The Race of Gentleman comes to Santa Barbara this weekend for some legal street racing by the beach. We are excited to have the event so close to us this year. Early flathead powered Hot Rods and motorcycles will be headquartered at the Hilton and racing on the streets on Saturday. I have a few friends who will be racing their cars and I plan to attend and watch them run. The event kicks off on Friday night with a party at the Hilton.
Santa Barbara has a long history of Hot Rods running the streets back in the 50’s and should attract a lot of old timers like me plus some new young gear heads that enjoy building Hot Rods to race. Join in the fun and watch this epic event for Santa Barbara.
I have been having some luck selling some cars on Pewsplace.com so if you have one to sell please send me the information and I will list it for you. Never any charge for this service. As most of you know, the market for our style of cars has taken a back seat to the later model cars and that’s just a sign of the times and the age of the buyers who like these old cars. Don’t get alarmed, as there is always someone in the market for your car but maybe not at the price you are seeking. The exception car will always command a premium price but the average car certainly will not. I watch the market daily and keep track of transaction prices, not asking prices, as they sometimes can be a huge difference. Three months is the listing time and if you haven’t had any responses, you need to rethink your listing.
