Im new to your site and I am trying to find a 59 IM Roadester to purchase. Do any of you think that a trip to Carlisle in April would be helpful in finding a roadester to purchase?

Well, it has been reported that Henry Reisner, the man behind Intermeccanica, is planning on being at Carlisle.  There will be a few Intermeccanicas there that you can have a look at, but I have no idea if there will be any for sale.

I missed the boat not buying FeartheYorkie's well sorted IM D.  His had a 2L VW/Audi water-cooled, 914 front suspension, powder coated wheels and a soft & hardtop plus was on East coast for like $40k.  Was a nice tobacco color too. 

Yes you did. That was a fine automobile.

I agree Theron, not withstanding the condition of the car of course.  I have found with the changing US dollar to Can, it has caused quite a lift in the used car market IMO on IM's.... It happened also the last time our dollar tanked.  Currency fluctuations are a pain as they are very inflationary. 

Roadster windshield and roll up's are nice but the flares on a Roadster just doesn't blend well. ....Go through the brakes suspension and drive train. Pull the CMC roll bar and wheels, replace the plastic windshield, body and paint, some interior changes, fit the bumpers. New Stay Fast top and 1/4 boot. This could be made nice however, just the minimal items I listed it would cost a minimum of $8,000 -$9,000 add that to the purchase and as they say on Shark Tank .......... " So for that reason I'm out "

Sometimes Patience, is your best friend and a few visits to the C&C at Carlisle of West Coast reunions will provide enough info for you to start looking.  A solid used car is the best first option in my opinion if you can get close to the options you want you may never move to another car.  Buying twice gets expensive

What should a Canadian-built IM Convertible D go for?  It needs paint, interior, and engine removal to detail the motor compartment and the engine.

Sometimes when a car is shown here another guy snaps it up so be careful what you post for an opinion.  Just saying.

Surprising how fast a used Speedster or even fixer upper can get to that point eh Alan.  

I shop for the best parts prices are and have a reasonable painter available too.Still,  I've invested a little less than $9.400  into the current speedster Project 48, with the ever rising costs of parts body and paint etc. it doesn't take long for it too add up.

IM in Arizona   have you seen this one Bob

What is "Von Bach"?

Von Bach:

Von Bach was a DC Comic Book character that was defeated by Superman, the Von Bach dam near the Tugeni Resort, it's a campsite in Namibia, Gib von Bach was a cinematographer, Baron Alexander von Bach was an Australian politician, but the most likely reference for this use of the von Bach name is Von Bach Industries which manufactures a third person shooter game.

I'm not a Jeopardy contestant I just Googled von Bach. I was curious and since you asked....

That's funny, and all the potential results are why I did not Google it.
