Amazing isn't it. The bubble must burst one day. Surely you can't keep getting a million dollars for an XYGT (can you?) I sold mine for $4500 in the 80s and thought I was doing well. There's ebb and flow. Not that long ago good Nagaris were occasionally bringing $80,000. Now $60,000 is more around the mark. Although with demand outstripping supply, that could change.
You couldn't go to Goolwa without catching up with Fatty Finnis.
Michael left his mark on the old ProdSports days as a forceful driver of the ex-Donnelly E-type and the ex-Latham Porsche. One of my favourite memories of his racing was in his group N Mustang when he came up to lap a couple of Cooper Ss and drove straight between them without touching them but taking out both their mirrors. Ruth Franck was driving one of the Minis, not sure who was in the other one. Anyway, CAMS took a very dim view of that effort, don't know why.
