That $4,000 one with the new engine could be a deal, depending on who made the motor & how honest the seller is.August 24, 2011 at 9:47 am #246003Paul MossbergKeymaster
Nice to see Bob’s Classics is still pricing their cars “reasonably”. $11,900? Rally?
I visited Bob’s Classics showroom on a family vacation to Florida. He (yes, there really is a “Bob”) had some great cars. And all in great shape.
But he prices them, shall we say, rather enthusiastically?
I hope he gets his $11,900 for that TD!

Always amazes me why someone would put all that detail work into the outside and interior and do nothing to the engine. I’ll bet he’d get 11k if he cleaned and detailed that engine to look like the rest of the car.August 24, 2011 at 6:13 pm #246005Bill GouldParticipant
My engine doesn’t look great, either, but it works fine and I keep it in good running order. The Lafer is pretty much a cash-and-carry project, so my extra bucks have been going to the more visible bits here lately. Giving up expensive whiskey helped.

As a Kentuckian, bourbon is better anyway. I’m a bit biased, 80% of the worlds bourbon comes from an area within a 50 mile radius of my house!August 25, 2011 at 5:13 pm #246007Montie HendersonParticipant
Dennis what part of KY are you in. I’m just above Dayton, OHAugust 25, 2011 at 8:59 pm #246008Dan RosaParticipant

Montie, I live in Bardstown. That is about 30 miles south of Louisville. It is a very scenic, historic little town with a lot going on. Come see us!August 26, 2011 at 11:56 pm #246010MarkParticipant
I’ll help derail this thread. I was in Louisville last summer (June 2010). All that greenery was beautiful. I didn’t have my car back then, but maybe I’ll get a chance to make a road trip again.August 27, 2011 at 9:53 am #246011Montie HendersonParticipant
Dennis, we’ve been in Bardstown several times, usually on our way to TN (sisters & mom live in Nashville) or FL (vacation). If memory is correct, MY Old KY Home is there and one of my favorite adult beverage museums is close. We’ve never taken a trip yet in the TD, Cincinnati has been the furthest so far. At 6’1″ 210# there is alot of leg to stuff in there. About a hour or two at a time is all these old joints can handle.August 27, 2011 at 5:40 pm #246012
Maybe meet in the middle someday!
