Auction Watch: 67 Opel Kadett

Opel Kadett

Up for auction on Sep 3 in Auburn. This little cutie is recently restored with four-on-the-floor and a whopping 1.1 liter engine. That may not seem like much, but fans of Top Gear will know better. While I love Opels the real reason I’m listing this is that the auction company estimates that it will go for $1,500 – $2,250. My opinion is that are delusional. Mint old Opels have been pulling in the green lately. A very nice Manta sold recently on eBay for $10,000 and this Kadett is way cooler than that. Hopefully the low estimate won’t scare the bidders into thinking it’s not worth more.

Though if I was bidding I’d hope for the opposite.

See the full listing on th Auctions America site.

Bike Project Update – more bikes

The last thing I need right now is more project bikes, but when a pile of bikes present themselves for cheap on a police auction web site, I just can’t resist.

I picked up 6 more bikes. Three BMX bikes that need only a few brake parts each. One mountain bike that is complete except for one thumb shifter. One mountain bike that is  fixable but needs parts and work. Finally there is a once very expensive mountain bike that was in a bad accident. The aluminum frame is beyond repair but has some very good parts.

So the hoarding has begun. Hopefully though I can get most of these road-ready in a few weeks. We’re planning on having a yard sale and I’d like to get some of these out of the way. Should be fun.
