Wheeler Dealer returns next week

Post by g.willikers » Mon Apr 02, 2018 4:25 pm

Wednesday, April 11, 9pm on the Velocity Channel.
They're scheduled to do an Opel GT, one of my favorites.
They look like a baby Corvette Stingray.

Very cool and well made.
I had an orange colored one, like the one in the picture above.
Wish I still had it.
Oh well, can't keep them all.

There's two for sure I should never have sold:
Alfa Romeo Sprint Speciale

Bought it and resold it in 1965 for $5,000.
Can't even imagine what it would be worth today.
And
Jaguar XKE 12 cylinder convertible

Bought and sold it for the same $10,000 in 1974.
What on earth was I thinking??
Oh, right, had to pay for my racing, that always came first.
