves, and is now on sale.
Mark Haybittle has given his views on the market over the past 12 months, as well as his predictions for what is coming next.
Now that many are catching on that Japanese Classic Cars are continuing to skyrocket, this great car is part of the movement.
Whilst this car is rather special, it is indicative of the movement. This car is one of the rarer Mirage RX7's, and is indeed a lovely example. Another Series I RX7 sold for $55,000 last year through Shannons Auctions, and so this car is well priced. Fortunately, we purchased plenty of Mazda RX7's throughout 2016 and 2017 for $5.5-7000, and so are excellently placed to capitalise on the boom in Japanese Classics. Why not call to discover the next Classic Cars that are about to boom ?.
Yes, another great example of a Nissan Skyline GTR R34 V-Spec II is for sale, as they continue to boom in price.
As the tsunami of Japanese Classic Cars and Modern Classic's gains momentum, we are on board all the way. In the wake of the AMP, one of Australia's great Corporate Icons crashing by 24.5% on the stock market yesterday, it is great to be investing in an asset class that always rises............Classic Cars !.
One of Australia's most respected economists is now saying that a Property Crash is possible.
Yes, as we predicted on July the 15th, 2016, again in 2017 and once again on July the 23rd of 2018, property values are heading South fast now........
Yet whilst this is happening, even we are suprised by the way that the media have jumped on the "Negativity Bandagon" to point out to anyone listening just how rapidly the fall is taking place. Whilst we sold all of our property last year ahead of the downturn, we cannot help feeling that the media's over-reaction to what is simply part of a cycle, may lead to the sinking of the ship.
Fortunately Classic Cars always rise unless one purchases the wrong cars, as some Ferrari and Porsche owners are now discovering. One or two Ferrari's have receded slightly on value, as we reported earlier this year...............which is why we do not ever hold Ferraris' !!.
