While searching a warehouse for another car, I stumbled across a pile of parts that were described as 'a whole 1911 Metz, except for the seat'.
I was immediately intrigued because I really like the prewar cars and the Metz is local. The car appears to be a Model 22 (there is 4 cylinder engine in the center of the pile). The owner says it is a 'roadster' and the front cowl does look like some of the pictures at MetzAuto.com.
Long story short, my enjoyment of restoring old cars is the act of restoration. After it is done the car must be sold to make room for a new project. I am not really in a position that I can lose money on each car so I try to pick ones with good resale value. I've tried to find some resell numbers for the Metz but it has been quite difficult. A post here on aaca.org says they don't go for much because the friction drive makes them impractical. I saw an auction where it appeared a 1912 Model 22 went $30K. I haven't found much else. Any ideas?
