And I highly doubt that a bits and peices car would be just thrown in amognst a collection like this without some interesting history.
I think its real I will let you know

Great car! The Grand Prix cassette radio looks to be a replacement as back thent he cassette player was a separate unit (as in mine), however, overall the car is in impressive shape. If I did not recently buy mine I would be very interested in yours.

I would say contact Karl Middelhauve and see if he knows of any intersted parties. You can check out http://www.m-100.cc. There have been some on eBay recently. One sold for $275K but was Roy Orbison's with very few miles and another with a 'Buy It Now' price of $108,8K.

Ye g-ds!

As a member of the club running www.m-100.cc, yes, come visit the site.
There are a few dealers amongst the members that can help you arrange sales of these cars if that is your aim. If you'd like an idea of exactly the kind of magic you hold in this garage, we can indeed fill you in.

Also, I can answer one of your questions, but you need to drop me an email. I won't do so here on the thread.

Thx -CTH

Hi,

nice collection! For me, the first step would be to decide which ones are worth restoring and which ones are parts cars (if any). You'll need a 600 expert for this. Then, you can check each car thoroughly and make a list of the most obvious to-dos. Again wich some expert adcvice, you can then put a price tag on the restoration of each car. This gives you a chance to make up your mind which cars you want to keep ...

Regards,
Oliver
