Auto Factoids for the Week of April 23, 2017 Mazda, Ford, Lamborghini

Auto Factoids for the Week of April 23, 2017

April 25, 1970 – First Mazda in the US

I remember seeing the first Mazda cars in the U.S. I was 12 or 13 and I recall thinking – Why?   We still had the big 60’s cars and really didn’t see a need for the small cars.  The first rounds fo the Japanese imports were well thought of, perhaps unfairly and reliability was an issue.  But the Mazda has come a long way.  I remember back in 1989-90 when the  Mazda Miata (MX-5).  It was a “girls” car (so I thought…don’t judgement) and dealerships were charging quite a bit over invoice and getting that price, at least out in California.  But have things changed.  See the times they put down in SCCA events and even at my local SCCA chapter where I run my Corvette, I don’t think less of this generation of Mazda.

The car had some ‘socialization’ issues and it took a few years to get a good network of dealerships in the U.S.  However, by the mid 1970’s Mazda’s were emission compliant and figured out how to get 90 hp out of just 70 cubic inches.

April 28, 1916 – Ferruccio Lamborghini born in Renazzo di Cento, Italy.

Ferruccio Lamborghini

Renazzo isn’t far from Modena, Italy, which is ‘Mecca’ for Italian cars.  Ferruccio’s family were grape farmers and didn’t just jump in to designing cars, but started out in the tractor business Lamorghini Trattori.   Then he started an oil heater factory that turned into an air conditioning factory.  In fact he didn’t start Automobili Lamborghini until 1963.  It’s a shame those car never caught on!!

1963 350 GTV

Note:  It takes me a couple of days to put these together – not working straight though, mind you – as I was getting ready to finish this up I ran across an article May 2017 edition of Hemmings Motor News (my personal favorite automotive magazine publisher) on the 1959 Lamborghini DAL 35 Super Tractor.   The company is now part of SDF and they also sell other band name tractors like SAME, Dutz-Fahr and a couple of others.  According the Hemmings article they use the Lamborghini Bull logo.

April 28, 1953 – Kaiser-Frazer buys Willys.

Kaiser-Frazer car production was a mixed bag in the 1950’s.  Some typical 50’s cars were produced and some exciting like the Henry J and the Kaiser Roadster of 1954 and the Kaiser Darrin. The Frazer name had faded away by then and Kaiser purchased Willys for $63,381,175 and formed the Kaiser Willys Corporation.  They exited the passenger car market to focus on utility vehicles, including the Areo-Willys.  Kaiser took their business overseas to Argentina,  Israel, Netherlands and continued make utility vehicles until 1962.  By 1963 the company was called the Kaiser Jeep Corporation and was sold to American Motors in 1970.

Last of the passenger cars Areo-Willys

April 29, 1959 – Ford builds 50,000,000 car.

That car was a 1959 Ford Galaxie that came out of the Dearborn factory.  It was a white 4 door sedan with the 292, engine.  It was actually a Ford Fairlane 500 Galaxie and the first time Galaxie was used on a Ford car.  Fast forward – but not too far – and the Fairlanes, Fairlanes 500, and the Galaxies were to become monster muscle machines in the mid to late 60’s!!!

Pop-Up Car Show – T-Birds and Ranchero Fairlane 500

As with most car guys, I have an active eye for cool cars.  I could be walking down the street or driving anywhere and spot a cool car that needs it’s picture taken.

Last Sunday was one of those days.  Driving past a gas station that I drive by every day my “cool car spidey senses” kicked in and I had to stop.

The cars were there supporting the opening of a local hair and nail salon.  Now I’m not one for gets his nails done…but if they can keep cool car set up out side…I’m might might stop in for a perm!!   (If I start growing hair again!!!)  

Take a look at the cars that showed up.

Love this line up!!! Reverse opening door on this coupe!!!

Love this rod!!!!

No bright work on this 40’s era car. Great lines for this coupe!

Check out the painted steel wheels…Love that look!

This T-Bird is in original condition.

Love that 390 Engine!

All original ’57 T-bird – 312 engine in awesome condition and it’s driven.

This was my favorite. (No not the SUV) It’s the ’69 Ford Ranchero Fairlane 500 (yes that’s a real thing!)

Love the stripes!!

Interior is as it was when it rolled out of the factory – radio delete, no A/C.

I have to say I loved the 69 Ranchero Fairlane 500.  It had the 351C engine.  I spoke with the owner who has several classic cars and really loves them, in particular, this Ranchero.   I understand why!!!

Thanks for reading.

Barrett-Jackson Classic Car Auction – Scottsdale, AZ 2017 Videos 6-7

Welcome back to  our recent trip to Barrett Jackson Classic Car Auction 2017 in Scottsdale, AZ.  Keep in mind these videos were part of the our Facebook Live event and I’m sharing them here on our blog.  Quality is ‘iffy’ in spots but if you’ve never been to some this huge it’s cool to see some of the areas that the TV coverage doesn’t always show.

These next two videos give you a little look at the auction area. 


In this video I’ll take outside and into the staging areas.  Now we mere mortals aren’t allowed to be in these areas but if you are cool about you can often get up close and personal with some of the cars.

 

 

Nice Road Runner waiting in the staging area at the auction.

 

More coming including some discussion with the stage crew and one of the sellers – and my experiences driving the New Camaro SS and RS.

