  1. It is a lovely looking car, i do enjoy brown on a 911 after owning a bitter chocolate example.
  2. Does anyone have any background on this P car? Do I recall it spent some time with Duttons?? https://classicthrottleshop.com/1973-porsche-911-e-targa/ Cheers and merry Christmas
  3. Ganz's story is worth reading, and to think he ended up in Australia working for Holden.
  4. Jeff, check the wire between your fuel sender and gauge for high(er) resistance (I assume the original wiring may be brittle etc), and alternatively bypass with a new wire to see if that improves your fuel gauge reading. Wouldn't hurt to double check earthing locations too. I, as electricity is lazy and will take the path of least resistance! Cheers
  5. Aren't these from the Porsche Classics Webster collection? Most of the inspections reports were not favourable, the 912 didn't run, the Ferrari woudn't rev / idle, oil leaks.
  6. Not sure if this has been discussed, but what value does this represent? Thanks https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/_/SSE-AD-5067750?_ga=2.142623094.234011431.1529661221-1690455678.1520480594 and this?? https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/_/OAG-AD-15914012?_ga=2.172426720.234011431.1529661221-1690455678.1520480594

  8. That 5% is for the buyers premium. Its a different world for the sellers. As stated above I have actually spoken to Shannons about this as we have a couple of cars from a deceased estate to move, one being a vintage Packard and a XK150 Jaguar. We decided not to pursue the Shannons auction path as it is simply too expensive. Also they will charge you a garaging fee if your car doesn't sell and you're slow to remove it. Again, ring them and find out for yourself.
  9. http://www.motorcartel.com.au/blog/the-pros-and-cons-of-selling-your-car-at-auction-in-australia/ "According to Abc.net.au, auctioneer commissions generally range from 11-25%. Some auction houses such as Shannons (classic car auctioneers) operate on a slightly different system; for example Shannons charges a fixed $550 entrance fee plus 11% commission on the sale price." Thus the seller of this 930 did not get $181K in the hand. Probably somewhere betweem $165 - $170K. The fixed fee of $550 is for detailing and photos, I doubt they would let you "do it yourself". Those conditions above are applicable to buyers. Shannons only introduced buyers premiums recently.
  10. Ring and ask, I've only repeated what I was told by Shannnos (Sydney branch).
  11. No, Shannons would have charged betwen a 10 to 12% sellers commission to the hammer price. They alone charge $400 to 500 for detailing and photos alone. They have a sliding scale and it also depends on whether a reserve in in place as well (slight discount for unreserved lots). I enquired about this with them only a month or so ago. They get it coming and going!
  12. Okay, $155K, after owning a "bitter chocolate" coupe, which come to think of it was a bit crap (conversion), ah who am I kidding I don't mind brown, as my brother says, you can't polish a turd, but you can roll it in glitter.
  13. Shannons have only introduced the buyers premium in the last year or so. Agree it's crap, given the sellers are paying 10 - 12%.
  14. Not sure if this has been discussed, but what's the consensus on value on this longhood? https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/Porsche-911-1970/SSE-AD-5054395/?_ga=2.45659491.671253720.1519853280-1454289614.1508725472
