Joe: I entered the 1960 Triumph Roadster that I bought from MotoExotica on 12-12-12 in yesterday’s Laguna Beach Car Show, and she was awarded “Best in Class” for Foreign Sports Cars through 1974, a field of at least a dozen cars all in very nice condition. The only major additions I’ve made to the exterior of the Triumph can be seen on the front end and the trunk lid. On the front, I installed a Moss Motors badge bar for driving lights and a couple of badges. I also had a 2nd badge bar built similar to one that I saw on the cover of a magazine featuring a TR3. The 2nd badge bar can easily accommodate 4 badges. If there was an award to the car with the most badges, the TR would have won hands-down with 6!

On the trunk lid, I installed a luggage rack that is only temporarily attached to the car. I didn’t want to drill 4 holes in her (“Justine”) trunk lid for mounting a permanent luggage rack, so I bought a luggage rack from Victoria British that can be removed in just a few minutes. I found a leather suitcase at a local swap meet for $20, but splurged on the leather straps buying them from a small company in Italy. My wife put travel decals on the suitcase, lightly sanded them to give them a used look, and that’s about it. You can see the “Best in Class” award w/ribbon on the suitcase. The Laguna Beach Car Show is an annual event sponsored by the Laguna Beach Rotary Club, and this year’s event was the 11th annual show. The Laguna Beach Car Show will eventually be posting pictures of this year’s event which you might find interesting. Just wanted to let you know that the car is doing great and running extremely well. She gets a lot of looks and “thumbs up” whenever I drive her, which is often. She’s definitely not just a show car but more like a daily driver.

Hope you’re doing well. Sincerely, John Timko

I just wanted to thank you for your assistance in the purchase of my new Prowler. I was very anxious making this purchase online, and dealing with someone I didn’t know and hadn’t met in person. I even bought the car without ever having driven a Prowler! I have to say that the car exceeds my expectations, and is even more gorgeous than represented in the photos you posted. I truly appreciate your professionalism, and your efforts to have the car shipped safely to me out-of-state.

The car is absolutely fabulous, and you were terrific to work with (also, thanks to Agnes for putting up with my calls and emails)! Thanks for helping me find my new ride! The only problem with having this car is that I cannot go anywhere unnoticed — it is a head-turner!

Many thanks,

Hey Scott: Just a quick note to say “Hi!” and let you know how much I’ve been enjoying the Lincoln. Christmas was fun and all my friends and relatives got a big kick out of the car. Lots of ooohs and aaaahs! Last weekend I went to the Supernationals 2002 car show here in Albuquerque and afterwards took my family out in the car for a drive. Lots of stares, double-takes, and thumbs up! God! I love this car! It is such a dream! I’ve been following some of your recent eBay auctions and was really impressed by the 58 Lincoln. Wish I had the money and the space! But, my girlfriend and I are planning a summer wedding sooooo…..no more cars for a while since we gotta pay for the wedding! Well, Scott, you take care. I’ll keep an eye on your auctions and pass them on to my friends and family. Thanks for everything!

Hey Scott; Well I made it back home! The car (1990 Porsche 928) is Great! I stopped the first night at Evansville Indiana, It had been a long day for me, and I was getting tired. I forgot to ask you about the wheel lock nuts, and if there was a tool/key for them. I see now that the locks are all missing so I was concerned for naught. I could just imagine getting a flat, and not being able to get a wheel off. I took the car directly to German Motors and had Joe look it over. He gave me a thumbs up and felt that all of the little gripes were easily fixed, and the car should be a keeper. I could not find a manual for the CD/radio, so trying to figure out how to adjust it will take some time. I had brought a couple of CD albums with me, and it was rather enjoyable listening to them along the way. I don’t know how your trip went, but I have never made that trip before without encountering rain, sleet, snow, sun, wind, or what ever. This time it was warm and sunny all the way. Is that a good sign, or what? Thanks for your patience with me, perhaps our paths will cross again someday.
