Here’s my March 2011 summary of interesting posts on my other websites. Yep, shameless self-gloss!
Rare Sport Bikes For Sale
1992 Kawasaki KR250C3 KR1-S still in the crate!
This post has generated the most comments ever on a single post on my website. The seller is quote eccentric in his presentation and demands of the potential bidders. It’s a very rare opportunity to own a new 1992 KR1-S for sure!

Mike hits the Las Vegas Mid-America auction and files his report. He is definitely inspiring me to make this a company trip next year! Great post Mike, thanks so much for the first hand account!

Classic Italian Cars For Sale
1958 Fiat Fiat Abarth Zagato â€œDouble Bubbleâ€
It’s true, there’s almost as much to be skeptical of as there is to be excited about. But the fact remains, it’s a 1970 Porsche 911T with a buy-it-now for only $8500 (MD):
It was initially an Oregon car that was converted to 1977 style, â€short noseâ€ from a â€œlong noseâ€. The conversion was done correctly.
â€¢Rust free on exterior and suspension points
â€¢Rare factory Sunroof
â€¢Front chin spoiler
â€¢The gauges are from the 1970 911T, all are number type gauges for oil pressure & temperature
â€¢Comes with a CD ignition box
â€¢17 inch ARE (BBS look alike) wheels – 7s & 8s with fairly new Kumho tires
â€¢Black head liner
â€¢1977 interior style door panels
â€¢1977 2.7 liter CIS engine with 54K miles on the motor
â€¢901 transmission with A, F, M, S, X gearing
â€¢Paint is fair, good from 25 feet, there are many layers of paint on this car
â€¢Radio is lousy
â€¢1970 struts with new shocks and 1970 brake calipers
â€¢Windshield has a small semi-circular crack that will not grow any larger
â€¢The oil level gauge and clock do not work
â€¢The dash is a â€œdash coverâ€ type
Lots of mods, not original, not matching numbers, layers of paint… But relatively low miles for the year, PNW car (mostly rust free I expect) and only 54k miles on the motor makes me think this sub $10k car is worth a look regardless of the red flags.