Is My Car Rare? 1971-1973 Mustangs

It’s every muscle/antique/collector car owner’s dream that their car is “Rare”.  However, determining that your car is rare can be tough. So, there is nothing cooler then having the numbers/statics that help prove that your car is special.  Take such as the Marti Reports for Ford products.  They provide those numbers for the Ford collector.

If you aren’t familiar with the products Kevin Marti  can provide here is a link to my post where I the Marti Report for #ProjectSportsRoof – Classic Mustangs – #ProjectSportsRoof’s Marti Report .

There are other similar services for other brands like PHS (Pontiac Historic Services) which has similar documentation.  Whatever your favorite car maker – go check out forums that are related to that brand and ask around.   Now that I have a 1973 Mustang, I hang out at 7173Mustangs.com a wealth of knowledge exist here as well great looking cars and enthusiastic owners from all over the world.

The Marti Report #ProjectSportsRoof show that is is 1 of 76 with that paint and trim codes.  No doubt it is ‘rare’ if you boil the data down far enough and that’s great.  I as mentioned in the posting above that’s great to boast at the local car club hangout. But what does it mean for value?

Logically someone, who has been exposed to car values through the web or the online car auctions like Mecum and Barrett-Jackson, can equate rarity to value.  Just count the number of times the auctioneer says the word “rare”.  But really what equates to value is ‘desirability’ and rarity is a component of desirability.  There are a lot more Boss 302 Mustang produced in 1969 or 1970 then  76 in 1973, but the body style of my Sports Roof isn’t as desirable as the 1970 or 1969 Boss.  So during this Classic Car Auction season in Arizona,  keep that in mind when you are attending an event live or virtually.

But value isn’t everything….you have to enjoy your ride!!!

They Made How Many? 1959

I haven’t done one of these in a while, but I was reading an article from the ” Worlds Most Excellent” automotive publishing enterprise – Hemmings.  An article in the January 2017 issue of Classic Cars publication is a piece written by Jeff Koch (who is their – West Coast/Southwest guy) on GM’s Flattop designed cars of the 1959-1960 era.  These were massive cars with huge trunks and tons of  wrap around glass.

This a 1959 Pontiac Bonneville Flattop 4 door

This a 1959 Pontiac Bonneville Flattop 4 door- ain’t it huge?

According to the article these were just a two-year deal – ’59-’60.  So that got me to thinking how many were made?

Over all car production for 1959, which still saw the likes of DeSoto, Edsel (its last gasp of breath), Studebaker,  Imperial (as a separate brand…again) and even the Metropolitan, as producer of cars.    The leader for that year was Chevrolet in first place with just over 1.46 million cars produced followed by Ford in close range with 1.45 million cars produced.  The rest of the field looked like this:

Plymouth with 458, 261 (in third place which gives you an idea how the rest fared) followed by  Pontiac with 383k, then  Oldsmobile with 382K and  Rambler with 374k.   Buick managed 285K and  Dodge produced 156k, which was just slightly than Mercury with 15ok and Cadillac with 142K cars produced.  The field rounded out with Studebaker driving 126k out of the factory and a substantial for Chrysler with just 69, followed by Desoto with 45k, Edsel with 44k and Lincoln/Continental with just 26k.  At the bottom stood Metropolitan and Imperial 22k and 17k respectively.

So an estimated 2,655,686 cars were produced by GM in that year.  That’s a lot of flattops this include Cadillacs that didn’t escape the design.
1959-cadillac-sedan

Nor did the Corvair!!

So where are the now?  I just don’t see that many around and I’m sure it’s due to the 2 year only style and finding all that wrap around glass.

Have you seen one of these cool designed GM Flattops?  Drop me a note and pic and I’ll publish it up.

Thanks for reading.

A Couple of Mustang Things – Line-Lock and Mustang Crossing

As I work on getting more restoration work on #ProjectSportsRoof I thought I’d share a couple of Mustang things that popped up.

There are a number of reasons I love Ford products, in particular Mustangs.  One of those is the fact that it didn’t need the bailout money a few years back, choosing to tough it out and some of the innovative/purposeful special purpose options.

I recently received my Ford Mustang ‘Go Further’ brochure.  I’m not including the 310 hp they are dragging out of the 2.3L EcoBoost (I’ve often said “I don’t want anything on my dash that says Eco!!!!”  but wow to the 320 lb-ft of torque. Don’t even think bout the 435 hp and 400 lbs-ft of torque from the 5.0L in the GT…come on!!!!  I can do with out the heated and cooled seat…meh…   However, the Track Apps, MagneRide and launch control are bomb.

The most #awesome purpose built is the Electronic Line-Lock!!!!  Come on…that’s what every weekend racing warrior (and spirited every day driving!!) wants a car manufacture to be thinking about!!!    The Electronic Line-Lock keeps the front brakes locked while you ‘warm up’ the Mustang’s rear tires….come on I don’t have that in my Corvette!!!  But maybe I can figure it out for my 1973 ‘Stang.

It looks something like this…exactly like this:

 

Here’s a great little destination (after you warmed up the tires).  Located at the corner of “No Where” (Hwy 90) and “U’r Lost” (Hwy 82) is this little place called Mustang Crossing.

Great place for a 1973 Mustang photo shoot!!!

Thanks for stopping by.  More coming up on #ProjectSportsRoof.
