This week, it is my turn to list my favorite offerings on the AutoHunter auction site, and because of the varied types of cars on the site this week, it was a bit challenging. What I ended up doing was to pick one car from four different classes of collector cars:
Interestingly, each category is filled by a car made in America. All are different but all also fill different categories in the collector car hobby.
In a nutshell, I created a 4-car collection from the AutoHunter site that would give me different cars for different places and events. Buying all four would make for a very nice way to start a collection or to grow an existing one. Good luck bidding and if you feel the need to have a varied collection, feel free to bid on all of them.
The Viper continues to be more and more popular and is truly an American supercar. All were handmade in Detroit and offer dramatic throwback looks combined with great performance. They are uncivilized in many ways, but few cars built in the 1990s are more fun to drive. These cars will continue to grow in popularity and cars like this 5,000-original-mile Viper make for collector grade examples.
This Lasalle 50 is a stunning 1930s American luxury sedan, and it was a step above the offerings from Ford or Chevy, being set up as a Cadillac sub brand. It would be a fun car to take for a drive with the entire family on weekends to a show. This car has just had a 3-year restoration completed and is as show worthy as it is a nice driver. Beyond just local car shows, a Lasalle as nice at this one would likely be welcome at a number of concours events as well.
This 1973 Camaro is the end of the run for the original great design of the second-generation Camaro, and being a tribute, it is bound to sell for less money than an original Z28 yet offer all the looks of the real McCoy. Powered by a 350ci V8 that features aftermarket headers, aftermarket aluminum intake, an Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor, chrome valve covers, and a chrome Edlebrock open-element air cleaner, and backed by a 4 speed manual gearbox, this Camaro is likely to go as good as it looks.
The 1964 Corvette recently received a frame-off restoration and is powered by a 327ci V8 backed by a 4-speed manual transmission, an option critical for any classic sports car. Updates include Autometer gauges, and American Racing wheels with Kumho tires. These C2 Corvette roadsters are some of the most stunning looking cars ever built in the U.S. and truly are a classic sports car equal in performance to many European cars of the era. Combine that with the service costs of a Chevy and this C2 makes for a compelling alternative to offerings of the era from Germany and Italy.
