My mom generally has for years popped the plates of the trophies and donated them to the local boy scouts - they recycle them for Pinewood Derby awards.  

That said, the Concours d'Elegance events have great awards and I especially love the Dayton Concours d'Elegance awards. 


I like this idea.  However, I’m happy I have my dads ACD awards from the 50s and 60s, especially for the cars we still have.

 

Another exception would be Amelia and Pebble give out trophy’s that are works of art.  Fisher Island back in the day they were literally art.

You have sold me on believing your mom to be world class.

The listing says its on consignment to 'Classic Car Deals' but still physically located at the consignors home in NH. I wonder what parts it's actually missing/lacking to finish?

A color change from "Rossa Barrett"?

I guarantee the "dealer" won't be able to tell you anything other than, "It's red."

So it would seem from the listing. It looks kinda like a craigslist lawnmower ad.


That is a disservice to CL lawn mower ads.

Matt, dont give the guy too much credit!

Everything that "dealer" (and I'm using that term loosely) has on his site is grossly overpriced.

There are guys that broker cars.  Ie, the see a car listing.  Copy it. Add 20-50 percent to the price.  If they get a bite , they negotiate the deal between the buyer and seller.  I am pretty sure that is what this guy does.  He used to have 1000s of adds when it was free on Craigslist.
 

 

search this forum: classic car deals, Cadillac Michigan

Love it! (NOT!) The 'dealer' has six pictures in the ad? And four of them are of a 1954 Chevy pickup?

 

Come on Wayne!   Buy one get one free!
