GUY ALLEN YOURS TRULY writing about selling vehicles may turn out to be one of the great hypocritical acts in publishing, but let’s give it a go, since that’s more or less what this issue’s cover is about.Okay, let’s start with the simple stuff – have you ever sold a collectible car that you actually liked? There are lots of reasons for trying to do it, but only one or two of them actually work, in my experience.For a start, logic has nothing to do with any of this process – let’s establish that right from the start. It’s something you use to justify whatever ludicrous decision you just made, but nothing to do with the actual decision itself.For example, you’ve decided to sell your highly collectible E-type,…

seen something?

EL ON WHEELS Out for a stroll one evening I spotted this wedding car. Upon closer inspection I realised it was more than a burgundy Falcon with wedding ribbons. It was an EL GT. I can't remember the last time I saw one but this was a gem. COLIN HIGGINS - FRANKSTON, VIC HERALD Seeing this blue Triumph Herald reminded me of the Top Gear TV show when James May attepted to turn one into a yacht. As you'd expect it didn't go well. But this blue one was in pristine order and must have been a head turner in its day.

grab it while you can

IN CASE YOU missed it, recently we put together a book of some of our favourite muscle cars, called Aussie Muscle Car Legends. Inside we bolted together some of our best material on a selection of the cars that ‘made’ the greatest era in Australian motoring, and it’s been turned into a hardbound coffee table book. There’s a wealth of info plus some truly stunning photography. Stocks are getting low, so you might want to jump in. We’re pretty sure any car nut would be pleased to have it and it costs $40.
