1938 Phantom Corsair

Rust Heinz designed and planned to put the Phantom Corsair, which cost approximately $24,000 to produce in 1938 (equivalent to about $370,000 in 2010), into limited production at an estimated selling price of $12,500. Unfortunately Heinze died before it could go into production. So there was only one built, that is setting in a Museum in Reno.

Makes my back hurt just thinking of trying to bend over to get in that thing! :yum:

Woman uncovers amazing exotic car collection in grandmother's garage
By Gary Gastelu | Fox News

http://www.foxnews.com/auto/2018/08...ic-car-collection-in-grandmothers-garage.html

The next time your grandmother asks you to help her clean the house, do it!

A woman recently recounted on Reddit the reunion she had with a collection of exotic cars stored in her grandmother’s cluttered garage.

She said she felt like an archaeologist as she took the cover off a white 1981 Lamborghini Countach that was parked between a Ferrari 308 and MG T, but didn’t reveal where they were located.

The cars had been purchased by her late grandfather for an exotic car rental business that he ran for a while, before rising insurance costs forced him to close it.

He kept the cars, but didn’t take very good care of them. She said he left them outside and in a series of leaky garages, and that they’ve been in this one for over 15 years.

None of them run, and they are definitely worse for wear inside and out, although their bodies are in good condition.

She said grandma is looking to get rid of them soon, but that they’re not officially for sale yet. Fully restored, they could be worth well over $500,000.

At the moment, both women are staying anonymous and aren’t interested in doing any more publicity beyond the Reddit post.

started to check out other parts of the forums, after digging myself out of a snow drift over on the snow cat forum, got to say, there is a life outside of snow cats

yup, I got a few antique cars, bought my first one when I was 12 and still have it. many times the history/story is worth more then the car,

this is my 1915 Stutz Bearcat, I restored it about 20 years ago, wow, does time fly...
