Weekend Quickies, Saturday, February 4, 2012

1974 Supercharged MGB - I know, I know, I'm the last person on earth who should be pointing out the typos and misspellings of someone else, but this ad is pretty amusing.

This is a really cool car. This 1964 MGB has a Moss Supercharger on it. (Or a "supper charger" as the seller calls it. - For more info on the supercharger, click here to find a PDF of the Summer 2003 issue of British Motoring magazine.)

The asking price of $8000.00 seems very reasonable given the supercharger and the condition of the rest of the car.

A big thanks to Jon for sending me the link to this car.

1974 Alfa Romeo Berlina - I have a soft spot for Alfa sedans.

This car has only been in New England for a year. It was a California car prior to that.

It needs some minor work - maybe two or three weekends worth - to be a near perfect car.

There aren't many classic Italian cars that are this fun to drive and can hold 3 of your friends.

Another big thanks to Jon for this car!

1985 BMW 745i - BMW never officially sold the 745i in the US, but quite a few made it here via the grey market.

This car has 200K miles on it, but looks to be in good shape.

It's important to get maintenance records with this car as parts, many of which need to be ordered from Europe, are expensive. The asking price is just $4000.00, but you could easily spend double that just to keep it on the road if the proper maintenance hasn't been done.

I don't get it, I thought the original MGB had, like, 95 horsepower?

Weird, I featured that Berlina last time it was for sale!

Chris - Sometimes I look at your blog and think that you might be the brother my mother never told me about! We share a lot of cars!
