Find someone with access to LexisNexis. Back in the day I worked for my dad during summers off in college and he had me doing stuff in LexisNexis. Its scary the amount of info you can find about someone on there.Do you guys think I could use one of these services to find the original owner of my Porsche? I've tried all sorts of methods with no luck.
Still got one of the old keys right?My old 914-6 finally made it upon BaT yesterday. https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1971-porsche-914-6-10/
It is a lot better looking than I was expecting based on the discussion I had with the current owner. I still am not going to bid on it. I suspect it will go somewhere between $80k-$90k.
I recall claims that it meant a full respray but don't actually know if that was the case.
There was a body shop near where I grew up in NJ, neighbor was formerly a partner in it, that had a young guy who I guess went and got trained on doing flip flop/chameleon paint jobs in the mid 90s. We ended up with quite a few cars driving around with crazy paint jobs that I guess he was practicing on, same house was always selling them. There was one or two years the probe came with a minor flip flop paint and he redid it with with the mustang color if I am remembering right. I recall a second gen Camaro, I think, with like the yellow/green flip. There were a few others but blanking.
Negative. Apparently, one of the features of this is that you could repaint an area the size of a quarter and not see a difference.I kind of get the appeal, but I can't imagine trying to get one fixed after a fender bender. I imagine 95% end up with mismatched paint.
Everyone has their conspiracy theory. Lots of bidders don't spend time humping the listings like the masses. Besides, most auctions don't have a linear bidding plot at all.One hour left on this and another unexplained huge jump in bidding on BaT. Bidding was slow and steady during the week and still at $5300 this morning. Mrmuertos jumps in today and launches right to $7500. Seller then declares to the bidders that the reserve is off.
It's all the goons that missed the E30 M3 and 964 boat bidding up slow-ass econoboxes to take to Radwood. If that car were on craigslist, it would be $5500-$7500.
The slightly impractical fun car market also seems to be going a little wild right now with people expecting to commute less. It might go for more than you're suggesting on CL, but IMHO it shouldn't. It's a nice car, but there's no way I'd pay five figures for it. In fact if I had an E30 it'd be going up right now. :laugh:It's all the goons that missed the E30 M3 and 964 boat bidding up slow-ass econoboxes to take to Radwood.

I don't even think it'd be that much. They pop up randomly around here for 2500-4000$ in great shape.It's all the goons that missed the E30 M3 and 964 boat bidding up slow-ass econoboxes to take to Radwood. If that car were on craigslist, it would be $5500-$7500.
Yeah, but vert = $1k at least below market. Vert + auto even cheaper.I don't even think it'd be that much. They pop up randomly around here for 2500-4000$ in great shape.
A friend picked up a gold 325i vert from the original owner last year. Paid $2800 for it and the car had 64,000 miles on it.

These are basic $2-3k cars with 100k. Clean, nice, maint. records? Sure, maybe $4.5k-$5.5k. Manuel 4-banger, and absolutely zero rust and less than 75k miles? maybe $5-7k. The only desirable trim was the 325is, everything else doesn't do the "magic" stuff folks chasing M3s are after unless you do an engine swap and a ton of suspension stuff.
Either way, $10k is crackpipe for that car.
