Damn it, Red Fred. Now I have a Fiat 850.  I'll have to fire sale my NSU Typ110 (fairly easy project), NSU TT (hard project) NSU Sport Prinz (needs engine work) and 1952 Singer roadster (with hot rodded Volvo drive train) because I said I'd get rid of cars before getting another and I got accustomed to having a roof over my head.  The Other Dave is going to hold it for me for a bit.  I told him it was your fault.

Hi Gang,
   Here's a wee gem offered by a great guy, and super Fiat mechanic.   I have no idea what the asking price is, but I've always  found Dave to be an honest, straightforward guy.   If you  really are interested, tell him that I sent ya, as he would probably be wondering how someone outside the Fiat Club contacted him on  this.

Arcaners,

Anyone in the Bay Area interested in a Bugeye Sprite? Somewhat of a project but not too heavy duty.

Contact me for details if one has been on your wishlist.

Hello,

I'm losing the local off-site storage that I've been using to keep classic cars out of the weather, and so I've decided to sell my 1970 Fiat 850 Sedan, rather than park it on the street perpetually, or store it farther away from home where I'll rarely drive it.  I've attached a single picture to this email, I have many more to share along with details about it's history, recent work, upgrades, etc. for anyone interested in being this neat car's next owner.  In general it looks good, runs and drives well, and is reliable with no pressing issues..  Please contact me at this email address off the mailing list if you or anyone you know might be interested.
Thanks!

-Dave Voss

Re: 1958 MG Magnette ZB Varitone on BaT

Ken Nelson
 

50 yrs ago in Chicago, I knew a guy who had a nice example of this one.  All black.  I'd never seen one before, and never saw another one after that experience.  
Can still remember my friend's face, but not his name - been awhile!

What a beaut!  On a visit to Washington several years ago we stopped in at a local Cars and Coffee and a lovely Magnette Veritone was in attendance.  After watching me lingering around his car for several minutes, the owner fulfilled a long held wish of mine and offered to let me and Mara take it for a spin.  It didn’t disappoint!  Just wonderful…

Awesome!

Last time I saw an MGB such as this was in Pune, India, part of the closed private collection of the local Mercedes Benz dealer.

Re: BaT does have the occasional Arcane vehicle, dat's for sure

Richard Ranch
 

I thought the market for these was around $20k five years ago but they come up so rarely I guess the sky is the limit.

I was the first bidder, but I'm assuming it'll go for 50k which is 45k more than I can afford. They only live 3 miles or so from me.  Besides, I should be looking for someone who has experience rebuilding NSU engines instead.

Re: Car Care Advice of Possible Benefit

Craig Parada
 

Thank you, David! I’ve been insured by Hagerty since they started offering boat policies for Amphicars some years ago, but had not seen this useful piece. It makes clear everything I did wrong laying the vehicle up for the move and now pandemic, but it’s good to know now, and mistakes will not be repeated! 
Thank you for thinking of us all.

THE MANY ROADS OF LIFE

Ken Nelson
 

Incredible roads and marvelous wisdom - should be spread around like honey - wish I knew where they all are - 

 

THE MANY ROADS OF LIFE

AND A FEW WORDS OF WISDOM

   

 

GREAT TRUTHS THAT LITTLE CHILDREN HAVE LEARNED:
1) No matter how hard you try, you can't baptize cats..
2) When your Mom is mad at your Dad, don't let her brush your hair.
3) If your sister hits you, don't hit her back. They always Catch the second person.
4) Never ask your 3-year old brother to hold a tomato.
5) You can't trust dogs to watch your food..
6) Don't sneeze when someone is cutting your hair..
7) Never hold a Dust-Buster and a cat at the same time.
8) You can't hide a piece of broccoli in a glass of milk.
9) Don't wear polka-dot underwear under white shorts.
10) The best place to be when you're sad is Grandma's lap.

 

 

 

GREAT TRUTHS THAT ADULTS HAVE LEARNED:  
1) Raising teenagers is like nailing Jello to a tree.
2) Wrinkles don't hurt.
3) Families are like fudge...mostly sweet, with a few nuts.
4) Today's mighty oak is just yesterday's nut that held its ground.
5) Laughing is good exercise. It's like jogging on the inside.
6) Middle age is when you choose your cereal for the fiber, not the toy.

 

 

 

GREAT TRUTHS ABOUT GROWING OLD  
1) Growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional.
2) Forget the health food. I need all the preservatives I can get.
3) When you fall down, you wonder what else you can do while you're down there.
4) You're getting old when you get the same sensation from a rocking chair that you once got from a roller coaster. 
5) It's frustrating when you know all the answers but nobody bothers to ask you the questions.
6) Time may be a great healer, but it's a lousy beautician.
7) Wisdom comes with age, but sometimes age comes alone.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

THE FOUR STAGES OF LIFE:  
1) You believe in Santa Claus.
2) You don't believe in Santa Claus.
3) You are Santa Claus.
4) You look like Santa Claus.

 

 

 

 

SUCCESS: 
At age 4 success is . . . . Not piddling in your pants.
At age 12 success is . . . Having friends.
At age 17 success is . . Having a driver's license.
At age 35 success is . . . . Having money.
At age 50 success is . . . Having money.
At age 70 success is . .. . Having a driver’s license.
At age 75 success is . ... . Having friends.
At age 80 success is . . .. Not piddling in your pants.

Pass this on to someone who could use a laugh.
 

Always remember to forget the troubles that pass your way; 
BUT NEVER
 forget the blessings that come each day.

 

  Remain calm!

Wash your hands!

If you’re reading this the world has NOT ended..............
